  1. "Edit Artboards" button in top toolbar

    The quickest way I have found of getting to the "edit artboards" state is to:

    1. click "document setup" in the top toolbar (when the toolbar decides it wants to show that option; i know it's based on the tool i choose but I really would love for that button to always be there),
    2. then a dialog box opens
    3. then I click "edit artboards".

    Usually what I'm wanting to do when I do that process is to move or resize artboards by clicking and dragging.

    There is also a "preferences" button that I NEVER use in the toolbar, and basically every…

  2. Be available to add more than 1000 artboards

    We are creating a document with icons. Each icon has it's own artboard because of exporting to multiple sizes. Currently we have about 1500 icons and we would like to have all the icons in one document because of effective work with them (which is now not possible because of 1000 artboards limitation).

  4. New Artboard Automatically Generated - No Preview Available

    When a new artboard is generated, it is now automatically placed to the right of the active artboard. Previously, generating a new artboard would show a preview and allow me to place wherever I wanted.

    I work frequently with nested artboards, and when I want to create a new artboard within the active artboard, I am taken away from the area I am viewing, which is frustrating. I now have to zoom out, turn off 'move with artboard' so that no art is interrupted, move the new artboard to the area I originally wanted it to be in, zoom in…

  5. Could you please add similar artboard settings or features like Photoshop?

    I generally use Adobe illustrator for App design and find it annoying on how illustrator artboards are too close together. Could you guys add the artboard settings from Photoshop into to illustrator? I just like the spacing and the naming system defined by Photoshop. It allows for a nicer looking work space.

  6. Artboard Resizing

    Would like to be able to resize the artboards in both directions with a preview.
    I'm sometimes having an issue where I can't resize the artboard in both directions x & y. Also now there is no preview for this operation like in previous versions.

  7. Allow to see full name past artboard extent / Don't truncate artboards' captions

    The artboard name is restricted to the size of the artboard, which truncates the name and makes it illegible. Better logic would be to only shorten the name if it collides with another artboard name.

  8. Angled Guidelines

    I'm working on a typography piece right now and my guidelines look like this (see attached.) The black lines are straight strokes. I think it would be really neat to have an option for angled guidelines, so I don't have to mix vertical/horizontal guides with strokes.

  9. When in pixel perfect mode (making PNG's), it would be nice if print reflected this.

    By now the prints are in vektor and do not reflect the works...

  10. Please make the slicing more like Fireworks with naming and sizes individual for each artboad (like stages/pages in Fireworks).

    Currently I can not export bitmap icons with the the right names and in the right sizes as in Fireworks including padding.
    And when I go to another document for a different platform (an app), I have to include the different sizes again.
    Also I have no preview like in legacy before I overwrite the old picts.
    Making graphics for mobile devices, your presets are based on the lowest resolution (@1). Some user control please...
    Bring back Fireworks...

  11. The process of making icons design is made easier in Adobe Illustrator CC.

    When an illustrator or designer designs a collection of pictograms or icons designs they must arrange artboards in large quantities for different icons design according to the needs of the web, apps, and other products. Adobe Illustrator CC must provide special needs for artboard settings to facilitate the process of designing a collection of pictograms or icons design with large numbers to suit many needs such as for web, apps, games, favicons, etc. Facilitate the work process becomes lighter and faster.

  12. 100 artboards

    Over 100 Artboards please. This has been talked about for 3 years now to no avail.

    I'm creating UI and it requires more that 100 pages. Why are we being constrained?

  13. Show slices names

    I'm looking for a simple but very useful option for slices:
    "Show slice name"

    Currently in setting of Illustrator there are only option:
    "Show slice numbers", - file attached.
    But it's doesn't give me anything actually.
    I've created names for each slice and I need to check these names visually, without need to select each slice and goto it slice settings..
