  1. Make gradient swatches shareable via CC Library

    Exactly as the title says. Make gradient swatches able to be shared across projects via the library. As it is, I can add elements using the gradient swatch to the library, but then the gradient itself isn't editable on the other end.

    Thanks!

  2. Make Illustrator for iPad and Adobe Library more pattern-friendly

    Editing and scaling patterns on the iPad is nearly impossible. Ist would be great if the options would be similar as in the desktop version, where scaling, editing, changing the colour of patterns etc. is with the swatches easily done.
    Also if patterns could be saved to the adobe library it would simplify the working process immensely.

  4. Adding gradients to swatch groups

    1) DESCRIPTION: Right now, we can set gradients as swatches, and we can set several swatches to go into a group. However, we cannot save gradients to a swatch group. But what if we could?

    2) WHY IS THIS VALUABLE TO YOU?: Because, Adobe, why would you have "swatch groups" when you can't even put the different varieties of swatches in them?

  6. History of Colors used

    Keep a color palette of the last 5 or 10 colors used to quickly choose color in your work rather than using the color picker.

  7. Nuance de ton direct

    Il serait utile de pouvoir créer une nuance "ton direct" réunissant plusieurs tons direct en pouvant sélectionner le pourcentage de chaque nuance, pour éviter de faire une superposition d'objets en surimpression. Un peu de la même manière qu'avec le nuancier quadri, mais avec des tons directs : le même objet pourra attaquer plusieurs séparations avec une trame différente.
    ex : 877 à 100% + Reflex blue à 5 %

  8. Have 'Select All Unused' in the Swatches panel look inside symbols

    Right now when you choose 'Select All Unused', it selects colors that are in use inside of symbols and they will delete if you are not careful.

    If the color is not directly placed on the artboard it seems Illustrator can't tell it really is in use.

    Deleting the swatches results in 'Deleted Global Color' swatches appearing in your Swatch panels.

  9. Drag and drop Colour like Procreate

    It’s easier to drop it when filling a larger space

  10. Global Gradient Swatches

    Please make it possible to make Gradient Swatches global - just like colour swatches.

    In this way, a Gradient applied to several objects can be edited to update all objects.

  11. Name a swatch with its colour values

    I want to be able to name a swatch with its colour values - just like in InDesign - simply by ticking the checkbox - see the screenshot from InDesign..
    Let's say I have an imported document with a lot of RGB colours. The document needs to be converted to CMYK. After conversion all the colours are now CMYK but still have their names in RGB, I don't want this and I don't want to have to re-name each one by typing all the colour values!!
    Please give us this same option to re-name a colour with its values, with…

  12. Easily move large number of swatches into a cc library

    Companies offer free downloads of their color libraries, typically over 1000 individual color swatches. Currently, each swatch has to be moved one-by-one into a library. It's extremely time consuming and tedious. I have talked to numerous customer service agents and there is no satisfactory work around.

    Create an easy way to transfer numerous color swatches at once into a library (which allows for use of the search bar feature). Using ccda>your work>upload does not work either.

  13. Include all free form gradient options and gradient meshes from the desktop version.

    Having only point–based free form gradients is far to restrictive. We should at least be able to use free form line gradients and gradient meshes.

  14. Please keep Preview active in Swatch Options Panel

    Annoying to have switchin it on each time we edit a global color.

    Please keep the Preview check in the last chosen state.

  15. Consistence in editing common values

    E.g. when two HSB colors voth have 100% saturation, a selection containing those objects should allow to edit their saturations simultaneously.

    But Ai leaves the field empty - as if the values where different.

  16. Advanced Blend Colors Horizontally / Vertically


    • make it work with compound paths

    • give the user a choice to blend HSB (Blending R and B should give G)
      e.g. creating a rainbow should be possible with blending colors, but it isn't in the current version.

  17. スウォッチオプションでカラーコードを変更できるようにする

    今は、スウォッチオプションでカラーコードが入力できないので、RGBで入力しています。
    スウォッチオプションでカラーコードを変更できるようにしてほしいです。それとカラーをダブルクリックすることでカラーピッカーを表示させてほしいです。

  19. Indesigns colour theme tool.

    Would love to see this implemented in Illustrator as I, like many others, like to import JPEGS or screen grabbed colour samples to take colours from it manually. It would be awesome to have a colour theme generated from those images that could work within Illustrator and then used across the adobe library. Also this might be something that could also allow you to select an artboard of choice and generate the top 5 colours of that illustration.

  20. No ability to add Hex code in Swatch colours

    I don't understand why this has not yet been implemented in the 30 years Illustrator is active. What could've taken me 2 minutes to do, took me 10 minutes, and had to go the long way around of opening Colour Options, try to memorise the RGB values, and then go back into Swatch Options, and then add in the values.

    Please can you add the Hex Code field in the Swatch Colour options, so that we can just paste the code to get the RGB values? And also let those updated swatches automatically update the gradients that are applied to…
