  3. Tools handling

    Instead of corner nodes which are used to resize the box, provide the easy option to user where ever they want hold the box edges to resize, it could be better to work with ID..

  4. Add feature to Buttons and Forms

    In the Text Field, if there could be an option for auto scalable type, which would automatically scale while writing in a interactive PDF. This would allow the writer to write without exceeding the set text field, which could later be printed instead of hidden when printed, when the scrollable option is selected. The current options are set, scrollable or set font size. It would create a more dynamic set text field.
    Also a prompt description in the text field which disappears when writing.

  6. Same shortcuts for all Adobe products (the most important one)

    A lot of shortcuts are totally different for each programm of adobe. This is confusing. I think the most important shortcuts should be always the same for each adobe programm

  7. Support for Microsoft SCUP

    We have invested very large in SCCM infrastructure to support Global distribution of client applications. To speed up distribution of Adobe product versions we have analyzed Adobe Update Server solution.
    Based on our global environment that would require an enormous investment create a Adobe Update Server at every site location.

    We would like Adobe to add support for Microsoft SCUM, that would speed up product distribution without very large investment.

  9. Smart button interfacing

    I had an idea which could be applied to all of the applications. Essentially the idea is for a 'smart' button.
    Often when I'm diving in and out of the interface I miss clicking on a button, sometimes repeatedly. What if the button had a 'snap to' effect, this could be set with a variable through preferences. It could be set to 1 pixel or 100.
    This could be toggled on and off utilising a short cut. So you could activate it for different methodologies. It could also be disabled completely.

    It would allow for faster and smoother interfacing. However…

  10. Option: make subsection headers not persist beyond their ends.

    For text variables for running headers/footers, the default behavior is as described in the help: "If there is no occurrence of the style on the page, the previous occurrence of the applied style is used." Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but if you are using headers or footers for both sections and subsections, and some sections have subsections and some don't, then you get a header with the name of a subsection many pages back, even though it's not on the page. Having an option to turn off this persistence would make this feature work…

  11. Bug: XML w/Images Export (filename)

    Just discovered during XML w/images export that ID is converting images w/spaces in filenames to underscores (causing mismatches, XML itself is correct) — is this a bug? Using ID 13.0.1

    Btw - I know this is a feature request post, but I can't find an easy way to submit bugs!

  13. Find/Change tags

    This is important in order to save time and avoid using third-party code editors, especially when edits have been made in InDesign such as anchored images being placed only on some listed items, that won't render in them.

  14. Could copy operations in InDesign use APFS Cloning to save space?

    Whenever there's an option that copies files in InDesign, would it be possible to it to use the APFS method for copying where the files are cloned? Like when using "Copy Link(s) To..." or possibly when packaging documents as well. This would help with hard drive space and clutter when working with files on an APFS formatted hard drive.

  16. Incompatibility with Mac OS High Sierra

    I just updated my Mac OS to Sierra 10.13.2. I can no longer use my pre-2017 InDesign. The program opens but none of the console works and it gets 'stuck' so that I cannot even ask the program to close once opened. Is there a fix? Thanks.

  17. Make tutorials easier for newbies to understand

    Include pictures of where these tools or paths are located. Maybe a convertable word search that offers suggestions of the proper terminology to give the user more ideas on how to search for what s/he is looking for. Insert non-tech terms/definitions using common words and not only geek-speak.

  18. Change billing from month to month to one time purchase, buy updates.

    I was able to purchase the whole suite in 2004. Now I only need InDesign, and your monthly popup is a pain. Just let me buy the program and sell me updates as they come out. Your popup is inaccurate, claiming I have not purchased the program and would I like to continue with a trial version. I don't want to be bugged by this every month. Just sell me the program.

  19. Add area property to Indesign DOM

    Please add readonly area property to all shapes (Rectangle, polygon, ...) which contains the total surface coverage. This property should be accessible using scripting... This is already present in Illustrator ...

  20. Tool to check for if Adobe Creative Cloud Network Endpoints are being blocked by firewall

    For those of us deployed in large organisations with indifferent IT departments.
    It would be useful in Adobe provided a tool to check which of the (100+?) required Adobe Creative Cloud Network Endpoints were blocked by our firewall.
    It is not always clear which endpoint is being blocked.
    If Adobe provided a Creative Cloud App or web tool that checked your network and then provided a nice report we could present to the stubborn IT bods (who insist they have whitelisted all 100+ adobe links)

    (let not get started on why there have to be so many! Or why therer…
