  1. Overprint black: ignore groups

    This may be brought up elsewhere, but I've tried to give it a clear title.

    Currently, when setting overprint to 100k strokes (for example), Illustrator may not display/apply the overprint for grouped objects, making the user have to find the erroneous objects, then ungroup them.

    Overprint slows Ai down a lot, making this task a real headache, so it'd be lovely if this were sorted in the menu.

  3. Alignment marks for Screen print

    Is there any way you can add a feature that would allow a novice screen printer the option to select a center mark and bleeds?

  4. Adding overprint toggles in the Separations Preview window

    Currently, the overprint toggles are only in the "Attributes" panel but the overprint preview toggle is in the Separations Preview panel. Including overprint toggles in the Separations Preview panel allows the user to see the overprints in the file and toggle off/on any visible overprints prior to exporting/printing. This would save on workspace real estate by choosing to exclude the Attributes panel solely for overprint toggles.

  6. Remember printer settings with Print Presets

    I have two sets of print settings-- ones that are program specific (Ex: created in Illustrator from the Print Presets window), and ones that are printer specific (Created in the Printer/Setup window within the Print dialog in Illustrator, InDesign, etc).

    In InDesign, if I create a print preset and then, via the Printer window, select an in-printer preset, InDesign remembers this choice and from then on printing with that InDesign preset will ALSO use that in-printer preset. In illustrator, that's not the case: Illustrator retains no memory of in-printer presets when creating in-program profiles, so I have to manually select…

  11. Repositionable register targets in Separations

    Not exactly a new idea. This used to be a feature back in Illustrator 3. Printers' marks used to be able to be added and deleted at will

  13. Guías inteligentes Illustrator

    (Español)Hola! Me gustaría que incluyeran en las próximas actualizaciones una manera que se puedan imprimir las guías inteligentes cuando creas un archivo Illustrator (ai.) y guardas como en (pdf.) Sin la necesidad de ir tirando lineas en el mismo documento que estás trabajando sobre las guías inteligentes. Con el fin de que se vean las guías inteligentes en el documento pdf. Espero que la incluyan, sería una gran mejora.

  14. Fix Black Overprints

    Fix the appearance of black overprint so that other colors are visible under solid black when overprint preview is on (unless I'm missing something, this used to work in older versions).

  16. Maintaining colour levels between PS & AI on linked files??

    Issue: linked PS(CMYK) file into AI(CMYK) appears in AI with difference colour values from the original PS file.

    Only way around it I was told by Adobe is to directly "open" the PS doc in AI not "place" to maintain the colour values. They also had told me that this is the expect behaviour of the software.

    I feel this is a serious flaw for files for print, I have always used AI to set up my packaging print files and never had an issue I think this must be a recent update.

    Does anyone known of a work around…

  17. Better Colour Separations

    Illustrator does not print all Photoshop DCS (.eps) colour separations since CS6. It always returns a blank plate.
    As a Screen printer, it would be nice to have seamless colour separations for my RIP.

  18. automatic trapping plug-in would be a great step forward.

    An automatic trapping feature, or a plug-in to that effect, would be of great convenience when submitting files for output.

  19. convert low res images to high res

    I'd like an option to convert a low res image eg. 72 dpi which can be converted to a high res image 300 dpi for printing in one click.

    Currently, you would have to redraw the image to create a higher resolution. image for printing which can be time-consuming. People are always giving you a web resolution (72 dpi) and wanting you to create print documents using it. This would be a huge technological win for all designers everywhere.

  20. SET OVERPRINT TO GROUPS OF DIFFERENT OBJECTS

    Second Time i have to adress this, Grouped objects, Set the group to over print, yet some of hte objects do not accept this setting as a group , only by ungrouping the mixed objects i can achieve a safe overprint setting, no other version before this one had this ERROR and its in fact dangerous to my worl as a finished artist when i can not trust my software to do what i set it to do.
