1.   For the text Inset controls (Text Frame>General>Insets) why not have a logical interface design where 'locality' controls are placed in a 'logical' layout?  See attachment for roughed-up design. :) This is in contrast to the existing illogical placement of Left Right Top Bottom.

There are several other parts of the UI where this logical placement of controls could be implemented. For example, in the ill-designed pop-up Text Wrap window, which not only suffers from this illogical placement of locality controls but also very inefficient use of UI space.

2.   Is it possible to have user-selected negative (-n) values in the text inset control fields? This effectively creates a text outset  control which is very useful in certain circumstances.  (Negative values are allowed in Text Wrap, so here's hoping for the same with text inset)

Thanks for everything done so far. :6_smile:
