How can we improve InDesign?

Bring Back the DPI!

Dear Adobe,
How could you get rid of the term DPI, especially in InDesign, and replace it with PPI?!!!! As a print designer for the last 15 years, it breaks my heart to see that the premiere software company for designers has abandoned a term that is part of the fundamental lexicon of graphic design. I am a print designer at a CA State University and it kills me that our graphic design students graduate with an BA in Art/Graphic Design without having set foot inside a print shop! Now, the software they use to layout printed pieces doesn't even reference the the dot of ink used to create the finished piece. Adobe software sets the standard for design software tools. Don't lower the bar by erasing the language and history of graphic design. Young designers need to understand that all the pretty PPI on the screen gets transformed into pretty DPI on the page. Print is not dead Adobe. Bring back the DPI!
