  1. 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…

  2. Search window improvement suggestion

    Hi there, would it be possible to have an option in the search window for colors, fonts(replacements), and styles, etc... to search on a specific number of pages instead of the whole document, article, or selected...? i could use this on a daily basis...

    Many thanks from Belgium!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Help-Acrobat is terrible on my Mac

    I upgraded to High Sierra and now realize the Adobe Acrobat has made my Mac
    more like a PC. I cant easily send or attach pdfs.I rarely complain but I want my Mac back and am not going to rest until I get it back.This is a huge disappointment and so unlike Apple.

  11. 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…

  13. Bleeds for Size and Position Options feature

    Add the option to enter a negative number in the new Size and Position options feature so a photo can be placed with bleeds. (i.e. x=-.125")

  14. Remove the menu bar from Publish Online when in full screen mode and make sure any remote clicker device can be used to present.

    Several users in our practice would like to present animated InDesign presentations using Publish Online.
    However nobody likes the menu bar appearing across the bottom of the screen, it's very distracting for anyone presenting onscreen.
    Also, most people presenting onscreen would use a remote clicker to move through the slides, as you would in a PowerPoint presentation. However the remote clicker does not work with Publish Online. I would say that I could move our entire practice, with over 1,000 users over to Publish Online from PowerPoint if these two major factors were addressed. It's a shame because they are…

  15. Pattern support

    I am surprised pattern support has not arrived for InDesign yet. I would like to be able to pick a repeating pattern or drop a png of a pattern in and select to repeat it vertically and/or horizontally within a frame.

  16. Print Preview Dialogue Box

    The small print preview in the print dialogue box was recently changed to a light grey, making it harder at first glance to discern page from background. Can you please allow changing it back to dark grey be a preferences option

  18. Add a conditional text checkbox in eyedropper settings

  19. add Latin dictionary

    Include a Latin dictionary in InDesign's default dictionary. It would be nice not to have to tell InDesign to ignore every instance of various scientific terms, or Latin mottos, etc.

  20. Drag text from CC libraries to existing line

    When you drag text from the CC libraries into a text frame that has some text in it, the text you dragged won't be added to the line but it will create a new text frame.

    I'd like it for the text to be added to a line in a text frame.

    Need more info  ·  Anonymous responded

    Thanks for making this suggestion. Currently you can right click on the Text element in the Libraries Panel with your insertion pointer at the location where you would want the text to go.
    Once you do this you get an option of Placing inline. This way you can insert the text at the exact same location.

    Let me know how this goes for you.
