  1. Please match Swatches to Document Color Mode

    When creating a new document in RGB mode,
    the default Black Swatch is not black....

    Please repair that. It's so annoying to have to change that manually each time.

  2. Increase maximum Keyboard increment for cursor keys

    Keyboard increment Preference is maxed to 1296...

    I need 1920 at least. Why not make it as big as the max artboard size?

  3. Show Smart guides when using Curvature Tool

    When using the curvature tool to creat a symmetric curve, it would be nice when smart guides (to the center) are shown.

  4. Edit Global Swatch directly via Color Picker

    Currently a multi-step process to update a Global swatch using Color Picker. Change a swatch via color picker then drag the active color swatch that’s at the top of the swatches panel down into the panel and from there that color can be dragged over a global swatch to update it. Better: just double click whilst in Global swatch and use color picker. Currently can only use sliders whilst in a Global swatch.

  5. Make smart guides stop working with Ctrl key pressed, as in Photoshop and InDesign

    The function of disabling smart guides by pressing the Ctrl key in Photoshop and InDesign, allows you to adjust the position of an object more accurately without having to go to the menu to disable them.

  6. Rearrange artboards on canvas accordingly to their order in the Artboards panel

    If you use artboards to have pages, swapping wo of them could be a nightmare.
    So:
    1. Allow Ai to rearrange artboards on canvas as the order of items in Artboards panel suggests
    2. Add Swap Selected artboards maybe, when exactly two artboards are selected

  7. Absolute mode that always sets a fill a single click and stroke with the Alt+click/right click

    Setting a color for fill and stroke depends on what is 'active' in the toolbox. This is a relative mode mode and it's unique for Adobe apps (and their imitators/imitators).

    What about giving a direct way of setting fill/stroke, without remembering which is in focus now? somewhat like Corel Draw does?
    Give us an option to be able to set a fill with a single click, and a stroke with the Alt+click (and additionally bringing it to focus), or right click.

  8. Airbrush features

    It would really open up Illustrator to a brand new superior level for not just technical illustrator artists, but other artists that would like to see their drawings in a vectorize art form where they could really explore blending and shadings, instead of just typically relying on pixalated, or rasterized form to perfect their drawings. I fully believed in the potential power of vectorizes art being taking it to another level for artists that can draw freely with their hands. Illustrator’s appeal to hobbyists, Graffiti artist, Caricaturists, and other individual form of artist that specializes in different genres have been…

  9. Paste in multiple layers

    I'd like to paste on multiple layers simultaneously - e.g. copy someting, select certain layers, ctrl + alt + v pastes it on all selected layers -> that would be helpful for multi-language files.

  11. Switch to Eyedropper while editing text

    While editing text, we often need to grab the Eyedropper tool to pick some formatting or color for the selected range from another object. An instinct whispers 'Press I key' — and it obviously but often unexpectedly replaces the range with the 'I'. Undo!
    Then me might think of pressing Alt — and it does temporarily switch to Pan — which is cool and useful, since you can’t hit space.
    We need a modifier to temporarily switch to Eydropper.

    ...but all modifiers are taken (except fort Ctrl+Shift, which swithes input languages if you have several for some users) and Ctrl+Alt+Shift…

  12. Alt+drag to duplicate multiple spline knots and segments

    Up until the Illustrator 23.1.1 update, splines with overlapping knots and multiple selected spline segments could be duplicated easily by:

    1) using the "A" select tool to select individual knots or segments of a path,
    2) region-dragging to select several knots,
    3) begin dragging then quickly hold down the ALT key before releasing
    This would duplicate the knot and it's connected and the newly created connected segments. If only segments were selected, then the new segments were created while dragging, <important!> keeping their anchor knots where they originated at either end of the spline. It was a very efficient tool…

  13. Ability to back-up custom toolbars and cloud back-up

    We can back-up preferences and settings via Edit > My Settings > Export Settings. We can back-up Actions via "Save Actions". But currently we cannot back-up our customised toolbars. It would be very useful if that option could be added to "Export Settings".

    It would also be very useful if all settings could be backed-up to the cloud, similar to Photoshop's new "Sync Presets" option.

  15. Existing "text variables" function from InDesign to Illustrator

    Is it possible to add a similar feature to "text variables" from InDesign to Illustrator? In particular - the file name, modification date.
    It would be even better if there were some variables, for example - author, size of the canvas, minimum size of the text used in the project.

  16. symbol marker in preview and outline view

    I'd like to see a symbol "marker" of some sort to quickly identify symbols used on a layout, much like the pilcrow and other typographic characters used in InDesign (that can be turned On or Off). These "markers" should be visible in both Preview and Outline views. Thanks. A.C.

  17. layer locked with password

    we are creating layouts for franchisees and because many time they unlock the layers and moving around the elements, we thought that locking the layer and protecting the content with the password could be the solution to maintain integrity in the layout designed from the agency

  18. The Ability to Compound by Color

    Take an object or line of text that has been converted to outlines, put an offset path on it, make that new outline a different color than the original object. Now the requested feature would be the ability to drag select the entire object and offset path, then select "Compound By Color" and it will make all colors selected into their own compound path.

  19. Find and Replace as a panel (palette)

    Does it no longer have to be in pallet form for FIND & REPLACE? Even list the past wanted. I think you should think about it. You can take an example from the ExtendScript Toolkit (ESTK) (as in the video). Because Adobe did it. I want to remind:)

  20. Stop with the supersampling export artboard option!!!!!!

    Seriously its becoming an irritating issue. Everytime when i want to export many artboard one short, i have to make sure i select supersampling....... otherwise it'll come out pixelated. I'm working in a fast pace environment and i can't keep double check on that option. why not just automatic just make sure the res at 72dpi come out the best appearance? Please fix this. Because if someone wants it to be lower appearance than hey, pls do click this more option. Really irritate me. Here is an image. Left, supersampling, right is not.
