  2. Picture form field for mac and overapping with another field

    It is also an absolute concern of mine that you can also create image form fields, even if there is a logo on top of them, for example. Currently it is only possible (and only via windows) to create an image field without, for example, a bar with a font or a logo overlapping.

  6. Stroke cap and paragraph rule styles

    It would be incredibly useful to have the option for more control over the end cap in stroke styles/paragraph rules. For example, in Illustrator there is the option to use a softened end cap as opposed to a straight cut off, but InDesign only has a straight edge option, making it difficult to build an elegant line style without importing it as a graphic (this feature is sorely lacking in pursuits such as book design). The stock line styles feel garish or clunky and it would be oh-so-nice to be able to edit these or have more options to choose…

  7. Show traditional version names in CC Desktop

    In the CC Desktop app, when you are looking at Apps and seeing version numbers, it's confusing to users when you see InDesign v16, which is CC2021, or v15, which is 2020. If the labeling could be InDesign 2021 v16.0, it would be less confusing to users. We have a huge number of users in our company and when we make the switch to each new version as a group, people look at v15 and don't know what that means. For InDesign, in particular, we tend to lag a while while our plugins are updated for the newer versions. So…

  8. Please standardize key commands between the Adobe apps, specifically Indesign and Photoshop

    type layer commit in PS: Cmd Enter
    type layer commit in InDesign: esc
    (the above is maddening, since in PS, esc undoes everything in the type layer)

    scaling images in PS: with latest update, no need to hold Shift to scale proportionately
    scaling in Indesign: you must hold Shift to scale proportionately

    I'm sure there are others but these 2 are my personal grievances.

  9. Archivo físico además de publicación online.

    Además del link que se obtiene en "publish online" muchos clientes quieren archivo físico animado e interactivo. Actualmente sólo se puede publicar mediante link o app, y el pdf está muy limitado para animaciones ¿Adobe, de lleno en la era digital y no se puede crear archivo "físico" animado e interactivo desde Indesign?. El EPUB da muchos problemas así que no es válido.

  12. Generate photoshop file the same size as page with bleed.

    Like you all know, as a designer, we have to fill the background of our Indd file with some sort of background. That implies, opening photoshop, remembering the sizes of that file, manually imputing it, then calculating the bleed after that.
    Wouldn't be great if you could just generate a photoshop file the size you need in a single action?

  13. When saving a file, have the cursor default to before the ".indd" suffix.

    This used to be the case a few years ago. not sure if this is an apple ox issue or adobe.

    When saving a file, have the cursor default to before the ".indd" suffix, so it's quicker to rename files.

  14. finder window in Big Sur doesn't remember size

    In Big Sur when I place a file, the finder window that pops up is always the same small size. I have to reposition it to the size I need to find the appropriate folder/files every time. Perviously InDesign would remember the size of this finder pop up window.

  15. Text wrapping around image should honor Corner Options

    See this forum thread for details: https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/wrapping-text-around-a-graphics-frame-with-corner-options/m-p/11776379

    There are two issues - a feature request and what I think is actually a bug (related to the workaround for the lacking feature).

    The primary question I asked in the forum feels like a bug to me, but I'm told it should be considered a feature request. So I request that in terms of text wrap, graphics frames generated by placing an image would behave the same as graphics frames created by the frame tool. If an image is placed and then Corner Options are applied, text wrap set to Graphics Frame…

  17. Add interactive feature back to buttons when converting to PDF

    It used to be that buttons were able to be interactive when exporting an InDesign design to PDF, which was especially essential when prompting readers to turn to the "next" or "previous" page. Why does it default to making them a) invisible and b) not interactive? The functionality is still there for hyperlinks, but only after you select them to be, which is also a contradictory default. If I add a hyperlink, clearly I want someone to click on it. Seems like we went back a step in functionality after the latest upgrade.

  18. Text box

    Instead of having to click and dragging to make a text box you should be able to click just once to create a text box, like in illustrator.

  19. Outline font in indesign

    When you outline font in indesign it should not adjust the stroke weight. Once you outline the font it should stay the same. Also add an expand feature would be nice in indesign so I don't have to keep jumping from program to program.
