  4. Cross-reference dialog: sortable picker / resizable window

    Every time I place a new cross-ref or edit a broken one, it opens that "Edit cross-ref" window, which is not resizable, where a lot of space is wasted and where the most import part, the list of headlines to pick from, is not the biggest part. Then I would select a paragraph style from that very small list on the left where some style names may even be wider than the list field. And when picking from the list on the right, it is not sorted aphabetically by default. Please put something we can click to sort. Imagine you…

  5. Video opasity

    Please make the opacity controls work on videos in Publish files.
    It works in indesign but as soon as you publish your video its gone :(.

    Right now there is an opacity slider that is not affecting the video, seems like a error.

  6. Co-creation: Allow multiple designers to work on the same InDesign document

    Often we have stringent deadlines to meet. Thus multiple designers work in parallel. It will be helpful if multiple designers can work on same file. Currently only 1 designer can work on the file at a time. This makes the process inefficient.

    Closed: Fixed  ·  Anonymous responded

    I understand the confusion and apologise for the same. Before we could get out the issues in a release we posted the workaround plugins for any users who were blocked due to the bugs.

    We have now send out an update to all InDesign users which has those bug fixes in them. Again sorry for the inconvenience.

    Regards

  8. Kerning Issues Between Text and Tabs

    A detail about kerning/tracking that seems to have slipped through the cracks: how text and tabs interact with each other in Indesign.

    I noticed this while doing fillable forms with underscores. The space after the type wildly varies in distance, and from what I can tell, there is no way to automatically or manually adjust it. I tried switching kerning between manual and optical, with no results. I tried manually adjusting the kerning, which doesn't affect it either. The spacing seems to be related to the length of the text.

    A visual example:
    Address____
    ZIP code _____

  9. Styles UI needs to keep up with the times

    Styles are implemented in InDesign since... well, for ever. The options and settings grew a lot over the years BUT it still looks and feels the same. Old and unflexible. There is a styles window with your collected styles and to edit those you have your Style Options window. Basically that´s it.

    Practically that means you have to open each style individually, make your changes individually (although you want equally changes), check if design and layout still works, edit each style... again... individually.

    Please find a way to improve working/handling styles e.g. for collective changes or simultaneously opening multiple Style…

  10. Import from web-based locations. Like Digital Asset Managers.

    It would be very beneficial for our workflow to be able to easily import images and other documents from web-based sources. For instance, we have all our images on a Digital Asset Manager (DAM), and would like to pull directly from that. That way, if the image is updated, we don't need to replace the files.

  11. Links panel: Place time

    In "Links panel" we already have the option to add or change the columns displaying usefull info about the linked object. Choosing "Place Date" is an option to show the date when the object was placed.
    Now... it would be neat if, in addition, the column could show the "time" as well.

  13. Select which PSD artboards are displayed when placed into InDesign (similar to Illustrator)

    When you place an illustrator file into InDesign, you can select which artboards you want to place. The same should be done with Photoshop artboards (instead of having to place the entire photoshop document).

  14. Have a 2 program package for CC

    Right now Adobe has an option to have Lightroom and Photoshop in a special photo CC package for $10. How about making it where you can choose any two programs? I don't need those two but I would easily upgrade may aging CS6 Indesign for a package like that.

  15. Better offline interactive products.

    More and more product needs to be interactive.
    Indesign allows us to make beautiful interactive pdf's. But there's a problem, the i-pdf doesn't work on all pdf-viewers and pre-viewers. Only adobe-reader or opening in the browser, but not directly from for example Gmail.

    Also some functions in indesign could work much better, for example the button; it work perfectly as an roll-over, but not as a click-go-to-pageX. Those functions should be usable together.
    Can we make an i-pdf feel like/work as an offline website?

    And i would love to see more features/functions!

  16. Auto saving to HTML.

    Is it possible to simultaneously save to .idml at same time as saving to native Ind file format? Using tryout now and wanted to save any live work both ways so if I decide not to subscribe, I won't have to go back and save all docs to idml.

  18. Tailoring Fonts for Languages within Multilingual Documents

    Sometimes large documents that have been translated into other languages will still have English written in them (company names, brand names, stuff that original creator wants to remain in English). Many times the English text will use a specific font, but that font does not support other alphabets/characters that appear in other languages, so the unsupported text comes up as red boxes.

    There is no feature in InDesign that allows you to correctly identify the foreign language (all the red boxes) and lets you pick a different font WITHOUT changing the font for English. The only way to do this…

  19. other default setting for layer options when placing PDFs

    When placing a PDF, default setting for actualization is "keep user-defined visability ...".
    Once switched to "keep PDFs visability ...", in the next document it is again on default "keep user-defined visability ..."
    I would prefer to have "keep PDFs visability ..." as a stable default for placing.

    Example:
    1. I added a new Layer to a PDF, but set it invisable by mistake.
    2. On actualization, I accepted "new layers visible as in PDF".
    3. Later, I remarked my mistake an repaired the PDF.
    4. On actualization again, nothing got better ...

    I would prefer to know the PDFs…

  20. Make conversion of older ID documents faster loading

    I had the occasion to open a couple of older inDesign documents that are stored on my NAS drive. At first, I thought it was the network speed that took so long until I saw the popup dialog box explaining that conversion was in process. I can't believe how long it took to open the document. Am I the only one experiencing this or is inDesign becoming unproductive?
