  1. Spelling: "Ignore All" does not hold when reopening saved file

    Spelling: "Ignore All" for items one doesn't want to put in the user dictionary, like proper names, citation references, etc. These one-time decisions are not sustained after saving and closing the ID file and starting again opening it the next time. Once these decisions are made, they should be saved with the file save and the user should not have to keep redoing them.

  3. Make the 'next page' button in the bottom left have a drop down to toggle it between next page and next spread.

    When scrolling through a document now, the view jumps between let and right. It might be less disorientating to switch quickly through the spreads than jumping left and right.

  4. I'd like to see opacity in the options for Paragraph Shade

    Next to Tint I naturally looked for opacity, my thought was if I can change tint I can change opacity as well. Thanks.

  5. Add length property to Indesign DOM

    Please add a readonly length property to all shapes, paths and lines which contains the total length. This property should be accessible using scripting... This is already present in Illustrator ... https://forums.adobe.com/message/10130793#10130793

  6. Break Footnotes Marker

    If long footnotes breaks on two pages autoinsert some symbol on end of first part and some symbol on the beginning of the second part. Would also be nice to have the possibility to choose a glyph for these markers.

  7. GREP query to remove whitespace before sentence

    Along with a query for removing trailing whitespace, one is needed for preceding whitespace. The workaround of searching for ^p+space does not work in all instances, especially in tables.

  8. Image frames grow in height or width

    Similar to the options that we have for text boxes, Autosize to height, width, both etc, could we do the same for images and then use the fit to frame options to control how the text boxes grow.

    i.e you import and landscape image into a image holder, it is set to fit to height, but then the width grows or shrinks accordingly to fit the image. this can then effect text wrap.

  10. Make Table preview faster

    Complex tables are REALLY low to preview in InDesign. I have a table 45 rows by 7 columns, and if I nudge it, it takes 5 seconds to preview. Then I nudge again... another 5 seconds. This SLOW table preview has been happening on all kinds of documents, for years. Please speed it up.

  11. Delete unused-variables

    Unfortunately the UI- and the Handling of variables is quiet different to all other menues and function in InDesign. And so theres still no way to delete "unused" variables.

    While handling an document over several years - e.g. a typical product-catalog or price list - the variables-list grows from year to year as there are every year new products which need a variable. After some years it is not practical to have a list with 500 variables but only 100 are used.
    It would be very appreciated if the complete handling of variables could be like in all other menues.

  12. Previously saved versions of a document

    It would be very helpfull if InDesign stored a log of previously saved versions of one particualr document. For example, if I have worked on a file for multiple weeks and oversaved all of the changes that were made to the document, but then suddenly the client wanted to have some of the changes undone I could easily find the version where those changes hadn't been done. That would save the hassle of saving multiple documents or whole buch of additional pages inside the document.

  14. Create a more functional font menu please!

    Make the fonts menu more functional.

    Show larger font samples
    Let user see selected text or custom text as sample text (instead of just using "sample")
    Ability to sort between serif, san-serif, decorative, handwritten, etc. Even if this means user needs to create "tags" to organize their own font libraries.

    See the typekit website or any website that sells fonts. Do it like that.

  18. Limiting table row height limit

    Hi, I always encounter this in InDesign. The table row has height limit and would not allow me to adjust it further for longer contents. My workaround is to use shape made as a content holder. (see attached file)

  20. Add Mini-glyph panel and OpenType adornment in World Ready composer.

    Add Mini-glyph panel and OpenType adornment in World Ready composer. There is no raison that we can't use this features on Hebrew or Arabic. For me (and others) OpenType features in Hebrew fobts (glyphs alternates, Justification Alternates, stylic sets, etc...) And for me (and other) are much more needed in Hebrew that in Latin.
