    This is a basic problem with the TOC feature that has been there since its inception: any local override applied to a source paragraph will be applied unchanged to the TOC entry, regardless of the font or size difference. Tweak the leading in a 24 point chapter title, and the TOC entry will acquire that (wholly inappropriate) exact leading. It's the same when titles are kerned by hand. The TOC entries inherit the custom kerning, with bizarre results:

    Hi All, thanks for this feature suggestion.

    If I understand this correctly the idea here is that you need a faster way to be able to apply Master Pages to the various pages in the document. One use case is that you want to apply a particular master page to Even and Odd pages.

    Are there other such scenarios too, where you need more support. It would be helpful if you can mention other such scenarios.

    Thanks

    The ability to find colors in documents in now available in InDesign’s latest release 16.0.

    It can be found in a new tab of Find/Change dialog – Color.
    Please let us know your feedback in comments.

    Don't forget that colors can be hidden in a character or paragraph style, too, or in a placed graphic! It can be a nightmare trying to find a tiny application of a CMYK color in a long document that must be spot-color only for output.

    The quick way to check for stray swatches is to "select all unused," delete them and see what's left, but that can lead to wasted hours of searching when the offending swatch is only in a style or an option (e.g., paragraph shading when it was cyan by default).

    Hi All,

    This indeed a great suggestion. I wanted to understand a little more about this request.

    1. The way this request is described its majorly about figuring out how to change the various text attributes in a single step rather than having to change multiple styles to make that happen. It would helpful if you can mention which all attributes you all would want to be dependent on the baseline (space before/after, size, leading any other).
    2. Which kind of documents (magazines, brochures, books etc.) do you see this to be more important for you.
    3. Wouldn’t a similar method (not sure if we could base it on baseline though!!) for changing the layout also help, if you could define the sizes of objects in relation to the page size. Do you think extending this feature to the layout also makes sense.
    4. If you can share some files…

    A more broadly useful implementation would be to allow the designer to specify font size, leading, paragraph spacing, etc., in styles to be based on a defined em. There are any number of values (text wrap space around an object, text frame inset, gutter width, margins, and, yes, baselines, just to give a few examples) that would be better expressed as a fraction or multiple of an em than an absolutely point size. This is already thoroughly implemented in the HTML specification, and would presumably make conversion from InDesign to HTML/ePub simpler to code (and to script).

    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

    Typical case: I have 30 separate textbook covers in a series and I need to make the same changes on each one, export to PDF, save and close. Of course this can be done by scripting, but that's stupidly complex compared to doing it one time and recording an Action, like in Photoshop, then repeat it for each document. Would have saved me at least a couple of hours yesterday, and would save me more than that tomorrow on a different project with similar repetitive operations.

    Ravi, the whole value of "Place Video from URL" is that it permits use of CDNs such as YouTube and Vimeo.

    Like most InDesign users, I never suspected that this functionality still, in 2019, expected the video "to be compliant with Flash Player." On the contrary, most of us assumed that because YouTube et al have long since moved away from Flash, InDesign had naturally evolved to keep up. The Help documentation online has long said that "The video must be a valid H.264-encoded file," which is NOT Flash, and doesn't mention anything about needing Flash Player..

    Your marketing folks have loudly promoted creating interactive content and rich media documents with InDesign, so you should not be surprised that the disappearance of an important rich media capability is a complete shock.

    If you want examples and use cases, look through the many documents up on "Publish Online." Even the Adobe-created examples for Publish Online use video.

    I don't buy the idea that "it was no long possible to support this particular option,." That's an excuse, not an explanation. You do not need anyone to send you examples of video clips located on web servers. There are hundreds of millions of them online. That you even ask for them suggests that you and others are not paying attention to what your marketing division promotes and your customers rely on, far less to the current publishing scene in general.

    The bottom line is that the team has removed very important functionality and should be taking URGENT action to replace it and fix the big problem you have created for your customers.
