    Hi Daniel,

    Thanks for sharing this feature suggestion.

    I didn’t understand this request, will it be possible for you to share some more details on this. What does “double the amount of line make” mean here. If you have any example where you can show this that would really help.

    Thanks

  4. Hi. I have my panels on the right and would like them to expand to the left and collapse to the right.

    I keep my panels on the right and would like them to expand to the left and collapse to the right. This option is definitely available in Adobe Illustrator. Seems like a logical feature and probably easy to implement.

    Hi Dan,

    Thanks for making this suggestion. I tried this out on my machine. What you have in the expectation is exactly how its working, or am I missing something here. Do you have multiple monitors where you are using this, a screenshot of the issue would really help.

    Thanks
    Javed

  5. Search window

    Back in the day you could click on "Help" and search for everything and this feature would help you right away. I can't find it now and hope you will bring it back. It's the fastest way to help yourself. Please bring it back. The feature is also to be found in Photoshop.

  6. Excluding settings in (paragraph) styles

    When editing a stylesheet i.e. for a paragraph I want to exclude the character colors. When checking -without color- there is also a override+ marking, which is not needed.
    Can we have a checkbox to exclude some style settings or another solution?

  7. File handling/sizing when relinking preference shouldn't be a doc preference

    This should be a setting you can choose when relinking each image. One image might need one option and another image might need the other - not just a blanket pref setting per document.

    3. This will take you to https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ which is a legitimate site – if you ever get taken to a site that is clearly not Adobe be very cautious, it is likely you are being taken to a malicious site.

  11. Add comments from InDesign to reviewer using Share for Review

    It seems like owners of documents can only reply to existing comments made in the Share for Review document but can't create comments in InDesign that appear in the Share for Review document. Often, we have a question about text or images that the reviewer needs to answer, but we have to first Share for Review and then create the comment there. It would be great if we could convert InDesign Notes to comments for the reviewer that they can see in the Share for Review side panel.

  12. More motion paths and editable options

    I am increasingly finding myself trying to find animation workarounds to achieve what should be simple animation results.

    Making the motion path more editable with increased functions and options would help.

    As an example I seem to always have a need for a graphic to need a pivoting point motion. So if you had an object that need to rotate around a fixed point, we can use the rotate animation option, but it can't go in reverse or go back and forth.

    Imagine a hand waving, it would rotate one way but not loop back in the other direction. And…

  13. Force / open in full screen view when user views the online document

    As can be achieved with standard PDFs, I think it would be useful to have a 'force full screen' option with a pop up warning that says page is requesting full screen - allow or not.

    Many documents with heavy content almost 'need' to be fullscreen for the best viewing experience.

    This option would remind the user that full-screen is best, but with the pop-up box that allows them to continue in the current window size.

  14. Increase the number of files available under the "Open recent" menu

    Please increase the current maximum of 30 in Preferences > File Handling > Number of Recent Items to Display. Some of us open dozens of files every day so 60 or 100 would be more convenient.

  15. arrange/hide tools

    The ability to arrange and hide tools like in Photoshop and Illustrator would be a massive productivity improvement for creators.

  17. Ability to change Default to None when deleting a Swatch

    When deleting a swatch, it would be helpful if there was a way to change the default 'Replace with' Swatch of Black to be None/another color so one could option-click the trash icon instead of having to select None from the drop-down each time (or make None a merge-able 'swatch').

    We get a lot of files where there are multiple swatches that aren't in use but don't get removed with 'delete all unused.' I don't think I've ever encountered a situation where I wanted to replace with Black anyway.

    If there's a way to do that already, please let me…

  19. Chemin bibliothèque locale Indesign

    Hello,
    Would it be possible to have the address locally in the "library" panel, as in the link panel? Indeed, CC libraries are handy, but 1 plugin in particular does not support them (EasyCatalog), and it is not practical to find local libraries when you have several of them.
    Thanks in advance.

  20. Eyedropper Tool and locked layers on top, theme tool

    Hey, here is an idea; I have a layer with a photo and i have a layer with text on top. I lock the textlayer and select the eyedropper tool. I click on the photo and the colour is picked. Just like in illustrator...Wishfull thinking?

    Here is another golden idea:
    I have a photo of an interior, mostly brown- somewhat green and overal grey, but there is an amazing pop of yellow because there is one small flower on a painting.
    I select the Colour Theme Tool, I zoom in on the flower, and click on it.
    My brain is…
