  1. Moving the IDLK temp file

    It would be nice to have an option in Preferences to be able to move the temporary IDLK file which is automatically created at the same level as the edited file. Kind of like Photoshop.
    Because if the edited file is located in a DropBox or GoogleDrive (or other) folder, Dropbox or GoogleDrive spend their time updating this file, which is very detrimental in terms of bandwidth and processor occupancy.

    Thank you

  3. Reveal in Bridge Automatically Installs Bridge

    There's a few places in InDesign where you can accidentally hit the "Reveal in Bridge" and if you don't have this installed on your computer already - it will auto-install the app from the Creative Cloud.

    I don't think it should do this - it should prompt you to if you want to install this to your computer rather than forcing the download.

    I also would like an option to Disable the Reveal in Bridge - as I don't use it and it's so annoying when you have to go back and uninstall apps that you never wanted installed.

  4. Allow individuals to print or save PDF from Share For Review link

    Currently you are unable to accurately print a document shared for review directly from InDesign in the cloud service. There should be a toggle to enable the option to do so from the individual sharing the file. Many people like to physically markup documents in addition to their digital comments.

  5. Ability to sync text variables via Creative Cloud Libraries

    Similar to another suggestion here requesting the ability to import .csv content as variables: it would also be useful to be able to insert a text variable into an InDesign document from an external source such as Creative Cloud Libraries. This would enable a simple central location for variable information (eg prices, product specs etc) that could then be used across multiple documents. Updating the central data would then update all 'linked' variables when an InDesign document is opened, removing the need to manually update and the subsequent risk of human error.

  6. Allow object style to be added to cc libraries

    Allow object styles to be added to CC libraries just like paragraph and character styles. with my paragraph styles panel open all I have to do is select a style and the double square with and arrow icon in the bottom left corner to add to my current selected library. I'm asking to be able to do the same thing with object styles.

  7. Decide what folder that will be synced in creative cloud

    Since we can have really big data storage in the creative cloud today I miss the function to choose what folders/projects I need on my local device that has less amount of storage than my cloud license. So I suggest a function Microsoft OneDrive have like "free up space" that removes the local copy. Most cooperate computers don have 1Tb disks so today with shared folders you can fill your disk quick and you cant control it in a good way.

  9. CC Libreries

    Sería estupendo contar con un sector de búsqueda por texto dentro de la ventana CC LIbraries para archivos y elementos subidos. Cuando guardo archivos le pongo un nombre por ejemplo: Logotipo de piscina 01. Entonces, me es más práctico buscar por nombre ya que la ventana tiene miniaturas demasiado pequeñas.


    It would be great to have a search placeholder within the CC Libraries window for files and uploaded items. When I save files I give it a name, for example: Pool logo 01. So, it is more practical for me to search by name because CC librarines has small
    thumbnails

  11. Creative Cloud Documents - File Open facility needs vital features

    I think one of the most important facilities for making good use of Cloud Docs will be document management. I have been extremely frustrated by the total lack of such features in the recent Document Open interface, which just lists some very small number of recent docs, without any consideration of folders, projects, clients, or other important organizational features. The OS provides us with hierarchical folders that can do a fairly good job of organizing the dozens (sometimes hundreds) of files on a project or for a client, but without some facilities for that purpose, I can see the proliferation…

  12. Single Page Send for Review

    Very excited for the Send for Review feature. We've been using Acrobat to do this, so having it baked into is a game changer. Is there a way to review the document as single pages instead of spreads? It helps our writers and copy editors read easier with single pages. Thank you for your help!

  13. Relink from CC Libraries Sorting

    When relinking assets in InDesign using "Relink from CC Libraries" , the CC Libraries panel that shows isn't capable of having it's sort order (date modified vs alphabetically) changed nor is able to show groups - please fix so it has the same view functionality as the regular CC Library Panel.

  14. Export All Comments

    Hello,

    I would like to request the ability to export all comments, whether from pins or drawn shapes, made on documents on assets.adobe.com. Once files are moved off of Creative Cloud, all comments are lost, so it would be great to be able to save comments for posterity prior to files being archived somewhere else.

    Thank you.

  15. Control the limit of up and download speed for Creative Cloud sync

    Today you can not control the sync speed for Creative cloud on an actual speed like 10Mb/s or similar its more like Fast, Medium, Slow. on cooperate networks its better to set a fix max limit so not one user slows down the whole network GW. It would be great if this value could be set when creating the package in admin console

  16. Allow using existing folder path for cloud sync

    currently there is no option to choose existing folders i want to backup \sync to the cloud
    so this makes the idea of sync useless for me, since if i would change my existing projects folder paths it would break things up in my projects files links

    curretly adobe forces the user to use their folder (under any path) and place the files there

    very poor workflow !

  18. Adobe Fonts Auto Activation/Deactivation

    As a printing company, I have a wide variety of customers using a wide variety of fonts including ones that are part of an Adobe CC subscription. When I open an InDesign file that uses Adobe (online) fonts, give us a preference setting to auto-activate those online Adobe fonts AND to deactivate those fonts when the InDesign file is closed. I can't have a bunch of fonts activated all the time as they COULD interfere with an older version of the font causing type reflow!

  19. CC Library

    Allow inline placed text to be linked the way objects are. I.E., multiple formatted text objects from the library in one text frame, but individually linked beginning and end points, similar to a data merge tag.

  20. Use Creative Cloud Library items in G-Suite/Google Slides

    I would like to be able to use the images that we add to our team's Creative Cloud Library inside of Google Slides so we can have one canonical place for all our assets to use across ID, PSD, AI and G-Suite.
