  1. How much the arrow keys move a selected object around in any direction **w.r.t. the zoom level**

    I think the primary goal of letting us control the object with the arrow keys is so we can be accurate with its placement on the artboard. But this becomes completely useless if the zoom level is very high, in which the arrow keys move the object a big distance. This forces us to use the mouse to get an accurate position for the object.

    What I really need: If we've zoomed in on an artboard, then let the arrow keys move the object a smaller distance than usual so that we can be more accurate with an object's placement…

  2. All adobe packages should keep automatic timetracking per new file

    Every designer or design company needs to keep his timetracking in order. Instead of second guessing or manually entering timetracking data in an external file all adobe products should keep active time per file/document.

    Active time meaning the file is open and you are working inside it and not just counting standby time as well. Because with each change you keep a history, you could watch the history, if the history is changing adobe updates the timetracking for that file. You measure the time between two active periods. If the history is not changing during the last 10 minutes or…

  3. Few Additional Features

    Fill & Stroke Color Picker Dialogue with Single Click.
    Fill and Stroke should bring its Color Picker Dialogue with a Single Click on it, which one is active we would just click and bring its Dialogue.

    Layers Panel.
    Holding or pressing the Control key and clicking on a new layer icon in Photoshop to creates a new layer below all the layers if no layer is selected, if a layer is selected then you do the same action will create a new layer below the selected layer which really makes sense.
    The same thing would be very comfortable in Illustrator…

  4. Image Trace results have deteriorated over the years, detail is lost and line work looks terrible!

    I’m a full time illustrator and have been using Adobe Illustrator since the launch of CS - so it’s been years :) I LOVE the app, in fact it’s how I make my living as an illustrator and the app features have contributed to my style development and workflow.

    Which brings me to the feedback I’d like to give regarding the Image Trace tool. My illustration style is a mixture of hand crafted, grungy texture and flat colour. I achieve this by creating pencil on paper line work, scanning then I image trace in Adobe Illustrator to vectorise. BUT, I…

  7. photoshop distortion feauture

    could you please add a distortion feature such as the one in photoshop for clipping mask objects and linked images on illustrator? I know that illustrator already has one called 'envelope distort' but I find it difficult to use.

  8. レイヤの表示状態を保存するカスタム表示の機能向上

    カスタム表示を一度設定したあとに、レイヤを追加したり分けたりすることが多々あります。その都度、一度「表示の編集」から削除して「新規表示」に追加しなければならず、手間がかかります。AutoCADにも同じようにレイヤの表示状態を保存する機能がありますが、あちらは一度設定したあとでも表示状態を変更して同名で保存すれば上書きができますし、名前をつけた設定ごとに表示状態の編集もできます。大変便利です。
    ここまで出来なくとも良いので、せめて同名で保存した場合の上書き機能を付けてほしいです。

  9. Allow show path on hover with snap to grid enabled

    Currently, enabling Snap to Grid doesn't allow the user to see paths when hovering over them. Please make it so that users can hover over a path and see it highlight with snap to grid enabled.

  10. The ability to create guidelines exactly as you can on

    The ability to create guidelines exactly as you can do on Photoshop.

    I want to be able to split my artboard into sections columns/rows of equal measurements as I can do when designing on photoshop.

    It's so limiting to only be able to choose guidelines by a specific measurement width apart.

    I design files for print such as A3 - 420mm x 297mm

    If I want to split that into 4 columns of equal distance - t's just a massive headache figuring it out, so I don't bother and do it by eye! Would much rather have an easy way…

  11. Where is Project Lincoln?

    I notice that there isn't even an option to comment on the ridiculously archaic graphic tool in Illustrator that hasn't been updated, as much as I can remember, since the early 2000s.

    WHERE IS PROJECT LINCOLN? Why is this such a black box for Adobe? Why do you not address this AT ALL?! I don't know if you've been paying attention, but there is a LOT of data going around these days and we could USE SOME @#$%ING HELP!

    UPDATE THE GRAPHING FUNCTION!!!!

  12. Don't display clipped outside paths in Outline View option

    Sometimes we have a large pieces of artwork clipped.
    Sometimes we don’t care what’s inside until we isolate these to edit the clipped art directly.
    Still, when we switch to Outline View, we see all the art that is clipped, clumped, overlapping, messy.
    For these cases it would be nice to have an option to not draw parts that are outside and beyond of clipping paths.
    Corel’s products does it a bit wrong — they don’t draw clipped parts in Outline at all, including parts that are inside. Ai should do it better.

  13. WHERE ELSE ASK...?? is there ANY way I can get a senior discount? $54/mo is hard to swallow at my age.

    PLEASE Adobe, figure out a way to support your seniors - you know, the folks who paid over and over for hard copies of your programs only to have them evolve to subscriptions only relationships. It's one thing to feel like you're dealing with the Mafia when you're using the program to generate income. But now I'm retired, and just want to use the Illustrator and PS programs for personal projects. Making pillow art for my grandchild, stuff like that. I'm living on a very small income and that $54/mo is going to start forcing me into that "shall I…

  15. Sell a 2 pick your own software Adobe bundle.

    I find the adobe suite to be too expensive, specially since I only use Pshop and Illustrator. But getting them individually is also too expensive. Would be awesome if Adobe provided us with a bundle for like 25 bucks where we could pick any two adobe programs if its the 20 dollar ones or 15 if its the 9.99 ones.

  17. scale tool doesn't work in make pattern

    The scale tool currently does not do anything within pattern mode. Maybe this worked in previous versions, but would like to see all tools working within pattern mode on future updates

  18. Hide Selection and Show All

    Hide selection and show all, objects that we hide with the hide selection command should be warned when closing our working file. When we open the same file at a later time, we cannot know what we have hidden with the hide command. There should be a warning or sign when closing or opening the file.

  20. Switching tabs doesn’t show the correct image in High Sierra

    It’is absolutely impossible to work on Illustrator 2020. I have version 24.2, and there constantly switching tabs doesn’t work correctly. No matter what tab I've selected, I can only see 1 file. This happens randomly, and I have to restart the program to get the tabs to work properly again.

    By the way, this is also observed in Photoshop 2020.

    This bug is at least one year old. I don’t know how to fix it.

    P.S. These screenshots are not mine (I don’t know how to cause this bug). But I have exactly the same situation
