  3. Edges disappear when object is selected and moved

    Hi there,

    When an object is selected the object edges show. Once the object is then dragged and moved the edges disappear meaning it's hard to line up objects.

    An help with this would be much appreciated.

    Version: 24.1.2

  4. Shortcut keys

    Why not use the same shortcut key as AfterEffects for 'placing' images ie. Apple or CTRL 'i'. Using the 'Shift' CTRL P is awkward. Photoshop should also have the same shortcut key. Different shortcuts for different Adobe programs slow downs users.

  5. New font

    Typekit is missing a really basic, classic font:

    If you look at posters for movies like THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, you'll notice that the fonts often are 30-35% taller than any font that's available in typekit.

    So it would be super nice if Typekit could add something like that. It's really important if you're making movie posters...

  6. Editable path smoothing for pencil and brush paths

    I'm proposing smoothing that may be applied or removed after a path has been created with the pencil or brush tool by the user. When a path is being created, the program would capture necessary coordinate information and the path would be represented on screen as drawn, or with a certain amount of smoothing (set prior to drawing in tool panel). If the user wanted more or less smoothing applied after creating the path, the amount could be adjusted by selecting the path and changing the amount applied. If the path would no longer need adjusting, it could be expanded…

  7. Please add grammar and spelling checker and correction option

    Please add grammar and spelling checker and correction options. I have lost a lot of money on printing just due to spelling minor mistake which made my all printing expenses to garbage.

  8. Don't automatically lock new template layers

    It would be useful when creating a new template layer it did not immediately become locked. Usually, I would want to put items on this layer like notes or reference marks, but unlocking the layer seems like an unnecessary step for a layer that has just been created.

  9. 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).

  11. Latest resale on Ubuntu/Linux OS

    Please release Adobe Illustrator to Ubuntu as I really wants to move into Ubuntu.
    But without Illustrator I can live a single day.

  12. When entering colour values Illustrator searches your currently open swatch book for the same values.

    So for example if you are doing a CMYK colour, once you've put in the values it comes up with a "suggested swatch" option that has the same values or even suggests swatches with similar/close values.

  13. Direct Selection Tool

    When using the Direct Selection Tool to move an anchor point IT SHOULD JUST MOVE THAT POINT without having to click on the point first. If I wanted to move the whole object I wouldn't be using the Direct Selection Tool, WOULD I?

  14. Please add a drop-down feature for font families, that allows all families to collapse and lock in the drop-down position.

    Can you please create a system preference in which I am able to collapse all font families at once, and will lock them in the drop-down position?
    It is very hard to scroll through the typefaces and collapse families individually, one by one.

  17. Export for Screens: Option to include file- and artboard-name automatically.

    Ok the "Export for Screen" option is kind of nice, however it takes far too long to set everything up....


    1. The areas to type in are far too small.

    2. Automation is week
      a. where can define that all images will get the file name of the original .AI file.
      b. why does it keep the old folder location? Set an option to export is where the original
      .AI-file is located.
      c. Where are some presets? Wouldn't it be awesome to have some user-defined presets? It would be.

    3. The images are to small

    4. There are to many clicks, like when I…

  19. fsType not honored when exporting as PDF

    Hello,
    I've noticed the fsType value in the OS/2 table of OTF fonts is not honored by Indesign nor Illustrator.

    I've set the value of fsType to 0x0102 and this should prevent subsetting and embedding.
    However, Illustrator exports to pdf, embedding . Worst, it gives no warning the embedding/subsetting isn't allowed for the current font.

    for info, I had flushed any font cache to be sure the font files are the good ones and deleted them from my disk before reopening my pdf to be sure they're embedded.
    For info, these fonts are located in Library > Application support >…
