  1. 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…

  2. Using local alphabets in Numering Style Format (Paragraph Styles)

    We have only two character formats "A, B, C, D ..." and "a, b, c, d ..." except digital. But many of us work with texts in languages with other alphabets, which are also used as indexes of lists. It would be nice to have formats of local alphabets depending on the language chosen for the paragraph. For example, if the Russian language is selected for the paragraph, then in the list of character formats, except the Latin alphabet, there will be a Russian "А, Б, В, Г..."
    This property should not depend on whether the localized or English version…

  4. XML Workflow – InDesign need to improve much

    We're facing huge difficulties in InDesign while handling the XML structure in InDesign, but it's good in FrameMaker. After importing the XML files in InDesign, no control is available in InDesign to validate the XML coding structure, also allowing the users to easily tamper the XML coding. Due to this limitation, XML extracting from InDesign are not actually correct and users need to fine-tune the same and spending huge time to correct. So current XML features to be improved much.

  5. CJK typesetting in InDesign CC

    We're often receiving the inputs with Chinesh, Japanese and Korean languages, so we're reinstalling the CC with new language to handle these inputs. So it'll be good to have direct feature in InDesign to handle CJK inputs without re-installation.

  6. HTML5 Typesetting

    Our clients are sending the HTML5 inputs to load into InDesign. As we don't have direct feature to import HTML documents in InDesign, we're changing the extension into XML, also adding the META data before attempt to import the files. So it'll be good to have the direct feature within InDesign to accept the HTML files to import in InDesign without any issues, also accepting the HTML interactive features to reflect in the PDFs and in PublishOnline, will be very helpful to meet the client requirements.

  9. Turn on/off show spell check in PREVIEW or other screen modes. Not just NORMAL

    When switching between NORMAL screen Mode to PREVIEW mode I still want any spelling errors to show. This would be great in any screen mode with some kind of a toggle button. In fact, the ability to show various hidden paragraph and character formatting would be brilliant.

  10. Provide Ability to Print Selection

    Where I work, we create printed publications and also design advertisements for these publications. All of our advertisements are designed in a document using a standard InDesign template with a grid. This template is the same size as our publications and is larger than the standard letter size page dimensions that we like to print our proofs. The problem is that in order to print proofs on letter size paper, the ad must always be shrunk because of the larger document template dimensions. So, the ad always appears much small than it really is when printed. We could just simply…

  11. Provide better keyboard support in Story view.

    Provide better keyboard support in Story view. Currently PageUp and PageDn and other scrolling keys don't work, and I am forced to use the mouse for long-distance scrolling.

  12. Universal UI & Export Feature

    Can it please be possible to export your workspace to then import it onto another computer so we don't have to re-arrange everything every time we move or have to reinstall?

    It would be even better if when we log into our Adobe ID on any device, that our own workspace arrangement loads.

  16. A check box to Remove Local Formatting in an auto TOC.

    You include a checkbox to Remove Forced Line Breaks in the text styles used for the auto TOC so why not one to Remove Local Formatting so the text style can display exactly the way you set it in the TOC styles dialogue. Now one must select all the text and set Character Style to None every time the TOC is updated which is inefficient. Thanks.

  18. In-paragraph autonumerated lists

    Quite often we have to create numbered lists, each element of which is a separate paragraph with a number or letter in front of it. But sometimes we need to build a long list that will be contained in one paragraph (enumeration), (for example, a) ...; b) ...; ... n) ... or 1) ...; 2) ...; ... 999). ). When such a list is being edited (its parts are added or deleted), such indexes also need to be edited manually, which takes a lot of time.

    My idea is to add a new marker type (such as a page number…
