  1. Fast way to make multiple text boxes

    I like to break up words and phrases in to multiple text boxes so I can move them freely. It would be nice to have a fast way while typing out the phrase to break it in to more than one text box. Like a “command + enter” type thing that instead of going to a new line it goes to a new text box.

  2. Make Spellcheck take Soft Returns into Account

    Make spellcheck take soft returns into account when suggesting capitalisation. At the moment, it doesn't recognise a soft return for what it is and instead suggests the next word is the start of a new sentence.

    Why it's important? Because it's a basic omission.

  4. Include "Juneteenth" in the Shared Adobe Dictionary

    Juneteenth became an official US holiday last year and has been celebrated unofficially since at least 1886.

    Shockingly though, the word is not in any Adobe dictionaries.

    I propose adding it to the shared dictionary and pushing the update to all applications. I have tested this in multiple apps, and all show it as an error and suggest "Nineteenth" instead.

    This is a critical DEI omission, especially this month.

    Thanks.

  7. Type tool does not keep selected color

    If I have one fill color selected on the type tool, it changes to black the moment I click on the artboard to begin typing. It needs to stay the selected color for all tools. I shouldn't have to go back and change the color.

  8. Leerzeichen beim Wörter editieren nicht antasten!

    Wenn man ein Wort in einem Satz auswählt um es zu ändern, wird das Leerzeichen danach auch ausgewählt. Wenn ich nun das neue Wort schreibe, wird das Leerzeichen entfernt! Man muss dann immer extra das Leerzeichen erneut eingeben! In vielen anderen Textprogrammen wird das Leerzeichen nicht angetastet (ob es nun ausgewählt wird oder nicht)!

  9. Customizable underline text styles

    I use Illustrator for digital design visuals and would like to be able to use custom underline styles for links, specifically line weight, colour and offset.

    That would make it much easier to design link styles common for modern web styles.

    Thanks,
    Will

  10. Character panel in Properties Tab needs just one more row, please!

    The Properties Panel is great. It contains about 98% of every tool I need typically. However, I would be great to have at least ONE MORE ROW of the Character panel visible. Certainly everyone uses Scale when setting type? It's a fundamental necessity. This would prevent having to click MORE OPTIONS every single time just to horizontal scale. Simple but huge. Thank you.

  11. Add a true automatic text reduction feature.

    It would be great if text size would automatically reduce to fit a given size text box (as its added).

  12. Automatisches RESET oder Button für die Textformatierung bei Illustrator und InDesign

    Diese Funktion fehlt. Wenn ich viel schreibe oder Text einfüge, dann ist es mühsam, dass ich nicht die Wahl habe was bei einem neuen Textfeld bzw. neu eingefügten Text passieren soll: Letzte Formatierung beibehalten (aktuell) oder Reset zu einer Standard-Formatierung. Vielleicht reicht auch ein "RESET Textformatierung"-Button in der Menüleiste.

    Alternativ wäre es mir recht, wenn z.B. einfach nur die Funktion geändert würde bei Klick auf Formatierungsoptionen. Beispiel "Text unterstrichen". Wenn kein Text ausgewählt ist, dann ist "Text unterstrichen" dauerhaft an, wenn Text vorher markiert wurde, dann wird nur der ausgewählte Text unterstrichen und alle folgende Texte sind "normal", d.h. man…

  13. Please Address Ongoing Bugs in Font Activation

    Despite recently getting a fix, there is still a problem involving fonts deactivating, and Illustrator listing those same fonts as active.
    I'm still constantly going to the website to deactivate and reactivate fonts, and it's annoying.
    Just this afternoon I had this problem with Lato, HWZ Artz, and Wigwag. However I've seen this problem with many others before.
    Can't we just store these things locally and keep them there??

  14. Font Height Options - "Cap Height" option by default

    The new font height option is great!

    However, working in the sign trade, everyone including our clients (who are mostly Architects) specify text by cap height so we are constantly changing the default Em size to cap height.

    It would save a lot of time and also eliminate any potential size issues with someone having the wrong option selected which could be very costly.

  15. We need Umlaute! (Variable Text doesn't like äüö)

    Specifically when working with variables in text form. They are not being imported correctly, despite everything else working. See picture.

  16. widows, orphans and hyphenations

  17. Choose Which Paragraph Style is Based on Another Paragraph Style

    When creating a new paragraph style, it would be very helpful to choose which other style it's based on. Currently, the only option is the default paragraph style. This is very nice when you have one base style, and you can build on it with other styles.

  18. Japanese characters in Japanese fonts are misaligned in Vertical Text Alignment

    Starting with v24.3, vertical text alignment is now available. This is a great feature we have been waiting for. However, characters in Japanese fonts are misaligned at the center and bottom, as shown in Figure-1.

    This is probably due to the fact that the bottom edge of the character is used as the baseline.Maybe we need The Last Baseline option.It's a tough road. But the Illustrator team can make it happen, I am sure of it.

    Japanese:
    v24.3より、垂直方向のテキスト配置が利用できるようになりました。これは待ち望んでいた素晴らしい機能です。しかし、日本語フォントの文字は、Figure-1に示すように、中央揃えと下揃えの位置がずれてしまいます。
    これは、文字の下端をベースラインとしていることが原因と思われます。末尾ベースラインオプションが必要かもしれません。大変な道のりです。しかし、Illustratorチームはそれを実現できる、私はそう確信しています。

  19. package font-family instead of font

    Sometimes I need to adjust the font style in font family like Helvectica Neue Light, Condensed, Regular and so on, However now the illustrator only makes the package the font which have been used. That means when I get the package, I only can have one font in the font family only.

  20. Save frequent missing fonts selection for future files

    I would love to be able to save or automatically apply missing font replacements.

    Scenario: Adobe is dropping support for Type 1 fonts. Thousands of my Illustrator files contain a Type 1 font family. To head things off, I was able to obtain the required newer font format for the font family, but it is now seen as a new font by Illustrator (fair enough). But, now when I open up each file I have to painstakingly replace the old fonts with the new ones. Again, this applies to thousands of files and massively slows my process down.

    The feature…
