  1. Noms de domaines et adresses IP à exclure

    Chaque fois que je souhaite publier un document online, j'ai une error#22.
    Mon équipe technique a testé de nombreuses pistes, mais sans succès.

    Pourriez-vous nous communiquer la liste des noms de domaine et adresses IP à exclure de nos analyses de sécurité pour publication d'un document Indesign ?

    Merci d'avance.
    Cordialement,
    Françoise

  3. Copy Artboard Size across CC apps

    I do this a lot: I have a diecut in Illustrator and need to create the layout in InDesign. I have a little OCD (like most DTP/Artworkers :)) ) so I create the diecut in Illustrator and then fit the artboard size to the whole art. When I start creating the layout in InDesign, I create the document using the same page size as the Illustrator file. And I do this several times a day. :)

    It would be great to have an option/button in Artboard Tool (Illustrator) / Page Tool (InDesign) to copy the size and be able to…

  4. Copying Links to folder fails

    Oftentimes, when I try to copy links to a folder, it fails. No explanation as to why. It's happened dozens of times. Occasionally, it works. Usually not, though.

    I am running InDesign 13.1 on Mac OS 10.13.6

  5. Retained overwrites

    While doing heavy make-up of book texts I often need to get in a line or to space out a line. Doing this without having countless paragraph overrides (with the danger that by clicking "clear override" or applying a script everything would be lost) the only possibility so far is to make numerous paragraph copies, e.g., "body", "body+5", "body+10", "body-5" etc.
    A possible solution could be to have the paragraph style definition with some kind of "ranges", maybe "Tracking: 0 - +30" with a default value "0". And the actual value could be selected in a panel. Hopefully someone has…

  6. Multiple text cursors in a text box.


    1. Multiple text cursors in a text box.

  8. Apply Multiple Master Pages per Page (Akin to Layers)

    Ideally, InDesign would treat master pages like layers. In this manner, a variable number of master pages could be applied to any page, allowing for more efficient and quicker customization of page layout. For example, a user might set up the following master pages:

    A-Body (1 Col.)
    B-Body (2 Col.)
    C-Body (Fig. or Table)
    D-Header (Full)
    E-Header (Partial)
    F-Footer (Full)
    G-Footer (Partial)

    In this example, the many possible combinations, such as AD, AF, ADF, AE, AG, AEG, BD, etc. (based on layout needs) wouldn't need to be created. More importantly, as in styles based on parent styles, changes would effectively…

  9. CC Library Keyboard Shortcuts, or TextExpander feature

    CC Libraries exist to make it fast to add pre-built content to an INDD. Text does not have a quick way of placing inline - you must right click and click place content. Annoying when doing hundreds of times.

    Two solutions:
    1. Right clicking on a library element should have "keyboard shortcut" adjacent "rename". When a keyboard shortcut is added, show that shortcut on the right side of the element in the CC Library panel.
    2. Add 'text expander' feature. Right click on a text library element and have option for 'expand text on...' where a unique phrase can be…

  11. Allow the dynamic note function to be turned off so notes can be copied and pasted into separate documents

    For all those of us who work on illustrated books with end matter, the fact that we cannot turn off the new dynamic note function is a serious problem. It means we can no longer copy notes out of a document and place them at the back of the book in a separate notes section without losing all of the note numbering.

    The ability to add and remove notes without having to renumber by hand is great, but please give us the option to turn that off. For exhibition catalogues and academic art books, for example, all the notes have…

  12. Creating a PDF with its actual file name

    When creating a PDF can the name of the file be exactly as the document working on, not adopting an old file name you've create the file from?

  13. Print the contents of the book window

    I'm working on a very long document -- a book with about 300 component files (2-4 pp each). They're all in the book window... but once you're past two or three dozen files, the organization of the book window becomes difficult to view and comprehend. I'd like to print out the contents of the book window (PDF, CSV, spreadsheet, text, whatever) so that I can review what's there and see how best to organize it. The book window allows me to print out the book in different ways, and I can print portions of the book... but not that overview…

  14. Ctrl + Backspace

    In almost any Windows program (including InDesign) hitting Backspace while pressing Ctrl deletes the word to the left of the cursor., while hitting DEL while pressing Ctrl deletes the word to the right.

    With InCopy on Windows, the word to the right is removed no matter if you use DEL or Backspace. This is very irritating and a bit pointless, since Backspace and DEL are just a few cm apart.

    Also, I find myself wanting to delete the word to the left of the cursor much more frequently than the word to the right. For me this is a deal…

  15. Mark to Mark Kerning & Positioning

    Dear Adobe, you should really introduce mark to mark Kerning and Positioning in CC. These features are really crucial in resolving a lot of issues in Indic type design and it's dismal that none of the Adobe software support it. Apple's basic applications like PAGES supports it but not InDesign which is literally sad.

  16. Spell check with glyphs

    I added words with glyphs to my custom dictionary. In the spell check and spelling context menu these glyphs are not visible. I see f.ex haha-yoga in stead of Hatha-yoga ( the t in this word has a dot underneath). So my request is to make spell check work with glyphs.

  18. BUG: Option-Drag does not work between spreads

    It is possible to copy objects using Alt+Drag command. It works if you work on a single page or single spread.
    Unfortunately it is not possible to Alt+Drag objects from one spread to another spread. This bug was introduced many years ago and it is still present in Adobe InDesign CC.
    Please make the Option-Drag of object consistent and let users copy objects from one spread to another one.
