  1. Change the hierarchy of the preset tabs when setting up a document

    Would it not be a good idea to change the hierarchy of the presets when setting a new document? Currently, when you input Width and then tab to the next preset, it takes you to measurement units, then to Height. Surely it would be better to either have the measurements units choice before both the canvas dimensions, or after? That way you can input Width then tab straight to Height without looking at what you're doing. It causes problems if you forget that the current sequence is Width>Units>Height when you're inputting your details and only find out after you've input…

  2. copy and paste at pre selected place in group shape hierarchy

    When did this change… I am 100% sure in the past when trying to paste a shape within the layered structure of a grouped set of objects, ….prior to pasting you could (A) Direct select, or maybe even double-click isolate a place in that layered grouping of shapes to specify where you want your newly pasted shape to go. Before I could, copy - hit (A) direct select an object, and then when I hit CTRL-F or V… the pasted object/shape would sit on top of previously selected shape in that layered hierarchy. Now, there’s no recognition.. or option to…

  3. Make Hide Edges shortcut work when in Dialog

    When changing a Swatch' color, while in the dialog, it is not possible to hide the selection edges at that moment, while it is very useful in combination with Preview. The edges block the ability to judge the color adjustment of Global Swatches,

  4. Movie Clip symbol?

    When a Symbol is created, it defaults to 'Movie Clip'.
    Is that a legacy from the Flash era?

  6. Update Artboard templates!

    If you present us such a panel at the entrance, we will not need to memorize the template size in our social media works.

  7. Harmonization between Adobe apps

    Switching from one app to another (Fresco, Illustrator or Photoshop), it is annoying not to find the equivalent tools at the same place (ex: pipette).

    Would it be possible to have a better coherence between the apps?

    I’ll post this question in the other suggestions forums too.
    Thanks for your consideration.

  9. Can you please add the Outline Stroke to the Right-Click menu?

    I love using illustrator and i use it a lot and while I'm working in it I've noticed I use the Object/Path/Outline Stroke command quite frequently, and it's rather time consuming to repeat these steps every time I need to outline a stroke. That being said I'd like to appeal to you that you'd consider adding the Outline Stroke option to the Right-Click mouse dropdown menu when a Stroke is selected. It would help a lot. Thanks!

  10. Open Current File Location

    It would be amazing if you add Open Current File Location under the "File" dropdown.

    It is a really minor thing, but it would significantly impact productivity.

  11. Support for 3Dconnexion spacemouse

    3Dconnexion makes devices that have 6 axis of movement (a bit like a joystick). In CAD software these are as standard as a mouse. It is used to manipulate the object in 3D on the screen as if you were holding the object or as if you were holding a flying camera hovering around the object (your choice).
    In 2D environments these devices can be used for moving the canvas top-down, left-right and for zooming. Additionally macro buttons are available on many of the devices.
    Please make a driver / implementation for this. It seems that the 2D world is…

  12. Enable tool palettes to ‘Show Options’ by default as a Preferences setting (all CC apps)

    I am posting this under Illustrator but it applies to many (most?) Creative Cloud apps.

    Many (most?) tool palettes only show a subset of their options by default. To see all options one has to choose the palette's popup menu and click ‘Show Options’.

    When working on a smallish screen (as I generally do on my laptop) it makes sense to frequently put palettes away, so this is incredibly annoying because the choice doesn't persist.

    When a palette has been closed or minimised, one has to do this every time one wants to access an option input that Adobe has…

  13. REMOVE THE FRUSTRATING LIGHT BULB "LEARN" FEATURE BEFORE I CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION!

    I would curse here normally but I am trying to refrain, I have taken 10 minutes from my day today to see if this irritating feature that I have never used and even as a newcomer would never use either can be disabled as it infuriates me.

    User experience research was not undertaken with this feature clearly as many of the community have voiced their frustrations with this exact feature.

