  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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

  9. 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…

  14. File > Rename command

    If you saved your file with a typo and want to fix it or to change name in general, you have to save, close, go to the file manager, find the file, rename (and hope Ai has not it locked), open it back (and then have an invalid item in File > Recent).

    It would be so much easier to have a dedicated command for it.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Update link do not save

    The illustrator file contains a link to the Photoshop file.
    After changing the Photoshop file, the illustrator updates the link.
    But.
    If I open the illustrator file and update the link, then if I close the illustrator file, it does not offer to save the file itself. And, therefore, the updated link is not saved in the illustrator file.
    If this Illustrator file is linked somewhere, then the update is not visible in it.

    I suggest.

    Make it possible, after opening the file in illustrator and updating the link (without making changes to the file, just updating the link), so…
