  1. Simplify the Color Panels

    Why are there so many different panels in Illustrator for working with colors? The color-making panels in InDesign are so much simpler than Illustrator. It's super cumbersome and reminds me of trying to design something in MS Word. Simplify please. Make it like InDesign.

  2. incorrect color assignments

    Actions to change path color to black instead turn the path white on the first try. Repeating the exact same action flow a second time in a row turns the path black.

  3. Please bring back Kuler.

    Please bring back Kuler. I loved that feature and used it all the time to create themed palettes. Now I have to jump through hoops to find themed color palettes and I never have quite the same success as with Kuler. I am mystified about why it was taken away.

  6. Another way to colorize our illustrations.

    As we all know, Adobe Flash is no longer part of the Adobe Creative Cloud. But there is one very useful feature of Flash that should be part of Adobe Illustrator and that is the way that we where able to colorize vectors on Flash.
    With Illustrator we can put a color inside an object, but if i want to put some colours into a surface between some handdrawned vectors that crosses I can't do it.

    Even the way that we were able to select a part of a vector when they crossed each other.

    Those were very practical ways…

    また、UIがおかしくなります。

    The gradation of an unselected object is changed without permission.
    At the same time, a problem occurs in the UI.

  9. Non-Destructive Outlined Text - Gradients only show as black

    From all the posts I've read, you should be able to have individual gradients per letter once you add a non-destructive outline in the Appearance Panel. I've even seen the steps described many times. However, trying to add an individual gradient per letter/number does not work no matter what method I use to add the gradient fill. The letters only show black or show the gradient across all letters - no matter what gradient I choose. There's seems to be a bug, because I've tried several different ways of adding the colors, even selecting each letter individually, and it will…

  11. I just think the Pantone no. can be changed to any name, sometimes it is quite a trouble to a designer

    I just think the Pantone no. can be changed to any name, sometimes it is quite a trouble to a designer. Some Customers need accurate Pantone color instead of CMYK.

  12. a bug in gradient tool when applied to text

    hi,
    New is illustrator is great in many ways but i have found one bug* or intentional modification by adobe.

    it is nice to see live preview of gradient as it is being applied.. for the objects, gradient tool works fine as intended but when it is applied to text, it is buggy, i think.
    once mouse is clicked for applying gradient, after setting colors in gradient panel and new fill from appearance panel, text vanishes entirely, not allowing to see the gradient. once mouse is released, text with applied gradient appears. it is annoying.
    Check video to understand better.

  14. Simple Color Swap in entire document by selecting two global swatches

    It would be wonderful if possible to swap global swatches by selecting two swatches and swap them in the entire document. The same way it it already possible to merge them.

  15. Metadata on ASE

    For me and many designers, color is an asset with information associated with it that I need to follow this asset as it moves from different design programs. With metadata attached to file, I would be able to utilize the features in InDesign and other programs to auto populate this information into text fields. Additionally if this metadata ASE file was a library shared between many users and the any of the tagged information on a color was changed, this update would shoot out to any documents using this color. It would reduce:
    -errors by relying on one source of…

    When using the eyedropper to grab color from an image, and then place that color onto text (by holding down the ALT key). AI changes the font.

  18. Larger Stroke/Fill selector in Swatch panel

    It is extremely difficult to choose the between the Fill and Stroke selector in the Swatch panel., especially on Retina displays. Please give us the option to make it larger, as seen in my attachment.

  19. I have found effects and transparency to be problmatic

    I have found effects and transparency to be problematic in the past for print, and svg unless you convert the graphic to raster. Which then defeats the benefits of vector.

    What if you had a feature that could take the colors used in the effect or transparency and convert that to a basic gradient. "convert effect to gradient" or "convert transparency to gradient"
