    It’s dangerous to call things Smart... When they behave dumb, the name sound like an insult. Sadly, this is the case.

    Please provide more specific cases, with video proofs, ask you colleagues to share and vote, to move this further. This is the way to force changes to things that are broken — be vocal and persistent. Thank you all and let’s hope we get heard.

    How are we going on this? Are we 'smartifying' the smart guides yet?

    Here you go Egor. Here's an almost blank Illustrator document showing guides fail epically.

    If you take note, you'll see that the first artboard is 1080x1080px and is perfeclty placed to the pixel.

    Even though Illustrator tells me the new artboard I'm creating is snapped to the top and bottom of the other artboard, it's a completely different size and isn't aligned to either top or bottom.

    This is a compounding issue due to the bug that adds extra pixels when exporting, so things quickly become a mess at no fault to the user.

    You can also see in the video that nothing I could have done would make the artboard snap. It basically refuses to snap.

    Hi Egor,

    I believe I know what the issue is, and I have a file that I can show you.
    However, as I work professionally I can't share the file here. It's private and I don't have rights to share.

    In summary however, I believe the issue is as follows:

    - The 'reach' of snapping in Illustrator is too broad. I believe smart guides often try to snap to anchors on other artboards.

    - The indicator to show that you're snapping to the artboard is not clear enough. It should be a different colour to show that you're snapping to the artboard edge instead of an anchor or other object that you can't see. Currently every snap indicator is pink

    - In fact, this would also come in handy when aligning to the artboard center or aligning artboards with each other. Often I see a centre pink smart guide line and think 'oh great I'm aligning to centre', but actually illustrator has picked some random anchor point on some complex shape to snap to.

    - Perhaps snapping should be separated out (have a separate Snap to Artboard function)
    OR
    - Prioritise snapping to the artboard edge when within 5 pixels or so.

    What I've found is that often when Illustrator is telling me that my object is placed against the edge, it's actually snapping to some other random object.

    You have to understand the communities frustrations. It's not always easy to capture this stuff, and we often can't share files due to sensitivity.

    +1. AI smart guides are the worst. Unline InDesigns which are amazing.
    If they think they've fixed the issue, I think they need to rethink how smart guides are handled in Illustrator. I'm on version 26 and it still SUCKS.

    Export for Screens isn't suitable for anything web related because it can't export small file size JPGs, and also doesn't have any customisable compression options nor the ability to create custom presets...

    'Export for Screens' is useless unless you can either:

    A) Manually select your own compression settings, or
    B) Create a custom export preset

    Darleen, no it doesn't!
    Ran a test to show how AI doesn't relink. See attached video.

    I try and avoid using Illustrator for this reason, but unfortunately it's the only Adobe vector based program that plays nice with After Effects and Animate.. if I could get away with using InDesign in conjunction with both of these, I'd do it in a heart beat.

    Illustrator doesn't even relink multiple instances of the same file automatically (screenshot attached)

    +1 : Illustrator should search folder for missing links when relinking like InDesign

    I am closing the ticket due to lack of response.
    Please get in touch with us at sharewithai@adobe.com or any of the other support channels – helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Please give a reference to this post so that we can identify you.
    Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

    When renaming artboards, I often see the first artboard revert to its original title. The first artboard labelled 'Zere' was renamed to 'O2' like all the other artboards, but reverted once I got to the end...

    I emailed Adobe support using the email provided above and have offered my computer to test so this ticket should be re-opened if it hasn't been already

    This is supposed to be in Illustrator (Desktop)

    I have this happen as well. Also, sometimes Art-board names disappear entirely.

    Screenshot showing an artboard that reverted to a previous title at random.

    - When renaming Artboards, some Artboards will revert to their original name at random. Especially present when copying and renaming artboards. It's most common for the FIRST artboard to revert to its original name

    - Sometimes when creating artboards, the name will be blank

    - When renaming artboards, CRTL + Z doesn't work the first time. Yet when you CTRL + Z again, both Undo's are actioned.

    - Sometimes, artboards will rename successfully, only for them to revert later or export for screens with the wrong names.

    Performance on the fully spec'd out 2019 Macbook Pro is terrible.

    Since Illustrator is the primary Adobe program with compatability with Animate and After Effects, we use it to create storyboards for animating. However, as soon as a couple of images are added the whole thing bogs down.

    Illustrator needs image quality scaling like InDesign (Typical, High Quality etc)

    Snapping is fundamentally broken in Illustrator. I see this behaviour with every second 'snap' action.
