    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    Dear Users,

    Hope you are well and safe during these uncertain times. We at Adobe wish you well.

    I am glad to announce that we have completed this feature in Beta and are actively seeking your feedback to help us understand if this feature meets your workflow needs.

    All the users who subscribed to our pre release program would have received an email from me to welcome you to our new Beta program. The new Beta program gives you access to the Large Canvas feature and also seeks your feedback through the survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7ZDMD5L

    This survey link can also be accessed within the app.

    For everybody else, I would ask you to join our pre release program (https://www.adobeprerelease.com/beta/85A6F544-2705-49BD-8314-DD549C6A1713#) and we will give you access to the new beta program. We hope each one of you is able to try the new build and give us feedback.

    Look…

    "Anonymous" This is the top feature request and a major limitation for the large format industry (which has a market size of approximately 45 billion dollars and should exceed your .0001% estimate of users)

    An anonymous comment calling this feature request "useless commenting" is what is actually useless commenting.

    Anon, You probably want to clear any guides that extend to the canvas limit or hidden objects grouped into what you're scaling.

    Objects falling off the drawing area is a real pain with Illustrators archaic canvas limitations

    The engineers at Adobe just do not care as it only adds more work for them and the company's corporate decision makers rely on their huge market share.

    They're more focused on gaining ground in other markets with the ridiculous collaborative apps that they keep adding/killing and promoting their idiotic events.

    Adobe has no incentive to add real requested features or fix its outdated core programs. They just are not the company for creators anymore.

    Your only real alternative is to switch to a company like Serif that make Affinity Designer and Photo. They do actually listen to their community and it's so refreshing!

    First: I am the printer and the designer. Illustrator cut off the artwork with it's inability to properly handle large scale output.

    The logic of blaming the customer for product shortcomings has never worked from a business stand point. Adobe should have extended this a decade ago when 64 bit processors were becoming common, instead of lagging behind.

    Where do I send the bill for $724.00 for the print error caused by adobe's inability to scale large format?

    I think Serif (Affinty Designer) is going to do to Adobe what Adobe did to QuarkXpress with inDesign. Every update recently seems to only bring issues and not address the decades long complaints or requests.

    Why doesn't Adobe seem to have the ability to extend the canvas when 64-bit has been common place for so long? Why doesn't Illustrator have color manipulation similar to photoshop, but a plug-in like Phantasm can do it?? Why can't adobe find a simple centerline of a shape or font? Why can't adobe create a vector oblique projection?

    Because they're focused on changing the rotation dialogue box...

    I can't even remember how many times that I've worked with people that confused 1:10 scale to 1:12 scale (1 foot = 1 inch) or vice versa to the tune of thousands in misprinted materials.

    There are other annoyances with canvas limitations that I don't see mentioned, like copy pasting with a guide line that extends the length of the canvas "Can't paste because some of the artwork falls off the canvas" error ><

    @Yasmim Not with Illustrator. But every other vector based design software does not have this archaic limitation. Affinity Designer is a great alternative, Corel draw has been around for years as well as any industry specific software.

    I've been asking this for 20 years lol. Adobe hates the large and grand format industry. If they only knew how much they've cost me over the years in scaling issues.

    Daniel, if you change your working dpi: Effects/Document Raster effects.../100 ppi Your life is going to be a whole better in wide format.

    For interior wall signage/tradeshow I personally stick to 300, but that never gets to the physical sizes of exterior.

    Daniel, you need to to set your raster effects down 100 ppi. 600 is not for large format. 300 dpi is for less than a meter of intended viewing distance.

    That's the only reason you're getting those huge file sizes and it is not improving the quality of your rooftop sign design.

    You can now link ai files inside illustrator files so that you wouldn't need to even touch Id. Have a composing ai linking to all of the ai/psd assets.

    But whatever your workflow adobe should be utilizing multi core CPUs in Illustrator. I have 16 cores that are begging to be pushed.

    Need More Info  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    A couple of questions on this:

    1. Would it be okay to have a separate spec creation service much like the upcoming Adobe XD service? On this service, anyone with a link, can select any objects, and view its dimensions (W/H), colors, fonts etc. Or should it be inside Illustrator.

    2. Are you only going to create horizontal, and vertical dimensions? Or would you also like to have angular dimensions as well?

    Please share more details about your workflow.

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

    I'm not sure if someone has mentioned this, but Astute graphics has a plugin called VectorScribe that adds measurements for this exact application. They have a lot of plugins at Astute that should be standard features of illy (like Phantasm)

    How is this not fixed yet??

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Mike commented  · 

    I usually hit r, enter, the degrees I want to rotate and enter. A temporary work-around until they fix this is hitting r, enter, tab, Shift+tab to get to the dialog box then the degrees, enter.

    Of course the additional steps will be in my muscle memory when they fix which will trip me up again...

    Is this issue going to get addressed? Between this and Photoshops change in constrained proportions this last update was designed to just make me crazy
