  1. Stroked Object Transform Bug Constrain Error Adobe Illustrator CC 2017-2018

    When using the transform panel to resize an object or multiple objects, it goes without saying if you select constrain, there should be confidence it will scale respectively. A circle remains a circle, a square a square, a 16:9 Graphic stays 16:9 etc. etc.

    Unfortunately I have noticed a very concerning bug where if one of the objects has a stroke, it will not transform constrained. I noticed because the object I grabbed had a perfect circle, that seems maybe 5% horizontally compressed afterward.

    I have done this screencast to show the bug does not occur on non-stroked objects- only…

  2. Honestly I would rather an entire year go by with now new features if

    Honestly, I would rather an entire year go by with no new features. Instead, I would rather all of Adobe's efforts go into making the applications run faster. I am running a brand new, completely decked out MacBook pro, and am doing some UX design in illustrator. It is getting really frustrating when I try to nudge an item with the left arrow button and have to wait a couple seconds for it to actually happen.

  3. New Artboard Automatically Generated - No Preview Available

    When a new artboard is generated, it is now automatically placed to the right of the active artboard. Previously, generating a new artboard would show a preview and allow me to place wherever I wanted.

    I work frequently with nested artboards, and when I want to create a new artboard within the active artboard, I am taken away from the area I am viewing, which is frustrating. I now have to zoom out, turn off 'move with artboard' so that no art is interrupted, move the new artboard to the area I originally wanted it to be in, zoom in…

  4. Lock or unlock Navigator View from General View. Two Separate Views

    During my work I need to have two different views of my artboard or canvas. Now the Navigator panel and General view showing me the same view.

    Adding an option that will allow to have two separate view can enhance my workflow. That can be achieved if we will have an option to lock or unlock Navigator View from General View.

    There is no need to use Navigator panel for this.

    Just call Window > New Window, untab it (if you use tabs), resize and reposition it the way you like, and work within the main window — all the changes you make are going to be rendered in real time in the second one.

  5. Thanks a fkng Lot Adobe.

    I am unable to save my illustrator files. They all appear blank. I am on a deadline & Adobe is literally screwing with my income. WTF?

  7. Improve your UX/program behaviour for god's sake

    Illustrator is the worst program I have ever work with, an that's an opinion I share with a lot of designers. Nothing is logic, everything is a nonsense and I lost A LOT of time trying to make so simple things. Photoshop is awesome, after effects is awesome, don't know what happen to you with Illustrator, but please make a review of how it works and fix it

  8. Unify Fill tool + gradient tool under properties(appearance)

    Now we have 3 "ways" or windows to pick color from which is confusing. Unify everything under same roof like in other design apps.

    Goodmorning, I refer to the following issue: https://forums.adobe.com/message/9978412#9978412

    I am working daily on a professional basis with Adobe Illustrator. I find it very disturbing that this issue isn't solved yet. I hope you can fix it.

  13. Expanding scatter brush without boxes

    When I create a scatter brush of random circles and then expand the appearance, it creates outlines of all the circles, but also adds in a box around each circle. When I 'Unite' the shapes the boxes are included and there are too many to have to go in and delete the boxes manually.

  15. The ability to save an appearance of a selected object.

    The ability to save an appearance of a selected object to apply to other objects. Much like the copy and paste layer style in Photoshop.

  16. Improve User-Friendliness

    I would enjoy Illustrator a lot more if I had the option to make the UI that of Photoshop's. It allows me to easily and quickly manipulate the layers, unlike in Illustrator. In illustrator, if I wish to change the opacity of a layer and solely a layer, I've found it to be impossible, since the opacity slider changes the opacity of my brush tool for future use, even if I manipulate its opacity back to 100%. Why is the desktop version of Illustrator so much less user-friendly than the free iOS and Android application versions? The only reason that…

  17. Add Anchor Tool: Make it easier to add multiple anchors

    When doing a complex drawing, I often start with a simple shape and then use the "Add Anchor Point" tool to add points to a line, near where I plan to place them (by clicking and dragging). For instance I'm drawing a partially constructed "Death Star" for a T-shirt I'm designing. I started with a circle, and on one side of the circle, I'm creating the (cartoonish) effect of a "ragged edge". This requires a sh*t load of anchor points, which have to be created by clicking on the perimeter of the founding circle, then moving slightly along the line,…

  20. Match display sizes across CC apps already. Please.

    1. Open AI
    2. Create new A4 document
    3. Display @ 100%
    4. Open ID
    5. Create new A4 document
    6. Display @ 100%
    7. View AI and ID windows side by side
    8. Compare sizes.

    FFS! Please make apps sync real 100% size rendering of documents already. It‘s fundamental for graphic professionals to be able to view documents in real size. Why is this still not fixed.

    100% is 100% irrespective of display resolution. Come on, it‘s 2017. Nobody is working on 72 dpi anymore. We all have 5K retina displays.

    Please try to keep up, Adobe.

    Ai now displays A4 as a proper 210×297mm (if Display Print Size at 100% Zoom option is set in Preferences) — you can check it with a ruler next to a screen.

    This messes up 100% for Web-based documents, unfortunately, and this is yet have to be resolved.

    InDesign, however, displays it a bit smaller… (this should be asked from InDesign developers).
    Photoshop does it almost perfect when you choose View > Actual Size.
