  1. Push Out Compensation for Perfect Binding on PDF Export

    Being able to take a facing page document and adding an amount of cross over bleed from the spine and scaling that amount from the spine to the outer trim would be invaluable to my workflow for large perfect binding books. As it is now stands, I have to separate each spread to single pages and create bleeds towards the spine and move/scale each page to allow for artwork alignment in the final printing and binding.

  4. I want to be able to search for an empty cell in a table, and able to add the cell icon (square) in a search..

    I want to be able search for the cell icon in a table or an empty cell.

    Sometimes I have to search for empty cells in tables and replace them with an en dash to show that they are intentionally empty.

    When you have over 70 tables in each book it would be really helpful to be able to search for an empty cell.

    And sometimes I need to search for characters that appear all over the document but I only want to find the ones in a cell, so being able to specify that icon in a search would…

  5. Support for Microsoft SCUP

    We have invested very large in SCCM infrastructure to support Global distribution of client applications. To speed up distribution of Adobe product versions we have analyzed Adobe Update Server solution.
    Based on our global environment that would require an enormous investment create a Adobe Update Server at every site location.

    We would like Adobe to add support for Microsoft SCUM, that would speed up product distribution without very large investment.

  7. Please allow cursor colour change option from black to white.

    Please allow cursor colour change option as sometimes black is not visible on dark graphics work. This is in particular for the selection too which comes in black only as a dafault
    Thanks

  9. Smart button interfacing

    I had an idea which could be applied to all of the applications. Essentially the idea is for a 'smart' button.
    Often when I'm diving in and out of the interface I miss clicking on a button, sometimes repeatedly. What if the button had a 'snap to' effect, this could be set with a variable through preferences. It could be set to 1 pixel or 100.
    This could be toggled on and off utilising a short cut. So you could activate it for different methodologies. It could also be disabled completely.

    It would allow for faster and smoother interfacing. However…

  10. Find/replace objects according to their X/Y coordinates

    Dealing with multiple InDesign books comprising thousands of pages, I would need to find all objects located at (or, preferably, within) certain X/Y coordinates, so as to automatically reposition them. You've made halfway to this in CC2018, implementing the size properties in the find/replace dialog box.

    My PDF will not export. It hits 35% then stops. I can't even use a new doc to export. Background task is moving. I know this is an issue other people have dealt with but I want to put it on record.

  14. Add an option to show Master Page data in the links palette

    Add options for showing Master Page info to the long list of item in the Links Palette options. Should definitely include "Master Page Prefix" and "Master Page Name", might as well include "Based On" and "Number of pages" while you're at it.

  16. Feature Request (or bug report) in InDesign directly

    When working, I get many ideas who to improve InDesign or what's missing or getting wrong in InDesign. And then I'd like to have a fast feature request form directly out of InDesign. But instead of this I getting forwarded to this forum and that's really to much time to search and the do a new topic.

    I'd like to have a real Adobe support-team! To interchange in an easy way (please no more these horrible mails: "I need more infos to the feature request" After drafting my wishes in the way the support will have, half an hour is…

  17. Option for fly-out menus to open to the right.

    Would it be possible to have an option for the fly-out menus to open to the right to keep the live page area fully visible? It's hard working on spreads in book interiors because any window open covers part of the text. If I have room to shift the spread over, InDesign automatically re-centers the spread when I turn to the next page. (Sample window was chosen in PNG because it's generic.)

  18. Bug: XML w/Images Export (filename)

    Just discovered during XML w/images export that ID is converting images w/spaces in filenames to underscores (causing mismatches, XML itself is correct) — is this a bug? Using ID 13.0.1

    Btw - I know this is a feature request post, but I can't find an easy way to submit bugs!

  20. Reopen color theme floating palettes

    I have a workbook/training document that has sections, and each section uses a different color scheme. I used the Color Theme tool to create the different color themes for the various sections. But with each new theme, I lost the preceding floating palette. It would be so helpful to be able to reopen a color theme floating palette that is based on a theme you saved in the Swatches panel. It would be more convenient to drag the floating palette around the screen (near to the objects where you want to apply fill or stroke) than to have to undock,…
