  2. Options to individualize QR Codes

    It would be nice to have some features to individualize QR-Codes.
    For example to put a grafphic/trademark in the middle, rounding the edges, dots instead of squares... There could be many Options.
    "qrcode-monkey" has some good options to individualize QR Codes.

  3. I need in InDesign these tools: 1. in the «Path» I need «Outline Stroke 2. “Perespective” tool 3. the new “Generate” like what in Illustrat

    I do almost all design and drawings in the InDesign program, so I found these tools in Photoshop and Illustrator. It is nice and ok for me not to leave InDesign and do all the things I need for printing and layout.

    I am using InDesign Eastern language. (The Generating, is still not in the Eastern Version!!).

  4. apply height or width to several image frames at once

    Sometimes I need to make a slight adjustment in size to several images in a piece, and they all need to be the same size. If there was a way to select them all and then type in the height/width to apply to each selected item rather than all of them as a whole, that would save a lot of time of having to select and size each one separately.

  5. Resize Frames & Objects to Preset Aspect Ratios & Sizes

    It would be great to have a feature where a placed graphic, text frame or object could be quickly resized using the contextual menus to a choice of standard aspect ratios (4:3, 16:9 etc..) there would need to be options to crop, resize content proportionally etc.. Add the ability to add your own user ratios and physical size dimensions like the Photoshop crop tool and it would be very powerful.

    For example: it would be pretty slick if users could drop a 5:7 image onto their page and then right click to quickly crop to 16:9.

  7. Align from page edge

    Among the various types of “Align to:”, in addition to “Align to margins” and “Align to page”, it would be useful to also have an “Align from page edge”, considering the edge as an element to distance from. In this way, we can avoid putting empty blocks beyond the page margins to distribute the spacing of objects across the entire page.

  8. Fonction break apart pour les elements de texte

    Bonjour, en tant qu'éditeur de feuillets publicitaires une fonction qui me manque dans Indesign est celle de pouvoir "casser" un grand paragraphe en lignes, c'est à dire que, lorsque je place mon descriptif de tous les produits présents sur mon dépliant je sois capable de le démembrer en lignes, contenant chacune le descriptif d'un produit, snas être obligé de copier ligne par ligne de mon ensemble de descriptifs pour constituer ainsi un bloc de text séparé pour chaque descriptif (cette fonction est présente sur CorelDraw sous la description "break apart" - CTRL+K).
    Une autre foction qui irrai de paire avec…

  11. Multiple caption metadata items on one line

    At the moment it appears I can create captions with more than one piece of metadata, such as copywright year and artist or Folder 0 and name. But each of these must be on its own line. There is no way to have all the data one one line unless I generate a static caption then use Find/Change.

    We should be able to make captions with multiple metadata tags inline without requiring a linebreak.

  12. Text Variables should support super/sub script

    Text variables should support incidental superscript and subscript. Currently, even with using GREP in the paragraph style which defines the super- or sub-script and placing on a master page, the text variable does not support these formats in actual placement on document pages. Very elementary feature that should be supported.

  13. vertical rule for one side of a text box

    Column rules are great, but why can't i add a column rule to a text box containing just one column of text? Is this a bug?

  14. Align to page when only one item selected!

    I usually have 'Align to Selection' as my default. Wouldn't it be great if when only one item is selected that the align buttons use 'Align to Page'

  15. Toggle "Preview" ON by default

    I'd like to see the effect of what I'm doing e.g. in the Paragraph panel by default. Can't find this in the application or on Google. This could easily be an option in the Preferences.

  16. Links Panel: Show Exact Matches only

    When re-linking files, add an option to show "Exact matches only". Adobe Premiere has this. So when you're looking for the file you're re-linking, all files are greyed out except for the one that matches your file name.

    Find the Premiere equivalent in German attached!

  17. Align Stroke to Outside option by default

    For me the default Stroke Alignment setting should be Outside. I am always using boxes and frequently need to change the stroke widths. Since the default setting is Center alignment, this resizes the box, which I can't imagine anyone ever wanting. There doesn't seem to be any way to change the default stroke alignment to Outside, so I am constantly having to change this in the Stroke window. Which means we must have the Stroke window open simply because we cannot set the Outside as default. InDesign 19.2, Mac Ventura.

  18. More options when resizing a layout

    If I need to resize a page/layout using Document Setup, ideally for me, all of the existing content would remain at the top of the page, so a new, taller page size would add more space at the bottom, or if I wish to shorten a page, empty white space would be removed from the bottom. InDesign 19.2 centers all content vertically on the new page size, which I can't imagine anyone would ever want, forcing the unnecessary step of moving everything back to the top of the new page. You could add a Photoshop-style grid icon to show where…

  19. Hide all text and picture box borders when hiding Guides.

    I wish InDesign would hide all faint text and box borders when hiding the document Guides. I am forced to go to Overprint Preview to hide those, which slows down the design process, because Overprint Preview mode is very slow and not at all smooth to scroll through multiple book pages to preview designs without the distractions of seeing any faint text boxes. I don't see this ability in any of the Settings menus. Indesign 19.2, Mac Ventura 13.6.4
