  3. It would be nice to have the brush tool and pen tool act the same in indesign as it does for illsutrator.

    So I wouldn't have to go between the two to make the illustration for a page or article. As of right now the pen tool and brush tool in indesign do not have the fluidity and functionality that they could. Why can't I see the line I am forming using the indesign pen tool? I think the brush tool and pen tool in indesign are far less functional than they are in photoshop even (the brush tool), but especially illustrator and its pen tool outdoing its indesign counterpart.

  4. to turn of pages like a book

    Good Morning. I don't understand why isn´t there the option of turning the page like in a book betwen the transitions of pages of InDesign2021.

    Will it be added in the near future?
    Is it possible now with other app of Adobe? I've got the complet pack

    Greetings.

  6. Compatibility with Google Chrome

    As a college student studying remotely, it would be helpful if there were a feature that allowed InDesign to be compatible with Google Chrome.

  8. The ability to link Excel Charts and Graphs within InDesign

    Link directly to charts and graph content which can be refreshed by updating the Excel link. I often use the ability to link data and tables, but really need to be able to do the same with charts and graphs. Thanks.

  9. Add Delete File option

    We should be able to delete InDesign files. Not just set them to zero in a masking action, as is in the community forum. Then we lose access to files. Is this the only program, ever, in which the user cannot delete a file? Why? I am getting so many files left over from drafts, that it hinders my work. It will go on an on. At some point I will have to make a written log of each file I save, so I can mark them as which ones had a flaw, or wasn't needed for which reason, since…

  10. Request to have InDesign Server added to our Admin portal for downloading and user management

    NOAA has one Admin portal where we access all licensed software. I am writing to request that access be provided to download this software. We are licensed for one copy and Anthony Johnson is the licensed user (anthony.johnson@noaa.gov). Have to go to the LWS site to grab it and the serial number is counter to where I thought Adobe was going with all of its software. Proof of ownership is attached. -Mike

  11. Share for Review

    I was excited to see the Share for Review feature roll-out in the newest June 2020 update. However, I have already experienced issues.
    1. It only exported one page in my document.
    2. I 'invited' members, but when they got the link, it prompted them to enter a password (that I never set and don't want to set).

    I work with a lot of non-technical savvy folks who just need the ability to see my work and comment without the need to log in or create an Adobe ID. Forcing them to do this will alienate users (our clients) and…

  14. Trademark in french

    Hi,
    I'm a graphic designer in a cooperate company who is putting content in both English and French. We use your shortcut for trademark in english (TM), but in french, marque de commerce (MC), doesn't exist in Glyphs. I have to superscript the letter MC, make the font smaller, baseline shift to 2 or more, it's over-tired. Can InDesign have a "MC" Glyphs for the french language, at least in Canada?

  15. Have a Dropdown arrow in the middle of Control/any Panel in Indesign So when the Mouse is Hoverd/Clicked on it The Menu/Options show up

    I like the Properties Panel idea And Hiding the Control Bars on top to maybe look less daunting to newcomers but What if It has a DropDown arrow. A small panel tucked inside on top of Indesign while having a dropdown arrow in the middle so when the mouse is clicked/hovered on top it falls down occupying the same amt of space. Can also be used on every other Panel the Right one as well. Just Hover the Mouse to the extreme Right and the Panel shows up and when not more viewing space for the file. I m not…

  16. Equation Editor for Mac OS version

    It is very sad that Adobe relies so heavily on third party developer to fix issues for services that we CC subscribers pay for already. It is very dissapppointing that I have to search the internet for an app or plugin to do something that should be built into a product such as Indesign. I should not have to purchase anything that creates a function that this software should provide based on the context of what it is supposed to do. Indesign is in all forms a layout and typeset application that for the steep cost should provide the ability…

  18. Automatic image link if the Links folder is in the same folder as the document.

    InDesign should automatically find images if the Links folder is in the same folder as the document. The old InDesign was able to do this. I'm constantly having to update links when the folder is moved around, and this also means re-saving the file, which changes the modification date.

  19. Feature gone missing, InDesign

    Shift/Command - or + NO LONGER WORKS! What happened????????? How can anyone design without this feature. 3.0hr on phone with Adobe, no solutions, sent to this screen to write out Help!

    This command did work, now it's GONE! Will need to cancel Adobe because it's useless without this command! The solution they gave me, made images squished and unusable. No designer will be able to use InDesign.

  20. 【If this function can be realized is too important to Chinese ancient books!】如果能实现这个功能对中国古籍太重要了!

    I'm using InDesign 2020 (Chinese). Some of China's ancient books and historical materials are arranged vertically from the left, this function is very important for the collection and imitation of Chinese ancient books! For the program, the implementation of this function should not be too difficult, but in fact not, it is a pity! I really hope that the next version will be available for this feature. It would be great if it could really be done, so thank you! This new version will be the most sold in China!

    我使用的是InDesign 2020(中文版)。中国一些古代书籍和历史资料是从左侧竖着排列,这个功能对收集和仿制中文古籍非常重要!对于程序来说,实现此功能应该并不会太难,但实际上并非如此,真可惜!真的非常希望下一个版本将可用这个功能。如果真能实现这功能那真的是太棒了,那就太感谢了!这个新版本将会是在中国有史以来Indesign卖得最多的一次!
