  1. Ability to create Folder-like Groups within Appearance panel and apply Opacity and effects at this Group level.

    Using the Photoshop model of layer folders, provide the ability to group fills and strokes within the Appearance panel. These groups could then have opacity, effects, etc. applied at the Group level.

    E.g. a complex stroke pattern could be built within a group using multiple styles, and then that pattern could be "embossed" onto another underlaying style using Overlay or Hard Light. The overall effect could then be contained within a single path and could be saved as a single Graphic Style.

  2. Separate "Random" checkboxes for every parameter of the transform each command and effect.

    Seperate "Random" checkboxes for every parameter of the "Transform Each" command and effect.

    This would allow the user, in one step, to randomize only the selected parameter, (say the vertical scale) but still transform the other parameters (maybe rotation and number of copies) uniformly.

  3. warp linked

    Please add the ability to warp linked files without having to embed them first. Basically, turn them into the equivalent of smart objects in photoshop.

  6. Transparency lost in Image Trace

    Transparency of .png images is lost if using the image trace option. So my already transparent picture now has a white background if I use image trace, unless I use sketched art which does not provide the look I want. All the options should be transparent, especially if the original file is already.

  7. sombras paralelas

    Hola! Les escribo ya que no puedo usar la herramienta estilizar de efectos, ya que no me permite usar sombras paralelas. He intentado usar la ayuda de ilustrator y aún así no se aplica a la imagen luego de terminar.

  8. you should consider adding the "perspective" feature from the classic 3D options to the new realisrtic 3D! adds more depth especially if us

    you should consider adding the "perspective" feature from the classic 3D options to the new realisrtic 3D!

    adds more depth especially if used in typography.

    The perspective in classic 3D unfortunately is not working well if the possition is FRONT because the render of the sides is incomplete!

    Imagine if this feature was part of the new 3D!!!

    PLEASE ADD THE PERSPECTIVE INTO THE NEW 3D

    thanks guys

  9. I'd like the ability to import .spsm files to Materials.

    When taken from Illustrator to a community-created assets page, there are tons of .spsm files and only a few .sbsar files. The .spsm files are the ones that I like, but I can't use them in Illustrator.

  10. Cut-off of Effects like Drop Shadow etc

    Working with Flexo plates, we need to cut-off vignettes at 3%, it would be great to have an 'Advanced' section on effects like Drop Shadow to cut off at a stated percentage. Currently have to work around by Expanding the effect, exporting an the image for Photoshop, using the Curves to cut-off of 3%, then relinking the image in Illustrator which also means having multiple files...

  11. Stop with the supersampling export artboard option!!!!!!

    Seriously its becoming an irritating issue. Everytime when i want to export many artboard one short, i have to make sure i select supersampling....... otherwise it'll come out pixelated. I'm working in a fast pace environment and i can't keep double check on that option. why not just automatic just make sure the res at 72dpi come out the best appearance? Please fix this. Because if someone wants it to be lower appearance than hey, pls do click this more option. Really irritate me. Here is an image. Left, supersampling, right is not.

  12. Fisheye lens effect

    Is it possible to apply Fisheye lens effect in Adobe Illustrator as in Freehand MX? Adobe Illustrator has some features, but not as effective as Freehand.

  13. Automatisches Textfeld, das sich an den Text anpasst

    Bei Infografiken werden kurze Texte oft mit farbigen Flächen hinterlegt. Cool wäre eine Funktion in Illustrator, welche einen Textblock oder eine Textzeile automatisch mit so einer Fläche hinterlegt. Optional könnte man Farbe, Eckenradius, Transparenz, Grösse (über den Text hinaus) usw. bestimmen.

  14. Add Behind blurr effect

    Can we have blurr behind like in adobe Xd .

    This would be great for designing if you need to blurr multiple objects in full or partially rather than adjusting for each layer or shape .Its a long process just to partially blurr an object because you have to play around with clip mask , but if there was a blurr behind feature it would be easier.

  15. Effects ( fx ) drag and drop

    Just like in Abode Indesign, when you apply an effect to type or object all you have to do is drag & drop the "fx" icon in the appearance bar to the type or object you wish to apply that effect to.

    Adding this same feature will increase productivity when adding multiple effects and create a more cohesive work from program to program.

  16. Paint, Draw, Spatter on Vector like Raster for Visual turn DigitL Artisans

    It takes conversations like this to know what customers want to dive into if they see adobe, & for years I tried but run away from adobe it was extreme even illustrator it didn’t feels like the art drawing, medium, etc. I grew up learning. No one grew up as a child to use adobe. But they can if it feels like it on screen. You are #1 and growing too, my voice hopefully adds more light that. Combine easier icons that newbies know, more raster in style (rebelle,artrage), but adobe all in one vector that combines the two, for…

  18. A 3D outline Preview option;

    no fill just an outline. It would be of value to minimize operating memory and provide a preview of design.

  20. Artboard Textures

    Textured artboard choice, ie canvas, wood, concrete, liquid etc.
    When new drawings happen all the work reacts according to the artboard type, ie lineworks degrade if on a canvas texture. I know this can be simulated afterwards but the linework or colour fills don’t degrade accurately, it’s more a superimposition.
    I also realise this would take an awful lot of computing power!
