    ... Yup. That's what I said. :)

    Mike W. - You can't highlight the text to apply Michael's work around. This still doesn't work for an actual text stroke. However, you can do as he suggests by applying an additional fill and stroke to the selected box that contains the text in the appearance panel. Essentially, you'll end up with your type as a certain color fill, and then you'll have an additional fill and stroke on top of it for the selected text box (which means that you won't change your actual text color but rather your text box's appearance fill/stroke if you want to change colors for the text). Hopefully that makes sense.

    Agree with custom settings, but mostly, I just want the settings to save to the file and not be a global setting! It would save me so much time.

    AGREED! I can't tell you how many times I've gone back to a file and saved it to the wrong folder... or saved it with the wrong prefix... or saved the wrong file type. This is especially problematic when I have multiple projects that require multiple proofs. I have retype/select the same information over and over each time I switch between files/projects.

    Dirk, Thanks for your response. I use Export for Screens when doing these types of things. I had not noticed the Convert to Outlines under the Font drop-down under the cog wheel options. Are there ever more than two options for this drop-down (mine only gives me two - "SVG" and "Convert to Outlines" - but I wasn't sure if this was dependent on something)?

    If that drop-down only ever has two options, I think it should be a simple checkbox at the bottom instead (where not checked is the SVG option).

    If I'm understanding this correctly, I heartily agree. An option to "convert all text to outlines" when exporting as SVG would save a lot of time, especially for creating web-ready SVGs with both text and graphics. I could open a file, change the text (that is still text so I don't have to remember what font/size I'd used previously), and export for web in a couple of seconds.

    You can do this on an individual basis with the measure tool (bundled under the eye-dropper tool) - unless you're asking for something different?

    YES. Especially when processing 250 illustrator files with different file names that need to remain in the exported file names. Having to copy/paste the file name into the prefix box is highly time consuming and invites errors (which is bad when you're exporting files for web that need to have exactly the same file name in order to simply replace the files without having to edit your code).

    Please please please add this feature!
