  3. 3D page mockup

    I'd love the ability to create an open brochure or magazine, or book mockup using the new overhauled 3d tools, but the tool is currently too limited. Seems to me that what is missing is the ability to bend or warp planes after they have been tilted and rotated. There are other ways of achieving this geometry, but they feel like hacks, and the new place graphic/material capability doesn't recognize the geometry that was partly made with other tools before getting into 3d. Please keep developing the 3D features in illustrator with product mockups in mind, including publication mockups.

  4. sombras paralelas

    Hola! Les escribo ya que no puedo usar la herramienta estilizar de efectos, ya que no me permite usar sombras paralelas. He intentado usar la ayuda de ilustrator y aún así no se aplica a la imagen luego de terminar.

  5. you should consider adding the "perspective" feature from the classic 3D options to the new realisrtic 3D! adds more depth especially if us

    you should consider adding the "perspective" feature from the classic 3D options to the new realisrtic 3D!

    adds more depth especially if used in typography.

    The perspective in classic 3D unfortunately is not working well if the possition is FRONT because the render of the sides is incomplete!

    Imagine if this feature was part of the new 3D!!!

    PLEASE ADD THE PERSPECTIVE INTO THE NEW 3D

    thanks guys

  6. Perspective Distort tools to mockup signs on photos

    If possible please can you add the distort picture/image or even text that has been converted to outlines. this is litterly the only reason for me to use photoshop.
    I'm a sign writer and I need to show what the clients sign looks like on the building so I now have to save the sign as a jpeg, then I need to open Photoshop and import the image of the building, then upload a picture of the sign, then I can distort the picture of the sign so it looks like it is actually on the building, I can sort…

  7. Please re-introduce 3D VECTORS

    I know, I know, "3D (Classic)" is still in the Effect/3D and Materials" menu, but the "Classic" designation means it's on the chopping-block.

    Please do not get rid of 3D VECTORS! Adobe Dimensions used to be so completely awesome (it was simple, easy and perfect) and that was made "Classic", too. 3D vectors are far superior for illustration than all the trendy raster stuff.

    PLEASE BRING BACK 3D VECTORS

    Thank you!

  8. 3D-manipulation of grouped 3D-objects: please add this

    It would be great if Illustrator could 3D-manipulate grouped 3D objects in 3D space. All I need is to be able to group and position individual 3D objects into a grouped 3D object, and then be able to position, rotate that mass of grouped 3D objects.

    Thank you!

  9. 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!

  10. Line Segment Tool to respect selected Graphic Style by default

    Currently, if I have a certain Graphic Style selected, it gets applied to objects created with Pen Tool or all shape-drawing tools (Ellipse, Rectangle, Polygon, Star).
    This doesn’t work this way with line-drawing tools (Line Segment, Arc, Spiral, Grids…). Or rather it does, only if the “Fill Line” option is turned ON in the Tool Options window. It is turned OFF by default though AND this setting is not sticky between sessions.
    So with every new session, I’m back to behavior when a chosen graphic style is not applied to an object drawn with a Line Segment Tool.

  11. Make Illustrator opacity masks work like masks do in Photoshop

    For opacity masks, 100% White should represent a 100% absence of masking and 100% Black should represent 100% masking (like in Photoshop).

    The current system in Illustrator seems very unintuitive and flawed – a basic white to black gradient does not even totally obscure an image/object at one end of the gradient.

    It shouldn't be the case that you then have further reduce the opacity of the gradient colours to achieve a standard gradient effect.

  12. Dynamic outline (as an effect?)

    I really wish we could have a dynamic way to create outlines for strokes (with arrowheads in particular) without having to 'break' them into shapes first.

    It could be an effect, for example. And yes I have tried the existing 'Outline' effects but the do nothing (or am I not using them right?).

  13. I would like to use the old extrude and bevel feature

    the new 3D & Materials feature does not have the same little cube you could manually adjust the perspective on, and instead it is much more tedious having to enter the numbers

    I also found it easier to get out a vector version rather than the image it likes to output now

  15. I'd like the ability to import .spsm files to Materials.

    When taken from Illustrator to a community-created assets page, there are tons of .spsm files and only a few .sbsar files. The .spsm files are the ones that I like, but I can't use them in Illustrator.

  16. Maintain graph styles when updating data (bar graph issue)

    Issue with bar graphs:
    - All styling is removed when data is updated. Can you make it so it at least retains bar width and color?

  17. Cut-off of Effects like Drop Shadow etc

    Working with Flexo plates, we need to cut-off vignettes at 3%, it would be great to have an 'Advanced' section on effects like Drop Shadow to cut off at a stated percentage. Currently have to work around by Expanding the effect, exporting an the image for Photoshop, using the Curves to cut-off of 3%, then relinking the image in Illustrator which also means having multiple files...

  18. Make Appearance work for Type objects

    More specifically, with type objects, the Appearce palette just says 'Characters', without reflecting the current stroke and fill state of the object. New stroke and fill have to be added to make the Appearance palette useful.

  19. Stop with the supersampling export artboard option!!!!!!

    Seriously its becoming an irritating issue. Everytime when i want to export many artboard one short, i have to make sure i select supersampling....... otherwise it'll come out pixelated. I'm working in a fast pace environment and i can't keep double check on that option. why not just automatic just make sure the res at 72dpi come out the best appearance? Please fix this. Because if someone wants it to be lower appearance than hey, pls do click this more option. Really irritate me. Here is an image. Left, supersampling, right is not.

  20. Fisheye lens effect

    Is it possible to apply Fisheye lens effect in Adobe Illustrator as in Freehand MX? Adobe Illustrator has some features, but not as effective as Freehand.
