    Not likely to be addressed. Font management has its own corner of the market already with a pretty devoted set of users. Google it for some top options. If you're on a Mac and want something easy and cheap but better than Fontbook (default), I recommend Typeface—well worth the $10.

    Easy—record an action. Object>artboards>fit to artwork bounds. Set your actions panel to "button mode" and you've just solved your own problem, sir.

    Great idea! In the interim, I'd record a few actions with the dimensions you like, click the hamburger icon in the Actions panel, and select "button mode" for quick execution. Might even be easier than your eyedropper idea.

    opt+cmd+shift+D

    Or right-click your selection and choose "Transform Each" from the context menu. I feel like the current dialogue addresses your needs so you might have to be more specific. Alternative you can make use of Symbols to link attributes to a single instance of an object.

    No experience with CAD files so I have no idea if this addresses your needs: suppose you have two overlapping elements—holding down cmd (on Mac) and clicking a top-level object allows you to select the object right underneath it. Sort of like clicking "through" the top object.

    Yes this is utterly dumb. Probably one of the top Illustrator behaviors that I'm prepared to be downright mean about, which is not a normal thing for me. I'm a very nice person. But I can't think of an instance where I've thought "oh, thank goodness, I can select this object by it's shadow/glow/whatever!"

    Yeah I feel like Adobe has put TONS of emphasis on something that's woefully underpowered. Can't tell you how many times I want to access an asset without having to create a blank doc for no reason, but that's honestly easier than navigating the Assets web page. Consider creating a version of Bridge, but for graphic designers. And, unlike Bridge, make it useful. Lingo is a great example of an app doing asset management well—having a native application with Adobe integration can only be that much better.

    I get Egor's point. I think it's safe to say a majority of us find the behavior annoying but everyone wins if you just implement a modifier key or a setting in the preferences should you decide to alter the behavior.

    Yeah it's there, Adobe just doesn't make the feature particularly apparent. Naming the feature "variables" instead of something everyone is familiar with like "data/data merge/etc." is a bit beyond me. So just do that—rename the stupid feature and high-five yourselves :)

    Yeah I never understood why Photoshop—a raster-based application known for digital painting and photo manipulation—got this feature before Illustrator. I have all kinds of thoughts on people using Ps for UI/logo/icon work suited for a vector-based application (like, you know, Illustrator) and Adobe erroneously enabling the somewhat misguided use of their apps by bloating the **** out of Ps with features, but I'll spare you.

    We have passed this request along to Grammarly and that while Grammarly thought it would be useful, they’re unable to prioritize it at this time.

    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

    Yeah assuming Project Lincoln still stands, your suggesting is being addressed :)
