  1. Download interactive PDF from Publish Online

    I have posted an INTERACTIVE document on Publish Online, but when it is downloaded, all the interactivity is stripped out. What is the point of posting an interactive document if you can't download it as an interactive document! I have had to create a workaround to include a button IN the document that leads to an interactive PDF that I had to post separately on Google Drive to allow people to download the working PDF.

  3. Let baseline shift be expressed as a percentage of the font size

    If I've created a paragraph style, sometimes I add a character style with a different size for specific purposes, usually either a bullet point or a quote mark (to highlight a pullquote, for example).

    In practice, this means a bullet point is usually smaller, and the quote mark is larger than the rest of the paragraph text. I alter this size as a horizontal and vertical scale, NOT a specific size in points, as this lets the characters scale in proportion when I alter the type size of the paragraph style.

    However, I usually also include a baseline shift in…

  4. Scrubby zoom with option to enable/disable

    Scrubby zoom option in the Preferences with enable/disable toggle, just like in Photoshop and Illustrator.
    And the default option should be unticked (disabled).

  5. Add additional interactive options to the buttons and forms panel

    The buttons and forms panel (used for making interactive form elements for PDF) is missing several options that are available in Acrobat such as:
    * insert image button
    * insert date button
    * insert barcode button

    There was a request to do this but it was marked FIXED and (in my humble opinion) is far from fixed - https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601021-adobe-indesign-feature-requests/suggestions/20482882-more-options-when-creating-forms-via-indesign

  6. orphans

    In the paragraph options, we should have an option for how long the last word in a paragraph must be in order to turn down to its own line. Wording could be "minimum of __ characters on last line" And allow us to turn this feature on or off in addition to specifying the number of characters on the last line.

  7. Export selected pages

    I very frequently need to export only certain pages to PDF. I know I can type a range or multiple ranges. But it would realy speed up my professional work if I could just select the pages and hit 'Export selected pages...' in the contextual mouse menu.

    This feature was present until CS6 by a plugin named HandyTools by DTP Utils.

  9. Show Masterpages overrides.

    There's no way you can tell that someone did alter or remove MasterPage-items on a document page. You should add a little + sign next to the page icon in the Pages panel. Just like altered Paragraph Styles.

  12. Add row/column dimensions to table styles

    When a document includes multiple similar tables, I would like to be able to quickly set them up to have the same column widths for better consistency. Adding this kind of information to styles seems the most logical place for it.

  13. Export PDF Booklet

    Instead of having to do "File>Print Booklet" and hassling with making a post script file and making a PDF from that (which doesn't ever seem to work the right way for me) there should be an option to export a booklet PDF. So many of the printers I work with request a booklet PDF and it would make everything so much easier if there was this option.

  14. Access CC Library Assets via Script

    The ability to access assets from a classic ID library and place them on the artboard via script works great. It would be even better if these functionalities are also possible with CC libraries. This move would push more developers to the cloud environment of Adobe in my opinion.

    Currently there are some cloud-related methods like 'placeCloudAsset' and 'setCloudLibraryCollection' listed inside the ID-DOM but these seem to be for internal use only.

  15. Sub-folder grouping master pages

    Implement a more robust system for grouping and organizing master pages. Current the long list view is cumbersome, and has limited view options (aside from the thumbnail size). A sub-folder system would allow for more truncated views of page groups that fit better in defined sets.

  16. Add Australian dictionary to Indesign

    Please add Australian Dictionary to Indesign. It was once doable but complicated to add the Hunspell dictionary to Indesign with earlier versions but now is impossible as the files that need changes are locked. I'm sure you have thousands of Australian users paying about $900 per year. This is a fix that I would have thought would only take five minutes to do

  18. Bring back sync settings

    Indesign needs to bring back the Sync Settings feature. Trying to recreate my workspaces and other settings when I get a new computer is such a hassle. Why would Adobe provide a really useful feature like sync settings and then take it away? With all of the resources of Creative Cloud, sync settings should be at the top of the list for Adobe.

  19. Object Styles: Size and Position relative to spine

    When setting an object's position with this feature, one must choose left or right for X position. With Anchored Objects, we can choose for that to be "relative to spine" instead. So instead of "left" or "right", we can choose "inside" or "outside".
    This would allow for symmetry on a spread. Example: an object could then extend from the spine, beyond the page edge, through the bleed, whether on a left or right page.
