  1. Align Panel

    The Align panel has the options to align to the selection, page, margin, key object and spread. You have to click on the icon to open a drop down and choose which one. There is plenty of empty space. I attached a mockup of the way it is now vs. how it should be. As someone thats constantly aligning things to pages and then selection, quick changing would be greatly appreciated!

  2. Create a text variable window to see and edit values faster

    Right now you have to open each variable independently. Then if you want to change the value you have to save and exit each variable. Also you have to open each variable to see the value.

    Please create a Text Variable Window with two columns. One for the Name the other for the value. This way we can see the variable and edit the variable. Add the add icon, and add duplicate variable icon.

  4. Why do you have the Dictionary type in this location:

    We refer to the Dictionary type, once in a blue moon, if ever. It doesn't need to be so easily accessible.
    One thing that would be useful to occupy this space: the Paragraph Styles drop down menu. We refer to this one numerous times in one day.

  5. Functionality for Properties Panel - similar to Illustrator Properties Panel

    I love the properties panel in InDesign. It's fantastic for beginners. I have them set up the interface to look a lot like PS and AI. I think it makes it easier to learn and feels more familiar if they have experience with the other apps. The properties panel in Illustrator has fantastic functionality. The panels are all there so you don't have to open the floating panels. The ... allows you to open the actual panel if you need more. I would like the InDesign Properties panel to work the same way. There are commands hidden in the paragraph…

  6. Home button should not disappear

    It's somewhat annoying for the home button to constantly disappear / reappear because I watch people (and myself) misclick on the File menu or maximize the program accidentally many times a day. Just leave it there all the time like in Photoshop (it's also incredibly annoying that this behavior is inconsistent across apps.)

  7. Update / Upgrade the Numbering & Sections Dialogue Panel

    The Numbering & Sections Dialogue Panel is long overdue for an upgrade. Page numbering defaults to however the first section is numbered --working with publications, the first section is often Roman numerals while the bulk of the book is Arabic numbering, which means changing the numbering style every time a new section is created.
    And the Section Marker field is much too small.
    It really would be good if the Section Markers and Text Variables were all combined into a single, flexible method for labeling publication sections.

  8. Indesign: Add Previous and Next Buttons in Text Variables input screen

    Right now you have to open, save and close each text variable. Please add Previous and Next Buttons in the text variable input screen so you don't have to open and closes each time to edit/add.

  9. Quick Key for increaseing space between paragraphs.

    A quick key for increasing space between paragraphs would make it quicker to explore and establish paragraph styles. It would be great if there were quick keys to adjust the spacing around the first and last line too, but the space between paragraphs seems more important, personally speaking.

    How about Command + Option + Shift + up/down Arrow Keys so it's similar to the quick key to increase/decrease leading.

  10. Line Spacing in Story Editor

    Seems like it would make more sense if you could edit the line spacing for the story editor as you would in any text box, rather than being locked into just a few options. For instance, someone might find it easier to read at 1.15 spacing, or want to customize for another reason.

  11. Fully black theme

    As a low vision user, I'd appreciate if there was a fully black inDesign theme. I use the darkest, but it'd be nice if there was a total black background option.

  12. Preflight Profile for Accessibility

    Add options to run accessibility checks in InDesign. Acrobat already has the ability to run an accessibility check. It would be so helpful to be able to run a preflight check for issues (e.g., alt text, table headers) before exporting.

  13. Better Relinking to CC Libraries

    I'd love to see some much needed quality of life/functionality improvements to CC Libraries in InDesign when relinking:

    • Ability to Search when relinking

    • Ability to see/sort by groups when relinking

    • Ability to change view (thumbnail/list) when relinking to CC Libraries

    • Infact, anything more than the current 'Relink to CC Librarires' functionality, which is literally just a list of every single asset in that library sorted by name

    We have thousands of assets in some of our libraries, which are all nicely sorted by group. But this is useless when this is completely ignored by the CC Libraries panel.

  14. Urgent Improvement Request: Please improve the application of UI setting options in the sense of an essential accessibility aid

    Urgent Improvement Request: Please implement a more consistent application of UI setting options (especially "Dark Mode") in the sense of an essential accessibility aid.

    The adaptability of the user interfaces in some Adobe Creative Cloud apps (e.g., InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects, etc.) is not consistently executed. The needs of individuals, including designers and developers, with visual impairments (yes, they do exist!) are largely overlooked. This is not a trivial matter and could be considered discriminatory. Especially considering that Adobe Creative Cloud is an outstanding and decades-evolving app network for professionals that creative individuals cannot ignore. Adobe dominates…

  15. InDesign for Apple Vision Pro

    Hello,

    I am an Artistic Designer that uses InDesign for about 30 hours a week. I essentially live within InDesign for work. I would very much like if you would make a full fledged InDesign available within Apple's Vision Pro headset. I'm not even asking for a Spatial redesign, though it would be amazing eventually. Just support for downloading and installing the full version of InDesign without an unnecessary additional subscription or mobile friendly version. Please, this would make a huge difference to a lot of people.

  16. Version number on splash screen?

    Sometime I have more than one version of InDesign on my Windows PC, especially if the latest release is buggy. It would be very useful to have the program version number show up on the splash screen when you start the program.

  17. Allow to resize the Keyboard Shortcuts window

    Please make the Keyboard Shortcuts window resizable!

    Namely, to make it taller.

    Right now it's just too small and requires a lot of annoying scrolling to find the desired menu item.

  18. Please add "Default search scope" to the Preferences

    Hi, Adobe design team!
    I'm sorry to say, but NEVER IN MY LIFE have I wanted to search for something inside a single Story. It's kinda infuriating to have to switch to "Document" as the Search scope every time. Can we please have the chance to change, what is our default?
    Thanks in advance!

  19. Allow pop-up panels such as paragraph styles editor to be resized

    When the operating system font size and/or software UI scale is increased it causes the bottom of the panel to be too long and clipped off under the Windows taskbar. Most of the panel is just empty grey space so can be scaled down without losing any of the contents.

  20. Buttons and forms (Interactive) panel needs revamping

    The panel is barely usable in it's current form for anything more than a few buttons per page due to not being able to increase the height and width of the panel, especially the visibility section when a button is highlighted. At the bare minimum this needs to be resizable so that more can be seen so that linking and adjusting the on/off states of buttons can be performed more easily.

    Ideally, the panel needs an overhaul so that multiple buttons can be shift+selected so that they can be set to be called before being visible by default, or switched…
