  1. Ability to create object clones

    This idea is inspired in mograph features of Cinema4D.
    It would be great to have an instance (or clone) of an object so that when you alter the shape of the source object, the clone alters automatically.

    This would also be a powerful simmetry tool as well but much more flexible since you can position the clone wherever you want.
    You would be able to clone it several times in a grid and alter all clones by fixing one single object (similar to what can today be achieved with Transform menu, but with much much more flexibility and control).

  3. Asset name in Export panel = Symbol name

    It would be a huge time saver for a symbol to be named in the assets panel after the name of the symbol instead of the name of the instance.

  4. Shaping (intersection and trimming) to work normally

    It would be very nice to have shaping tools (intersection and trimming) to work as expected.

    For this:
    • When intersecting, leave both input objects (do not remove) and inherit the properties of the last selected object

    • When trimming (cutting objects) cut the last selected object with the first selected. Leave both objects. Maintain the properties of the last selected object.

    Very simple - the 'front-minus-back', 'expand appearance' and 'alt-clicking' tricks are confusing annoying and over-complicated.

  6. Eyedropper shortcut

    If I have a box with a gradient stroke (as an example) and I want to then fill it, if I use the eyedropper to grab the color from another object, it overrides and deletes the stoke. I would like to be able to use the eyedropper on fill or stroke without deleting it's counterpart. Right now it's a long process of clicking off my shape, eyedropping the color, copying the color value, reselecting the object, double clicking the fill or stroke, and pasting in the value. It adds up to a lot of time lost for something that should…

    To make Eyedropper pick and apply only fill, without modifying the stroke, you need to open the tool’s options, and uncheck the ‘Focal Stroke’ option in the left column. This will force Illustrator to ignore the stroke from the source object, and your target object will keep its original stroke.

    Use other options there to fine tune the tool to your needs.

    There is a similar resolved request that is about the same thing — https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/38241262

  7. Addition to changing the corners of all vectorpoints

    addition for changing the corners of all vectorpoints in the group.I can change a vectorpoint seperately with the white angle tool but not all at the same time.
    (to change the direction of a vectorpoint. To set the points in perspective)

    Right know I could only resize them and rotate

  8. I usually use graphics from Libraries and Symbols to sharing icons, logotypes, and e.t.c. I would like to lock size ratio to these graphics.

    I usually use graphics from Libraries and Symbols to sharing icons, logotypes, and e.t.c. I would like to lock size ratio to these graphics. I hate warped logos and rectangle icons instead of square!

  10. Notepad like text editor for better rewrites

    Until Outline to text is added could you please add an inbuilt text editor which can make retyping text a much less hassle.
    I want it to be able to help me match my newly rewritten type best match the outline converted text.

  11. Can't place the anchor point at the spot I want

    Anchor point keeps on placing at the spot I do not want. If I click on the canvas to place an anchor point, it places distances away from where I wish to place.

  16. I have found effects and transparency to be problematic

    I have found effects and transparency to be problematic in the past for print, and svg unless you convert the graphic to raster. Which then defeats the benefits of vector.

    What if you had a feature that could take the colors used in the effect or transparency and convert that to a basic gradient. "convert effect to gradient" or "convert transparency to gradient"

  17. Radial interface (popup) for previewing ALL THE SWATCHES.... S I M U L T A N E O U S L Y.

    If a user wants to preview ALL the swatches in the swatch library at once, the time and sequence of events to do so is extremely unnecessarily tedious.

    "Preview all swatches" button -> BAM: radial view of all swatches on screen. (doesn't even have to be legible. text can be upside down. Maybe rotate it with the mouse wheel. Click one swatch set -> then Bam! That's the swatch docked to the panel. All the others dissapear. or "Unsummon the swatches" button.

    "Smithers Release the hounds"

  18. Support for Microsoft SCUP

    We have invested very large in SCCM infrastructure to support Global distribution of client applications. To speed up distribution of Adobe product versions we have analyzed Adobe Update Server solution.
    Based on our global environment that would require an enormous investment create a Adobe Update Server at every site location.

    We would like Adobe to add support for Microsoft SCUM, that would speed up product distribution without very large investment.

  19. A tool to drag and make objects 3D

    A tool that would be used to click and drag an object into varying aspects of 3D, rather than guessing and drowning in menus with the normal 3D effects.
