  2. Illustrator CC 2019 (oct) NOT as default program for file extension .doc

    Just upgraded to Creative Cloud 4.7.0.400, from 24.09.2018 on Windows 8.

    Weirdly my E-Mail client suddenly opens .doc-files in Illustrator CC. I checked Windows 8's default program setting for file extension .doc ... it's still set to "Word". The E-Mail client (Opera Mail) is pretty slim and itself has no way of setting file extension behaviours - it's depending on the systems settings.

    The Bridge's file extension dialog in Bridge settings does not list .DOC files, so it's not set to illustrator there either.

    However if i go into windows file extension settings again, highlight .doc and click "edit program"…

  3. 2018 Illustrator CC is crazy slow / extreme lag on fast touchbar mac

    AI is extraordinarily slow to do anytlhing, even select tools, or draw or duplicate objects. I have a very fast computer:
    2016 MBP 2.9ghz intel core i7
    16gb ram
    radeon pro 460
    running OS 10.13.6
    I have 60gbb free of space on my SSD.

    I haven't worked in AI for several years, but I'm deeply familiar with PS, and I'm following a tutorial on how to draw a geometric shape. So thats what I'm doing in the project. Very simple stuff.

  5. ADOBE!! I have a request. Would you consider creating a T-shirt making app for Illustrator? It would be great to be able to design your layo

    ADOBE!! I have a request. Would you consider creating a T-shirt making app for Illustrator? It would be great to be able to design your layout, take a look at your sample, then send to a printer to print! It's a thought 😀

  7. Instrument to to make objects equal size

    For example I have 20 logos and I want to select them all and set width to 30 px. Hight schould be scaled proportional. The "Transform each" command does not allow to specify a size. So I have to type 20 times the required values for each object.

  9. Illustrator CC Desktop App need the Photoshop CC Desktop App feature that 3D Workspace, sketch and painting with 3D Layers in 3D Mode.

    I think that the 3D Workspace, sketch and drawing (in Illustrator CC Desktop App) with 3D Layers in 3D Mode is the modern 2D creative design App must-have feature today. The Photoshop CC Desktop App feature is being used by more and more designers in 2D creative design, look! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZydZ72iUKDQ

  10. Recent change to transform function is anti-intuitive.

    I have used Illustrator since version 1.11 and the shift key has always been used to constrain angles and proportion in drawing and transforming. suddenly without notice in the latest upgrade the shift key has to be used to FREE transform and the default in the transform function is to maintain proportion or constrain movement to 45 or 90 degrees. This is against the habits of 30 years use. I have also noticed that in the Option>scale function the highlight which used to default to the angle value no longer does so requiring addition keystroking. Not helpful.

  12. Make Adobe Illustrator app available in Thai

    Please make Adobe Illustrator app available in Thai. I think it will be better for Thai users to be able to use Adobe Illustrator app in Thai language.

  13. WHY ARE YOUR COLOR MODE SETTINGS SEPARATE BUT CALLED THE SAME?

    SO YEAH, THERE IS A SEPARATE COLOR MODE IN THE DOCUMENT COLOR MODE.....SEPARATE AND DIFFERENT FROM THE COLOR MODE IN THE COLOR WINDOW.

    WHAT PURPOSE THIS DESIGN CHOICE WOULD SERVE, IS BEYOND ME.

    WHAT DOES THAT ACTUALLY DO? WHY WHY WHY WOULD ADOBE MAKE IT SO CHANGING YOUR DOCUMENT COLOR MODE IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FUNCTION THEN CHANGING THE COLOR MODE IN THE "COLOR," WINDOW? WHAT PURPOSE DOES THAT SERVE? WHY DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? IT JUST MAKES ME WANT TO TEAR MY EARS OFF AND POKE MY OWN EYES OUT.

    CAN SOMEONE PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.....FOR THE…

  14. Max value for bar chart

    I would like to be able to automatize bar chart max and have an idicator that the value is over the end of the bar like we can see on this page:
    https://absbullsearch.absglobal.com/details/bull/94HO18700/Dairy/CAN/HOLSTEIN/EN/USA/CAN

    I've been in contact with your support team and he told me it is currently impossible.

    Thanks,

  15. automatic update of chart data

    Update charts as source data changes or is amended. In the case of Excel the link would replicate how InDesign does it, but additionally allow the import of a range that is too big - empty cells are ignored. This would allow for appended data, in the case of a time series.

  17. Please, please renew the diagram tool in illustrator

    Please, update and renew the diagram toll in illustrator. The tool isn't state of the art and needs renewing (preview function, better handling with numbers, more options, less bugs). I make infographics for many years and also teach infographic design, but the possibilities in Illustrator are unfortunately insufficient.
    Many users are waiting and waiting for an update. It would be a great help to designers if the diagram tool could be renewed. Illustrator is a great application, but the diagram functions are not good.
    Thank you very much

  19. Corrupted files

    I made numerous Adobe Illustrator files (featuring line drawings of clothing) that got corrupted. I had spent a few hours creating my drawings with the Adobe Illustrator software (saving copies along the way) but when I went to open the files to continue working on them they had all corrupted; leaving me with blank documents only showing a rectangular selection box. (Please find two examples attached.)
    Are you able to fix this and/or tell me how to retrieve my files?
    Thank you.

  20. シンボル編集モードでのレイヤーオプションの保存がされない

    シンボルを作成後、配置されたシンボルをダブルクリックしてシンボル編集モードにし、レイヤーオプションのカラー(パスを選択したときに表示される色)を変更する。
    シンボル編集モードを一旦終了し、再度編集モードに入ると、変更状態が保存されていない。
    シンボル編集時にパスの選択時のカラーが見にくい場合、編集モードに入るたびにカラーを編集しなければいけない。
