  1. 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…

  3. multiple users working on the same file

    I'm working for a big company and recently we updated our brand. I'm in charge of organizing the illustrations. As for now there is no way for me to share a file that could be updated online to all our designers. Something like Google slides for instance.

  4. The ability to add CSS code from the Generator to CC libraries

    Hi there, I wanted to put in a feature request that would allow a designer to add CSS code from the generator to be added to CC libraries as a text file.

    As a designer, I create elements for our dev team and they are able to take the CSS code I generate from my designs and integrate it into another product for web development. But it would be good to give them a CSS library folder where they can access the code for the designs. At the moment in my testing, it only creates a graphic of the text,…

  6. Library disappear glitch

    Had this issue in the past and it still comes up. Libraries disappear from my workspace when I click tab or some combination of keys that I'm not sure of. Before, I used to have to shut down Ai altogether but at least now I can go to the drop down menu to retrieve them. This shouldn't happen in the first place though.

  7. Some type of notification when a linked CC library asset has changed...

    I'd like some type of notification when a CC library asset changes so I can choose to keep the current version (essentially un-linking it) or update to the latest version. This notification should happen when opening documents as well as while they are open. It does not have to be a modal dialog, it could also just be that the asset gets an icon or is highlighted somehow - but something noticeable. Better would be the ability to specify whether I want it to update art automatically, notify me that an updated asset is available by highlighting somehow, or notify…

  8. Update linked assets for large number of files

    I have an asset in CC Libraries that I used in 50+ ai files. Those ai files are then used in a layout in InDesign. If i change the asset in CC Libraries I would like a way to force an update of that asset to all those AI files so that the update propagates through to my InDesign layout.

  9. Bring back free assets and the ability to search in CC for them

    Adobe recently took away a feature which was part of the cloud subscription which really sucks!

  12. Adobe Libraries — Point/Direct to the ACTUAL original file to edit

    The more I use libraries, the more I like it! However, instead of creating a "virtual" library of duplicated files, maybe store/use the ACTUAL original file so as to reduce loads of duplicated files, confusion as to the "latest" version(s) created and a crazy file naming system.

    Right now this is what it does:
    Actual Original File: SSRLogoRGB.ai
    Clicking on "Edit Original" in any Adobe program: SSRLogoRGB_cf14017d-6564-4298-9f8f-d800bd2b4a91.ai

  13. File transfer time via CC too long !!

    The process to synchronize files on the Creative Cloud is not practical for small bandwidths.

    It is painful to sometimes wait several hours for file synchronization on the CC

    I would like to choose among several files the one that I would like to synchronize in priority.

  14. Disable scale stroke on placed CC files

    We would like to have the option to disable the scaling of stroke in placed (linked) CC library files. Ie. if we scale the placed file 200% the stroke of the object in the file stays at 1pt instead of increasing to 2pt.

    We have a CC library with a large component library with various electronic and mechanical components. These components should always look exactly the same, but sometimes they need to be scaled. When they are scaled they need to keep the original stroke weight in order to look the same as the other placed components. Since there is…

  16. Libraries - Add Ability to Drag-and-Drop Swatches from Library Panel to Swatches Panel

    Add ability to drag-and-drop a color swatch from the Library Panel to the Swatches Panel.

    The functionality exists in the Library Panel Menu, but can't be executed by drag-and-drop. Drag-and-drop swatches is a age-old UI convention in Illustrator and it feels broken that a user can't currently do this.

  17. Libraries Versioning

    when using Libraries, the elements placed from a library are linked by default to the library, this could pose a problem when the source is edited.

    it would be great if the libraries worked like git hub and integrated a versioning system to allow for variations on a theme / symbol

    right clicking on an item in the library could offer the ability to view history and this would open a github like page.

  18. Allow more than 5 swatches to be saved as a color theme

    Please allow users to save more than 5 color swatches as a theme in Libraries. The number is very restrictive to our workflow.

  19. CC Libraries: Add ability to drag new assets directly into a Library Group

    Currently, any asset dragged to the libraries panel gets added to the Ungrouped section. Let's narrow the focus down and let us drop into any one of the displayed groups.

    This would save immeasurable amounts of time having to hunt down and sort after the fact.

  20. Linked assets swap feature

    Being designing 748 cards for EDU purposes, I suggest a feature that will let us swap assets stored in the cloud libraries the way we do with symbols.

    The reason :
    Linked assets between documents is a very handy feature
    But symbols cannot store linked assets .
    And symbols can be swapped in their own libraries which is also very handy, but these libraries are not linked between documents.
    As linked assets can store symbols, if we could swap linked assets containing symbols, it would be a big time saving.

    Regards
    Rodolfo Santos.
