    Thank you all for the votes.

    Can you help us understand the key problems that you face in the absence of ability to send an anchored image backwards?

    What’s the current workaround that you have to follow?

    What are the use cases wherein you need that the text appears specifically on top of inline anchored image?

    This information will help us evaluate the functionality better.

  2. Applying Master pages to 'all even' or 'all odd' pages

    Applying Master pages to 'all even' or 'all odd' pages - would be handy when working with large documents, rather than manually typing or cmd+shift the pages to include.

    Need More Info  ·  Anonymous responded

    Hi All, thanks for this feature suggestion.

    If I understand this correctly the idea here is that you need a faster way to be able to apply Master Pages to the various pages in the document. One use case is that you want to apply a particular master page to Even and Odd pages.

    Are there other such scenarios too, where you need more support. It would be helpful if you can mention other such scenarios.

    Thanks

  3. Quick image adjustments in InDesign

    Sometimes when creating a document I need to ever so slightly brighten the image or adjust the contrast, maybe increase the saturation; and standard workflow means pulling these up in Photoshop and applying the changes and the saving (often as a new file so as to preserve the original).

    This always seems like alot of effort for something that I feel could be done on InDesigns side.

    I am suggesting image quick adjustments.

    So an image is coming out slightly too dark. No worries, right click, apply quick adjustments. A new tool box will open that will have basic image…

    Thank you for voting for the feature request.
    It will be helpful if you can add your responses for the below queries.

    1. In the absence of this feature in InDesign – how do you make these adjustments today?

    2. Once the image is imported into InDesign, what kind of adjustments do you mostly need?

    3. On an average, in a project, how many images need adjustments once they are imported into InDesign?

  4. Cannot paste grouped object into graphic cell - when could previously.

    Adobe InDesign CC, 2017.1 Release
    Version 12.1.0.56 x 64 build

    I used to be able to paste a grouped object (for example, an image with a bit of text overlayed on it) into a graphic cell in a table. Currently this is not working - I can put a regular image (just a linked image) into a graphic cell, but as soon as I try to "paste into" a copied grouped object, it does not even offer paste into as an option.

    This issue is present in tables used by multiple users in different files - not a bug in…

  5. Grouped items revert to previous layers when moved then ungrouped

    InDesign CC 13.1, Windows 10

    When I have a group that contains items from various layers, and I move this to a new layer, when I ungroup those items they revert back to their original layers.

    I understand the concept that grouping remembers layers, and I like this feature! It used to bug me that grouping brought everything onto the same layer, sometimes altering the appearance. However this seems like an unintended consequence.

    Say I have an item on Layer 1 and an item above it on Layer 2. Grouping these items makes them both "appear" to be on Layer…

  6. Easier Pasteboard Changes?

    I'd like an option or a tool to quickly adjust the pasteboard size. I use that area for working out different layout and content options, and I find it strange that I have to go into the preferences to make the area larger each time I start a new file.

  7. After creating a QR-Code-symbol, I can´t change the color in InDesign.

    I have to copy-paste it to Illustrator, copy-past back to Indesign, to change the color. Wouldn´t it be comfortable, to change the color directly in Indesign?

  9. Removal of direct selection function in images

    Hi,
    it would be possible to disable the moving of an image when I select the central point (it automatically activates the direct selection) and this is very annoying.

    sorry for the english, but I used the google translator.
