  1. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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。

  8. Animated/Scrubby Zoom in Outline Mode

    Illustrator should have the option to use Animated/Scrubby Zoom in Outline Mode to improve workflow and not have to switch to the inferior zoom to selection tool.

  9. 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?

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. PINCH TO ZOOM ON WINDOWS

    Is it so hard to make the same smart touch pad features that’s already available on Macbooks, available also on Windows? Like there’s literally more windows users than mac users and all of the new windows laptops have the precious keyboards that allow for pinch to zoom and other smart gestures. It can’t be that hard of a change to implement like c’mon! All I’m asking is to be able to pinch to zoom on my touch pad and have 360 movement with my double finger dragging! On a WINDOWS computer!!! How the heck have y’all not fixed this yet?…

  14. 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…

  17. Send crash reports to plugin developers.

    Today I was exploring a plugin. It is a very nice plugin that does some very powerful things but it is also a little fragile, and it crashed a lot while I was using it. I quickly learnt to save a lot while working with this plugin.

    And the crash report dialogue kept on piling up. But I knew it would be useless as this was very likely to be due to something I was doing to make the plugin break, rather than Illustrator break. What're AI's developers gonna do with this crash log? Nothing. It's useless to you.

    I…

  18. Make Preferences User Friendly

    These are various recommendation to simplify preferences in all Adobe Applications.

    • list groupings (ie General, Type, etc.) in alphabetical order
    • or list groupings in logical order
    example for the first three - General, User Interface, Performance...
    • re-review all preference settings and reduce or simplify (Slices has two option?)
    • incorporate a search function to provide the user the ability to quickly locate a specific preference (refer to Apple's System Preferences Search capability.)
    • make preference category lists universal in title and order for all Adobe applications when possible

    The reason is, I wish to work and not…

  19. Escape key should deselect any selected object

    This would be extremely useful when you are zoomed in and a lot of objects are filled in your screen and there's no empty space around to click if you ever wanna deselect an object. Please map the escape key so that it deselects any selected object.

  20. Copy in shift-command-m

    In shift-command-m, Move, you had the option of copying by hitting option-enter on the keyboard. You took away that option a few years ago and this is slowing me down.
