  3. Create an IntelliJ / Webstorm plugin which supports Adobe scripting

    Please consider creating an IntelliJ / Webstorm plugin which allows the scripting an debugging of all Adobe applications like Adobe Indesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, ...

    This could be a viable alternative to the current ExtendScript Toolkit application, which is outdated, full of bugs, and lakes important scripting features.

    The new plugin should support ...
    - All Adobe DOM's
    - Full code autocompletion
    - Code hints
    - Connecting to the Adobe applications, allowing real time debugging...
    - ...

  5. Scripts integration in the InDesign Templates

    Currently we're running the scripts for particular templates separately, but it'll be good, if we have an option in InDesign to integrate those scripts in the same templates. So running of scripts will become mandatory without depending on the users to run.

  6. Стало плохо работать

    Добрый день, после обновления Adobe InDesign CC 2019 - стало все очень медленно работать, нету возможности работать, сообщите пожалуйста что сделать что бы все опять заработало, в программе после каждого действия начинает крутится курсор обработки информации, я думал что проблема в файле, после перезагрузки я попробовал создать но новый документ, программа тормозила даже в момент создания нового документа, банально перемещения по окошкам каждое действие выполняется по 10 секунд и более

  8. Selection Overprint Preview

    I mean if you have more than 500 pages in Indesign and all have lots of photograph then very difficult to see original preview and It will be take time thats why please develop script for selection and page wise ("whatever want to select and overprint preview") no need to overprint preview whole pages.

  10. ShortcutKey property to styles

    It would be handy to have a shortcutKey property in ParagrapStyle and CharacterStyle objects. I know these properties can be manipulated via idml's Styles file, but it is arduous.

  12. Is there any option to view the HTML tags as rich text on Indesign Pallet?

    We have a plugin & that will shows the notification from another website in Indesign pallet. But when we add the text as HTML tag, it's not changing the tag into formatted text (just Bold/Italic). Is there any way to display the notification as rich text including color?

  13. Script Label Manager

    We use scripts and script labels on a daily basis! It would be absolutely FANTASTIC to have a window (similar to LINKS) that when opened, displays ALL script labels in the board/file, along with a link to where it is in the page (selects the item that's labelled).

    It is extremely tedious to use script labels when there is no way to properly organize and manage them.

    Please please make this Script Label Manager a feature!

  14. Make layercompositions targetable with scripting

    I want to change my applied alpha-mask (psd/tif).

    What I have to do is browse to the image, reimport it (with import options true), just to select another alpha mask.

    While scripting this, I found out, that the DOM is missing the layercomps. If a layercomp was set in InDesign away from default, re-importing a image by script will losse the selected layercomposition.
