  1. 「中央に整列」を実行したときに、座標の平均ではなく選択範囲の中央に揃えたい / Align to center of selection instead of average of coordinates when "Align Center" is executed

    現在のIllustratorデスクトップ版で「選択範囲に整列」を設定し、複数のオブジェクトを対象に「垂直方向中央に整列」または「水平方向中央に整列」を実行すると、それぞれのオブジェクトの中央の座標を平均した位置で揃います。

    一方で、Illustrator iPad版で同じ操作を行うと異なる結果になります。iPad版の「中央に整列」では、座標の平均ではなく、選択範囲(バウンディングボックス)の中央でオブジェクトが揃うしくみです。
    自分が確認した限りではPhotoshopやInDesignもこちらの仕様です。

    • 「選択範囲に整列」というオプションの名称からも、座標の平均で揃うことは推測しにくい
    • iPad版のように、選択範囲の中央に揃うほうが直感的でイメージしやすい
    • デスクトップ版とiPad版の同じ機能がそれぞれ違う動きをするのは避けるべき
    • 選択範囲の中央に揃う仕様はその他のAdobe製品でも採用されている

    上記の理由から、Illustratorデスクトップ版でも「中央に整列」では選択範囲の中央に揃える仕様に変更してほしいです。

    ---------(used the translation tool)---------

    In Illustrator on desktop, select multiple objects, and in the "Align to Selection" setting, execute "Vertical ( or Horizontal ) Align Center".

    The objects will then be aligned at the average of their respective center coordinates.

    However, the same operation in Illustrator on iPad produces a different result. The iPad's "Align Center" aligns the object at the center of the selection (bounding box), rather than at the average of the coordinates.
    As far as I have confirmed, Photoshop and InDesign also have this specification.

  2. Covert a Grid Repeat object to a pattern filled rectangle

    As mentioned by Von Glitschka at https://twitter.com/Vonster/status/1530587235375927296 it would be great to have an automatic conversion of a grid repeat object into an exactly same looking artwork, but made with a rectangle filled with a newly generated pattern swatch a user can continue to work with.

    Yes, we can expand it, release the clipping mask, find the module, clean the unnecessary duplicates, create a swatch, fill the former clipping mask with it, match the positioning exactly... all manually, or with a help of a script maybe.... but who does not like easy solutions? We do.

  3. A brush that places elements on anchors

    I would like a brush that places its elements along the path but rather than just distributing the elements or scattering them, it places the elements exactly on the anchors of the path. It should not distort the elements.
    It would be great if it could have individual elements for the endpoints and for the inner points. More control would be possible if it could allow separate elements for corner points and for smooth points. That way objects could be placed along a path precisely.

    Use case: maps, metro lines maps infographics

  4. Interpolated Anchor Move

    Similar to a font developing tool, many lettering illustrations involve maintaining the stress of a curve while moving anchors. So with this tool, you'd be able to move an anchor point and the curve handles adjacent to the anchor would move proportionally to make the curve look similar despite the anchor moving. This could be a global setting that is enabled in preferences.

    Here's a better breakdown of how the feature could behave:

  5. Allow to see and edit colors in a selection, just like with Selection Colors in Figma

    Figma displays a full list of colors used in a selected art in its right sidebar: https://help.figma.com/hc/en-us/articles/360042553434-View-and-adjust-colors-in-a-mixed-selection
    It allows quickly evaluate the selection, edit colors right there, even swap — without the need of using bulky Recolor. Illustrator can't offer the same quick tool, neither in Color panel nor with the Properties.
    Please make this possible in Ai, and make it better.

  6. Fix behavior of numerical fields

    There are standards used throughout computing that inform how field values work and Illustrator screws this up terribly.

    When a field is not in focus, clicking on the field or the field value brings the field and value into focus. This automatically should select the entire user-editable contents of the field value. This allows you to click and type a new value to change the value.

    Illustrator instead changes the cursor to an insertion point when hovering over a field value. Clicking in the field value, places the insertion point at the location the pointer was at. If you then…

  9. Move overset text icon further away from bottom corner handle

    When working with threaded text in Illustrator it is difficult to select the overset text icon since it is so close to the bottom right handle of the bounding box. If I am zoomed out I always end up accidentally clicking the bottom right handle instead of the overset text icon.

    If it was moved halfway between the middle right handle and the bottom right it would be easier to click on from a distance. I made an image showing how it is now and how I think it would work better. Thank you!

  10. More Eyedroppers

    Sometimes I would like to just use the eyedropper for fill color instead of having it match everything. It would be cool if you have individual eyedropper tools for fill, stroke, font features, and one for everything.

  11. Change Illustrator marker code from % to something no one would use, like tilde

    You know... people REALLY USE the "%" symbol when making charts. We'd like to be able to use it when making live marker symbols, but we can't because that is the reserved symbol for markers. NO ONE would use a tilde since it can't be represented as a data point. Please change this and add functionality to add a suffix to numbers when used in a column marker. You REALLY need to bring charts into the 21st century... I feel like I'm still working in 1999.

  12. 3D page mockup

    I'd love the ability to create an open brochure or magazine, or book mockup using the new overhauled 3d tools, but the tool is currently too limited. Seems to me that what is missing is the ability to bend or warp planes after they have been tilted and rotated. There are other ways of achieving this geometry, but they feel like hacks, and the new place graphic/material capability doesn't recognize the geometry that was partly made with other tools before getting into 3d. Please keep developing the 3D features in illustrator with product mockups in mind, including publication mockups.

  13. Is there a way to change the state of the page information line when exporting from Illustrator to a PDF?

    Is there a way to change the state of the page information line when exporting from Illustrator to a PDF.
    We need it closer to the bleed box (or right on it) and much further to the left.
    We need it closer to the bleed frame (or right on it) and much further to the left.
    I can't find anything in Illustrator's settings (of course). This will probably be defined in some file. I would like to edit this file with an editor to adapt it to our needs. Or is that perhaps possible via a script?

    The background is…

  17. Improving and increasing infographics (Graphs) capability.

    Create infographics out of the box. Add Radial column charts (put column bars around a circle) increase size of shape by area (comparison), treemaps etc. There is a wealth of data viz to add to Illustrator. The graphs are ancient tools compared to the other tools in Illustrator. I teach illustrator and I see many students that come from Marketing dpts to learn Photoshop and InDesign and need better capability for Infographics.

  18. LCH Gradients

    Add support for gradient interpolation spaces other than sRGB, such as LCH (Lightness, Chroma, Hue). When creating a gradient between non-analogous colors, the LCH color space preserves saturation throughout the gradient, whereas Illustrator's gradients have a muddy center.
