  1. Option to draw a text frame on top of another text frame

    Making a new text frame on top of an existing text frame is something I very frequently need to do. However, as it is, for different reasons this simple process is needlessly cumbersome.

    I have two suggested solutions (I have a dream that both could be implemented, and make a basic upgrade to my workflow):

    1. Make the type tool able to draw a text frame on top of another text frame. Explanation: When hovering the type tool above an empty area, the tool turns into a text frame tool, as indicated by the cursor. However, when hovering above an existing…

  6. Auto recognize type on path with overset text

    When using 'type on path' with multiple paths and you have overset text on one path. When clicking on the red plus so you copied the overset text to past it on the next path but it's not possible because InDesign doesn't automatically apply/recognize 'type on path' like in Illustrator.

    Attached an screenshot what I mean.

  7. Baseline Options for Character Styles: vertical alignment to top, base, etc.

    Text Frames have Baseline Options where you can set the First Baseline.

    Please implement something similar for character styles, to vertically align characters within a line, based on Cap Height, Ascent, Baseline, etc. – similar to CSS.

  9. Define increased/decreased italicisation/***** and weight relatively (independent of font) on Character Styles

    If I'm defining a Character Style called "Emphasis", essentially I want to be able to apply this to any text in the document and for that text to be italicised.

    However, this doesn't work because:

    • I might apply it to a font where the italic style is called "Oblique" not "Italic"
    • I might apply it to a font set in Medium. Now it returns to a regular weight with Italics, rather than Medium Italic.

    There needs to be a way to define "Increased/Decreased Italicisation/*****" or "Increased/Decreased Weight" on a Character Style. InDesign would then:

    • Find the Italic style that most…

  10. Preserve Formatting Pasting text from CC Apps

    I just did a nutritional label in ai and linked it to an indesign project, but wanted it to be more flexible using Indesign's text frames. As you know, nutritional labels require a TON of font size and weight variances so it really threw me for a loop that I couldn't retain all the formatting I had done when I pasted the text into indesign. Ruined my day sigh

  14. HOW TO FIX BLOCKED VPN BY WEBROOT?

    Webroot is amongst the best antivirus software out there. It is used by millions of consumers across the world. Sometimes users report several issues like VPN is blocked by Webroot antivirus.

    Once Webroot blocks the VPN, then it will restrict you from making a VPN connection. There are many antivirus programs available in the market, and most of them come with smart VPN services while others are overprotective, like Webroot.

  15. Kerning Tables

    Can you please build in the ability to export a kerning table for a font that I have manually kerned so I can use it again and keep adding to it as new combinations come up. This is something that is really restrictive for the Typographers amongst us and one of the things that is still really missed from the Quark days. I appreciate your general optical setting but it's really only a start point for fine tuning.

  18. Text box

    Instead of having to click and dragging to make a text box you should be able to click just once to create a text box, like in illustrator.

  19. Outline font in indesign

    When you outline font in indesign it should not adjust the stroke weight. Once you outline the font it should stay the same. Also add an expand feature would be nice in indesign so I don't have to keep jumping from program to program.
