  2. Edit multiple identical objects real-time

    Hello!
    Would be cool to have a feature where for example when editing 2 identical objects, you can convert one object into main object and other into "mirrored" one through layer system/window and then mirrored one will show same changes real-time whenever I'm editing the main one. Afterwards when turning off the feature, all the "mirrored" ones turn into seperate objects (as if rasterized).
    This would be a game changer when I'm editing text that is turned into object and I want same edits to be applied to all other identical letters.

  3. Create set of tools for items in Menu/Object/Path...

    I find I frequently got to Menu/Object/Path/Offset Path or Menu/Object/Path/Outline Stroke along with Envelope distort and Expand.

    It would be great to have these functions available as Clickable Tools that I could add to a Toolbar.

  6. 3rd party software developer that provides product cost analysis of sketches output from Adobe Illustrator

    I am looking for a 3rd party software that can analyze a sketch drawn in AI for product cost. Are there developers out there that have created something to analyze for cost?

  7. Create a shortcut to toggle between 2 different tools (e.g. brush & ink)

    Would be nice to have a keyboard shortcut to toggle between 2 tools (e.g. brush and ink) I'm working on an illustration and would be so much faster if I could have just one key to toggle between both tools. This is possible in Photoshop. I don't understand why isn't possible in Adobe Illustrator :(

  10. Illustrator Internal Font Maker

    I wanted to request Adobe Illustrator to be able to create and export a font file on its own. I know illustrator can export file types for font creation. I would love to not have to jump to other software to finish making a font as well as be able to make the font automatically be added to my library for use in other Adobe Cloud apps or share/upload to Stock.
    The reason I make this request is because I want to streamline the typography/font creation without struggling to export to other software. When I make fonts it's for use…

  11. Eyedropper doesn't include the arrow heads on a line

    If I have a line selected and I use the eyedropper on a different line with a stroke and arrow heads, it only copies the stroke not the arrow heads.

    Please make it include the arrow heads.

    Also, the most useful arrow head is number 27, it should be number 1 not number 27.

    In fact, if there was a checkbox you could click in the stroke properties window that automatically changed a line to a measurement label so it put an arrowhead 27 on each end, changed the stroke to like 4pt yellow, and a text box half way…

  12. Scale with constrained proportions

    Give me a key combo with the scale tool to constrain proportions.

    The diagonal motion doesn't cut it. I'm doing very detailed work and there is no indicator if the proportions are actually locked or not. Very frustrating.

  13. Turn any object into an eraser head.

    You can quickly delete everything inside/outside an object. Right click could make it rotate while moving. Make the option to leave a fill underneath and create a new object. I think it is time to move on from just a circle. Maybe this could belong to the shaper tool.

  14. Allow to choose delimiter in Variables

    Hi, I need to have the ability to upload a tab separated csv file in the variable window. In Mexico we use commas instead of dots to separate the thousands, that generates a bad reading of the data set. Thanks

  15. Apply arrowheads with eyedropper

    When using the eyedropper tool on a line, I would like the arrowheads from the line I am imitating to be applied to the selected line. I don't want to scroll through all the arrowhead options for every line! If I apply it once, It'd be so much easier to eyedrop that same feature on all the other lines I need it for.

    This is something I would use for my job while making tech packs every day! I have arrowheads on the ends of dimensions and callouts.

  16. Bring back selection tool shapes and straight lasso

    Taking these selection tools away has slowed down my work....I REGRET updating!

    The tools you are describing exist in Photoshop. There were never tools like these in Illustrator, you must be confusing these two apps together.

    However, I think Ai could benefit from having circular marquee and polygonal lasso, so please upvote this, if you want to see them developed.

  17. Scale Obect or group of objects base on two reference points (similar as in CAD)

    This is useful when you need to exactly match the scale of two objects or especially group of objects. Say you have changed the scale in one file but have received a new file from a client that is in the original scale. You want to quickly match the scale change. If you have at least one reference line that hasn't changed, you can pick two reference points on the new object(s) and then the two matching points on the scaled file. This matches the the scale exactly. This can also be used in many other ways.

  19. More Eyedroppers

    Sometimes I would like to just use the eyedropper for fill color instead of having it match everything. It would be cool if you have individual eyedropper tools for fill, stroke, font features, and one for everything.

  20. Change Illustrator marker code from % to something no one would use, like tilde

    You know... people REALLY USE the "%" symbol when making charts. We'd like to be able to use it when making live marker symbols, but we can't because that is the reserved symbol for markers. NO ONE would use a tilde since it can't be represented as a data point. Please change this and add functionality to add a suffix to numbers when used in a column marker. You REALLY need to bring charts into the 21st century... I feel like I'm still working in 1999.
