  1. add point in simplify panel -click art with panel open

    with the object / path / simplify feature, it seems like the ability to quickly add a point to the outline by clicking on the artwork, while the panel is open for refinement. the feature in there 'show original outline' combined with this new recommendation would be a very intuitive way to refine a shape.

  2. I hope CS5.6 sale

    私はCS3使用時の機能要望をいくつか取り入れて戴いたCS5.5ユーザーです。
    CCは経済的負担が大きいので使っていません。
    Win10にCS5.5を入れましたが、特に問題なく使えています。
    CCになってからデザイン業界を除く個人ユーザーが更新しなくなり、
    古いバージョンのまま使っているユーザーが多いのは認識されているはずです。
    画面デザイン的に繫がりがあるのがCS5.5までで、
    CS6からは大きく変更になりました。
    OSが実質Win10だけになり、動作環境の面でバージョンアップを迫られているユーザーが多いはずですが、
    それでもCCは無理と考える人が大多数です。
    バージョンアップしたいユーザーが受け入れやすいCS5.5をベースに、
    パッケージ(売り切り)版を再販して貰えば、需要がある事は明らかです。
    ここで、最低2つの機能改善を行い、CS5.6としてリリースしてはどうでしょう。
    機能改善は、
    1.描画編集中などにナビゲーター画面が逐一全画面更新され、データが重いとスマートガイドやコピー&ペーストなどのキー動作が不安定になる。長い文字の入力編集中は特に酷い。これを極端な話、ナビゲータ画面に付けた「更新」ボタンを押すまで画面更新しなくていいようにする。
    2.現状、文字の縁取りが文字の塗りの上になっているが、文字の塗りの下に設定できるようにする。これで一々「文字を全てコピー」「背面ペースト」「縁取り設定」をやらずに済む事になり、データが軽くなり、修正も楽になる。なぜ今までこれが出来ないのか不思議と思える基本的な機能です。

  3. Implement adaptively-sampled distance field (ADF) technology for 2D drawing

    Please incorporate adaptively-sampled distance field (ADF) technology into illustrator's drawing tools. Adobe already licenses this technology for use in fonts, and Mischief the only 2D drawing software that incorporated the technology has been discontinued.

  6. Layer name suffix when pasting in XD (behaviour changed in 2020)

    1. Description:

    When I copy and paste vectors from Illustrator 2020 to Adobe XD, suffix "1" is being added to each later.

    This doesn't happen when I copy from Illustrator 2019 so I assume this have benn changed in Illustrator 2020, not XD.

    1. Why is this valuable to you?

    I create all my icons in Illustrator but keep them in huge XD file so that devs can easily get them as SVGs.

    With this additional suffix, my workflow is slower as I have to remove them each time I add new icon to XD file.

  9. make one layer from more layers like in photoshop

    Hello, I would really like it if different layers could be used to create one layer, just like in photoshop.
    (so if you work with a lot of layers, and you repeat the design on the same page, or want to create a pattern, this doesn't work)
    I very much hope that this will be possible in the future

    You can do that using Layers panel’s menu (a hamburger icon in top right corner). Select layers you need and choose one of three available commands: Merge Selected, Flatten Artwork, Collect in New Layer.

    Also, you can operate with a selection of object on canvas. Select object you need there, focus a layer you want you objects to be in and apply Object > Arrange > Send to Current Layer.

    Finally you can drag a square marker of a selected objects in Layers to another layer to move them.

    Please comment on how it works for you.

  10. Expand selection

    when I have something selected, I can shift+option click the art board somewhere else to expand my selection box and select everything between.

  12. Notify me to update to the newest version when I'm not using the program

    I often get the notification to update Illustrator when I'm in the middle of a project. I'd be more apt to update if I received the notification when I am not using the program.

  14. Combine Illustrator and InDesign into a one stop tool.

    Would it be that much of a stretch? I'm, seriously, curious.

  15. crop borders

    Whenever I crop an image, a thing, light-colored border automatically appears around the newly cropped image, making merging two adjacent images by hand annoying. Removing this automatic border would be very helpful.

  16. Modify the open dialog (icons views)

    Modify the file open dialog when the view is one of the icons views so that it displays a thumbnail of the file itself rather than the generic AI icon. I frequently want to open an Illustrator file in a folder that contains LOTS of illustrator files ("Owl 15, Owl 16, etc). At that point I have to stop and bring up Bridge so I can see that the owl with the glasses is number 23. I'd open it with Bridge, but that doesn't work when Illustrator is already open. Maybe fix THAT bug while you're at it ;-)

  17. Edit Character properties in a mixed selection

    When having a complex set of objects selected, including one ore more Text Objects, it would be nice to have access to the Character/Paragraph properties.

    Current version simply ignores any changes when something else is selected besides a Text Object.

  18. keyboard unable to type words when running

    Once I run the Illustator, my keyboard unable to type words, and the mouse arrow keeps running the loading icon. I uninstall the version of 23.0.6 and installed 23.0.5, now it looks fine.

  19. Student Subscription for Individual Apps

    There should be a student subscription for individual apps.

    I only need illustrator, but $20 a month for one app is still overwhelming for a student, especially since I don’t get paid for the work I do on the app. It wouldn’t make sense to spend so much on the Creative Cloud just to use one app. 60% off, like Creative Cloud, would be much appreciated, but even 40-50% would do.

  20. Allow auto update scheduling

    The auto update feature is nice, but it might become a bit of a hassle as you need to close the apps to update.

    I would propose to have a drop down option to allow the Adobe CC suite to

    • Download the updates on the background and then ask when to install, thus not getting in the way of on going work

    • More importantly, allow an scheduling of said background download, so it can be downloaded during the least network stressed time of the day.
