    Gold is reflective. Every reflective material needs something to reflect.
    Substance uses some environment maps (the material’s thumbnail on the site shows it clearly), to quickly fake lighting conditions.
    Illustrator does not use one, and the only thing you object reflects (except for just white void) — is the object itself.

    Try to apply this material to something a bit more complex than just a rectangle/box, for it to have crevices and bends, to get self-reflections, and it will look much more closer to what you expect.
    Then, open Lighting tab and drop the Ambient Light’s Intensity to ~5%.
    Add more light sources, and change their parameters.
    Drop it on black.
    Treat it like a jewelry photographer :)

    It won’t ever make it look exactly like the Substance’s gallery shows it, but more interesting than before (the attached image definitely needs more post-processing).

    But if you wish to have a way for AI to support HDRI lighting — please request it.
    The real solution would be to model something fast in Ai, if you wish, but then export and render the object is something more 3D-dedicated. Ai is a vector editor in its core, so don’t put high hopes on raster 3D in it.

    Can’t make it break the same way still :(
    I also tried to change the size of handles and toggle some other options — no luck.
    But since it clearly sucks, I wish to dig more.

    Perhaps it’s something live shapes mess with?
    What if you convert these into mere paths from shapes?
    Object > Shape > Expand Shape?

    Does it help to disable corner widgets?
    What other snapping options do you have enabled? Snap to Glyph maybe? Snap to Point?
    Please try to see if anything influence this.

    Oh. Can’t make it happen.
    Can you please share the test file?
    Also — what settings do you enabled in Preferences > Smart Guides? Please show a screenshot.

    Dennis, same is true for TIFF.
    It’s not technically a bug, but I agree this should be addressed.
    The fact Photoshop does handle these better — well, being a raster-first editor, it should. Ai is just lagging with libraries, I suppose.
    Voted.

    Indeed, Acrobat has these from the box.

    I tried to create an appearance to have a similar look in Illustrator — and I think I somewhat succeeded (but with a great help of effects from Astute Graphics). It’s still not foolproof, unfortunately, and does not get created with a dedicated tool with a simple drag, needs a group and two styles, but is usable.

    Upvoting this. Thanks for requesting it.

    You’d probably like a similar request on connector lines: http://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/34436683

    Try to reproduce it, but on my Windows machine, does not happen for me... I try to select larger chunks, smaller but more chunks, a lot of large chunks — still is stable, nothing crashes. When it does for you — do you get a crash reporter window? If yes — do you send a report? If yes — do you use the same email you have for this account on UserVoice?

    All at once (which is expected, due to how large canvas is constructed), or each element get scaled separately?

    Strange. Let’s see what can go wrong...
    Please demonstrate how it works in a video or a GIF. Make sure you have the Character panel opened and visible in the video frame.
    Also — does it behave the same it you make Point Type instead of Area Type (that is just click the canvas with Type tool instead of creating an area)?
    Does it happen in one document only or in a brand new document as well?

    Jim, what is a practical purpose of having such a feature?
    Technically, Illustrator allows to make several copies of anything, each copy reduced by 10%, with the Transform effect applied, like the attached image demonstrates.

    Rebecca, indeed, the team recently changed the way generation of SVGs works, following their long-term plan to unify SVG methods AI uses into one. From now on it should be based on Export As method. It solves a lot problems: generation speed, background generation, code readability, file size, redundant XML elements, compact CSS styling... the list is large, although I am not sure if Adobe ever published it publicly :(

    And it definitely breaks some workflows!
    Can you please bundle the files necessary to demonstrate your case (including original files, examples of the output before the changes and the current one, settings used), and send it over to sharewithai@adobe.com — the team would like to see these.

    Do you cook? :)

    Imagine you want to make a meal.
    You open a fridge, you grab the products you need, you put them on the table, grab a knife, cut products, cook them.
    Sure, some don’t do that :) They run back to fridge every time (and they don’t upvote this probably).

    Swatches panel is a 'fridge'

    Take a look at how Von organizes his Swatches: https://youtu.be/aDnoMHs32-o
    These are swatches he puts in a template and use across some of his projects.
    Sure the illustration doesn’t need ALL of these.
    So he 'puts chosen swatches on canvas' — like products — and cook with them only.

    Take a look at the video above, from 28:40 specifically (https://youtu.be/aDnoMHs32-o?t=1720)

    Swatches Panel can’t have these as large as he wants them to be.
    We can’t make Swatches panel to hide some.
    There is no way to quickly detach some colors into a floating panel.
    Swatches are separated with thin lines and if prevents us from seeing how they react to each other.
    We can’t make one swatch larger than other to set a ratio of colors (like Von does even later in the video — see image 1).

