  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. GTX 1650 Tiをサポート対象にしていただけませんか?

    1650も1660も1660Tiもサポート対象なのになぜ1650Tiはサポート対象外なのでしょうか?

  11. 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?…

  12. 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.

  13. 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。

  14. 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?

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. Select objects within another object's boundary

    It would be nice if you could select objects within or partially within another object's boundary. This saves lots of manual selecting.

  19. Select all objects in view

    It should be possible to select all objects that are in view (the selection excludes locked objects).
    This is a very useful time-saver in many other applications.
