  1. 字取り機能の改善リクエスト (improvement to "jidori" feature request)

    日本語版独自の「字取り」機能で設定できるのは「文字数」に限られているため、不便な場面が多いです。
    文字数以外の設定はテキストフレーム/フレームグリッドに関わらずフレームグリッド設定に依存します。これを知らずに「字取り」を使いこなせていないユーザーも多いです。

    添付画像 1 に示したのは、私が不便だと感じたケースの全てです。そして( )の中には私の仕事での主な使い道です。
    本文とはサイズの異なる文字(見出し段落に字取りを用いる場合が多い)
    字間の広げられたフレームでの挙動(おまけ)
    ストーリー内に配置された、文字サイズの異なる表(一般に表の文字サイズは本文より小さい場合が多い)

    私はこれらの問題を、アンカー付きオブジェクトを挿入、
    あるいは「字取り」を用いずに、
    ホワイトスペースを挿入、トラッキングで調節、文字前後のアキ設定
    などで代用しています。
    つまり、とても不便なのです。

    今回、代案を考えてみました。なかなかの時間をかけました。
    皆さんの賛同が欲しいです。

    添付画像 2 は文字パネルのスクリーンショットです。
    従来のグラフィカルなコントロールを廃止し、フライアウトメニューに格納することで、より詳細な設定を可能にすることを提案します。
    これは「縦中横」や「割注」、あるいは「下線」や「打ち消し線」と同様に扱うこととします。

    添付画像 3 は設定ダイアログのアイディアです。
    まず先頭に、他の機能と同じようなチェックボックス。
    これで「字取り」をオン/オフします。
    次に、ラジオボタンで
    1 文字サイズ、字数、字間 の3要素で設定、
    2 字取りの幅(縦組み時は高さ)をダイレクトに設定
    を選択します。

    いかがでしょうか。

    少しの難点は、下位バージョンのアプリと互換性が全くないことです。
    しかし、いいと思いませんか?

    jidori feature improvement request

    The "Jidori" function unique to the Japanese version can only be set to "character count," which is inconvenient in many situations.
    Settings other than the number of characters depend on the frame grid settings regardless of the text frame/frame grid. Many users are unaware of this and are not able to use the "Jidori" function well.

  2. sort styles alphabetically with optional case sensitivity

    Allow the option to toggle case sensitivity on/off when sorting styles alphabetically, so that one can use case sensitivy to namespace styles.

    For documents with a long list of styles, I namespace them so that styles used accross the document are sorted first, then those specific to a section, then those specific to an element of a section, like so:

    _body
    INTRO _body
    INTRO BOX _body

    I name sections and subsections in upper case to easily distinguish, but it actually is the prefix "_" that gets sorting to lay the hierarchy.

    It would be nice to just resort on case…

  3. Add option to "Find this style" just like "Find this colour"!

    I would be great to have the ability to find a style (Paragraph, Character or Object) straight form the panels (Ctrl + click on a style) to quickly find obscure and unused styles without having to open the Find/Change panel.

    This option is already available to find a colour in a document and it is very useful, so it would only be logical to do the same for styles, no?

    It would be especially appreciated when one takes over a project that’s already been started... with styles galore!

  4. Paragraph Styles & Character Styles sort by color/label

    It would be great to be able to color-label a specific paragraph style from the paragraph styles panel. It helps visually when working with lots of paragraph styles. Also, this applies to character styles as well. Perhaps even the groups within the paragraph styles panel could be color-labeled. This feature is already in Photoshop and even Premiere Pro has a color-label feature so for all of us working in InDesign it is a critical feature.

  5. Create (H) Header and (P) Paragraph style on same line to produce a TOC and 508 Accessible document (Run-in Running variable))

    Create (H) Header and (P) Paragraph style on same line that will pickup the styles when I produce the TOC and make the document accessible.

    I understand this can be done in FrameMaker.

    If a programmer can make it happen in FrameMaker, they should be able to make it work in InDesign.

    Thank You, Linda

  6. Paragraph Shading should have the option to rotate a gradient swatch

    It is very important to allow the user to rotate the gradient in paragraph shading. I am sure it is child's play for you developers.
    Thanks.

  7. Swap Dropper

    Instead of simply using the eye dropper tool to copy the style from one item to another, it would be cool if there was an option to swap the styles between the two items.

  9. do not overwrite Object Styles when making a group to make it accessible

    When applying different object styles to elements in InDesign, they are "deleted" when I make a group and giving the "group" another object-style (for example: a picture and a text, both have separate object styles - i group them, and then want to give the group an object style that puts it in the right position on my page)
    As soon as I apply the Object style, to the group, the individual object styles are "overwritten". I can manually reapply them in the group, but thats not efficient.
    Especialle to make an accessible PDF, the feature of different Object styles…

  10. Please make it possible to reorder the parent pages.

    Simply have a option to drag and drop the parent pages. I think this used to be easy when they were master pages , or maybe I just assumed this - but not now.

  12. Paragraph Styles Larger Tab Markers

    I use windows 11 with a display settings at 125% scale and monitors set to 3440x1440 resolution. I use a magnified mouse cursor as well. When using the Paragraph Styles Tab feature, the tab stop markers are so small it makes it very difficult to select them to adjust their position. I would like to see the User Interface designed with larger tab stop markers or a dialogue box that allows for input of the left align and hanging indent settings.

  13. Add extra options to the "Add Bullets" panel, like search, resize, favourite, etc.

    The "Add Bullets" panel is tiny and super limited. It should be possible to resize, search and even favourite your preferred glyphs to make the process much more efficient.

  14. To change the dictionary-language in paragraph styles for the whole document/all styles at once.

    It would be great and timesaving to change the dictionary-language in paragraph styles for the whole document/all styles or selectedt styles at once. A checkbox like in effects "Global Light" would be great. "Global Language".

    I had my styles mostly based on each other. But still have to change 4-6 Paragraphs for each language everey issue of a magazine.

  15. Easy drag and drop to base one text style on another

    I would love for an easy drag and drop to base one text style on another in the paragraph and character style palettes. The idea is to drag a paragraph style (para) that you want to base on and drop onto another style (parafirst or paralast). I work on book designs with lots and lots of style tags. It will save designers so much time to do it all in the palettes instead of opening up each style and scroll through the style list every time.

    In addition, similar to how we apply parent/master pages to pages, it’d…

  16. Allow for bullet numbers to display both left AND right

    I am a script editor, and formatter. I'd like to be able to create script heading styles that are industry standard. This involves have the scene heading number (which can be styled as a bullet) both on the left AND right of the page. ie 'both' sides. Current we can only style them on the left (unless there's a way to do this I'm not aware of?).

  18. Have a character style option to lock to baseline grid / unlock from baseline grid

    I typeset books and leading often have to adjust leading to accommodate page breaks, especially across a spread, so it is important to have this flexibility. I use alternative paragraph styles as a workaround, but this is clunky and time-consuming. Vertical justification doesn't always give the best result.

  19. Object Styles Positioning from inner margin (spine)

    For the last few years or from as long as I can remember, I am having to have two styles for each action. So the most simple action I do is a Full Page bleed image box. On the outer margin it has an additional 3mm. This is set from the inner margin out. However I have to always create to styles, one for the left and page and one for the right. It would be so useful to have 'from Spine' as an option as a reference point.

  20. Nested bullet styles

    Bullet lists should have nested styles similar to Numbered lists and let us choose which symbol to use for each bullet level.
