  1. Pan and zoom on multipul artboard at once

    Hi,

    I am wondering if there is a way to locate and zoom all open windows at the same time in illustrator. Like in compare window in lightroom. When you zoom and pan over the image, it helps you compare and spot the difference. I am in packaging and sometimes i am using the same diecut and artwork, but different product. i would love to pan and zoom over the artworks on multiple windows to compare and spot the difference.

  2. I loathe this 2021 update

    There are so many issues with this update. I'm not even sure where to start. Functions that were always present are now gone. This is seriously messing with my speed and efficiency. What a mess!

    Where did the free transform function go? When I'm using the selection/direct selection tools, the anchor points for resizing are gone. PUT THEM BACK!

    Key commands aren't working properly. Example: Command C > command F should paste in place, but NOT duplicate. I've spend stupid amounts of time trying to figure out why the **** I have extra boxes.

    There are more, but these are…

  3. Cloud-based Review like InDesign - Brilliant!

    The latest version of InDesign has one of the best features (new?) that I have come across in a very long time. I'm actually excited about it!

    It is the share for review feature. This is a huge game-changer for in terms of controlling proofing and review.

    I use Illustrator to create large format text panels, and this exact process would be amazing to have as well.

    I am not aware of anything in Illustrator that allows this same type of collaboration. Perhaps it is there but I do not know of it?

    With the move to more online PDF…

  4. Mobile Banking to Pay for Illustrator & Reduced fees based on country specific financial status.

    Countries like Bangladesh faces a situation where using cracks is the standard practice. And as a Bangladeshi I would like to put two requests:

    1. Reduce prices depending on geocultural financial status. In Bangladesh, 4$ - 5$ would be a standard price.

    2. Keep options of using local mobile banking services to pay for adobe subscriptions. In Bangladesh the most popular is "Bkash".

    If you consider my suggestions, your revenue would increase for sure. And people like me would not be forced to use *****.
    Thanks.

  5. Send proof to customer

    We proof every item to customers before printing. It would be great if there was a tool to send a proof that could be approved through all common design programs. Giving the customer the ability to submit for changes and do a final approval before the job goes to print.

  6. Stop changing the name of Illustrator application.

    Most applications retain the same "Application" name between versions. This makes transitioning between versions easy when working with a script-driven automation workflow. Illustrator is unique because the application name changes with every "update". This greatly complicates our ability to easily update Illustrator in our workflow. Please consider maintaining the same application name like most applications do.

  7. Add URLs to objects in PDFs

    Have the same functionality as InDesigner, where you can sign URLs to objects, making them interactive in PDF format. The current workaround of opening and adding the link in Acrobat isn't good enough - if you need to edit the illustrator file you then have to re-add all of the links!

  8. Allow for no anti aliasing on Large Canvas Size

  9. 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…

  10. Have a Context Menu Option to Relink Placed Items (Local or Cloud Library)

    I would like to direct select a placed image/cloud library item and right click and Relink the item direct from the mouse context menu.

    Right now I have to click it, then move my mouse to the top bar or links window. LAME! 😜

  14. Please update your troubleshooting/fix instruction for the bg "The operation cannot complete because of an unknown error. [CANT]".

    Effect - > 3D -> Extrude & Bevel...

    Following all the Adobe Support site instructions, the bug could not be solved. Even after uninstalled Illustrator and re-installed it, the issue persist.

    Environment:

    *MacOS Bug Sur: 2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 & 16 GB(Memory) 3733 MHz LPDDR4X

    *Creative Cloud - Illustrator 2021

    Applied all the troubleshooting documented in:

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/how-to-reset-illustrator-preferences/td-p/10602277?page=1

    And other similar pages without positive results.

  16. Print Nesting

    Illustrator needs the ability to perform efficient object nesting. This would greatly help in making files for printing and cutting as well as saving loads of time. Please add nesting to Illustrator!

  18. Add the Make Compound Path icon back to the properties panel

    A couple years ago, there was an icon (below the pathfinder tools) that appeared in the properties panel when you had multiple items selected - Make Compound Path. A subsequent update removed that tool from the properties panel. Release compound path is still available right there in the properties when the selected object happens to be a compound path. Some people suggest just using the pathfinder Union to make a compound path, but it's definitely not the same thing as making a compound path (pathfinder union on non-connected items makes a group, not a true compound path - they're not…

  20. Rasterize multiple objects to separate images at once

    It would be great to select multiple objects and apply the rasterize settings to each of them as seperate images in one go.

    currently i have to select each object and rasterize them individually. would save a lot of time if there was a checkbox that allowed you to apply it to all of the objects separately instead of rasterizing them together as one big image
