  1. Problem with Adobe Illustrator pressure on a Surface pro 7

    I recently purchased a Surface Pro 7. I am a graphic designer and an artist and I've always worked on Illustrator but after installing it to my Surface Pro the experience is ruined for me.

    I cannot get a sharp line even if my life depended on it.

    Basically the lines inside the box are the lines I'm getting, the single line outside of the box is what I should be getting but I'm not. It's like the pressure works but not on the low end as I can't make a line sharp, it always ends up like this.

  2. Cluster nudges as one "move" for undoing

    In Photoshop, when a user nudges an object by holding down an arrow key for an interval of time, PS clusters that series of nudges as one "move". Then the user can undo all of the nudges at once with one "Undo move" command in the History panel. Since Illy doesn't have a History panel (and why is there no History panel? Don't like it, don't use it.), it's impossible to undo all of the nudges with one "Undo". Please make Illy treat nudges like PS does.

  5. Criar um histórico de ações, igual ao photoshop.

    Poderíamos ter um histórico de ações igual ao Photoshop. Desta forma conseguiríamos selecionar ações específicas para voltar, ao invés de ficarmos dependentes do "Ctrl + Z'.

  7. “Open with...” possibility

    Hi! First of all its great to be part of this finally.

    But now the important. It would be very nice if we could open .ai files directly from Dropbox etc. without having to saving it to Files etc. As you can see there is no option to open directly in Ilustrator even tho its .ai file.
    And no way to allow it in settings as far as i know, so i reckon its matter of the app rather than the OS.

    Thanks!

  9. Linking dxf/dwg

    This might be very wishfull thinking...

    I am an architect, and use CAD to make plan drawings, and illustrator to make them look good (adjusting lineweight, stroke, color and so on). But if i make an updated drawing in CAD, i have to do everything all over again in Illustrator. It would be awsome if illustrator was able to give a specific layer a specific lineweight/stroke/color etc... and was able to update this on its own!

  10. Grab symbols by bounding box points

    When the Preference 'Object Selection By Path Only' is active, symbols can't be grabbed at the control points of the symbol's bounding box.
    We can not move a Symbol by dragging a corner point.

    Please repair.

  11. PLEASE bring back the 'apply to all' check box when re-linking files

    Please bring back this feature!! Or i'll have to down grade Ai again. Its a nightmare to have to re-link images individually and although I've been told you can select all and replace in order, this is a real pain too.

  12. illustrator bug erasing files

    I save all files locally. Yesterday i made a 'v2' of a project, saved in the same location as the 'v1', had both opened and worked on the v2, and exported PNGs from it to use in another app (saved frequently between edits). Today I discovered the PNGs and v1 are still in the folder, but not the v2.

    It is not listed in my Mac's 'recent files', it doens not turn up in search, it is not in the cloud storage, i did not use an external, and I also did not accidentally erase the file-go into the trash-…

  13. Path-to-path snapping

    It would be incredibly useful to have, for example, two circles snap to each other not only at the anchor points but also at any point along the paths. This would help a lot when using Shape Builder tool, because at the moment most of the time you either get a tiny gap between the shapes (then the Shape Builder tool doesn't work), or the shapes overlap (then the Shape Builder tool leaves unnecessary anchor points which you have to meticulously fix).

  14. 2d to 3d Packaging render option

    It would be really useful for the packaging industry if our 2D packaging artwork can be visualized as a 3D render without having to use a third party software very much like ESKO's Studio (https://www.esko.com/en/products/studio), please?

  15. Escape key should deselect any selected object

    This would be extremely useful when you are zoomed in and a lot of objects are filled in your screen and there's no empty space around to click if you ever wanna deselect an object. Please map the escape key so that it deselects any selected object.

  16. How much the arrow keys move a selected object around in any direction **w.r.t. the zoom level**

    I think the primary goal of letting us control the object with the arrow keys is so we can be accurate with its placement on the artboard. But this becomes completely useless if the zoom level is very high, in which the arrow keys move the object a big distance. This forces us to use the mouse to get an accurate position for the object.

    What I really need: If we've zoomed in on an artboard, then let the arrow keys move the object a smaller distance than usual so that we can be more accurate with an object's placement…

  19. All adobe packages should keep automatic timetracking per new file

    Every designer or design company needs to keep his timetracking in order. Instead of second guessing or manually entering timetracking data in an external file all adobe products should keep active time per file/document.

    Active time meaning the file is open and you are working inside it and not just counting standby time as well. Because with each change you keep a history, you could watch the history, if the history is changing adobe updates the timetracking for that file. You measure the time between two active periods. If the history is not changing during the last 10 minutes or…

  20. Few Additional Features

    Fill & Stroke Color Picker Dialogue with Single Click.
    Fill and Stroke should bring its Color Picker Dialogue with a Single Click on it, which one is active we would just click and bring its Dialogue.
    Layers Panel:
    Holding or pressing the Control key and clicking on a new layer icon in Photoshop to creates a new layer below all the layers if no layer is selected, if a layer is selected then you do the same action will create a new layer below the selected layer which really makes sense.
    The same thing would be very comfortable in Illustrator…
