  1. Fully support Metric units of measure for ALL Adobe applications!

    ALL Adobe products should allow type sizes to be specified using Metric units of measure instead of Imperial units of measure. This would avoid errors from converting between two different units of measure.

    This website (https://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/metric-typo/) also recommends the use of a publishing 'metric point' equivalent to .25 mm because it corresponds to the dot pitch of many computer monitors.

    There is also a unit of measure called the English Metric Unit that is equal to 914400, which would make it easier for your programmers to convert between Imperial and Metric units of measure. Please see http://polymathprogrammer.com/2009/10/22/english-metric-units-and-open-xml/.

  2. Notes for images/picture-frames (InCopy)

    It's possible to select some text to attach a note, but it's not possible to select images to attach notes (for example the editor like to have the image brighter and like to communicate this to the designer)

  3. Adobe Story Scriptwriting formatting

    Basically with the demise of Adobe story, then it would seem logical to me to make it's scripting format an option to use in incopy. Forget all the management integration, just the pure scriptwiriting formatting, maybe even as workspace set up.

  4. Please allow the ID/IC workflow to function with the Creative Cloud Files area

    Right now, if you store your InDesign and InCopy files in CC Files and share (collaborate) that folder with your team, all the files are synced EXCEPT the lock files for InDesign and InCopy. This prevents users working on the same project from knowing if someone else has opened an InDesign file or has checked out a story (ICML) file. SO people try to use Dropbox, Google Drive, or Box, all of which have figured out how to sync the lock files for checked-out stories at least. No one as far as I know has been able to sync the…

  5. InCopy needs to have 125% and 175% scaling support.

    InCopy is my favorite word processor and works perfectly with InDesign. The one issue is not working properly on 2880x1440 displays and its is due to the lack of scaling options.

  6. InCopy Autoflowing Text takes forever (a long time)

    i use InCopy as a notes app since 2015. the file i write on is now almost 5 mb big. and i noticed that over the years it takes longer and longer for incopy to open my document. and it is because of "Autoflowing Text" i do not even know what it is and i can't even google it. But it takes so long. what i have been doing over the years is that i just wait for it to finish. But now i am trying to find a setting in preferences to turn it off whatever it is so…

  7. Fix the inconsistency of the text wrap from Indesign to Incopy - we randomly get where the text wrap is lost in InCopy.

    Fix the problem with InCopy dropping the text wrap. So irritating - this needs to get fixed!!!

  8. Please rename the Assignment panel to the InCopy Workflow panel

    We don't use Assignments and we don't know anyone who does, we all work on the layout; but use the Assignments panel to track the status of our stories, in the "Unassigned InCopy" category. The panel should be renamed to InCopy Workflow, though the ability to create assignments can stay for the minority of people who use that feature.

  9. Allow incopy to access object states

    It would be perfect if incopy could access and change all object states content. I do not understand why this is not possible today.

  10. Make a real collaboration with InDesign/InCopy via CC

    It was hard to see, that InCopy is still using E-Mail to collaborate with editors on another place. I thought it's all in the CC!! For this is a must have: I'm sharing an InDesign-document (or parts of it) save it for my incopy-editor. The editor gets a notification (email or instant) and will open it and makes changes and new content, save it and the designer gets a notification that there is new content from editor xy. He can now accept this and the new content is inside the InDesign-document. Finish.
    But ash the moment it's very hard to…

  11. Option to make all stories in ID file editable by editors using InCopy

    Why should I have to go through and export each story I want them to be able to edit? It would make more sense if I could tell ID that all the stories (or all of them except a few that I opt out) are to be editable by my editors. We don't use assignments. I export all the stories they need to be able to edit and they open the ID file in InCopy. But with dozens or hundreds of captions and other items in addition to main stories, it's quite annoying. I am curious what would make the…

  12. Quick key and/or eyedropper tool option for ALL CAPS and lowercase in inDesign

    Having to use dropdown menu (and noting conspicuously absent quick key notation) is so tedious when you have to do this 100 times
