  1. InDesign home screen options

    It would be great if on the InDesign home screen you could:
    • sort recent jobs by name
    • display preview icons at different sizes, and

    • have an X to remove a file from your recent jobs preview list.

  2. UI Keep Options dialog (and Keep Options in Paragraph Styles)

    Can you please change the layout of the Keep Options Dialog Box so that it is clearer for end users? Attached you find a proposal from my part.
    The differences are:
    • More space between "Keep with Previous" and "Keep with Next" + added a line in between them.

    • Keep with Previous and Keep with Next. In the original it seems like you have to check the first (Keep with Previous) and to use the second (Keep with Next).

    • Indetation of the radio buttons under "Keep Lines Together" so that it is obvious that they are both part…

  3. please let us change default layer colors

    I would like to be able to change the default layer colors. I don't like that there are 2 shades of blue before other color options are being used. I know yellow was removed as a default layer color, but I didn't mind the yellow. So why not have us choose our own colors?

  5. Duplicate/ copy-paste object inside same group

    When I duplicate (alt+drag) an item that’s within a layer, the duplicate will be pasted outside the group in the layer panel.

    What I expect to happen is the duplicate to be pasted directly above the original, within the same group. When multiple groups are selected I expect each layer to be pasted above their original item inside each group, or ask me I i’d like to place them above each other.

    At least give us the option how this behaves in the layer panel. It’s annoyingly time consuming to have to manually put them back into the group instead…

  6. Option to minimise titlebar (as implemented in Bridge)

    I recently noticed that in Bridge the titlebar is scaled down 50%.
    It would be good if this would be implemented in InDesign (and Illustrator and Photoshop) too.
    Being it an option in the preferences > user interface scaling would be even more practical and logical.

  7. grid edit quick access from properties panel

    alt+doubleclick is learned behaviour to edit links, for example. I would love to see this work on the properties panel, esp to tweak the grid settings, internally llinking to the preferences UI. That would save a lot of time and be quite simple to implement.

    I use about 2/3 of the CC products regularly and the heterogeneous ui functionality drives me batty. in psd i click on the number and drag, in ai it takes three clicks to do the same. WHY?!?

  8. Scroll while editing Paragraph, Character, or Object style

    I usually have "Preview" checked while I'm editing a style to see how my changes affect the paragraph and everything surrounding it. The Style Options window is often blocking much of my view, even if I move it to the side, so I have to hit OK or Cancel, scroll so I can see everything, and then go back into editing the style. It would be useful if I could scroll while the Style Options window is open, much like I can while the Find/Change window is open.

  9. It is very troublesome to select fonts

    It is very troublesome to select fonts from a list when managing a large number of fonts. Also, even when selecting font names by typing, it is difficult to select candidates if there is a typing error.
    Please create a modern font selection feature.

  10. Make UI Scaling NOT affect document scaling

    The recently-added UI Scaling feature also scales the size my document is displayed! Why?? When I type command-1 to view my document at actual size, I expect an 8.5 x 11 page to be that size on the screen. But if I increase the scale of the UI (tools, pallets, etc.) it also increases the "actual size" scaling of my document so it's much bigger than it should be. So, in other words, the UI scaling should NOT affect the scaling of the document rulers; 1" should always be displayed at 1".

  11. Maintain the Layers Panel scroll position when switching between documents.

    Maintain the Layers Panel scroll position when switching between documents.
    At the moment when you switch between documents the scroll position of the Layers Panel 'resets' to showing the top most item in the layers list.
    On documents with many layers (where the scroll bar is present) every time you switch documents you have to scroll down to find the active layer. Very unproductive.

  12. The "Find and Replace Fonts" dialog box

    The "Find and Replace Fonts" dialog box does not allow searching and replacing fonts included in a composite font.
    This is inconvenient.

  13. Turn off preflight by default

    Since we work via Internet-connection, working with longer documents is a mess because after every move you make, the preflight check starts over and over again. The bigger the document, the longer it takes until you can finally start working again.

    I would like to have the opportunity to have preflight turned off by default. Only when I need it, I would like to turn on preflight.

  15. Put Distribute Spacing icons in the Control Bar

    I use these controls along with the align controls every day. There's no reason they can't be grouped together with the align controls in the control bar.

    I keep all my tool palettes on a second monitor, so the Align buttons in the control bar are 30" away from the Distribute Spacing icons in the Properties panel of the second monitor.

  16. I want to lock the palettes so I don't dislodge them accidentally

    I have a tremor in my hands and dislodge my palettes when I try to open them. They are so sensitive! My tremor doesn't impact my work in any other way but this. It is frustrating and embarrassing when I am teaching InDesign to others. I have customized my workspace and I would like to "lock" it so I can't accidentally dislodge palettes. Of course I would still need to open and close and expand them as needed.

  17. Add shortcut to clean up open panels

    I often lose a panel when I'm working. A shortcut and/or View menu item to rearrange open panels so they do not overlap would save me a LOT of time hunting for them.

  18. Redesign keyboard shortcut system to mimic that of After Effects

    After effects uses a mappable graphic interface of a keyboard. Utilizing this interface would make reassigning keyboard shortcuts a much simpler and more intuitive endeavor. Along with allowing any command to be assignable to any keystroke/key combination it would be unbeatable. I don't understand why this isn't just the Adobe standard for all desktop applications. Can they not share? They put so much effort into syncing through the cloud but they don't put effort into matching their programs up to each other.

  19. Standardize action of Ctrl-F (should be Find/New Find, not toggle Find window)

    In ID, Ctrl-F (Cmd-F) toggles the Find/Change window open and closed.

    Only the first instance behaves in a globally correct manner, by opening the F/C window if it is closed, and placing the cursor in the "Find" field.

    Every other application of the last several decades then uses Ctrl-F to start the next new search, by placing the cursor in the Find field.

    ID instead toggles the F/C window shut, and any user conditioned (by, again, every other app in use) to start typing a new search term finds themselves typing into the document instead.

    While the Find/Change feature has…

  20. View menu > Fit Page Width to Screen

    1. Add a command under the View menu—Fit Page Width to screen.

    2. When I'm editing and formatting type, I like to make the type as large as possible, but still fit the page width to the screen, so I don't have to scroll.
