  2. REPLACING A PLACED ITEM SHOULD NOT INCREASE OR DECREASE THE SIZE OF THE NEW ITEM.

    When you have a box with a placed item and you go to replace the item, the program should not INCREASE or DECREASE the percentage of the place item to fill the box. (Just cost me a client)

  3. "arrange document"

    Enhanced 'Arrange Documents' features

    It would be very helpful if one could apply keyboard shortcuts to 'Arrange Documents' options (Consolidate All, Tile All in Grid, Tile All Vertically, etc.) It would also be awesome if we could save our own frequently used layouts.

  4. Annoying dialogs, option to “don’t show again”...

    Is there some universal way to turn off unnecessary dialogs?

    For example when I click to publish a document for online, I get an annoying dialog that says "Are you sure you want to update..." (see attached).

    Why is this dialog necessary? I can just re-publish if there was some mistake. It just slows things down. Some dialogs like this do have a "don't show me this again" option, but not here... why?

    In general, I find the plethora of "Do you really want to..." dialogs disruptive and unnecessary. Except for something critical, or something you can't undo, why do…

  5. smart templates and content

    We would like to have an option ware lets say you have basic shipping marks template and you use it in different files, that you then can update the template design and that it then changes also in the files in with it ware used. because we use a lot of the same content over different files but we need to update each and every one every time we make a change.

  7. A way to chose where you would like to save your links, INDD file, etc when "packaging" a file.

    When working on projects with multiple large books, we would appreciate a way to "package" a file, yet save all of the links for each book in a Master Links Library folder, fonts in a Master Fonts Library folder, and PDFs in a designated folder.

    Additionally, it would be awesome if there was a way to preflight a file and ensure that all links are linking to a specific master links folder.

  8. Show which layer is printing in the slug area.

    We often have to print specific layers to be sure our art is on the correct layer for printing. It would be especially helpful to us to see which layer is printed along with the page information.

  9. Live color update when using color picker on a fill

    When an object that can be filled is selected i can't use the color picker to see a new color without clicking OK repeatedly to see how it looks. Why can't it update in real time?

  10. Blending mode (effect pannel) Text and forms as a mask with the next image

    Dear Adobe, could you make it possible to add behind a text or form a picture - like in photoshop with masks. May be it would be possible to integrate it as a effect (blending mode) to have mark the layer as a mask (black) mask (white) - this would help a lot making much faster

  11. More than just the single Links folder when packaging.

    It would be nice to be able to preserve my file structure when packaging a book. Just separate folders for images, docs, table, etc. There are a lot of files in a 500-600 page technical manual with 50-60 documents/chapters, and it's a pain to sort through when everything gets dropped into a single Links folder.

  17. Create paragraph style from manual formatting and apply to all text with the same formatting

    A common task is converting manual text formatting to a paragraph style. It would be great if there were a way to do this automatically.

    For example, suppose I was given a LONG document in which Helvetica 12pt text is the body style, but no actual paragraph style exists for this—all the formatting is manual.

    The current best way to solve this problem is to perform a Find/Change operation for all text formatted as Helvetica 12pt and replace it with my paragraph style for "body text." This works but is tedious, especially when there are many styles in the document,…

  18. Picking colours from swatches for gradients

    I find it a little tedious when doing gradients that you have to manually enter in the values of the colours even if they're in your swatches. You can add to your swatches from what you're making but you can't just quickly drop a swatch in as a gradient value. Just a bit of a pain when you're trying to work quickly
