  1. Customize suffix for duplicated artboards

    It would be great if the user could choose which suffix will be used for duplicated artboards. Instead of
    MyArtboard copy
    MyArtboard copy copy

    should be

    MyArtboard 1
    MyArtboard 2
    MyArtboard 3

    or

    MyArtboard A
    MyArtboard B
    MyArtboard C

  3. (Also for Indesign). Alignment groups

    Please add feature to add an item to a group, but not have it factor into movement when Aligning.
    Ie I have an item/group of items, and a Trademark symbol. Suggested new feature would Add the Trademark symbol to the group, but when aligning this new group the Trademark feature is not factored into positioning.

  4. Paste on all artboards/paste special Dialogue

    I would like to suggest expanding paste on all artboards command into a dialogue box. It could be really helpful in print designs having multiple artboards.

    1. Currently the command pastes the selected objects on all artboards present in the document, even the one they are copied from.
    in order to not have to delete duplicates manually you could make this new dialogue box show the list of artboards with check boxes which allows users to select which artboards to paste on.

    2. paste a library asset on selected artboards.

    3. like in flash/animate two open files could use each…

  5. Asset Export Incorrectly Clipping

    If you create a filled rounded rectangle with a 1 pt border, add it to the Asset Export panel and export, the end result is noticeably clipped. Even though the shape may be aligned to be pixel perfect and the stroke aligned so that it should be inside, the output shows the frame is now non uniform in terms of stroke width.

    If you didn't use stroke, you probably won't notice the inaccuracy.

    See the attached image and the edges are clearly truncated.

    Says there are some fundamental alignment issues that need to be addressed.

  6. Allow variable instances of symbols (or imported ai)

    I feel that the reason so many UI projects go Sketch instead of Illustrator is due to componentization of elements throughout the document in collaborative environments.

    I feel that Illustrator has much more power and could be used the same way, if only a few features were added.

    One of the most important is allowing the use of symbols as UI elements by enabling variable fields.

    Currently, I could make a component and save it as a symbol - but if I was to use it in multiple places, then I would need certain fields to be altered.

  7. Edit Artboard with Double-Click

    Enter the edit artboard with a double click instead of going through the whole process in order to resize and move the artboard

  8. Add option when creating New View to opt out from changing zoom level

    The custom Views is a godsend for complex artwork, but sometimes it would be nice to keep the zoom level and toggle only the Layers settings (visibility, lock status, etc). So either an option when saving the custom View, or a program-wide preference setting would be highly appreciated. In this way, the request for a layer visibility toggle shortcut could also be partially addressed.

  9. Show all tabs when switching to fullscreen mode

    When switching to Full Screen Mode I can only see the document I'm working with. Why not show all the open documents like tabs?

    I don't understand why the tabs disappear just because I'm switching to fullscreen.

  10. To be able to make Illustrator a 3D drawing software as well.

    I want to be able to have a 3D view of the artwork, because illustrator is based on paths I thought rather that it would be cool to navigate it in 3D.

  12. Smart Guides HUD says 'Interect', when snapping to the Center of the Artboard

    Since the introduction of Smart Guides, the info given when snapping to the center of the Artboard is incorrect. It says 'Intersect' in stead of 'Center'. This is confusing. We want to know if it is the Center we're snapping to.

  13. データの「情報を見る」で見れていた作成時のバージョンが見れなくなった。

    macユーザーです。イラストレーターCC2018 にアップグレードしたところ、今までデータファイルの「情報を見る」で見れていた作成時のバージョンが見れなくなりました。お客様とのやりとりでバージョンをお客様それぞれに合わせてダウングレードしていたので、簡易的に確認ができないと不便です。他に同様のアプローチができるようになっていたら教えていただきたいです。

  14. Create new artboard within other artboard with Shift key gone in 2018

    Just switched to Illustrator 2018. In 2017 I could create a new artboard on top of another artboard by holding down the shift key and dragging with the Artboard tool. This doesn't work anymore. I can create a new artboard outside of the existing one, but I need to create multiple artboards within one main artboard. I can create a vector box where I want them all, then go to Artboard window and click Convert to Artboards, but this is many more clicks than before...not very lean.

  16. "Edit Artboards" button in top toolbar

    The quickest way I have found of getting to the "edit artboards" state is to:

    1. click "document setup" in the top toolbar (when the toolbar decides it wants to show that option; i know it's based on the tool i choose but I really would love for that button to always be there),
    2. then a dialog box opens
    3. then I click "edit artboards".

    Usually what I'm wanting to do when I do that process is to move or resize artboards by clicking and dragging.

    There is also a "preferences" button that I NEVER use in the toolbar,…

  17. Linked Text 'Artworking Info' Panels/Tables

    When setting up artwork sheets, we often have to use the same job info across many artboards - it would be great to have 'linked' information/type, so when you update text in a textbox/panel on one artboard it will automatically update on other artboards.

    This could be done either by a table/panel which update, or being able to select individual pieces of info that you wish to auto-update.

    This would be a massive timesaver when artworking!

    Thanks!

  18. Be available to add more than 1000 artboards

    We are creating a document with icons. Each icon has it's own artboard because of exporting to multiple sizes. Currently we have about 1500 icons and we would like to have all the icons in one document because of effective work with them (which is now not possible because of 1000 artboards limitation).

  20. New Artboard Automatically Generated - No Preview Available

    When a new artboard is generated, it is now automatically placed to the right of the active artboard. Previously, generating a new artboard would show a preview and allow me to place wherever I wanted.

    I work frequently with nested artboards, and when I want to create a new artboard within the active artboard, I am taken away from the area I am viewing, which is frustrating. I now have to zoom out, turn off 'move with artboard' so that no art is interrupted, move the new artboard to the area I originally wanted it to be in, zoom in…
