  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Enlarge printing on controls

    Enlarge the print on the control panels so that people with low vision can see and work on InDesign and Photoshop. My vision is failing and I publish a 32 page magazine on InDesign.

  8. Popup message if INDD document opens as "read only"

    We work on a cloud server (Nasuni). There is a slight lag (up to a few minutes) when a user opens a file and the lock file is synced to the cloud server.

    Occasionally, someone will be able to open a file that another user already has open. When that happens, in the document tab, the document shows as (read only). But there's nothing beyond that small text in the document tab to tell the user they are not working in a file they can save (and that someone else has the source document open).

    What I would like to…

  9. When updating links (like from Illustrator) being able to select 'apply to all’

    When updating imported files we get a warning that e.g. the layers are altered. In the concerning warning boxes (extra if multiple pages are involved) it would be very handy to have a checkbox to ‘apply to this or to all'.

  10. Turn off preflight by default

    Since we work via Internet-connection, working with longer documents is a mess because after every move you make, the preflight check starts over and over again. The bigger the document, the longer it takes until you can finally start working again.

    I would like to have the opportunity to have preflight turned off by default. Only when I need it, I would like to turn on preflight.

  11. Make Extracted Shapes 'smarter'

    Extract Shapes in InDesign is in essence a good idea, but with a bad execution.
    And it has been like that (not so smart, that is) since its inception as the original Shapes app or even now within the Capture app for mobile.

    In stead of yielding a directly editable vector based result (with an Illustrator signature) it creates a purely black and white 'graphic' file format, which still needs a lot of handling to e.g. change the color of its vectors.

    Suppose I'd like to use the traced outlines of a flower, or the extracted rough structure of bricks,…

  12. Make spellcheck change colour when complete

    When checking a story of several thousand words it's easy to miss the phrase 'Spellcheck complete' at the top of the box when you're busy looking at the page itself. Up to a couple of generations ago the box would change colour when complete which you could see out of the corner of your eye. Very handy – please bring it back.

  13. Indesign creates an incorrect href for Acrhive.org links

    When InDesign creates the href for a link from Archive.org it does not href to archive.org, but to the dead link.

    example: the typed link is
    "https://web.archive.org/web/20220320173121/https://freewheelingeasy.com/
    creates an href for "https://freewheelingeasy.com/"
    rather than the correct href of "https://web.archive.org/web/20220320173121/https://freewheelingeasy.com/"

  15. Direct selection tool selects everything - in 90 percent of the cases is unusable

    The direct selection tool in inDesign and Illustrator is almost unusable due to it is selecting everything it touches.
    It would be much better to have an option to select the points of the currently active object. I have lots of stacked objects, I want to work with one of the objects, but as soon as I draw a rectangle over the desired points, EVERYTHING is selected everywhere. This makes the tool almost unusable, because it is unable to make a normal selection, it's too greedy.
    At least in Illustrator there is a thing "isolation mode" but in inDesign the…

  16. Apply Table Style and Cell Style on Word Import

    The ability to apply table and cell styles to imported Word documents – and for them to be properly formatted and mapped to those styles rather than just have the appearance of the styles – would be extremely helpful.

  18. WEBP - Please add an export option in InDesign to save as <FILENAME>.webp

    Please add an export option save as webp.

    Hello, I do a lot of my flyers and promotions in InDesign and have been exporting them as PNG for years. So instead of me saving the file as PNG then opening the file in Photoshop and exporting as webp, having an export webp feature in Indesign would a better streamline workflow.

    I've read that webp is a better solution for web graphics Webp in 75% lossy format is a better looking and compressed file than PNG it will save loading times on my website and eblasts.

    See my PS exports from…

  19. Allow (an) object(s) to have mutiple builds.

    Allow (an) object(s) to have multiple builds (transitions). Allow them to build in, transition, and build out. Right now the functionality is archaic and limiting. KeyNote dwarfs Indeed on its functionality with animating objects.
