  2. Idea

    Dear Adobe team, I just thought of a potentially awesome business idea, Adobe Instructor or Tutor program, where experts in various Adobe programs are hired to help users learn how to use Adobes programs of their choice! It can be a one-on-one experience that can benefit students or any other users wanting to improve their skills. What are your thoughts?
    Sincerely,
    An expectantly curious user

  3. Two desimal

    Can we please have option to use only two desimiles on units.
    We use millimetres and four desimile is waaaaaay too much. Two is just enought. Example what we have noiw 1200,0000 mm, 1200,00 is what we want.

  4. Chart enhancement request

    Most of the time I work on creating charts, sometimes which will be recurring charts. So my request is if we can embed spreadsheet just like in Indesign for tables, it would save time and also if we have option to add values on top of column chart and at the same time controlling alignment would be much helpful.

  5. 'Load Paragraph styles' does not work as expected

    In InDesign, if you 'Load Paragraph styles', any Paragraph styles with the same names get updated, and any text that has those paragraph styles applied change appearance.

    In Illustrator, this doesn't happen. It ignores the imported styles as it already has styles of that name. There is no 'import options' to able to change this behaviour.

  6. MAKE IT WORK!!

    If anyone can tell me why all my illustrator files become corrupted when i open them as in the attached i would be very happy. The problem is also found when trying to draw a simple ellipse or rectangle (it gets filled with jagged junk)! Is this a version problem?? Grrrrrr

  7. Distortions for Decurving warped art

    You know what I would like Illustrator to have? A way to plugin our actual grid warp information like a wonderful plugin from a few decades ago, called "CurveIt" that was from PCC Packflow (which was acquired by Artwork Systems, which is now "Esko"). It allowed us to plug in a negative value to de-curve using these fields. This would be very helpful for the packaging world where we have to decurve artwork back into a straightened format for redesigning.

  8. Find and Replace Text in Object Name in the Layers Panel

    Add the ability to perform a find and replace in the names of object. For example: If I have a seating chart with 10 rows, I want to be able to name each seat in the row such as "Row A - Seat 1", "Row A - Seat 2", etc...

    After I create one row then copy and paste it to create Row B, I need the ability to highlight that grouping and replace all the "A"s with "B"s and so forth with each row.

    See attachment as an example

  9. Illustrator home version

    I used Illustrator for years while I was a student but I'm no longer in school and didn't end up in graphic design. However, I still use illustrator for a number of personal projects. It doesn't make sense for me to pay for a subscription in order to use it a few times a year. Wouldn't it be possible to pull the existing coding for just the basics, like shapes, bezier, color, alignment and text and create a home version? For a flat fee, one-time purchase?

  10. A4 Size Error

    Since the latest update, the size of a new document is showing more digits after the comma, which results in the wrong size of the A4 format. Instead of 210 x 297 mm it shows 210.0016 x 297.0001 mm. Please fix this.

  11. Open file from windows explorer with Illustrator while minimised

    When in Windows 10 and I have a explorer window open from doing an import into another app Eg. InDesign and then while having the file list open then right clicking on a file to open with Illustrator I get a window too small error (if illustrator currently has been minimised in some way. It would be nice if this file open with illustrator could open the app window bigger so that it could display the file for editing.

  12. Show linked files from Illustrator files in Bridge

    It works for Photoshop and InDesign files, why not for Illustrator ones? All of them are built on the XMP platform.

  13. File versioning...

    This would probably be quite an undertaking to add, but it would be awesome if you could add versioning to AI files - the ability to save "states" or different versions of a file, using diff internally to minimize file size.

  15. please add extended wordcount

    I need to count the number of words in a complicated diagram with a lot of text boxes.

    Grant proposals require a maximum number of words and they also count the number of words in graphs and illustrations. So please just tell me how many words are in a document so I don't have to select and copy paste hundreds of words out of textboxes into a wordcounter (or Indesign). That would be great in the future. This is tw also not possible in Indesign because you need to select the text to get a count, whereas I need to…

  16. Stop censoring the term "M.a.g.i.c W.a.n.d" to **********

    Trying to search for feature requests related to the ********** tool (M.a.g.i.c. W.a.n.d.), reveals that the Adobe uservoice site is censoring the term. Either your moderators are 12yo boys giggling at obscure euphemisms, or you're so reluctant to alter the functionality of the MW tool that you're purposely obscuring all attempts to garner support for any feature requests.

  20. Converting CAD into Illustrator

    Where I work, we often have to open CAD files into the Illustrator program. We would like to be able to use the existing lines that are presented in a CAD drawing, but when we open them, they are always in little "line segments," rather than full, complete Illustrator lines.

    The issue with this is that it slows down the computer, and we are ultimately unable to use the CAD file. Nothing converts into actual "shapes" that we can use, so we end up flattening the image and having to draw over it from scratch to get the image we…
