  1. apply height or width to several image frames at once

    Sometimes I need to make a slight adjustment in size to several images in a piece, and they all need to be the same size. If there was a way to select them all and then type in the height/width to apply to each selected item rather than all of them as a whole, that would save a lot of time of having to select and size each one separately.

  2. Cloning à la Illustrator Repeat or Symbol Tool for x-up Printing?

    I've quickly grown to love Illustrator's Repeat feature, especially the ability to edit any instance of the repeated object. A feature akin to this for InDesign, or a "Live Repeat"/"Clone" would be a massive improvement for x-up layout!

  3. More options when resizing a layout

    If I need to resize a page/layout using Document Setup, ideally for me, all of the existing content would remain at the top of the page, so a new, taller page size would add more space at the bottom, or if I wish to shorten a page, empty white space would be removed from the bottom. InDesign 19.2 centers all content vertically on the new page size, which I can't imagine anyone would ever want, forcing the unnecessary step of moving everything back to the top of the new page. You could add a Photoshop-style grid icon to show where…

  4. Add access to text inset function via right click

    On a given shape, provide access to create text inset parameters via a right-click to the Text Frame Options menu box. Currently this access does not exist unless there is already text inside of the shape.

    Having this function makes process streamlined

  5. Options to individualize QR Codes

    It would be nice to have some features to individualize QR-Codes.
    For example to put a grafphic/trademark in the middle, rounding the edges, dots instead of squares... There could be many Options.
    "qrcode-monkey" has some good options to individualize QR Codes.

  6. I need in InDesign these tools: 1. in the «Path» I need «Outline Stroke 2. “Perespective” tool 3. the new “Generate” like what in Illustrat

    I do almost all design and drawings in the InDesign program, so I found these tools in Photoshop and Illustrator. It is nice and ok for me not to leave InDesign and do all the things I need for printing and layout.

    I am using InDesign Eastern language. (The Generating, is still not in the Eastern Version!!).

  7. Text Variables should support super/sub script

    Text variables should support incidental superscript and subscript. Currently, even with using GREP in the paragraph style which defines the super- or sub-script and placing on a master page, the text variable does not support these formats in actual placement on document pages. Very elementary feature that should be supported.

  8. Paragraph Rules Improvements

    I would be great if the Paragraph Rules menu received a couple of improvements:

    1) Add a chain link for when you want both the Color and Gap Color to be the same. Likewise for the Tint and Gap Tint percentage.

    2) This one is a bit difficult to explain, but one of the biggest annoyances with using Paragraph Rules to apply a RULE ON to text is that the rule expands/contracts in an undesired way if you change the size of a text box or if you add/delete something from the text. What should happen is that the rule…

  9. Align to page when only one item selected!

    I usually have 'Align to Selection' as my default. Wouldn't it be great if when only one item is selected that the align buttons use 'Align to Page'

  10. Resize Frames & Objects to Preset Aspect Ratios & Sizes

    It would be great to have a feature where a placed graphic, text frame or object could be quickly resized using the contextual menus to a choice of standard aspect ratios (4:3, 16:9 etc..) there would need to be options to crop, resize content proportionally etc.. Add the ability to add your own user ratios and physical size dimensions like the Photoshop crop tool and it would be very powerful.

    For example: it would be pretty slick if users could drop a 5:7 image onto their page and then right click to quickly crop to 16:9.

  12. Align from page edge

    Among the various types of “Align to:”, in addition to “Align to margins” and “Align to page”, it would be useful to also have an “Align from page edge”, considering the edge as an element to distance from. In this way, we can avoid putting empty blocks beyond the page margins to distribute the spacing of objects across the entire page.

  13. Change color to the QR Codes when using Data Merge

    InDesign is great for controlling your design, but when you're importing a QR code from a spreadsheet using Data Merge, it feels a bit limiting. It's like what Henry Ford said about having any color car, as long as it's black.

  14. Fonction break apart pour les elements de texte

    Bonjour, en tant qu'éditeur de feuillets publicitaires une fonction qui me manque dans Indesign est celle de pouvoir "casser" un grand paragraphe en lignes, c'est à dire que, lorsque je place mon descriptif de tous les produits présents sur mon dépliant je sois capable de le démembrer en lignes, contenant chacune le descriptif d'un produit, snas être obligé de copier ligne par ligne de mon ensemble de descriptifs pour constituer ainsi un bloc de text séparé pour chaque descriptif (cette fonction est présente sur CorelDraw sous la description "break apart" - CTRL+K).
    Une autre foction qui irrai de paire avec…

  18. Multiple caption metadata items on one line

    At the moment it appears I can create captions with more than one piece of metadata, such as copywright year and artist or Folder 0 and name. But each of these must be on its own line. There is no way to have all the data one one line unless I generate a static caption then use Find/Change.

    We should be able to make captions with multiple metadata tags inline without requiring a linebreak.

    Column rules are great, but why can't i add a column rule to a text box containing just one column of text? Is this a bug?

  20. Layer Arrangement (Send to Current Layer)

    Like it is in Illustrator, it would be super nice if there was a right-click option under >Arrange that would allow you to "Send to Current Layer." just small + quality of life, but it's how I'm used to working in Ai and would be nice to see additional congruency between these kinds of things!
