  1. visibility of the Colorsetting in menu bar

    I often work in different color settings for newspaper printing or offset printing. It seems convenient to me if I can see the current color setting as a notification in the menu bar. Also usefull for other applications as well like Illustrator and Photoshop.

  2. Unlock UI when dialog box open

    I would like to be ale to work on more than one pararagrapg or object while a dialog box is open. For instance, I’d like to be able to open the Paragraph Styles panel while in a paragraph then be able to click in another paragraph without having to close then reopen the panel.

  3. Clear Overrides in Proprieties Panel

    Proprieties panel is great, for text boxes however we need a little more in the text styles section, like a clear overrides button from the paragraph styles window

  4. Desc: A pref to turn off Adobe cheesy marketing headlines on Open screen–Why?: Chesy mktng dsnt wrk on designers

    I suspect this "feature" wasn't tested. I can't believe I'm the only one distracted from work with OMG every time I open the app. Please make it stop.

  5. In Mojave Dark mode: let window bar be dark instead of light.

    At this moment the window bar is light, only when application frame is selected everything is darkened.

  6. Library panel: Pop-up preview on focus

    Thumbnails, even large thumbnails, in the Library panel are often not enough to know which object I’m looking at. I often have a lot of similar items in one library. How about a preview that appears when the mouse hovers over a library item? It would work like tool tips.

    While I’m on the subject, how about letting us name items in the panel instead of requiring a dialogue? Most panel work this way.

  7. Glyphs accessing

    Just like MS WORD, to assign keyboard button(s) for a glyph that I use frequently and not accessible in my keyboard, the glyph palette is good, but in this case it is very awkward to use it. MUCH THANKS ADOBE BRAINS!

  8. Height of Link Info in the Links pallet stay as pallet height is changed

    I would like to have the Links pallet behave differently. I would like to have it, when adjusting the pallet size by clicking and dragging the bottom of the pallet, adjust the size of the Links portion of the pallet instead of the Link Info part, keeping the current height of the Link Info consistent.

    Currently, to see more images in the list, I have to drag the pallet twice. Once drags the pallet larger, but in reality only changes the size of the Link Info. Then I have to drag the bottom of the Link part down to see…

  9. Toggle through styles and narrow by search in paragraph/character/object style windows

    The ability to go through all styles without leaving the Paragraph Style Options window. Like forward and back arrows. If you are editing multiple paragraph styles at a time (or character or object styles for that matter), currently you have to close out of the dialog box every time you want to toggle to a new style. It’d be nice to toggle or click through to the next style (alphabetically), or choose it from a drop-down menu.

    Also. when you have a long list of styles, the ability to search for them by typing. Right now, you have to scroll.…

  10. Window decorators make moving the window difficult when smaller

    When the window is small (eg half of my screen), the window decorators make it very difficult to move the window. In particular, the name of the program ("Adobe InDesign CC 2018") is inactive, but somehow I still can't grab the window there. It gets very frustrating to manage my screen, especially when I need several programs open.

  11. Change to using ribbons instead of the old style menu bar.

    My wish is to see the menu bar replaced with Ribbons and tabs (as in Microsoft Office 2016). It is so much more efficient than using menus.

  13. Split Layout view also horizontal

    Split view is great. Allowing you to refer to page numbers, whilst checking the contents in the other view for example. But its only in portrait (left and right)

    A landscape (top and bottom) view would also be great and most appreciated

  14. option to disable power zoom

    like the titel says: option to disable power zoom. i never use this 'feature' and its very annoying that this power zoom activates when i try to move the workspace with the hand-tool.

  15. Make "Start workspace" default go to open files

    I would like the "Start workspace" to be my go to open document workspace in Indesign. Also when documents are already open.
    I find it very useful to see thumbnails of my work instead of the "Open recent" filelist.

  16. Non printing layer attention value

    Since the latest update of Adobe CC I noticed that across the suite, when you double click a layer and set it to non-printing, the label is no longer displayed in italic. Thus remaining in the dark on first glance at layer palette if a layer is set to non printing. I use non-printing feature a lot but now I don't have a visual reference anymore. Don't understand why this feature was removed?

  17. User interface is getting worse and worse

    I am still on CS6, because newer versions have been less stable and don't bring any benefits I need. Now I tried InDesign CC 2018 and realize that the contrast of the UI gets worse (dark grey on light grey or vice versa, additionally you cannot distinguish inactive/greyed-out menu topics), that the palettes needs more space on the screen without any reason for doing this and more dialogs/messages are not on the original OS design but in a new style. I suppose this is for tablet usability, but within this app really makes no sense to me. You are moving…

  18. Replace GUI

    It could be usefull if developers could completely replace the existing GUI, and replace it with a custom build GUI. The Indesign engine could then also be used for other purposes than graphic design work.

  19. make type palette responsive and precise - it slips and lags.

    scrolling through fonts in the type palette is not smooth and responsive. It slips and lags, as if there is something blocking the mouse or trackpad sensor. Frustrating bug that does not occur in Illustrator. Please fix.

  20. Cross-reference dialog: sortable picker / resizable window

    Every time I place a new cross-ref or edit a broken one, it opens that "Edit cross-ref" window, which is not resizable, where a lot of space is wasted and where the most import part, the list of headlines to pick from, is not the biggest part. Then I would select a paragraph style from that very small list on the left where some style names may even be wider than the list field. And when picking from the list on the right, it is not sorted aphabetically by default. Please put something we can click to sort. Imagine you…
