  3. Choose Which Paragraph Style is Based on Another Paragraph Style

    When creating a new paragraph style, it would be very helpful to choose which other style it's based on. Currently, the only option is the default paragraph style. This is very nice when you have one base style, and you can build on it with other styles.

  4. Arabic language management in the Italian version of illustrator

    It is necessary to be able to manage texts in Arabic also in the Italian version of illustrator. At the moment if I copy some Arabic text from Word and paste it on an illustrator text box, all features are lost and it is not possible to work. The solution is just to change the Illustrator language. The handling of Arabic texts should also be able to be used in other language versions.

  5. 日本語での作業時にフォントの選択が困難を極めます。

    日本語版を使用しているとフォントの数が極端に多くなります。モリサワ、フォントワークスなどがサブスクリプションで多数の書体が使えるようになっており、そのうえフォントの名前が頭にA-OTFなどのベンダーのつけた記号によって、記憶しているフォント名順にならず、さらに欧文フォントが多数インストールされており、とどめにAdobeTypeが加わり、フォントの並び順がめちゃくちゃでかつスクロールも以上に長く、使いたいフォントにすぐたどり着けません。最近使用したフォントをフォントメニューの頭に並ぶ設定にすると、こんどは実際に書類のフォントを変えながら探すときに、毎回フォントメニューの頭に戻ってしまい、たとえば欧文でAの名前から順に探すために毎回ながいスクロールをするハメになります。また、ラップトップの小さい画面で選べるようにポップアップしたフォントメニューの天地幅が狭く、大型モニタで作業する多くのユーザーは少しの範囲しかないポップアップで延々スクロールしなければなりません。提案は3点。 1|フォントのポップアップの天地幅を大きなモニタで長くして欲しい。 2|フォントメニューのフォント名の並び順を任意に変えられるようにして欲しい。 3|微妙に違うフォントが増えたので、フォント名の右側だけではなく、固定ウインドウにもっと大きなサンプルを表示して欲しい。以上です。英語版以外の特に日本語版のフォント選択の不便さは誰もが困っているはずです。非能率このうえない状態をユーザにいつまで強いるのでしょうか。改善を強く望みます。

  6. Please make default character styles accessible by all new illustrator documents and easy to manage and edit.

    Please make it much, much easier to cause Illustrator to default to a common set of character and paragraph styles. Having to go into a hidden user folder to modify print.ai is an insult. In the styles menu, please include a "save to common styles". I have thousands of lines of code that automate adobe illustrator, and every time the software is updated everything comes crashing down. Having a shared, common repository of character styles that are available in every document should be simple and easy to manage.

  7. "EmojiOne Color" font in AI CC 2019

    "EmojiOne Color" is a "color-only" font in AI CC 2019. Although it has "fallback" B&W characters that work fine in earlier versions of Illustrator the font CANNOT be change to B&W in AI CC 2019. This is a HUGE flaw in the font and should be made to work in either color or black and white mode.

  9. Changing color of selected letters

    It is very difficult to change the color of a selected letters in a text if you can not see the color as it is because it is inverted when they are selected. So you are changing the color but you don't know the real appearence, , for that you have to deselect the text each time. Can this be fixed for a future version? thank you

  10. Fix Find & Replace to keep formating of font being changed

    Find & Replace has never worked correctly and still doesnt. If I do a find and replace Illustrator will change the formatting of the text being replaced to the formatting nearest to it, it doesnt keep the formatting of the characters being changed if they are different than the characters either side of it within the same text block.

  11. Spell Check Ignore Icon Fonts

    Spell check should recognize icon fonts and stop recommending corrections to them. In a document with many icons, I don't want to have to add every icon into the dictionary or have to know that if I capitalize that word it would actually break the icon it creates.

  12. Remap ⌥← and ⌥→ (Option + Left / Right) to jump back/ahead one word

    Make ⌥← and ⌥→ default for jumping one word back and forth or respectively mark text when pressing "shift" as used to in Premiere Pro and by default on Mac. Same issue exists in Photoshop where these shortcuts are annoyingly used to adjust kerning.

  13. Cannot group Text objects with right-click

    Illustrator CC2018 (22.1)
    Windows 10 and Mac OSX High Sierra 10.13.3

    When I select two or more Text objects (point, area, etc.), I cannot group them using right-click (it works

    It works with other objects, or with Text and other objects, but not when all my selections are only Text objects.

    Once grouped (with CMD-G for example), it is possible to ungroup them with right-click, though.

  14. Recent updates have made working with type more difficult

    Using type in illustrator used to be a breeze. Now it seems you need near pixel-perfect accuracy to highlight or to select the type box. Often now you will just end up creating a new type box when trying to highlight type already present. Honestly, it worked great before whatever update changed this and now it's somewhat irritating to use. It's not a major issue really, but sometimes the old 'if it isn't broken, don't fix it' advice should be heeded.

  15. Placeholder text relative to your document

    When you choose the type tool and click, the placeholder text defaults to 12pt. This means that the text is tiny if you have a large artboard (see attached). It would be cool if the placeholder text was sized relative to your artboard instead, so that it's easy to see and work with.

  16. Adjusting the curve of the "type on the path" and be able to keep the type from distorting

    This was actually a feature that USED to work on previous illustrators, since this month's update (October 2018), it stopped working. Basically, you make a circle shape, then you type on a path. But sometimes you want to be able to adjust/transform the curve (while keeping the Type same size and proportion) to see how it would lay without distorting the type. *Not the same as holding shift because that just keeps the curve the same shape, and it also make the type bigger or smaller. See image for a mock up of what it should look like in action.…

  17. Typography Swapping Window (just like “Recolor Artwork”

    I use Edit>Edit Colors>Recolor Artwork so very often that I have replaced the “Rulers” keyboard shortcut with “Recolor Artwork.”

    “Character Styles” and “Paragraph Styles” are invaluable tools, but I REALLY would love to have a dialogue box identical to that of “Recolor Artwork,” except for swapping & changing type, character & paragraph rules/styles. If necessary, I can create a mockup of the UI that I have in my head for this, but I’m not planning to, unless it is necessary.

  18. Copy and paste formatting to text

    Please add a very important abbreviation
    It is paste formatting
    (And copy the same text)
    I suggest its shortcut is ctrl + shift + V
    and
    ctrl + shift + C copy shortcut
    As in MS Word
    It's an important shortcut and makes it much easier at work. Please let me know when it's activated

  19. Identify Newly Installed Fonts in Adobe Illustrator

    Problem:

    Managing large font collections in Adobe Illustrator can be challenging, especially when installing new fonts. With hundreds or even thousands of fonts, identifying recently added ones becomes a tedious task, often requiring manual scrolling and searching through the entire font menu.

    Proposed Solution:

    Implement a feature in Illustrator that allows users to easily identify newly installed fonts. Here are two potential options:

    Filter by Install Date: Add a sorting option within the font menu that displays fonts by their installation date. This would allow users to quickly see the most recently added fonts at the top of the list.
