  1. Previous versions of illustrator showed the id of individual elements withing layers in the layers window.

    Previous versions of Illustrator would show the id of individual elements within layers in the layers window. Now they just show as "path" or "compound path." I generate maps as svg files from a database with a program of my own design and then import them into Illustrator for final editing. Sometimes there is a problem with one or more elements. Before I could go to Illustrator, select the problem element, and see in the layers window what its id was. Then I could go to my database and fix the problem. I can't do this anymore. I'm attaching a…

  2. Better Add Anchor Points function

    1. When adding to a curved segment, the new anchor points should be smooth, not broken.

    2. Add a function to define the number of points added per segment.

    3. Let the function work on a selected segment (it now always picks the complete path, adding points to all segments).

  6. Design Notes, as with Dreamweaver.

    To help to keep track of which layers/objects are used as 'controls'. e.g. I am currently designing a new logo. One particular layer that controls the outer borders needs to change from 2px stroke to 3px stroke depending on whether the background is black or white.
    Also, just having notes to explain what 'is' and why 'it' is together with what it is actually for i.e. its' function is extremely helpful and a must for technical files.
    It's obviously better to be able to refresh my memory with the appropriate notes instead of having to meditate for half an hour…

  7. remember sign in password

    It would be nice to have a remember password function. Why do I have to put in my password every time I open illustrator? Infuriating.

  8. Please restore "Lettering" in the Trace presets. I cannot match prior documents with the new advanced settings.

    I trace documents of text to be made into glass etchings and the previous "Lettering" preset in CS 5.5. Illustrator was perfect but the new sliders don't produce results as clean as previously.

    Too small to use?
    When scaling down a complex drawing especially one created by image trace it often says cannot complete the operation because it would make some objects too small to use. So how can i scale my group? Can you just disappear those objects? If they are too small to use they must be too small to see so make them go away. Or it could automatically select them so you have the option to delete them. It seems silly that i can't make something the size i need because a part of it is too small to…

  10. Keyboard shortcuts Flip

    I flip vertically and horizontally quite often. It'd be very nice to have a shortcut for it. I currently have to create a custom action for it, but that ends up using one of the F1-F14 keys which are inconvenient to use.

  12. In Variables - "Data set " Name needs to be taking from external CSV file the same way as from XML file. Case Number ADB-6495411-N0N4

    In Variables - "Data set " Name needs to be taking from external CSV file the same way as from XML file. Manual provides ZERO help.
    Function does not work.
    Meaning that Printing automation NOT exist and multiple output files renaming from default "DATA SET 1..2..3."manually - undermine whole "VARIABLE" function.

    Please HELP

  13. Keyboard Increment per document type

    Under Preferences > General it is possible to set the "keyboard increment" - how far each tap of an arrow key moves the selected art. The problem is, I want this to be different depending on what I'm doing.

    It would suit me ideally if I could set the keyboard increment to 5mm when working on a print document (CMYK/300DPI) and 10px when working on a digital document (RGB/72DPI).

  14. Problems with Illustrator crashing when printing ink separations as a PDF

    I'm having problems with Illustrator crashing when printing ink separations as a PDF. I didn't have the issue before, but now I am. Thankfully I'm able to print my separations to the RIP just fine, so work can progress. However when I try to print separations as a PDF to look them over before sending to the rip, the program freezes and eventually crashes. Does anyone know why this happens and how it can be resolved?

  16. Align between guides option

    The option to align between the two closest guides would help greatly when working on a multi-column document. Currently the only way to align to a single section of an artboard is to draw a box and align to that. Aligning to guides would streamline that quite a bit
