  1. Paste Text Only from Other InDesign Documents

    We regularly copy and paste from other InDesign documents. It is really frustrating that every time we do this the incoming swatches and styles are also pasted into the document, resulting in extensive lists of swatches and styles with similar names. Much like the "Preferences - Clipboard Handling - When Pasting Text and Tables from Other Applications - Text Only" option, it would be incredibly useful to offer this feature for "Other InDesign Documents" as well.

  2. Ignore Fit to frame options when replacing images whilst maintaining size

    When I have the option "Preserve Image Dimensions When Relinking" selected, I would like it to override any Auto Fit to Frame options.

    Right now I'm working on a catalogue that has several thousand pictures and all the frames are set to Auto Fit to Frame. When I relink the images (with the high resolution files) they all change size.

  3. Return the ability to place text on top of a photo in InDesign

    I've done all the current Adobe CC upgrades (InDesign, Photoshop Illustrator), and Mac OS Catalina, and suddenly I can't place text on top of a photo while working in an InDesign document. It used to be no problem!

  6. Hyperlink in Data Merge

    Please, please, please add the hyperlink data field when using Data Merge. Why can we generate a QR code, but not add a simple URL to a box or a text or whatever you want, visibile in an interactive PDF? Please add this function, doing press releases is transforming me into a monkey!

  7. Allow full functionality for publishing online - blend modes, page transitions, etc w/animated objects

    I've been working with a new media document that has video, sound and artwork to export as an interactive graphic novel - When animating objects, blend modes are not retained. Page transition feature - "turning page" also not supported.

    Spoke with adobe and verified all tonight... he said "I'm trying to do something new". XD I could see this being very useful for graphic novel designers and other new media applications in the film and streaming space as well - would love to have this functionality in the next update so I can finish this project!

    Have found no other…

  8. The footnote in journal layout

    Please add the ability to make the text of the footnote in a separate frame, that would be able to use footnotes in a complex, journal layout. Often there are situations when some text frames, each one has footnotes and the text of these footnotes were at the bottom of the page, separately, and the numbering in turn.

  10. Consolidate shared links when packaging a book

    It would be great when packaging a book to consolidate links that are shared between documents to a "Shared Links" folder.

    As currently if you have 5 chapter document which all have the same link placed in them - then this link will be duplicated 5 times when it is unnecessary and also creates problems when updating links later on

  12. Default cross-reference parameters

    I would like to able to globally set my parameters for cross references and have these default parameters be retained for all documents that I open/ create. For example, ALWAYS open as Paragraph Numbers, ALWAYS open as Visible Rectangle, etc., etc., for all available parameters... and not revert to InDesign's defaults.

  13. show existing guide rows and columns

    When you create guides, then want to change how many rows and/or columns you have, the existing number of guides does not appear in the dialogue box, so if I want to change how many rows/columns I have, I have to count them first. Please just have the numbers for the existing guides in there automatically. Please?

  14. InDesign

    I have too many old thumbnail showing in my InDesign screen. Some are useless items, such as drafts, that I saved, but later deleted. The file is deleted, but the thumbnail is still there. I also want to have some thumbnails from 3 years ago, not go searching for them among my files later. Why don't you let us delete thumbnails of deleted files? Why do they even show up, if we deleted the file? This is a bad either/or decision we shouldn't be forced into. It's quite inconvenient. Now I'm afraid to save a draft and and have even…

  16. Cloud working

    A feature for working together on an Indesign document would be great for the year 2019. Similar to Adobe XD Cloud documents, or comparatively like the collaboration of Indesign and Incopy (Check in / Check out) - just cloud based.

    I Just want a solution for a group of Designers working on one project without having the trouble of creating a load of documents.

    thx

  17. Get Reliable Outlook Support for Changing the Password

    If you suspect your Outlook account is at risk because someone is trying to get the personal information of yours without even informing you or taking permission from you, then immediately change the password. Take effective assistance by contacting Outlook Support team with the help of provided helpline number. At this point, I think money and time is not priority for anybody else, the main motto of those helpless customers should be keep the data and account safe and protected at any cost. That’s why, we suggest you to put a single call on helpline number and get handy solution…

  18. Simple Answers to Simple Questions

    Ya'll Know that 1 Month Ago I Asked If Adobe CC 2018 or 2019 would work with MACOS CATALINA Despite the 32 Bit Sub Apps like "Application Manager," "AAMLauncherUtil" "AAM Registration Notifier" and others. All I got was a bunch of BS from everyone including Beta Testers who could have at Least TRIED to Find out. WELL NEVER MIND You F***s. IT ALL WORKS BEAUTIFULLY WITH CATALINA OFFICIAL RELEASE TODAY. TRIED AND TESTED THEM ALL. EVEN Premiere Pro & After Effects 2018, Indesign 2019, PShop, Illustrator and others. That's All I was asking and couldn't get ONE GODDAM Answer! Thank…

  19. Zoom using only Scroll Wheel / Pan with the middle mouse button

    Today, the majority of softwares have a simply rule regarding using a mouse: scroll wheel to zoom in/out and middle button and pan with middle button clicked.
    Simply like that.
    So why only PS has the option to use the scroll wheel as zoom and the other softwares from the Adobe CC don't?
    And why all the softwares in the Adobe CC doesn't the option to use the scroll wheel to zoom without pressing Alt and pan without the need to use the Spacebar.
    If those features are implemented, most people that already use Adobe products will love it!
