  1. Chromebook compatibility

    Hello,

    My school is considering purchasing a laser cutter/engraver to be housed in the Library for all students to use, and I understand that we will also need to purchase software such as Adobe Illustrator. The problem is that many of our students use Chromebooks, which really don't have a hard drive. We're not in favor of just having 1 or 2 Windows machines sitting by the cutter/engraver, mostly because that limits usage. Is there any other option? Does Adobe offer a Chromebook-compatible software? Or, is there any way that a student could design something in another program, then import…

  2. 【要望】境界にジャギが発生するのを改善して欲しい

    CC2015から2017にアップデートしてから、
    Aiで作成したデータにpsdファイルをリンクしてサイズを縮小すると、
    pdf保存をした際やaiファイルをPsから直接開いた際、
    透明の境界にジャギが発生するようになりました。

    Aiでの作業中は特に境界が見えることはなく、あくまでそのファイルを
    pdf保存またはPsから直接開いた場合のみに限ってのことです。

    ※「書き出し」からpsd形式にした場合はジャギが発生しませんが、
     アンチエイリアスのかかり方が気に入らないためできればAiで
     完成させたデータをそのままPsで開きたいです。
    ※以前のバージョンでも縮小したリンクファイルのあるAiデータを
     pdf化するとファイルの境界にジャギが発生していましたが、
     pdfだけだったため作業に支障はありませんでした。

    psdファイルを原寸で作成して原寸でリンクすれば良いのですが、
    レイアウト段階では大きいサイズでリンクして最終的に使用するサイズに
    縮小することが多いので可能であれば以前のバージョンのように
    直接Psから開いてもジャギが発生しないプログラムにできないでしょうか。
    文章での説明だとわかりにくいため、サンプルを作成して添付しました。

    古いバージョンのようにpsdファイルにパスを作って透明部分をカットし、
    epsファイルに変換してリンクすればジャギは発生しませんでしたが、
    それだと操作性・効率が悪く非常に作業がしにくいです。

    今のところリンクファイルにPs側で少し光彩をかけて境界をぼかすと
    ジャギが発生しないことがわかったためそれで対応していますが、
    光彩をかけられないデザインの場合もあるため対処に困っています。

    自分で解決策が見つけられればと思い色々と検証してみましたが、
    効果的な方法を見つけることが出来なかったので、
    次回以降のアップデートで改善して頂けると大変ありがたいです。
    もしOS側の問題(Wondows8や10なら発生しない)のようでしたら
    その旨をアップデートの際ユーザーに送られるメールなどに
    記載して頂けると助かります。


    検証バージョン
    OS:Windows7
    Ps:Photoshop CC 2017

    Ai:Illustrator CC 2017

  4. Isolate Selected Objects without having to group them

    In my work flow, I find I would like to isolate more than one object for something, and not necessarily a whole layer. Currently I have to group two or three objects first to do this. I'd like to see being able to isolate selected objects without having to group them first.

  5. Selection panel - supercharged customisable selection options


    • A new Select panel.

    *User-defined search permeameters with logical operators, and access to all relevant properties and object types in the document object model. Ability to extend and refine a search by multiple parameters.

    *User-defined labels for objects, with which users can create their own custom searches (eg. ”figure”, ”house”, “red team”, “platform” etc.).

    This would make me A Happy(er) Bunny.

  6. Rotation center point remains with objects and groups, and is used when rotating an object using the bounding box controls.

    I want to be able to permanently edit (and reset) an object's (or group's) rotation axis (centre point). I want the new rotation axis to apply for subsequent rotation transformations, for example when using the bounding box controls.

    Currently, the rotation tool (r) allows you to pick up and move an object's centre, and then rotate the object around that point. Great, except that point disappears as soon as you exit the rotation tool, which isn't very helpful.

    I'm told Corel Draw had something like this... I can't overstate how much power and efficiency it would add to my workflow.…

  7. "Check Spelling" Back or Undo Last Button

    Add a back button or Undo Last button in the "Check Spelling" dialog box. Many times I accidentally skip a word that needs correction and I have to restart "Check Spelling" from the beginning.

