  1. Align to artboard when only when item/group of items is selected.

    Have aligning be dynamic depending on what is selected. If one item or group of items is selected auto select align to artboard rather than the last selected option.

    If multiple items are selected but not group it would auto select align to selection.

    This would reduce time having to check what you are aligning to since 99% of the time when you are trying to align a group it is to the artboard and the same with selecting multiple objects. It is a hassle having to constantly be checking and changing my align options.

  2. Full Alignment Center Option

    Instead of having two tools (Horizontal and Vertical Align Center), can we get a tool that does both in one called something like Fully Align Center. I've included an image of what the tool might look like.

  3. 「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.

  5. Add an option to make the bottommost object a Key Object

    Please add an option to the Align Panel to allow the user to change the default behaviour of "Align to Key Object".

    Currently, the default Key Object is the topmost object. However, it's very rare that I don't want the complete opposite – ie. to align an object to its underlying container. If users were able to "Align to Key Object (Bottommost)", it would save an enormous amount of time and effort.

  7. Highlight an anchor point used as a key object

    Keying an anchor point is a lesser known option for aligning and distributing.

    Clicking an object in a selection to key it is a thing that can be learnt by a chance (that is how I learned it myself), but using the latest selected point as a key is not a behaviour that is easily noticed.

    The change of the mode is marked only via the small icon in the corner of Align panel, and nothing else on the artboard tells about it — compare this to the fat edge a key object uses.

    Can you try to make a…

  8. Align to Cap Height

    It would be amazing if there were an option to Align to Cap Height similar to Align to Glyph Bounds released in the August 2020 update.

    If you have separate bits of text that you are trying to align to the same object, the result can be jumbled depending on the types of letterforms you include. It would be nice to have the option for text to align the same no matter if you have ascenders, descenders, curved forms, etc.

  9. Align/distribute to angle

    It would be so cool if you could align/distribute objects on an angle. Say for example I want to align objects to a 45 degree angle, instead of aligning to the highest/lowest point, or to the left or right.

  10. Align to object on ANOTHER artboard! yeah yeah!

    Aligning to an object on another arboard would be really great + needed, for AI users.

    In addition to functions like, align to key object and select/edit similar shapes,
    It would be so so great to be abled to align an object, to another object, on another artboard!

    In short:
    Aligning objects to the position of other objects on other artboards.
    Without having to move objects to the same artboard 1st, or copy their x/y values, just for alignment.

    Some thoughts/notes:

    Implementation,
    With artboard rules activated, of course. This seems to be a similar function to the ones that exist:…

  11. Allow to align pins in the puppet warp tool with each other

    In the process of creating brushes from existing artwork, the puppet warp tool is very helpful. But currently, I have to manually align the "spine" of an object and make use of the ruler. See attached.

    Unless of course, I am missing a step? I tried the align tool and it doesn't work for the pins for me. Would love if it did.

  12. Multiple Artboard Alignment at same time

    My name is Mujtaba from Pakistan, And I have been working as a Professional Designer.
    It is stated, that when we have multiple artboards, and when we need to arrange all the group or individual Object/Element in all artboard, we are enable to do so using Adobe illustrator CC 2021 yet.
    For example: We have 20 artboards and 20 different objects, now someone like to arrange each object in their own artboard, then there should be option that the object inside each artboard arrange to it's self. We have to arrange individually abroad and object one by one which takes…

  13. Is there an option to set single keys and function keys as hotkeys?

    Is there an option to set single keys and function keys as hotkeys?

    I'm used to another vector drawing program in conjunction with Illustrator and that program has some very easy to use hotkeys that are essential for shape alignments, like C for horizontal centering, E for vertical centering, B for bottom of a shape and T for top, etc. On Illustrator I can't set a single keyboard key as a hotkey for the alignment functions without the use of Ctrl or Shift before the key. That's just a no go for me.

    And since I use F5 as a…

  14. Align to bleed

    Have an align to bleed option, anything going to print generally has a 3mm bleed and it would be handy to bet things to align to this instead of the edge of the artboard.

  15. Make Align and Distbute work for direct selected Paths

    When subPaths of groups are selected, Align or Distribute works on the complete group, where we expect to work on the selection.

  17. Align between guides option

    The option to align between the two closest guides would help greatly when working on a multi-column document. Currently the only way to align to a single section of an artboard is to draw a box and align to that. Aligning to guides would streamline that quite a bit

  18. Alignment Hiarchy and Auto Align to Artboard

    Alignment should work (Like most other design software) where there is a Parent/Child hierarchical relationship. Currently only "Align to left, and top" behave this way. Align to Center causes the two objects to meet halfway between their artboard positions. This is has been a major issue for years.

    1. Touch Parent object (anchored in artboard position)
    2. Holding Shift, Touch Child object
    3. Selection alignment task
    4. Child moves to parent

    In addition, the selection of "Align to Artboard" should be an automatic default state for single or grouped objects. There is no need to have a selection for "Align to Artboard".

  19. Align to artboard

    In older versions I always had the option to set "align to artboard" and it didn't reset after deselecting objects. I want it ba and I want to be able to do that with a single object again, without having to select at least 2 to set that.

  20. オブジェクトの分布の基準点を改善してほしい

    左右(上下)最大サイズに位置するオブジェクトが基準となり、意図した整列が出来ません。
    例えば「水平方向左に分布」では各オブジェクト左位置を基準とした整列が望ましいと思います。
