  1. Improve the time it takes to import to PDF in InDesign 2020

    It takes up to 10 (ten) times as long to export to PDF in InDesign 2020 compared to InDesign 2019. These are files linked to graphics, not just text files.

  3. Add a feature to the paragraph shading or the underlining where you can set the angle. For italic Fonts.

    Would be a big relief if you could set an angle in the paragraph shading or the underlining. With this it would be possible to underline an italic Font individually and correctly.
    Right now im forced to create a transformed rectangle under the italic Font to underline or highlight it with its angle. I cant do it with underlinings or shadowing for italic Fonts..

  4. Show Page Dimensions permanently in Document Window

    With more than one tool to change general/individual page sizes, keeping an eye on these numbers is crucial.

    Please make page dimensions visible at all time – e.g. in the slug/pasteboard area next to every page or in the Pages thumbnails, at least as some kind of tooltip or popup info. This behavior could be activated with a preferences checkbox. Thanks.

  5. OS Specific Features Lacking

    I can respect that you want to keep the CC base code clean of OS specific features, but I HATE subscriptions and I HATE the fact that you make the apps feel like 2nd class citizens on Mac. Two examples:

    1) Full screen windows.
    2) Full Dark Mode support.

    I won't go into details as I am sure that any developer / engineer working on these products on a Mac knows exactly what I am speaking of. There was a time when I truly loved Adobe products and thought it was a fair company. Today with subscriptions and attitude, I'm…

  9. Make tool windows movable from anywhere within the window

    Since I'm working with two screens I have a custom design to my workspace. However, whenever I use one screen only my workspace gets messed up and the headers of several tool windows appear in-between screens, making it impossible (?) to move them.

    It would be great if I could click anywhere in a palette and move the window around, could even be together with a modifier.

  10. After creating a QR-Code-symbol, I can´t change the color in InDesign.

    I have to copy-paste it to Illustrator, copy-past back to Indesign, to change the color. Wouldn´t it be comfortable, to change the color directly in Indesign?

  11. Highlighting Currently Edited Document In Book

    on to Hello there,

    I edit two copies of a book open at once, each one a different format. If you look at the picture you will see what the two books look like in the books editor-kind of. I am migrating one copy of my book from A4 to ePub for Kindle (why don't you support the .mobi Kindle format or get Amazon to write a plugin for the purpose? I am forced to use Word to write a kindle book). The file are in two different folders. The files have the same name for each book.

    It would…

  12. Properties panel: make “Apply to Text” the default for text frames

    When I select a text frame, I find that most of the time I want to change the colour of the text, not the frame. But InDesign defaults to “Apply to Frame“ every single time, which is particularly cumbersome in the properties panel, where the option is now a menu.

    I believe it would be much more useful to have the default either be "Apply to Text“ whenever you choose a text frame or at least remember your preference.

    (I am aware that you can double click to select the text, then select all, then the properties panel applies the…

  13. Assemble book for printing

    I use French InDesign 2020 in Windows 10 environment, mainly for book editing.
    There is an annoying bug when I assemble the book for printing. InDesign asks for a location to assemble the different files, incorporate the fonts, images, etc. It proposes as folder name "Dossier Book name" (Dossier meaning Folder in French). It is not possible to save in an existing folder (created for instance by a former assembly), the programme asking for a non-existing folder. Unfortunately, it is not possible to delete the pre-existing folder, because Windows considers that this folder is being opened in the programme EVEN…

  15. A LIVE word count for booklet files.

    Please add a live word count feature for booklet files. I have had to spend a long time copying and pasting to Word to get a total word count for my entire document.

    It would be brilliant if there was a live word count at the bottom next to the errors (or simply in the info window) which updates as you type.

    While I'm at it, a live spell check would be helpful too.

    Thank you.

  17. reorder bookmarks

    Let's say we have a document 40 pages long. The usefulness of all 40 pages vary because of end-user knowledge.
    As such,
    Master users will preferably only read 5 out of those 40 pages.
    Experienced will read 15 pages
    Intermediates 30 pages
    First time users 40 pages.

    Now this already is possible with a plug-in, but I fail to understand why Adobe don't see plug-ins as a clear sign that users want / need the functionality.

    Ok, what would be great is being able to script a user end button that calls the sort bookmarks function. The PDF would already…

  20. Kurdish Language Spelling

    Hello!
    Adobe InDesign has many users writing in and experiencing the Central Kurdish language. People who use this language make up a significant portion of Iraq’s population, which is in the Kurdistan region. Unfortunately, the Kurdish language dictionary isn’t available in InDesign.
    I hope you can allow InDesign to add the Kurdish language dictionary as an option for users who are writing in this language.
    Or, if you could create a translation web page to add the Kurdish language phrase and sentence spellings in Adobe InDesign and other Adobe products, that would be most appreciated.
    Thank you.
