Integrate Macbook Pro Touchbar with InDesign
I love Adobe InDesign and use it everyday for work. I recently upgraded to a Macbook Pro with a touchbar. Photoshop and Illustrator both support the customized touchbar feature and it is super efficient and awesome to have many tools right there on the touchbar.
As someone who uses InDesign more than the above mentioned adobe programs, I would LOVE to be able to use the touchbar feature in InDesign as well!
OMG, its hard to believe they had not integrated jet... ???

I would like to be able to add style sheet shortcuts as this would drastically speed up work in formatting long documents
I would love to see shortcuts for file place, align, character/paragraph toggle, eyedropper.
YES PLEASE! But let us customise what shows ups.
I'd love to have the alignment/pathfinder buttons.
But the options that show up should be contextual,
So if I'm editing text, then it could be options for font, colour, # of col, drop cap, particular char par style,
and if I have objects selected, obj style, colour, alignment, pathfinder, etc.
Maybe it will be available for the launch of the new Mac Pro with 500$ added of courses ;)
I would love to see features that require a click but are not well suited (in my opinion) to keyboard shortcuts, such as color swatches, align/distribute, and maybe those transform anchor point controls, though I'm not sure how.

Sorry @inAdobitably, I clicked accidentally on the page and flagged your post as inappropriate! Oops… Adobe, please remove that flag.
I like the idea of adding features to the Touch Bar… but what features do you think they should add?
I'd love this feature, especially with emojis (really symbols and accented letters...aka glyphs) available in the Touch Bar as they are in other programs with text entry on the Mac.
Yeah I don't get it. Photoshop and Illustrator have been integrated into the touchbar. Yet InDesign hasn't and that for me is one of my main Adobe application to work with.
And another thing, can we add features or change the touchbar within the application. Everything else is adaptable, so why isn't this feature?
I would completely agree. The opportunity is great for touch bar integration.
