  2. Illustrator 28 no longer retains editable text fields used in Acrobat.

    The company I work for often sends files that need to be filled out in Acrobat, but the art is edited in Illustrator. In Illustrator 27 there was no issue. I would edit the contents in Illustrator and then open in Acrobat to finish filling out the form. But as the subject line indicates, Illustrator 28 somehow removes these editable text fields set in Acrobat, making the file unusable for our customers.

    This work flow is not our choice, it's a requirement from some of our customers.

  5. Placing "Show Import Options" - Import Photoshop Artboards Individually into Illustrator

    Give placing options (similar to the PDF import options) when placing a Photoshop file (.PSD and .PSB) into Illustrator; if the "Show Import Options" box is checked, give the user the options to import Photoshop Artboards Individually (Similar to .Ai and PDF Artboards) or as the whole image file.

    The "Show Import Options" box must be checked to get these options, however if not checked, the whole image file will be imported into Illustrator regardless of artboards present.

  6. Export elements / assets in more formats than default ones, maybe ALL. Plugin or option needed

    Any way or plugin to export elements / assets in other formats than default ones by Illustrator? Especially DXF files. It's killing the workflow to jump to the dropdown every single time...

  8. Modifying paragraph style doesn't trigger the unsaved changes flag

    28.2 on macOS 12.6.5

    Illustrator doesn't prompt to save changes to paragraph styles if no other changes are made to a document.

    To reproduce:
    1. Create a document, add a paragraph style, save and close.
    2. Reopen document, modify the paragraph style, close document.

    Expected:
    At the end of step 2, when closing the document, Illustrator should ask if I want to save my changes, but it does not. After modifying the paragraph style, I can also see that the asterisk (*) does not appear next to the filename on the current tab, which normally indicates unsaved changes.

  9. Can't recover my work when i accidentally clicked Revert

    I was working in Illustrator and accidentally click on Revert and now my works are gone, it would be better if there is a undo button for that.

  11. Allow us to choose a preferable file format on Export or keep the last chosen one

    Please create a hotkey for the "Export as" function. It would also be nice if I could set AI to always remember my preferred filetype instead of always defaulting to png.

  12. Automated/AI-powered file names in Asset Export

    Asset Export needs more options to automate and/or use variables. Designers often need to export large groups of files (e.g. variations of a logo in multiple colours and sizes, with/without a claim or other element) which then have to be tediously and manually renamed and sorted to reflect things like size, color.
    It would be great if there were more option to automate the output by adding variables such as dimensions custom text fields, names of swatches used, etc This could even be an area where the use of AI might be useful to automatically detect the content and create…

  13. I cannot correctly open the same files that were made a couple of days ago

    I cannot correctly open the same files that were made a couple of days ago.
    When opening, a window appears: the file was made in a NEWER version. Import this file? Part of the data may be lost

  14. Multi page PDF import: needs to respect original document color space

    Hi,
    Now when selecting "All" for page range, Illustrator creates a document with default color space, e.g. now CMYK.
    It would be nice if PDF importer was a bit smarter and could check and respect original PDF's color space, and set up the document in Illustrator to match.

    E.g. when importing an RGB pdf, it would use RGB color space; and CMYK for CMYK.

  15. Option to save / export values in 64 bits

    I work in metric, and everything works perfectly until I have to export file to the CAD software which uses higher accuracy.

    If I have a line of 42 mm, actual dimension is 42.00007 (because the way illustrator stores values in points, and getting rounded in 32bit).
    Problem really shows up if I have to scale things 1000-10000 times

    Would be amazing if Illustrator had an option to save / export values in 64bits

  16. Add a way to resize an exported image with Export As method to a specific size, like Save for Web can

    In the old "Save for Web" function (please keep it!) it was possible to resize "on the fly" the destination image (EG my file is 8000 px but I can save an exported version of 800 without opening and resizing afterwards)
    In the "Export as.." function none of this is possible.

  17. ArialMT in Save and Save As

    Now the Save and Save As are creating an SVG with
    .st0{font-family:'ArialMT';}
    A better solution is
    .st0{font-family:'ArialMT',’Arial’;}

    Like it is in the export for screens

  19. Share to Review: Attach files to comments, Zoom more than 100%

    Attach file to comment. Typically the client add in quick sketches, reference images, new logo files and so on and it would be super helpful if they could attach those files to the comment in review mode to avoid having to still use e-mail or similar services to get quick assets between us and them.

    Deeper zoom function: The pdf can only be zoomed in to 100% of the artboard setting, so some details can't be seen. Infinite zoom would be ideal.
