    @Luis I actually took steps toward what you mentioned and purchased all 3 of the Serif/Affinity apps during the holiday bundle offer and got them less than paying Adobe for 2 months of service. It's not a direct replacement but will be soon.

    5GB AI file? Easy. Work in advertising.

    Step 1: Make sure you have multiple artboards with several layouts that each include linked images
    Step 2: Save with PDF compatibility enabled
    Step 3: (Pro tip) take it a step further by disabling compression.

    If you follow these steps, you'll be on your way to large AI files if you take advantage of Illustrator's features besides its original vector drawing tools.

    My suggestion is to (always) disable PDF compatibility when saving working files unless you need to send an AI to someone who doesn't have Illustrator, which in that case it's probably best to send a PDF. The downside to this is that the file's preview is disabled. Of course, if you're files are typically small and you rarely use raster images in Illustrator, then none of this really applies.

    I agree that this should be implemented.

    When creating a new document or artboard that requires three decimal places for imperial measurement, the artboard properties panel rounds to hundredths (two decimal places) even though the measurement of thousandths (three decimal places) is retained.

    Although I have been familiar with this for several years, I am often reminded when press-ready files come back from a print vendor where the prepress technician isn't familiar with this rounding issue and flags it with errors inducing further delay. A very common print format this occurs in is magazines with specs of 8.375x10.875. Although most layouts are laid out with InDesign, there are many times where one-off pages or ads are output from Illustrator.
