  1. Remember Pathfinder Options across sessions

    Currently, the Pathfinder Options are not remembered across Illustrator sessions. This can be tested with the following steps.

    1. Launch Illustrator.
    2. Via the Pathfinder panel, use the flyout menu to open Pathfinder Options.
    3. Set the precision to anything other than 0.028 pt.
    4. Quit and relaunch Illustrator.
    5. Reopen the Pathfinder Options. The precision has been set back to 0.028 pt.

    It would also be good if the Pathfinder Options were able to be recorded as an action. It seems like a bug that they can not now — recording an action for it appears to work, and there is a Pathfinder Options…

  2. Create a version of Illustrator for crafters - no 3D, but with border feature etc in order to work with digital cutters without expense

    So it would be a entry level version of illustrator - concentrating on 2D output to SVG for electronic cutters, plotters and other crafting tools. Similar to Photoshop elements but for those needing to work with vector files.

  3. Transform Tool

    Hello illustrator. A couple versions back, the transform tool didn't lag after hitting tab when typing in a number in x. Now I have to wait five seconds before typing a number in y otherwise the element will not move to the desired position and I have to type the number again.

  4. Introduce bevel joint clamp values for strokes

    Adobe's miter limit is something quite weird. I was lucky to find and bookmark this article to learn it, finally:
    https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/mswanson/2006/03/24/miter-limits-in-illustrator-and-wpf/

    As you can see, AI have no tools for defining how much of a stroke would be cut when joint is beveled. I want some.

  7. Why dont you make it so that when you send us a new update that it includes the addons? i get tired of having to fix the addons i have.

    Why is it so difficult for you not break my addons? I have an addon for cutstudio that is no longer available. I tried removing it and reinstalling it at least five times already since i last updated Illustrator and still not showing under window/extensions... As advance as this software is and how much i pay for it every month I shouldnt have to deal with it breaking.

  9. Auto search and update photos when photos removed to other locations

    If I keep AI file with link images, then the images were removed to other folders, when I come back to AI file, I have to relink all. Any possibility of automatic relink function instead of manually relink each image?

  12. Right Click Menu Enhancements (Cut, Copy, Paste, Lock, Unlock, etc)

    Can you please add simple tasks like "Lock / UnLock" and "Cut, Copy, Paste" to the the right-click menu? This would help speed up workflow and make illustrator more integrated with other Adobe products. I can right-click my mouse and quickly copy and paste in Indesign and even in Microsoft Word, but not in Illustrator? It's odd. Please consider fixing this. Thank you.

  13. Images with Transparent Backgrounds add a white background to It after Image tracing

    When I take a image with a transparent background I expect after I expand it that there is no white background added to it and it remains transparent.

    This is not what is happening, I get a white background when using image trace and it adds SO MUCH time and tedious work to remove all the white from very complex images.

    For the cost of this program this is like a punishment, Im paying adobe to put me through **** in my own work. Not cool adobe, not cool....

  14. Bounding box not visible / non-existent for Graphs

    The bounding box is non-existent for graphs drawn in illustrator. Have tried turning on/off "hide edges" under view, restarting, shutting down, but nothing is working. Scaling tool is useless too as the bounding box remains invisible.

  15. Ability to create an action for Recolor

    It would be nice to be able to create a set preset to limit a certain library for recoloring and then be able to create an action for that present library.

  16. select same by stroke weight/stroke color within a graph (CC2018)

    In CC2017 with a direct selection arrow, you could select by stroke weight or color, within a graph. After the CC2018 update you can no longer use the Select by options within a graph. Please bring back that feature.

  17. When it will be fixed question.

    Dear Developers of Illustrator CC and Management team, i have seen the list of all of your pretty names in about illustrator section and can now play "How many Kumars worked on the latest version" game. It may be different in your culture and menthality, like you have more patience, tolerance, you think strategically and working on the long term goals or such. But why do you think that a half cooked curry should taste as good as propery cooked? Why for the heavens sake do we have to spend more time working as your Quality Assurance, and have a…

  18. Create design oriented PDF forms

    It would be very helpful to have an option of creating PDF forms in Illustrator.
    Creating forms in Acrobat PRO is very clunky for anyone who needs more design oriented features. It would allow graphic designers to create editable PDF templates for products such as cards, invitations etc. Such templates are in a high demand, people want to purchase files that can be edited with ease and there are no good options for creating them.

    Such feature would also be very helpful in InDesign for catalogs, brochures, anything with multiple pages.

  20. Change default Reference Point when creating a symbol

    I like to have the reference point of my symbols up in the left corner (instead of center, as it is by default). So, every time I create a symbol I have to change this option. So, I type the name, I tab two times, and then click the down arrow to button to set it to a static symbol. Then I have to grab the mouse - to change the reference point. This slows down the work flow quite a bit. I would like to have the top left corner as default, or at least make it changeable by…
