  1. Different layers for each page in a document

    Each page in a document can have different layers. When producing artwork for personalised print items (like mailers) it would be good for each version (page) to have it's own variable layers to avoid having lots of layers that could lead to data being omitted if layer turned off

  2. Improve Conversion of Adobe Illustrator Documents Into InDesign Documents

    It is a sad, sad day when you realize you built an entire library of corporate charts in the wrong Adobe app. And an even sadder day when you realize that converting Adobe Illustrator files into Adobe InDesign files is not straightforward. You will now spend hours creating text boxes, with copy-pasta-weary fingers... If only converting illustrator text to indesign text were easier... Alas, my fate is bound. Woe is me. I shall make a weak cry out for help to Adobe developers before I continue my trudging along in my pitiful sorrow.

    Description:
    I am trying to convert Illustrator…

  3. Overall project file contains different documents

    It would be good to have the ability to combine several individual InDesign docs into one project file. So when the project is opened all docs are shown as separate tabs. Quark Express did this with 'Jackets' or something like that. This would tidy up job folders and maybe speed up the 'collect for output' stage if InDesign did them all at once rather than have to do individually with several fonts and images folders

  4. Grid view when zoomed out

    Please allow pages to move into a grid view when zooming out. This would allow for page layout artists to look at the "big picture" view all at once without the endless scrolling. Attaching two pictures, one is what indesign looks like now, the second is what it looks like in Microsoft Word which is a MUCH more helpful view. If this is already available, please let me know, I'd love to use this feature!

  5. Delete unused Parent Pages

    In complex documents some Parent pages can end up childless.
    It would be nice to let InDesign automatically detect those, and delete 'm in one go.

  6. Batch Rename Multiple Layers at once. Find/Change Names of Layers.

    Would be nice to rename multiple Layers at once in Indesign like renaming Files in a Finder-Folder. Or with a additional function for Find/Change.

    Usecase in the picture below. Have to rename several Layers for exporting with scripts. Always double-click is annoying. Would improve my Workflow a lot.

  7. PDF Pages Links Name alignment

    When i placed multiple PDF Page files, alignment is not right as i wanted.
    alignment numbers may line up truly. As sample top to down (1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11)

  8. Adjust pagenumbers if sheets are hidden

    It's a great feature to be able to hide sheets. But, if we do so, the automatic pagenumbers should adjust to the shown pages, not counting the hidden pages as well.

  9. New “Hide Spread/Show Spread” feature: automatic page number adjustment

    I was excited to discover the new 'Hide Spread/Show Spread' feature in InDesign. Page numbers on visible spreads don’t adjust automatically when other spreads are hidden in the document. Thus the feature becomes useless for any document that uses page numbers – at least within my workflow.

  12. Footnote starting feature

    I have a suggestion
    I would like to see an option to restart footnote numbering. An option to number footnotes according to paragraph style would be good.

  13. Please Add "Screen" Intent Option for Creating New Documents

    Please add a new Intent option called "Screen" as a choice when creating a new INDD file. The current choices of Print, Web, and Mobile don't cover what I need for creating PPT backgrounds for slide shows, stills and lower thirds for our video team. Page sizes could be at least: 1366 x 768, 720p, 1080p, and possibly 3840 x 2160 for 4K. This would save time from rifling through the other options for the right dimensions, creating a custom size, changing measurements, and changing color profile.

  14. Larger thumbnails in the Page Pallet

    I would like to see the thumbnails in the InDesign Page Pallet larger so that components of the page are easily recognizable. Currently the Jumbo thumbnail size is not sufficient. Perhaps a slider feature similar to 'View Options' in Apple Finder?

  15. List out page numbers when deleting pages

    When deleting pages, a simple "You are deleting pages #X- #X" confirmation would be great, just to confirm the intended pages are selected for deletion. Currently, it just confirms you want to delete "the selected pages," which is vague.

  16. Hidden pages alert

    PLEASE add an alert on a PDF export if pages are hidden. For many projects, we cannot risk have pages hidden in the final PDF (i.e., proposals).

  17. Zoom when clicking on errors in the Preflight window

    One thing has been bothering me for a long time in Indesign. I am working on a document and activate my print control in the Preflight window, if I then find errors, e.g. under "Text", I simply click on the underlined number of the page on the right and am then taken to where the error is. Unfortunately, it is always set to my 1:1 zoom, so if I want to investigate the error more closely, I have to zoom in manually or with my zoom-shortcut. If I click on the page again at the next error, I end up…

  18. Move both documents pages when in Split vertical mode

    When comparing two documents in Split vertical window mode it would be handy for both documents to move to the next page at the same time rather than having to move one, then the other.

  19. More detailed document presets

    If I'm regularly creating designs for which I'll need a variety of page layouts — say for example, a Facebook image, an Instagram image, a YouTube thumbnail, and a print flyer — I'd like to create a document preset that includes all of these.

    Currently, you can only have one page size in a document preset, but I'd like to be able to designate something like "page 1 is letter size, page 2 is 1920x1080," etc.

  20. Add ability to make resusable/editable linked COMPONENTS (like in XD)

    InDesign has been dancing around the edges of this idea for years, with half-baked features like snippets, libraries, linked items in the content grabber....but it never has gotten it right. What we need is something exactly like the "components" feature in Adobe XD. We grab some objects, and then "Make Component" out of them. Then we can plop multiple instances of that component throughout the document. If we go back and edit the "Main Component" those changes are automatically applied to all placed instances of it.

    Yes, I know you can place one indesign doc into another, which is the…
