  1. Allow objects to have the same set of properties of After Effects

    Many animators prefer to rebuild geometrical shapes made on Ai on AE because it allows full access to the properties. But if AI incorporate the same set of properties from AE, it will be solved.

    ok, I know: Overlord does it....

  2. Eyedropper to to show ink percentages in elements.

    A tool that if you click on an element in the file will show you the percentage of spot or process color being used in that spot. Make it live so you can move around easily and not pick up the art. Similar to the info panel in photoshop. We use a program called PackZ that does this. A screenshot of the use of the eyedropper is attached.

  3. Pan tool wrap

    When you pan with the mouse button/wheel held down, the panning stops when the cursor reaches the monitor edges. This forces user to release mouse, move it all the way back and re-grab it.
    In some other editors you can continue to move the pointer and it will 'wrap' around your monitor, going from the opposite side of it, until released.

    Basically you can pan until you reach the end of your table.

    This mode will help those who have to work at scale and pan without unzooming. Please, add it!

  4. Data feature within illustrator

    It is possible to merge data from excel, but it would also be a fantastic feature to have an excel feature within illustrator. You can fill a table with datasets and link the data to elements multiple times in different artboards. To change an element everywhere you just need to change it in the table (like objects, but only the data). So several different text boxes and different links to imported images can be edited at once. Would be a great feature for all different sizes for Social Media posts. You set up several different sizes change the content once…

  5. Alt+drag to duplicate multiple spline knots and segments

    Up until the Illustrator 23.1.1 update, splines with overlapping knots and multiple selected spline segments could be duplicated easily by:

    1) using the "A" select tool to select individual knots or segments of a path,
    2) region-dragging to select several knots,
    3) begin dragging then quickly hold down the ALT key before releasing
    This would duplicate the knot and it's connected and the newly created connected segments. If only segments were selected, then the new segments were created while dragging, <important!> keeping their anchor knots where they originated at either end of the spline. It was a very efficient tool…

  7. Please add a feature so that we can set scale such as 1:100, 1:50 and so, and create drawings. This helps to create technical drawings.

    Please add a feature so that we can set scale such as 1:100, 1:50 and so, and create drawings. This helps to create technical drawings with much ease. Also, Illustrator will be able to increase its target customers. I have been using illustrator to create floor plans of building with much ease and lesser time than other software. This software has user friendly interface. So, please make it more suitable for technical drawings. Adding features to calculate area will also be very useful.

  8. Please make version 25.2.1 available

    Please make version 25.2.1 available again for either direct download or in Creative Cloud. We use this specific version and were assured by Adobe that it would be available for at least another year. It is now disappeared from Creative Cloud and Experts tell me that it is not available for download. This version is essential to our business. Thank you.

  9. pointer

    I am told I am the only one ever to have this problem in adobe illustrator. But the tool " pointer " is sticking, I am unable to use it. The hand grab tool is on. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it. I can't do projects or lessons unless it is fixed. It is important to me because I am in class to learn Illustrator and I cannot go any further unless it works. I have called adobe with no answer or person to talk to. I have spoken with my teachers and they told me to do this and…

  10. Change line color and fill color of groups in one click

    Let say you have multiple groups existing of line segments and filled objects (lines and circles for example). If I want to change the color of the lines and objects of a group, by clicking on a group, that is not possible. Or all line segments get a fill too or all the objects get a line too.

    To fix this, I have to go inside the group, select all the objects, change the fill and then select all the line segments and change the line color.

    A button to change the color of all line segments and the color…

  14. Ability to copy the name of a folder to other folders

    I name folders with the same name (ex-"PDF REVISED) to several different folders for several different jobs, but now I have to type out each name on each and every folder. Older versions of Illustrator had this function. Please bring it back.

  15. Similar to Flux Eyedropper Tool Plugin for Adobe InDesign

    A tool like Flux Eyedropper Tool for Illustrator would be a game change for faster workflow. I use this for Indesign it's a serious game changer.

    https://www.fluxconsulting.com/software/

    Instructions and user flow:
    1. Hold down the Control + Option keys, then release the Control key.
    2. Use the Eyedropper tool as you wish.
    3. Release the Option key to return to the tool you were using.

  16. Tie a child shape to parent shape to keep it aligned to parent when resized

    Hi everyone,

    I posted this as a question in the Illustrator forum (here's the original thread https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/set-shapes-as-child-and-parent-objects-for-dynamic-box-designs/m-p/11688904?page=1#M256580) and was suggested to submit this as a feature request here.

    I design boxes in Illustrator for precise cutting in my Silhouette machine. The main problem I encounter with is when I make a box which its shapes are all perfectly aligned, but I then find that I need to tweak its interior size. When I'm doing so I have to re-align all the different pieces of the box shapes such as the spines, wings, etc, since there's no option to tie…

  17. 한국어로도 단축키가 되도록 부탁합니다.

    한국어 버전으로 작업을 할 때 언어가 한국어로 선택되어 있으면 단축키가 작동하지 않습니다. 다른 어도비 프로그램 중에는 한국어로도 단축키를 설정할 수 있는 것이 있습니다. 일러스트레이터도 한국어로 지정되어 있을 때도 단축키가 적용될 수 있길 부탁드립니다.

  18. We need consistency between Adobe programs.

    When are we going to get consistency between Adobe programs?

    Some examples:

    • Resizing in Photoshop and Illustrator: one requires SHIFT to retain proportions, one doesn't

    • Clicking the Fill/Stroke colour in Photoshop and Illustrator: one requires double clicking, one doesn't

  20. ArcGIS plugin for 2021 and 2022 (Macs)

    Adobe CC doesn't allow installing Illustrator versions prior to 25.4 and this plugin requires 24.0 to run. Latest update removed my prior version and I can't recover it. This plugin is critical for my day to day work. Please upgrade the plugin on Macs as soon as possible! Thank you.
