  1. 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.

  2. Eliminate document size limits

    It would be great if there weren't size limit on documents. I am currently working on a very large design for a trade show booth. And I have to do it in Photoshop due to the size limits of InDesign. It is taking so much longer than it needs to because every time I try to transform or resize something, it takes 20 minutes to complete a small task Doing this in InDesign would be way better.

  4. hyphenation

    Have an option in the settings to tern of hyphenations on start up. As a student the hyphens make the work look messy

  5. Overscroll Feature

    It would be so nice to be able to enable overscroll in Indesign like you can in Photoshop. It feels so claustrophobic not being able to overscroll.

  6. 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…

  7. 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

  8. Organise Black Document Presets

    I would like to organise the Black Document Presets by dragging and dropping them into the position that I want. This would save time because I never use the four top presets.

    I would use this feature by dragging A4, A5 and A3 to the top of the list so I don't need to click on View All Presets.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. Option to turn spell check off or skip master pages.

    It would be helpful to be able to skip the spell check in master pages without turning the language to [No Language]. As well as make the "Ignore All" or "Add" feature in spell check work better and actually skip common use for your documents.

  12. 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.

  13. More than 10 page spreads.

    Allow the user to connect much more than 10 pages together in InDesign. I would like this so I can organize a large document with many pages. I am creating a digital book about plant taxonomy and would like to organize the pages this ways so that I can easily navigate this large document taxonomically while in the program. The pages will be printed individually so the layout in the document is not for the printing process but for organization.

  15. Paragraph style doesn't save for captions

    Saving paragraph styles for generating captions. I open many documents a day and would like to save the Paragraph Style. I make my changes and save it. I open another file and have to start over. No preset available. Maybe I'm missing something?

  17. Remember the view pages preference (alternate layout/vert/horiz) for documents

    I go back and forth a lot working with documents with alternate layouts and those without. It would be helpful if the page view preference is saved along with the document instead of switching back and forth manually.

  19. Viewing bleeds on two-page spread

    Would be nice if any objects that bleed off the binding edge would be cropped to the page edge when viewed as a two-page spread.

  20. Tabbing Sequence in Properties window

    When changing an open document's size from Properties window, pressing tab after changing the 'Width' takes you to 'Number of pages' field instead of 'Height' field.

    When working quickly this can disrupt productivity, especially when you're waiting to have '297 pages' created instead of simply changing the canvas to 297mm height. A minor but convenient change.
