  1. Distribute non-uniform objects equally

    Would love to have a function that would arrange/distribute different non-uniform objects evenly within a prescribed area. This would be similar to how the current horizontal and vertical "distribute spacing" works but across a two dimensional area rather than just one dimension. The spacing should based on the edge of each object, not from the bounding box.

    This function would be valuable for:
    -creating unique patterns
    -quickly arranging objects for a layout involving many individual objects
    -maximizing space for printing/die cutting individual custom pieces such as stickers

    User defined parameters could include:
    -apply to selected objects
    -fit within artboard
    -fit…

  2. Align to Key Object using Direct Select

    Double clicking on an object while having direct selection active does not cause the object to become key object. This is possible only when selection tool is active

    Recommendation: allow double clicking to select key object while under direct selection tool

  3. Align to Artboard is set as default

    Align to Artboard is automatically set to default, even after changing the toggle to Align to Selection.

    It used to work that whichever you selected, that selection would remain. But now, it always switches back to Align to Artboard. Very frustrating.

  4. (Also for Indesign). Alignment groups

    Please add feature to add an item to a group, but not have it factor into movement when Aligning.
    Ie I have an item/group of items, and a Trademark symbol. Suggested new feature would Add the Trademark symbol to the group, but when aligning this new group the Trademark feature is not factored into positioning.

  6. Please a "Center to page" in the MENU BAR. And...

    Centering objects to page requires several steps... Many times in design, one needs to center an object to the page. by having that action in menu bar it can be done very quickly and efficiently. It can also be in the RIGHT click drop menu.

  7. Bring Back Align To as a USER CHOICE !!

    No ONE solution fits for ALIGN TO function. How about going back to when USERS HAD CHOICES. The fancy dynamic feature sucks. I want control BACK to what is being align. I don't want that. tool to change how it works. Bring Back Align To as a USER CHOICE !!

  8. Align two points

    The "Align" tool works on lines with 3 or more points. Sometimes, when working with two-point line segments, the end-points get vertically or horizontally out of line. Can you make the "Align" tool work on two-point lines, as well?
