  1. Scale with constrained proportions

    Give me a key combo with the scale tool to constrain proportions.

    The diagonal motion doesn't cut it. I'm doing very detailed work and there is no indicator if the proportions are actually locked or not. Very frustrating.

  2. Illustrator de sistemas operacionais mais antigo

    A Adobe através do Creative deveria manter atualizações do Illustrator de sistemas operacionais mais antigo. Meu caso tenho iMac 2011 com o macOs High Sierra 10.13.6 e não consigo atualizar o 24.0, pois, o Creative só atualiza do Catalina pra frente. Tenho certeza que a Adobe deva repensar. Pois é uma frustração de assinante de décadas.

  3. Export for screens missing modern features in order to be useful for responsive images on the web in 2022

    It's 2022 and responsive images on the web are well supported across all browsers.

    Export for Screens is close to being a good tool for this, but missing out on a few smaller but critical needs for modern responsive web (by priority):
    1. Customize ppi in combination with width / height / scale Formats exports
    2. Support for moderne formats: webp, avif and near future jpegXL

    And not really a export only feature, but:
    3. Be able to override antialiasing export settings per layer so text and artwork can be applied different antialiasing during export

    Note: Typical answer to several…

  4. Export for screens missing slice selection feature from Save for Web

    Export for Screens seems to be missing a few things to be able to replace Save for Web (Legacy), which is a strong limitation since Export for screens have features Save for web doesn't: Support for exporting multiple scales / resolutions , which is a must in 2022 with responsive images on the web.

    One area it is lacking in is support for slices (by priority):
    1. Be able to export only a selected slice
    2. Be able to split up export for screens based on slices

  6. Passwords to lock layers.

    I create different types of art, and a problem that has occurred with my suppliers is that they move the art to move it and have access to edit the layers, even unintentionally or intentionally. Being able to password lock the layers for editing would solve this. And it's no use using the PDF, it must be the .AI or .EPS.

  7. Auto-fill file name in search bar when re-linking / replacing missing links

    The process of replacing missing links could be less tedious if Illustrator would auto-fill the name of the file in the search bar of the file browser. For me, it is often easier to perform a search for the file name rather than navigating through multiple depths of folders. An option to auto-fill the file name rather than manually typing it would make this regular task much smoother.

    I regularly collaborate with other designers and am constantly re-linking files when someone else has created or edited the design file or when projects are re-organized. So the task of replacing missing…

  8. Add option to scale point type from the baseline, rather than bounding box

    It would be really useful to be able to scale text from the baseline - often I have text positioned in a layout and want to resize it, but as it scales from the bounding box it then requires lining up again.

    I'd suggest a tool that allows the user to scale from the text baseline. for multiline text there would probably need to be a way of selecting which line to scale from - maybe a first / last line toggle, and an option of placing a cursor and that would be the line to scale from?

    I know…

  9. Ability to change canvas color to any greyscale value

    Ability to change background behind art board to any greyscale that works for old tired eyes, independent of the interface setting. I prefer a dark interface with a white art board but a light gray background.

  10. Apply colour mode to different artboards

    It would be great to have a feature where we can change colour modes for different artboards. This is extremely helpful in today's digital world, where we are working on Brand Identity design that involves the use of logo and colour palette extensively in print and digital media. This will help keep one master file for an extensive brand identity work and makes it easy to compare between CMYK and RGB colours/designs.

  11. Add compatibility of .rul files

    Often for work I receive .dxf models with the related .rul developments, so I would need compatibility with .rul files to be able to work,

  12. Create custom blank document presets tab on new document screen.

    I think it would greatly increase workflow to give the user the ability to set up custom blank document preset tabs on the New Document screen and then allowing the user to save their template/s of choice under their new tab.
    As an example, I am constantly using the same templates in my company, so having the ability to create a preset tab where I could see only the presets/templates I use for that would be awesome. And then I could have another tab devoted to just my personal presets/templates, without having to navigate to the templates folder.

  13. Type in stroke width value instead of pull down menu in Character styles

    In Character Styles the stroke width only provides a pull down menu to choose from. It would be better if we could type in an exact value.
    The stroke width of texts needs to be very precise in my work, but the pull down menu is too limited to provide an accurate enough value. (The gaps between available options in the menu are too big.)

    When I create a new character style by selecting text and adding a new style, the style contains the correct stroke width. But when I need to adjust the width afterwards I can only pick…

  14. simplify color picker

    Instead of the fill/stroke toggle, split each swatch diagonally. Top left is stroke, bottom right is fill. One click instead of (so frequently) two, and no more unintentionally filling when you meant to stroke..

  16. Preview of artboard before project starts

    Please allow for us to see a preview of the new project we are starting. When we set the dimensions or pick a preset dimensions, we can only see those grey outlined pictures. With this new feature, we would be able to see a "sample" of what our artboard is going to look like as a blank white canvas. It's basically a preview of the artboard before we officially start the project. Especially if we are typing in custom dimensions rather than choosing the set dimensions Adobe has already. Thank you guys :)

  17. Hitting Alt+Down does not open dropdown lists

    I expect Alt+Down to drop down focused lists with options inside, like Font Family / Style, Stroke Weight, etc.

    Sure, I understand it might conflict with duplicating, but in fact no, since Ai does not duplicate when a field is focused anyway. At the same time, it’s a common and expected behaviour in other applications.

  18. zoom in view rotation not centered

    After rotating the canvas (view), the action of zooming in and out becomes kind of misaligned.

    Generally, when I zoom in/out with an option (alt) key using a scroller on my mouse, the zooming is centered with the current cursor position. When the canvas is rotated, it goes somewhere else.

    (I suppose, it's an opposite direction. The same bug happens when clicking, for example, left arrow to move an object but it goes to the right in a 180 degree flipped view).

  19. ライブトレースのまま線幅ツールを使いたい

    現状ではライブペイントを適用したオブジェクトの線幅に強弱をつける際、現在はライブペイントを拡張して線幅ツールを使用するか、線のパスのみを前面にコピペして作業する必要があります。
    ライブペイントを崩さずに、線幅を変えられたらかなり強力なツールになると思います。

  20. Please show document name in full screen mode too

    When in Full Screen mode (MacOS), the top bar shows 'Adobe Illustrator 2022', but not the name of the document (which is much more relevant ;-)
    please show the document name.
