Illustrator (Desktop) Feature Requests

When entering a new feature request, please provide:

  1. Description
  2. Why is this valuable to you?
  • Hot ideas
  • Top ideas
  • New ideas
  • My feedback
  1. Please print "User Guides" books again. You do not need to constantly update them:

    Physical "User Guide" books were far more quicker and easier to use to get answers to questions on how to use Adobe Illustrator. The book form could come out ever two years at most, including new updates, when it reaches a certain amount of pages, start a new volume. If you already have this online, or in a PDF format, please let me know where I can find it on your website and if you do have it online, does it have an "index" to look items up? Or just a search window? Thank you.

  3. Make the steps in the tutorial match the actual steps a person would take to achieve the finished product.

    The steps described in the tutorials do not match the actual steps taken in order to achieve the end product. My guess is this is to frustrate those who take advantage of the 7-day free trial into purchasing the monthly or yearly subscription. I think that stinks. How can a person judge whether or not they want to subscribe to the monthly or yearly plan if they can't even manage the tutorials? If your user menus have changed within the application, then the tutorials need to be updated to reflect this.

  5. Illustrator CC 2018 download support

    Hello, I used to use Illustrator CC 2018 on my work computer. It was having trouble opening AI and PDF files. I uninstalled the program and now I can't even install it back on the computer due to the program no longer being supported for download. 2018 was only 2 years ago. This is a huge problem for your users. Maybe have some kind of warning or do the right thing and offer support for programs older than 2 years.

  7. Will Adobe please consider student discounts per semester rather than per year during covid19 this Fall?

    Thanks, Adobe for providing students free access to software to those Universities who use your product in the labs. This was a lifesaver for the students and demonstrates Adobe's commitment to education. We are in the process of setting up safety measures for fall in efforts to curtail spreading the coronavirus, which includes splitting the class size for social distancing, some students may work from home. This would require the students to have access to the software. I teach a software course (Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign) which includes Studio Arts Ceramics/Wood/Sculpture, etc students who will not need access to the software…

  8. Have a panel that shows info and keyboard modifiers for the current tool

    All Adobe applications are quite complex beasts, and what all the tools do and particularly what holding different modifiers or keys do can be quite arcane.

    I imagine a panel you can have open on the side, and it will show information and the modifier options for the currently active tool.

    For instance for the Star tool, it can say what Shift, Option and Command keys do, and that you can press Arrow Up and Arrow Down to increase the number of points as you drag.

    Pro users can keep the panel closed, but it can really help new users…

  9. Please add grammar and spelling checker and correction option

    Please add grammar and spelling checker and correction options. I have lost a lot of money on printing just due to spelling minor mistake which made my all printing expenses to garbage.

  10. INTERACTIVE, HANDS-ON TUTORIALS IN ALL ADOBE APPLICATIONS

    Please create hands-on tutorials INSIDE the application. There used to be FUN AND INTERACTIVE Tutorials in ALL the Adobe application (such as make an icon).

    It really helped me learn illustrator quickly and effectively as I did the work. I was able to follow the instructions and actually remember them. It was a fantastic idea. what happened?
    Now I have to watch boring videos on the Adobe website that teach me nothing as they are not interactive and listening to the guy is so boring I hate it. Also switching from the website to the Adobe application to try the…

  11. Better Customer Care

    How about better customer follow up?

    I've had4 on-line tech support "episodes" over MANY, MANY hours, only to have the tech tell me nothing is wrong with Illustrator. I've asked to escalate the case with a follow up call from Senior Support TWICE (See attachments). We agreed on a call back time/day/number and I have not had any follow up from Adobe.

    Please get your act together! From what I've been reading on line, people's patience is running thin.

    Adobe! Are you listening?

  16. Have a clear path to turn off tool tips/ rich tool tips and tours

    I appreciate you want to make your software more accessible but these features ruin the pro-user experience add better control over libraries while your at it I should be able to disable libraries once and globally.

  17. Please create hands-on tutorials inside application same as in AfterEffects

    AfterEffects has hands-on tutorials inside the application where user can learn and practice side-by-side simultaneously. Very useful and effective to have. Please create the same resources for Illustrator.

  18. Escape trying out a new feature

    Let me escape trying out a new feature you want me to try, because I don't want to try it. Give me an X. Give me a "close."

  19. This feedback/bug reporting systems is super confusing.

    This feedback/bug reporting systems is super confusing. I have given up on reporting bugs or providing feedback so many times, cause I land here and I can't manage.
    I want to report a bug, it tells me to "post my idea". But I want to report a bug, not give an idea! I change sections to make sure I'm on the Bugs, still get "ideas" everywhere. If I try to give feedback I get "request feature", again, not what I want to do... That search box that changes to a form and back to a search box... If I want…

  20. Let's add Vasily Hall's name to the Ai credits?

    Copied from : https://forums.adobeprerelease.com/illustratorpr/discussion/1507/lets-add-vasily-halls-name-to-the-ai-credits

    As you may be aware, Illustrator has a natively build CSV-import feature for variables now. This wouldn't have come if Vasily didn't undertake the effort to create this feature as a script, 3 years prior. https://github.com/Silly-V/Adobe-Illustrator/blob/master/Variable Importer/VariableImporter.jsx

    His contribution was:
    1. User research, connecting with users from all over the world to get a sense of whether anyone even wants to import CSV files and use graph variables.
    2. Naming convention syntax for visibility and graph variables.
    3. Logical mechanism for adding individual graph states within CSV record cells.
    4. A multitude of LinkedIn articles (…
