  1. I wish '□Scrubby Zoom' would work individually when zooming in and out in Photoshop and Illustrator.

    I wish '□Scrubby Zoom' would work individually when zooming in and out in Photoshop and Illustrator.
    When enlarging the screen, it is convenient to disable ‘□Scrubby Zoom’.
    When zooming out the screen, it is convenient to check '▣Scrubby Zoom'.
    I found it convenient because I didn't have to click multiple times to zoom out.

  2. 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…

  3. Clear guides should delete guides in transparency masks too

    Just took me ages to work out why i couldnt remove guides from a file and discovered they existed only within various transparency masks and had to go through each mask individually to remove them. Clear guides feature should remove those too, surely?!

  4. 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.

  5. Changing 'Screen Mode' forgets where the window was located

    In Photoshop you can use the F key to cycle through screen modes: Standard, Full Screen + Menu Bar, and Full Screen. This works as intended.

    In Illustrator however, when you cycle through screen modes it will forget where your window was previously positioned. Instead, it defaults to taking up the entire screen. This is a bug.

  6. When rotating an object, add a hotkey that allows the user to explicitly enter the rotation angle.

    When rotating an object, I can see the rotation angle and I have to struggle to get the rotation to align perfectly to an exact angle. While I can do this with the rotate tool, it's frustrating to see the rotation almost where I need it, but having to undo, select the rotation tool, set the angle, etc.

    If there was a hotkey while rotating, like say, Ctrl... a small text box would appear in place of the angle and I could just manually enter the angle with the previous rotation angle as a default, I think that could save…

  7. Live align

    1. With this live align feature, you could have two objects maintain their alignment properties even if you change one of the objects. For example, if you have a rectangle and text inside it. You should be able to align the text to the rectangle. Later, when you change the text or change the rectangle, it should keep the alignment settings persistent. So, if you made the rectangle longer, the text would remain centered on the longer rectangle.

    2. I center objects within groups all the time. As far as I know, there is no way to make changes to objects and…

  9. Allow Shape Builder to close edited path, but keep the one below opened

    Hi there!
    So, the thing is that - when I have 2 intersecting open filled paths, I really want to remove the outside path of one path using Shape Builder tool. But I want the second path to stay open. and the first path to become closed.

    It may sound as a picky request. But I struggle with this issue everyday, like, 20+ times.

  11. Don't reset view rotation when pressing Escape

    When you are in a rotated view, pressing Escape resets the rotation to zero degrees. This is frustrating when you're merely trying to exit Object Isolation or exit text editing.

    There does not seem to be a Keyboard Shortcut for this operation, which I would expect to see.

  12. Please allow image tracing of individual colours to individual layers rather than 16 million objects.

    Being able to trace one colour to one layer would make laser cutting so much easier. e.g. 16 colours to 16 layers

  13. Restore pressing Ctrl + Alt + Enter in Transform’s Width and Height fields to constrain proportions AND copy at the same time

    I thought I could explain this feature only with a video. Even though it was difficult and I took risks, I was able to prepare it by finding a portable CS 11 version.

    I want this feature back for Transform Palette. Because they destroyed it or forgot about it or no one knows about it.

    Masking like InDesign. It's valuable since I don't have to choose to Mask the image, it automatically places it in a mask like InDesign does

  16. Move document tabs under cursor when closing documents

    When closing multiple document tabs using the X button on the side of the tab, the next document will move under the cursor. However, the tab size changes based on window size, filename length, etc. A better way would be to resize tab length after the cursor is moved away. The result would be that if you close Tab 1, Tab 2 would slide over and the X button would appear under the cursor. Many tabs could be easily closed without moving the cursor.

    An example of software that uses this UI is Safari on Mac. Chrome does it too,…

  17. Dimension tool improvements

    The dimension tool is a really helpful thing but some improvements would be appreciated.

    • As stated in other posts, please include the possibility to add user defined scalings, including decimal numbers like 1:1.5 and other ones, like 1:15.

    • According to ISO standards, the dimension text should sit above the lines, as viewed from the right. This would be a great option, because at this moment I don't use this tool regularly because of this.

    • When dimensions are too small, there should be an option to move the text away, either to the right or the left. Of course this can…

  20. Pattern Editing Mode - Add options copies 1x2 2x1 and 2x2 - Disable Thumbnail - Performance Enhancements

    For more complicated patterns, 3x3 is too many copies to at least visualize how something tiles. If it's a brick, 1x2 or 2x1 would even be helpful, but at least 2x2 so you can see all seams.

    Please create an option to disable the preview thumbnail in pattern editing mode. The thumbnail redraws for every edit, so more complicated patterns not only have to redraw on screen, but also create a miniature version. Hopefully those previews are images but if not, may be causing further issues when scaling down vectors.

    Would it be possible to make a draft quality preview…
