  1. Select objects with similar stroke and/or fill color

    Please add feature to select objects with similar stroke and/or fill color.

    This has already been in Illustrator for quite awhile (to my knowledge). This would be good feature to have in InDesign also.

    Thanks!

  2. One-click, easy install for Hunspell dictionaries

    Please, please make the adding of Hunspell language dictionarys easier.

    Have just added a Hunspell language dictionary to InDesign. Wow! What a difficult un-user friendly process. I had to Google to find the baffling instuctions and followed the lengthy guide on InDesignSecrets website.

    It's not just me that finds the whole thing so complicated - the InDesignSecrets instructions end with the following words -
    "I never expected installing Hunspell dictionaries to be such an ordeal. And I can understand if these instructions have scared you off. But if you’ve made it all the way down here, you’re obviously need to…

  4. Create index subentry structures with a drag-and-drop feature in the index window

    It would be very useful if InDesign could convert the mouse pointer into a hand pointer when hovering over the index entries displayed in the index window so that the user can manually grab and move selected index entries under other entries—and thus create faster subentry structures.

  5. Add conditions to Data Merge

    There should be conditions in data merge to include or exclude text based on the data in a record. For example.e consider a set of business cards. Some users might have a Twitter handle or mobile number, some might not. Currently there is no way to omit empty fields and any text that might fo with it, line an "M" and tab to prefix a mobile number and the line break after it. There should be a way to make that text conditional on whether the field is empty or what is in it.

    e.g. IF @mobile<>"",M^t@mobile^p,,)

    If the mobile…

  6. Stop auto pushing clients into Bridge

    Bridge to me feels like a piece of software I don't actually need.

    Would it be possible to either:


    1. Add the ability to block Bridge from auto installing

    2. Add the ability to remove and or change the short cute that initiates Bridge from downloading and opening, as its only one key away from outline text.

    3. Both

  8. Please increase the size of Note anchors.

    Note anchors are not easily seen, even when choosing the "Go to Note Anchor" option in the Notes window. It would be great to have the option to change the size of anchors.

  9. Change message in home screen

    Change from "When in doubt, make a layout." to "When it doubt, lay it out." It flows better.

  10. InDesign CC 2019, eGPU enablement on Mac

    There is no eGPU enablement with Indesign!
    Illustrator will work with eGPU, Photoshop will, but Indesign will nor recognize an eGPU which will slow down every design process.

    Please add instant eGPU support.

    Mac Mini 2018
    Blackmagic eGPU
    OS X 10.14.6

  14. Export to tiff/psd

    One, very obvious feature is missing form indesign: export document to tiff. This feature should allow exporting all pages to separate tiff/psd files, preferably with preserved layers.

  15. InDesign to support Multiple User Editing

    I am not talking about InCopy or any of its features. At the company I work for, we have to create all of our print documents in PowerPoint because our graphic design team collaborates so heavily with the Sales staff. Because of this, we use PowerPoint's live editing feature to collaborate with filling in content, formatting, and designing. It would be significantly easier and better if there was a multi-user function.

  17. Returning to the import options tab

    I would like a quick shortcut to return to the import options tab for an already imported file! This would save me a lot of time!

  18. select similar

    It would be helpful to have a select similar feature for lines and other drawn objects like in illustrator because sometimes I need to change a bunch of things to a different line weight and currently must manually find and change them. I always miss it when I'm working in Indesign instead of Illustrator.

  19. Live link Microsoft word documents when placed in InDesign

    When working with lots of teams and writers in our organisation. the constant issue we run into is only a select group of people have InDesign and the experience to operate the files. If there was a way when placing word documents were linked into InDesign, this would allow for a much more fluid workflow when there are a lot of edits.

    I am sure there are many limitations to this, but finding some sort of solution could make a big difference to creating quality documents that will allow non indesign users access. InCopy is not a viable option in…
