  1. Bring back selection tool shapes and straight lasso

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

    I used to be able to use the box selection tool to make square and rectangle shaped edits, there was a circle and pointed selection tool AND there was a straight line lasso WHY DID YOU REMOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. Rotation and reflection when selecting an object

    When I have an object selected (left mouse is pressed down), I want to press the space bar to rotate it. This might rotate anticlockwise by 90° (so I would press the space bar three times to rotate the object clockwise by 90°). You could make the rotation angle 45° to be aligned with rotating and holding the shift key.

    Also, while the object is again selected, if I press the X key, the object is reflected horizontally; pressing the Y key reflects it vertically.

    These key strokes have been in use on another software program that I have used…

  9. The ability to set a line length, no matter what angle the line is on.

    It would be great if there was a section in the transform panel where you could enter a length for a line (instead of setting a height and width for the bounding box).

    This way it would not matter what angle the line was draw at, it could be set to a specific length.

    I've currently been drawing a vertical line, setting a height and then rotating to the correct angle but it is very tedious!

  10. Object or Group of Object Component

    This feature was actually on Adobe XD, where created objects like icons can be made as components, basically users can use a component multiple times, duplicating, copy and pasting to multiple artboards, but can be edited just once and then all the component link will update automatically without updating each object individually.

  11. Bring back opt-enter in move dialog

    Select art with selection tool, hit enter for move dialog, type in parameters and hit option-enter to duplicate. You removed this feature what feels like a decade ago. Put it back in. btw-I have used illustrator professionally since Illustrator 88.

  12. (1) Multi angled+coloured fills. (2) Shadow casting. (3) Lighting options.

    I posted my wishes as an April fool's joke on IG but then realised it may be a possibility after all?

  13. Pen Tool and Curvature Tool

    All my design products are from adobe, but, to be honest the path control is very primitive. The best path control tool in every single aspect could be found in CorelDraw. I think it is gonna help if you study the CorelDraw path control tool.

  15. Disable rotation shortcut in bounding box.

    When working with small elements, the rotation tool interferes with opt+dragging to duplicate.
    Rotation is not nearly as common a tool as simple manipulating/duplicating an object. Would prefer to use the Rotate tool when needed.

  16. Gestion des lignes et contours sur iPad

    Bonjour,

    Si une chose manque sur iPad c’est la gestion des lignes et des contours. Une autre chose serait bien à ajouter, c’est la peinture dynamique.
