  1. Allow Artboards to snap to the grid

    I'm working on a heavily modular layout and the modules are snapping to the grid nicely. However when duplicating the artboard, the artboard will not snap to the grid.

    This therefore throws the modules slightly off the grid as the Artboard position has to be matched by eye.

    I've also downloaded and tried the CC 2019 pre-release and it still does not allow snapping of artboards to the grid.

    Please fix this, thanks.

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 24.3.0 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!

  2. Snapping unexpectedly disabled when drawing to an Artboard edge

    When using the rectangle tool or other drawing tools, you can snap to the edge of an artboard, but you cannot snap to grid lines that intersect with the artboard edge.

    This makes things complicated if you are designing relative to the artboard all the time with Snap to Grid or Snap to Pixel enabled. I have to workaround it, snapping inside or outside the artboard edge first, then moving the point an exact increment to match where the artboard edge and grid line intersect.

    Notice that in my screen recording, this happens even at the beginning when I first…

  3. Show Smart guides when using Curvature Tool

    When using the curvature tool to creat a symmetric curve, it would be nice when smart guides (to the center) are shown.

  4. Make smart guides stop working with Ctrl key pressed, as in Photoshop and InDesign

    The function of disabling smart guides by pressing the Ctrl key in Photoshop and InDesign, allows you to adjust the position of an object more accurately without having to go to the menu to disable them.

  5. Temporarily disable snapping while dragging objects or anchor points

    Currently when you move objects or anchor points while you have Snap to Point and/or Smart Guides turned on it is necessary to stop what you're doing and switch them off then switch them back on again when you've finished moving.

    This is very disruptive to workflow. Productivity would be significantly increased if there was a modifier key set to disable all snapping while moving an object or anchor.

    Obviously all modifier keys and combinations are currently used up for use before clicking an object or starting a process. However the control key (similar to its function in Photoshop) or…

  6. Activating the middle of a path

    In CorelDraw, the centres of paths are 'magnetic', so that, for example, guide lines can snap there. To find the centre in Illustrtor I have to add a point via script or AG PathScribe, which otherwise only inflates the document.

  7. Line relations

    In SOLIDWORKS there is a feature to assign lines/shapes a relationship (parallel, perpendicular for straight lines; concentric, cordial for circles; etc.). And one of the most useful is the tangent relationship.

    I would like to be able to, with the click of a button, assign a pair of lines/shapes a certain relationship that is persistent and updates all related elements when moved, rotated, etc. This would be similar to the join commant that allows two points to be connected and act as a single piece.

    This would speed up a lot of the work I do with icons etc, where…
