  1. Move document tabs under cursor when closing documents

    When closing multiple document tabs using the X button on the side of the tab, the next document will move under the cursor. However, the tab size changes based on window size, filename length, etc. A better way would be to resize tab length after the cursor is moved away. The result would be that if you close Tab 1, Tab 2 would slide over and the X button would appear under the cursor. Many tabs could be easily closed without moving the cursor.

    An example of software that uses this UI is Safari on Mac. Chrome does it too,…

  4. Text to Vector Graphics (Beta) Feature: Delete multiple Variations

    Hello,

    Please add the option to delete multiple AI generated variations.

    At this moment, if you hit the limit of generated variations, you are only able to select and delete 1 at a time, (which is very time consuming) instead of selecting multiple variations for deletion.

  5. Shortcut to toggle visibility of Contextual Task Bar

    It would be useful for this tool to allow the user to hide/show this Contextual Task Bar using a single keyboard shortcut.

  7. 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.

  8. Package and Export for Screens / Assets: Same As Current Document Folder button

    In Package dialog I’d like to have a button to change the path to the location of the current document.

    BTW, same button is needed in Export for Screens / Assets dialog.

  9. Close panel by a middle-click on its header

    Middle-click today is a common gesture.
    In browsers and file managers with tabs it allows to close a current tab.
    There is a feature request to allows us to close tabs in Ai as well: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/38150188-add-middle-click-to-close-document

    But I would also like to be able to close panel with a middle-click. Not collapse — this is what a left-click does — but just close the panel.

  11. Add "Apply to all" to Embedded Profile Mismatch window

    When opening a document that has lots of linked images in a different color space, having to press OK on every single prompt takes quite a long time.

    My suggestion is to add an "Apply to all" checkbox to this window so I can instantly open the document. Attached is the windows I'm referencing.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. GRID in BACK/FRONT button

    It would be great to have the option of GRID ON BACK and GRID IN FRONT in the Properties panel, for example. near the SHOW GRID button as when working with GRIDS sometimes it's better to have them in front and others in back and for this I have always to get into the Preferences panel so as to activate/deactivate this option and it's really annoying...

  15. Add Focus Fill and Focus Stroke commands we can assign hotkeys to

    Illustrator focuses either a fill or a stroke to be set.
    We can control the focus with the hardcoded X key, that toggles fill and stroke, but it also requires to know which is active at the moment to know if we should press it.

    It’d be faster for professional user to actually force the stroke or the fill to be active, with dedicated absolute keys instead of relative ones.

    I’d use something Alt+X and Alt+Shift+X (these are free), or remapped them to something even more simpler.

    There is a related request:
    Absolute mode that always sets a fill a…

  16. Pin Contextual Task Bar position (like in Photoshop)

    Hi Adobe,

    While I love the idea of the contextual toolbar, I'm sure I am joined by many in my opinion that it really gets in the way a lot of time, covering up parts of the design you'd like to see, making it hard to resize or move an object precisely and so on.

    I'm extremely happy that I can just permanently pin the bar in the bottom of the screen (or wherever I want it) in Photoshop, but this option is entirely missing in Illustrator.

    The bar will remain where it is for the duration of my work…

  17. 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.

  19. I want to control how many pop-ups I see.

    I'm just trying to work, Adobe, but all the pop-ups are driving me mad! The tool tips are fine, but to be working away and be bombarded with this pop-up telling me to share my work and then another asking if I know how to do such-and-such.... I discover new features on my own whenever the app is updated, and if I want to find out anything else, I know how to do that. I don't need constant reminding. Please, please please, Adobe, please let this be a preference setting that can be turned off.

  20. Files should remember proof setup

    Every time I open my files I'm having to force Illustrator back to proof as Monitor RGB. It keeps defaulting to Working CMYK which is no use on an RGB file.

    It would be great if files retained proof settings.
