  1. Assets panel multiple selection with just mouse

    I want to use mouse and "Ctrl" to select assets I want to export in Asset Export panel. But I can't do that. Mouse works only as per 1 selection. Yes, I can hold "Ctrl" and click on different assets or use Shift to select some, but that not useful for me. Sometimes I want to select big groups of assets located at the beginning and end of the assets list, so I just want to hold "Ctrl" and play with mouse easily and fast by selecting any items.
    ****, it's like you just holding "Ctrl" and selecting folder with…

  2. Importoptionen dauerhaft sichtbar

    Seit einiger Zeit können in Illustrator die Importoptionen nicht mehr dauerhaft eingeschaltet (sichtbar sein)!
    Es ist sehr nervig und kostet viele Klicks, wenn man immer erst auf den Optionen-Button klicken muss, um die derzeitigen Einstellungen zu sehen.

  3. Exportación de recursos - Translated Asset Export

    La herramienta de exportación de recursos me parece genial y muy práctica pero los archivos pierden calidad.
    Genero diferentes dibujos dentro de un mismo archivo para imprimir camisetas y esa opción para nombrar los archivos y exportarlos es muy rápida.
    La realidad es que pierden mucha calidad y tengo que acabar generando mesas de trabajo diferentes y exportandolos de forma tradicional.
    Creo que si mejoraran ese aspecto sería ya la herramienta perfecta.
    gracias

  4. Reset symbol rotation and scale independently

    It would be nice if we had the option to reset symbol transformations independently.

    For example, only the scale (keeping the same rotation) or only the rotation (keeping the same scale).

  5. [BUG] xmpMM:DocumentID isn't unique at creation stage

    When you create new documents, they all share the same XMP documentID value while you would expect it's unique for every single new document.
    Saving the document solves the issue but it means one can't rely on documentID uniqueness while the document isn't saved.
    It needs to be unique at the creation stage already.

    Moving as a feature request. We generate an unique value only on file save. When you create a file it inherits all the attributes of the preset it uses. This is the reason you see the same uuid each time you create the document,

  6. Select multiple bulllets

    Used to be able to select multiple bullets by (I think it was) shift/opt/dragging on the multiple bullets. This isn't available int 22.1 version. Actually, it hasn't been for awhile. Can't understand ditching this. For drawing complex objects with multiple similar strokes (say for instance, the hairs on a dog) one can't "select same". Also difficult to select the whole layer, and then unselect. Please, please, please! Bring back this feature! WHY would you disable it anyhow???

  7. Global "Scale Strokes" Setting Affected by Scale Tool

    When I check or uncheck the "scale strokes" option in the scale tool, this affects the global stroke-scaling setting. This isn't expected, nor desired.

  8. Please make center of circles to show up when I drag anything inside of them to snap to

    Windows 10 PC, Illustrator CC:
    I'm trying to connect lines to the centers of circles, since this program has a problem snapping to center points of circles, I need to highlight a circle and hold ctrl to get the center of the circle to show up. Many times I try this there is simply no center point showing which doesn't make any sense. Please have all circles center points appear once you are dragging inside the circle in the work area. It would be nice if they snapped to the center as well.
    Thank you

  10. Glitchy remove behaviour in Color Groups in Recolor artwork

    There are a lot of problems when I removing color set in Color Groups.
    First - list jumps into the end, if I remove first element for example or any from the top. Also - Backspace or Del keys not works, I can't remove using them. From video you can see that there are a lot of colors and I want be able to select multiple of them with just a mouse.

    Thats just typical and simple UX from NSListView ... you know? Why you didn't implemented all that behaviour?

  11. Library text asset can't save style

    v22.1, Windows, 64bit

    When I try to add text with a modified appearance to the library I get;

    "Only basic appearances are supported for Text in Libraries. Advanced appearances have been dropped to add text to the current Library."

    Or; "Couldn't save text asset having style. Remove the styles and try again”.

    Seriously – no text styles in the library now? face palm

    Ok, so 'Text library asset' is a thing now… whatever it’s supposed to be for, it’s braking basic library functionality.

    If I want to add text with an advanced appearance to a library (ie. the ONLY sort…

  13. Pattern Brush Problem with Expand Appearance

    I want to paint a topographic card (map) with complex Strokes for the streets and rivers and so on.

    After creating different Pattern Brushes i would create a solid line for export to an other program.

    After choosing the Stroke with an used Pattern Brush i would "expand appearance" for getting a clean version without strokes.
    The Result is a lot of segmented curves and destroyed formes.

  15. Artboard Resizing

    Would like to be able to resize the artboards in both directions with a preview.
    I'm sometimes having an issue where I can't resize the artboard in both directions x & y. Also now there is no preview for this operation like in previous versions.

  16. Please add options for text curser so it can be viewed.

    why is the curser so thin that it can not be viewed. Make it thicker as you zoom out or add an option to change it or it's color.

  17. Slices

    I have created a logo and it saves in slices, and at one point in it's own folder, which I didn't ask it to do, I don't want that. Also the Illustrator program is to big, it falls off the screen at times and Photoshop is to small, I need a magnifying glass can they both be fixed so they can fit properly on the screen. Also now and then all the colors in swatch window disappears.

  18. The default unit of measure option for stroke shouldn't be pixels.

    The default unit of measure option for stroke shouldn't be pixels, because I don't think that's a good way to guide the flock.

  19. File synchronization fails for ai files saved with CC 2018

    I sync my files across several computers using Unison (an rsync command line tool). Since updating, .ai files will not synchronize. I am running macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 and CC 2018 v 22.0.0 on the computers that I am syncing.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. make ai file. A4 RGB layout with one text item. Save.
    2. run Unison.
    3. synchronization fails with message that the ai file does not exist on the other computer because it could not be renamed from the tmp version of the ai file that unison pulls from the other computer.

    Not sure if this is…

  20. Kuler Missing in CS6

    I'm still using Illustrator CS6. Last week I was able to use Kuler but, this week, I'm not. I still see it as a menu item/selection but, when selected, nothing happens. Can I load Color Themes into CS6? Or are us CS6 holdouts being pushed closer to involuntary compliance?
