  1. Adobe Preview supporting Illustrator

    I use Illustrator to create mobile UI, if I were able to view it on device the way I can with photoshop with adobe preview it would be a great helpful feature.

  2. Unable to set preference for object selection by center point.

    I do not want to select objects by their center point. I never do. I do not want to have to change this setting in the Attributes panel every. single. time. I want to disable object selection by center point.

  4. PDF Comment Tool

    I like to design website visuals in Illustrator and add PDF comments in Acrobat but doing so means I need to re-add all the comments each time I save a new version of the PDF.

    It would be great if there were a commenting tool in Illustrator that would export to PDF comments so I can add notes as I create artwork, rather than going back and doing it after each export.

  5. Dragging from Bridge to Illustrator

    Change the standard file-placement behaviour from Bridge to Illustrator so that it places the contents of the AI file (rather than a PDF or a PNG).

    Say you've got a local library of picture elements, and you're browsing it in Bridge; you need to bring those elements into a currently open AI file. What do you do?

    The obvious thing is to use Bridge like a library navigator, and simply drag the ai file into your composition. However, you can't;What actually happens is you get a PNG file; if you shift-drag you get a PDF file; both are useless.

    And…

  6. Fix blending of strokes

    As described in this discussion (from 4 years ago!) - https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1291256 - in most cases when you apply a blend to two strokes with any profile other than uniform, the intermediate stages of the blended strokes do not have any profile applied to them. I believe this has been a problem at least as far back as the introduction of variable width strokes, and has still not been resolved. This seriously hampers the usefulness of the blend tool and massively increases the amount of time required to produce the desired effect.

  8. Ability to create an action for Recolor

    It would be nice to be able to create a set preset to limit a certain library for recoloring and then be able to create an action for that present library.

  10. Paste svg content from clipboard, not underlying xml content

    There are several design tools that can put SVG text on the clipboard including Illustrator. Please support pasting that content from the clipboard as content, not xml text. XD does this correctly, so Illustrator should too.

  12. can we have a Chinese paragraph arrangement function (Hyphenate) in English Illustrator, which is now only available in Chinese illustrator

    as a Chinese English Illustrator user, we are more familiar with English Illustrator interface than Chinese, even though we can read Chinese. It will be really convenient for us to have the hyphenate function, which is now only available in Chinese Illustrator, to be also available in English Illustrator, like Hebrew, Arabic, Dutch etc...

  13. Restore pressing Ctrl + Alt + Enter in Transform’s Width and Height fields to constrain proportions AND copy at the same time

    I thought I could explain this feature only with a video. Even though it was difficult and I took risks, I was able to prepare it by finding a portable CS 11 version.

    I want this feature back for Transform Palette. Because they destroyed it or forgot about it or no one knows about it.

  14. Share for Review with watermark

    While I like the Share for review feature, I would appreciate if there was an option to activate watermark.

    The benefits of watermarks are too numerous to list, but the most important is:

    Deterrent for Unauthorized Use: Watermarks act as a deterrent for individuals seeking to steal or misuse a designer's work for commercial or personal gain. This protection encourages respect for creative rights and discourages infringement.

  15. Optional thousand separator for graphs in y-axis

    Graphs in Illustrator are really useful, however, after copy-pasting data from Excel, the y-axis values all come out without thousand separators, like $1000000 - I then manually add thousand separators so that the value reads $1,000,000 - it would be great if in right-click > Graph Type > Value Axis, there was a check-box that read "Enable Thousand Separators". Easy :)

  16. Line Chart - make it possible to start line on value axis

    I do often need the line to start on the value axis.
    At this moment, I can't do this using the Chart-Tool, effectivly making these type of charts impossible to create without messing up the Chart by manually changing the axis.

  18. The default color space should be RGB.

    It is 2023, with the changes in printing technologies, Ai should have RGB as the default color space. I know that there are long time users who probably live in cmyk, but aren't best practices to work in RGB and then convert to cmyk for the particular job?

  20. Add separation preview toggle to Share for Review

    When SHARE FOR REVIEW with a stake holder
    Since it is basically a PDF, it would be nice if there was a way to toggle of the separations, especially if it is a spot color only set up and separations are important? or process and a spot color? Is this possible
