    The intended way of setting a default font is to edit document profiles. These files are located in folders like 'C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 2023\Support Files\Required\New Document Profiles\[language]\' on Windows and 'Macintosh HD > Applications ▸ Adobe Illustrator 2020 > Support Files > New Document Profiles > [language]' on Macs.

    Make a copy of the one you want to use someplace else, open it in Illustrator, make your changes, replace the original and then use it when creating a new file.

    There are many tutorials on the web about managing these, like this one: https://productivista.com/new-document-profiles-saves-your-default-settings/

    However, this way indeed is not the most discoverable. Please continue to vote and leave comments if you want this to be improved.

    There is no true PDF Export in Illustrator, because Illustrator allows to have editable PDFs with .ai-content stored within. Other apps does not allow that, and some users heavily rely on editable PDFs.

    Attemps to solve this were made, but there is no clear solution so far. Still we hope to find one.

    The intended way to get a PDF (without loosing your data) at the moment would be to use Save a Copy command that saves a separate copy of your file to PDF instead of Save As which keeps a saved file open.

    Hi Everyone,

    All the effect checkboxes have now been set to ON by default, and are sticky (meaning that if you disable preview, on next launch of Illustrator preview will remain disabled). This functionality now is available in our latest release build – 24.1.1 for Win and 24.1 for Mac which is available worldwide now.

    What’s new in 24.1: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/whats-new.html

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

    Thank you for all the feedback.

    +10 completely agree. With every dialog box I open that has a Preview button the first step is to turn the preview. Can you please change the default OR make it so that my preference (of Preview On) is remembered for each dialogue box?

    It is not as straightforward as it may sound :) We have been working to take advantage of threads and other hardware such as GPU/Video RAM in places where it can make a higher impact. We are prioritizing areas that are slow instead of making a generic change and destabilizing the product. Product stability is the top priority for us and we have been consistently trying to improve it. We want to move with caution and make changes without compromising on the quality. Hope this helps.

    This seems like a an obvious and overdue architectural improvement with CPU performance mostly skewed towards adding additional cores these days.

    The Dimension Tool is now live with 28.1.0.141 version of Illustrator.


    This is just a beginning of it and the team is going to improve it further.

    The intention is not to replace the existing specialized plugins completely, but to give a robust and integrated way for the majority of users to create dimensions.


    Please make new requests and upvote existing ones, report bugs if you find them — all these are monitored and really help to shape the experience. Happy dimensioning!

    Simply being able to set a scale value, ie. 1mm = 100mm would be super helpful. I work at 1:100 all the time and it's pretty annoying that there isn't better support for this.

    Not just Windows. Same for Mac - really annoying. I commonly create a .ai file then save as .pdf and later can't tell which is which in the Open Recent Files menu. I like the suggestion of, "An alternative solution would be to truncate the name but keep the file extension visible (or use some other icon to indicate the filetype)."

    Just thought about adding this feature request and realised I've already done it. But I definitely agree with myself from the first time!
