  1. Add 'Flatten image' option to TIFF Export options

    Every TIFF I export form AI has one layer inside, even when image is completely opaque. This bloats TIFF twice in size, and there is no option to NOT write alpha. I have to batch all my TIFFs to correct it.
    Please, just add 'Flatten image' option to Export (you can set it unchecked by default to keep compatibility) that will convert layer to plain white background.

  2. Import later versions of dwg

    I would love to see an update so that you can import later versions of dwg files than AutoCad 2007. Most of our clients are working in later versions so it has become a big problem for us not being able to import these files into Illustrator.

  4. [BUG] xmpMM:DocumentID isn't unique at creation stage

    When you create new documents, they all share the same XMP documentID value while you would expect it's unique for every single new document.
    Saving the document solves the issue but it means one can't rely on documentID uniqueness while the document isn't saved.
    It needs to be unique at the creation stage already.

    Moving as a feature request. We generate an unique value only on file save. When you create a file it inherits all the attributes of the preset it uses. This is the reason you see the same uuid each time you create the document,

  5. Stop truncating filenames in Recent files

    AI truncates names of my files in Open Recent Files menu.
    Why?!
    Some of my files differ only in that truncated parts. I have to guess and remember.
    Please, give me an option to set limit myself (in Prefs file or Dialogue) or remove limit completely.

    I am happy to share that we have started working on it and plan to release it soon. 


    We plan to increase the character limit to 100. Beyond that, the filename will start truncating from the middle. I hope this works for all of you. Let us know what you think.


    Thanks,

  7. Export Multiple PDF Presets (at the same time!) in "Export for Screens" Menu

    Export Multiple PDF Presets (at the same time!) in "Export for Screens" Menu

    At our design and print shop, when exporting projects, we use a number of PDF (and image) presets to create print ready files, proofs, and web files.

    The Export for Screens feature will not allow us to export multiple PDF Presets (i.e. export print ready PDFs at the same time as smallest file size PDFs).

    Asset export has a feature to create folders on scale factors. The suffix that you are expecting as part of the foldername is not built. I am moving this as a feature request.

  10. Saving document should not kick you out of isolation mode

    Sometimes I work deep inside some nested object and feel strong urge to save document. When I do it, AI quits isolation mode and I have to go 10 levels in again to continue my work. That's rude.

    Please make AI respect my isolation tunneling when saving.

  11. Please provide ability to embed color profiles when exporting artwork to PNG format

    When exporting to JPG format there is option to select color profile and an option to embed the chosen color profile in file. There is no such support for PNG files and I find many times I am asked for a transparent PNG file for print work and am unable to embed color profile.

  12. Return / make optional ability to indicate subfolders in artboard name / path

    In previous versions it was possible to make name of artboard as "folder/subfolder/artboardname" and while export it would reproduce whole hierarchy of subfolders.
    It was super nice for organizing assets.
    Now it saves file in base directory and replaces "/" with "-".
    Maybe we can put this option to settings so that people may continue to use it.

  13. Set class info for SVG

    You can set the name of a path that becomes an id in the svg export.
    If you are programming in javascript to animate items in the svg, you need the id, but also classes. This would mean we could manipulate many different objects in one command.
    What we need is to set a list of classes (in the Properties window, probably). So if you set the list to orangeStyle, dark, tobeResized (probably with a + sign to add another class) and the svg output will have class="orangeStyle, dark, tobeResized" inside.

  15. Choose which version of PDF when saving an Illustrator file as .ai with PDF compatibility.

    When saving an Illustrator file with PDF compatibility, the default version of Acrobat is 5, (PDF Version 1.4) which creates issues with transparencies, when placing that .ai file into another .ai file for layout.
    I would like to be able to choose which version of Acrobat and PDF to be compatible with when saving an .ai file with PDF compatibility.

  17. Correctly include vector objects from previous Illustrator version files

    A customer file created in CC 15 MAC and (according to tech support) using a CS/3 template does not open properly in CC 18. a group of objects appear as a missing linked file rather that the actual objects. However CS/5 opens the file and placed the vector objects inside a clip mask properly, allowing access to the vector path information. Why would CC18 not have the same capability? Worse, why would it confuse the issue stating a linked file is missing? The vector info is obviously in the file (since it appears in CS/3 and CS/5, get that info…

  18. Asset Export - Filename field is too short

    I need the filename field to be longer in the Asset Export panel. There's not enough room for clientnamedepartmentnameclr_logo naming schemes.

  19. Add a CLOSE ALL menu command

    Adding a CLOSE ALL menu command, to mirror the one in Photoshop, would be very useful - complete with the "apply to all" check box which Photoshop offers. That way, I can easily close and save 5/10/15/20 open documents with two clicks.

  20. Exporting SVG icons to use for web overrides classnames colours get all messed up

    When you have multiple icons exported in SVG to use for web, once its introduced in the code their classnames get overridden and the colours get messed up of all icons.

    Our programmers are having to open each icon in text editor Atom/Sublime and change the name of the class names for a different and unique name to avoid overriding between files. It's quite frustrating and time consuming for them.

    Need More Info  ·  Dirk Schulze responded

    Hi Guillermina,

    File > Export > Export As provides an option to create unique class names and IDs to avoid clashes when merging different SVG files into one document. In the SVG options panel select “Unique” under “Object IDs”.

    Does this address your issue?

    Greetings,
    Dirk
