  1. Bookmark highlited

    Once I set a bookmark on a page, I would like the bookmark name to be highlighted in the bookmark panel when I'm on the page. Just like how when an image is selected, the name is highlighted in the links panel.

  2. Google Photos and Docs Integration

    It would be great if you could place photos or text from Google services - Google Photos, Google Docs, Google Drive. InDesign would simply need to integrate the Google APIs for those services, then it would be seamless to import these objects - better yet would be supporting of links, so edits to Docs could be updated in InDesign the same way changed photos show update status of linked photos.

  3. Free rotation of sheets

    Hi.

    InDesign allows you to rotate the sheet at 90º angles to the right, left and 180º.

    It would be nice to be able to also rotate the sheet freely, as for example allows Photoshop.

    Sometimes when you design, although you can rotate 90º in 90º, you end up having to twist your neck.

    I hope you find the idea useful

    .Thank you.

  5. Name spreads for export

    When we export as png or other formats from indesign we always have to rename all our exported pages and spreads. Over and over again if we make changes and export again. Why cant we have the option to give a spread or a page a defined name for export. Example, I always have to rename documentname(15) to banner_560x500 and does this on all 15 exports. Please look into it ❤️

  7. Please add a lock button to Document Setup dialog

    Add a lock button to the page sizing in the Document Setup dialog box. That way, I could make dimensional changes to a document size without busting out the calculator. THANKS

  9. Double truck - object that spreads across gutter

    Ability to link object that spreads across double truck to both pages so that when document is viewed or exported as single pages, the object appears on both pages.

  10. Viewing bleeds on two-page spread

    Would be nice if any objects that bleed off the binding edge would be cropped to the page edge when viewed as a two-page spread.

  11. InDesign needs to be able to work with files that are 100% cloud-based

    Our company has moved all of our files to BOX (cloud-based). InDesign's links do not recognize URL so it defaults to our local drive.

    We had to reach out to a company called Silicon Publishing and purchase a connector (plugin/extension) to deal with all the links that need to be cloud based (a true URL path).

    Why had Adobe not addressed this and why are we having to purchase plugins to make the software work correctly?

  12. Adjust book cover spine

    Please give us back the former option of layout adjustment (see screen capture) !!
    It was so simple and so easy to change page format and objects adjusted well !
    For exemple when doing a book cover :
    before, you could change the page width of the spine, and if there was a colored frame on it, its width would adjust too (but not the height if the height of the page didn't change)
    Now, if you change the page width, the object is scaled (height and width) wich is absolutely counter productive : now you must manually rescale and…

  13. Change PDF page number / .ai artboard number without placing the file each time

    In a similar sense to the Object Layer Options, it would be awesome if there was a context menu option to switch to a different page number in .pdf and different artboards in .ai files.

    This way when inserting a multiple page PDF For example, I can copy the object then go into the context menu and select the next desired page. Currently I spend more time looking through the OS filesystem to place the same PDF again.

  14. Preview document images in finder

    Mojave can't preview INDD files in finder...only shows a generic indd icon for the thumbnail. Other adobe apps show generic icons in finder until you click on them, and then they show a larger preview. I was able to preview at any stage in finder on older operating systems. This is a HUGE downgrade. (I worked with a tech in this, who confirmed it was a software issue and not a setting to be changed on my system.)

  15. Option to name pages

    Hi, I think it would be really handy if the pages would have a rename feature. Rather than them being labelled page 1, 2 etc in the Pages tab, the User could label them as needed.

  17. Be able to set a keyboard shortcut for everything in menus

    Duplicate spread isn't an option for something you can set a keyboard shortcut for (which I would use all the time if it was!) and I notice that a lot of other ones aren't options either

  18. Organise Black Document Presets

    I would like to organise the Black Document Presets by dragging and dropping them into the position that I want. This would save time because I never use the four top presets.

    I would use this feature by dragging A4, A5 and A3 to the top of the list so I don't need to click on View All Presets.

  19. Datamerge with several different datasources for different versions

    Version: CC19 (14.0.1) on Mac OS 10.13.6 (High Sierra)

    When there are datamerge-placeholders that are not in the datasource, the export aborts and you have to delete the placeholder.
    When these placeholders are on invisible layers the same happens.

    In my case, sometimes i get different datasources for different versions of the same document so i put the different version on a new layer and make it invisible until i use the corresponding datasource for it.

    Maybe a choice for the user to continue nontheless (only when placeholders are on invisible layers, to protect the user from using the wrong…
