  1. 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.

  6. idml icons

    In InDesign CC 2019, its hard to see the difference between the icons of INDD and a IDML files. I propose to Adobe to keep the INDD icon unchanged and to make IDML icone with a purple coulour but not so saturated that on INDD icons. Maybe it should be almost grey.
    Thank you for reading

  7. the ability to export responsive web graphics

    the ability to export marketing web graphics for all the different aspect ratios... ppt cover slides, twitter, facebook, linkedin, instagram, email headers... etc...

    for example in illustrator I can do 3x, 2x, png and name art boards to the file extension.

    indesign maybe the better place for this the illustrator because I can manage the content with variables, paragraph styles, and master pages

  8. scroll through PDF pages while ALREADY placing with cursor directly in document

    i'd love to have a feature where i can scroll through the pages of a multi-page PDF document AFTER i i've been in the import options and when i'm already placing stuff directly in the document with the placement cursor.

    for expample using the arrows keys (similar to creating a grid when placing multiple images) to scroll to page 5 when the next page would actually be page 2. in addition to the little preview image next to the cursor this might speed up things a lot in some cases.

    enlighten me if this is already possible. all i found…

  9. Optimise for web function

    Optimise for web function when export jpegs out of Indesign

    I find it a lot faster to layout and crop images to various sizes for websites when using Indesign instead of Photoshop.

    Could you please add this feature – the file size out of Indesign is too large.

    Thank you

  10. Add "dfont" font check to Preflight profile

    Hi,

    Please consider adding a "dfont" (OS X system font) font check to the preflight panel. These fonts will not work on Windows machines.

    Thanks

  11. QR-Code - Overprint Attribute for Black not available

    QR-Code - make overprint attribute for Black available
    At this time it is unfortunately not possible to set the attribute for overprint for a black QR code. As today QR codes are well readable on bright colors or images it definitely would be advantageous if this option would be given to avoid register problems in printing.

  13. 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. Tags - Improve UX and UI for using Standard PDF Tags

    Make the Standard PDF Tags available for quick, one-click import into the InDesign Tags Panel from the Tag Panel Menu. The UX/UI could be similar to importing common color libraries (e.g., Pantone Coated) into Illustrator Color Panel.

    By "Standard PDF Tags" I mean https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/editing-document-structure-content-tags.html#standardpdftags

    Basically any UI that is quicker than manually adding all the Standard PDF Tags, exporting to XML, and then in the future having to remember where they are saved and importing. Also helpful when user frequently changes computers, temporarily doesn't have access to a shared network drive, etc.

    Bonus Points

  15. Export to tiff/psd

    One, very obvious feature is missing form indesign: export document to tiff. This feature should allow exporting all pages to separate tiff/psd files, preferably with preserved layers.

  16. Add auto login feature

    Please add auto login feature for Indesign so I wouldn't have to type my password in front of the customer or have the browser with my exposed gmail logged in. It's better in v13.

  17. Find and Replace by pagenumber/sequence

    I'd like to see a Find and Replace by pagenumber/sequence, so you can choose on which pages you can find/replace. Just like exporting pages to pdf.

  18. Fitting Content - Define Zoom Percentage

    Add a feature to let me define the Zoom percentage instead of just the standard selections. Example, an 8.5x11 from a manual has margins. If the manual needs to be printed smaller, having to place every page into a defined size requires touching every page instead of just enlarge/reduce to a specific size.

  19. Stop resetting preferences and theme after update

    do NOT mess with the apps preferences and custom setup when updating. Overnight the update from 13.1 to 14.0.2 (Win 10) wreaked havoc with preferences and other customised settings.

    My setup is on a workstation and MUST NOT BE MESSED WITH.

  20. command "delete hidden layers"

    a function/command "delete hidden layers" (all hidden layers with one click/command) should be timesaving …!

    Like in Photoshop CC "Ausgeblendete Ebenen löschen".

    Thank You.
