  1. Option to split table rows across pages

    Lord please, if you're up there, answer our INDD prayers and make this a feature. A LOT of tables have rows with more content than can be held in a single page or bottom of a page. It's impossible to layout a continuous book or brochure if I can't get the table text to split - it doesn't have to be the default, but give me the option - please, please. WORD does this, be better than Word!!

  3. Locate where a specific colour is used in your document

    It would be really useful to be able to find exactly where a colour is used in a document. When you get a document from a third party and there are extra colours in it that you are trying to eliminate it is sometimes very difficult to track them down.

    You can convert the colour to a spot colour then turn on separations and do a visual check but, apart from being time consuming and relying on it being large enough to be easily spotted, it won't help if the colour has been defined as part of a style.

  4. Vertical lines between text frame columns

    Add an option to add vertical lines between text frame columns (with, of course, options to choose line weight, color, etc).

  6. Preserve filename on PDF export

    This is a common issue having looked around the internet for a solution...

    PDF export uses the name of the file up until the point where a user changes the name of the PDF before export, then saves the file after the export is done. That changed name is then written into the file and used as this is the expected behaviour.

    However, this becomes an issue if you are repurposing the same artwork at different sizes (for example) where you have to manually override the filename on each export.

    It would be great if a future InDesign build had…
