Great app! this tool is indespensible for me now. I save much time and work, just "drag=collect". I also use it just to (doble)check all fonts and linked files are correct. Very usefull.

And an excellent support from the dev that solved my problem within hours. Very fast response. Thanks!!

It's surely a great application for designers. However, it doesn't handle any embedded images within illustrator.
Most of my customers always embeds images in their art work. Art Files always reports "missing images". So I have to spend more times to make sure I don't make a mistake. Maybe I'm lacked of info, any idea to fix this?

ArtFiles is great. With 40 designers, we create and produce many complex documents, and it rips through most of them with ease. Yes, there are a few it chokes on, but those are usually solved with a re-save from Illustrator turning off Compression.

Great tool, indespensible for our designers.

Incredibly unreliable.
Crashes most of the time. Particularly with more complex documents - which are of course the ones where you really need this application to help you gather all the items.
Sometimes adding documents again, it will work the second time round, sometimes it wont...
Would be very good if only it was stable

Art Files is a stand-alone application that takes the tedious task of collecting Illustrator documents, linked images, and fonts for graphics files, and turns it into a simple point-and-click operation. Rather than focus on the in-depth "preflight" nitty-gritty that other applications have done in the past, Art Files focuses on gathering just the information you need to get your files packaged up for your service provider.

Art Files also has the unique ability to collect several documents at once, saving precious time when only minutes stand between overnighting your artwork to the printer and having to hire a high-price door-to-door courier to meet your deadline. In addition to saving time, this feature also cuts down on disk space by collecting shared images and fonts between documents only once.

Art Files is perfect for archiving your important graphics documents. It's also perfectly tailored for anyone who works with graphics files and needs the portability of sending documents to others for editing or printing. Its simple, straight-forward user-interface is sure to make file collection nightmares a thing of the past.

Supports .ai files including CS6 and CC.
