  1. Automatically convert table cells to fillable forms for PDF

    Currently, as far as I know, adding fillable forms to a table requires drawing a text frame above each form. This is time consuming. It should be possible to create text fields from existing cells.

  2. Fit to Page

    For presentation purposes, I find myself making a Picture Frame at Document Size a lot. Would be nice to have a 'Fit to Page' function to do this accurate and in one click.

  3. Integration for Bengali (Bangladesh) Hunspell spellchecker

    For years I've been using my own Bengali (Bangladesh) hunspell spellchecking dictionary in InDesign, and I wish it was just integrated into the software. I'm the author of it and I'd be happy to provide it to InDesign. But alongside this it would be nice if the process of adding new hunspell dictionaries was easier, if it didn't need to be redone after every update; and currently it doesn't even work.

  4. a separate panel for overrides on character or paragraph styles

    The 'hover over the style' trick to display what the override is, doesn't work consistently.
    I separate info panel would speed up my work flow immensely.

  5. control blank document options when making new doc

    When i go to create a new document, I look at presets but it continually shows me 'legal' etc (american sizes) which I've never used instead of A3, which I use often. I don't understand. WHy can't it either remember or let us organise them?

  6. Align to column function

    InDesign really needs an align to column function, especially for centering objects within a column. This seems to be a really simple oversight.

  7. More options for importing text styles

    Please add extra options (in the screenshot), the two I would mostly love is only keep bold and italic styles.

    Have a lot of text every day to import from word, with lots of bold and italic noted words.

    I think a lot of people would love this feature!

  8. Paragraph Style Groups and... Paragraph Style versioning

    It would be nice to create named subversions of the same style instead of just marking the changed paragraph styles with a + sign.

    Then such subversions of one style will be saved with an additional qualifying name, and they can be quickly assigned in the right place in the text, instead of manually marking up the text.

    This is somewhat similar to the existing style group, but with slightly different functionality.

    Let's say we need to build a table of contents. In this case, each heading has its own level of hierarchy, but several different paragraph styles cannot be…

  9. Multi Level Running Headers with Numbering

    Add the ability to have multiple running headers. Specifically for multi-level lists that include numbering. Currently you can only select one paragraph style and it doesn't include numbering. It would be great to be able to create breadcrumbs for multi-level lists so you can show which section and subsection you're in INCLUDING NUMBERING. Currently the running header drops the numbering which is annoying.

  11. Borders on cells in a table

    When adding a border (a stroke) to a cell-style for a table, I think it would be very usefull you can actually align the position of that stroke towards the cellframe. Like, for text-frames or image-frames you can choose "inside, outside or in the middle". For tables/cells, you can not. I often have to use a paragraph style with a paragraph border to get "more accurate" results. My screenshot will explain better.

  17. Show error when paragraph composer cannot render lines

    All too often, I run into text that doesn't render because of some feature of the text (unsure of all cases, but examples are words that exceed the line length, common in some languages and in URLs). I have a stable of techniques for dealing with these issues, but most usually I'm poking around in the dark: the lines I'm trying to fix are not visible in InDesign; I don't know what exactly is offensive (e.g., Chinese lines were usually things work, but sometimes they don't); and the offending text might have gremlins from the source text that are not…

  18. Import/export Share for Review comments

    The new Share for Review feature is great. I've noticed though that once the file is moved, the comments are lost or no longer linked to the copy of the file. I have also seen that only one person has access to comments (although I have not tested this). This does not seem useful when you think about the workflow of an ad agency, where files are usually started by one person (say an art director), then passed along and finished by others (like a designer or studio artist). If comments can't be passed along with the document, it disrupts…

  19. Re-enable new folder keyboard shortcut when saving/exporting

    In previous versions of ID when you saved or exported a file, you had the ability to create a new folder from the dialog window using the keyboard shortcut (cmd+shift+N). This stopped working sometime after the last couple of updates, but it still works when exporting/saving from Photoshop and Illustrator. It may seem like a small thing, but I spend a lot of time creating folders to export PDFs to and it's annoying to have to use the button now. Please add this back in a future update!

  20. Change Form Fields Default Font

    The ability to choose the default font for form fields would be extremely useful. Currently, we have to modify each form field to replace the default 'Minion Pro'. This is exceedingly repetitive and time consuming.
