  1. Lock tools or pallets to the edge when using multiple monitors?

    I'd like to be able to pin toolbars or windows to the inside edge when using multiple monitors. I like keeping my main display clear of obstruction and have my tool pallets against the "spine" between the two monitors on the secondary display. Illustrator only allows toolbar pinning to happen on the extreme left or right of all monitors... Please allow the ability to pin to the spine/seam of the monitors.

  2. Window Menu shows active panels as checked names but does not indicate panels that are tabbed in a group. Maybe add gray checks?

    Window Menu shows active panel as checked names but does not indicate those that are tabbed in a group. Maybe if we put a grayed out check next to tabbed panels? So that the unchecked are obviously panels not activated at all.

  3. AI: trace in style of...

    the new text to vector tool is amazing, especially the match to artboard/ stylepicker functionality.

    Now I would like to import a photo to the artboard of an existing Illustration and trace it in the same style/simplification of this already existing vector file.

  4. Changing 'Screen Mode' forgets where the window was located

    In Photoshop you can use the F key to cycle through screen modes: Standard, Full Screen + Menu Bar, and Full Screen. This works as intended.

    In Illustrator however, when you cycle through screen modes it will forget where your window was previously positioned. Instead, it defaults to taking up the entire screen. This is a bug.

  6. X & Y Sliders for Quicker Movement and Precision

    Please make X and Y position for an object have a slider like After effects. Instead of clicking the arrow keys or putting in a value, I should be able to select and object, then hover over they X or Y value and use the slider to only affect the object in one direction. This would greatly speed up layout design and allow for more precision. After effects does this perfectly already, and I think it would be a great addition to Illustrator. I would also say this feature could be added to W and H.

  7. Move 'Show The Home Screen...' and 'Use Legacy File New...' options to Preferences > User Interface section

  8. Reduce the shortening / truncating of color swatch names when in list view

    Remove the color type from the right column of the color swatch menu which would result in more space for the color name and ultimately less truncation of color names.
    The color type; spot, process or global is already indicated by a dot or triangle on the thumbnail on the left. It doesnt need to be indicated again on the right. If this was eliminated, there would be more space for the color names.
    The color mode isnt important. Book, cmyk or RGB - it doesnt matter to users when searching this list. RGB or CMYK is already apparent as…

  10. Rename artboards and layers easily

    Please develop a method to easily rename artboards and layers. An option to switch between layers by pressing tab would be great. An option to find and replace text in artboard names would be perfect.
    At the moment renaming artboards is a time consuming process because you have to doubleclick every artboard separately and enter text.

  11. Illustrator Panel keeps resizing its width when changing to another tabbed panel.

    Illustrator Panel keeps resizing its width when changing to another tabbed panel, unlike in Photoshop. Can't you make this stop? It's been around for years. Very irritating. I usually don't put any panels underneath my Layer Panel so there is nothing there to keep it from resizing. Why do we have to put up with this? Photoshop interface is more relaxing. Why can't it be the same for Illustrator?

  12. Edit Original Link Image in contextual menu

    It would be a lot less clicks if one could right-click an image file and have "edit image" be in the contextual menu. Currently, click the object, go to links palette, click on the little pencil icon... photoshop launches... Kind of labor intensive...

  13. Panel Calculator for Illustrator

    Panel Calculator for Illustrator

    Hello

    My calculator panel idea in illustrator is shown in the attached picture

    Approximately, as I see it and based on the tasks that I solve in illustrator.
    It would also be nice if the Calculator and Transform panels work together. The principle is shown. Perhaps even understandable. An active window in one is an active window in the other...

    In general, a calculator is a useful thing and it would fit well into the adobe system.
    It would also be nice if the Calculator panel could interact with other panels with which this is possible.…

  14. Ajuster l'origine sur le plan de travail

    A rajouter dans le menu Objet /Plan de travail :
    Ajuster l'origine sur le plan de travail sélectionné

    En choisissant cette commande le repère 0,0 des règles serait automatiquement ajusté en haut à gauche du plan de travail actif.

    A envisager : passer par une fenêtre de dialogue qui affiche les 9 petits carrés que l'on trouve dans transformation et qui permettrait de choisir sur quel angle ou quel centre on veut caler les règles.

    Cette fonctionnalité permettra de définir la position d'éléments ou de repères de façon rapide et précise par la saisie de valeurs numériques.

  15. Please stop removing features from Beta that are available in regular.

    The arc tool needs better features that are in the non-beta version but for some stupid reason are removed from beta in order to make things harder and less functionable. For example, I can't see the properties of an arc I've drawn, or convert a path to an arc. BUT, if I were NOT USING BETA, then I'd be able to.

    I'm learning this software, and keep asking Google Bard for instructions, and have great information, only to find out that features were removed or slimmed down in Beta, giving you less function. WHY?! Isn't the point of Beta to…

  17. Opacity Mask Thumb displayed in color, not in grayscale

    Please checkout the current Opcity Mask viewing. When you hold down the Option/Alt key to review the mask you see the objects or image in color. It should be like it used to be before in Gray scale... (black Conceals, White Reveals)
    Why did you change it? In the imge I enclose you can see the dog in color..should be BW once it is in the mask area.
