  1. Automated/AI-powered file names in Asset Export

    Asset Export needs more options to automate and/or use variables. Designers often need to export large groups of files (e.g. variations of a logo in multiple colours and sizes, with/without a claim or other element) which then have to be tediously and manually renamed and sorted to reflect things like size, color.
    It would be great if there were more option to automate the output by adding variables such as dimensions custom text fields, names of swatches used, etc This could even be an area where the use of AI might be useful to automatically detect the content and create…

  3. Add a way to resize an exported image with Export As method to a specific size, like Save for Web can

    In the old "Save for Web" function (please keep it!) it was possible to resize "on the fly" the destination image (EG my file is 8000 px but I can save an exported version of 800 without opening and resizing afterwards)
    In the "Export as.." function none of this is possible.

  4. アートボードごとに、「スクリーン用に書き出す」際のファイル形式を設定、保存ができるようにしてほしい / Allow to set format per asset/artboard in Export for Screens

    現在の「スクリーン用に書き出す」は、この操作を行うたびにファイル形式を設定する必要があり、しかも全てのアートボードを同一のファイル形式でしか書き出せない。そしてファイル形式は書き出すたびに初期化されてしまう。これは不便である。

    これを、例えばアートボードオプションで、アートボードごとに書き出すファイル形式を設定し、その設定を保存できるようになれば大変便利になるはず。

  5. [Script HELP] Import file to artboards and flatten transparency

    Hi, I'm looking for a script that can IMPORT files (AI, PDF, EPS) by inserting these files, or multipage PDFs, onto multiple illustrator tables in a connected way.
    Then let me select eg. from table 1 to 5 (of 200) and apply a preset registered in the CONVERT TRANSPARENCY panel.

    Can someone help me?

  7. Export Oversampling

    Problem:
    - Often when exporting from AI at 1x scale the anti-aliasing quality is not optimal.
    - My current workaround is to export at a larger size and downsample in PS. I typically require 1x and 2x sizes, so I will export at 4x and then choose a resampling algorithm based on the artwork.

    Goal:
    - Imrpove the image quality of exported images from AI

    Proposed Solution:
    - Add ‘Oversampling’ as a per-scale export option, this could be done with the following parameters:
    - Oversampling [toggle] : on, off
    - Quality [combo] : 2x, 4x, 8x, etc.
    - Resample Mode…

  8. Version history to log a new version upon opening old file

    As of now, Version History deletes old versions after 30 days unless it was marked manually, which is fine and makes sense. However, as you open a more-than-30-days-old file that was not marked and you modify it beyond your History limit, there is no way you can revert back to the original file, at least if you have the autosave enabled, which is to be expected.

    I therefore suggest to automatically log a version as you open a file that didn't contain any (more than 30 days old...)

  9. make it easier to export

    make it easier to export things...

    1 - add convert text to outlines as a check box when exporting pdfs...

    2 - add convert lines to outlines to shapes when exporting svg...

    3 - have a check box to expand compound shapes when exporting svg

    make it easier to cut copy and paste from figma to illustrator and vice versa.

  10. 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

  11. ArialMT in Save and Save As

    Now the Save and Save As are creating an SVG with
    .st0{font-family:'ArialMT';}
    A better solution is
    .st0{font-family:'ArialMT',’Arial’;}

    Like it is in the export for screens

  12. Share to Review: Attach files to comments, Zoom more than 100%

    Attach file to comment. Typically the client add in quick sketches, reference images, new logo files and so on and it would be super helpful if they could attach those files to the comment in review mode to avoid having to still use e-mail or similar services to get quick assets between us and them.

    Deeper zoom function: The pdf can only be zoomed in to 100% of the artboard setting, so some details can't be seen. Infinite zoom would be ideal.

  14. Give us true list view for exporting artboards

    I would like an actual list view where artboards are in a list, show native dimensions, and any other meta that makes sense. Current multi column view truncates text and thumbnail size can't be scaled.

  15. Need "Save a Copy" suffix checkbox option, like "Export As"

    Much like the recent fix to the "Export As" dialog box which added a filename 'Suffix' checkbox option when saving an image or images, would it be possible to also get a Suffix checkbox option added to the "Save a Copy" dialog box? When I need to generate a PDF using Save a Copy (my go-to method, less cumbersome than Print>PDF) which is several times per day, I don't want "copy" added to the filename and I have to remove it every single time before saving. Thanks.

    "Export As" filename suffix threads referenced:

  16. Share for Review wish list

    This function is long overdue and I am loving it. However, as someone who uses it multiple times a day, every day, I think there are a couple of things I think could make it better.
    1. The ability to group files together in the same link.
    I'm not a fan of "writing over" an existing file so that I can click on "update content". That is ok for small changes, but when the client is asking for significant updates/changes, I prefer to save a new file named "rev 1" or something similar. This then requires me to get a…

  17. Able to edit class prefix at export SVG (st0,st1...)

    This issue is very common when you import to html two or more svg files and the last svg overwrites the class of the previous svg inserted, due that uses same name of class.

    The solve is able to edit a prefix on export options window, that can edit for each file to set an unique prefix to get e.g.: st0, st1 and foo0, foo1 in each.

  18. 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.

  19. 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」
