How can we improve InDesign?

Select All Across Pages

PLEASE create an option to select all objects or text over the entire document instead of just the page/spread you're on. Making a universal change to the document, such as outlining the type is such a pain having to manually change from page to page. I've seen MULTIPLE threads online for the past 8 years of people requesting this, and it hasn't been resolved.

    YES, I also agree, please fix this!!!
    Some ideas on how it might be realized:
    - Drag and Drop is not restricted on objects on just one page spread (as is now)
    - After selecting objects on one spread, you can shift-select objects on another spread thus expanding your selection (instead of replacing the first selection which gets lost, as is now)
    - Layers window: The button "Select elements on <layer XY>" selects the elements of the selected layer in the whole document (not just the elements on one spread, as is now), unless something is currently selected
