    The 27.3 beta is now available and I tried it.

    It is a nice start, but it is very limited, with deficiencies, problems, and bugs. It is better than nothing, but, quite frankly, it isn't actually good. In detail:

    1) The ability to add additional sets of presets is great, but each file should remember the last settings used for its export! For the vast majority of my files, I want to export them the same way every time. This should just work. I have dozens of sets of export settings. I'm sure some people have hundreds. The idea that I have to give every one of them a name and then remember the name so I can manually set it before exporting is weird.

    2) I can imagine somebody arguing that I don't have to give every export set a name — I can just export to a file in the same directory and then import it when I want it. Well, I still need unique names or I'll have problems (see below), there are bugs in import (see below), and I have to delete the imported set from the menu or it will get cluttered.

    3) The Export does not include the file export settings! This is just wrong. For example, in file 1, I MUST have transparent PNG files; while in file 2, I CANNOT have transparent PNG files. It makes no sense that this is a global setting, and seriously blunts the value of what you've trying to fix here.

    4) Export is sometimes disabled. It should never be disabled.

    5) I like the fact that it is possible to edit the preset file outside Illustrator, but, after you edit a file, sometimes an import gets the old version. I don't even know how this is possible. Explicitly documenting the format of the file and the fields in it would be helpful (though it doesn't look that complicated).

    6) When you import a preset set you've imported before (or another with the same name), it adds a second menu item rather than replacing the existing item.

    I downloaded the beta, but it is 27.2, not 27.3.

    I *love* Illustrator, but I cannot believe this is still not fixed. Look at the attached export set. It takes 5 to 10 minutes to configure this, it is error prone, and I've had to do it more than once! Once I've done it once, I should be able to save it and reload it again in the future.

    Another issue is that some exports require transparency, while others cannot have it. This is NOT a user option, it's a file option. I've had to re-export files, including reconfiguring all the sizes and file names, after forgetting to double check the transparency setting.

    In addition to being able to save and load export settings, including format settings, each Illustrator file MUST remember all of the export options used in that file!

    Export for Screens is seriously handicapped! Settings should be saved with the file, so you don't have to manually re-enter the settings every time you export. The world includes much more than Android and iOS (ever hear of Windows or Mac? or the idea that not everything that's being exported is for standard app usage?). It shouldn't be easy to accidentally export files to the wrong directory, like the directory from a completely different project or some weird default directory. And, because many different files do share settings (beyond iOS and Android) there really should be the ability to create additional templates.

    Hi Everyone,

    We have fixed this bug in our latest release – v 24.2.1 which is available worldwide now. Thanks for your patience on this.

    Please note that after upgrading you might still see that Align To sets itself to Align to Key Object. If you see this, please manually set the Align To to the required setting, and this reported bug will not happen again. You’ll need to this one time only.

    The reason Align To might get set to Key Object after update is because Ai remembers your last Align To on subsequent launches as well. So, if your last Align To was Key Object before quitting/upgrading, after first multi-selection, it will set itself to Key Object. After you manually change it one-time, it will work fine.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Using 24.3, I see this error message all the time: "partially selected objects cannot be set as key objects" when I am just selecting points. A reproducible case is when I am selecting points in a compound path such that the selected points comprise an entire sub-path in the compound path. I'm not trying to set a key object. The Align to Key Objects choice in the Align panel is not selected. If I tell Illustrator not to show me the error message, it beeps pretty continuously while the object is partially selected, and some things don't work. Please fix!
