  1. Remove Text to vector from Properties panel

    Would like an option to remove it from Properties panel as it sometimes opens on its own after I have closed it and it impedes my workflow having to close it again because it obstructs actually useful things Properties panel.

  2. Synchronise tiled windows

    I would like to have all tiled windows use the same panning and zoom settings as the window I am currently working in.

    • How it's working now: each tiled window has its own zoom factor. Panning with the hand tool moves the view inside the active window.
    • How it should work: zoom and panning are synched between all tiled windows. They all have the same zoom factor and X/Y position. If I zoom in the active window, all other windows zoom in as well; if I pan in one window, all other windows pan in the same manner.

  4. 球体のワイヤーフレーム描画に特化したエフェクトを用意して欲しい

    学生向けの講義や試験問題を作成する上で、
    幾何学での球体の描画や、天文学での黄道座標系、
    太陽の方位や高度の説明図を作成するのに非常に苦労する。

    半円を基に、効果 → 回転体(クラシック)で作成しても、
    アピアランス分割、グループ解除、パスの分割等の作業がとてもに苦痛である。

    Inkscapeに実装されている、「ワイヤーフレーム球体」の様な機能が
    Illustratorに実装されれば非常に助かります。

    ご検討をよろしくお願いいたします。

  5. French Curve tools. I used it with the older version of Adobe Draw for iPad when Apple Pencil was released. I need it put back.

    French Curve tools. I used it with the older version of Adobe Draw for iPad when Apple Pencil was released. I need it put back. As a clothing designer I’m writing a design pattern drafting book. I started the project years ago using the French Curve tools that were available in the Adobe Draw app that is no longer available. I need those tools to complete my book project. Drawing pattern drafts require those tools. Please put the French Curve tools back into the tools area for the iPad Adobe Illustrator app to be used with Apple Pencil. I can’t…

  6. I wish '□Scrubby Zoom' would work individually when zooming in and out in Photoshop and Illustrator.

    I wish '□Scrubby Zoom' would work individually when zooming in and out in Photoshop and Illustrator.
    When enlarging the screen, it is convenient to disable ‘□Scrubby Zoom’.
    When zooming out the screen, it is convenient to check '▣Scrubby Zoom'.
    I found it convenient because I didn't have to click multiple times to zoom out.

  7. Live Free Distort

    I would like to see the "Free Distort" effect be extended to work on the actual object, not going through a tiny dialog box that feels like I'm trying to apply it to a postage stamp. It's really difficult to apply a distorted shape to a larger area when I am guessing if a 1-pixel move of a tiny handle is going to make a difference or not. It would be amazing if four independent handles were on the actual art and allow me to move the corners exactly to the spot I want to place them at. It's a…

  8. Clear guides should delete guides in transparency masks too

    Just took me ages to work out why i couldnt remove guides from a file and discovered they existed only within various transparency masks and had to go through each mask individually to remove them. Clear guides feature should remove those too, surely?!

  9. Auto synchronised text boxes for copy

    Have two or more separate text boxes synchronise to the same text when either one is edited.

    When creating numerous different sized online banner advertisements, each with multiple copy variations, it would be beneficial if I could synchronise the copy of one across all creative versions.

  10. Changing 'Screen Mode' forgets where the window was located

    In Photoshop you can use the F key to cycle through screen modes: Standard, Full Screen + Menu Bar, and Full Screen. This works as intended.

    In Illustrator however, when you cycle through screen modes it will forget where your window was previously positioned. Instead, it defaults to taking up the entire screen. This is a bug.

  11. When rotating an object, add a hotkey that allows the user to explicitly enter the rotation angle.

    When rotating an object, I can see the rotation angle and I have to struggle to get the rotation to align perfectly to an exact angle. While I can do this with the rotate tool, it's frustrating to see the rotation almost where I need it, but having to undo, select the rotation tool, set the angle, etc.

    If there was a hotkey while rotating, like say, Ctrl... a small text box would appear in place of the angle and I could just manually enter the angle with the previous rotation angle as a default, I think that could save…

  12. Live align

    1. With this live align feature, you could have two objects maintain their alignment properties even if you change one of the objects. For example, if you have a rectangle and text inside it. You should be able to align the text to the rectangle. Later, when you change the text or change the rectangle, it should keep the alignment settings persistent. So, if you made the rectangle longer, the text would remain centered on the longer rectangle.

    2. I center objects within groups all the time. As far as I know, there is no way to make changes to objects and…

  14. Allow Shape Builder to close edited path, but keep the one below opened

    Hi there!
    So, the thing is that - when I have 2 intersecting open filled paths, I really want to remove the outside path of one path using Shape Builder tool. But I want the second path to stay open. and the first path to become closed.

    It may sound as a picky request. But I struggle with this issue everyday, like, 20+ times.

  16. Don't reset view rotation when pressing Escape

    When you are in a rotated view, pressing Escape resets the rotation to zero degrees. This is frustrating when you're merely trying to exit Object Isolation or exit text editing.

    There does not seem to be a Keyboard Shortcut for this operation, which I would expect to see.

  17. Please allow image tracing of individual colours to individual layers rather than 16 million objects.

    Being able to trace one colour to one layer would make laser cutting so much easier. e.g. 16 colours to 16 layers

  18. Restore pressing Ctrl + Alt + Enter in Transform’s Width and Height fields to constrain proportions AND copy at the same time

    I thought I could explain this feature only with a video. Even though it was difficult and I took risks, I was able to prepare it by finding a portable CS 11 version.

    I want this feature back for Transform Palette. Because they destroyed it or forgot about it or no one knows about it.

  20. Mask that acts like InDesign

    Masking like InDesign. It's valuable since I don't have to choose to Mask the image, it automatically places it in a mask like InDesign does
