  1. Mobile of this website has no linkback to other softwares

  2. Fix bugs in current version

    How about fixing issues in the current versions rather than adding them to new updates.
    I say this because not everyone can update to the newest OS
    When fixes are only available in the new updates that only work in the latest OS those that can no longer upgrade their OS will always miss out and have a defective application.
    This is common sense. Many studios can only buy new computers when old ones die or when new staff arrive.

  3. Clone or Populate text using variables

    Currently there is no 'automatic' way of entering repeatable variables into text fields. For example a date at the top of each page, or an incremental page number, or a formula etc. Can Illustrator please add maybe a custom field onto the existing variables panel?

    The main benefit would be for labelling or repeating document information across pages or in multiple places within a document.
    Example. I Create a header page with a date "January 2020" and a version number 'Ver 23'. I would add these two values to a custom variable palette and can then create linked text fields…

  4. Rotate individual objects by their own center when several objects selected.

    Currently if you select several objects, they rotate together based on the whole selection's common center.

  5. please add extended wordcount

    I need to count the number of words in a complicated diagram with a lot of text boxes.

    Grant proposals require a maximum number of words and they also count the number of words in graphs and illustrations. So please just tell me how many words are in a document so I don't have to select and copy paste hundreds of words out of textboxes into a wordcounter (or Indesign). That would be great in the future. This is tw also not possible in Indesign because you need to select the text to get a count, whereas I need to…

  7. False translation in preferences window

    In preferences window's unit section the "type" text is translated wrong.
    Type must be translated as "yazı" or "yazım" as in the top menu.

    The text "tür" must be corrected as "yazı" or "yazım".

  10. Variables issues with images paths

    Hi all,
    am currently using "Data merge using the Variables panel". The following article does not have enough information for me: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/data-driven-graphics-templates-variables.html
    The issue lies with the photos
    My photos are not stored locally but in our company's shared google drive folder
    So instead of having a link: C:\Photos\BillTucker.jpg this is how an image link would look like: /Volumes/GoogleDrive/My Drive/Automation/scljwhj2uqvn8ajetqhn.png
    From the article, I've understood that it can not contain blank spaces. I wanted to know if there was a way around and if other users have had this issue.

    Thanks in advance

  11. How to make Adobe software Ultimate Faster than ever ??????????!!!!- Solution is given below :

    One more important thing is SPEED and Performance of each Adobe software should be intensively Faster than ever. this mean programming language that are slowing down adobe software performance sholud be replace all codes with a very fast execution able programming language to speed up the intensive power and performance as all 3D software does like MAYA, CENEMA 4D etc....

    In that case, PYTHON can be the first choice ! Because Most of the 3d SOFTWARE are Python based and Powerful all software like google search engine uses python. Also Some powerful OS is also Python based as you know…

  13. Converting CAD into Illustrator

    Where I work, we often have to open CAD files into the Illustrator program. We would like to be able to use the existing lines that are presented in a CAD drawing, but when we open them, they are always in little "line segments," rather than full, complete Illustrator lines.

    The issue with this is that it slows down the computer, and we are ultimately unable to use the CAD file. Nothing converts into actual "shapes" that we can use, so we end up flattening the image and having to draw over it from scratch to get the image we…

  15. add point in simplify panel -click art with panel open

    with the object / path / simplify feature, it seems like the ability to quickly add a point to the outline by clicking on the artwork, while the panel is open for refinement. the feature in there 'show original outline' combined with this new recommendation would be a very intuitive way to refine a shape.

  16. I hope CS5.6 sale

    私はCS3使用時の機能要望をいくつか取り入れて戴いたCS5.5ユーザーです。
    CCは経済的負担が大きいので使っていません。
    Win10にCS5.5を入れましたが、特に問題なく使えています。
    CCになってからデザイン業界を除く個人ユーザーが更新しなくなり、
    古いバージョンのまま使っているユーザーが多いのは認識されているはずです。
    画面デザイン的に繫がりがあるのがCS5.5までで、
    CS6からは大きく変更になりました。
    OSが実質Win10だけになり、動作環境の面でバージョンアップを迫られているユーザーが多いはずですが、
    それでもCCは無理と考える人が大多数です。
    バージョンアップしたいユーザーが受け入れやすいCS5.5をベースに、
    パッケージ(売り切り)版を再販して貰えば、需要がある事は明らかです。
    ここで、最低2つの機能改善を行い、CS5.6としてリリースしてはどうでしょう。
    機能改善は、
    1.描画編集中などにナビゲーター画面が逐一全画面更新され、データが重いとスマートガイドやコピー&ペーストなどのキー動作が不安定になる。長い文字の入力編集中は特に酷い。これを極端な話、ナビゲータ画面に付けた「更新」ボタンを押すまで画面更新しなくていいようにする。
    2.現状、文字の縁取りが文字の塗りの上になっているが、文字の塗りの下に設定できるようにする。これで一々「文字を全てコピー」「背面ペースト」「縁取り設定」をやらずに済む事になり、データが軽くなり、修正も楽になる。なぜ今までこれが出来ないのか不思議と思える基本的な機能です。

  17. Implement adaptively-sampled distance field (ADF) technology for 2D drawing

    Please incorporate adaptively-sampled distance field (ADF) technology into illustrator's drawing tools. Adobe already licenses this technology for use in fonts, and Mischief the only 2D drawing software that incorporated the technology has been discontinued.

  18. Smart Object like in Photoshop

    Smart object for illustrator will be a nice feature. Also it will be awesome if both photoshop and illustrator can work with smart object. Currently, photoshop can handle (automatically convert files to smart object when placed, imported, copied in photoshop) vector/raster objects copied from illustrator document. But for some reason, illustrator doesn't have that feature. Would love to see smart objects/group in illustrator.

    Thank you Adobe.

  20. Fit art/object to selected art/object

    Just like you're able to fit the artboard to selected art. Is there a way to fit/scale an object/art to another object? Just scaling the first object to the second one, rather having to do it manually through transform or scale.
