    This is a great idea, unfortunately they can't even get this right on the desktop version.

    @Rick: My comment about larger file sizes simply meant that with PDF compatibility selected, your AI file will be larger than if saved without. In my experience the files size does increase, not always much but sometimes substantially, when saved with PDF compatibility. Your experience may be different.

    It also always takes much longer to save the file with than without. I imagine that's highly dependent on the art you're working with though among other things I don't have a complete understanding of.

    As for InDesign: Jeremy's original post mentioned it as the reason for saving with PDF compatibility in the first place. Why else would you save an AI file with PDF compatibility? The only reason to do so is to make the file readable in other Adobe CC applications without native support for the illustrator file format. If you don't need that feature then it's easy enough to turn off and save the HDD space and save time.

    I completely agree with the request though, if the option is provided why isn't the option given to set which PDF standard/other settings to use for that portion of the file? It does make sense to include it for those users who regularly need to work with AI files as linked assets in InDesign or other CC applications.

    For anyone who comes here and is not familiar with the concept:

    When you save/create an AI file with Illustrator and have "PDF Compatible" setting ON, you're saving an AI file that contains a PDF as embedded data. When you place this file into inDesign, you're seeing the PDF data *not* the illustrator data.

    Similarly, when you save/create a PDF with Illustrator and have "illustrator edting" setting ON, you're saving a PDF file that contains the original illustrator file as "private data" within the PDF. When you place this file into inDesign, you're seeing the PDF data *not* the illustrator data.

    What's being requested is the ability to select a PDF joboptions (or PDF options preset) for the embedded PDF in the illustrator file so that you get exactly what you want in InDesign or similar.

    The only real downside to all of this is massively increased file sizes. Better bet would be to just export or save a PDF from illustrator as a finished artwork and place that into InDesign.

    I noticed that the document color is CMYK, but is not tagged with a profile. I couldn't find a way to assign a profile either.

    @Egor: inverting the color beneath the highlighted edges/handles is a very interesting idea. I'm not sure why I didn't think of that before, I use that cursor option in Windows.

    Glad you found my suggestions helpful. I'm going to vote for this anyway because I think some sort of accessibility features for colorblind folks would be a welcome addition one way or another.

    In addition to changing the handle size, have you tried changing the handles to the white/gray fill instead of the solid color? In Preferences under Selection & Anchor Display > Handle Style. Unfortunately that only changes the handles not the anchors.

    Something else that might help: Have you tried selecting a pre-existing layer color from the built in list, or creating a custom one? Double-click in the blank space to the right of the layer name (or use the layers pallet menu > options for "layerName". It'll give you a small dialog with options including the color list. At the top of that drop down list is "Custom..." which lets you choose any color you would like. That'll set the layer's color and subsequently the selected object's highlighted edges, handles, anchors etc. to something that would be easier for you to see.

    I use this pretty often when the default selected by illustrator is a poor contrast to the art I'm working on. I can usually find something in the list that works but it sounds like you'd get more use out of choosing custom colors.
