  2. Properties panel change - using tab for editing page size

    Currently, in the Properties Panel, if you change the Width of a document and press Tab it heads to the page count (Pages) input box. It would be very helpful if it tabbed into the height box directly after typing into the Width box.

    I'm consistently adding a large number of pages to the document instead of editing the Height directly after the Width when using Tab - which is not logical.

  5. Indesign (Beta) only opens a copy and not the exact inddc, thus resulting to multiple inddc files instead of updating the original file.

  6. integrate adobe express templates in software.

    Adobe Express is an amazing online platform with tons of inspiration and templates. Being able to use existing templates as a prompt designer in inDesign (and other Adobe Software) would be a game changer to speed up production time during slumps.

  9. Online Copy Editing for Cloud based InDesign file

    The feature to export for InCopy isn't available in InDesign Beta. Will InCopy be available via cloud based InDesign files in future, or could there a new online copy editor? A more simple and paired back version of InCopy online just to adjust text within Cloud based InDesign file?

  10. one click font size changer in whole file.

    During translation, the text expands too much, and we have to reduce the font size to fit the text. But if it is a booklet we have to keep consistency throughout the file. Therefore if I reduce the font size in the heading will need to check and reduce the font size in the body text as well. It is time-consuming if the document is not set properly with styles.

    Let's say I need to reduce font size by 1pt throughout the document. and I have multiple variations in sizes like the Heading 20pt, subheading 18, body size 12 pt…

  12. Paragraph styles

    BUG Report
    (1) InDesign Beta 18.9
    (2) Cursor in text block or selected text --> Click on Paragraph Sales drop-down field
    (3) See a listing of all of your styles , at least showing 15, 20 etc. with a list that dropdowns the entire screen
    (4) Sometimes it display a small window showing only 5 or so styles at a time, other times, a larger window with slightly more styles and sometimes, a large window showing all of your styles.

    Behavior is inconsistent, showing a large window with a full list sometimes and a smaller window other times.

  14. A simple visual Notificacion of the depending preformatted Styles

    As I highlight a character or Paragraph style, I would like to see a bullet on the left side of each style who is based on the currently highlighted style in the Style box.
    So I would not forget to verify some consecuences of the dependent changes on each of the dependent styles.

  15. Ability to create shortcuts with double or triple letter: For ex CTRL-f f f

    It would be great to memorize shortcuts wo referrs to similar function:

    Here a simple example, just to understand:
    Ctrl -S =save, Ctrl-S-S (double click on S) =Save as, and Ctrl-S-S-S = Save for web
    or:
    Ctrl -S =save, Ctrl-S-A (Rapid click S, thanA) =Save as, and Ctrl-S-W = Save for web

  16. Starting up in "tablet" mode

    I´m beta-testing some Adobe apps both in Mac and PC. (I have also a professional CC-account for my professional user PC) and the present beta version of InDesign doesnt stort up correct in my PC, that is equipped with also "tablet"-mode. (It's Dell i7)

    I have the tablet mode totally disabled but the app seems override this. Buttons on screen are all unfunctional but I can "select" areas drawing with finger on screen.

    The app does not react upon ctrl-Q or other command so the only option is force quitting.
