  1. 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?

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    InDesign Japanese version cannot rename composite fonts.

  11. Open maximised documents as NO Tabs...

    ...AND retain menu bar + all tools...
    (We can browse open pages with ctrl + ` - tabs are not needed!)
    It could help spare some place we're loosing for unneeded, visible all the time, tabs now.

    Similar problem - menu bar is so big... :/ It takes space, too. Couldn't be thinner? :/

    Plz take a look at screenshot...

  12. Enable more control panel and app bar customization

    Please enable greater customization of the control panel (the top/bottom panel from the Essentials Classic workspace).

    I realize you can customize which tools are included, however, it takes up too much space. Even if I reduce the number of tools to very few, the panel takes up two rows worth of space and all the tools are stacked (in two rows) at the far left of the panel. You also cannot arrange the order or position of the various tools.

    I hate how much space the panels take up on the screen and that's part of the reason I like…

  13. Make annoying datamerge save warning userfriendly

    The warning window "You must turn off the data merge preview before you close the document..." must be changed. Its good to have straight hint what's have to be done by user, but in modern software we

    need a better approach.
    Like button "do it for me now and we continue" and even checkbox "always do that and never ask again" (ofc with undo somewhere in preferences or datamerge interface, see screenshots)

  14. Change the process of setting a default object style

    Object styles are great, but it is way too easy to accidentally set an object style for all new objects. Suggest requiring a control click or a flyout panel menu item to 'set as new default object style for new objects'. I want my team to get more used to using object styles, but having a default style set by simply clicking on a style when nothing is selected is far too prone to user error and creates massive issues down the road.

  15. Reinclude the cutter tool

    The cutter tool has not been included as it was in old Pagemaker This tool is very useful. Without this tool, if you import an Autocad drawing, it is not possible to resize the content to the frame. I recommend to include this tool as it was in Pagemaker.

  16. Rework Paragraph menu

    Make it more logical:
    Indents & Tabs
    Alignment & Spacing

    Indents & Tabs belong together.
    Alignment & Spacing are both regarding vertical position.
    Also this will make Align to Grid better findable - it's in an unlogical tab now ('Indents and Spacing')

  17. Create New Layer more specific

    A new layer is currently always created at the top, which most of the time requires dragging the layer to ********* the right level.
    Why not make the function more sophisticated, and let the user choose for:
    -On Top
    -At Bottom
    -Above Selected
    -Below Selected

  18. Add Layer Above / Beneath

    I find myself dragging newly created Layers all the time. New Layers are always created on top. Why not make a more sophisticated interface that allows a New Layer to be created:
    -On top
    -On bottom
    -Above Selected
    -Beneath Selected

  19. Have a repository of InDesign experts to help beginners accelerate their project

    In the Help menu, it would be nice to have one item where it says: Hire Help
    Here is the rationale:
    I'm stuck with this one project and I don't know who to ask questions ouside the usual "Hire a virtual assistant".
    What I mean is this: why would I go outside the the InDesign Help ecosystem to get help?
    If there was a pool of legal professional users of InDesign, I would be the first one to use it.

  20. Please make 4K and Dual Monitor split view layout remember

    Please make dual monitor more support - i had to use Split Layout one for other one for bigger screen, as i use stretch windows spanning into dual screen, but every time I open an document it kept forgetting Split Layout as I have to adjust scroll bars into near middle between..

    I tried to save workplace along with dual split layout - doesnt work.
