With LayoutWindow.bounds I can get and set the bounds of the window, but I want to get and set the bounds of the view port, ie. what the user sees inside the window. If view port bounds is too difficult, then just a centerOfView coordinate would be fine—combined with the already-available zoom value, that would achieve most things I'd need.
For what it's worth, it is possible to do what I want in Illustrator.6 votes
It would be interesting to make it possibile to calculate some values inserted into a table, like Excel does.
We can't create calculate fields in existing tables with data inserted into.
This would be very useful when we have some price list in a cloumn, the user puts a quantyty order in a row and then to have the final price (multiplication) in another row.6 votes
Could you please consider adding all find/change functions to the Page class ?
.findText / .findGrep / .findObject / .changeText / .changeGrep / etc6 votes
It’ll be great, if e.g. I could hook into the mouse right click context menu of the paragraph styles panel, grab, which paragraph style was selected by the user, and perform some scripting tasks on this user selected paragraph style.
Or the user can select pages in the pages panel, perform the script (or right click to run the script from the context menu), which processes it’s scripting actions on the selected pages.
I think, there would be thousands of more clever use cases for such functionality. Allowing such actions will extend the power of scripting tremendously.

Please develop Swapping Images Command in Indesign so very easy to swap pictures each other in the document for everywhere means in table or frame.
Even Big to Small or small to big jus select to frame or table and press the command or shortcuts key of swapping images and It's very useful.5 votes
It would be handy to have a shortcutKey property in ParagrapStyle and CharacterStyle objects. I know these properties can be manipulated via idml's Styles file, but it is arduous.5 votes
Could and or does InDesign have an Imposition feature for printing multiple pages on one sheet of A4 / A3 paper?4 votes
After update to MacOs Catalina the command to "Edit Script" from the flyout menu does nothing when in an Indesign version prior to CC 2020. This is because ExtendScript Toolkit no longer runs as it is a 32 bit application.
In Indesign 2020 the command opens Visual Studio Code.
However, I prefer using another application for editing scripts.
So my feature request is simply:
We need options to select which application Indesign opens for editing scripts.
Or at least rely on the system’s default application for the…4 votes
I need to be able to set up a document with graphic frames, then import a multipage PDF using a script which places each page into each frame. When the script encounters a page not containing a frame, it will miss it out and place into the next available frame.4 votes
It would be nice to be able to read the amount of H&J violation on a given line through the InDesign script.

Be able to rename already placed images in InDesign as a bulk, something similar to Adobe Bridge Batch Rename, the issue with Bridge will be I will have to place each image at a time in InDesign if I used Bridge to rename my images.3 votes
Often users need to run a series of search and replaces on a document. Why not create an S&R that runs a series of S&Rs in a user-defined order. It'd be great for cleaning up text. Also, allow users to decide if each S&R is run as "replace all" or with the user deciding each replace.
In addition, allow S&Rs to be run automatically when text documents (typically from Word) are placed. Choosing that would be one option in the Place window.3 votes
Script to help extract Black and white masks from color separation to photoshop smart objects for 3d
