    Need More Info  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    Please share your thoughts on the following:

    1. Would it make sense to have a separate desktop app, just to create charts, and bring them inside Illustrator or InDesign? It may not be on cloud.

    2. Or would you rather have us work on building it within Illustrator?

    Thanks
    Yogesh

    Hey @Yogesh why ask and then not even provide us with an update or any other response for over 3 years? This is infuriating.

    @Ian Aberle HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Yes - make better bar graphs by not using Illustrator's built in bar graph feature because it's terrible. This is also a terrible solution - good luck manually entering in and placing the data at the right size. Better build a very high resolution grid.

    Adobe - you've topped yourself this time. This is truly embarrassing.

    Interesting Update: In Nicolas's other thread, user Richard de Garis had this to say:

    It appears that Adobe are researching a radical overhaul of charting through www.data-illustrator.com.
    But there is a woeful lack of update communications. In this time of open communication, public beta testing, public road maps, etc. it seems like Adobe are playing it cool with super-secrecy.
    I think the Illustrator faithful deserve some news on this topic from Adobe.
    BTW, Microsoft are researching charting with www.charticulator.com. I really hope we get something to work with in the next Illustrator update.

    Oh my god thank you so much for sharing this Richard, something like this would have been great to hear from Adobe.

    100%

    This stupid tool is an embarrassment. It hasn't been updated in 20 years. That's ridiculous.

    20 years?! That is a disgrace. I'm sure glad they prioritized such things as "New Home Screen" (WOW), "Content Aware Crop" (which we could do in PS), and "Stock Photo Licensing" (which we could do from a browser).

    Project Lincoln would be great. A beta would be great. An experience like XD for charts would be great if it isn't going to be built directly into illustrator. I'm fine with either at this point.

    I suggest we tweet at Adobe Illustrator as well (@Illustrator). I used hashtags such as #Dataviz #UX #UserExperience #UPDATE #ListenToUs #Embarrassing

    I agree with @Ian and @Nicolaas. Ridiculous that using data to create graphs is still such an issue with an when illustrator is used extensively for this and the calls are clear that it needs to be improved.

    The UI is so antiquated and subpar. Honestly, it's embarrassing for a company that prides itself on UX to ignore this for so long. Not even simple improvements, just completely ignoring the issue for what, well over a decade? There isn't even a functional alternative within the Adobe suite. This is the only way to make charts in the Adobe workflow. It's crazy.

    Please fix this Adobe. I don't know how much longer I can put up with this before moving to a different suite entirely as 50% of my time in illustrator is spent using this infuriating tool.

    I guess no update on Project Lincoln then, huh?
