UI – Some Buttons are missing InDesign CC 2020 (OS X)
I’ve updated InDesign to the newest version 15.0 (InDesign CC 2020) on OS X.
And some buttons in the top window border are missing like the percent and the GPU rocket.
Is it possible to put these back?! Or do I have to change it anywhere in the menu? Can’t find it.
We’re going to review this issue.

I feel like this is a sign of failure behind the scenes. The screen mode button and other top toolbar items should not have been removed. The fact that you think its ok to remove something so relied upon is telling, and it doesn't look good for the future of adobe.

Adobe, are you kidding? WTH are the (View Options, Screen Mode, Arrange Documents) toggle buttons in Indesign 2020? HIGHLY annoying that they are missing, I can't seem to figure out how to add them back in. Can you?
20 years of using Indesign and now you are taking things away from our relationship. What gives?

Where is arrange windows shortcut button in the new Indesign 2020 release? Why can't we define what buttons are in the top bar and/or turn off the "home" icon?
The changes to the top bar are not terribly helpful. It might be a good idea to ask customers who have been using your products for 30+ years what they need before eliminating features. The same sort of thing happens with the OS interface too and it is such a productivity killer.
Those of us in book publishing are extremely alarmed that Adobe will not be supporting Type 1 Postscript fonts starting in 2021. Our entire backlist of books is our greatest asset. Selling them is how we can stay in business. The ability to make corrections to them, as needed, is imperative. What's your plan for a work-around on that? If we can't make corrections to older books in our backlist without reflowing text, then will we all be forced to revert to Quark Xpress?. If you think the publishers are upset, wait until the print vendors find out! Yikes. :-o
HATE HATE HATE this new set-up in InDesign! The top options bar is completely missing - WTH???
Features like nudging the text + or - pt is just GONE. Go back to the previous set-up PLEASE!
must have screen mode shortcut in toolbar!!!!
Piling on here after updating to 2020. The view %, preview mode etc buttons in the top menu bar were constantly used in earlier versions. So inconvenient now.
Where're the toggling buttons between fill, line and text color swatches. How do I reactivate them for God's sake?

Just bit the bullet last week and finally left CS6 for a CC subscription and wound up at this terrible news that this was indeed intentional. Please put the "arrange windows" button back where it was. Thank you, Adobe!
Please, for the love of GOD, bring back the ARRANGE button! I used that button daily as I work with documents that require side to side comparison numerous times a day, and judging from comments below and other website forums, many other users miss this button. Having it easily accessible was key in allowing me to work more efficiently, which is not the case anymore.
Another vote for returning those buttons - I have spent valuable time searching for the Normal and Preview buttons in vain, thinking *I* had done something stupid and lost them. Now I have to go through three steps instead of just a click?
This is not good design for a tool which is intended for working designers.
Agree. These were crucial, often-used function. Please return to the toolbar. There's ample space.
NOT getting on with the new 2020 indesign at all as you have taken away the application bar and I can't seem to find a way to get it back. I use it all the time to quickly swap between bleed/non bleed views of my documents and now the only way to do that is to go to the view menu and scroll down which is really inefficient. In case you don't understand what I'm talking about I will attach 2 screen grabs - of both the 2019 and 2020 versions. The very top line where all the extra view options are is what is missing from the new one.
I have been to tech support and had a guy take over my Mac to try to help me and he wasn't able to find a solution.
So how long exactly is it going to take Adobe to put the preview and other buttons back on the top of the page? This is not rocket science. It is so irritating that people are forced to waste their time looking around for things that are now missing or hidden somewhere else. Who thought this was a good idea? Please put them back! I am returning to 2019 until the issues are resolved.
SCREEN MODE BUTTON!! Why would you take that away? At least give us the option to drag and drop icons in to the spots we need. Even MS Outlook does that.....

legacy buttons in the top window border is much better. Moving them to the tool bar make this bar being more distracted and the three basic buttons that are often used become faint and difficult to find.
PLEASE bring these shortcut icons back!

Put back the Bridge button in that top tool bar! Actually put EVERYTHING back where it was, why do you always screw with things like this? It doesn't help us, as the comments here show you. Reminds me of a client's secretary wanting to "play around" with the design, just so she can have some "fun" too... never yields a good product.
I'm also interested in getting the percent back on the menu bar for zooming.
I would like the Screen Mode icon back, please. I go back and forth between views a lot. It was a real time saver.
