  1. Maintain Stable Versions

    Maintain a specific version until a client understands and accepts the update. Surprise changes wastes time and adds frustration. All of a sudden things like Shading pops up in my text and I do not know where it came from and there is nothing in the help system that points me to the very simple method to either change or turn it off. As an example Ctrl + Shift + U adds or removes underlines. In my case the text is highlighted with a random color.

    I've been with Adobe and other software providers who never organize and present the…

  2. Not able to select file option, jumps to "window" or "help"!

    When I open a file in InDesign, if I select the "File" drop down menu, it immediately disappears and the "Windows" dropdown menu gets pulled down.

    As a result, the FILE dropdown menu is completely USELESS.. Please fix this BUG immediately.

  3. OpenType-"O" on textframes: More a viewing-option than in preference

    As an element on my image/text-frames I would expect this OpenType feature to turn on/off in the "Viewing-options » Extras" like corner-effects or link status, tho its an advanced input.

  4. Allow user-generated swatches to support no color, i.e. solid transparency

    Currently we can change the color of a swatch by dragging another swatch onto it. This does not work with the default [None] swatch. It would be so helpful if you included this functionality. To reiterate, I am requesting the ability to change the color of a user-created swatch to [None] by dragging the default [None] swatch onto it.

  5. Shutterstock watermark alert

    The Shutterstock plugin is a great tool for easy access to the image database. Drag and drop the desirable picture into the lay-out.
    It would help if watermark pictures would be detected while exporting to pdf.

  7. Overhanging glyphs

    Gentlemen, this may be covered already, but it annoys me that when the letter “f” and maybe others appear in a justified paragraph they overhang the right margin. I believe the same may apply to the left margin with a few glyphs in italics.

  10. I would like to be able to choose the default color used when opening a new document.

    I use a lot of one color for business needs. It would help me out a lot if InDesign would default to that color for text and tables when opening a new document.

  13. Video opasity

    Please make the opacity controls work on videos in Publish files.
    It works in indesign but as soon as you publish your video its gone :(.

    Right now there is an opacity slider that is not affecting the video, seems like a error.

  14. Co-creation: Allow multiple designers to work on the same InDesign document

    Often we have stringent deadlines to meet. Thus multiple designers work in parallel. It will be helpful if multiple designers can work on same file. Currently only 1 designer can work on the file at a time. This makes the process inefficient.

  16. Select which PSD artboards are displayed when placed into InDesign (similar to Illustrator)

    When you place an illustrator file into InDesign, you can select which artboards you want to place. The same should be done with Photoshop artboards (instead of having to place the entire photoshop document).

  17. Have a 2 program package for CC

    Right now Adobe has an option to have Lightroom and Photoshop in a special photo CC package for $10. How about making it where you can choose any two programs? I don't need those two but I would easily upgrade may aging CS6 Indesign for a package like that.

  18. Auto saving to HTML.

    Is it possible to simultaneously save to .idml at same time as saving to native Ind file format? Using tryout now and wanted to save any live work both ways so if I decide not to subscribe, I won't have to go back and save all docs to idml.

  19. Form Button Functionality Post to Social Media

    Add a functionality option to form buttons that would allow for posting to social media (Facebook, Twitter etc.). This would allow the user to post an image of the form to social media (without the button showing) This would allow designers to create "form templates" that would allow the users even in Reader to post to social media.

  20. allow to navigate between book files with PgUp and PgDn

    F.e. hitting PgDn at end of opened document which is in book should open next document in book on 1st page or switch to 1st page of next document if already opened.
    Obviously it should works with PgUp at start of document.

    Just like it works in Framemaker.
