  1. Import formatting from PDF comments

    InDesign should apply what ever it recives from the PDF. The formating options for the comments are pretty limited – Bold, Italic, Underline, ...

    If I accept a comment that has italic characters, the formatted text would be [italic].

    If I accept a comment that has bold characters, the formatted text would be [bold].

    If I accept a comment that has bold italic characters, the formatted text would be [bold italic].

    If I am using a font that does not have an Italic weight (Maybe it uses Regualre Italic), the text would just recive the standart missing font warning (The…

    Serait-il possible de rajoute rune fonction "chrono" timer pour chaque projet ?
    Pour comptabiliser le temps actif passé sur chaque fichier. ^_^

  3. Show/hide buttons

    We are working on interactive brochures with indesign but it is really difficult. If you have a page with a high number of buttons it is almost impossible deal with them because the window ("show/hide buttons") to control them is too small, you can't resize it and you can't change the position of the elements inside it...

    Could you please solve this problem?

  4. Increase the number of files available under the "Open recent" menu

    Please increase the current maximum of 30 in Preferences > File Handling > Number of Recent Items to Display. Some of us open dozens of files every day so 60 or 100 would be more convenient.

  6. Break link to imported text or table

    Option to create links when placing text or spredsheet files is great, but usually at the last moment it would be very handy to be able to completely brake link to one or more word etc documents even if they are missing. Best way would be able to sort all by document types on link window, select them and then break links. No embed etc. Just break it comletely.

  7. Incorporate the feature for hyperlinks and buttons to open the clicked url in a new browser window.

    Please can you incorporate the feature for hyperlinks and buttons to have the option to open the clicked url in a new browser window. I feel this is something that would be farely easy for a developer to introduce as a feature, that would greatly benefit alot of Designers that use Adobe InDesign to publish interactive pdfs online.

  8. Chemin bibliothèque locale Indesign

    Hello,
    Would it be possible to have the address locally in the "library" panel, as in the link panel? Indeed, CC libraries are handy, but 1 plugin in particular does not support them (EasyCatalog), and it is not practical to find local libraries when you have several of them.
    Thanks in advance.

  11. File Lock auto-release

    We have multiple editors working remotely, with a policy of locking a file while working on it. But we have a repeated problem of files being left locked at the end of the day, meaning others are unable to work on them. Please add a pop-up on closing a file which asks "do you wish to unlock?".

  12. Ability to track large file sizes cause

    It would be a useful feature to allow users to be able to track down what in their documents is causing their file sizes to be inflated. The feature would be an audit of what is in the document and how it is directly linked to the final file size of the document. This would really help in keeping bloat in the files down to minimum, or choose alternative ways to configure files.

  14. Enlarge the size of the panels; so hard for the eyes with PAO after 40 years (Illustrator and Photoshop have this option in user/interface)

    ADOBE TEAM - SVP aux concepteurs
    Cela fait des années qu'à chaque màj d'inDesign j'attends qu'Adobe permette enfin (comme déjà dans Photoshop, et Illustrator) qu'Indesign autorise dans ses préférences l'AGRANDISSEMENT DES CARACTERES ET/OU DE SES PALETTES!!! Il y a des milliers de graphistes de plus de 40 ans qui se tuent les yeux avec ces palettes miniatures lorsqu'ils deviennent presbytes!!!. Quand on est graphiste, on pleure de mal à la fin de la journée. J'ai tout essayé et moi aussi pas la place de mettre un deuxième écran! j'ai essayé avec iPad Pro et Duet, mais l'affichage le plus bas…

  15. In the PDF comment window, a button to delete all resolved comments

    In the PDF comment window, a button to delete all resolved comments would be useful, keeping comments that have not yet been resolved.

    When it gets too much comment the computer is very slow. And the tool for importing comments is very useful in my case.

    Unfortunately, publishers here in Brazil make many amendments to the diagrammed files.

  16. Home page (InDesign, Photoshop, etc.)

    Please add keyboard ability to CLOSE the big honkin home pages. When I close a document and want to be in my Finder looking for the next thing, I have to mouse up and click on the red CLOSE button at upper left of the home screen to remove it from view. Yes, it's not a huge thing, but a Cmd-W there (the universal CLOSE command on the keyboard) would be much appreciated for workflow.

  17. Eyedropper Tool and locked layers on top, theme tool

    Hey, here is an idea; I have a layer with a photo and i have a layer with text on top. I lock the textlayer and select the eyedropper tool. I click on the photo and the colour is picked. Just like in illustrator...Wishfull thinking?

    Here is another golden idea:
    I have a photo of an interior, mostly brown- somewhat green and overal grey, but there is an amazing pop of yellow because there is one small flower on a painting.
    I select the Colour Theme Tool, I zoom in on the flower, and click on it.
    My brain is…

  20. File handling behaviour

    I would like indesign to First, look in its resident (root) folder for fonts and links, then look in subfolders (ie packed folders "fonts" & "Links") and only then, if it cannot locate them, go looking in the folders defined as "original links folder" or "most recent links folder".
    I would like this to apply to both opening a file and to saving the file and exporting files (pdf etc)
    and if this cannot be a default behavior, then I'l **** it to be an optional behavior.

    Why?
    because when I package a file I want the indesign file to…
