NOTE: this comment is not about scaling down for proofing purposes. I've got that covered just fine.
I'm working with a very large watercolor art file (not vector) that was created by another designer in photoshop. The production company needs a banner that is 420" x 36" in Ai file format in actual size (not scaled down.) Illustrator tops out it's width at 227.541". Photoshop does not appear to be topping out and I'm able to make the 420". I was planning on working with the watercolor artwork in PS and saving it as an image, then importing it into Ai to add the text and logos, etc as vectors. Now I have to do the whole thing in Photoshop and I'm sure the production company will complain that I didn't follow their rediculous instructions. So yes, in rare cases of unreasonable production company specs, having Ai without the restricted canvas size would have been helpful. Hopefully, the crappy PC laptop my employer gave me will even be able to handle this file size in PS. Good luck to me!
PS - not attaching a file for reference because it would take years to upload.
