  1. Width tool feature

    Hi

    As you can see from the file the split in the lower right corner is much bigger than the rest. And I was told that that is because AI treats the starting point of an object different. This makes it difficult to make symmetrict shapes without a lot of extra work.

    Therefor I was hoping this was something You could do something about in a future update

    with best regards

  2. Allow calligraphic strokes for default fill/stroke

    I regularly use a calligraphic stroke in my work. It would be good if a calligraphic stroke could be applied to the default fill/stroke settings via the Graphic Styles panel. This would save a lot of time in my daily workflow.

  4. appearance fill shape options rectangle - set percentage also (instead of points)

    Hi! In Appearance fill "shape options" where one can set background rectangle. It would be good if you could set percentage values and not only points. Because it limits the use. Then the look depend on how big your artwork is. It is a difference to have 10 point margin to a square 100 point rectangle compared to 1000 point rectangle. So please add that possibility. Thanks!

  6. Opening Last opened/recent documents

    Problems opening Last opened/recent documents in Adobe Illustrator

    I teach Adobe Illustrator to around 60 16 year olds.
    When they first open the program & either double click on the image of their last document it often won't open. In fact it often opens another recent file, but not the one they actually have clicked on. The only way round I have found to get up their work is to >window & turn Application Frame off? This is far from ideal & I don't understand why it's suddenly started happening......
    As you can imagine the 16 year olds find this…

  8. Illustrator CC 2019 (oct) NOT as default program for file extension .doc

    Just upgraded to Creative Cloud 4.7.0.400, from 24.09.2018 on Windows 8.

    Weirdly my E-Mail client suddenly opens .doc-files in Illustrator CC. I checked Windows 8's default program setting for file extension .doc ... it's still set to "Word". The E-Mail client (Opera Mail) is pretty slim and itself has no way of setting file extension behaviours - it's depending on the systems settings.

    The Bridge's file extension dialog in Bridge settings does not list .DOC files, so it's not set to illustrator there either.

    However if i go into windows file extension settings again, highlight .doc and click "edit program"…

    ADOBE!! I have a request. Would you consider creating a T-shirt making app for Illustrator? It would be great to be able to design your layout, take a look at your sample, then send to a printer to print! It's a thought 😀

  11. Ability to use separate graphic styles on strokes versus fills

    the title basically says it all.

    i would like to apply a graphic style to an object's stroke, and apply a separate graphic style, or more likely no style to that object's fill. this way i can alter the stroke of many objects at once, without altering their fill color.

    typically i have illustrations with 100s of groups each consisting of 100s of faces with the same stroke style, but different fill colors. in the course of design, i need to tweak the stroke color and weight to get the right look, but it's extremely tedious to have to click…

  13. WHY ARE YOUR COLOR MODE SETTINGS SEPARATE BUT CALLED THE SAME?

    SO YEAH, THERE IS A SEPARATE COLOR MODE IN THE DOCUMENT COLOR MODE.....SEPARATE AND DIFFERENT FROM THE COLOR MODE IN THE COLOR WINDOW.

    WHAT PURPOSE THIS DESIGN CHOICE WOULD SERVE, IS BEYOND ME.

    WHAT DOES THAT ACTUALLY DO? WHY WHY WHY WOULD ADOBE MAKE IT SO CHANGING YOUR DOCUMENT COLOR MODE IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FUNCTION THEN CHANGING THE COLOR MODE IN THE "COLOR," WINDOW? WHAT PURPOSE DOES THAT SERVE? WHY DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? IT JUST MAKES ME WANT TO TEAR MY EARS OFF AND POKE MY OWN EYES OUT.

    CAN SOMEONE PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.....FOR THE…

  15. Corrupted files

    I made numerous Adobe Illustrator files (featuring line drawings of clothing) that got corrupted. I had spent a few hours creating my drawings with the Adobe Illustrator software (saving copies along the way) but when I went to open the files to continue working on them they had all corrupted; leaving me with blank documents only showing a rectangular selection box. (Please find two examples attached.)
    Are you able to fix this and/or tell me how to retrieve my files?
    Thank you.

  17. Let an application be associated with its files

    Let an Application take control of its files at button press. After latest update Acrobat took over for AI files and it'd be nice to just press a button and fix it in Windows 10.

    Currently manually trying to and Acrobat is fighting it.

  18. Crash Report dialogue does not accept email address with hyphen

    Crash Reporter does not comply to email format standards. My email address contains a hyphen (nils.clark-bernhard@macio.de). Crash Reporter does not accept this address. Inserting a hyphen-free email address allowed me to send a crash report.

    More information about allowed email formatting can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_address

  20. Edit overlapped objects

    Some times when you use illustrator to edit PDF obtained from Cad programs, you get overlapped lines. It will be a good idea to have some filters to edit overlapped elements.
