    I wish InDesign would CONSOLIDATE all the Recent Files suggestions. There is so much overlap, but individual postings have only a few votes. The Recent panel is so devoid of important, obvious features. We need to MANAGE recent files, sort by date or project or client, honor the file system so files can be organized, handle more than a few dozen files, group by key-words, etc.

    I should have given this a more descriptive title: Recent Files Are Removed by Book Operations

    I'll post a very concise FR on this. I hope the redundancy is OK, since I'm sure others find their workflow hindered by this behavior.

    It's unfortunate that although everyone I discuss the Recent Files design with agrees -- it's not very useful, and especially useless if you use the BOOKS facilities -- none of them has the time to find this particular FR and vote or comment on it.

    Every time I start InDesign, I'm looking at a full list of recent files, but almost ALL of them are just chapters in a book. In that book, I made ONE change that altered the page breaks in an early chapter, so ALL the chapters were opened automatically and their page numbers were updated. So now every chapter is a Recent File! This is beyond useless -- it destroys any usefulness the Recents panel might have to offer.

    Please fix this. The Recents facility could be SO useful, but as it is I can't get any value out of it in any of the CC apps.

    The Recent pane should be a file management workspace, not just a very short list. We need to MANAGE recent files, sort by date or project or client, honor the file system so files can be organized, handle more than a few dozen files, group by key-words, etc.

    David's suggestion is a good one -- just list the BOOK FILE, and don't list the chapter files that it references, since the book file itself serves the same purpose (much more usefully) as the Recent Workspace.

    Unfortunately, this still requires maintaining some metadata on the chapter files, since they may be opened individually and not through the book file. The programming required to do this would be better applied to improving the overall functionality of the Recent Workspace itself. So many file management features are missing that the whole panel is little more than just a huge version of the original drop-down recent file list.

    We need to MANAGE recent files, sort by date or project or client, honor the file system so files can be organized, handle more than a few dozen files, group by key-words, etc.

    I agree that David's solution to the book problem is simpler than what I'm requesting. But file management by project or by client (or anything else if keywords are supported) is a basic need for anyone working with large numbers of files, projects, or clients. So I would be very grateful if David's solution were implemented. But I'd still be in serious need for a really useful Recent Files facility. All it is now is a visually lavish equivalent to the old dropdown list of the last <n> files opened. Useful, yes, but only in a tremdously limited, unimaginative way.

    It would certainly help if ID just excluded books accessed via the Book panel, but (a) often one has to access those files outside the Book panel, and ID would have to check to see if a file is part of a book, (b) some files are used both in a book and as stand-alone files, and (c) file management is still desperately needed for organizing clients, projects, etc.

    Just to be perfectly clear, this behavior is occurring on PC's with the NumLock OFF (i.e., the number pad is in navigation mode).

    This behavior is NOT happening on a Mac, where you can use Opt+PgDn while editing in a text frame, without entering random glyphs.

    I'm glad this is in the backlog, but that was in late 2017!

    I hope it gets pushed up to the top before another 2-3 years go by. I'm getting old.....

    Text variables and live captions are SIGNIFICANTLY USELESS without proper embedding in the specified paragraph styles. This means embedding, of course, but it also means full styling capability as well. The instance of a variable's text should be inserted into the parent text flow before styles are applied.

    The controlling paragraph style can then properly format the inserted text, including character styles, embedded styles, and GREP styles.

    @Jack - Yes, thanks, I am aware of that. I do it all the time, but it's not a style. It's a work-around. If I want to promote a run-in workaround to a real heading, I have to edit it out of the paragraph, create a new style, and paste the text into a new paragraph with that style. If I want to demote a real heading to a run-in heading, I have to go through a similar, but even less convenient, rigamarole.

    The whole point of style sheets is to avoid that kind of repetitive manual busywork. I appreciate your suggestion, but it doesn't really fulfill the need for REAL run-in heading styles!

    YES! Please! This is a terribly important feature.

    Just add the checkbox ("Apply Space Before on new pages or columns")!

    I use the obscure "Rule Above, Keep in Frame" technique as a work-around EVERY DAY, and I can't believe this is required. When the layout engine checks to see if a paragraph is first in a page or frame, just ALSO check to see if this option is enabled for that style, and if so, HONOR the Space Above setting.

    A slight improvement would be to have a SECOND Space Above setting ("Space Above on new column") so we can have one setting for contiguous paragraphs, and a special setting for the first occurrence. But this is minor compared to the main idea -- for chapter titles to FLOW, we MUST honor the Space Above value.
