  1. Add Alert When Missing Fonts are Replaced with Enabled Adobe Fonts

    When working in a packaged file workflow, where Adobe Fonts are not and cannot used, if there is a missing font that a user might already have enabled in Adobe Fonts, InDesign makes a font replacement with no warning.

    There is an alert to activate missing fonts, but no warning if missing fonts are already activated in the user's system. I’m not sure if you could limit this to: If there is a Document fonts folder present, then there should be an alert before fonts are replaced with Adobe Font versions. This should not effect if fonts are enabled in…

  2. Scroll document whilst Pop up window is visable (e.g Place)

    When any pop up windows like Save/ Place/ Export is open it is useful to be able to scroll the document in background.

    For example: In InDesign CS6 and you can scroll the document behind the Place pop-up window. In Adobe CC this function no longer works – which slows the design and layout process down.

    This feature was especially useful when producing books with many images in.

  3. Consistent asterisk use for unsaved files

    Would be nice to keep the asterisk for unsaved files consistent across Adobe apps: in Indesign the asterisk is IN FRONT of the filename, in Illustrator and Photoshop it's AT THE BACK.
    I sometimes think I've overwritten a file just because the asterisk isn't where I expect it to be :(

  4. Be able to link Powerpoint Presentations and InDesign

    I'd like to be able to link PowerPoint presentations to InDesign, so if a slide is moved/updated in PowerPoint it automatically moves/updates in InDesign.

  5. "Include subfolders" option when using "Relink to folder"

    When choosing "Relink to folder" in the Links panel, there should be an option to "Include subfolders". In large documents with hundreds of links that are organized into subfolders, it is a huge chore to have to click through individual folders.

  6. Equation Editor for Mac OS version

    It is very sad that Adobe relies so heavily on third party developer to fix issues for services that we CC subscribers pay for already. It is very dissapppointing that I have to search the internet for an app or plugin to do something that should be built into a product such as Indesign. I should not have to purchase anything that creates a function that this software should provide based on the context of what it is supposed to do. Indesign is in all forms a layout and typeset application that for the steep cost should provide the ability…

  7. Better functionality when placing Excel 2020 textcells referring to another cell

    Depending on InDesign and Excel version the results differ when placing Excel text cells referring to another cell. I have a big financial report with lots of text references, it would be great if this worked with latest versions of InDesign and Excel.

  8. Larger Colour Swatch Window and Colour Creation Tools

    When creating or changing a colour in the swatch window the square that shows the colour is tiny and the dragging tools be it in RGB or CMYK are the only way to choose a colour. I feel like more options could easily be availble here in terms of how to pick a colour, like a large "rainbow" grid to drag the mouse around to select exactly what you want. The current system, larger with more fidelity would be incredible!

  9. Data merge to a formatted table for multiple catalog listing on one page in a single table.

    I'm revising on a 180 page catalog that was originally created page by page, row by row with InDesign. The process was incredibly tedious and the person doing it eventually quit due to all the stress that it caused her. I would like to revise this catalog using data merge from .csv files but as you can see from the attached file some actual layout capabilities are needed and not all tables are consistent. There are also some cells in tables that need to be merged because they contain duplicate information. So far InDesign as only been able to create…

  10. Change character in default font

    I'm looking for a way to change a character in my default font. I use the font family Proxima Nova (an Adobe font, what I have activated). In InDesign you can choose between two character for the letter 'a'. There I can change the font with find glyph en replace it for the other one.

    It would be awesome to set that letter 'a' as a default 'a' in that typefont. Because this is an extra action I make for all my designs. Is there a way to change a character and set it as my default character in that…

  11. Adaptive layout, Simple math, Line Breaks with Data Merge

    The simplest example to describe a problem:
    I'd like to generate many invoices. Every invoice have different number of products on in, in table. + It would be great to have calculations options in this table. Also i think that controlling line break with data merge is must have. Create special code for ex. " " to automate it! :)

  13. Option to Change the Color picker.

  14. Export XMP metadata with exported JPG and PNG images

    Currently, when you select a single placed image, and choose File > Export and export the selection as a JPG or PNG, any metadata that is present in the image (keywords, description, etc) does not appear in the exported image.

    What I would like is that if a single image is selected to export, that InDesign would retain all the XMP metadata (or at least the keywords) applied to the image when the image is exported.

    The reason this would be useful is that sometimes users will crop and scale an image in InDesign, and then want to export the…

  15. Changing the backgroung/page colour

    I would very much like to be able to change the background colour in incopy. For example: a green page colour, with a silverish font colour. (the latter can be done already)
    As a writer, I like to work on my own terms. So this would make me love incopy, and not just use it when I need to.

  16. InDesign should feature the same shape corner handles as Illustrator

    It works so well! And has been adapted by XD. I'd love to see those little circular rounded corner handles in InDesign for shapes.

  17. Managing multiple tabs in InDesign is an abomination

    Managing multiple tabs in InDesign is an abomination. Firstly, the tolerance between reshuffling tabs and pulling a tab out to a separate window is far too small. Try doing this on a 4K screen, move your mouse a couple of millimetres up or down and all of a sudden your tab is now it's own window. Worse still is that when you pull it back into the tabs, it goes right to the back.

    This leads me to my second issue. The lack of any way to reshuffle tabs that have multiple tabs in between. There are two ways to…

  18. Page numbering

    Provide an easy application of styles to include zero as a second digit. For example, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 etc.

  19. Revert back to exact screen placement after Screen Preview (shift+w)

    When pressing escape after screen preview, the view resettles on the middle of the page (but keeps the zoom level) rather than resettling where you were working. This makes flipping between normal and screen preview mode a bit less seamless, as you have to keep scrolling back to the part you were working on after previewing.
