  2. Editable SVG graphics from CC Libraries within InDesign

    Being able to import and edit SVG graphics from CC Libraries within InDesign.

    For instance, a company has 200+ icons that they use on documents.
    Being able to edit within InDesign, after placing the icon from CC library, to edit colours or backgrounds that the SVG is on.

    CURRENTLY available to do within XD and Illustrator, but directly within InDesign, would be AMAZING....

  3. Adjust image frame to pure white background

    I do a lot of shoes catalogues, where white background is used on images.
    It would be nice to have a tool that detects pure with and adjust the frame to that area.

    I do have clipping paths on the image, but it crops also the natural shadow.

    Something like the PS magic wand, where you can select the offset of the frame.

    ID will detect all the exterior pure white and adjust a frame around it with an offset of Xmm.

  4. QR Code Card Umlauts do not work with iPhones & Edit raster size of the QR code

    When generating a QR code (Vcard), umlauts such as Ä or Ö are not displayed correctly on iPhones. Also it would be great if we could edit the raster size of qr codes, so you could make smaller qr codes. The protective border around the QR code would also be great if it didn't come automatically by default, because I want to transform exactly the size of the QR code and not including the border.

  5. A way to lock a pages location in the window?

    Is there a way to lock a pages location in the window? If not it would be a really great enhancement!

    Such as this example where I have located the page in the center of the workspace:

    SCR-20221023-hpi.pngexpand image

    And then unintentionally I move it with in the frame:

    SCR-20221023-hq2.pngexpand image

    This could be single page or a spread.

    Having the ability to, with a shortcut, set this position for this page or any page in the document to remain in the same position relative to the window.

    Thanks for taking a moment to consider this!

  6. Ratios of Height to Width

    I would like to see ratios of height to width in InDesign similar to Photoshop. In PS, when using the selection marquee or crop tool, you can set the tool to a ratio of height to width. InDesign should have that when making a frame shape and when making a page size. Designing content into frame regions that express a ratio of H x W furthers graceful design.

  7. coupure de mot

    Hello,
    In french, when there is a word wich have a "-" inside, can you forbid InDesign to put another "-" to devide it between 2 lines ? (see picture, the word "beaux-parents" has 2 "-" wich is a mistake)
    This problem happens frequently in french text.

  8. Allow the 'import options' dialog window to be scaled up

    When re-linking or placing a layered file it would be useful if the relevant dialog window can be scaled up. This would make it easier to select which layers are imported, especially when importing artwork that has a large number of layers (e.g. an Illustrator file). At the moment a lot of scrolling is needed especially if each layer needs to be imported into InDesign individually. Would be useful for workflow to be able to scale up the dialog window to see all layers at one time, and then select/de-select layers them from there.

  9. After placing a .ai file into a rectangle frame, resizing rectangle frame would resize Artboard in Illustrator

    This should definitely not be default behaviour, but e.g. a checkbox under "show import options" asking to "link artboard size to text frame size, when placing a .ai file, would be nice.

    When opening the fiel in illustrator, a warning dialog coudl appear asking "frame size has been changed in indesign, do you want to change artboard size accordingly?"

    I repeatedly work with layouts and .ai graphics, that need to first be drafted, then layout changed, and after this the graphics slightly refitted to new sizes. Its a bit tedious looking up correct widths and heights for artboards from indesign.

  10. Convert missing and and no longer existing hyperlink in to embedded image

    When editing an existing file made by someone else who no longer has access to the links used in the file, I want to be able to pin the images to the file so that I can save the pdf without image resolution changes.
    I tried embedding the images in the file but this option is not clickable for the missing links.

  11. ZOOM increased and other small, significant, improvements

    1. Is it possible to have higher zoom percentages in indesign in the next relase? 64.000%
      (often for reasons of precision you need more zoom but there is no more than 4000%)

    2. Structure view as in illustrator

    3. increase snap accuracy

    4. Greater controls for vector drawing (as far as possible for ID)

    5. Enter and edit "Simple" vectors directly into ID

    6. Automatic bitmap / vector tracing as in AI

  12. Launch Art

    Hello everyone. I have a question:

    Why have all of the InDesign launch images been illustrations, when InDesign is a page layout app?

    I'd love to see some cool magazine covers/interiors, or book or package design! Wouldn't that be more appropriate?

    Just sayin' 🙂

  14. Allow custom bounding boxes to scale with object

    Often I will customize the bounding box / text wrap shape of an object/image so that text wrap follows the shape of the object/image. For example, if I have an image of a violin with a transparent background, I want the text to follow the curve of the violin, not a box. The text wrap feature works great.

    However, once the custom wrap shape is set, the wrap stays like that even if the object is resized. For example, if I decide to make the violin smaller, the wrap stays exactly where it is, meaning I have to readjust the…

  16. Content Placer Tool Place Into Existing Frame

    The behaviour should be exactly the same when i place a document with the Place... option. Hold the alt key, the pointer shows two opening brackets to indicate the Paste into function and Done. Currently I cant place collected content into frames. I always have to click and drag new ones.

  17. Rule above, Role below: Width columne except text

    Please make it possible to create a line below (paragraph rules) that is as long as the column, but the text is not underlined.

    This would make it easy to create form fields

  19. Make gifs great again

    • Allow a preview of a live GIF while designing - currently when it is placed into a deck it is static and only reviewable by publishing online.

    • Allow a choice of the GIF thumbnail that becomes the still image when an offline version is downloaded. Currently I'm at the mercy of whatever the very first frame is in the entire GIF sequence.

    • Better yet, make Adobe Reader able to play gifs so the 'offline' version doesn't have to be a compromise of the original intention.

  20. Have two systems of unit measurement operate simultaneously, depending on feature and function

    I would like InDesign to operate simultaneously in two unit of measurement systems. I would like to be able to work and view typographic measurements such as point size, leading, paragraph spacing, baseline shift, and drop shadow amounts in Picas/Points; but at the same time see my page size, margins, object dimensions, column widths and such displayed in inches, or mm, or even pixels, according to my need. I don't want to have to switch back and forth to easily SEE and reference measurements in control panels. I want some to display in one system, but others to display in…
