  1. 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?

  2. 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...

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  11. Automatisches Textfeld, das sich an den Text anpasst

    Bei Infografiken werden kurze Texte oft mit farbigen Flächen hinterlegt. Cool wäre eine Funktion in Illustrator, welche einen Textblock oder eine Textzeile automatisch mit so einer Fläche hinterlegt. Optional könnte man Farbe, Eckenradius, Transparenz, Grösse (über den Text hinaus) usw. bestimmen.

  12. Add Behind blurr effect

    Can we have blurr behind like in adobe Xd .

    This would be great for designing if you need to blurr multiple objects in full or partially rather than adjusting for each layer or shape .Its a long process just to partially blurr an object because you have to play around with clip mask , but if there was a blurr behind feature it would be easier.

  13. Object Repeat

    First of all, I'm LOVING the new object repeat function! This is one of the best new features to be added to Illustrator in a long time! With that said, it's still a bit rudimentary in it's functionality (at least when it comes to the radial repeat). It would be great if you could add the option to choose the rotation angle of the object when you repeat it. For example: If I have a star shape and I want to repeat the star but keep the top point facing up I should have the option to do so. I…

  14. Untie the Transform Patterns checkbox in General Options and Transform Effect dialog.

    Sometimes (actually pretty often) it is necessary to alter a pattern size for one single object. So you go to Appearance -> Fill -> Effects -> Distort and Transform -> Transform and there you have checkboxes to chose whether to transform object or pattern or both and that is great.
    But once you have done this (for one single object) this setting changes the general Option under Preferences->General and this setting affects the entire app, not this file only and you must change it back each time. And that is not that great.

  17. warp Effect not working

    I used to be able to take a straight line and make it wavy with the Effect > Warp > Wave effect - I see that there was a previous 'resolved' ticket on this - it is NOT resolved. I have been using Illustrator for over 25 years and have never seen this app in such a bad state. I am spending more time here today flagging bugs than working on my projects today. I hope you understand how frustrating ALL these bugs are when you are trying to get a project out the door and a client is screaming…

  18. Effect units bound to global units.

    I am working with "mm" most of the time. However, when I use effects, I have to guess the right amount, since those are in "pixel" most of the time.
    As an example, feather or blur, and many more.

    It would be nice if the units would change with the units used in the file.

  19. Drop shadows and blurs!!

    The ability to use Gaussian blur or motion blur for highlights and drop shadows would be magnificent. I currently have to use Procreate and then attempt vectorizing the rasterized image and it’s not looking how I want it to look. I’m still learning the iPad illustrator app and it’s coming along. Keep up the good work!! Also, the ability to Sheer a shape for perspective uses. Affinity designer has this ability in the transform area.

  20. Effects ( fx ) drag and drop

    Just like in Abode Indesign, when you apply an effect to type or object all you have to do is drag & drop the "fx" icon in the appearance bar to the type or object you wish to apply that effect to.

    Adding this same feature will increase productivity when adding multiple effects and create a more cohesive work from program to program.
