  1. Distribute Width

    I have two frames side by side, but this is relevant to not just frames. I would like to distribute the widths of these two so that they are both equal width but the total combined width is still the same, and they stay positioned as they are. I thought this would be in the align tools but I have tried many different combinations and cannot achieve this. I have used distribute widths in other programs (MS Word) and it saves so much time not having to manually calculate the widths every time and is of course less error prone.…

  2. 表格总宽与表头行

    表格總寬
    希望在表樣式中增加可固定表格寬度,通過輸入固定數字,實行在同壹個文檔中,所有表格寬度壹致。從Wrod置入的表格寬度不壹,在ID需要壹個個調整,這種重復的勞動讓人枯燥無味。在網絡上,有人寫下了統壹調整表格寬度的腳本,非常實用。但我希望這是ID中應有的功能。
    表頭行
    同表寬度壹樣,表頭行也是需要不斷從壹個表設置到另壹個,重復勞動,枯燥無味。網絡上也有人寫了壹個自動化處理表頭行的腳本,但這個腳本在遇到表格第壹行有合並單元格或第壹行某些列中有多個單元格時,會停止工作。遇到表格只有壹行時,也會停止工作。請在表樣式中增加選項,自動設置表頭行功能。

  3. Glyphs reseting

    I use "Find/Change > Glyph" to replace some Bulgarian (BGR)/Russian (RUS) glyphs to Macedonian (MK) ones. But, when I ALT click on a altered paragraph style (with + sign next to it) which contains the MK glyphs -- they are reseted to BGR/RUS glyphs.
    Please, fix it.

    Please start using the standard path location of files. I'm struggling with data merge handling thousands of images, which I would like to structure. Now I have to place all images within the main project folder, which makes it really messy.

    This is not the way it should work, especially as we use this document on several different computer - which would make us change the master data every time we work with it.
    C:/path/path/path/path/indesignproject/images/image.jpg

    Ideal would be to follow the standard OS paths which would make it work on the computer your opening the project on without having to…

  5. Publish Online search field is missing

    It needs a search box on the dashboard to simplify the search. Now you scroll for minutes and search the specific document to overwrite it.

  6. Keep non printing elements visible on screen

    A lot of documents I create, are for both printing and onscreen publishing (.pdf). In the .pdf's, I like to add a divider to spreads, to make clear that two pages are show. When setting the 'Non Printing' Attribute for this divider, it dissappears on screen. Maybe ther should be an 'Invisible' check box for that, and a 'Non Printing' option for objects that are visible, but do not print.

  7. Paste Text Only from Other InDesign Documents

    We regularly copy and paste from other InDesign documents. It is really frustrating that every time we do this the incoming swatches and styles are also pasted into the document, resulting in extensive lists of swatches and styles with similar names. Much like the "Preferences - Clipboard Handling - When Pasting Text and Tables from Other Applications - Text Only" option, it would be incredibly useful to offer this feature for "Other InDesign Documents" as well.

  8. Return the ability to place text on top of a photo in InDesign

    I've done all the current Adobe CC upgrades (InDesign, Photoshop Illustrator), and Mac OS Catalina, and suddenly I can't place text on top of a photo while working in an InDesign document. It used to be no problem!

  11. The footnote in journal layout

    Please add the ability to make the text of the footnote in a separate frame, that would be able to use footnotes in a complex, journal layout. Often there are situations when some text frames, each one has footnotes and the text of these footnotes were at the bottom of the page, separately, and the numbering in turn.

  14. Default cross-reference parameters

    I would like to able to globally set my parameters for cross references and have these default parameters be retained for all documents that I open/ create. For example, ALWAYS open as Paragraph Numbers, ALWAYS open as Visible Rectangle, etc., etc., for all available parameters... and not revert to InDesign's defaults.

  15. InDesign

    I have too many old thumbnail showing in my InDesign screen. Some are useless items, such as drafts, that I saved, but later deleted. The file is deleted, but the thumbnail is still there. I also want to have some thumbnails from 3 years ago, not go searching for them among my files later. Why don't you let us delete thumbnails of deleted files? Why do they even show up, if we deleted the file? This is a bad either/or decision we shouldn't be forced into. It's quite inconvenient. Now I'm afraid to save a draft and and have even…

  17. Get Reliable Outlook Support for Changing the Password

    If you suspect your Outlook account is at risk because someone is trying to get the personal information of yours without even informing you or taking permission from you, then immediately change the password. Take effective assistance by contacting Outlook Support team with the help of provided helpline number. At this point, I think money and time is not priority for anybody else, the main motto of those helpless customers should be keep the data and account safe and protected at any cost. That’s why, we suggest you to put a single call on helpline number and get handy solution…

  18. Simple Answers to Simple Questions

    Ya'll Know that 1 Month Ago I Asked If Adobe CC 2018 or 2019 would work with MACOS CATALINA Despite the 32 Bit Sub Apps like "Application Manager," "AAMLauncherUtil" "AAM Registration Notifier" and others. All I got was a bunch of BS from everyone including Beta Testers who could have at Least TRIED to Find out. WELL NEVER MIND You F***s. IT ALL WORKS BEAUTIFULLY WITH CATALINA OFFICIAL RELEASE TODAY. TRIED AND TESTED THEM ALL. EVEN Premiere Pro & After Effects 2018, Indesign 2019, PShop, Illustrator and others. That's All I was asking and couldn't get ONE GODDAM Answer! Thank…

  19. Zoom using only Scroll Wheel / Pan with the middle mouse button

    Today, the majority of softwares have a simply rule regarding using a mouse: scroll wheel to zoom in/out and middle button and pan with middle button clicked.
    Simply like that.
    So why only PS has the option to use the scroll wheel as zoom and the other softwares from the Adobe CC don't?
    And why all the softwares in the Adobe CC doesn't the option to use the scroll wheel to zoom without pressing Alt and pan without the need to use the Spacebar.
    If those features are implemented, most people that already use Adobe products will love it!

  20. Change spellcheck from one language to another within the same document

    The Indesign support team was not able to change the dictionary language within a document and suggested that I wrote to the developer engineers for a change.
    They tried different workarounds; Right click the misspelled word and change the language in the dialogue box. Did not apply. Changing the preferences. Did not apply either. Changing the language preferences in Creative Cloud. Did not work that one.
    I guess this is actually a bug.
