  1. Option to disable Rotate View

    I think the new rotate view update is great if you want to work from multiple angles. But I’ve found it extremely difficult to work while using my trackpad because when ever I zoom in on my projects rotate view is automatically triggered and I have to keep going back to reset my view. As someone who works on multiple art boards at once this happens in a smaller span of time which tends to become annoying after a while.

  2. Fix behavior of numerical fields

    There are standards used throughout computing that inform how field values work and Illustrator screws this up terribly.

    When a field is not in focus, clicking on the field or the field value brings the field and value into focus. This automatically should select the entire user-editable contents of the field value. This allows you to click and type a new value to change the value.

    Illustrator instead changes the cursor to an insertion point when hovering over a field value. Clicking in the field value, places the insertion point at the location the pointer was at. If you then…

  4. フォント選択、フォントリストの「そのフォントの場所」からスタートしてほしい

    フォントを選んでいるとき、常にリストの最初に戻るのをやめてほしいです。
    「新ゴM」を選んでいたら「新ゴM」から始まってほしいです(以前のverのように)。
    いろんなフォントを選んでいるときに毎回戻ってしまって、とても非効率です。
    ぜひ改善してください。
    よろしくお願いいたします。

    yas 様

    リクエストの投稿をありがとうございます。

    ご存知の機能かとは思いますが、現在のバージョンでは、「フォントの整理とフィルター」という機能が備わっています。

    こちらをお使いいただくことで、幾分快適にご利用いただけるのではないかと思います。

  5. Nix the Stupid Blue Share Button

    Get rid of the stupid giant blue "Share" button in the toolbar. It's very distracting because it looks like I constantly have a notification. And I will never use it. We've been all through this with Acrobat already!

  6. Highlight last used field

    Best feature in Indesign is to jump back to last used field using a keyboard shortcut. I think this should definitely be part of every application, including Adobe Illustrator. That is, similar to Indesign:

    Activate last-used field in panel --- Default: Opt+Cmd+`

    This should be a great addition to all the Adobe Applications.

  7. Add option to change stroke/font units faster

    For my workflow I constantly need to change the unit of strokes between points and inches. It would be nice to add a way to change them in 1 click rather than going Edit > Preferences > Units every single time. Not a huge change but would be quite convenient and probably fairly easy to implement. We can currently set the unit of the whole document in a window, but not things like stroke/font. Could just add the option to the existing stroke window like the attached picture.

  8. Move overset text icon further away from bottom corner handle

    When working with threaded text in Illustrator it is difficult to select the overset text icon since it is so close to the bottom right handle of the bounding box. If I am zoomed out I always end up accidentally clicking the bottom right handle instead of the overset text icon.

    If it was moved halfway between the middle right handle and the bottom right it would be easier to click on from a distance. I made an image showing how it is now and how I think it would work better. Thank you!

  9. Bullets & Numbering in Shortcuts

    The menu items for bullets and numbering are not in "Edit shortcuts" At least not in the German version of Illustrator.

    Could they perhaps be made available for shortcuts?

  10. Customizable splash screen

    Adobe marketing team decides what to display as splash screens. Sometimes the choice is great, and sometimes is not, much more often, to some of us.

    And since the Illustrator splash screen is what we see often, and it obviously influence our thought and mood, we’d like to have options to customize it.

    We can access the image ourselves, all of them are stored along with other version for different resolution screens at
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 2022\Support Files\Contents\Windows\aiccsplash.png (on Windows)
    and packed in the application in Contents\Resources\ (on Macs),
    but this feels like a hack.

    What if we…

  11. Installing old versions of Illustrator!

    My Illustrator 2020 / 24.6 was crashing on startup, so i decided to delete and reinstall it.
    Now i can't find on Creative Cloud the same version (2020/ 24.6) to download.
    I've been informed by customer service that Adobe no longer provides previous versions of the apps. I never received any information that the company would no longer provide the older versions and now I can't reinstall the version I had on my computer. My OS doesn't support updates anymore so I can't install the latest versions of Illustrator. Customer service only provides base version 24.0 for offline installation and…

  13. Curvature Combs and Tunni lines

    Two ideas, both aimed at creating smoother curves:

    1. curvature combs:
      an additional visual aid that could be enabled/disabled via hotkey or option on a panel that assists the artist/user in evaluating whether a curve is continuously smooth, or whether it needs adjustment. See this blog for a quick coded breakdown:
      https://observablehq.com/@jrus/curvature-comb
      see this webpage for more traditional curvature combs with lines perpendicular to the curved path, in proportion to the path's curvature at that point:
      http://www.bluesmith.co.uk/evaluateComb.htm

    2. Tunni lines:
      an additional assist/handle for helping a user more precisely adjust a curve (or multiple curves), both symmetrically and asymmetrically.
      See this example…

  14. "線幅を拡大縮小"にショートカットが欲しい / Scale Stroke & Effects Hotkey

    線幅を拡大縮小にショートカットが欲しい。又は、キーボードショートカットで作成できるようにして欲しい。
    デザインの作業で、同じドキュメント内でも線幅を拡大縮小するかはオブジェクトによって違い、かなり頻繁に、そしてスピーディな作業の中で必要になります。
    そのため環境設定か、拡大縮小ツールをダブルクリックし、チェックボックスにチェックを入れたり外したり、という作業が非常に煩わしいです。

  15. Collapse panels menu item/keyboard shortcut

    The ability to set a keyboard shortcut to collapse all panels would be really helpful and slick. I find myself leaving them open for expedience only to find the open panel is in the way, visually, later on. For those who set up their workspace differently they can just ignore it or disable the keyboard shortcut.

  16. Remove round corner minimum angle limit

    Please allow for round corner angle threshold control via Preferences. The very common issue I have all the time is being unable to round corners with angles smaller than some hardcoded threshold.

    Not a big issue rally on simple trivial geometry where you can workaround by manually constructing the round corner. But in my field I have to constantly deal with large complex paths needing all corners rounded regardless of angle.

    I always have to resort to exporting geometry to SVG, rounding corners in Corel or Affinity which don't have the said minimal angle limit, import back to AI and…

  17. Show only existing separations

    In the palette separation preview, display only colors that are actually present in the image. If the image does not contain process colors (CMYK) or one of them, it will be excluded from the list.

  18. Delete Hidden Layers command - Innapropriately named?

    The latest version of Illustrator (25.3) introduces a new command in the flyout menu of the Layers palette. It is called Delete Hidden Layers.

    It's a useful command, but it also deletes hidden groups and objects inside visible layers and visible groups as well. These are not what most Illustrator users would describe as 'Layers' and thus the naming of this command may cause a lot of trouble.

    There should perhaps be at least two or three different commands: Delete Hidden Layers and Delete Hidden Objects and Delete All Hidden Items.

  19. workspace layout seems to constantly change over time. Keep it more fluent and natural

    I can arrange workspaces, rearrange them, add new ones, remove some and so on and on and on. My issue is that somehow, the tools and panels I want are never at hand when I need them.

    It's so subtle that I can't put my finger on the exact issue. But it's suddenly occured to me that as far as I can remember, I'm always rearranging the workspace layout in Illustrator to get the tools I need, but I don't have this issue in other Adobe apps. I've been using Illustrator as my core graphic design tool for around 8/9…

  20. Shortcut "Make New Artboard"

    I need a shortcut to make a new artboard.
    same syntax as a new layer with Ctrl + L but for artboards

    There is no way to assign any kind of shortcut to this SO basic command, nor via action, shortcut editor, or script. And I'm aware of Shift + O

    thanks
