  2. Reduce / Extend path effect

    Like in After Effects, it would be very useful to have an effect or an option in the Stroke panel like the "reduce path" animation option to draw more complex strokes (instead of duplicate them), like in the RubberHose plug-in. Could be useful to draw characters or set up files to export to AE.
    Thanks.

  3. Window Menu shows active panels as checked names but does not indicate panels that are tabbed in a group. Maybe add gray checks?

    Window Menu shows active panel as checked names but does not indicate those that are tabbed in a group. Maybe if we put a grayed out check next to tabbed panels? So that the unchecked are obviously panels not activated at all.

  4. Illustrator Panel keeps resizing its width when changing to another tabbed panel.

    Illustrator Panel keeps resizing its width when changing to another tabbed panel, unlike in Photoshop. Can't you make this stop? It's been around for years. Very irritating. I usually don't put any panels underneath my Layer Panel so there is nothing there to keep it from resizing. Why do we have to put up with this? Photoshop interface is more relaxing. Why can't it be the same for Illustrator?

  5. Randomize shape effect

    I would love a tool like "Roughen" that instead gives the shape a randomized, slightly affected path to give a more hand-drawn feel. There is a VERY small window with Roughen, that kind of gives this effect, before it gives a "spiked" appearance, but a tool to specifically randomize a "hand drawn" look would be nice.

  6. Montserrat Semibold has problems syncing

    The Montserrat font is experiencing synchronization issues, even though it is installed in Creative Cloud. It disconnects every time, while the other fonts remain normal. Please check the bug.

    In the screenshot I am sending, you can notice that the Montserrat Semibold font is not appearing.

  7. Share for Review Notifications

    It would be amazing if a "notification" could be added to the "Share for Review" feature. I am having to update the link and also send an update email to my clients and collabs. Thank you!!

  9. Dropdown menu for alignment to specific artboards

    I work with multiple artboards files every day and I constantly use the align tool to align to what I think is the artboard I have highlighted, only for it to jump to a different board. It would be awesome if you could click and hold for a menu to dropdown and then select the artboard to align that item to.

    No longer can copy, the copy in a text box and paste it outside of illustrator I would like to see this fixed. Should be able to copy and paste it to any file if it is text and paste it elsewhere. It currently brings it over like an image

  12. Please stop removing features from Beta that are available in regular.

    The arc tool needs better features that are in the non-beta version but for some stupid reason are removed from beta in order to make things harder and less functionable. For example, I can't see the properties of an arc I've drawn, or convert a path to an arc. BUT, if I were NOT USING BETA, then I'd be able to.

    I'm learning this software, and keep asking Google Bard for instructions, and have great information, only to find out that features were removed or slimmed down in Beta, giving you less function. WHY?! Isn't the point of Beta to…

  13. Able to edit class prefix at export SVG (st0,st1...)

    This issue is very common when you import to html two or more svg files and the last svg overwrites the class of the previous svg inserted, due that uses same name of class.

    The solve is able to edit a prefix on export options window, that can edit for each file to set an unique prefix to get e.g.: st0, st1 and foo0, foo1 in each.

  14. Allow users to change the default Area Type Options

    I prefer to have 'x Height' as a First Baseline, instead of current default 'Ascent'.

    I assume other users would like to change something else, like having 'Auto Size' always enabled from the beginning, or have a different vertical alignment (when will you rename it from the wrong 'Horizontal' to the correct 'Vertical'?! — vote here: http://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447/suggestions/45711817)

    I tried different ways to make these parameters hold — updating Paragraph styles, changing document profiles... it always defaults to these.

  15. Teatarea resizing and font scalling

    Resizing textareas is such a pain when using the transform window and typing precise dimensions. If I type in the dimension I want the textarea to be, it distorts the font and I have to change it back to the correct font size and horizontal scale. so annoying when you have many text elements on the page and are working out layouts.

    This behaviour doesn't happen if you change the dimensions by dragging the boundaries however.

    if would be great for text areas to have an option to not scale the font when resizing. like you already can with stroke…

  17. Batch convert to AI format

    I would appreciate a way to batch convert multiple vector files (eps, svg, etc.) to .ai format.
    I get a lot of eps files, and I would like to convert them to Illustrator files all at once without having to open them individually and saving them one at a time. I thought this used to be possible in Bridge, but I can't find anyone else who remembers this.
    Thank you!

  18. Version history to log a new version upon opening old file

    As of now, Version History deletes old versions after 30 days unless it was marked manually, which is fine and makes sense. However, as you open a more-than-30-days-old file that was not marked and you modify it beyond your History limit, there is no way you can revert back to the original file, at least if you have the autosave enabled, which is to be expected.

    I therefore suggest to automatically log a version as you open a file that didn't contain any (more than 30 days old...)

  19. PDF import: Improve gradient parser compatibility

    Currently, Illustrator apparently doesn't support all "types" of gradients present in a PDF. When trying to open the attached PDF, an error occurs and the gradient is rasterized.

    However, it opens normally in other programs such as Scribus. I thought it was a limitation of the PDF producer (Inkscape), but maybe not. Please, see the discussion: https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inbox/-/issues/9185

    Therefore, I ask Adobe to investigate the case and, if it is a limitation of Illustrator, to implement support for this "type" of gradient for better interoperability of the PDF parser.

  20. Trim view - Toggle separately guides and grid visibility

    Make the option possible to toggle visibility guides and grids as needed by the user Now, the option to show them is greyed out.

    Ideally, I'd like to be able to toggle them separately
