  2. Remove round corner minimum angle limit

    Please allow for round corner angle threshold control via Preferences. The very common issue I have all the time is being unable to round corners with angles smaller than some hardcoded threshold.

    Not a big issue rally on simple trivial geometry where you can workaround by manually constructing the round corner. But in my field I have to constantly deal with large complex paths needing all corners rounded regardless of angle.

    I always have to resort to exporting geometry to SVG, rounding corners in Corel or Affinity which don't have the said minimal angle limit, import back to AI and…

  3. Fix Variables panel scrolling to bottom when making changes

    When i'm working with the variables panel, the variables panel is scrolling to the bottom of the list, every time i select a layer in the layer panel or when i link the variable to the layer. Because of this, i have to scroll back to where i was before every time i make a change. I have between 100 and 200 variables in my project, so this make the work time twice as long as it should be.

    Can you please make it so that it remember the position and doesn't scroll to the bottom every time.

  4. Make varibles column resizeable in variables panel

    In the Variables panel you have two columns, "Variables" and "Objects". The column width is locked so you can't resize the width to match the length of the variables. This make it difficult to use when you have longer variables and can't see the full name of the variable. I have a lot of variables with the same name, but with an incrementing number at the end of the name. It would make it way easier to work, if i could see what variable i'm working on.

  5. Show only existing separations

    In the palette separation preview, display only colors that are actually present in the image. If the image does not contain process colors (CMYK) or one of them, it will be excluded from the list.

  6. Ruler Options

    I'd like to see the font size of the rulers have the option of a sliding scale. The numbers are super tiny. While zooming in is great to be able to be more precise, it doesn't do any good when you still can't actually read the ruler because the font is too small to see. Also, when zooming in, it would be nice if 1/8" and 1/16" marks would become apparent on the ruler the further in you zoomed

  7. Launch Illustrator with the same opened documents tabs from closing

    I would add this option that would basically skip the home screen and launch straight into the last open documents from the last time I closed the app.
    This is very convenient instead of clicking through each document from the home screen.

    I guess this could also just become the main behaviour for closing Ai so if you instead want to get rid of all the open tabs you could right click on one and click "close all tabs"

  8. Option for bigger User Interface

    Yesterday I downloaded Illustrator (26.0.2) for the first time. But the small User Interface stops me from using the product. The text is so tiny, especially in Properties and Layers panels. For me the possibility of a larger text is important. If there is no option for enlarging, I stop using the product. But I really want to use Illustrator and to create beautiful things.

    I tried to fix the issue with Edit > Preferences > User Interface < Adjust the UI Scaling slider. But the changes are insignificant on the highest possible value. I think the UI Scaling slider…

  10. Warn of locked and hidden items when saving or selecting all and trying to move the selection.

  11. Return setting values by scrolling mouse wheel in "New Document" dialog

    It was very useful feature in older versions of illustrator and did my work faster. I wish it will return back

  12. Installing old versions of Illustrator!

    My Illustrator 2020 / 24.6 was crashing on startup, so i decided to delete and reinstall it.
    Now i can't find on Creative Cloud the same version (2020/ 24.6) to download.
    I've been informed by customer service that Adobe no longer provides previous versions of the apps. I never received any information that the company would no longer provide the older versions and now I can't reinstall the version I had on my computer. My OS doesn't support updates anymore so I can't install the latest versions of Illustrator. Customer service only provides base version 24.0 for offline installation and…

  13. Customize Illustrator

    At this moment it's a painful story to change the default graphic style or font. Especially if you have to work with certain design guidelines it would be easier to have a workspace that features the right colors, fonts, etc on default. Please try to figure out how to make this easier for us.

  14. Have an option to add your OWN sizes to the New Document Window

    Add an option to the "Saved" tab on the "New Document Window" to add your own Template/Documents. i.e I want to add a blank template for A5 size and always have it handy when I create a New Document.

  15. Customizable splash screen

    Adobe marketing team decides what to display as splash screens. Sometimes the choice is great, and sometimes is not, much more often, to some of us.

    And since the Illustrator splash screen is what we see often, and it obviously influence our thought and mood, we’d like to have options to customize it.

    We can access the image ourselves, all of them are stored along with other version for different resolution screens at
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 2022\Support Files\Contents\Windows\aiccsplash.png (on Windows)
    and packed in the application in Contents\Resources\ (on Macs),
    but this feels like a hack.

    What if we…

  16. Display Workspace Name in Application Header

    The workspace switcher in the application header used to show you the name of the workspace you were currently in, it seems like it has now been replaced with only an icon. Would be great if we could bring back the workspace name, as I like to know what workspace I am working in, also there is plenty of room and a larger button target couldn't hurt. I could see it as simple as being able to pull the vertcle rule over to the left if users wanted the "expanded" workspace button vs just the icon.

  17. Loop blend modes when custom assigned hotkeys are used

    Photoshop has default hotkeys for looping through blend modes, Shift+Plus and Shift+Minus. Illustrator can have these assigned too (in Keyboard Shortcuts, in Tools section), but they behave differently — when the end of the list is reached you can't jump to the beginning.

    That is pressing Shift+Plus does not take you to Normal from Luminosity. Strangely enough, Shift+Minus does choose Luminosity when you are on Normal!

    To maintain consistence between apps, this should be changed.

  18. Fix annoying save bug after adjusting UI preferences

    I just encountered an annoying save bug that caused me to lose 90 minutes of work in Illustrator. Here is the sequence of events:

    •  I opened an existing document in AI, with the intention of changing it and saving as something else.

    • I opened preferences and made a minor UI adjustment (tweaked the size of my tool bar).

    • Dialog #1 stated that changes will not occur until you restart AI. Would you like to restart? Yes/No.

    • I selected YES (without thinking), under the assumption that I would be given the option to 'save as.'

    • Dialog #2…

  19. Nix the Stupid Blue Share Button

    Get rid of the stupid giant blue "Share" button in the toolbar. It's very distracting because it looks like I constantly have a notification. And I will never use it. We've been all through this with Acrobat already!

  20. UI Scaling for Macs without 1920 x 1080 resolution (on a MacBook Pro 13" M1)

    Hello, I would like to have UI scaling for smaller Macs that do not have or meet the resolution listed (ie 1920 x 1080).

    I am on a 13" Mac and it is difficult to see my toolbars at its current size and don't have a solution to improve it. This feature would aide in stronger accessibility to those who have vision impairment or challenges. Thank you for considering this change.
