  1. Markierter Text

    Seit dem letzten Update reagiert die Tastatur seltsam.
    Markiert man in einem gewöhnlichen Texrahmen ein einzelnes Zeichen und schreibt ein neues ist alles wie gewohnt.
    Sobald man aber zwei oder mehr Zeichen markiert schreibt InDesign erst beim zweiten Zeichenanschlag. Das erste eingetippte Zeichen wird also immer unterschlagen, sehr nervig!

  2. pasting to layer

    When pasting, it would be nice to be able to not have to stop to select layer when there is only one layer open and simultaneously have to stop to address error message saying prev layer used is locked or hidden etc. I frequently just want stuff pasted into doc and don't care at the time which layer it falls on and do not always wish to organize as I paste etc.

    the same principal applies to dragging from cc library too.

  3. Have a modal window or panel where all alt text can be seen and edited at once

    Can we have a way to open some sort of modal window that then allows us to see all alt text for images/graphics etc so that we can quickly edit all alt tags within a document in one place? It's time consuming having to select each image throughout the document and edit individually.

    It would also be useful to have a preflight check for alt tags within InDesign.

  4. Calendar

    I'm trying to design a calendar and it would be great if InDesign had a feature that automatically created the grid and correlated the days, months, etc... rather than doing each day/week/month by hand individually. Especially being that every year it changes.

  5. Show Hidden Characters

    When you have "Show Hidden Characters" turned on, we don't really need to see the hidden characters of the type that's on the Master Pages.

    The reason I'm asking that is that with this option turned on, it interferes with my ability to read small type that's on the Master Pages.

    I mean, if I'm looking at a Master Page, sure it could be on, but if I'm looking a the regular pages with that feature turned on, I usually don't need to see those hidden characters of the type that's on the Master Pages.

  9. Support for .oam files in interactive pdf‘s

    Wouldn’t it be great if you could publish an interactive Pdf and have the ability to see some basic animation to help tell your desired story? I’m not talking about an ePub here, or an outdated flash file. I’m suggesting that a widely accepted format across multiple platforms, the Pdf, should have the capability to play an lightweight animation / .oam / .gif rather than only be able to have a huge .mp4, with massive compression!

    Surely by now we could have some nice .svg animation. Is html5 able to be implemented into in design? There must be a relatively…

  10. 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…

  11. Change rectange tool default stroke to fill

    When you create a new rectangle, it is annoying that it always adds the stroke to it by default, forcing you to resize the rectangle after you have removed the stroke. Resizing is needed after removing stroke, because you first draw the rectangle to its correct size and then when you remove the stroke, it leaves a tiny gap as the stroke was aligned outside the rectangle.

    Personally I need stoke rarely, but fill almost every time. I am pretty sure others find stroke to be the not-so-often used one, too.

    So, why not change the default stroke to be…

  12. Add a blank to the font listing in the style menus

    When you modify an existing style, there's no way to un-set the existing font except for reverting the whole style to blank. I'd like to be able to modify a style so that it no longer applies the font, without resetting the whole existing style.

  13. Tools handling

    Instead of corner nodes which are used to resize the box, provide the easy option to user where ever they want hold the box edges to resize, it could be better to work with ID..

  14. Allow setting of dashed stroke options in Object Styles

    It seems unrational that all other stroke options can be set in the styles but not this one.

  15. interrupt the checking and reading of PSD, TIFF or other large embedded files

    It took a good few minutes for my new computer to complete that process, and it would be worse for a older machine. Maybe we can have a option to cancel that process? InDesign froze in my old computer while waiting for these files to complete loading.

  17. New Create New document dialog box variables

    I'd like to see the variable labels in the new Create New Document dialog box In InDesign made active so that when you click on them ID selects the current value for you to change; i.e., I'd like to see them work as most all the other entry fields work. This is a real time saver and I'm always telling my students to use this feature, not click inside a field and swipe over/highlight existing value....

  20. Push Out Compensation for Perfect Binding on PDF Export

    Being able to take a facing page document and adding an amount of cross over bleed from the spine and scaling that amount from the spine to the outer trim would be invaluable to my workflow for large perfect binding books. As it is now stands, I have to separate each spread to single pages and create bleeds towards the spine and move/scale each page to allow for artwork alignment in the final printing and binding.
