  1. Change shortcut for paste in place/paste on all artboards to match Indesign

    I'm in a workflow where I work simultaneously with Illustrator and Indesign, linking illustrator files to indesign (they could probably be integrated more!).

    However, it is probably my most irritated moments when I realize I have used cmd-alt-shift-V (shortcut to paste in place in Indesign) instead of cmd-shift-V. If you work on one artboard, it looks the same, and you don't realize your mistake until you go to another artboard and see that the pasted thing has been pasted on all artboards. And you've worked far enough to not having the possibility to undo...

  2. preference option to set "Save as" default to a certain file type

    when you go to save a file, illustrator defaults to the same file that was previously opened. 9 times out of 10 after i open an eps, svg, pdf, etc... i'll make changes and go to "save as" but want to save it as an illustrator file. i'd love to be able to just open the dialogue box and have it default to a file type i can select via a preference option.

  3. Allow to see full name past artboard extent

    The artboard name is restricted to the size of the artboard, which truncates the name and makes it illegible. Better logic would be to only shorten the name if it collides with another artboard name.

  4. Navigator and Artboard bug

    Navigator doesn't move around and there are two "23" in Artboards. The number artboard 22 doesn't even appear

  5. Artboards should have a purpose


    1. What is the purpose of having an artboard if anything drawn beyond it shows up as part of your drawing? I exported an artwork as a png file and everything beyond the artboard showed up as part of the artwork. The workspace around the artboard should be able to be used for ideas that may be relevant to future versions of your art or to assist in creating your art.

    2. When I drew the attached image, I expected that anything beyond the artboard would not show as part of the artwork.

  6. Master Illustrator File Placed in Multiple Illustrator Files OR Export Selected Layers Palette

    In my line of work, we often time work in one single Illustrator file that has one basemap then multiple layers with each showing a specific thing separate from the other layers. However this gets tedious when exporting files where you have to select the layers you want, export as it's own name, deselect those layers and select the next batch of layers, export those under their own name, deselect those layers etc.

    What would be great is if Illustrator had the ability to have something like a Master Layer that can bring in a basemap Illustrator file to have…

  7. Add Frames into Illustrator

    In InDesign it's possible to add frames for text and imagery, and although Illustrator isn't necessarily the layout application - it would be great to get this feature on it too.

  8. auto arrange artboards on new

    First, the workspace is Too **** small at this point, especially when working in pixels. And someone out there assumes 72dpi still. Stop it!

    I'm creating 4K artboards to explore some ideas. I create 2 of them. And it won't let me create a 3rd without rearranging. Who's idea was That!?!?

    The first thing you should do is just move the stinkin' workspace. What's with all the room on the left? Look, if you only work left to right, why are you always trying to center the artboards in the workspace? You'll never use the space above or to the…

  9. Pg Up & Pg Down

    Hi guys! I have a feature request. Usually the rule of thumb is if you can hotkey it or select it from a menu then you can build it into an action. There's one exception I've found.

    Illustrator will respond to using the Page Up and Page Down keys on your keyboard to navigate your artboards. BUT it ignores these commands if you're recording an action.

    We could make some really robust and powerful actions if we could program actions to navigate through the artboards. Please please please add this?

    PS it would also be amazing if variables could navigate…

  10. 100 artboards

    Over 100 Artboards please. This has been talked about for 3 years now to no avail.

    I'm creating UI and it requires more that 100 pages. Why are we being constrained?

  11. Illustrator Zeichenflächen

    Es wäre wünschenswert, mehrere Zeichenflächen gleichzeitig markieren zu können. Außerdem mehrere ausgewählte zeichenflächen gleichzeitig verschieben zu können oder über das Ausrichten Werkzeug oder Koordinaten organisieren zu können.

  13. Feedback on Enhaced Cloud Document Feature (in Beta now)

    Now, embed Photoshop cloud documents into your cloud documents and files. You will be able to select your Photoshop cloud documents in a new cloud picker in the Place dialog.

    Track the status of individual cloud documents, through the Cloud Sync icon in your CDO.

  14. Guides with option to limit to single artboard

    It would be great to have an option to limit guides pulled out from the ruler to be limited to the currently active artboard - rather than run across the whole canvas. This would avoid unwanted guides falling across every artboard in the document.

  15. Ability to create a new document

    I want to create a new document and not one from a template. Please add "Create New Bank Document".

    I use this for mobile games and don't think it's fair I have to revert back to Legacy to just create a quick ai file to edit and go.

  16. Bring back "hide edges" for type within a paragraph

    I used to be able to select a line of type, hide edges, and then view how various fonts looked (without seeing the type bar that show's it's selected). Not being able to do this has greatly slowed down my process. Please bring back "Hide Edges" for selected type within a paragraph.

  17. Separate rulers for art boards

    Could we get individual rulers per art board. This would make it easier to see spacing and relationships on individual boards.

  18. New document preset details fields tab order

    When creating a new document in both Illustrator and Photoshop the Preset Details tab order is frustrating. It would make more sense to enter a width in the field then hit tab to go to height field. Currently it tabs from width to units to height.
    I often enter a width hit tab and enter what I think is a height only to find it's sitting on the units dropdown.
    InDesign has this tab order correct and is much more sensible.
