  2. Modern 3D effects need more control over mapping

    Map art lacks of control. I can't find a right way to place my art along the shape I've created. Previous versions let us place graphics, symbols, along the created shape and play around to find the desired way to make the art. Please add more graphic placement controls for symbols or graphics in 3D shapes.

  3. Add metric units in 3D

    When generating 3D, even if 2D path could be very precise in dimension, the 3D volume is most often expressed in proportion (from 0 to 100%)

    When you try to export for 3D printing it could be more usable to be able to express in metric units...
    Like it has been done in Photoshop some times (years) ago ;-)

  4. Need for Precise Axis Constraint when Repositioning Graphics with Shift

    When repositioning a graphic as a material, I can't constrain the position to x/y axis by holding shift, e.g., the graphic always gets off axis or rotates. Please provide more precise control over position of graphic

  5. Add a basic camera match feature for 3D

    Add a basic camera match feature. I'm trying to make some editable type going over a 3d render for a client who uses Illustrator. It was rendered in C4D with Octane so recreating it in Illustrator isn't going to happen. If I could just draw a few axis lines and then have it match this would make my task MUCH easier.

  6. Rotating 3D object should allow users to choose between local and global space

    I rotate on the X axis with the gizmo, but the input fields for Y and Z all update. So this is a local rotation gizmo translating to a global space field input? Not really that helpful for the user. Stick to local or give us the option to toggle local or global space.

  7. 3D Gizmo needs redesign: rotation feedback and axis color coding

    Gizmo needs to have a re-think. Just open any actual 3D app built in the last 20 years for tips. It gives no feedback. I rotate something, and it looks the same. it should orient itself to the object I'm rotating. Color coding each axis would help too.

  9. Introduce a way to control the cross-section for 3D Inflate profile

    For "Inflate", it would be cool to have a curves/profile editor to modify the cross-section more than the Volume slider currently allows. Currently it seems that turning down the volume essentially pancakes the object - and sometimes that's a good look! But it would be nice to have the option to retain an overall "bubble" feel like the object has at 100% Volume.

  10. Optimization of Rounded Rectangle in Illustrator Effects

    When using the Rounded Rectangle of Illustrator Effects, I hope that the upper and lower values ​​​​can be set separately, because when this effect is applied to text, the upper and lower heights are not even.

  11. Dimension tool style presets

    The dimension tool gives alot of style options for the arrow size, line thickness, offsets, etc. It would be great to save presets that could be switched from a dropdown list in the dimension tool options dialog.

  12. Graphic Styles direct hotkeys

    Some of us use graphics styles A LOT. And a way to quickly apply them now requires aiming and clicking. In modern now, a precise targeted click is the most inconvenient, attention-expensive, and rather ineffective gesture.

    Pro users use hotkeys.
    Since InDesign’s Quick Apply is not a thing yet (that’s another story), we’d like to be able to assign direct hotkeys to chosen styles.

    There are several ways to approach this: by name, or by position in the list... but not as an action wrapper — we have so little of F-keys.

  14. An ability to create custom bevel profiles for 3D and Materials Extrude

    We can create our own profiles for now Classic Extrude, by modifying the Bevels.ai — located here:
    Mac: /Applications/Adobe Illustrator [version]/Support Files/Resources/[locale]
    Win: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator [version]\Support Files\Required\Resources[locale]

    But changing the file does nothing to customize bevels for the modern 3D!
    They seem to be hardcoded.
    Please, make the same file to be recognized by the modern 3D, or perhaps come up with some better way, that does not require to modify a red-only file and restarting Ai — for both 3D methods.

  16. 球体のワイヤーフレーム描画に特化したエフェクトを用意して欲しい

    学生向けの講義や試験問題を作成する上で、
    幾何学での球体の描画や、天文学での黄道座標系、
    太陽の方位や高度の説明図を作成するのに非常に苦労する。

    半円を基に、効果 → 回転体(クラシック)で作成しても、
    アピアランス分割、グループ解除、パスの分割等の作業がとてもに苦痛である。

    Inkscapeに実装されている、「ワイヤーフレーム球体」の様な機能が
    Illustratorに実装されれば非常に助かります。

    ご検討をよろしくお願いいたします。

  17. Live Free Distort

    I would like to see the "Free Distort" effect be extended to work on the actual object, not going through a tiny dialog box that feels like I'm trying to apply it to a postage stamp. It's really difficult to apply a distorted shape to a larger area when I am guessing if a 1-pixel move of a tiny handle is going to make a difference or not. It would be amazing if four independent handles were on the actual art and allow me to move the corners exactly to the spot I want to place them at. It's a…

  19. Make Shadow bounds for 3D and Materials to auto-match the actual shadow bounds

    Please eliminate the shadow bounds for 3D objects, or make it infinite, or at least something more generous than 400%: 4000% perhaps? 40,000%

  20. 'Exclude stroke width' option in Transform effect

    When I apply Transform effect to a stroked object, Illustrator includes stroke width and the resulting effect isn't aligned to the main object's skeleton. Consider that I want to mirror a shape and what I expect is the paths to perfectly align to each other. But what happens is that Illustrator treats strokes like they are expanded paths. I usually have to move the effect to correct it.

    There should be an option in Transform effect that let the user exclude stroke width from effect. That would resolve this issue.
