    This feature was built totally wrong from the beginning. It's a real pain to actually use in practice—offsetting and indenting back and forth to get a simple box around a paragraph. It should have been made to behave more like a table cell, where the shaded part becomes a "container" that has its own internal padding.

    I haven't ever found a good use case for the glorified highlighter way that it works now.

    Yes please! We currently only have "Clip To Frame" in the shading options. Which is NOT the same thing as "Keep In Frame" because it doesn't MOVE the shading down into the frame—it merely cuts it off.

    It chooses that based on what you currently have selected. So if you have NOTHING on the page selected, then go into Find/Change, it will always default to DOCUMENT scope. If you have a your cursor inside a story, it defaults to STORY. If you have words highlighted it defaults to SELECTION.

    Not sure if this is what you need, but if you select an object, then go to the layers panel and click on the colored square (righthand side of the layer row), you can then drag that square to a different layer and it will move the objects onto that layer.

    Yes we need this. So many things we work with are modular. It would be so much easier to be able to edit complex grouped modules in isolation without affecting anything else

    Photoshop can now use AI to draw us photorealistic images of anything we want, and just we're over here waiting literal decades for the ability to make some text wrap to the next line.

    Same with page number references or "markers" which seem to function the same as variables. For example, I'd like to style the page number PREFIX a little differently than than the page number. I reached for a GREP style to do this, but it's not currently possible.

    Just ran into this problem. I have a book with 3 sections. At the start of each section there is a section header style, which is used to populate a running header throughout the document. It works great when everything's kept in one single document, but if you split docs up via the BOOK feature, the individual docs are not able to "see" and continue the running headers from the previous document. Running headers / variables / should be able to communicate between the documents of a BOOK.

    Wow I just used the BOOK feature for the first time today and can't believe it doesn't show a total page count for the book!?!? What a crazy omission! It should absolutely show the book's total page count right at the bottom of the BOOK panel, just like how it's shown in the PAGES panel.

    Yes, apparently this "hidden" feature already exists since there's a keyboard shortcut for it (thanks Olaf!—I was not aware of that) so it should be super quick for Adobe to just add this to File menu where it belongs!

    I'm thinking it'll only take them about 3 years to move it into "Under Review," another 8 years to implement (incorrectly, somehow), and then 3 more years to respond to complaints and correct it. So hopefully we'll see this launch in ID 2037...fingers crossed!

    Here's another example I'm running into today: often we need to apply the character format "NO BREAK" to a couple words to keep them together on the same line. But if we make "NO BREAK" a character style, that becomes the ONLY style we can apply to those words. If the words were previously assigned a character style like BOLD/ITALIC/SUPERSCRIPT or whatever, and we then apply NO BREAK, we wipe out their previous formatting. It's silly and a huge time-waster. All styles should be stackable.

    How is the 5-year exploration process going? Really need this one to evolve. Hopping back and forth between web projects that use CSS, and going back in Indesign—where each character/paragraph can only have ONE single style applied to it, is like stepping into the dark ages. As an Indesign user for 23 years, this is the single most important feature request I can think of. While some people might not know or realize they need this, once it is added everyone will wonder how they lived without it.

    Absolutely need this!!! And I'll go further and say the same thing for paragraph styles. So tired of creating so many rigid, repetitive styles for things like [Body] [Body Indented] [Body Shaded] [Body Shaded + Indented]. Would be so much better to create simple global styles for commonly-used attributes like [Intented] [Shaded] and be able to ADD them to any other applied style. It should work exactly like CSS — we can have a paragraph with multiple classes applied, and whenever a conflict exists, the most-recently-applied style overrides the others.

    Yes in a long book or magazine, most of my time is spent manually adjusting tracking/hyphenation or applying "no break" character formatting in order to fix "runts" (agree that is the better term to use here). The GREP style workaround is too technical and cumbersome, especially when you have hundreds of paragraph styles to apply it to. This feature should be built-in as a simple checkbox. It's basic typography.

    Yes, definitely need this. And not just [ALL paragraphs of same style] but [X NUMBER OF paragraphs of the same style together] would be very helpful. Bulleted list items are one great example use case. Even though each list item is technically a separate paragraph, stylistically the overall list should often stay together like "one unit" or at least avoid widows. Right now there is no way way to say "Keep at least 3 list items at the start/end of list together." But again this should really apply to ANY paragraph style, not just lists.

    Under Review  ·  Anonymous responded

    Thanks a lot everyone for the feedback. I am moving this under review.

    Heyyyyyy there, it's me, just here chillin in almost 2024, STILL manually restyling my entire TOC for the hundredth time just because my page numbering changed slightly....wondering how your 6-year+ review process is going on this suggestion?

    I've attached a screenshot showing just one example of how the auto-generated TOC is rarely usable "as-is" without some manual tweaking. You can see the "Digital, Social, and Mobile..." line is too long. If we adjust this line manually (in ANY way), our adjustment will simply get thrown out the next time we use "Update TOC" to update the page numbers. Now imagine this in a huge book that is constantly reflowing, and/or in a more complex TOC where you may want to break the generated text into sections or apply colors or do anything creative. It's a complete nightmare having to redesign the whole TOC over and over again.

    What we need is for you to rework the TOC creation feature so that instead of just outputting basic "dumb" text into a text box, it outputs some sort of intelligent "wrapper" around the text that understands even if we adjust the formatting of a TOC item on the TOC page, it still remains "connected" to its page number reference. Then add a feature to "soft update" the TOC—meaning update the page numbers only, without losing any of our existing custom formatting. This is what the original request here is asking for.
