Support ID Books!
As a freelancer corralling multiple ID files, many which share Styles, Parent Pages and other elements, or need to output in a certain order as a combined PDF, I have long used the Book function in ID and MANY OF MY CLIENTS DO AS WELL. This feature of InDesign is still bare bones, undeveloped and buggy. It needs attention from developers! Here are my wishes for Adobe InDesign Books:
1) The Book Panel is still bare bones. Simply give it your attention.
2) I want all the fly-out menu options for a book to be available with a secondary click/contextual menu.
3) I want label colors in the Book panel to mark the status of various documents/chapters.
4) I want View options to stick! If I have a lot of documents in a Book, and I set it to view in Small Panel Rows, I want that setting to be there every time I open the Book!
I’m frustrated that Adobe devotes so much attention and talent to XD, Premiere, Photoshop, Illustrator but really seems to have their eye off the ball with InDesign, or print in general. Please turn some attention and talent resources toward InDesign and the Book feature. This is long overdue.
