  2. User-definable colors for highlighting H&J Violations

    With checked Preferences / Composition / Highlight H&J Violations, the default colors for highlighting them (against paper background) are yellow and violet, plus some shades of them. As I seem to have some trouble in visually identifying those colors when present as light shades, I’d like to be able to modify them in order to work better for me. Thank you :-)

  5. How do I install the HP Support Solutions Framework?

    The HP Support Solutions Framework or HPSSF is a program developed by Hewlett-Packard which offers a common set of software interfaces. It allows the users to access and manage the drivers, hardware, and BIOS settings. If it got uninstalled from your system, then you don’t have to reinstall it separately. Instead, the newly developed HP Support Assistant functions the same way. If you don’t have it on your system then just visit the HP support website, 123.hp.com, and install the HP support assistant on your system.

  6. Please give the option to remove the "home" bar (the one with the house on it)

    In indesign, there is currently no way I can find to remove this bar that wants to live at the very top of my screen. I don't use it, it takes up valuable space and it has no purpose (at least for me). I want the option to turn it off, just like I can turn off the frame (which I don't use either). thank you
    ps adobe support told me to post here for the issue.

  8. Add shortcut or button to bottom of links palette for Collapse Multiple Links...

    Please add a keyboard shortcut or a button to the bottom of the links panel for the panel option "Collapse Multiple Links to Same Source". I have to toggle this on and off often and would like an easier way to get to this option. Thank you.

  9. Bulk "Don't Save" – Bulk "Export"

    InDesign has an irritating habit of forcing us to the "Don't Save / Cancel / Save" dialogue when we haven't even touched the file. This can be frustrating when I have many files open for, say, a bulk export to JPG (which is provided by a nifty script that you should really incorporate as well). I want to close all the 30 files, but even though all I did was export, I must respond to the same dialogue box 30 times.

    Therefore: We need a "Don't Save All Open Files" option when closing windows.

    We also need a "Export All…

  10. Make Layer Options work logically

    In Layer Options we have the choice to Show the layer and/or Print the layer.
    But when Print is unchecked, the layers doen's show either.

    Please make it possible to Show a layer, but don't print it. This comes in handy for guides / instructions or e.g. to visualize the window of an enveloppe.

  11. context menu in book palette

    Why there's no right click functionality in book palette?
    Every command you want to make you must select document, then open palette menu then select command.

    Please switch on context menu in book palette!

  13. Keep my same workspace whenever I open InDesign

    Every time I open InDesign, it is set to Essentials and I always have to manually set it to Essentials Classic. Not sure if this is a subtle way to phase out of Essentials Classic but it drives me insane!!

  14. arrange/hide tools

    The ability to arrange and hide tools like in Photoshop and Illustrator would be a massive productivity improvement for creators.

  15. Guide feature

    I think any feature of guiding new people who are using for the first time will be very helpful.

  16. text anchor symbol easier to see

    Double the diameter of the dots in the blue colon symbol used to represent a text anchor. Very hard to see compared with other symbols when "Show Hidden Characters" is turned on. And maybe move them a bit to the left so they're further from the beginning of the text anchor.

  18. One language for the app interface, another for the shortkeys

    It would be G R E A T if you could install the english version of InDesign, but use shortcuts for a non english keyboard, since many of the english shortcuts don't work when you use a non english keyboard.

    This is actually a problem in all Adobe apps and not just InDesign.

    Please don't tell me to switch to ENG in Windows 10 since I want to be able to type in swedish...

    And don't tell me to manually go through all shortcuts and change them one by one. I shouldn't have to do that every time I install…

  19. Align operations on selected anchorpoints from different frames

    When selection a series of individual anchorpoints from different frames, I would like to be able to perform operations from the align-window (like distribute centers). Thus making it possible to shape a series of frames in one go. I.e. when you would want an angled side to a series of frames.

  20. Proper Full Screen Support for MacOS

    It really would be helpful if the Adobe CC apps (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop et al) all did as Acrobat Pro DC does and properly implemented the MacOS full screen/split screen option.

    This would allow people who use multiple and large monitors to properly designate workspace and split screens between two apps without toolbars/panels getting hidden by other apps.
