    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
    Javed

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  8. Apply Paragraph Styles to a Table style by column

    It would be really helpful if it was possible to design a table style that uses a particular paragraph style for each column.

    For example, I currently build a catalog with multiple tables with either 3 or 4 columns. Column 1 is an item number that, column 2 is a product name, column 3 is the price, and column 4 is the price with discount in the case there's a promo. Each of those columns has a paragraph style defined (actually two, one with white text, one with black). I also already have a table style built based on if…

  9. Lightroom to InDesign "Edit with"

    I really wish I could easily go between Lightroom and InDesign. I regularly create proposals etc in InDesign and load in images that print dark. I would love the ability to right click and edit in Lightroom. Lightroom is far better/intuitive for me for basic edits of images than Photoshop. You offer Edit in: Photoshop, After effects etc. In Premiere you offer many options but not Lightroom. Seems like it would (as a side benefit) encourage use of another of your products.

  10. Reinclude the cutter tool

    The cutter tool has not been included as it was in old Pagemaker This tool is very useful. Without this tool, if you import an Autocad drawing, it is not possible to resize the content to the frame. I recommend to include this tool as it was in Pagemaker.

  11. Arrange Saved blank document presets

    It would be great if we could arrange the Saved blank document presets.

    I have created presets for our most common product in different sizes. But the sizes are all mixed up: additional sizes are always added last, instead of in incremental order which would be more logic.

    If I could arrange them manually that would be a great help.

  12. Tab in footnote prefix for aligned decimals

    I have a document with over 100 footnotes. I need to align the decimals of every footnote. To do this, I expected to be able to set up in the footnote style an "align to decimal" tab, and then a "justify left" tab for the footnote content, and then a TAB prefix in the "Document Footnote Options." However, there seems to be no way to place a tab as a Footnote text prefix. Entering ^t does nothing, and it gets cleared as soon as I close the options window. Other text or even special characters like ^r for registered trademark…

  13. Grid guide for graphic frames

    In much the same way that the crop tool in Photoshop has optional grid overlays (rule of thirds, golden spiral etc), Indesign could have the option to toggle these on/off for graphic frames.

    This would be immensely useful for positioning images in graphic frames – for example when placing a headshot and wanting to align the subjects eye using the rule of thirds or golden ratio.

    This would be far better than having to crop/resize images in Photoshop in advance, particularly because you can then adjust the size of the graphic frame in Indesign without having to redo your crop…

  14. HTML export with Bootstrap CSS classes.

    I am sure most savvy web developers are aware of how indispensable Bootstrap can be for quick standard web sites.

    https://getbootstrap.com/docs/5.1/getting-started/introduction/

    I would really like the ID HTML export to gravitate towards using standard Bootstrap classes, this way where we have already taken the time to adapt them into our CSS architectures we could simply plug in the new content without the hassle of dealing with strange naming conventions etc.

    according to https://w3techs.com/technologies/details/js-bootstrap

    Bootstrap is used by 27.0% of all the websites whose JavaScript library we know. This is 22.1% of all websites.

  15. Provide a linking feature to duplicate text from one frame into others

    It would be highly valuable to be able to define a parent text frame and then link that frame to other frames in a layout that duplicates the text in that frame.

    This would be similar to the way that text links in alternate layouts work, but the styles to the linked (child?) frames are allowed to be independent of the parent.

    Trying to use text variables for this kind of duplication runs into the multi-line issue. Copying linked frames from alternate layouts will result in the parent style of the linked text to overrun any changes made to the…

  16. Footnotes: ability to cite multiple references to a footnote, with appropriate tagging for accessibility

    Each new instance of a footnote added in InDesign gets a sequential number – but authors and copywriters expect to be able to insert multiple references to the same numbered footnote. For example, a bank might want to put a single asterisk against multiple references to ‘interest rate’, with one corresponding footnote at the end to explain what 'APR', or 'EAR' means. So I’d like a new feature to be added that would, at the point of inserting a footnote, give the option to cite an existing one that’s already in the document. In an exported accessible PDF, there would be…

  18. Paragraph Rules in Find/Change and a new Panel?

    Please add Paragraph Rules to the Find Change dialog box. I often need to change rule thickness or color to paragraph rules that are not in a paragraph or character style. Manually changing each selection takes quite a bit of time and should be automated.

    A floating/dockable paragraph rules panel would be helpful when having to change a file with multiple paragraph rules applied manually and not in a style. As it is now I have to select each instance and open the dialog box and change the rule settings.

    Also, please show both rule above and below at the…
