  1. No stupid US Letter size for UK

    No stupid US Letter, tabloid & legal sizes in New document presets (for UK version of InDesign), I know we share a language but we don't want that nonsense. Can we have more sizes we use like A2, A1 etc

  2. Open PDF

    I want the ability to open an Adobe PDF in Adobe InDesign. The ability to have a pdf file that I can right click and go to Open With -> Adobe InDesign would save so much time at my job in the print industry. It takes forever to take 1,500 pages of a PDF document and individually place them in an InDesign file just so I can use a master page to overlay a bad logo that a client used. If they could just automatically open just as though I did the whole document by hand it would be a…

  3. Why doesn't ID have a blur filter?

    My suggestion for ID is it should have a blur filter along with all the other filters available. it seems it has everything but blur. I use the gradient blur filter all the time for layouts and it's a time saver, so I would love a gaussian blur to also be there so I don't have to go back and forth from ID and PSD.

  4. Option to replace links with same name but different format

    When relinking a file, ID is able to check and relink all other links in a folder. However, I regularly have to use the relink feature to replace .tif dummies with finalized .psd files. The problem is that relink includes the extension of files in the name, so a tickable option to tell ID to change extension according to the first file you click so it then relinks all files with same name but the desired extension instead would save a lot of time.

    (Unrelated, but having a corner to drag the typing field when posting ideas would be nice.…

  5. Keep things in the grey area from moving

    When I put objects in the grey area of the workspace or use a guidelines across a spread and then add pages before it all moves. There is a reason that i've put guidelines on a certain page and objects next to a certain page, I might need them again and I certainly don't want them to be moved all over the place whenever i add pages.

  6. Arrange Documents icon

    The "Arrange Documents" icon in the Title bar is missing, I would love to have it back. It was extremely helpful. Now it wastes time to switch that from the Menu...

  7. Cross reference endnotes

    At present if you are in a particular endnote and wish to cross reference to another endnote, it is impossible to to obtain the new endnote number. While the list of endnotes shows the endnote number, it is not an option to choose just the number. So yo only get the full text of the endnote. This is different from cross referencing, say, a list of Figures where you can cross reference just the Figure and the figure number. Fo some reason the endnote number simply does not exist as a Paragraph Number

  8. Custom Signature Sizes

    We desperately need to be able to create custom signature sizes for 2-up Perfect Bound booklets. Right now the only options are 4, 8, 12, 16, and 32, which is extremely limiting. Adding blank pages to fill out extra signatures is a garbage work around leading to an unprofessional product.

  12. Export all data from the Links folder to Excel/.csv format

    Please, please, please make the entire Links panel exportable to an Excel (or .csv) file. I just spent five hours capturing all information for hundreds of placed images ONE AT A TIME. How nice it would be to be able to export the entire contents of the Links panel with one click. I know that it is do-able.

    Thank you!

  13. InDesign - General ''style sheet and Master Page'' document attached to a book

    Hi All ! I think a ggod emprouvement can comes in InDesign with this idea :

    Right now, I'm often working on catalogs with multiple INDD files.

    Right now, I have to create a ''Base File'' where I configure all the styles of each sections/chapter and where I have to configure All the master page for each section of my catalog too.

    Well, each of my indesign file contains all the styles and, in fact, all the Master Pages of each section.

    Result : I star my layout with a file of 40Mo containing 30 Master pages.

    So, you''l say…

  14. Allow designers to "group pages" for to provide easier re-organization

    Similar to grouping layers in photoshop and illustrator or styles in INDD, you should provide the folder option inside the pages panel to "group pages" to make sections easier to reorder.

  16. Include chapter number in index

    I'd like to include the chapter number as prefix for the page numbers in the index.

    Background:
    I have a book with 60 documents. Each document has another chapter number and page numbering restarts in every document at 1. The chapter number is separately styled, so that it is an eyecatcher.

    The index for the whole book is placed in document 1. For a useful index I need the chapter numbers!

    My current workaround is:
    Before I update the index I enable the option "Include section prefix in page numbering" in EVERY document. Then I update my index and then…

  17. Hochzahlen

    Ich finde es klasse, daß wenn ich Fußnoten zahlen schreibe, was ja meistens in Büchern die Quellenangaben sind, das die sich automatisch aktualisieren. Beim. Inhaltsverzeichnis geht es ja auch, bitte das für die Fußnotenzahlen auch machen. Vielen Dank 🙂 Bleiben Sie gesund.

  18. Expand the InDesign “book” feature?

    I’ve been indexing newsletters for a historical society for years. (37 volumes/years) There are 65 InDesign files in the book. Some files are by individual issue and I’ve compressed some files for each issue year. When I compile the index, several page numbers have dropped out and a few items have dropped too. Once I have the index file saved and try to exit, the software freezes. Is there any way of helping me?

  19. page numbering

    numbering of the pages can be started from a specific number but will remain in Ascending order, could you add option of numbering but in Descending order ?
    seems unusual but I am planning to make a book which you can read from both ends. thanks Tom

  20. Rules for master page

    It would be great to have rules for master page. For example if I have a template for a product data sheet with a master pager for the first page, a master page for content and a master page for the last page it would be great for InDesign to automatically apply the desired master page to the proper pages. With this option the template would be easier and faster to use
