Allow object style to set the size of an object
One of my ongoing projects is design and layout of a scientific journal with 2 column pages. Columns are 264pt wide, and every issue has hundreds of images that have to be 264 pts wide. They all have the same object style applied. If it could specify their width and cause them to be resized as soon as I apply the style, it would save me a ton of time and repetition.
This is now available in InDesign CC 2018
One more thing: I'd like to be able to specify the object style to apply when I place them. In other words, when I select an image or set of images (or even when I just drag them into ID from a folder), I'd like to be asked what object style to apply. Maybe there could be a check box somewhere in preferences turning this on since not everyone wants to be asked. I'd appreciate it being done in a way that I don't have to go through the import options, especially not for each file. Ideally, it could be a document preference, so for that journal I'd instruct ID that any image imported/placed should have my image object style applied, and any other file format that's imported should have no object style applied.
