  1. Please change wording for German translation of forced line break

    The term »forced line brake« has been wrongly translated to German quite a while ago. There exist two terms in German for the »forced line break« that lead to confusion among users because they are used interchangeably.

    One is (translated) »hard line brake« the other one »soft line brake«. But what in a line break is soft or hard? This makes no sense at all.

    It would be great to just use the literal translation of the English term which is »Erzwungener Zeilenumbruch« (SHIFT + Return).

    Please find attached instances of the use in the German UI. Thanks!

  2. UI – Some Buttons are missing InDesign CC 2020 (OS X)

    Hello,

    I’ve updated InDesign to the newest version 15.0 (InDesign CC 2020) on OS X.
    And some buttons in the top window border are missing like the percent and the GPU rocket.

    Is it possible to put these back?! Or do I have to change it anywhere in the menu? Can’t find it.

    Best
    Sascha

    The InDesign team appreciates your valuable feedback and concerns. These go a long way in helping us make InDesign better for you and update it continuously to cater to evolving user needs. The app bar design was changed as part of these improvement efforts, and will also help us in introducing some modern and exciting functionalities which we have been working on.

    While doing this, we have taken care not to remove any existing functionalities which were available in the previous App Bar design. These have only been relocated – either grouped along with similar functionalities (based on results from our user research) or shifted to improve usability (to provide a consistent experience) while working across Creative Cloud apps, especially Photoshop (Ps) & Illustrator (Ai), which are frequently used by InDesign users. We do understand that it takes time & effort in adopting these but we sincerely hope that the…

  3. Better UI scaling option

    The only way to adjust the UI size in Indesign is to change the scaling for your whole system, and even then it only supports up to 200% scaling and there is no way to make it bigger beyond that.

    I got a new laptop with a HD 4k screen and its already scaled to 250% (I'm using Windows 10) but the user interface is still too small and it really slows down my workflow. Even if increasing my OS scaling to 300%+ fixed it (which it doesn't), it would still be infuriating to have everything on my computer scaled…

  4. Icon Localization for Asian Users

    I am a Korean user.
    The menu and description is well displayed in Korean.
    But why does the Japanese Hiragana 'あ' appear on the letter ratio icon and the lettering icon?
    Does Chinese users see that icon too?

    It seems that CJK version is using icons together while localizing.
    If Adobe respects each country's culture, I would like to change that icon to suit each country.
    (ex: '가' for Korean users)
    If that's difficult, I'd like to mark it with the alphabet 'A'.

  5. Revert to original, efficient New Document dialogue box.

    An option to revert to the old, more compact and efficient "New Document" window.

    There are 8,342 awesome ideas of additions and updates for InDesign on this site, yet someone took the time to make this new interface... If you have used InDesign for more than 1 day you don't need this. It is huge, and inefficient. There used to be an option to revert to this style but it is gone now.

    Efficiency is KING in InDesign. If we wanted a clunky, chunky UI we could use a Microsoft product ;-)

    Thanks!

  7. Workspace Sync across devices

    Have your Workspace for all Adobe applications saved in your CC account. Like many others, I work off and sign into more than 1 computer (3 in my case). It would be great if I'm signed-in and can see my saved workspace already allocated in the application. Instead of re-tweaking my Workspace manually on every device.

    Computers crash, major updates happen, and every-time we lose our settings, just a nice addition to add for the users.

    Thanks so much, keep up the good work.

  8. Complete integration of InDesign Form and Acrobat Form

    Scenario: The client needs content changes after approving design/form process -- that means I scrap all of my acrobat calculations in the form fields to make the changes in InDesign.

    It would be great(!) if InDesign supported either a "round-trip" editing process or has all of the features of Acrobat forms. I really don't care to edit in Acrobat, because InDesign is far superior for layout of complicated forms, with more editing tools, master pages, layers, etc.

    As a side note, I think a really great feature would include a "form cell" style, for both character and paragraph. It is…

  11. Allow for selecting a set of Links for relinking, not just parent link or individual link

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/quot-how-may-i-select-multiple-links-for-re-linking/m-p/11682784?page=1#M407985

    Looking to perform "Select Multiple Link Replacement”

    Right now I can Re Link Parent Link (of ALL Instances) and change 1000 instances of an image.

    Right Now I can Relink ONE individual “Child” instance or ONE image at a time.

    But I cannot SELECT and RELINK Multiple Selected Links (example: 10 out of the 1000) SELECT instances of an image.

    The only way to presently do this is to highlight the 10 instances and then Relink them one by one where a dialogue box opens and requires me to repeat the link process and click OK all 10 times.…

  12. Add page range option to find/change

    find/change dialogue box > SEARCH field drop down menu

    Add ability to select a page range.

    This would be particularly useful when it comes to replacing swatches. Let's say you have a section of a book that is GREEN and another section that is BLUE. If you had a range option you could easily use find/change to swap the two colors but as of right now, this is not the case. You have to use a temporary GREY as a placeholder, find/change the BLUE to GREY, then the GREEN to BLUE, and finally the GREY to GREEN. It feels like…

  14. Working with multiple files - When a file is closed, rather than skipping to the last file, got to the next file in order

    Description:

    I have multiple files open at once.

    When finished working on the first, if I close it, InDesign will skip to the last file that was opened, rather the next file in the order.

    See attached - I closed “untitled 1” and it skipped to “untitled 5” rather than going to “untitled 2” which is next in line.

    Why this would be valuable:

    This interrupts an expected workflow to InDesign's usual left to right UI direction.

    InDesign allows users to reorder the file tabs to suit their needs. Skipping to the end file in unexpected behaviour and switching back…

  15. User-definable colors for highlighting H&J Violations

    With checked Preferences / Composition / Highlight H&J Violations, the default colors for highlighting them (against paper background) are yellow and violet, plus some shades of them. As I seem to have some trouble in visually identifying those colors when present as light shades, I’d like to be able to modify them in order to work better for me. Thank you :-)

  16. Saving files - please have just filename selected, not extension

    This used to be how it was, I can't tell you how much time I waste selecting an insertion point to rename the file.

  17. Hide Selection handles en text marquee

    When designing, the inverted selected text is disturbing. Please add a shortcut to switch it off temporarily (like in Ae and Ai).

  20. How do I install the HP Support Solutions Framework?

    The HP Support Solutions Framework or HPSSF is a program developed by Hewlett-Packard which offers a common set of software interfaces. It allows the users to access and manage the drivers, hardware, and BIOS settings. If it got uninstalled from your system, then you don’t have to reinstall it separately. Instead, the newly developed HP Support Assistant functions the same way. If you don’t have it on your system then just visit the HP support website, 123.hp.com, and install the HP support assistant on your system.
