    I can't believe there is still no way to make run-in headings!

    Sure, I can fake them, but not as actual headings. Anonymous's suggested solution would work great!

    I used to use settings just like what he's saying back in Lotus's AmiPro word processor. It seems incredible that InDesign can't do this.

    The utility of the opening page, Recents, etc., is embarassingly limited. This would help a lot to overcome such annoyances as "filling the Recents list with the chapters of one book project" after, for example, a repagination operation. If you have 30 chapters in a book, the Recents list becomes USELESS. At least with a Favorites option we could keep a few current work-products in view.

    This is an important feature. Although indenting everything ELSE is an ok work-around, it's a bit silly in such an advanced compositor environment.

    This also might be a precursor to providing for real run-in headings. But I'm getting off-topic. I think there's an FR for that somewhere....

    The startup page should use its real estate for more important things, like controlling the Recents list. It's also insulting to the intelligence of the user to throw pep-talk at her or him. Professional tools are the WRONG place for this kind of condescending, childish, totally irrelevant noise.

    As a former software architect, I've always wondered why "dump capitalization" is the norm throughout editing apps, and has been since Day One -- it's not that hard to do!

    The preferred rule should be selectable on a per-document basis so we don't have to keep picking the rule to use (although that could be done, if a specific title needed to be handled differently).

    Hydra's enhancement is a very good idea. A discreet little COPY button in each section would do it.

    Absolutely! It is much better UX to see all the settings instead of using a drop-down to select. Since they all fit, this would be more convenient in many ways.

    As a general rule, if there are only a few choices, radio buttons or tabs are better than drop-downs. Better yet, show all the choices at once if there's room

    One big problem with drop-downs is that you have to click just to see what the choices are. These controls should only be used when there are too many choices to show them all at once.

    The fix for this issue is now available in the latest update 14.0.2 of InDesign 2019.
    If you are unable to see the update notification yet, open the menu (three dots) from the top-right of Creative Cloud desktop application and click on ‘Check For App Updates’.
    Once the update button is shown against InDesign, click on the button to update to Id 14.0.2.

    If you face any problems with the new update, do let us know in the comments.

    Release 13.1 x64 STILL doesn't follow standard Windows UI behavior. The app opens in "restored" mode (that is, the window size last used when the app was closed) INCORRECTLY. It always opens at 99% of full screen.

    This means that people with big screens have to manually resize the app window EVERY TIME they start a new session with InDesign. This is (a) inconvenient, and (b) extremely annoying after one has done it a few hundred times.

    No other Windows apps that I use have this bug. It's standard Windows UI behavior to honor the "restore" window size and position.

    PLEASE fix this bug. It's been in InDesign fora very long time (forever?).

    Thank you.
