How can we improve InDesign?

More organization for CC Library files

I love the idea of using CC Libraries, but we have multiple versions of our logo built for different scenarios. We have different size logos built for a range of book spines, different colors depending on background, and logotype versions for specific product lines. Right now, I'm creating shorthand in the name of each element to differentiate them, but having metadata or notes for each item would help a lot. I could see the note popping up when you hover over an item. Another solution would be customizable sections within each Library. That way I could organize the logos within the proper size section.

Having the ability to organize Library files in a way that makes sense to an each individual organization would be a time saver.

    Ditto on this. I believe that having folders would be key in organizing the libraries.

    +1 on this... Libraries could be an incredibly powerful tool for teams, but without the ability to deeper organize using things like folders it's hard to use it efficiently.

    Yes! Please give the option to make folders, that would be great. No styles and colors from different brand guidelines are all mixed into one, why would anyone want that? If you're designing for different clients (or even projects), and I assume most of us are, you need to be able to store all styles and colors and whatnot separately into folders.

    Yes. At the moment the library is not usable for me. I have 14 versions of a logo for a client, colors, assets etc. thetas too much for the library without hierarchy

    Plus: It should be possible to archive older, seldom used libraries. They should be re-activated if needed, of course.

    Hello,
    if you want to copy a folder structure (for example from the dropbox) to the library you are lost, because you don't have sub folders. We need that.

    More flexibility with CC Library assets - be able to see larger previews of assets, organise into folders, etc.
