  1. Create strokes/guides for Production purposes.

    When creating a layout that requires fold lines, these strokes could be placed across the layout BUT only show up in the slug/bleed area. This would eliminate 2 smaller strokes on either side of the doc or one continuous stroke with a white box over the center portion.

  2. Smart Guides for Grid Spacing

    In this feature Smart Guides would recognize grid spacing for object groups. So say you have three boxes equally spaced, you select all three, and alt drag to create duplicates below. Smart Guides would recognize the spacing you have in the first three boxes, and would apply that same perpendicular spacing to the three new boxes so you have a perfect grid spacing between all 6 boxes.

  3. Icon looks too much like Premiere

    Sometimes I accidentally click the wrong icon because the color of the two programs (that I both use) are close together...

    Either changing the color or the logo (invert?) or both could help.

    By the way, for the color blind the icons aren't very user friendly either.

  4. Spellchecking and hyphenation anno 2019

    The current spell checker is helpful, but also limited. The error detection rate is too low. Hyphenation error also occurs too often. (Both esp. in german language.) Artificial intelligence that maps the complete official dictionaries and spelling rules of each language should be added to the agenda and implemented. User dictionaries should only record WORDSAMENTS that contain words that are not in the official dictionary. Word forms and compound words should be derived from the rules.

  7. Application In Use indicator

    I bounce between InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop continuously and often realize after trying something that I'm in Illustrator, not InDesign. If there were a subtle unobtrusive way to indicate this, so it 'feels' like Illustrator that would be nice. I don't mean overboard, like Microsoft's Word blue, Excel's green. Something I can change until I find something I like. An indicator in the toolbar? Does this exist already and I don't know?

  9. Ability to change default settings for new index entries

    I use the I use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Alt-Shift-[ to add new index entries. But it defaults to "current page" and I don't want that because my document will be converted to ePub, and e-books don't have fixed pages. I want the default to be "next # of paragraphs: 1."

    The ability to change the default settings for new index entries would solve my problem.

  14. horizontal alignment of text inside of text frame

    Previously InDesign had HORIZONTAL alignment of text inside the text frame. You could align text at the top, bottom and centre of the text frame. It was one of the best features of InDesign, and it seems to be stripped off. :(
    Unless it's still there somewhere, thoroughly hidden away. But why?!

  15. "Teach" Content Aware Fit

    Is there a way to "teach" InDesign how the content aware fit function should work. As you can see in my attached image, it's actually cropping a big part of the image out.

    Thanks

  19. Find font should allow the use of character styles

    When I import a Word file and preserve local formatting some text comes through as an unrecognized font because the local style applied to the text does not match the style available in the family.

    For example there is some text that is Calibi Italic. My body copy uses Frutiger LT Std and the italic version is Frutiger LT Std 56 Italic. InDesign has styles the text as Frutiger LT Std Italic, so it is pink and uses the wrong font.

    Find/Change does not allow me to search for a style that does not exist. I cannot search for Frutiger…

  20. Menu size control

    I need to create MOOC video captures with Id, Ps and Ai. There is a fabulous option : change UI text size in AI 2019 that should be placed in all CC tools. Especially with a need for more visible menus in video captures. After all, education trains future users. :)
