  2. Preflight to list Font type used in file.

    Please make InDesign Preflight list the type of font missing (Adobe font, ttf, otf). We are a Prepress company and when preflighting jobs, we flag to the customer that a font is missing, but is available in Adobe Fonts. If we just activate the Adobe font, it could be the wrong type. A lot of the times the client has forgotten to send the font (otf, ttf).

    An example of this is Adobe Caslon Pro Italic. My file is using the otf type, but InDesign is telling me it is available on Adobe Fonts. If I just activated the Adobe…

  3. Make PDF preset selection permanent

    When packaging files, keep the "select PDF preset" from changing to whatever preset was used last in Indesign. When I package, I always use the same settings, but that PDF preset changes based on the setting I used when just creating a proof from Indesign. I'd love to have a preset that allowed me to create two PDFs -- when I package, I make crops and no crops versions. Would be a big timesaver -- to at least keep that preset the same for packaging and then to create two versions.

  4. Packaging working file PSD's as well when packaging up files.

    I often find that when opening up packaged files from others, I find myself wishing they had also included the layered PSD's for the images. These are not included if the InDesign file only uses flat jpeg versions. It would be amazing if when packaging up a file, it could also include the layered PSD

  5. color profile black listing and/or whitelisting in preflight

    Not everything that is RGB is bad in today's print publishing. While we certainly don't want to use sRGB images if we can avoid it, there are some good options for color spaces in media-neutral design workflows (e.g. eciRGB, Adobe RGB).
    Being warned that certain undesirable color profiles are being used in linked images, and skipping those that are considered okay, should improve any modern desktop publishing workflow.
    A "missing/no profile" option should also be included, as these cases completely defeat the purpose of color management workflows.

  7. Improved spot colour assignment

    You've introduced 'useful' cloud sharing features and project integration over the last few versions but would it be possible to make assigning spot colours or custom colours easier across InDesign, illustrator and Photoshop? I waste so much time switching back and forth across apps, trying to set up the correct colour information ready for print. It's still so convoluted and always feels like I'm fudging my artwork. I end up resorting to changing all spot elements to 100% Black and creating a separate page. That's not intuitive or helpful, that's just winging it.

  8. Arc or Warp feature for conical label designs

    Please include warp features in Indesign so that labels for conical and tapered shapes can be created easily on an arc. The ability to create a curved template via inputting the top and bottom circumference of a cone should also be included so that curves can be customised. If this is not possible then possibly a PDF warp feature of exported flat designs from indesign would be useful. At present 3rd party software or plugins that offer this functionality (similar to Studio by Esko) are very expensive.

    Thanks, Justin

  9. MAKE PACKAGE FEATURE USE ORIGINAL LOCATION AS ITS ROOT.

    I would like the PACKAGE feature to default to the ORIGINAL location of the file. Rather than having to hunt around when I chose PACKAGE. I have many projects to package, and often when i choose PACKAGE FILES it will default to some previously-referenced folder—often completely different folder/location. Its a nuisance. Causes issues.

  10. Visual indicator RGB print document - large format inkjet printing AND easier creation of RGB doc

    Making it easier to have an RGB file for printing to a large format inkjet?
    (only saying inkjet made me think of a consumer product).


    Current option for creating a document is for presswork --
    Have to change the transparency blend space to RGB to take advantage of the larger color space available with the extra inks there.

    MAYBE
    The top bar that is above the document frame (has the home button in the corner) Can that be a different color to indicate if you are in a CMYK or RGB blend space?

    You already know the color issues if…

  11. Let Crop Mark offset reflect Bleed size by default

    When exporting a .pdf, I find myself correcting that value over and over.
    In most cases we want the cropmarks not to overlap the bleed, because that would make the bleed useless.

    e.g: I set Bleed to 3mm, but the Crop Mark offset stays 2,117mm

    Please let InDesign copy the Bleed value to the Crop Mark Offset value automatically.

  12. Print Layout Stacking (as it is in CorelDRAW)

    Imposition control from the Print dialog box (as it is in CorelDRAW) would be a massive time saver for those of us in print shops. I am an Adobe user in a Corel shop and I've been (slowly) working on converting them to Adobe, but this is one feature that keeps the owner going back to Corel for most everything he designs, simply because of the imposition features.

    I'm sure everyone would be happy with this feature.

  14. Background Packaging

    It would be amazing if when you are packaging a document, the packaging would go on in the background (like when you export as a PDF) so that I can continue to work on other things while something is being packaged. Sometimes packaging takes 5+ minutes and I feel like I have wasted time when I could be working on something else while it packages in the background.

    Just an idea!

  15. Repackage

    If you edit a file in a package with external links, a REPACKAGE option should put all links that are not in the LINKS folder there.

    extra; CLEAN PACKAGE should remove all files that are not used in the package.

    This would avoid having to make a fresh package after every edit

  17. Remove "Publication must be saved before continuing" workflow requirement.

    The requirement to save a file before creating a package is cumbersome. Often, I am saving a package to a new location to use as a starting point for a new project, or a creating a new separate version. Saving it requires potential alterations to be saved in the original file. Even without modifying the file, updated links or fonts might saved or broken.

    One can Save As first, as a workaround, but this is the cumbersome second step. Creating a package from any open file without first saving it should be possible.

  18. PDF of thumbnails from Print Dialog box

    I'd like to send a PDF of my 3x3 thumbnails for a client instead of printing out or sending a PDF of individual digital ads. My print dialog box says Not Supported when I try to create a PDFs.

    Seems like a simple fix. Anyone else?

  19. Zip Fonts When Packaging

    It would be great if there was an option to have fonts collected in a zip file when packaging a document. Fonts are often corrupted when transferred via the cloud, or FTP, and need to be zipped to maintain their integrity. It would be time saving if InDesign could do this automatically.

  20. Print dialog reverts to 1 copy

    1. I wish the print dialog box defaulted back to 1 copy like all other software programs that I am familiar with.

    2. As a teacher I am updating student printouts every semester. When I am ready to proof read my changes, I hit Cmd+P and walk over to the printer to find 87 copies sitting there waiting to be proofed, because I had printed 87 finished copies the previous semester. Yes, I am aware of this quirk of InDesign, but hitting Cmd+P followed by return is muscle memory. I know I have wasted several reams of paper over the years.
