  1. AI pop-up

    Provide a clear and instant solution to DISABLE these disruptive pop-ups. Workflow is being impeded by these unwanted interruptions and costing money. We are not paying the high subscription cost for Creative Cloud to have our daily work hijacked by constant AI pop-ups. Adobe has turned this into the "Office Assistant" Paper Clip - is that what they were going for???

  2. InDesign to Adobe Express

    Convert your Indesign file to Adobe Express.

    I often make web banners in Indesign, as I need to provide multiple sizes and shapes for many many trade customers. A master is made in Photoshop ; this then gets broken down into a series of links and recreated in InDesign as processing this in InDesign would be much quicker than Photoshop. This InDesign file will then have all of my banner sizes within it and I copy it from page to page adjusting the elements as I go....

    It would be handy if this 'page to page adjusting' could be transposed…

  4. Font menu

    In earlier versions of InDesign the font menu was listed in alpha order (as it is now), but when searching for a font style it would pick up where you left off rather than going back to the beginning. For example, let's say I need to choose a font for a project. I scroll down and select Myriad for example. I try it but don't like it. I go back to the menu but now I'm back at the top (A) rather than at Myriad. I've already discarded A through M at this point, so it's a waste of time…

  5. Modern Data Merge Source File

    I have lot's of use cases in which a CSV file isn't enough as a source file (for example, if having columns with multiple line entries)

    it would be a tremendous help, if there would be an option for having JSON as a source file or something similar which doesn't break as easily if there is a single line break

  7. Rotate guides

    It would be wonderful to rotate guides to an angle, like you can do in Illustrator.

  9. InDesign Cloud SHARING Could be a Game Changer if it is Fully Collaborative!

    Can multiple users work on the same document? I frequently work on large, multi-page documents with other designers. It would be amazing if we could all be in the same file at once (like a Google doc) and manage all of the changes.

    This would be the most useful feature ever added to InDesign for me!

    How does sharing work in the Beta? THANKS!

  10. Improve Reviewing Previous Versions Experience

    Right now, reviewing previous versions of an INDDC file is difficult. I can only see the first page of different versions. My first page is a cover image. It hasn't changed. I want to be able to scroll through the entire document to compare changes. I'd also like to save a previous version as a different file to keep both if needed.

  11. Search feature need updating

    I want to find a certain word and add an effect to it. For example, let's say I want to find all date "th" in my document and then have it subscripted using the find and research function. The case sensitivity is not enough, and I don't want to have to use character styles to go through the document piece by piece to correct how the "th" should appear after a date.
