  1. Please add support for natively placing HEIC format images in Indesign.

    I'm sure it's already in the works, but please add support for natively placing HEIC format images in Indesign. And how about webp images while you're at it? :)

  2. Please make System fonts invisible in the Font menu list

    Giving the possibility to delete those countless system fonts that come with MacOS Catalina from the font menu would be simply wonderful and a great feature.. They're way too many, they're useless and they disturb my workflow.

  3. Generate QR code, new feature: add image in center

    It is possible to put a small image in the center of QR codes. It the image is small enough, the QR code remains readable. It would be nice to be able to include an image with the Generate QR Code feature of Indesign. The size should be adaptable. Indesign either checks if the code still works or the user has to test this. If the image is an SVG icon (e.g. the LinkedIn logo), it should be possible to change its color.

  4. Add a 'Quantize' function

    A Quantize function should align selected vertices and layout element to the nearest document grid points. This allows for quick layout / design sessions to be aligned to grid after wards.

  6. Allow each section or master page spread to have a custom baseline grid

    I work on many books that have different sections, with different content. While I try to make sure everything fits and follows the same baseline grid, often that's just not the best solution. I end up using custom baseline grid options on text frames, but that also doesn't solve everything.
    It would be very useful to set a baseline grid that applies to a specific master page, or to a whole section.

  7. Frame fitting option auto-fit image to a percentage

    It would be helpful when using an Object Style that uses the frame-fitting option to include a percentage value, so for instance "place image proportionally at 100%"

  8. Content Placer Tool Thumbnail to Size

    Would it be possible to have an option to have the content placer tool thumbnail be proportional to the page it is being placed on? I use this tool to make large multiple image proofs from images placed into a client-supplied file and need to show them at the placed size. When I place them on the page, using the content placer tool, I cannot gauge the size until it is placed. I have to move them around to make them fit after placing a few and so on until all images are placed. Being able to see the size…

  9. Data Merge for spreads

    it should be possible to export Data Merge directly to PDF as spread. So you don't have to create an InDesign-File first or edit your InDesign-File to generate an single page file.

  10. Font size menu bars

    I would like to be able to increase the font size for menu bars, tools and mouse-over hints. It would be a great improvement in terms of accessibility.

  11. Highlighting non-consecutive words

    I would like to easily highlight non-consecutive words in a document, e.g. names of people in an article, so that I can apply a style sheet to all the highlighted words with one click of the style sheet.

    Don't want to use GREP, just a simple keystroke or keystroke combination, e.g. shift > highlight; shift, option > highlight.

    Carpel tunnel syndrome is bad enough.

    Thank you for the consideration.

  12. Alt-text inside Links Panel

    Can we have a column added to the Links Panel that lists the alt-text of the image so I can open/edit it from the links panel rather than finding it inside my document?

  13. ARROWS: Give arrow start/end a different color option from line type color

    It would be great if we were able to make the end of an arrow (from within the stroke panel) a different or complementary color from the arrow line itself. It would be a huge time saver from the other workarounds required to create something seemingly so simple. Especially if it could then be saved as an object style. I think many people would use this feature in their designs.

  14. Please allow resizing of a document with the ease of Illustrator's resizing tools.

    Please allow a document resizing tool, much like the tool in AI, for quick and easy document resizing. Sometimes it's hard to know what size I need the document to be so I have to go in multiple times to edit the size.

  15. Zoom tool improvements - fill window, scrubby zoom, and more

    Several improvements needed for the Zoom tool - scrubby zoom (as per other ideas posted), zoom buttons at the top (similar to PS, as attached image), ability to zoom out when clicking, ability to hold and zoom, ability to make the page/spread fill the window. Eliminate the need to go to View for anything that isn't click to zoom. Basically, simple features that come with Photoshop.

  16. Update links in the background

    Links should be updated in the background. It is always annoying when you have to wait for an image to load (possibly off a server) and you have to wait for it. Maybe the frame to update should just be locked until updated but not the whole document.

  18. QR code for EPC/Sepa cannot be generated in indesign

    I do not understand why, but plain text qr codes for EPC/Sepa are not correct when generated in indesign. They cannot be scanned from the bank apps.

  19. Need Better (and Less-Hidden) Accessibility Tagging Options

    Please make it much easier to add accessible alt-text to InDesign documents. There should be an accessibility panel and pre-check to make it very easy for designers.

    As it is now, it's too hidden: https://www.adobe.com/accessibility/products/indesign/alt-text.html

  20. Hebrew diacritics in Indesign

    It would be great if I could select a Hebrew vowel or a cantillation (trope) mark in liturgical texts and shift it vertically or horizontally. Currently in 16.3.2 Mac. I can select the marks blind, as it were, but they don't highlight and can't be shifted. The solution I've found is extreme kerning with the neighbouring consonant.
