  1. Add the option to create continuous/smooth curves when rounding corners.

    A smooth or continuous curve makes a more smooth transition when rounding the corners of squares or rectangles, so the result is more like a squircle. This eliminates the "bump" where the straight line hits the corner and is more pleasing to the eyes. Sketch has this option when rounding corners and it would be fantastic to have it in InDesign.

  2. Please add InDesign as a supported Creative Cloud file type

    I was very excited to learn more about CC files and libraries during Max. I wanted to start implementing CC files to take advantage of versions and file sharing. It's very disappointing to learn that InDesign isn't currently a program that's supported for CC file saving. Please add it.

  3. Importer une même image dans plusieurs blocs, en une seule fois

    J'ai plusieurs blocs, sur la même page, et je souhaite y importer (si les blocs sont vierges) ou remplacer (si les blocs ont déjà un visuel), en une seule fois, la même image.
    Actuellement, je dois sélectionner un à un les blocs, ou un à un l'image à remplacer. C'est long !
    D'une sélection multiples, dire que je veux importer autant de fois la même image.

  4. Exporter/Importer son espace de travail personnalisé

    Dans Photoshop/Illustrator, nous pouvons exporter/importer notre espace de travail et pas dans InDesign. Dommage car avec une mise à jour comme celle de 2021, je passe plus d'une heure à réinstaller tout mon espace.

  5. Make the Set Tab Order... panel resizable and interactive elements be allowed to be grouped into Sets

    Make the Set Tab Order... panel resizable. When there are numerous interactive elements on a page, the tiny Set Tab Order panel is cumbersome to use. Make it re-sizable for convenience. Also interactive elements should also be able to be grouped into Sets in the Set Tab Order panel for easy sorting.

    When importing formulated cells with defined name from excel to InDesign, cell defined name does not appear in the dropdown.

  7. Add a 'none' option to the Buttons and Forms > 'Type' drop down selector.

    In cases where blocks show as text Form fields that one wants to remove the Form function from them - the process now seems to require deleting and re-creating all of the affected elements.

    With a 'none' option, they can all be selected and simply changed from being a text Form field, to a simple object.

  8. Enable color palette folders to move from the bottom of the swatches list

    I want to be able to move the palette folder I'm working from to the top of the swatches list. If I have a document that has several colors, I have to scroll to the bottom to find the folder with my template colors.

  9. Find and replace also looks at Layer Names

    I use layers for multiple versions and when modifying layer names (as a callout on the appropriate layer) would also like the Search and Replace Function to look at the layer names as well. Example - often same files are used from quarter to quarter and it is necessary to update the date on layer or a particular code included in the layer name.

  11. Anchored object - Contorna con testo

    Object inserted in the text surrounds the first line of the paragraph with the inline or above line option but does not work on the first line of text with the custom option. Activate the surround with text even with the latter option. Thank you

  12. Search Adobe Fonts

    Next to the search bar for Adobe Stock would be a nice place to search for fonts as well. Just my opinion.

  13. In the Arrange option, may we please go back and forth from a multiple to one and back again without having to close one of the windows?

    Last year I could switch views in "Arrange" from 2 docs to one, back and forth. Now, I have to close one to get full screen with the second and reopen if I want to see them both side by side. Can you please switch back to the old method? This is a time-waster and frustrating, as it used to be in place. Thank you.

  14. size of Effects dialogue box

    Would love it if the "Effects" dialogue box could be reduced in size so it doesn't take up so much of my workspace; I commonly have to zoom out the object I'm working on in addition to dragging the dialogue box as far off the screen as possible just to preview the changes I'm attempting to make.

  15. Avoid Widows and Orphans in Paragraph Styles

    It would be great to have a check box or even a separate tab for Widows and Orphans in Paragraph Styles. Right now you have to use GREP to get this to work or control them manually. It would be a huge time saver to add this option into the style settings. These are well-known and widely used typography rules that should be a part of InDesign.

  16. Save to Server vs cloud option

    We save all of our files on a shared work server and keep track of versions and final files all on a shared server not through the cloud which also allows all non-adobe ID users to review files as well. We would like to be able to use the share function as we already use it in Acrobat but would love to select where the review file is stored.

  17. Make layered PDFs Illustrator compatible

    Currently, layers made from PDF exported in InDesign are not preserved when the PDF is opened in Illustrator. Would be real helpful if they were.

  18. scalable page dimension markers

    Currently I am designing large wall pieces that require me to produce the pages at 50% or even 10% of scale and I need to put dimension info for export, for final approval. Currently there is no way to tell indesign that the scale is not 100%, so I have to make the markers by hand. Can you make an export feature that allows the user to define scale?

  20. Create Citations and Bibliography automatically

    When is @InDesign going to release the feature to create bibliography, citations, and references as in @Microsoft365 (#Word)? We use this software to write scientific papers/books but it looses when it comes to cite and give references to the paper used in our work. Help us! We have to do it the hard way, what wastes a lot of time and we can get lost easily.
