  2. PDF comments - Option to remove all resolved comments at once

    Option to remove all resolved comments at once. An option to remove all resolved comments in the comment window would be very interesting, because indesign has a performance issue with too much comment.

  3. Worksharing across multiple users

    Being able to have multiple people working in the same file at once similar to how Autodesk Revit is formatted - there is one "central" file and each user has a "local" file that they work on and every time they save it saves back to the "central" as one master file. There is also a safe guard against two people doing the same work where if two users were on the same page, the second person to try an edit the same object would see an error message telling them that someone else owns that item and in order…

  4. Just like........actually do *something* to improve InDesign??

    Many popular, highly voted Indesign feature requests—even some that you've responded to—have just been sitting here languishing for yearS...literally yearS. Would it be possible to do something? Like... just do something to improve the development of the program we all rely on for our careers? Thanks<3

  5. Reveal in Bridge should Select File in Bridge

    In macOS, Reveal in Finder not only reveals the file, but selects it in the Finder.

    Reveal in Bridge should work the same way, to make it easier to immediately manipulate the file (such as updating metadata).

  6. Uses of Quickbooks auto data recovery

    Auto Data Recovery facilitates data recovery in two ways:

    Use your current Transaction Log file and a duplicate of your Company file to recover lost transactions.
    All transactions should be rebuilt using a copy of both your transaction and business files, with the exception of the recent few hours.

  8. Allow option/alt+space keyboard shortcut for nonbreaking space

    InDesign refuses to register option/alt+space as a keyboard shortcut for Type menu ▸ Insert Whitespace: Nonbreaking space, even though such keyboard shortcut for that character is the default in all macOS Cocoa apps and Microsoft Word.

    It should register it and allow to set it for that.

  9. A keyboard shortcut or an option to make a shortcut for the Auto-fit feature.

    I use auto-fit A LOT and it gets quite time-consuming to always have to click on the tick box EVERY. SINGLE. TIME I want to turn it on or off

  10. How to password protect a Mac OS X application?

    Start by installing the AppLocker app from the App Store on your Mac.

    When you open the app, you’ll find a new icon in the menu bar. You’ll see a popup asking you to set a password. Here, click on the “Setup My Password” button.

    From the Preferences menu, create your password (something that you won’t forget), and if you have a MacBook with Touch ID, you can also check the “Enable Touch ID” option. Now, click “Save Password” and then click on the red Close button in the top-left corner to exit the Preferences pane.

    Go to the menu…

  12. How do I get Adobe Flash on a Mac?

    How to install Flash Player on your Mac

    Here’s how to install Flash Player on your Mac:

    1. Click the Missing Plug-In button.
    2. Click on Download Flash.
    3. This will take you to https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ which is a legitimate site – if you ever get taken to a site that is clearly not Adobe be very cautious, it is likely you are being taken to a malicious site.

  15. Open location from 'Recent files' in explorer or bridge

    I normally save my exports to somewhere very close to the INDD file. Would love to be able to open a bridge or explorer window to the location of the files listed in 'Recent files' (the home screen when nothing is open).

  16. Make it faster!

    I have 16GB of memory on my graphics card and 128 in my computer, but Indesign only utilises 2GB & 16GB respectively.

    I regularly create multi-page documents that need complex vectors, style sheets, table of contents, etc which I cannot create in Illustrator and would slow me down even more if I had to.

    I'm also using a 10-core 3.6Ghz i9 processor. I don't know how many cores InDesign uses, but I would like to know if it utilises all of my processor cores. If it doesn't, can you make it do so please.

  17. Does Boot Camp Work on the M1 Macs?

    Sadly, the short answer is no. It’s probably not what fans of the M1 chip want to hear but because Apple switched away from the Intel models to Apple silicon and decided to kill the Boot Camp assistant, the old way of running Windows on Macs is not possible.

    There is a bit of method to perceived madness here. To take on Intel and create their own chip, Apple decided to go with the ARM chip instead of the Intel-created x86 architecture. It has been a while since Apple introduced ARM chips to power their phone and tablet range so…

  20. Indesign Lite, but different to the already suggested

    Indesign comes with a lot of features you never use. Features like the absolutely annoying and nasty Creative Cloud and its client, the even nastier CCX, the constant updates which lose compatibility between almost every next version and the previous one, the CC library which doesn't work at all (it should host any kind of object, but it doesn't), InCopy. Remove all that and let us just use what we need.
