  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Paramétrage des traits de coupe

    Avoir la possibilité de régler les traits de coupe sur 3 paramètres :
    - La distance du plan de travail
    - la longueur des traits de coupe
    - la graisse des traits de coupe.
    Aujourd'hui, ils occupent une taille de 2cm soit une augmentation de la largeur et de la longueur de 4cm. Pour de l'impression grand format sur adhésif, cela fin par faire une surface non négligeable.
    Idem pour des impositions sur des documents A4 ou^l'on perd facilement une occurence en largeur et en hauteur.
    Au cas où les traits de coupes seraient normé pour l'imprimerie, il est toujours…

  13. 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.

  14. Let Artboard/Fit to Selected Art work for Selected Guides too

    When working on patterns, I often create a rectangle converted to a guide for the tile size.
    Unfortunately Fit to Selected Art does not recognise a guide to fit to.
    So I need to first release the Guide, then apply Fit to Selected art, and then make the Guide again.

  15. Option to assign chosen profile selection to all open documents in Missing Profile box

    When opening a project, I frequently have to choose either not to colour manage or I have to assign a particular profile to the document due to working with a number of different print houses. As I can sometimes open 10-20 documents at a time to edit them, would it be possible to assign the designated choice to all open documents at the same time, i.e., have a selection box you can tick to 'Apply selected profile option to all open projects'?

    Currently it is really laborious choosing the profile for each individual file as it opens.

  16. Duplicate Artboard should place the new artboard inside the canvas if possible

    "Duplicate Artboard" always tries to place the new artboard to the right of the selected artboard which often makes it fall outside of the canvas, failing with the error " Cannot create artboard outside the canvas. Please rearrange and try again." "New Artboard" does not have this problem. Please have duplicate artboard use new artboard's placement logic.

  18. 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.

  19. Canvas Size Limit

    I know there is already a massive discussion around this topic, but I had an idea this morning. The "Large Artboard" that is now available as far as I can tell is not truly a new massive artboard. It's just doing 1:10 scale math for you automatically. I see underneath the hood when using my vinyl cutter for example. A file sent to the cutting software sees everything at 10% size. Another example is when copy/paste from large artboard to a normal board, it will come in at 10% size.
    Here's my suggestion: Instead of having a single large artboard…

  20. Safety

    Can you add a safety margin in the same way as there is the ability to add a bleed guide? Like it has in InDesign
