  1. Make Typekit fonts usable offline outside of Cloud app, just check activation sometimes

    It's annoying that I have to close the applications (Illustrator, inDesign, Photoshop) since the Typekit fonts aren't available if I open them before the Cloud application is up and running. I get to work and open the programs right away and forget to make sure the Cloud app is already open. Forcing me to close all 3 and reopen all 3, waste of time..

    Seria ideal ter uma opção no INDD.
    Ao gerar PDF poderíamos escolher ou já deixar setado em curvas ou não...

    Ou seja gerar pdf em curvas... Seria o máximo!

  3. Make gradients constant within the same table.

    Gradients within table cells change direction when the rows are adjusted. If the columns are adjusted the gradients stay the same, why not the rows? It's extremely timely having to constantly fix the gradients within the cells if I have to adjust the rows in any way. The gold row gradient at the top is correct but after adding a row to the grid I have to manually manipulate each cell to get the gradient right.

  4. fix the application frame bug on the mac that cause panels not to appear

    I generally do not have my application frame turned on. I know this is a PC thing, but just not natural on a Mac. Often if I donʻt have application frame turned on, many of the panels like layers simply wonʻt display no matter what I do. This seems like a bug to me.

    Also there is a bug where the item dot in a layer is not visible so you canʻt move an item easily to another layer. You have to rebuild preferences to get the dot to show again. Again another bug Adobe should be fixing before addin…

  6. Character style in brush form so I can just set it and highlight parts of text and the brush does the rest.

  7. Ability to set Style Override Highlighter as "on" or "off" in preferences

    Currently the Style Override Highlighter [+] in the various styles panels functions as a toggle on a per app basis, not as an "on" or "off" preference setting. This means it can't be set on a document by document basis, as enabling it will actually toggle the setting to "off" if a user has the setting switched "on" in their copy of InDesign.

    Would greatly appreciate the ability to set this as a normal InDesign preference - ie one that can be set at application/document level, the same as almost every other setting in the program.

  8. Remove (or give option to remove) font information from Contextual Properties style dropdown

    The font name/weight/size information now included in the properties dropdown adds a lot of visual clutter without being particularly useful for finding desired styles.

    For example, in a typical document I have multiple styles that all use the same font name/weight/size, but differ greatly in other settings-- some are bullets, some have an inset, some have specific nested styles, etc etc. THAT'S what's important about them, not the fact that they share a font name/weight/size.

    In addition, because the style name and the style attributes are shown in the same font size/weight in the menu, it's harder to scan down…

  9. Autocomplete style names typed into styles dropdown in properties window

    The new contextual properties window would be much handier if the dropdown window had an autocomplete ability similar to what's currently available in the Quick Apply window. The current implementation doesn't save any time, as you still have to navigate through the various options to find the one you want-- something I find more challenging to do thanks to the additional clutter of the font name/weight/point size being included in the dropdown.

  10. measurements to page and or items

    we would like to have dynamic measurements that show in the Slug the sizes of the total page. and also that it shows the measurements from the fold line to fold line.

    This is good for all of us who make package designs in Indesign. or giving an exact position of items from each other.

  12. EPUB Interactivity Window resize

    This window is defaulted to very small and cannot be resized, making it impossible to test small buttons.

  13. Number & nombre

    Hey Guys, you should'nt translate NUMBER by NUMÉRO in French for exemple NUMBER of column in menu Pages → Margins and Columns ) but by NOMBRE. NOMBRE is the right word in this case.

    Thank you so much.

    Regards

    Ben

  14. Allow for social media glyphs to behave as characters in hyphenation and linebreaks

    With social media references in almost every document, InDesign seems to break social media handles awkwardly , notably with the @-sign and the #-sign. For example, a sentence that includes a Twitter handle will oftentimes break between the @ and the actual handle name:

    blah blah blah blah blah lorem ipsum blah blah send us a tweet now! @
    adobeindesign is our name.

    Same thing with hashtags.

  15. Change

    I would like to draw the Chapter Title in a text variable from the File Info rather than trying to use the First on page/last on Page and setting a Paragraph style. It would be much faster, easier and more reliable to let us grab a field from File Info. I can get the Chapter File to update but then it won't appear in the TOC and the work arounds show that the software simply does not want to work the way one would expect. I work in a variety of other software packages and they ALL allow us to…

  16. Noms de domaines et adresses IP à exclure

    Chaque fois que je souhaite publier un document online, j'ai une error#22.
    Mon équipe technique a testé de nombreuses pistes, mais sans succès.

    Pourriez-vous nous communiquer la liste des noms de domaine et adresses IP à exclure de nos analyses de sécurité pour publication d'un document Indesign ?

    Merci d'avance.
    Cordialement,
    Françoise

  18. Copy Artboard Size across CC apps

    I do this a lot: I have a diecut in Illustrator and need to create the layout in InDesign. I have a little OCD (like most DTP/Artworkers :)) ) so I create the diecut in Illustrator and then fit the artboard size to the whole art. When I start creating the layout in InDesign, I create the document using the same page size as the Illustrator file. And I do this several times a day. :)

    It would be great to have an option/button in Artboard Tool (Illustrator) / Page Tool (InDesign) to copy the size and be able to…

  19. Copying Links to folder fails

    Oftentimes, when I try to copy links to a folder, it fails. No explanation as to why. It's happened dozens of times. Occasionally, it works. Usually not, though.

    I am running InDesign 13.1 on Mac OS 10.13.6

  20. Retained overwrites

    While doing heavy make-up of book texts I often need to get in a line or to space out a line. Doing this without having countless paragraph overrides (with the danger that by clicking "clear override" or applying a script everything would be lost) the only possibility so far is to make numerous paragraph copies, e.g., "body", "body+5", "body+10", "body-5" etc.
    A possible solution could be to have the paragraph style definition with some kind of "ranges", maybe "Tracking: 0 - +30" with a default value "0". And the actual value could be selected in a panel. Hopefully someone has…
