How can we improve InDesign?

Add .psb file format to standard importable files

Please add the .psb file format to the list of standard importable/placable files. it's the only format Photoshop allows after a certain image size, and i use it quite often when designing big print items that are several square meters in size.

    Which Einstein at Adobe decided to release a Photoshop file format that cannot be placed into an ID document? Adobe calls these applications a "suite," but they seem more like competitors. They do everything differently and do not work together any better than QXP or Freehand did. Adobe is must be the worst company on the planet.

    Without this capability, Adobe is limiting the quality of large wall mural prints. This is a must for Adobe to fix or provide a solution.

    You can import PSB:

    - on mac, use drag & drop to place your PSB from Finder to InDesign. You can edit that file in Photoshop using "Edit Original" command, and it will be correctly updated in InDesign. I do not know why it is not possible to choose PSB directly in place dialog

    - on windows, i think it is an option to show all files in place dialog and then choose PSB (not sure, but so i remember when i got externally supplied document with placed PSB and experimenting how it was done... i on my mac and colleague on windows).

    Also i vote up to allow import PSB using standard place dialog.
