  3. Improve your UX/program behaviour for god's sake

    Illustrator is the worst program I have ever work with, an that's an opinion I share with a lot of designers. Nothing is logic, everything is a nonsense and I lost A LOT of time trying to make so simple things. Photoshop is awesome, after effects is awesome, don't know what happen to you with Illustrator, but please make a review of how it works and fix it

  4. Unify Fill tool + gradient tool under properties(appearance)

    Now we have 3 "ways" or windows to pick color from which is confusing. Unify everything under same roof like in other design apps.

  6. Live preview of paths while editing

    I would expect that the shape or a path while transforming would be rendered in a way as it will look at the end of my editing. Now, when i move handles or points / transform the object, the original shape stays the same and changes shows only as a line in the color of the layer. I understand, that for precision-transformation it's beter to see just the thin line (smart guides, snapping etc.), but while reshaping curves it would be great to see the final shape in real time.

  7. 9-point magnetic object-to-grid (or-grid to-object) without smart guides

    Could you consider a feature used in Esko Graphics (Artpro) for the placement of objects (9-point grid) to a crosshair or placing a crosshair to an object. This would expand current align and artboard functions into one clean and user friendly feature. Would also improve functions such as Mirror, Scale, Paste in place, copying to correct location across various files even if rulers are not set the same. For more details see: http://docs.esko.com/docs/en-us/artpro
    I can expand on this for you on request. Might answer a lot of similar requests into one new feature!

  8. Save Ai file to a working svgz

    Goodmorning, I refer to the following issue: https://forums.adobe.com/message/9978412#9978412

    I am working daily on a professional basis with Adobe Illustrator. I find it very disturbing that this issue isn't solved yet. I hope you can fix it.

  11. New Artboard Automatically Generated - No Preview Available

    When a new artboard is generated, it is now automatically placed to the right of the active artboard. Previously, generating a new artboard would show a preview and allow me to place wherever I wanted.

    I work frequently with nested artboards, and when I want to create a new artboard within the active artboard, I am taken away from the area I am viewing, which is frustrating. I now have to zoom out, turn off 'move with artboard' so that no art is interrupted, move the new artboard to the area I originally wanted it to be in, zoom in…

  12. Link pictures from Variable Panel

    When setting variables into variable panel, we can't auto add links addresses to variable, and need to add them into external xml or csv files. If we will add "Links" into variable panel we can click on folder icon and auto load link address into variable panel.

  13. Width Tool Numeric Control

    When using the Width Tool to manipulate the width of a stroke, it would be helpful to have the option to alt+click and enter the desired width in a dialog box, in a similar fashion to the Rotate Tool.

  14. Transform Tool

    Hello illustrator. A couple versions back, the transform tool didn't lag after hitting tab when typing in a number in x. Now I have to wait five seconds before typing a number in y otherwise the element will not move to the desired position and I have to type the number again.

  15. Improved HiDPI Windows support just like Photoshop 19.1

    Essentially do with Illustrator what you've done with Photoshop (https://theblog.adobe.com/photoshop-releases-version-19-1-selections-improvements-advanced-support-windows-high-density-monitors/). That is "[offer] a full range of choices for UI scale factors from 100% through 400%, in 25% increments. [... A]utomatically adjust itself based on your Windows settings, making it simple to set up."

  16. Appending number after SVG export

    After exporting SVG files there is a version number added to the file name... can you make this optional... It adds a bunch of unnecessary steps to my work flow as I have to then navigate to the file and rename it every time I export...

  17. Why dont you make it so that when you send us a new update that it includes the addons? i get tired of having to fix the addons i have.

    Why is it so difficult for you not break my addons? I have an addon for cutstudio that is no longer available. I tried removing it and reinstalling it at least five times already since i last updated Illustrator and still not showing under window/extensions... As advance as this software is and how much i pay for it every month I shouldnt have to deal with it breaking.

  19. Expanding scatter brush without boxes

    When I create a scatter brush of random circles and then expand the appearance, it creates outlines of all the circles, but also adds in a box around each circle. When I 'Unite' the shapes the boxes are included and there are too many to have to go in and delete the boxes manually.
