    I would like to see this as well. but.. I don't think fonts are embedded into ai files if pdf is off.
    so unless you save with PDF on which we don't for 99% of the files we work on, they your out of luck without the actual font.
    next..
    I believe there is a flavor of pdf that you can export with acrobat that will outline fonts.. Don't remember how but I remember something about it.
    good luck..
    PS.. I would also love a outline on open/import as well.

    how about selectable opening options. when opening a pdf, add checkboxes for flattening, outlining text and even unembedding images. Cant wait to see this

    I disagree.. you should use the correct font or unlock your layers.. We lock layers for a reason so they DO NOT get modified...

    agreed.. at work here with over a dozen other creative suite users and we are all saying the same thing.. HOW ANNOYING!!!
    A simple preference would suffice.

    John, while I agree with you 100%, Illustrator has major performance issues.. I can open the same pdf on multiple pdf editors but Illustrator is the only one that lags and shows beachballs constantly. Illustrator is currently multi processor aware so its not that.. (look at Activity Monitor.. it shows all cores being used), I believe that the code written is so bloated that its like trying to find a needle in a haystack every time you need to do something.. Better optimizations, rewriting parts at a time?? I think it needs a major cleanup.. Ive been using illustrator since version '88 so I do have experience in this matter.

    We save without PDF content . files are tiny... Also. if I save to desktop, its almost instant.. save on network drive.. its slow..
    Scratch set local... SSD
    Work in outline mode and minimize link and layers pallet whenever possible to add a little speedup..

    This is an Illustrator issue. Photoshop has no problems whatsoever. We run off a full 1GB network.. work of the server for everything.. NO issues except for Illustrators massive lag.. Its a common issue.. They even understand its an issue because they technically do not support working in Illustrator over a network. Ive been doing it for 15 years. And yes Ive checked our network speeds.. they are fine for everything but AI.. a 10 meg file shouldn't take 30 seconds to save. Period!! I can save a 1 GB Photoshop file in under 15 seconds on the same volume. so.. NO.. its not a network issue. Its the way Illustrator works.. we would like to have full compatibility with network usage.

    I guess I see your point.. so you want them to add the PDF option to both save as and export.
    Save as would keep the newly saved PDF file as your open document and Export to PDF would export a PDF file keeping the original file you had opened open.

    I don't understand.. if I want to save a file as a pdf.. I hit
    Save as pdf and click ok..then select the flavor I want.
    simple to me.. whats the problem..
    Illustrator uses PDF as a native format or illustrator.. thats why its in Save as and not as an export function.
    Am I missing something?
    I have never lost a file saving to PDF.
    I prefer saving as .ai files.
    so basically all this is about having to reopen the .ai file. I don't even think about it and I've been using illustrator since version '88.

    I could be wrong but that only helps for ai file when pdf compatibility is checked.
    For native ai files without pdf checked I believe it does NOT work.

    Why should I pay someone else to look at Adobes files. I pay enough to Adobe I should be able to quick look at the files.. Adobe.. are you listening?? Just because ArtView 2 works doesn't mean its the correct way of doing things. Nice to see another company pick up the slack tho where Adobe has fallen short.

    Why has this not been implemented already.. This is a basic fundamental MacOS feature that Adobe should support.!!

    Easy fix!!
    YOU DON'T DESIGN INSIDE OF INDESIGN..!!
    Indesign is a page layout tool.. Illustrator is a design tool!.. Photoshop is an image tool..
    It stinks you loose layers but as you said.. use the program thats designed for what each is.
    I work in a prepress house NOBODY designs in Indesign!! We DO NOT accept Indesign files for production files. Period!
    That being said.. select all copy paste or export to PDF is the only way to go between the two programs..
    I think you can purchase plugins for it but not worth the money.

    Use Indesign. 25 years of using AI an I personally have never needed that.. Not that its not ever useful.. but they need to work on more important things... how hard is it to add a 1 to the corner of a document. Also, I bet there is a script out there somewhere.. might be a good idea to look.
    here is one link I found. https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2395987

    unless I am wrong.. on the Mac when you hold the option or command key and left click on the lock icon on the layer you want, all other layers lock.. is this what you are looking for? works as well for the eyeball on viewing layers.
