  1. Open a new file and see the full page upon opening

    When you open a document, the upper left corner should appear in the upper left corner of the window. Then you won't have to scroll to see the page. Currently it opens on the pasteboard with the upper left corner in the middle of the window so it's mostly hidden.

    So annoying. I hope you can fix it.

  2. Mute ruler contrast to reduce UI clutter

    Just a small idea, but would it be possible to reduce the contrast in the ruler markings slightly. There's a lot going on in the ID UI and reducing the contrast of the ruler markings to remain in the window's inactive state color - light gray - even when in active state greatly reduces the amount of noise onscreen. Would also make the dashed cursor position indicators easier to spot (currently they're impossible to see amidst the high contrast markings).

    Some of our clients requires Blacklining feature in InDesign to track the corrections between previous versions of InDesign, currently we're managing this requirement with third-part plugin, called Blacklining.

  4. Vertical Justification in InDesign CC

    We'd like to include smart Vertical Justification (VJ) feature in InDesign without disturbing the leading spaces. VJ feature to be enhanced with many customized rules such as adjust the style above spaces, avoiding space adjustments between the particular styles, creating lines to adjust the base alignments at the end of each page and the facing pages.

  9. Quick key and/or eyedropper tool option for ALL CAPS and lowercase in inDesign

    Having to use dropdown menu (and noting conspicuously absent quick key notation) is so tedious when you have to do this 100 times

  10. Implement Funktion "Start-Stop-Pinging"

    While working in a LAN (2ms Ping) or WAN (20ms Ping) with linked content on exhouse Servers, InDesign is getting very very slow.
    Reason is the permanent pinging to the linked files "R U still alive?" which the user cannot stop.

    It would save hours of time and tons of nerves each week, if user could easily switch-on and switch-off the ping manually - e.g. like the preflight. While saving, printing or exporting the file the ping should be activated automatically, to inform the user about any changes.

  12. Auto shifting groups

    I often do a catalog that includes hundreds of items arranged in alpha order; each of which includes an image and two text boxes. Of course, at the last minute the client will add a few more and every every item/group must be moved further along to accommodate them. Let's say I add three new ones beginning with the letter A; Now all the groups must be moved three places further along, line by line page by page.. very tedious and time consuming. But what if there were a way that they could all be set to shift automatically the…

  13. Hiding objects then showing them again keeps them highlighted like in Illustrator

    I suggested this years ago but I think it would be useful to be able to select objects and hide them then by showing them again for them to stay highlighted. This is how the feature works in Illustrator and I use it all the time. It would be really good if it worked the same way in Illustrator.

  14. Applying Master Pages

    I work with 1000+ pages at a time in InDesign and it's a pain to apply the Left / Right masters.

    I always have to fire up Excel and make a long string with odd and even numbers, just so I can paste it in the "Apply master to pages" box.

  16. Checkbox to change style of linked object

    I would like to use/export interactive PDF, which would allow user to check the checkbox next to object. Upon checking, the object hidden style would become visible.

    For example: I have PDF with multiple images of cars. When I check the checkbox near the image of car, that image will be overlayed with green transparent effect to show this car has been selected.

    I would like to have this feature available for my collection overview and to see the visual feedback of all collected objects would be satisfying for me.

  17. InDesign Encoder

    Hi fellows and Adobe Community?

    I work every day on Adobe softwares like Photoshop Illustrator InDesign and also on Premiere Pro and After Effect.
    Today, I would like to point something and I let you join this conversation and leave comments.

    One thing I really appreciate with Premiere and After, is that I can still work on my projects while I'm exporting videos or animations in Media Encoder. One thing I don't really like using InDdesign, is that when I'm doing an export file, PDF or JPG or whatever, I cannot keep going work in InDesign.

    Hey Adobe crew. Is…

  19. navigation

    It would be great if InDesign could have back and forward buttons, similar to those in Visual Studio. I constantly have to scroll up and down for work and it would be great if there was simply a back button that would send me to the spot I was before.

  20. Bring back recent files

    I loved seeing recent files every time I hit open because I could find what I was looking for with a glance. Working with graphics, I am very visual, so these thumbnails saved me a lot of time.
