  1. Improve Performance when Using Multiple Paragraph Styles with GREP

    I love the capability of using GREP in a paragraph style, but cannot use it much without penalty. If I used too many, the performance slows way down and crashes occur much more often. I have a high horsepower PC and a Macbook Pro with apple silicone, both with 32GB ram and both suffer from this issue.

  2. Defined dynamic Elements (images, videos & Text....) editable by Google Sheets, API or online Editor

    I like to design in Indesign a document (businesscard, flyer u.a) and others can edit every released text, imagefields by themself with a free online Indesign Editor or with API, Google Sheet or Airtable Database.
    So if a new employee comes a other team without indesign can edit the business card or the campagne design with new images and textes. It should be possible to export Print-PDF and PNG/JPG for online campagnes.

  4. Please add Document First Page Number and Document Page Range to Text Variables

    I'm doing a layout for a scientific journal, and each article is in a separate file. The articles are then combined into a book. An important piece of information is the page range, which is part of the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) used by scientists to search. Additional text variables like Document Start Page and Document Page Range are much needed. The last variable requires separator formatting between numbers (e.g. 35-70 or 35…70)

  5. Protect approved text or pages. Properly lock text, objects or layers so that Ctrl Z doesn't undo the lock

    Sometimes when I am doing multiple Ctrl-Zs on a page it flicks back to an article on a previous page and undoes that too. If that has been previously approved and Ctrl Z makes changes I miss, that's a problem, especially if I press another key by mistake before I can do re-do. It would be very useful to properly lock approved content so that Ctrl-Z doesn't affect it. A default option would be great.

  6. InCopy - Indicator of the active text frame

    When working with overlapping text frames, users can sometimes become confused about which frame they are editing. Is there a way to visually indicate the currently active text frame? For instance, highlighting it with a colored border could be helpful.

    Alternatively, providing a simpler method to switch between different text frames would also be beneficial.

  8. Functionality for Properties Panel - similar to Illustrator Properties Panel

    I love the properties panel in InDesign. It's fantastic for beginners. I have them set up the interface to look a lot like PS and AI. I think it makes it easier to learn and feels more familiar if they have experience with the other apps. The properties panel in Illustrator has fantastic functionality. The panels are all there so you don't have to open the floating panels. The ... allows you to open the actual panel if you need more. I would like the InDesign Properties panel to work the same way. There are commands hidden in the paragraph…

  9. Multiple caption metadata items on one line

    At the moment it appears I can create captions with more than one piece of metadata, such as copywright year and artist or Folder 0 and name. But each of these must be on its own line. There is no way to have all the data one one line unless I generate a static caption then use Find/Change.

    We should be able to make captions with multiple metadata tags inline without requiring a linebreak.

  10. Home button should not disappear

    It's somewhat annoying for the home button to constantly disappear / reappear because I watch people (and myself) misclick on the File menu or maximize the program accidentally many times a day. Just leave it there all the time like in Photoshop (it's also incredibly annoying that this behavior is inconsistent across apps.)

  13. Footnote starting feature

    I have a suggestion
    I would like to see an option to restart footnote numbering. An option to number footnotes according to paragraph style would be good.

  14. Convert OST files step by step to PST format

    When it comes to managing and converting email data, the process to convert OST files step by step to PST format is essential for Outlook users needing to archive, transfer, or access their email data outside of its original environment. For this task, choosing the best tool is crucial. Interestingly, when considering tools for such conversions, it's beneficial to look at versatile software options, such as the best OST to NSF Conversion tool. These tools not only facilitate the direct conversion of OST files to PST format but also offer the capability to convert OST files to other formats like…

  15. Accessibility: DESPERATELY need to input table summaries in Indesign. Before exporting to Acrobat

    Accessibility: Long form print/digital/W3C-ADA designers need to be able to input table summaries in Indesign. I update an Accessibility Document 2-3/year. +325 Tables/25 pgs. This one project that is coupled with a 240 page digital catalog is the bain to my existence. Having to redo the Table Summary work every interation is TORTURE.

  16. More swatches in the program by default

    Include more color swatches that are always in the program by default, so you don't have to download and then import swatches to get basic things like shades of grey... Just provide all the color options available in illustrator.

  20. Create (H) Header and (P) Paragraph style on same line to produce a TOC and 508 Accessible document (Run-in Running variable))

    Create (H) Header and (P) Paragraph style on same line that will pickup the styles when I produce the TOC and make the document accessible.

    I understand this can be done in FrameMaker.

    If a programmer can make it happen in FrameMaker, they should be able to make it work in InDesign.

    Thank You, Linda
