    I agree this is needed but I think it will have to be supplied by Amazon, who seem to have lost interest.

    I think you will find the fix you need under Bugs, 'BUG Keypress doesn´t respond'.

    The trouble with this request is that not everyone uses inches or wants a stand-off of .5 in. You can achieve the result you want by setting the slug to .5 in. and choosing 'include slug area' when you export to PDF. This will work with any units and any stand-off.

    Direct import of charts from Excel (with edit in original) would certainly be useful but now that the engineers working on Illustrator are considering improving or replacing the graphing function in that app., I wouldn't support a graphing function in InDesign.

    Lindsey Thomas Martin commented  · 

    This is very important to me, since each year I place hundreds of charts in the documents I edit. Most of my authors are economists, who also use charts extensively. At the moment, my workflow is Excel > Illustrator > InDesign, but the graphing function in Illustrator is antiquated, inefficient, and unreliable. Please do not try to port or imitate Illustrator's graphing function in ID.

    My colleague designs and places images of Excel charts in InDesign but, as noted above, this workflow is inefficient as correxions are frequent and it is difficult to construct a graph in Excel that integrates well with the layout in InDesign.

    I would be happy with a plug-in or third-party tool but it would need to run the Adobe type engine and provide the same control of colour and geometry that one has in the CC apps.

    Yes, this would be helpful. A counter for signatures (number of pages to be set by operator) would also be a help.

    I notice that Photoshop and Illustrator support this. Apparently, the forthcoming Quark XPress 2018 will also.

    At the moment you can give this effect by adding a narrow column where you want the break and removing the strokes where desired.

    One way to program this, I suppose, would be to have the indents of the cells affect the strokes.

    I have had this happen though not recently. I work on a Mac but it is possible that the files came from a colleague who works on a PC. It appears that, in Layout > Numbering and Section Options …, Start Page Numbering was reset to 1 for a number of the files in the book. This is easy to fix manually but it is annoying that one has to do so.

    Need more info  ·  Anonymous responded

    Thanks for making this request. In order to understand the use-case more better I have a few questions:

    1. Whats the role of the different people working collaboratively on the same file. Are they always only designers or are other personas also involved.
    2. What is the use-case here, some parts of this request suggest an Editorial collaboration whereas others suggest collaboration amongst different designers. I am trying to separate these 2 requests out.
    3. What are the different kind of files (brochures, books, magazines etc) for which this is required.
    4. Does it need to be a web based service, or having the user be able to collaborate on one shared file using InDesign or InCopy on the Desktop will work? What is the advantage you feel over a web-service over the desktop app?
    5. How do you workaround this need today? What are the most important problems with…

    Javed, I believe you are correct that there are two use cases. I'll call them [1] editorial and [2] collaborative.

    [1] Editorial, when editorial, design and production work with authors, in-house or out of house, who have written a piece that will be published under their names. In this case, it is important that changes to the text and design be clearly presented to the authors on the proofs, their correxions included, and their approval of final page proofs secured. Tracking changes and controlling versions is very important as lawsuits are possible if such a piece is published and the author discovers correxions not made or unapproved changes after publication.

    [2] Collaborative, when writers, editorial, design and production, often some in house and others out of house, work to produce a publication and/or a set of collateral assets for an organisation. The chief needs here are, I think, for a tracked but flexible exchange of ideas and suggestions as the products are written, designed, and produced.

    Would one service fit both cases? Possibly, though I think the collaborative workflow is where you will find the low-hanging fruit, for reasons put forward in the discussion of import and export of comments between ID and PDF. We run both workflows in parallel though, at the moment, the editorial uses sequential proofs in PDF sent via e-mail, and the collaborative relies heavily on face-to-face meetings.

    Going a little beyond the initial request, it would be useful if title case followed the rules about which words are not to be capitalised: usually, articles, conjunctions and prepositions that do not occur as the first word in the title.
