  3. Automatic page shuffling on books (indb) should be opt-in

    InDesign automatically changes numbering of files listed on a indb book.
    That's handy but may easily lead to disasters and should be an opt-in

    Sometimes I only create indb books when I'm near to finish a book. Each file is already numbered correctly and chapters begin on even pages.

    If I'm adding files to my indb one by one and unknowingly skip one of them, InDesign automatically changes page numbering on my files. The problem is that InDesign will also shuffle pages and save files as soon as I add them to my indb.

    On simple text books, that doesn't…

  4. Gif Export directly from Indesign

    Why of why in 2021 can't I export a multi page document from Indesign to an animated gif format - even just rudimentary controls to allow a basic slideshow gif with no transitions would be better than having to faff about in photoshop!

  5. File Handling selecting recents..

    File handling selectively delete recents.
    It would be great if you could selectively delete recent files by right clicking on them with options rename, delete, copy, replace. PDF expert by readdle is has a great way for doing this and is very helpful and fast for filing docs.

  6. Mywifiext

    MyWifiext is an official online address for setting up and configuring a Netgear Wi-Fi range extender. Also, it is one of the easiest and simplest ways to setup the range extender. Furthermore, Mywifiext allows the user to update the extender’s settings, configure, and install the range extender, among other things. Therefore, the users looking for ways to accomplish the Netgear Extender setup procedure should visit the official website, i.e., “Mywifiext.”

  7. Export to a Word/.doc file

    Would like to be able to export a project to Word. Which typically exporting to PDF is fine, there are some clients that require us to send them Word/.doc file. I've been exporting to PDF and from there exporting to Word, but that means much of the formatting is lost.

  8. Embed IDML data into INDD files for permanent single-file offline backwards compatibility

    Just embed IDML data into every INDD, at least optionally. A separate IDML file requires having foreseen the need for backwards compatibility, making sure it is up to date each time the INDD is changed, or resorting to server-side conversion, all of which are a nuisance and unnecessary.

    An IDML’s file size is usually anemic when compared to its INDD counterpart, so that is a non-issue.

    Even Photoshop asks you whether you want PSD files to be backwards compatible.

  10. PDF comments - Option to remove all resolved comments at once

    Option to remove all resolved comments at once. An option to remove all resolved comments in the comment window would be very interesting, because indesign has a performance issue with too much comment.

  11. Make it faster!

    I have 16GB of memory on my graphics card and 128 in my computer, but Indesign only utilises 2GB & 16GB respectively.

    I regularly create multi-page documents that need complex vectors, style sheets, table of contents, etc which I cannot create in Illustrator and would slow me down even more if I had to.

    I'm also using a 10-core 3.6Ghz i9 processor. I don't know how many cores InDesign uses, but I would like to know if it utilises all of my processor cores. If it doesn't, can you make it do so please.

  12. Combo box and list box csv import

    Hello, I was wondering if you all could make a system for Excel or CSV data to be imported into interactive elements like combo boxes and list boxes. Its a real pain to manually input an array of items and also not have the ability to edit them in their place. The current process requires deleting an element in the list, and retyping it and then manually type in alot of options. Imagine if having to make a combo box that included all 50 states.

  13. Worksharing across multiple users

    Being able to have multiple people working in the same file at once similar to how Autodesk Revit is formatted - there is one "central" file and each user has a "local" file that they work on and every time they save it saves back to the "central" as one master file. There is also a safe guard against two people doing the same work where if two users were on the same page, the second person to try an edit the same object would see an error message telling them that someone else owns that item and in order…

  14. Urgent support needed for .webp images in InDesign & Photoshop

    With the latest MacOS update Safari is now allowing .webp images. As a design studio we do LOTS of moodboards, research docs etc. gathering 100s of images at a time. Now I realise half need to be manually resaved — and in Preview of all places because not only are they not supported in InDesign, but Photoshop either. Urgent help needed!!!! This is adding so much time to my day.

  17. Allow option/alt+space keyboard shortcut for nonbreaking space

    InDesign refuses to register option/alt+space as a keyboard shortcut for Type menu ▸ Insert Whitespace: Nonbreaking space, even though such keyboard shortcut for that character is the default in all macOS Cocoa apps and Microsoft Word.

    It should register it and allow to set it for that.

  18. A keyboard shortcut or an option to make a shortcut for the Auto-fit feature.

    I use auto-fit A LOT and it gets quite time-consuming to always have to click on the tick box EVERY. SINGLE. TIME I want to turn it on or off

  19. How to password protect a Mac OS X application?

    Start by installing the AppLocker app from the App Store on your Mac.

    When you open the app, you’ll find a new icon in the menu bar. You’ll see a popup asking you to set a password. Here, click on the “Setup My Password” button.

    From the Preferences menu, create your password (something that you won’t forget), and if you have a MacBook with Touch ID, you can also check the “Enable Touch ID” option. Now, click “Save Password” and then click on the red Close button in the top-left corner to exit the Preferences pane.

    Go to the menu…

    I am now retired and offer my design services gratis to many charities and organizations.. While you offer discounts on your photography software I do not see any on Indesign.
