  1. For Illustrator software to work better with domain environment

    We are currently getting a Preferences folder read-only error when Illustrator is opened by any domain user on any of our domain linked computers. Adobe technical support says that Illustrator currently is not tested for and is not approved to work in domain environments. This is preventing many users in our department from using this software.

    I am requesting for Adobe Illustrator CC to be better compatible with domain environments.

    Please see case# 0189187231 as a reference.

    Thanks,
    Paul

  3. Designers are being asked to design for new end user media

    Creating ways to take my vector to 3D, for 3D printing, CNC plasma cutting, and new ways that are being asked for designers and artist to file share and work better together. Exporting my work for auto cad, and 3D software, plotters etc and simplify the paths. There is 2D and there is 3D cad. But as an artist I want to be able to take what I have done in Illustrator and evolve my work and output options to and material to the next level. CorelDraw was just a play toy program. But it looks like they have got…

  4. Assets panel multiple selection with just mouse

    I want to use mouse and "Ctrl" to select assets I want to export in Asset Export panel. But I can't do that. Mouse works only as per 1 selection. Yes, I can hold "Ctrl" and click on different assets or use Shift to select some, but that not useful for me. Sometimes I want to select big groups of assets located at the beginning and end of the assets list, so I just want to hold "Ctrl" and play with mouse easily and fast by selecting any items.
    ****, it's like you just holding "Ctrl" and selecting folder with…

  5. Show slices names

    I'm looking for a simple but very useful option for slices:
    "Show slice name"

    Currently in setting of Illustrator there are only option:
    "Show slice numbers", - file attached.
    But it's doesn't give me anything actually.
    I've created names for each slice and I need to check these names visually, without need to select each slice and goto it slice settings..

  6. Importoptionen dauerhaft sichtbar

    Seit einiger Zeit können in Illustrator die Importoptionen nicht mehr dauerhaft eingeschaltet (sichtbar sein)!
    Es ist sehr nervig und kostet viele Klicks, wenn man immer erst auf den Optionen-Button klicken muss, um die derzeitigen Einstellungen zu sehen.

  7. Exportación de recursos - Translated Asset Export

    La herramienta de exportación de recursos me parece genial y muy práctica pero los archivos pierden calidad.
    Genero diferentes dibujos dentro de un mismo archivo para imprimir camisetas y esa opción para nombrar los archivos y exportarlos es muy rápida.
    La realidad es que pierden mucha calidad y tengo que acabar generando mesas de trabajo diferentes y exportandolos de forma tradicional.
    Creo que si mejoraran ese aspecto sería ya la herramienta perfecta.
    gracias

  8. Hue bar in Recolor artwork needs to come back

    The older feature of 'Hue Bar' in the Recolor artwork was a really helpful tool
    this makes the color fixing and decision of color combinations so easier, please bring back this Hue bar.

  9. Double-click of text should not select trailing space on macOS

    On macOS, When using double-click to select a word in a text object, Illustrator is also selecting any trailing space. That is a common Windows behavior, but shouldn't be that way on macOS. Double-click should just select a the word (no surrounding whitespace).

  10. Fill/Stroke icons to match: in the tools bar

    the smaller sub-icons for Fill and Stroke Boxes shouldto match. (Fill is Full and Stroke is Hollow). Under stroke, the icons only change for the color, but the icons do not change for gradient and no/color/opacity.

  11. "Use preview bounds" option in stroke panel

    Please add the "use preview bounds" option not only available in the presets, but also in the stroke panel (e.g. with a checkmark) to make it easier to switch it on / off. That would make icon design much faster.

  13. Pattern Swatches Shift when Copied & Pasted

    Copying and pasting a pattern filled object or text, especially when pasting into a new document, should not shift the pattern. This causes many issues when passing files to others.

  14. Blur Below Transparent Object

    Having the ability to create a frosted glass effect by being able to blur below a transparent object dynamically. Therefore if we move the transparent object, it will blur anything below itself automatically.

  15. dots (.) on units

    when typing units, in any case (like sizing a square, or the width of a line), we were able to use the dot (.) for decimals, now it only reads the commas (,). So if i create a square (or any other object) and type on size something as: 3.5mm, it reads it as 35mm, if i want a 3.5mm square, i need to type 3,5mm (with a comma).

    it is more practical to accept the dot, since it is right there at the numpad on the keyboard.

    can we go back to that?

  16. A number of my panels will not open - e.g.: when I click to expand the character panel, all I get below is a black box.

    Many of my panels still open as they should. However, I'm having this problem with the info, character, paragraph, properties, stroke and align panels. Any help on what could fix it would be greatly appreciated? I've searched on the adobe support community and google and no one else seems to be having this problem. Thanks!

  17. ME (middle east) support required for type setting.

    llustrator 23.0.1 ME version for Windows currently does not have options for reading 'Left to Right' and 'Right to Left' . This is a requirement for Arabic.
    This option is available only for MAC users.
    This is an absolute requirement for Arabic typesetting.

  18. New customisable toolbar in illustrator 2019 - my tools keep disappearing! Please fix this ASAP

    The new toolbar in illustrator is absolutely frustrating and unusable as tools keep moving or disappearing entirely. This is absolutely the worst feature Adobe has ever introduced

  19. Ability to use separate graphic styles on strokes versus fills

    the title basically says it all.

    i would like to apply a graphic style to an object's stroke, and apply a separate graphic style, or more likely no style to that object's fill. this way i can alter the stroke of many objects at once, without altering their fill color.

    typically i have illustrations with 100s of groups each consisting of 100s of faces with the same stroke style, but different fill colors. in the course of design, i need to tweak the stroke color and weight to get the right look, but it's extremely tedious to have to click…
