One of the forum members posted a burning question about Illustrator.

Why doesn’t Illustrator have a Collect for Output function, that would collect all the images, fonts and other files needed for a complete package to transfer a job? Why do I need to remember every single file name and font I used in a document? If Quark and Freehand can do it, how come Illustrator can’t? How come no third party developer focused on this opportunity yet? In the OS9 days, there was a little application, that independently from Illustrator analyzed the Illustrator file and tried to search for all the files linked to it, but it never worked correctly for me. But, Today there is nothing. One has to do it manually.

Please, if you know of some app that I missed or if you’re a developer with some free time willing to make such a plug-in, let me know!
