  1. Melhoramento na ferramenta Seleção Direta para demarcadores, segmentos e pontos de ancoragem

    Gostaria de solicitar algumas ideias para deixar mais dinâmico os trabalhos de tratamento vetorial. A ideia seria juntar algumas ferramentas em apenas uma, ou simplesmente atribuir mais funções na ferramenta de "Seleção Direta" (principalmente)

    • Utilizar na ferramenta de "Seleção Direta" um Duplo Click para transformar o segmento de um demarcador selecionado em uma reta e, novamente com um duplo click e mantendo segurado, arrastaria para transformar o segmento em uma curva novamente.

    • Com uma tecla de comando precionada, ela poderia adicionar ou excluir pontos de ancoragem, isso deixaria o trabalho mais rápido, mesmo utilizando as teclas de atalho…

  2. Adaptive Shapes

    Adaptive shapes would be shapes that can change size according to the amount of text inside of them.

    It makes having a highlighted text effect a lot easier. A rectangle with text inside it can stretch as you add more words.

    Maybe a bit harder but it’d be cool if it can be applied to more complex shapes like a speech bubble shape, while retaining the ability to customize the notch and corner radius.

    Doing any of this precisely and manually is not easy

  3. Perspective tool should work on ANYTHING.

    You should be able to use the Perspective tool on ANYTHING. Many other packages allows you to put a perspective on editable text!! The same goes for Bitmap Images.... You should be able to but a box around ANYTHING and use the perspective tool on it. Why-O-Why do we have to convert text to curves to be able to put perspective on it??? Once it has perspective you Should be able to edit the text and keep the perspective on it!!!!

    Illustrator is Still Way Behind Other Similar Packages...

    Thanks

  4. Thumbnail preview required when selecting an object from multiple objects overlapping each other in illustrator

    I am having a trouble when selecting an object from multiple objects. I think, there should have some thumbnail and object preview option when we right the objects and try to select any object. I attached the image see the red arrow mentioned text.

  5. Allow Eyedropper tool to copy/apply different things

    Guys, the Eyedropper is an incredibly important tool, whether or not it's "****" by virtue of its age. You haven't updated it in, what, decades? Among the things that it is incapable of copying are:

    • multiple strokes
    • stroke profiles
    • transparency
    • blend modes
    • graphic styles

    Those are extremely common usages/needs. And that's off the top of my head, I'm sure there are many more. Obviously there's no reason this tool shouldn't be able to copy these things! Almost every aesthetic effect that gets added to AI should be reflected in that tool's pickup abilities. Please make this happen already.

    The Eyedropper tool can work in two modes: basic and extended: basic picks/applies only colors and text. extended allows you operate chosen appearance attributes.

    If you open the tool’s options (by doube-clicking the tool button or hitting Enter while it’s picked), you’ll see that you can check/uncheck two top ‘Appearance’ options and customize attributes to be processed.

    This is not intuitive, but very powerful once you get the concept.

  6. Drag and snap by specific point

    Sometimes I want to drag a specific point of a path and move it to another specific part of another path but Illustrator makes it difficult to do it precisely. I wish it was easier to do that without having to create more anchor points.

  7. Blob brush ability to do smaller size and make it more interactive.

    I often need a blob that is smaller than 1 point. The ability to go smaller would be wonderful!

    I use it a lot to "paint" wispy caligraphic lines.

    I often use the bursh with equal width and height because any other setting slows me down as I change the angle I "paint in". If there was a way to interact without going back to the dialogue box it would be more efficient. It is slow and "clunky" otherwise.

  8. A polygon option for a Pen Tool

    Recently I've noticed that I'm missing one option – switching off the Bezier anchors by the pen tool. I would like to draw a continuously (joined) straight line, without accidentally changing it into a bezier curve. While drawing fast with a Wacom pen or with a mouse, it's easy to move the cursor before jumping to the next place and thereby, by accident pull the Bezier handle and proceeding a curve. I use Affinity Designer on iPad and there exists an option for the pen tool – a polygon. I'm looking for something similar that in Illustrator.

    I woud be…

  9. Join end point to path

    I am a student at university, and I need to be able to join end points to paths without having the enter the live paint. This would give higher editing capability, and allows me to keep the stylized stroke options like calligraphy.

  11. view Anchor Points

    View Anchor Points selection under the view tab. I'd like to see Anchor Points anytime I click on an object if I have this view selected, not just a barely there blue line that is hard to tell what is clicked as it currently is when you select Show Edges under the view tab.

    Sabarirajan, please elaborate on this.

    Can you draw a mockup? Even a crude one can help to understand the exact idea you have.


    Recent versions of Illustrator have new 3D and Materials tools, which allow to create bent cylinders and other shapes. Please comment back.

  15. More Image tracing options

    It's better if you increase or make a custom image trace more than 16 you have.

  16. Add an improved scaling tool

    I create scale drawings of Vintage gliders and aircraft and use several photos on my Artboard to refer to. I need to scale these photos to match what I am drawing and this requires taking a measurement from the photo then getting out my calculator to work out the scaling factor. It would be far simpler if I could just draw a line over the required section of the photo and then tell the scaling tool the size that I need it to be and the photo is then scaled

  18. 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.

  19. 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…
