  1. Possibility to keyboard shortcut Semibold (and other text formats)

    As I am working for a company who has Semibold in their product names I struggle with this for a long time. In Flyers and documentations I have to select Semibold from the dropdown menu every time because I have not found a working script for Indesign or anything else that solves this 100%. Why is it even not possible to create own Mac OS shortcuts for this operation? In my opinion an obsolete problem that doesn't belong in 2019

  3. Adjust font size by half points

    It would be really great if the font size under the character menu could be increased or decreased by half points, rather than full points. It's a bit of a pain to have to type in half point values for sizing numerals and all caps.

    Hello,

    In Indesign, it would be interesting in the 'text block' to have the option 'Adapt the text to the block'. The option exists for the image block 'to adapt the image to the block proportionally' to adapt this option to the 'text block' would be a saving of time and the possibility to automate a good number of works. For example, to change from A6 to A5 via the linked article system it works great with the image block and not at all with the text block. The only possibility of action with the 'Text block' is to enlarge…

    Need More Info  ·  amaarora responded

    Hi,
    Please see if using the “Free transform tool” solves your purpose
    Just select the object, switch to the Free Transform tool, and place your cursor over one of the corner or side points. When you see the double-headed arrow, drag.

    -Thanks

  5. Corners option fill default to 0p

    Whenever I create a new text box, I get the default of outline set to 1p. I always forget to change this, and in editing have to go back and remove all these boxes from picturs, etc. This wastes a lot of time. Have not found where I can set this, saving a changed empty doc does not seem to work.

  7. make font preview display filtered weights properly

    I'm attempting to preview all san-serif, heavy weight, regular width fonts. While the filter shortens the list of fonts in the preview window, when I use the arrow keys to see my live preview I am getting only light weight previews. If I want to see the heavy weight version, I have to pop open each font group and select the heavier weight version. What gives? This is such a basic idea... please show me ONLY bold, heavy, extra, etc. Don't show me light weight previews when I am filtering for heavy weight. This limitation makes live preview almost useless.

  10. Have Type Colour always available to select/change

    Please can we have the Type Colour always available to select and change, rather than being hidden secondary to the Fill Colour.

    e.g. why is the Type Colour not in the Character panel like Photoshop has.
    why is the Type Colour in the main horizontal Control Panel not NEXT to the Fill Colour? ... Why do you have to click Fill Colour then T then select the Type Colour??? ... the same for the Swatches Panel - why is the Type Colour secondary to the Fill Colour.

    The same problem also goes for Stroke colour ... why can't the Stroke…

  11. make fonts go back to having bold and italic versions

    (rather than 'heavy' and 'regular italic' or 'oblique' etc) so that we can use shortcuts to apply them

  12. Make OpenType SVG composed glyphs unbreakable

    For now combined glyphs can be accidentally broken if they reach end of line.

    For example, I add composed glyph 0x261d + 0x1f3fe (☝🏾) It is up pointing hand with skin tone modifier.

    Applied EmojiOne font.

    Now i start added dots before is (.........). When glyph reach end of text field, he will be PARTIALLY moved to next line. This moment it will be broken.

    I understand why it happens, but this is unexpected behavior.

    I think there should be an option in paragraph or character style, that makes glyphs unbreakable.

  14. Make it one-click to disable USA English across all documents, existing and yet to be created.

    Every new document I create defaults to USA English which is time-consuming to change for everyone who does not use this variation of UK English. Please make it a button on the 'New document' window to select default language, and please make it a tick-box in preferences. It could be worded like this for example 'What is your preferred default language?" and then a drop down. Then every document I open will automatically have the correct dictionary applied without any further time spent. Many thanks.

  15. Stop underlining words after dot.

    Indesign underlines after the dot the words that begin with small letter. This is wrong in the case of abbreviations. Indesign should either recognize the abbreviation either there must be a way to signal the correctness of the word that begins with small cap.
    Example: typing the text " bla bla ex. blah" will result in underlined 'blah'.

  16. option boxes with sizes need different default behavior

    for all boxes where you can edit a size, please make the default behavior that when you click in the box to edit the size it selects everything. that way you can just click on the box and put in the new number. If for example a text size is 10px, please when I select the box, select everything so that I can just type in 14 to make the size bigger. If I type in 14, you should just keep it in pixels. Or if I type in 14pts, change it to points. Editing sizes right now is annoying…

  17. Text Hotkey window tool

    A windowed tool that allows you to assign "Hot keys" to font styles where you could quickly edit text on the fly. The text hot key tool would have an activated switch so when its on, it applies your hot keys and when its off everything goes back to normal. This would mostly be used for references where authors names are italicized, body copy is regular and numbers are bold. I know it is similar to the eye dropper tool except you would be able to edit all at once rather than have to go back to each style. The…

  18. No scroll options in Font menu

    Please, add a scroll bar and/or scroll wheel/page down/page up options and maybe start typing font name desired to functionality in the font menu in InDesign CC PC versions! Painful at best without these options.

  19. type measurement units

    I choose inches for my units. It used to be, that even when I did this, type units were always in points... specifically space before and space after paragraphs. Now, they display in inches. I know I can type in "p8" and it will convert... but I need to SEE it in points, rather than having to change my units every time I need to see this. I thought that previous versions also had, in preferences, units specifically for Type. I would like this feature back.
