  1. Preflight to list Font type used in file.

    Please make InDesign Preflight list the type of font missing (Adobe font, ttf, otf). We are a Prepress company and when preflighting jobs, we flag to the customer that a font is missing, but is available in Adobe Fonts. If we just activate the Adobe font, it could be the wrong type. A lot of the times the client has forgotten to send the font (otf, ttf).

    An example of this is Adobe Caslon Pro Italic. My file is using the otf type, but InDesign is telling me it is available on Adobe Fonts. If I just activated the Adobe…

  2. Open PDF in INDD

    It is utterly nonsensical that PDFs can be opened and edited in numerous apps, in particular Affinity Publisher, while InDesign cannot. Even Illustrator can do it (with various limitations).

    If Affinity and Markzware and so so many others can manage it - and reliably and accurately manage it - it's farcical that InDesign can't.

  3. Search QR Codes when Finding/Replacing

    I'm not sure if this is categorized correctly, but it would be nice if we are searching to fix text in a document that it also search and replace text that is used in QR codes so they don't get missed and are more easily fixed.

  4. Better text variables

    Text variables are so... basic at the moment.

    Can it get some love like GREPs search has? Unbelievable that you can't pull the first page or section titles... but how about some simple math operations in there too and combine them with GREP operations? Would be hugely useful to have some dynamic tools like this added to make on page information update in response to layout changes.

  5. Page number ranges in TOC

    Table of contents don't have the ability to add page ranges.

    So the contents look like this:

    Section A . . . . . . . 1

    Section B . . . . . . . 5

    Section C . . . . . . . 9

    When they should look like this:

    Section A . . . . . . . 1-4

    Section B . . . . . . . 5-8

    Section C . . . . . . . 9

    All this needs to be implemented is to have the second number be one page less than…

  6. Launch Art

    Hello everyone. I don't actually have an issue, but rather a curious question:

    Why have all of the InDesign launch images been illustrations, when InDesign is a page layout app?

    I'd love to see some cool magazine covers/interiors, or book or package design! Wouldn't that be more appropriate?

    Just sayin' 🙂

  9. Multipaste

    There's a plug in called Multipaste where when you copy an object and go to edit, an additonal option is 'Multipaste'.

    This allows you to quickly paste the same object in the same place on a selection of pages that you specify.

    This doesn't work anymore, so it would be great if it were a feature of ID.

    I know you can put something on master page, but this doesn't work for the pasteboard, and you then have to go through each page and command click to make it editable.

    Sometimes I just want to paste exactly the same object…

  10. command+s issue

    Command+s does the same thing as command+shift+s when saving files that were created in an older version of indd. It creates a dialogue box and a "are you sure you want to overwrite"

    This is a useless (expected, i have been told by support) behavior that only slows things down when revising large amounts of files.

    Its because it updates the file to run smoothly, but who would then not want to save it into the updated version? command+s should just overwrite/create the new version file automatically. If need be there could be a warning dialogue the first time with…

  13. UI Keep Options dialog (and Keep Options in Paragraph Styles)

    Can you please change the layout of the Keep Options Dialog Box so that it is clearer for end users? Attached you find a proposal from my part.
    The differences are:
    • More space between "Keep with Previous" and "Keep with Next" + added a line in between them.

    • Keep with Previous and Keep with Next. In the original it seems like you have to check the first (Keep with Previous) and to use the second (Keep with Next).

    • Indetation of the radio buttons under "Keep Lines Together" so that it is obvious that they are both part…

  14. Load Swatches - Add an option to overwrite existing same name swatches

    Load Swatches - Add an option to overwrite existing same name swatches, rather than simply renaming the incoming ones. Or an option to rename the existing swatches instead. It amounts to the same thing and would have saved a bit of time on a job I just did.

    Why is this text field so small?

  15. Allow Pages to be named and exported with names - like photoshop artboards

    Where the pages are numbered in the pages panel, please could you allow them to be named and exported with those names - in the same way the Photoshop allows with artboards?

    This would save so much time for working on projects that have 100s of pages that all need specific names. I would need this in InDesign as the ability to relink images is a super useful feature for my projects.

    Thanks!

    윈도우 11, 한글 인디자인 18.0 x64 버전 사용하고 있습니다.
    한글을 입력하는 동안 문자가 완성되기 전에는 화면 좌측 상단에 입력된 내용이 표시되고 인디자인에서 작업하는 곳(입력하고 있는 곳)에는 문자가 완성된 후에 표시됩니다. 문자가 완성되기 전에도 문자의 입력 모양이 인디자인 작업 화면에 표시가 되어야 합니다.
    해결 방법을 바랍니다.

  18. Cell values can be pasted without formatting

    When pasting the cells of a table into a cell field in a different format, only the values should be pasted without formatting. Just like pasting copied text without formatting.

  19. Rule above, Role below: Width columne except text

    Please make it possible to create a line below (paragraph rules) that is as long as the column, but the text is not underlined.

    This would make it easy to create form fields

  20. please let us change default layer colors

    I would like to be able to change the default layer colors. I don't like that there are 2 shades of blue before other color options are being used. I know yellow was removed as a default layer color, but I didn't mind the yellow. So why not have us choose our own colors?
