  1. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  10. Shared Documents - Make Available Offline Always

    For documents I create and that appear under the "Your Files" section, I see that I can choose the "Make Available Offline Always" option. However, for documents that have been shared with me and appear under "Shared With You," I don't see this option.

    Will this option be available for shared documents in the near-future?

    It's a critical need for my team since our workflow sometimes includes starting a project that has to be handed off to someone else for completion. Having the ability to work offline as the starting lead OR as the finishing lead ensures we can safely…

  13. 'Use Spacing' *STILL* not working for multiple pages using Page Tool

    1. Indesign Beta v 18.9
    2. Turn off Facing pages and deselect 'Allow pages to shuffle'

    • create multiple pages and then 'attach' one to another, by clicking and dragging a page alongside another in the pages panel, until you see the grey 'hook' then release it, so they stick together.

    • Now select multiple pages using the Page tool and the 'Use Spacing' option appears at the top. Type in a number, say, 50mm

    1. Expected result: All pages move 50mm away from each other, and you should be able to attach as many pages together as required for the task

    2. Actual…

  14. Quick Action 'edit with' not working with creative cloud files

    Normally I can quickly edit the placed PSD-files in Photoshop with option-click. But with the PSDC-files this option no longer works. From the Quick Options menu there are no apps under the 'edit with' menu. If the files are on the computer, it works fine.
    Will this option also be available for PSD files that are in the Creative Cloud?
