  3. Please add the possibility to create the page height below 73px.

    Especially for the design of web banners sometimes a smaller page height is important.
    Despite frame distances of 0px and web setting an error message appears with a page height of 72px or lower.

  5. It would be great to have a dashboard feature within InDesign so you view all open/tabbed documents all at once in one window,

    It would be great to have a dashboard feature within InDesign so you view all open/tabbed documents all at once in one window. Ideal when you are resizing a lot of web or print ads.
    You could activate by hitting F5 function key.

  6. Major problem with image links

    When I click on an image, the link in the links-window does not show. Note: there's nothing embedded. I'm encountering this all the time and it's very very time-consuming. How can this major problem exist in a software where placing images is really what you do with it all day layouting?
    I really wonder what we pay the monthly fees for when even the most basic stuff is far from working properly.
    Why is Indesign CC detoriating compared to CS6, though we pay more money?
    What are the Updates and the cloud really for?

    Why this is valuable to us…

  7. InDesign not recognizing files

    FILE OPEN does not recognize/show files present on hard drive. Files are present with EXPLORER and other ADOBE CC apps e.g. Photoshop, Bridge
    super annoying!

    Renaming files, rebooting, restarting - nothing
    Creative Cloud APP shows no updates available - InDesign 12.1.0.56 x64

  9. pasting to layer

    When pasting, it would be nice to be able to not have to stop to select layer when there is only one layer open and simultaneously have to stop to address error message saying prev layer used is locked or hidden etc. I frequently just want stuff pasted into doc and don't care at the time which layer it falls on and do not always wish to organize as I paste etc.

    the same principal applies to dragging from cc library too.

  12. Find/replace objects according to their X/Y coordinates

    Dealing with multiple InDesign books comprising thousands of pages, I would need to find all objects located at (or, preferably, within) certain X/Y coordinates, so as to automatically reposition them. You've made halfway to this in CC2018, implementing the size properties in the find/replace dialog box.

  13. Add an option to show Master Page data in the links palette

    Add options for showing Master Page info to the long list of item in the Links Palette options. Should definitely include "Master Page Prefix" and "Master Page Name", might as well include "Based On" and "Number of pages" while you're at it.

  14. Fix the printing bug for text-heavy documents

    In the 2018 InDesign, the text heavy pages won't print. Even, sometimes, if I save as a simple PDF, strip color, change fonts, etc. I've then tried to save it as an .idml file but that won't work now, either. By the way, I could print it fine last week—until I upgraded to 2018's version. I want to revert to 2017 but it has vanished. This is a bug in the new InDesign that needs fixing right now.

  16. full folder information when opening an existing InDesign file

    When I try to open an existing InDesign document from inside the InDesign program I don't get the full range of folders (1). This does not change when going to an upper level and into the detail again despite there is an original InDesign file in one of the hidden folders. I have to go to Windows explorer (2 and 3) to start the file.

  17. New Document dialog: trim safety margins

    Print ads have trim, bleed, and safety margins on the inside of the page. Add the ability to define the safety margin in the New Document dialog. It would be better than using Margins and Columns.

  18. Duplicate and Offset

    I would like a way to override the keyboard shortcuts for "Duplicate and Offset." The shortcuts (option + arrow) are all too easy to hit while trying to navigate through text (using similar shortcuts). Many default shortcuts can be changed or deleted under Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts, but this set is not among them. For some reason the Mac OS doesn't permit shortcut changes to InDesign, either!

  20. Applying Master Pages

    I work with 1000+ pages at a time in InDesign and it's a pain to apply the Left / Right masters.

    I always have to fire up Excel and make a long string with odd and even numbers, just so I can paste it in the "Apply master to pages" box.
