    Hello All,

    Kindly provide more information about this ask. How do you plan to use the Action Panel in InDesign? Do you want it to work exactly like that in Photoshop? What are the most important actions/operations that you want to record?

    It baffles me that this does not exist yet.
    I use the Actions panel to create custom registration marks around any selection in Illustrator, please incorporate this in InDesign.
    Following is an excerpt of my (recorded!) action:

    1. group current selection and name the grouped object via Object Description (i.e. "tempObject")
    2. paste predefined registration mark and name it ("regOne")
    3. select all
    4. align to top and to left
    5. select objects with the name "regOne"
    6. transform 15 mm to the left
    7. duplicate the object and name the result "regTwo"

    etcetera etcetera...
