  1. Incorporate the feature for hyperlinks and buttons to open the clicked url in a new browser window.

    Please can you incorporate the feature for hyperlinks and buttons to have the option to open the clicked url in a new browser window. I feel this is something that would be farely easy for a developer to introduce as a feature, that would greatly benefit alot of Designers that use Adobe InDesign to publish interactive pdfs online.

  3. History panel a la Photoshop

    Photoshop has a history panel, extremely useful when undoing edits, or simply reviewing them, etc. This would be awesome in InDesign, and all other Adobe programs too.

  4. Embed file option while placing the image in the page

    Many-a-times after placing a Image, we need to Embed that as we don't want that to stay connected to the source.
    That's why what we want is that before placing a Image, there should be a Link/Embed Option as there is in Illustrator so that I do not have to manually go to Links Panel and Embed it from there for every single Image. It will faster the work process

  5. Ability to track large file sizes cause

    It would be a useful feature to allow users to be able to track down what in their documents is causing their file sizes to be inflated. The feature would be an audit of what is in the document and how it is directly linked to the final file size of the document. This would really help in keeping bloat in the files down to minimum, or choose alternative ways to configure files.

  6. Can we get text to go along with the video tutorials?

    Videos can be useful, but we can read text MUCH faster than listening to a video. And we can easily refer to text where we can't in a video.

    Please just supply the same learning in text form as well.

  7. Caption setting: Why paragraph style, not object style?

    Caption setting: Why paragraph style, not object style?

    Its "displacement" is not very easy to use, I generally still need object style to control the caption.

    If you can use object styles directly, it's easy? Because object styles can call paragraph styles, there are more settings.

    I hope Adobe will pay attention to this problem.

  8. The indesign "edit original" menu should go to the worksheet of the illustrator.

    When displaying the multi-page illustrator document with the indesign "edit original" menu, a random page is opened. The workspace of the "edit original" menu in the illustrator must be centered on the screen.

  12. Target cell styles in find/change

    Working with long tables would be easier if find/change could be limited by cell style.

    It would be even better if this find/change could include inserting text when there is nothing present in the cell.

  14. Eyedropper Tool and locked layers on top, theme tool

    Hey, here is an idea; I have a layer with a photo and i have a layer with text on top. I lock the textlayer and select the eyedropper tool. I click on the photo and the colour is picked. Just like in illustrator...Wishfull thinking?

    Here is another golden idea:
    I have a photo of an interior, mostly brown- somewhat green and overal grey, but there is an amazing pop of yellow because there is one small flower on a painting.
    I select the Colour Theme Tool, I zoom in on the flower, and click on it.
    My brain is…

  15. Add scrubby zoom (to all device interfaces including windows not just Mac)

    Please, please add this feature since it's very tiring to use weird zooming options every time I'm not using photoshop or illustrator. Marquee zoom is functional but it's irritating and time-consuming.

  16. Add full text markup options to document review (online version)

    When sending a document for review through CC online, my reviewers have very limited edit/markup options (add comment, draw, add pin). Can you add all the text markup options available in the "Comment" tool of the desktop version of Acrobat Pro? For example, insert text, add note to replace text, strikethrough, callout boxes, etc. This is valuable to me because it is much easier to read/understand the edits if they're clear text edits, not just comments in a box. Thank you!

  17. Live Preflight reporting a false error with OpenType Type 1 fonts

    InDesign's Live Preflight will wrongly flag an OpenType Type 1 (PostScript flavored) font as invalid when the font appears in a linked graphic.

    To recreate:
    1. Create an InDesign Preflight Profile
    2. Set it to flag Type 1 fonts as Font Type Not allowed.
    3. Create a new InDesign document.
    4. Add text using an OpenType Type 1 font.
    5. Turn on the preflight.
    The preflight will not signal an error. This is expected and correct.
    6. Now export a PDF of the document created.
    7. Create a new InDesign document.
    8. Place the PDF as a linked graphic into…

  18. Show traditional version names in CC Desktop

    In the CC Desktop app, when you are looking at Apps and seeing version numbers, it's confusing to users when you see InDesign v16, which is CC2021, or v15, which is 2020. If the labeling could be InDesign 2021 v16.0, it would be less confusing to users. We have a huge number of users in our company and when we make the switch to each new version as a group, people look at v15 and don't know what that means. For InDesign, in particular, we tend to lag a while while our plugins are updated for the newer versions. So…

  19. timer ?

    Serait-il possible de rajoute rune fonction "chrono" timer pour chaque projet ?
    Pour comptabiliser le temps actif passé sur chaque fichier. ^_^
    Ce serait fantastique et aiderait sans doute des tas d'utilisateurs !!

  20. Increase the number of files available under the "Open recent" menu

    Please increase the current maximum of 30 in Preferences > File Handling > Number of Recent Items to Display. Some of us open dozens of files every day so 60 or 100 would be more convenient.
