  1. Add Color Mode "BITMAP" to TIFF Options in FILE->EXPORT->EXPORT AS

    Add Color Mode "BITMAP" to TIFF Options in FILE->EXPORT->EXPORT AS

    I regularly export high resolution ( 1440 dpi ) black and white tiff images from illustrator. Right now they must be exported as grayscale and then I have to open them in photoshop and convert them to 1 bit images and resave.

  2. 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。

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.)

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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"…

  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!

  13. Do not include objects outside artboard when exporting to jpg or png

    When I export Illustrator files to jpg or png, it includes all shapes and objects sitting outside my artboard area. This is impractical, especially when working on a range of concepts and you just want to send the work to the client that is on the artboards and not all the working files sitting outside the artboard area.

  14. .obj asset file multiple group/layer hierarchy

    It’s very cool that you can export 3d models as obj - when I try to import the obj file Into blender, the group objects become scattered and lose there positioning that I have created - please make it so that when I import the file all of the objects are together / grouped as I intended and not scattered - great job on the new update 👍🏻

  16. Add Export JPG/PNG option to Package Feature

    Please add an "Export As..." option the Package feature settings so we can export JPG or PNG files in the packaged file folder. This would be immensely helpful! Thanks

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. SVG scalable vector export option for use in Microsoft applications

    Please include an .svg format without code or mobile device use that will hold clipping, gradients, etc. to use as scalable vector artwork to be placed in MSO applications. This was not an issue in previous versions of Illustrator.

    I provide scalable vector artwork from my projects for my clients who work in Microsoft applications by placing "Picture from File" in a PowerPoint Catalog.

    When exporting, I get an error message: "Clipping will be lost on roundtrip to Tiny" when opening them back up and the artwork is distorted.

    I got better results with "Save a copy" however, I still…

  20. 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
