  1. Paramétrage des traits de coupe

    Avoir la possibilité de régler les traits de coupe sur 3 paramètres :
    - La distance du plan de travail
    - la longueur des traits de coupe
    - la graisse des traits de coupe.
    Aujourd'hui, ils occupent une taille de 2cm soit une augmentation de la largeur et de la longueur de 4cm. Pour de l'impression grand format sur adhésif, cela fin par faire une surface non négligeable.
    Idem pour des impositions sur des documents A4 ou^l'on perd facilement une occurence en largeur et en hauteur.
    Au cas où les traits de coupes seraient normé pour l'imprimerie, il est toujours…

  3. Clip to Artboard [similar to Figma/XD]

    Can we please get a "Clip to artboard" Option in Illustrator, acting similar to the one to be found in XD or Figma? This would help a lot when working with multiple style frame inside one document.

  4. Let Artboard/Fit to Selected Art work for Selected Guides too

    When working on patterns, I often create a rectangle converted to a guide for the tile size.
    Unfortunately Fit to Selected Art does not recognise a guide to fit to.
    So I need to first release the Guide, then apply Fit to Selected art, and then make the Guide again.

  5. Option to assign chosen profile selection to all open documents in Missing Profile box

    When opening a project, I frequently have to choose either not to colour manage or I have to assign a particular profile to the document due to working with a number of different print houses. As I can sometimes open 10-20 documents at a time to edit them, would it be possible to assign the designated choice to all open documents at the same time, i.e., have a selection box you can tick to 'Apply selected profile option to all open projects'?

    Currently it is really laborious choosing the profile for each individual file as it opens.

  6. Duplicate Artboard should place the new artboard inside the canvas if possible

    "Duplicate Artboard" always tries to place the new artboard to the right of the selected artboard which often makes it fall outside of the canvas, failing with the error " Cannot create artboard outside the canvas. Please rearrange and try again." "New Artboard" does not have this problem. Please have duplicate artboard use new artboard's placement logic.

  8. Liquid Page Layout (Artboards)

    I would love a "liquid Layout" feature like InDesign has for more easily converting artwork and pages sizes simultaneously.
    There are many times I create posters on a 11x17 artboard and need to easily reduce the art and page sizes to 5x7 for flyers.
    InDesign has had this feature for a long time and I feel it would definitely be useful to my workflow.

  9. Canvas Size Limit

    I know there is already a massive discussion around this topic, but I had an idea this morning. The "Large Artboard" that is now available as far as I can tell is not truly a new massive artboard. It's just doing 1:10 scale math for you automatically. I see underneath the hood when using my vinyl cutter for example. A file sent to the cutting software sees everything at 10% size. Another example is when copy/paste from large artboard to a normal board, it will come in at 10% size.
    Here's my suggestion: Instead of having a single large artboard…

  10. Safety

    Can you add a safety margin in the same way as there is the ability to add a bleed guide? Like it has in InDesign

  11. Go to last-viewed artboard navigation shortcut

    I would love to have a quick shortcut to jump to the last viewed/edited artboard. I often have to jump back and forth between artboards on large documents to compare items, and it would be great (!) to scroll to the place I need to compare, look at the comparison, and then have a single keystroke to jump back to where I just was previously, rather than scrolling all the way back.

  12. Learn to Rearrange artboards with coinciding or nested coordinates

    Illustrator will not rearrange artboards that are completely overlapping (that is, have the same dimensions and coordinates) and will ignore nested artboards, moving them along with their enclosing artboard.
    It should be able to detect complete copies and give an option to rearrange smaller nested ones.

  13. Artboard size no longer shows 4th decimal place

    You can create a document with 4 decimal places, but it will no longer show you that exact measurement in the toolbar unless you click the Artboard Options button (otherwise it is now rounded to the 3rd decimal place). Likely not an issue for most people, but this could cause confusion/issues in industries where small rounding issues can cause problems when repeating artwork. I'm fairly certain earlier versions of CC 2023 didn't have this issue, but I know for a fact this was not the behavior in CC 2022 or earlier.

  14. PDF Bookmarks named with the Artboard Titles

    Similar to this request for XD:
    https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/18995113-pdf-bookmarks-named-with-the-artboard-titles

    When exporting artboards to a PDF, the artboard title should be included in some way.

    I think this could be as simple as creating a bookmark for each artboard.

  15. Ability to change measurement type under "Art Board Options"

    When an artboard is selected, and ART BOARD OPTIONS menu is active, you can only see measurement in whatever type is already selected DOCUMENT SETUP - i.e. if you get a file that someone built under millimeters, but you work in pixels, inches etc, you have to close the OPTIONS and go back to DOCUMENT SETUP and start over. I have to check art board sizes dozens of times a day and I have to back up many times. A drop down menu under ARTBOARD OPTIONS to change measurement type would be helpful.

  16. Share only certain artboards for new feedback option

    Currently, I have several artboards in Illustrator and I want to share my designs for feedback but I only want to include certain artboards for feedback. Right now when I click share and generate a link it just automatically includes all artboards. It would be nice to have the option to select the artboards you want to include for review. See screenshot for a mockup.

  17. Hold Space to reposition an artboard while creating it

    When I create a rectangle, I can hold Space bar to reposition it to a place I want. For some reason this is not possible when I create new artboards, which are also rectangles in a way.

    Also this is not possible when I try to reposition a rectangular zone in Intertwine Edit mode, which I hope will be fixed soon too: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/45845641-a-rectangular-marquee-in-intertwine-edit-mode-can

  18. Preview of artboard before project starts

    Please allow for us to see a preview of the new project we are starting. When we set the dimensions or pick a preset dimensions, we can only see those grey outlined pictures. With this new feature, we would be able to see a "sample" of what our artboard is going to look like as a blank white canvas. It's basically a preview of the artboard before we officially start the project. Especially if we are typing in custom dimensions rather than choosing the set dimensions Adobe has already. Thank you guys :)

  19. Add an option to not zoom to the artboard at newly created files

    When you create a document in Ai, it first gets created and they Ai fits the artboard in window. For me, at Windows, it also happens with a noticeable delay, which sucks.
    But in the first place — why does it do it? I never asked for it, I want it to be at 100% and have it fitted only when the artboard is larger than my viewport, not smaller!
    I’d like to have at least a key value to edit somewhere in Prefs file to disable this auto-zooming.

  20. Create a guide trimmed to an artboard

    There is a almost unknown way to create guides limited to an artboards — you have to pick the Artboard Tool first, and then drag a guide out of rulers. The resulting guide will be limited to the artboard’s dbounds.

    However, we think about it somewhere in the middle of dragging a guide, using other tools... too late in a process!

    Can we get a modifier to hold while a guides is dragged out to toggle the global/local guide mode on the fly? Alt is taken to switch horizontal/vertical (and it’s cool), but Shift and Ctrl/Cmd are free and do…
