  2. Drag-and-Drop Swatches to Artboard

    This functionality wouldn't change the swatches palette it, but would allow users to drag a swatch to the artboard and drop it. You could tile several to create a tonal family or brand color set.

    Being able to scale them larger, arrange them, reformat the grid, turn the white gap off in between colors would improve color adjustment and comparing hues side by side. They'd function like the existing swatches panel in that you could have a shape or stroke selected and apply the color by clicking the swatch on the artboard.

    This would help in color exploration and creating…

  3. 変形効果ダイアログにも縦横比を固定ボタンが欲しい

    変形パネルのWHのサイズ欄には縦横比を固定するボタンがあって便利です。変形効果ダイアログにも同じボタンがあるとより便利に使えると思うのです。

  4. プロパティパネルのアピアランス部分に濃度設定を追加してほしい

    現状のアピアランスパネルでは塗りや線の色を設定する際に塗りのアイコン部分をクリックするとスウォッチが開き素早くカラーを変更可能です。しかし、そのスウォッチに対して薄い色が欲しい場合、開いたパネルで1回ボタンをクリックすることによりカラーパレット表示に切り替えた上での調整が必須です。
    この手順はワンクッション増加するためにプロパティパネル上の不透明度の設定を調整することで代替してしまうというワークフローが増加しています。これはデータ上に安易に透明効果を適用した部分を増加させる事に繋がり、適切な設定を施されないままトラブル誘発の原因となってしまっています。
    なにより、不透明度を下げるという事はその下の情報を表示する事に繋がりますから色を薄く設定するという意図からはかけ離れた行為であると言えるでしょう。
    また、以下のチュートリアルにおいても色を薄くする目的でに安易に不透明度の利用を勧めています。

    https://helpx.adobe.com/jp/illustrator/how-to/basics-essentials-workspace-illustrator.html

    この説明はまずいです。塗りの濃度調整及び不透明度の設定はそれぞれ明確な使い所が存在し、適切に使い分けるべき機能です。

    さて、ここで提案なのですが、InDesignの様にプロパティパネルのアピアランス部分の「塗り」と「線」の項目に濃度の設定項目を追加していただきたいと思います。
    InDesignとはスウォッチの性質が異なるのですが、設定したスウォッチに対して濃度の項目で設定した数値を単純に割合として計算した数値のカラーを適用出来れば問題ないと考えます。
    添付の機能追加提案分の画像の赤で囲んだ部分のイメージのようにしてはいかがでしょうか。
    こうする事でユーザーは簡単に塗りや線の濃度を調整可能となります。

    ぜひご検討頂けたらと思います。

  5. OpenType features can be set in the Character panel

    Currently, OpenType features settings can only be set in the OpenType panel. As a result, the user experience is poor. Being able to set OpenType features in the Character panel will improve the user experience.

  6. Added a slug area in document setup

    In InDesign's document setup, there are Slug settings in addition to Bleed.
    https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/how-to/set-print-bleed.html

    There is no a slug area in Illustrator. As a result, users are stacking another large artboard underneath the artboard as an alternative to a slug area. This situation should be remedied by adding Slug settings.


    InDesignのドキュメント設定には、裁ち落としに加えて印刷可能領域の設定があります。
    Illustratorには印刷可能領域の設定がありません。そのためユーザーはかわりに別の大きなサイズのアートボードを下に重ねています。この現状は印刷可能領域の設定を追加することで改善されなければいけません。

  7. XMP Meta Data、MM:Historyの機能改善

    現在、IllustratorではXMPメタデータ上のHistoryの記述が最大で2個となっていて、初回保存時に1つ目、別名で保存時に2つ目が記述され、以降、別名で保存によるファイル派生が生じた時に2つ目のHistoryが更新される仕様になっています。
    Photoshopでは、このHistoryの項目に保存履歴だけではなくconvertやderived等の主要な編集イベントの情報も記述されます。InDesignにおいても保存イベントは詳細に記述され履歴の確認が可能になっています。
    Illustratorにおいても、もう少し細かく履歴情報の記述を行っていただきたい。

    以下に各サンプルを挙げておきます。

  8. Delete from recent files

    As you know, Illustrator keeps exported images in the File > Open Recent Files list.
    So if I export 20 TIFs from a single document — they will all will be listed there.

    This is dumb, and there are multiple requests to stop this:
    https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests?query=recent%20files

    There are also requests to be able to clear that list (guess why there is a need for this).

    But we should also be able to remove positions from the list one by one.
    Use cases:
    1. I renamed a file and now I can’t open it via this menu
    2. I moved the file…

  9. Clipping path in JPEG image file works in placement

    A JPEG file can include clipping path. This clipping path works well when placed in InDesign. However, Illustrator ignores this clipping path.

