  2. Across platform seamless real-time collaboration

    I think this issues is raised with the co-auther note, but it's slightly ambigious what's meant. Therefor I'll just restate that an option to collaborate and work seamless across workstations in the same InDesign document would be very helpful. Something similar to the Office-package in this regard would be amazing, where you can see what and where the other collaborators are editing and in what sections. It's a hassle to have multiple copies and remember to copy every edit into a masterfile in the end.

  5. Persistent place in Creative Cloud folders

    I would love it if my location within a cloud folder was persistent. In other words, if I wasn't always put back to the root directory of my Creative Cloud files. As it is, I have to navigate back into my folders each time I want to save or place or do almost anything. This wastes a lot of time.

  13. 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.

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

  17. 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.

  20. 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?
