  1. Default overprint black text is missing in AI 2020 v24.2.3.

    Several generations earlier this feature was the default. Although type is filled black by default, it is NOW not set to overprint. I have to select all the black type and manually open Attributes panel and select "overprint fill." This is counterproductive.

  2. Copying text styles whilst still using text tool

    Can a better way of picking a text style other than using the picker tool as this takes you out of text editing mode which is really inconvenient especially when you have selected a text box which is several layers below another item. I would be really great if whilst I was in the text box I could use something like the Ctrl+Shift key to get the curser to change to the Picker tool so that I can copy an existing text style from nearby.

  4. Feedback on New Snap to Glyph(s) Functionality (Released)

    New Glyph snapping feature is available in Beta now.

    Snap to glyph(s) allows quick and precise alignment around contours of live text without the need of creating outlines or reference guides. You will see smart snapping guides for words and a line by default. You can also enable a single glyph mode by right-clicking on the targeted glyph.

    We have tried to provide as many important smart guides as possible without cluttering the workspace. We would love to hear your candid feedback. Please provide your feedback on this thread. This will be actively monitored by the Illustrator team. If you…

  6. Please make Optical Kerning the default instead of Automatic

    Please make Optical Kerning the default instead of Automatic.

    It's a draw on productivity when I have to change Optical Kerning to Automatic in each new document.

  7. Let Typekit have a narrow and tall font

    Typekit is missing a really basic, classic font:

    If you look at posters for movies like THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, you'll notice that the fonts often are 30-35% taller than any font that's available in typekit.

    So it would be super nice if Typekit could add something like that. It's really important if you're making movie posters...

  8. Add generic "sans-serif" font family option for text

    SVG is the accepted vector graphic format for the web. We need a way to be able to specify platform-independent fonts for environments such as the web where there are no specific fonts that are universaly available. SVG does this with the font-family style property:

    https://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_font_font-family.asp

    The Inkscape vector graphics editor offers a font-selector where you can choose either a specific font or a generic font-family like "serif", "sans-serif", "monospace", etc. The request is for Illustrator to offer a similar feature.

  9. NEW issue re: knocking out text.

    I've recently run into issues with knocking out text that I've never run into before. Certain letters aren't knocking out completely. Please see the attached and notice how the tops of the letter "T" on the left side of the box aren't completely cut out.

  10. Chinese Fonts

    Can Chinese fonts have a second "english" identifier associated with it in Illustrator and Photoshop. Per our client, we're using a very specific typeface to translate an english document into Chinese. In this case it's Source Han Sans CN.

    While it displays fine in ID, it was nearly impossible to locate in PD and AI

  13. Removing text style while keeping formatting

    I'd like to be able to remove a text object's style (in other words: unlink the text block from the style), but still keep the text's formatting as is.

    What usually happens is that, when you create new text blocks, for some reason, they automatically get the latest text style applied. If you don't pay attention, then you might create many text objects and format them manually (because they don't need to be linked to any specific style), and at some point, you realize that all these texts are linked to a certain style, and that's not what you intended…

  15. I am trying to display on Illustrator the diagraming of sentences. Here is an example: Constructing that image requires typing on a pat

    See attached file with a screen shot of what "Type on a path" might accomplish if the path were to be made visible on a project for diagramming sentences.

  18. Fix fonts in the symbol library

    When a custom-made symbol uses a font, the symbol is expanded and the fonts are eventually outlined, the fonts still show in the “Find Font” menu even know there is no editable text in the document.

  20. More easily work with text

    It would be great if like in PS we could select multiple text layers and apply changes to them at once. Like changing the font size or type, rather than having to go layer by painstaking layer :) What takes seconds in PS could take me HOURS in Illustrator :(
