  1. Toggle Off Large Canvas Scaling when Saving as PDF

    Any artboards created larger than 227 x 227 inches are changed to a large canvas setting, which adds a scale factor to the canvas. So Illustrator will say a document that is 300 x 300 is actually 30 x 30 and just scaled by 1/10 of the size. This setting causes issues with my printer software where it reads it as a 30 x 30 and not the true size, it is disregarding the scale factor. I have to take these files and chop them up into smaller panels to print them. When I chop them up it is still…

  2. Is there a way to change the state of the page information line when exporting from Illustrator to a PDF?

    Is there a way to change the state of the page information line when exporting from Illustrator to a PDF.
    We need it closer to the bleed box (or right on it) and much further to the left.
    We need it closer to the bleed frame (or right on it) and much further to the left.
    I can't find anything in Illustrator's settings (of course). This will probably be defined in some file. I would like to edit this file with an editor to adapt it to our needs. Or is that perhaps possible via a script?

    The background is…

  3. Copy/paste vector: Figma → Illustrator

    Can we be able to paste vectors from Figma, please?

    In this other post you already made it possible to copy/paste from Illustrator to Figma, could we please have the whole workflow instead of only half of it?

  6. Auto opening a layered illustrator file in photoshop as layered smart objects.

    I create my original illustration files in vector format and in layers in Adobe Illustrator. I then copy each layer to its own artboard and save off an Ai file with the multiple layers converted to artboards, I then manually place these artboards as individual linked smart layers in Photoshop to ensure a non-destructive and combined Vector/Bitmap workflow/solution between Ai and PS.

    This is a LOT of manual work each time, Photoshop SHOULD be able to open a simple and layered Illustrator file automatically like this in this non-destructive manner.

    Saving off as a layered PSD file from Ai rasterises…

  7. Convert gradient properly on SVG instead of rasterizing when saving file as SVG Tiny 1.2

    Currently, when you try to save an SVG containing gradients with SVG 1.2 Tiny profile, Illustrator rasterizes the gradient and embeds the rasterized image instead of properly converting it as a pure vector information. This reduces the qualify of the saved image a lot and it's no longer scalable with even further quality reduction.

    SVG 1.2 Tiny specification supports gradients and so it would be really helpful if Illustrator kept the vector information from gradient. This is also necessary for BIMI logos (https://bimigroup.org/) as it doesn't support images/links in the SVG.

  8. Please restore the DXF import capabilities as it behaved in previous versions up to V25.0.1

    In version 25.0.1 and prior, the DXF import command worked, now it does not. Please restore this functionality. Thanks.

  9. Ability to rotate an image 90 degrees when exported for screens

    Having the ability to rotate an image 90 degrees when exported for screens would save a step when saving some art for the web.

    Some artwork with text is saved built so the type is horizontal for ease of typing/reading. Current exports require the art to be built and then rotated 90 degrees in Photoshop.

    The ability to rotate saves a step.
    It is a small nice improvement for Illustrator.

  10. Content Credentials (Beta) arriving for Illustrator ... and general concerns about Content Provenance / Attribution

    As Adobe are a leading player in the CAI initiative, are they rolling out 'Content Credentials' functionality to the other creation tools in the suite?
    Also - related to this - why do admin staff on here ask people to upload .AI files as bug fix evidence without conversations about risks of jeopardising Provenance and Attribution?

  12. export for screens - file name as prefix option

    Add a checkbox to allow the current file name to be used as the prefix in the export for screens dialogue, similar to the functionality in InDesign.

    Currently you need to manually copy/paste the filename into the prefix box.

    Also if the prefix box could be made larger that would be great - it only has room for approx. 10 characters at the moment, and naming conventions mean that our filenames are often much longer than that.

    Cheers!

  13. 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.

  14. 「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。

  15. Document unit preferences saved within AI file (type, dimensions, outline).

    When working simulteaneously on artworks for web & print - you have to switch now units each time switching documents.
    Often when preparing artwork for different outputs/purposes.
    Usually/often (always?) unit preferences are DOCUMENT SPECIFIC.

  16. XMP Meta Data、MM:Historyの機能改善

    現在、IllustratorではXMPメタデータ上のHistoryの記述が最大で2個となっていて、初回保存時に1つ目、別名で保存時に2つ目が記述され、以降、別名で保存によるファイル派生が生じた時に2つ目のHistoryが更新される仕様になっています。
    Photoshopでは、このHistoryの項目に保存履歴だけではなくconvertやderived等の主要な編集イベントの情報も記述されます。InDesignにおいても保存イベントは詳細に記述され履歴の確認が可能になっています。
    Illustratorにおいても、もう少し細かく履歴情報の記述を行っていただきたい。

    以下に各サンプルを挙げておきます。

  17. 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

  18. Add the "are you sure" when clicking "no" to "Save changes to document before closing" on an unsaved document

    My fingers are so fast that I will quickly click no on the saving option and I didn't mean to. Can you add an additional button after clicking "no". For example "are you sure you want to lose the work that is posted here" that way we have the 10 seconds to remember that we actually wanted to save this document instead of accidentally deleting it. It doesn't happen all the time but it usually happens on documents I have been working on for hours. I've lost so much work because my hands work faster than my brain.

  20. Automatic Saves and Back Ups

    Softwares like Ableton, particularly Ableton, provide an automatic save feature, multiple back ups, as well as allow you to restore your work if your software crashes. Additionally, you can "Collect All and Save" and the program collects all the project files and organizes them within the project folder where you will never lose them as long as you have the folder and no longer have the issue of missing files. I believe that this system should be adopted by Adobe as this would save countless hours and lost progress for its users. Thank you.
