  1. Addition to changing the corners of all vectorpoints

    addition for changing the corners of all vectorpoints in the group.I can change a vectorpoint seperately with the white angle tool but not all at the same time.
    (to change the direction of a vectorpoint. To set the points in perspective)

    Right know I could only resize them and rotate

  2. 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 abl\ility 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"..

  3. Make the paintbrush more user friendly.

    LIterally the most illogical system. If you change one part of a brush your customizing it reverts to the older one. Worked with this for a couple years and forgot how dissapointing it was. MAKE THE PAINTBRUSH TOOL MORE USER FRIENDLY.

  4. Can't place the anchor point at the spot I want

    Anchor point keeps on placing at the spot I do not want. If I click on the canvas to place an anchor point, it places distances away from where I wish to place.

  5. Better drivers for monoprice drawing tablet

    Drawing with monoprice drawing tablets causes random drawing effects. Trying to draw a straight line will cause loops, be off screen, etc. Only with brush tool currently. Drawing will occur without pressure just hovering above the tablet.

  6. Stroked Object Transform Bug Constrain Error Adobe Illustrator CC 2017-2018

    When using the transform panel to resize an object or multiple objects, it goes without saying if you select constrain, there should be confidence it will scale respectively. A circle remains a circle, a square a square, a 16:9 Graphic stays 16:9 etc. etc.

    Unfortunately I have noticed a very concerning bug where if one of the objects has a stroke, it will not transform constrained. I noticed because the object I grabbed had a perfect circle, that seems maybe 5% horizontally compressed afterward.

    I have done this screencast to show the bug does not occur on non-stroked objects- only…

  7. Refining pressure sensitivity

    Just like pencil drawing refining.
    Using tablet, I would like to redefine stroke size with pressure sensitivity when using brushing tools on a selected line.
    After the first brushing, it only modifies shape not brush size.

    Please I'm waiting this for a long time and I'm so surprised it still does not exist.

  8. Live preview of paths while editing

    I would expect that the shape or a path while transforming would be rendered in a way as it will look at the end of my editing. Now, when i move handles or points / transform the object, the original shape stays the same and changes shows only as a line in the color of the layer. I understand, that for precision-transformation it's beter to see just the thin line (smart guides, snapping etc.), but while reshaping curves it would be great to see the final shape in real time.

  9. Pattern Brush Problem with Expand Appearance

    I want to paint a topographic card (map) with complex Strokes for the streets and rivers and so on.

    After creating different Pattern Brushes i would create a solid line for export to an other program.

    After choosing the Stroke with an used Pattern Brush i would "expand appearance" for getting a clean version without strokes.
    The Result is a lot of segmented curves and destroyed formes.

  10. Editing the handles from a point in a vector line/shape.

    When editing the handles from a point in a vector line/shape, it usually takes high accuracy to select the handle. It can be very frustrating to try and grab a handle, and you end up grabbing the shape underneath it instead - and moving the shape instead of adjusting the handle. I guess the tolerance on how close the cursor needs to be to the handle, has something to do with this. Maybe putting in a different logic that will understand that if a point on a line is selected and it displays the handles - then it is highly…

  11. Expanding scatter brush without boxes

    When I create a scatter brush of random circles and then expand the appearance, it creates outlines of all the circles, but also adds in a box around each circle. When I 'Unite' the shapes the boxes are included and there are too many to have to go in and delete the boxes manually.

  13. Add Anchor Tool: Make it easier to add multiple anchors

    When doing a complex drawing, I often start with a simple shape and then use the "Add Anchor Point" tool to add points to a line, near where I plan to place them (by clicking and dragging). For instance I'm drawing a partially constructed "Death Star" for a T-shirt I'm designing. I started with a circle, and on one side of the circle, I'm creating the (cartoonish) effect of a "ragged edge". This requires a sh*t load of anchor points, which have to be created by clicking on the perimeter of the founding circle, then moving slightly along the line,…

  14. brush tool

    When drawing a complex shape with the brush tool it just stops working after a certain amount of time. Im not sure if it is because it has used too many points to make the shape or what, but its very frustrating. FIX YOUR PROGRAM PLEASE.

  15. Merge and tile collection of images

    Collections of images should be able to be merged into one image and tiled. That would make it a lot easier to make patterns.

  16. Sometimes when I use the Shift (m) tool, I get duplicate layers. Is there a tool to only select the top layers and delete bottom layers?

    Sometimes when using the shift (m) tool, I delete out centers of objects, and then it creates multiple layers as duplicates. I must put a stroke on the top layer so that It can be cut out by my plotter. Well if there are duplicate layers, then all the layers get the same stroke, and then my plotter cuts multiple cut lines. Is there a tool to only highlight the top showing layers, and delete any duplicate layers underneath?

  17. dashed line gap size

    please allow the gap size to be completely variable. right now max gap is 13.88". This feature would be useful for putting grommet marks on banners, normally 24" spacing but can be many different spacings ( but not on the same banner). Thanks Bob

  18. Transform by Reference Line Numerically

    I would love to see a "Transform by Reference Line Numerically" feature where user draws a line across an object in any direction, then is able to specify the size they want. This is helpful for raster images where there is no actual vector line to accurately resize to. I use embroidery digitizing software and this is a cool feature. Wilcom Software Transform by Reference Line Numerically.

    I've included a screen shot of the Wilcom Manual to hopefully explain better than i can articulate.

  19. 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
