  3. Bug with stroke

    Hello! I got a bug. When you copy a shape to a new artboard, a stroke appears that cannot be deleted. It is superimposed over the usual stroke. And when you remove the fill and stroke, it remains. The same when reinstalling the program, this problem remains in this file.
    P.S. I worked in the latest version of illustrator

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. same artboard number within 1 file

    Why the artboards are numbered like this when it was fine in older versions. I need to export them in correct order as they contain writing steps. Now I missed some steps of the writings, this is very essential and crucial. The problem occurs on the other file too, exact number skipped and missing as well. #13, #17 missing with #15, #18 being duplicated the same...

  9. Carry decimals in the Artboard Size to ten thousandths

    Carry decimals in the Artboard Size to ten thousandths so it matches the Transform palette. Right now you can only view the accurate Artboard size in the Document Info palette.

  12. Rearrange expanded layers without collapsing

    When a layer has sublayers and/or it is expanded, it is currently impossible to drag a new layer below the expanded layer without collapsing it because the new layer is automatically made a sublayer of that expanded layer. The opposite works - new layers can be placed above even when not collapsed. Being able to see desired sublayers or content and arrange in both directions would be ideal.

  13. Exclude single object or layer from moving with artboard

    It would be great to exclude a layer or single object even with "move locked and hidden artwork with artboard" enabled. This allows for a more flexible approach when dragging artboards with and without artwork.

    Make it so guides do not count as part of the project so you get correct measurements when selecting all.

  16. Make it so guides do not count as anything when copying/pasting

    Make it so guides do not count as anything when copying/pasting. They stop you from placing objects at times.

  17. The Illustrator Toolbox should be able to display in a one-row horizontal position, like the InDesign Toolbox can

    Double-clicking the double-arrows on the upper-right corner of the Tool box will change the orientation from one-row-of-tools-vertically arranged, to two-rows-vertically arranged. InDesign does this as well, with the addition of a third way, one-row-of-tools arranged horizontally. This is by far the most useful way in my opinion and I really wish Illustrator and perhaps Photoshop too, had the same option.

  19. active artboard

    When we work on multiple artboards, it will be good to recognize the artboard who is used when I select a object or I click on a artboard and to active it.
    So when I select all elements in my document, with the keyboard shorcut, all of the objects of my active artboard will be selected. Or if I select an object every where, the artboard containing this object will be activated automatically.
    often, i select all objects on my first arboard but he's not active and when I paste in place in an other artboard of an other document,…

  20. Please consider resizing second artboard (14,400 x 14,400) on video presets

    While the second artboard on the video presets is incredibly useful so imported art doesn't get cut off in After Effects, it is unnecessarily large. I can't imagine that anyone is actively storing art to be animated from off screen 7,000 pixels above or below the main artboard. Many people think this artboard is a mistake, but it would be far more useful if it were about 3000x3000 in a 1920x1080 document. Hitting Cmd/Ctrl+1 to "Fit Artboard to View" often zooms out to show the gigantic artboard because it is automatically selected any time you click outside of the main…
