  1. Option to color tag indesign documents

    I would love to have an option of colour tagging InDesign documents on the Home screen, making it easier to find and discern similar looking front pages or document names. This is helpful when managing various manuals.
    Even more so when is is supported by a filter (like Acrobat comments).

  2. Indesign Thumbnails for explorer WIN10

    Where is this feature? Why isn´t Adobe delivering this simple feature as other software? This would be a great feature for user expierience and I guess, it would be that hard to fix.

    When I ask Adobe for this feature, they recommend me to use a third party app - I don´t want a third party app, I expect this from Adobe for a software that I am paying a lot of money!

    So, please - anybody who is in charge, talk about this feature at your next meeting.

    Dirk

  4. Confusing wording of options in layers palett

    There are two Options in the submenu of the layers palett, that make no sense. It might be a translation-issue with the german version. When the options are "on" they are actually "off". That's confusing...

  6. I would like to be able to download/print a list of all linked files with their full pathways.

    I would like to be able to download/print a list of all linked files with their full pathways. Currently if you highlight all the files on the links panel, then right click, then choose Copy Info, you get a complete list of files, but not the full path.

    Having the full path will help me identify when and how the image was created, what category the image falls into, and where the original artwork is located in the warehouse.

  8. Please add free templates that come with a paid subscription to InDesign and Illustrator.

    It's ridiculous that I am paying for InDesign and Illustrator, and I don't have access to adobe stock. I need some templates and I shouldn't have to pay additionally for templates for InDesign and Illustrator.

  11. Caption Setup Metadata Dimensions in Inches OR ImageCatalog.jsx Script Labels in inches

    Hello,

    I would like to be able to add dimensions in inches in Caption Setup.

    This is useful for creating a reference contact sheet for printing graphics of many different sizes

    Alternatively, could ImageCatalog.jsx Script be edited to include a dimensions label in inches?

    Thanks

  12. Color overlay FX

    Right now Indesign has almost every effect as Photoshop, except Color Overlay.

    Please add the Color Overlay effect to Indesign.

    Aside from the obvious benefits, this feature would make changing the color of bitmap fonts so much easier than having to recolor them in photoshop, and import them as images into indesign.

  14. Select All Across Pages

    PLEASE create an option to select all objects or text over the entire document instead of just the page/spread you're on. Making a universal change to the document, such as outlining the type is such a pain having to manually change from page to page. I've seen MULTIPLE threads online for the past 8 years of people requesting this, and it hasn't been resolved.

  15. Apply Master Pages Across Multiple Documents in a Book File.

    I use Book Files quite often in my job to create catalogs. These catalogs have multiple sections. It would be nice to be able to set up master pages one time that could be shared for all the documents that make up that book. Kind of like applying the same exact character or paragraph styles across multiple docs.

  16. Indesign feature

    Please add in "outline stroke" (which is an illustrator function) to indesign. We need this for when a printer requests that all strokes are outlined.

  17. Could you please add support for 3dconnexion space mouse?

    Could you please add support for 3dconnexion space mouse? It would be great to use their mouse for paning, zooming and scrolling.
    I've contacted the people behind 3dconnexion and they told me that support for an application (Indesign) is determined by the application developer rather than by 3dconnexion. They have an SDK which you could use to integrate support for the space mouse in Indesign.
    Thank you if you would consider this.

    Kind Regards,
    Marti van der Zanden
