  1. Make a more integrated way to report bugs

    Figma allows to report bugs directly from the web app.
    You go 'Help > Contact Us > Report a bug'. Then you fill out the form, directly in the app, provide steps, attach files... looks very similar to the approach Ai uses, but more streamlined, with no intermediate steps.
    Once it’s done, the dropdown is collapsed, and you are where you were at the moment.

    To report bugs in Illustrator you have to search for the way.
    First one should locate 'Help > Submit Bug/Feature Request'. This redirects you to the browser, to http://www.adobe.com/go/aiWishform/, which can redirect you (with…

  2. Display command assigned hotkeys in Discover panel’s search results

    When you search for a command in Discover panel, Illustrator gives you the results, but never actually tries to educate a user further with teaching him assigned keyboard shortcuts.
    Figma does it!

  3. AI Reference Guide - Downloadable

    I would love to see a return of a downloadable reference guide / user manual. I want the ability to read through it offline, occasionally print the page that's pertinent to my task, and have a book that is physically on my desk (not the desktop).. FYI, on this page (https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/faq.html), under Learning Illustrator > Where can I find the manual, the answer is: "You can find web and PDF versions of the Illustrator manual on the Illustrator Help page." I'm still looking for that PDF...

  4. Please print "User Guides" books again. You do not need to constantly update them:

    Physical "User Guide" books were far more quicker and easier to use to get answers to questions on how to use Adobe Illustrator. The book form could come out ever two years at most, including new updates, when it reaches a certain amount of pages, start a new volume. If you already have this online, or in a PDF format, please let me know where I can find it on your website and if you do have it online, does it have an "index" to look items up? Or just a search window? Thank you.

  6. Make the steps in the tutorial match the actual steps a person would take to achieve the finished product.

    The steps described in the tutorials do not match the actual steps taken in order to achieve the end product. My guess is this is to frustrate those who take advantage of the 7-day free trial into purchasing the monthly or yearly subscription. I think that stinks. How can a person judge whether or not they want to subscribe to the monthly or yearly plan if they can't even manage the tutorials? If your user menus have changed within the application, then the tutorials need to be updated to reflect this.

  8. Illustrator CC 2018 download support

    Hello, I used to use Illustrator CC 2018 on my work computer. It was having trouble opening AI and PDF files. I uninstalled the program and now I can't even install it back on the computer due to the program no longer being supported for download. 2018 was only 2 years ago. This is a huge problem for your users. Maybe have some kind of warning or do the right thing and offer support for programs older than 2 years.

  11. Have a panel that shows info and keyboard modifiers for the current tool

    All Adobe applications are quite complex beasts, and what all the tools do and particularly what holding different modifiers or keys do can be quite arcane.

    I imagine a panel you can have open on the side, and it will show information and the modifier options for the currently active tool.

    For instance for the Star tool, it can say what Shift, Option and Command keys do, and that you can press Arrow Up and Arrow Down to increase the number of points as you drag.

    Pro users can keep the panel closed, but it can really help new users…

  13. INTERACTIVE, HANDS-ON TUTORIALS IN ALL ADOBE APPLICATIONS

    Please create hands-on tutorials INSIDE the application. There used to be FUN AND INTERACTIVE Tutorials in ALL the Adobe application (such as make an icon).

    It really helped me learn illustrator quickly and effectively as I did the work. I was able to follow the instructions and actually remember them. It was a fantastic idea. what happened?
    Now I have to watch boring videos on the Adobe website that teach me nothing as they are not interactive and listening to the guy is so boring I hate it. Also switching from the website to the Adobe application to try the…

  14. Better Customer Care

    How about better customer follow up?

    I've had4 on-line tech support "episodes" over MANY, MANY hours, only to have the tech tell me nothing is wrong with Illustrator. I've asked to escalate the case with a follow up call from Senior Support TWICE (See attachments). We agreed on a call back time/day/number and I have not had any follow up from Adobe.

    Please get your act together! From what I've been reading on line, people's patience is running thin.

    Adobe! Are you listening?

  16. Have a clear path to turn off tool tips/ rich tool tips and tours

    I appreciate you want to make your software more accessible but these features ruin the pro-user experience add better control over libraries while your at it I should be able to disable libraries once and globally.

  19. Please create hands-on tutorials inside application same as in AfterEffects

    AfterEffects has hands-on tutorials inside the application where user can learn and practice side-by-side simultaneously. Very useful and effective to have. Please create the same resources for Illustrator.
