    This is now available in the latest version of InDesign.

  3. Create a more functional font menu please!

    Make the fonts menu more functional.
    > Show larger font samples
    > Let user see selected text or custom text as sample text (instead of just using "sample")
    > Ability to sort between serif, san-serif, decorative, handwritten, etc. Even if this means user needs to create "tags" to organize their own font libraries.

    See the typekit website or any website that sells fonts. Do it like that.

  5. Paragraph shading with rounded corners

    Paragraph shading is very useful, but for some reason clients always seem to want to have rounded corners on boxes/panels :)

    If we could have rounded corners that we can define the radius of this would give a lot more flexibility for layout. Paragraph shading works inside table cells too so this would open up a lot of possibilities for table styles.

  6. 'Apply Similar Filter' character addition

    As already used in Photoshop and Illustrator, the 'Apply Similar Filter' to text and character seems like a logical step, given that InDesign is a primarily text heavy application, being able to select similar fonts would be a must in my books.
