Oddly enough, they do. It takes them a while but I spoke to the product manager for Adobe Technical Communication Suite at the 2011 STC conference. I complained about the crappy grayscale toolbar buttons in FrameMaker. I told him that I had taken a screen capture from FrameMaker and overhauled almost all the toolbar buttons. He listened to me, gave me his card and asked me to send him my screen capture.

I emailed it to him shortly after I returned home from the conference. Then, to my surprise, about a month ago, he contacted me and asked me if I would be willing to discuss it with a member of his team. I said yes and had a lengthy conversation with the team member, explained my rationale for the changes I was suggesting and also sent him a screen capture of my heavily customized Microsoft Word toolbars.

So, perhaps my suggestions may make it into the next release of FrameMaker.

Best Regards,

Mike

frustrating, however, in that I'm using a CS3 version that obviously needs
a lot of UI enhancements (and Adobe doesn't bother to solicit any of my
input).<snip>
