  1. 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).

  2. Import formatting from PDF comments

    InDesign should apply what ever it recives from the PDF. The formating options for the comments are pretty limited – Bold, Italic, Underline, ...

    If I accept a comment that has italic characters, the formatted text would be [italic].

    If I accept a comment that has bold characters, the formatted text would be [bold].

    If I accept a comment that has bold italic characters, the formatted text would be [bold italic].

    If I am using a font that does not have an Italic weight (Maybe it uses Regualre Italic), the text would just recive the standart missing font warning (The…

  3. 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

  4. 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.

    Navigation Points have been re-introduced in the Media panel. This feature is available in the latest release of InDesign (version 16.0). Please use this release to use Navigation Points for Video/Audio files.

    However, the Controller options will not be available. As communicated earlier, all options (Controller options being one of them) related to Flash/Flash player have been removed from InDesign as Flash Player is now being EOL’d (End of Life).

  5. Open location from 'Recent files' in explorer or bridge

    I normally save my exports to somewhere very close to the INDD file. Would love to be able to open a bridge or explorer window to the location of the files listed in 'Recent files' (the home screen when nothing is open).

  9. 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…

  10. Gif Export directly from Indesign

    Why of why in 2021 can't I export a multi page document from Indesign to an animated gif format - even just rudimentary controls to allow a basic slideshow gif with no transitions would be better than having to faff about in photoshop!

  11. File Handling selecting recents..

    File handling selectively delete recents.
    It would be great if you could selectively delete recent files by right clicking on them with options rename, delete, copy, replace. PDF expert by readdle is has a great way for doing this and is very helpful and fast for filing docs.

  12. Why is accessibility not one of the Idea categories on this site?

    Accessibility is a very important and specific area. It needs its own entry on the list of idea topics on both the request and bug report forums.

  13. Mywifiext

    MyWifiext is an official online address for setting up and configuring a Netgear Wi-Fi range extender. Also, it is one of the easiest and simplest ways to setup the range extender. Furthermore, Mywifiext allows the user to update the extender’s settings, configure, and install the range extender, among other things. Therefore, the users looking for ways to accomplish the Netgear Extender setup procedure should visit the official website, i.e., “Mywifiext.”

  14. Export to a Word/.doc file

    Would like to be able to export a project to Word. Which typically exporting to PDF is fine, there are some clients that require us to send them Word/.doc file. I've been exporting to PDF and from there exporting to Word, but that means much of the formatting is lost.

  15. Embed IDML data into INDD files for permanent single-file offline backwards compatibility

    Just embed IDML data into every INDD, at least optionally. A separate IDML file requires having foreseen the need for backwards compatibility, making sure it is up to date each time the INDD is changed, or resorting to server-side conversion, all of which are a nuisance and unnecessary.

    An IDML’s file size is usually anemic when compared to its INDD counterpart, so that is a non-issue.

    Even Photoshop asks you whether you want PSD files to be backwards compatible.

    Please make live captions work also on anchored images! And when I wait for that - tell us that it is impossible now, beceause I have tried several hours to understand why live captions don't work in my document with anchored images. When I read the user handbooks it doesn't tell me!!!!

  18. PDF comments - Option to remove all resolved comments at once

    Option to remove all resolved comments at once. An option to remove all resolved comments in the comment window would be very interesting, because indesign has a performance issue with too much comment.

  19. Make it faster!

    I have 16GB of memory on my graphics card and 128 in my computer, but Indesign only utilises 2GB & 16GB respectively.

    I regularly create multi-page documents that need complex vectors, style sheets, table of contents, etc which I cannot create in Illustrator and would slow me down even more if I had to.

    I'm also using a 10-core 3.6Ghz i9 processor. I don't know how many cores InDesign uses, but I would like to know if it utilises all of my processor cores. If it doesn't, can you make it do so please.

  20. Worksharing across multiple users

    Being able to have multiple people working in the same file at once similar to how Autodesk Revit is formatted - there is one "central" file and each user has a "local" file that they work on and every time they save it saves back to the "central" as one master file. There is also a safe guard against two people doing the same work where if two users were on the same page, the second person to try an edit the same object would see an error message telling them that someone else owns that item and in order…
