  1. Can you please make a default artboard 13 x 19 size. Most screen printers use this size?

    typing in a new art board size every time AI is opened is a pain. 13 x 19 inch is a common film size that a lot of screen printers use. It would save time to pick that size as a default rather than filling it in as a custom board all the time

  2. Maintain Word style

    When I paste an italicized Word font into the Illustrator, it becomes plain text.

    I'd like to see Adobe improve this feature so that you can "copy and paste" while maintaining Word's italics and other styles.

  4. Ability to create a new document

    I want to create a new document and not one from a template. Please add "Create New Blank Document".

    I use this for mobile games and don't think it's fair I have to revert back to Legacy to just create a quick ai file to edit and go.

  7. Delete artwork together with artboard

    There are times you want to delete artworks and the artboards as well. It would be lovely to do both in one command.

  9. Can we have master artboards for Illustrator, the way we do for In Design??

    I do so much illustration on my projects that it's not practical to use In Design for layout, so I use Illustrator for everything and it's almost perfect. The one thing I find I'm consistently missing is the ability to assign templates to certain artboards (like a master artboard.) I can't use "paste to all artboards" for this, because often I am doing book format with A/B. Sometimes, I'm doing student/teacher guides where the looks need to be differentiated.

    Can we get the ability to assign some artboards to another so that they can update dynamically if we change them…

  10. Document Color Mode - add option of Grayscale

    I need to make a lot of documents that must print in one color. I truly wish Illustrator offered a Document Color Mode of Grayscale - that mode would prevent use of color in any object created in ai, and would convert anything Placed, imported, or otherwise part of the document as Grayscale. It would also be good to have an "Open As" Grayscale option...

  11. Don't automatically lock new template layers

    It would be useful when creating a new template layer it did not immediately become locked. Usually, I would want to put items on this layer like notes or reference marks, but unlocking the layer seems like an unnecessary step for a layer that has just been created.

  12. Drop new artboard where you want it

    In previous versions of AI, you could choose where you wanted to drop a new artboard. Now it just dumps it in the middle of the screen. This is problematic because when you go to drag it to a new location, it often grabs items from existing artboards and drags them along with it. I have no idea why you changed this feature, but it is a daily frustration. And judging from the forums, I'm not the only one that hates it!

  13. Adding Pages/Sheets like in Excel for better organization of large jobs

    Adding Pages/Sheets like in Excel for better organization of large jobs. I work at a sign company and frequently come across large jobs that I would like to keep organized.

    For example let's use a job I am on right now. It is a job for hospital signage. Over 500 signs in total and let's say 15 departments. Some departments have upto 20 signs. While artboards work well in this instance it would be nice if I could have the option to organize the departments with "sheets" instead of individual files. My reasoning behind this is when I have to…

  14. A 3D presentation of layers and of artboards would deconstruct the fusion of all those into one 2D screen. Gaming software does iit.

    A 3D presentation of various containers (artboards, layers, groups) would show the composition of the various containers into what is currently a 2D screen. Gaming software does it.

  15. Comprehensive Design Theme

    An comprehensive theme which contains a preset colors for all type of projects, along with selective fonts for specific client/brand.

    This feature can be used across all apps and will be adapted automatically.
    For example: It will automatically use the presets RGB colors for web and video projects, then for web design project it will also select the theme "predetermined safe/web fonts". And when you're starting a print project, this feature will automatically use the presets CMYK and PMS (if available) colors with the theme's predetermined fonts.

    As an added feature, there would be an AI inverted (dark) theme. I…

  16. Expand 'move artwork with artboard' to include rotation.

    Currently 'move artwork with artboard' covers move and copy only. It would be great if it could also lock the artwork to the board as it rotates.

  19. In version 24.02 problems with the file information

    Hello, in Illustrator version 24.02 I have problems with the file information. Now the title is not saved anymore, I always have to enter it afterwards via Bridge. Also the creation date is no longer saved in the EPS files. When I enter this via Bridge, I always get an error message: "There is a problem with the file. "

    It would be great if you could change this.

  20. New Document Modal displays nothing on first install

    After first installing Ai 2020 and hitting Cmd+N to create a new document, the modal defaults to the recents tab which is not populated yet and therefore does not offer an option or button to create a new document. Once you go to a different tab and choose a preset it will display it in recents. But for the first time it should probably default to another tab or at least offer you a button to create a new document.
