  2. Please add a lock button to Document Setup dialog

    Add a lock button to the page sizing in the Document Setup dialog box. That way, I could make dimensional changes to a document size without busting out the calculator. THANKS

  3. Page naming

    It would be great if I can edit page numbers to names by double clicking on the numbers

  4. Lorem ipsum reminder before Save.

    If "Lorem ipsum" appears in the file, when Save is tapped, before saving , a "Lorem ipsum Alert" should appear, so that this placeholder does not find its way into print in error. This suggestion applies to ID, PS and AI.

  6. Preview document images in finder

    Mojave can't preview INDD files in finder...only shows a generic indd icon for the thumbnail. Other adobe apps show generic icons in finder until you click on them, and then they show a larger preview. I was able to preview at any stage in finder on older operating systems. This is a HUGE downgrade. (I worked with a tech in this, who confirmed it was a software issue and not a setting to be changed on my system.)

  7. Dynamic Color Swatches with Data-Merge

    Make the Swatches dynamic with Data-Merge so that you can enter a Colorcode in the Excel document and it changes the Swatch with the same name or something like that.

  8. Option to name pages

    Hi, I think it would be really handy if the pages would have a rename feature. Rather than them being labelled page 1, 2 etc in the Pages tab, the User could label them as needed.

  9. Be able to set a keyboard shortcut for everything in menus

    Duplicate spread isn't an option for something you can set a keyboard shortcut for (which I would use all the time if it was!) and I notice that a lot of other ones aren't options either

  10. Datamerge with several different datasources for different versions

    Version: CC19 (14.0.1) on Mac OS 10.13.6 (High Sierra)

    When there are datamerge-placeholders that are not in the datasource, the export aborts and you have to delete the placeholder.
    When these placeholders are on invisible layers the same happens.

    In my case, sometimes i get different datasources for different versions of the same document so i put the different version on a new layer and make it invisible until i use the corresponding datasource for it.

    Maybe a choice for the user to continue nontheless (only when placeholders are on invisible layers, to protect the user from using the wrong…

  11. Hiding Pages in a Document

    It would be helpful to hide pages in a way similar to hiding columns in Excel. I don't want the information gone, I just need to minimize it so I can focus on the specific pages I need. Accessing this action via a right click in the pages menu would be ideal.

  12. Bigger preview in Import pdf panel

    It is hard to see the PDF preview in the Import PDF panel.
    It would be great if you could choose the size of the thumbnail or adjust the size of the entire panel.

  14. Ability to change the page of the linked pdf

    I would love to see the ability to change the page number of a linked pdf in the links palette - as it stands you have to relink file, click 'show import options' (which then remains on when you don't want it to) navigate to the pdf then click through what page you want to display. It's slow and clunky. A simple icon next to the link where you could select the desired page would speed my workflow up massively.

  16. command hot keys not working

    Shift, option keys aren't working. Proportions won't constraint while holding the shift key and items won't duplicate while holding option key.

  19. FINDING AND HIGHLIGHTING DOCUMENTS IN THE BOOK PANEL.

    Hi

    I have a long document, each page sets to one document file (e.g. 200 pages equal 200 documents in the Book Panel!). Each book file has own title, some titles are short and some longer.

    Finding documents by their own name is necessary for me through this long list and finding by scroll down and up to find a specific document is time-wasting, boring task.

    I didn’t find any features in the Book Panel pop-up menu. Do you know any tricks to find a document by its own title among the many documents in the Book panel?

    Also, some…

  20. Indesign work files have huge file size

    I am used to work with older versions of indesign, and sometimes quark. The file sizes I am used to is around 300 Mb at most. On the newer indesign I get file sizes up to almost 3 GB! All the images I use combined in the document is not even a quart of that size, and I do not embed any images. This takes up a lot of space and makes it hard to work in a network environment.
