Bring back Click-and-Drag character and paragraph interface
The scale scrubbers on the control panel/menus that allowed us to click and drag to adjust character size, tracking, line spacing, etc. were invaluable. It allowed us to see the changes as we were making them. Please bring them back! It takes me about eight times as long to lay out text now.
More specifically, Click + Drag = Copy (object, text, frame).
InDesign is an incredibly unintuitive, time-robbing layout program.
