  1. Colour Book/Pantone Swatches to remain in Custom Workspaces

    Hi - is there a way to have custom colour books/Pantone swatches to save in a custom Workspace? I have to keep adding them again each time I restart Illustrator, and it's a bit of a pain! Thanks!

  5. unlimited artboards for storyboarding to scale

    Storyboarding at 1920x1080 and I can only get 48 artboards. My computer can easily handle more. Why the limit - more please.

    If you need to have a larger canvas, you can force Illustrator to enable the 'large canvas mode' by entering the size larger than 227 in (or 16383 px). Ai will warn you the scaling mode gets enabled. Commit and change the size of your artboard to 1920×1080. Done, you now have a larger canvas (actually it means it’s scaled internally and you loose one fractional space, but for storyboarding it’s just fine).

  6. Masked object within a masked object?

    Is it possible to put a masked object (with clip) inside another mask? When I do this - the masked object within gets its clipped path released.

    One can apply a new opacity mask to an object that already has it, if you group this object first — then apply a mask to this container. However, if your object is a single group already, Illustrator won’t allow you to create another group (for obvious reason, to prevent an accidental 'group wrapping'). You can workaround it if you group it with a dummy object and delete it after, or use a free Group Anyway script: https://onthehead.com/ais/group003/
  7. Movie Clip symbol?

    When a Symbol is created, it defaults to 'Movie Clip'.
    Is that a legacy from the Flash era?

  8. ペンツールのカーソルについて

    ペンツールのカーソルが大きすぎて、使いづらいと感じています。
    カーソルを自由に選べるようにならないでしょうか…?
    (CS5のカーソルが使いやすかったです)

  9. Vector Importing for Library Assets

    I would like the option to be able to import vector CC Library Assets as live vectors (rather than as a link) in Illustrator.

    This is a vector editing software.....and the asset I'm grabbing from the library to bring in as a vector asset (and probably originally built in Illustrator).....why can't I have an alternate means (ex. Shift+Drag for import = import as live vector art) to be able to bring the asset in as an editable piece of art?

  10. Dynamic Swatch

    It would be awesome to link colors used in multiple places to a parent color swatch. When wanting to change every instance of a specific hex value you could make the change once and have them all update (similar feature in InDesign, I believe?)

  11. Select all the value at once

    Is it possible when clicking on a value such the shape, dimensions or text height etc. to select all the value so it can be replaced faster. Right now I have to delete the values number by number or select all with Ctrl-A then delete.
    It would be appreciated if you have the option to select all when clicking on it.
    It will save a lot of time.
    Thank you

  12. offset path feature won't become a sharp

    Why if I have a curve that has several very small (sharp) angles, when I enter it in the offset path feature (+ offset), then the offset result can't be sharp anyway. but if (-) is offset, then can it turn sharp?

  17. Add a "Ctrl +E" to illustrator for quick export

    InDesign has a "Ctrl+ E" for quick export instead of going down the menu bar and selecting it. Can illustrator put in a "Ctrl + E" for export. this is a annoyance since I'm exporting to jpg and tif formats all of the time from Illustrator for photoshop image adjustment

  18. 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.
