  2. Serait-il possible de faire des filets seulement sur un ou plusieurs cotés d'un bloc texte (comme sur une cellule de tableau) ?

    J'ai pouvoir appliquer à un bloc texte un filet de contour seulement sur un ou plusieurs cotés du bloc — un peu comme cela est déjà possible pour sur une cellule de tableau. Merci

  3. Options d'enchaînement dans un style de paragraphe débutant en page suivante

    Ma requête concerne les styles de paragraphes ayant l'option d'enchaînement débutant en page suivante : si l'en-tête de page comporte plusieurs paragraphes identiques successifs, je souhaiterais que l'option de saut de page ne soit active que sur le premier paragraphe.

  5. Please make it possible that we can have a number is paragraphs of text that link to the actual page number that is being referenced.

    Please make it possible that we can have a number in paragraphs of text that link to the actual page number that is being referenced. So if the page number is changed, then the numbers in the paragraph should also reflect the changes.

  6. Filter & Labels in (Object/Character/Paragraph) Style Panels

    As in Photoshop's and InDesign's Layer Panel it would be very helpfull to have the option for colored Labels/Flags.
    Also, like in Photoshop, a filter/search option on top of the Style Panels would help organizing complex files (newspaper/magazine templates) and speeding up the process.

  7. Type and select style from drop down list

    Need to type and select the style from the drop down list. Currently we need to find and select the style using mouse scrolling. It will take time when we have lots of paragraph, character styles in InDesign document. Do this for all the drop down list available in InDesign palette. For example, we need to delete a style and replace with another style.

  8. New "Justification Auto-Correct" Feature

    Justification, while pleasing to the eye from the perspective of an entire page, creates problems. Hyphenation can correct this, to some degree, but it too has its problems. In the end, when justifying text, certain lines of text end up being scrunched while many others leave wide open spaces between words.

    In doing my best to correct for these problems, I tend to make most use of the horizontal scale feature. I often find that most of these visual blemishes (scrunching or overly-wide word spacing) can be corrected by either reducing the horizontal scale down to about 97% (in the…

  9. Copy FX

    Copy / paste layer FX would be very helpful... Much like the Copy Layer Style of PS.

  10. Section specific controll of the "based on" featues in paragraph styles

    Add a checkbox to each menu under the paragraph style options, to let the user check if a set of options should be inherited or overwritten.

    A bit like the way we define specific live attributes when creating object styles.

    The goal is to give the user greater control and insight into what attributes are overwritten, and easily add/remove/change them.

  11. Allow a character style to be a percent of the paragraph it's in

    For example, I have a style at 12 points for a paragraph and need to place in it a couple of glyphs from a different font, but at 11 points. If I could say character style X is 96% of paragraph style Y, that would be great.

    To my fortune every instance of my "different" 11 font has been surrounded by the same 12 paragraph, but if I had to use this elsewhere at a different size, I'd have to have another character style for that new size.

  12. A preference choice to disable the application of local formatting.

    A preference choice to disable the application of local formatting. This setting would have fine tune control (similar to the eye dropper tool) to allow some local formatting, such as kerning.
    This feature would be ideal for templates as well as team based workflow.

  13. Duplicated style sheets should not override the original's keyboard shortcut

    When you duplicate a text style that has a shortcut key assigned to it, the duplicated style keeps the shortcut key and the original style loses it (it gets greyed out).

    What should happen is that the new style has no shortcut key assigned to it, and the existing one keeps it. I see no reason for the current behaviour.

  14. I wish to replace Minion Pro (which I never have used and never will use) with Arial

    You've made Minion Pro your default font. I want to use Arial as my default font.
    You've made 1 point your default line width. I want to use 0 point as my default line width.

  15. DIV STYLE Panel FOR EPUB/HTML

    Using hundreds of anchored text boxes (with Object styles) within threads is time-consuming but necessary to provide <div> classes for css.
    It would be MUCH quicker if there was an InDesign Div Styles panel where I could apply a class for css to a section that needs different styling between PDF and ePub/html versions. These sections often contain 5 different Paragraph Styles so I need to add some kind of wrapper.

  16. Spacing & increment styles

    The inclusion of preset spacing styles (for individual objects) would be very helpful. You could set up a several spacing increment styles and have a one click approach to spacing. this would be very helpful for catalog design work.

    How about creating a method for users to define new and/or different corner options?

  18. Ability to set Style Override Highlighter as "on" or "off" in preferences

    Currently the Style Override Highlighter [+] in the various styles panels functions as a toggle on a per app basis, not as an "on" or "off" preference setting. This means it can't be set on a document by document basis, as enabling it will actually toggle the setting to "off" if a user has the setting switched "on" in their copy of InDesign.

    Would greatly appreciate the ability to set this as a normal InDesign preference - ie one that can be set at application/document level, the same as almost every other setting in the program.

  19. Retained overwrites

    While doing heavy make-up of book texts I often need to get in a line or to space out a line. Doing this without having countless paragraph overrides (with the danger that by clicking "clear override" or applying a script everything would be lost) the only possibility so far is to make numerous paragraph copies, e.g., "body", "body+5", "body+10", "body-5" etc.
    A possible solution could be to have the paragraph style definition with some kind of "ranges", maybe "Tracking: 0 - +30" with a default value "0". And the actual value could be selected in a panel. Hopefully someone has…
