  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

    The fix for this issue is now available in the latest update (14.0.2) of InDesign 2019.

    If you are unable to see the update notification, open the menu (three dots) from the top-right of Creative Cloud desktop application and click on ‘Check For App Updates’.

  2. 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

  3. Static Endnotes

    I need a possibility to turn off the automatic endnote function that appears in InDesign CC 2018. It may be practical for some applications, but it greatly impedes the flexibility of many designs. Can someone tell me if this is possible – the endnotes don't need to be dynamic for my purposes. The way they were imported when placing a Word document in ID CC 2017 was fine.
    Richt now, the only way I know to work around it is to use Peter Kahrel's footnote to endnote script.

  4. Can you please fix the font scrolling issue? When scrolling through fonts it jumps back to the top of the font list

    Can you please fix the font scrolling issue? When scrolling through fonts it jumps back to the top of the font list. It never used to do this in previous versions.
