  2. Rotate objects around an anchor point but each object stays in it's original orientation

    See attached image to help make sense of my ramblings.

    This may already be an option that I'm not aware of but I'd love the ability to rotate objects around a point but those objects NOT to be rotated but just repositioned. In the example I attached, I want to be able to rotate the outer orange circles around the centre point of the blue circle. When I do this, the circles and text rotate. This is a simple example but I think it's got potential on more complex things.

  3. Draw with paintbrushes as if you were really drawing!

    For example, some of the brushes when drawing appear as a purple pathway first before turning into a line from the brush you have chosen. This can ve very frustration if you are using for example the water colour brushes. You should also have a circle radius around the pointer before drawing that enables us to see the size of the brush as you can on some features in photoshop. This would be very helpful to artists to see the size of the brush they are using and the brush lines you have chosen to appear instantly as if it…

  5. resize does not respect the homothety #2

    I already had a big problem with this 2019 version of illustrator and the ungrateful homothety (see BUG "resize does not respect the homothety") but I discovered that the application is really worse than I thought.
    Look even worse when there is a blur effect on a shape. The application does anything, the numbers are completely crazy !!!! Impossible to work. Impossible with a PRO application !!!

  6. Better Opacity Shortcuts

    As far as I can tell, the only opacity shortcuts are:
    10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, 90%, 100%

    That means the following opacities are missing:
    0%, 1%, 2%, 3%, 4%, 5%, 6%, 7%, 8%, 9%, 11%, 12%, 13%, 14%, 15%, 16%, 17%, 18%, 19%, 21%, 22%, 23%, 24%, 25%, 26%, 27%, 28%, 29%, 31%, 32%, 33%, 34%, 35%, 36%, 37%, 38%, 39%, 41%, 42%, 43%, 44%, 45%, 46%, 47%, 48%, 49%, 51%, 52%, 53%, 54%, 55%, 56%, 57%, 58%, 59%, 61%, 62%, 63%, 64%, 65%, 66%, 67%, 68%, 69%, 71%, 72%, 73%, 74%, 75%, 76%, 77%, 78%,…

  8. wacom

    Have been unable to transform using my Wacom intuos pro in illustrator for the last few versions. The selection tool constantly defaults to rotate the object unless I zoomed right in. It is incredibly frustrating for workflow.
    I have contacted wacom who advised the issue is with Illustrator and not the tablet.

  9. Forcing us to use Preview Bounds to get cap handles in CC 2019 is a no

    For years we've had cap handles on strokes. Now we have to turn on Preview Bounds to get them. Unacceptable.

  10. アンカーポイント削除時の挙動

    例えば添付のような円の向かって左のアンカーポイントを削除すると、当然ながら添付Aのようになりますが、

    Bのように、アンカーポイントは削除したいけれど形状はなるべく最初の状態をキープしてほしい

    場面がたくさんあります。

    他のベクター系のアプリケーションでは可能だったりするので、技術的に難しいことでは

    ないと思うのですがこの挙動を採用することはできないんでしょうか。

    何かやり方があったりするんですかね?

    どちらか選べると大変ありがたいのですが。

    またアンカーポイントを、形状は極力キープしたままライン上を移動できるようになると作業効率は

    格段に上がると思うのですが。

  11. Direct selection tool

    Can you please put the selection tool back next to the direct selection tool instead of making it a hidden tool. It's very annoying having to pull it out to have both tools.

  12. Update corner widget so it is not constrained by other points...

    Currently, other anchors on a path will constrain the corner widget. Attached is a very simple example. I would like for the tool to be a bit more intelligent in how it handles corners in these situations.

  13. Add option for sketch-style relative positioning for grouped objects

    Ex: I create a button that consists of a rectangle with the text "submit" centered in it. No matter how wide or tall I make the rectangle, I want "submit" to remain centered horizontally and vertically within it.

    Sketch allows this via "pinning". I can set a parent object-- in this case, the rectangle-- and tell a child object---in this case, the text-- to maintain a certain distance from the top, left, right, and/or bottom of the parent object, or to remain centered to the object at all times, regardless of how the parent is scaled.

    In addition, multiple objects…

    There was a bug which allowed to accidentally drag-n-drop tools and insert them into other tools’ subgroups.

    It was fixed by introducing a special mode to enable this. No accidents with lost tools should happen. Please comment back if it happens for you in latest versions.

  16. Bug at the path points

    My English is not good so I made a video to explain my problem.
    This just happened in Illustrator 2019 but it was already in 2018. Only in 2017 does it happen. This problem only happens on this computer. On other computers I use does not happen.

    How do I solve this?

  17. cursor too small

    please create some thing to increase the cursor(cross hair). What mean is when I selected the Draw a line command. The cross hair is so light almost invisible to see, very hard to see where I can start to draw a line. unless is already there and I didn't know. I went through the setting menu, but can't find anything to make the cross hair darker and bigger

  19. shortcut for fidelity

    Hi there. I use illustrator for my digital whiteboard animation / videoscribe. It all works well. but I like to switch from low to high fidelity depending if I am drawing characters, or buildings or inanimate objects.
    I think a short cut key to put it up and down would be really useful.

  20. Illustrator or Photoshop for digital drawing??

    I am a digital artist. I didn't see a thread about difference between this two software , and it seemed like no one has given their impressions on this oftware so I wanted to put together something quick to kickstart a discussion or something.

    Illustrator is a vector based application and Photoshop is an image editor. That means Photoshop works with pixels and Illustrator does not. Illustrator drawings can be scaled and printed at any size without loss of image quality. The lines are very clean and sharp, which is great for logo design and illustration. Photoshop drawings can be…
