  1. Create design oriented PDF forms

    It would be very helpful to have an option of creating PDF forms in Illustrator.
    Creating forms in Acrobat PRO is very clunky for anyone who needs more design oriented features. It would allow graphic designers to create editable PDF templates for products such as cards, invitations etc. Such templates are in a high demand, people want to purchase files that can be edited with ease and there are no good options for creating them.

    Such feature would also be very helpful in InDesign for catalogs, brochures, anything with multiple pages.

  2. Change default Reference Point when creating a symbol

    I like to have the reference point of my symbols up in the left corner (instead of center, as it is by default). So, every time I create a symbol I have to change this option. So, I type the name, I tab two times, and then click the down arrow to button to set it to a static symbol. Then I have to grab the mouse - to change the reference point. This slows down the work flow quite a bit. I would like to have the top left corner as default, or at least make it changeable by…

  3. Shape Distribution Tool

    A tool you can use with selected objects, that would distribute those objects, in layer order, around the outline of the designated shape, most likely a circle/oval, square/rectangle, triangle, star, or custom shape.
    This would be a great layout assistant for placing, scaling, and rotating different kinds of objects at once. A time-saving and more accurate way to create many types of layouts.

    With this tool, you could:
    - distribute different types of objects (shapes, text, symbols, etc) around a shape
    - scale the shape and objects independently
    - auto orient rotation to the center or the line segment in…

  4. When a layer is locked don't ask me if I want to unlock it. Instead give me a drop down list of all the layers to choose from

    Usually when pasting something in Illustartor if the layer is locked it means I didn't select the right layer. If I could choose which layer to paste to I wouldn't have to cancel, select the correct layer and paste again

  5. When embedding images flatten all images option without having to scroll through each one

    When embedding my links to go to press I have multiple links and it is redundant to ask everytime if I want to flatten each image one by one. There should be an option to flatten all highlighted images in one shot. If I have 70 documents to go to press with 30 links each it can get very time consuming.

  6. Recent files list - right-click menu with "Open folder"

    In Illustrator (and also other Adobe apps): when the program is started but no document is opened there is a list with icons representing the recent opened documents. My suggestion: Add a right-click menu on those icons with an option to open the document's folder in Windows Explorer.

  8. Zoom to selection disable button please

    A simple disable button for this new feature, i've been using illustrator for over 20 years and this is one of my most used key commands and i'm being driven close to madness. Thanks

  9. Web-based app for use on Chromebooks, etc.

    With many schools and individuals going entirely Web-based, we are unable to use the Illustrator/other Adobe tools on Chromebooks, tablets, etc. There is a real need for this, especially as schools implement makerspaces. Even beyond that, the world is so very Web-based now. I think Adobe is behind the times.

  11. 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.

  12. One line fonts

    Hi,

    I have tried Illustrator to design name tags to engrave on our engraving machine. Unfortunately single line fonts, which are essential for some engravings, isn't working properly. Bought them from onelinefonts.com and they are working flawless in most other apps, but none of Adobe's so far.

  13. Change Illustrator language behavior

    This is simple yet annoying thing Illustrator does.
    It has its own language preferences regardless of what is set by the system.
    This can, at times, cause me to change the language repeatedly during application change.
    Illustrator remembers the last language that was set, so, if for instance I change the language outside of illustrator, it changes it back to the one that was set before. Sometimes my working method requires frequent app changes, this creates a situation where I find myself repeatedly changing the language.
    The workaround is, obviously, to go back to illustrator and change the language there.…

  16. Data feature within illustrator

    It is possible to merge data from excel, but it would also be a fantastic feature to have an excel feature within illustrator. You can fill a table with datasets and link the data to elements multiple times in different artboards. To change an element everywhere you just need to change it in the table (like objects, but only the data). So several different text boxes and different links to imported images can be edited at once. Would be a great feature for all different sizes for Social Media posts. You set up several different sizes change the content once…

  17. Eyedropper to to show ink percentages in elements.

    A tool that if you click on an element in the file will show you the percentage of spot or process color being used in that spot. Make it live so you can move around easily and not pick up the art. Similar to the info panel in photoshop. We use a program called PackZ that does this. A screenshot of the use of the eyedropper is attached.

  18. Please add a feature so that we can set scale such as 1:100, 1:50 and so, and create drawings. This helps to create technical drawings.

    Please add a feature so that we can set scale such as 1:100, 1:50 and so, and create drawings. This helps to create technical drawings with much ease. Also, Illustrator will be able to increase its target customers. I have been using illustrator to create floor plans of building with much ease and lesser time than other software. This software has user friendly interface. So, please make it more suitable for technical drawings. Adding features to calculate area will also be very useful.

  19. Similar to Flux Eyedropper Tool Plugin for Adobe InDesign

    A tool like Flux Eyedropper Tool for Illustrator would be a game change for faster workflow. I use this for Indesign it's a serious game changer.

    https://www.fluxconsulting.com/software/

    Instructions and user flow:
    1. Hold down the Control + Option keys, then release the Control key.
    2. Use the Eyedropper tool as you wish.
    3. Release the Option key to return to the tool you were using.

  20. オブジェクトを一括選択した際、実際に選択しコピペなどができる機能

    同一アピアランス+類似形状のものを一括選択をで選択状態になった場合、レイヤー分などのデータ編集のしやすさが向上すると考えます。

    特に、添付のような総柄のデータを編集する際に、
    個々のオブジェクトの整理がより簡便にできると考えております。

    現状、類似形状のオブジェクトを編集することはできるが、編集したのちにレイヤー分したり、コピーして貼り付けすることはできない仕様だと思いますので、ご検討のほど、よろしくお願いいたします。
