  1. 【寸法ツール】オプション設定内への要望

    Illustratorで簡易図面を描く事が多い為、Beta版で追加された「寸法ツール」はとても便利な機能となるはずなのですが、現状では重要な機能が足りておらず図面という用途では使用できません。

    【要望1】「先端位置」の選択が寸法ツールオプション内で出来るようにして下さい。

    現状では矢印のスタイルで「●(矢印21)」などを使用した際に、寸法補助線に対して線の芯に「●」の中心が配置されず、2本の寸法補助線の内側に収まる形で表示されてしまいます。

    【要望2】単位選択時に、「単位自体は表示させない」というチェック項目を付けてください。

    通常長さの寸法を入れる図面では、1つ1つの寸法線に単位は記載しません。数字だけを記載します。
    単位(㎜を使用するのかcmを使用するのかpxを使用するのか等)はアートボード全体で統一する為、1つ1つの寸法線に記載せず、1つのアートボードに対して「寸法の単位は㎜です」等を1カ所に記載する場合の方が多いです。
    ※ただし、直径(φ)・半径(R)・角度(°)の記号に関しては常時表示が必要です。

    【要望3】寸法線に対する数字の位置改善を希望します。

    寸法線の数字は縦線に対して線の左横、横線に対して線の上に配置されるのが望ましいです。改善、または選択可能にしてください。

    以上3点の機能改善を期待しています。

    As per the comment inside, an ability to hide units for dimension objects is introduced in AI Beta build 28.3.0.47.

    No more news so far on other parts of the request.

    Speaking of which — if possible, please try to report/request one entry per post, to better track all the feedback. Thanks you for your participation.

  2. Press Alt while creating a radius / diameter dimension to toggle these two mode on the fly

    Currently Dimension tool requires you to orient your cursor when creating a radius or diameter: inside of the clicked shape to create a diameter or outside to make it a radius.

    This is very nifty, sure.
    But:

    1. The tool hardly tells you about it when you draw. The only hint Ai give us is a blue bar (that we all tired of seeing, because everything in Ai now pops and shouts and distracts — I’m speaking about use, Text To Vector!) — I attach the screenshot of it for those who blinked and missed it.

    2. If I work with a…

  3. Press Shift to constrain the angle of a radius / diameter dimension

    Shift is universally used to constrain a drawn art to 0-45-90° angles when using a tool. This applies to lines, rectangles, other shapes, anything that can be clearly oriented.

    The Dimension tool breaks the paradigm — we can’t hold shift to constraint the angle of the drawn dimension line when creating radii or dimeters.

    Some standards require us to have these lines too use integer steps, like 15° or 30°... this is very hard to comply now.

    Please either make the tool to respect angles set in Preferences > Smart Guides, or make it a separate setting in the tool’s…

  4. Chained dimensions

    New Dimension tool is designed to be good-enough, but not be way too complex to setup and use.

    One of things we need to be a part of this 'good-enough' set of features it has should be a way to create consequential serialized dimensions, like the image attached demonstrates.

    To do that now, we’d have to drag each segment one-by-one, and snap the dimensions line to each other (which in the current build just doesn’t happen even!). This method is generates doubled lines instead of only one, and won’t allow us to move all the dimension lines at once if…

  5. Allow us to set up the default and stepped Dimension Line Offset for the Dimension tool

    When we Opt/Alt-click the object or just click a segment, Ai creates a dimension with some predefined distance between the object and the dimension line.
    We can’t control it (plus we can’t choose which sides to use for Opt/Alt mode anymore, unlike in early Betas).

    Also, we need to be able to hold a modifier while creating a dimension to constrain this offset to a set parameter, in a stepped manner, — something third-party plugins like BPT Pro and CADtools can do.

  6. Option to add dimensions to current layer

    I enjoy the new dimension tool but find it annoying that it creates a whole new separate layer. Maybe my workflow is unconventional, but it would be nice if the dimensions could just be added to my print instructions layer instead of a whole new layer just for the dimensions. I make a lot of diecuts and find myself still using old methods to create the dimension lines due to it always putting them on another layer.

