  2. Make the CC Library popup notes legible

    Using CC Libraries in InDesign 2022, 2023+ has been very helpful. However, I find that the notes added to the object are illegible. Doesn't matter what color I make the interface or which monitor or monitor resolution I set, when I hoover my mouse over the library object the pop out note text is a light grey on a grey background and difficult to read.

    Can we had some user level adjustment so those library items can be zoomed or to change them so the text is black with a white background while we are hovering over them?

    Thank you.

  4. Invite To Edit for InDesign

    Just wondering if we might one day see an Cloud Based Invite To Edit feature similar to the Illustrator and Photoshop feature for InDesign? I assume this might come when there is a iPad capable version for iPad? While it is not needed all the time I sometimes have to share a file to be edited by internal people in a company and it would be great if it could be shared and collaborated on so there is one master version of the file instead of sharing and then having an outdated file after they have done updates or changes.

  5. Add snippets to CC libraries

    I often have several items grouped together with a text box (like a png image used as a background for a textbox). I often need to use that group multiple times, so I usually make snippets out of them so I can easily place the whole group repeatedly. It would be FANTASTIC if I could store snippets in the CC library. I don't even really bother using CC libraries most of the time because the thing I most often need to place between documents are snippets.

  6. Place Linked IDMS

    It would be awesome if we could link a IDMS file or be able to add a InDesign file to CC Libraries and be able to place that into another InDesign file. This would be great for reusing pieces of text or layout that occasionally gets updated in multiple documents. When place the IMDS there could be an option to keep the link so if the version in the library is updated so is the placed version or to place a copy that does not stay associated with the one in the Library.

    I know it is possible to place…

  7. Make Extracted Shapes 'smarter'

    Extract Shapes in InDesign is in essence a good idea, but with a bad execution.
    And it has been like that (not so smart, that is) since its inception as the original Shapes app or even now within the Capture app for mobile.

    In stead of yielding a directly editable vector based result (with an Illustrator signature) it creates a purely black and white 'graphic' file format, which still needs a lot of handling to e.g. change the color of its vectors.

    Suppose I'd like to use the traced outlines of a flower, or the extracted rough structure of bricks,…

  8. aic

    Please Make it possible for InDesign to read aic-files, since it is a huge part of working with InDesign to Place ai-files
    .
    There can be a lot of ways to do that.
    The easiest way is just to allow InDesign to open the "gate" to the "cloud-folder" and read it from there, since it is already done from Illustrator and Photoshop.
    another way could be th make a "ghost-file" in the local CC-folder that shows a mirror or links to the file from there.

    And there is possibly a lot of other opportunities aswell.

    I just don't understand that…

  9. CC Library - PARENT SLIDES

    Being able to drag and drop parent slides from CC would save me considerable time going back and forth when a look has been altered in e.g. company templates.

  10. Allow option for Stock ID in links panel

    I would like an easy way to get a list of Stock IDs from my links panel. The stock file names are very impractical to deal with, and often I need to links of the stock images Im using to clients.

  11. Allow Extensis Suitcase to Connect to Adobe Fonts Subscription

    I understand that this isn't a specific InDesign feature request, but I can't seem to find any way to put in a feature request for Adobe Fonts.

    Until, and unless, Adobe decides to create a full-featured font management software package, it would be great if for subscribers of Extensis Suitcase that we could link our Adobe account to access fonts from within Suitcase much the same way we can access Google fonts.

  12. Update snippets/version history

    It would be good to have an effortless way to update the snippets. I usually work with lot of snippets and sometimes the customer wants minor changes. Now it's easier to create a new snippet instead of updating an old one.
    Also, the version history could be useful to track changes.

  14. Auto save every change to Creative Cloud and Dropbox

    There really needs to be an auto save like you find in Office 365 & Google Docs. I know it has a background auto recovery but I don't trust that. It would make everything easier if every action was auto saved via cloud to the original file. Of course, still keep the back up recovery save feature.

  15. Allow Para and Char styles to be imported from libraries together

    When we create a set of styles, there are both para and char styles. If I select both at the same time, I don't get the option to import them. It would be nice if we could have a single step of importing all styles in a group at the same time so users don't have to make sure they're selecting just one or the other. It trips people up all the time when they accidentally have one of the character styles selected with all the para styles.

  17. Ability to "replace" INDT files in CC Libraries

    We have a large number of template files in a series of CC Libraries. Right now, if I make an edit that affects multiple template files in multiple libraries, it can be a long, annoying process to get the new versions into the libraries. I have descriptions written for all of the templates. To replace that template, I have to import the new one, copy the description, paste the description into the new template file, then delete the old template. If we have a brand change or other change (like, "hey, it's 2021 now, not 2020"), replacing all the templates…

  18. Allow online document checking for all documents at the discretion of the user

    Often a document gets 'slightly' corrupted. It still works, but you will get warnings about errors that cannot be solved (out of date cross references for instance) and InDesign crashes on a regular basis. But InDesign itself doesn't recognise the document as problematic. It would be nice to send such a document to Adobe's servers for a repair.

  20. Refresh Adobe Fonts button

    I added 5 styles of Adobe Garamond fonts at fonts.adobe.com and went back to Indesign. They weren't showing up yet so I closed Indesign and then reopened it and they weren't there. I searched help and Google and couldn't find a solution so I contacted Adobe customer support. The Adobe agent suggested the following:

    "Please close Indesign and open fonts.adobe.com and then deactivate those 5 fonts and sign out from there. Sign in again and active those fonts and then open Indesign and check."

    By that time the fonts had refreshed in Indesign so I didn't need to do this.
