  2. Font tool and Character panel lockup

    When selecting a font from the character panel or selecting text from a document after opening the file InDesign locks up. It happens without fail since the update and the lockup time range from a minute to going on 5 minutes plus (finally just restart the app).

  4. visibility of the Colorsetting in menu bar

    I often work in different color settings for newspaper printing or offset printing. It seems convenient to me if I can see the current color setting as a notification in the menu bar. Also usefull for other applications as well like Illustrator and Photoshop.

  5. Vertical Justification & Align to Grid clash each other

    when i turned on align grid, it should honor the setting i want, but when i apply text frame option-> vertical justification->justified, everything just messed up.

    first, after setting text frame to justify, and you turn on align to grid, (mostly this happened when there's not enough text to fill the frame so the leading has to be stretched) it does change the space between lines, (Eg if your justified lines are fairly wide, turn on align to grid will make it narrower) but its not actually align to the grids (no matter if your leading is smaller/greater than the…

  6. Text Variable as a consecutive number

    Possibility of defining and inserting a text variable as a consecutive number of the list.
    Thanks to this variable it will be possible to number subsequent words in a sentence. For example (1) thing, (2) thing, (3) thing etc, or thing1, thing2, thing3 etc. There are infinitely many possibilities. Verse of poetry at the end of the verse etc. References to comments which are not endnotes or footnotes (without laborious definition of cross references). Sometimes it is necessary to list the words or any fragment of text within a paragraph, or to add numbered references to comments inside the text.

  8. REPLACING A PLACED ITEM SHOULD NOT INCREASE OR DECREASE THE SIZE OF THE NEW ITEM.

    When you have a box with a placed item and you go to replace the item, the program should not INCREASE or DECREASE the percentage of the place item to fill the box. (Just cost me a client)

  9. "arrange document"

    Enhanced 'Arrange Documents' features

    It would be very helpful if one could apply keyboard shortcuts to 'Arrange Documents' options (Consolidate All, Tile All in Grid, Tile All Vertically, etc.) It would also be awesome if we could save our own frequently used layouts.

    In the example shown by you, you’re trying to ‘Unmerge Cells’ of a Single-Row Table after merging these cells in a previous step. This has not been possible in any of the versions of InDesign till now.
    This would require a new implementation altogether and would thus fall under a Feature Request category.
    We’re moving it to the Feature Requests page.

    Thanks,
    Adobe InDesign team

  12. Packaged PDFs

    Please make the default for packaging PDFs include a .125 bleed, not 0 bleed. As a printer, or best workflow is pdf, but 99% of files received from clients contain no bleed when they are packaged. Also, I have not found a way myself to change the bleed amount for a packaged pdf. Please make this easier to edit as well.
    Thanks

  17. Would like to be able to ignore specific flags in Preflight

    When preflighting a file, I would like to be able to choose to ignore specific flags that are brought up, that do not actually pose a threat to processing, while keeping in place the original settings that caused the flag to begin with (as in most cases it is an issue that needs to be fixed).

  18. A way to chose where you would like to save your links, INDD file, etc when "packaging" a file.

    When working on projects with multiple large books, we would appreciate a way to "package" a file, yet save all of the links for each book in a Master Links Library folder, fonts in a Master Fonts Library folder, and PDFs in a designated folder.

    Additionally, it would be awesome if there was a way to preflight a file and ensure that all links are linking to a specific master links folder.

  19. Show which layer is printing in the slug area.

    We often have to print specific layers to be sure our art is on the correct layer for printing. It would be especially helpful to us to see which layer is printed along with the page information.

  20. Live color update when using color picker on a fill

    When an object that can be filled is selected i can't use the color picker to see a new color without clicking OK repeatedly to see how it looks. Why can't it update in real time?
