  1. Hidden pages alert

    PLEASE add an alert on a PDF export if pages are hidden. For many projects, we cannot risk have pages hidden in the final PDF (i.e., proposals).

  3. Export document with specific pages in multiple color spaces

    I do medical journals, and I frequently have clients who request their document in 2 versions: a full color version for online, and a version where some, but not all of the pages are in grayscale for the printer, to save on printing cost.

    It is yes possible to export an entire document converted to a grayscale color space, with some admittedly janky workarounds which it would also be nice to see streamlined.

    But at the moment, what I do for my needs is I have to export a full color version, a separate grayscale version, and then manually collate…

  4. White spot

    not only in indesign, but in the entire Adobe suite, I require that it be possible to have a white spot color. This means being able to assign a white color that also allows the overprint definition. At the moment only the competition allows it.

  5. Copy text from the Indesign Review panel, into my text in my Indesign file.

    I work a lot with the review links, and I can copy text from the webbrowser review panel; but not from the review panel in Indesign itself. Which makes that If I need to copy a piece of text; written by my reviewers, to adjust in the copy of my file, I have to go to the web version of the link, copy there, go back to ID, find the piece of copy I want to adjust and paste it in there. Very time consuming work around.

    Can this be fixed?

  6. Apply parent pages based on text

    I would like the ability to force a page to use a Parent Page based on the content of that page.

    For example, a long document might have several chapters and the chapter title or chapter number uses a specific paragraph style. That style could include an attribute to apply a specific Parent Page to the page the text appears on, allowing the designer to automatically select the chapter start parent where appropriate. As the text reflows the parent would be removed or reapplied as the text moves from page to page.

    Sometimes a paragraph might span a page break,…

  7. Right Click on object -> Move/Copy it to any Layer

    Sometimes when you want to move or copy an object from one layer to another, it can become a bit cumbersome if you're working with a lot of layers and those layers themselves have a lot of files.

    So my suggestion is to add a menu shortcut when you right click on any object to move that object to any available layer.

    See crude example below.

    Thank you.

  8. Make the CC Library popup notes legible

    Using CC Libraries in InDesign 2022, 2023+ has been very helpful. However, I find that the notes added to the object are illegible. Doesn't matter what color I make the interface or which monitor or monitor resolution I set, when I hoover my mouse over the library object the pop out note text is a light grey on a grey background and difficult to read.

    Can we had some user level adjustment so those library items can be zoomed or to change them so the text is black with a white background while we are hovering over them?

    Thank you.

  11. Footnote Improvement: Footnotes do not always get consecutive numbers. Footnotes within quoted material retain their original numbers.

    This post is similar to "Custom numbered footnotes." Footnote Improvement: Footnotes do not always get consecutive numbers. Footnotes within quoted material retain their original numbers. To allow this, all Adobe needs to do is to create a second kind of footnote, the non-sequential footnote. The existing footnote style has a counter that increments by 1 every time the user inserts a footnote. Create a non-sequential footnote style that requires the user to enter the desired footnote number, and do not let that footnote increment the counter in the existing, sequential footnote style. Then the user can select either footnote style,…

  12. Quick Key for increaseing space between paragraphs.

    A quick key for increasing space between paragraphs would make it quicker to explore and establish paragraph styles. It would be great if there were quick keys to adjust the spacing around the first and last line too, but the space between paragraphs seems more important, personally speaking.

    How about Command + Option + Shift + up/down Arrow Keys so it's similar to the quick key to increase/decrease leading.

  13. Collaborative Work + Multiple Users Opening the Same File Simultaneously

    We need a collaborative environment inside InDesign. We use InD for Proposals and document repositories. We have manually created a library of graphics and text that we use as standard content across multiple documents. We have a team that is constantly asking for access to the file. The lack of version history reverting and tracking makes this a nightmare on top of the fact that only one person can have the file open at a time. Then, you open it, and on PC it says its a read-only file so you have to save-as a new file name. Document integrity…

  14. Toggle "Preview" ON by default

    I'd like to see the effect of what I'm doing e.g. in the Paragraph panel by default. Can't find this in the application or on Google. This could easily be an option in the Preferences.

  15. Links Panel: Show Exact Matches only

    When re-linking files, add an option to show "Exact matches only". Adobe Premiere has this. So when you're looking for the file you're re-linking, all files are greyed out except for the one that matches your file name.

    Find the Premiere equivalent in German attached!

  17. Align Stroke to Outside option by default

    For me the default Stroke Alignment setting should be Outside. I am always using boxes and frequently need to change the stroke widths. Since the default setting is Center alignment, this resizes the box, which I can't imagine anyone ever wanting. There doesn't seem to be any way to change the default stroke alignment to Outside, so I am constantly having to change this in the Stroke window. Which means we must have the Stroke window open simply because we cannot set the Outside as default. InDesign 19.2, Mac Ventura.

  18. Hide all text and picture box borders when hiding Guides.

    I wish InDesign would hide all faint text and box borders when hiding the document Guides. I am forced to go to Overprint Preview to hide those, which slows down the design process, because Overprint Preview mode is very slow and not at all smooth to scroll through multiple book pages to preview designs without the distractions of seeing any faint text boxes. I don't see this ability in any of the Settings menus. Indesign 19.2, Mac Ventura 13.6.4

  19. Create a shortcut after a program update

    When InDesign (or any other Adobe app is updated), I have to find the old shortcuts, delete them, hunt for the new program version and manually create a new shortcut and pin it to the taskbar. Is there a way to automate this or make it easier? Can it be done in CC?

  20. artificial intelligence for text

    Wouldn't it be a nice idea to have InDesign apply some artificial intelligence for looking at the text? Like what ChatGPT can do, but then integrated into InDesign. Checking the complexity, readability, Colorcontrast, tone-of-voice etc of your text. Would love to see that. Or suggestions on how to solve readability-issues for accessible PDF! Yeah!
