  1. The ability to save a direct selection

    Sometimes geometric transformations require a complex selection of certain vertices on one or more objects. Losing the selection because of a misclick is so common and frustrating... One should be able to save current selection to recall it if lost. This little buffer can be really very temporary, i.e. stop working if object topology has changed in the meantime. It would already prevent frustration on many occasions.

    Illustrator allows to save, load and managed partial and full  selection with Select > Save / Edit Selection commands.

    UI is archaic, but it does the thing you want.

    Please leave any comments regarding this feature here.


    As for having a selection operation as an undoable operation — there is a separate feature request for this you can vote for: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/34934953

  2. This is a bug report on unresponsive behavior on the Macintosh OS

    Illustrator 2018 is unresponsive and erratic to mouse and keyboard input on Apple OS 10.13.6.

    This is exactly what Illustrator allows already.

    In facet, it allows two ways you can toggle, using the 'looking glass' icon at the left of the Font Family input: 'Search Entire Font Name' or 'Search First Word only'.

    Perhaps it got changed for you?

    Anyway — if it does not behave like it should — please log a separate bug request about this in the proper forums’ section.

  7. Make the brush and pencil tools respond to color changes. Place a color selection box in Paintbrush Tool Options

    I cannot change colors on Brush and Pencil tools. I researched many Q & A threads and none of the answers solved the problem. Fill new brush strokes does not work for the brush or pencil tools.

  8. Asset Export - Filename field is too short

    I need the filename field to be longer in the Asset Export panel. There's not enough room for clientnamedepartmentnameclr_logo naming schemes.

  10. Enchanced anti-aliasing

    Illustrator's anti-aliasing is very dirty and very-very dark. I personally work mostly on icons in Illustrator and the reason I avoid the application for say simple UI is that the result will be dirty. If I import my illustration from AI to Photoshop or Adobe XD - the whole layout will become much cleaner, lighter on preview and on export from there.

    Recently I've encountered a situation when my colleague had a small circle, and for this circle, the stroke's been defined as black and the fill was transparent. In Illustrator it looked like the circle hadn't a hole in…

  13. Display Tablet : Wacom CINTIQ 22HD VS XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro REVIEW

    Hello everyone, I'm an Illustrator user, I usually use the Adobe Illustrator, Evernote, Dropbox software and tasks. Mostly Illustrator on my display drawing tablet.

    CINTIQ 22HD

    I know there are a lot of people who are looking for Cintiq alternatives as Wacom's tablets are expensive. I had been wanting a Cintiq for years but never really thought they were worth all that money. However, after I had a chance of using Cintiq 22HD for a few days, I came to realize that drawing on a display tablet is far quicker and more enjoyable than doing it on non-display tablets.
    SO,…

  14. Cannot key in units like cm, mm, etc.

    Hi,
    In the most recent update that I have, 22.1, the ability to resize an artboard by typing in a number and its unit has been removed. Was this intended? Please restore this function as it makes working with various units more convenient. Thank you.

  16. Absolute Optical Kerning when scaling....

    I understand show optical kerning works and that smaller type will have relatively more space between glyphs than larger type. However, this results in a problem for those of us who, due to Illustrator's canvas limit (See 227, #downwith227), must design at scales smaller than 1:1.

    For that reason, I would like to request that there be an optional type of optical kerning implemented which does not add extra kerning as font size decreases.

  17. Ability to Set Scratch Disks on Startup

    Our users need to change their Scratch Disk settings from the default Startup to a different drive in order for Illustrator to work correctly in our environment. This is more problematic now since our Mac Pro's have small SSDs. The fact that users have to launch Illustrator, navigate to preferences, change this setting, and then relaunch Illustrator before the Scratch Disk settings take effect is irritating. Unfortunately, in our environment this setting does not stick, so every time our users log in to a different computer they need to make this change.

    Please add a feature, similar to Photoshop's OPT…

  18. Allow Save Options to be Skipped

    Personally, I'd like to skip the extra dialog after I name my file and click the Save button.

    If I actually want to alter any of the settings, I'd prefer to do it by actively clicking an [Format] Options button in the Save dialog (opening a new dialog) rather than after already naming the file and clicking the Save button.

    Sometimes performance is slow enough that it takes some time for the next dialog to even show, which breaks my workflow as I move on to other tasks in other apps, thinking my file is safely saved already (I did…

  19. Allow text on linked files to be editable (just as it happens in embed)

    When I embed a PSD file into Illustrator, it preserves the layers and also the text boxes, allowing me to edit the text. However, if the file is liked, Illustrator converts all text to pixels, which can cause various problems when printing. It would be great to be able to keep the text as vectors, even if not editable. But rasterizing all text just because the file is liked is a big problem.

  20. Correctly include vector objects from previous Illustrator version files

    A customer file created in CC 15 MAC and (according to tech support) using a CS/3 template does not open properly in CC 18. a group of objects appear as a missing linked file rather that the actual objects. However CS/5 opens the file and placed the vector objects inside a clip mask properly, allowing access to the vector path information. Why would CC18 not have the same capability? Worse, why would it confuse the issue stating a linked file is missing? The vector info is obviously in the file (since it appears in CS/3 and CS/5, get that info…
