  2. Display Tablet : Wacom CINTIQ 22HD VS XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro REVIEW

    Hello everyone, I'm an Illustrator user, I usually use the Adobe Illustrator, Evernote, Dropbox software and tasks. Mostly Illustrator on my display drawing tablet.

    CINTIQ 22HD

    I know there are a lot of people who are looking for Cintiq alternatives as Wacom's tablets are expensive. I had been wanting a Cintiq for years but never really thought they were worth all that money. However, after I had a chance of using Cintiq 22HD for a few days, I came to realize that drawing on a display tablet is far quicker and more enjoyable than doing it on non-display tablets.
    SO,…

  3. Better star shape tools

    A way to apply roundness to star shapes and randomness to the with of spikes on star shapes and the ability to edit length of spikes as a ratio rather than two diamiters, and the ability to edit these settings with the star tool after creating the star shape.

    or in other words, simmilar, if not the same, as how it works in the free program inkscape

  4. Blend objects aligned to path and keep bounding boxes at ends straight so they don't distort

    Blend objects aligned to path and keep bounding boxes at ends straight so they don't distort. Have to make many long paths of wire shapes and to keep them aligned on the path the first and last keep distorting so I can't edit or reuse for a slightly different curve.

  5. improve and snap and alignments

    you really should improve and snap and alignments. Really disappointing for a geometric vector design program. Consider that other software like Corel Draw, Affinity Design, the good old freehand this thing works much better, even free software inkscape works better.

    Beyond "align to point" you should also make align, and intercept alone the curvature of the vectors, as "hook to object" of freehand. If external plug-ins like those of the Institute or other external scripts are able to implement these functions, to the great I would say, I wonder why mom never ADOBE can not? Do not you want to…

  6. indesign dropper

    the illustrator and indesign dropper work differently, one the opposite of the other.
    I think that indesign is more functional, especially for copying text styles and applying them to multiple words ... If possible, adjust the dropper function that works like in indesign.

  8. Addition to changing the corners of all vectorpoints

    addition for changing the corners of all vectorpoints in the group.I can change a vectorpoint seperately with the white angle tool but not all at the same time.
    (to change the direction of a vectorpoint. To set the points in perspective)

    Right know I could only resize them and rotate

  9. Option to have Measurements for Line - Full or Scaled.

    If I were to draw a line from pint A to B the size of that line is displayed under the line. This should be optional and be able to be turned off. Also have the abl\ility to state scaled size so it might have arrows point to star and end of line and the size in the middle <--------- 10" ----------> or it might say 10" @ 1/10 actual size 100"..

  10. Make the paintbrush more user friendly.

    LIterally the most illogical system. If you change one part of a brush your customizing it reverts to the older one. Worked with this for a couple years and forgot how dissapointing it was. MAKE THE PAINTBRUSH TOOL MORE USER FRIENDLY.

  11. Better drivers for monoprice drawing tablet

    Drawing with monoprice drawing tablets causes random drawing effects. Trying to draw a straight line will cause loops, be off screen, etc. Only with brush tool currently. Drawing will occur without pressure just hovering above the tablet.

  12. Stroked Object Transform Bug Constrain Error Adobe Illustrator CC 2017-2018

    When using the transform panel to resize an object or multiple objects, it goes without saying if you select constrain, there should be confidence it will scale respectively. A circle remains a circle, a square a square, a 16:9 Graphic stays 16:9 etc. etc.

    Unfortunately I have noticed a very concerning bug where if one of the objects has a stroke, it will not transform constrained. I noticed because the object I grabbed had a perfect circle, that seems maybe 5% horizontally compressed afterward.

    I have done this screencast to show the bug does not occur on non-stroked objects- only…

  14. Expanding scatter brush without boxes

    When I create a scatter brush of random circles and then expand the appearance, it creates outlines of all the circles, but also adds in a box around each circle. When I 'Unite' the shapes the boxes are included and there are too many to have to go in and delete the boxes manually.

  15. Editing the handles from a point in a vector line/shape.

    When editing the handles from a point in a vector line/shape, it usually takes high accuracy to select the handle. It can be very frustrating to try and grab a handle, and you end up grabbing the shape underneath it instead - and moving the shape instead of adjusting the handle. I guess the tolerance on how close the cursor needs to be to the handle, has something to do with this. Maybe putting in a different logic that will understand that if a point on a line is selected and it displays the handles - then it is highly…

  16. Add Anchor Tool: Make it easier to add multiple anchors

    When doing a complex drawing, I often start with a simple shape and then use the "Add Anchor Point" tool to add points to a line, near where I plan to place them (by clicking and dragging). For instance I'm drawing a partially constructed "Death Star" for a T-shirt I'm designing. I started with a circle, and on one side of the circle, I'm creating the (cartoonish) effect of a "ragged edge". This requires a sh*t load of anchor points, which have to be created by clicking on the perimeter of the founding circle, then moving slightly along the line,…

  17. brush tool

    When drawing a complex shape with the brush tool it just stops working after a certain amount of time. Im not sure if it is because it has used too many points to make the shape or what, but its very frustrating. FIX YOUR PROGRAM PLEASE.

  18. Merge and tile collection of images

    Collections of images should be able to be merged into one image and tiled. That would make it a lot easier to make patterns.

  19. dashed line gap size

    please allow the gap size to be completely variable. right now max gap is 13.88". This feature would be useful for putting grommet marks on banners, normally 24" spacing but can be many different spacings ( but not on the same banner). Thanks Bob

  20. stop Live corners assumptions

    When drawing with the curvature, I haven't tested with regular pen, if you draw a mix of corners and somewhat curved surfaces, then you go back to add some nice radiused corners, you will likely be annoyed by illustrator Thinking that you intended to draw a giant chamfer.

    No, I didn't draw a large chamfer. Do not assume I drew a large chamfer. Assuming a radius when illustrator sees a tangent arc connecting two lines is Great. But with chamfer there's nothing to be tangent to. So just because I drew two sharp corners in a row, before two curved…

    Need More Info  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    This should not be happening. Seems like a bug. The corner should not become a chamfer unless you do an Option-click on the live corner widget. Could you please share more details on when this happens?

    Thanks,
    Yogesh
