Change paths to links when a project is duplicated
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
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
Define a default placement option
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
Sort content in links palette + User controlled preflight warnings
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
Scale raster images by setting a new resolution
I'd like a tool which allows us to scale raster images (linked or embedded) relative to the artboard raster effect settings. eg. you'd tell it 72 dpi, 150dpi, 300dpi, 355dpi etc. and the image would re-scale to the correct relative size against the artboard.
At the moment raster images brought into Illustrator always seem to appear at 72pdi, and are scaled too large relative to an artboard with 300dpi raster effects. This is a problem which needs fixing.2 votes
Copy images from the web and paste them directly in Illustrator
Please, guys, let us copy images from the web or our OS and paste them directly into Illustrator as Figma does.
In general...can you look at everything that Figma does when it comes to UX and take inspiration from there? I think there's a lot of room for improvement when it comes to UX in Adobe products :D
Thanks in advance!1 vote
Multi selected Linked files Placement options change (links panel)
Multiple linked files on artboard. Default Placement option for all files is Preserve: Transforms.
I need to change them for Preserve:File Dimension but must do it file by file,
because after selecting all linked files Placement options are greyed out
and not avaiable for multi use .
It would be nice to improve it by letting change Placement options for multi selected files.
I need to change 30000 of them clicking one by one right now. So any help (or bypass idea) to solve this problem will be greatly appreciated.1 vote

Unembed JPEGs & PNGs
Please return the feature from the older versions that lets you unembed JPEGs & PNGs. I hate that it's only possible to do with TIFFs and PSDs now. It's such a pain when you're trying to reduce the file size.1 vote
Save cropped image
Ability to save a cropped image is unintelligible, not intuitive. Help function is no help at all!1 vote
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.

Please restore "Lettering" in the Trace presets
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
