  1. Save as clears history

    Save as clears the document undo history, i'd rather it wouldn't. Say you accidentally saved a document in stead of saving as — next you 'save as' so your new work isn't lost — next you wanna undo all the stuff you've done do re-save the original document, but you can't because the history is lost.

  2. Make conversion of older ID documents faster loading

    I had the occasion to open a couple of older inDesign documents that are stored on my NAS drive. At first, I thought it was the network speed that took so long until I saw the popup dialog box explaining that conversion was in process. I can't believe how long it took to open the document. Am I the only one experiencing this or is inDesign becoming unproductive?

  3. Because I file share with others, it would be nice to have the option to auto embed all links with InDesing.

  4. Prevent multiple sound files on a page from playing at the same time in an Interactive PDF

    Have 2 buttons on a page in indesign cc 2018, each starts a sound file playing, if reader clicks on one and then the second both files play at the same time. I want to click on one button and have it play a sound file and turn off the other sound files if they are playing. Think of it as a menu of sound files in a list but I want only one to be allowed to play at a time.

  5. Search window improvement suggestion

    Hi there, would it be possible to have an option in the search window for colors, fonts(replacements), and styles, etc... to search on a specific number of pages instead of the whole document, article, or selected...? i could use this on a daily basis...

    Many thanks from Belgium!
    Tim

  6. Open a new file and see the full page upon opening

    When you open a document, the upper left corner should appear in the upper left corner of the window. Then you won't have to scroll to see the page. Currently it opens on the pasteboard with the upper left corner in the middle of the window so it's mostly hidden.

    So annoying. I hope you can fix it.

  11. Bring back recent files

    I loved seeing recent files every time I hit open because I could find what I was looking for with a glance. Working with graphics, I am very visual, so these thumbnails saved me a lot of time.

  12. Saving

    It would be helpful if there were a revert feature is a TIME-STAMPED revert to previously saved - Or revert to the first time you exported a pdf... Something to that sorts would help if you've already hit save more than once.

  13. Email Invoices

    Its 2017, how about you start making an option available to email invoices for Creative Cloud? I have to go to 3 different accounts every month to print these manually for my accounts department. Its RIDICULOUS.

  14. F&C queries stored on server

    In stead of storing the xml files in the user folder, making it possible to store them on a server too and be able to refer to that folder with a shortcut. As for the scripts you could have the "user queries" and the app queries. This is handy when you have to control more then one computer in your department.

  15. Save As location

    Right now the Save As location seems to be the PREVIOUS folder location where I saved a file.
    However, in other programs like Photoshop, the default location goes to the same folder as opened file.
    Consulted help center and got no solution other than rerouting every time I save as a file. PLEASE also make the default Save As location in InDesign to the same location as opened file!! I'm working on like 3 or more projects at the same time and have to reroute the save location all the time! In fact I accidentally overwrote an important working file…

  17. Add conditions to Data Merge

    There should be conditions in data merge to include or exclude text based on the data in a record. For example, consider a set of business cards. Some users might have a Twitter handle or mobile number, some might not. Currently there is no way to omit empty fields and any text that might go with it, like an "M" and tab to prefix a mobile number and the line break after it. There should be a way to make that text conditional on whether the field is empty or what is in it.

    e.g. IF @mobile<>"",M^t@mobile^p,,)

    If the mobile…

  19. Provide a less expensive license for small businesses/nonprofits.

    I am a small business owner and a loyal Adobe customer since the very first versions of Photoshop and Illustrator. I think it would help your customer base, if you do not plan to provide a perpetual license ever again, if there were to be a discounted license for small businesses and/or non-profits who do not have the yearly income to support a $600+ a year expense.

    Of course, one would have to provide proof, such as non-profit status or small-business tax return.

    Personally, I wish you'd return to perpetual licenses and make all the cloud-related features an additional fee…
