  2. Improve pattern editing mode's slow performance

    Pattern editing mode is notoriously slow. Using complex artwork and textures inside patterns causes pattern mode to hesitate when simply moving objects (even when displaying fewer copies). Because brushes are expanded in Pattern mode, textural brushes can't be used to create patterns without a lot of spinning and crashing. The feature hasn't been improved since it was released in CS6. The new Repeats feature doesn't make fill swatches, unfortunately, so it does not replace Pattern mode. If only we could create repeating art on the artboard and make fill swatches from it without the constraints of pattern mode.

  3. Illustrator and Illustrator Beta File Association Issue in Windows 10 and 11

    When installing Adobe apps, files extension associations work as expected in Windows 10 and 11.

    When installing a beta version of the same Adobe app, files association are moved to the beta version. There is no way to move the file association back to the regular app without manually changing the windows registry because:

    1.) The regular app does not appear any longer in the file association drop down list (in settings)

    2.) Right clicking illustrator file and changing associated app through folder structure locally also does not work. Even though I select the correct app (Illustrator.exe), the beta app…

  4. Adding an mascot assistant

    As the Photoshop has a banana, we want mascot assistant, like the Microsoft clippy. It would work like this: when you are idle in the illustrator with new blank document it would pop up suggesting random design prompts like: "hey why won't you design the logo for the fish food' or "make a brand for the fruit vendor'

  5. 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…

  7. copy object coordinates

    Copy object coordinates / Apply object coordinates would be useful when you want to move an object temporarily, or apply the same coordinates to another object.

  8. Smart Object like in Photoshop

    Smart object for illustrator will be a nice feature. Also it will be awesome if both photoshop and illustrator can work with smart object. Currently, photoshop can handle (automatically convert files to smart object when placed, imported, copied in photoshop) vector/raster objects copied from illustrator document. But for some reason, illustrator doesn't have that feature. Would love to see smart objects/group in illustrator.

    Thank you Adobe.

  9. Ability to link SVG for datasets

    When using variables in Illustrator, you're able to set an image as a dynamic object, so long as it's linked (File > Place, then check Link), as opposed to embedded. This means that I can't set SVGs as variables, since they can't be linked, and have to convert them into images in order to do so.

  10. 別のタブを選択しても表示している画面が変わらない時が発生する。

    別のタブを選択しても表示している画面が変わらない時が発生する。
    すでに開いているタブを選択しても、表示が変わらない。新しいデータを開いても画面が変わらないトラブルあり。
    タブをドラッグして並んでいるところから切り離すと表示される。
    再起動すると治る。

  11. Cursor Key distance > 1296px

    For some reason, the Cursor Key distance can't be bigger than 1296px. I would like it to be as big as the document maximum.
    For some tasks, such as making big pattern tiles, it is very convenient to have a big distance under these keys.

  12. Bug report form for illustrator should accept SVG attachments

    It's very difficult to share SVG bugs with you guys if your bug report form wont accept SVG. Couldn't even 7s it.

    I know this is not an Illustrator bug, but I have an illustrator bug which I can't report because your bug reporter is configured poorly. So that's why I am reporting it under this category. Please pass it on to the appropriate people on your web team.

  14. Have a "lock" option for the gradient annotator

    The gradient annotator adjusts itself when you also adjust the object bigger. I would like for there to be an option where I can have the gradient annotator lock in place while I stretch an object bigger. When I am working on a file that has a gradient to the edge of the artboard but has no bleed, this instance is where this option would be super helpful.

  15. Unit Error Fix

    Adobe Illustrator CC refuses to remember General Unit setting on Restarting the program it switches back to Points, even tho i set it to mm under Preferences - Units - General. This was never the case in any itterations of illustrator & should be categorized as an error fix rather than an improvement, i would like to see this changes asap as its rather disruptive

  16. Constrain proportions and distances

    It would be great to have the possibility to constrain object dimensions and distances inside groups according to their parent or the whole canvas. This function is a basic setting in many UI/UX applications (responsive behaviour for layout, buttons, etc.)

  18. Adding Background Color to Pattern Options

    When creating seamless pattern it would be very helpful to have the ability to select a background color in the Pattern Options palette. Especially for hex shape, if I create a separate background shape the overlapping doesn't always work especially for Hex. I use the Appearance palette as a workaround or manually add a background color/shape. Please see screenshot for reference. Thank you!

  19. Hold middle mouse button to move camera

    This would be better option by default than present Space + Left mouse button combo like in Adobe XD.

  20. Create option to change order & position in which layers are duplicated or copy/pasted in the layers panel

    Layer organization is extremely important to my work. I'm constantly duplicating layers using the select + alt feature, and constantly having to re-order layers because they automatically get placed above the layer I'm working on. I would like the option to make my duplicated layers go immediately below the layer I'm working on.

    I would also like the option for copy/pasted layers to go immediately above/below the original layer, or all the way at the bottom.

    I spoke to an Adobe rep on chat and they said this isn't currently possible.