  7. 复合路径建立的剪切蒙版

    复合路径建立的剪切蒙版,如何把蒙版分割的对象分离成单独的对象。如图中,我用矩形复合路径通过剪切蒙版把图片分割,但是现在是一个整体,我想让蒙版中分割的每个对象成为一个单独的对象,请问有什么好办法吗?比如类似于“扩展”的功能。
    当然,每个矩形可以单独建立剪切蒙版,但是会非常麻烦。

  8. Non-Destructive Path Trim

    It would save me incredible amounts of time if I could simply--and non-destructively--trim a path.

    Example:
    I create a character's arm using a tapered stroke. I then duplicate that tapered stroke so that it can function as a shirt sleeve.
    <Here is where the issue comes in...>
    There's not a good way to trim that duplicated stroke to function as a sleeve. I can add points and delete the stroke, but the width won't match anymore. I can create a clipping mask, but it's a pain and makes adjusting the characters pose needlessly laborious.

    Being able to trim the path…

  9. Add and option for Offset Path command and effect to respect the direction and starting point of the original path

    Offset Path makes width and length of a rectangle to swap

    When applying Offset Path after making a rectangle, the size of width and length of the rectangle are changed into each other and the rectangle gets rotated 270 degrees even though real shape is not changed.
    It seems bug need to be fixed.

    I attatched gif video and related link.

  10. Allow Shape Builder to close edited path, but keep the one below opened

    Hi there!
    So, the thing is that - when I have 2 intersecting open filled paths, I really want to remove the outside path of one path using Shape Builder tool. But I want the second path to stay open. and the first path to become closed.

    It may sound as a picky request. But I struggle with this issue everyday, like, 20+ times.

  11. Dimension Tool Ungroup to edit

    To be able to ungroup the dimension, created with the dimension tool so it can be edited. The only way I have found how to edit it is expand appearance. And that duplicates it a number of times so you need to delete the duplicates first.

  12. Graph to vector

    I'm requesting a feature I'm calling Graph to Vector. The idea would be to use the data in a graph and use the AI capabilities to generate a vector based on that data.

    For instance, if you had a graph representing how you spent your budget this past year with 5 different categories divided by percentages, you could take the colors used to represent the percentages and make a vector with those same colors in those same percentages. If 20% of the budget was represented by blue, then 20% of the vector could be blue.

    It would be a totally…

  13. Dimension tool improvements

    The dimension tool is a really helpful thing but some improvements would be appreciated.

    • As stated in other posts, please include the possibility to add user defined scalings, including decimal numbers like 1:1.5 and other ones, like 1:15.

    • According to ISO standards, the dimension text should sit above the lines, as viewed from the right. This would be a great option, because at this moment I don't use this tool regularly because of this.

    • When dimensions are too small, there should be an option to move the text away, either to the right or the left. Of course this can…

  14. 寸法ツールで描画したものを数値で編集

    寸法ツールで寸法線が描画できるのは非常に助かります!
    ソフトウェアの仕組み的に難しいと思いますが,寸法ツールで作成した寸法線の数値を編集できるようにし,3DCADソフトみたいに,その寸法編集が描画に反映されると図の作成に非常に便利になると思います。

  15. Type number of sides for polygon tool and star tool

    Currently to get a number of points on a star you have to type the [up key] or [down key] But often I know what number of points or sides I want on the polygon or star.

    I'd like the ability to type the number of sides/points.

    This could be achieved in a number of ways:
    - An option panel (could change it after the fact as long as it is selected as long as the points haven't been moved?)
    - hold and drag and type the number (say 3, 6, 9, etc)
    - double click on the polygon/star icon…

  18. Scale stroke width of multiple points

    I'd like to be able to scale the stroke width of multiple points at the same time, that way they match. That, or copy the stroke width value of one point and be able to paste it onto another.

  19. Make Smooth command to have the persist/sticky option

    I like the new Smooth command and I'm using it frequently enough that it would be nice to have a persist/sticky option for it instead of repeatedly going back to the Object menu.

    Also, I find that smoothing of 20% works well for a lot of shapes I'm editing but could the bar be enhanced with a few click-to bars to speed up this process (see attached). Maybe include this for the Simplify command as well.

  20. Allow Shaper Tool to create stars

    Shaper Tool allows to create live rectangles, ellipses, polygons in a freehand manner: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/building-new-shapes-using-shape.html

    Recently a new live shape got added into Illustrator — Star.
    But Shaper Tool won’t create one if you try to scribble it.
    Not sure how popular Shaper Tool is, but it should be able to do it anyway.

    Original idea by Monika Gause.
