  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…

  3. Convert fractions to decimals within the program, not just the new file dialogue box: 116-7/8" to 116.875 in.

    We work with various large format sizes given with fractions, but the programs run off decimals. The New file dialogue box will convert them, so why can't this be added to the number fields for artboard and object sizes? Similar to how we can use the "/" to divide by a number when working at 1/4 scale or 1/2 scale.

  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。

  6. 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!

  7. Add some modern UI elements, like Pie-Menus for example

    Illustrator could really use some modern UI design elements, like Pie menus for example.

    Some, even basic, features are so frustrating to use as the only way to access them is via buttons in panels. With 4K monitor, this leads to a huge amount of travelling with the mouse.

    Like, if you want to change the Width of the stroke, you have to do it from the panel. It should be able to do it, for example by pressing a hotkey, dragging on the screen.

    And things like Align “tools” should really be in Pie menus, so you wouldn't need…

  8. Add Preview tick to Average dialogue

    Average dialog can be still confusing, and I personally often use a wrong option when I average points.

    For some reason when I choose 'horizontal', I often imagine points to share the same X value, 'occupy the same position horizontally'... Same applies to Y. Sure, this is not what Ai mean, in fact it’s 'stick to the horizontal axis'.

    I see both views as valid, and can’t learn it solid enough to never make mistakes. However, Ai can learn and add the sticky Preview checkmark, so I and others were able to see the result before they hit OK.

    Ai…

  9. Allow us to choose the order of controls in Control panel

    We can choose which items we want to see in Control panel, but we can’t reorganize it. Unlike InDesign’s Control, which is tightly assembled in several rows and shows more controls , Ai’s one is less strict, it’s just a row.
    And since the width of the screen is often limited, some controls get compacted or removed. I’d like to control it.

  10. Please improve visibility of scroll bar handles (sliders) in dark mode!

    In dark mode, the handles / sliders on the scrollbar are very difficult, if not impossibel to spot, which inhibts my workflow considerably. Please, make the slider a lighter color or give us an option to change the color of the slider in preference.

  11. Adapt Dark Title bar in dark mode in Illustrator for Windows

    The existing title bar is white, enabling dark title bar will help us get a more unified UI.

    The Technology Path

    Since Windows 10 1809, Microsoft has provided an API for modifying only the color of the window title bar.

    The method reference is
    stackoverflow.com/questions/39261826/change-the-color-of-the-title-bar-caption-of-a-win32-applicatio...

    Documentation see
    docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/dwmapi/ne-dwmapi-dwmwindowattribute 3

    At the same time, this API does not affect compatibility with older versions, and on Windows 7 or earlier versions of Windows, the API will not work and will not cause strange errors.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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?

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. Show global swatch triangle marker in Fill Stroke Control when a global swatch is selected

    Global swatches are marked with a white triangle in the bottom right corner of the swatch. Book colors also have a black dot in this triangle.

    These triangles are displayed everywhere swatches are used in UI: Appearance, Properties, Control... But for some reason they are omitted in tool panels, in Fill Stroke controls (and also Gradient).

    I personally see no reason why. Sure users would benefit from knowing exactly if a color is global or not when they see the color chip anywhere.

  19. In Appearance calling alternative color UI is done with Shift and not obvious Alt

    For some we have to hold Shift while clicking a fill/stroke square in Appearance panel to call the alternative pseudo-panel.
    Alt = Alternative. Sure, Macs have Option instead, but it also fits.

    Also, the hint has the 'Shift' and 'Color' written in lower-case: 'Hold shift key to bring up alternate color UI'... and I have no idea why 'alternate', why no alternation happens? Who wrote this hint?

  20. Drag tools from one toolbar to another

    When I setup tool panels for various reasons), I can’t just drag it between tool panels.
    The only way to do it now is to remove the tool first in the first toolbox and add it again in the second one. Each panel has its own Edit mode and tools get dragged only within an edited panel :(
