Make align/do not align to baseline be available on the text control panel at top as well as on para control panel.
It is great how, at the top of the Indesign work area, when you choose the text portion of the control panel, you can still (at far right) access some paragraph tools (spacing, etc.); and how when you choose the para portion of the control panel, text tools are also still available at far right. Perhaps there is a reason I haven't thought out as yet why my idea hasn't been done, but I have to, I am CONSTANTLY needing to access the align/do not align to baseline tool when I'm in text mode, and I have to keep switching back to the para mode to get to it! It's such a small tool. Is there any way to incorporate it onto the text bar the same way you have incorporated other para bar tools? That would be so helpful! Thanks for any consideration

Add table formatting with cell style rather than replace all existing formatting
When doing financial table I need to added extra space or strike to rows while also adding fills to some columns, also some columns have different text style eg Bold, Italic etc.
With Cell Styles they override the existing formatting.
I would like to be able to add these as a Cell Style to a row without replacing the existing format . This would be a bit like a nested style.1 vote
'Apply Similar Filter' character addition
As already used in Photoshop and Illustrator, the 'Apply Similar Filter' to text and character seems like a logical step, given that InDesign is a primarily text heavy application, being able to select similar fonts would be a must in my books.1 vote
This is now available in InDesign CC 2018. Thanks!!
Native language hyphenation
My German client would love if their words broke naturally not at random bits of words, similar to how shows the proper place for word breaks: www.silbentrennung24.de5 votes
Complement and Inverse
Why not have Complement and Inverse on the color menu, just like in Illustrator?1 vote
Please Integrate with photoshop.
Im having a nightmare trying to open Indesign files in to photoshop, keeping layers. One can think that it would be more natural, because thay are both design programs made by the same company. In practice it seems to be impossible. Please I need to be able to do it somehow. Any clues?4 votes
Its 2017, how about you start making an option available to email invoices for Creative Cloud? I have to go to 3 different accounts every month to print these manually for my accounts department. Its RIDICULOUS.1 vote
Add ability to define text sections
There could be a panel much like the conditional text panel, which allows you to define and name text ranges/sections, which should be stackable.
Thinking of HTML/XML/EPUB export of content, you are then able to feed the sections into div containers (<div class="sec1"><h1>Blabla</h1><p>blablablablabl</p>...</div>).
Nowadays such containers, which you must have according to the DTD/Schema or Website the content will be published after print publishing, have to be added by hand or with tricky XSLT programming.1 vote
Better Stroke Styles with Gap color
This is actually a crossover between objects and styles. When I do a custom striped stroke style with a gap color, the gap color peeks out behind the stroke. It appears both in InDesign and in the resulting PDF. That background color should not show.3 votes0 comments · Styles · Admin →
Merge mulitple pages together to create one page. Clients design each panel as the same size rather than having a short fold in panel
Would like to be able to combine pages into one page. Clients are sending files (such as a 3 fold brochure) where each panel is the same size, not taking into account that the fold-in panel should be shorter. Seems difficult to make a shorter page as the page seems to be off and its not an easy fix.1 vote

F&C queries stored on server
In stead of storing the xml files in the user folder, making it possible to store them on a server too and be able to refer to that folder with a shortcut. As for the scripts you could have the "user queries" and the app queries. This is handy when you have to control more then one computer in your department.1 vote
Open pages of a pdf file in a single InDesign file
I always face this problem where I need to open a single page of a pdf. file to do amendment. It’s difficulty when my client doesn’t have the working file (indd). I hope adobe is allowing me to open all pages of a pdf. file in a single InDesign.2 votes
Note field with published files
In our company we create several versions of our brochures made in InDesign, based on the type of client and job. The title for the various versions needs to be identical (Design Brief from XXX) so it's time consuming to identify the correct file for a specific client. If we were able to add notes for ourselves for each file that would be helpful. Ideally these notes would be visible for us on the Publish Online Dashboard, visible right there with each of the titles of the published files.3 votes
A pdf setting that allows me to Set the "opening view" properies of a pdf from indesign
Allow setting of the PDF "opening view" properties on creation instead of after creation.
When I send a proof, I want my customers to see the pages panel, and view the files at a specific size and layout - Doing this has saved thousands of cock-ups - unfortunately it has cost me hundreds of hours doing the same thing over and over.5 votesNeed More Info · Anonymous responded
This feature already exists in InDesign, or are there some enhancements over and above what already exists that you are requesting here.
Align to top/bottom of page in Paragraph Styles
For text at 90 degrees, allowing the use of one paragraph style instead of using both a left aligned and a right aligned style.1 vote
Restore the page overlay display in the print dialog.
I previous version of InDesign and the initial releases of InDesign 2017, you could see quite clearly what would print on the selected sheet size. In the latest update as of Aug 2017, if I change a sheet from letter to legal that has been printed previously, letter is still selected in the dialog, but due to the preview sheet being legal and cannot see that there is a size mismatch without going through the individual dialogs. For reference, the portion of the document that would not be within the printable region showed as a different shade of grey, whereas the entire preview now shows white.

Native AI support.
Using links within AI to keep source files small is useless if INDD is a part of the workflow because INDD will not place AI files unless PDF compatibility is turned on. Turning on PDF compatibility in AI when saving embeds all links so linking files instead of embedding them makes no difference.
Please make INDD able to place AI files that have not been saved with PDF compatibility turned on.2 votes
