  1. Allow adding Patterns and Gradient swatches to Color Groups

    Expanding on the existing request for gradient swatch support in color groups... We need groups that support all swatch types. I understand the purpose of Color Groups but the intuitive way to use these folders is as a generic "Swatch Group", without limitation to swatch type in order that we can organize assets appropriately within a project.

    My suggestion is either to allow gradient and pattern swatches to be added to a Color Groups or add a new super group type that can contain any swatch type and color groups as well.

    Groups would be organized in rows: color, gradients,…

  2. Illustrator forgets which color mode is set in the Color palette (and Gradient)

    Color panel always starts with RGB values. That's useless or very hard to use 99% of the time. So first thing for me is to set my Color panel to HSB and it stays like that for that session, but after a restart it's RGB again. Always!
    Gradient panel is even worse because it forgets instantly.
    Standard gradient's pop up color select is a Grayscale slider. I've never in my life needed that - not to mention HSB has the same with the value slider. But this bothers me less than what follows:
    If I change Grayscale to HSB and…

  3. Simulate Artboard color individually

    Color an artboard without needing to simulate colors in the document setup and toggling the "Show transparency grid".
    It would be cool to for example have a white version of a logo for example without having to put something behind to create contrast and maybe going farther down the road setting the preview to display the background.

  4. Save Illustrator pattern swatches to palettes in Creative Cloud libraries

    It would be great to be able to save pattern fill swatches and pattern brushes, as patterns and brushes. Currently it works fine if you save a graphic that uses pattern fills and brushes. But for me it would be useful to save and organize them in their native Illustrator format.

    Thanks!

  5. Make Toggle Between Color Picker/Swatches Universal As In Gradient Color Tabs

    I would also like there to be a way to make color model selection more universal - such as mentioned, if you have chosen HSB in the color picker that then becomes the default for new colors and color menus that appear. Also would love to see the ability to toggle between color picker and color swatches everywhere - the only place I believe it currently is found implemented that way is in the gradient color stops. Most of the time I'll work with HSB, and would love it not to have to select HSB each time or place the…

  6. Lithological Swatches

    When I want to use the USGS lithological swatches, I usually have difficulty finding them. Could all these be placed in a top level menu?

  7. Allow gradient swatches to be added to CC library

    It's great to have colors in the cc library but why can't those colors be gradients too? Please allow us to add gradient swatches to the cc library. Thanks

  8. A sane way to assign a stroke to have a color not in the default palette

    If I want to assign a color from a Library to a Stroke, my only option is to make the object's background color the Library color, and then use the Swap Fill and Stroke button.

    The Stroke color menu has lots of weird buttons to import colors that I don't care about. Why not replace those buttons with like a Library Colors button, or a Recent Colors button, or heaven forbid a color dropper?

    My first impression of Illustrator was that assigning colors to things is harder than in any other program I have used in my entire life. This…

  9. Color picker

    Can you make the color picker have an eyedrop tool that can select any color on the screen when you double click the swatch. Similar to Photoshop. Also have the default in any way you reach a color picker be hexidecimal so it is easier to copy and paste the color to other programs, etc. It defaults in this section, but I cannot select any color on the board while this is open.

  10. Swatches retain values when changing document color mode

    What's the point in having swatches if their values are automatically changed when the document's color mode is changed? For example, if you have a yellow built out as 0/12/100/0 as a global CMYK swatch, then you change your document to RGB, then back to CMYK, the color values within the swatch change to 1.62/11.07/100. The same thing happens when I have a RGB swatch in an RGB file, convert to CMYK, then convert back.

    And to make matters worse, If you have an .ase palette open and you try to fix the object's color, it will give you a…

  11. Hex shortcode support

    Typing in #333 should auto-complete to #333333, not #000333. Makes UI design frustrating for those with a dev background.

  13. Please bring back the slider for the gradient angle adjustment!!!

    There used to be a slider for the angle adjustment of gradients. It was great because I didn't have to know the angle or the direction in numbers, (which designers are notoriously bad at, by the way) I could freely adjust the angle based on how it looked. The way it is now, with a textbook and a dropdown menu, is so much more work and SO FRUSTRATING. I don't want to have to type in increments and figure out if I need to make it a negative angle.
    PLEASE GIVE ME THE SLIDER BACK!!!!!!!!!
    Thank you!
