During my work I need to have two different views of my artboard or canvas. Now the Navigator panel and General view showing me the same view.
Adding an option that will allow to have two separate view can enhance my workflow. That can be achieved if we will have an option to lock or unlock Navigator View from General View.1 vote
There is no need to use Navigator panel for this.
Just call Window > New Window, untab it (if you use tabs), resize and reposition it the way you like, and work within the main window — all the changes you make are going to be rendered in real time in the second one.
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.1 voteResolved (Comments Open) · AdminNeeraj Nandkeolyar (Sr. Product Manager, Adobe Illustrator) responded
Please leave a note, if you think the information Egor provided doesn’t resolve this request.
I would like to ask adobe for:
Some kind of hotkey which block/freeze "no selected objects" so when you are working you don't worry about select/move/delete other objects by mistake.
Also very helpful when you are selecting those tiny anchor points.
For 2017 christmas please ;-)

Object > Lock > Other Layers does that.
If it’s not what you meant — please comment back
Marquee across a portion of the artboard and then hit a hot key, which brings a pop up display of all of the swatches within the area you have marquee. From that pop up display you can select single or multiple colours. For instance if you have vectorised something and you find within the area you have marquee that there is multiple blues, you can select all of those blues in the pop up and then change them all to 1 colour from your swatches menu - a really quick way to reduce down the colours that you don't need1 vote
This is exactly what Recolor dialog offers, the extended one
I would like to pick a colour from the fill for the stroke.
So if I choose fill to be the main I would like to change it regardless if I am picking from the fill or the stroke.1 vote
You can do it by holding Shift while using the Eyedropper tool
I use the F-keys frequently for Actions. However, F1 is defaulted to launching Illustrator's help screen and I'm regularly hitting the key by mistake. Could we please have a different way to launch the help screen and free up the F1 key for other, customisable, uses?1 vote
Thank you Ryan for your help.
Here is the way to customise the keys – please thank Ryan if you found it useful.
“You can go to edit/keyboard shortcuts, then choose menu commands. Find help, and clear the F1 key from it or pick it as another one. Save it as your own custom keyboard preset and you’re good to go.”
We can do this to more control shadow to be like Photoshop
Thank you for reading.
I want your program to be better than any program (affinity designer)1 vote
Just click a circle marker next to Layer name in Layers panel to target the whole layer and apply your shadow (or other effects) — it would get applied to it.
I would love a documented user guide in a PDF printable format that offers step by step procedures on how to use Illustrator functions.
Can you please send me the link for a PDF Illustrator User Guide, (documented).
This would be greatly appreciated!
