Feature Description: This feature should work like in Illustrator or Photoshop (even After Effects can do it). Please see attached screen capture.
How it should work:
1. Insert the cursor before the first character in a line
2. Use the kerning in the character panel or with the shortcuts (ALT + arrow keys)
3. kerning should be applied
Why: This would be a productivity enhancement and make it much easier to optically align the first letter in a line manually without having to use the Optical Margin alignment that only works for a whole story.71 votes
Hanging punction is currently not working with chevrons (« ») – which are used in Germany, Spain, Italy, France & Norway. In Quark XPress this works perfectly with one click. I am a professional typographer and would like to have this issue fixed as soon as possible. Kind regards Egil Haraldsen6 votes
Because you sometimes want to REMOVE a character style and it would be very beneficial to be able to use a shortcut for that as well.49 votes
Please allow negative indentation!
That would make all kinds of hanging bullets, chapter numbers and outdentations easy without any workaround (like "indent everything but the headlines and lists" ...). It would make text layout faster, purer and cleaner, as the type area could be correctly defined just for the copy text.
I think this simple change should be easy to implement and bring enormous relief for our craft.29 votes
As it stands, text wrapping around an object only responds to this preference (and justifies) when it wraps around the left and right sides of the object. It should work even if it only wraps around one side.3 votes
I often need to set poetry extracts in books so that they are flush left to the longest centered line in the extract—see attached examples.
The workarounds a cumbersome and/or time consuming.
It would be great if there was a setting to do this automatically.30 votes
PLEASE add these features to the footnote and endnote functionality of InDesign:
- Continuous numbering of footnotes and endnotes throughout the various indd files within a book document
- Ability to put the endnotes of the different indd files within a book document in a separate .indd file at the end of the book; numbering continuous OR per chapter.49 votes
We need to have InDesign to support MathML, this is much awaited feature, but not supporting in InDesign yet.
Currently we're using 3rd party plugins such as MathType, MathTools, PowerMath, etc. but not meeting our expectation, also high license cost than InDesign.
@ALL: Please support to include this feature in InDesign in the very near release.261 votes

Please allow designers to use diagonal strike through text.
Designer should be able to ...
- Set the trike through line for single a text selection
- Define this in a paragraph style
- Use it as a property in a script
- choose a direction (top left to bottom right / Bottom left to upper right)
- define a line thickness and color
- choose to only display a part of the line below and on top of the text
Optical Margin Alignment does a great job allowing quotation marks and hyphens to hang into the column gutters, but it also make characters like A, W, and T do the same, which is often too high a price to pay. Fix this by allowing an option it to only apply it to punctuation.7 votes
There are many times that I receive text with double spaces between sentences and double paragraph returns and ### between sections and 4 or 5 tabs in a row. These can all be fixed with GREP expressions, but it would save time to be able to create a group of expressions that can launch with one click. Similar to Next Style in a paragraph style description. I am sure there are even more complex compound instances that would benefit from this.2 votes
When a forced line break is inserted within text that is used for a variable, a random, unavoidable letter space is introduced into the variable text.
There are obvious workarounds, but a solution to this would be really convenient.
See attached screenshots for example.40 votes
Full support to Mongolian vertical LTR and reading its font open type feature to combine characters. Currently using Mongolian Baiti or Noto Sans Mongolian fonts the characters in the words do not connect to the correct initial, medial or final forms. Only isolated forms are displayed. We tried any current settings but the characters do not combine. Is there a function to do this? We have not found any plug-ins so far. Perhaps it could be that the open type tables are not read which may be one reason for this. See the attached IndDesign file1 vote
It would be great if a baseline grid could optionally be assigned to a Master page in stead of a whole document.

An upgrade to the existing strike through option with new settings that allow for diagonal lines. I've added a mockup of the character style options.
This would be an awesome little update wich has many uses and make the life of a lot of InDesigners easier.2 votes
The new endote option is nice (could be better, but hey, it's something). The only thing that bugs me is the fact that a new page is added everytime I place text that contains endnotes, or when I copy/paste that text.
It screws up much of my design, and I have to manually delete the page and put everything back in it's right place.
Would be great if the endnote frame would just be placed on the same page as the end of the text flow!2 votes
Unicode is required to meet accessibility standards and several forms of publishing technologies.
The keyboard shortcuts and right-click/opt-click Insert Special Characters shortcuts need to be updated to insert the Unicode versions of these glyphs.
