  2. New symbol info window should retain properties of previously created symbol

    When creating a new symbol, it should remember not only the export type, but the symbol type and registration as well, instead of having it default to dynamic-center every time. Usually when creating symbols, they are of the same type as the last. This is how Flash handled symbols way back in the day and it was an invaluable time saver for projects containing dozens of clips (such as site plan artwork).

  3. Combine Illustrator and InDesign into a one stop tool.

    Would it be that much of a stretch? I'm, seriously, curious.

  5. crop borders

    Whenever I crop an image, a thing, light-colored border automatically appears around the newly cropped image, making merging two adjacent images by hand annoying. Removing this automatic border would be very helpful.

  6. Modify the open dialog (icons views)

    Modify the file open dialog when the view is one of the icons views so that it displays a thumbnail of the file itself rather than the generic AI icon. I frequently want to open an Illustrator file in a folder that contains LOTS of illustrator files ("Owl 15, Owl 16, etc). At that point I have to stop and bring up Bridge so I can see that the owl with the glasses is number 23. I'd open it with Bridge, but that doesn't work when Illustrator is already open. Maybe fix THAT bug while you're at it ;-)

  7. Edit Character properties in a mixed selection

    When having a complex set of objects selected, including one ore more Text Objects, it would be nice to have access to the Character/Paragraph properties.

    Current version simply ignores any changes when something else is selected besides a Text Object.

  8. keyboard unable to type words when running

    Once I run the Illustator, my keyboard unable to type words, and the mouse arrow keeps running the loading icon. I uninstall the version of 23.0.6 and installed 23.0.5, now it looks fine.

  9. Ability to link SVG for datasets

    When using variables in Illustrator, you're able to set an image as a dynamic object, so long as it's linked (File > Place, then check Link), as opposed to embedded. This means that I can't set SVGs as variables, since they can't be linked, and have to convert them into images in order to do so.

  10. Student Subscription for Individual Apps

    There should be a student subscription for individual apps.

    I only need illustrator, but $20 a month for one app is still overwhelming for a student, especially since I don’t get paid for the work I do on the app. It wouldn’t make sense to spend so much on the Creative Cloud just to use one app. 60% off, like Creative Cloud, would be much appreciated, but even 40-50% would do.

  11. Allow auto update scheduling

    The auto update feature is nice, but it might become a bit of a hassle as you need to close the apps to update.

    I would propose to have a drop down option to allow the Adobe CC suite to

    • Download the updates on the background and then ask when to install, thus not getting in the way of on going work

    • More importantly, allow an scheduling of said background download, so it can be downloaded during the least network stressed time of the day.

  16. Rotate tool reference guide center not being fixed

    When i try to fix the guide/center after selecting the rotate tool and then double clicking the rotate button to get the options like angle settings, the reference guide resets to previous positions, which means that i don't get the option to rotate an object according to a specific angle that i want while keeping the reference guide/center where i want it to be. The guide resets everytime i double click on the rotate tool

  18. Locking and unlocking objects artboard only

    Discussed in our team is the annoying way Illustrator unlocks EVERYTHING on the pasteboard - why can unlocking be isolated to the artboard you are working on? Like indesign. I use locked objects a lot when I am creating concepts and use layers when creating final artwork. Using layers slows down the way you work.

  20. cup die line template maker tool

    . I needed to create a sticker or litho wrap around a bucket and a cup. I needed a tool that allows me to put in the circumference of a top circle and a bottom of the circle and the size of the side between the top and bottom.
    I need to create a template that i can use for a bucket and or cup without going into geometry. I am an Graphic Designer working for a Coffee company. I really can use this for all sorts of item at work. Please in the future. add flexibility to a round…
