  1. Callout Tool

    I'm sure a simple callout tool with some callout styles will help a lot. Sometimes I need to export as a pdf just to use callouts in acrobat. Can you manage it?

  2. Make Smooth command to have the persist/sticky option

    I like the new Smooth command and I'm using it frequently enough that it would be nice to have a persist/sticky option for it instead of repeatedly going back to the Object menu.

    Also, I find that smoothing of 20% works well for a lot of shapes I'm editing but could the bar be enhanced with a few click-to bars to speed up this process (see attached). Maybe include this for the Simplify command as well.

  3. Option to add dimensions to current layer

    I enjoy the new dimension tool but find it annoying that it creates a whole new separate layer. Maybe my workflow is unconventional, but it would be nice if the dimensions could just be added to my print instructions layer instead of a whole new layer just for the dimensions. I make a lot of diecuts and find myself still using old methods to create the dimension lines due to it always putting them on another layer.

  4. Add and option for Offset Path command and effect to respect the direction and starting point of the original path

    Offset Path makes width and length of a rectangle to swap

    When applying Offset Path after making a rectangle, the size of width and length of the rectangle are changed into each other and the rectangle gets rotated 270 degrees even though real shape is not changed.
    It seems bug need to be fixed.

    I attatched gif video and related link.

  5. 复合路径建立的剪切蒙版

    复合路径建立的剪切蒙版,如何把蒙版分割的对象分离成单独的对象。如图中,我用矩形复合路径通过剪切蒙版把图片分割,但是现在是一个整体,我想让蒙版中分割的每个对象成为一个单独的对象,请问有什么好办法吗?比如类似于“扩展”的功能。
    当然,每个矩形可以单独建立剪切蒙版,但是会非常麻烦。

  6. Type number of sides for polygon tool and star tool

    Currently to get a number of points on a star you have to type the [up key] or [down key] But often I know what number of points or sides I want on the polygon or star.

    I'd like the ability to type the number of sides/points.

    This could be achieved in a number of ways:
    - An option panel (could change it after the fact as long as it is selected as long as the points haven't been moved?)
    - hold and drag and type the number (say 3, 6, 9, etc)
    - double click on the polygon/star icon…

  7. Allow Shaper Tool to create stars

    Shaper Tool allows to create live rectangles, ellipses, polygons in a freehand manner: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/building-new-shapes-using-shape.html

    Recently a new live shape got added into Illustrator — Star.
    But Shaper Tool won’t create one if you try to scribble it.
    Not sure how popular Shaper Tool is, but it should be able to do it anyway.

    Original idea by Monika Gause.

  8. Graph to vector

    I'm requesting a feature I'm calling Graph to Vector. The idea would be to use the data in a graph and use the AI capabilities to generate a vector based on that data.

    For instance, if you had a graph representing how you spent your budget this past year with 5 different categories divided by percentages, you could take the colors used to represent the percentages and make a vector with those same colors in those same percentages. If 20% of the budget was represented by blue, then 20% of the vector could be blue.

    It would be a totally…

  9. Addressing long-standing graph tool issues

    Just went back to prerelease site where I logged a complaint about the Radar graph. Feedback was that the error was not an error but an intentional result. I am however not satisfied with that reply. Other graph tools remember grid line settings, font settings, etcetera. Radar tool reverts all those settings every time the graph is updated. This is not a logical result. But this is just one of many complaints about the graph tools and there has been zero development of graph tools, as far as I can see, since they first appeared over 30 years ago. I…

  10. Illustrator on Web now has Quick Pen tool. Desktop Ai needs one too

    Illustrator on Web got this Quick Pen tool (https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator-on-the-web-beta-discussions/introducing-the-new-quick-pen-tool-beta-in-illustrator-on-the-web-beta/td-p/14146260) in October of 2023, very similar to the recently abandoned Spiro Tool plugin, to Tangent Arc tool by Graffix, and to some of Astute Graphics’ plugins.

    This is not a replacement to any one of them, and to the Illustrator’s native Curvature, but it’s an interesting tool to have at desktop as well.

  11. Press Alt while creating a radius / diameter dimension to toggle these two mode on the fly

    Currently Dimension tool requires you to orient your cursor when creating a radius or diameter: inside of the clicked shape to create a diameter or outside to make it a radius.

    This is very nifty, sure.
    But:

    1. The tool hardly tells you about it when you draw. The only hint Ai give us is a blue bar (that we all tired of seeing, because everything in Ai now pops and shouts and distracts — I’m speaking about use, Text To Vector!) — I attach the screenshot of it for those who blinked and missed it.

    2. If I work with a…

  12. Press Shift to constrain the angle of a radius / diameter dimension

    Shift is universally used to constrain a drawn art to 0-45-90° angles when using a tool. This applies to lines, rectangles, other shapes, anything that can be clearly oriented.

    The Dimension tool breaks the paradigm — we can’t hold shift to constraint the angle of the drawn dimension line when creating radii or dimeters.

    Some standards require us to have these lines too use integer steps, like 15° or 30°... this is very hard to comply now.

    Please either make the tool to respect angles set in Preferences > Smart Guides, or make it a separate setting in the tool’s…

  13. Chained dimensions

    New Dimension tool is designed to be good-enough, but not be way too complex to setup and use.

    One of things we need to be a part of this 'good-enough' set of features it has should be a way to create consequential serialized dimensions, like the image attached demonstrates.

    To do that now, we’d have to drag each segment one-by-one, and snap the dimensions line to each other (which in the current build just doesn’t happen even!). This method is generates doubled lines instead of only one, and won’t allow us to move all the dimension lines at once if…

  14. Non-Destructive Path Trim

    It would save me incredible amounts of time if I could simply--and non-destructively--trim a path.

    Example:
    I create a character's arm using a tapered stroke. I then duplicate that tapered stroke so that it can function as a shirt sleeve.
    <Here is where the issue comes in...>
    There's not a good way to trim that duplicated stroke to function as a sleeve. I can add points and delete the stroke, but the width won't match anymore. I can create a clipping mask, but it's a pain and makes adjusting the characters pose needlessly laborious.

    Being able to trim the path…

  16. Scale stroke width of multiple points

    I'd like to be able to scale the stroke width of multiple points at the same time, that way they match. That, or copy the stroke width value of one point and be able to paste it onto another.

  18. 寸法ツールで描画したものを数値で編集

    寸法ツールで寸法線が描画できるのは非常に助かります!
    ソフトウェアの仕組み的に難しいと思いますが,寸法ツールで作成した寸法線の数値を編集できるようにし,3DCADソフトみたいに,その寸法編集が描画に反映されると図の作成に非常に便利になると思います。

  19. Star Tool: include center/origin lines

    This would be a small addition, but one that I think would be valued. All regular stars (that is, not "fun" stars whose inner circle radius has been enlarged to make them "puffy") are made up either of:

    1. A repeated/rotated shape
    2. A single line bouncing off the outer diameter that eventually meets itself again

    It would be a nice addition to this tool for those "origin lines" to be represented in the output so that we can more easily create art based on those lines instead of having to re-create the lines manually.
