  1. save

    Greetings,

    Just updating to 2021 software from CC2. Yes, I'm a dinosaur. One small but glaring difference is in previous versions, when I would Save, the Save screen would already have the file name highlighted so I could quickly type and rename it, or move the cursor. Now, I have to click on the file name field to make any changes. Small detail, but much more efficient previously. This goes for all of your products I assume, or certainly PS and INDD.

    Regards,
    Jason

  3. Keep type stylistic sets with SVG files

    I would like to see a feature that preserves a type stylistic set when converting to an SVG file.

  5. export large artboards to PNG using high (300 dpi) resolution

    Currently, files with large artboards (larger than 6535 px x 4730 px) can not be exported as a PNG with high resolution. The best is a medium resolution. My current project series requires a specific large artboard size (9075 px wide x 6201 px high exactly) and I would like to be able to export and then print them in high resolution to give my customers the best possible printed product. Illustrator does not currently support this, unfortunately.

  6. SVG Import Notification and/or debug log

    Short back story: My company is an online supplier of custom printed products. Customers design their order on our website which we translate into an SVG file. Our production team imports that SVG file into AI for final processing of the customers order.

    When importing SVG files to AI sometimes entire parts of the design are not imported without any notification or log of the event.

    For example, when our production team imports SVGs where the text contains an emoji we sometimes (maybe always?) find that the entire text block is no longer included in the design. This is not…

  8. SVG exporting of path points

    Illustrator SVG asset exporter doesn't export single-point paths.
    My work system reads SVG files' layer and object names as IDs. In these files, I create a single point with the pen tool to use the x,y values as coordinate data. (This object is graphically a Path with a single anchor point.) I'll also create paths with 2 or more points in these files. When I export these objects using the asset exporter, the paths with a single point doesn't get exported, while paths with 2 or more points export successfully. When using SaveAs>SVG it does export the paths with a…

  9. Add a "Ctrl +E" to illustrator for quick export

    InDesign has a "Ctrl+ E" for quick export instead of going down the menu bar and selecting it. Can illustrator put in a "Ctrl + E" for export. this is a annoyance since I'm exporting to jpg and tif formats all of the time from Illustrator for photoshop image adjustment

    Exporting in different resolution in JPEG is essential (a little bit surprised it is not already integrated)

    Can we have a PNG export tool similar to the one in desktop AI? I use it a lot for proofing, web stores etc... color depth, pixel dimensions and transparency?

    Like the old “save for web” tool.

  12. Asset Export bug report: Assets keep changing to include objects not in group

    There is a bug in Illustrator 24.3 where groups added to Asset Export change to include objects not in the group. This happens on save and on asset rename.

    I suspect this may be related to another annoying Illustrator bug where selecting objects sometimes appears to also select other unrelated objects somewhere else on the workspace.

  13. SVG Import image X and Y positions are multiplied by 2

    If you open this SVG in Chrome, FF, Inkscape, etc, the rectangle and the 120.png image should be stacked on top of each other. However, in Illustrator CC (As of 09-23-2020) the image appears at 240x240 for the X/Y position instead of the defined 120x120. Appears to be this way only with the image tag. If you were to do a transformation matrix, it fixes the problem but still it should be imported properly into Illustrator.

  14. Replace file with same name!

    Exporting png or other format, save with exact name, select "replace file", does not replace file but makes NEW file with "artboard" or other additional text. PLEASE when we select "replace", REPLACE the same file with the same name. Have to manually rename over 20 files. We have files that are linked in Indesign and this causes lots of extra time and effort every time there is an edit. Clients have to pay more for extra time, something that should be simple causes a large ripple effect when every other application renames replacement files correctly. PLEASE FIX THIS.

  15. file>export>export as... still lists Flash as an option

    How long ago was Flash rebranded to Animate? Five years now?

    The "Flash (SWF)" option in the Export As... dialogue should be "Animate (SWF)".

  16. Allow us to control the saving of cached copies of raster effects.

    I use a lot of raster effects in my work. A lot. I can easily have several thousand paths with effects on them. (Mostly Gaussian Blur, thanks for speeding that one up a few versions ago!)

    Some experimentation with saving multiple copies of an effect-heavy file with different raster effects resolutions confirmed my suspicion that the file size varies greatly with the effect PPI:

    300ppi: 70.8MB
    150ppi: 28.8MB
    72ppi: 14.4MB
    2ppi: 5.4MB

    Reloading the 300ppi copy made it obvious that there's a cache of raster effects in the file, as I didn't have to wait through a half a…

  17. Convert Psd to Illustrator Layer Fix

    The issue. Photoshop not converting files for illustrator correctly.
    excuses from locals: It works on in vectors... the arguing point to this... its art... and photoshop is being called a basic thing
    If subject A is photoshop and Subject B is our layers. We have effects and other such various components such as shadows and shading. We are trying to bridge this over to Illustrator.
    The way to accomplish this is each layer to be converted to png in a stack order atleast for a quick fix. So that way no programing and changes. The format would then work as…

  18. Copying a layer in a multi-layer file does not put anything on the clipboard for SVG

    Select the top layer in a multi-layer file
    Copy it to the clipboard
    Use a clipboard viewer to display the "Scalable Vector Graphics" format

    Expected Result: Well-formed SVG content to be on the clipboard.
    Actual Result: The clipboard has no data for the format, even thought it advertises it as being available.

    I am a Microsoft engineer reporting this on behalf of a customer who is attempting to paste a layer from Illustrator into PowerPoint as SVG.

  20. Checkbox to saving process for different file formats

    When we save for clients different file formats, it takes a lot of time to choose PNG and save, AI and save, EPS and save, PDF then save. Maybe a checkbox when we export what kind of file formats we want to export, and it also rewrites the earlier files.
