  1. Interactive Form Fields need to be fully editable (i.e. Color, paragraph styles, Sample Text)

    When exporting an Interactive PDF from InDesign, we still need to be able to assign Colors and Paragraph Styles AND retain the FPO copy we have typeset in the Text box.

    For example, in my attached screenshot, when I choose to export as an Interactive PDF, I need to see all of the copy within the box show up exactly as shown. I have it set up so that it still feels slightly designed (despite being a form) and worded so that the client can follow along and replace certain parts with specific language. Right now upon export, this copy…

  3. Add a preference option to allow InDesign to give you PDF import options when you drag a PDF into an open InDesign window

    When you drag a PDF into InDesign, it only loads the cursor with the first page of the PDF. In order to load multiple pages or specific pages of a PDF, you need to place the PDF and tick the box to show PDF import options.

    Would be nice to have a preference to turn on so that when you drag in a multiple page PDF into an open ID window, it pops up those PDF import options dialogue box automatically. Of course, if it's just a single page PDF, it will just load the single page into the cursor.…

  4. Text form field with several columns

    In the case of a text form field, text areas that extend over several columns are automatically recognised and can also be continued in the form.

    Good for the following use case: If templates are created where the text is displayed in columns, it would be good if the form fields could also be linked together. So that the maximum number of characters is automatically distributed over the specified number of columns.

  5. Export to image file with naming option to include artboard

    Why, when you can do this in other Adobe products, it does not exist in the LAYOUT software?????????

    HOW IS THIS NOT NATIVE ALREADY??? Please make this your priority for next update. I am sure many on this forum use ID for exporting several if not 30 or so sizing layouts for a single ad or social media space????

  6. Set default image editor

    When editing a lot of placed images, we have to specify the right editor each time, over and over. InDesign has to generate a long list of possible editors (and other apps that are never uses to edit a photo, such as browsers). This takes time.
    Please make a preference to set the default editor - and a keyboard shortcut to load the selected image in that editor.

    I know, we can tell the OS to open all images with e.g. Photoshop, but that is not a real solution, since it breaks some other workflows.

    Just give the possibility to…

  7. Toggle pages of a linked file

    Much like the 'Object Layer Options', can we please have a 'Linked Pages Options' so we can toggle which page of a PDF/INDD file is shown?

  9. Exporter/Importer son espace de travail personnalisé

    Dans Photoshop/Illustrator, nous pouvons exporter/importer notre espace de travail et pas dans InDesign. Dommage car avec une mise à jour comme celle de 2021, je passe plus d'une heure à réinstaller tout mon espace.

  10. Find and replace also looks at Layer Names

    I use layers for multiple versions and when modifying layer names (as a callout on the appropriate layer) would also like the Search and Replace Function to look at the layer names as well. Example - often same files are used from quarter to quarter and it is necessary to update the date on layer or a particular code included in the layer name.

  11. In the Arrange option, may we please go back and forth from a multiple to one and back again without having to close one of the windows?

    Last year I could switch views in "Arrange" from 2 docs to one, back and forth. Now, I have to close one to get full screen with the second and reopen if I want to see them both side by side. Can you please switch back to the old method? This is a time-waster and frustrating, as it used to be in place. Thank you.

  12. Text Wrap path Selection

    If we lock the Text Layer if it’s above the Objects’ Layer that has graphic elements on it, and we want to “Wrap” an object from that layer, we can see the Wrap Path which is Editable by Pen Tool & Direct Selection Tool,
    When Wrap Path is active and then we want to select just an anchor point by making a marquee selection from outside (like Illustrator) to select a single anchor point the path disappears and we see disappeared path even mouse click button is pressed, every time we will have to click on the anchor point to…

  17. Indexing by paragraph style...like TOC feature.

    Useful for creating a roster for a large group. You would be able to create an index by paragraph style, like the functionality of Table of Contents, except that the same name on different pages wouldn't create a new entry.

  18. A keyboard shortcut that forces InDesign to look within its enclosing folder for links and fonts.

    Currently if you are working with files on a VPN connected server InDesign tries to link to images and fonts on that server. Even if you have the full packaged file on your local drive InDesign still tries to link to to the VPN server. So I would like to see a way of overriding this, and I think a keyboard shortcut to force InDesign to link locally would be a good solution.
