  2. Need Better (and Less-Hidden) Accessibility Tagging Options

    Please make it much easier to add accessible alt-text to InDesign documents. There should be an accessibility panel and pre-check to make it very easy for designers.

    As it is now, it's too hidden: https://www.adobe.com/accessibility/products/indesign/alt-text.html

  3. RTL in all versions of InDesign, not just the Middle Eastern version.

    It is ridiculous that I have to install a completely different regional version of InDesign to get access to RTL. Apart from the addition of an RTL/LTR button and a drop down specially from Arabic, what is the difference other than the default language?

  4. Tracking: highlight tight and loose lines with two colours

    I typeset books and it is often useful to see at a glance where text can be tweaked in order to make or lose a line. Having two colours would make it much quicker and easier to identify affected lines. Being able to modify the colours would be a bonus.

  5. Media Panel is missing all playback settings for MP4 files in InDesign 2020

    CC 2020 is missing all its control settings for playing MP4 files in an interactive pdf. Until this year's upgrade you had multiple options on what Controller Functions appeared when playing/displaying MP4's in an Interactive PDF document.

    Navigation Points have been re-introduced in the Media panel. This feature is available in the latest release of InDesign (version 16.0). Please use this release to use Navigation Points for Video/Audio files.

    However, the Controller options will not be available. As communicated earlier, all options (Controller options being one of them) related to Flash/Flash player have been removed from InDesign as Flash Player is now being EOL’d (End of Life).

  6. Uses of Quickbooks auto data recovery

    Auto Data Recovery facilitates data recovery in two ways:

    Use your current Transaction Log file and a duplicate of your Company file to recover lost transactions.
    All transactions should be rebuilt using a copy of both your transaction and business files, with the exception of the recent few hours.

  7. bookmark zoom level

    It would be a lifesaver to be able to set the bookmark zoom level in InDesign (whatever it defaults to now, "Fit Page", I think, isn't great for everyone), so that when it exports to PDF you can already have it set to "Inherit Zoom" (or whatever you need) rather than having to manually figure out a way to do it in Acrobat. When you edit the bookmark zoom level in Acrobat, there's not even a way to do it from the InDesign action that's there--you have to basically create a whole new bookmark, redirect it and then set the…

  8. Show/Hide global baseline and textframe baseline individually

    It would be nice to be able to show/hide the global baseline and textframe baseline individually. At the moment they are turned on and off together which can be pretty hard to navigate.

  9. Open location from 'Recent files' in explorer or bridge

    I normally save my exports to somewhere very close to the INDD file. Would love to be able to open a bridge or explorer window to the location of the files listed in 'Recent files' (the home screen when nothing is open).

  10. Please bring back Indesign CS6 feature of Footnote Leading to be at zero so that We can have inline footnotes.

    Please bring back the Indesign CS6 feature of Footnote Leading can be made at zero so that We can have inline footnotes. (Multiple vertical footnotes can be made in the same line horizontally to save space). Please see the attached file as an example. Currently, all the CC Indesign versions by default put a space between footnotes vertically (Leading). No matter what it does not allow the multiple footnotes to be in the same line horizontally. That is like deleting a very useful feature and reducing the capabilities of Indesign for Publishing industry formatters like us.

  13. Option to draw a text frame on top of another text frame

    Making a new text frame on top of an existing text frame is something I very frequently need to do. However, as it is, for different reasons this simple process is needlessly cumbersome.

    I have two suggested solutions (I have a dream that both could be implemented, and make a basic upgrade to my workflow):

    1. Make the type tool able to draw a text frame on top of another text frame. Explanation: When hovering the type tool above an empty area, the tool turns into a text frame tool, as indicated by the cursor. However, when hovering above an existing…

  14. Content Placer Tool Thumbnail to Size

    Would it be possible to have an option to have the content placer tool thumbnail be proportional to the page it is being placed on? I use this tool to make large multiple image proofs from images placed into a client-supplied file and need to show them at the placed size. When I place them on the page, using the content placer tool, I cannot gauge the size until it is placed. I have to move them around to make them fit after placing a few and so on until all images are placed. Being able to see the size…

  16. PLEASE PLEASE! Buttons and forms Window

    PLEASE PLEASE!

    The Buttons and forms window is really difficult to work with.
    Can you please enhance its usability?
    Being able to group buttons, reorder buttons in the window would be a massive help.
    Other users have expressed the need to expand the window - this is an absolute must so we can get an overview of the interactivity for each element, right now this is impossible and it takes so much time refining and debugging. Our clients are asking for more interactivity and it would great to be able to do this with the same efficiency as layout in…

  17. InDesign version (or mode) for UI/UX design prototyping

    Please create InDesign version (or mode) for UX design prototyping. I know Adobe has Adobe XD product, but it's missing better typography, paragraph/object/table styles, tables, master pages, etc. Adobe XD is attempt to copy Sketch. Instead you, guys, should have build Adobe XD based on InDesign

  18. Please make it possible that whenever you create a QR code it automatically makes it into a hyperlink as well.

    This could be done by maybe ticking off a box when creating a QR code to optionally create a hyperlink. I know QR codes are prodominently made to scan with a phone but if you wish to publish the same publication online it would be nice if you could also click on the qr code, making it easier for the reader. It would make it easier because now I have to make a QR code while also applying the same hyperlink on it thus taking me more time and increasing the possibility of an error.

  19. Being able to change Topic Levels in indices after they have been added to the index

    After a topic has been added to the index, it’s no longer possible to e.g. move the current topic to Topic Level 2 and add a new Topic Level 1. Would be amazing if it was.

  20. keyboard shortcuts for custom PDF preset

    I can't be the only one who uses the same PDF presets over and over when exporting. It would be really helpful if I could set a keyboard shortcut to those custom presets so I could export them on the fly.
