  1. Remove Text to Vector from Properties panel

    Would like an option to remove it from Properties panel as it sometimes opens on its own after I have closed it and it impedes my workflow having to close it again because it obstructs actually useful things Properties panel.

  2. 【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.

  3. 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.

  4. Make Illustrator inform users about the live shape nature of the path used for area type and provide associated controls for it

    Currently, when we use a live rectangle as a path for an area type, it secretly stays live shape inside, and it allows us to scale the object with the round corners honored. If we round corners for a rectangle-looking path (not live shape), corners will get stretched.

    However, there is no way to distinguish these two cases with UI, or to convert a rectangular path used for the area type into live rectangle shape, or to have shape-sepcific controls.

    Please refer to the discussion in comments for the details.

    This request is based on the original declined bug report…

  6. Disable all "Generative AI" marketing popups

    Whenever I use Illustrator lately, I'll be in the middle of editing a document when this annoying feature popup appears. Literally right in the middle of me trying to get work done.

    Please give me a way to disable this altogether. I have no interest in this feature. Please stop pushing it to me.

  7. Bei einem Update vom Illustrator sollten bereits in den Presets vorhandene Skripte übernommen werden.

    Nach einem Versionsupdate müssen bereits verwendete eigene Skripte manuell in den Presets-Ordner kopiert werden. Dies sollte beim Update automatisch geschehen.

  8. OKHSL Color Model Support - Better than HSL

    The HSL color model has a lot of issues with it and has been improved upon with OKHSL.

    See this article—once you see the OKHSL color wheel, you will be sold instantly! Looks way better.

    See attached images of HSL vs OKHSL.

    Full article: https://bottosson.github.io/posts/colorpicker/

    Would be great to have this in Illustrator.

  9. Ability to save presets for each tab in 3D and Materials panels: Object, Materials, Lighting

    Illustrator allows us to save appearance attributes as graphic styles, but recently we got the complex 3D and Materials effect that has a lot of different parameters in it.

    The current system allows us to save all of these parameters altogether: extrusion depth, rotation angles, material settings, applied lights...
    But if we need to save ONE of these — that is, for example, only the material, or only the lights, or only extrusion and rotations, — Ai does not provide means to do it.

    Please introduce a system to save presets per each tab the 3D and Materials panel has:…

  10. Please add an ability to align points using the Align panel

    Please add an ability to align individual points using the Align panel. This has always been an option, but it seems to have been removed.

  11. 「テキストからベクター生成」にレイヤーオブションを加えてください

    背景と上に乗るキャラクター等をレイヤー分けできるような仕組みを追加してください。
    たとえば、

    「下のレイヤー:波の穏やかな白い砂浜のビーチ、上のレイヤー:じゃれ合う2匹の子犬」

    というようにプロンプトに記述したレイヤー構成に従って生成されるようになると格段に使い勝手が良くなると思います。

  12. 3D shadows color and opacity change

    3D effects give only a black shadow that makes 3D object's color dirty, greyish. And it looks like 90's 3D effect. Possibility to change the shadow color? Or the shadow color bases on the object's colors and thus makes the diffuse.

  13. Add an option to allow to snap to and by linked art, a similar one to Snap to Glyphs option

    Could it be possible to get some help to align to a graphic imported? Something like "Snap to Glyph"?
    It could help a lot to work precisely, without "embedding" the placed artwork...

  15. Display artboard captions when exporting artboards

    Every time when i have multiple artboards and hit Save As, Ii don't know exactly which artboards i want to include, cause i don't know the specific number.
    So i go back out of the save as dialog, pick the Artboard Tool and save again, now able to see which numbers i want to include. I would be less time consumption if it would show the numbers of the artboards always no matter which tool is selected, when there is a save as or export dialog started.

  16. Gap Tool and Live Distribute like InDesign has, with improvements

    InDesign has Gap Tool — https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/aligning-distributing-objects.html#align_objects_using_the_gap_tool

    Also it has Live Distribute —helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/aligning-distributing-objects.html#distributeobjectsusinglivedistribute

    These allow us to control a gap’s size between chosen pair of elements (quoted):

    —Drag to move the gap and resize all objects aligned along the gap.

    — Shift-drag to move the gap between only the two nearest objects.

    — Ctrl-drag (Windows) or Command-drag (Mac OS) to resize the gap instead of moving it. Adding the Shift key resizes the gap between only the two nearest objects.

    — Alt-drag (Windows) or Option-drag (Mac OS) to move the gap and objects in the same direction.…

  17. One Standard Between Adobe Application Tools

    In PS I can use the several tool and click and holding Shift key and click on a point on the other end. This will either erase or paint a corresponding line at the other end.

    Is this not a feature inside AI?

    Appears in AI I have to hold the left mouse key and drag to get the eraser to draw a straight line..

  19. Make scrollbars higher contrast or allow customizable colors for them

    The gray on gray scheme of the slider and handle in the scrollbars is extremely difficult to work with. Higher contrast is needed or provide the ability to customize the slider color. This is an accessibility issue for older or visually impaired users!

  20. Toggle Artwork Visibility Outside of Artboard

    The function of the w key in InDesign switches between preview and normal view. Why doesn't Illustrator have this functionality? It would be so useful as I usually prefer to use Illustrator when I'm initially laying things out for a design project. I've seen multiple requests for this functionality in the forums. Please please please add this!