    If clipping path in JPEG works in placement, the user will be more creative.

  10. Update all linked files

    When you have a large number of linked files changes, but you have a manual mode with the confirmation, you can’t say 'Update all links' in the dialogue window, and you don’t have it as a button in the Links panel.

  11. Change line color and fill color of groups in one click

    Let say you have multiple groups existing of line segments and filled objects (lines and circles for example). If I want to change the color of the lines and objects of a group, by clicking on a group, that is not possible. Or all line segments get a fill too or all the objects get a line too.

    To fix this, I have to go inside the group, select all the objects, change the fill and then select all the line segments and change the line color.

    A button to change the color of all line segments and the color…

  12. Easily move large number of swatches into a cc library

    Companies offer free downloads of their color libraries, typically over 1000 individual color swatches. Currently, each swatch has to be moved one-by-one into a library. It's extremely time consuming and tedious. I have talked to numerous customer service agents and there is no satisfactory work around.

    Create an easy way to transfer numerous color swatches at once into a library (which allows for use of the search bar feature). Using ccda>your work>upload does not work either.

  13. Ability to copy the name of a folder to other folders

    I name folders with the same name (ex-"PDF REVISED) to several different folders for several different jobs, but now I have to type out each name on each and every folder. Older versions of Illustrator had this function. Please bring it back.

  14. Turn off annoying "Catch up with what's new in illustrator" popup

    EVERY time I load Illustrator, the stupid, pointless, broken "Catch up with what's new in illustrator" popup appears. I have the options of:
    'Remind Later' which means this thing will appear the next time I load the app
    or
    'OK' which opens the 'Learn' panel, which contains...nothing.
    So both options are equally ****. Which is exactly what we'd expect from this dreadful application that people only use because it's the "industry standard" since Adobe illegally killed off FreeHand many years ago. When will Affinity Designer become the industry standard? Very soon, I hope.

  15. Realtime Preview makes rulers and objects disappear when moving

    In Illustrator 24.1 the real time editing feature makes guides or other objects that have no fill or stroke or an object with a white fill and no stroke disappear when moved.

  16. 3D rotation tool like XD and reedit primitive shapes

    3D rotation tool like XD please!
    And, the option to reedit a primitive shape (like a star for example). Changing the number of points at anytime.
    ...like Xd already does.
    It's sad that I've been asking for this feature since decades, and now, a new software can do it, instead of the "cutting edge" vectorial software...
    And, the most ridiculous, inside the same company.

  17. Posso bloccare o limitare la nuova funzionalità appena introdotto "Ruota vista"?

    Lavorando con penna su tavoletta wacom questa funzione di Rotazione Vista mi si è già attivata in modo assolutamente involontario almeno 5-6 volte e nel mio caso la trovo molto scomoda. Ho cercato tra le preferenze ma non trovo il modo di bloccare o limitare questa funzionalità. E' possibile introdurre nelle preferenze una spunta per abilitare o meno questa nuova funzione? Sarà anche una buona idea, non lo discuto, però nel mio caso la trovo fastidiosa.

  18. Allow "UNITS" in preferences, when once set, to not revert back unless changed by user.

    When you set your Preferences for "Units" it always reverts back to "Points" after you close and reopen the application. Its a very frustrating issue.

    *IMPORTANT NOTE.. Setting up WIDTH & HEIGHT for a document I can't think of any situation where one would use this setting. If so, it would be such a rare instance.. INCH, MM or PIXEL should always be the Primary Settings here.

  19. tabs and text options

    Tabulations should be embedded in the tex box and appear only when you press on the box and disappears when you click somewhere else. By default, it should also resize and follow the tex box on screen at all time without requiring you to click on the magnet to put it back where it belong.

    Also, the text options of Illustrator are lacking some very useful options that only exist in InDesign. I understand that Indesign is THE BIG SOFTWARE FOR TEXT, but honestly for smaller text oriented documents, I often use Illustrator because it's faster to operate. So, some…

  20. Tie a child shape to parent shape to keep it aligned to parent when resized

    Hi everyone,

    I posted this as a question in the Illustrator forum (here's the original thread https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/set-shapes-as-child-and-parent-objects-for-dynamic-box-designs/m-p/11688904?page=1#M256580) and was suggested to submit this as a feature request here.

    I design boxes in Illustrator for precise cutting in my Silhouette machine. The main problem I encounter with is when I make a box which its shapes are all perfectly aligned, but I then find that I need to tweak its interior size. When I'm doing so I have to re-align all the different pieces of the box shapes such as the spines, wings, etc, since there's no option to tie…
