  2. 3rd party software developer that provides product cost analysis of sketches output from Adobe Illustrator

    I am looking for a 3rd party software that can analyze a sketch drawn in AI for product cost. Are there developers out there that have created something to analyze for cost?

  3. Create a shortcut to toggle between 2 different tools (e.g. brush & ink)

    Would be nice to have a keyboard shortcut to toggle between 2 tools (e.g. brush and ink) I'm working on an illustration and would be so much faster if I could have just one key to toggle between both tools. This is possible in Photoshop. I don't understand why isn't possible in Adobe Illustrator :(

  6. Anchor Reduction Brush

    Would it be possible to create a brush or an eraser to reduce anchor points with finer control than Path > Simplify? For example, a user wants to clean up a complex path where most of the path is great but part of the path needs anchor reduction. Include the same options of Path > Simplify and allow the brush to scale up and down. When the user brushes over the anchor points, the anchor points are removed. Maybe include an alt key option that toggles the brush functionality between Precise Simplify and Bulk Delete Anchor Point.

  7. 3D Materials Inflate: taper volume, change direction of taper

    I love the taper feature! It would be helpful to change the direction vertical/horizontal. Also the ability to also taper volume to create squeeze bottles that are round at the base but flat at the top.

  8. Make holding spacebar reposition a selection while resizing it, anytime, not only while it gets create

    When using Illustrator on a Mac, I am able to create a shape, resize the shape and then simultaneously press space bar to move the shape around while resizing it.

    However on Windows, this feature only works on the initial creation of the shape. Once it has been created spacebar no longer works to allow me to move the shape around whilst resizing.

  9. Pressing V opens "view" tab instead of switching to selection tool.

    On Windows, when you use V to switch from pen tool to selection tool, some times it opens up the "View" tab instead.

  10. Rotate objects separately

    If we make a selection of objects, and then rotate it with a corner marker of the bounding box (or with the Rotate tool), they get rotated all at once, as a single object.
    If we want to rotate all separate objects in the selection separately, the only way to do it is with the Transform Each dialog, with Preview option on, with arrow keys, changing the Angle value. Doable, but not fun.
    What if we get a mode, at least for the Rotate tool (since it’s a special tool for rotating), let’s say, with Ctrl/Cmd held, to rotate object…

  11. Allow to define circle pie angles in percent, with snapping options

    We can create pie angles in degrees, but there are cases when we rather more interested in percentage — pie charts.
    Sure, we know math, and can multiple 360° by 0.7 to get 70%, and Ai supports this in its fields...
    ...but what about the tool? How about an ability to create these directly on canvas — with the snapping to a defined value, like 5% or maybe even 3.5%?

  12. Transform Each > new features

    We need more smart tools in transform each
    -Lock proportional scale
    -Offset origem transform
    (unnecessary extra vertex to do array transform circular for Example)
    -Add Seed box on random opitions

  13. Illustrator Internal Font Maker

    I wanted to request Adobe Illustrator to be able to create and export a font file on its own. I know illustrator can export file types for font creation. I would love to not have to jump to other software to finish making a font as well as be able to make the font automatically be added to my library for use in other Adobe Cloud apps or share/upload to Stock.
    The reason I make this request is because I want to streamline the typography/font creation without struggling to export to other software. When I make fonts it's for use…

  14. Eyedropper doesn't include the arrow heads on a line

    If I have a line selected and I use the eyedropper on a different line with a stroke and arrow heads, it only copies the stroke not the arrow heads.

    Please make it include the arrow heads.

    Also, the most useful arrow head is number 27, it should be number 1 not number 27.

    In fact, if there was a checkbox you could click in the stroke properties window that automatically changed a line to a measurement label so it put an arrowhead 27 on each end, changed the stroke to like 4pt yellow, and a text box half way…

  15. Make Global Edit work with guides

    Guides in Illustrator are treated like objects. It does not suite everyone, and there is a request to make them a completely separate entity, like ones in InDesign, without them being able to get selected with 'normal' object, get grouped, etc.

    Still, when a selection of a guide is made, it is expected for it to behave like a selection would do. We can transform them (rotate scale, flip, move), hide/lock individually... and it feels normal for a selected guide to be affected by the Global Edit feature.

    However, it does not :(

  16. Anchor point sliding (reposition point tool)

    It would be nice to have an Anchor Point Slide function that transfers the anchor's position along the path without disturbing it, the same way nodes work in a 3D software. I find it very frustrating when I'm trying to reposition an anchor point without altering the path, but there's no way to do that.

  17. Add a modifier key to pen tool, to constrain anchor handle dragging to current handle orientation.i

    What I ask for is the equivalent of "constrain path dragging on segment reshape" kind of behaviour, but accessible on the fly on the anchor point edit level, not segment level. As it is now, if I have an anchor with a long handle on one side and short handle on the other side, it is impossible to adjust short handle directly without seriously messing with the direction of the long handle, altering the curvature wildly.

  18. Scale with constrained proportions

    Give me a key combo with the scale tool to constrain proportions.

    The diagonal motion doesn't cut it. I'm doing very detailed work and there is no indicator if the proportions are actually locked or not. Very frustrating.

  20. Hitting Escape while creating a shape, an artboard, while using Rotate, Scale, etc., doesn't cancel the process

    When we marquee a selection and hit Escape — it gets canceled.
    When we hit Escape while dragging out a guide — it gets canceled.
    Dragging out a brush on the canvas — works.
    Dragging out a swatch to drop it on a gradient or the canvas — works.
    Dragging the appearance form the Appearance panel — works.
    ...and many other cases

    Escape does NOT work for these cases:
    1. Creating a shape, an artboard, an area text
    2. Rotating, scaling, shearing, free transforming...
    3. Setting up the width with the Width tool
    4. Setting up the gradient with the…
