  2. Keeping same values as original files (ai)

    Working on repetitive files with slight copy change is nice to store in the libraries. I enjoy the quick and easy access to the files. But they do not retain the same value as originally dragged into the libraries. The measurements are converted to pixels. The bleed and art board values are consolidated. It would be nice to store all values from AI into the libraries.
    Thank you!

  3. Transfer files from Illustrator to Draw

    It's easy to put files onto Illustrator from Draw, but there's no way to put them back in. I'd like to be able to seamlessly go between the two.

  4. Support for 9-slice scaling for assets in libraries

    Many projects rely on the sharing of assets, but when these can't be correctly scaled or stretched due to the lack of support for 9-slice scaling, the shared library is of little use. It is especially a problem in responsive projects, where a number of items can have varying heights or withs such as menu bars, buttons and modals.

    This has been a problem for years now.

    When can we expect to see this remedied?

  5. Library Organization

    I can't figure out a way to organize our cloud libraries. We are trying to make one library per client and having everything in chronological order can make it really hard to find icons and other elements that could be grouped by category. If we could drag them around to rearrange that would be great, if we could create little groups or folders of them like swatches that would be even better.

    Thank You!

  6. Creative Cloud Files appear in Library Panel in Illustrator

    Currently folders and files in the Creative Cloud Files folder are local and synchronise with the cloud. They are visible on the website but are separate from Creative Cloud Libraries that we use inside Illustrator. It’s tantalisingly close to being an awesome feature, yet…

    Please join them up! Make creative cloud files visible in the libraries panel in Illustrator, and vice versa; and make the libraries available locally.

  8. CC Library Items give wrong preview when dragged to artboard.

    Objects dragged from a CC library as linked give sometimes a wrong preview.
    Switching to CPU preview or dragging an embedded copy can solve it .

  9. Asset name focus after dragging asset to cc library panel

    I create a lot of Creative Cloud library assets, usually by dragging vectors from my canvas directly onto the Libraries panel. I like to immediately name my assets, so it would be a huge time-saver if, once an asset had been successfully dragged, the "name" field got focus. As is, I need to mouse over to the panel and double-click to rename.

  10. Adobe CC Library Dropdown Categories and Groups

    Adobe CC Library Dropdown Categories and Groups + Backup

    Categories - I work for a large company, and while I LOVE the libraries, I hate scrolling. I'd love to be able to categorize them; for example, "Branding," "Imagery," "Products," "Stock," "Case Studies," "Creative" to cut down on the mega scroll effect.

    Groups - Reiterating what another user said, group folders WITHIN the libraries would be very useful for one-off clients (or product launches) where you need to have lots of information in one library collection.

    Backup - We need to be able to backup these libraries or have history restore…

  11. CC Libraries import - unnecessary extra clicks and groups.

    In the previous version, to bring a library element in you simple alt-dragged it and, upon releasing it, it would be in. Now there's an extra click to place the thing, which is totally unnecessary and annoying.

    Also, library items appear inside a group which isn't in the file itself. Also unnecessary and annoying. Please set these features back to how they were before (just a simple alt-drag-release to place a library item, and no extra grouping).

  12. Export from Libraries

    Sometimes clients ask for icons and other assets to be delivered separately. If we could export items from the library or drag directly from the library to the asset export window it would be fantastic!

  13. Move elements in CC libraries around

    I would love to be able to create more sub-folders in libraries and be able to move elements with each folder around to help it become more organized

  14. Functionality to change the standard drag option from Libraries to "place copy"

    I would like to receive an option to change the default drag and drop functionality to "Place copy" instead of "Place linked". This will save a lot of time and hassle.

  15. Unlink assets from Creative Libraries

    After I drop an asset from the library in a document, I want to be able to unlink it, and remove dependencies to an external library.
    In my case, I'm using library to build products that I'm selling, so when I export the products for sale, I need to remove the dependencies to these libraries.

    Any designer who sell his products, or share with people external to a team, would have the same need.

    We need to keep the flexibility of using a library (to update changes through multiple documents), but we need to make these documents self sufficient.

  18. CC subfolders not visible when opening files

    Currently if you organise AI. iles into project folders within your local CC folder, these subfolders aren't visible when opening in AI. Libraries offers the ability to categorise assets / files into project folders that are visible making it super easy to find specific files. I know there is a search feature but, with hundreds of assets, being able to have multi level folder structure visible when opening AI files from local CC folder would be awesome.

  19. Support for Layers in CC Libraries

    Dragging a graphic into Libraries and then using it in After effects is great BUT if when you dragged it into AE the named layers remained in tact it would be very useful.

    Also nested Illustrator files (in an illustrator document) could open up in after effects as comps that you drill into to access layers. It would save a lot of set up time. Thanks :-)
