  1. Allow a new feature to resize workspace so the page doesn't get hidden behind the dock

    Several of us on Adobe Forums experience the same issue for many years. Often times the workspace window gets hidden behind the dock, or even below the visible area of the monitor, there is currently no way to adjust this. I am trying to resize the window of my current workspace and I cannot. Bottom right corner not visible. It's a shame that after 18 years of using this application we still have basic issues like this. Please fix this as soon as possible. Thank you so much.

  3. SVG code for current document visible in non modal view

    When fine-tuning SVG files, the ergonomics of the workflow are far less than optimal. This is especially problematic because SVG supports only a subset of what is possible in Illustrator.

    A round trip to some other app, or viewing code via the export modal feels awkward and is certainly time-consuming. Worse, it takes me away from the main Illustrator editor where my art is actually visible/editable.

    Can't we have a panel which shows the SVG code 'live', without having to visit the file menu. It need not be an editable code view, but 'pretty printing' and perhaps code folding would…

  4. Could we have the standard paper sizes larger than A3 for artboards

  5. better selection

    It would be nice if I did not have to 'click' on a symbol or text numerous times to select it.

  6. Way to change "Custom" Document name

    Would love to be able to change this "Custom" name to something more descriptive. I have a few piece of equipment that I would like to be able to select quickly. For now I have to go through the hassle of templates which works well but is several other clicks. Would be nice to have a way to quickly create documents for those specific equipment types with preconfigured settings.

  7. Document setup with two or more measurement units

    I often work in both imperial and metric on documents, such as having a box be seven inches, but the minuscule die line details cut up in millimeters. So, it would be great if the Transform pallet displayed both, rather than one or the other.

  8. Changing Artbord from Portrait to Landscape: move and rotate object

    Changing Artbord from Portrait to Landscape do not rotate object correspond to artboard position.

    That can be helpful if we hav many objects on artboard

  9. How to open multi-page pdf in Illustrator on their newly-created artboards

    Hello,
    I have to place multi-page pdf's on a daily basis at work. The File, Open command let's me choose a pdf file and select which pages to open in Illustrator. It even has the option of opening them as links. This is great! Now, would it be possible to have Illustrator create artboards and populate them with pages from the pdf file? Perhaps through a dialog box? Thank you for your time!

  10. Create Working Version or Working Artboard

    Often times when working on a Logo or Design Project, I create type that I eventually turn into outlines for the final artwork -- and what my clients receive. It would be very convenient to have an Artboard within the document that does not print nor show up in a PDF, but remains in the native file. It would allow for "instant typography fixes" within the same document and a true "working" file during design phase.

  11. Select elements of a compound object in the Layers panel

    I don't understand why a compound object can't be expanded in the Layers panel to reveal its elements, and let me select and manage them. Just like I can see and select elements in a (clip) group, and cat go to into isolation mode with a compound. What's the rationale to prevent this ?

  15. Customize suffix for duplicated artboards

    It would be great if the user could choose which suffix will be used for duplicated artboards. Instead of
    MyArtboard copy
    MyArtboard copy copy

    should be

    MyArtboard 1
    MyArtboard 2
    MyArtboard 3

    or

    MyArtboard A
    MyArtboard B
    MyArtboard C

  17. Asset Export Incorrectly Clipping

    If you create a filled rounded rectangle with a 1 pt border, add it to the Asset Export panel and export, the end result is noticeably clipped. Even though the shape may be aligned to be pixel perfect and the stroke aligned so that it should be inside, the output shows the frame is now non uniform in terms of stroke width.

    If you didn't use stroke, you probably won't notice the inaccuracy.

    See the attached image and the edges are clearly truncated.

    Says there are some fundamental alignment issues that need to be addressed.

  18. Allow variable instances of symbols (or imported ai)

    I feel that the reason so many UI projects go Sketch instead of Illustrator is due to componentization of elements throughout the document in collaborative environments.

    I feel that Illustrator has much more power and could be used the same way, if only a few features were added.

    One of the most important is allowing the use of symbols as UI elements by enabling variable fields.

    Currently, I could make a component and save it as a symbol - but if I was to use it in multiple places, then I would need certain fields to be altered.

  19. Sort content in links palette + User controlled preflight warnings

    Added sorting ability in links palette would be very useful.
    Allowing me to sort by file size, alpha, date placed, date altered. Similar to finder or windows explorer. Allowing me to rearrange the columns to suit my needs.

    A preflight indicator of any potential conflicts would be a nice add as well.
    CMYK doc with an RGB image placed. Unused nodes swatches, does this doc contain any overprint items, that kind of thing. In a perfect world I could set in prefs what I want warnings for.

  20. Arrange all artboards reference point

    I don't understand which is the starting point of the arrange all artboards, I thought it was the 0 (zero) of the global rulers, but after the arrange all commands the top left artboard is not align with the rulers.

    Is there any answer to this or is it a bug?
