  1. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE re-establish the the ability to drag over dimensions to change them!!!!

    I've been dragging over the top of dimensions to change them for years, I'm speaking about artboards specifically. Now with the latest release of IL I have to triple click or place a curser and either backspace or select over the top with my keyboard. It's REALLY ANNOYING and disruptive to my workflow. I know it's a simple thing, but when you've been working a certain way for years a slight change like that can cause all sorts of mistakes in projects.

  3. Ouvrir plusieurs documents à la fois

    Je me demande est ce qu’il serait possible de faire en sorte d’ouvrir plusieurs documents, au moins deux pour copier coller des objectes, calques, de l’un vers l’autre, sans avoir à passer par la galerie.

    Importation spéciale ? Aperçu ? Picture in picture ?

  5. The ability to rotate the entire workspace

    Quite often I'm designing something that will be printed and folded, requiring parts of the artwork to be oriented upside down.

    Have you ever tried to edit text or graphics while they're upside down? It's nearly impossible.

    Please add a feature to illustrator that allows us to rotate the entire workspace, including all of the artboards and layers as one.

  6. Cloud Dokument lässt sich nicht öffnen

    Ich habe gestern meine Datei zum ersten mal unter Cloud von Adobe gespeichert und nicht auf meinen PC und jetzt kann ich die Datei weder öffnen noch Herunterladen. Wenn ich es versuch zu öffnen steht entweder nichts dabei oder fehler beim öffnen und irgendwas ganz kleines was ich nicht lesen kann. Beim Herunterladen der Datei steht dran Fehler beim Herunterladen. Ich bedanke mich bei jeder Hilfe im Vorraus.
    Mit freundlichen Grüßen

  8. extend canvas dimension limit please.

    Can't work with bigger posters. Coreldraw handles it like a champ and illustrator makes me look bad on that field.

  9. Ability to temporarily flip canvas horizontally (mirror view) for design checking

    For illustrative purposes, it would be really handy to be able to temporarily flip the canvas horizontally as if in a mirrored reflection.

    You would instantly see slight imperfections in a design in this new angle that was not previously noticeable due to one's specific viewpoint.

    A lot of graphic programs do this to allow scrutiny from an alternate angle. InDesign and Photoshop do this already of course.

    Thank you!

  11. Automatically Export artboards as placed 300dpi jpgs

    When I am done with my vector work and am ready to go to print I have to export each artboard and then import each jpg and place into the artboards and adjust to fit.

    I propose you develop a setting where we can choose to rasterize and replace the vector work perfectly in the artboard with a 300dpi CMYK jpg (or settings to achieve a variety of options).

  12. Artboard auto-naming preferences, one-click artboard with size dialog

    I often have to make documents with many artboards for various ad and social image sizes. Currently, one has to make these artboards, then hand-name them.

    I'd love a preference that would set new artboard names automatically to their widthxheight. This way, when exporting files one could use the prefix to export everything easily and skipping a lot of manual work. It could work a bit like the batch file export dialog, allowing you to "build" newly created artboard names based on filename, size, etc.

    Also, if I click with the new artboard tool it would be great if it…

  13. Button to remove all groups and individual graphics located outside Artboard

    While working in a file with many Artboards and while exporting each artboard to a separate EPS, AI carries over all graphics from the original file even if the graphics from each EPS file is resumed to it's artboard.

  14. Feedback on Invite to edit Feature (in Beta now)

    In our next feature update as part of cloud documents in Illustrator, we bring to you the “Invite to Edit” feature that is intended to help you share and collaborate with others.

    What is it?
    Collaborate with others with the Invite to Edit feature. Share your cloud document with other collaborators so that they can also edit your document. Find documents that others have shared with you in a new section called “Shared with you” which you can find on the Home Screen.

  15. Maintain Word style

    When I paste an italicized Word font into the Illustrator, it becomes plain text.

    I'd like to see Adobe improve this feature so that you can "copy and paste" while maintaining Word's italics and other styles.

  16. Improved Artboard management

    For a long time I have been creating presentations in Adobe InDesign, however I have recently moved to creating presentations in Illustrator because of the greater flexibility with page layout.

    In Illustrator you’re able to create a presentation for example 5x5 1920x1080, zoom out and see all the artboards. This is really good to zoom out and see everything at a glance.

    The issues comes when you want to add and manage artboards. If I select the second artboard and add an artboard, it places it at the end of the presentation or the current row, in order to set…

  17. Added a slug area in document setup

    In InDesign's document setup, there are Slug settings in addition to Bleed.
    https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/how-to/set-print-bleed.html

    There is no a slug area in Illustrator. As a result, users are stacking another large artboard underneath the artboard as an alternative to a slug area. This situation should be remedied by adding Slug settings.


    InDesignのドキュメント設定には、裁ち落としに加えて印刷可能領域の設定があります。
    Illustratorには印刷可能領域の設定がありません。そのためユーザーはかわりに別の大きなサイズのアートボードを下に重ねています。この現状は印刷可能領域の設定を追加することで改善されなければいけません。

  19. Ability to create a new document

    I want to create a new document and not one from a template. Please add "Create New Blank Document".

    I use this for mobile games and don't think it's fair I have to revert back to Legacy to just create a quick ai file to edit and go.

  20. Bring back "hide edges" for type within a paragraph

    I used to be able to select a line of type, hide edges, and then view how various fonts looked (without seeing the type bar that show's it's selected). Not being able to do this has greatly slowed down my process. Please bring back "Hide Edges" for selected type within a paragraph.
