  1. Larger thumbnails in the Page Pallet

    I would like to see the thumbnails in the InDesign Page Pallet larger so that components of the page are easily recognizable. Currently the Jumbo thumbnail size is not sufficient. Perhaps a slider feature similar to 'View Options' in Apple Finder?

  2. Mark layers as visible in the exported PDF but non-printing from within InDesign export settings

    PDFs have the ability to mark layers as non-printing, so that they appear visible on the screen but don't print to hard copy. I'm using this capability to add a light raster background to all pages of a workbook for students, which adds a bit of warm color to the on-screen viewing experience, but I don't want this background to use up all their toner if they decide to print the pages. Similarly, the entire workbook has page numbers, but the worksheets should print without the page numbers, because they're not relevant outside the context of the book.

  3. Add brackets and arcs as underline options

    To signal a contraction of a word, or a relation between two words, it would be helpful to have brackets and arcs (like slurs in a musical sheet) as underline options. This would simplify the edition of dictionaries and musical text.
    See the examples attached.

  4. Request of to Index "Index entry", "page reference" and "Yomi" CSV export Feature.(【要望】索引の「項目」「ページ番号」「読み」のCSV書き出し)

    I hope to Index "Index entry", "page reference" and "Yomi" CSV export Feature.
    Currently, the Japanese version does not sort as expected and the indexing function is difficult to use.
    It would also reduce the difficulty of indexing in multi-person operations.

    索引の「項目」「ページ番号」「読み」をCSVで書き出せるようにして欲しい。
    現状、日本語版はソートが期待通りいかず、索引機能が使いづらいものとなっている。
    また、複数人の作業における索引作成の困難も軽減してくれると思われる。

  6. Ability to change text from a dialog box like Corel Draw

    I use Corel Draw from time to time and when I need to edit a string of text it lets me edit it from a dialog box instead of only on the page so I do not have to zoom up on any text strings to edit them. Can this be done for InDesign and Illustrator as well.

  7. Hidden pages alert

    PLEASE add an alert on a PDF export if pages are hidden. For many projects, we cannot risk have pages hidden in the final PDF (i.e., proposals).

  8. Copy text from the Indesign Review panel, into my text in my Indesign file.

    I work a lot with the review links, and I can copy text from the webbrowser review panel; but not from the review panel in Indesign itself. Which makes that If I need to copy a piece of text; written by my reviewers, to adjust in the copy of my file, I have to go to the web version of the link, copy there, go back to ID, find the piece of copy I want to adjust and paste it in there. Very time consuming work around.

    Can this be fixed?

  9. Apply parent pages based on text

    I would like the ability to force a page to use a Parent Page based on the content of that page.

    For example, a long document might have several chapters and the chapter title or chapter number uses a specific paragraph style. That style could include an attribute to apply a specific Parent Page to the page the text appears on, allowing the designer to automatically select the chapter start parent where appropriate. As the text reflows the parent would be removed or reapplied as the text moves from page to page.

    Sometimes a paragraph might span a page break,…

  10. Right Click on object -> Move/Copy it to any Layer

    Sometimes when you want to move or copy an object from one layer to another, it can become a bit cumbersome if you're working with a lot of layers and those layers themselves have a lot of files.

    So my suggestion is to add a menu shortcut when you right click on any object to move that object to any available layer.

    See crude example below.

    Thank you.

  11. Make the CC Library popup notes legible

    Using CC Libraries in InDesign 2022, 2023+ has been very helpful. However, I find that the notes added to the object are illegible. Doesn't matter what color I make the interface or which monitor or monitor resolution I set, when I hoover my mouse over the library object the pop out note text is a light grey on a grey background and difficult to read.

    Can we had some user level adjustment so those library items can be zoomed or to change them so the text is black with a white background while we are hovering over them?

    Thank you.

  12. Create a text variable window to see and edit values faster

    Right now you have to open each variable independently. Then if you want to change the value you have to save and exit each variable. Also you have to open each variable to see the value.

    Please create a Text Variable Window with two columns. One for the Name the other for the value. This way we can see the variable and edit the variable. Add the add icon, and add duplicate variable icon.

  15. Footnote Improvement: Footnotes do not always get consecutive numbers. Footnotes within quoted material retain their original numbers.

    This post is similar to "Custom numbered footnotes." Footnote Improvement: Footnotes do not always get consecutive numbers. Footnotes within quoted material retain their original numbers. To allow this, all Adobe needs to do is to create a second kind of footnote, the non-sequential footnote. The existing footnote style has a counter that increments by 1 every time the user inserts a footnote. Create a non-sequential footnote style that requires the user to enter the desired footnote number, and do not let that footnote increment the counter in the existing, sequential footnote style. Then the user can select either footnote style,…

  16. Quick Key for increaseing space between paragraphs.

    A quick key for increasing space between paragraphs would make it quicker to explore and establish paragraph styles. It would be great if there were quick keys to adjust the spacing around the first and last line too, but the space between paragraphs seems more important, personally speaking.

    How about Command + Option + Shift + up/down Arrow Keys so it's similar to the quick key to increase/decrease leading.

  17. Collaborative Work + Multiple Users Opening the Same File Simultaneously

    We need a collaborative environment inside InDesign. We use InD for Proposals and document repositories. We have manually created a library of graphics and text that we use as standard content across multiple documents. We have a team that is constantly asking for access to the file. The lack of version history reverting and tracking makes this a nightmare on top of the fact that only one person can have the file open at a time. Then, you open it, and on PC it says its a read-only file so you have to save-as a new file name. Document integrity…

  18. Toggle "Preview" ON by default

    I'd like to see the effect of what I'm doing e.g. in the Paragraph panel by default. Can't find this in the application or on Google. This could easily be an option in the Preferences.

  19. Links Panel: Show Exact Matches only

    When re-linking files, add an option to show "Exact matches only". Adobe Premiere has this. So when you're looking for the file you're re-linking, all files are greyed out except for the one that matches your file name.

    Find the Premiere equivalent in German attached!
