  1. Multiple Artboard Save

    Some older versions of AI does not show multiple artboards. When doing a save could there be the option for artboards like when SVG is selected.

  2. Move & Scale by small decrease/increment of mouse wheel in properties

    The idea is that when i use CTRL + Mouse Wheel to scale or move in properties any object or text the numbers are something like Y: 550.624 px when doing this they change to Y: 550.7 px i would like to be able it changes at small phase Y: 550.625 px or Y: 550.63 px so there will be 2 additional increments. Else i have to type this numbers manually.
    I would assign them to some keyboard numbers like hold 1, 2 or 3 + mouse wheel for each increment.

  3. Placeholder text relative to your document

    When you choose the type tool and click, the placeholder text defaults to 12pt. This means that the text is tiny if you have a large artboard (see attached). It would be cool if the placeholder text was sized relative to your artboard instead, so that it's easy to see and work with.

  4. Place files via drag-n-drop but still allow options to be selected before placement.

    If we want to place a page of a multi-page PDF into an AI file, we have to do so using the File->Place menu with Options checked. It would be nice to be able to simply drag the PDF onto the AI document and have the option dialog open so we can choose which page to place.

  5. dashed line gap size

    please allow the gap size to be completely variable. right now max gap is 13.88". This feature would be useful for putting grommet marks on banners, normally 24" spacing but can be many different spacings ( but not on the same banner). Thanks Bob

  6. Mobile Creations

    In the 2015 version of Illustrator, when opening the app, there was a Mobile Creations section where I could open any of the drawings I had made on my iPad. While I was only able to open these if no other Illustrator files were currently open, it was at least easy to access tese items when needed.

    Currently, there isn't an option for this and I have to install the older version after mine updated automatically.

    It would be helpful to be able to access these mobile items easily from the landing page in Illustrator and from a customer Open…

  7. When it will be fixed question.

    Dear Developers of Illustrator CC and Management team, i have seen the list of all of your pretty names in about illustrator section and can now play "How many Kumars worked on the latest version" game. It may be different in your culture and menthality, like you have more patience, tolerance, you think strategically and working on the long term goals or such. But why do you think that a half cooked curry should taste as good as propery cooked? Why for the heavens sake do we have to spend more time working as your Quality Assurance, and have a…

  8. If an active text area is way off-screen, end text entry and treat keyboard input as shortcuts.

    If you have been typing in a text area and pan away somewhere else, continuing to type results in the view port being dragged part of the way back to the active text area with the first key stroke and the rest of the way on the second.

    Typing into an off-screen text area is almost always a mistake for me and usually results in a text area that is now empty except for a Space, V, T or A character from my most common keyboard shortcuts. I'd prefer if it just registered that I probably didn't want to type…

  12. There is a double layer enabled at the launching screen and New File screen

    Upon opening the 2018 CC apps the welcome/launch and the New File screens have 2 layers attached and thus makes it hard to select the file or action that I want.

  13. stop Live corners assumptions

    When drawing with the curvature, I haven't tested with regular pen, if you draw a mix of corners and somewhat curved surfaces, then you go back to add some nice radiused corners, you will likely be annoyed by illustrator Thinking that you intended to draw a giant chamfer.

    No, I didn't draw a large chamfer. Do not assume I drew a large chamfer. Assuming a radius when illustrator sees a tangent arc connecting two lines is Great. But with chamfer there's nothing to be tangent to. So just because I drew two sharp corners in a row, before two curved…

    Need More Info  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    This should not be happening. Seems like a bug. The corner should not become a chamfer unless you do an Option-click on the live corner widget. Could you please share more details on when this happens?

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

  14. Ability to record the "Make Pixel Perfect" action

  16. Saving Colorways

    In Fashion Design it's usual to define multiple colrways for Patterns.
    It should valuable for Illustrator to save those colorways to be able to switch easily from one version to the other.
    Something like saving the visibility of objects but with color in the "Variables Manager"
    It should be cool too to get this feature (switchnig between colorways) in Creative Cloud Browser for reviewing...

  17. Angled Guidelines

    I'm working on a typography piece right now and my guidelines look like this (see attached.) The black lines are straight strokes. I think it would be really neat to have an option for angled guidelines, so I don't have to mix vertical/horizontal guides with strokes.

  18. Use arrow keys to kern letterforms

    I would like to use arrow keys to visually kern letterforms, instead of having to enter numerical values = what you can do now only if you outline type. Thanks, Barry

  19. Adobe installers for Mac install corrupt files

    Adobe installers for Mac install corrupt files, as shown by DiskWarrior "Files - Check All Files and Folders”. For instance:

    /Applications/Utilities/Adobe Application Manager/LWA/amtservices.framework/Versions/A/Resources/._Info.plist

    /Applications/Utilities/Adobe Application Manager/LWA/asneu.framework/Versions/A/Resources/._Info.plist

    It would be great if Adobe checked that to make sure all files are OK before releasing installers. Thanks.
