  2. Accessibility: DESPERATELY need to input table summaries in Indesign. Before exporting to Acrobat

    Accessibility: Long form print/digital/W3C-ADA designers need to be able to input table summaries in Indesign. I update an Accessibility Document 2-3/year. +325 Tables/25 pgs. This one project that is coupled with a 240 page digital catalog is the bain to my existence. Having to redo the Table Summary work every interation is TORTURE.

  3. Title.indb as a text variable accessible for any document part of the book

    Title.indb as a text variable for any document part of the book. Sometime when a book is printed (especially direct to print proof) it's difficult to know (remember- follow) which version you're at without putting the info inside the book itself. Having a text variable that updates automatically would be nice, you place it - you forget it - one less thing to check when printing

  4. TOC - Update page numbers only

    Update page numbers only in TOC (like it is possible in a common Text Processing software) would save a lot of time, as we often insert styling and manual line warps in the TOC for aestetical reasons and have to redo it as TOC has to be refreshed and overwrites everything.

    The suggestion in this forum to create Cross-References would also be a nice solution to this problem.

  5. Deselect files in Book-Panel

    It would be nice if there was an option in the book panel to deselect all book files. If there are a lot of files (in my case over 100), it is very difficult to do this. You have to click very precisely between two entries, which can be very tedious. A menu item "Delesect all" in the book menu would therefore be very desirable.

  7. Floating sticky notes

    Floating sticky notes that I can make myself, for example "Photos completed" "Text revised" "Needs consult" etc. that can be grabbed and stuck to pages, especially for long documents and that remain visible/accessible on every page.I want something I can just grab and stick, grab and stick, etc. rather than create/type a unique note for each page.

  8. Generative AI features for document design and styles application/revision

    When can we expect some more comprehensive/advanced baked-in AI features in InDesign? E.g. apply this doc's formatting to this unformatted one, apply these styles likewise for the next 40pgs, take my branding library and apply it to this new doc, review this doc and flag stylistic inconsistencies, etc. Seems like when and not if. Looking forward to the day!

  9. Inline Anchored Graphics

    Inline anchored graphics should have a "release" in the menu that is not grayed-out. Custom anchored graphics have this, but inline does not. This should be remedied.

  10. nest pages

    The pages panel is the most ridiculously cumbersome thing in the world!

    I make digital planners and regularly work with documents that are over 2k pages long- there is SO MUCH SCROLLING OH MY GOD
    Please make pages nestable where we can group them together and expand or hide as necessary like photoshop layers folders.
    if designers are working on a book there's absolutely no need to see the entire book all the time - being able to work chapter by chapter is so much easier to manage than scrolling for a month!

    Also the scrolling in the pages panel…

  11. repeat action for specified pages

    while working on a document, it occasionally becomes necessary to apply a transformation to each page in a sequence of pages, for example, rotating an instance of a linked file on every other page, scaling the content of certain pages to prepare for printing in a slightly modified format, etc.

    It would be very useful to have a button that performs what is essentially the "repeat last action" or "repeat sequence again", but rather than applying said function to a selected object, records the marquis selection area as part of the sequence, and perform the selection and action on each…

  12. Hello! Can you please add «Exception» feature in «find and replace»?

    I use InDesign for book layout; there are so many times that i feel i need a feature to exclude some words when I search to replace. if there be a special feature like a list to exclude the characters or words for not to search them, it's gonna make it so much easier.
    Thank you.

  13. Different footnote styles allowed on a single page

    The ability to use different styles of footnotes on a single page (asterisk and numbers) used in footnote styling. ESSENTIAL for academic publishing.

  14. Add more Styles (paragraph and character) to the auto Styles pack

    I really loved the new Style Pack feature. I spend a lot of time mapping long documents and the Auto feature helped heaps. I know that it is recent, so I am wondering when we would be allowed to add new Styles to create a more complex hierarchy for the documents. Thank you :)

  15. Book :: Tell when someone else has a chapter file open on OneDrive

    I know that if you store the INDB file and the INDD files on your server, InDesign allows multiple people to open the same INDB file simultaneously. In that case, the Book panel has a rudimentary feature that will tell you when someone else has one of the chapter files open. Can we add this functionality for people that work off OneDrive Locations? With every one working remotely we can't be VPN'd into servers due to file lag.

  18. Add open documents to a book

    Allow documents to be open when adding them to a book. This used to be allowed. Now you must close all documents before adding them to a book, then re-open them again. Waste of time.

  19. Make it easier to find the option for 4-page spreads.

    The User Guide needs to include information about creating 4-page spreads. For book editing, seeing 8 pages at a time is great (on a larger monitor screen, which as a book publisher I use.). The Page function allows a 4-page spread, or more, when the user disables the Shuffle setting and drags and connects 4 pages together horizontally in the page view. Fine. I found this out on some non-Adobe graphic design forum by luck. This wasn't anywhere in the Adobe InDesign help or user information that I could find. Include this in the User Guide! Improve it so it's…
