  2. fsType not honored when exporting as PDF

    Hello,
    I've noticed the fsType value in the OS/2 table of OTF fonts is not honored by Indesign nor Illustrator.

    I've set the value of fsType to 0x0102 and this should prevent subsetting and embedding.
    However, Illustrator exports to pdf, embedding . Worst, it gives no warning the embedding/subsetting isn't allowed for the current font.

    for info, I had flushed any font cache to be sure the font files are the good ones and deleted them from my disk before reopening my pdf to be sure they're embedded.
    For info, these fonts are located in Library > Application support >…

  3. Asset Export - Make Collection of File Settings

    When using the Asset Export feature – it would be nice to have collections of different formats and sizing. For a number of projects there are repeatable file formats that are needed.

    Allow the user to define these collections (not unlike creating and setting workspaces).

    One might need a collection that has only SVG and PDF, another collection could only be PNG (1x, 2x and 4x). And yet another might need SVG, JPG and PNG, there are so many different ways to work and exports that people need.

    It would be nice to repeat the Asset Export groupings as a…

  4. Illustrator to Mobile

    Mobile - We need a way to be able to open ai.files (or different formats from illustrator) and edit them in a mobile app.

    e.g.: Right now I will need to change the background of a design everyday. In Illustrator it's easy, all I need to do is change background color export and voila.

    However, if I can't find a solution to edit the background layer (or rectangle on top of it) on mobile. . . Adobe draw doesn't allow me to open ai.files or edit layer by layer. Can't really find a solution.

    I'm surprised that with such an…

  6. Export X, Y, W, H and angle to a text file or Excel format?

    Please add a feature to allow AI to export X,Y,W,H and angle to a text or Excel file.
    I have a need to get the coordinates and sizes of buttons (in pixels) for my Touch screen. After you design the image for LCD. You will need to know XYWH and angle for touch purpose. It will be good to have AI to send those information out to a file (not image).
    Thanks,

  7. Turn "Export for Screens..." into a processing powerhouse for screens and print alike

    Why limit exporting to screens? Many graphic design workflows require assets for both screen and print. A user should be able to pick and choose (and save) all kinds of combinations of formats, dimensions, resolutions, and naming conventions for exporting.

    PNGs, JPGs, EPSs (Please add), PDFs, TIFFs, GIFs, SVGs, etc.

    This could be such a timesaver, and go a long way to help restore faith in Adobe CC.

  8. Illustrator can not save with Apple SMB and show column preview on

    Hi
    On Mac, Illustrator can not save with Apple SMB and "show column preview" turned on.

    File says "Illustrator is unable to save this document... due to some unexpected errors"

    Illustrator and photoshop, please change your code to work on Apple SMB. Apple confirmed they will not change their code to fix Adobe cross platform app issues saving.

  10. Don’t tell me I can’t save a document because it is saving

    I'm going back to the 2019 version. There are no benefits that I can find to using 2020. First of all, there's the issue of it telling me every time I try to do save-close that it can't close the document until it's done saving it. YES, I KNOW that - I simply don't want to sit here and wait on it, I've got other things to do.

    And on top of that, none of my fonts look pretty and clean like in 2019 and every previous version of illustrator.

    I WON'T be going back to 2020 until you can…

  11. Apply For Digital Cutter To Connect With AI Format Cutting File Directly

    Hi, Good day!
    I'm David Jia from Sinajet Tech. We are a digital cutter manufacturer for sign industry.
    More our customers have AI format cutting file, now they need to transfer AI to DXF, and send DXF file to our digital cutter for cutting process.
    We hope our cutter can connect with AI format cutting file directly. Once I get AI format I/O or a DLL, then our digital cutter can work with AI format cutting file directly. It will be more convenient for customers.
    Please kindly let me know how to proceed.
    If you have any other request, please…

  14. Renaming Slices for Easier Export

    Since slices allow us to optimize to a set file size, we use sliced artboards at work to quickly create/export jpegs for the Google Display Network and for our sites. We've made the process pretty seamless with solid templates, but the only thing we haven't figured out how to do is rename the slices. The default is FileNameSliceNumber, but that slice number doesn't help us see the dimensions at a glance. If in our template we could rename slice "04" to "728x90" or whatever custom descriptor was necessary, we wouldn't need to manually change the slice name when…

  15. Batch File Processing to PDF (Non-Illustrator Default Like PDF-x4)

    In Photoshop, you have the option to File > Scripts > Image Processor — from there, you can then take a PSD File and batch through a folder of files and change them to a JPEG, PSD, or TIFF while simultaneously running an action through them.

    I propose that we introduce something like photoshops Image Processor where in illustrator you can select File > Scripts > File Processor where you have the option to change an entire folder of AI files into PDF's, SVG's, or EPS's.

    Once you click "Run" (like you would in photoshop) it would batch through an…

  16. FXG

    Please bring back FXG.
    SVG is no solution for coworking with complex files in Flash and Illustrator.
    Since years i've installed old cs6 version of Flash and Illustrator only for the FXG export / import.

  17. Please Warn when saving working file to PDF without AI edibility

    I was working on a file for half the day - making layers, groups and text styles. I had it all the way I wanted it, ready to add some translated text tomorrow. I saved and closed, not realizing that the original file I opened was a PDF that had be saved without Illustrator editing.
    The result was that everything was collected into one layer with nested clipping paths, and all my carefully formatted text was broken apart. (a few random lines were even converted to outlines)
    Yes, it's my fault for not saving as AI at the start of…

  20. Author's metadata with new Illustrator file

    Simplified way to add author to the file. Maybe even link to the CC account.
    Sometime we have question from sales department Who made this file i found in my inbox? But we do not remember:) The simplest way of course is auhors metadata. It could be handled in a way color profiles are handled, or similar.
