  1. 「別名で保存」時にファイル名が選択された状態にしてください

    macOS Monterey(12.0.1) / Illustlator 2022, Photoshop 2022
    にアップグレードしたところ「別名で保存」時にファイル名が選択された状態になっていないので都度カーソルでファイル名を選択しなければならなくなりました。
    以前のバージョンのように選択された状態ですぐ入力できるよう修正にしてほしいです。

  2. Restoring the CAD tree-view when importing DXF files.

    Before version 25.1, when importing DXF files created with a CAD software (Solid Edge), each part of an assembly was recognized by Illustrator (1 part = 1 layer).
    This is not the case anymore since version 25.1. The last version in which it works is version 25.0.1

  3. Share for review like Indesign

    This may be the wrong type of post but I'm looking for information/reassurance about Illustrator and Adobe as a whole and how there doesn't seem to be any consistency between apps.
    Although it has a couple of bugs (overwriting links of duplicated documents), share for review in Indesign is very good, it works well and the way it works makes sense.
    When my client gets the link, they can view it in vector (or high res), with the correct fonts, see all images (even if not embedded) and they can make comments that I can see in Indesign.
    However, when…

  4. Variable Data, or Variable Text Improvement

    Recently, my business has been doing a lot of acrylic construction tags for Electricians, and HVAC companies, and Illustrator is generally our "go to" software suite when developing files for our clients, but with the recent work that has been coming in to our company, we have begun to explore the variable data features in Illustrator, and have found this feature to be less than ideal, and is currently not a viable alternative to the way we have been doing things thusfar.

    Currently, it seems the variables that one would set up in a given design file are referenced, or…

  5. Share for Review Enabled for Illustrator

    Enable share for review with Illustrator. I can already see how this will help when working with clients for magazines in InDesign - so I can’t wait to see how I can use if with clients for Illustrator based projects.

    ESPECIALLY as a professor - this will make it much easier to provide feedback for students during remote teaching and learning this fall with COVID.

  6. 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…

  7. Save Preferences for "Export for Screens" / Add Custom Presets that store globally

    We need to add files and dimensions when exporting for screens every single time when working with a new document. Presets need to be stored globally across documents. If you could also store not just one file export setup but multiple user named presets, that would be awesome! Like different export lists, not just one. Illustrator does not remember my file list, sometimes yes, sometimes no. Its a mess. I often need to re-enter my list in other documents and often also in the same document (when appending the list). That is a total of 40 export files and dimensions…

  8. export for screens, select: none

    When I 'Export for Screens' and have loads of artboards I can select 'All' as a checkbox.
    It would be good to be able to select none - instead of clicking the dozen or more select boxes to un-select artboards.
    This would save heaps of time - its annoying not to have it.

  9. Illustrator auto save folder

    Hi Adobe team,

    I would like to request adobe illustrator to have an autosave folder feature like the other adobe programs: premiere, after effects and, etc. It will be a helpful feature when users for example do not save their work and use the autosave file. This way users will not need to re-do the work they have created.

    I really hope this feature gets implemented in the upcoming updates.

    Many thanks

  10. AutoCAD DWG support on Illustrator Silicon

    To import DWG (any version) into Apple Silicon Illustrator. The current version 25.3 is no longer compatible. This is a critical missing import ability.

  11. Please return the option to export .dxfs in R13/LT95 version

    Please return the option to export .dxfs in R13/LT95 version. This was removed in the 2021 versions of Illustrator and some users need this export option as it is critical in the design and workflow for people who vut and etch with cnc lasers.

    See this forum post please:

  13. File > Rename command

    If you saved your file with a typo and want to fix it or to change name in general, you have to save, close, go to the file manager, find the file, rename (and hope Ai has not it locked), open it back (and then have an invalid item in File > Recent).

    It would be so much easier to have a dedicated command for it.

  14. While exporting the TGA from .ai file, the user should be able to choose the 'User artboard' option. Curretly it is inactive for TGA.

    I wanted to export a TGA from .ai file but I want to keep only elements which are present in the artboard not which are out of the artboard.

    There is a 'User artboard' option to avoid unwanted elements outside the artboard but it is inactive for exporting TGA. Due to which after exports all the elements which are outside of artboard will also be exported.

    By making 'User artboard' option active for TGA will solve this issue

  15. Relative Links for Co-Working - Cloud Storage - Home Office

    Relative links are absolutely essential for collaborating on common projects in an agency.

    It's so annoying to work together on a project. When my collaborator starts an Illustrator file and I want to work on it, all links are broken, vice versa the same and the cycle never ends. Sometimes I don't even know what folder some linked files are stored in, so it's impossible to continue his work without his help!

    Everyone who works together on bigger projects has this problem, especially in times of home office.

    I figured the Creative Cloud wasn't just meant to be a backup…

  17. Export with Grid

    I tried to search for how to export a document with the grid visible and found some results in Google, but couldn't apply any of them. Over an hour chatting with a Help Agent, I was told it can't be done. Why wouldn't there be an option to export/print with the grid on?
    I've been learning how to do Floor Plans using Illustrator (since I already have Creative Cloud) and got reprimanded for handing in an assignment without a grid...imagine my frustration that it's not even an option AND that it took over an HOUR of chatting with someone to…

  18. Save as dialog selects file name including extension

    macOS 11.5.1 / Adobe Illustrator 25.3.1

    [on macOS] when saving files only the filename is selecetd, not the extension. It used to be fine with Adobe apps until some versions back suddenly the whole file name including extension is selected in the Save as dialog.

    Adding some text used to be easy. With a tap on the right arrow key the cursor moved between de file name and the extension. When I do this now the cursor is placed after the extension so I have to use the mouse or left arrow key to move the cursor 3-4 positions back.…

  20. Save all modified files simultaneously

    I would like to see the option for "Save All..." added to the file menu. There are many times when I am preflighting and prepping multiple open files related to the same project. Instead of cycling through to each file and saving, I would like to have the ability to save all modified files at the same time.
