  1. You cannot add a Free Form Gradient to the Swatch Panel

    FREE FORM GRADIENT - The new feature in Ai CC 2019. You can create amazing gradients, however, you cannot save any free form gradient created to the swatch panel or the Cloud Library....why ?

    Its a great feature, however, it makes for so much extra work if you want to use any free form gradient you create in one file, in another file or project in the future....it would be logical to be able to save this new style of creating gradients to the CC Library and to one's Swatch Panel.

  2. 2018CC version Preferences - Units go back to "points"

    Preferences Units go back to "points" even after I change it to "millimetres" on 2018CC version. I go to Units (no document open) and change from default POINTS to "mm". When I open a new document it is reading POINTS again!

  3. Right Click Menu Enhancements (Cut, Copy, Paste, Lock, Unlock, etc)

    Can you please add simple tasks like "Lock / UnLock" 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.

  4. Find Font window panel - expandable/resizable and searchable

    Please simply allow the Find Font window panel to be expandable/resizable. Difficult to tell between the different weights on long font names such as:
    Helvetica Neue LT Extended Heavy
    vs
    Helvetica Neue LT Extended Black

    The panel needs more horizontal space or even a tooltip to pop-out the full font name.

  5. Reduce memory used and improve whole application performance speed.

    Improvement of whole application performance speed.
    Reduce the amount of memory used. (But keep a nimble performance)
    User thinks that performance improvement is the most important, but please do not correct it so that it will improve by using a lot of memory.

    Reasons :
    Recently, memory management has improved, but application crashes due to illegal memory access still occur.
    If the operation speed is slow, I think that work efficiency will be the most degraded.
    Reduction in time to start up and performance greatly affect all work.
    Not all users are using the new and high spec machines.
    Although…

  6. Live Corners should be more live

    It's too easy to "break" a live corner in Illustrator.

    Compare how resilient a live corner is in Sketch versus in Illustrator. In Sketch, the original anchor point is available for manipulation no matter the corner rounding value.

    In Illustrator, translating a rounded corner in any way is highly likely to expand it to a raw bezier curve.

    Thus in Illustrator, if you want to edit your path at all, the best practice is actually to reduce all corner rounds to zero before making any edits. Then edit the path, and then restore the rounding values. To accomplish this, I…

  7. Object Layer Options

    Using linked ai documents in an Illustrator file is a great way to reduce the file load on the system, and also to work collaboratively. It would be nice to be able to toggle layers in placed psd and ai files in the same way that InDesign does (accessed via import options on place, or by right-click context menu).

  8. 字形パネルメニュー「標準字形に戻す」の仕様が間違っている

    日本語版Illustratorの字形パネルメニューには、メニュー項目「標準字形に戻す」があります。

    期待する「標準字形に戻す」の仕様:
    選択文字からGSUBフィーチャーが取り除かれ、そのフォントのデフォルトグリフが表示される。ただしccmpのようなデフォルトで有効なフィーチャーは除く。InDesignはこの仕様。

    現在の日本語版Illustratorの「標準字形に戻す」の仕様:
    選択文字にGSUBフィーチャー「fwid」(等幅全角字形)が付与され、等幅全角字形のグリフが表示されてしまう。

    標準字形の意味は、デフォルトグリフ(フォント内のcmapテーブルでマッピングされているグリフ)です。標準字形が「fwid」を意味することは決してありません。InDesignの仕様が正しく、Illustratorの仕様は間違っています。

    おそらく字形パネルが実装された当初から間違っており、現在でも間違ったままです。ユーザーはこの間違った仕様にいつも苦しめられています。

  9. 'Saved' menu in New Document window should show my custom templates

    1. Right now only templates from Adobe Stock show up here. It's counterintuitive. I would like to have my custom templates saved here. Otherwise they are relatively hidden at the bottom of the 'Web' or 'Print' lists.
    2. I would also like to be able to quickly save a template right from the new document window (not have to make a document, save as template, get permissions error, fix permissions, save template).
    3. The new document window is VERY SLOW to open. Legacy is instant and the lag is really frustrating.
    4. Please for the love of creative gods, fix the High Sierra/CC bugs.…

  11. Visible keyboard shortcuts for actions

    In photoshop you can see the keyboard shortcuts for a created action right behind the action in the action-window. Why isn't this possible in illustrator?

  12. Dim Control In Isolation Mode

    It's extremely difficult to manually work with colors with respect to the complete artwork in isolation mode with the background dimming effect. This should be able to be disabled, while still maintaining group isolation workflow benefits.

  13. Percentage rulers

    Photoshop has Percentage as a unit for its ruler, and I find it very useful when one needs to center an element, or drag a guide in the middle or the third of the image, especially as one can stick to the ruler marks.

    I always wondered why Illustrator did not have that functionality.

  14. Allow to add dithering to gradients to reduce banding / improve quality

    We have banding when printing gradients from exported TIFF-files.

    I have to open them in Photoshop, search a way to select areas with gradients and apply noise in channels needed.

    I can apply Grain effect to gradients where I need, but this makes everything run very slow.

    What if you add dithering as an option to gradient swatch? or to fill?
    So it could be displayed in screen space, applied to current level of zoom, and would export as raster images as well? without slowing down?

  15. Make Asset Export settings Per-Project not Global

    It doesn't make sense to have global settings for Asset Export, as the exporting requirements vary between projects. Each project should have its own Asset Export settings so this doesn't have to be set up every time when exporting from different projects with different settings.

    Changing back and forward is time consuming and error prone.

  16. In-line Graphics / Anchor Object to text ability (like InDesign)

    Please allow in-line graphics in text paragraphs, so graphics will move along with the rest of the copy within text. I am working on a lot of signage/wayfinding and the rooms keep getting moved about. Arro symbols and toilet icons have to be positioned manually and it is VERY time consuming. I wish the original artwork had been created in InDesign! Thanks

  18. 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.

  19. Script for Data Merge from excel into Illustrator

    I am looking for a way to import excel data into specific layers in Adobe Illustrator CC 2017.

    Essentially to have the excel data tables to link to different artboards and be able to be updated each time the file is opened or as needed. Assuming this would be some kind of script so one could just run the script again or a data merge process (similar to what is available in indesign.

    Thanks in advance!

  20. Add EPS format to export for screens and asset export

    I realise that .pdf is essentially the same as .eps format, but still it would be useful to have the option to export as .eps.
