  1. Adjust Layout - Off by default please.

    Finding the new Adjust Layout in InDesign 2019 a bit of a liability as is turned ON by default.

    Can you please add a setting to turn off globally and turn on only when needed? Currently doesn't seem possible.

    Thanks

    • Properties Panel More Options

      I quite like the idea of the new Properties Panel, but it would be great to have the options to have the "More Options" items to be expanded permanently. Right now the auto collapse once you change from item to item. I understand if you are working on a laptop, the fact that they auto collapse is helpful but when you are working on a large screen I don't want to keep looking for my options. Please add a preference that makes the expanded options sticky.
      Thanks, Julian

      • Add Endnote Support for InCopy

        Please add endnote support for Adobe InCopy. Without it, InCopy sadly is pretty much useless.
        InDesign Footnotes are too inflexible and working with manual Footnotes is not really feasible in larger documents.

        • Allow Adjacent Bordered Paragraphs to Share Their Border

          It's great that Paragraph Borders are now included but it really needs an option to "Connect Border to Adjacent Paragraphs Sharing the Same Style" so that the border runs around multiple paragraphs if needed. I know you can work around this with forced line breaks and empty lines but that jars with me and doesn't give me proper style sheet control.

          • Tabbing Order when creating a new document

            When tabbing on NEW DOCUMENT, the tab order goes from Width - Units - Height. It should go from Width - Height - Units. Illustrator does this correctly, Indesign has them in different (and distracting) order. Consistent between apps would be helpful!
