  1. Grammarly support for Illustrator and InDesign

    Incorporating a Grammarly integration as part of the CC membership for Illustrator and InDesign would be INCREDIBLY helpful for many users. Even though these applications aren't word-processors, being able to reveiw documents for style etc. would be a huge bonus in my opinion.

    We have passed this request along to Grammarly and that while Grammarly thought it would be useful, they’re unable to prioritize it at this time.

    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,
    Yogesh

  3. Autofind Missing Links like in Indesign

    When I'm relinking a missing image in Indesign, it automatically finds other missing links in the same folder that a relinked to. It would be life changing if Illustrator did the same. Currently you have to manually relink each missing link which can become very tedious.

  4. Make Static Symbols the default, instead of Dynamic Symbols.

    A new symbol is saved as "Dynamic" by default. Please make "Static" symbols the default. They are the "Standard" and should remain the default. It is the exception when I want a "dynamic" symbol.

  5. Apply any Cap Style to a Stroke End Point

    Allow user to be able to select an end anchor point on a stroke and apply any cap they choose. So one path could have a butt cap on one end and round cap on the other end. This would make building certain styles with strokes far easier and avoid problems that the current workflow creates when expanded at times.

  6. 16 bit mode for Illustrator

    When creating Illustrations with gradients, we can only use 8bits. When imported in Photoshop or After Effects 16bits projects, the gradients stick to this poor 8bits - resulting in banding.

    Especially when working on normal/displacement maps for 3d materials, 8bits is not enough.

    How great would it be if Illustrator had a possibility to switch to 16 or 32 bit mode!

  7. Relative paths for linked assets

    An option to use relative paths for linked assets. Because links use absolute paths, simply moving the folder your artwork is in will break the links unless the links are in the same folder. For example:

    c:\artwork\project-1234\layout.ai
    c:\artwork\project-1234\assets\logo.jpg
    c:\artwork\standard-title-block.ai

    If logo.jpg and standard-title-block.ai are both linked to inside of layout.ai, renaming the project folder will break the links. Moving the project folder will break the links.

    Instead of storing the link paths absolutely, store them relatively. This way at least renaming the folder will preserve both links and moving the folder will only break links that point to file outside…

  8. Smart Guides

    Can you guys PLEASE make 'Smart Guides' better? For example, I work with product UI/Graphics and I'm always having to zoom in 1400% to clearly align and place objects on top of other objects, but the snapping is NOT GOOD AT ALL... Can you guys make things snap to each other like other programs are able to do so like CAD programs etc...

  9. Rotation center point remains with objects and groups, and is used when rotating an object using the bounding box controls.

    I want to be able to permanently edit (and reset) an object's (or group's) rotation axis (centre point). I want the new rotation axis to apply for subsequent rotation transformations, for example when using the bounding box controls.

    Currently, the rotation tool (r) allows you to pick up and move an object's centre, and then rotate the object around that point. Great, except that point disappears as soon as you exit the rotation tool, which isn't very helpful.

    I'm told Corel Draw had something like this... I can't overstate how much power and efficiency it would add to my workflow.…

  10. Get rid of Adobe Stock

    I am really really sick of having Adobe Stock rammed down my throat. I don't want it, never will. Give me the option to turn it off!

  11. Add hyperlinks that save in PDF format - PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

    Links in a PDF file currently need to be added in Acrobat and re-added every time an update is made to the source .AI file. Would love to add the links in the .ai file once and then be able to export (save a copy of) a PDF without having to spend time (and chance of mistakes) every time an update is made. Similar to InDesign. Thank you!

  13. Quick Look support for .ai files in MacOS

    Selecting a file in the MacOS Finder and then pressing spacebar to preview the file is one of the great features of the OS. It works with image files of many types as well as PDF files, etc. But not .ai files. Please build a Quick Look extension to add this support. Thanks.

  14. More robust Link Panel display and relinking functionality

    It would be nice if Illustrator's link panel was more link Indesign's in that it collapsed instances of the same linked file into an accordion. The user can then update multiple instances of a file to the same new link or link them individually to separate new links.

  15. TouchBar customization

    Can you please make available the option to customize the MacBook Pro Touch Bar in Adobe Illustrator. The new MacBook Pro Touch Bar is very useful and handy. The shortcuts that I can use with the Touch Bar save me a lot of time.

  16. Selection tool+Shift to only ADD to selection without deselecting already selected objects

    If you drag Selection Tool while holding Shift over already selected objects it deselects them. This can be very frustrating in some cases, for example if you have to carefully select and delete multiple patches of overlapping shapes. Instad of just holding Shift and dragging a selection box multiple times and then deleting, you have to select, delete, select again, delete and so on.

    It would be nice for Shift key to only add to selection without deselecting, and (for example) for Alt key - to only subtract.

  17. Grouping objects from different layers

    Hi Illustrator ! It would be great if there’s a feature to group objects and not have them in the same layer. Many instances I want to be able to resize/multiple select different objects (frim different layers) at the same time without having to select each of them individually everytime.

  18. Place multiple files in a grid like InDesign

    InDesign has a very nifty feature that I would like to see in Illustrator; if you press the arrow keys while placing multiple files at once, you can create a "grid" of said files. Depending on the job I'm working on, I have to place hundreds of files at once... Having this feature would streamline a lot of my projects.

  20. Right Click Menu Enhancements

    Can you please add simple tasks like "Lock/Un-Lock" and "Cut, Copy, Paste" to the the right-click menu? This would help speed up workflow and make illustrator more integrated with other Adobe products. I can right-click my mouse and quickly copy and paste in Indesign and even in Microsoft Word, but not in Illustrator? It's odd. Please consider fixing this. Thank you.
