  1. Hochzahlen

    Ich finde es klasse, daß wenn ich Fußnoten zahlen schreibe, was ja meistens in Büchern die Quellenangaben sind, das die sich automatisch aktualisieren. Beim. Inhaltsverzeichnis geht es ja auch, bitte das für die Fußnotenzahlen auch machen. Vielen Dank 🙂 Bleiben Sie gesund.

  2. Expand the InDesign “book” feature?

    I’ve been indexing newsletters for a historical society for years. (37 volumes/years) There are 65 InDesign files in the book. Some files are by individual issue and I’ve compressed some files for each issue year. When I compile the index, several page numbers have dropped out and a few items have dropped too. Once I have the index file saved and try to exit, the software freezes. Is there any way of helping me?

  3. Rules for master page

    It would be great to have rules for master page. For example if I have a template for a product data sheet with a master pager for the first page, a master page for content and a master page for the last page it would be great for InDesign to automatically apply the desired master page to the proper pages. With this option the template would be easier and faster to use

  4. Data merge to a formatted table for multiple catalog listing on one page in a single table.

    I'm revising on a 180 page catalog that was originally created page by page, row by row with InDesign. The process was incredibly tedious and the person doing it eventually quit due to all the stress that it caused her. I would like to revise this catalog using data merge from .csv files but as you can see from the attached file some actual layout capabilities are needed and not all tables are consistent. There are also some cells in tables that need to be merged because they contain duplicate information. So far InDesign as only been able to create…

  5. Revert back to exact screen placement after Screen Preview (shift+w)

    When pressing escape after screen preview, the view resettles on the middle of the page (but keeps the zoom level) rather than resettling where you were working. This makes flipping between normal and screen preview mode a bit less seamless, as you have to keep scrolling back to the part you were working on after previewing.

  6. Master Page View - Toggle On/Off

    When on any document page (not a master page), add the ability to toggle the view of master page items on and off. Would be very helpful to view master page elements vs non-master page elements.

  7. Be able to cross reference images as well as paragraph text

    Be able to cross-reference images as well as text so that when you click the lead and the end the cross-reference shows up better.

  8. "Hidden" bleed for facing pages

    It would be nice to have the ability to set a "hidden" bleed in the bund, when working on a brochure or book with facing pages. Because some print-manufacturers need that and currently the only way to get around of this, is to seperate the pages an manually add the bleed where the bund was.

  9. Multiple Image Export With Individual Names (JPG/PNG)

    I want to export several pages, all in different formats, as JPG or PNG, each with a unique and specific name.

    The 'rename multiple files' Tool don't work here, cause each name is completly different.

    Currently you have 2 Options:


    1. Export each page one-by-one and name the file right.
      (If you have over 20+ Pages, thats not fun)


    2. Export all pages in one go and then rename every single file.


    Update (Edit): If you gave each page with a new size individual name (for example names of the different master pages) you could use this when export so each file…

  10. allow pasting from left page to right page in master- exactly the same location

    Every time I make a new document- my masters can be complex but the left and right side of the same master are a pain to make exactly the same.

    So either make copy and paste work better in masters or add a feature that allows left and right sides to be lined up the same.
    I want to be able to set all my parts and then set guides on the left side—
    and then copy them ALL- guides, date, page numbers, doc name and other items to EXACTLY paste in the right hand side.
    Right now Paste In…

  11. Show Page Dimensions permanently in Document Window

    With more than one tool to change general/individual page sizes, keeping an eye on these numbers is crucial.

    Please make page dimensions visible at all time – e.g. in the slug/pasteboard area next to every page or in the Pages thumbnails, at least as some kind of tooltip or popup info. This behavior could be activated with a preferences checkbox. Thanks.

  12. reorder bookmarks

    Let's say we have a document 40 pages long. The usefulness of all 40 pages vary because of end-user knowledge.
    As such,
    Master users will preferably only read 5 out of those 40 pages.
    Experienced will read 15 pages
    Intermediates 30 pages
    First time users 40 pages.

    Now this already is possible with a plug-in, but I fail to understand why Adobe don't see plug-ins as a clear sign that users want / need the functionality.

    Ok, what would be great is being able to script a user end button that calls the sort bookmarks function. The PDF would already…

  15. Have ruler bar be on the right, too, to drag out guides when zoomed in on right side of doc etc.

    To prevent having to zoom out and/or change position in a document when trying to precisely visually align a guide

  16. Thank for new versions - but the scroll button the is a dull grey atop another shade of grey is not visible enough for quick work -

    i have worked as a designer for many years - please consider colour and contrast in the scroll feature for pages. As i try to proof a manuscript against another file, i must constantly search for the scroll tab in order to read more text - even a lighter shade of grey or something complementary would help the worker.
    thanks

  18. Changing document defaults warning

    Many beginning users often change settings without an object selected (but they think do). These settings include paragraph styles, character styles, object styles, effects, text wrap. While this is technically a feature, it causes all kinds of confusion to the beginner. How about a warning dialog box stating what they are about to do and give them an option of canceling?

  19. Chapter Number in ToC Numbering

    I'm working with a long document and it really does not make sense to use section numbering so that I can insert a prefix to page numbers (and that has to be done manually for each section anyway). Why are there not building blocks for the ToC or at the least, the ability to insert a variable?
