  1. Ignore Fit to frame options when replacing images whilst maintaining size

    When I have the option "Preserve Image Dimensions When Relinking" selected, I would like it to override any Auto Fit to Frame options.

    Right now I'm working on a catalogue that has several thousand pictures and all the frames are set to Auto Fit to Frame. When I relink the images (with the high resolution files) they all change size.

  2. Default cross-reference parameters

    I would like to able to globally set my parameters for cross references and have these default parameters be retained for all documents that I open/ create. For example, ALWAYS open as Paragraph Numbers, ALWAYS open as Visible Rectangle, etc., etc., for all available parameters... and not revert to InDesign's defaults.

  3. Simple Answers to Simple Questions

    Ya'll Know that 1 Month Ago I Asked If Adobe CC 2018 or 2019 would work with MACOS CATALINA Despite the 32 Bit Sub Apps like "Application Manager," "AAMLauncherUtil" "AAM Registration Notifier" and others. All I got was a bunch of BS from everyone including Beta Testers who could have at Least TRIED to Find out. WELL NEVER MIND You F***s. IT ALL WORKS BEAUTIFULLY WITH CATALINA OFFICIAL RELEASE TODAY. TRIED AND TESTED THEM ALL. EVEN Premiere Pro & After Effects 2018, Indesign 2019, PShop, Illustrator and others. That's All I was asking and couldn't get ONE GODDAM Answer! Thank…

  4. Grep panel

    Please create a palette for grep (like paragraph or character style). For example to add various style to single grep. Also add the option to link to grep non only character style, but also paragraph style and object style. Example: use a grep to find a text and formatting the text box. Thanks

  5. Interface

    To the "Paragraph Styles" Tab (and any other Tab that has something like a list, layers, links, etc.) allow the user to use different colors for every row (like the "Action" Tab in Photoshop), but something the user can choose. It would make more easy to identify some styles that you use more often or are more important.

  7. Create index subentry structures with a drag-and-drop feature in the index window

    It would be very useful if InDesign could convert the mouse pointer into a hand pointer when hovering over the index entries displayed in the index window so that the user can manually grab and move selected index entries under other entries—and thus create faster subentry structures.

  8. Stop auto pushing clients into Bridge

    Bridge to me feels like a piece of software I don't actually need.

    Would it be possible to either:

    1. Add the ability to block Bridge from auto installing
    2. Add the ability to remove and or change the short cute that initiates Bridge from downloading and opening, as its only one key away from outline text.
    3. Both

  13. Search like in Microsoft Word

    Microsoft Word's current search feature is much more powerful than InDesign's. You just type in a word and it searches for it. You don't have to pick forwards or backwards, you can see the matches in the search pane in context… lots of other ways it's better than InDesign's search. Not sure how much of that is covered by patents, but the more you can emulate MS Word's search ease of use, the better.

  17. Indesign feature

    Please add in "outline stroke" (which is an illustrator function) to indesign. We need this for when a printer requests that all strokes are outlined.

  18. Multiple footnote referencing

    I thought of a way to implement multiple references to the same footnote without breaking HTML links between footnotes.

    You could allow for the creation of multiple footnote links from the text into footnotes that point to the same footnote, with a sequence of different secondary designations. For example, footnote 1a, 1b, 1c... all could point to Footnote 1. Then, in the footnote, you could open with 1 a b c ..., with the different letters providing alternate linkbacks to the other places in the text.

    This is how Wikipedia handles multiple referencing to the same citation, so there's precedent.…

  19. Enable utilization of graphics card

    Why doesn't InDesign utilize my expensive graphics card? ****** performance surrounding display quality, and other performance issues. This software is much too expensive to be without GPU acceleration. This impacts thousands of user's daily workflow, wasting time we could be spending on design and inspiration research.

    Before you release new, useless features that barely work, how about doing some real improvements to the software. Make InDesign (and the rest of the suite) properly utilize our expensive graphics cards.

    In the meantime, (or nevertime, as it seems to be) be very clear in the hardware requirements that a graphics card is…

  20. Improve 'Hide New Layers When Updating or Relinking' tick-box

    Hide New Layers When Updating or Relinking (unticked) can be very annoying when I actually need the new layers to be shown when updating and relinking, but InDesign warns with a Confirmation Dialog box everytime for every page that is being relinked - it is so annoying, please can you change this tick-box in Preferences to Ask/Never/Always or something like that please, and have this option in the Dialog box so that the relinking and updating process is smoother/quicker/quieter.

    Thank you :)
