  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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. You can also easily take a non-cloud document and convert it into a cloud document in order…

  4. Can you please make a default artboard 13 x 19 size. Most screen printers use this size?

    typing in a new art board size every time AI is opened is a pain. 13 x 19 inch is a common film size that a lot of screen printers use. It would save time to pick that size as a default rather than filling it in as a custom board all the time

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. Drag & drop to re-order artboards

    It would be great to be able to drag and re-order artboards when designing multipage documents in illustrator.

  8. 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。

  9. Feedback on Enhaced Cloud Document Feature (in Beta now)

    Now, embed Photoshop cloud documents into your cloud documents and files. You will be able to select your Photoshop cloud documents in a new cloud picker in the Place dialog.

    Track the status of individual cloud documents, through the Cloud Sync icon in your CDO.

  10. Ability to create a new document

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

  11. 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.

  12. Separate rulers for art boards

    Could we get individual rulers per art board. This would make it easier to see spacing and relationships on individual boards.

  13. New document preset details fields tab order

    When creating a new document in both Illustrator and Photoshop the Preset Details tab order is frustrating. It would make more sense to enter a width in the field then hit tab to go to height field. Currently it tabs from width to units to height.
    I often enter a width hit tab and enter what I think is a height only to find it's sitting on the units dropdown.
    InDesign has this tab order correct and is much more sensible.

  14. Keep guides and elements in new document profile

    I know we can create new document profiles with custom size and custom swatches and use the profiles to quickly create new new custom documents with repeating specs.

    However either I am doing something wrong or I've missed something, but the guides don't get saved along the artboard size and swatches. Surely keeping the guides should be possible within the same technology? Would love to see this improvement.

    I have searched everywhere for a solution to always having to open an illustrator template file as a workaround.

    Thanks :)

  17. Previous/Next Artboard hotkeys should be able to keep zoom

    Right now Ai also does 'Fit Artboard in Window' when any of artboard navigation hotkeys are used. I’d like also be able to keep zoom level when navigating artboards.
