  2. MacBook Pro Special Characters

    When using the newer MacBook Pro series, we are able to use special characters like e-diaeresis by simply holding our 'E' button and there will pop up a menu where we can then choose to select the preferable character.

    Would love to see this! I have added an screenshot for clarification.

  3. Integration for Bengali (Bangladesh) Hunspell spellchecker

    For years I've been using my own Bengali (Bangladesh) hunspell spellchecking dictionary in InDesign, and I wish it was just integrated into the software. I'm the author of it and I'd be happy to provide it to InDesign. But alongside this it would be nice if the process of adding new hunspell dictionaries was easier, if it didn't need to be redone after every update; and currently it doesn't even work.

  5. Show error when paragraph composer cannot render lines

    All too often, I run into text that doesn't render because of some feature of the text (unsure of all cases, but examples are words that exceed the line length, common in some languages and in URLs). I have a stable of techniques for dealing with these issues, but most usually I'm poking around in the dark: the lines I'm trying to fix are not visible in InDesign; I don't know what exactly is offensive (e.g., Chinese lines were usually things work, but sometimes they don't); and the offending text might have gremlins from the source text that are not…

  6. Make it possible to lock down or freeze all kinds of text wraps made by detect edges

    It would be great if there was a way to “freeze” all kinds of text wrap made by detecting edges in a document, or in other words to make them static, so they stop changing with the image. If the designer uses the final image, everything is fine. The problems arise when a print service provider has to make adjustments to the images prior to printing, such as changing color profiles, converting or correcting colors, downsampling, or replacing the designer’s lores versions with hires. Even the slightest changes will often make the text reflow, and this is very troublesome to…

  7. Keep wth Next able to keep with more than 5 lines

    The ‘Keep with Next’ feature is very useful, but why is it limited to 5 lines. A max of ten would be far more useful.

  8. Better variable management

    The ability to better manage variables in a document would be very helpful. The possibility to import a List without using 3rd party scripts, an overview which are in use and where, a search function, etc...

  9. Scaling with conditional text

    When scaling a text box allow all hidden conditional text to scale. As of now only the visible text scales. This is extremely inconvenient when working with a lot of conditional text,

  10. Select/Move Multiple Tabs in the Tabs Window

    I don't think I'm asking for anything spectacular. I agree the Tabs interface isn't the best but, one thing that would make it much more tolerable would be, what I think, would be a simple change. Can we shift or ctrl click multiple tabs in the same section to slide all of them together please? Having to re-adjust all tabs on a line just because #1 or #2 need to shift to the right seems like a crazy oversight in functionality. Not to mention a time consuming and frustrating one. Please add this little thing to the next update and…

  11. shortcut for paragraph single-line composer

    I use single-line composer all the time, to control text into spaces. But every time I have to manually change a paragraph in the paragraph window, dropdown, select.... I'd love a shortcut for this (have tried allocating one but can't)

  13. Own individual font/type/characters categories

    I think everybody has a large font libary. It would be great if we could make own individual tags or categories (groups) to organise the font library.

    For Example:
    "Project xyz" (5 types/fonts)
    "Fresh" (..10 types..)
    and so on - so creating own groups for type

  14. Required Font Usage Pallet In Floatting with adjustable size

    The Font Usage or Find/Replace Font windows need to be redesigned as like link panel. This existing window/dialogue box is not user friendly.

    List of issues which has to be addressed:
    The windows is not sizable, so if we have a font with lengthy name, then some characters will be hidden at the end.
    We can only view 7 fonts at a time, so if a document uses more that this count. We need to scroll for long way and which is a tedious task. That portion of window should be sizable as like link pallet.
    Once we accessed the…

  16. More text formatting controls needed in Buttons & Forms Text Field)

    Why are there so few controls for text formatting within the PDF Options panel of the Buttons and Forms panel (e.g. centering text within a Text Field, leading, kerning, Vertical and Horizontal Scaling etc.) than are available in the main InDesign application? Importance: the lack of text control when creating interactive pdf forms in the Buttons and Forms panel means that when text is added to a text fields, the result is a very unprofessional looking result when users type responses into the form.

    group fonts by style (script, sans, etc) as an option.
    I'm sure this has been suggested but I couldn't find it. Boy would this be handy.

  19. automatic numbering according to the position in the dokument

    The automatic numbering by means of a list should have the following function:
    Numbering according to position in the document
    That means for example, the numbering is done in ascending order from top to bottom and from left to right.
    At the moment the numbering only follows in the order in which it was inserted. This is very inflexible, especially when adding images with associated numbered labels.

  20. Hyperlink Window Add-on Feature

    I know i'm not the only one who uses the typography workspace. But when creating an interactive PDF or E-Catalog of sorts hyperlinks can be one of the finest features. The problem: editing said hyperlinks. Not the editing of the links themselves but the fact that in order to we have to have our type cursor in or on the link. What about adding a button in the hyperlink window to speed up workflow for individuals who use the hyperlinks exclusively?
