  1. Corrupted files

    I made numerous Adobe Illustrator files (featuring line drawings of clothing) that got corrupted. I had spent a few hours creating my drawings with the Adobe Illustrator software (saving copies along the way) but when I went to open the files to continue working on them they had all corrupted; leaving me with blank documents only showing a rectangular selection box. (Please find two examples attached.)
    Are you able to fix this and/or tell me how to retrieve my files?
    Thank you.

  5. Let an application be associated with its files

    Let an Application take control of its files at button press. After latest update Acrobat took over for AI files and it'd be nice to just press a button and fix it in Windows 10.

    Currently manually trying to and Acrobat is fighting it.

  6. Transparent PNG linked into AI drawing

    I've exported transparent PNG's from Photoshop, and I'm trying to work on an Illustrator drawing with them, so I can eventually put them into my InDesign doc. So, I link in a PNG to Illustrator and it decides to read it as though it has a white background. So, naturally, I don't realize this because I'm working on a white artboard until I get into InDesign and the art is blocking the master, leaving me to go back into all my illustrator files to replace a linked file with imbedded artwork. What's the point of linking a file if it…

  7. Crash Report dialogue does not accept email address with hyphen

    Crash Reporter does not comply to email format standards. My email address contains a hyphen (nils.clark-bernhard@macio.de). Crash Reporter does not accept this address. Inserting a hyphen-free email address allowed me to send a crash report.

    More information about allowed email formatting can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_address

  10. Edit overlapped objects

    Some times when you use illustrator to edit PDF obtained from Cad programs, you get overlapped lines. It will be a good idea to have some filters to edit overlapped elements.

  11. Unit Error Fix

    Adobe Illustrator CC refuses to remember General Unit setting on Restarting the program it switches back to Points, even tho i set it to mm under Preferences - Units - General. This was never the case in any itterations of illustrator & should be categorized as an error fix rather than an improvement, i would like to see this changes asap as its rather disruptive

  12. The ability to select a vertical row within text to change color or make it bold.

    The ability to select a vertical row within text to change colors or style.

    We design a lot of restaurant menus, brochures, tv menus, and currently to make the items and prices have its own color or style, we either duplicate and erase items/prices to change color and style (bold for e.g.), or we change each line manually (which takes some time).

    Wish to see this in illustrator soon.

    Thanks

  14. Reset symbol rotation and scale independently

    It would be nice if we had the option to reset symbol transformations independently.

    For example, only the scale (keeping the same rotation) or only the rotation (keeping the same scale).

  15. Display the Shape parameters in toolbar regardless of display resolution or monitor size. My 15" MBP does not show H and W 27"iMac does

    My 15" Macbook Pro does not show H and W when a shape is selected. My 27" iMac does. There is enough space to show these parameters so why are they a drop down in that size display?
    I also work in Windows 10 but its a 27" monitor & they are displayed.

  16. aligment features

    Hey! Illustrator rocks!! I am a professionnal user and I have to tell you that the software is really awesome!!!
    As a graphic designer (specialized in UI) I have to align stuff all the time:
    1- I would like to to be able to align the text to x-height inside a box rapidly. ( for instance the words inside a button )
    2-It would be nice to be able to align the stuff that has been duplicated with the Transformation... tool
    For now in both case I would have to decompose a dupplicate of the transformed shape and manage to…

  17. BUG: image moves after embedding

    Embed image moves the image. See video.......again..

    Effects (mirror horizontally and vertically) had been applied to 3 of the instances.

    Win10, v22.1, 4k high DPI scaling 200%.

    This is apparently the only way to work with a singe path with more instances. Drop it in the cc library and re-place it again. That alone is just sad. Ever seen how SketchUp works? Please let me know if there is a normal way of doing this.

    Another hour wasted. How can anybody possibly work with this buggy pile of ****.

  19. Free Trial doesn't work if licensed version used previously.

    If a computer has ever had a licensed version of the product (like from a school, not a personal use), the free trial will not work FOR ANYONE EVER AGAIN ON THAT COMPUTER. Even if you sell your computer, the next person CANNOT USE A FREE TRIAL. Adobe does nothing to help.

  20. patterns

    Why is the pattern anchored to the art board and not the item? I often create shapes and apply a pattern (lets say a plaid) and I adjust the alignment of the pattern so that it is equal on all sides. If I then copy the shape containing the pattern so that I can then offer the client a different color combination of the pattern, I now have to nudge the pattern of the new shape to align properly again! Because the pattern is anchored to the art board not the shape.
