  1. Provide a resolution option for indesign

    When I export an image as a jpeg in InDesign and select anything above 72 dpi, I end up with a larger jpeg. This seems to correlate with the ppi, so my original 1612 x 640 would end up as 2149 x 853 with 96 dpi, 8463 x 3360 with 150 dpi and so on. It is very inconvenient because I need my files to be exactly the same size as when I started, but with a higher resolution than 72ppi. It would be awesome and save me time if you could provide an resolution option for indesign that we…

  2. It is essential for non-fiction book authors to have the endnote indices restarted with each chapter (section).

    InDesign must allow endnotes to be continuous OR restarted for each chapter. The latter option is not possible at the moment without splitting a book draft into separate chapter files. This is both very time consuming and prone to error. Authors of documents with thousands of citations cannot realistically use the continuous endnote numbering approach.

  3. Option to replace a master page that is being deleted with a different master page

    When working on long documents, especially while using the book feature, it would be helpful to have the option to replace one master with another. So if I want to delete "Master A", a dialog box would say "Remove Master A and replace with: [list of other master pages to choose from]".

    Currently if I want to remove a master page and replace it, I have to go through all 900 of my pages and apply the replacement master.

  5. Open and modify a pdf document directly in Adobe Indesign CC 2020

    I don't understand why it isn't possible in Adobe Indesign CC 2020 to open pdf document and modify this document directly in the application.

    Affinity Publisher proposes this feature by default and it's works perfectly !

    On the screen you can see on the left Adobe PRO DC and on the right Affinity Publisher without any plugin. All can be edited : texte, image, ...

    This feature will be added in the future ?

    It's really dammage that Affinity Publisher proposes this feature, while Adobe Indesign is older.

  6. show existing guide rows and columns

    When you create guides, then want to change how many rows and/or columns you have, the existing number of guides does not appear in the dialogue box, so if I want to change how many rows/columns I have, I have to count them first. Please just have the numbers for the existing guides in there automatically. Please?

  7. Apply master page according to merge field value

    When using data merge, I'd like to be able to apply master page from merge field.

    Ex.:
    If my merge field value is "Value A", i'd like to apply Master page A.
    If it's "Value B", Master page B.

    It would be a great way to improve customer customization.

    In Indesign 2018 while printing, we can reduce/increase the width/Height of the page with "scale" option.

    Please include this "scaling" option in "Export to PDF" in Indesign, to reduce/increase the page width/Height.

  9. QR Code

    I think it would be great if the QR codes that are generated can be actually tracked. The number of users, where it was scanned, etc. Basically, Google Analytics but only for QR codes.
    It would make things a great deal easier instead of setting up Google Analytics to track this information.

  10. Bookmark highlited

    Once I set a bookmark on a page, I would like the bookmark name to be highlighted in the bookmark panel when I'm on the page. Just like how when an image is selected, the name is highlighted in the links panel.

  11. Free rotation of sheets

    Hi.

    InDesign allows you to rotate the sheet at 90º angles to the right, left and 180º.

    It would be nice to be able to also rotate the sheet freely, as for example allows Photoshop.

    Sometimes when you design, although you can rotate 90º in 90º, you end up having to twist your neck.

    I hope you find the idea useful

    .Thank you.

  13. 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

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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?

  20. Create Document Template Based on Current Document

    Create an absolutely empty document with settings and styles based on an open document.

    Sometimes we need to create a document template based on a ready one. You need to keep all styles, master pages, color sets, etc. At the same time, the working pages should remain empty.
