  2. Perspective tool should work on ANYTHING.

    You should be able to use the Perspective tool on ANYTHING. Many other packages allows you to put a perspective on editable text!! The same goes for Bitmap Images.... You should be able to but a box around ANYTHING and use the perspective tool on it. Why-O-Why do we have to convert text to curves to be able to put perspective on it??? Once it has perspective you Should be able to edit the text and keep the perspective on it!!!!

    Illustrator is Still Way Behind Other Similar Packages...

    Thanks

  3. Combine Illustrator and InDesign into a one stop tool.

    Would it be that much of a stretch? I'm, seriously, curious.

  4. "View colors as Word"

    Adobe apps and Office do not play well together.
    Even in RGB graphics in Illustrator don't translate well in Word. Can there be a "View As..." option to show how Word will translate them?
    Or....ORRRRRRRRRRR....(this is what SHOULD happen...)
    Everyone jump on Microsoft and bully them into adding a CMYK color space to Word/Office.

  6. crop borders

    Whenever I crop an image, a thing, light-colored border automatically appears around the newly cropped image, making merging two adjacent images by hand annoying. Removing this automatic border would be very helpful.

  7. Exhibition only file error when saving

    After saving a file a few times, I start getting an error that says it is a visualization only file - even when I'm working on a new canvas I've just created. Why is it happening? How do I fix it? It disturbs me a lot, 'cause I need to save the file with a different name every time I get this error to proceed.

  8. Move "Share on Behance" and "Save for Microsoft Office" and add Quick Export

    I do a lot of "rapid fire" exporting as I work mostly on card games in Illustrator. So a small change on 50-75+ cards requires me to (File, Export, PNG, Use Art Board, Overwrite, PNG Options, Ok) 50-75 times. Most annoyingly in this process, is when my hand slips and I click on Share on Behance or Save for Microsoft Office when I'm trying to Export. I think these options should be moved to their own category under "File" because I've never exported straight to Behance (I always export then upload separately if at all) and Save for Microsoft Office…

  10. Modify the open dialog (icons views)

    Modify the file open dialog when the view is one of the icons views so that it displays a thumbnail of the file itself rather than the generic AI icon. I frequently want to open an Illustrator file in a folder that contains LOTS of illustrator files ("Owl 15, Owl 16, etc). At that point I have to stop and bring up Bridge so I can see that the owl with the glasses is number 23. I'd open it with Bridge, but that doesn't work when Illustrator is already open. Maybe fix THAT bug while you're at it ;-)

  12. Edit Character properties in a mixed selection

    When having a complex set of objects selected, including one ore more Text Objects, it would be nice to have access to the Character/Paragraph properties.

    Current version simply ignores any changes when something else is selected besides a Text Object.

  13. Ability to set line width based on the angle of the line

    I'd like to be able to set the line width based on the angle of the line, so if the line width is 10 pt on horizontal lines, and you set it so it's 90% of that on vertical lines, it automatically sets it to 95% on 45 degree lines etc.

    In the example image you'd just have to draw a circle, set it to a 10 pt line and then set the thickest point (vertical) to 400% of the thinnest part (the horizontal).

    The controls for this would be simple, all you need to be able to do is…

    This effect can be achieved with Calligraphy brushes. Set one up in Brushes panel, use angle 0, change the size to be the thickest weight you want, and use the roundness value to change it at thinner horizontal parts. If you want 4x difference, set it to 25% of the set size. Done — apply it to any path you want.

  14. Some computers cannot successfully output SVG files

    Unable to output SVG in the format of a style attribute. May be the reason for incompatibility with the system

  15. Guides opacity

    Sometimes it’s too hard to see through thin lines in my art work. Opacity does not work on guides, so most of the times I don't get to see what is behind a guide. If you enable guides to work with opacity then it will be much easier to see what’s behind guide lines. Thanks

  16. keyboard unable to type words when running

    Once I run the Illustator, my keyboard unable to type words, and the mouse arrow keeps running the loading icon. I uninstall the version of 23.0.6 and installed 23.0.5, now it looks fine.

  17. More easily work with text

    It would be great if like in PS we could select multiple text layers and apply changes to them at once. Like changing the font size or type, rather than having to go layer by painstaking layer :) What takes seconds in PS could take me HOURS in Illustrator :(

  18. Student Subscription for Individual Apps

    There should be a student subscription for individual apps.

    I only need illustrator, but $20 a month for one app is still overwhelming for a student, especially since I don’t get paid for the work I do on the app. It wouldn’t make sense to spend so much on the Creative Cloud just to use one app. 60% off, like Creative Cloud, would be much appreciated, but even 40-50% would do.

  19. Allow auto update scheduling

    The auto update feature is nice, but it might become a bit of a hassle as you need to close the apps to update.

    I would propose to have a drop down option to allow the Adobe CC suite to

    • Download the updates on the background and then ask when to install, thus not getting in the way of on going work

    • More importantly, allow an scheduling of said background download, so it can be downloaded during the least network stressed time of the day.
