  1. Please add Illustrator option to maintain text color

    Could you please add an option for us to keep the color we chose for the text in an illustrator file we're currently working on?

    Meaning: Say I am writing text in a file, but I want separate text boxes and I want to keep the same color, rather than Illustrator defaulting back to black or whatever color was set as default in the preferences.

    I'd like to be able to check a box to keep the color I am using for the text rather than having to go back to the color and subsequently the default sizes set in…

  2. Option to show only the actual missing fonts in missing fonts list

    Please provide an option to show only the missing fonts in the top half of the missing fonts dialog box. If only the missing fonts were visible we wouldn't have to constantly scroll up and down the missing fonts list to find the yellow triangle.
    Option only, because it is useful to see all the fonts that are used in a file...

  3. A favorite fonts floating palette

    While I’m designing let’s say a poster, I an using 4 fonts,, would like to be able to access those 4 fonts anytime, instead of going to fonts, or characters , having a floating pallet so I can see the fonts and seek them immediately.
    Just like when you pull a pallets out from the tools pallet.

  4. Copy Live Type into Indesign in Preserving text boxes

    I work on graphic novels where the type layers are set in PS (ugh)
    Brought into Illustrator as editable text. Would love to be able to copy and paste the entire page as editable formatted text into InDesign,
    Currently it pastes as outlines.

  5. Auto fit text in text panel

    It would be really useful if Illustrator could autofit text within set parameters, similar to InDesign. This would minimize over matter that often occurs when importing text, especially when using the variable links.
    I mean resize the text to fit the text frame to avoid over matter and get everything in. Text frame size should not change.

  6. Find and Replace text panel not closing after every replacement

    When you need to replace multiple text in illustrator right now you need to copy the text go to Edit - Find and replace, paste your text, replace it, and then click done which results to closing the window.

    So you must reopen the window every time for the next replacement.

    You can have this option as it is in InDesign where you can copy and paste text while the window is open and the window stays open after you done replacing. Also it will be more convenient to be able to add the panel at the dock.

  8. attributi testo

    Sarebbe bello avere aggiunta la funzione "copia attributi" / "incolla attributi" nel testo così come negli oggetti, quindi uno shortcut da tastiera per, ad esempio, attribuire un font o aggiungere un grassetto o corsivo a singole parole all'interno di un testo (FreeHand lo faceva ed era comodissimo)

  9. Leerzeichen beim Wörter editieren nicht antasten!

    Wenn man ein Wort in einem Satz auswählt um es zu ändern, wird das Leerzeichen danach auch ausgewählt. Wenn ich nun das neue Wort schreibe, wird das Leerzeichen entfernt! Man muss dann immer extra das Leerzeichen erneut eingeben! In vielen anderen Textprogrammen wird das Leerzeichen nicht angetastet (ob es nun ausgewählt wird oder nicht)!

  10. Automatisches RESET oder Button für die Textformatierung bei Illustrator und InDesign

    Diese Funktion fehlt. Wenn ich viel schreibe oder Text einfüge, dann ist es mühsam, dass ich nicht die Wahl habe was bei einem neuen Textfeld bzw. neu eingefügten Text passieren soll: Letzte Formatierung beibehalten (aktuell) oder Reset zu einer Standard-Formatierung. Vielleicht reicht auch ein "RESET Textformatierung"-Button in der Menüleiste.

    Alternativ wäre es mir recht, wenn z.B. einfach nur die Funktion geändert würde bei Klick auf Formatierungsoptionen. Beispiel "Text unterstrichen". Wenn kein Text ausgewählt ist, dann ist "Text unterstrichen" dauerhaft an, wenn Text vorher markiert wurde, dann wird nur der ausgewählte Text unterstrichen und alle folgende Texte sind "normal", d.h. man…

  11. package font-family instead of font

    Sometimes I need to adjust the font style in font family like Helvectica Neue Light, Condensed, Regular and so on, However now the illustrator only makes the package the font which have been used. That means when I get the package, I only can have one font in the font family only.

  12. Save frequent missing fonts selection for future files

    I would love to be able to save or automatically apply missing font replacements.

    Scenario: Adobe is dropping support for Type 1 fonts. Thousands of my Illustrator files contain a Type 1 font family. To head things off, I was able to obtain the required newer font format for the font family, but it is now seen as a new font by Illustrator (fair enough). But, now when I open up each file I have to painstakingly replace the old fonts with the new ones. Again, this applies to thousands of files and massively slows my process down.

    The feature…

  13. LTR Digits for Middle East Settings

    In Arabic text, letters are RTL, but digits are LTR. There's no way to use multiple character styles within one paragraph, you can only set the text direction to the entire paragraph. To make the attached, I had to set the language of the digits to English and type the number in backwards (e.g. for 300g, I have typed it in as 003 for it to show like that, which requires a lot of concentration!!)

  15. Improved Type on a Path

    Type on a Path still is and always has been difficult to align. Trying to find the little cursors that allow you to adjust the end , middle, and begin points to move type around is difficult as they are so small and finicky and even blend in with the bounding box guides of the path. Having a clearer, easier way to move the type on path would be extremely helpful to everyone. I have even heard professionals teaching classes on Skillshare complain about this issue.

  16. Option to sort font list randomly instead of alphabetically

    I find myself using fonts that start with the letter A very frequently... The ability to sort the font list randomly would introduce some variety into my designs I think. Sometimes I'm looking for a font by name, but often I find myself scrolling through the list to see what catches my eye. I think sorting the list randomly would help with this.

  17. Add CSS color styling option to OpenType-SVG specification, so font colors may be altered in Illustrator

    Currently, OpenType-SVG color fonts come with pre-defined colors.

    To provide glyphs in different shades, additional stylistic sets need to be added to the font, bloating it tremendously.

    I propose to add the ability to OpenType-SVG to have certain colors of a glyph being overwritten by the application (e.g. Illustrator), so text colors can be applied to a range of glyphs just like it's done with standard monochrome glyphs.

    To do so, OpenType-SVG should be able to export a set of color reference names, referenced within the glyph's SVG. An application may then assign alternate colors to those color references, so…

  19. Make the preview of the Arabic computer Fonts connected to each other

    During our selection of one of the Arabic fonts, the font preview in the list is incorrect in the Arabic letter and it is intermittent instead of being connected as is the case with letters in the Arabic language

  20. Type on a Path Options

    Type on a Path needs significant improvements.

    • The Preview button should be sticky and the default position should be on.
    • There need to be more alignment options including Cap Height and x Height.
    • The options should be a panel not a dialogue.
    • The options should be included in a style, perhaps by adding InDesign like object styles.
    • The margins added when a path is converted to a type path should always start out at the ends of the path, not some arbitrary points along the path.
