  1. Make Animated zoom and Scrubby zoom as two different settings, as in Photoshop

    I love the GPU animated zoom when scrubbing/dragging the canvas.
    BUT no that it starts zooming automatically when the mouse is pressed down less than a second.
    It’s extremely annoying.

    In Photoshop when you deactivate the Animated Zoom you can still scrub/drag the GPU zoom.

    If you deactivate the Animated Zoom in Illustrator you can only do the classic stepped zoom, but not drag to have the animated zoom.

    Can you add the feature to make it so that you can disable the automatic Animated Zoom but still keep the animated scrub/drag zoom please, just like in Photoshop.

  2. "Effects" in menu when right clicking a selected object similar to InDesign.

    In InDesign I can select an object and then right click on a PC and the menu that appears shows shows "effects." Illustrator should do that as well.

  3. calque non imprimable

    Dans la version cc 2018, un calque non imprimable n'est plus différencié des autres par son non en italique, c'est très gênant et source d'erreur !
    IL serait bien de revenir sur ce petit détail, de grande importance dans les métiers du print. Par avance merci

  5. Type / Character

    Left alignment for all fonts and Characters. As we all know when you type in Illustrator the alignment is not curate with the alignment tool or even justified tools. It would be really nice if the AI team could fix this issue.

    See the attachment as an example. The only way to fix this is create outlines and then align.

  6. An option in type preferences to make fonts sized the same as the entered value.

    When I enter Helvetica and size it to 6 inches, the font produced is only 4 inches. When I type in a letter size, I want that size, Adobe seems to add part of the base line to the font size.

  8. New crop feature

    Would much prefer this feature to be similar to InDesign. Don't see me likely to use as is since it throws away unused data and embeds. Ability to NOT crop like that is one of the most useful features in InDesign. Masking although clumsy as a crop tool seems it will remain more flexible and useful.

  11. Variable Concept and Legacy Typefaces

    The new version of Minion and Myriad are EXCELLENT, and I am very excited by the possibilities that this opens up. But I work in Art production, and for consistency, I need access to the legacy version of these typefaces. May we have access to both?

  13. A back button on the Save & Export windows

    Often when saving/exporting a file from illustrator i'll move through the various steps; naming the file, choosing a location, adjusting the settings etc, then just as i go to hit 'ok' on the final window i'll realise i forgot to adjust a setting in an earlier window and so am forced to hit the cancel button and start the saving process again.
    Obviously its not a huge issue but it would save a little time and frustration if you could just click a back button rather than having to start over.

  14. New version change over

    New versions, NOT new name. Drop the year add-on. Just ask to overwrite existing app version. I use overflow to start up my apps, not the Adobe menu. By adding a new app name AND deleting the old one you BREAK ALL my links to ***** up my workflow.

    Also, import to the new version ALL MY TEMPLATES. You created significant work for me to go an find the old templates and then get them into 2018

    Most importantly: Send some of your engineers out to see people use your products in the real world that is NOT web design…

  15. Search window in all Adobe programs

    Add a window where I can search a feature, window, or command that exists in the program.
    It's hard to remember where everything is located.

  17. pencil tool selection behaviour adjusmtent

    A detail that im missing from the legacy pencil tool.

    Its a missing detail in the option keep to path selected or deselected after being drawn.

    When this option is unchecked the object is deselected.
    If the path is selected again to be drawn upon to adjust the shape. It deselects it again.
    Now thats all logical and according to what the option says its supposed to do.

    BUT

    The legacy pencil tool before its rewrite it worked almost like that but not quite the same, and it was great.

    So you had the option to have the path deseletced after…

  18. In the new properties, have the overflow menu at the top opposite the panel name.

    Feels odd seeing the overflow menu at the bottom, where it almost looks like it's part of the panel above it. Also, by placing it at the top of each panel, this could have space.

  20. Please make the slicing more like Fireworks with naming and sizes individual for each artboad (like stages/pages in Fireworks).

    Currently I can not export bitmap icons with the the right names and in the right sizes as in Fireworks including padding.
    And when I go to another document for a different platform (an app), I have to include the different sizes again.
    Also I have no preview like in legacy before I overwrite the old picts.
    Making graphics for mobile devices, your presets are based on the lowest resolution (@1). Some user control please...
    Bring back Fireworks...
