How can we improve InDesign?

Adjust Layout - Off by default please.

Finding the new Adjust Layout in InDesign 2019 a bit of a liability as is turned ON by default.

Can you please add a setting to turn off globally and turn on only when needed? Currently doesn't seem possible.

Thanks

    I'm not adverse to change, I even like the new" fixed aspect ratio by default" in Photoshop 2019, but I think this feature is the first time I've been legitimately angry at an update...

    Stop making decisions for us, like ID users can't be trusted to decide for themselves. Turn this "feature" off by default!

    Layout adjustment was great, ideal for book work with changing margins. This new feature is a nightmare . It should definitely be OFF by default.

    Definitely needs to be OFF by Default.
    No question.
    Or at least a preference for all documents.
    I have never needed the feature and probably never will - now it's just adding extra steps and messing with my otherwise smooth workflow.
    Terrible waste of time.

    This has become a real Issue within our Print production department. catching people off guard.

    This should be OFF by default, and should not be forced onto the user, it should be optional!!

    Maybe this is an oversight by the developers.

    Please fix.

    This new feature isn't very effective. It messes up my documents whenever I forget to turn it off. Please, turn it OFF by default on the next update.

    Thanks in advance!

    It's very annoying in this update indeed.
    One has to pay attention very closely everytime when adjusting documents.

    Please turn it OFF by default or be able to set it globally!

    Thanks.

    Yes please, turn this one off by default under "Margins and Columns". It's rather annoying.

    This is not a helpful feature to have on globally. There should be an option to turn it off by default.

    Having it on by default is causing huge problems for our printing house. Some people may forget to uncheck it while working and it can alter a page we didn't want altered. It should be off by default.

    Please add an option for this to be permanently switched off. The feature really doesn't work well and produces completely unexpected results, especially on pages with more complex layouts and / or vector objects. This could potentially be very dangerous and very costly to your customers.
