  1. Disable scale stroke on placed CC files

    We would like to have the option to disable the scaling of stroke in placed (linked) CC library files. Ie. if we scale the placed file 200% the stroke of the object in the file stays at 1pt instead of increasing to 2pt.

    We have a CC library with a large component library with various electronic and mechanical components. These components should always look exactly the same, but sometimes they need to be scaled. When they are scaled they need to keep the original stroke weight in order to look the same as the other placed components. Since there is…

  2. Adobe Libraries — Point/Direct to the ACTUAL original file to edit

    The more I use libraries, the more I like it! However, instead of creating a "virtual" library of duplicated files, maybe store/use the ACTUAL original file so as to reduce loads of duplicated files, confusion as to the "latest" version(s) created and a crazy file naming system.

    Right now this is what it does:
    Actual Original File: SSRLogoRGB.ai
    Clicking on "Edit Original" in any Adobe program: SSRLogoRGB_cf14017d-6564-4298-9f8f-d800bd2b4a91.ai

  3. File transfer time via CC too long !!

    The process to synchronize files on the Creative Cloud is not practical for small bandwidths.

    It is painful to sometimes wait several hours for file synchronization on the CC

    I would like to choose among several files the one that I would like to synchronize in priority.


    Transfert de fichiers via CC trop long !!

    Le processus pour syncroniser les fichiers sur le Créative cloud n'est pas pratique pour les petites bandes passantes.

    C'est pénible d'attendre parfois plusieurs heures les synchronisations des fichier sur le CC

    J'aimerai choisir parmi plusieurs fichiers celui que je voudrais synchroniser en priorité.

  4. Allow more then 5 color swatches to be added as a group to Libraries.

    Currently Libraries only allow for a max of 5 color swatches to be added as a group. My team and I share colors frequently through Libraries, and because we use more than 5 colors on a project we have to make multiple Libraries per color scheme. It would be way better and easier to organize projects if color groups were expanded to at least 10 or 15 colors. Then we could have one library per project with multiple color schemes.

  7. Libraries Versioning

    when using Libraries, the elements placed from a library are linked by default to the library, this could pose a problem when the source is edited.

    it would be great if the libraries worked like git hub and integrated a versioning system to allow for variations on a theme / symbol

    right clicking on an item in the library could offer the ability to view history and this would open a github like page.

  8. CC Libraries: Add ability to drag new assets directly into a Library Group

    Currently, any asset dragged to the libraries panel gets added to the Ungrouped section. Let's narrow the focus down and let us drop into any one of the displayed groups.

    This would save immeasurable amounts of time having to hunt down and sort after the fact.

  10. Libraries - Add Ability to Drag-and-Drop Swatches from Library Panel to Swatches Panel

    Add ability to drag-and-drop a color swatch from the Library Panel to the Swatches Panel.

    The functionality exists in the Library Panel Menu, but can't be executed by drag-and-drop. Drag-and-drop swatches is a age-old UI convention in Illustrator and it feels broken that a user can't currently do this.

  11. Linked assets swap feature

    Being designing 748 cards for EDU purposes, I suggest a feature that will let us swap assets stored in the cloud libraries the way we do with symbols.

    The reason :
    Linked assets between documents is a very handy feature
    But symbols cannot store linked assets .
    And symbols can be swapped in their own libraries which is also very handy, but these libraries are not linked between documents.
    As linked assets can store symbols, if we could swap linked assets containing symbols, it would be a big time saving.

    Regards
    Rodolfo Santos.

  12. You can improve by making it possible to move many files at once form CCLibrary to CCFiles folder. (Now 1 by 1).

    Please make it possible to move all files at once from the Creative Cloud Libraries to the Creative Cloud Files folder. I have made lots of great patterns today with Adobe Capture, when you save them you'll find them in your Library but then I wanted to copy them so I also can work with the files offline (from the CCF folder I can export them to my external HDD) with PS and/or Ai. Now I have found out you must copy them one by one...Only made 45 patterns today...and over time I might create thousands....but not if I have…

  13. Sort out functionality of library assets

    Seems a lot of people are struggling with Library assets for various reasons. I think this feature is massively under developed for what should be a great strength across Adobe applications. I still have Illustrator V17 in use as the Library works better than the current version for me, so my subscription is wasted money. I've complained before but to no avail. I create many line drawings with common line segments, so I drag these in from the Library, which creates consistency and should be time saving. Currently each one option-dragged no longer remembers the layer it came from and…

  14. Improving creative cloud library by making it possible to transform a symbole from the cloud library in 1 document

    I'm working for a company who makes workwear and we're having an issue with the creative cloud library.

    We've made al of these symbols in the creative cloud libraries, but we've seen that we can't manipulate these in 1 document.

    For example, we're making a coat.
    First we take the front out of the library, then te sleeves and a pocket.
    We see that it is impossible to change these objects in this new document.
    These drawings from the library are added in the document like pictures, that's why we can't colour them for example.
    We obviously don't want to…

  15. Please remove the pop-up tip from the Color Themes panel

    It's difficult to try out colors in this panel, because a pop-up tip appears right underneath your pointer every time. I'd love to see the "Click to set active color" pop-up removed, as it makes the colors difficult to select and it really isn't even that informative.

  16. Color labeling of library asset groups

  17. Optimization of Vector Assets in CC Libraries

    When you're dragging an Illustrator asset in a CC Library, the asset is placed in a default New Document Profile which come with Default document Libraries such as Swatches, Symbols, Graphic Styles and Brushes.

    In my screenshot example the file size of simple shapes is 355 ko in place of 74 ko without these unused assets.

    It will be great to base the CC Libraries Vector Assets creation on an "empty of default assets" Document Profiles (RVG, CMYK…).

    Thanks for the great work the Team is doing!

  18. CC cloud library "view by group" option when relink images...

    The addition of "view by group" option to organize assets has become paramount to manage great projects. But... I've faced the problem that when I want to relink any file from Cloud Libraries, the panel appears without any grouping or organization, needing to search through houndreds of individual asstes, manytimes sharing same name, and small enough to be undifferenciated each other.

  19. Allow items in libraries to exist in multiple groups or allow items to be tagged and filtered by tag.

    At the moment, items in a CC Library can be ungrouped, or added to a single group. Often though (certainly the way I use them), items may belong to multiple groups. If for example I have an icon that represents the status of something but also has a person in, it could possibly exist in both the "people" and "statuses" groups.

    It would make cataloging items much easier especially in larger libraries.

    Either that or tagging, so each item could be tagged potentially multiple times so that I could then filter by tag?

    Cheers

  20. Add custom AI templates to the CC library

    Add custom AI templates to the CC library. The functionality is already programed for Adobe Stock. Allow the user to add custom templates to their libraries. Enable the bulk import of .ait files.

    I noticed on another thread requesting Cloud files to show in libraries menu. That or create another menu that is for the files similar to how the libraries function. Whatever is easier.
