  3. set width of a real gap between columns in a table

    Setting a column/cell stroke to "paper" does not make a real gap between columns, when the table is on a colored background.

    Please add a "gap width between columns" to your table/cell formatting.

  4. Indesign should be fully compatible with Powerpoint

    Clients are demanding more and more presentations made on Powerpoint than reports made in Indesign. Sometimes, even reports made in Powerpoint. Designers like me are spending much more time nowadays on Powerpoint than Indesign.

    Adobe will lose those designers.

    Indesign must be fully compatible with PowerPoint.

  5. Add "insert text at cursor" to Review tools

    Share for Review is great - however why was the "insert text" tool left out of the review tools? I do reviews every day and the 3 most important tools are "delete text", "replace text" and "insert text at cursor" - to know exactly where added text should go. It's part of the PDF commenting tools since forever - why was it left out of this Review function? Please add it, we can't offer this solution to our stakeholders without it.

  6. Options to individualize QR Codes

    It would be nice to have some features to individualize QR-Codes.
    For example to put a grafphic/trademark in the middle, rounding the edges, dots instead of squares... There could be many Options.
    "qrcode-monkey" has some good options to individualize QR Codes.

  7. I need in InDesign these tools: 1. in the «Path» I need «Outline Stroke 2. “Perespective” tool 3. the new “Generate” like what in Illustrat

    I do almost all design and drawings in the InDesign program, so I found these tools in Photoshop and Illustrator. It is nice and ok for me not to leave InDesign and do all the things I need for printing and layout.

    I am using InDesign Eastern language. (The Generating, is still not in the Eastern Version!!).

  8. Add space before text on the first line in a text box

    For each new chapter in a book, we like to add space before the chapter title, but need to either modify the size of the text box (dragging the top down), or we need to add a paragraph break to act as a work-around to create space before the first line of text.

    It'd be great if InDesign had a feature to allow added space before the first line.

  9. Reposition feedback-box in shared Indesign document

    It would be useful if you could change the position of the feedback box so that you could make the order logical. Now sometimes the comments are not in the reading order and that makes it unclear.

  10. Emoji for Print: Update EmojiOne Color and Support COLR Fonts

    I work for a large book publisher and more and more books (especially YA) include a lot of emoji. To the point that having to replace all emoji with art is a tedious process. For workflow efficiency and for accessibility issues, we utilize emoji fonts and convert them to outline, then color correct for print (grayscale or CMYK). That way we can support diverse emoji and preserve the unicode values so that characters are maintained as manuscripts go from Word to InDesign.

    Right now, emoji fonts that support shading and skin tone/hair color options come in two flavors--OpenType SVG and…

  11. Google search in Indesign

    Hi!

    I want to be able to make a google-search from within an indesign-article/-text, by marking a word/phrase, right click and end up in the web browser with a search result based on my marking in Indesign. That couldn’t be to difficult to script, but a huge help.

    All the best!

  12. Text Variables should support super/sub script

    Text variables should support incidental superscript and subscript. Currently, even with using GREP in the paragraph style which defines the super- or sub-script and placing on a master page, the text variable does not support these formats in actual placement on document pages. Very elementary feature that should be supported.

  13. Publish Online & Right-Click

    I frequently use the feature in InDesign that allows direct online export. However, as an artist and creator, I find it inappropriate that anyone can easily right-click on the artwork and save it as an image. For example, Google Drive doesn't allow viewers to do that. Can InDesign implement a similar restriction?

    Password protection isn't good enough; sometimes it doesn't work, and we need to make editors' lives easier. I want full control over my images and don't want anyone to save my images to their desktop so easily. It's true that many images are online, but not all of…

  15. Regarding the behavior of Adobe app UI in a multiple-screen case

    The scenario: Company given laptop usage with Adobe apps. Using multiple monitors at workplace. Also the same while working from home.

    Problem: The UI (floating windows, toolbox, etc.,) keep spreading out in different monitors or screens, which is annoying to to settle every time as the preferred monitor keeps changing. Please see attached image (UI spread cross monitors.jpg)

    Proposed solution: I understand that it might be difficult for app to trace the monitor I am using. At least there should be a possibility to 're-arrange all UI in one monitor' when I use 'Workplace' menu and choose my favorite workplace…

  16. Grid view when zoomed out

    Please allow pages to move into a grid view when zooming out. This would allow for page layout artists to look at the "big picture" view all at once without the endless scrolling. Attaching two pictures, one is what indesign looks like now, the second is what it looks like in Microsoft Word which is a MUCH more helpful view. If this is already available, please let me know, I'd love to use this feature!

  17. Upsample Images on PDF Export

    DESCRIPTION:

    Indesign could offer the option of upsampling images to a specified PPI on PDF export. Rather than requiring the user to find each under-res image and manually destructively upsample each with a round-trip through Photoshop.

    Optimally, there could be a threshold setting below which an image resolution is too low. This could be either "effective" resolution PPI number threshold ("Upsample images with an effective placed resolution above 120ppi"), or a max scale percentage that would be needed to get the image up to the set output resolution ("Upsample images within 40% of target resolution." or "Upsample images by no…

  18. Enable the deletion of button rollover state once it's been created

    Once you've created a button AND applied a rollover state, you can't currently delete it. I know you can "hide" it, and I know you can convert the button back to an object, but I want the ability to delete the rollover state once it's been created. Similar to a multi-state object, it would be great if we can delete the rollover state (like you can do with individual states in an MSO).

  19. search

    Make the search bar visible when users press CMD+F (or windows alternative).

    At the moment, when you click to search text on a document that's shared for review, it seems like the search bar doesn't appear. But in reality it's hidden behind the comments panel. You have to close the comments/preview panels to see it.

    This causes a lot of "there's no search bar" comments from users, and we have to specifically tell them now when we share for review "it's hidden. Close this panel".

    The search function should always be visible when someone presses CMD+F.

  20. Put the Overset text warning directly at the beginning of the export file process

    When I want to export a PDF, InDesign kindly reminds me of overset text or missing links. However, I do not understand why this warning appears at the very end, after I have gone through the file location selection and PDF export settings. Obviously, I want to correct this error in 95% of cases. Instead, I have to cancel the export, then go through the entire process again. The file location, file name, and any PDF export settings I might have changed are lost, and I have to start all over again.
