  1. Export artboards with the correct sequential order

    I am creating multiple page presentations and often I have to insert or move artboards. When I export the artboards to JPG or PNG they are named after their original artboard number which creates a lot of extra work for me.

    Illustrator uses the actual order of artboards in the Artboards panel for numbering, not the one you have on canvas (because artboards can be used not only as pages, but viewports, intersect and contain each other). To get the order you need, you should re-arrange the list manually in the panel.

    There is also a request for automating the matching inverted process: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/44105052-rearrange-artboards-on-canvas-accordingly-to-their

  2. Pixel Perfect - alignment with equal distribution e.g. Artboard alignment

    When exporting out artwork for app icons, the dimensions have to be precise. 256 x 257 isn't going to work downstream and you have to adjust and export out again - wasting time.

    If an art board bounds is not pixel perfect aligned the exported graphics can be one pixel out. So it becomes necessary to align both content and art boards.

    One could argue that if an art board has a defined integer dimension, then it should be guaranteed to be exactly that dimension. Which could be a bug.

    But why is it necessary to have an art board…

  4. Simple little change: Remove tiny shadow behind new artboard

    I've noticed this for years... whenever I create a new document in Illustrator--no matter the size or mode and without any bleed settings, the artboard has a tiny grey "drop shadow" behind the artboard. See ATTACHED. It does not affect art and never prints, but more times than I can count I've found myself zooming in and attempting to select/delete it, thinking I left some sort of unwanted element behind while I was working. Or I see the faint "border" and think my graphic elements aren't fully aligned to the page edge, when the actually are.

  5. Affichage/Ajuster à la largeur

    Je me trouve souvent à faire des mis en page sur Illustrator, mon logiciel fétiche de la suite adobe. Le zoom pour le plan travail est trop éloigné et de fois je dois faire deux fois zoom avant (Cmd "+" ) pour arriver sur un zoom sur la largeur du plan travail pour avoir un visuel idéal. Mais de fois c'est pas assez précis selon ou le pointeur est situé...

    Avoir une option dans la fenêtre Affichage pour zoomer sur la largeur du plain travail me serait de grande utilité, surtout avec un raccourci du style "⌘⇧0"

  6. flip artboard dimensions/orientation

    Many versions ago, there used to be a little arrow next to the artboard dimensions that would switch the width and height values. Meaning, if I had 8.5x11, I could hit the button to change the dimensions to 11x8.5. Where did it go?

  7. New artboard adjustable spacing

    When the New Artboard button in Control panel is clicked, an artboard is created next to the current one. The spacing between these is not tweakable.

    I work in metric units, on 10×10 millimeters grid. The space between artboards’ edges is 7.056mm. Yeah, I know, it’s 20 points, sure, but why should I care about points when units are millimeters? Why can’t I use a value that makes sense to me?

    Furthermore, it is dangerously close to 7 and looks like an integer until you check it.

    Please, allow to set a spacing manually in Artboard Options or elsewhere —…

  8. Zoom In On Navigator

    Zoom In On Navigator

    1. When I am using the navigator, I'd like to see how certain areas of my document will look when printed. I would like to be able to zoom in on the navigator. See attached file.
    2. This would help me greatly because I could see small changes and large changes, at a better scale, while not making the navigator take up too much space within your layout.

  11. Allow "Welcome to Illustrator" presets to be customized to actual user presets

    When the landing or launch page for Illustrator CC2021 opens, there is a box of presets under the line "Welcome to Illustrator.

    This system will not allow a drop or upload of either an AI nor JPG screenshot...the default presets are Postcard, Letter, Common, iPhone X, HDTV 1080p and "More Presets."

    In my case, I never use any one of those presets, so I have to click "Create New" or "More Presets," which are the same outcomes, then click my way through the various options to get to "Web Large."

    It would be nice if (a) the user could enhance…

  12. Raster Effects Resolution

    Currently the Raster Effects Resolution has only 4 options 300/150/72 & 36 ppi. At times, specially when working for CMYK prints, the designer needs a specific resolution which is currently not available. I would suggest that there should be Custom option to input the desired resolution.

  13. Adding Scale next to Units in Preferences

    I would like to be able to work with scales. For example sometimes I design large objects that don't fit the working area and using scales would be much easier to have a real idea of the dimensions of the object. I would like to be able to choose scales 1:5, 1:25, 1:50 and see the scaled dimension in "Properties/Transform" .

  14. Option to place the origin of the artboard at the center of the artboard

    I would like the option to place the origin of the artboard at the center of the artboard, so that objects can be placed at the center just by setting the position to zero please. This would also make it a lot easier to mirror object to other sides just by making their position negative or positive.

    Thanks in advance,
    Tim

  17. Create a Collapse All Layers Button

    Currently you can collapse (or expand) all sub containers by Alt key clicking on the little arrowheads on the left-hand side of the top level container items. It would be great if we had a button we could click that collapses (or expands) everything.

    Bonus points if this could be called by an action or script!

  18. Transform Coordinates - "Copy" and "Paste" buttons with specific order

    We need the possibility of copying the X/Y/Angle/W/H/Shear parameters when selecting a Source shape and paste them in the Transform panel when selecting the Destination shape.
    I recommend always angle is first when pasting, before X/Y/W/H/Shear.
    It is quite strange that since all of these CC iterations, this has never been covered. It is quite awqward to introduce numbers and many decimals by hand and not having a possibility to do it quickly.

    Thanks for the consideration!

  19. Pan and zoom on multiple artboard at once

    Hi,

    I am wondering if there is a way to locate and zoom all open windows at the same time in illustrator. Like in compare window in Lightroom. When you zoom and pan over the image, it helps you compare and spot the difference. I am in packaging and sometimes i am using the same diecut and artwork, but different product. i would love to pan and zoom over the artworks on multiple windows to compare and spot the difference.

  20. Aggiungere opzione margini interni e formati di lavoro per social network

    Sarebbe molto utile avere a disposizione i principali formati di lavoro di alcuni social network (post Instagram o Facebook) e tra le opzioni avanzate la possibilità di aggiungere i margini interni al documento.
