  1. Apply Paragraph Styles to a Table style by column

    It would be really helpful if it was possible to design a table style that uses a particular paragraph style for each column.

    For example, I currently build a catalog with multiple tables with either 3 or 4 columns. Column 1 is an item number that, column 2 is a product name, column 3 is the price, and column 4 is the price with discount in the case there's a promo. Each of those columns has a paragraph style defined (actually two, one with white text, one with black). I also already have a table style built based on if…

  2. Find/Change Object Position

    Feature request: add object position to Find/Change so the position of repeating objects can be changed en masse. Find/Change size would also be helpful.

  3. Rounded corner table cells

    We had some Adobe people here to showcase new features in Creative Cloud. One gentleman was named Jamie Ragen. I asked them if they have any intention to create a feature for rounded corners for table cells. The reason I find this important is that some clients have rounded corner objects as part of their style, and it would be good to match that with their tables. This would create a consistent look. Jamie was kind enough to suggest I bring this up in this forum. I hope this generates some action from Adobe.

  4. Typesetter Mode: Disable Typing Toggle

    I work for a book publisher and typeset hundreds of books a year. It would be nice to have a toggle that would disable the ability to add or remove characters from a text frame. Retain the ability to adjust leading, tracking, and other formatting, but prevent accidentally adding characters to the author's text. I currently map "W" to "esc" using keyboard shortcuts, but it would be a kind of nice feature to have built in.

  6. grid edit quick access from properties panel

    alt+doubleclick is learned behaviour to edit links, for example. I would love to see this work on the properties panel, esp to tweak the grid settings, internally llinking to the preferences UI. That would save a lot of time and be quite simple to implement.

    I use about 2/3 of the CC products regularly and the heterogeneous ui functionality drives me batty. in psd i click on the number and drag, in ai it takes three clicks to do the same. WHY?!?

  7. Open more than one document per session (in Open > Recent)

    I copydesk book files using InCopy. The book comes to me in chapters, 1 file per chapter, each in a separate subfolder. I work on each book/chapters for several weeks, so I have to close/open them several times a week (and turn off my computer every day, of course). I know there must be a way to merge these documents into a book or something like that, but that's not the point here (I have to accept this workflow and manage it as best I can). Also, I'm not talking here about file tabs, of course (I open several documents…

  8. Disable embedding assets... please...

    I spend a huge amount of time in my work editing other people's artwork and the number one issue is embedded images that have been pasted in (instead of file-> place).

    I have to jump through lots of hoops to get files to process correctly.

    I'm not sure how it would work, but an option to have embedded files restricted by default, with a preference to allow it (with a warning dialog) would go a huge way to instilling the right working practice in new users.

    And save me a huge amount of time.

  9. Allow placed Word Documents to map styles within folders

    When placing a word document into indesign using the map styles feature, inDesign will only automatically map to existing styles in the document if they are in the root folder of the styles pane. If styles are in subfolders new styles of the same name are created in the root and I manually have to remove them and relink to the existing ones.

    This is a nightmare when you have a lot of styles to map, as you end up with a messy styles pallette - i'd love to create subfolders for list / headings / footer styles etc :)

  12. InDesign - Lightroom "Edit with"

    I really wish I could easily go between Lightroom and InDesign. I regularly create proposals etc in InDesign and load in images that print dark. I would love the ability to right click and edit in Lightroom. Lightroom is far better/intuitive for me for basic edits of images than Photoshop. You offer Edit in: Photoshop, After effects etc. In Premiere you offer many options but not Lightroom. Seems like it would (as a side benefit) encourage use of another of your products.

  18. Select path for text wrap for Illustrator files

    When applying text wrap to an image (PSD, TIF, JPEG) the user can select a path to apply text wrap to. This allows the user to edit the path within the image using Photoshop’s path editing tools. This is much better than InDesign’s pen for editing a text wrap path. This is probably the worst path editing feature in any professional graphics program. So it’s a good this we can edit that path somewhere else.

    you know what program has the best pen tool? Illustrator. It also has excellent operators for paths, such as expanding paths and merging them. I…

  19. Pages Window—keep active page in center area of the window

    When working on long documents, it would be extremely handy if the Pages Window kept the active page in the center of the window, so the user can see what's behind and ahead. Currently, the Pages Window keep snapping the active page to the most bottom point of the window when I tab to another reference InDesign file—that contains all of the figures, images, and tables—for copy/pasting into long file (academic book). Also, the page numbers of the last pages of the document in the Pages Window are cut off from view.
