  1. Shortcut for active text frame out port click

    Looking for a shortcut that would act the same as clicking on the out port of the active text frame. Rather than having to click on the tiny icon in the bottom right corner, a keystroke would speed this process up.

  4. Ai panel and short cut automation

    A workflow efficiency feature based on user behaviour and pointer travel distance the Adobe product suggests to relocate and add panels that would reduce the klicks and mouse movements, show and construct keyboard short cuts to speed up the work flow for you.

  5. UI – Some Buttons are missing InDesign CC 2020 (OS X)

    Hello,

    I’ve updated InDesign to the newest version 15.0 (InDesign CC 2020) on OS X.
    And some buttons in the top window border are missing like the percent and the GPU rocket.

    Is it possible to put these back?! Or do I have to change it anywhere in the menu? Can’t find it.

    Best
    Sascha

  6. Better place for Alignment in Paragraph Style editor

    Alignment is in the tab 'Indents & Spacing' - not very logical - I have to search for it all the time (not a daily InDesign user).

    Suggestion: replace the Justification tab by 'Aligment & Justification''.

    And in the dialog itself, the alignment has to chosen from a pull down menu.
    Why not the icons as used in the toolbar (and a pull down for the extra options)?

  7. Solo Mode for Properties Panel

    Okay, I love the new Properties panel, and the fact that it is a work in progress. As it gets longer, instead of scrolling too much, could there be an option of putting the sections of the Properties panel into Solo Mode similar to Lightroom?

  8. Please add Chinese language support. A global economy pleads for this.

    I need to create bi-lingual content in English and Chinese. The current English language interface does not support this, (though the program could be downloaded with a Chinese language user interface in the Asian region.)

    With the global economy we have, the ability for English speaking users to create bi-lingual content with Chinese or Japanese characters is needed.

    Such ability is a basic function of most of the software I run.

    Adobe is behind the times in this regard.

    We look forward to this being addressed in the next update.

  10. Scroll Bar Access

    Panels should not overlap the page vertical scroll bar. Instead they should snap on right side of the pasteboard [Offset the width of the scrollbar] allowing access to the scrollbar. saving you have to close panels

  11. Implement smooth(er) scrolling on Windows

    This may well go hand-in-hand with the GPU acceleration request. Currently, mouse-wheel scrolling is stepped I fairly large increments, even when using a high-end pointing device such as the Logitech MX Master 3. This makes for significant fatigue when navigating a large document.

    The behavior in MacOS, even without GPU acceleration enabled is a LOT better. Please add some kind of control over the incriment size at least, or idially a truely 'smooth' experience. Illurtrator and Photoshop are much much better, but I spend my life in InDesign. Affinity Publisher on Windows has managed it.

  12. Zoom using only Scroll Wheel / Pan with the middle mouse button

    Today, the majority of softwares have a simply rule regarding using a mouse: scroll wheel to zoom in/out and middle button and pan with middle button clicked.
    Simply like that.
    So why only PS has the option to use the scroll wheel as zoom and the other softwares from the Adobe CC don't?
    And why all the softwares in the Adobe CC doesn't the option to use the scroll wheel to zoom without pressing Alt and pan without the need to use the Spacebar.
    If those features are implemented, most people that already use Adobe products will love it!

  14. Responsive palette sizing

    It would be nice if palettes would resize more intelligently.

    Having the Swatches palette shrink down to 2 swatches high while having 3 pages of empty space in the Pages palette or having to click through all of the states of Align to access Distribute because I had to collapse it enough scroll down 5 spreads is annoying.

    Having some form of dynamic sizing with priority given to cursor:hover (perhaps weighted by which tool or object is selected.... priority to relevant palettes) seems like it might help.

  15. Allow us to minimize the application in a window, like any other reasonable, modern day application. I mean, seriously, wtf?

  16. Remove unnecessary banner in CC Libraries panel

    Every time, after any new start of InDesign (14.0.3 and in previous versions too, on mac), an useless info banner is showing when opening CC Libraries panel. Only once at session, but every day again and again. Please, REMOVE THIS...

  17. Re-separating the tool menu

    You combined the tool menu in the right panel, but now I have to scroll down to the align section every time I want to adjust something. In InDesign, I'm mostly creating forms or schedules where I realign things constantly. It was more convenient before. Either put align at the top of the panel, or re-separate the panel. I can't drag align to the top of it either. If I could even just reorganize it, it would be better.

  18. Conditional Text Pallet

    Please add the "Show and Print" option next to the "eye" in the "Conditional Text" palette in the form of check-boxes, so that everyone can choose which condition should be printed and which only displayed. Now you can only do this in bulk for all defined conditions.

    This will be very useful in the arrangements between the editorial office and the dtp.

  19. Alt shortcuts T-E-T

    ALT T-E-T used to activate 'Change to Title Case' but now it doesn't make it. Is this an error?
