  1. Could you please add similar art board settings or features like Photoshop?

    I generally use Adobe illustrator for App design and find it annoying on how illustrator art boards are too close together. Could you guys add the art board settings from Photoshop into to illustrator? I just like the spacing and the naming system defined by Photoshop. It allows for a nicer looking work space.

  2. Artboard Resizing

    Would like to be able to resize the artboards in both directions with a preview.
    I'm sometimes having an issue where I can't resize the artboard in both directions x & y. Also now there is no preview for this operation like in previous versions.

  3. Navigator and Artboard bug

    Navigator doesn't move around and there are two "23" in Artboards. The number artboard 22 doesn't even appear

  4. Artboards should have a purpose

    1. What is the purpose of having an artboard if anything drawn beyond it shows up as part of your drawing? I exported an artwork as a png file and everything beyond the artboard showed up as part of the artwork. The workspace around the artboard should be able to be used for ideas that may be relevant to future versions of your art or to assist in creating your art.
    2. When I drew the attached image, I expected that anything beyond the artboard would not show as part of the artwork.

  5. Export Panel and exportting for artboard dont work

    I drag my icon to export panel and select svg. then hit export. A pop up appears only for half a sec and the export is not there. Same thing for exporting for screens; I select the artboard - export as svg and I select that it would make subfolders for me and show it after export. It opens the folder but its empty. This bug appeared after the latest update.I urgently need it to be fixed.

  6. Master Illustrator File Placed in Multiple Illustrator Files OR Export Selected Layers Palette

    In my line of work, we often time work in one single Illustrator file that has one basemap then multiple layers with each showing a specific thing separate from the other layers. However this gets tedious when exporting files where you have to select the layers you want, export as it's own name, deselect those layers and select the next batch of layers, export those under their own name, deselect those layers etc.

    What would be great is if Illustrator had the ability to have something like a Master Layer that can bring in a basemap Illustrator file to have…

  7. Angled Guidelines

    I'm working on a typography piece right now and my guidelines look like this (see attached.) The black lines are straight strokes. I think it would be really neat to have an option for angled guidelines, so I don't have to mix vertical/horizontal guides with strokes.

  8. When in pixel perfect mode (making PNG's), it would be nice if print reflected this.

    By now the prints are in vektor and do not reflect the works...

  9. Please make the slicing more like Fireworks with naming and sizes individual for each artboad (like stages/pages in Fireworks).

    Currently I can not export bitmap icons with the the right names and in the right sizes as in Fireworks including padding.
    And when I go to another document for a different platform (an app), I have to include the different sizes again.
    Also I have no preview like in legacy before I overwrite the old picts.
    Making graphics for mobile devices, your presets are based on the lowest resolution (@1). Some user control please...
    Bring back Fireworks...

  10. adapt default imperial/metric units to geolocation, or remember previous settings

    This relates to the procedure of creating a new document, so that there shouldn't be a need for changing system every time, to comprehend the dimensions of a document in usual units.

  11. The process of making icons design is made easier in Adobe Illustrator CC.

    When an illustrator or designer designs a collection of pictograms or icons designs they must arrange artboards in large quantities for different icons design according to the needs of the web, apps, and other products. Adobe Illustrator CC must provide special needs for artboard settings to facilitate the process of designing a collection of pictograms or icons design with large numbers to suit many needs such as for web, apps, games, favicons, etc. Facilitate the work process becomes lighter and faster.

  12. auto arrange artboards on new

    First, the workspace is Too **** small at this point, especially when working in pixels. And someone out there assumes 72dpi still. Stop it!

    I'm creating 4K artboards to explore some ideas. I create 2 of them. And it won't let me create a 3rd without rearranging. Who's idea was That!?!?

    The first thing you should do is just move the stinkin' workspace. What's with all the room on the left? Look, if you only work left to right, why are you always trying to center the artboards in the workspace? You'll never use the space above or to the…

  13. Show slices names

    I'm looking for a simple but very useful option for slices:
    "Show slice name"

    Currently in setting of Illustrator there are only option:
    "Show slice numbers", - file attached.
    But it's doesn't give me anything actually.
    I've created names for each slice and I need to check these names visually, without need to select each slice and goto it slice settings..
