Would really be handy to have fit to crop, resize to crop etc. for linked images.3 votes
When crop tool is selected, add the live corners option to crop rounded corners or circles. Please and thank you.1 vote
There is an intended way to do it.
Once your image is cropped, you can do Object > Clipping Mask > Make and Ai will create and select a rectangular clipping mask for your image.
Then you have to convert it to a live shape, with Object > Shape > Convert to Shape.
Then you can round its corners in Transform panel, typing in a value in one of the Corner Radius fields (if they are linked) in the Rectangle Properties section.
All of these can be recorded as an action and applied later with a click in Actions panel or a hotkey.
Please test how it works for you and comment back.
When I duplicate files with their respective links in a new folder, in order to produce a new art in the same format as the first. Illustrator does not change the link address, when I click on "Edit Original" it opens the link of the first folder, if we are not aware, we end up editing the link of the wrong folder.2 votes
I use photoshop and illustrator in tandem and often place images in illustrator that exceed the max width (227"). It would be so helpful if there were a place option where you can select scale. For example, I would like to place a 250" wide image in illustrator at 25" wide, or tenth scale.4 votes
Keep File Name on Embedded Images. So many times the file name disappears after the image is embedded and the file is saved. If you have multiple versions of an image it would be helpful to have the file name.6 votes
With the Crop image tool, it would be nice if the initial crop bounds were to the exact size of the selected image. Right now when you select an image to crop, it creates a random selection, that requires more work than if the crop selected the outer bounds of the image instead of a small selection.1 vote
Eric, this behaviour is regulated in Preferences > General > Enable Content Aware Defaults.
Notice that checking this off will also disable auto-placing of color stops in Freeform Gradients and of, pins in Puppet Warp.
If you want to be able to regulate these separately, perhaps you might want to vote for this request:
It will be great time saving if i can quickly replace an image just by dragging and dropping an image into a frame of a cropped image like i can do in InDesign. I too slow to have to look for the new link of the image open finder search thumbnails, etc. Could that be possible?5 votes
Hi, it would be a great feature in Illustrator if you could see at a glance where the illustrator file is linked eg Indesign or Framemaker.
This would help massively and save considerable time when updating files that use the same linked Illustrator file.

As a user, I want to be informed when I am importing a 16-bit image that they are not supported and need to be converted to 8-bit
Since AI devs don't seem keen to add 16-bit functionality to AI, at the very least, support your users by informing them that they are importing something that AI cannot display correctly.2 votes
For example, I have a multi-page PDF file in my hand.
I choose PDF file in illustrator and I can't understand which page of PDF.
How I can understand which page of PDF file.
And I would like to be able to change the pages like the photo below.6 votes
Right click on an imported or linked image (Like a picture you just took with your phone or any other image) and have an option "Resize to Original Size" or "Resize to 100%." Similar to Apple's Keynote application for imported images when you click the button "Original Size."13 votes
I cannot match prior documents with the new advanced settings.
I trace documents of text to be made into glass etchings and the previous "Lettering" preset in CS 5.5. Illustrator was perfect but the new sliders don't produce results as clean as previously.1 vote
i working with pdf files and placeing pages into artboards.
my problem is when i want to relink multiple placed page to one page, i have to repeat Relink...5 votes
Instead of blank, empty image frame when a linked image is missing please embed a preview of each linked image. That way, just like Indesign, it will be possible to see what the missing file looks like as you attempt to relink the image.3 votes
Make it possible to define other placement options in preferences. So you can, for example, make complete documents with "File dimensions" as a preference2 votes
It would be really great if we can provide a feature to remove background and make objects transparent within Illustrator. There are users who import pictures in Illustrator but in order to make the background transparent, they have to use other application and, image trace would be complicated.4 votes
Added sorting ability in links palette would be very useful.
Allowing me to sort by file size, alpha, date placed, date altered. Similar to finder or windows explorer. Allowing me to rearrange the columns to suit my needs.
A preflight indicator of any potential conflicts would be a nice add as well.
CMYK doc with an RGB image placed. Unused nodes swatches, does this doc contain any overprint items, that kind of thing. In a perfect world I could set in prefs what I want warnings for.2 votes
