    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?

    Realizing now that this is an old post, but this feature is still desperately needed within InDesign. Scripting is great an all, but an actions panel that works just like the Actions panel in Photoshop would change the game for designers like myself that are involved in mass scale production. I work for Lifetouch, and we have to convert an incredible amount of print materials into editable PDFs with layer versioning at various sizes, and also have to move contents of some pages to other pages etc. It is horribly tedious, and if I could just record the action once and click a button to run it again and again, it would save the design team here ridiculous amounts of time.
