  1. InDesign CC 2019, eGPU enablement on Mac

    There is no eGPU enablement with Indesign!
    Illustrator will work with eGPU, Photoshop will, but Indesign will nor recognize an eGPU which will slow down every design process.

    Please add instant eGPU support.

    Mac Mini 2018
    Blackmagic eGPU
    OS X 10.14.6

  5. Export alternate layouts with layout name

    It's been mentioned before, but seriously, it would save a lot of time, especially when exporting assets for social media that use the same size all the time. And that the export layout name is used in all exports nor only pdf.

    Illustrator is able to do this =)

  6. a better way to make texts on circle or other form path (spline) for pictogrammes

    when you have to do it but make a way to have it the most editable way because you have to make it to a lot of different languages. Maybe be a more efficient way with rules on path to automatically inverse it and center it on the center of the path and maybe an option to what part of the text is on one side and what part is on another actually if i do it correctly you often need two path one for top one for bottom part of circular text and when you whant to change one…

  7. Remove plug in

    I used an add-on module for years that I will not need anymore. Without the current version of this plugin, I can not package the files anymore. Therefore, I would like to permanently remove the plug-in from the file. For that I can not find a solution, except to first create an IDML file.
    I'm looking for a simpler solution, because I have several hundred files that are equipped with the module.

  8. export vectorized multi layered pdf option from indesign and other CC app

    Actually you can export vectorized pdf in pdf 4 version using transparent infos to help the automatic vectorization but, you cant have it with separate layers.

    Some pro printers dont want editable texts on pdf we send to them, but there is no simple way to do it.

  9. Underline options > color should be TEXT COLOR by default!!

    I have to import Word files in InDesign many times and the text looks black but it's not. I try to select the whole paragraph and change it to black but the underlines remain RGB! So I have to select each one to change it to TEXT COLOR. Why can't it be text color by default...or be selected with the whole paragraph and be changed together with the text??

  13. Apply master page according to merge field value

    When using data merge, I'd like to be able to apply master page from merge field.

    Ex.:
    If my merge field value is "Value A", i'd like to apply Master page A.
    If it's "Value B", Master page B.

    It would be a great way to improve customer customization.

  17. Editable hyperlinks in imported .icml files

    Please let us edit hyperlinks in an imported .icml. We can edit paragraph/character styles as we wish since they are not counted as content. But the same applies for hyperlinks, or at least anchor text/pages hyperlinks.

    As of now whenever you import an .icml with an anchor text hyperlink the destination disappears.
    Incopy is useful also for people that update multiple documents where only small parts of text differ while the rest is the same, but must be update anyway so you end up only editing one of the very long files instead of 15 and you're sure that you…

  18. Remove unnecessary banner in CC Libraries panel

    Every time, after any new start of InDesign (14.0.3 and in previous versions too, on mac), an useless info banner is showing when opening CC Libraries panel. Only once at session, but every day again and again. Please, REMOVE THIS...

  19. Pressure Sensitive Brush Pen (Vector brush to use with pressure sensitive pens)

    Many professional artists use some sort of pressure sensitive pen like Wacom (Cintiq) or the much cheaper and equally good HUION tablets).

    InDesign has a vector pen tool, with which professionals can write, scribble, design and create personalised unique graphic images, with a freedom that no other text/font ever can proviude. But this vector pen tool does NOT support pressure sensitivity.

    Enabling pressure sensitivity (think of it as a simplified Brush Pen tool of illustrator) will allos professionals to directly in our most beloved favorite design program!
