  2. A customisable list of acronyms and words that the program can be made to use

    I know that there is the ability to use a user dictionary which I use, but it would be nice if there was a exceptions list to put works in that would stop the autocorrect trying to change them or if they are put in - incorrectly they are changed to the right version. For example ISO seems to end up as Iso or ISo even though its been added to the user dictionary and Auto correct and There are some American words that I have to use as they are product related - Customization rather than customisation. Also to…

  3. Share for Review comments link to incorrect spreads on web viewer after reordering pages in InDesign

    I am using the new Share for Review feature to get feedback on a 100+ page document I am working on. Previously I tested reordering pages on a small document, and all comments and pins stayed attached to the page they were originally placed on, even when its page number changed.

    However, after adding some pages to this larger document, I'm running into a problem where the comments are pinned to the correct page inside Indesign, but the wrong one in the web viewer. On the web, it seems to ignore the added pages and goes by the original page…

  5. Export from Pages Panel

    The Pages panel — with pages selected — has a "print spreads/print pages" option in the contextual menu.

    An option to export the selected spreads/pages to PDF would be useful, especially if it could be done seamlessly, without need for the Export Adobe PDF dialog.

    Alternatively, the CMD-E shortcut with pages/spreads selected in the pages panel should bring up the Export Adobe PDF dialog with the selected page range already entered.

    This would be especially useful when exporting contiguous pages!

  6. Preference to always select pages when placing multi-page PDF

    When placing a multi-page PDF there should be a preference to always show import options. When I place a multi-page Word file I don’t only get the first page, I get the whole document. I should at least have the option to do this with PDFs.

    I am aware that I can access Show Import Options when placing a file through a dialogue, but that is an extra step and it is unavailable when using drag-and-drop.

    Please add a preference to “Show Import Options When Placing Multi-page Graphic Files.”

  7. Print Booklet needs to support booklets with more than 4-up, e.g., up to 6-up

    Print Booklet needs to support booklets with more than 4-up, e.g., up to 6-up.
    The team I am part of produces many z-fold documents in excess of 4-up, often 5-up or 6-up. We need the functionality in Print Booklet to support that. The existing maximum 4-up just isn't enough/

  8. Allow object style to be added to cc libraries

    Allow object styles to be added to CC libraries just like paragraph and character styles. with my paragraph styles panel open all I have to do is select a style and the double square with and arrow icon in the bottom left corner to add to my current selected library. I'm asking to be able to do the same thing with object styles.

  9. Full support to Mongolian vertical LTR and reading its font open type feature to combine characters

    Full support to Mongolian vertical LTR and reading its font open type feature to combine characters. Currently using Mongolian Baiti or Noto Sans Mongolian fonts the characters in the words do not connect to the correct initial, medial or final forms. Only isolated forms are displayed. We tried any current settings but the characters do not combine. Is there a function to do this? We have not found any plug-ins so far. Perhaps it could be that the open type tables are not read which may be one reason for this. See the attached IndDesign file

  11. InDesign Preflight should be pressready (default)

    InDesign Preflight should be pressready (default)
    Bleed 3 mm, no low-resolution images,
    no RGB-swatches, no missing links or fonts,
    no missing glyphs.
    That would be great.

  12. Failed to export pdf file - why?

    The export process dies with the error mesage "Failed to export pdf file".

    Please include the cause of the error! How can a simple user figure out what was the cause of the error? Practically the whole production process stops here, because inDesign continuously refuses to export the PDF.
    I'm able to export the PDF 2-3 times, then the error comes. I can get rid of the error only by restarting the computer - obviously not a solution when working on catalogs.

    Dear IT team, please include what is the cause of the PDF export problem.

  13. Make an option for "freezing" document window during searches

    Currently, when executing a series of finds, a document with spreads will jump around within a window, even if view is set to "fit spread in window," as described in this post:

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/searching-a-file-in-indesign-causes-the-spread-to-jump-all-over-the-place/m-p/11118210?page=1#M185629

    The expected behavior is that the page where the text is found should be centered on the page. That does not work with spreads. If panels are open on the side of the window, found text can frequently be hidden from view.

    So I believe there is a bug with the expected behavior. But it would be even better than the expected behavior if there were a…

  15. GPU Support Indesign Windows 10 is urgently needed!

    Why is GPU Support for Windows/Indesign not already running yet?
    Other vendors have still good and fast running...
    Plaes give soon a feedback when we can start with GPU Power in Indesign on Windows Systems...
    Otherwise the way leads to other products, which support GPU (for ex. NVidia Quad) under Windows 10...
    It is no option for us to use old MACs ;-)

  16. Please reinstate this feature: Cmd-H to hide program with no open documents

    In InDesign, you can’t hide the program with Cmd-H when no documents are open any more.
    It’s a feature I use a lot, and has suddenly stopped working. As far as I know it has been there since the beginning.
    Why on earth someone thought it was a good idea to remove this is beyond me.

  17. Glyph preference

    Hello,

    I've encountered a problem where a client is requesting all glyphs for the letter 'g' be changed to an alternate glyph within the same typeface.

    Whilst style and GREP methods might work, a method to be able to quickly change the default primary glyph within a set would be amazing.

    Currently I can see a small triangle in the corner of the primary used glyph within the glyph window, but would love to be able to move that to the alternate version for that font on that machine within InDesign.

    Thank you.

  18. FORM - COMB, order, styles

    Primarily, for me, is the painstaking task of setting "comb of" characters, and even worse setting the right tab order.

    Panel for setting tab order in InDesign, under Object>Interactive is horrible. It is too small, height-wise, and does not function well all the time. Often it happens to "jump". I get nr. 47 after 46, but it jumps before 46.

    I sometimes have over 70 form fields to sort on a single page and it is taking too much time and patience to set it right.

    If you could work on that tab order panel, make it larger, and give…

  19. Add ability to edit all InDesign form fields in a table for faster creation and edits

    I can create beautiful forms using InDesign. For example, I create intake documents and questionnaires for law firms. Some of these forms can become dozens of pages long with hundreds of fields. Consider the vast array of information required for an estate plan. For some of these forms, the number of fields becomes literally too many to manage on a one-at-a-time basis.

    Imagine if there was an option to edit a table of all the form fields in a document once created. This process could potentially become super-streamlined.

    One would still be required to draw in the fields, but once…

  20. Online InDesign document for client text edits — like InCopy but online without the need for technical know-how or files to move around

    I wish there was a way to post InDesign files online that would easily allow proofreaders, editors, clients or anyone without a lot of technical know-how to log in and make text edits. Freeing up designers from spending countless hours making text edits.

    We tried InCopy, but we store files on a shared server and move files up and down through a project management tool. Being able to properly move the InDesign and linked icml files was way too confusing for our writers and proofreaders and out of the question for clients.

    When we work on PPT presentations, we post…
