  4. When will it be possible that Adobe Illustrator to create and import objects of more than 32000 nodes?

    When will it be possible that Adobe Illustrator to create and import objects of more than 32000 nodes? Why is it still cannot (at the end of 2017)? It is a very big limitation for those of us who work in mapping projects (because the vector geometries are in need of a great graphic definition).

    An added problem is that even though we use specific plugins of cartography (Avenza MAPublisher, for example) like they work in Adobe Illustrator they suffer the same limitation and they do not suppose any alternative…

    By when a definitive solution?

  5. An ability to copy/paste appearance attributes / styles

    I would LOVE to be able to copy appearance attributes!
    It would be VERY helpful if I could copy the appearance of one item and paste to apply them to another, instead of having to do everything over again for each item.

  7. Save for Web

    The new and NOT IMPROVED Illustrator does not allow me to save gifs and jpegs for the web. I used this feature all time since I design web banners - and now it's gone! Thanks for nothing, Adobe!

    Hello,

    We have started working on the tech that allows us to enable the following:

    • Ability to convert the outlined/expanded text back to live text.
    • Ability to lock objects to a character/glyph of a live text, allowing users to change the text (properties) while the object stays locked into the character.

    As we work through the complexities of handling different font families, font size, and other font properties, we would love to meet with you and share our thinking around it and understand :

    • Your use cases and workflows that this feature will help you with.
    • What is most essential for you.
    • The workarounds that you currently use to achieve this.

    If you are interested, please pick a time slot that works for you using this link. https://calendly.com/meetai/60min?month=2023-01

  9. Make the new "Properties" panel optional.

    The idea of the properties panel is nice, but it should be customizable. For example, the four pathfinder tools that come up when more than one object is selected aren't the main four that I use, so it would be nice to be able to switch out the default four that pop up.

    It would also be nice if there were a way to not use the new properties panel, and be able to switch in the windows drop down menu to using the old properties panel that is in the top bar across the screen. I don't love the…

  10. Recent files list - right-click menu with "Open folder"

    In Illustrator (and also other Adobe apps): when the program is started but no document is opened there is a list with icons representing the recent opened documents. My suggestion: Add a right-click menu on those icons with an option to open the document's folder in Windows Explorer.

  12. Quick Look support for .ai files in MacOS

    Selecting a file in the MacOS Finder and then pressing spacebar to preview the file is one of the great features of the OS. It works with image files of many types as well as PDF files, etc. But not .ai files. Please build a Quick Look extension to add this support. Thanks.

  13. Cmd + H should hide Illustrator on Mac

    Yes, CMD-H should be standardized across all of your programs. And kindly take Freehand out of its vault, study its pen/curve tool(s), and make Illustrator's pen tool work as well as Freehand's did.

  14. Actions panel

    Everything is so tiny, and the actions panel is too. When you run an action you see all steps, and if you want to try another of your actions you have to scroll a mile to get there. It's very difficult to get an overview of the actions you have. So I would like to see the steps of the action in a separate window, so that you don't loose the overview of your actions. You shouldn't see all steps in the same list as the actions that you have. Also I would like to be able to have some…

  19. Chromebook compatibility

    Hello,

    My school is considering purchasing a laser cutter/engraver to be housed in the Library for all students to use, and I understand that we will also need to purchase software such as Adobe Illustrator. The problem is that many of our students use Chromebooks, which really don't have a hard drive. We're not in favor of just having 1 or 2 Windows machines sitting by the cutter/engraver, mostly because that limits usage. Is there any other option? Does Adobe offer a Chromebook-compatible software? Or, is there any way that a student could design something in another program, then import…

  20. 【要望】境界にジャギが発生するのを改善して欲しい

    CC2015から2017にアップデートしてから、
    Aiで作成したデータにpsdファイルをリンクしてサイズを縮小すると、
    pdf保存をした際やaiファイルをPsから直接開いた際、
    透明の境界にジャギが発生するようになりました。

    Aiでの作業中は特に境界が見えることはなく、あくまでそのファイルを
    pdf保存またはPsから直接開いた場合のみに限ってのことです。

    ※「書き出し」からpsd形式にした場合はジャギが発生しませんが、
     アンチエイリアスのかかり方が気に入らないためできればAiで
     完成させたデータをそのままPsで開きたいです。
    ※以前のバージョンでも縮小したリンクファイルのあるAiデータを
     pdf化するとファイルの境界にジャギが発生していましたが、
     pdfだけだったため作業に支障はありませんでした。

    psdファイルを原寸で作成して原寸でリンクすれば良いのですが、
    レイアウト段階では大きいサイズでリンクして最終的に使用するサイズに
    縮小することが多いので可能であれば以前のバージョンのように
    直接Psから開いてもジャギが発生しないプログラムにできないでしょうか。
    文章での説明だとわかりにくいため、サンプルを作成して添付しました。

    古いバージョンのようにpsdファイルにパスを作って透明部分をカットし、
    epsファイルに変換してリンクすればジャギは発生しませんでしたが、
    それだと操作性・効率が悪く非常に作業がしにくいです。

    今のところリンクファイルにPs側で少し光彩をかけて境界をぼかすと
    ジャギが発生しないことがわかったためそれで対応していますが、
    光彩をかけられないデザインの場合もあるため対処に困っています。

    自分で解決策が見つけられればと思い色々と検証してみましたが、
    効果的な方法を見つけることが出来なかったので、
    次回以降のアップデートで改善して頂けると大変ありがたいです。
    もしOS側の問題(Wondows8や10なら発生しない)のようでしたら
    その旨をアップデートの際ユーザーに送られるメールなどに
    記載して頂けると助かります。


    検証バージョン
    OS:Windows7
    Ps:Photoshop CC 2017

    Ai:Illustrator CC 2017
