  2. Apply any Cap Style to a Stroke End Point

    Allow user to be able to select an end anchor point on a stroke and apply any cap they choose. So one path could have a butt cap on one end and round cap on the other end. This would make building certain styles with strokes far easier and avoid problems that the current workflow creates when expanded at times.

  3. Don't display clipped outside paths in Outline View option

    Sometimes we have a large pieces of artwork clipped.
    Sometimes we don’t care what’s inside until we isolate these to edit the clipped art directly.
    Still, when we switch to Outline View, we see all the art that is clipped, clumped, overlapping, messy.
    For these cases it would be nice to have an option to not draw parts that are outside and beyond of clipping paths.
    Corel’s products does it a bit wrong — they don’t draw clipped parts in Outline at all, including parts that are inside. Ai should do it better.

  4. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. All Adobe software should change the zoom and panning tools to work like in Photoshop.

    Hi, I want to control the zoom in Illustrator and in InDesign with the mouse in the same way I can do it in Photoshop. Zoom in and out with the mouse wheel and panning by pressing the mouse wheel.

    In Photoshop I just need one hand to use zoom and pan, which is the best alternative. All Adobe software should change the zoom and panning tools to work like in Photoshop. Why force us to use both hands to zoom and pan when it can be done with just one hand like in Photoshop? I is easier, more user…

  9. 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).

  10. Image Trace results have deteriorated over the years, detail is lost and line work looks terrible!

    I’m a full time illustrator and have been using Adobe Illustrator since the launch of CS - so it’s been years :) I LOVE the app, in fact it’s how I make my living as an illustrator and the app features have contributed to my style development and workflow.

    Which brings me to the feedback I’d like to give regarding the Image Trace tool. My illustration style is a mixture of hand crafted, grungy texture and flat colour. I achieve this by creating pencil on paper line work, scanning then I image trace in Adobe Illustrator to vectorise. BUT, I…

  11. サブレイヤー

    お世話になります。
    いつも仕事で使わせていただいております。

    先日、複雑なデータをグループ化した際、あったものが消えてなくなるという不具合が発生し、危うくミスになるところでした。
    調べたところ、サブレイヤーが使われており、グループ化することによりオブジェクトが最背面へ移動し、なくなってしまったということが分かりました。現在は、どうしてもグループ化しなくてはならないときは「レイヤーを統合」してグループ化するなどして対策していますが、ネット上でも不具合として話題になっているようなので、グループ化する、マスクをかける、などによりあったものがなくなってしまうようなとき(重なり順が変わる時)にはアラートでお知らせいただければこのような事故が減るしありがたいな、と思いました。
    どうぞよろしくお願いします。

  13. Switching tabs doesn’t show the correct image in High Sierra

    It’is absolutely impossible to work on Illustrator 2020. I have version 24.2, and there constantly switching tabs doesn’t work correctly. No matter what tab I've selected, I can only see 1 file. This happens randomly, and I have to restart the program to get the tabs to work properly again.

    By the way, this is also observed in Photoshop 2020.

    This bug is at least one year old. I don’t know how to fix it.

    P.S. These screenshots are not mine (I don’t know how to cause this bug). But I have exactly the same situation

  14. The ability to create guidelines exactly as you can on

    The ability to create guidelines exactly as you can do on Photoshop.

    I want to be able to split my artboard into sections columns/rows of equal measurements as I can do when designing on photoshop.

    It's so limiting to only be able to choose guidelines by a specific measurement width apart.

    I design files for print such as A3 - 420mm x 297mm

    If I want to split that into 4 columns of equal distance - t's just a massive headache figuring it out, so I don't bother and do it by eye! Would much rather have an easy way…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Add 'relink all instances' option checkbox in relink file dialog box

    Add a 'relink all instances' option/checkbox in relink file dialog box.

    There should be a checkbox to relink ALL INSTANCES of a specific link with a new image in one go.

  18. 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-…

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
