  1. 白色底的文档导出缺少边界 / A way to export an image with canvas color visible when Use Artboard option is disabled

    当画板为白色底时,右键“导出所选项目”,导出的文件没有边界,无法分辨单个项目。
    目前的解决方法是在画板上添加一个有描边的矩形,但是当有多个画板时这个方法会比较麻烦。另外一种方法是每个画板单独导出一张图片,再整合到一个文档里,这样也会增加很多工作量。希望团队能有更好的方案。
    使用场景举例:当给客户提案或预览整体效果时,需要将多个画板同时导出到一个文件(png或jpg),这时如果画板底色为白色,就无法分辨边界。

  2. Display artboard captions when exporting artboards

    Every time when i have multiple artboards and hit Save As, Ii don't know exactly which artboards i want to include, cause i don't know the specific number.
    So i go back out of the save as dialog, pick the Artboard Tool and save again, now able to see which numbers i want to include. I would be less time consumption if it would show the numbers of the artboards always no matter which tool is selected, when there is a save as or export dialog started.

  3. Preview of the Artboard Sizing

    If we could see what the sizing of the artboard would look like before we click the create button, because sometimes it's just easier to test there before starting an entire new document! :)

  4. Date of last modification of artboard

    It would be great for everyone who makes document with multiple rounds of revisions to have a feature that will keep track of last date and time of modifications.

  5. 功能请求:关于画板移动

    下面是使用场景:
    当一个大项目中有多个小项目(多个画板),每个小项目都需要标注说明性文字。当我要把所有(或部分)小项目移动到画布的其他位置,目前我只能对画板进行移动,每个画板的说明文字无法一起移动。当前的操作是,画板和文字需要分别移动,非常麻烦,而且项目多的时候容易出错。希望能增加相应的功能!

  7. Add a "move/copy art with artboard" switch to the artboard options, or the main prefs.

    Currently the only place the "move/copy art with artboard" switch exists is a button on the Control bar. I have never liked the Control bar and have hidden it since it was first added to Illustrator back in CS3.

    In my workflow, I almost never want to move/copy art with artboard, and for some reason this switch constantly turns itself back on, so it's extra annoying to have to either lock all my layers, or dig around this part of the interface I never use.

    If I hit return with the Artboard tool selected, I'll bring up the current artboard's…

  8. Increase the precision of illustrator to at least 10 decimal points, fix Place...

    Please increase the precision of Illustrator for placing files such as .dwg from other programs. I noticed the shapes change a lot. Or, change the initial size of the placed file to as large as the artboard. I know you have this option when you drag and drop a file, but you do not have this option when you select File-Place...

  10. Add the ability to reduce the size of the canvas

    Currently there's no way to reduce the canvas size (not individual artboard sizes). I think it would be great if we could.

    The default canvas size is quite big if you are working with small artboards. It makes using the scroll bars annoying, because it scrolls excessively far if you try to move the bar sliders in any direction by holding them with the mouse and dragging. This would not be an issue with a smaller canvas size.

    Having a smaller canvas size also I think would just be nicer too because you can make all your artboards mostly fill…

  11. Batch rename of artboards and layers

    its so hard today to work with renaming many artboards. At the export (file > Export....) its the same problem, even if we decided to "Asset Export", we don't have the control of that. This featured is used so many time in Figma, por example, even we can perform a RegEx renaming.

  12. Change the scale of the document's rulers

    As you've just done for the dimensioning of objects, I'd like to be able to change the scale at which I draw my document by right-clicking in the ruler. I work in technical illustration and draw images of very large machines (20 to 150 m). I have to use CorelDraw (which has always had this function) and copy them into Illustrator to rework them.

  13. Trim View - Isolate to one artboard only

    I like the option of "Trim View" to temporarily hide artwork that outside of my artboard. But when I have overlapping artboards and I try to use trim view on one of them Illustrator combines the area of the overlapping artboards and trims everything outside of that "merged" artboard. This defeats the purpose of using trim view for me. I would like trim view to isolate the artboard I'm working on and only that artboard. It would also be nice if the black lines showing the other artboard extents would also disappear when entering trim view for a single artboard.…

  14. Resize Artboard: Fit to visible.

    When dealing with a single page of artwork, resizing the artboard to artwork bounds does not take layers being hidden into consideration. So you have an artboard larger than your desired artwork.
    Along with fit-to-artwork bounds and fit-to-selected artwork, can we have a third option for fit-to-visible layers, please?

  15. Make a new artboard to get created after the last artboard

    This may have already been suggested but I couldn't find it...

    I would like to see new/duplicated artboard appear after the last artboard, rather than at the end of the first row. Or an option to put it before or after a specific artboard, which then rearranges all the other artboards (and the art on them). The way it is now, I have to rearrange artboards after I make/duplicate to get the new one to show in the right order (which is usually at the end, but not always).

    In the attached image, artboards 5, 6, 7 were either duplicated…

  16. Updating artboard dropdown to include social media and saving custom artboards

    The current artboards dropdown menu hasn't been changed in years. It should include social media and trending medium sizes. We should also have the ability to save artboard sizes that are custom to our needs. Just add a "Save artboard" in the dropdown or tool workspace. The current method of saving a template and then having to search, open and then resave the template takes too long and requires too many steps.

  17. Clip to Artboard [similar to Figma/XD]

    Can we please get a "Clip to artboard" Option in Illustrator, acting similar to the one to be found in XD or Figma? This would help a lot when working with multiple style frame inside one document.

  19. Liquid Page Layout (Artboards)

    I would love a "liquid Layout" feature like InDesign has for more easily converting artwork and pages sizes simultaneously.
    There are many times I create posters on a 11x17 artboard and need to easily reduce the art and page sizes to 5x7 for flyers.
    InDesign has had this feature for a long time and I feel it would definitely be useful to my workflow.

  20. Selecting layer selects artboard

    I have been given an icons file that has 100+ icons, each on a separate artboards.

    I can search (finally) for the item in Layers and select it, but it is not selecting or locating the artboard at the same time.

    An alternative to this would be to have a search function on artboards.
