  2. Is there any option to view the HTML tags as rich text on Indesign Pallet?

    We have a plugin & that will shows the notification from another website in Indesign pallet. But when we add the text as HTML tag, it's not changing the tag into formatted text (just Bold/Italic). Is there any way to display the notification as rich text including color?

  3. Change Bar

    Change bar, as a very basic future and just as applied easily in Adobe Framemaker, I belive most users will welcome this if it is added at no cost.
    Could you please consider adding this for next versions and provide it it for the current users. Thank you for your support.

  5. LayoutWindow: activePage... also need a displayedPage field

    LayoutWindow: activePage... also need a displayedPage field

    The field LayoutWindow::activePage does not change when the user navigates to another page until another insertion point is selected. I would like to be able to track the page that is currently displayed.

  6. InDesign Scripting : Events On PageItems

    Many elements of the page have the ability to subscribe to messages (events of change of such an item are especially interesting), but this does not work. Does the event system work only for UI, Application, and Document?

    There are too few documents that describe events on page items ...

  8. Make XML tags and attributes export as "hidden text" in Word so that it can be reimported

    Enable XML structure export to Word by formatting the exported tags and attributes in the same way that index entries are formatted. I need to preserve the XML when exporting to Word and then reimporting the updated Word file.

  9. Make possible search-for-tags in Story Editor

    I need to search for tags in Story Editor, or in any manner besides the Structure panel, to remove conditions that are arbitrarily applied by InDesign (when a word has a condition applied).

  10. Data Merge - display # of records per row based on CSV values

    Data Merge - When displaying records on a page, show records per row of data based on that row's column quantity value. For example, I have 100 records across 100 rows of data, and 1 record needs to be printed twice, another 3 times, another just once. Instead of the current workaround of having to create multiple rows for each record based on their desired quantity, I'd want one row per record and have one column called X (qty) to tell ID how many times to display that record.

  12. Maintain Scripts when updating

    My Adobe Indesign was recently updated to a newer version. Every time this happens I lose the scripts that were installed to make the program more productive. It would be great if you could update to a newer version of InDesign and not have to reinstall your scripts every time you update the program.

    When you update Indesign it can remember your preferences. Why can't it remember your scripts as well.

  13. iXBRL tagging - annual reports - ESEF reporting

    New regulations in Europe means that from 2020 all financial reports must be produced with XBRL tagging. InDesign is the single most used layout software for producing annual reports, but will be useless for the purpose without a solution for tagging.

    Are you working on a solution to this considerable challenge?
