  1. 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.

  3. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. Artboard Mod

    IDK anything, just learning tried multiple products so far AI is the only one I have accomplished anything in. My current issue may just be just be user error due to the lack of knowledge and experience. So I am designing new dash panels for an antique kenworth truck. The panels are flat with lots of round holes I have the old panels and have been taking measurements from them but I have experienced 2 problems #1 is that AI measures from the edge of the art board. #2 I cant seem use the edge of the art board as…

  7. Add RANDOMIZE button (RANDOM SEED) for 3D Materials like Substance 3D has.

    Add a Randomize button (RANDOM SEED) for the sbsar materials that we import when working with 3D within Illustrator. This way, 3D objects, look different within your work. Example from Stager as to what I mean that would like implemented in Ai.

  10. 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!

  11. 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…

  13. 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....

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  18. 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.

  20. 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…
