  1. The large print documents do not give the option of exporting the artwork to dxf or dwg format.

    Whenever I work on large print documents, I do not have the option to export it to dwg format. I have to re-size the artwork and the copy and paste it into a normal A4 size document and then export the artwork in dwg file. And after I open the file in cad, I have to re-size it again to actual scale.

    However when I export, I have an option to exporting the artwork in 1:100 or 1:500, but I don't have the habit of working with scales and it feels inconvenient.

  2. Can you add the option to make a multipage pdf from the variable dataset export? Needed for compatibility with printing software

    Currently when exporting vardatasets, you get a single page pdf per dataset.
    When making stickers some printing software cannot apply printing and contour cutting on multiple images.
    I would be nice if the datasets can export a multipage pdf, or if an action can be made that creates artboards from datasets instead of exporting.

  3. Share for Review extra functions

    Hi,

    I'm really thankful for this review function but there are a couple of things I would like to see in the future. Hopefully, some are already in progress!

    1. Ability to select which artboards to share

    2. Show the size of the artboard (I prepare 6 artboards at a go, clients do not know what size are they looking at)

    3. Have a pretty URL that does not look like... https://assets.adobe.com/id/urn:aaid:sc:AP:46b3c72e-e17c-42b7-2da9-08fc21a30b91

    4. A caption area for each artboard so that I can put down some notes directly on the Illustrator app.

    Thank you!

  4. Allow us to export PNGs with Transparent and White Background at same time with Export for Screens

    I often need to export PNG versions of the same asset with White Background and with Transparent Background.

    The way the Export for Screens work, doesn't allow this. You can set multiple export scales, but they all will use the same PNG settings.

    It should be able to select Different settings for all scales. Or at least different Backfgrounds ( white/tranparent)

    But individual settings for all scales would be better, as then we could have much more control.

  5. Save the Export Path to with Export for Screens Presets

    Please, SAVE the "Export To:" path with the Export Preset.

    I don't want to set my Export Path in Export for Screen every f*ing time I restart Illustrator.

    I was hoping that Export Presets would have fixed this annoyance, but it didn't help at all.

    It amazes me how impossible it seems for Adobe to get these simple things work like they should.

  6. It would be great to have more control of the .jpg compression settings in "Export for Screens"

    It would be great is more granular control of the .jpg compression settings. Right now we can only export at 100, 80, 50 and 20. We find that 60% compression is often the sweet spot between size and quality. Having a user adjustable slider or more presets would be great. It is another reason why we are still using the legacy export.

  7. 3Dオブジェクトの座標や回転を維持した書き出し

    座標や回転を維持して書き出せれば、3dを使ったモーションポスターなどの制作などにとても役立ちます。

  8. Menu bar item “Duplicate with New Document”

    The History panel menu has a highly useful feature called “New Document.” As it is versatile, it should be added as a menu item on the menu bar.

    Example:
    Menu bar “File > Duplicate with New Document”


    Japanese

    メニューバー項目「新規ドキュメントで複製」

    ヒストリーパネルのメニューには、「新規ドキュメント」という非常に便利な機能があります。この機能は汎用性が高いため、メニューバーのメニュー項目として追加するべきです。


    メニューバー「ファイル > 新規ドキュメントで複製」

  9. Add option in Preferences > File Handing to remove or “do not append” the word “copy” in the filename when saving a copy

    Please add an option in Preferences > File Handing to remove or “do not append” the word “copy” in the filename when saving a copy. This feature is not an option in Illustrator but it is a feature in Photoshop that saves a lot of time compared to manually removing it every time.

  10. Embed SBSAR 3D Material Into .AI File

    The ability to embed a 3D SBSAR material into an illustrator file so that other designers can open and use the same .ai file. Currently, the material is lost and greyed out.

    Especially if they are custom SBSAR materials made in Adobe Substance Sampler.

  11. Give the ability to export extra Spot colors in .PSD files (also implement the Mixed Inks feature)

    I think it's for Adobe to implement the ability to export files in .PSD and have those extra colors in separate channels (maybe in CMYK mode plus the extra spot colors translated to extra color channels).

    If it works well with PDF files why not with Photoshop files?

    It's a real pain to get a 5 colors file (CMYK + Pantone color) exported to Photoshop. PSD files have all the colors flattened for the exported mode option (RGB, CMYK).

    Also, it's time to think very serious about implement the Mixed Inks from Indesign into Illustrator and in the end the…

  12. Export JPG and PNG with with the option of including or excluding bleed

    It would be great to have the feature in the export window (in one of the two attached)

    The only way to remove the bleed is to remove document bleed temporarily or remove it manually in Photoshop.

    We remove bleed before we add the artwork to our catalogues

  13. Improved Layout of Illustrator Options

    Illustrator 2023 (v27)

    This is a proposal to improve the layout of the Illustrator option.

    Illustrator format files contain two different types of data: PGF and PDF data. Currently, Illustrator options have three settings: PGF only, PDF only, and common settings for both PGF and PDF. However, these settings are currently mixed together in the window, making it difficult for users to understand which setting they are operating on.

    To make Illustrator options more easily understandable, we propose organizing the layout and clearly distinguishing each setting. By grouping the setting items and labeling each group clearly, users will be able…

  14. 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…

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
