  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. Share for Review Notifications

    It would be amazing if a "notification" could be added to the "Share for Review" feature. I am having to update the link and also send an update email to my clients and collabs. Thank you!!

  6. Disable CC Libraries in Illustrator

    I would like the option to Disable the use of Libraries in Illustrator.

    I can close the panel but every time I create a new colour swatch the panel reappears. This isn't helpful for the way I work so I'm looking for a way to turn off this feature.

    As I am self employed and don't collaborate with others, all my colours are saved within the document they are relevant to which is why I would like to turn off this feature.

  7. small swatches in library

    Need the option to view smaller thumbnail size swatches/icons in Libraries. There's too much scrolling to reach the end of the palette. Thanks.

  8. CC cloud library "view by group" option when relink images...

    The addition of "view by group" option to organize assets has become paramount to manage great projects. But... I've faced the problem that when I want to relink any file from Cloud Libraries, the panel appears without any grouping or organization, needing to search through houndreds of individual asstes, manytimes sharing same name, and small enough to be undifferenciated each other.

  9. 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

    The ability of using a graphic from the CC libraries in a symbol would be a good idea.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Allow items in libraries to exist in multiple groups or allow items to be tagged and filtered by tag.

    At the moment, items in a CC Library can be ungrouped, or added to a single group. Often though (certainly the way I use them), items may belong to multiple groups. If for example I have an icon that represents the status of something but also has a person in, it could possibly exist in both the "people" and "statuses" groups.

    It would make cataloging items much easier especially in larger libraries.

    Either that or tagging, so each item could be tagged potentially multiple times so that I could then filter by tag?

    Cheers

  15. Nest library groups

    Groups are nice to have now in the library but some of us have very large libraries that we're using. Please consider adding the ability to nest library groups for better organization.

  16. 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?

  17. Mobile Creations

    In the 2015 version of Illustrator, when opening the app, there was a Mobile Creations section where I could open any of the drawings I had made on my iPad. While I was only able to open these if no other Illustrator files were currently open, it was at least easy to access tese items when needed.

    Currently, there isn't an option for this and I have to install the older version after mine updated automatically.

    It would be helpful to be able to access these mobile items easily from the landing page in Illustrator and from a customer Open…

  18. Detailed Cloud Libraries history and version control

    We need a way to see the edit history for items in a cloud library, including at a minimum when an asset was updated and who made the change... as well as the ability to restore a specific version.

  19. Invite to edit functionality

    On a previous version of Adobe Illustrator, anyone with access to the aic file could invite new members to the document. There has since been an update where only the owner of the file can share the file to new people. Is it possible to implement an 'admin' or 'manger' to each file. Therefore the owner of the document can provide admin rights to other colloborates of the document. Anyone with admin access could then share the aic file.

  20. I DON'T WANT Cloud Files.

    I am so sick and tired of having to wade through cloud ****, JUST TO OPEN, SAVE, or otherwise work with files.

    I don't need, or want, to save every file on Adobe's servers. It may make lots of sense for some, but not me. Stop making us jump through hoops to deal with local storage.