    This image 1 is what artists do at the image 2.
    And Swatches — is image 3.
    And what is requested here — is image 4.

    Meanwhile, Sergey Osokin made a script, ColorToner, that automates making shades-tints-tones, with a great range of options: customizable steps and purity, text legend, size and gaps, preview, adding to swatches, etc.
    Worth having if you are into this workflow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-MK0bEbD78

    This is not a panel, but may be this script I made could help somebody from 368 users who voted for this?
    It will place selected swatches (or all if none are selected) as a group of colored rectangles wit a set dimension.

    It looks almost like Swatch Libraries palettes you can open and enlarge swatches to a not that big a size. So ti's almost there already.
    Gap options, larger size for squares, and easier way to create and save and manage these windows.

    I have a strong suspicion the text is written using a chatbot... feels watered-down, like wrapped in bubble wrap :)

    Anyway, thank for the request. Please try to log one idea per entry form now on, to help the developers to prioritize things.

    Illustrator allows some of these things mentioned.

    Color and stroke can be changed if a symbol is a dynamic one (by default) opposed to static. If you mean to improve it, please share clear examples and explanations (just 'like Figma' is not a good one).

    Text — indeed, dynamic symbols don’t allow type. There is a separate request about this here, please upvote it: http://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/31234753

    Variables to create themes are mentioned in several requests:
    http://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/42556654
    http://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/46267969

    Also, a free script exists, written by Sergey Osokin, to support themes based on color groups, ColorGroupReplacer: https://github.com/creold/illustrator-scripts/blob/master/md/Color.md#colorgroupreplacer — it does not require symbols.

    9-slice improvements bit needs further explanations from you.
    Please share why you need this in Illustrator and what do you try to solve.
    Feel free to record some videos or GIFs from Figma, if it helps to explain what you try to achieve.

    Has no news on this, sadly :(
    Generally reports with lower vote count are not prioritized very high internally — and this one is sub 10 even.
    Sorry, I can’t do anything to change it. Voting is the only way we can influence this.

    The only workaround is still to covert a live line to a path with Object > Shape > Expand Shape before cutting and converting it back after.

    Richard, does it look like this to you?
    This a definitely a bug then!
    The middle dot the live line has in the middle stays in place when a line is cut, while it should be repositioned in the middle of the cut segment. I assume Illustrator steal treats the new live line as if it has the same bounds, and when you scale the segments it gets treated as if you scaled the whole original path ...but with the gap on the left.
    How bizzarre!

    Thank you for you patience with this.
    A workaround would be to expand the live shape first and scale the line as an ordinary path — Object > Shape > Expand Shape.

    Thanks for the images.
    That’s a completely different thing than I imagined.
    Still, I can’t reproduce it.

    So I have a long line (which is not a 'line' being a 'live shape', judging byt the look of your bounding box, but just a path). It is as large as a normal document allows (5779,558 mm, I work in metric units). I give it a fat stroke, I cut it, I switch to Selection tool (black arrow), I try top scale it.

    Except for the missing a side marker (which is a separate bug logged), everything works just fine.

    Perhaps it’s the file? Can you put it here in the comments? I am eager to learn what gets broken.

    AdminEgor Chistyakov (Admin, Adobe Illustrator) commented  · 

    Richard, I can’t really reproduce it.
    As I understand it, you mean Scissors tool selects one of the points created only, and not the cut piece as a whole, right? And when you try to resize the resulting path (with bounding box’s handles), Ai scales only the point?

    It does not happen for me. When I switch from the Scissors to Selection tool, the partial selection stays, but the transformation applies to the whole path. If I do this with something like Free Transform tool or Scale tool — yes, there is a differences, both behave in their own ways: Free Transform scales only this one point (both its handles and coordinates using an opposite corner as a pivot), Scale transforms only its handles basically. But you mean just using the bounding box frame’s markers, right?

    So... a video or a GIF is needed. Use something like Sharex or GifCam or LICEcap to record one.

    Strange. Needs to be reviewed directly, I think.
    Please package the file via File > Package command and send the archive with the project to sharewithai@adobe.com for the team to look at it. Add the link to this report for tracking purposes (http://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447/suggestions/48266030).

    My guess is that something has changed font-wise: perhaps the font you used got deleted or moved or something else happened to it, and it got substituted with a font that differs severely, and is way larger than the original one... can’t confirm it though.
