  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…

  3. Option to search child folders when using Relink to Folder

    Have a checkbox that tells indesign to also search child folders when using the "Relink to Folder" feature. To keep it from searching too far, you could also include a box to specify how many "layers" down to check.

  5. Implement new good functions from photoshop also in InDesign

    It looks like the teams of Photoshop, Indesign an Illustrator are not talking together. New nice functions from photoshop like - closing tabs more easely or gradients that are added to photoshop are not available for InDesign.

    Also shortcuts are different and even the Logo of Photoshop is rounded and the one for Illustrator still cornered. That is only the tip of the iceberg. Also i like to have all programms work together in a easier way for the future

  6. Improve 'Hide New Layers When Updating or Relinking' tick-box

    Hide New Layers When Updating or Relinking (unticked) can be very annoying when I actually need the new layers to be shown when updating and relinking, but InDesign warns with a Confirmation Dialog box everytime for every page that is being relinked - it is so annoying, please can you change this tick-box in Preferences to Ask/Never/Always or something like that please, and have this option in the Dialog box so that the relinking and updating process is smoother/quicker/quieter.

    Thank you :)

  7. Lock file on same network instead of conflict

    I don't understand why CC can't detect that a file is open by another user on the same network, rather than allowing two users to open the file which creates a conflict.

    A simple notice "the file is open by another user on your network" would be a great addition to our workflow because it would save time not having to go back through a conflicted file and consolidating changes made by both files.

  8. 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

  9. Search like in Microsoft Word

    Microsoft Word's current search feature is much more powerful than InDesign's. You just type in a word and it searches for it. You don't have to pick forwards or backwards, you can see the matches in the search pane in context… lots of other ways it's better than InDesign's search. Not sure how much of that is covered by patents, but the more you can emulate MS Word's search ease of use, the better.

  10. Save As location

    Right now the Save As location seems to be the PREVIOUS folder location where I saved a file.
    However, in other programs like Photoshop, the default location goes to the same folder as opened file.
    Consulted help center and got no solution other than rerouting every time I save as a file. PLEASE also make the default Save As location in InDesign to the same location as opened file!! I'm working on like 3 or more projects at the same time and have to reroute the save location all the time! In fact I accidentally overwrote an important working file…

  12. Indesign Lite

    Comment - Adobe should come out with InDesign Lite - sell it like Photoshop Elements - NOT A SUBSCRIPTION. I don't need or want all the bells and whistles of Indesign - give me Lite! Becoming an issue because of the new Mac update to Catalina won't support earlier Indesign. Moving to open source alternatives.

  13. Preferences | Spelling... Add Find Option to Ignore Check Spelling on Master Pages and Pasteboard

    Please add an option under Preferences | Spelling... Add Find Option to Ignore Check Spelling on Master Pages and Pasteboard.

    This should be a Preferences feature under Spelling that can be turned on and off. I see that other people have asked for a similar feature so it's definitely a popular ask.

    I'm a design professional and I create and use templates for a large corporation's various product marketing teams. Even with the best editors typos will slip through so it would be nice to be able to run a quick spell check on a document. Unfortunately, a quick spell…

  14. Incorporate iCloud Filemanagement

    As my MacBooks SSD isn't too big I've enabled iCloud's storage feature. InDesign doesn't really like when macOS suddenly decides to delete the local copy of files I've embedded into my document and it's a hassle to deal with because there is no way to redownload all the files I need within InDesign. It would be super useful to see a better description of what happened with an embedded file and have to opportunity to download it without having to jump into Finder.

    I've read that Apple made it possible to delete a local copy of a file in macOS…

  15. Keep non printing elements visible on screen

    A lot of documents I create, are for both printing and onscreen publishing (.pdf). In the .pdf's, I like to add a divider to spreads, to make clear that two pages are show. When setting the 'Non Printing' Attribute for this divider, it dissappears on screen. Maybe ther should be an 'Invisible' check box for that, and a 'Non Printing' option for objects that are visible, but do not print.

  17. 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.

  18. Default cross-reference parameters

    I would like to able to globally set my parameters for cross references and have these default parameters be retained for all documents that I open/ create. For example, ALWAYS open as Paragraph Numbers, ALWAYS open as Visible Rectangle, etc., etc., for all available parameters... and not revert to InDesign's defaults.

  19. Simple Answers to Simple Questions

    Ya'll Know that 1 Month Ago I Asked If Adobe CC 2018 or 2019 would work with MACOS CATALINA Despite the 32 Bit Sub Apps like "Application Manager," "AAMLauncherUtil" "AAM Registration Notifier" and others. All I got was a bunch of BS from everyone including Beta Testers who could have at Least TRIED to Find out. WELL NEVER MIND You F***s. IT ALL WORKS BEAUTIFULLY WITH CATALINA OFFICIAL RELEASE TODAY. TRIED AND TESTED THEM ALL. EVEN Premiere Pro & After Effects 2018, Indesign 2019, PShop, Illustrator and others. That's All I was asking and couldn't get ONE GODDAM Answer! Thank…
