How can we improve InDesign?

Same color management in all adobe product

This will be a great feature for simplicity and collaborative work.

Actually, each program have a different system for choose color, and I'm sure you can improve that with give the same logical and features in all program.
Import photoshop palet in Indesign or Illustrator and vice versa...
Add the Color them Tool in photoshop and Illustrator...and maybe why not in After Effect and Premiere...
Sure you can do something great and identical in all your great products, even if you have not need CMJN/Pantone etc.. colors in video projects.

    It's a pain! You buy an "cloud" product, but its still feels like back to the time when the tools has different developing companies.
    Why is a "cloud"-bundle product still separating every piece of the software, that could be used global, just like colour-pallets?
    The added helper "cloud-library" is more a pain then helpful and not very useful/well integrated.
    I always have to use many workarounds for projects that use AI, PS and ID to get the exact same colours for print.
    Also folder-structure of each product is still different (just compare AI with PS).

    Maybe COLOR MANAGEMENT which has to do with Profiles and Spaces is not the right term, but i think you mean the COLOR PICKERS. There are several request here (that Indesign should use HSB like photoshop, and so on) ADOBE PLEASE LISTEN TO US.

    I agree 100%. Adobe surely wants every application to provide its own fullest potential, but with further developing and focusing on the creative cloud the applications are not key anoymore. In my mind it is the tools that are key.
    Working with InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop on a daily basis I keep asking myself why the color management is different in these applications. Or why the pencil tool does not work in the same way, why there is no action panel in InDesign (which Adobe is currently working on), why text editing is beeing handled so differently... (To jump on the color management train: I totaly lost it in Muse. I was not able to work intuitively on my colors in that app!)

    Future should provide creative cloud overall tools.

    How great would it be to learn how the tools work in one application once and then be able to work with three, four or five different applications.
