  2. Drop color

    Definitely miss adobe draw.
    I’d love to see it be easy to drop in colors and for there to be brushes like in adobe draw.
    Also the brush/ pencil seem really glitchy and not like a natural gesture

  3. A timeline and onionskin for animation, also add the loop tool. Take a look at Procreate!

    It would be good to animate from an Adobe product on my iPad. There are a lot of limitations with other Animation apps. The Loop pool would be very helpful when drawing.

  4. The zoom back as it is still in Photoshop and InDesign.

    The zoom back as it is still in Photoshop and InDesign. That is, zoom from a selection made with the tool. Or the addition of a modifier key to have the zoom as was done in previous versions of Illustrator.

  7. Please turn the eyedropper into a cursor for multiple text formatting

    Indesign allows you to drag over multiple words within a text box, or over various different places to apply a text attribute with the eyedropper tool. ie, the eyedropper when hovered over the text actually becomes like a cursor, so you can just swipe over the text to apply the attribute. Please can Illustrator have this same feature. Otherwise we have to use the cursor to locate the word, then shift+arrow right to highlight it, then click to apply. It's a bit annoying and time-wasting. The eye-dropper turning into a cursor when hovering over text is much more useful.

  8. Layer Themes

    It would be a fantastic feature to be able to save different 'layer themes' and be able to toggle between them. A layer theme would control which layers are visible and not visible.

    EG: You have a file set up with 20 layers. Theme A has layers 1, 2, 5, 19, 20 visible. Toggle to Theme B it has layers 1, 3, 9, 15, 18 visible. The user can create a new theme from whatever the status of the layer panel is, then can quickly toggle between these different layer visibility settings. The layer themes can have custom names set…

  9. Ouvrir plusieurs documents à la fois

    Je me demande est ce qu’il serait possible de faire en sorte d’ouvrir plusieurs documents, au moins deux pour copier coller des objectes, calques, de l’un vers l’autre, sans avoir à passer par la galerie.

    Importation spéciale ? Aperçu ? Picture in picture ?

  10. Triangles

    Add the use of triangles into shapes as this will help with projects. as there is the only use of lines, square and circles.

  11. SVG OUTLINE VIEW

    PLEASE provide us with an SVG outline view!! The outline view is great but doesn’t work for svg. I have to actually open my saved file in a different program to make sure it is going to cut properly. A lot of back in forth. Thank you for your consideration! I love ai for the iPad! A REAL game changer for me!

  13. Image Trace

    Please add the ability to use Image Trace so we can convert raster graphics to vector. Also, it would be great if we could choose which object other objects are aligned to. Lastly, please add more keyboard/trackpad support that is similar to the desktop version to make using the app with a keyboard and mouse feel more traditional.

  14. Mirrored Live Sketch

    Like Procreate Symmetry tool so you can draw on a vertical half and have the mirrored side reflected as you draw. Essential for technical product design/apparel design sketches, where we usually draw in halves, then duplicate and mirror. Would expedite process and allow for changes that may be desirable, as one previews full proportions.

  17. Illustrator 2021 is constantly crashing, resulting in my not being able to use it.

    stop it from crashing. Whatever you did with the 2021 version, reverse it. It's worse than useless. I cannot get any production.

  18. Intelligently switch to Stroke or fill colour depending on what is selected.

    I have used illustrator for 15+ years and gained numerous grey hairs because of it. One thing that has constantly driven me insane is this:

    You have in your illustration some elements that are fill only. Other elements that are strokes only.

    You are busy with the eyedropper tool. Recolouring your artwork, trying out ideas.

    If I select a stroke only item, that has no fill, please use a couple simple lines of code to switch the tool bar swatch thingy to focus on stroke. Similar to pressing X on the keyboard. And vice verse with a fill only item.

  19. Paste Appearance command

    We need a way to quickly transfer appearance from one object to another.

    For now there are several ways to do it.


    1. Grab the Eyedropper tool. Go to tool’s options. Set both Appearance check-marks. Select the art you want to apply appearance to and click the one you want to copy appearance from with the tool (or vice versa with a proper modifier held).
      This one requires me to go to the options before to set these check-marks and go there after to turn them off, because I don’t need these by default.


    2. Save a graphic style from the object…

  20. export large artboards to PNG using high (300 dpi) resolution

    Currently, files with large artboards (larger than 6535 px x 4730 px) can not be exported as a PNG with high resolution. The best is a medium resolution. My current project series requires a specific large artboard size (9075 px wide x 6201 px high exactly) and I would like to be able to export and then print them in high resolution to give my customers the best possible printed product. Illustrator does not currently support this, unfortunately.
