  1. Bigger Icons

    I really wish that this software was more user-friendly. The icons should be bigger and clearly labeled. Like the buttons at the self-checkout at the grocery store.

  2. Find/change table stroke

    When using Find/Change and selecting the tab to search for object attributes it's possible to search for a specific stroke width, color etc. But it does not look for that in tables. So if you don't use table or cell formating you have to select and find those attributes by hand. Couldn't there be a tab for searching attributes in tables as well?

  5. Keep an object in place when aligning with another object

    In Illustrator if you have two objects selected, and then alt-click one, the object that was alt-clicked will stay in place when you align them together. Having this feature in InDesign would be helpful

  6. trial

    I have not been able to productively use the 7 day trial period due to my delayed preparations of the contents of a brochure design.
    I would like to request a brand new 7 days credit to give Indesign a shot to accomplish my task.
    Very truly yours,

  7. Add Button Functionality for the Ability to Toggle Conditional Formating Layers

    It would be amazing to be able to toggle the layers under conditional formatting with Buttons. We have an Instructor Guide and a Participant Guide in the same document and the customer wants everything in the same document. Then the learner or teacher would be able to toggle the text with a button in an interactive PDF.

  8. Changes to the Interactive>Tab Order dialog

    I do many interactive forms with hundreds of fields, and use InDesign for most of its creation, as it's easier for me to create customized filed names. It's just very difficult to rearrange tab order with the inability to see more of the interactive names and needing to scroll up/down in such a small area.

    I would like to see this dialog more like many of the regular windows (layers, paragraph styles, etc.). Perhaps also a way to link right to where the field is in the document (like the links window).

    Would make this task MUCH easier.

  9. Integrate InDesign ME with InDesign

    I currently require occasional use of right-to-left text and therefore require InDesign ME. A major problem with the ME version, however, is that the help page defaults to Arabic. Since I’ve chosen English يدعم العربية as my language choice, one would think an English option would also be available, but no such luck. It really isn't clear to me why the ME version needs to be a separate product rather than simply integrating the right-left features directly into the regular version

  10. Allow the cursor to change from black to red, or any colour in spectrum (colour blind)

    Create a colour cursor option to change colour from black to red/green/blue/etc. I find extremely difficult to follow the black cursor in InDesign as it competes with the various Application Frames./dropdown menus.

  11. Hyperlinks Problems

    There used to be options to remove hyperlinks and to have the option to open hyperlinks in a new tab. After the most recent update it seems these options are now not available. Whats the deal?

  13. flickering

    InDesign flickers white and all artwork/text disappears. I have to reposition my window to make it reappear. It keeps happening every few minutes. I have completely removed all Adobe CC products and reinstalled, as well as deleted my preferences and work spaces. Please help.

  14. Automatic drilling-down in index preview when new entry is added

    When I use the key combination Ctrl-Alt-Shift-[ to add a new index entry, I can't immediately tell if it worked. I have to scroll to the right spot in the index preview and drill down through the alphabet and layers of headings and subheadings to find the new entry and see that it looks as expected.

    This really slows me down. I find myself doing this over and over again. And I have to do, it, because if for some reason the key combo didn't work (say, because one of the keys wasn't depressed enough) and I didn't notice, it…

  16. Add a new menu item to the menu bar: Indexes

    Ideally, indexing should have a menu all its own. The fact that it's only got a panel that opens from the Windows menu suggests it's an afterthought, and it's very limiting, because it means I can't create my own keyboard shortcuts for indexing functions.

  17. Ability to change default settings for new index entries

    I use the I use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Alt-Shift-[ to add new index entries. But it defaults to "current page" and I don't want that because my document will be converted to ePub, and e-books don't have fixed pages. I want the default to be "next # of paragraphs: 1."

    The ability to change the default settings for new index entries would solve my problem.

  18. "Teach" Content Aware Fit

    Is there a way to "teach" InDesign how the content aware fit function should work. As you can see in my attached image, it's actually cropping a big part of the image out.

    Thanks

  19. Menu size control

    I need to create MOOC video captures with Id, Ps and Ai. There is a fabulous option : change UI text size in AI 2019 that should be placed in all CC tools. Especially with a need for more visible menus in video captures. After all, education trains future users. :)
