  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  7. 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?

  10. 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.

  13. Calendar & layout

    I have noticed that whenever I try to create a calendar in InDesign there is not a practical way to place the day and month automatically.
    For example, the software allowed me to place the number in order form one to 31 but I cannot place the date automatically, like Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and so on.
    I wish this indesign engineers can figure out a way you can add Recurring date and month autumnally. Just like the number I know that I can make a master page and the numbers can appear in order I want the software to…

  15. iXBRL tagging - annual reports - ESEF reporting

    New regulations in Europe means that from 2020 all financial reports must be produced with XBRL tagging. InDesign is the single most used layout software for producing annual reports, but will be useless for the purpose without a solution for tagging.

    Are you working on a solution to this considerable challenge?

  17. 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

  19. 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.
