  1. Return / make optional ability to indicate subfolders in artboard name / path

    In previous versions it was possible to make name of artboard as "folder/subfolder/artboardname" and while export it would reproduce whole hierarchy of subfolders.
    It was super nice for organizing assets.
    Now it saves file in base directory and replaces "/" with "-".
    Maybe we can put this option to settings so that people may continue to use it.

  2. Correctly include vector objects from previous Illustrator version files

    A customer file created in CC 15 MAC and (according to tech support) using a CS/3 template does not open properly in CC 18. a group of objects appear as a missing linked file rather that the actual objects. However CS/5 opens the file and placed the vector objects inside a clip mask properly, allowing access to the vector path information. Why would CC18 not have the same capability? Worse, why would it confuse the issue stating a linked file is missing? The vector info is obviously in the file (since it appears in CS/3 and CS/5, get that info…

  3. File > Export > Name > Save Settings, etc. not customizable

    In the layers palette I select the layer for export > File > Export > Save for Web (Legacy) and I get this window (screen cap attached).

    I can save a custom setting (example, MCK web post) but it only allows me to save one of the default settings like PNG-24. If I change the image size values it does not retain them.

    So what is the point of saving a custom setting when it does not save the information? It’s no different than choosing a default setting like PNG-24. So what? That is not efficient/helpful.

    I request that this…

  5. Asset name in Export panel = Symbol name

    It would be a huge time saver for a symbol to be named in the assets panel after the name of the symbol instead of the name of the instance.

  6. Preview for file name with prefix and suffix when exporting for screens

    I have three requests about Prefix for filenames -
    1. Move it to a more prominent area where it's visible. Sometimes it's pre-populated because of previous exports, but since it's too small and not located anywhere around the artboards, it's very easy to miss it and end up with wrong file names.
    2. Make it bigger. Most prefixes have at least two words and the current input doesn't accommodate it. I have to manually scroll through the complete thing with the keyboard. Not very useful.
    3. Show a preview of complete file name(s) including prefix and suffix. Right now there's…

  7. Auto-trace PSDs separately by group/layer

    Transfer/convert Photoshop documents via auto-trace to illustrator vector shapes while retaining general group/layer hierarchy. Any shape layers in PSD should be converted to Illustrator shapes.

    Example: Sketch a new puppet for Character Animator in Photoshop, open the PSD in Illustrator, use auto-trace to convert each layer separately, maintaining relative group/layer hierarchy. Clean up vector paths, use Illustrator puppet in Character Animator at any scale.

  11. Asset Export panel list view clips filenames to approx 24 characters

    Asset Export list view should show full file name or clip to panel width. As it stands, my file names are being clipped even though there is plenty of room to show the full name.

  12. Place files via drag-n-drop but still allow options to be selected before placement.

    If we want to place a page of a multi-page PDF into an AI file, we have to do so using the File->Place menu with Options checked. It would be nice to be able to simply drag the PDF onto the AI document and have the option dialog open so we can choose which page to place.

  13. Slices

    I have created a logo and it saves in slices, and at one point in it's own folder, which I didn't ask it to do, I don't want that. Also the Illustrator program is to big, it falls off the screen at times and Photoshop is to small, I need a magnifying glass can they both be fixed so they can fit properly on the screen. Also now and then all the colors in swatch window disappears.

  14. Password Protect for edit SVG "like save as PDF"

    when save as PDF there are option "security" to can make password to restrict edit protected PDF, can please make this feature also for SVG.
    because for example : if put SVG illustration in website it very easy for any person to take from the website and open it in illustrator or any SVG edit program, so need to make password when open SVG in any SVG edit program.

  16. When exporting png files with 300 ppi, keep the actual size of the canvas

    Hello, it would be great if you export a canvas of z. For example, 100x100px can set the ppi resolution to 300 while the exported png is still exactly 100x100px. for the creation of tile sets that would be very good and would save me many hours of work. In addition, the pngs would also have a color profile, which is unfortunately not the case at the moment. Thank you

  17. Packaging doesn't save library items

    I use my Adobe Library function to save time in placing common graphics into files. However, I notice when I go to package the file to prepare it for the press, it doesn't collect all of the library items, and then turns into an endless loop where the it keeps prompting me to update items in the library. The only workaround for this currently is to grant more people access to my library, which is not best practice, or to go through every link that's on the cloud and resave it into a links folder manually.

  18. File synchronization fails for ai files saved with CC 2018

    I sync my files across several computers using Unison (an rsync command line tool). Since updating, .ai files will not synchronize. I am running macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 and CC 2018 v 22.0.0 on the computers that I am syncing.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. make ai file. A4 RGB layout with one text item. Save.
    2. run Unison.
    3. synchronization fails with message that the ai file does not exist on the other computer because it could not be renamed from the tmp version of the ai file that unison pulls from the other computer.

    Not sure if this is…

  19. 1x folder

    Right now, even when I'm not exporting any of my artboards as retina, Illustrator INSISTS upon exporting all PNG files inside a new folder called "1x." This is annoying, stupid, and unhelpful. It makes it hard to find when I go looking for the exports, I'm looking for descriptively named .png files, not a completely innocuous folder named "1x" for no reason.

    Please stop ******* with exports. Just make it work like it did last version. This is not an improvement.

  20. dropbox syncing

    When I open/save through the native Illustrator dialogue boxes, files that I have in my dropbox folders begin to download for no reason. I use SmartSync to keep my HD space optimized and this little glitch makes that impossible.
