I am surprised pattern support has not arrived for InDesign yet. I would like to be able to pick a repeating pattern or drop a png of a pattern in and select to repeat it vertically and/or horizontally within a frame.

YES! I spent hours trying to figure this out before I realized it's not possible. STUNNED.
Why is this not a feature?? I also am working on a huge catalog with lots of textured color options, and this would be sooooo helpful. The swatch panel in InDesign doesn't even seem to support pattern/texture swatches of any kind. How archaic.

Please. Small thing will make a huge difference!

I work creating catalogs for a big clothing brand and this would really come in handy. It's the most tedious part of the projects.
Yes, that would be very handy!
Would be really useful. I have missed this feature several times.
