  1. I want to delete/remove/manage Recent files from the Start panel.

    I archive completed projects, but still have to wade through the empty icons in the Recent files list. It would be nice to right-click > Remove the icons. It must be a simple JDI thing! :)

  2. PDF - importing Enhancement in Draging

    Please try to include Import Options dialogue while dragging a PDF file to Document rather than Menu option and Place. Since we using multi-screens and Mac OS, it will be a very useful option.

  7. Add a built in HTML5 Page Curl Effect please

    At the moment Indesign still only offers the SWF option to create a page curl effect and with Flash player soon to be no longer supported, and currently it only works intermittently now, it would be very useful to have a built in html5 version. At the moment the only option is to purchase an expensive plugin from In5 to do something I think Indesign should have?

  8. Control over sorting order of Library assets

    It would be very helpful to have control over arranging the order of assets in InDesign library. It would also be great to create folders within the library to group assets.

  9. Keep an object in place when aligning with another object

    In Illustrator if you have two objects selected, and then alt-click one, the object that was alt-clicked will stay in place when you align them together. Having this feature in InDesign would be helpful

  11. bleed check

    Missing bleed" check? Kind of like missing font or missing link, with the "Go To" function so we can easily find missing bleeds through hefty documents?

  12. Select objects with similar stroke and/or fill color

    Please add feature to select objects with similar stroke and/or fill color.

    This has already been in Illustrator for quite awhile (to my knowledge). This would be good feature to have in InDesign also.

    Thanks!

  14. User Dictionary specifications for some languages

    Unlike English, where the declension of nouns in cases is made using prepositions, there are many languages ​​in which the declension is made according to other rules, for example, by changing part of the word itself.

    For these languages, we add the same word to the dictionary dozens of times, but many words are built and changed according to the same rules. (Russian, Ukrainian, Byelorussian and many Eastern-European languages).

    Here is an example (not complete) for two Ukrainian words ("dissertation" and "compilation").

    ди~~сер~~та~~ція, ком~~пі~~ля~~ція
    ди~~сер~~та~~цію, ком~~пі~~ля~~цію
    ди~~сер~~та~~ції, ком~~пі~~ля~~ції
    ди~~сер~~та~~цією, ком~~пі~~ля~~цією
    ди~~сер~~та~~цій~~ний, ком~~пі~~ля~~цій~~ний
    ди~~сер~~та~~цій~~на, ком~~пі~~ля~~цій~~на
    ди~~сер~~та~~цій~~ні, ком~~пі~~ля~~цій~~ні
    ди~~сер~~та~~цій~~ним, ком~~пі~~ля~~цій~~ним
    ди~~сер~~та~~цій~~ній, ком~~пі~~ля~~цій~~ній …

  15. trial

    I have not been able to productively use the 7 day trial period due to my delayed preparations of the contents of a brochure design.
    I would like to request a brand new 7 days credit to give Indesign a shot to accomplish my task.
    Very truly yours,

  16. Live link Microsoft word documents when placed in InDesign

    When working with lots of teams and writers in our organisation. the constant issue we run into is only a select group of people have InDesign and the experience to operate the files. If there was a way when placing word documents were linked into InDesign, this would allow for a much more fluid workflow when there are a lot of edits.

    I am sure there are many limitations to this, but finding some sort of solution could make a big difference to creating quality documents that will allow non indesign users access. InCopy is not a viable option in…

  17. Bettter error handling. Stop resorting to hard crashes every time indesign encounters a problem.

    Been using InDesign since it began. It completely/suddenly crashes/unexpectedly quits more than ANY program I have ever used. This has been well over a decade on more than a dozen totally different (mac) systems. Some versions have been more stable than others, but the program is consistently crash-happy.

    I honestly don't mind that it has some issues—it does a lot and we ask a lot of it, I get it. But what I mind is how horrible it is at dealing with problems. Does it have to completely CRASH every time it gets confused? It's like it throws its hands…

  18. Disable help and tips windows

    Most of them, as a long-time user of InDesign, Are not useful for me.
    Specially when they come in front of needed buttons and cannot be closed (bug ?).

  19. I enter a date i.e. through date picker, ID handles displayed output

    I am running into the same problem for years: In program brochures spanning a whole year with 200+ events and multiple references throughout the brochure, clients provide wrong information (i. e. wrong day of the week for a specific date or a wrong year).

    How about this: In a text frame or table cell, I could have a date picker or I´d write down every date in the same format, say like this: [DD.MM.YYYY] (since I am in Germany that would be my local format). Through magic/witch craft, InDesign would recognize the variable as a date and handle it according…

  20. Add Button Functionality for the Ability to Toggle Conditional Formating Layers

    It would be amazing to be able to toggle the layers under conditional formatting with Buttons. We have an Instructor Guide and a Participant Guide in the same document and the customer wants everything in the same document. Then the learner or teacher would be able to toggle the text with a button in an interactive PDF.
