  3. An L-systems panel like Inkscape, but where you can use symbols too.

    Could be really powerful for pattern making, placing editable symbols or drawing lines or basic shapes with rules that can create patterns outside of the wallpaper set, including Penrose tiling and other fractals.

  4. Option to have Measurements for Line - Full or Scaled.

    If I were to draw a line from pint A to B the size of that line is displayed under the line. This should be optional and be able to be turned off. Also have the ability to state scaled size so it might have arrows point to star and end of line and the size in the middle <--------- 10" ----------> or it might say 10" @ 1/10 actual size 100".

  5. Replace objects with an object

    example:
    I have created a circle with text in it, and grouped it all together, however I have a pattern of Circles, and only want some of the circles in the pattern to look like the one I have created and grouped, so I can click the ones I want to replace, and then with a tool, select the group I've created, and it will replace the ones I've selected. Not too sure if this feature exists, though it would be a beneficial tool to have.

    The intended solution for this is to use Global Edit feature.

    Copy the object you want to replace with, then select one of many copies you want to replace and use Select > Start Global Edit command.

    Using Shift, unmark those copies you don’t want to affect.

    Isolate the targeted copy.

    Paste the copied object and position it correctly relatively the old object.

    Delete the old object.

    Exit the isolation and end Global Edit.

    It may sound convoluted at first, but once you master the method, you’d be able to easily replace almost anything.

    Global Edit has its limitations: it doesn’t work for images, text objects, clipped masks, linked objects, and third-party plugins.

    Read more about it here: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/global-edit.html

  6. Change Selection tool back to the way it was.

    The selection tool on an object is now really annoying. I have to zoom in really close to a small object to move it otherwise I get too many options and it just ends up spinning or resizing the object. Please fix!!!

  7. New Tool Idea: "Drag Draw"

    I've developed a novel way of drawing vector shapes using a delayed "drag point" method which at first seems counter-intuitive, but is actually closer to the way people draw with pens and brushes, because the drawing point is distanced from the moving point by a controlled amount (as if drawing with a chain), smoothing out the resulting line. My working demo was built in Javascript and can be observed in the attached video, but would be much more powerful within Illustrator and Photoshop. The tool I created allows me to export SVGs and gives me the ability to create smooth…

  9. Rotate multiple shapes one time but each ones around its anchor point

    Dear Adobe
    Can we please have the possibility to select many shapes and rotate them all one time but each one be rotated around its anchor point?
    I think it will help us to make great designs quickly.
    Thanks and I hope you take my proposal in consideration

    Need More Info  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    Hi Nacer,

    Does the menu item Object > Transform > Transform Each… not work for you? You can also choose the reference point on the 9-point reference widget in the dialog.

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

  11. Make Object-Path menu a part of Right-Click menu

    Or at least a full part of the Properties palette. It would be a much faster workflow when adding/removing anchor points. Most of those menu items are used often enough to warrant an R-Click placement.

  13. Infinite mouse when resizing/moving

    If I'm moving/scaling an object, when the mouse gets to the edge of the screen, it stops. In blender when scaling/ moving, the mouse loops back to the other side of the screen allowing to continue the move/scale. This would greatly improve workflow.

  14. Circle-tool — subdivision functionality with arrow keys

    As the "Effect > Stylize > Round Edges..." is a little bit flawed if working with short sections and third-party-scripts often show the same problem that short sections rounded often are not a circular section but some weird hyberbole of sorts I often use Circles and subdivisions of those as a stand-in if I need a round corner with a fixed radius. Up to now i have to manually draw a line from the center, rotate it by the angle I want and subdivide it with the knife.
    If circles could behave a bit like the polygon tool and its…

  15. An option for the pen tool to behave like Photoshop

    As a Photoshop user most of the time, I would find it would be much easier to have bezier curve anchors not delete themselves when closing a path or reselecting a path. It would also be great if nudging points with the arrow keys would not interrupt and unselect the current path.

    Some preference to toggle these behaviors would be fantastic!

  16. Addressing long-standing graph tool issues

    Just went back to prerelease site where I logged a complaint about the Radar graph. Feedback was that the error was not an error but an intentional result. I am however not satisfied with that reply. Other graph tools remember grid line settings, font settings, etcetera. Radar tool reverts all those settings every time the graph is updated. This is not a logical result. But this is just one of many complaints about the graph tools and there has been zero development of graph tools, as far as I can see, since they first appeared over 30 years ago. I…

  18. I wish '□Scrubby Zoom' would work individually when zooming in and out in Photoshop and Illustrator.

    I wish '□Scrubby Zoom' would work individually when zooming in and out in Photoshop and Illustrator.
    When enlarging the screen, it is convenient to disable ‘□Scrubby Zoom’.
    When zooming out the screen, it is convenient to check '▣Scrubby Zoom'.
    I found it convenient because I didn't have to click multiple times to zoom out.

  19. Allow For Time and Dates Values With Graphs Tools

    Currently, Illustrator graphing tools only allow for using whole, decimal, and percentage number values for plotting data in the different graphs Illustrator can make.

    I would like the option to also use date ranges and time value formats so that I could make dynamic graphs and charts that plot that type of data as well.
