  1. Expand searched PMS colors

    In window swatch pallet for color books, when searching for a specific color, it would be great if you could see the colors next to your HIGHLIGHTED searched color rather than the color being isolated. Ex. search PMS 156 > jump to that color in the list, highlight it, but still be able to view the colors around it. SEE BELOW EXAMPLES.

  2. Masked object within a masked object?

    Is it possible to put a masked object (with clip) inside another mask? When I do this - the masked object within gets its clipped path released.

  3. New artboard adjustable spacing

    When the New Artboard button in Control panel is clicked, an artboard is created next to the current one. The spacing between these is not tweakable.

    I work in metric units, on 10×10 millimeters grid. The space between artboards’ edges is 7.056mm. Yeah, I know, it’s 20 points, sure, but why should I care about points when units are millimeters? Why can’t I use a value that makes sense to me?

    Furthermore, it is dangerously close to 7 and looks like an integer until you check it.

    Please, allow to set a spacing manually in Artboard Options or elsewhere —…

  4. Tab Indent. Just like Indesign. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!

    Setting Tab Indents with bullet points, like InDesign.
    Being able to tab, set measurement and line up paragraph indents.

    We need this because there are times when we do packaging/signs that have bullets that need tab indents that are controllable and that line up to the text on the next line.

    Shortcut = Command + | (set line indent)

    Every designer has wanted this for decades.

  5. layer locked with password

    we are creating layouts for franchisees and because many time they unlock the layers and moving around the elements, we thought that locking the layer and protecting the content with the password could be the solution to maintain integrity in the layout designed from the agency

  6. Stop with the supersampling export artboard option!!!!!!

    Seriously its becoming an irritating issue. Everytime when i want to export many artboard one short, i have to make sure i select supersampling....... otherwise it'll come out pixelated. I'm working in a fast pace environment and i can't keep double check on that option. why not just automatic just make sure the res at 72dpi come out the best appearance? Please fix this. Because if someone wants it to be lower appearance than hey, pls do click this more option. Really irritate me. Here is an image. Left, supersampling, right is not.

  7. Bring back menu highlighting feature in 'HELP' menu

    Please bring back menu highlighting feature for Illustrator and Photoshop! In previous versions, you could type a word in the HELP dropdown (i.e. "offset path in Ai"), and the menu where the item is located would drop down and highlight the item. This is very useful because designers sometimes remember the name of a feature, but not where it is located. Also for learning it is very useful.

  8. Swap Tool or Transform Option

    I would like a tool or feature whereby I can select two objects, hit the tool or possible transform option and the objects swap their exact positions. This would save an incredible amount of time especially when updating an existing document. There used to be a script for this way back in the day but I think it's time to bring in this very effective feature.

  9. Radial Repeat rotation angle value in options panel

    It would be nice to be able to directly enter the exact angle of rotation in the radial repeat options panel. Why is it missing? You can control the number of objects and the size of the circle, but not the angle.

  12. Ability to copy the name of a folder to other folders

    I name folders with the same name (ex-"PDF REVISED) to several different folders for several different jobs, but now I have to type out each name on each and every folder. Older versions of Illustrator had this function. Please bring it back.

  13. Maintain graph styles when updating data (bar graph issue)

    Issue with bar graphs:
    - All styling is removed when data is updated. Can you make it so it at least retains bar width and color?

  14. Similar to Flux Eyedropper Tool Plugin for Adobe InDesign

    A tool like Flux Eyedropper Tool for Illustrator would be a game change for faster workflow. I use this for Indesign it's a serious game changer.

    https://www.fluxconsulting.com/software/

    Instructions and user flow:
    1. Hold down the Control + Option keys, then release the Control key.
    2. Use the Eyedropper tool as you wish.
    3. Release the Option key to return to the tool you were using.

  15. Needing to manually link every link in a file, despite all the links being saved in the same folder

    It's driving me crazy because some of my files have 30+ links. I'm up to date with the latest software version. Help!

  16. Align to bleed

    Have an align to bleed option, anything going to print generally has a 3mm bleed and it would be handy to bet things to align to this instead of the edge of the artboard.

  17. 맥 버전에서도 윈도우버전과 같은 단축키를 쓸 수 있게 부탁드립니다.

    윈도우 버전에서는 알트 키를 이용해 메뉴에 접근하고 주요 메뉴는 연속된 키 입력으로 접근이 가능합니다. 예를 들어 문자 전체 선택을 하기 위해서는 알트 sop를 누르면 됩니다. 이러한 방법이 맥 버전에서는 불가능해 너무 불편합니다. 동일한 방식으로 단축키를 사용할 수 있도록 업데이트 부탁드립니다.

  18. 한국어로도 단축키가 되도록 부탁합니다.

    한국어 버전으로 작업을 할 때 언어가 한국어로 선택되어 있으면 단축키가 작동하지 않습니다. 다른 어도비 프로그램 중에는 한국어로도 단축키를 설정할 수 있는 것이 있습니다. 일러스트레이터도 한국어로 지정되어 있을 때도 단축키가 적용될 수 있길 부탁드립니다.

  19. We need consistency between Adobe programs.

    When are we going to get consistency between Adobe programs?

    Some examples:

    • Resizing in Photoshop and Illustrator: one requires SHIFT to retain proportions, one doesn't

    • Clicking the Fill/Stroke colour in Photoshop and Illustrator: one requires double clicking, one doesn't
