  1. Zoom shortcut instead of Preference Setting

    The Preferences option to set the behaviour of the Zoom tool was a good attempt to get back the traditional behaviour.
    Many users like both zoom to selection and the traditional zoom.
    Why not add a shortcut for that instead of having to go to Preferences to change the behaviour?
    Zoom Cmd (Ctrl) +
    Zoom to Selection Cmd (Ctrl) Alt +
    (and the - versions of those).

  4. Show Layer/Object name in Properties Panel

    Could the name of the currently selected object or layer be displayed (and even editable) in the Properties panel, at the very top where it tells you what is currently selected? That would save so much time.

    Other than that, really like the new Properties panel!

  6. Less Application Chrome

    Illustrator could have less application chrome.


    • Ability to remove scrollbars and status bar

    • Ability to disable "Application Bar" while "Application Frame" is selected (Controls take the place of the Application Bar)

    • Adjustable-height panels e.g., a Swatches panel that's sized according to the number of swatches, not some fixed height

    • Mac-native full-screen mode that hides the macOS menu bar (without having to toggle AI's view mode)

    etc etc etc etc

  7. Make Custom Views usable.

    Make it possible to "overwrite" an existing Custom View instead of having to delete it to update a View with the same name.

    Make it possible to rename more then one view at a time in the "Edit Views" dialog. Right multiple views can be deleted but only one view can be renamed because renaming only takes effect when "OK" button is pushed.

  8. Combine the swatches and gradients panel

    Combine the swatches and gradients panel so previous used swatches can be added. It would also simplify the UI

  9. Allow Save Options to be Skipped

    Personally, I'd like to skip the extra dialog after I name my file and click the Save button.

    If I actually want to alter any of the settings, I'd prefer to do it by actively clicking an [Format] Options button in the Save dialog (opening a new dialog) rather than after already naming the file and clicking the Save button.

    Sometimes performance is slow enough that it takes some time for the next dialog to even show, which breaks my workflow as I move on to other tasks in other apps, thinking my file is safely saved already (I did…

  10. Open dialogs on top of window in windowed mode

    When working with multiple displays, dialogs (like saving, etc.) open on the display with the dock.

    This does not work well in windowed mode when the window is on the other display. It is not always obvious whether the dialog actually opens because it is often hidden behind other things on the main display. Because you can't interact with the document until the dialog is dismissed, it can feel like Illustrator has frozen.

    Is there a way to open the dialogs on top of the active window instead? This would place them in context and they would not get lost.…

  12. A darker theme on windows

    The Mac version of Illustrator has a much darker theme, and switching to the Windows version was a bit jarring, but I prefer the darkness. Could you tweak the darkest theme on Windows to make it look more like the Mac one?

  13. Scale tool isn't working

    20 year user. Been patient through many updates always re-finding my way. This one really disrupted my everyday use. Sorry it's a swing and a miss.

  15. Make the menus equal

    InDesign and Illustrator menus are too different. It's hard to switch. Please make it equal. For example: Window menu: In Id it's grouped and in Ai not (better to find something!). See attached.

  16. SCREEN IS ALL BLACK ON OPENING EXISTING FILE

    Just updated to latest version of Illustrator this morning and when I open an existing file to work on it, the entire art board is BLACK. Only way to fix the problem is resize the Mac art board window. My whole team is experiencing this problem. PLEASE FIX ASAP.

    Also copy-and-paste from illustrator to indesign seems like it has been disabled as well. Come on, folks... this is not good.... Super unhappy.

    We have reverted back to the previous version in the meantime.

  18. 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"

  19. Make Note field in Attributes keep content after relinking image with a note

    I use Note field in Attributes palette to make notes about my objects.
    Especially, I use it to write down information about original sizes of my linked images. Unfortunately, when I relink my images, these notes got vanished.

    It was said to me that it is by design.
    Well, no.
    I change the link to the image, but not the object itself.
    Please make AI treat my data a bit better and don't delete my notes.

  20. I use a MacBook with Touch Bar it would be great if there was a way for the touch bar to mirror the top options menu. File, Edit, Object etc

    I use a MacBook with Touch Bar it would be great if there was a way for the touch bar to mirror the top options menu. File, Edit, Object etc. So if I click file all the file options open up then you can keep going into options. The current touch bar options leave a lot to be desired and I think this is a way to greatly improve the use.
