  1. Security settings for PDF Authoring

    Even though I have a preset when saving my PDF from Illustrator, the security settings never save. Often I have to send out files to people who I must have files locked. But every time I save a pdf I have to type in the same password and change the settings under security. Please let the preset save security settings.

  2. Export Selected Artboards for Screens

    Instead of having to note all the Artboard ID numbers, it would be nice to select the Artboards (Artboard Tool) then Export Selected for Screens.

  3. 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.

  4. ( Export for Screens ) more file format support

    Add more file formats + CMYK ability to export for screens.

    Here's an example for a customer that wants multiple logos with multiple taglines for multiple usecases. (check attachment)

    Am i supposed to manually generate 200 files in the future?

    More formats gogogogogo

  5. Option to save "export-profiles" in the "save for screens"-dialogue.

    Can we please get the option to save "export-profiles" in the "save for screens"-dialogue. Its a major pain and a waste time rebuilding those for every purpose.

  6. データをEPS形式で保存する際に、上書き保存になるようにしてほしい

    今までは、作業データをEPS形式で保存する際に、指定した場所に同名のファイルがあれば上書き保存できていたが、現在は、指定したファイル名の末尾に「_01」等が勝手に付け加えられ、別名保存になってしまう。これまでの方法で上書き保存できるようにしてほしい。

  7. 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.

  8. Adjust Artboard to image

    When opening a pixel image in Ai (to add vector details), Ai does not set the Artboard size to the boundaries of the image. Would be nice when it does.

  10. When exporting the saving dialogue doesn't take you to the source location

    When exporting, the saving dialogue doesn't take you to the source location which used to be the case. It takes you to Downloads instead which is not convenient for file organization.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  15. Original illustration creation date

    It is imperative for copyrighting purposes that an original illustration creation date is saved somewhere in the metadata regardless of future tweaks to said illustration which are SAVED AS in the same file name, hence changing the origination date.

  16. Export with Grid

    I tried to search for how to export a document with the grid visible and found some results in Google, but couldn't apply any of them. Over an hour chatting with a Help Agent, I was told it can't be done. Why wouldn't there be an option to export/print with the grid on?
    I've been learning how to do Floor Plans using Illustrator (since I already have Creative Cloud) and got reprimanded for handing in an assignment without a grid...imagine my frustration that it's not even an option AND that it took over an HOUR of chatting with someone to…

  17. 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.

  18. For all Adobe apps, make a Save icon at the top.

    Make a Save icon at the top so that we could save our work often and quickly with a mouse click instead of interrupting the work flow to do a File Save or even Ctrl - S.

  19. 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…

  20. 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
