  1. Support headlines in separate column (sideheads)

    It's a pretty common layout to have headline paragraphs in a separate column and their corresponding body paragraphs to the right. (See attached images for examples.) This layout is currently only supported by creating tables, but this isn't semantically correct for the content.

    It would be great if InDesign supported assigning paragraph styles to specific columns, e.g. H1 spans columns 1-3, H2 is column 1, body copy spans columns 2-3.

  4. Add ability to export and import styles

    It would be quite useful to be able to export and import styles in the same way that it's possible to do this to document colours. This would add a more consistent feel to the program, and make it easier to use. It would also eliminate having to send documents to get styles to someone else, saving a lot of time packaging, zipping, etc.

  6. Enhance default page transition so it doesn't just "blink" to show the next page

    Before the v 18.0 update it was possible to add ?transistion at the end of the url to get a more smooth slide effect when turning pages. But now the pages just blink when clicking to show the next page.

    Would be much appreciated if the page turn was more smooth (and even more preferably if there was a choice of different transitions, like page turn effect).

  7. QR Code Card Umlauts do not work with iPhones & Edit raster size of the QR code

    When generating a QR code (Vcard), umlauts such as Ä or Ö are not displayed correctly on iPhones. Also it would be great if we could edit the raster size of qr codes, so you could make smaller qr codes. The protective border around the QR code would also be great if it didn't come automatically by default, because I want to transform exactly the size of the QR code and not including the border.

  8. Search QR Codes when Finding/Replacing

    I'm not sure if this is categorized correctly, but it would be nice if we are searching to fix text in a document that it also search and replace text that is used in QR codes so they don't get missed and are more easily fixed.

  9. Option to minimise titlebar (as implemented in Bridge)

    I recently noticed that in Bridge the titlebar is scaled down 50%.
    It would be good if this would be implemented in InDesign (and Illustrator and Photoshop) too.
    Being it an option in the preferences > user interface scaling would be even more practical and logical.

  10. The hope of developing a new vertical effect of CJk text

    (If you only want to read the core content, please go directly to the end of this article)

    (This document is designated to be delivered to Adobe Japan)

    ————————

    Dear Adobe Japan:

    Thank for your attention and helping. On behalf of my region, I would like to make a request boldly to your company about the new effect of vertical typesetting.

    The existing versions of indesign equipped with CJK typesetter and applicable to East Asia have only one text arrangement direction for vertical text arrangement - the first column inherited is on the right, from right to left from ancient…

  11. Document info in Indesign hyperlinks

    I am implementing a sort of voting system for articles in a magazine (readers can vote wether or not they like an article). This means I have to implement 3 (more if I want a more detailed system) links per article. It would be handy to be able to use document info in the links so I can use this as parameters. Things like "Filename" "Pagenumber" "Section name" would really make this process a lot easier. I could create one set of links with these "parameters" and copy it to any section/Page/document and none of the links would have to…

  12. Hebrew Help files still uses the term Master instead of Parent

    Under "Work with parent pages" in Hebrew Help for InDesign, while there is a note explaining the change in the term Master page to Parent page, not only it wasn't fixed in the text, the word Master is written in Hebrew letters. This is absurd.
    The correct term in Hebrew is
    דף-אב
    which in fact means Parent-Page to begin with. It was always non-inclusive language. In the attached screenshot the words Master in Hebrew are marked.

  13. Change gutter color

    Please let us change the color of the gutter guides. The Cyan hurts my eyes and is annoying in layout. I can find options to change everything else but the color of the gutter guides.

  14. Autoplay Media Workaround

    My video is set to play on page load and repeat. This works well in Chrome on both desktop and mobile. However, the autoplay option is off by default in Safari. I would like to see some way to embed my video. In this case, I am only utilizing this as a background element to add dynamics. Allow me to add animation or allow me to embed MP4 that will autoplay on all devices. Pretty please?

  15. Allow people Tagged in comments to filter by comments they are tagged in.

    We have multiple reviewers in a share for review document. When we tag them in a comment they get an email that they have been tagged. However, there is no means for them to filter comments by items they are tagged in. Sure, they can filter by reviewer, but we should also have 'filter by user tagged' OR a button that says 'show me items I am tagged in' or simply a section 'Person tagged' with a button 'Me' etc. This is valuable as it saves clients time having to scroll through comments not relevant to them and will give…

  16. Please give us option to ADJUST SPACE BETWEEN PAGES.

    I've always used PDFs when sending clients proofs but thought I'd give the Share for Review a try. I was surprised by the small amount of space between pages, with no way to increase it. I regularly send multiple design options to clients and that small space/gap between pages makes it difficult since they all seem to blend together (the eyes don't get much of a break between options). Unfortunately, this will keep me from using the Share for Review feature so I hope you decide to add an option to adjust spacing. Thank you.

  17. Update the Review Panel

    I have been using Share for Review for a couple of years now.

    First: Kudos to Adobe for the recent update to the website tools, especially the login banner and the zoom buttons.

    There are still a few things that I would suggest changing on the app side, specifically to the review panel and the window from the share drop down:

    -Can we add an update button to the review panel? Or, even better, when you save (NOT Save As) have an option to update the review during the save process? Better than digging into the share windowpane just to…

  18. Options to enter #firstpage #lastpage in PDF filename

    It would be great if you could add the option to add #firstpage and #lastpage to PDF filename. Lots of typographers require that in order to keep publications in order.
    I work for a monthly magazine and in our workflow we create single articles that we gather into an InDesign Book. This would avoid the need of renumbering ALL the publication filenames – in case something changes in the articles order of appearance – and rebuild the Book before the PDF creation (I do this via a script by Peter Kahrel that exports the Book as single documents)

  19. Ink Alias with a already used Spot but at a Percentage

    In designing a calendar, it would be preferable to design for multiple colors initially, and then if the customer wants 1 color instead, i can substitute the various colors for instead the picked spot, but at a different Tint Percentage. I can already create a swatch of the spot @ XX%, but now i want to replace "SetupGreen" with 60% 286, and "SetupOrange" with 20% 286, for example. And at the end I still want to output this one spot color, but the design now sets those elements to the ink density of that spot color.

  20. More Control Over Embeds (Option to remove the publish online button from my embeds)

    Dear Adobe.

    It's time to stop acting like the "Tommy Hilfiger of Software" and allow users "Who Pay" for your software to remove your branding from final published pieces.

    Who said this would be OK? Seriously, you don't see PPTX files trying this hard!

    ALSO... Give users control of the embed framework. Maybe we don't NEED all the controls and labels on the bottom of published items and just need the published item.

    Also... Give the user the option to change the background color.
