Easier way to do charts and graphs
PLEASE come up with an EASY and SEAMLESS way to export excel charts into Adobe Illustrator! Please! I have over 153 bar and pie charts I have to create from a pivot table in excel, which is arduous and time consuming. The chart feature in Illustrator is awful and confusing to use as well. I’ve been doing charts the same way for years by copy/pasting from excel into illustrator and having to remove about 10,000 clipping paths. Surely there is something you can that will make it easier to do charts. An extension? Maybe play nice with the @micsrosoft developers? Pretty please?
The Datylon Graph extension, with its datasheet manager feature, can help to solve your data import/export issues (along with many of the other challenges faced when trying to work on charts within Illustrator!)

The data "sheet" in Illustrator is very awkward to work with - and hasn't seen much if any development for a long time.
Also, I would like to see a preview as one ticks or unticks chart options.
