  1. patterns

    I want the pattern to be able to connect more to the resulting repeat. With that I mean for example this.
    1) If I draw a line freehand, from left to right. Then I would like to be able to make a seamless repeat of that line. So at the right I can "connect" to the left end and join/smooth it together
    2) If I want 4 similar/identical things spaced evenly and repeated. Then I can distribute the group to space it evenly. But on the left and right side (or top/bottom) how do this spacing between the items gets…

  2. patterns

    I want to be able to make patterns in layers. So if I use layers when I make a pattern, then I get a pattern that is editable in layers. It would save much time if you want to make variations.

  4. Get rid of Adobe Stock

    I am really really sick of having Adobe Stock rammed down my throat. I don't want it, never will. Give me the option to turn it off!

  6. Chromebook compatibility

    Hello,

    My school is considering purchasing a laser cutter/engraver to be housed in the Library for all students to use, and I understand that we will also need to purchase software such as Adobe Illustrator. The problem is that many of our students use Chromebooks, which really don't have a hard drive. We're not in favor of just having 1 or 2 Windows machines sitting by the cutter/engraver, mostly because that limits usage. Is there any other option? Does Adobe offer a Chromebook-compatible software? Or, is there any way that a student could design something in another program, then import…

  7. 【要望】境界にジャギが発生するのを改善して欲しい

    CC2015から2017にアップデートしてから、
    Aiで作成したデータにpsdファイルをリンクしてサイズを縮小すると、
    pdf保存をした際やaiファイルをPsから直接開いた際、
    透明の境界にジャギが発生するようになりました。

    Aiでの作業中は特に境界が見えることはなく、あくまでそのファイルを
    pdf保存またはPsから直接開いた場合のみに限ってのことです。

    ※「書き出し」からpsd形式にした場合はジャギが発生しませんが、
     アンチエイリアスのかかり方が気に入らないためできればAiで
     完成させたデータをそのままPsで開きたいです。
    ※以前のバージョンでも縮小したリンクファイルのあるAiデータを
     pdf化するとファイルの境界にジャギが発生していましたが、
     pdfだけだったため作業に支障はありませんでした。

    psdファイルを原寸で作成して原寸でリンクすれば良いのですが、
    レイアウト段階では大きいサイズでリンクして最終的に使用するサイズに
    縮小することが多いので可能であれば以前のバージョンのように
    直接Psから開いてもジャギが発生しないプログラムにできないでしょうか。
    文章での説明だとわかりにくいため、サンプルを作成して添付しました。

    古いバージョンのようにpsdファイルにパスを作って透明部分をカットし、
    epsファイルに変換してリンクすればジャギは発生しませんでしたが、
    それだと操作性・効率が悪く非常に作業がしにくいです。

    今のところリンクファイルにPs側で少し光彩をかけて境界をぼかすと
    ジャギが発生しないことがわかったためそれで対応していますが、
    光彩をかけられないデザインの場合もあるため対処に困っています。

    自分で解決策が見つけられればと思い色々と検証してみましたが、
    効果的な方法を見つけることが出来なかったので、
    次回以降のアップデートで改善して頂けると大変ありがたいです。
    もしOS側の問題(Wondows8や10なら発生しない)のようでしたら
    その旨をアップデートの際ユーザーに送られるメールなどに
    記載して頂けると助かります。

    Ps:Photoshop CC 2017

  8. Rotation center point remains with objects and groups, and is used when rotating an object using the bounding box controls.

    I want to be able to permanently edit (and reset) an object's (or group's) rotation axis (centre point). I want the new rotation axis to apply for subsequent rotation transformations, for example when using the bounding box controls.

    Currently, the rotation tool (r) allows you to pick up and move an object's centre, and then rotate the object around that point. Great, except that point disappears as soon as you exit the rotation tool, which isn't very helpful.

    I'm told Corel Draw had something like this... I can't overstate how much power and efficiency it would add to my workflow.…

  9. "Check Spelling" Back or Undo Last Button

    Add a back button or Undo Last button in the "Check Spelling" dialog box. Many times I accidentally skip a word that needs correction and I have to restart "Check Spelling" from the beginning.

    Other times I accidentally pick the wrong correction and have to quit "Check Spelling" undo the fix and restart the process all over again.

    Thanks!

  10. Make Illustrator PDFs more automatically accessible

    Accessibility is incredibly important. Obviously Adobe wants to help but it is incredibly limited in Illustrator. If you supply multiple artboards, character and paragraph styles and great text placement options, you should make the PDF export carry those options through. What's the point of using InDesign when you only have two pages? Who needs to files for every project?

  11. Keyboard shortcut to hide/show selected Layer

    Option to assigne a keyboard shortcut for hide/show selected layer. Currently you have to click on the eye icon, which is pretty cumbersome. (for eg Photoshop has this feature, I think).

    (I'm on a project where you need to trace this huge sketch with ready made elements and so toggle layer visibility is a fast way to see how things are aligning.) Cheers!

  12. Paste svg content from clipboard, not underlying xml content

    There are several design tools that can put SVG text on the clipboard including Illustrator. Please support pasting that content from the clipboard as content, not xml text. XD does this correctly, so Illustrator should too.

  13. template location

    Custom templates, etc. should not have to be stored in the application folder... which means I'm throwing away user-generated documents when I upgrade the app.

  15. Objects snapping to objects from other artboards.

    I hope this is the right location for this. It may be more of a feature request. When trying to utilize the smart guides to align two objects be dragging, often times the object I am dragging will snap to objects from other artboards. This forces me to select the objects that I want aligned, choose a key object, then go to align panel to make sure they are lined up properly. Snapping to the nearest object or something along those lines would make the most sense. Or maybe setting to allow this.

  16. Folders for symbol

    There should be a way to organize all symbols (i often use more then 30 symbols per document), it gets very messy in the symbol window. It would be so much easier to organize and keep track of everything with the ability to create folders in the symbol window.

  17. More advanced 'Add Anchor Points' function

    'Add Anchor Points' is quite archaic at the moment. My requests:
    1. Allow to apply to selected parts of paths, instead of the complete path.
    2. Add a dialog to set the number of subdivisions / points added per segment.
    3. Allow to assign it to a keyboard shortcut
    4. When adding to a curved segment, the new anchor points should be smooth, not broken.

  18. 単位の自動切り替え機能

    カラー形式によって文字や線の単位を自動で切り替えてくれる、もしくは予めいくつか設定を保存しているものに切り替えるという機能が欲しいです。
    DTPとWebデザイン両方をIllustratorで行う場合、DTPはミリメートル、Webはピクセルと単位が異なるため、その都度環境設定から単位を変更するのが若干手間だと感じています。

    例えばアートボードのカラー形式によって単位を変更する機能があるととても便利です
    (CMYKに設定すればミリメートル、RGBならピクセルになるという風に)
    ご検討のほどよろしくお願い致します。

  19. The ability to increase the text size of any menu, pallete or dock item. Some of us are going blind.

    Give users more flexibility with the program interface please. This will help alot of people with eye strain.

  20. Give us the option to buy the software, not rent it

    You say you're a company with integrity and you adhere to ethical standards, but there's nothing ethical about charging a monthly/yearly subscription fee rather than selling the software outright. It's a shady business practice and I will be finding another program for design work.
