  1. .obj asset file multiple group/layer hierarchy

    It’s very cool that you can export 3d models as obj - when I try to import the obj file Into blender, the group objects become scattered and lose there positioning that I have created - please make it so that when I import the file all of the objects are together / grouped as I intended and not scattered - great job on the new update 👍🏻

  2. Exporting files - range settings resetting for different file types

    Is it possible for the page 'range' to reset when exporting different file types? It's really frustrating when I've been exporting a few single pages to jpeg for example, and then when exporting a PDF of the document it retains the page range. It's a small issue, but is pretty annoying!

  3. Can’t save SVG with <desc> tags

    I've recently updated my Illustrator to Version 26.3.1 and when i save out svg data it is no longer able to save out <desc> tags. Extremely detrimental problem for my pipeline. Please look into this issue since 26.2.1 will only be available until 2023. I have attached a photo of the issue demonstrated in Notepad++

  4. Make the 'Create PDF Compatible File' tickbox permanent or lockable.

    Make the 'Create PDF Compatible File' tickbox permanent or lockable.

    Without this being ticked, I can't see any thumbnails of my illustrator files, which is completely disruptive to work flow. I'd like to request that users be able to lock this tick box to ticked status.

    Currently, it's 'sticky': whatever you did last time sticks. Unless you open a doc that was saved without it checked.

    Working in a studio, I handle all kinds of files made by all kinds of people, and time is of a premium.

    'Sticky' but with a fin-print-style 'but' that requires you to be vigilant…

  5. Is there a way to change the state of the page information line when exporting from Illustrator to a PDF?

    Is there a way to change the state of the page information line when exporting from Illustrator to a PDF.
    We need it closer to the bleed box (or right on it) and much further to the left.
    We need it closer to the bleed frame (or right on it) and much further to the left.
    I can't find anything in Illustrator's settings (of course). This will probably be defined in some file. I would like to edit this file with an editor to adapt it to our needs. Or is that perhaps possible via a script?

    The background is…

  6. Copy/paste vector: Figma → Illustrator

    Can we be able to paste vectors from Figma, please?

    In this other post you already made it possible to copy/paste from Illustrator to Figma, could we please have the whole workflow instead of only half of it?

  7. Add Export JPG/PNG option to Package Feature

    Please add an "Export As..." option the Package feature settings so we can export JPG or PNG files in the packaged file folder. This would be immensely helpful! Thanks

  10. File Save Options - Recovery data location

    I'm running the latest version of Illustrator (26.2.1 as I'm writing this) but my data recovery preferences are somehow stuck at the location for Illustrator 20 and the application warns me every time that it can't save recovery data for the current document. I can change this, I know, but that still just keeps it then stuck at the location for version 26, and will presumably break again when version 27 is released.
    What I need is some way to restore the default behaviour which would (presumably) automatically update to the correct relative location for the current application version.

  12. ファイルをテンプレートとして保存する際の改善を求めます

    (Illustrator)ファイルをテンプレートとして保存するときに、アプリケーションフォルダ内のテンプレートフォルダにイラストレーター上から直接保存することが出来ないのは承知していますが、他の保存場所に保存しなければいけないのは一手間かかります。
    可能でしたら、デフォルトの「テンプレート」フォルダから直接、読み書き(保存も含む)出来ると、やはり助かりますので、是非対応してくださいますよう、要望を出しておきます。

  13. Baked-in colors when exporting Obj's

    I'm new to working with 3D objects in illustrator but I'd very much like to use Illustrator in my 3D workflow. Maybe I'm just out of the loop, but I was confused to see that the obj's I exported had no color. Is there a way to attach colors when exporting these?

  14. Staggering Saves

    I would like to be able to run multiple saves on a file without waiting for the first save to finish. For example while it is saving the .ai file I would like to also save a PDF immediately after. The software in the background wouldn't halt me interrupting my workflow but instead hold the second save in the background and run it once the first save finished. Prior to CC this was something I did a lot and competitors software as well as your own media encoder for Video apps have this function.

  15. Ability to rotate an image 90 degrees when exported for screens

    Having the ability to rotate an image 90 degrees when exported for screens would save a step when saving some art for the web.

    Some artwork with text is saved built so the type is horizontal for ease of typing/reading. Current exports require the art to be built and then rotated 90 degrees in Photoshop.

    The ability to rotate saves a step.
    It is a small nice improvement for Illustrator.

  16. Content Credentials (Beta) arriving for Illustrator ... and general concerns about Content Provenance / Attribution

    As Adobe are a leading player in the CAI initiative, are they rolling out 'Content Credentials' functionality to the other creation tools in the suite?
    Also - related to this - why do admin staff on here ask people to upload .AI files as bug fix evidence without conversations about risks of jeopardising Provenance and Attribution?

  17. import DXF Blocks

    In fashion Industry, one of the most common exchange file format is DXF-AAMA/ASTM.
    If it is too complex to Illustrator to handle all the subtilities of this format, could it be possible at least to manage "Blocks" ?
    Blocks are DXF entities which can be assimilate as "Groups" or "Symbols"
    but in Ai Groups and Symbols may stay on a single layer.
    In DXF Blocks, you may have multiple entities on multiple layers, but you need to keep them as a single object.
    So I was wondering if Ai could generate for each Block a layer (with the name of…

  18. Add option to Import DXF tool

    Hello,
    I have some request about the Import DXF feature.
    When opening a dxf file, the window ask if we want to scale the file to the artwork, but not the opposite.
    When opening a file at scale 1:1, it could be valuable to set the size of the artboard to the limits of the dxf file, as you have to do manually (most often) after you open it.
    It could also be cool to have a window showing the list of layers in the file and give the option to make a selection of those you want to import…

  19. Save Individual PDF's in CMYK from Artboards

    We are able to save the artboards using the "Export for Screens" function, but they export in RGB, even when using a CMYK file.
    It would be great to have an option, whether in the "Save As" window, to be able to save artboards as individual PDF's, with the artboard names, or something similar to "Export for Screens", but for CMYK files.

  20. Save and export

    File > Save and Export
    So many times the last time I saved a file was to export and then I had to reboot. This is an option that would save the headache of rebuilding just because someone asked you for a proof and your brain closed a file that was "saved".
