  1. Align to bleed

    Have an align to bleed option, anything going to print generally has a 3mm bleed and it would be handy to bet things to align to this instead of the edge of the artboard.

  3. 맥 버전에서도 윈도우버전과 같은 단축키를 쓸 수 있게 부탁드립니다.

    윈도우 버전에서는 알트 키를 이용해 메뉴에 접근하고 주요 메뉴는 연속된 키 입력으로 접근이 가능합니다. 예를 들어 문자 전체 선택을 하기 위해서는 알트 sop를 누르면 됩니다. 이러한 방법이 맥 버전에서는 불가능해 너무 불편합니다. 동일한 방식으로 단축키를 사용할 수 있도록 업데이트 부탁드립니다.

  4. 한국어로도 단축키가 되도록 부탁합니다.

    한국어 버전으로 작업을 할 때 언어가 한국어로 선택되어 있으면 단축키가 작동하지 않습니다. 다른 어도비 프로그램 중에는 한국어로도 단축키를 설정할 수 있는 것이 있습니다. 일러스트레이터도 한국어로 지정되어 있을 때도 단축키가 적용될 수 있길 부탁드립니다.

  5. We need consistency between Adobe programs.

    When are we going to get consistency between Adobe programs?

    Some examples:

    • Resizing in Photoshop and Illustrator: one requires SHIFT to retain proportions, one doesn't

    • Clicking the Fill/Stroke colour in Photoshop and Illustrator: one requires double clicking, one doesn't

  6. Keeping corner points while dragging an arc.

    When I have an arc that has a corner point at one end, dragging the arc changes the line to an unwanted shape even when "Constrain Path Dragging" is turned on in settings. I ALWAYS need those corner points to remain corner points.

    I suggest using the SHIFT key to keep them as corners.

    Many versions ago (late 80s, early 90s), corner points always remained corner points, and I liked it that way very much!! : ) It made my job so much easier. Since then paths have been a real hassle.

  7. Cut-off of Effects like Drop Shadow etc

    Working with Flexo plates, we need to cut-off vignettes at 3%, it would be great to have an 'Advanced' section on effects like Drop Shadow to cut off at a stated percentage. Currently have to work around by Expanding the effect, exporting an the image for Photoshop, using the Curves to cut-off of 3%, then relinking the image in Illustrator which also means having multiple files...

  8. LTR Digits for Middle East Settings

    In Arabic text, letters are RTL, but digits are LTR. There's no way to use multiple character styles within one paragraph, you can only set the text direction to the entire paragraph. To make the attached, I had to set the language of the digits to English and type the number in backwards (e.g. for 300g, I have typed it in as 003 for it to show like that, which requires a lot of concentration!!)

  10. Make Appearance work for Type objects

    More specifically, with type objects, the Appearce palette just says 'Characters', without reflecting the current stroke and fill state of the object. New stroke and fill have to be added to make the Appearance palette useful.

  13. Make Illustrator understand the Mask component of SVGs.

    When importing SVGs into Illustrator, the application does not seem to be able to interpret the native SVG masks used. Attached are two SVGs. One is the original one, and the other which ends with "illustratorfromsvg" is how the SVG looks in illustrator.
    You can open both in your web browser. Notice how the hair of the woman in the SVG that's been opened in illustrator does not cover her shoulders. If you look at the original SVG you can see how the hair is supposed to "mask" her shoulders.
    I have explained this more thoroughly in this…

  14. artwork over canvas isolation toggle

    Toggle function that changes the view between showing all artwork in a drawing, and only showing everything that is actually over the canvas. basically, a quick and easy toggle to see what an exported pdf would look like. Exactly like the toggle built into InDesign (toggled by "w").

  15. Resize Images Shortcut

    When resizing images or objects, there should be a way to constantly have things stay proportionate without having to hold down shift the entire time. I would suggest the caps lock key since it carries the same function when typing out letters.

  16. Give aligning options for Text on Path tool.

    When using the Text on Path tool, it would be nice to have alignment/distribution options.
    Aligning the first and last letter, center at top or bottom, and fit text around a shape.
    They way it is now, you have to drop guides and align and distribute the text so that it is even.
    It would be wonderful also to use the dropper tool to apply the alignment to new text. For instance, if I have an emblem and need to wrap several different texts around it, then once I have one the way I like I could easily apply that…

  17. Layers and rotate to original gesture in touch mode

    Layers would speed up to workflow when you don't have to switch workspaces so often.

    Tap or rotate gesture for rotate to original view would also speed up the workflow.

  18. Restoring the CAD tree-view when importing DXF files.

    Before version 25.1, when importing DXF files created with a CAD software (Solid Edge), each part of an assembly was recognized by Illustrator (1 part = 1 layer).
    This is not the case anymore since version 25.1. The last version in which it works is version 25.0.1

  19. Keyboard shortcut for group selection tool

    "A" gives us the direct selection tool Could we have a keyboard shortcut for the group selection tool please? (Or press A a second time, toggling between the two selectors?). Many thanks.

  20. Bring back colour themes!

    Colour themes within Illustrator was awesome! Why remove it, it's terrible in the CC app, and slows down workflow.

    It was a nice try, but cut the loss, bring colour themes back and kill it in the stupid CC app (also, kill the CC app, it's useless).
