  1. Media Panel is missing all playback settings for MP4 files in InDesign 2020

    CC 2020 is missing all its control settings for playing MP4 files in an interactive pdf. Until this year's upgrade you had multiple options on what Controller Functions appeared when playing/displaying MP4's in an Interactive PDF document.

  2. Add full text markup options to document review (online version)

    When sending a document for review through CC online, my reviewers have very limited edit/markup options (add comment, draw, add pin). Can you add all the text markup options available in the "Comment" tool of the desktop version of Acrobat Pro? For example, insert text, add note to replace text, strikethrough, callout boxes, etc. This is valuable to me because it is much easier to read/understand the edits if they're clear text edits, not just comments in a box. Thank you!

  4. Changing the Appearance in Properties Panel

    In Properties Panel under "Appearance," there's a box with a "T" in it. Only when you click the box do "Color", Swatches" and "Gradient" appear. It would make more sense to have them on the right side of "Fill" so that they are visible.

  5. Font retirement notifications in app

    Really need to start giving us more warning about fonts being retired from fonts.adobe.com. Only having those notifications live on the website is useless - it should be optionally flagged whenever you open a document that's going to be affected.

    I mean, ideally, sign generous enough long term deals that they don't disappear off the platform and induce no end of headaches but at least warn us in context!

  6. Share for review—interactive documents

    Loving the new Share for Review feature, but how about the ability to markup documents with interactivity. Currently, all the buttons, rollovers, etc. disappear when using this feature—which implies it's just a baked-in version of adobe DC's commenting feature for static PDF documents.

  7. GPU acceleration in Windows PC

    Hi! Why does GPU acceleration in InDesign only work on MAC? I have an extremely powerful Windows PC with next-generation Nvidia Quadro video card, and you just forgot about Windows PC users. Can't do like Ilustrator? Can't use GPU processing intelligence in InDesign? I work with huge two- and one-column footnote files with lots of AI and PSD images. But the lack of GPU acceleration is frustrating. Thank you!

  8. Add "Save Settings" in Preferences

    If I want to adjust the settings in 𝐏𝐫𝐞𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐬 – or anything else – permanently, I need to close all my files. This system is extremely frustrating to me. It would be a lot more convenient for there to be an option at the bottom of each of the 𝐏𝐫𝐞𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐬 that would look like this:

    ● 𝐒𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐒𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬
    🗹 Only for this document | ☐ New documents based on this template

    By default, the box 𝐎𝐧𝐥𝐲 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐝𝐨𝐜𝐮𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 would be checked. Once you click 🗹 𝐍𝐞𝐰 𝐝𝐨𝐜𝐮𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 𝐛𝐚𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐞, it will be like that for future documents!…

  10. Print Booklet needs to support booklets with more than 4-up, e.g., up to 6-up

    Print Booklet needs to support booklets with more than 4-up, e.g., up to 6-up.
    The team I am part of produces many z-fold documents in excess of 4-up, often 5-up or 6-up. We need the functionality in Print Booklet to support that. The existing maximum 4-up just isn't enough/

  12. GPU Support Indesign Windows 10 is urgently needed!

    Why is GPU Support for Windows/Indesign not already running yet?
    Other vendors have still good and fast running...
    Plaes give soon a feedback when we can start with GPU Power in Indesign on Windows Systems...
    Otherwise the way leads to other products, which support GPU (for ex. NVidia Quad) under Windows 10...
    It is no option for us to use old MACs ;-)

  13. FORM - COMB, order, styles

    Primarily, for me, is the painstaking task of setting "comb of" characters, and even worse setting the right tab order.

    Panel for setting tab order in InDesign, under Object>Interactive is horrible. It is too small, height-wise, and does not function well all the time. Often it happens to "jump". I get nr. 47 after 46, but it jumps before 46.

    I sometimes have over 70 form fields to sort on a single page and it is taking too much time and patience to set it right.

    If you could work on that tab order panel, make it larger, and give…

  14. Export XMP metadata with exported JPG and PNG images

    Currently, when you select a single placed image, and choose File > Export and export the selection as a JPG or PNG, any metadata that is present in the image (keywords, description, etc) does not appear in the exported image.

    What I would like is that if a single image is selected to export, that InDesign would retain all the XMP metadata (or at least the keywords) applied to the image when the image is exported.

    The reason this would be useful is that sometimes users will crop and scale an image in InDesign, and then want to export the…

  16. Export JPEGs with Text/Art optimized export settings

    I consistently use InDesign to develop static mobile and web banner and export them as JPEG or PNG. Currently I feel that the quality of the export is not as good as an export from Photoshop or Illustrator - there is no ability to prioritize the text or artwork like the two software can. Could this be added in InDesign please, maybe even mimic the save-for-web functionality from Photoshop/Illustrator.

  17. Detect metric system and offer A4, millimeters

    It's pretty simple to detect the user country via the OS, so it would be very handy to start indesign with A4 and millimeter units, instead of letter and inches.

    Currently, having a fresh install of inDesign, the default page size is letter. To start a new document with A4 is cumbersome. Not good at all, considering that the biggest part of the world uses the metric system and A-sized pages.

    Forcing imperial units has no benefits at all, it only annoys the users outside US and Canada.

  18. Really need InDesign for iPad Pro!

    I know SO many people switching out of Adobe because InDesign is not on the iPad (Pro). InDesign is so essential and it’s a shame that there’s no motion to create an iPad version like we have now for PhotoShop. Please Adobe, listen to this. It’s mutually beneficial.