    Other times I accidentally pick the wrong correction and have to quit "Check Spelling" undo the fix and restart the process all over again.

    Thanks!

  8. Make Illustrator PDFs more automatically accessible

    Accessibility is incredibly important. Obviously Adobe wants to help but it is incredibly limited in Illustrator. If you supply multiple artboards, character and paragraph styles and great text placement options, you should make the PDF export carry those options through. What's the point of using InDesign when you only have two pages? Who needs to files for every project?

  9. Keyboard shortcut to hide/show selected Layer

    Option to assigne a keyboard shortcut for hide/show selected layer. Currently you have to click on the eye icon, which is pretty cumbersome. (for eg Photoshop has this feature, I think).

    (I'm on a project where you need to trace this huge sketch with ready made elements and so toggle layer visibility is a fast way to see how things are aligning.) Cheers!

  10. template location

    Custom templates, etc. should not have to be stored in the application folder... which means I'm throwing away user-generated documents when I upgrade the app.

  11. Objects snapping to objects from other artboards.

    I hope this is the right location for this. It may be more of a feature request. When trying to utilize the smart guides to align two objects be dragging, often times the object I am dragging will snap to objects from other artboards. This forces me to select the objects that I want aligned, choose a key object, then go to align panel to make sure they are lined up properly. Snapping to the nearest object or something along those lines would make the most sense. Or maybe setting to allow this.

  12. Select Same Size

    The Select Same Color, Appearance, Opacity is quite helpful. Add a new option for Size. The area size of the current selected element would be calculated and then used to find other similar objects within the document that meet that same area size.

    A tolerance up or down or range could be provided as well. It would also be helpful to offer a setting for "Select Anything this size and smaller/larger".

    This kind of feature would be very helpful when attempting to clean up an illustration generated from a live traced sketch.

  13. Folders for symbol

    There should be a way to organize all symbols (i often use more then 30 symbols per document), it gets very messy in the symbol window. It would be so much easier to organize and keep track of everything with the ability to create folders in the symbol window.

  14. Copy the style of stroke when using eyedropper tool

    When I use the eyedropper tool on a stroke with arrowhead, the full style does not get copied - only color and weight (not arrowhead). I think it is expected for the arrowhead to get copied too, just like the color AND font get copied when you use the eyedropper tool on text.

  15. edit color of text in symbol instance

    I think it should be possible to edit the color of text in a dynamic symbol instance, just like it possible to change the color fill of any other element

  16. More advanced 'Add Anchor Points' function

    'Add Anchor Points' is quite archaic at the moment. My requests:
    1 Apply it to selected parts of paths, in stead of the complete path.
    2 Add a dialog to set the number of subdivisions
    3 Add a keyboard shortcut

  17. Better controls for blends

    ... and above all: working controls for blends. The existing controls often just don't work well. The in-between paths don't look as desired at all. On top of that controls like increasing/decreasing the density of in-betweens along the blend path would be nice.

  18. 単位の自動切り替え機能

    カラー形式によって文字や線の単位を自動で切り替えてくれる、もしくは予めいくつか設定を保存しているものに切り替えるという機能が欲しいです。
    DTPとWebデザイン両方をIllustratorで行う場合、DTPはミリメートル、Webはピクセルと単位が異なるため、その都度環境設定から単位を変更するのが若干手間だと感じています。

    例えばアートボードのカラー形式によって単位を変更する機能があるととても便利です
    (CMYKに設定すればミリメートル、RGBならピクセルになるという風に)
    ご検討のほどよろしくお願い致します。

  19. The ability to increase the text size of any menu, pallete or dock item. Some of us are going blind.

    Give users more flexibility with the program interface please. This will help alot of people with eye strain.

  20. Pathfinder

    The Pathfinder window contains the ever useful 'Unite' - the menu option of Pathfinder does not (I would like to be able to create a custom keyboard command for the Unite feature).

    Thanks! and I just want to say that I've been using Illustrator since 1990. Love ya!
