  2. Scale pattern not object

    I was on the Ai help desk with Nikhail, and he told me to write to you - I do surface pattern design and you are supposed to be able to use the shortcut of S and ~ to scale pattern and not an object. But it pulls up the Pen tool for me. We reinstalled latest CC and he worked on it for a long time to no avail. HELP! Otherwise you have to go through like ten steps to transform pattern and not object, everyone else in my class seems to be successful - I must have a…

  6. Maintaining colour levels between PS & AI on linked files??

    Issue: linked PS(CMYK) file into AI(CMYK) appears in AI with difference colour values from the original PS file.

    Only way around it I was told by Adobe is to directly "open" the PS doc in AI not "place" to maintain the colour values. They also had told me that this is the expect behaviour of the software.

    I feel this is a serious flaw for files for print, I have always used AI to set up my packaging print files and never had an issue I think this must be a recent update.

    Does anyone known of a work around…

    It would be nice if I did not have to 'click' on a symbol or text numerous times to select it.

  8. Simple requests go unnoticed.

    There is a function in Illustraor that allows selection by whole or by path and it is called: Object selection by path only. It is in the prefs under selection tab. This SHOULD BE also in the top bar as VERY often I need to switch it when working on paths, especially in shadows work.

  9. Width tool feature

    Hi

    As you can see from the file the split in the lower right corner is much bigger than the rest. And I was told that that is because AI treats the starting point of an object different. This makes it difficult to make symmetrict shapes without a lot of extra work.

    Therefor I was hoping this was something You could do something about in a future update

    with best regards

  10. Mini Map

    Hello Adobe Team. I really don't know why you don't implement a little MINIMAP into Adobe Illustrator that provides a little preview of the actual work and makes it possible to zoom in by clicking on it. Working with Illustrator would be much easier if I had a little map window where I could just click on a section of my artwork and zoom straight to that point. So I wouldn't have to zoom in and adjust again and again after zooming out. And I could always see the whole picture. Maybe it's nonsense or not possible but I think…

  12. Allow calligraphic strokes for default fill/stroke

    I regularly use a calligraphic stroke in my work. It would be good if a calligraphic stroke could be applied to the default fill/stroke settings via the Graphic Styles panel. This would save a lot of time in my daily workflow.

  13. Draw with paintbrushes as if you were really drawing!

    For example, some of the brushes when drawing appear as a purple pathway first before turning into a line from the brush you have chosen. This can ve very frustration if you are using for example the water colour brushes. You should also have a circle radius around the pointer before drawing that enables us to see the size of the brush as you can on some features in photoshop. This would be very helpful to artists to see the size of the brush they are using and the brush lines you have chosen to appear instantly as if it…

  15. Layer clipping mask (a bit like a paste-inside on steroids!)

    I'd like to be able to convert a shape into a layer clipping mask which would then allow sub-layers to be created/converted so that they only remain visible within in the shape's boundary and would subsequently honour any sub-layer effects applied therein.

    Why?

    Well at the moment I have to expand any paths with effects applied to layers so that any effect is captured inside the clipping mask. This results in a destructive edit to my artwork and file duplication so that I can revert to the previous editable state when I need to make any changes.

    Background:
    I regularly…

  16. 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…

  19. Change Art Brush Angle

    Currently when using an art brush you can only change the direction the brush going in 4 directions. I wish I could make the brush go in any direction or angle I wanted. You can do this on the procreate app on iPad so I am surprised that it cannot be done in Adobe Illustrator.
