How can we improve InDesign?

Indesign Gradient Tool

Please make the gradient tool in Indesign function the same as in Illustrator, it's fiddly, cumbersome and gives you nowhere near as much control. There's no reason for it not to function the way it does.

        Yes, please. Working with gradients in InDesign is very obtuse and not very intuitive. It is very disruptive to creative workflow and I am more likely to avoid using it than to embrace it as a useful feature. I agree 100% with making this tool much more robust and versatile, very much in line with the Illustrator version.

        確かに、InDesignのグラデーション機能はずいぶん古い時代のものです。
        Illustratorと同じように、実際のオブジェクト上でグラデーションストップを移動したり、
        グラデーションストップをダブルクリックすることで、その場でカラーやスウォッチを指定できるようにしてほしい。
