          # 16 already exists in CS5.  All tools are now "spring loaded." Press and hold V for Selection tool, A for Direct Select. Release teh key to return to the previous tool.

            Dear Peter I did it but its not working, as you said, & also when selection Tool is selected we must be able to select direct selection tool by pressing Ctrl key to get it temporarly & if direct selection tool is slected we would press Ctrl key to get selection tool temporarly. like Illustrator. bytheway I am using Middle Eastern, maybe That problem is in M.E.

            But thats OK!!! Pressing Ctrl key to get these tools temporarly is better idea than pressing their own shortcuts.

            & Adobe should remove Frame Tools from InDesign b/c everyone knows these days, in InDesign basic shape tools can be changed into Frames & text frames, & text Frames also. Why rough/extra icons are needed?? in beautiful interface of lovely InDesign, few people say this is just for Quark Express user or another page layout program users, but in my idea every one know, now InDesign is the worlds no: 1 application for pagelayout & every one can see the free tutorials on TV.Adobe.com & if any person who is new user of InDesign, when that person start InDesign, that person will be welcomed by InDesign's Beautiful welcome screen, & in welcome screen there is written "Learn more about Adobe© Indesign© CS5 on Adobe TV", now no body should say ooooh with internet connected we are able to see these text!!!!! I know, but in these days computer users always use net, or I should say internet is the part of modern life, its enough to understand.


            20th. feature

            Script in InDesign ???? why ?

            in future there must be Actions in InDesign, just like Illustrator & Photoshop so that every user of indesign can understand actions in Ai & Ps, Ps & Ai users can understand in ID easily, it will be the best for new & old users. I know actions are also script, but action are easy to understand & easily can be created by anyone, & history panel is also necessary for InDesign, I know thirdparty plugins are available, but Adobe should release their applications flexible for Adobe users.
