  1. InDesign should feature the same shape corner handles as Illustrator

    It works so well! And has been adapted by XD. I'd love to see those little circular rounded corner handles in InDesign for shapes.

  2. Managing multiple tabs in InDesign is an abomination

    Managing multiple tabs in InDesign is an abomination. Firstly, the tolerance between reshuffling tabs and pulling a tab out to a separate window is far too small. Try doing this on a 4K screen, move your mouse a couple of millimetres up or down and all of a sudden your tab is now it's own window. Worse still is that when you pull it back into the tabs, it goes right to the back.

    This leads me to my second issue. The lack of any way to reshuffle tabs that have multiple tabs in between. There are two ways to…

  3. Page numbering

    Provide an easy application of styles to include zero as a second digit. For example, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 etc.

  4. Revert back to exact screen placement after Screen Preview (shift+w)

    When pressing escape after screen preview, the view resettles on the middle of the page (but keeps the zoom level) rather than resettling where you were working. This makes flipping between normal and screen preview mode a bit less seamless, as you have to keep scrolling back to the part you were working on after previewing.

  8. Applying multiple cell styles to a cell

    Ability to apply multiple cell style to a cell, for example, I want column 3 to be filled with grey and I want to apply Upper and down stroke which I have cell style for it and column 4 only required upper and down stroke but no fill. Instead of creating multiple keyboard shortcut and multiple cell style i could create one cell style which to fill the cell and then another to but lines.

  9. Password Protection

    Provide the option to password protect documents published online through Indesign....WHY? Because, often designers (in any industry) need to send proposals of prototypes or designs to suppliers and producers and the information inside is sensitive and strictly confidential. The Adobe InDesign publish online feature is a great way to distribute online pdf presentations to people quickly, however, the no password protection option lets it down. Other platforms, such as Vimeo, allow you to publish content that is private....so should Adobe Indesign.

  10. Document Time Tracking

    This idea has already been posted, but it's from 2018 so I would like to post it again:

    Document Time Tracking would be a feature to see the dates / time spent on a document. It could be accessed in the documents info panel. This feature would be useful for client invoicing and project managing especially in advertising where time is money.

  11. The Hyperlink panel defaults to http and not https. Can this be changed?

    The Hyperlink panel defaults to http and not https. Can this be changed? Nobody is using an unsecure connection method nowadays...

  12. Add option to ignore images or fills when drag-selecting using Direct Selection tool.

    Often dragging a select box over frame corners will pick up interior fills or images and move them when all I want is to move the frame corners or vertices.

  13. Group Layers

    It would be an easy but valuable addition to be able to group layers in InDesign like we can do in Photoshop. That would allow various "versions" of a document to be turned off an on, as well as organizing more complex documents. We can group paragraph styles and swatches – why not layers? Palette items should be groupable across the board, for a consistent interface.

  14. Touch type tool for Opentype feature does not show up while setting the paragraph in "Adobe World-Ready Single-line/ Paragraph Composer"

    Touch type tool for Opentype feature does not show up while setting the paragraph in "Adobe World-Ready Single-line/ Paragraph Composer". The script, in this case, found while using Thai with the Opentype font with alternate glyphs.

    We can access the feature, but have to go through the top right hamburger conner to select the stylistic set manually. It is disturbing work-flow while typing in bilingual languages; Thai and Latin.

  15. Better UI Scaling

    I use InDesign on a laptop that gets docked for use with multiple screens and removed from the dock for remote work. When the machine is docked the UI scale is perfect. When I use InDesign after disconnecting the computer from the dock the interface gets very small. If I switch to the larger scale factor the interface gets very large. Illustrator seems to scale on its own just fine.

  17. Select All by paragraph style

    I'd love to be able to select all text in the document by paragraph style. So, select all text with "Heading 1" paragraph style. And then I could copy and paste it into a different document. It would help for revising documents, so I can see the topics all together and reorder the outline of names.

  18. Enable more functions in right click

    I wish right click would bring up more options - for example, right clicking a linked file should give me the option to 'reveal in finder' but I have to open the links pallets to get that. It would improve my workflow no end.

  19. Copy and Paste Effects

    It'd be great to be able to copy and paste effects from objects, especially between multiple documents. This would be similar to Photoshop's ability to copy layer effects.
