  1. Path to be for every action (open/save/import ...) the same in dialog

    Indesign in CS had the feature that every path in every dialogue was the same (when you opened a doc the import path was the same as well). Nowadays I feel like using Xpress all over again: every dialog has the path it had from the last access (open would be e.g. on C:\, place file on D:\foo\bar and so on. Can there maybe a checkbox to sync paths between the open dialogues that indesign manages?

  2. Querverweise

    Querverweise in andere Dokumente funktioniert nicht zuverlässig. Entwerden stürzt INDesign ständig ab oder die Performance ist so stark eingeschränkt, dass man quasi in InDesign nicht mehr arbeiten kann, da die Dokumente, auf die verwiesen wird ständig im Hintergrund geöffnet und wieder geschlossen werden.

  3. I opened my Indesign program and a message asked if I could provide input on how to improve Indesign. Here is my reply.

    I tried to write this response in the "Help Improve Adobe Products" window that opens up on launch of Indesign, but I ran out of space:

    Indesign has layer after layer after layer of instructions on how do even the most common things. The problem is that in order to understand one layer, you have to understand at least the terminology and concepts of the other layers. These days, when you open the box for many devices there is a quick set up document included. I recommend that you do something like that. But not with instructional videos. Someitimes you…

  5. Change ID's file locating from absolute addresses to relative

    When I change the name of my project folder, housing all of my ID and art/font folders, InDesign stops linking to the art folder. This is annoying. Is this happening because my art files are in a folder named something other than Links?

  6. Show options when placing artwork

    In previous versions, I didn't have to click the options button to see the options for placing a graphic or PDF. The current version makes me click an option button. It makes no sense. Just show the options. Always. And have the program remember what you did the last time, or make make it so you can set a default the way you want it. Having the options visible without having to click another button would save me a lot of time. You had it right before.

  7. A archive/backup save feature

    I recently was working on a highly important document. InDesign crashed AT THE SAME TIME as it was in the process of saving the file. I do regular saves, but because of how it crashed I couldn't revert to an earlier saved version of my file. My new workflow is to regularly save my work and I use sequential numbers e.g. filename-v01, filenam- v02. I also sometimes will use save as and create a new file called filename-backup and then I will have to do another save as to revert the document back to filename.indd. What would suit my workflow…

  8. Native AI support.

    Using links within AI to keep source files small is useless if INDD is a part of the workflow because INDD will not place AI files unless PDF compatibility is turned on. Turning on PDF compatibility in AI when saving embeds all links so linking files instead of embedding them makes no difference.

    Please make INDD able to place AI files that have not been saved with PDF compatibility turned on.

  11. Indesign Lite, but different to the already suggested

    Indesign comes with a lot of features you never use. Features like the absolutely annoying and nasty Creative Cloud and its client, the even nastier CCX, the constant updates which lose compatibility between almost every next version and the previous one, the CC library which doesn't work at all (it should host any kind of object, but it doesn't), InCopy. Remove all that and let us just use what we need.

  17. Combo box and list box csv import

    Hello, I was wondering if you all could make a system for Excel or CSV data to be imported into interactive elements like combo boxes and list boxes. Its a real pain to manually input an array of items and also not have the ability to edit them in their place. The current process requires deleting an element in the list, and retyping it and then manually type in alot of options. Imagine if having to make a combo box that included all 50 states.

  18. Embed file option while placing the image in the page

    Many-a-times after placing a Image, we need to Embed that as we don't want that to stay connected to the source.
    That's why what we want is that before placing a Image, there should be a Link/Embed Option as there is in Illustrator so that I do not have to manually go to Links Panel and Embed it from there for every single Image. It will faster the work process
