  1. Libraries

    A really small thing that has tripped me up a more times that I wish to admit is that in Indesign the CC Libraries is called "CC Libraries" however in Photoshop & Illustrator it is just called "Libraries"

    If this could become standardised across the Adobe Suite that would be great.

  2. Add More Styles to CC Libraries

    We'd like to be able to add more styles to the CC Library, i.e. object styles and cell styles. This would be helpful when collaborating on a project.

  3. CC Library Issues

    In our pre-press workflow we package jobs for archiving which includes pulling copies of files down from CC libraries. It would seem that each new library names files sequentially 'Artwork 01, Artwork 02' etc. A significant problem arises when you need to use jobs from multiple sources to create something like a folio. You then have multiple copies of - say - Artwork 01 which the software then rename Artwork 01-1, etc. Best would be if filenames could either be determined or are sourced from the filename when elements are added.

  4. CC Libraries, global changes

    It'd be great to be able to update Character and Paragraph Styles used in CC Libraries over multiple documents. Frankly, I was shocked to find out I wasn't able to do this.

  5. If a graphic file is added to the CC Libraries the default name should be the file name

    If I add the file with the name companyX-logotype.jpg to a CC Library it gets the name "Bildmaterial1" (in German – must be something like "image1" in English).

    It would be great if the given name would be "companyX-logotype.jpg" instead.

  6. Update linked text from CC Libraries without effecting styles

    Please add an opinion to "Place Linked" text without effecting the style after an edit to the text. Imagine the text in the CC Libraries is the master. This master text could be placed in many documents with different styles. Let say your company has a tagline. The tagline could be a different font size in each document. This way you could keep a master product description and place it in many documents with different styles.

    Thank You

  7. Make Typekit fonts usable offline outside of Cloud app, just check activation sometimes

    It's annoying that I have to close the applications (Illustrator, inDesign, Photoshop) since the Typekit fonts aren't available if I open them before the Cloud application is up and running. I get to work and open the programs right away and forget to make sure the Cloud app is already open. Forcing me to close all 3 and reopen all 3, waste of time..

  8. CC library items - update placed instances after editing library item

    This applies to elements *created within InDesign* and then added to CC Libary.
    If I place instances of the library item into an InDesign document, those instances are not updated if I edit the library item.
    In other words it would be helpful if placed library items would update as they do with the old version of InDesign Library.

  9. Allow users to opt out of Typekit and CC Libraries

    Typekit and CC Libraries are annoying and should be optional.

  11. TYPEKIT FONTS - same download / deletion timeframe as the apps themselves! offline usage necessary

    WHY? are you tighter and stricter on tiny fonts and more flexible on big apps (i.e. 30 days offline access)?
    HOW? do i use CC apps offline and design text work without FONTS?
    if you can limit access to apps to the end of subscription, and you can limit font access by requiring being online, ergo you can design access to your components anywhere on the timeline between those 2 endpoints. it makes zero sense to be flex on offline app access, then strict and tight on offline typekit font access. cool on the larger and jerks on the smaller?…

  13. Import controls for Libraries

    Provide an option to control how a Library item imports into InDesign. Since Libraries created from AI are treated as PDF, they place with the Bounding Box (Visible Layers) option if the user hadn't changed the PDF Import options. There is no way to control the import into Photoshop, as Photoshop doesn't remember the last PDF import option, unlike InDesign.

  14. Smaller CC Packages please

    Why do I have to include loads of programs I don't need if I upgrade to CC? It's bad enough making us pay this expensive subscription but as a graphic designer I only use InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat Pro. Can't you fashion more selective packages? I'm holding out with CS6 but having been coerced by Apple into upgrading to High Sierra it's all looking wobbly. Adobe are the vanguard of the Tyranny Of Upgrade.

  15. Integration of Behance with InDesign

    Unlike Illustrator, where it's relatively easy to copy and paste reference images, I find it difficult to refer back to my references. Although all applications throughout the Adobe CC could really use this feature, I especially would like for it to be considered with InDesign.

    I would like to highlight/sort certain artwork on Behance that I can then view in the "CC Libraries" tab. This would allow me to quickly view and refer back to my inspirations. I really think this is a missed opportunity, since Adobe has already acquired Behance and shows little-no interest of connecting it with applications.

  16. More stability with the CC account connection

    INDD is most of the time unable to convert recent documents to an old version. Everything is connected, CC is active, but conversion fails.

    Same with libraries. INDD is connected, but libraries are not available (disconnected of CC).

    The only solution is to reboot the system, I can't spend my working time to reboot computers.

  17. Share the templates (INDT) into the library

    Dear all we already use a lot the library as we are a team of 6 designers working on the same bases. We already use swatches and images which is very convenient. It would be good to have the templates (rollup, A4 , webbanner ...) in the library as template the way we can just drag and drop them

    thank you by advance. InDesign is a wonderful tool

  18. Add "Creative Cloud Files" Tab to "New Document" Window

    Create a TAB for "CC Files" within the "New Document" window.

    When you open InDesign you can select to open a file from CC Files. I have a lot of saved templates so this is a great feature.

    However — once I have a file already open, I cannot easily load another template from my CC Files, unless I hunt it down in finder. This would save me a lot of time if I could load them from the New Doc window

    GENIOUS.

    Thanks

  20. Download licensed graphics from CC library to my hard disk

    It's not possible to download/store/save licensed graphics to my hard disk! I have to open my web browser and sign into stock.adobe to do this. Please make it easy!
