  1. Make Y direction POSITIVE numbers above the Y "zero" point like in the rest of world.

    Align Illustrator with the rest of the world by making the default Y direction positive numbers above the Y "zero" point - in my case zero is set to the very center of the Artboard.

    And also make this a preference item across CC apps. I still don't see how it's an advantage in InDesign and Photoshop.

  3. Allowance to change the keyboard shortcuts for Previous Artboard and Next Artboard

    I have all of my keyboard shortcuts set to the left side of the keyboard, since I draw right-handed and keep my left hand on that side of the keys. In my animation workflow, I like to scrub back and forth quickly between artboards, but I do not like the current LOCKED shortcuts for going back and forth through them:

    Previous Artboard (Currently locked to Shift-PgUp)
    Next Artboard (Currently locked to Shift-PgDn)
    First Artboard (Currently locked to Ctrl-Shift-PgUp)
    Last Artboard (Currently locked to Ctrl-Shift-PgDn)

    There is currently no listing for them in the keyboard shortcuts menu, so they cannot be…

  4. Artboard Dimension Limitation

    One of the biggest complaints we hear from our franchisees is the artboard limitation of 227.541". Why is that the limit? Corel doesn't have a limit. Why Adobe? and why such an obscure number? I realize there is a PDF limitation of 200" so that is another issue.

  6. In version 24.02 problems with the file information

    Hello, in Illustrator version 24.02 I have problems with the file information. Now the title is not saved anymore, I always have to enter it afterwards via Bridge. Also the creation date is no longer saved in the EPS files. When I enter this via Bridge, I always get an error message: "There is a problem with the file. "

    It would be great if you could change this.

  7. New Document Modal displays nothing on first install

    After first installing Ai 2020 and hitting Cmd+N to create a new document, the modal defaults to the recents tab which is not populated yet and therefore does not offer an option or button to create a new document. Once you go to a different tab and choose a preset it will display it in recents. But for the first time it should probably default to another tab or at least offer you a button to create a new document.

  8. same artboard number within 1 file

    Why the artboards are numbered like this when it was fine in older versions. I need to export them in correct order as they contain writing steps. Now I missed some steps of the writings, this is very essential and crucial. The problem occurs on the other file too, exact number skipped and missing as well. #13, #17 missing with #15, #18 being duplicated the same...

  9. Increase Bleed Limit

    FINALLY! Art board bleeds can be set for more than 1"!! BUT..... It's still not right. I just don't get how your developers/programers can be as incompetent as they are. Here's the new problem..
    When you are first setting up an art board under "new document" you can set the bleed limit to 24". But if you set the art board up without bleed and go through "Properties" to adjust... THE LIMIT IS STILL 1" INCH!!!!

  13. Remove the default 72 PPI resolution

    There is NO device on Earth (except in museums) that have 72 PPI screen.
    However, EVERY new screen-intended document created today in Illustrator and Photoshop STILL made with only 72 PPI by default.

    With this laughable resolution, all raster effects are rendered, looking just bad on any screen.

    Since 72 PPI is the actual World Standard, it confuses many Adobe users and it has to be changed for good.

    Today's computer screens have at the very least 120 PPI, but the phones for which many projects are created have a way higher pixel density of 450 PPI and more. The…

  14. create artboards to CENTER of stroke pleasssseee!

    if i create a box with a fill and stroke, use (shift O) for artboard tool, i double click my box and a new artboard is created. when i double click my shape with the artboard tool, it creates an artboard around the stroke width and not the actual bounding box or CENTER of the stroke. i believe illustrator used to preform this operation correctly in the past.

  19. Carry decimals in the Artboard Size to ten thousandths

    Carry decimals in the Artboard Size to ten thousandths so it matches the Transform palette. Right now you can only view the accurate Artboard size in the Document Info palette.

  20. Scrolling through zoomed in Artwork while dragging an object

    When I am zoomed in and drag an object - for example draw a rectangle or line that reaches the end of the window while dragging, the artboard scrolls but the image is not refreshed. Only the ruler shows me, that I am scrolling... Even when I stop dragging and release the mousebutton, the image is not fully refreshed. Otherwise: when I drag the Marquee-Tool to the end of the window, scrolling starts and the image gets constantly refreshed while dragging. This is the way I would normally expect it to be, regardless of the the Tool I am using.…
