  1. Make Drawing Guides Thicker

    With the onset of 4K & 5K monitors, the red dotted guides have become incredibly hard to see. I would like to suggest that the guides be made thicker or that there be a way for me to increase their thicknesses in settings so they can be seen better.

  4. Restricted Scroll

    I'd love if there was a key we could hold down to restrict the hand tool to only scroll perfectly vertical or horizontal. Would make it easier to develop for web - you could quickly get a sense of how a site would work when the user scrolls.

  5. Retain length of handles when modifying curves and length of path when moving anchor points.

    I'd love an option to retain the length of a handle for an anchor point. It would be nice to keep the curvature equal on both sides of an anchor point. There are many times I would have liked this option to create symmetrical graphics.

    Similarly, I'd also like the option to retain the length of a path when moving an anchor point. Sometimes I use lines/paths as arms of characters. If I need to change the position of an arm there ends up being a lot of guess work modifying the path.

  6. Merge anchor points

    I'd like an option to merge two anchor points into one on a shape/path. This would make cleaner paths and objects.

  7. Illustrator Zeichenflächen

    Es wäre wünschenswert, mehrere Zeichenflächen gleichzeitig markieren zu können. Außerdem mehrere ausgewählte zeichenflächen gleichzeitig verschieben zu können oder über das Ausrichten Werkzeug oder Koordinaten organisieren zu können.

  9. One time payment for package or product

    This goes for all Adobe Products. I mostly use Illustrator. Bringing back a bundle, one time collection or individual services; one time payment instead of monthly.

  11. Swatches retain values when changing document color mode

    What's the point in having swatches if their values are automatically changed when the document's color mode is changed? For example, if you have a yellow built out as 0/12/100/0 as a global CMYK swatch, then you change your document to RGB, then back to CMYK, the color values within the swatch change to 1.62/11.07/100. The same thing happens when I have a RGB swatch in an RGB file, convert to CMYK, then convert back.

    And to make matters worse, If you have an .ase palette open and you try to fix the object's color, it will give you a…

  13. Change arrow cursor back to how it used to be.

    I would VERY much like to be able to change the arrow cursor style back to how it was prior to the most recent update. I do not like the arrows no longer having a handle; perhaps I'm irrational, but it's really throwing me and disrupting my workflow.

  14. Import all pages at once from PDF file (that doesn't have illustrator embeded)

    I'm working at prepress for 20 years.. and verrrry often i need to open PDF files to correct some mistakes on many pages.. (like add bleed, or move all elements away from edges...

    it would be cool if illustrator would allow to open all pages at once for multipage PDF files..

    Ok, i know that i can edit page by page... or i can open one page, than save as with different name AI file, than open all other pages and copy content to that first saved AI document... but thats not cool for 8 page brochure..

    thank you

  15. Make Illustrator multi threaded on CPU

    Illustrator performance is awful, its slow and lumbering at all but the most basic operations. It is bound to only a single cpu thread which is ridiculous now in an age of multi core and multi thread CPU's and it has been this way for many years. It cannot handle background tasks and is completely out of parity in function and performance with other Adobe software such as photoshop and inDesign.

    Planned  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    This is on our roadmap for 2018. We are making improvements in gradients area, and the story of picking colors using Eyedropper for use on a gradient stop is part of it.

    Thanks,

  17. Ilustrator needs to have the option to use Animated Zoom in Outline Mode

    When you switch to outline mode (Ctrl-Y) you immediately go back to the outdated and incredibly frustrating marquee-zoom tool instead of the new and much more efficient Animated Zoom tool to click and drag to zoom. Incredible program, but this is by far one of the most annoying and "I-want-to-rip-my-hair-out" features.

  18. Illustrator - Align

    The Align tools in all Adobe programs is a wonderful feature. However, in Illustrator when you Align objects it changes the position of ALL of them. In other programs, it tends to be the last object you select takes the dominant position - aligning all others to it. In Illustrator it doesn't seem to matter the order you select, it just aligns it to the nearest center point (thus moving ALL the objects). The Lock feature doesn't help as you cannot select a locked object to align with/to.

  19. Make the relink on open actually work

    Try using free software like blender to relink artwork/source files. It actually works! Why don't you try implementing something like this instead of making us all relink everything. This really is shoddy!!!!!
