  1. Enable Find (from Find & Change) in checked in content (Incopy workflow)

    Currently the Find feature does not work on content which is checked in in an Incopy workflow. It seems like an unnecessary technical restriction which hopefully could easily be changed. E.g. when you'd be on the phone with copywriter while that person is working on the content and you need to quickly find certain sections. Or you need to place an image next to a certain passage.

    (I understand it can be activated by checking out all stories, but there are scenarios when this would be unpractical.)

    I reckon it should be technically not challenging to implement, while logic to…

  2. Make it possible to view names associated with user colors

    InCopy allows users to pick user colors, which are displayed with tracked changes and with notes. But, far as I can tell, there's nowhere I can go to see which user is using each color, unless they leave a note. The editor spends valuable time playing detective about who's making which changes. Could you implement an "alt text" triggered by hovering over tracked changes, similar to how the username pops up when I hover over a note?

  3. Option to not include InCopy Assignments when Packaging an InDesign file.

    When using the Package feature, we need an option to choose whether or not to include InCopy .icml assignment links. I need to send a packaged InDesgin document with links, fonts, etc. to 3rd party designers. They won't need the InCopy assignments, and I don't want missing link error messages when they open the file.

  4. InCopy default view preferences

    It would be great if InCopy users could set their own "view" preferences and have them be used when opening all InDesign documents. Currently the screen mode (Preview or Normal) is determined by the last InDesign user that saved the INDD. This is the same for grids and guides (something InCopy users usually don't need to see).

    Ideally this should work the same way you can set the default view of Layout/Galley/Story by doing so without a document open.

  5. Ctrl + Backspace

    In almost any Windows program (including InDesign) hitting Backspace while pressing Ctrl deletes the word to the left of the cursor., while hitting DEL while pressing Ctrl deletes the word to the right.

    With InCopy on Windows, the word to the right is removed no matter if you use DEL or Backspace. This is very irritating and a bit pointless, since Backspace and DEL are just a few cm apart.

    Also, I find myself wanting to delete the word to the left of the cursor much more frequently than the word to the right. For me this is a deal…

  6. Spell check with glyphs

    I added words with glyphs to my custom dictionary. In the spell check and spelling context menu these glyphs are not visible. I see f.ex haha-yoga in stead of Hatha-yoga ( the t in this word has a dot underneath). So my request is to make spell check work with glyphs.

  7. Fully support Metric units of measure for ALL Adobe applications!

    ALL Adobe products should allow type sizes to be specified using Metric units of measure instead of Imperial units of measure. This would avoid errors from converting between two different units of measure.

    This website (https://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/metric-typo/) also recommends the use of a publishing 'metric point' equivalent to .25 mm because it corresponds to the dot pitch of many computer monitors.

    There is also a unit of measure called the English Metric Unit that is equal to 914400, which would make it easier for your programmers to convert between Imperial and Metric units of measure. Please see http://polymathprogrammer.com/2009/10/22/english-metric-units-and-open-xml/.

  8. InCopy Autoflowing Text takes forever (a long time)

    i use InCopy as a notes app since 2015. the file i write on is now almost 5 mb big. and i noticed that over the years it takes longer and longer for incopy to open my document. and it is because of "Autoflowing Text" i do not even know what it is and i can't even google it. But it takes so long. what i have been doing over the years is that i just wait for it to finish. But now i am trying to find a setting in preferences to turn it off whatever it is so…

  9. Quick key and/or eyedropper tool option for ALL CAPS and lowercase in inDesign

    Having to use dropdown menu (and noting conspicuously absent quick key notation) is so tedious when you have to do this 100 times
