comment Photoshop Easy Color Change For Client
If it's a 1 color design, then the ink on the press determines the final color. Just specify a different ink. If by "print" you mean they print it on their office printers, then no.

comment How can I Change the color of a bunch of objects in Illustrator
No, there's no way to alter multiple symbols at once via the Symbol panel. I've reopened this, but I don't believe what you want is possible.

comment How can I Change the color of a bunch of objects in Illustrator
I thought you may have been using "Symbol" to be object rather than actual Symbols. FOr actual Symbols, this is a better duplicate link: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/8199/… -- Or simply double-click the symbol in the symbol panel and change its color.

comment can't work out the Minus Front
The picture on the left is before the Minus Front button is clicked... the picture on the right is after it's been clicked. Images in the middle are overlapping multiple shapes, not one object. Looks correct to me.

Simplest solution is to return to the InDesign file for edits.

comment How do i place a 16bit bit image into Adobe Illustrator without it converting it to 8bit?
But... "i'm working on is for web" the "web" doesn't support 16bit either... There's little incentive to work in 16bit once you need Illustrator.

Why do you need 16-bit in Illustrator?

comment How can I make an arrow thicker and save it for mobile usage in illustrator?
Illustrator provides saving as PNG. Not sure where you got the idea it didn't.

comment How to extract vector filename from .ai files
I don't really understand what's being asked here. A file titled 546546844132.eps has that as it's name. Are you asking if there's internal meta data which tracks every name the file may have ever had?

comment Creating outline using extendscript distorts text
"I can copy the text to a new file and then the script outlines it correctly." would lead to an issue with the file specifically.

comment Why does Photoshop outputs such huge PDFs?
There's really no way for anyone to answer this without seeing the actual PDF. Raster images within PDFs are generally not very compressed. A 1mb jpg used in a "high quality" pdf could easily multiply in size by 10 times.

comment something goes wrong with default brush setting in illustrator CS6
The blob brush will only accept calligraphic brush profiles. All other brush types don't work with the blob brush.

comment Spacing between irregular objects
No. Photoshop has even fewer spacing and distributing options than Illustrator.
