  2. Download licensed graphics from CC library to my hard disk

    It's not possible to download/store/save licensed graphics to my hard disk! I have to open my web browser and sign into stock.adobe to do this. Please make it easy!

  3. Feature Request (or bug report) in InDesign directly

    When working, I get many ideas who to improve InDesign or what's missing or getting wrong in InDesign. And then I'd like to have a fast feature request form directly out of InDesign. But instead of this I getting forwarded to this forum and that's really to much time to search and the do a new topic.

    I'd like to have a real Adobe support-team! To interchange in an easy way (please no more these horrible mails: "I need more infos to the feature request" After drafting my wishes in the way the support will have, half an hour is…

  4. Bug: XML w/Images Export (filename)

    Just discovered during XML w/images export that ID is converting images w/spaces in filenames to underscores (causing mismatches, XML itself is correct) — is this a bug? Using ID 13.0.1

    Btw - I know this is a feature request post, but I can't find an easy way to submit bugs!

  6. Could copy operations in InDesign use APFS Cloning to save space?

    Whenever there's an option that copies files in InDesign, would it be possible to it to use the APFS method for copying where the files are cloned? Like when using "Copy Link(s) To..." or possibly when packaging documents as well. This would help with hard drive space and clutter when working with files on an APFS formatted hard drive.

  7. Fix the printing bug for text-heavy documents

    In the 2018 InDesign, the text heavy pages won't print. Even, sometimes, if I save as a simple PDF, strip color, change fonts, etc. I've then tried to save it as an .idml file but that won't work now, either. By the way, I could print it fine last week—until I upgraded to 2018's version. I want to revert to 2017 but it has vanished. This is a bug in the new InDesign that needs fixing right now.

  8. Waaay back in the mists of time, when using QuarkXPress, I could copy a style to another paragraph with a key command. This saved a step ove

    Keyboard shortcut for adopting paragraph style

    I see on this forum that at one time InDesign offered this shortcut:
    1. Using the text tool, click in a paragraph.
    2. Hold Option & Shift, then click a Style Sheet formatted paragraph
    3. The paragraph that had the text tool in it is now formatted to the [Option/Shift] clicked paragraph's Style Sheet.

    I just tried it in ID CC 2017 with no luck. Now the Notes palette opens.

    Please bring it back. It was one of QkXP's best features, a major time saver. Way faster than opening the Styles palette and clicking…

  9. Make tutorials easier for newbies to understand

    Include pictures of where these tools or paths are located. Maybe a convertable word search that offers suggestions of the proper terminology to give the user more ideas on how to search for what s/he is looking for. Insert non-tech terms/definitions using common words and not only geek-speak.

  10. Hex colors please!

    Really would like to be able to use HEX numbers for colors. I know InDesign is primarily for print, but some of us want to move our digital teams completely over to CC, and being able to use InDesign for digital work would be great...

  11. Catalogue Indesign

    Hi,

    I am dealing with a job where I have to create a catalogue in InDesign, and then convert to a website where the user can browse the catalogue images - and select their favourite images (like a wishlist.)

    What is the easiest way to do this? Surely there is a platform which serves as a master image library which will automatically sync with my Indesign file and Dreamweaver?

    Suggestions welcome :)

  12. Change billing from month to month to one time purchase, buy updates.

    I was able to purchase the whole suite in 2004. Now I only need InDesign, and your monthly popup is a pain. Just let me buy the program and sell me updates as they come out. Your popup is inaccurate, claiming I have not purchased the program and would I like to continue with a trial version. I don't want to be bugged by this every month. Just sell me the program.

  13. Tables with footers across pages don't adjust when deleting rows

    Tables with footers across pages don't adjust when row is deleted. The row below the one deleted should move up and replace the space, but the whole table shortens with the footer and the next row stays on the next page. Just spent 2 hours setting this up and now have to go back and manually lay everything out.. Tables also disappear on subsequent pages. Bugs in both 2017 and 2018.

  17. Maintain Stable Versions

    Maintain a specific version until a client understands and accepts the update. Surprise changes wastes time and adds frustration. All of a sudden things like Shading pops up in my text and I do not know where it came from and there is nothing in the help system that points me to the very simple method to either change or turn it off. As an example Ctrl + Shift + U adds or removes underlines. In my case the text is highlighted with a random color.

    I've been with Adobe and other software providers who never organize and present the…

  18. Not able to select file option, jumps to "window" or "help"!

    When I open a file in InDesign, if I select the "File" drop down menu, it immediately disappears and the "Windows" dropdown menu gets pulled down.

    As a result, the FILE dropdown menu is completely USELESS.. Please fix this BUG immediately.

  19. OpenType-"O" on textframes: More a viewing-option than in preference

    As an element on my image/text-frames I would expect this OpenType feature to turn on/off in the "Viewing-options » Extras" like corner-effects or link status, tho its an advanced input.

  20. Allow user-generated swatches to support no color, i.e. solid transparency

    Currently we can change the color of a swatch by dragging another swatch onto it. This does not work with the default [None] swatch. It would be so helpful if you included this functionality. To reiterate, I am requesting the ability to change the color of a user-created swatch to [None] by dragging the default [None] swatch onto it.
