  1. フォント名表示の幅を調整できるオプションを追加してください

    macOS10.15、11
    Illustrator 25.4.3

    1.ドキュメント上にテキストを入力し、フォントを指定するために文字パネルを開きフォント名をドロップダウンする。
    2.フォントプレビューを非表示にした場合、モリサワフォント等接頭辞の大きなフォント(特にAP-OTFで始まるもの)は不適切な省略表記となりフォント名の特定が困難となる。

    これはフォントの命名にも絡む問題で一概にIllustratorに問題があるとは言い難いものです。ですから、ドロップダウンをプレスした際に表示される幅を可変にして略記表示が問題ある場合にユーザーが表示幅を調整して認識できるようにしていだだけたらと思います。

    添付画像の矢印部分をユーザーが調整してフォント名の表示部分の幅を任意に調節することで略記の部分を変更できるようにしていただけたらフォントを探す際に楽になるかと思います。

  2. Let us set the default color for effects

    I know this was changed in a recent release, but instead of just setting the default color for drop shadow to 100%K, let us choose what we want the default to be. Some of us might want rich black instead - or a different color. And please do this for all effects that use colors (Outer Glow, Inner glow, etc..)

  3. Bring back "Object lasso tool".

  4. Convert expanded strokes back to live strokes

    So far there is no way to de-expand strokes back to live strokes.

    The suggested practice is to cut the shape in pieces and blend pairs with 1-step blends, expand and join manually — a tedious solution. We have to keep strokes alive as long as possible if we plan to edit them after. The effects we can use to make an art non-destructive are quite limited.

    We now have cool Reform plugin by AstuteGraphics that allows to edit expanded strokes in a different way, but is does not solve the original problem and only helps to workaround and offers…

  6. Make Spellcheck take Soft Returns into Account

    Make spellcheck take soft returns into account when suggesting capitalisation. At the moment, it doesn't recognise a soft return for what it is and instead suggests the next word is the start of a new sentence.

    Why it's important? Because it's a basic omission.

  7. Source/origin paths and follower paths

    I'm looking for a way to set a certain layer/path as the origin so when I duplicate and change the original path, the rest will automatically update.

    This would for example be useful in iterative design workflow to quickly change designs and/or clipping mask instances where you need multiple copies of the same path, but only wish to edit one

  8. Font Height Options - "Cap Height" option by default

    The new font height option is great!

    However, working in the sign trade, everyone including our clients (who are mostly Architects) specify text by cap height so we are constantly changing the default Em size to cap height.

    It would save a lot of time and also eliminate any potential size issues with someone having the wrong option selected which could be very costly.

  9. Loaded eyedropper just like in InDesign

    Allow the eyedropper tool to pick up text formatting and load it to the eyedropper to paint the formatting over multiple instances without having to pick up the formatting again and again after each application currently.

    This exists in InDesign. So this is definitely possible.

  10. Incorporate a shortcut inside gradient's panel

    I would like to suggest to incorporate the shortcut D for "reset" the 2 initial colors inside the gradient's panel to system standard colors (black and white). I usually use as a last step before finishing my artworks some shadows for a more realistic depth/aspect using black-to-white together with multiply. The D shortcut reset the main stroke and fill colors main swatches, so it would be a little bit faster if the software understands the D as this way while it's working on gradient's setup windows.

  12. Please improve visibility of scroll bar handles (sliders) in dark mode!

    In dark mode, the handles / sliders on the scrollbar are very difficult, if not impossibel to spot, which inhibts my workflow considerably. Please, make the slider a lighter color or give us an option to change the color of the slider in preference.

  13. Please re-add 3D mapping with Symbols to new 3D functionality

    Please re-add 3D mapping with Symbols to the new 3D functionality.

    I know it's included in the "3D (Classic)" Effects menu, but it needs to be added to the new 3D functionality. Calling it "Classic" means Adobe is going to abandon it (for something worse). I use 3D mapping with Symbols ALL THE TIME. PLEASE add it back.

    Thank you!

  14. We need for the "Export" dialogue boxes to either remember our last used settings or let us set our own defaults.

    I use "Export As" quite a bit, and I ALWAYS use the same setting I used before. But the "Export As" dialogue box always defaults to settings that I don't, and will probably never use. Please let us set our own defaults or at the least, remember our last used settings.

  16. Allow to choose delimiter in Variables

    Hi, I need to have the ability to upload a tab separated csv file in the variable window. In Mexico we use commas instead of dots to separate the thousands, that generates a bad reading of the data set. Thanks

  18. Ability to change default unit of measurement

    Please add the ability to change the default units for documents. I work in print and it's frustrating (and annoying) to have to change the units from points to inches every time I create a new document.

  19. Stroke width profiles stored with files, not with app

    Currently, variable stroke width profiles are stored within the app, not within the file. So when I want to work on a cloud file on another computer, I have to manually add profiles to the saved profiles dropdown again from existing strokes, because they are no longer available.

    And while you're at it, add sorting, exporting and importing options to the variable width panel, it is seriously frustrating having to go through all of them every time - if you commonly use this feature, the list can get quite long.

  20. AI Reference Guide - Downloadable

    I would love to see a return of a downloadable reference guide / user manual. I want the ability to read through it offline, occasionally print the page that's pertinent to my task, and have a book that is physically on my desk (not the desktop).. FYI, on this page (https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/faq.html), under Learning Illustrator > Where can I find the manual, the answer is: "You can find web and PDF versions of the Illustrator manual on the Illustrator Help page." I'm still looking for that PDF...
