  2. Make Properties panel to have the same width as other panels

    Properties is the widest panel among other panels in Illustrator.
    While other panels by default have the same width (and some are resizable), Properties is too wide.

    It gets specifically disgusting whet it get stacked with other panels — they have to conform the minimal width of Properties and start looking ugly.

    At the same time, the main content of Properties does not look like it needs all that minimal width — there is a huge gap on the right visible in 'properties_1.png' attached.

    Sure, when you have some art selected, it look differently, like in 'properties2.png'... but look

  3. Searching brushes and other tools by their name in their tab would be great

    I am saving all my brushes and patterns into my Print.ai file (am I supposed to do that?) and now it grew up to 100 MB.
    With that many brushes, many of them also similar, a search brush by name feature perhaps would be helpful.

  4. Add separation preview toggle to Share for Review

    When SHARE FOR REVIEW with a stake holder
    Since it is basically a PDF, it would be nice if there was a way to toggle of the separations, especially if it is a spot color only set up and separations are important? or process and a spot color? Is this possible

  5. Share for review | When sharing a second document it took over the first documents link including all comments etc.

    The share feature is confusing when you have multiple Ai documents to share. I had one document already out to share and then I was working on another document and tried to share that one and somehow it took over the first share link and now all the comments are showing on another document. There needs to be an easier way to manage shared links and link the share button to the current tab/project that is open.

  6. Hold Cmd/Ctrl key while drawing with Pencil to temporarily toggle the auto-joining

    Recently Illustrator finally allowed to stop Pencil from auto-joining with the dedicated 'Close paths when ends are within a set tolerance' option in Pencil Tool Options (https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/931888/suggestions/41727652)

    However, sometimes this behaviour is welcome, and the decision to use it can be made on the go, while drawing. It’s not efficient to go to settings each time and toggle it.

    I propose to utilize Cmd/Ctrl modifier key (while the mouse button is held / pen is pressed) to temporarily toggle the chosen behaviour — force join if it’s off, or forbid join if it’s on.

  7. Rotating objects difficult with 5K monitor

    On smallish objects, I have to zoom in way too far before the rotate handles show up on an object. It was annoying on the 4k monitor. On the 5k monitor it is more than annoying – it's a disruption. (200% zoom on and 1920px artboard) for a 10px object.

  8. Control panel like that of Indesign

    I've always liked Indesign, especially its control panel top bar.

    I was wondering but is it not possible to have a control bar in Illustrator like the one in Indesign?
    - bigger
    - With More controls
    - Dynamics
    - By inserting quick links to many features that Illustrator makes available to us but every time you have to go and get them from the menus / submenus and you never remember where to go.
    guy:
    - object / path / path path
    - object / path / offset
    - object / path / add points
    - object / weave
    -…

  9. Resize Canvas after file creation

    After a canvas and artboard are created, I'm unable to include a new artboard without creating a new document with a larger canvas to fit the second artboard
    Simple feature of just being able to resize the canvas in the artboard settings
    Or have it automatically dynamic based on artboard requirements

  11. Numbered List - Choose at which number we wish to start the list.

    Hi, It would be great if we could rearrange the order of lists for Numbered List options.

    You choose which "Levels" the numbering is but what if under that you would have the option to select at which number to start, 2...3...4 or whatever number we wish to insert.

  14. Invite to Edit is just a fancy sharing - we need real-time!

    As much as I can understand some people using this ping-pong type of editing what we NEED is a real-time editing.

    It will require a decent internet connection for complex files but passing a cursor position and filter-tagged vectors with 5 digit float is not THAT heavy. Splice it into layers/chunks for performance, make it buffer from a local machine and maintain the connection to a fast CDN passing the file for both sides. If we can have cloud gaming stations why can't we have something truly excellent from Adobe?

  15. Spot Colors Change the name to JPG

    It would be nice if you could change the spot color names in inserted images (JPG, PNG...) without going through Photoshop.

  16. Font unit change Adobe Illustrator

    Unfortunately, you have to laboriously change the font unit from e.g. pt to mm and vice versa in the presets.
    A switch in the character panel would be desirable.
    You can also change the letter height there. Here, however, the mm specification is required in most cases.
    However, we use this function to quickly check the font height in mm.
    We would welcome a feature expansion.

  17. All bounding boxes always visible

    An option to show all bounding boxes would be useful. Currently, only the selected object is displayed with a "border". This would help to locate specific objects that are sometimes hard to see. It could look similar to how it looks after using the "select all" option. Probably the problem then would be to highlight the actually selected item. But it could be quick to switch on/off, or it could be in a different e.g. slightly simplified form (compared to "select all")

  18. New layer ordering

    Would LOVE a "preference" option to choose whether your new layers/artboards appear above the existing layers/artboards or below them.

  20. Illustrator Version History Panel for Synced Files

    It would be nice if the Version History Panel within Illustrator also showed the History for Items locally saved and synced via Creative Cloud Files. The information and abilities are there when you view the file via the Creative Cloud Files Web page so it would just be a matter of the panel bringing in that information to the Panel from the website. It would be helpful to have that info locally within Illustrator instead of having to go out to a webpage in a browser.
