  1. Make the Learn Panel so that it can be enabled, even for experienced users (not just those who claim to be beginners).

    Make the Learn Panel so that it can be enabled, even for experienced users (not just those who claim to be beginners). Currently, there is no way to view the Learn Panel if a user claimed "experienced" status at setup, even if this was done by accident. Users should be able to view the Learn Panel, regardless of level of experience. Evidently most of the students at our K-12 school, thought they were experienced, and now cannot access the Learn Panel for necessary tutorials. Please make the Learn Panel available for everyone.

  2. Allow closing of "Adobe InDesign 2020" palette

    Please allow closing of the "Adobe InDesign 2020" palette completely. I was able to extract it off the top of the top toolbar, but there's literally no way to close it and nothing in it that I would ever use on a regular basis. And I already know I'm in InDesign 2020—I don't need to lose 20 or 30 pixels all the way across the top of my screen telling me that, and I certainly don't need it lying fallow covering up part of my screen once I move it out of the top palette area.

  3. Shortcut for active text frame out port click

    Looking for a shortcut that would act the same as clicking on the out port of the active text frame. Rather than having to click on the tiny icon in the bottom right corner, a keystroke would speed this process up.

  5. Ai panel and short cut automation

    A workflow efficiency feature based on user behaviour and pointer travel distance the Adobe product suggests to relocate and add panels that would reduce the klicks and mouse movements, show and construct keyboard short cuts to speed up the work flow for you.

  6. Better place for Alignment in Paragraph Style editor

    Alignment is in the tab 'Indents & Spacing' - not very logical - I have to search for it all the time (not a daily InDesign user).

    Suggestion: replace the Justification tab by 'Aligment & Justification''.

    And in the dialog itself, the alignment has to chosen from a pull down menu.
    Why not the icons as used in the toolbar (and a pull down for the extra options)?

  7. Solo Mode for Properties Panel

    Okay, I love the new Properties panel, and the fact that it is a work in progress. As it gets longer, instead of scrolling too much, could there be an option of putting the sections of the Properties panel into Solo Mode similar to Lightroom?

  9. Native fullscreen-mode on macOS

    I think InDesign (and every other CC application) should support Apples native fullscreen-mode in macOS. I can understand when some people prefer the oldschool way of just maximizing de window, but the native fullscreen-mode would be so much more convenient when working with multiple desktop spaces and would be much more consistent within macOS.

  10. Zoom using only Scroll Wheel / Pan with the middle mouse button

    Today, the majority of softwares have a simply rule regarding using a mouse: scroll wheel to zoom in/out and middle button and pan with middle button clicked.
    Simply like that.
    So why only PS has the option to use the scroll wheel as zoom and the other softwares from the Adobe CC don't?
    And why all the softwares in the Adobe CC doesn't the option to use the scroll wheel to zoom without pressing Alt and pan without the need to use the Spacebar.
    If those features are implemented, most people that already use Adobe products will love it!

  11. Alternative GUI

    An optional GUI or shell that really simplifies basic actions for beginners. Easier handling of image placement and adjustments.

  12. Responsive palette sizing

    It would be nice if palettes would resize more intelligently.

    Having the Swatches palette shrink down to 2 swatches high while having 3 pages of empty space in the Pages palette or having to click through all of the states of Align to access Distribute because I had to collapse it enough scroll down 5 spreads is annoying.

    Having some form of dynamic sizing with priority given to cursor:hover (perhaps weighted by which tool or object is selected.... priority to relevant palettes) seems like it might help.

  13. Allow us to minimize the application in a window, like any other reasonable, modern day application. I mean, seriously, wtf?

  14. Remove unnecessary banner in CC Libraries panel

    Every time, after any new start of InDesign (14.0.3 and in previous versions too, on mac), an useless info banner is showing when opening CC Libraries panel. Only once at session, but every day again and again. Please, REMOVE THIS...

  15. Re-separating the tool menu

    You combined the tool menu in the right panel, but now I have to scroll down to the align section every time I want to adjust something. In InDesign, I'm mostly creating forms or schedules where I realign things constantly. It was more convenient before. Either put align at the top of the panel, or re-separate the panel. I can't drag align to the top of it either. If I could even just reorganize it, it would be better.

  16. Conditional Text Pallet

    Please add the "Show and Print" option next to the "eye" in the "Conditional Text" palette in the form of check-boxes, so that everyone can choose which condition should be printed and which only displayed. Now you can only do this in bulk for all defined conditions.

    This will be very useful in the arrangements between the editorial office and the dtp.

  18. Make Ink Manager panel resizable

    Title says it all. Sometimes we have a lot of spotcolors. I would be nice to see them all at once.

  20. Zwischenfarbe aus einem Verlauf Löschen/Entfernen

    Zur zeit muss man die Zwischenfarbe an den Bedienfeldrand ziehen was meiner Meinung nach null Intuitiv ist. Besser wäre es wenn die Ausgewählte Farbe mit der Entf-Taste gelöscht werden kann oder per Rechtsklick dropdown gelöscht wird.
