  1. Character panel in Properties Tab needs just one more row, please!

    The Properties Panel is great. It contains about 98% of every tool I need typically. However, I would be great to have at least ONE MORE ROW of the Character panel visible. Certainly everyone uses Scale when setting type? It's a fundamental necessity. This would prevent having to click MORE OPTIONS every single time just to horizontal scale. Simple but huge. Thank you.

  2. Please Address Ongoing Bugs in Font Activation

    Despite recently getting a fix, there is still a problem involving fonts deactivating, and Illustrator listing those same fonts as active.
    I'm still constantly going to the website to deactivate and reactivate fonts, and it's annoying.
    Just this afternoon I had this problem with Lato, HWZ Artz, and Wigwag. However I've seen this problem with many others before.
    Can't we just store these things locally and keep them there??

  4. Diacritic Positioning

    To add Diacritic Positioning Rules preset options (similar to InDesign) in the Middle Eastern features.

    It'd be handy when dealing with Arabic fonts that have their diacritics off, especially when dealing with paragraphs, instead of doing it manually.

  6. Font style not applying correctly

    Using the character window.
    When trying to alter pre-typed text, changing using Font Family menu in character window works, but changing using Font Style menu does not (the window states that it has changed, but the preview does not show the change)

    Operating System: Mac OS 11.4
    Illustrator Version: Beta - 25.5 360

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 26.0.0 which is available worldwide now.

    Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

  8. The option to select the text on the active artboard and not just the whole document.

    The option to select the text on the active artboard and not just the whole document. Presently I can select all text elements, I can then flatten/outline the text. But... if I need to outline the text on the active artboard, that would save a lot of time.

  9. Warning when a file uses PostScript Type 1 fonts

    Illustrator should put up a warning when a file is opened that contains Type 1 fonts, so the user is aware of that.
    - Link the warning to the EOL announcement, to Find/Replace resp. Adobe Fonts
    - User should be able to disable the warning
    - The warning should not pop up when there is no Type 1 font used in the file
    - Maybe this could be scriptable, so people can include it in large scale file checks

  12. Illustrator - Text format

    Hi,

    This may be a problem specific to biologists, but I often have imported figures with text that has to be partially italicized (species names mostly). It would be very helpful if text formatting commands could be repeated by a keyboard shortcut - preferably Ctrl/Cmd Y so my fingers wouldn't have to learn anything new.

    It would also be useful if Find and Replace included a formatting option, so all instances of a particular string could be bolded or italicized or whatever.

    Thanks,

    Barbara

  13. Allow user to set type font and size, and keep it until selecting a different font and size

    I think it would be great if the program “remembered” which type font and size I was working with before in the same file, and keep it that way until I change it. It would also be great to be able to set the type and size across the program if desired, and have it be saved that way until I change it to a different font/size. Because right now, it always automatically goes to the default font and size, which is inconvenient, especially since the default size is 48 point, which is HUGE.

  16. To be able to size and line space text based on a capitol curve letter "C", "O" or "S" and to have exact width without tracking.

    I create a lot of graphics for signage using Illustrator and most depend on actual sizing and spacing of the text. If I put 12" letters and convert to outlines the text is is really 25% smaller. So I eather have to outline the text and lose editability or I have to eyeball a clipping mask to the curve letter and rezize the cliping mask to the correct size. Also the width should be based on the actual vectors and not the letters with Tracking (Kerning). If I add 100 tracking to the text, it is wider then the actual…

  17. Text does not change the size of it when increased the size of the text box anymore

    Since the updates, the text size does not increase proportionally (holding the SHIFT Key down), or non-proportionally when re-scaled the text box, I loved that feature and I'd request you to bring that feature back.

    Thanks and regards,

    Arieona Burse

  20. Free Distort Zoom

    You guys should allow Free Distort to be zoomed-up on in the Free Distort window. It'd be nice to be able to zoom up real close into that window like one can on an artboard.
