  3. Make Illustrator modular so if you don't use certain functionality you can deactivate it

    Speaking to our in-house developer, he suggested having a feature where if you don't use certain functionality, you can turn it off. Hopefully this would make the software run quicker.

  4. Adopt the XD simpler way to Manage art boards by selecting his header name.

    One of these few things I feel more productive in Adobe’s XD, is the capability to quick move and rename the art boards right from the main view, without taking your hands off the mouse.

    In illustrator, usually it’s two or three clicks away, under menus and tabs, or command keying to change to “art board selecting” tool. By far, those are time consuming breaks in the cognitive process, needing to focus on a repetitive task, specially when you have to manage big projects with more than 20 artboards.

  5. Ability to make the image flush left in the window instead of centred

    Currently I have to enlarge the image until it pops out of the frame, and then I can work on the zoomed in area, but it would be nice to have the ability to make it flush left. This would better utilize the frame when I have tabs open. My current workaround is arranging the frames 4-up, and then sliding the other windows over.

  6. Please, please update/change the opening illustration that appears when you launch the program.

    The confused, agitated (sleeping?) puckering girl in the 80's tshirt is killing me.

  7. Remember Panel Options (like row size) when restarting Illustrator

    The default row size is far too small on a 5K screen. I set my row size to be at least 50px, but I have to do this every time I start a new doc. It would be nice if defaults could be set in preferences.

  8. marquee zoom

    Is marque zoom gone from Illustrator?

    Why on earth each update increasingly becomes pain as they keep removing good features.

    I bet they've never tried to work with pen tablet. Zoom out with CMD+1 then quickly zoom-in to an tiny icon with Z+select the bit to zoom to.

    With marquee tool it used to be dead simple and lighting fast, with the 'new', ****** scrubbing tool we have to wear down the tablet surface in order to zoom to a desired element. Well done Adobe.

  10. Simple requests go unnoticed.

    There is a function in Illustraor that allows selection by whole or by path and it is called: Object selection by path only. It is in the prefs under selection tab. This SHOULD BE also in the top bar as VERY often I need to switch it when working on paths, especially in shadows work.

  11. Mini Map

    Hello Adobe Team. I really don't know why you don't implement a little MINIMAP into Adobe Illustrator that provides a little preview of the actual work and makes it possible to zoom in by clicking on it. Working with Illustrator would be much easier if I had a little map window where I could just click on a section of my artwork and zoom straight to that point. So I wouldn't have to zoom in and adjust again and again after zooming out. And I could always see the whole picture. Maybe it's nonsense or not possible but I think…

  12. Option for "Don't collapse panel"

    I never want Layers panel to collapse completely when I enlarge other panels. Other panels are less important to my workflow and I don't mind what they do, but I'd like to have the option to lock open a heavily-used panel so I'm not constantly having to expand it.

  13. Masking simple and fast objects - Quo Vadis My Pallete?

    Masking simple and fast objects - Quo Vadis My Pallete?
    Illustrator has several practical methods for masking objects. Bravo and thank you!

    But in practice...
    object masking is superimposed and confusing. I know what I write. I use Illustrator 20 years at work and iine applications.

    On the forum you can also find many problems or ideas to improve this section. Dear Adobe team, you can certainly improve it.

    Best Regards!

  17. workspace window

    The newest update does not fix the issue I am having with the workspace window falling off the page when I try to drag the bottom right corner to better fit my art/desktop as needed. Does not respond to the position of my mouse, I have to over exaggerate where I want it while I click and drag my mouse.

  19. Automatically move to input box when selecting a transform option

    This would improve workflow by allowing users to not have to click on the input box when transforming a layer. It actually used to be a feature but was removed for reasons I'm not aware of.
