  1. Dimension Tool Ungroup to edit

    To be able to ungroup the dimension, created with the dimension tool so it can be edited. The only way I have found how to edit it is expand appearance. And that duplicates it a number of times so you need to delete the duplicates first.

  2. Progress bar for the new Smooth tool

    I love the new smooth tool! When it comes to contour lines in a map, It perform so much better than the simplify tool. The only problem is that when I smooth lines in large documents, Illustrator freezes but the cpu is on fire so I'm not sure if it's working or if Illustrator needs to be force quitted.

    Therefore I propose a progress bar for that tool which appears after one has moved the Smoothing slider.

  4. The size of the box should attenuate AI generator detail

    I love the new AI feature, but creating a smaller box for the AI to generate in should attenuate the detail. A simple "bird" command creates an overly-detailed drawing for the scene, even with the detail slider set to "1"

  6. Puppet Warp tool should be able to affect meshes.

    I could have pushed this object around in seconds if the Puppet Warp tool worked on meshes. Instead I have to laboriously grab and move one point at a time to make the distortion meshes in this glass match up with the body of it.

    Please remedy this so that the next time I try to use the Puppet Warp tool to push stuff around that happens to contain a distortion mesh, I don't get this error.

    If there's any other type of object that will spawn a "The Puppet Warp tool does not support this type of object" error…

  8. Scale strokes and effects, hotkey while dragging.

    When using the scale tool, and clicking and dragging, there should be a hotkey that toggles 'scale strokes and effects'. It would be helpful to show this hotkey option as a tooltip that appears near the mouse cursor while dragging.

    All too often I will have to undo, then go into the transform panel or the preferences to check or uncheck the box, then go back and scale the object again.

  10. Increase size of anchor points / handles for curvature tool

  11. Change the cursor for Artboard Tool when a click is going to create a new object-sized artboard

    When using Artboard Tool, you can do several things with a simple click.
    1. Select an artboard under the cursor
    2. Deselect an artboard if there is no artboards under the cursor
    3. Create an artboard which size is the same as the object you click — but ONLY if the object is inside of the already selected artboard OR if the place you click is not inside of any artboard.

    This #3 case prevents deselecting artboards efficiently in cases when you don’t have 'naked canvas' inside of the viewport. And clicking is the only way to deselect artboards, since…

  14. The Image Trace function can no longer pull fine detail. It has been ruined for me with new update.

    I like to halftone images in photoshop and turn them into vectors in illustrator. With the changes made to Illustrator 2023, I can no longer do this, everything is overly blobby and it's just lost any ability to pull fine detail. Everything is oversimplified, and it is unusable for most of the style of work I do.

  15. If it Ain't broke, don't FIX

    New Image Trace UI design is terrible. The old was perfectly fine. Designers rely on consistent tool set up so we can work FAST. Stop messing with my work flow. If it Ain't broke, don't FIX

    The feature is added in the latest builds of Illustrator. The development of it is not complete yet, and the team has more plans on making it better for users to help them with their creative projects.

    If you have specific requests related to it, leave them in comments below or log separately.

  18. Edit multiple identical objects real-time

    Hello!
    Would be cool to have a feature where for example when editing 2 identical objects, you can convert one object into main object and other into "mirrored" one through layer system/window and then mirrored one will show same changes real-time whenever I'm editing the main one. Afterwards when turning off the feature, all the "mirrored" ones turn into seperate objects (as if rasterized).
    This would be a game changer when I'm editing text that is turned into object and I want same edits to be applied to all other identical letters.

  19. Create set of tools for items in Menu/Object/Path...

    I find I frequently got to Menu/Object/Path/Offset Path or Menu/Object/Path/Outline Stroke along with Envelope distort and Expand.

    It would be great to have these functions available as Clickable Tools that I could add to a Toolbar.
