  1. Please support Hebrew language

    That’s make problems when I’m trying to write in Hebrew
    And because of it I need to buy computer … that’s why I think they u need to do Hebrew language support on the illustrator fonts and so…

  5. Make Illustrator inform users about the live shape nature of the path used for area type and provide associated controls for it

    Currently, when we use a live rectangle as a path for an area type, it secretly stays live shape inside, and it allows us to scale the object with the round corners honored. If we round corners for a rectangle-looking path (not live shape), corners will get stretched.

    However, there is no way to distinguish these two cases with UI, or to convert a rectangular path used for the area type into live rectangle shape, or to have shape-sepcific controls.

    Please refer to the discussion in comments for the details.

    This request is based on the original declined bug report…

  6. Copy and paste formatting to text

    Please add a very important abbreviation
    It is paste formatting
    (And copy the same text)
    I suggest its shortcut is ctrl + shift + V
    and
    ctrl + shift + C copy shortcut
    As in MS Word
    It's an important shortcut and makes it much easier at work. Please let me know when it's activated

  7. Add "tight" leading to preset leading

    From the beginning, Illustrator has offered an "Auto" setting for leading, plus specific setting numbers (12pt, 14pt, 18pt, 21pt, et al). What I wish that you would add is a setting for "tight leading," in other words, leading set to the same point size as the font itself. Like 10/10, 12/12, 72/72. Seems like an easy, one line of code kind of addition. And I, for one, would be eternally grateful for it.

  8. Break link to paragraph style

    Simple option to break a bit of text from paragraph style. Just like we can in InDesign.

  9. Option + Arrow to duplicate and move text

    Please bring back the ability to duplicate and move text with the Option + Arrow keys. It was an incredibly handy feature. I used it all the time and it has been sorely missed.

  10. Identify Newly Installed Fonts in Adobe Illustrator

    Problem:

    Managing large font collections in Adobe Illustrator can be challenging, especially when installing new fonts. With hundreds or even thousands of fonts, identifying recently added ones becomes a tedious task, often requiring manual scrolling and searching through the entire font menu.

    Proposed Solution:

    Implement a feature in Illustrator that allows users to easily identify newly installed fonts. Here are two potential options:

    Filter by Install Date: Add a sorting option within the font menu that displays fonts by their installation date. This would allow users to quickly see the most recently added fonts at the top of the list.

  11. Allow the bullet behavior to be turned ON or OFF

    I would very much like to have the option to turn the Bullet behavior ON or OFF. - Part of why I use Illustrator as much as I do is that I like to have complete control of my design. I use InDesign in a very limited, specific way, even with book layout, i.e. TOC & pagination. - For example, I'm trying to make headers for a short PDF and I can't add numbers before my headers without loosing control of the styling. They've been gobbled up by the bullet functionality and I can't even change the color. I can't…

  13. Make Check Spelling work in Finnish

    I have searched for answers in community and tried all the suggestions.
    At least English, Spanish and Swedish spell checking is working.

    I have changed the language to Finnish in preferences hyphenation settings, character styles, paragraph styles and in the written text box. Spell check finds no words and automated check also does nothing.

  16. Find / Replace font... to include adjusting font and text size

    I would like to see a capability added to the find/replace font... feature to include finding and replacing text sizes throughout a document. I make a lot of repetitive text throughout many artboards and sometimes I have to adjust the text size of a particular font. In addition I sometimes have mixed fonts in a textbox and have to adjust the size of one or a few of them separately without changing the size of the other fonts. That would be a super time-saving feature too.

  17. Opentype + Glyphs UI Menu Preview

    While the UI for Opentype is appreciably better than Indesign, there are still a few hinderances in the UI that make it painfully difficult to use and limits functionality. This could solved in one (hopefully easy) solution: PREVIEW TYPOGRAPHIC FEATURES

    THE PROBLEM:
    Currently, you have to click the stylistic set to open a dropdown menu, once you’ve clicked a style, the dropdown disappears. To see another style you need to open the dropdown menu again and deselect the previous style you just selected. Open the dropdown menu again, and then select the next style.

    THE SOLUTION:
    Opentype and Glyphs panels…

  18. Option to disable centre point on text box

    With Area Type, if I use the text tool to highlight a word (for example, if I want to embolden the word), if I catch the centre point of the text box in the wrong way, Illustrator will assume that I want to create a new text box, which I don't. I know I can manually disable the centre point via the Attributes panel, but I need to set the centre point to OFF by default, and to my knowledge there is no way of doing this.

  19. Please add Illustrator option to maintain text color

    Could you please add an option for us to keep the color we chose for the text in an illustrator file we're currently working on?

    Meaning: Say I am writing text in a file, but I want separate text boxes and I want to keep the same color, rather than Illustrator defaulting back to black or whatever color was set as default in the preferences.

    I'd like to be able to check a box to keep the color I am using for the text rather than having to go back to the color and subsequently the default sizes set in…

  20. Auto synchronised text boxes for copy

    Have two or more separate text boxes synchronise to the same text when either one is edited.

    When creating numerous different sized online banner advertisements, each with multiple copy variations, it would be beneficial if I could synchronise the copy of one across all creative versions.
