  1. Keyboard shortcut for group selection tool

    "A" gives us the direct selection tool Could we have a keyboard shortcut for the group selection tool please? (Or press A a second time, toggling between the two selectors?). Many thanks.

  2. Group items on multiple layers and retain original layers

    We need the ability to group items that are on multiple layers in a way they retain their original layer (ie, items don't merge to one layer when grouped). This would be invaluable when selecting pieces of art that are in intricate proximate to other items where it's not practical to use the selection or direct selection too. Also valuable for using Warp features with items on multiple layers.

  3. Editable text in Dynamic Symbol instances

    For dynamic symbols to make sense it should be possible to edit the text content, color, and other text attributes of each symbol instance without altering the master.

  4. 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.

  5. Existing documents open to your preferred units, even if they were created in different units

    So I often work with people in different countries and we often have different unit preferences. I work in mm but when I open files from fellow creatives in America for example, they are often using inches.

    Now I thought that my preferences being set to mm would mean it would show the files in mm, but apparently this only applies to new documents you create, not to existing files. This seems so crazy to me given the digital, remote working, globally collaborative world we live in today.

    Please could this be a thing because going into the settings every…

  6. 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…

  8. Blending modes respecting self intersecting strokes

    When drawing with a real marker, overlapping strokes are darker than single strokes.
    I would like Illustrator to have the option to mimic this when using strokes in Multiply mode. It works with to separate paths, but not with self intersecting paths,

    Compare left and right in the image.

  10. Move selected objects while "object selection only by paths" is on

    When "object selection only by paths" is on in my preferences, I should be able to move a selected object while clicking on it's fill. At the moment, if I select an object, and then click left mouse button down and drag on it's fill to move, the program think I'm trying to do a drag selection, and that make no sense.

  11. Global Edit in Isolation mode

    Global edit is very powerful but not a fully realized feature.
    Many things are missing from it (like this one: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-feature-requests/suggestions/35768314-create-symbols-from-global-edit)

    Another one is that the Global Edit button is completely missing when you are in isolation mode. So instead of entering a group and editing similar objects only in this particular group, we are forced to lock similar objects manually (because GE won’t allow to do it), EXIT the isolation mode, start GE and edit found similar-s with everything else NOT isolated (which obstructs editing).

    Let me provide a practical example I am working on. I have several…

  12. オブジェクトを一括選択した際、実際に選択しコピペなどができる機能

    同一アピアランス+類似形状のものを一括選択をで選択状態になった場合、レイヤー分などのデータ編集のしやすさが向上すると考えます。

    特に、添付のような総柄のデータを編集する際に、
    個々のオブジェクトの整理がより簡便にできると考えております。

    現状、類似形状のオブジェクトを編集することはできるが、編集したのちにレイヤー分したり、コピーして貼り付けすることはできない仕様だと思いますので、ご検討のほど、よろしくお願いいたします。

  13. Make Envelope Distort compatible with Appearance

    Envelope Distort has an entry in the Appearance palette, but that doesn't seem to be of any use. It can't be edited, deleted or moved.

    Why not make it really part of the Appearance?

  14. Image Trace upgrade

    Image Trace is a considerable downgrade from Adobe Streamline auto-trracing. Streamline produced higher-quality tracings from higher resolution images, and there used to be features for tweaking the tracing.
    Now it's just a generic medium-to-poor quality tracing. Very disappointing.

  15. Pasting on another layer from a another document

    If i copy something from one Illustrator file and want to paste it in another, i don't want it to paste in my locked layer, i want to choose which layer to paste it in. It doesn't give me an option to paste in my choice of layer but one that it chooses for me.

  17. right click object to hide that layer/object without opening the layerspanel.

    Is it possible to create a function with rightclick object to hide that object or layer? Instead of select object and then hide it in the Layerspanel? For some reason i allways try to do that though that function doesnt exist.

  18. Transform each object to exact measurement

    As well as the option to Transform Each object by scale, it would be very helpful to have the option to transform to an exact measurement, i.e., transform each object to 2mm width.

  19. Distribute non-uniform objects equally

    Would love to have a function that would arrange/distribute different non-uniform objects evenly within a prescribed area. This would be similar to how the current horizontal and vertical "distribute spacing" works but across a two dimensional area rather than just one dimension. The spacing should based on the edge of each object, not from the bounding box.

    This function would be valuable for:
    -creating unique patterns
    -quickly arranging objects for a layout involving many individual objects
    -maximizing space for printing/die cutting individual custom pieces such as stickers

    User defined parameters could include:
    -apply to selected objects
    -fit within artboard
    -fit…

  20. Support for ARIA in SVG (accessibility)

    There are a couple of requests for improvements to SVG export, which is sorely needed. One important aspect of this is accessibility.

    SVG use is increasing, and accessibility requirements are being mandated in jurisdictions around the globe.

    There will be a growing need for people to produce accessible SVG files.

    This calls for supporting ARIA roles states and properties, and some way to indicate tabindex.

    A number of constraints can be imagined to prevent people doing the wrong thing (e.g. if you put tabindex=0 on a non-operable element), but the basic functionality is far more basic.

    Select object.
    Open aria…
