  1. 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…

  2. 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).

  3. Improve Preflight

    Isn’t it about time for an update and some enhancements to this great feature? Some suggestions:


    1. Change the default Preflight Profile to something realistic for quality printing. The absence of warnings is misleading, making people think that everything is fine.

    2. Divide the check for “Protected fonts” into two categories: 1. Fonts which do not allow embedding in PDF, 2. Activated Adobe fonts (the existing behaviour of flagging Adobe fonts as “not allowed” causes a lot of confusion)

    3. Change the wording “Transparency not allowed” to just “Transparency”
      Transparency is rarely a problem nowadays, though it is still good to check whether…

  4. Feature to manage plug ins?

    I am using version 16.2 and I cannot find any way to remove a dead plug-in that a colleague left attached to a template.

  5. Does Boot Camp Work on the M1 Macs?

    Sadly, the short answer is no. It’s probably not what fans of the M1 chip want to hear but because Apple switched away from the Intel models to Apple silicon and decided to kill the Boot Camp assistant, the old way of running Windows on Macs is not possible.

    There is a bit of method to perceived madness here. To take on Intel and create their own chip, Apple decided to go with the ARM chip instead of the Intel-created x86 architecture. It has been a while since Apple introduced ARM chips to power their phone and tablet range so…

  8. Indesign Lite, but different to the already suggested

    Indesign comes with a lot of features you never use. Features like the absolutely annoying and nasty Creative Cloud and its client, the even nastier CCX, the constant updates which lose compatibility between almost every next version and the previous one, the CC library which doesn't work at all (it should host any kind of object, but it doesn't), InCopy. Remove all that and let us just use what we need.

  10. Import PDF comments: Acrobat 'Set Status' options; keep Acrobat file in sync.

    Marking comments as resolved/unresolved in InDesign is not comprehensive enough: the full options available in Acrobat need to be available in InDesign. Also, the source PDF file needs to be updated to reflect what has been done in InDesign.


    1. Rather than just 'Resolve', InDesign needs to show the full 'Set Status' menu from Acrobat.

    2. Once the full 'Set Status' menu is in place, marking comments as 'Completed', etc., in InDesign needs to be reflected in the source commented PDF file so it is fully in sync.

  12. Magic Wand Tool

    Magic Wand Tool is necessary for InDesign to select not only objects but this should also work according to InDesign to select the same fonts, and Styles of Objects, Paragraphs, Characters, and Tables, etc.
    Magic Wand would be beneficial for the Selection of Fonts and their Size and Styles, just we will have to check/turn on the options according to required selections on the page, spread, or document, etc.

  13. In the PDF comment window, a button to delete all resolved comments

    In the PDF comment window, a button to delete all resolved comments would be useful, keeping comments that have not yet been resolved.

    When it gets too much comment the computer is very slow. And the tool for importing comments is very useful in my case.

    Unfortunately, publishers here in Brazil make many amendments to the diagrammed files.

  14. Home page (InDesign, Photoshop, etc.)

    Please add keyboard ability to CLOSE the big honkin home pages. When I close a document and want to be in my Finder looking for the next thing, I have to mouse up and click on the red CLOSE button at upper left of the home screen to remove it from view. Yes, it's not a huge thing, but a Cmd-W there (the universal CLOSE command on the keyboard) would be much appreciated for workflow.

  18. Combo box and list box csv import

    Hello, I was wondering if you all could make a system for Excel or CSV data to be imported into interactive elements like combo boxes and list boxes. Its a real pain to manually input an array of items and also not have the ability to edit them in their place. The current process requires deleting an element in the list, and retyping it and then manually type in alot of options. Imagine if having to make a combo box that included all 50 states.

  20. Embed file option while placing the image in the page

    Many-a-times after placing a Image, we need to Embed that as we don't want that to stay connected to the source.
    That's why what we want is that before placing a Image, there should be a Link/Embed Option as there is in Illustrator so that I do not have to manually go to Links Panel and Embed it from there for every single Image. It will faster the work process
