    Asset 1-100.jpg

    when i set the typing direction :RTL the letters shows up fine but it arranges the english in front of the hebrew, and thats not good

    and when i set the typing direction :LTR the english letters flips over , but the language arrangment is good

  2. Group keyboard shortcut

    Grouping is something I use a lot but it's kind of cumbersome to do now so it would be easier to have a keyboard shortcut for it.

  3. Area type contraction

    Ability to make the boundry of the are text to be resized to the amount of text in that box with a click, maybe on the top bar. We never make the text are box to the exact amount of text, especially in copy and paste which means it has to be resized manually EVERY time. A button to make is to contract will be helpful.

  4. Select a few words at the same time

    I would like the ability to select single words at the same time in a document (helpful to put emphasis on words e.g. bolder text).

  6. Easier access to typekit options

    I noticed that the link to the external typekit web app is no longer in the type (character) tool box. I see how the whole mechanism to search is more integrated but its still harder to scroll through font weights, type custom sample text etc. I just think there could be a link to the external web app right there in the tool box still even with the updated integration so you have the option to search differently. I see that you can still get to that web app but it feel more clunky for my work flow than it…

  8. Provide more information on how to get to "Baseline Shift".- It took one day and numerous forum posts to figure it out.

    To do a type/ baseline shift in Illustrator requires that one Preference be toggled ON. That's just in order to see the option in the Type pallet. I'm sure you know which one, so I won't bother telling you. If that pref is NOT set to ON, the user will not be able to find Baseline Shift, let alone use it. I wasted an hour or so trying to find it, then gave up and did the baseline shift in photoshop. I asked on the AI Forum, and got many answers, none of which tipped me off-until I had already…

  9. type unicode characters on a Mac. Get rid of absolutely useless glyph window as you cannot search in it.

    The Glyph windows is completely, absolutely, omnipresently useless. It serves you nothing else but frustration. What good is a computer for if you cannot use it to perform a simple search? Glyph window without search capabilities is beyond comprehension. The most simple stuff a computer can do for you is search through things and you dare to present a window with thousands of glyphs for the user to squint and manually search it. How insulting! Get rid of ti, and the team behind it too, they know nothing about UX nor software development.

  10. Bug: Cannot scale a horizontal line via center box handle

    Hi,

    in Ai CC2019 I cannot scale a horizontal line via the center box handle. The only way to it, is to use the direct selection tool (A).

  11. Stop changing artwork location when changing paragraph justification

    When working with type, it is incredibly annoying that all of it shifts it's location when you're changing paragraph justification. I'm not sure for what reason you would want it to move the actual type and not just shift the justification icon box shown at the type baseline.

  12. Ligatures are broken

    OpenType ligatures are broken in Illustrator. When the ligatures feature is enabled most ligatures remain different letters. If ligatures are input directly from the glyphs palette they will decompose into different letters. Even if ligatures are disabled they still decompose into different letters when input from the glyphs palette.

  13. Don't force baseline shift settings to be sticky

    For me, I only rarely need to adjust baseline shift settings (usually when I want to adjust the verticality of a trademark symbol relative to body copy.

    Unfortunately, Illustrator retains the baseline shift value, so subsequent text has it applied by default, forcing me to reset it. I'd absolutely love it if that setting defaulted back to zero, given the infrequency with which I actually need to use it (for me, it's the exception, not the rule). Generally after my occasional need for a baseline-adjusted character, I'm forced to type in new text, manually reset the baseline shift value to…

  15. Fullcap function doesn't work for ydieresis

    The fullcaps function doesn't work for the character “ÿ” y-dieresis. All the other letters work correctly, and it works in inDesign too, the problem seems to appear only in AI and PS

  16. Rotate all text in place

    Being able to select all Text on an art board and rotate it all in place would be extremely helpful versus having to rotate each text box individually after rotating an art board.

  17. Font auto-activation for fonts stored on local PC

    The CC 2019 update Activate Adobe Font function is brilliant, but it would be even better if it did the same for fonts on my own computer too

  18. Editable Illustrator text in AfterEffects

    For years we have been copy and pasting text from Powerpoint into AfterEffects because the Illustrator file does not open in AfterEffects with editable text. Takes us ages and introduces many errors.

    Illustrator file text should just open in AfterEffects in 2018!
