  1. "Remove Frame" option

    If you have several items that are grouped together in a frame, it can be difficult to edit them. You have to cut them out of the frame to ungroup them.

  2. Automatic image link if the Links folder is in the same folder as the document.

    InDesign should automatically find images if the Links folder is in the same folder as the document. The old InDesign was able to do this. I'm constantly having to update links when the folder is moved around, and this also means re-saving the file, which changes the modification date.

  3. Show picture as it is being resized

    In CS5 we could drag the corner of a picture and the picture would change as you pulled down. The new version only changes the frame and you can't see what the picture is doing. We print over 1,000 pictures in our weekly publication and this takes a HUGE amount of extra time to get the picture to the size we need it in the frame.

  4. Please add free templates that come with a paid subscription to InDesign and Illustrator.

    It's ridiculous that I am paying for InDesign and Illustrator, and I don't have access to adobe stock. I need some templates and I shouldn't have to pay additionally for templates for InDesign and Illustrator.

  5. Discrete Zoom vs. Resize Multi-touch Gesture Preferences

    Currently the enable/disable Multi-touch Gestures preferences turn on and off all multi-touch gestures, including multitouch resizing of content and interface actions, such as zoom. It would be great to have an option to preserve multi-touch UI gestures, such as zoom separate from enabling resizing of content. For example, it would be useful to be able to zoom in and out with multitouch in any area without having it actually affect content.

  6. Removal modal warnings when opening a document.

    Such as missing links, fonts, etc. Perhaps a docked issues panel once the document is open, but modals block the loading, and if you happen to be opening several old documents at the same time... Also the one that needs attention inevitably pops under the one that says the document is loading. Just remove them all and find another way to give the user feedback.

  7. Caption Setup Metadata Dimensions in Inches OR ImageCatalog.jsx Script Labels in inches

    Hello,

    I would like to be able to add dimensions in inches in Caption Setup.

    This is useful for creating a reference contact sheet for printing graphics of many different sizes

    Alternatively, could ImageCatalog.jsx Script be edited to include a dimensions label in inches?

    Thanks

  8. Improve the time it takes to import to PDF in InDesign 2020

    It takes up to 10 (ten) times as long to export to PDF in InDesign 2020 compared to InDesign 2019. These are files linked to graphics, not just text files.

  10. Add a feature to the paragraph shading or the underlining where you can set the angle. For italic Fonts.

    Would be a big relief if you could set an angle in the paragraph shading or the underlining. With this it would be possible to underline an italic Font individually and correctly.
    Right now im forced to create a transformed rectangle under the italic Font to underline or highlight it with its angle. I cant do it with underlinings or shadowing for italic Fonts..

  11. InCopy - Split screen view for Story and Layout

    In Incopy it's only possible to use one view. Gallery, Story or Layout.
    It would be great if we could also combine 2 views into one.

    With the 27" displays now in general use, we should be able to show one half of the screen in Story mode and one half in Layout mode.

    This allows for users who need to change texts to show also the overset text in the story mode when the text in layout mode is not visible (due to the overset text).

    Sometimes when editing the texts in Layout mode and then switching to Story…

  12. Show Page Dimensions permanently in Document Window

    With more than one tool to change general/individual page sizes, keeping an eye on these numbers is crucial.

    Please make page dimensions visible at all time – e.g. in the slug/pasteboard area next to every page or in the Pages thumbnails, at least as some kind of tooltip or popup info. This behavior could be activated with a preferences checkbox. Thanks.

  14. OS Specific Features Lacking

    I can respect that you want to keep the CC base code clean of OS specific features, but I HATE subscriptions and I HATE the fact that you make the apps feel like 2nd class citizens on Mac. Two examples:

    1) Full screen windows.
    2) Full Dark Mode support.

    I won't go into details as I am sure that any developer / engineer working on these products on a Mac knows exactly what I am speaking of. There was a time when I truly loved Adobe products and thought it was a fair company. Today with subscriptions and attitude, I'm…

  15. Page picker when placing PDF

    Please add a page picker (overview of all pages) when placing a PDF, INDD or AI file like when you drag a PDF into Photoshop. It would speed up the process of placing different pages enormously

  20. Make tool windows movable from anywhere within the window

    Since I'm working with two screens I have a custom design to my workspace. However, whenever I use one screen only my workspace gets messed up and the headers of several tool windows appear in-between screens, making it impossible (?) to move them.

    It would be great if I could click anywhere in a palette and move the window around, could even be together with a modifier.
