  2. 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。

  3. Select multiple identical objects and make each its own group.

    I'd love to see a feature in which you could select a bunch of similar objects, each of which had multiple parts, and it would automatically make each individual object into its own group. For example, I just drew an oval with a line down the middle - which is a leaf. I copied and pasted it 100 times but didn't make it into it's own group first (oops). If I could just select them all and make each it's own group, it would save me going back and grouping them first and doing it all again. They're a pain…

  4. The Named Views feature should be expanded for more names, listed alphabetically, and be more easily editable..

    The Named Views feature is under developed. It is useful for complex drawings with several Artboards and many layers. Its functionality can include several categories of the Illustrator program. Attached is a file with several points of improvement.

  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. Select Options Panel (available within workspace view)

    While working on complex illustrations I find myself frequently needing to switch the 'SELECT OBJECT BY PATH ONLY' option off and on.

    It would be hugely helpful if a 'SELECT OPTIONS' panel was available directly within the workspace.

    Alternatively, a preference which offers 'SELECT IGNORES DROP-SHADOWS' would make life so much easier too. Quite often it's necessary to select an object by its fill rather the the path. Problem is, drop shadows of nearby objects keep getting in the way.

    Only option is to lock objects or layers... this can be extremely frustrating when you need to lock and unlock…

  7. Criar um histórico de ações, igual ao photoshop.

    Poderíamos ter um histórico de ações igual ao Photoshop. Desta forma conseguiríamos selecionar ações específicas para voltar, ao invés de ficarmos dependentes do "Ctrl + Z'.

  8. Distribute objects doesn't work properly now

    Illustrator updated the other day (as did Photoshop and InDesign). When I select a group of objects to distribute evenly it changes the overall area to something much more narrow. I am now having to place each object by hand. Please fix.

  9. spark icons in illustrator

    With the icons in Adobe Spark being free to use, and especially now that we have the ability to save files from Spark as a PDF, I've found myself utilizing the iconset from Spark in Illustrator (across Adobe CC really) by creating a blank document, inserting icons, saving as PDF, opening in Illustrator.

    It would be awesome if this process could be streamlined with the icons from Spark possibly being added to Illustrator, Photoshop, etc. Possibly from an addon, or by adding a new live and constantly updated set of symbols similar to how Adobe Fonts has been incorporated into…

  10. Allow dragging multiple selected layers from one file to another

    Allow dragging multiple selected layers from one Illustrator file to another (as in Photoshop) w/o exporting them or needing to depend on Paste Remember Layers, but let the drag behavior drop the layered artwork into the other file with a Paste in Place feature.

  11. Have Untitled Illustrator document be reset to number 1

    Dear Sir or Madam:

    I don't like the way Adobe Illustrator keeps incrementing an Untitled document numbering each time you create a new file. I would rather have Adobe Illustrator Untitled document be set to Untitled-1 document each time I create a new Adobe Illustrator file. Please consider this feature. Thank you very much for your time.

  13. Illustrator should be able to import any unicode character

    I was trying to use Runic text in an image but illustrator wouldn't enter anything but boxes with X's in them. I contacted support and they told me it was because no language supports the runic symbols.

    This strikes me as absurd, as even applications such as notepad or openoffice can handle it, I could even send the runic text through the chat client I used to communicate with the support (as well as in google translate).

    This should really be fixed.

  15. Make Limited color palette in Image Trace allow more than 30 colors

    Why is "Limited" Color Palette restricted to 30 colors? I often need a few hundred but not as many as Automatic gives. And Automatic would be great if the Color Slider actually worked proportionally but it randomly goes from over 1000 colors to less than 30 or some unsatisfying number, not the smooth curve one would expect. Therefore I have to use the superior Live Trace feature on my old Mac with CS on it. Either lift the restriction on Limited or make Automatic perform according to the slider.

  16. Discounts for Senior Citizens

    Adobe, I hope you read this, I was pointed here... I don't feel this is the correct place, but here I am. You have made Millions in Revenue in your last quarters and it would be really nice if you gave back to the folks that didn't have an income that still supported you! Seniors should get discounts along the lines of college students. Universities let them come to classes for free... While I am not asking or suggesting this, I do think that it is time you think about this as a Company.

  17. New symbol info window should retain properties of previously created symbol

    When creating a new symbol, it should remember not only the export type, but the symbol type and registration as well, instead of having it default to dynamic-center every time. Usually when creating symbols, they are of the same type as the last. This is how Flash handled symbols way back in the day and it was an invaluable time saver for projects containing dozens of clips (such as site plan artwork).

  20. Layers in Actions

    When creating a custom Action, I would like to be able to switch off specific layers as art of that Action. At the moment, this is not possible, but adding this feature would speed up my daily workflow - and the workflow of all of my colleagues. Please consider it!
