  1. Frame Fitting Panel

    Fairly self explanatory. Frame fitting options are one of the only frequently used features that don't have their own panel, which can cause UX issues for various reasons. Solution, give them a panel.
    Thanks

  3. Colouring and user-order of font menu

    User customized font menu. Colours and the ability to order the fonts exactly how you want. . This makes it so easy to slide to the part of the menu to grab a font you know. This was done in the 1990's by Now Utilities on OS7, 8 and 9. Bring it on!!! It was SO fast to find your fonts. I had blue for Serif, red for San Serif, green for Script and so on. Colour coding is great for many features.

  4. 1. Warping fonts easily like Aldus Typetwister or Typstyler. Preset by user for easy re-use. 2. Valuable for better design.

    Adobe already owns Typetwister when it bought Aldus. Just incorporate it into InDesign. Welcome back to 1990.

  6. Restore access to "Screen Mode" and "View Options" menus somewhere on the workspace

    In Indesign 2020 the "Screen Mode" and "View Options" menus have been removed from the Application Bar. I frequently toggle back and forth between "normal" mode and "preview" mode and I don't want the extra step of having to go to the "View" menu to do this. I also like to be able to quickly turn frames on and off (View Options). Is there a way to have these menus added back onto the workspace somewhere? Thanks!

  8. Problem with Paragraph Borders across the page (with same paragraph style)

    In the "Paragraph Borders" we need an option that allows you to determine whether or not to leave the "paragraph border" at the bottom of the page. When using the same paragraph style (to simulate a table) often the client requires that the border at the bottom (or top) of the page are not visible, to indicate continuity (as happens now in the case in which the same paragraph is divided between the two pages).

    Operating system: "catalina 10.15.1".
    InDesign: version 15.0.1.

  10. Feature to export / import workspace settings

    As a freelancer working in and out of different studios, having to set up workspaces each time could be made easier by being able to import a workspace setting (like you can with swatches).

    This feature would be useful across all CS programs.

  11. The "undo" button: aka- Control + z

    Please allow to undo (ctrl + z) more than three times. It's frustrating to not be able to go back more than three times, especially when you're working on a longer document and you have to close out of it because InDesign won't let you fix something you made four corrections ago.

  12. Thank for new versions - but the scroll button the is a dull grey atop another shade of grey is not visible enough for quick work -

    i have worked as a designer for many years - please consider colour and contrast in the scroll feature for pages. As i try to proof a manuscript against another file, i must constantly search for the scroll tab in order to read more text - even a lighter shade of grey or something complementary would help the worker.
    thanks

  13. Include Spread Rotation in PDF Export and Publish Online

    When exporting/publishing as spreads, allow us to "include spread rotation" and display those properly in the online viewer and PDF export.

    I have a calendar layout with most of the spreads rotated for proper viewing. I've always exported as spreads and rotated manually in Acrobat for the client but I can't do that when publishing online.

    A simple version of this would apply only when exporting spreads ie: where the result of 2 8x10 pages is a single 16x20 page which is then rotated per the ID view settings.

    A truly complete solution would need Acrobat/Reader the ability to show…

  14. Merge index page entries

    Indexing often end up looking like this:

    Smith, John 37, 38, 39.

    It's tedious to have to make the first entry be for the next three pages and delete the other two. Why not have a menu option to "Merge consecutive pages." It could be run near the end of the indexing process when the page breaks are unlikely to change.

    Even better would be an option to for consecutive page entries to create a new entry that makes the first the start of the indexing and the last the end of it. That'd keep the range right even when…

  15. Radically improve indexing efficiency

    This is a general suggestion. Indexing is one of the most tedious, time-consuming processes in ID. Look for ways to make it more efficient. Here are some suggestions.


    1. When a user selects text for indexing, automatically look up that text in the index listing and display those that match. Often the text with say "John Smith" but his name is in the index as" John H. Smith." When a user selects text with "Smith" in it, have a window that displays all entries with "Smith," allowing the proper one to be selected.


    2. Clicking to open lists under first letters is…

  16. Automatically update the preview in the index panel

    Currently, when users make a change to an index entry the result page range listing is not automatically. Users have to select Update Preview from the Index panel. Why not make the index list automatically update whenever a change is made?

  17. French dictionaries

    The Académie française updated spellings in French in 1990, and textbooks in France are now teaching the new versions. But InDesign does not inherently support the new spellings. The only way to activate them is by drilling down into the files and adding Hunspell manually. ID does support much more recent German reforms, though. After 29 years (which is literally older than ID itself!), it's time for Adobe to support this.

  18. Show the year-based version name in the about window

    I'd like to see the YEAR based version name of each product, in the About window. Today I need to visit Wikipedia to check what the version numbers mean.

  19. Split Columns doesn't work correctly yet

    If I use the option "Split column" all the paragraphs at the bottom of the page aren't splitted, the option doesn't work correctly (1.png), except when the text boxes are closed manually (2.png), as you can see from the attached files.
    I don't understand the utility of not splitting two columns at the bottom of the page when this property is selected in the options.

  20. Sensei, use it to align text and shapes

    Hi all,
    Could Sensei be used to align text and shapes? Seems like a no-brainer to me to let AI fix it.
    An example , text in a circle.
    Now if you want to align it, you first need to Frame to fit the text. Then you need to select both the textframe and the circle. Then align them horizontally and vertically. ( on some frames you need to nudge the text up a bit to really align then horizontally.
    AI would could align both boundingboxes in less then a second.
    Please add it :)
