How can we improve InDesign?

Hide/Filter pages in pages panel AND navigation

I got myself in a workflow where I would have a document having sections organised like that : title page / content page / title page / content page…
I have to go back and forth between the content pages, and sometimes between the title pages.
That helps to compare what has changed and what’s consistent between the pages.
So I try to not distract my eye by either going to the pages panel or by ctrl-page up with the « title pages » interruption (think about the (now long gone) photoshop cmd-Z to undo/redo and spot differences.

If Title pages are T1 T2 T3 and Content pages are C1 C2 C3, they’d be « distributed » in the document as : T1 C1 T2 C2 T3 C3…
I could assign labels to the master pages and would filter the visible pages « all red pages » then my navigation would jump only to the « visible » pages in the panel. They could be either really hidden, or may be grayed out.

Don’t forget an indicator in the pages panel that some pages are missing.

On some documents, it could be used as a « progress » indicator : the fewer pages in your pages panel -> the closest the end of the work/day.
