  1. Application In Use indicator

    I bounce between InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop continuously and often realize after trying something that I'm in Illustrator, not InDesign. If there were a subtle unobtrusive way to indicate this, so it 'feels' like Illustrator that would be nice. I don't mean overboard, like Microsoft's Word blue, Excel's green. Something I can change until I find something I like. An indicator in the toolbar? Does this exist already and I don't know?

  3. Add a new menu item to the menu bar: Indexes

    Ideally, indexing should have a menu all its own. The fact that it's only got a panel that opens from the Windows menu suggests it's an afterthought, and it's very limiting, because it means I can't create my own keyboard shortcuts for indexing functions.

  4. Ability to change default settings for new index entries

    I use the I use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Alt-Shift-[ to add new index entries. But it defaults to "current page" and I don't want that because my document will be converted to ePub, and e-books don't have fixed pages. I want the default to be "next # of paragraphs: 1."

    The ability to change the default settings for new index entries would solve my problem.

  9. Remove [All paragraph] from Cross-Reference

    After the update Indesign to the latest version, there is an option for [All Paragraph] when creating a new cross-reference. This has led to a very slow performance when it tries to load all paragraph by default.

    The alternative is having a "unchecked" option for user, perhaps?

  10. horizontal alignment of text inside of text frame

    Previously InDesign had HORIZONTAL alignment of text inside the text frame. You could align text at the top, bottom and centre of the text frame. It was one of the best features of InDesign, and it seems to be stripped off. :(
    Unless it's still there somewhere, thoroughly hidden away. But why?!

  11. "Teach" Content Aware Fit

    Is there a way to "teach" InDesign how the content aware fit function should work. As you can see in my attached image, it's actually cropping a big part of the image out.

    Thanks

  12. Bug when embedding pdf objects in Indesign Layout.

    A PDf with text is embedded in Indesign. When exporting the Indesign document, certain fonts that were correctly displayed in the PDF are torn. In the appendix an example with incorrect display.

  15. Find font should allow the use of character styles

    When I import a Word file and preserve local formatting some text comes through as an unrecognized font because the local style applied to the text does not match the style available in the family.

    For example there is some text that is Calibi Italic. My body copy uses Frutiger LT Std and the italic version is Frutiger LT Std 56 Italic. InDesign has styles the text as Frutiger LT Std Italic, so it is pink and uses the wrong font.

    Find/Change does not allow me to search for a style that does not exist. I cannot search for Frutiger…

  16. Menu size control

    I need to create MOOC video captures with Id, Ps and Ai. There is a fabulous option : change UI text size in AI 2019 that should be placed in all CC tools. Especially with a need for more visible menus in video captures. After all, education trains future users. :)

  17. No transition effects to assist loading pages with identical backgrounds.

    By default Publish online introduces a fade on page load even when there are no transitions applied in InDesign. This interferes when you use multiple pages to spoof the appearance of navigating within a one-page environment.

    When I export to PDF the background isn't redrawn so the appearance of the linked page appears smoothly. Publish Online is clunky when loading the next page as it momentarily goes black and then fades-in the page items.

    A bit of background .... I've created a page with a number of rollover buttons, then a duplicate of that page which is navigated to (x10)…

  18. Image Object page break

    Make a page break for an image object become a separate page/xhtml doc in epub export. Not just something in the code, but an actual page, so that that if I say page break before image or after or both, it separates the image onto it's own xhtml doc and truly breaks it. Just like the split page export option in a para style, this would be helpful for objects to be treated the same way.

  20. 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).
