Please Adobe, make your Creative Suite truly integrated with at least our own products. I want to be able to use LR to import,view and manage PDF files (an Adobe standard). I can do it in Bridge without any fuss, why can't I do it in LR. I understand this feature request goes back at least 8 years and still nothing has been done about it. If you negelect the very core premise of your CC products, i.e. seamless workflow integration, then Adobe and the CC suite will soon lose relevance and value, a competitor will come along that listens to its user needs and they will attract your customers. Once you lose your customers trust and confidence, it is very hard (and expensive) to win them back. I have been an Adobe LR user since the beta days, it is generally a good product, but it is losing its shine. In the past, third party LR plugins like import anyfile would get around this issue but that no longer works with latest versions of LR.

Another example of lacking true integration that I have raised before is not having the ability to drag and drop edited images in LR into Indesign and keep the non destructive edits. There is Live captioning between programs, but not Live edits. A significant oversight resulting in a time consuming workflow of having to edit in Photoshop, then re-save the image so the image can be placed into indesign.

Please  stop procrastinating on this matter, you have the expertise and the ability to solve these issues quickly and efficiently, just do it.
