  1. New Features of Photoshop CC 2021

    Lightroom cc classic is now a backdated software and not so beginners friendly and not so easy to control and learn compare to the lightroom Cloud Version. So instead of developing the lightroom cc classic version, it would be great for all end adobe users if this cloud version of the Lightroom CC turns into an off-line software like other adobe software!

  2. PLEASE BRING BACK PEN TOOL!!! Curvature Tool SUCKS!!!

    Please make a legacy option for the curvature tool to revert back to the Pen Tool I have been using the Pen Tool for like 20 years. I have found a work around by reverting back to an older Illustrator edition so I can again have that option. I WILL continue to do this because it is FAR more productive for me than using the curvature tool which I know well enough to say I am proficient in it. VERY UPSET HERE and I'm talking over a month of upset, not a bad day of upset. Thanks!! Adobe you still…

  3. Short cut for 'outline stroke'

    Could there maybe be a short cut for 'outline stroke'? There only is one for letters but not for lines and stuff.

  4. Fresco - Give freedom to remove all gestures from the app - let the apple pencil be the only option

    This was meant for the wishlist for Fresco, but there was no option. But, my issue was that the palm of my hand activates the undo function in Fresco. I would like to turn this feature off since it's too sensitive for my hand. I thought at the same time it would be great for palm rejection to be able to turn off all gestures.

  5. Get rid of that awful new document screen. It's annoying for experienced users.

    Please have a way to turn off that new document screen the same way I can turn off the "Start Workspace".

    Experienced users don't need (or want) doc creation on-boarding.

  7. Please allow an option to disable to home screen.

    It's annoying to have this thing pop up every single time you close a document. In every app. Give us an option to turn it off.

  8. Bring back: Unlock-Guides and they Appear, PLEASE.

    It used to be that when GUIDES were hidden and locked and you UN-LOCKED the guides (with the keyboard shortcut), they would also appear (View-Guides-Show Guides). It was a VERY useful, quick and easy way to know for sure that the guides were unlocked.

    Right now there is no indicator that guides are unlocked, without having to annoyingly go through the menu. You have to unlock and lock repeatedly and keep making attempts at selecting a particular guide before you know that you have actually selected the guide, and not a near-by path.

    Thank you!

    Declined  ·  Neeraj Nandkeolyar responded

    For both locked and unlocked guides, there is a different cursor feedback for the Selection and Direct Selection tools.

    While we will be making improvements to guides, in future, there are no plans around mixed behavior of show/hide & locked/unlocked.

    Thanks!

  9. CC 2017 Zoom

    Can we please change the zoom back to how it used to be previous to CC 2017.

    The auto select zoom is driving me crazy!

    "In Illustrator CC 2018, Adobe finally fixed this by adding a check box under preferences Section & Anchor Display. You can disable Zoom To Selection. It is enabled by default."

    Can we please see this option in CC 2017

  10. Why was the copy and paste function forcibly changed?

    Why do you guys change my personal settings?

    Please don't change my settings under the pretext of updating. Do you know how disturbed we are when arbitrarily changing the settings of existing users to receive new users?

    Until yesterday, the option key + arrow direction was copy. But now I've changed the option key + arrow to change the line and space of the letter. What are you doing? I was annoyed because I kept updating like this before, but I can't stand it. Why do you change the existing user's setting so recklessly?

    Do you know how long this…

    Alt/Option+arrow changes kerning when a selection has only text objects within and makes a copy when you have a textless selection.
    In much older versions pressing these for mixed selections (text + non-text) used to change kerning too, but do make a copy now instead, but no changes were made recently to revert it.

  11. Need Better (and Less-Hidden) Accessibility Tagging Options

    Please make it much easier to add accessible alt-text to InDesign documents. There should be an accessibility panel and pre-check to make it very easy for designers.

    As it is now, it's too hidden: https://www.adobe.com/accessibility/products/indesign/alt-text.html

  12. Make it easier as a new user to fill a shape

    There's no fill or paintbucket tool. For new users this is really yucky. I am trying to use the paintbrush tool and I keep selecting a fill color since that is the only thing I can find that has anything to do with filling but as soon as I go to draw with the paintbrush the fill color I selected vanishes and is replaced with that no fill icon. It doesn't make any sense to me and is really hard to use. Why not make your interface more intuitive for these most common things people would want to do right…

  13. Why doesn't Redo command work on transform operations?

    I did a shear operation on an object and wanted to repeat it on another. Redo doesn't work on this type of operation. It took me some searching to find out that Transform operations had their special Redo, called Repeat transform. Why can't it use Redo like any other command on any other software? You can maintain the Repeat transform command for people who are accustomed to it, but why impose special redo's for each different command?

  14. symmetry

    This is more of a feature request for Project Gemini rather than Illustrator but I made the mistake of assuming that "Photoshop for the iPad" would obviously come equipped with the symmetry tool available in Project Gemini but I understand now the consequences of assuming. I tend to use Adobe Draw for most the majority of my work for those nice hard illustrator friendly vector lines. I often try and just draw half of a character and then duplicate flip and merge together but this never really works quite the way I'd like it to. So, basically what I'm trying…

  15. Bring back the "+ Shift" command for scaling objects

    Please, bring back the "Shift" command that allows you to scale objects with the regular Selection Tool (V), and give the new tool as an option, not a default.

    The behavior you refer to is the Photoshop only change, and it does not relate to Illustrator.

    As for Photoshop — they fixed it with giving the option to change it back. Not giving it was a stupid decision.

  17. 'units' dropdown on transform pallet

    Add 'units' dropdown to transform pallet so you don't have to go to preferences to change them. This also separates the input box from the dialogue so its easier to type and tab through modifying dimensions.

    You can press Command+Option+Shift+U (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+U) to cycle through all measurement units.

    Also, type whatever unit in a value field to force Illustrator to recalculate the values into default units.

  18. Survey for illustrator

    I have prepared a survey for Adobe Illustrator. Which features of Illustrator.

  20. Free Trial doesn't work if licensed version used previously.

    If a computer has ever had a licensed version of the product (like from a school, not a personal use), the free trial will not work FOR ANYONE EVER AGAIN ON THAT COMPUTER. Even if you sell your computer, the next person CANNOT USE A FREE TRIAL. Adobe does nothing to help.
