  1. Export slices as HTML

    I have always used illustrator and photoshop to work in for websites. I then normally open in Dreamweaver and finish the job off. Why can I no longer use the slices I have created in illustrator to create my initial html template... I don't seem to be able to export any more.

  2. Stop the over Writing of SVG vs Illistrator File saves

    I work with a laser cutter which uses SVG files. Whenever I SaveAs "svg" the file/program I'm working on now turns into said svg save.

    Id like it to stay as it's Illustrator file self so once I'm done making edits I can just save as normal. Currently when ever I save as an SVG I have to go Save As again and overwrite/replace the Illustrator file I'm working on. I've ran into issues before where if I do this too many times it sort of corrupts the ability to save as a SVGs.

    Would like the feature where in…

  4. PNG options, add resolution 96dpi

    I believe we first had the resolutions 72, 150 and 300 in the PNG options dialog. Now I see 4, 18 and 36 have been added. A frequently used resolution that is missing is 96dpi. Please add.

  7. Allow me to change filename and file size dimensions with "Export as..." option

    I can no longer save my file with it's filename when exporting an artboard for client review. I would like to be able to have control over the naming of the file and the dimensions I export to (especially when building out billboard art files). If there was an option that showed file size and dimensions like in the previous "Save to Web" that would be optimal

  8. save

    Greetings,

    Just updating to 2021 software from CC2. Yes, I'm a dinosaur. One small but glaring difference is in previous versions, when I would Save, the Save screen would already have the file name highlighted so I could quickly type and rename it, or move the cursor. Now, I have to click on the file name field to make any changes. Small detail, but much more efficient previously. This goes for all of your products I assume, or certainly PS and INDD.

    Regards,
    Jason

  9. converting Freehand files to Illustrator

    Please Adobe, provide some way to convert Freehand files to Illustrator. You have completely abandoned a generation of designers and artists whose work is now inaccessible since you purchased Macromedia. You know those files will likely be revised in Illustrator...it can only fuel your subscriptions.

  10. Customize Export Formats

    I use only two export formats on a regular basis. It would be nice if could disable the formats I don't use. It is cumbersome to have to scroll through all the formats every time I use them. In older AI versions, each format was like a plug-in file that could be removed if not being used. It would also be nice if individual formats could be assigned keyboard shortcuts.

  11. Export for screens: poor JPG compression and custom JPG settings

    The compression and quality when "exporting for screens" in JPG is really bad compared to "Export for web".

    • You cannot customize the quality of the JPG
    • It embeds the color profile in the file, even if you have selected not to do so.

  12. Export for screens: remove suffix "-1" in the name

    It adds the suffix "-1" when exporting artboards, even if you have the field for "suffixes" empty.

  14. Export to Screens

    Please change the name Export to Screens. It seems like saving low Res files in RGB just for screens. Also need presets that can be used next time.

  15. Set default artboard name as file name

    Is it possible to have a setting in preferences to set the default artboard name as the file name?

    Generally I name all my artboards the "file nameCMYK" or "FilenamePantone" for exporting later and it's just a tedious extra step to have to go in and name EVERY artboard what I've already named the file instead of just tacking on a delineation.

  16. Multiple recover file management

    AI feature that allows to save multiple recover files separately.
    (The user decides how many copies of recovery to have, could be a single one or many).
    for example, in case I want three copies of recovery that saves separately every X minutes.
    recover1 saves every 30 minutes
    recover2 saves every 10 minutes
    recover3 saves every 2 minutes
    This would help to recover previous versions of the same file.

    Additonally an option to save backups:
    Save a copy every X minutes.
    For example: Save a copy every 60 minutes.
    This is not a recovery file, but a copy that is…

  17. Separate rasterization of text and non-text features in imported pdf

    Hello,
    would it be possible to implement a pdf import feature where text is maintained as vector text, but the other compartments are rasterized to make large files generated from Analysis software (e.g. heatmap) better to handle.
    Thank you
    Johannes

  18. Asset Export: Name assets after the layer they're on

    When adding objects to Asset Export, there should be an option to name the assets after the layer they're on. This would be particularly helpful when there are a large number of assets.

  19. SVG Import image X and Y positions are multiplied by 2

    If you open this SVG in Chrome, FF, Inkscape, etc, the rectangle and the 120.png image should be stacked on top of each other. However, in Illustrator CC (As of 09-23-2020) the image appears at 240x240 for the X/Y position instead of the defined 120x120. Appears to be this way only with the image tag. If you were to do a transformation matrix, it fixes the problem but still it should be imported properly into Illustrator.

  20. Save Color Profiles by Default

    By default, the color profiles I assign to the file should be saved.

    There have been several times I have assigned a color profile to my Illustrator file, saved it as a PDF, and the printed PDF were the wrong colors because Illustrator didn't include the assigned profile. I then had to reopen my file, manually tell Illustrator to include all color profiles when saving, and then reprint.

    It is ridiculous that the file doesn't save assigned profiles by default.
