  1. User defined scales for Dimension tool

    Repost from general discussions:
    I'm delighted to see the addition of the dimensioning tool, but I'm not wild about the fixed choice of scaling ratios. The option to set one's own scales would be great.

    Failing that, a 1:12 scale seems like a glaring omission for those of us still using inches and feet.

    Am I missing something?

    It is possible now to set up a custom scale in Ai Beta 28.4.0.2.

    In Dimension Tool Options dialog open the Scale dropdown and choose custom to get the Custom Scale dialog.

    It works for decimal scales only, like 1:12 or 1:15, but not for Imperial scales like 1/16"

    Please try it and comment back.

  2. The Dimension Tool needs to have live updates

    I like the new dimension tool, but it's not very helpful unless it updates the displayed dimensions when the size of the dimensioned object is changed. It should stay attached to the selected points when the size of the shape is changed as well.

    The Beta 28.4.0.7 now create live dimension objects, that track and follow the changes to the measured objects: resizing, rotating, moving...


    As for now, moving only dimension breaks the link and expands the dimension (hopefully will change, and break the link only).

    Moving an object with its related dimension currently expand the dimension as well (hopefully won’t do it either).


    Please test the change and share feedback — it helps a lot!

  3. 鼠标滚轮缩放画布

    希望在鼠标滚轮缩放画布时,以鼠标的指向为中心点缩放。目前虽然可以通过“ctrl +”来实现,但是如果增加鼠标滚轮功能会更加方便。

  4. use of Info panel for graph elements

    When working with a graph, use the Group Select tool to select one element of the graph. In earlier versions (prior to ~2016 or 2017?), the Info panel displayed the size/position of that element. Why was that feature DROPPED? Please reinstate that bit of code--there is no other way to determine the size of any element (except to copy and paste it, then delete it).
    Better yet, if the Transform panel was active for a graph element, it would make it so much easier to control the size of each path. (I'm looking at you, tick marks, which are seemingly…

  5. Clear guides should delete guides in transparency masks too

    Just took me ages to work out why i couldnt remove guides from a file and discovered they existed only within various transparency masks and had to go through each mask individually to remove them. Clear guides feature should remove those too, surely?!

  6. Option to allow to group a single group, making it nested

    Sometimes we need to group a group. For example, for complex appearances, to nest graphics styles.
    But Illustrator does not allow that — and in most cases it’s a proper cautious behavior. But perhaps it can be toggled somewhere?

    So far we have two workarounds for this.
    1. Create a dummy object, select both it and the group you want to 'wrap', group them together, delete the dummy object.
    2. Use a script 'Add Group Anyway': https://onthehead.com/ais/group003/ (it also can pull children form different groups into a new one — which is a thing we want too).

  7. When rotating an object, add a hotkey that allows the user to explicitly enter the rotation angle.

    When rotating an object, I can see the rotation angle and I have to struggle to get the rotation to align perfectly to an exact angle. While I can do this with the rotate tool, it's frustrating to see the rotation almost where I need it, but having to undo, select the rotation tool, set the angle, etc.

    If there was a hotkey while rotating, like say, Ctrl... a small text box would appear in place of the angle and I could just manually enter the angle with the previous rotation angle as a default, I think that could save…

  8. Restore pressing Ctrl + Alt + Enter in Transform’s Width and Height fields to constrain proportions AND copy at the same time

    I thought I could explain this feature only with a video. Even though it was difficult and I took risks, I was able to prepare it by finding a portable CS 11 version.

    I want this feature back for Transform Palette. Because they destroyed it or forgot about it or no one knows about it.

  9. Firefly Text to Image and Text Effects inside illustrator

    Text to Vector is Awesome, will be nice to have Firefly Text to Image and Text Effects directly in illustrator, so we can preview our generations with other compositing assets in canvas.

    Maybe a Firefly Panel, where we can choose what we want to generate, vector, image, or text effect.

    It would be extremely helpful if there were a text-markup tool in Share for review just like in indesign.

  13. Line Chart - make it possible to start line on value axis

    I do often need the line to start on the value axis.
    At this moment, I can't do this using the Chart-Tool, effectivly making these type of charts impossible to create without messing up the Chart by manually changing the axis.

  14. Illustrator 26.5.2 The new Lock object tool is terrible

    Go back to previous old version of the object lock. I do not like the gray border of a locked object. I cannot click through the object on other objects around or near the locked object. The OLD way of locking objects was better. It just sat there visually and did not affect neighboring objects.

  15. Issue transferring dwg file to Temp folder

    Is there any possibility in Ai, when we export or run the script on the Ai file and we get only dwg file without that png (bitmap image) so that we can add only dwg file in Temp folder and it will get convert into .svg file.

  18. Improve pattern editing mode's slow performance

    Pattern editing mode is notoriously slow. Using complex artwork and textures inside patterns causes pattern mode to hesitate when simply moving objects (even when displaying fewer copies). Because brushes are expanded in Pattern mode, textural brushes can't be used to create patterns without a lot of spinning and crashing. The feature hasn't been improved since it was released in CS6. The new Repeats feature doesn't make fill swatches, unfortunately, so it does not replace Pattern mode. If only we could create repeating art on the artboard and make fill swatches from it without the constraints of pattern mode.

  19. Share and Review for Illustrator (email notification designation)

    Hi Adobe team,

    I Co-own and Creative Direct at a small design agency of about 12 people. Myself and my design team are loving the Share and Review feature as it is saving us so much time in our presentation prep on client work. There is one thing though that would make our lives even better (and the life of our project manager). We would love for there to be a feature where you can designate where the notification emails go to when comments are made. Currently it goes to the person who generated the link (usually a designer), or…

  20. Make it flexible to stylize graphs and edit data without messing the graph design

    Please allow it that we can stylize the graphs without ungrouping it so we can still edit the data anytime as needed. Creating graphs (data and style) should be efficient. As of the latest version, every time we edit graph data, the horizontal lines (x-axis) get messed up. (Please see attachment with file name: graph with style...)

    And there is this wide space on the start (left of the graph). Not sure why the graph tool has this wide space from the left side every time it generates the graph. (Please see attachment with file name: graph wide space...)
