  1. Stop hiding the known issues, and release notes for each release

    Where's the link that leads to the latest releases known issues list? It's hard enough to find the release notes for the newest version release.

    It should be a simple link right under the is this compatible with your computer info in The creative cloud desktop app.

    I need the list of known issues with the latest release to determine whether or not I'm going to upgrade to it or wait until a critical issue is resolved. Sometimes an issue will not be in the feature I use so I will update other times it is something that will majorly…

  3. Software language should be independent of the system.

    Software language should be independent of the system. Should be abble to change language system in the software preferences and not change the system language. When you have to work with a different language for some web applications, you don’t want to change all the system. Quark does it. You go in the preferences and change language on the sport and Et voilà! it’s done.
    I speak french but my systems are always in english as it more practical for the shortcuts and other stuff. I am starting to work with an application that work only with InDesign 2018 French…

  4. How about not changing shortcuts

    Stop messing with our workflow and productivity
    Bloody frustrating when you change standard keyboard shortcuts like spacebar = hand grab and spacebar command= zoom just to name a few.

  6. Please add an interactive box for images + option to set font color for interactive text boxes

    I recently started to make interactive PDF forms in InDesign (which is a great tool!), but I was surprised to find out that:


    1. you cannot add an interactive box for images

    2. you cannot set color to the assigned font in interactive text boxes...

    Seems like some basic functions like this are still missing in InDesign, so it would be greatly appreciated if you could add it to your to-do list.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

  7. I would like to see a slimmed down version of InDesign much like the photoshop

    I would like a slimmed down version of InDesign. I have used the product from pagemaker thru freehand and InDesign CC. But I have a need only once a month. I have had to deal with people using MS publisher and that is the only other layout version by a major Software supplier and it is less than a satisfactory product. I am a computer consultant and seasoned product marketing manager and the need seems to be there. I would be glad to test such a product as I have had many years doing alpha/beta software. Please consider this request…

  10. Auto anchor table cells in forms to export correctly to tag trees in PDF

    Clients frequently want accessible forms made in table format. Please set the cell fields (graphic cells) to auto-anchor and correctly export to the tag tree in PDFs. Currently, the exports do not work well with assistive devices and require much remediation--sometimes more time to remediate than actually designing the file correctly. Note that all USA Federal Government publications, forms, etc., MUST meet Federal law regarding accessibility. Remediation in exported PDFs needs to be minimal. Thank you.

  13. Show picture as it is being resized

    In CS5 we could drag the corner of a picture and the picture would change as you pulled down. The new version only changes the frame and you can't see what the picture is doing. We print over 1,000 pictures in our weekly publication and this takes a HUGE amount of extra time to get the picture to the size we need it in the frame.

  14. The little arrows up/down to change values have increments too large

    Those little arrows used to change increments are a blessing, but many times the increments are just too big so they are useless because I have to input my numbers anyway. There should be a preference to change the increment value assigned to those fields (like 0.1 point or 0.1 mm) like there is one for the leading (see pictures)

  16. Long, NOT complicated, password requirements

    Can you please stop asking me to write password with ridiculously complicate rules to try and make them more secure?! What's more is you force people to use something they have never used before as a password every time it gets re-set. What you have to remember is that REAL PEOPLE with REAL WORKING BRAINS need to be able to actually REMEMBER their password. Rather than spending 10-15 minutes every time they need to login to an application/ server re-setting their password because they can't remember it, how about you just make them use a long, random collection of words,…

  19. Better functionality when placing Excel 2020 textcells referring to another cell

    Depending on InDesign and Excel version the results differ when placing Excel text cells referring to another cell. I have a big financial report with lots of text references, it would be great if this worked with latest versions of InDesign and Excel.
