    Lance is 50% correct so please keep that mind. The files WILL NOT be larger. No file will ever be as large using the current default. We want to save using the better formats like PDF/X4:2008. And I have no idea why he's fixated on InDesign.. this has NOTHING to do with it.

    There are a couple of considerations to be made here:

    1. When you save/close a PDF (with Ai editing capabilities), open it back, make some edits and press Cmd+S (Save), original PDF settings are preserved. I am assuming there are no expectations of changing this behavior.

    2. Same document, when Saved As (copy), the PDF options dialog picks up the settings embedded in the PDF as the starting point. Users can then change it. By showing user’s last used setting (as requested in this report), it would not be possible to populate PDF‘s embedded setting in the dialog.

    Please share if this is an acceptable change.

    Thanks,
    Illustrator Team

    If you have a file that takes 5 minutes to save you need to consider linking files you drop in and not embedding. You also need to look at the files you are placing (assuming photos)... you don't need a 12x12@300ppi .psd if you are using it at 3" wide in your layout - thats just a lot of unneeded resolution clogging up the process. I do some complicated layouts (like a 48 page catalog with around 80 photos) and thats about a 2 minute save.

    Am I missing what the issue is here? I do this all the time, have for years. Copy, switch file, paste in front (make sure active artboard number is the same on both files)... I just copied and pasted 12 web ads from one file to another, they are all different sizes. As long as the the new file I am switching to has the same artboards, same size, arranged the same, there is no issue (which is easy to maintain, just use arrange artboards with same row config and space inbetween)

    It's not difficult, Admin has no interest in working on this since it's not web related. Doesn't have to be anything-aware, we should be able to TURN OFF HYPHENATION and it stays off forever. We should also be able to specify _____ font as default, change the default PDF setting, and be able to save files that ARE NOT 6X TIMES LARGER THAN THE CONTENT OF THE FILE.

    Guess I should better attention. I've downloaded the last two pre-release builds and then not installed them. And after the last terrible terrible update to Photoshop I've decided to slow my boat on blind updating. Thanks though Cameron, I'll will use this .ai update.

    We ALL need to jump into the next prerelease broadcast and flood our TOP 3 NEEDS in the chat stream.. this would probably be #1. Larger artboard #2, and background file saving #3.

    Before you post in this thread that you've "found a trick" or "try this"... please understand most of us already know all this information. WE KNOW HOW TO CREATE PDF PRESETS. We don't want to create any more. We want the ability to modify the DEFAULT.

    PLEASE NO MORE POSTS SAYING "DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN..." WE KNOW. WE KNOW A LOT. WE'VE WRITTEN POSTSCRIPT, ACTIONS, RIDERS FOR SEPARATIONS, ROTATED TEXT BEFORE IT WAS POSSIBLE, FIXED CORRUPTED FILES, DONE 4-COLOR SEPS IN ILLUSTRATOR IN VS 3.2 WHEN ADOBE DIDN'T IT POSSIBLE... AND ON AND ON AND ON.

    WE WANT TO EDIT THE DEFAULT... PERIOD. WE WOULD ALSO LIKE A BUTTON IN THE TOOL BOX THAT SAVES A QUICK PDF TO THE DESKTOP... (at least I do).

    This is really really what we need. You define your own default pdf settings, then click one icon in the tool bar and a pdf of that doc (saved like this: file name_1 for artboard 1, etc) is saved to your desktop. For this document alone I have to go thru the pdf process 22 times to get 22 separate pdfs for coop submissions (and no its not faster to create 1 pdf then have acrobat split into 22 docs and then rename each).

    Deep down I just wish Adobe would realize many of are out here working very fast, not slow and steady and relaxed. FAST-HECTIC-STRESSED-MANIC type speed working.

    Dave... some of us out here are under enormous pressure and work 10-16 hours days in a constant rush. It's not a matter of selecting the nuances of a creating pdf like resolution and cropmarks/bleeds.. its just getting a client a proof fast and then moving to the next of 30+ waiting jobs. I have custom presets established for the final pdf, its the 2-10 pdfs it might take before the job is approved thats an issue. As I have had said I would really like to have a "quick-pdf" on the tool menu that creates and saves a pdf to the desktop from whatever artboard I'm on. I seem to remember Pagemaker having this 15 years ago. May not sound like a big deal to hit command-option-s, pull down pdf, then pull down a pdf preset and hit enter - but add that up 70 times a day times a week. And if you don't pull down the preset properly you'll create a default pdf that is just SIZE STUPID. I showed in another feature wanted thread that ai will create a pdf MUCH larger than the combined elements in the ai. How the heck can 28megs of images and two lines of copy equal a 52meg pdf? We need a fast pdf option.

    Casual users and users in an agency setting that spend 1/3 of the day yucking it up with colleagues or riding a segway across the office while shooting hoops just won't understand this thread. The programmers fall into this category also... let them live a week in my shoes and they'll get it. )

    I send an average of 56 pdfs a day all week, often more. This needs to addressed. And I still think that a 'QUICK PDF" button would be even better... I think Pagemaker had this... i.e. you are working on a job, click a PDF icon in the tool palette and a PDF is automatically saved to the desktop.
