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.1 vote
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.

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
Like old Macromedia Freehand, It has a mouse drag and hot key to increase the space characters1 vote
You can adjust spacing between a selection of characters with a hotkey Cmd/Ctrl + Opt/Alt + K (which focuses the input) and then Arrow keys.
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.
Include an option in the New File dialogue box to open a file with only black and white color swatches. Currently, new files open with a large palette of useless color swatches, and it's a time waster to have to delete all those colors each time to have a clean and functional palette.0 votes
You can set your own document profiles that have only what you need.
Trash all swatches, styles, brushes and resave this new document as a default profile (in a separate folder first), add your own, and then copy the file over existing one (or add a new). Access the folder by clicking Browse option in Profile dropdown in the extended New Document dialog window.
Just remember to backup these files, because Ai overwrites defaults each update!
