  1. Issue transferring dwg file to Temp folder

    Is there any possibility in Ai, when we export or run the script on the Ai file and we get only dwg file without that png (bitmap image) so that we can add only dwg file in Temp folder and it will get convert into .svg file.

  3. これは非常にユニークなアイデアです♪

    こんにちは。Adobe Illustratorの拡張子は「.ai」です。
    何とも愉快な拡張子じゃあないですか!!

    「.ai」??=AI=ai(人工知能??)のごとく、
    御社のAI機能の最先端をゆくアプリケーションに、
    大改革をしてみては如何でしょうか!?

    「著作権保護機能が完璧に達成された画像生成AI」アプリケーションでも
    良いですし、Adobe社の全てのアプリケーションが含まれるような、

    イーロン・マスク氏のような X アプリケーションのような考え方です。

    .aiの拡張子は、この先誰にも奪われませんし、世の中のクリエイターで、
    知らない人は殆どいないかと存じます。

    Adobe IllustratorとMacがなければ、私は今ここで、こういった発言を
    していなかった未来だと思いまして、

    突然頭の中で閃いた、ユニークなアイデアだけれども、お笑い的に言うと、
    そのまんまなんですが、何かしら、そういうすんごいアプリケーションに
    大改造したって、悪くないです。

    いや、むしろ、.aiこそが、人工知能の王者として相応しい!と
    後世の人に夢と希望あふれるようなスーパーアプリケーションに
    してもらいたいですねぇ。

    Adobe社の英知が結集した、スーパーアプリケーション、「Adobe AI」
    で、拡張子が,「.ai」でも文句なしです。

    画像生成AIの登場にて、この先、クリエイターのお仕事が、
    法律規制でも強化しない限りは難しいので、
    何かしらのそういった、未来志向への転換をそろそろ考えても悪くはない時代だと思いました。

    是非とも何かの参考にどうぞ。

  4. Share for Review with watermark

    While I like the Share for review feature, I would appreciate if there was an option to activate watermark.

    The benefits of watermarks are too numerous to list, but the most important is:

    Deterrent for Unauthorized Use: Watermarks act as a deterrent for individuals seeking to steal or misuse a designer's work for commercial or personal gain. This protection encourages respect for creative rights and discourages infringement.

  5. Optional thousand separator for graphs in y-axis

    Graphs in Illustrator are really useful, however, after copy-pasting data from Excel, the y-axis values all come out without thousand separators, like $1000000 - I then manually add thousand separators so that the value reads $1,000,000 - it would be great if in right-click > Graph Type > Value Axis, there was a check-box that read "Enable Thousand Separators". Easy :)

  6. Option to allow to group a single group, making it nested

    Sometimes we need to group a group. For example, for complex appearances, to nest graphics styles.
    But Illustrator does not allow that — and in most cases it’s a proper cautious behavior. But perhaps it can be toggled somewhere?

    So far we have two workarounds for this.
    1. Create a dummy object, select both it and the group you want to 'wrap', group them together, delete the dummy object.
    2. Use a script 'Add Group Anyway': https://onthehead.com/ais/group003/ (it also can pull children form different groups into a new one — which is a thing we want too).

  7. Share and Review for Illustrator (email notification designation)

    Hi Adobe team,

    I Co-own and Creative Direct at a small design agency of about 12 people. Myself and my design team are loving the Share and Review feature as it is saving us so much time in our presentation prep on client work. There is one thing though that would make our lives even better (and the life of our project manager). We would love for there to be a feature where you can designate where the notification emails go to when comments are made. Currently it goes to the person who generated the link (usually a designer), or…

  8. Illustrator 26.5.2 The new Lock object tool is terrible

    Go back to previous old version of the object lock. I do not like the gray border of a locked object. I cannot click through the object on other objects around or near the locked object. The OLD way of locking objects was better. It just sat there visually and did not affect neighboring objects.

  9. Line Chart - make it possible to start line on value axis

    I do often need the line to start on the value axis.
    At this moment, I can't do this using the Chart-Tool, effectivly making these type of charts impossible to create without messing up the Chart by manually changing the axis.

  10. Global Edit does not respect locked objects

    When launching global edit an error messages appears warning that there are more than 1000 objects in the document. There are only 800 objects unlocked.

    Locking objects used to work in order to work around the limit.

  11. Improve pattern editing mode's slow performance

    Pattern editing mode is notoriously slow. Using complex artwork and textures inside patterns causes pattern mode to hesitate when simply moving objects (even when displaying fewer copies). Because brushes are expanded in Pattern mode, textural brushes can't be used to create patterns without a lot of spinning and crashing. The feature hasn't been improved since it was released in CS6. The new Repeats feature doesn't make fill swatches, unfortunately, so it does not replace Pattern mode. If only we could create repeating art on the artboard and make fill swatches from it without the constraints of pattern mode.

  13. Atomic Design workflow between Illustrator, Figma/XD and Dreamweaver.

    Create a workflow between Illustrator, Figma/Adobe XD and Dreamweaver to easily implement Atomic Design systems. In Illustrator, the user should be able to create atoms, molecules, organisms, templates, and pages of a design system that can be opened in Figma/Adobe XD and Dreamweaver too, to speed up prototyping and development.

    This workflow should create CSS, classes etc from the Illustrator file on. The changes in Illustrator or Figma/XD should propagate to Illustrator and Dreamweaver.

    For example, if I design a main button in Illustrator, when I open the file in Figma/XD, it is already a button there too, with the…

  14. Add search to the History panel

    With 100 or more states showing in the panel, it would be helpful to have a search field. Type in Graphic styles, merge, drop shadow, or whatever the label is to find it. Not sure if it's possible to highlight all of the matches, like all states labeled graphic style - or if there would be an arrow button to let you page through all graphic style states it finds.

  15. Streamline and improve node/anchor editing.

    I have used CoreDraw for many years, but needed to move to Adobe for a new position. In Corel, you can manipulate nodes (anchor points) with the direct select tool. Everything you need to do - add points, remove points, move points along the path, curve the line, move the handles, etc. - can all be done with the direct select tool and the 2 mouse buttons. In Adobe, I have to keep switching between 3 different tools to do the same thing, and on top of that, not all nodes have handles! It's very frustrating and slow. Why does…

  17. Extend student discount to the length of their education. Anything less will send young creatives to competing software

    I love Adobe but as a student I can’t afford full price software prior to getting a job. Id love to enter the job market with a proficient and high level understanding of your creative suite. This lack of keeping student engaged with Adobe will push these young creatives to other software platforms. You loss next to nothing keeping students engages with Adobe product throughout their education and could gain life time users

  19. The default color space should be RGB.

    It is 2023, with the changes in printing technologies, Ai should have RGB as the default color space. I know that there are long time users who probably live in cmyk, but aren't best practices to work in RGB and then convert to cmyk for the particular job?

  20. Offline Patch download (msp file)

    I hate calling this a "new idea". We have offline systems running the "FRL" versions of Acrobat Std and Illustrator. There is a patch site (though hard to find) to download the offline msp updater for acrobat. I was just instructed via support chat that an offline patch doesn't exist for illustrator, and that I have to go back into my admin console and generate a new package installer to bring on. That's a lot of extra work for something as simple as patching.
