  1. Another way to colorize our illustrations.

    As we all know, Adobe Flash is no longer part of the Adobe Creative Cloud. But there is one very useful feature of Flash that should be part of Adobe Illustrator and that is the way that we where able to colorize vectors on Flash.
    With Illustrator we can put a color inside an object, but if i want to put some colours into a surface between some handdrawned vectors that crosses I can't do it.

    Even the way that we were able to select a part of a vector when they crossed each other.

    Those were very practical ways…

  2. Opening Last opened/recent documents

    Problems opening Last opened/recent documents in Adobe Illustrator

    I teach Adobe Illustrator to around 60 16 year olds.
    When they first open the program & either double click on the image of their last document it often won't open. In fact it often opens another recent file, but not the one they actually have clicked on. The only way round I have found to get up their work is to >window & turn Application Frame off? This is far from ideal & I don't understand why it's suddenly started happening......
    As you can imagine the 16 year olds find this…

  3. Data Merge Batch process

    Give Illustrator the same functionality panel of Data Merge of Indesign. Works better and supports Data Tabbed exported from Excel.

You guys made a 5 minutes uninstall a ******** 2 hour task for me forcing to update creative cloud, creating an account so I can login to remove illustrator.

  5. Illustrator CC 2019 (oct) NOT as default program for file extension .doc

    Just upgraded to Creative Cloud 4.7.0.400, from 24.09.2018 on Windows 8.

    Weirdly my E-Mail client suddenly opens .doc-files in Illustrator CC. I checked Windows 8's default program setting for file extension .doc ... it's still set to "Word". The E-Mail client (Opera Mail) is pretty slim and itself has no way of setting file extension behaviours - it's depending on the systems settings.

    The Bridge's file extension dialog in Bridge settings does not list .DOC files, so it's not set to illustrator there either.

    However if i go into windows file extension settings again, highlight .doc and click "edit program"…

  6. Optional EPS with artboard multi-file save

    When saving an EPS with artboards, Illustrator produces two files. Please make this optional – I just want to save the one EPS with artboard. However, Illustrator makes a copy and labels it Filename_01.eps. Thank you!

  7. wacom

    Have been unable to transform using my Wacom intuos pro in illustrator for the last few versions. The selection tool constantly defaults to rotate the object unless I zoomed right in. It is incredibly frustrating for workflow.
    I have contacted wacom who advised the issue is with Illustrator and not the tablet.

    ADOBE!! I have a request. Would you consider creating a T-shirt making app for Illustrator? It would be great to be able to design your layout, take a look at your sample, then send to a printer to print! It's a thought 😀

  11. Ability to use separate graphic styles on strokes versus fills

    the title basically says it all.

    i would like to apply a graphic style to an object's stroke, and apply a separate graphic style, or more likely no style to that object's fill. this way i can alter the stroke of many objects at once, without altering their fill color.

    typically i have illustrations with 100s of groups each consisting of 100s of faces with the same stroke style, but different fill colors. in the course of design, i need to tweak the stroke color and weight to get the right look, but it's extremely tedious to have to click…

  13. Stop changing artwork location when changing paragraph justification

    When working with type, it is incredibly annoying that all of it shifts it's location when you're changing paragraph justification. I'm not sure for what reason you would want it to move the actual type and not just shift the justification icon box shown at the type baseline.

  14. Automatically move to input box when selecting a transform option

    This would improve workflow by allowing users to not have to click on the input box when transforming a layer. It actually used to be a feature but was removed for reasons I'm not aware of.

  16. WHY ARE YOUR COLOR MODE SETTINGS SEPARATE BUT CALLED THE SAME?

    SO YEAH, THERE IS A SEPARATE COLOR MODE IN THE DOCUMENT COLOR MODE.....SEPARATE AND DIFFERENT FROM THE COLOR MODE IN THE COLOR WINDOW.

    WHAT PURPOSE THIS DESIGN CHOICE WOULD SERVE, IS BEYOND ME.

    WHAT DOES THAT ACTUALLY DO? WHY WHY WHY WOULD ADOBE MAKE IT SO CHANGING YOUR DOCUMENT COLOR MODE IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FUNCTION THEN CHANGING THE COLOR MODE IN THE "COLOR," WINDOW? WHAT PURPOSE DOES THAT SERVE? WHY DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? IT JUST MAKES ME WANT TO TEAR MY EARS OFF AND POKE MY OWN EYES OUT.

    CAN SOMEONE PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.....FOR THE…

  17. More Export options

    It would be awesome if the export formats had a couple more custom/individual settings like:

    • Active (checkbox)
    • Subfolder Name
    • Prefix (like the Suffix) and maybe a couple more under a setting panel for the one format like Lowercase etc :)

  20. Forcing us to use Preview Bounds to get cap handles in CC 2019 is a no

    For years we've had cap handles on strokes. Now we have to turn on Preview Bounds to get them. Unacceptable.
