  1. Animated/Scrubby Zoom in Outline Mode

    Illustrator should have the option to use Animated/Scrubby Zoom in Outline Mode to improve workflow and not have to switch to the inferior zoom to selection tool.

  2. Cluster nudges as one "move" for undoing

    In Photoshop, when a user nudges an object by holding down an arrow key for an interval of time, PS clusters that series of nudges as one "move". Then the user can undo all of the nudges at once with one "Undo move" command in the History panel. Since Illy doesn't have a History panel (and why is there no History panel? Don't like it, don't use it.), it's impossible to undo all of the nudges with one "Undo". Please make Illy treat nudges like PS does.

  3. Add a notes/comments feature

    Hello! Adobe should add a feature to add notes to layers, groups, or anything else! They could be hidden so they won't clutter the workflow.

  4. Resize Imported or linked Picture to 100%

    Right click on an imported or linked image (Like a picture you just took with your phone or any other image) and have an option "Resize to Original Size" or "Resize to 100%." Similar to Apple's Keynote application for imported images when you click the button "Original Size."

  5. Toolbox zoom and hand tool on same tab instead of separate tabs making it slower to select since having to flip back and forth all the time

    Previous versions CS6 etc had the toolbox panel better laid out: Hand tool and zoom tools were on a separate tab now CC doesn't give the choice but having them both on a same tab so having to hover, drag etc every time I want to select my favourite tools is really tedious whilst there are many useless tools on the toolbox displayed why changing a feature that worked perfectly in previous versions?

  6. Can't edit simultaneously two several selected fills in Appearance

    AI allows to select several fills in Appearance, but you can only delete or duplicate them then.
    If I select two fills with Shift+click, for example, and try to apply new swatch, it would be applied to first selected fill only. If I try to add effect — it would be applied not to both, but selected only again.

  7. Support for More Keyboard Shortcut Modifiers

    I want to map shortcuts using the option/alt modifier key. Illustrator won't let me do this natively, nor through macOS's Keyboard system preferences. Please consider changing this.

  11. Make "Export Selection…" Actionable.

    The fact that "Actions" is not in the list is telling.

    Make "Export Selection…" Actionable. Currently, it is not recognized when recording an Action of when "Adding a menu item" to an existing action.

    Actons, in general, are in dire need of attention in Illustrator. Please consider making them a priority.

  12. Please make an easier way to export a seamless pattern tile from Illustrator

    Please please can you make an easier way to save or export a seamless pattern tile - at the moment it is difficult to extract a tile from a complex pattern to use in Photoshop etc. Many people buy stock vector patterns to use in Photoshop and it would save a lot of time to get them easily from Illustrator to Photoshop.

  13. 'Expand' generates excess groups, clipping groups, compound paths and other unwanted vector garbage. Keep it simple!

    Try expanding a brush or a 3D shape and take a look at the large pile of unwanted groups, compound paths and clipping masks Illustrator has generated for you. It just adds complexity to the file and makes the object appearance tricky to work with. See example ai file attached.
    If you have Astute Graphic’s Vector First Aid plugin you can remove all that stuff and see just how simple and usable your vectors can be (I recommend it), Wouldn’t it be better if Illustrator didn’t generate junk in the first place?
    Please make sure Illustrator only generates the barest…

  15. Actions panel

    Everything is so tiny, and the actions panel is too. When you run an action you see all steps, and if you want to try another of your actions you have to scroll a mile to get there. It's very difficult to get an overview of the actions you have. So I would like to see the steps of the action in a separate window, so that you don't loose the overview of your actions. You shouldn't see all steps in the same list as the actions that you have. Also I would like to be able to have some…

  16. An ability to update variables

    I'd like to be able to bind Variables to pageItems and be able to reimport the Variable Library; that is, I'd like to be able to reimport the CSV or XML file and not have to rebind the Variable to pageItems.

    This would let me create a template or master file that is ready to import new data without having to rebind the Variables.

    Also, make Variable binding scriptable.

  17. OBJECT > TRANSFORM > ROTATION to work with 4 decimals

    When selecting OBJECT > TRANSFORM > ROTATE...manually entered rotation angles are truncated to 2 decimal places. I experience a loss of pattern repeat with that kind of truncation across large pattern rolls. If we could manually enter 4 decimal places, that would be extremely helpful to my work!

  20. Split- screen on all on adobe software

    Can you please consider adding the split-screen view to your softwares, predominantly Ai, Ps & Id. It is pretty hard to follow up with online classes/tutorials from Udemy, YouTube, Domestika if I have to keep switching windows back and forth and it is really frustrating. Help us Designers tackle tasks easier and more effective during this pandemic and busy workload
