  1. workspace window

    The newest update does not fix the issue I am having with the workspace window falling off the page when I try to drag the bottom right corner to better fit my art/desktop as needed. Does not respond to the position of my mouse, I have to over exaggerate where I want it while I click and drag my mouse.

  3. The menus of texture and many others secondary menus have a tiny tiny font. impossible to read

    The main interface works properly but when you use secondary menu like texture or so, the font in this menu is so tiny that we can't work.

  4. Automatically move to input box when selecting a transform option

    This would improve workflow by allowing users to not have to click on the input box when transforming a layer. It actually used to be a feature but was removed for reasons I'm not aware of.

  5. 'units' dropdown on transform pallet

    Add 'units' dropdown to transform pallet so you don't have to go to preferences to change them. This also separates the input box from the dialogue so its easier to type and tab through modifying dimensions.

  9. Add menu highlighting the same as the new InDesign feature

    I find the new menu highlight option very useful in InDesign. It would be helpful in all Adobe products.

    Please add menu highlighting the same as the new InDesign feature.

    In the attached I have highlighted PDF and Print Presets.

  10. select ignores raster effects

    Select tool preferences are limited to only two basic options.

    Option 1: Select tool's default option selects object's shadows, text leading and transparent raster images instead of just the object shape. This is hugely aggravating when working on highly detailed illustrations utilising multiple overlapping objects and layers with shadows or raster items.

    Options 2: is to "select by path only". When working with highly complex and detailed illustrations, this is actually a far more fiddly and aggravating option. Especially. when trying to click on individual paths where there's many paths overlapping.

    It would make life so much easier if there…

  13. Tools panel always displays as 2 columns upon start

    After launching Illustrator the tools panel is always displayed as 2 columns (AIL1.png) although I saved my workspace with 1 column display (AIL2.png). Tried to resave my workspace or create a new one, but the issue remains. When I reset my workspace tools panels switches back to 1 column, but only until the next launch of Illustrator. It's not severe bug, but a bit annoying to reset the workspace on every launch of the program, because a workspace actually is dedicated to help avoid setting the workspace again and again, shouldnt' it?

  14. disable autocrop suggestions

    The aggressive new autocrop suggestions in Illustrator 23.0 are a huge hassle. Every new crop I make I have to move the suggested crop lines back on 2-3 of the sides of my cropping image, or risk losing as much as 70% of the original image. Very much a waste of my time and a headache.

  15. CTRL + Spacebar = Zoom in and Out like Photoshop

    Not sure why this isn't the same between Photoshop and Illustrator but currently when you press CTRL + Spacebar in Illustrator you get a marquee tool to zoom into a specific location. This should match the zoom in and out function in Photoshop. Or, allow the user to change preferences to an easy check box to enable users to zoom in and out using CTRL + Spacebar like in Photoshop.

  17. Application Frame & Tabs'bar

    Often when opening a file & launching the application the tabs' bar is inactive as you can see in the attachment.
    Disabling the äpplication frame" fixes it...but still. its irritating.

    p.s. Its a bug report.

  18. Units Menu added to the Artboard Menu

    Why can't the Units menu be added to the Artboard menu? This would be such a time saver not to have to go into 2 different menu's just to change a document's Artboard from points to inches! Can you add this to the next update please!?

  19. Workspaces

    I have students who do not have access to the Essentials Classic Workspace. If this was removed this is a BAD idea, particularly for education environments. Educators like myself spend a great deal of time producing project-specific videos using a particular interface configuration and if my students cannot access it the videos and my valuable time have been wasted.s

  20. It does not change even if you enter a value on the Transform panel

    After entering X position, move to Y position with tab key and enter and enter value and value will not change even if enter key or tab key is pressed.

    Sometimes, this bug appears in Y position or Height.

    macOS High Sierra, Illustrator CC 2017, 2018 and macOS Mojave, Illustrator CC 2018
