  1. Frame Fitting Panel

    Fairly self explanatory. Frame fitting options are one of the only frequently used features that don't have their own panel, which can cause UX issues for various reasons. Solution, give them a panel.
    Thanks

  2. 1. Warping fonts easily like Aldus Typetwister or Typstyler. Preset by user for easy re-use. 2. Valuable for better design.

    Adobe already owns Typetwister when it bought Aldus. Just incorporate it into InDesign. Welcome back to 1990.

  4. The "undo" button: aka- Control + z

    Please allow to undo (ctrl + z) more than three times. It's frustrating to not be able to go back more than three times, especially when you're working on a longer document and you have to close out of it because InDesign won't let you fix something you made four corrections ago.

  5. Thank for new versions - but the scroll button the is a dull grey atop another shade of grey is not visible enough for quick work -

    i have worked as a designer for many years - please consider colour and contrast in the scroll feature for pages. As i try to proof a manuscript against another file, i must constantly search for the scroll tab in order to read more text - even a lighter shade of grey or something complementary would help the worker.
    thanks

  6. Merge index page entries

    Indexing often end up looking like this:

    Smith, John 37, 38, 39.

    It's tedious to have to make the first entry be for the next three pages and delete the other two. Why not have a menu option to "Merge consecutive pages." It could be run near the end of the indexing process when the page breaks are unlikely to change.

    Even better would be an option to for consecutive page entries to create a new entry that makes the first the start of the indexing and the last the end of it. That'd keep the range right even when…

  7. Radically improve indexing efficiency

    This is a general suggestion. Indexing is one of the most tedious, time-consuming processes in ID. Look for ways to make it more efficient. Here are some suggestions.


    1. When a user selects text for indexing, automatically look up that text in the index listing and display those that match. Often the text with say "John Smith" but his name is in the index as" John H. Smith." When a user selects text with "Smith" in it, have a window that displays all entries with "Smith," allowing the proper one to be selected.


    2. Clicking to open lists under first letters is…

  8. Automatically update the preview in the index panel

    Currently, when users make a change to an index entry the result page range listing is not automatically. Users have to select Update Preview from the Index panel. Why not make the index list automatically update whenever a change is made?

  9. French dictionaries

    The Académie française updated spellings in French in 1990, and textbooks in France are now teaching the new versions. But InDesign does not inherently support the new spellings. The only way to activate them is by drilling down into the files and adding Hunspell manually. ID does support much more recent German reforms, though. After 29 years (which is literally older than ID itself!), it's time for Adobe to support this.

  10. Sensei, use it to align text and shapes

    Hi all,
    Could Sensei be used to align text and shapes? Seems like a no-brainer to me to let AI fix it.
    An example , text in a circle.
    Now if you want to align it, you first need to Frame to fit the text. Then you need to select both the textframe and the circle. Then align them horizontally and vertically. ( on some frames you need to nudge the text up a bit to really align then horizontally.
    AI would could align both boundingboxes in less then a second.
    Please add it :)

    Rob

  12. Adobe Sensei Kerning

    It would be great if Sensei could be implemented to replicate and improve manual kerning pair choices based on user preferences or behavior over time.

  13. Master Pages need to have one more control

    Designing a brochure, at times i need the footer and header design etc. Master page is a huge tool was a huge help but i think it need one more feature. Master page should have the power to bring forward or entirely back of any design in layer.

  15. Paragraph rule will not appear on top of anchored objects

    Currently an applied paragraph rule will not appear on top of an anchored object in a text box. According to one of the Adobe experts this is a default of the program.

    Our catalogue has a country heading line of type followed by an outline of the country. The graphic of the country is embedded. Visually it appears underneath the subsequent text two or three lines of type.

    The paragraph rule at the end of these two or three lines of type unfortunately appears underneath the image even though the text appears on top of the image. I would like…

  17. IDML file icon in Windows Explorer almost indistinguishable from INDD file icon

    I don't know who was the genius behind this change of InDesign file icons, but it's very time-consuming, most of the time i will open the IDML file instead of INDD file or viceversa. Probably for people working with few files is not a big deal, but when you work with tens of files, it's a hassle to constantly need to check the file extension. It cannot be changed from Explorer, you need a third party tool to do this on Win 10, which i don't wanna use.

  18. Utilize paragraph shading for text messages with improved functionality

    The new paragraph shading feature would be fantastic to use for laying out text message conversations in books, but needs a few tweaks to make is fully functional. Text messages in books is becoming very common.

    It used to be that you had to create shapes and anchor each in for a text message. Now you can use Paragraph Shading defined in the style for left side texts with no adjustments, but because right side text messages need to have the "bubble" shape aligned right, but the interior text left aligned. My solution is (see sample file):
    Create three base…

  20. package indesign containing other indesign documents linked

    I've a INDD doc containing several INDD docs linked. When I do package, if I select the make IDML option, only the main doc is saved as this, not the linked docs. I need to manual convert each doc (or open all docs and batch convert).
