    Just tried it today with these files using InDesign 14.0.2 on a Mac running Mojave 10.14.6. Bug remains.

    Sorry, I posted when I still had the search term as my title. Title should be: Overprint in Illustrator patterns does not preview

    This can already be accomplished using the more powerful, but more complicated, GREP Styles.

    Agreed. The default behaviour should be a dialogue where you can enter the name and adjust other attributes. A common case is when I format some body copy to make a subhead style. I’ll change the font and paragraph spacing because those are easily accessible in the panels, but keep options and paragraph rules are not as easy to access, so I’ll add those features in the Style Options dialogue. I’ll also, of course, name the style.

    I can’t recall ever not wanting to access the Style Options dialogue when I create a new style. It should be the default, or selectable as the default in Preferences.

    Agreed.

    Another needed feature for gradients is some control over how the gradient aligns with text. Currently the gradient is pinned to the text frame. If the text changes position or size the gradient stays the same. It’s like the text is a window showing the gradient applied to the text frame. Adjusting the text adjusts the window, leaving the gradient alone. The workaround is to highlight the text, convert to paths, then apply the gradient to the outlined type. It works, but it means you can’t use text styles or outlines. Why can’t you use outlines? Outlines applied to text converted to paths are not properly aligned to the inside/outside of inner paths (like the inside of an O or P). This is a bug.

    First, Affinity Publisher doesn’t merge the features of Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo into one program. For sure such a change would be very unwanted in InDesign. Unwanted by Adobe, by their programmers, by developers, and by users.

    Second, speed is a minor issue. Zooming is not an issue to me. Launch time is irrelevant because I launch InDesign rarely; it’s always running.

    Third, the interface can be cumbersome to new users. But considering the features the program must support and the breadth of those features (commands to control character formatting, paragraph formatting, object formatting, styles, document wide features, automation, scripting, interactivity, and much more) I find the interface more than adequate. Try QuarkXPress someday.

    Fourth, if you have so much more then post those as separate requests. Be specific and if you really want to get attention and create a discussion offer an alternative.

    This merely sort files by their creation data or last date modified. It has nothing to do with when the font was activated.

    Scott Falkner commented  · 

    This is probably not possible. The OS (Windows or Mac) likely doesn't record this or report it to applications. The closest you could get is to have InDesign constantly monitor the Font menu and log changes so that newly installed or activated fonts can be shuffled to the top. That doesn’t sound too difficult, but it could slow performance as the log gets longer and longer as more fonts are activated and deactivated. As the log gets longer the time needed to search through it and sort by activation date and time would make just opening the font menu a nightmare. If you have to wait two seconds every time you open the font menu you will either stop opening the font menu or turn the sort feature off and flush the log.

    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?

    Thanks

    Actions could significantly fill in gaps in other incomplete features. For example, Table and Cell Styles are terrible for complex tables. Row high and column width are completely absent, as is any way to specify the styles of cells in the middle of a table. Actions could record setting a row height or column width, selecting all the cells in a row, and applying a Cell Style. put all that into one action and formatting complex tables consistently (although without full style support) would be much easier.

    Photoshop and Illustrator have been greatly improved by adding actions, although Illustrator, as is its custom, handles actions worse. InDesign would likewise be made much better with actions, especially if they supported variables and conditions.
