  2. New Crop Tool: Crop Placed Image to Mask Shape

    Images (jpg, png or photoshop formats) placed in illustrator (with "link” box checked) and then masked to fit within the document or a special shape often have more image then is needed. This adds to the saved .ai file size. So users need to edit the original in photoshop and crop approx. to the size of the mask in illustrator to trim down the photo and its data size.

    The “Crop Image” function will allow users to trim the dimensions of the image, but requires embedding after cropping, which actually adds file size to .ai file.

    It would really help…

  3. Add a virtual laser pointer option in presentation view mode

    We are an academic science lab that uses Illustrator to make slides for our data presentations. With the COVID crisis, all of our meetings and conferences became virtual. In presentation mode, the cursor is an arrow pointer, but I think it will be incredibly useful to have the option to make cursor a laser pointer (like in Microsoft powerpoint). Going forward, I think more and more meetings will be held virtually, and having a virtual laser pointer will be very useful in illustrator.

  4. Hiperlinks

    Right now you must use Acrobat or Indesign to integrate hiperlinks in the file. You can do the 0% opacity trick (putting a hiperlink in 0% opacity on top of the text you want to link) but it's not usable or efficient.
    I have so many files that are 90% illustracions, so it's the best for me to use Illustrator, but I would love to include the links in the file, not having to edit it in other softwares afterwards...

  5. Split- screen on all on adobe software

    Can you please consider adding the split-screen view to your softwares, predominantly Ai, Ps & Id. It is pretty hard to follow up with online classes/tutorials from Udemy, YouTube, Domestika if I have to keep switching windows back and forth and it is really frustrating. Help us Designers tackle tasks easier and more effective during this pandemic and busy workload

  6. spark icons in illustrator

    With the icons in Adobe Spark being free to use, and especially now that we have the ability to save files from Spark as a PDF, I've found myself utilizing the iconset from Spark in Illustrator (across Adobe CC really) by creating a blank document, inserting icons, saving as PDF, opening in Illustrator.

    It would be awesome if this process could be streamlined with the icons from Spark possibly being added to Illustrator, Photoshop, etc. Possibly from an addon, or by adding a new live and constantly updated set of symbols similar to how Adobe Fonts has been incorporated into…

  8. invert blending mode

    You have Normal, Multiply and Screen but there is no simple invert blending
    transparency mode for layers or objects
    I've seen it in other vector based programs and would love to see it in AI (and PSD)

    eg
    When a black ring (set to INVERT) overlaped a solid black circle, the portion of the ring that overlaps would turn white.

    eg
    When a Blue Circle overlapped a Yellow Circle the boolean area would turn green.

    This was VERY popular years ago in design, both in the 1930s and again in the 1980s in early graphics software, but it seems to…

  9. distribute / align on edges of an artboard or a shape

    A request to add two buttons to the "Align" options :
    distributing shapes on an artboard in order to have equal spaces between those two shapes AND the edges of the artboard.
    This could work with more than two shapes, and artboard could also be replaced by another shape (like a background color...).

    This should be clearer with a picture...

  10. Some sort of screen mirroring (to tablet) function included with subscription

    I'm in an unlucky spot where I can afford my CC subscription but not much else. Picture how excited I was when Apple came out with Sidecar screen mirroring, only to find out both of my apple computers are like, 6 months too early to be compatible. And now they're too recent to support my old drawing tablet.

    The other solution I know of is Astropad, which you can either pay a crazy amount for per month (crazy if you're only an occasional user), or pay a one-off price for a more limited version.

    What would be ideal though, is…

  13. Shortcut keys

    Why not use the same shortcut key as AfterEffects for 'placing' images ie. Apple or CTRL 'i'. Using the 'Shift' CTRL P is awkward. Photoshop should also have the same shortcut key. Different shortcuts for different Adobe programs slow downs users.

  14. New font

    Typekit is missing a really basic, classic font:

    If you look at posters for movies like THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, you'll notice that the fonts often are 30-35% taller than any font that's available in typekit.

    So it would be super nice if Typekit could add something like that. It's really important if you're making movie posters...

  17. Idea

    Dear Adobe team, I just thought of a potentially awesome business idea, Adobe Instructor or Tutor program, where experts in various Adobe programs are hired to help users learn how to use Adobes programs of their choice! It can be a one-on-one experience that can benefit students or any other users wanting to improve their skills. What are your thoughts?
    Sincerely,

     An expectantly curious user

  18. Two desimal

    Can we please have option to use only two desimiles on units.
    We use millimetres and four desimile is waaaaaay too much. Two is just enought. Example what we have noiw 1200,0000 mm, 1200,00 is what we want.

  19. Ability to add effects in Illustrator actions

    It would greatly enhance the performance of Illustrator actions if it was possible to add features such as effects to an action. Keep all settings stored and without having to see the dialogue box for the captured effect when played back in the future.

    For example, including a 3D Rotate effect from Effects> 3D> Rotate... and capture all of the settings in that dialogue box within the action whilst recording.

    Thank you!

  20. Chart enhancement request

    Most of the time I work on creating charts, sometimes which will be recurring charts. So my request is if we can embed spreadsheet just like in Indesign for tables, it would save time and also if we have option to add values on top of column chart and at the same time controlling alignment would be much helpful.
