  1. let me interact with the artboard while having appearance-effect dialogues open

    As soon as a dialogue from the effects panel is open (e.g. 3D extrude & bevel or drop shadow, etc. ...) I cannot interact with my artwork anymore as the dialogue box hogs the focus. This is really annoying as you often want to adjust the size or position of your object when editing the effects to better see if everything meshes well together

  4. Show Layer/Object name in Properties Panel

    Could the name of the currently selected object or layer be displayed (and even editable) in the Properties panel, at the very top where it tells you what is currently selected? That would save so much time.

    Other than that, really like the new Properties panel!

  6. Combine the swatches and gradients panel

    Combine the swatches and gradients panel so previous used swatches can be added. It would also simplify the UI

  7. Allow Save Options to be Skipped

    Personally, I'd like to skip the extra dialog after I name my file and click the Save button.

    If I actually want to alter any of the settings, I'd prefer to do it by actively clicking an [Format] Options button in the Save dialog (opening a new dialog) rather than after already naming the file and clicking the Save button.

    Sometimes performance is slow enough that it takes some time for the next dialog to even show, which breaks my workflow as I move on to other tasks in other apps, thinking my file is safely saved already (I did…

  9. These properties should now be

    1- Gradient panel > for gradient sliders > eyedropper is must be active
    2- Swatch or color panel > right click must be active > for stroke color
    3- Asset export panel > only selection out export ( fit to select art )

    These are the properties that should be. When will he come?

  10. A darker theme on windows

    The Mac version of Illustrator has a much darker theme, and switching to the Windows version was a bit jarring, but I prefer the darkness. Could you tweak the darkest theme on Windows to make it look more like the Mac one?

  11. Scale tool isn't working

    20 year user. Been patient through many updates always re-finding my way. This one really disrupted my everyday use. Sorry it's a swing and a miss.

  12. Customize Application Menus with COLOR in Illustrator

    Help! I love that Photoshop gives us the tools to change the way our toolbars look by highlighting the text in the columns with beautiful colors to the ones we use the most. I have yet to find this in Illustrator and I'm pouting; my memory depends on color coded hints... because that's what they taught me in kindergarten.
    I added an image with screen shots for my artsy comrades as we are all visual beings. I'm going to wait in my happy place until I hear from you. Thank you in advance.

  14. Make the menus equal

    InDesign and Illustrator menus are too different. It's hard to switch. Please make it equal. For example: Window menu: In Id it's grouped and in Ai not (better to find something!). See attached.

  15. SCREEN IS ALL BLACK ON OPENING EXISTING FILE

    Just updated to latest version of Illustrator this morning and when I open an existing file to work on it, the entire art board is BLACK. Only way to fix the problem is resize the Mac art board window. My whole team is experiencing this problem. PLEASE FIX ASAP.

    Also copy-and-paste from illustrator to indesign seems like it has been disabled as well. Come on, folks... this is not good.... Super unhappy.

    We have reverted back to the previous version in the meantime.

  16. Radial interface (popup) for previewing ALL THE SWATCHES.... S I M U L T A N E O U S L Y.

    If a user wants to preview ALL the swatches in the swatch library at once, the time and sequence of events to do so is extremely unnecessarily tedious.

    "Preview all swatches" button -> BAM: radial view of all swatches on screen. (doesn't even have to be legible. text can be upside down. Maybe rotate it with the mouse wheel. Click one swatch set -> then Bam! That's the swatch docked to the panel. All the others dissapear. or "Unsummon the swatches" button.

  18. 3 improvements for general non-print UI

    Would it be possible to enable global pixel snapping-possibly assigned to a modifier key combination when moving things directly(not via a dialog)? Could you have rounded corners as a parametric property when unexpanded, with separate W & H values, (expressed as PX and % if it doesn't dilute the general paradigm)? When transforming (particularly SCALE), could the bounding midpoints be shown, maybe in a different colour, if their position on their respective axes is outside of the viewport, to enable grabbing/moving them? So you dont have to zoom out and lose accuracy? Thanks

  19. I use a MacBook with Touch Bar it would be great if there was a way for the touch bar to mirror the top options menu. File, Edit, Object etc

    I use a MacBook with Touch Bar it would be great if there was a way for the touch bar to mirror the top options menu. File, Edit, Object etc. So if I click file all the file options open up then you can keep going into options. The current touch bar options leave a lot to be desired and I think this is a way to greatly improve the use.

  20. Improved HiDPI Windows support just like Photoshop 19.1

    Essentially do with Illustrator what you've done with Photoshop (https://theblog.adobe.com/photoshop-releases-version-19-1-selections-improvements-advanced-support-windows-high-density-monitors/). That is "[offer] a full range of choices for UI scale factors from 100% through 400%, in 25% increments. [... A]utomatically adjust itself based on your Windows settings, making it simple to set up."
