  1. Fix Black Overprints

    Fix the appearance of black overprint so that other colors are visible under solid black when overprint preview is on (unless I'm missing something, this used to work in older versions).

  2. Adding overprint toggles in the Separations Preview window

    Currently, the overprint toggles are only in the "Attributes" panel but the overprint preview toggle is in the Separations Preview panel. Including overprint toggles in the Separations Preview panel allows the user to see the overprints in the file and toggle off/on any visible overprints prior to exporting/printing. This would save on workspace real estate by choosing to exclude the Attributes panel solely for overprint toggles.

  4. Maintaining colour levels between PS & AI on linked files??

    Issue: linked PS(CMYK) file into AI(CMYK) appears in AI with difference colour values from the original PS file.

    Only way around it I was told by Adobe is to directly "open" the PS doc in AI not "place" to maintain the colour values. They also had told me that this is the expect behaviour of the software.

    I feel this is a serious flaw for files for print, I have always used AI to set up my packaging print files and never had an issue I think this must be a recent update.

    Does anyone known of a work around…

  5. automatic trapping plug-in would be a great step forward.

    An automatic trapping feature, or a plug-in to that effect, would be of great convenience when submitting files for output.

  6. convert low res images to high res

    I'd like an option to convert a low res image eg. 72 dpi which can be converted to a high res image 300 dpi for printing in one click.

    Currently, you would have to redraw the image to create a higher resolution. image for printing which can be time-consuming. People are always giving you a web resolution (72 dpi) and wanting you to create print documents using it. This would be a huge technological win for all designers everywhere.

  7. SET OVERPRINT TO GROUPS OF DIFFERENT OBJECTS

    Second Time i have to adress this, Grouped objects, Set the group to over print, yet some of hte objects do not accept this setting as a group , only by ungrouping the mixed objects i can achieve a safe overprint setting, no other version before this one had this ERROR and its in fact dangerous to my worl as a finished artist when i can not trust my software to do what i set it to do.

    Please fix this once & for all

    Example, group various objects (excluding stroke) type box, vector objects of various sizes and shapes…

  8. Different number of copies for each artboard

    Hi,

    I've a document in Illustrator with a lot of pages (artboards).

    I must print a specific number of copies for each page.

    Example: for the page number one I must print 20 copies, for the page two I must print 60 copies, ecc

    Is there a way to forward this request with one command or I must select one by one page?

    I've found this trick but is very complicated if I've a lot of pages to print: in the label of range of artboards I write : 1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,3,3,3,4,4,5,5,5,5,5,ecc

  9. Properly viewable and properly printable files NEEDED!

    When creating a final file from Illustrator for a printer, I change type into outlines so that there will be no font problems. Then I save as a PDF. The PDF is VERY inconsistent in how it shows straight lines of letters. ie: lower case "L", cap "I", hyphens, dashes, and other letters with "straight" lines -- p, d, M, etc. The pdfs look terrible unless you blow them up very large. AND when you print them out, you can also see the differences in thickness of the letters on different printers. Questions: How do I tell my customer "Oh,…

  10. calque non imprimable

    Dans la version cc 2018, un calque non imprimable n'est plus différencié des autres par son non en italique, c'est très gênant et source d'erreur !
    IL serait bien de revenir sur ce petit détail, de grande importance dans les métiers du print. Par avance merci
