  1. Publish Online & Right-Click

    I frequently use the feature in InDesign that allows direct online export. However, as an artist and creator, I find it inappropriate that anyone can easily right-click on the artwork and save it as an image. For example, Google Drive doesn't allow viewers to do that. Can InDesign implement a similar restriction?

    Password protection isn't good enough; sometimes it doesn't work, and we need to make editors' lives easier. I want full control over my images and don't want anyone to save my images to their desktop so easily. It's true that many images are online, but not all of…

  3. Regarding the behavior of Adobe app UI in a multiple-screen case

    The scenario: Company given laptop usage with Adobe apps. Using multiple monitors at workplace. Also the same while working from home.

    Problem: The UI (floating windows, toolbox, etc.,) keep spreading out in different monitors or screens, which is annoying to to settle every time as the preferred monitor keeps changing. Please see attached image (UI spread cross monitors.jpg)

    Proposed solution: I understand that it might be difficult for app to trace the monitor I am using. At least there should be a possibility to 're-arrange all UI in one monitor' when I use 'Workplace' menu and choose my favorite workplace…

  4. Grid view when zoomed out

    Please allow pages to move into a grid view when zooming out. This would allow for page layout artists to look at the "big picture" view all at once without the endless scrolling. Attaching two pictures, one is what indesign looks like now, the second is what it looks like in Microsoft Word which is a MUCH more helpful view. If this is already available, please let me know, I'd love to use this feature!

  5. Upsample Images on PDF Export

    DESCRIPTION:

    Indesign could offer the option of upsampling images to a specified PPI on PDF export. Rather than requiring the user to find each under-res image and manually destructively upsample each with a round-trip through Photoshop.

    Optimally, there could be a threshold setting below which an image resolution is too low. This could be either "effective" resolution PPI number threshold ("Upsample images with an effective placed resolution above 120ppi"), or a max scale percentage that would be needed to get the image up to the set output resolution ("Upsample images within 40% of target resolution." or "Upsample images by no…

  6. Enable the deletion of button rollover state once it's been created

    Once you've created a button AND applied a rollover state, you can't currently delete it. I know you can "hide" it, and I know you can convert the button back to an object, but I want the ability to delete the rollover state once it's been created. Similar to a multi-state object, it would be great if we can delete the rollover state (like you can do with individual states in an MSO).

  7. search

    Make the search bar visible when users press CMD+F (or windows alternative).

    At the moment, when you click to search text on a document that's shared for review, it seems like the search bar doesn't appear. But in reality it's hidden behind the comments panel. You have to close the comments/preview panels to see it.

    This causes a lot of "there's no search bar" comments from users, and we have to specifically tell them now when we share for review "it's hidden. Close this panel".

    The search function should always be visible when someone presses CMD+F.

  8. Put the Overset text warning directly at the beginning of the export file process

    When I want to export a PDF, InDesign kindly reminds me of overset text or missing links. However, I do not understand why this warning appears at the very end, after I have gone through the file location selection and PDF export settings. Obviously, I want to correct this error in 95% of cases. Instead, I have to cancel the export, then go through the entire process again. The file location, file name, and any PDF export settings I might have changed are lost, and I have to start all over again.

    Adobe gentlemen listen to me! I would like to have the possibility that when I export a PDF for printing a certain paragraph style does not come out... it should be a setting inside the paragraph style to tell it with an option do not export... it could be very useful in case I have a catalog with prices and I want to export the PDF without. Thank you

  10. Make share button neutral

    The new SHARE button is very blue. In Photoshop we have the option to make it interface colored. Same in Illustrator. InDesign dosen't.

  12. Autosave on Indesign !!!

    Currently in much distress due to the lack of an autosave feature on indesign. We artists and students should not be trusted to manually save our work. We just leave it up at all times. I know this exists on Adobe applications, this needs to be a top priority. Too many lost files due to this. Praying for a miracle and a non-existent recovered file. CATER TO YOUR AUDIENCE!

  15. Paragraph Rules Improvements

    I would be great if the Paragraph Rules menu received a couple of improvements:

    1) Add a chain link for when you want both the Color and Gap Color to be the same. Likewise for the Tint and Gap Tint percentage.

    2) This one is a bit difficult to explain, but one of the biggest annoyances with using Paragraph Rules to apply a RULE ON to text is that the rule expands/contracts in an undesired way if you change the size of a text box or if you add/delete something from the text. What should happen is that the rule…

  18. Align to page when only one item selected!

    I usually have 'Align to Selection' as my default. Wouldn't it be great if when only one item is selected that the align buttons use 'Align to Page'

  19. Paragraph Styles & Character Styles sort by color/label

    It would be great to be able to color-label a specific paragraph style from the paragraph styles panel. It helps visually when working with lots of paragraph styles. Also, this applies to character styles as well. Perhaps even the groups within the paragraph styles panel could be color-labeled. This feature is already in Photoshop and even Premiere Pro has a color-label feature so for all of us working in InDesign it is a critical feature.

  20. Enable "relink to CC Library"

    Enable "relink all images to a different CC Library" (relink to CC Library) , like you do on your hard drive (relink to folder)

    I´m creating catalogues where I reuse a lot of images again and again,.
    I copy images from one Library to a new Library.
    Then I want to relink this new Library to a copy of my Indesign document.

    Earlier it was easy to link all images to a different folder, but in CC Librarys it do not work the same way, very frustrating.

    And with the shutting down of synced files folders it’s very important to…
