  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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)

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Make share button neutral

    The new SHARE button is very blue. In Photoshop we have the option to make it interface colored. Same in Illustrator. InDesign dosen't.

  15. A way to lock a pages location in the window?

    Is there a way to lock a pages location in the window? If not it would be a really great enhancement!

    Such as this example where I have located the page in the center of the workspace:

    SCR-20221023-hpi.pngexpand image

    And then unintentionally I move it with in the frame:

    SCR-20221023-hq2.pngexpand image

    This could be single page or a spread.

    Having the ability to, with a shortcut, set this position for this page or any page in the document to remain in the same position relative to the window.

    Thanks for taking a moment to consider this!

  16. Find/Change saved queries: dividing line should be visible

    Currently, when Interface preference is set to dark, one can barely see the dividing line in the Find/Change saved queries dropdown. The line should adapt to the interface setting, providing full contrast!

    But better yet, the whole thing needs a structural revamp, allowing an easy-to-use user-customized FOLDER STRUCTURE and easy export/import/backup.

    Option to adjust the length of crop marks. We need to cut a lot of crop marks manually so longer crop marks would help to follow the line without cutting them off. At the moment we make the line a bit longer with a pen …

  18. Export to gif from InDesign - feature request

    PLEASE ALLOW EXPORT TO GIF FOR INDESIGN ANIMATIONS.

    I can't work out why this feature exists if we can't export it. I design google ads, web banners, EDMs etc in multiple formats with fast turnaround, in IND. But can't export a gif despite animations teasing me with all the cool things it could do.

    The best I can do is duplicate a page, flash something or duplicate 18 steps and export as jpg then stack & animate as frames in Photoshop (or create from scratch in Photoshop and use the comet tool, but that can be annoying to try to…

  19. Ratios of Height to Width

    I would like to see ratios of height to width in InDesign similar to Photoshop. In PS, when using the selection marquee or crop tool, you can set the tool to a ratio of height to width. InDesign should have that when making a frame shape and when making a page size. Designing content into frame regions that express a ratio of H x W furthers graceful design.

  20. Change Toggling Style Override Highlighter to Turn On/Off

    Toggling the style override highlighter is confusing if there isn't any override on the current page. Change the function from toggling to turning on or off.
