    If this is another way of saying "make this thing multi-threaded" then count me in!

    Egor - you're right! I grabbed the script, it's nice.

    But yeah, it shouldn't be necessary.

    This this this! I'm always needing shortcuts for things that can't be shortcutted or even recorded in actions.

    Right now, I'm wanting a shortcut for reversing stroke direction. That can't be made into a shortcut so I try recording an action. It doesn't pick up selecting alternate ends of the path as an action, so I try "swap start and end arrowheads". That picks up the entire stroke appearance and applies it every time I run the action, so that's no good.

    So yeah... assignable keyboard shortcuts for everything would be great.

    Well I've been keeping an eye on this site and you do seem to post more than anyone else :D

    Amazingly, I don't think I actually disagree with anything you've said and often your comments are spot on.

    From the way in which features have been added to, and neglected, in Illustrator, it appears to me as though they're lacking someone with a detailed real-world understanding of how these tools are used - and that's exactly what we, as customers, really need them to have.

    Interesting approach, guess it depends what you're making. For regular 2D shapes I can definitely see why you'd want to be able to hot-key the reference point position. I tend to just flip about the vertical axis (with an action, as you say).

    RE persistent pivot point: you've really thought this through, I'm impressed, I agree with your specification. How will it work with the 9-point system? I don't know, you'll come up with a way :p

    ADOBE: Your customers need you to hire this guy. He knows Illustrator inside out, has an eye for detail and thinks things through. As a customer, I'd be a lot more confident in Adobe's future potential to meet my team's needs if I knew someone like this was looking after the tools in Illustrator.

    Hmm - how would it work? For me, hotkeys for sending the reference point up/down/left/right wouldn't be that helpful. However, simply having a key that picks up the reference point and sets it down wherever you click would be great. Even more so if that reference point actually saved with the object for the next transformation.

    Maddy, the only other thing I know to try is to turn off PDF compatibility when saving, and if there are any high resolution raster images in your file, try removing those. You could also try the steps I listed above. For now, I've got round the issue by just simplifying my artwork and not having multiple artboards per file.

    Hi Mohit, many thanks for the reply - unfortunately I can't share any of the files I'm currently having this problem with (NDA). Though I still can't find any particular reason for the file bloating, I have found a workaround which is to work off artboard and occasionally to transfer the content to a new file. The same content which which was previously in a 131MB file is currently 18MB, but it's growing with each save at a rate beyond what I'd expect for the complexity of the file.

    Once things are less busy I'll see about replicating the problem in a another file which I can share.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Here's something. I've got 2 hugely bloated files, one 70.5MB and the other 131.6MB. If I simply move the artwork off the artboards, those file sizes shrink to 33.8MB and 64.8MB respectively.

    Oh, another weird thing is that those two files contain identical artwork in the same format, they've just been moved around and saved differently.

    I'd expect the file size to be closer to 20MB... but I'll be needing artboards! Hmm.

    Note - this is not the same feature as "3D visualisation of art / Ability to visualize the art on a 3D modell" https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-feature-requests/suggestions/31362271-3d-visualization-of-art although that would be cool too

    I would like to see Illustrator’s 3D capability expanded to include importing 3D models into the artboard with some basic transformations and lighting. Nothing particularly fancy. Say for example I wanted a car model in my composition, I could bring it in and tweak it to fit the scene (scale it, rotate it, adjust the light colour and angle). I absolutely love the ‘3D extrude and bevel’ effect – it has become an essential, powerful part of my workflow, and 3D objects would be on another level of useful to the team.

    Intelligent 2D vectorisation of 3D models (expanding) would also be awsome. Rather than just generating a huge pile of paths and clipping masks (or simply rasterising), I want it to only output the barest minimum number of paths, compound shapes, and points, uniting adjacent surfaces as it goes, preferably without clipping masks. Additionally, I’d like it to keep shadow/lighting information in a separate multiply group above, with the unlit surface paths underneath. The shadow colour would be added to swatches as a global colour. I'm not aware of any programs out there doing this particular feature at all nicely, no doubt for a reason (it's hard?) but still... I can wish ;).
