  1. Make Global Edit work with parts of compound shapes

    When you use Direct/Group Selection tool and select a part of compound shape, that you know exist on canvas, you expect Global Edit to see them too and allow you to edit these copies simultaneously — but no, Illustrator does not recognize them.
    Please finish Global Edit, it is not complete.

  2. Increase maximum Keyboard increment for cursor keys

    Keyboard increment Preference is maxed to 1296...

    I need 1920 at least. Why not make it as big as the max artboard size?

  3. Lock objects but keep them editable

    Macromedia Freehand had a feature that let you lock an element (like a text block) so it would'n move, but you coudl still edit the content. That was an exelent feature that let you edit a text serval times with out moving it by error.

  5. A few requests for accessibility.

    A few requests for accessibility.

    As we know, Adobe market themselves as the premier in editing software - the best of the best.

    This is simply untrue. Illustrator is such a difficult program to access and this leads to more people being unable to use it.

    Firstly, the custom brushes are nearly impossible to make as a pattern brush if you don’t want a ridiculous amount of tiling. How about instead of making it tile in a grid, you give the option to have it only tile vertically or horizontally? This would help people who are on fashion and architecture…

  6. "Multiple Record Layout" data merge feature.

    I love the "Multiple Record Layout" data merge feature in InDesign. However my merged documents are often opened in Illustrator by the end user to make changes. Currently my client wants a full vector file for laser cutting shapes with custom etched names. They do not translate well with strokes becoming their own object and lines of text disconnecting. The idea to data merge 200+ names in IN makes perfect sense, but in this case the client asked they be done in AI and each name and custom info needs to be brought in by hand manually one name at…

  7. 「カンバスを左右/上下に反転」機能の追加も希望します。

    1.説明
    今回のベータ版ではビュー回転機能がつきとても嬉しいです。可能ならPhotoshop同様に「カンバスを左右/上下に反転」機能の追加も希望します。

    1. 機能のメリット 鉛筆ツールとペンタブレットでフリーハンドでベジェを描く際に反転機能があることで手首のスナップを活かしやすい向きで描画ができ、ストロークを活かしてより良いイラストが描けます。

  8. Preference setting for a common "root" folder for add-on files

    It would be great if the Illustrator Preferences had a way to specify a central root folder for the location of (and default save location) for add-ons, such as Brushes, Graphic styles, Swatches Templates, and others. (Similar to the existing "Additional Plug-ins Folder" setting).

    Illustrator currently seems to have very scatterbrained way of handling files, which I am sure there is some history or reason for, depending on the team that happened to develop that section of code.

    Examples:

    If you save Brush, Symbol, Graphic Styles, ..., libraries, when it defaults to want to save under a long winding path,…

  9. Illustrator 2021 is constantly crashing, resulting in my not being able to use it.

    stop it from crashing. Whatever you did with the 2021 version, reverse it. It's worse than useless. I cannot get any production.

  10. Illustrator 2021 Won't Open

    Every time I try to open AI/2021 the icon just bounced and the App Panel just hangs and nothing happens. I'm using a 2017 version of the 2013 desktop, with plenty of RAM, all my other apps work except this - any tips boffins?

  12. Little display problem with GPU enabled

    Hi, I bought an Imac 27" with 5K Retina display.

    I noticed that when I zoom some vector shape, the lines are not too clean. They seem like bitmapped. When I click Command+Y (show outlines) and I click it again, the lines appear clean. I uploaded a little video about my problem.

    I wrote in Adobe community, they suggested me to turn off GPU Performance. If i do that the images appears fine but Illustrator become too slow.

    So they recommended me to report my issue here.

    Thanks for your time.

  13. Illustrator 2020 tarda demasiado en cerrar los archivos

    Se tarda hasta 4 segundos en cerrar un archivo ya guardado, suelo abrir 10 archivos al mismo por mi trabajo y es insoportable esperar a que cierren sin poder hacer nada más, en Windows 10.

  16. Lock Layer/Object That Stays Locked as a PDF

    I have a flyer with text and graphics to send out to end-users. I want them to be able to edit the text in Acrobat but not touch the logo and graphics. I have tried to lock the object/layer but Acrobat ignores my wishes and makes everything editable in the pdf.

  17. Power Efficiency

    Since I've moved to working remotely entirely, I've noticed how quickly using several Adobe programs burns through my laptop battery. I'm running a brand new 16" Macbook Pro with the latest MacOS Catalina version, and I'm lucky if I get an hour and a half of battery life while running InDesign and Illustrator at the same time. When I review what is using the most battery life, my Mac lists InDesign, Illustrator, and Core Sync as the main culprits.

    Now, I understand that these programs at times are fairly graphically intensive, but the battery life I'm getting is absymal, and…
