  5. Change "w" as a quick key between normal and preview mode!!!

    This letter changes between normal and preview mode hiding bleed and pasteboard. It also if you mistakenly are in a text box removes entire editorial sections causing thousand in reprint costs. Everyone I know has had this disaster happen to them and all complain about this. Please change the default to a combination of keys to prevent these problems. We will have to get used to it but everyone will thank you.

  6. subscription

    I canceled my subscription to Indesign because I just used it 3 ou 4 times a year and 300 Euros by year it is quite expensive. I try to have acces to my files and I can not open it. I suggest that, in case as like me you spent more than 1000 euros to adobe, you can still have acces at Indesign file and use the version of Indesign you had when you stop your subscription. I really have the feeling to be stollen by adobe.

  7. new visual identifier for missing glyphs rather than using the same pink color that indicates 'missing font'

    Please create a new visual identifier for missing glyphs rather than using the same pink color that indicates 'missing font'. I have just answered for the 3rd time a client's question why "The text is all in pink boxes but the Find Font dialog says there's no missing font, how can this be?!" Typically this happens when Western-language documents are translated to an Asian or Cyrillic language by pasting in the supplied translation. If the designer is doing the pasting themselves, and if they're experienced enough, they can usually figure it out. But if the translation company does it and…

  8. Rättelser

    När man ska göra rättelser med textverktyget är inte funktionen optimal.
    Först brukar man ju markera det som ska ändras och sedan skriva in ändringen. Det jag har problem med är att man måste trycka två gånger på första bokstaven som ska ändras vilket är mycket frustrerande och lätt innebär att det blir fel i texten.
    Varför fungerar inte verktyget så att man markerar och så skriver man in ändringen som man gör i andra program.

  9. Tabs whose location is set from the right instead of from the left (not just the right-aligned tab!)

    Recently setting a series of tables of financial data, I noticed that, if the column width varied, I had to set individual decimal-aligned tabs for each column to ensure that the numbers ended up a similar distance from the right edge of the column. (In other words, so that the numbers in the narrow columns aligned correctly on the decimal without having the numbers in the wide columns appear too far to the left.)

    Would it be possible to create a set of tab stops whose positions are calculated from the right-hand edge rather than the left? This would have…

  10. Table option to disallow breaking across pages

    I would like to be able to specify that a table should not break across columns, frames or pages. It could be an option in the Table Options ('Keep entire table together') that could then be specified in the Table Style. Alternatively, if it's easier, I'd be happy with the existing Cell Option 'Keep with next row' to be available as an option to set in the Cell Style, and I could then apply the appropriate cell style as the basic cell style in the Table Style. This would be much easier than manually selecting each individual table and applying…

  11. No language for multiple table cells

    I create a huge amount of tables for the medical field. The tables have a lot of medical terms and medicines that I do not want to spell check. I could set up a paragraph style for “no language” but some cells do need to be spell checked.

    When you select more than one cell down or across there doesn’t seem to be any way to select “no language” at the top of the screen... it automatically goes into paragraph mode and there doesn’t seem to be any way around this.

    I would like to select multiple contiguous cells and…

  12. Picture frame and actual picture selecting

    Sometimes, I just wanna click on the whole frame+picture and move it up/left/down but it selects the picture INSIDE and therefore moves out of the blue frame. Sometimes I need to move the picture inside of the frame and it selects the blue frame instead. And it keeps happening on random like no care for double click, one click or 1000000000milions click. Just add some idk, alt, shift, control, ctrl+alt+shift combination or whatever feature for it to be selecting either the frame or the picture. SEPARATELY! I am seriously tired of this because it does trigger at random and its…

  13. Free use of units in Move dialog box

    In Illustrator, when moving object, you can choose either pt or mm (or others) regardless of your unit settings in Preferences. This is very helpful when working with graphics and text at the same time ... for example I normally work in mm when moving graphics around, but sometimes it is useful to move text for example 2 lines up or down. In Illustrator I can then type '24 pt' in the Move dialog box - but this feature does not exist in InDesign ... I can only move text and objects in mm.
    Would be very helpful to have…

  14. Curvilinear text tool on several lines

    Instead of limitating the use of this tool to one line, you should be able to make a paragraph based on the shape you use the curvilinear tool on.

    For instance, if i want to write on the edge of a wheel divided in different parts, so that the text follows the shape of the circle. Let's say that the name of the wheel's part is a three lines title, when i press enter, indesign would create another circle on wich the text would follow the curve. see atached picture

  15. Allow key bindings, shorcuts and function changes for mice

    Similar yet from different worlds, AutoCAD is easy to navigate a layout by zooming in and out with the mouse wheel to where the curser is pointed, as well as to pan by clicking and holding the middle mouse button. Is there a way to do this already? However, it seems that InDesign only allows binding of Keyboard shortcuts. Mouse-bindings can further reduce stress and fatigue when working on documents for extended periods of (Coming from a Civil Drafter of 7yrs). It can also improve the speed of work completed by allowing the user to more fully tailor the InDesign…

  16. Make the first keystroke count

    When I highlight text, I'd like my first keystroke to actually make a change rather than deleting the highlighted text. For instance, if I highlighted the word "CHANGE" (all caps) and started to type "change" (all lowercase), I am left with "ange." My first keystroke of "c" doesn't seem to come through. Thanks for looking into this!

  17. A workflow for properly exporting a dual colour-profiled document

    Having both RGB and CMYK in swatches is a great advantage if you want to have a single document exported both to screen and print - but it turned out to be a swatch mess... what about a way to acknowledge similar colors as "equivalents" so we could replace entire document swatches from RGB>CMYK (or the other way around) when this export is needed? changing them individually will eventually cause mistakes.
    and what about replacing entire link library from RGB>CMYK in order to export proper colours? I converted them and assigned all of their profiles in PS but now i…
