    It's pretty obvious that the management of Adobe's InDesign team has no way to evaluate the significance of these problems and improvements. They're probably driven by marketing much, much more than by user feedback. After all, marketing addresses people who have NOT YET bought the product, while product improvement is only valuable to marketing in a very theoretical, long-term manner. So don't expect any posts on UserVoice to have an influence unless they'll produce something to ADVERTISE. Improvements and fixes are very low priority. Every 5-10 years they do a superficial clean-up of ancient postings and call them JDI projects (Just Do It). If they did JDI's every year, it would take several years to catch up, but the motivation is so low that design defects like this one, or formatting text variables, etc., may well never get done. So disappointing. When a viable alternative comes along, thousands of long-term users will abandon ship for a younger, more motivated development team.

    This is an absolute MUST HAVE feature. And the "swapimages1.js" functionality should be a native capability -- swap ANY TWO OBJECTS (for starters) and ROTATE ANY MULTI-SELECTED OBJECTS (swap their positions by rotating through the selection sequence).

    I'll post a separate UV for the SWAP feature. Although I may have already asked for it....

    This is a pretty old bug, too.

    This is wasting a lot of time for me. Since it happens ALMOST every time I make a PDF for the printer, it means I have to make the PDF over and over until it comes out right.

    This is a big problem for me. And I'm doing a book with lots of tinted para borders now, so I would REALLY like to see this fixed.

    BTW, The original poster emailed me that the bug ID is 4239459, but I don't see that number anywhere in these bug reports. In fact, I don't see how to look up a bug by its ID number.

    This feature really should be built in. But it shouldn't be limited to images -- let us swap any two objects. I frequently need to swap text boxes ("stories") in a magazine layout, and almost as often I need to swap a text box with a picture, or rotate 3 or more objects positions on a page.

    So to be complete, let the SWAP feature also "rotate" the object positions when more than 2 are selected.

    This is an important time-saving feature that should be built in. But don't limit it to swapping images -- let us swap ANY OBJECTS.

    And if, say, 3 objects are selected, then swap them in the sequence in which they were selected. Move 1 to the position of 2, and 2 to the position of 3, and 3 to the position of 1.

    @Abhinav Agarwal - Is this very important behavior STILL on the list? Your message is now about five years old, so it seems to be very, very low priority. And yet text variables are a central feature of any text presentation app.

    I'm worried that this whole area of improvement may never happen.

    Good grief, yes! All variable text MUST be part of the flow that GREP sees. Variables surely would be expanded before passing the paragraph on to GREP. Surely ... !

    Its REALLY ENCOURAGING that this FIX went on the list for future release -- IN 2017!

    It must be ALMOST DONE by now. Wow. I can't wait. Sheesh!

    This would be a terrific feature. Also the Columns capability Grant mentioned.

    Please, fix this. Just save the app position and dimensions on exit, like every other Win app does.
