  1. Package/collect multiple illustrator files at once for sending to printers like "Art Files 3" does.

    We currently use Art Files 3 to package multiple ai files at once without having to individually open the illustrator files. With the new Illustrator 2023, Art Files 3 is no longer compatible and they also seem to be out of business. We send anywhere from 3-20 files at once on a regular basis. Working with multiple artboards in one file is not an option. We need to find a subsitute app or a solution that can package miltiple files, fonts and images (both embedded and linked) all at once like Art Files.. We can't use the AI package feature…

  2. Export GPU Quality Images

    Because of the difference between CPU and GPU preview, what you see is not what you get on export. Lines are weaker, and lack texture. I would like a feature similarly to overprint feature, to export GPU quality images. See post describing the issue: https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator-discussions/how-can-i-export-as-gpu-quality-not-cpu/td-p/10649456

  3. Extract missing links from Ai editable PDF when opening it in Illustrator

    PDF's saved from illustrator with 'preserve illustrator editing capabilities' do not embed any linked raster images in the Illustrator compatible component. When the PDF is opened in illustrator for editing, a message alerts that the links are missing, and low res images show when opened. The links are present in the PDF portion of the file and can be extracted manually and relinked. Might be a big ask, but it would be more ideal that Illustrator recognises the links are contained within the file, and is able to extract them automatically and embed them into the Illustrator component during opening.

  4. Reset numbering of assets in Asset Export panel

    Ability to reset the numbering of the Assets in the Export panel. Numbering is retained after several exports or adding/removing assests to the panel.
    It is possible to specify a starting number for numbering a group of assests.

  5. Stop adding -01 when there's only 1 artboard

    When saving with 'Use artboard', and overwriting a previous version, Ai asks whether it should overwrite. But then - it doesn't, since it adds the useless -01 after the filename.

    'Use artboard' is the way to just export the cropped art. When there is only one artboard, the -01 should not be added. And Ai should not warn that it is going to overwrite, when it isnt' (since we removed -1 manually in Finder).

    Please rework this behaviours, it is confusing, not helpfull, unlogical, time consuming and annoying.

  6. Option to disable auto-save for cloud documents

    クラウドドキュメントは使いたいが、ファイル編集時に自動保存したくないです。
    バージョン履歴はありますが30日しか保存できず、それ以前の
    ものは1世代であっても遡れず非常に不便です。どのタイミングで
    クラウド保存したいかコントロール可能にしてほしい。

  7. HDTV and other Film & Video Presets

    Please make presets without all the green stuff (see screenshot), and with a black background, since RGB is additive color mixing, which starts on black rather than on white. See how your After Effects fellows deal with video :-)

    I personally never need rulers and a center mark, since we exactly know where objects are, and where the center is by using Smart Guides and Transform.

    (But I am curious who likes all the green clutter you have to clear when starting a document based on these presets.)

  8. Better integration of User Templates

    Saving a User Template is not very convenient, since the Templates folder has not the right privileges initially. Why not create a folder in ~/Documents/Adobe in stead of a rather undescriptive folder named 'Cool Extras' in the Application folder?

  9. Please Support the File Info feature for SVG files

    When saving files in SVG format, we can't currently save File Info, such as copyright, file name etc. You can fill it in but it disappears when you open the file again. I was told but Adobe that the File Info only works with .ai files and they suggested I ask about it here.

    This is valuable to me because I can record copyright information with each SVG file.

  11. Window of "Save for web" > could you first load a small image?

    Window of "Save for web" >could you first load a small image (like 1000 X 1000) and then allow US to make it bigger if necessary? Load time is so long. It can take up to 2 minutes (with a good 2021 computer), if the software doesn't crash.

    Thank you!

  12. Share for review | When sharing a second document it took over the first documents link including all comments etc.

    The share feature is confusing when you have multiple Ai documents to share. I had one document already out to share and then I was working on another document and tried to share that one and somehow it took over the first share link and now all the comments are showing on another document. There needs to be an easier way to manage shared links and link the share button to the current tab/project that is open.

  14. Save for Web is disabled

    Open both files attached in any Ai version from 26.4.1 to 27, and try to File > Export > Save for Web (Legacy) for both.
    The command will be disabled for the 'bad' and enabled for 'good', although the only rectangle in both is the same.
    There is something wrong in the file structure then, but what?

    Also, the ExportOptionsPNG24 does nothing if a script with it gets run.

  15. Export for screens missing modern features in order to be useful for responsive images on the web in 2022

    It's 2022 and responsive images on the web are well supported across all browsers.

    Export for Screens is close to being a good tool for this, but missing out on a few smaller but critical needs for modern responsive web (by priority):
    1. Customize ppi in combination with width / height / scale Formats exports
    2. Support for moderne formats: webp, avif and near future jpegXL

    And not really a export only feature, but:
    3. Be able to override antialiasing export settings per layer so text and artwork can be applied different antialiasing during export

    Note: Typical answer to several…

  16. Export for screens missing slice selection feature from Save for Web

    Export for Screens seems to be missing a few things to be able to replace Save for Web (Legacy), which is a strong limitation since Export for screens have features Save for web doesn't: Support for exporting multiple scales / resolutions , which is a must in 2022 with responsive images on the web.

    One area it is lacking in is support for slices (by priority):
    1. Be able to export only a selected slice
    2. Be able to split up export for screens based on slices

  18. Get back the possibility to disable cloud-saving generally!

    Hi,
    A few days ago I was still able to save as usual and didn't have to choose whether I wanted to save on my computer or in the cloud first. It's really annoying that I have to do this now every time.
    It would be great if you could generally select/set this once, so that you don't have one more click!
    For example, I never save to the cloud.

    Best Florian

  19. Import SVG fails to load images correctly when linked via a use tag with the source provided in the defs

    The import SVG feature does not correctly load images when using a use tag that links to an image in the defs list.

    The issues with the import are the following:
    1. The image is incorrectly placed in the clipping group, despite one not being present in the svg.
    2. Two strange clipping path triangles are incorrectly added to the clipping group that completely hides the images.
    3. The art board is also incorrect and not placed around the design.

    I created a small svg example that has an image that is linked twice within the design.
    <svg version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"…

  20. We need for the "Export" dialogue boxes to either remember our last used settings or let us set our own defaults.

    I use "Export As" quite a bit, and I ALWAYS use the same setting I used before. But the "Export As" dialogue box always defaults to settings that I don't, and will probably never use. Please let us set our own defaults or at the least, remember our last used settings.
