  2. QR error correction level

    It would be nice to have more control over the QR code generator. To be more specific: add the option to choose de Error Correction Level of the code.
    That way we can make small codes smaller, (especially in combination with a url-shortner) or normal codes slightly bigger to have enough error correction to have a gap in the middle (for a logo).

  3. For the love that all is good and right, please provide an option to disable the "missing fonts" dialogue box upon opening files.

    For those of us who have, for years, been opening InDesign files where we know there are missing fonts, we've literally wasted several weeks of our lives clicking the "skip" button. Can you please include a preference that allows us to turn-off this feature?

  4. Reveal in Bridge should Select File in Bridge

    In macOS, Reveal in Finder not only reveals the file, but selects it in the Finder.

    Reveal in Bridge should work the same way, to make it easier to immediately manipulate the file (such as updating metadata).

  7. Make Display Performance High Quality by Default.

    I have been using Indesign for about 10 years. I thought in the past when you set display peformance to high quality, then closed and re-opened indesign, the setting would stick.

    Now, on the latest version, I have to set it to high quality each time I open a document, which is stupid considering probably 95% of user's computers can handle high quality mode these days. This is so much more basic than dealing with proxies in Premiere which is not on by default... It really should be set to high by default. It's really annoying to have to go…

  9. Search entire volume for missing picture / links

    Search entire volume for missing picture / links connection as its enormously laborious to search each with windows explorer, then copy to dedicated folder then point Indesign to this dedicated folder.
    Why isn't it possible to point Indesign to a entire volume, let Indesign search for all missing links and by "packing" all files are copied to the "links"-folder. Would be mega-comfortable !!!

  10. We need a way to convert PagerMaker files to ID files

    I know that I am not the only person, that there are many of us, who were loyal Pagemaker users for many years and now have a big archive of PM files. Adobe pages says that they can be opened with ID CS6, but that doesn't work for me, my CS6 gives me a message that I need a plug-in, but that plug-in isn't available anywhere. I know I'm not the only person who has asked for a plug-in to convert PM files. Please do something about this. Adobe is really failing us.

  12. Support ID Books!

    As a freelancer corralling multiple ID files, many which share Styles, Parent Pages and other elements, or need to output in a certain order as a combined PDF, I have long used the Book function in ID and MANY OF MY CLIENTS DO AS WELL. This feature of InDesign is still bare bones, undeveloped and buggy. It needs attention from developers! Here are my wishes for Adobe InDesign Books:

    1) The Book Panel is still bare bones. Simply give it your attention.

    2) I want all the fly-out menu options for a book to be available with a secondary click/contextual…

  13. spell check

    Spell check in Indesign is not fit for purpose in its current state, it is slow and clunky and gives no indication of where you are when checking a long document, could it not give a list of words like links panel that you can click to go to? At least implement some sort of progress bar and indication of how man words are incorrect/need reviewing. The forwards and backwards button do not help in any way - i'm sure the reason you need the change direction is only because its so slow and clunky that it goes past a…

  16. Just like........actually do *something* to improve InDesign??

    Many popular, highly voted Indesign feature requests—even some that you've responded to—have just been sitting here languishing for yearS...literally yearS. Would it be possible to do something? Like... just do something to improve the development of the program we all rely on for our careers? Thanks<3

  17. Automatic page shuffling on books (indb) should be opt-in

    InDesign automatically changes numbering of files listed on a indb book.
    That's handy but may easily lead to disasters and should be an opt-in

    Sometimes I only create indb books when I'm near to finish a book. Each file is already numbered correctly and chapters begin on even pages.

    If I'm adding files to my indb one by one and unknowingly skip one of them, InDesign automatically changes page numbering on my files. The problem is that InDesign will also shuffle pages and save files as soon as I add them to my indb.

    On simple text books, that doesn't…

  18. Tool for sustainable Design

    Hello dear Adobe team,

    At the moment there is a lot of talk about environmental problems and sustainability. Responsible use is particularly important when it comes to the use of finite and regenerative resources.

    The AGD has developed a charter for sustainability for this purpose. "Designers are largely responsible for
    how our world is shaped. Design shapes, design is a role model and creates
    new awareness. Design consumes resources - sometimes more,
    sometimes less. The sustainable use of natural resources,
    with the environment and with the people who have remained in this world for generations
    should be able to live,…

  20. Live captions with artboard names

    We create a lot of print files for clients in illustrator and proof them in InDesign. It would be great if we could import live captions for the artboard names of Illustrator files to save us having to type these out every time.
