  1. arabic support

    Add support for toggling right-to-left text in all versions of InDesign.

    Do not hide/remove/restrict it for users who don't use an african/middle-eastern language version of the program. Having to install multiple InDesign-versions depending on what document you work with is stilly. Is there any reason for this at all?

    We have designers that occasionally have to set documents translated to Arabic. Right now this is near-impossible as we use an English version of InDesign.

    It appears the support is there "under the hood" and you have just hidden it in the UI, since I can get "right-to-left" paragraph settings in…

  2. Relink from CC Libraries Sorting

    When relinking assets in InDesign using "Relink from CC Libraries" , the CC Libraries panel that shows isn't capable of having it's sort order (date modified vs alphabetically) changed nor is able to show groups - please fix so it has the same view functionality as the regular CC Library Panel.

  3. Maintain Scripts when updating

    My Adobe Indesign was recently updated to a newer version. Every time this happens I lose the scripts that were installed to make the program more productive. It would be great if you could update to a newer version of InDesign and not have to reinstall your scripts every time you update the program.

    When you update Indesign it can remember your preferences. Why can't it remember your scripts as well.

  4. Problem: Text frames suddenly become empty

    When working on a +400 pages book, and when I'm in the middle of simple text editing (most of the time; any editing that causes an increase or decrease in lines), suddenly one text frame (other than the one I'm working on) become empty, and all text will move to the next text frame. To solve it I have to edit some text; like adding a paragraph then deleting it. And another fix is by resizing the text frame!!
    My version is 2020 last update. Book is in Arabic.
    Cannot understand why that is randomly happening!

  5. Find and Search

    Perform multiple Find and replace with saved queries. I get a lot of standard documents that require the same find and replace. There isn't a record action button like the other Adobe products so it would be great to have that or run multiple queries at the same time.

  6. Trackpad zoom windows

    Seems really backwards that I cannot zoom in with my trackpad on windows. I mean, it works flawlessly in even Microsoft Edge. Just seems like something that was flat out forgotten.

  7. Option to set up a template to open with a default file name

    Add a check box when saving an indesign template that would allow you to create a default file name.

    For example, when I create a business card template for our company to use, I save the template as "Business Card (Name)" but when the template is opened it opens as "Untitled-1"

    Having an option to save the template to open as "Business Card (Name)" but also require the designer to use Save As when they are finished entering the information would help to ensure file naming consistency for a specific type of file across the whole design team.

  12. Snapping priority (ignore objects when in snapping distance from guideline and do not snap to outline)

    When both options are active:
    - snap to objects
    - snap to guidelines.

    InDesign behaves like schizophrenic making bad choices. And it is impossible to place objects on level.

    Also InDesign snaps inner / outer outline of object to the guide, so when you have thin outlines (below one point) you never know to which side of outline object will be snapped and it will always be on different level than object without outline. And it creates mess.

    Each time when there is a guide InDesign should snap to it in first place, ignoring the objects, and also object should…

  14. Could a 'find' function be added for documents published online?

    Add a 'Find' function to document published online.
    Something similar to PDF, when someone is reading the document they can 'find' (search) for a particular word of interest - could this function be added to the view window for documents published online?

  17. Use Nearest Available Font Weight Instead of "Unavailable" Error

    When switching fonts, instead of generating an "unavailable font" error when a font weight doesn't exist, automatically use the closest available weight based on the previous setting.
    For example, when switching from a font that has Black to a font that only has Bold or Regular, simply use the closest available weight e.g. Bold, rather than generating the "unavailable" error.

  20. 【If this function can be realized is too important to Chinese ancient books!】如果能实现这个功能对中国古籍太重要了!

    I'm using InDesign 2020 (Chinese). Some of China's ancient books and historical materials are arranged vertically from the left, this function is very important for the collection and imitation of Chinese ancient books! For the program, the implementation of this function should not be too difficult, but in fact not, it is a pity! I really hope that the next version will be available for this feature. It would be great if it could really be done, so thank you! This new version will be the most sold in China!

    我使用的是InDesign 2020(中文版)。中国一些古代书籍和历史资料是从左侧竖着排列,这个功能对收集和仿制中文古籍非常重要!对于程序来说,实现此功能应该并不会太难,但实际上并非如此,真可惜!真的非常希望下一个版本将可用这个功能。如果真能实现这功能那真的是太棒了,那就太感谢了!这个新版本将会是在中国有史以来Indesign卖得最多的一次!
