  2. Correction in Dictionary Criteria for Hyphens (Portuguese)

    Most of hyphenation in Portuguese splits sylables from two consonants in a row (r-r, s-s Ex: 'car-ro', 'profis-são'), but this is not true for nasal sounds formed with the letter H (lh, nh) and I see myself having to review this hyphenation constantly. For example, the correct hyphenation is 'traba-lho', but inDesign usually hyphenates 'trabal-ho' (which is incorrect). It is a simple addition to the program that could save a lot of reviewing time.
    There are some other issues too.
    Could you please check that out and review the hyphenation rules as of grammar? Portuguese has quite a bit of…

  5. Create an hyperlink to a "not specific" file or folder with a generic name like "AAA*.pdf"

    To make an hyperlink to a “not specific” file or folder.
    For example:
    In the reference folder I can have a file named “TIM 111.pdf” or “TIM 222.pdf”.
    I would like to make a hyperlink like “TIM*.pdf” that opens the file that I have in the reference folder without specified the complete file name.

  6. free local installed viewer for mac amd win

    there should be a free locally installed mac and win viewer for indesign and photoshop files for sales people to view on inhouse secure servers.
    these files need to be on our server and not in a third party non DOD certified cloud server which are subject to cyberthreats.

  7. color panel bug in ID CC 2018

    color panel bug in ID CC 2018: the panel doesn't display colors, it's empty. It's not possible to add a new color to the panel. I can add colors only to CC libraries. My OS is high Sierra 10.13.4

  9. Paragraph adjacent to the previous without indentation

    Such a paragraph model exists in some word processors. It's not always convenient to add the same nested styles to a dozen different paragraph styles.

    Also, this feature would solve some other problems (for example, you could create a list in one paragraph)

  10. Either copywriting or translation need to be watched

    This message is about idiomatic usages in the interfaces of Adobe products and their mistranslations into other languages.

    When those mistranslations don't cause inadequacy in the Adobe software's useability by professionals because they guess what it meant in the interface, professionals just make fun of them and pass them by.

    But when they can't guess what it meant in the interface, Adobe lose credit because some features of the Adobe software is not known by professionals.

    I will give you an example in the second situation. In the Adobe InDesign software, there is a mistake causes misunderstanding in the Turkish…

  11. More stability with the CC account connection

    INDD is most of the time unable to convert recent documents to an old version. Everything is connected, CC is active, but conversion fails.

    Same with libraries. INDD is connected, but libraries are not available (disconnected of CC).

    The only solution is to reboot the system, I can't spend my working time to reboot computers.

  12. Markierter Text

    Seit dem letzten Update reagiert die Tastatur seltsam.
    Markiert man in einem gewöhnlichen Texrahmen ein einzelnes Zeichen und schreibt ein neues ist alles wie gewohnt.
    Sobald man aber zwei oder mehr Zeichen markiert schreibt InDesign erst beim zweiten Zeichenanschlag. Das erste eingetippte Zeichen wird also immer unterschlagen, sehr nervig!

  13. pasting to layer

    When pasting, it would be nice to be able to not have to stop to select layer when there is only one layer open and simultaneously have to stop to address error message saying prev layer used is locked or hidden etc. I frequently just want stuff pasted into doc and don't care at the time which layer it falls on and do not always wish to organize as I paste etc.

    the same principal applies to dragging from cc library too.

  14. Have a modal window or panel where all alt text can be seen and edited at once

    Can we have a way to open some sort of modal window that then allows us to see all alt text for images/graphics etc so that we can quickly edit all alt tags within a document in one place? It's time consuming having to select each image throughout the document and edit individually.

    It would also be useful to have a preflight check for alt tags within InDesign.

  15. Calendar

    I'm trying to design a calendar and it would be great if InDesign had a feature that automatically created the grid and correlated the days, months, etc... rather than doing each day/week/month by hand individually. Especially being that every year it changes.

  16. Show Hidden Characters

    When you have "Show Hidden Characters" turned on, we don't really need to see the hidden characters of the type that's on the Master Pages.

    The reason I'm asking that is that with this option turned on, it interferes with my ability to read small type that's on the Master Pages.

    I mean, if I'm looking at a Master Page, sure it could be on, but if I'm looking a the regular pages with that feature turned on, I usually don't need to see those hidden characters of the type that's on the Master Pages.

  19. Support for .oam files in interactive pdf‘s

    Wouldn’t it be great if you could publish an interactive Pdf and have the ability to see some basic animation to help tell your desired story? I’m not talking about an ePub here, or an outdated flash file. I’m suggesting that a widely accepted format across multiple platforms, the Pdf, should have the capability to play an lightweight animation / .oam / .gif rather than only be able to have a huge .mp4, with massive compression!

    Surely by now we could have some nice .svg animation. Is html5 able to be implemented into in design? There must be a relatively…

  20. InCopy Autoflowing Text takes forever (a long time)

    i use InCopy as a notes app since 2015. the file i write on is now almost 5 mb big. and i noticed that over the years it takes longer and longer for incopy to open my document. and it is because of "Autoflowing Text" i do not even know what it is and i can't even google it. But it takes so long. what i have been doing over the years is that i just wait for it to finish. But now i am trying to find a setting in preferences to turn it off whatever it is so…