    REMOVE IT PLEASE, else I will look at cancelling the subscription just due to this, that's how irritating this pointless feature is, and this is not the first time Adobe…

  14. プロパティパネルのアピアランス部分に濃度設定を追加してほしい

    現状のアピアランスパネルでは塗りや線の色を設定する際に塗りのアイコン部分をクリックするとスウォッチが開き素早くカラーを変更可能です。しかし、そのスウォッチに対して薄い色が欲しい場合、開いたパネルで1回ボタンをクリックすることによりカラーパレット表示に切り替えた上での調整が必須です。
    この手順はワンクッション増加するためにプロパティパネル上の不透明度の設定を調整することで代替してしまうというワークフローが増加しています。これはデータ上に安易に透明効果を適用した部分を増加させる事に繋がり、適切な設定を施されないままトラブル誘発の原因となってしまっています。
    なにより、不透明度を下げるという事はその下の情報を表示する事に繋がりますから色を薄く設定するという意図からはかけ離れた行為であると言えるでしょう。
    また、以下のチュートリアルにおいても色を薄くする目的でに安易に不透明度の利用を勧めています。

    https://helpx.adobe.com/jp/illustrator/how-to/basics-essentials-workspace-illustrator.html

    この説明はまずいです。塗りの濃度調整及び不透明度の設定はそれぞれ明確な使い所が存在し、適切に使い分けるべき機能です。

    さて、ここで提案なのですが、InDesignの様にプロパティパネルのアピアランス部分の「塗り」と「線」の項目に濃度の設定項目を追加していただきたいと思います。
    InDesignとはスウォッチの性質が異なるのですが、設定したスウォッチに対して濃度の項目で設定した数値を単純に割合として計算した数値のカラーを適用出来れば問題ないと考えます。
    添付の機能追加提案分の画像の赤で囲んだ部分のイメージのようにしてはいかがでしょうか。
    こうする事でユーザーは簡単に塗りや線の濃度を調整可能となります。

    ぜひご検討頂けたらと思います。

  15. undo/redo button

    I have a 2 in 1 PC tablet and the touch version of the interface won't let me chose brushes. So I want to use the regular version of the interface for illustration to be able to pick my brushes, but when I have my pc folded as a tablet to draw on the screen, I'm not able to press ctrl+z to undo any mistakes.

    It'd be great to have these buttons UNDO and REDO on all the interface versions the same way we have it in the tablet mode.

  16. ペンツール使用時のみ、タブキーでの選択ツール/ダイレクト選択ツールの切り替えができなくなった

    ペンツール使用時に、コマンドキーをヘ押下した際に、ダイレクト選択ツールに変わるが、他のツールでは問題ないのに、ペンツール時のみ、タブキーでの選択ツール/ダイレクト選択ツールの切り替えができなくなった
    CS6の頃は使えていたのは間違い無いのだけども、CCのどこかで使えなくなった
    とても使いにくくて悲しいので直して欲しい

  17. Delete all saved selections

    There is no way to quickly delete all the saved selections (displayed in the bottom of the Select menu, once you saved them via 'Select > Save Selection...').
    You have to do it one by one, which is a torture.

    Also you can’t just right-click a name of it right there in the menu and say 'Delete' — because you have no context menu for top menu items. You do not like context menus in general.

  18. Delete from recent files

    As you know, Illustrator keeps exported images in the File > Open Recent Files list.
    So if I export 20 TIFs from a single document — they will all will be listed there.

    This is dumb, and there are multiple requests to stop this:
    https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests?query=recent%20files

    There are also requests to be able to clear that list (guess why there is a need for this).

    But we should also be able to remove positions from the list one by one.
    Use cases:
    1. I renamed a file and now I can’t open it via this menu
    2. I moved the file…

  19. Shortcut für "Erneut Verknüpfen"

    Moin, wär nice wenn es für besagte Funktion nen Shortcut geben würde, welcher auch in der Tastaturbelegung aufgeführt ist.

    Ich benutz die Funktion etwa 100 mal am Tag und es is n bisschen ätzend jedes mal den Button anzuklicken.

    Danke schonma im voraus und LG

  20. Remove restrictions to useable keyboard shortcuts (e.g. Ctrl + Key for non-tools)

    It would be great if the restrictions put in place for keyboard shortcuts regarding non-tools could be changed to include single key shortcuts (like tools). There is no valid reason that any of the File/ Edit/ Object/ Type/ Select/ Effect/ View/ Window shortcuts require using the Ctrl key. Indesign does this already just like many non-Adobe programs. It's time to change this.
