  1. Display a button's multiple actions/events

    If we are able to add multiple events to buttons, the only way we can see those actions is to pro-actively switch to that event (via the Event drop down in the InDesign Buttons and Forms panel) or by exporting an interactive PDF and viewing the actions in the button's properties dialogue box in Acrobat.

    Ideally, if an object is turned into an interactive button, the panel should change to reflect that. Within the new space, if a button is applied an action via the event drop down, line items should appear similar to the way actions aggregate. Another method…

  2. Preserve zoom when selecting a PDF comment

    Selecting an imported PDF comment causes the document to zoom to fit, which in cases may result in the font size being hard to read. One can zoom in then, but when clicking on the next comment it will zoom out again. Frustrating and onerous. If the designer could control the zoom and it remained where she left it that would make using this great feature easier.

  3. Data merge: Classification Master pages

    Es solle möglich sein, über die Datentabelle für jeden Datensatz eine Musterseite zuordnen zu können. Ähnlich wie QR-Code und Images bekommt die Spalte ein Sonderzeichen, in der die Bezeichnung der Musterseite steht.
    Nach der Datenzusammenführung hat dann jeder Datensatz die entsprechende Musterseite.
    Translation google: It should be possible to assign a sample page for each data record via the data table. Similar to QR code and images, the column is given a special character in which the name of the sample page is written.
    After the data merging, each data record then has the corresponding master page.

  4. Alternating Cell styles

    Can you create an option to alternate your table rows between cell styles that you've already created? Perhaps applying the "Apply ____ style, then next" feature that is used for paragraph styles?

    I just feel like there needs to be a better way to integrate your cell styles within your table style options. It would make table formatting much easier.

  7. Be able to cross reference images as well as paragraph text

    Be able to cross-reference images as well as text so that when you click the lead and the end the cross-reference shows up better.

  9. Add sliding / scrubbing value inputs like in PS

    Add the feature from the PS-GUI, where u can change values, by mouse-down on the corresponding icon and moving the cursor.

  10. Keyboard shortcut to adjust paragraph indents

    I'd like to be able to quickly adjust the left, right, first and last line indents of my paragraph using a Quick Apply or a custom keyboard shortcut.

    I find it strange that it doesn't already exist, given the countless other basic adjustments available in the shortcuts panel.

  11. We need "smart" title case in the change case menu

    We need smart title case, with prepositions and conjunctions not capitalized. It's ridiculous that a script or third-party plug-in is required. This is a publishing program! InDesign can create a table of contents—it should be able to do it correctly.

  13. Import Text Variables using .csv

    Currently the only way I can see to import a list of text variables is via another .indd. It's tedious to manage a ~10,000 text variables (prices in a catalogue) within the text variable window in InDesign. It would be great to manage these variables in Excel and then be able to import the .csv into InDesign, to change the variables instantly.

    The import table feature is a good way to do this, but only if the prices are displayed in a table. My prices are all separate text frames.

    Thanks
    Nick

  15. Locking Tab Bar

    It would be really helpful if the user had the ability to lock the tabs bar under the rulers in inDesign. It's an annoyance to have it floating and having to re-open it constantly. It would be nice to have the tabs panel located right underneath the ruler and then give the option to hide it or show it.

  16. Option to set Overprint at 0 % color value

    I would like to be able to set objects which are colored with 0% color value(halftone) to overprint.

    I need this function for example to color objects with the color varnish and to get correct color separations. Because everything that is colored with varnish should overprint.

    Until now I correct this in the PDF I export from Indesign. But it would be desirable if this setting could already be made in Indesign.

  17. Give one-sided versus two-sided option in print dialog box

    Most software allows me to select one-sided versus two-sided printing in the print dialog box. Indesign requires that I go into the printer setup to make that change.

  18. QR WiFi Code generation

    QR codes can embed a WiFi password and network information to automatically join the network when scanned. It would be great if the QR Code Generator in InDesign could add this type of QR Code into its capabilities!
