Background Tasks Pane animation
Create an animation setting for the Background Task Pane so that the pane gives feedback while in a closed, docked position.
Why this is important is simple. Even with the larger and larger monitors with more and more real estate, simple things like the Background Tasks Pane having to be fully open to be examined is counterintuitive and by extension counterproductive. I would like to be able, with a simple glance at a docked pane to tell exactly what state the background task is in and if further detail is desired or needed, then it can be expanded with the option of more information if not a sharing of verbose logging shared in the expanded pane at that time.
That's a great idea. Additionally, you could animate the InDesign program logo with the progress as it already happens when opening documents or printing documents. So you could observe the export progress even if you are in another program than InDesign. There have been many requests for this for quite some time.
