  2. Need 'Allow Tool Recording ' feauture in Illustrator's Action Panel

    I'm a graphic designer, digital artist, and traditional painter with over 20 years of experience. As a digital artist and painter, I would like to record my workflow within Illustrator with targeted layers, similar to how Rebelle records only top layers. I would greatly appreciate it if you could implement the tool recording and workflow recording options in Illustrator specifically for particular targeted layers or for all the layers in a project. This would be a great option for all digital artists, as it would save us time in recording and showcasing our work in video form. It's a very…

  3. Batch convert to AI format

    I would appreciate a way to batch convert multiple vector files (eps, svg, etc.) to .ai format.
    I get a lot of eps files, and I would like to convert them to Illustrator files all at once without having to open them individually and saving them one at a time. I thought this used to be possible in Bridge, but I can't find anyone else who remembers this.
    Thank you!

  4. データ結合 アクションのバッチ処理の際の変数のデータセット開始位置指定について

    アクションのバッチ処理を用いてデータ結合を行う際、
    CSVの2行目からデータセット1,データセット2~と読み込まれますが、
    行数が数百~数千行ある場合、例えば、「データセット100から200まで」など、
    開始位置や行数、範囲を指定してバッチ処理することはできないでしょうか。

    現在は、CSVファイルを100行ずつ分割して複数作成し、都度、読込みなおすという作業をしていますが、
    大変面倒で不便ですので、データセットの範囲を指定できるようにしていただけると助かります。
    どうぞ宜しくお願いいたします。

  5. Pull multiple images from folder one at a time, image trace/expand and store in 2nd folder, in 2 different formats

    Can you make it so that an Action in Illustrator will pull batch images (probably one at a time to avoid processor overload) into Illustrator from a specified folder, apply image trace, apply expand, then save to a second folder in two different formats (EPS/jpg).

    And PLEASE keep the settings for Image Trace (mode, etc) the same for each imported image, instead of returning to default.

  6. Actions for Image Tracing

    Hi Adobe, PLEASE can you add more detail to the actions. For example, when I run an image trace, I don't just want to rerun the last one as I have different presets. I want to be able to say use the "Outline Fills" Image Trace and expand. Additionally these should be able to be adjusted later by double clicking the action line - like photoshop does

    Thank you!

  7. Crop Image to Artboard Option

    When creating multiple graphics with high-quality images, it would be great if there was an option to select when cropping an image that automatically cropped the image to the size of the artboard.

  9. Pencil and Pen Tool Request

    I've been using Adobe products over 30 years and saw tool stay the same over time. The way I see Illustrator it should mimic how an Illustrator uses a pencil and pen.

    The title it's self demands changes to give us a more natural feel using the tools. The Pen and Pencil tool we can use as a major tool used.

    Like using the Pencil Tool there could be variations as we are drawing with Pen pressure that varies kinda like tapers and thick lines based on how we apply a calligraphy path, It opens and closes.

    There are so…

  10. Hold Key to Zoom, like in Sketch

    I need a functionality like in Sketch app to Zoom In / Out canvas quickly and smoothly!

    So, just to hold Command key and I can smoothly and quickly do this.
    This should be common for macOS art apps…

    I’m not using trackpad, but I’m using Magic Mouse 2, so I can always pan canvas using gestures on a mouse with one finger, but I don't have a scroll wheel and to Zoom I’d need just to hold a Command key, like in Sketch! That's it.

    Attached example video of how it works perfectly in Sketch.

  12. Improving Action tool for moving and copying objects\group of objects

    As a fashion designer I make a lot of technical sketches in Adobe Illustrator daily.

    Usually garments are symmetrical and to save my time and make my working process more convenient I learned how to move and reflect an object exactly to the centre of the other half in 6 steps. But it is a lot of steps, so when I tried to record an action with all steps it didn't work correctly with other objects.

    I did and attached a small presentation to explain what I do and why action doesn't work. Please update the action tool that we…

  13. Simple Drop Shadow Action - make action active

    I'm trying to create a drop shadow action for a specific ratio that will be used company wide. But each time I try to record it, it doesn't want to stay active. It's always grayed out and unusable.

  14. Magic Keyboardで文章入力時に、テキスト内をカーソル(右下の矢印)を使って、移動できるようにしてほしい

    キーボード(Magic Keyboard等)で、文字入力する際に、
    テキスト内をカーソルで(キーボード右下の矢印で)移動ができるようにしてください。
    トラックパッドでいちいち位置を選択するのが手間です。

  16. Make it possible to TOTALLY OPT out of The creative Cloud!

    Not every one wants it, and it is locking up my PC. It opens way too many programs and processes.

  19. Better Action Set Organization in Illustrator

    We have a lot of Actions but only a few are needed at a time based on the workflow you're currently in. It would be great to have the "for the moment" unutilized actions hidden when in button mode. Action Sets functioning like Libraries while in Button Mode without having to delete and then reload is not a good way of going about this.

  20. An image or shape splitter that randomly generates splits in an image based upon user-set ranges

    Currently, mosaics are somewhat difficult to make (I am new so I don't know everything, therefore I have some issues with this) I am looking for a function that allows the splitting of images, shapes, or shape groups, through a menu that you place ranges upon (i.e. amount of resulting shapes, how many sides per shape as a range between two numbers, etc.)

    The ability to select shapes in an image by area and color to then split them randomly while still keeping original outline form would be also appreciated, along with averaging color values if you choose to split…
