How can we improve InDesign?

Rework Grid: Set Grid opacity, Add Grid to Document setting in stead of Preferences

Grids are very usefull. But when those are In Front, it would be convenient if the opacity could be reduced. 100% opaque makes it hard to make design decisions when the grid is active.

An old (Xpress legacy?) irregularity, is that Grid settings are part of Preferences, while these should be part of Document Setup.

Grids belong to a document, not the application.

    I agree - it is horrible to have document specific options in the preferences of InDesign. This should never have been an option to begin with. - You can only guess what setting is for the document or globally for InDesign

    I'm not sure that all settings that belong to documents rather than the application should move to document setup but a good case can be made for grid settings and some others. Generally, though, it would be helpful if settings that belong to documents could separated from those peculiar to the application. Even an icon distinguishing one from the other in the preference panes would help.
