  1. Enable searching for a glyph in the glyph's panel.

    Please allow us to search for glyphs in the panel, either using the unicode or via the name of the symbol. It is excruciating having to scroll through hundreds of characters hoping that your font supports the correct one.

    This is valuable to me because I am a graduate student researcher and I design figures for presentations in Illustrator, but it is challenging to write mathematical symbols without a simple search feature. For example, the partial derivative symbol or the gradient symbol is not available in all fonts, but if I want to find it, I have to search through…

  2. 关于选择对象

    建议增强或调整“E选择模式”。
    目前的“E选择模式”非常棒,但是当选择复杂背景上的对象时存在不足。
    选择工具(V):“E选择模式”是在拖动后触发,拖动就会移动点击对象,可以考虑调整为鼠标按下时,按下“E键”进入选择模式(不选择点击对象,只选择选框内的对象),原因是选择工具无法在非锁定的对象上拖动选择(锁定复杂背景也不是一件容易的事情),只能把选择工具移动到背景外再拖动选择,这会增加选择范围,有时候会把不需要选择的对象选中;
    另外,可以考虑套索工具增加“E选择模式”,因为套索工具可以在任意对象上拖动选择。

  3. Padding and margin in Illustrator objects

    It would be interesting to be able to place a margin or padding on objects such as shapes or text, in addition to a magnet system in which you can select what to stick this margin to, it could be vertex or edges.

  4. Template for cartons and boxes

    Please put a template generator for boxes. You can google for 'carton box generator', and it should be easy for you to add this feature in Illustrator.

  7. Hide Numbers Option for Dimension Tool

    Hello,

    I'd like to add the hide option for the numbers. I'm actually doing a floor plan, I want people to input by hand the numbers they see on the design by measuring with the real dimensions and have to hide the numbers by adding a shape over the numbers so people won't get confused with the numbers.

    I think it can come handy also for maths teachers for example, when they want to edit their drawing with a version for students and one for solutions. they can also edit with flying text with X, Y, Z or else for…

  8. Update packaged contents

    To be able to PACKAGE a file and it's contents/fonts is obviously essential, however - this should not be a end to a means. Once you package you file, and then have to make changes to the file you had open (this happens a lot), the PACKAGED contents is now out of date. Could be just the .ai, or .ai and links and fonts.

    Once you've PACKAGED once, there should be an UPDATE PACKAGE function. This should also be implemented in InDesign and Photoshop.

  9. Add common shapes to of illustrator shape tool (heart, banners shields)

    Feels like reinventing the wheel just to get a heart. Have more easily accessible stock shapes and let the user upload more to the shape tool - make a "more" like button.

  11. Need for Precise Axis Constraint when Repositioning Graphics with Shift

    When repositioning a graphic as a material, I can't constrain the position to x/y axis by holding shift, e.g., the graphic always gets off axis or rotates. Please provide more precise control over position of graphic

  12. multi layer groups

    I would love to group objects while keeping their layer allocation.
    Groups should be layer independent to be more flexible than layers, which are uses to organise objects already.

  13. Save User Templates In [Saved] Folder

    I would like to be able to save my templates altogether in the saved folder when I make a new document, this would make my life so much easier and make illustrator a much more valuable program for architecture visualization

  14. It would be possible that within Adobe Illustrator you could configure web links associating them with certain areas of the screen, with cer

    I edit assignments, quizzes and exams, with musical scores in Illustrator, and add YouTube link symbols to them. For these links to work I have to open the PDF in Acrobat and insert the web links there. But if I later want to edit some text, object, or image and I open it in Illustrator, I lose all the links configuration.

  15. Add a "move/copy art with artboard" switch to the artboard options, or the main prefs.

    Currently the only place the "move/copy art with artboard" switch exists is a button on the Control bar. I have never liked the Control bar and have hidden it since it was first added to Illustrator back in CS3.

    In my workflow, I almost never want to move/copy art with artboard, and for some reason this switch constantly turns itself back on, so it's extra annoying to have to either lock all my layers, or dig around this part of the interface I never use.

    If I hit return with the Artboard tool selected, I'll bring up the current artboard's…

  16. Tool to identify the size of each asset that is added to a document

    sometimes I save a project file and it is HUGE... because some asset I added is also HUGE, but I didn't realize it...

    I would like to see a feature where I could open a panel (maybe integrated into a LINKS panel?) and it shows each asset added and the size...that way I can make the decision to manually edit that asset to a smaller size so that my files aren't so huge

  17. Make more improvements to Dimensions

    Some add'l improvements that would be greatly appreciated:
    • Higher precision settings. At least to 1/8" but 1/16" would be great as well.
    • More formatting options for foot inch/ e.g. 7" instead of 0'-7"
    • Dimension text centered with the dimensions line as option, with a break in the line to accommodate the text.
    • Scale options (custom as well) in architectural format in addition to engineering format (e.g. 1/2" = 1'-0" in addition to 1:24)
    • Options to show dimension text rotated 90° - separate options for vertical, vs horizontal dimensions.
    • For "Line Type", give us all…

  18. Make an option to disable dimensions being live and sticky

    PLEASE ensure this is made into an option that can be turned off. We need the dimensions to NOT be live.

  19. Add a basic camera match feature for 3D

    Add a basic camera match feature. I'm trying to make some editable type going over a 3d render for a client who uses Illustrator. It was rendered in C4D with Octane so recreating it in Illustrator isn't going to happen. If I could just draw a few axis lines and then have it match this would make my task MUCH easier.

  20. Rotating 3D object should allow users to choose between local and global space

    I rotate on the X axis with the gizmo, but the input fields for Y and Z all update. So this is a local rotation gizmo translating to a global space field input? Not really that helpful for the user. Stick to local or give us the option to toggle local or global space.
