  1. Stop resetting preferences and theme after update

    do NOT mess with the apps preferences and custom setup when updating. Overnight the update from 13.1 to 14.0.2 (Win 10) wreaked havoc with preferences and other customised settings.

    My setup is on a workstation and MUST NOT BE MESSED WITH.

  2. Table of contents update

    how can I insert the same title to my book's table of contents which I did on two different pages? (table of content is divided into two text frames) Is it possible to do it automatically? I think it's not possible so I propose to add this option to new version of InDesign. It would be great!

  3. Add auto login feature

    Please add auto login feature for Indesign so I wouldn't have to type my password in front of the customer or have the browser with my exposed gmail logged in. It's better in v13.

  5. Illustrator's color blindness proof setups available also in InDesign

    t would be a big help for those of us who have to create accessible documents to have Illustrator's color blindness proof setups available also in InDesign.

    Pushing a PDF to Illustrator to check this is an awkward workaround.

  7. idml icons

    In InDesign CC 2019, its hard to see the difference between the icons of INDD and a IDML files. I propose to Adobe to keep the INDD icon unchanged and to make IDML icone with a purple coulour but not so saturated that on INDD icons. Maybe it should be almost grey.
    Thank you for reading

  8. let users change app language dynamically, without re-installing the app.

    Users can't but reinstall apps in order to change language(e.g. Korean -> English).
    I want it to be more simple.
    Mandatory reinstallation just for changing language is overkill.

  9. bleed check

    Missing bleed" check? Kind of like missing font or missing link, with the "Go To" function so we can easily find missing bleeds through hefty documents?

  10. Import PDF comments via INDB File

    It looks like Import PDF comments only works for individual document files. We use compiled book files for our authors at AuthorSupport.com. Will this be a feature that eventual can be imported via the book panel and applied to the compiled documents?

  11. Cross Reference feature - Relink selection to a different Indesign document

    I need assistance to add a feature to the cross references panel. Right now you cannot batch relink cross references to a different indesign document. I need a feature added to this such as relink selected, locate different document, select and relink. Right now the only way to do this is to individually relink each cross-reference. For example if I have a book file and the glossary with 250 entries in it and I change some of the content from one document to another and move the text anchors with it, I have to individually relink each cross reference. Could…

  12. I want to delete/remove/manage Recent files from the Start panel.

    I archive completed projects, but still have to wade through the empty icons in the Recent files list. It would be nice to right-click > Remove the icons. It must be a simple JDI thing! :)

  13. Add "dfont" font check to Preflight profile

    Hi,

    Please consider adding a "dfont" (OS X system font) font check to the preflight panel. These fonts will not work on Windows machines.

  15. Trackpad gestures for windows 10 laptops

  16. Tags - Improve UX and UI for using Standard PDF Tags

    Make the Standard PDF Tags available for quick, one-click import into the InDesign Tags Panel from the Tag Panel Menu. The UX/UI could be similar to importing common color libraries (e.g., Pantone Coated) into Illustrator Color Panel.

    By "Standard PDF Tags" I mean https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/editing-document-structure-content-tags.html#standard_pdf_tags

    Basically any UI that is quicker than manually adding all the Standard PDF Tags, exporting to XML, and then in the future having to remember where they are saved and importing. Also helpful when user frequently changes computers, temporarily doesn't have access to a shared network drive, etc.

    ## Bonus Points
    - Color Grouping: Preset the…

  17. Speed up for Windows 10

    InDesign is very slow to start on a new Windows 10 machine with 16GB RAM and a 1TB hard drive. It takes over 2 minutes from the time I click the icon until it's usable.

  18. Add a built in HTML5 Page Curl Effect please

    At the moment Indesign still only offers the SWF option to create a page curl effect and with Flash player soon to be no longer supported, and currently it only works intermittently now, it would be very useful to have a built in html5 version. At the moment the only option is to purchase an expensive plugin from In5 to do something I think Indesign should have?

  19. Control over sorting order of Library assets

    It would be very helpful to have control over arranging the order of assets in InDesign library. It would also be great to create folders within the library to group assets.
