  1. Group Overlapping Objects

    A very casual and time-consuming operation, especially because we lost Object Lasso (https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/44462988-bring-back-object-lasso-tool) — drag a marquee around objects, hit Gtrl+G, drag another, group again... repeat dozens of time, especially if you draw icons or something similar for stocks.

    What if Illustrator was able to do it for us?
    Scan the selection, search for overlapping objects and create groups?

    What if it could do that in two modes: simple, by intersecting boundaries, and advanced, when true outlines being checked?

    What if it could do that with a tolerance also? Like if object are, say, 10 pixels apart, group…

    Have online versions of the Adobe Software would be really useful, if using a chromebook for example

  4. Double tap keyboard shortcut key to open dialogue box.

    This should speed up workflow for advanced users and help students learn tools & access dialogue windows faster.

    For example: ‘W’ brings up the blend tool.
    ‘W+W’ brings up the blend options dialogue

                ‘R’ brings up the rotate tool.
                ‘R+R’ brings up the rotate dialogue.
    

    I understand you can double click the blend toolbar icon to bring up the dialogue, or go to properties to adjust rotation. Why not double tap to stream line the entire process.

    As a lecturer it would help students immensely. Learners usually look for (hover over) the icon and click, then navigate the menu to…

  5. Change Illustrator language behavior

    This is simple yet annoying thing Illustrator does.
    It has its own language preferences regardless of what is set by the system.
    This can, at times, cause me to change the language repeatedly during application change.
    Illustrator remembers the last language that was set, so, if for instance I change the language outside of illustrator, it changes it back to the one that was set before. Sometimes my working method requires frequent app changes, this creates a situation where I find myself repeatedly changing the language.
    The workaround is, obviously, to go back to illustrator and change the language there.…

  7. Transparency for some objects when using 3D and Materials

    When extruding an object, some parts within that group need to have some transparency. If I reduce the opacity of some 2D object parts before extruding, it is lost when rendering.
    Honouring Opacity would be brilliant for me.

  9. Adding an mascot assistant

    As the Photoshop has a banana, we want mascot assistant, like the Microsoft clippy. It would work like this: when you are idle in the illustrator with new blank document it would pop up suggesting random design prompts like: "hey why won't you design the logo for the fish food' or "make a brand for the fruit vendor'

  10. Manipulating Guides

    If two guides are selected, the "Distance" option can be selected by right-clicking. In an extra window, the first or second selected guideline is set as the origin, as well as the axis on which the distance is to be manipulated and the value to be manipulated. It would also be useful if you could mirror guides along other guides by simply right-clicking.

  11. Add Layout Features Similar to InDesign

    InDesign has very powerful features that make it easy to quickly create layout structure with Margins and Columns, Ruler Guides, and Create Guides. Most designers use a grid of some sort to create structure and flow in a layout and I wish that Illustrator had these same features so that it was not so painful to create infographics and other illustration heavy designs that still need structure.

  13. Improving and increasing infographics (Graphs) capability.

    Create infographics out of the box. Add Radial column charts (put column bars around a circle) increase size of shape by area (comparison), treemaps etc. There is a wealth of data viz to add to Illustrator. The graphs are ancient tools compared to the other tools in Illustrator. I teach illustrator and I see many students that come from Marketing dpts to learn Photoshop and InDesign and need better capability for Infographics.

  14. An ability to update variables

    I'd like to be able to bind Variables to pageItems and be able to reimport the Variable Library; that is, I'd like to be able to reimport the CSV or XML file and not have to rebind the Variable to pageItems.

    This would let me create a template or master file that is ready to import new data without having to rebind the Variables.

    Also, make Variable binding scriptable.

  18. OBJECT > TRANSFORM > ROTATION to work with 4 decimals

    When selecting OBJECT > TRANSFORM > ROTATE...manually entered rotation angles are truncated to 2 decimal places. I experience a loss of pattern repeat with that kind of truncation across large pattern rolls. If we could manually enter 4 decimal places, that would be extremely helpful to my work!

  20. ARM processor compatibility

    I know Adobe has already made Photoshop and Lightroom compatible with ARM processors, please make Illustrator next! I didn't know I'd end up returning to uni to study design and my laptop is more than a year old so there is no way I can return it ..thank you!!!
