  1. Trackpad gestures for windows 10 laptops

    I really want pinch to zoom on my touchpad. Coming from macbook to windows I find it ridiculous that it isn't a thing already.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Place a video from a URL with https

    The window for "Place a video from a URL" will not accept a safe HTTPS link (only http). Thus when I publish it, the browser throws a warning asking if I trust the content. Extremely silly bug in this age of security issues.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Omit text boxes [None] check box in Preflight > Bleed/Trim Hazzard Warning

    Text boxes with [None] background like footers and page numbers are always showing up in the warning list. This would save a bunch of time checking each one or disregarding and having an error on press.

  13. Want to check if Adobe has been 'hacked' because I've received an unusual email supposedly from an Adobe ID Product Manager

    After sitting in the phone cue for an hour because there are no appropriate option choices for 'contact Adobe about suspicious emails asking for detailed questions about my account'. I thought I'd post it here because the email claims to have links to the InDesign team. Email content raises a number of security flags which require IT in my company to check it out and as I am IT, I tried - but if you can't get through to anyone at Adobe and there's nowhere to deal with security issues in the 'contact' section of Adobe, then guess I will…

  14. Rename Hyperlink

    Add the 'rename hyperlink' option to the 'edit hyperlink' window. I find it essential to identify hyperlinks by their names. But I often edit them. After I edit a link, and I want to rename it to better identify it, I have to open a new window just to rename it. This is quite inefficient.

  15. Bigger Icons

    I really wish that this software was more user-friendly. The icons should be bigger and clearly labeled. Like the buttons at the self-checkout at the grocery store.

  17. Find/change table stroke

    When using Find/Change and selecting the tab to search for object attributes it's possible to search for a specific stroke width, color etc. But it does not look for that in tables. So if you don't use table or cell formating you have to select and find those attributes by hand. Couldn't there be a tab for searching attributes in tables as well?

  18. 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! :)

  19. 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.
