    Photoshop can open them – it's high time that InDesign can import them without first converting via Photoshop.

    Many versions later, Command-N STILL doesn't work. Please, it's a minor thing but irritating as heck. All your other apps have this basic Mac 101 command. Why did InDesign nuke it?

    Please, please, please fix this. The fact that Command-N, which works for other Adobe apps (Illustrator, Photoshop) and is a universal and ancient command for Apple apps, doesn't work with InDesign is inexcusable. Every day, I hear that annoying beep when I try to create a new folder and have to interrupt my flow and move my mouse to create New Folder. It doesn't sound like much, but it makes my blood boil every time. FIX THIS.

    Actually, it HASN'T been fixed. Do your people even use InDesign? It's such a simple thing to check: Launch InDesign. Open a file with "Command-O." ****. I can't. Sigh. Mouse goes to "open file," as the user mutters curses for adding a millisecond to their workflow. All those milliseconds spent because InDesign isn't adhering to standard keyboard commands add up!

    So, the new version, 2021, still hasn't fixed this. Seriously? Is it Adobe policy that we need to use a mouse on the opening of the app to open or create a file – and after that, we're allowed to use keyboard commands? This should be a simple fix, yet several versions have passed. It's so minor, why am I writing about it? Because it interrupts workflow.

    This is infuriating. Many versions have had this simple bug: Command-O doesn't work on launch, only after the first document is open. Seriously? It should be a simple fix. I use keyboard commands all the time to speed my workflow. This bug is glaring and in my face whenever I launch the app. It seems minor, but it reflects on the integrity of your product.

    This issue isn't fixed. I'm running 16.1, latest version. It changes all the time, I have to keep going to Bridge to reset. Annoying, irritating, this never needed to happy. Why does Adobe build as many new bugs as they do new features?

    There's a good script that does this, you can see the video with a link to the script download here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDRyZd3A71k

    Attaching file here as a workaround.

    You can add the object having the gradient swatch to the CC Libraries as a ‘Graphic’ in Illustrator. Then you can choose Place Linked/Place Copy in CC Libraries to use that object in InDesign. At this time, it is yet not possible to add Gradient/Pattern swatches to CC Libraries in Illustrator, so you have to add the object to the CCLib and then place that object in other apps like InDesign.

    Yes, thanks, I'm aware of that, and the object I shared was from my CC Library. I have been doing what you suggest. I don't use gradients that much, but in this rare case, I had to apply it to large type. My workaround was to convert the type to outlines, then paste the gradient object inside. However, then the type is no longer type, and I'm unable to create an accessible PDF. This is a rare instance, I admit, but you advertise the CC Library as a way to seamlessly link CC apps. I see why you can't share patterns, as ID doesn't have that capability – but both apps share a gradient palette, and I see no reason not to allow them to talk to each other. Thanks for the quick response.

    Illustrator had this issue – now it's migrated to InDesign. Seriously, the problem with all these updates are these silly bugs with the most basic commands. Adobe tries to wow us with new features, while letting core commands lapse. Please fix this.
