  1. Make Eyedropper tool usable in Color Picker dialog, which can pick colors from everywhere

    Can you make the Color Picker have an Eyedropper tool that can select any color on the screen when you double click the swatch? Similar to Photoshop.

    Also have the default in any way you reach a color picker be hexadecimal so it is easier to copy and paste the color to other programs, etc. It defaults in this section, but I cannot select any color on the board while this is open.

  2. Fully support the SVG standard

    Illustrator can not read every SVG file. Some it doesn't read at all, some are imported only halfway or just completely messed up. There are issues with <use>, especially when used in herarchies. e.g. this file: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europaflagge#/media/File:Flag_of_Europe.svg There are issues with groups and masks and there are issues when units are missing e.g. from stroke widths. Also: SVG can have several attributes which Illustrator will delete when opening. Fully supporting the standard will enable people to have a workflow based on SVG files.

    Just a general status update. We are currently and will continuously improve SVG import support in Adobe Illustrator. We are currently working on solving the issues mentioned in this report. Please feel free to open new bug reports here on uservoice if you are experiencing additional/untracked issues.

  3. Convert text to outlines on open

    If fonts are missing on open, give the option to expand/convert to outlines. I work in the sign industry, It is a huge hassle to contact customers to have them convert it and re-send it. They frequently don't know how/didn't make the artwork to begin with. I typically get around this using acrobat watermark trick, but it's very time consuming. We have over 6,000 fonts, and we still have missing fonts all the time.

    Hello,


    We have started working on the tech that allows us to enable the following:

    • Ability to convert the outlined/expanded text back to live text.
    • Ability to lock objects to a character/glyph of a live text, allowing users to change the text (properties) while the object stays locked into the character.


    As we work through the complexities of handling different font families, font size, and other font properties, we would love to meet with you and share our thinking around it and understand :

    • Your use cases and workflows that this feature will help you with.
    • What is most essential for you.
    • The workarounds that you currently use to achieve this.

    If you are interested, please pick a time slot that works for you using this link. https://calendly.com/meetai/60min?month=2023-01

  4. Stop truncating filenames in Recent files

    AI truncates names of my files in Open Recent Files menu.
    Why?!
    Some of my files differ only in that truncated parts. I have to guess and remember.
    Please, give me an option to set limit myself (in Prefs file or Dialogue) or remove limit completely.

    I am happy to share that we have started working on it and plan to release it soon. 


    We plan to increase the character limit to 100. Beyond that, the filename will start truncating from the middle. I hope this works for all of you. Let us know what you think.


    Thanks,

  5. GET RID OF THE REVERT HOTKEY!

    The hot key for Revert is WAY too similar to the hot key for Save As in Photoshop and I lost an entire day fo work saving after finishing a project. The fact that that can happen accidentally, even with the approval button is INFURIATING!

    Hi Everyone,

    We have started working on this request. This was only a Mac-related issue where the shortcut got changed. We are setting it back to F12. We are not removing this shortcut, because a lot if users do use this shortcut. If you want to remove it, or change it to even more obscure key, you can do it as per your liking by editing the shortcut.

    Please refer this link to know how to customize keyboard shortcuts: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/illustrator/using/customizing-keyboard-shortcuts.html#Definenewkeyboardshortcuts

    Thanks,

    Varun

  6. 字形パネルメニュー「標準字形に戻す」の仕様が間違っている

    日本語版Illustratorの字形パネルメニューには、メニュー項目「標準字形に戻す」があります。

    期待する「標準字形に戻す」の仕様:
    選択文字からGSUBフィーチャーが取り除かれ、そのフォントのデフォルトグリフが表示される。ただしccmpのようなデフォルトで有効なフィーチャーは除く。InDesignはこの仕様。

    現在の日本語版Illustratorの「標準字形に戻す」の仕様:
    選択文字にGSUBフィーチャー「fwid」(等幅全角字形)が付与され、等幅全角字形のグリフが表示されてしまう。

    標準字形の意味は、デフォルトグリフ(フォント内のcmapテーブルでマッピングされているグリフ)です。標準字形が「fwid」を意味することは決してありません。InDesignの仕様が正しく、Illustratorの仕様は間違っています。

    おそらく字形パネルが実装された当初から間違っており、現在でも間違ったままです。ユーザーはこの間違った仕様にいつも苦しめられています。

  7. Font identification

    Provide an automated routine to identify fonts that were converted to outlines, or that are in a bitmap format.

  8. Bug report form for illustrator should accept SVG attachments

    It's very difficult to share SVG bugs with you guys if your bug report form wont accept SVG. Couldn't even 7s it.

    I know this is not an Illustrator bug, but I have an illustrator bug which I can't report because your bug reporter is configured poorly. So that's why I am reporting it under this category. Please pass it on to the appropriate people on your web team.
