  1. Select above current layer

    Under the select menu I would like to see added an option to select all layers that are above/below the current layer. In my use case this would be best in the context of the current artboard.

    For example, this could be used to select everything about a semitransparent overlay layer in web visuals showing a popup element.

  3. Image Trace - Inverted Colors

    I would like the feature to trace a png image with white body and alpha channel active.

    Sometimes my clients send me a PNG with transparency to work with, like a logo or graphic of their own. To speed up the process I tend to vectorize with Image Trace because I need it in vectors, but it's impossible if the image is with white body and transparency because I end up with a solid white rectangle.

    In this cases, I need to open Photoshop, add my png, create a clipping mask, paint with the brush using any color except white,…

  4. Corel, passed the illustrator

    You are not developing Illustrator. You are updating, there are many unnecessary features. Corel made many innovations.

    And more stable.
    I am very sad.

  5. CINEWARE AS A NATIVE TOOL

    You should add the Cineware plug-in into Illustrator's architecture as a native tool, such as After Effects and its Cineware.

  6. crop

    First, I would like to ask, why Photoshop doesn't have also a site for request features.

    Photoshop Crop tool:
    When using the crop tool, after rotate the picture, the corners touch the boundaries of the picture and that's ok. but if we release the mouse button, and rotate again, the corners doesn't touch anymore the boundaries.
    Please create an option for this to happen

  8. Shaping (intersection and trimming) to work normally

    It would be very nice to have shaping tools (intersection and trimming) to work as expected.

    For this:
    • When intersecting, leave both input objects (do not remove) and inherit the properties of the last selected object

    • When trimming (cutting objects) cut the last selected object with the first selected. Leave both objects. Maintain the properties of the last selected object.

    Very simple - the 'front-minus-back', 'expand appearance' and 'alt-clicking' tricks are confusing annoying and over-complicated.

  9. Kaleidoscope Pattern making

    Adobe Capture already has this option. I wish you could implement this into the pattern making options. I believe there are even more ways to create patterns, it would be nice to have those options.

  10. Copy paste sublayers

    For projects you use in Adobe Character Animator. Make it possible to copy the whole mouth group (with sublayers smile, neutral, ...).

  11. zoom one handed with Magic Mouse

    I would like to be able to zoom in and out one handed using a Magic Mouse. I think this could work by using two finger gesture up or down to zoom respectively.

  13. Support for Microsoft SCUP

    We have invested very large in SCCM infrastructure to support Global distribution of client applications. To speed up distribution of Adobe product versions we have analyzed Adobe Update Server solution.
    Based on our global environment that would require an enormous investment create a Adobe Update Server at every site location.

    We would like Adobe to add support for Microsoft SCUM, that would speed up product distribution without very large investment.

  14. Adding Background Color to Pattern Options

    When creating seamless pattern it would be very helpful to have the ability to select a background color in the Pattern Options palette. Especially for hex shape, if I create a separate background shape the overlapping doesn't always work especially for Hex. I use the Appearance palette as a workaround or manually add a background color/shape. Please see screenshot for reference. Thank you!

  15. Lock or unlock Navigator View from General View. Two Separate Views

    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.

  17. Improve your UX/program behaviour for god's sake

    Illustrator is the worst program I have ever work with, an that's an opinion I share with a lot of designers. Nothing is logic, everything is a nonsense and I lost A LOT of time trying to make so simple things. Photoshop is awesome, after effects is awesome, don't know what happen to you with Illustrator, but please make a review of how it works and fix it

  18. Create option to change order & position in which layers are duplicated or copy/pasted in the layers panel

    Layer organization is extremely important to my work. I'm constantly duplicating layers using the select + alt feature, and constantly having to re-order layers because they automatically get placed above the layer I'm working on. I would like the option to make my duplicated layers go immediately below the layer I'm working on.

    I would also like the option for copy/pasted layers to go immediately above/below the original layer, or all the way at the bottom.

    I spoke to an Adobe rep on chat and they said this isn't currently possible.

  19. 9-point magnetic object-to-grid (or-grid to-object) without smart guides

    Could you consider a feature used in Esko Graphics (Artpro) for the placement of objects (9-point grid) to a crosshair or placing a crosshair to an object. This would expand current align and artboard functions into one clean and user friendly feature. Would also improve functions such as Mirror, Scale, Paste in place, copying to correct location across various files even if rulers are not set the same. For more details see: http://docs.esko.com/docs/en-us/artpro
    I can expand on this for you on request. Might answer a lot of similar requests into one new feature!
