  1. Drag Edited Images in Lightroom Directly to InDesign which automates Export and Creates Shadow File Folder Structure of Edited Files.

    Drag Edited Images in Lightroom Directly to InDesign which automates Export and Creates "Shadow File Folder Structure" of Exported Edited Files. This would allow easy Image Navigation for visually identifying assets from Lightbox environment and directly linking them to INDD files without the cumbersome and redundant step of Exporting and then searching for exported file in FINDER. This is a no brainer for LR IND Integrated workflows! Please prioritize!

  2. Please expand "Save As" filename box

    Why is the "Save As" box so small? I work with long filenames and having to scroll horizontally to append them every time I save a file is a pain.

  3. More responsive UX on macOS

    Many macOS users will agree that InDesign feels veery laggy compared to other apps (like Affinity Publisher for example). I really wish you could finally implement a more responsive UI with native macOS UI components instead of scroll views that scroll like it's 1999! :)
    Adobe XD is a really good example of what I mean by "responsive" UX on macOS. I understand that XD is much younger than InDesign, but if you don't want to miss out on the next generation of graphic designers, you should really do something about it.

    P.S.: I can't speak for the Windows people.…

  4. Add a setting to make horizontal scrolling / zoom with mouse wheel match operating system

    In Windows, holding shift while scrolling scrolls horizontally and holding ctrl while scrolling zooms in / out.

    I would like to be able to the same behavior in InDesign so I do not have to consciously change how I navigate documents when using adobe products

  6. Add a 'Change all buttons to Rollover State' on Buttons and Forms panel

    When creating buttons with rollover states we currently have to manually click each button and select the rollover state on the panel window to adjust the formatting.

    There is an option to reset back to Normal State – but not the reverse. Having this extra option would mean less time checking each individual button rollover format is correct and less chance of missing out buttons when changing formatting between normal and rollover states.

  7. In the save dialogue box in Windows add a show all option so we can see what's in the folder.

    We see empty folders instead of files in our folders. We don't have the option as it's not programmed into the save dialogue - hopefully this will change :)

  8. Shift key to select multiple objects like in Illustrator Layer window

    Shift key to select multiple objects like in Illustrator Layer window.

    For now I have to select each object one by one and can't do shift select with the upper most object in the layer window and then select all with the lowest in the list via shift to select them in between.

  9. Frame handles that don't include stroke as in Illustrator

    It is possible to uncheck 'Dimensions include stroke weight' so that dimensions show the actual size of the element (box, circle etc.) regardless of the stroke weight and stroke alignment. But the frame-selection and -handles still align with the outside of the stroke, which I find a bit frustrating, when I for example want to resize objects to align with, and snap to the edge of other objects or guides. Please change this, so it is consistent with how it works in Illustrator, which I think is how most people would expect it to work.

  10. add a "Buttons" list in the buttons and forms palette

    When creating interactive PDFs, it would be great to have a place where I can access buttons already created without having to click through objects on my page to find out what button was created to do what. (I have some documents that require multitudes of button objects) I'd love to see a place where I can discern if a "button" is an object being used to hide/show another object or is the object BEING shown/hid. Also, having multiple interactive elements on a page seems to "crash" my docs or cause all sorts of weird issues when viewed. Is there…

  11. Format panel: Symbols for special keys

    I use shortcuts for my paragraph formats quite structured: Command+NumPad-1 is the large headline b.e., Command+NumPad-2 the subline and Command+NumPad3 the main text. If there is an alternate version of these styles, for example a smaller variant or with a different font for certain elements I’d shortcut those with an additional Alt- or Control-key. However, a long description of a shortcut blends away the name in the Format panel – see screen shot attached. It would help if the shortcuts were shortened by displaying them (optionally) with symbols instead of key names, as shown in the second, simulated screenshot in…

  12. please let us change default layer colors

    I would like to be able to change the default layer colors. I don't like that there are 2 shades of blue before other color options are being used. I know yellow was removed as a default layer color, but I didn't mind the yellow. So why not have us choose our own colors?

  13. Duplicate/ copy-paste object inside same group

    When I duplicate (alt+drag) an item that’s within a layer, the duplicate will be pasted outside the group in the layer panel.

    What I expect to happen is the duplicate to be pasted directly above the original, within the same group. When multiple groups are selected I expect each layer to be pasted above their original item inside each group, or ask me I i’d like to place them above each other.

    At least give us the option how this behaves in the layer panel. It’s annoyingly time consuming to have to manually put them back into the group instead…

  14. Option to minimise titlebar (as implemented in Bridge)

    I recently noticed that in Bridge the titlebar is scaled down 50%.
    It would be good if this would be implemented in InDesign (and Illustrator and Photoshop) too.
    Being it an option in the preferences > user interface scaling would be even more practical and logical.

    When opening or saving in InDesign the dialogue window does not support dark mode when dark mode is turned on in macOS 12.5.

  16. Add shortcut to clean up open panels

    I often lose a panel when I'm working. A shortcut and/or View menu item to rearrange open panels so they do not overlap would save me a LOT of time hunting for them.

  17. View menu > Fit Page Width to Screen

    1. Add a command under the View menu—Fit Page Width to screen.

    2. When I'm editing and formatting type, I like to make the type as large as possible, but still fit the page width to the screen, so I don't have to scroll.

  18. Maintain the Layers Panel scroll position when switching between documents.

    Maintain the Layers Panel scroll position when switching between documents.
    At the moment when you switch between documents the scroll position of the Layers Panel 'resets' to showing the top most item in the layers list.
    On documents with many layers (where the scroll bar is present) every time you switch documents you have to scroll down to find the active layer. Very unproductive.
