  1. Multipage PDF export in the Asset Export Panel

    The Asset Export panel is really great and you can export Artboards as PDF but each artboard is a PDF file.

    It will be so great to add a checkbox to export the selected Artboards as a unique Multipage PDF.
    Currently you can export in PDF using Save as… PDF, you have to enter manually the pages ranges and it's not memorized for the next export like in Export for Screens (Asset Export panel).

  2. Change "Export For Screens" Save Path Default To File Folder

    f I go to File > Export > Export For Screens the default save path points to the last folder I used. What we as users are expecting is the default path to be equal to the same folder as the Illustrator file is currently located in.

    If you feel this should not be the default at least give us a way to change this in the AI Preferences. Thanks!

  3. Export Artboards as PowerPoint or Keynote slides

    I like using Illustrator to design complexe slides or icons, illustrations… for my slides and I’d like to export them by maintaining vector capabilities to have the ability in PowerPoint or Keynote to change their color and to scale them freely.

    I know plug-ins or some export format will somehow works for some cases.
    But it will be so nice to have a straight forward export!

  4. Remember User preference for Responsive SVG / SVGZ

    We often need SVG and SVGZ that are NOT responsive to the web area (we need to control the viewable font size for psychometrics purposes).

    Illustrator default switches to Responsive being checked after every Illustrator restart. It would be great if every time I restart Illustrator the check box for "Responsive" remembered that I want it UNchecked (our workaround is to create a new SVGZ file immediately after every restart and uncheck the Responsive box, and if we don't remember to do that task our work must be tediously re-exported).

  5. Save As PDF

    When i SAVE AS PDF,
    and then make some changes and hit SAVE,
    the changes are then saved in the PDF and not in the AI file.

    WHY????
    THIS MAKES NO SENSE!!!

    "Save as" should work like "Export"
    And not change the your filetype you are working in

  7. Export for Screens should be per project.

    I work on lots of projects. They all use export for screens. The export location and exports settings vary by project. Remembering and resetting the location and settings for each project slows down my work flow and is a source of problems in the greater work flow that the exported art is just a piece of. For instance in one "greater" project there are multiple Illustrator files for Android icons, iOS icons, and multiple art files - each requires different settings and locations in Export for Screens.

  8. SVG Export - Option to keep words intact

    SVG export seems to break up any text by character in tspan elements, I'm guessing this is so the end product is kerned as nicely as possible.

    In some cases I prefer readability/editability over the best possible output.

    I would like an option to prevent characters from being put into individual <tspan> tags.

  9. Export and Share Entire Adobe DRAW Projects as Illustrator Files (not just one drawing at a time).

    We can share individual drawings from Adobe DRAW to Illustrator, but when you have an entire PROJECT of drawings, the share option is limited to very LOW-resolution images on a web link or sending them to Behance as a portfolio piece. Why on earth can't we just send an entire project to our computer for Illustrator. I could just save them in the Creative Cloud files in a folder called Adobe DRAW as individual illustrator files in a folder of the project's name.

    I spent 2 hours last night just opening individual DRAW drawings, sending them to Illustrator and then…

  11. Export file format order

    Is there a way to change the order of formats in the dropdown? It would be great to have the default choice be the format I use 99% of the time?

  12. Checkbox to saving process for different file formats

    When we save for clients different file formats, it takes a lot of time to choose PNG and save, AI and save, EPS and save, PDF then save. Maybe a checkbox when we export what kind of file formats we want to export, and it also rewrites the earlier files.

  13. Filter "Recent Files" to include only AI documents

    RECENT FILES SHOULD IDEALLY BE ONLY AI DOCUMENTS.

    If I have exported say 10 jpgs in my previous session, on start-up my RECENT FILES is over-run with those JPG file names. They all have the same thumbnail too. That's outrageous!

  14. save to cloud documents for illustrator and other apps

    Can we please add the function of saving to the adobe cloud documents on apps other than PSD?? Currently after the 2020 update there is a function window that pops up when you click save/save as and it gives you the option to save to the adobe cloud documents, which is great because it saves me from using space on my flash disc memory. However, sadly illustrator does not have this option, it only has the option to save to the creative cloud synced files which is different from cloud documents because synced files still takes up space on your…

  15. Support for older versions of Illustrator

    Support for older versions of Illustrator. I often need to open ancient files, and I have clients running Adobe CS and earlier.

    This planned-obsolescence scheme is out of control.

  16. Streamline the Fresco To Illustrator Export Process

    Like many I use Illustrator for its Vector properties in order to animate within After Effects, with the agility to scale up assets infinitely when clients change their minds about shots & movements.

    iPads Adobe Draw, meant my assets could become so much more detailed. Which was great! While the push to desktop feature was glitchy for me at best it still mostly resulted with having a neat AI file version of the Draw one. That I could Import into AE with ease. Update with ease. etc.

    It's also useful that I can bring in AI assets to PS as…

  18. Add 'Relink image' in the right click (contextual) menu

    would speed up productivity when replacing multiple linked images by allowing users to control-click or right-click on an image to relink files, rather than going to the menu bar every time.

  19. PNG export embeds the wrong ICC profile

    When exporting as PNG (export for screens, export as...) Illustrator uses the current RGB working space profile, but save the sRGB profile in the file.
    Other software shows the colors as sRGB although a totally different profile may have been used for the conversion to RGB.
    Either embed the correct profile or convert to sRGB when exporting (like the old Save for Web still does).
    See: https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/color-sync/m-p/10880173#M163311

  20. Illustrator not responding can not save files, crashes on two different computers

    Since illustrator 2020 was updated I can not work on it. It's slow, crashes and can not save files. I urgently need this fixed. I range adobe who said it was due to my lap top being only 8 gb of ram and they re set my settings, it became worse. I then tried it on a computer with 16gb of ram and same issue. No one can tell me the problem. I need to complete an important project.
