  2. Adjust colours directly in the gradient panel

    In InDesign, I'd like the option to edit colours from directly in the gradient panel, as in Illustrator (double click to access colour slider)

    Having this feature added would greatly improve workflow - at the moment, I have to add colours to a swatch panel then drag them onto my gradient slider which becomes a very tedious process when making micro-adjustments.

  3. All those missing Pantone Colours

    Has anyone else out there found themselves wondering why Adobe products don't have the very latest Pantone swatches installed as standard? I have a situation today where a customer has found a specific Pantone colour they want to use in a project - but it's a Pantone Plus colour, PMS 2374. If you try to add this swatch in InDesign it won't be there.

    It seems that the only way I can use this PMS colour is to buy a bit of software from Pantone called 'Pantone Color Manager' that costs £90.

    I just find myself thinking that I already…

  4. Update Pantone colour books in InDesign to match Illustrator

    Update Pantone colour books in InDesign to match Illustrator. If it's in Illustrator why is it not in InDesign?
    Or is it a bug? Sorry, "feature"?

  6. Color management application Adobe CC 2019

    Application CC 2019, Indesign, Illustrator, Bridge can not synchronize color settings.
    You can not save color settings in color management for individual applications.
    After restarting the application, it is the default setting

  7. Could we have a 'go to colour' link within Indesign like you do for image links please

    It would be really helpful when editing colours within an document to be able to see where a colour has been used before deleting it. I know you can always replace it then convert back but it would be helpful to see where it was being used beforehand.

  8. CC Libaries won't load even though I'm signed in to my account

    CC Libaries won't load even though I'm signed in to my account. I'm trying to get to the color swatches that I've added to my library

  9. Merge variables for color that can be used in styles and as swatches

    Merge doc variables for colour.

    An option on the colour swatch to add a reference to link to a merged variable from a csv for a hex, rgb or cmyk colour. This would allow specific swatches to update styles in a document for text color, lines, background colors etc if a document defined style uses that particular swatch.

  10. Gradients saved in Library

    Is there a way that gradients can be added to the Adobe Library, like how we can add gradients to colors/swatches? I spend a lot of time making gradients in InDesign that are part of branding for the clients I work with. Being able to save the custom gradients to the Library through InDesign to be used in other Adobe programs would be a huge help.

  11. Same Gradient-Tool as in Premiere Pro?

    In generell - why not make all tools more consitent? Gradients in InDesign are still way behind Illustrator, while both lack the elegant, intuitive rubber band of Premiere Pro's gradients. I think, everyone would love the Premiere Pro-version in InDesign (and Illustrator, too, because it doesn't feel that fluid there!).

  13. Warning for Registration usage

    WAY too many designers use Registration as a color in their jobs. This is a MAJOR mistake for print design. Indesign desperately needs a warning that can not be disabled every time Registration is attempted to be used, warning designers that it is NOT the same as Black, nor is it a "rich" black, and it WILL cause problems in printing.

  14. Copy CMYK, RGB values in Color Picker as text

    I would like to be able to copy RGB or CMYK values as text so I can paste them elsewhere. This would be helpful in my daily work where I make color palettes and then describe them with text in a brand guide. See the attached screenshot where I am currently updating CMYK and RGB values by hand from the color picker.

  17. Enable color palette folders to move from the bottom of the swatches list

    I want to be able to move the palette folder I'm working from to the top of the swatches list. If I have a document that has several colors, I have to scroll to the bottom to find the folder with my template colors.

  18. Paste Text Only from Other InDesign Documents

    We regularly copy and paste from other InDesign documents. It is really frustrating that every time we do this the incoming swatches and styles are also pasted into the document, resulting in extensive lists of swatches and styles with similar names. Much like the "Preferences - Clipboard Handling - When Pasting Text and Tables from Other Applications - Text Only" option, it would be incredibly useful to offer this feature for "Other InDesign Documents" as well.

  19. Option to merge swatches when importing from another document

    When Importing Swatches from another document produce a dialog similar to when importing Text Styles. I should be able to choose which ones i want to import and be able to decide what to do if there are swatches of the same name. In some cases i would like it to overwrite the swatch on the active document with the swatch that exists on the imported documents swatches.

  20. Color Picker Shortcut

    There are a bunch of ways to select color in InDesign, but the easiest and omnipotent way is using color picker, unfortunately, there's no way to call it out in Indesign unless you double-click the fill/stroke icon in the tools panel

    and theres no way to add a customised shortcut to the color picker panel as well. I really wish to see this feature in future InDesign
