  4. Creation of Table of Contents — Adjustable size of the interface window (width and height)

    Creation of Table of Contents — Adjustable interface window (width and height)

    When working in huge and very complex documents — with dozens and dozens of paragraph styles and very complex table of contents —, the limitations of the interface window are rather annoying. The window cannot namely be expanded to have a better view of the selected styles.

    The number of visible styles is namely limited to four (see screenshot). And the width cannot be adjusted either.

    It would thus be a considerable improvement if the window size could be customized in order to have a much better view…

  5. Find all instances of a Paragraph Style

    Find all instances of a Paragraph Style in a document via the Paragraph Styles panel. Like you can see with Links, be able to view the pages that the styles exist on and jump to these pages by clicking on the page number in the panel or be able to navigate through them with up and down arrows

  6. Global baseline shift

    In version 14.0.2, we may select any character(s) in a single line adjusting baseline shift variously for each selection of characters. Having made specific baseline shifts, it would be nice to select the desired text and while preserving their relative differing baseline shifts to then globally raise and/or lower the entire line.

    Currently, we are not able to do this. The attached shows that if I select the differing baseline shifted characters, InDesign's UI baseline shift incrementer becomes unavailable. I can globally reset the entire line imposing a single shared baseline value via text input, but this does not respect…

  7. Map tags to Object Styles

    It would be great to map tags to not only paragraph and table styles, but also to object styles. Paragraph styles have some limitations wich object styles don't have.

  8. How do I reset HP Printer Is Offline error within my Printer?

    The HP printer’s Drum unit is a separate consumable unit that usually should be replaced after the use of 3 to 4 toner cartridges. If you possess a HP laser printer and getting a Replace Drum message on display of your printer, then it might be the right time to get a new drum. In order to track usage, your HP printer utilizes a page counter, which must be reset manually whenever a new drum is installed. If resetting doesn’t perform successfully, then you may face HP Printer Is Offline error. However, the online experts are only one call away…

  9. Multiple footnote referencing

    I thought of a way to implement multiple references to the same footnote without breaking HTML links between footnotes.

    You could allow for the creation of multiple footnote links from the text into footnotes that point to the same footnote, with a sequence of different secondary designations. For example, footnote 1a, 1b, 1c... all could point to Footnote 1. Then, in the footnote, you could open with 1 a b c ..., with the different letters providing alternate linkbacks to the other places in the text.

    This is how Wikipedia handles multiple referencing to the same citation, so there's precedent.…

  10. Flash Player should not be required to play non-Flash video in PDFs

    Currently Interactive PDFs exported from InDesign require Flash to be installed for videos to be viewed. This is true even when the video is an MP4, and when the settings in Acrobat are set so it uses the Windows/Mac native video player.

    Non-Flash videos should not require a Flash player. The PDF 2.00 specification allows for media in Interactive PDFs... but with Flash going away in 2020 we need a solution to continue showing media files in PDFs.

  12. Make it possible to add ad Swatch from within the Style editing panels

    When editing a style and realising that a certain Swatch is not made yet, is a bit frustrating, since Swatches can not be added on the fly.
    Why not make it possbile to edit a color and add a Swatch in the style editing panel? Or let have styles their own colors without the need of a Swatch.

  14. Enable utilization of graphics card

    Why doesn't InDesign utilize my expensive graphics card? ****** performance surrounding display quality, and other performance issues. This software is much too expensive to be without GPU acceleration. This impacts thousands of user's daily workflow, wasting time we could be spending on design and inspiration research.

    Before you release new, useless features that barely work, how about doing some real improvements to the software. Make InDesign (and the rest of the suite) properly utilize our expensive graphics cards.

    In the meantime, (or nevertime, as it seems to be) be very clear in the hardware requirements that a graphics card is…

  15. Edit Variable dialog: highlight Text text box first instead of variable name to work faster

    In the Edit Variables dialog box, It would work faster on a daily basis if the third text box, named Text, would be the one highlighted for change. In a context where you define all your templates then reuse them, when you use variables, it is only to change them. So most used text box is the third one in the Edit variable dialog box.

    We would save a lot of time if, when we click to edit a variable, the 3rd text box is highlightes for change.

  17. Disable paragraph border end rule across columns in InDesign

    We have option to merge paragraph border for set of paragraphs in InDesign. This results in enabling top and bottom rule for 1st and last consecutive paragraphs only.


    In this case, when a paragraph breaks into next column, then bottom rule will not enable for 1st column(screenshot 1). But if whole paragraph goes into next column, the bottom rule enables for 1st column (Screenshot 2).

    Expectation: But our client has requested to disable the bottom rule in 1st column regardless of how the paragraph breaks.

    Screenshot 1:

    Without_end_rule.png

    Screenshot 2:

    with_end_rule.png

    Thanks,

    Subathra

  18. Drop down menu mixed with replace feature for contacts/agreements

    Inside of InDesign, I'd love a way to use the drop down menu feature that when you select an option inside of there it replaces that word with the newly selected word throughout a document. This would be great for contract/agreements, or any long documents.

    For example the drop down menu could have "marketer", "consultant", "freelancer", etc. Then depending on which item you selected it would replace that word inside the document entirely!

  20. Indesign should Natively already have the capability 2 expensive 3rd party plugins add. EasyCatalog and in5 should not be needed at all.

    EasyCatalog plugin by 65bit vastly improves Indeisgn's terrrible and dated Data automation and catalogue ability. It is expensive and adds features indesign should do much better by now. Same is true for in5 a plug in to add html 5 export ability and makes up for the total abandonment of the DPS options. Lucidpress offers better digital magaizne options and spreadsheet linking at the moment.
