  4. Variable Fonts in Paragraph/Character Styles

    This may well be planned already, but I would love to be able to edit variable font axes inside the paragraph style dialogue. This would be very valuable in keeping things consistent.

  5. Ai File icon turned upside down

    Hi. I have updated the ai to version cc 2018 and all the icons of my files in ai format turned upside down. It makes me feel annoyed even it does not hinder me from opening and working on the files. May i know how this can be fixed?

    Thank you.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. Add a panel setting to auto-expand "Layers" panel

    Please add a panel option to the "Layers" panel to expand new layers by default. I'm sick of clicking it for each new document I create.

    There is a Search bar in Libraries, which searches from Adobe Stock by default, and there is a dropdown where you can choose whether to search through current/all libraries.

  10. A 'Remove Duplicate/Wholly Obscured Objects' feature

    A 'Remove Duplicate/Wholly Obscured Objects' feature

    I can pay for a plugin that removes duplicate objects that are immediately above/below a copy. I need something more sophisticated; an option to clean up a drawing by removing all duplicate objects and all wholly obscured objects.

  11. Use arrow keys to kern letterforms

    I would like to use arrow keys to visually kern letterforms, instead of having to enter numerical values = what you can do now only if you outline type. Thanks, Barry

  12. (Prepress Futures 2) Channel mixer

    I use a lot the Channel mixer option in photoshop, cause i need to convert CMYK photos into lets say CM plus 2 or 3 spot colors, then I need to do the same in illustrator for vector illustrations and I dont want to convert this vector into pixels, I wana keep it vector to mantain the quality.

    I know I can import the file as a smart object into photoshop but better if I can do it directly in Illustrator.

  13. Adobe installers for Mac install corrupt files

    Adobe installers for Mac install corrupt files, as shown by DiskWarrior "Files - Check All Files and Folders”. For instance:

    /Applications/Utilities/Adobe Application Manager/LWA/amtservices.framework/Versions/A/Resources/._Info.plist

    /Applications/Utilities/Adobe Application Manager/LWA/asneu.framework/Versions/A/Resources/._Info.plist

    It would be great if Adobe checked that to make sure all files are OK before releasing installers. Thanks.

  14. Transform by Reference Line Numerically

    I would love to see a "Transform by Reference Line Numerically" feature where user draws a line across an object in any direction, then is able to specify the size they want. This is helpful for raster images where there is no actual vector line to accurately resize to. I use embroidery digitizing software and this is a cool feature. Wilcom Software Transform by Reference Line Numerically.

    I've included a screen shot of the Wilcom Manual to hopefully explain better than i can articulate.

  15. Rotate multiple shapes one time but each ones around its anchor point

    Dear Adobe
    Can we please have the possibility to select many shapes and rotate them all one time but each one be rotated around its anchor point?
    I think it will help us to make great designs quickly.
    Thanks and I hope you take my proposal in consideration

    Need More Info  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    Hi Nacer,

    Does the menu item Object > Transform > Transform Each… not work for you? You can also choose the reference point on the 9-point reference widget in the dialog.

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

  16. Missing a Modal Pop up

    Dear Adobe...
    If I spend time organizing my art and putting it onto multiple layers and contains HUNDREDS of pieces, when I make a masking layer you take my artwork and smash it all into one layer WITHOUT popping a modal saying this will smash it all into one layer and waste a day of your life having to re-organize it into layers again because a stakeholder requested edits...You failed me. Bad Adobe BAD.

    Please fix this, it's really not cool. When I think of all the hours of my life that you have wasted on things like this over…

  17. Shape properties panel - can't see a way to open it permanently

    When you have a primitive shape selected in the properties panel there are three dots which allow you to edit the shape attributes eg pie angle if it's a circle. I can see no way to have that panel open automatically why is it always hidden behind the three dots button? I'm constantly having to click to open that panel.

  18. Stroke/Fill Color Selections

    I miss being able to just drag a fill color to the stroke box or vice versa. It is tedious to have the extra clicks to get the same results
