  1. Allow sub-groups to be seen when re-linking to CC Library for quicker workflow

    Sub-groups in libraries are super helpful for locating an asset quickly, but when you're re-linking an asset to the CC Library the Sub-Groups disappear and you have to scroll through hundreds of images across all brands and categories hoping to find the right image.

  2. User Groups in libraries instead of sharing to individuals

    When Using Libraries to share files to other users it would benefit from being able to create groups of users to send to rather than adding each individual email address for each user every time.

  3. Link artboard from a file in a CC Library.

    There should be a way to link an artboard from a file in a CC Library as you can do when linking from a local file.

  4. Allow Illustrator Cloud Documents to be Placed in Other Adobe Applications

    Since the new updates with the cloud have been happening, Illustrator pushes you to save into the cloud and buy storage for said cloud... The only issue is the clouds documents only work with Illustrator.

    It would be nice to link/place these cloud files into an InDesign document/project or Photoshop etc. Especially with workflows using IPads. The way the cloud is right now almost makes the cloud pointless for many professional users.

    Workflow is essential, so if you update something and try pushing it, at least make it work across all areas, not just one. I understand this is still…

  5. Edit Library graphic in place

    Graphics you add to your library can only be edited in a separate file window. I would like to be able to edit the library graphic in place.

    This would save time when editing graphics to make them more universally useful for me.

  6. Easily move large number of swatches into a cc library

    Companies offer free downloads of their color libraries, typically over 1000 individual color swatches. Currently, each swatch has to be moved one-by-one into a library. It's extremely time consuming and tedious. I have talked to numerous customer service agents and there is no satisfactory work around.

    Create an easy way to transfer numerous color swatches at once into a library (which allows for use of the search bar feature). Using ccda>your work>upload does not work either.

  7. Open Library file

    It would be great if the initial Illustrator screen included an "open from Library" option. This may already be there but if it is, it was not obvious enough for me to find 😬. I often want to edit or open library assets and I think it would be great if I didn't have to create a new file in order to be able to open library items.

  9. Sharing a Batch of Files for Feedback & Review

    The new 2022 features include the ability to share a single document and get feedback within the CC software from other contributors on any internet browser. Please add the ability for users to share multiple files at a single time. I need to be able to send a batch of files for review.

    Thanks!

  10. Make it possible to actually open Cloud Docs....

    The idea of cloud docs is wonderful, but the reality is intensely frustrating.

    File created in the studio; a simple text logo. Retun home need to make a change. Impossible to open.

    "Make file available offline" Done. Still impossible to open.

    Identical version of Illustrator on both Macs. Multiple occurrences. It has happened in reverse too

    Workaround > Store files on a disk. Transfer manually. (Not what Adobe want to hear!)

    I should add that this a a regular problem on PS too, so a broader Creative Cloud, issue. Oh and the internet connection is Gigabit, so not a speed…

  11. Recently Added Items

    Hi. My name is Reza Alavi, Design Manager in XBOX design studio Microsoft. We use Adobe Illustrator as our base software for illustration and we recently started using the cloud library which is really great. However we have a suggestion to add a feature that might help us a lot. It would be awesome to have a view of libraries of "recently added items"

    Right now there is a filter for "date modified" but it's not clear what items were added/modified, just a resorting of the library lists.

    This would help us to know what new items are added recently…

  12. Vector Importing for Library Assets

    I would like the option to be able to import vector CC Library Assets as live vectors (rather than as a link) in Illustrator.

    This is a vector editing software.....and the asset I'm grabbing from the library to bring in as a vector asset (and probably originally built in Illustrator).....why can't I have an alternate means (ex. Shift+Drag for import = import as live vector art) to be able to bring the asset in as an editable piece of art?

  13. There are a number of issues with Adobe Libraries - Recovery, Archive, Search

    Library backups/Recovery - I have just had an issue of losing a library of over 200+ logos. Whether this was because of a glitch or human error isn’t clear. One thing that is clear is that there is currently no way of recovering libraries.

    Archive old libraries - Also we have old libraries which we spent time creating for all of our clients. Half of these clients are no longer working with us, we need to keep their folders incase they re engage with us however they are cluttering up the menu.

    Search function - The search function seems useless.…

  14. Allow for graphics placed from CC Library to be expanded and converted to curves

    Right now, when you place a vector from the CC Library, you can't use it as if it were a vector created on the spot. This hinders speed of creation and prevents 2 crucial things:

    1. You can't change colors of the vector without editing the original CC item
    2. You can't use it with pathfinder for a print job for example (imagine you want to cut a shape out of PVC or something). Right now, to do this, you must double click the library item, copy and paste it on your document.

    Altough it might not seem much work, if, for…

    You can drag an asset with the Alt/Opt key held to embed it instead of placing.

    However, please note a PDF-copy of an asset is used, and not the original artwork you had imported into a Library, which means the embedded copy can have extra clipping masks and expanded effects.

  15. Content of Library assets do not show in Outline Mode

    The content (paths, type, etc.) of Library assets do not shot in Outline Mode (CMD+Y).

    This makes them difficult/impossible to work with precisely or in complicated artwork.

  16. Improve Library Panel UX with prefered behaviour options

    There are a number of small changes that would make getting things out of the library quicker and more convenient. The panel should have some preferences to set default behaviour. Options should include:

    • Toggle 'place copy' or 'place linked file', so it always behaves one way or the other. The way my team and I use the library, we ALWAYS want to place copies (never linked files). So having to hold down ALT to do this is a pain. In addition to this, holding down ALT behaves very badly. It misses the key press if you move too quickly, meaning…

  17. drag an illustrator layer onto the library pallet

    after converting an image to outlines with image trace then expanding it i wanted to drag this onto the library .. it did not let me .

    i would assume the same functionality as copy and paste into photo shop when when i drag it on the library it would ask if i want it to be smart object, or bitmap etc..

  18. Opening Fresco files from the cloud with Illustrator

    Hello, it's really great that Illustrator can now open files from the cloud. But unfortunately not the sketches from Fresco. You still have to export them first and then you can open them in Illustrator. It would be great if you could change that, i.e. open PSDC files from the cloud in Illustrator. Thanks a lot

    Hi,

    You are now able to send Fresco files to Illustrator on the desktop with the latest version of Fresco and Illustrator. You can also place embed Fresco files in Illustrator. Please give it a try. In the future, we will also add smoother options to copy paste objects on both the Illustrator surfaces – desktop and iOS.

    Thanks,
    Sanjit

  19. Library search and place behaviour

    As I drag an item out of the library panel, as soon as the item clears the edge of the panel, the search results reset to whatever library I was looking at before; the search results are lost.

    This frequently results in me having to repeat the exact same search multiple times over which can be madening. Consider the following situations:

    1) I forgot to alt-click/my alt-click didn't register, and I'm stuck with a linked file which can't be converted to a useful vector (I've never yet actually wanted to place a linked file from the library, so having that…
