  1. Please add an interactive box for images + option to set font color for interactive text boxes

    I recently started to make interactive PDF forms in InDesign (which is a great tool!), but I was surprised to find out that:


    1. you cannot add an interactive box for images

    2. you cannot set color to the assigned font in interactive text boxes...

    Seems like some basic functions like this are still missing in InDesign, so it would be greatly appreciated if you could add it to your to-do list.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

  2. I would like to see a slimmed down version of InDesign much like the photoshop

    I would like a slimmed down version of InDesign. I have used the product from pagemaker thru freehand and InDesign CC. But I have a need only once a month. I have had to deal with people using MS publisher and that is the only other layout version by a major Software supplier and it is less than a satisfactory product. I am a computer consultant and seasoned product marketing manager and the need seems to be there. I would be glad to test such a product as I have had many years doing alpha/beta software. Please consider this request…

  5. Auto anchor table cells in forms to export correctly to tag trees in PDF

    Clients frequently want accessible forms made in table format. Please set the cell fields (graphic cells) to auto-anchor and correctly export to the tag tree in PDFs. Currently, the exports do not work well with assistive devices and require much remediation--sometimes more time to remediate than actually designing the file correctly. Note that all USA Federal Government publications, forms, etc., MUST meet Federal law regarding accessibility. Remediation in exported PDFs needs to be minimal. Thank you.

  10. Better functionality when placing Excel 2020 textcells referring to another cell

    Depending on InDesign and Excel version the results differ when placing Excel text cells referring to another cell. I have a big financial report with lots of text references, it would be great if this worked with latest versions of InDesign and Excel.

  14. Option to color tag indesign documents

    I would love to have an option of colour tagging InDesign documents on the Home screen, making it easier to find and discern similar looking front pages or document names. This is helpful when managing various manuals.
    Even more so when is is supported by a filter (like Acrobat comments).

  15. Confusing wording of options in layers palett

    There are two Options in the submenu of the layers palett, that make no sense. It might be a translation-issue with the german version. When the options are "on" they are actually "off". That's confusing...

  16. Please add support for Server operating systems.

    Multi-user environments are prevalent with Citrix which needs better support for all Adobe products.

  17. I would like to be able to download/print a list of all linked files with their full pathways.

    I would like to be able to download/print a list of all linked files with their full pathways. Currently if you highlight all the files on the links panel, then right click, then choose Copy Info, you get a complete list of files, but not the full path.

    Having the full path will help me identify when and how the image was created, what category the image falls into, and where the original artwork is located in the warehouse.

  18. Show picture as it is being resized

    In CS5 we could drag the corner of a picture and the picture would change as you pulled down. The new version only changes the frame and you can't see what the picture is doing. We print over 1,000 pictures in our weekly publication and this takes a HUGE amount of extra time to get the picture to the size we need it in the frame.

  19. Please add free templates that come with a paid subscription to InDesign and Illustrator.

    It's ridiculous that I am paying for InDesign and Illustrator, and I don't have access to adobe stock. I need some templates and I shouldn't have to pay additionally for templates for InDesign and Illustrator.

  20. Caption Setup Metadata Dimensions in Inches OR ImageCatalog.jsx Script Labels in inches

    Hello,

    I would like to be able to add dimensions in inches in Caption Setup.

    This is useful for creating a reference contact sheet for printing graphics of many different sizes

    Alternatively, could ImageCatalog.jsx Script be edited to include a dimensions label in inches?

    Thanks
