  1. Easy portability of customization

    I really want easier customization portability in AI.
    Workspaces and Keyboard Shorts specifically.
    I'd love to be able to use any computer and just by signing into CC have these come along.
    And if not that at least a far more straight forward/intuitive method of moving them from one computer to another and from one version to the next.
    It literally takes me a half hour to set things up as I like if I have to do it from first principles (and longer for keyboard shortcuts — I usually don't even know what I have until I try and…

  3. 【要望】境界にジャギが発生するのを改善して欲しい

    CC2015から2017にアップデートしてから、
    Aiで作成したデータにpsdファイルをリンクしてサイズを縮小すると、
    pdf保存をした際やaiファイルをPsから直接開いた際、
    透明の境界にジャギが発生するようになりました。

    Aiでの作業中は特に境界が見えることはなく、あくまでそのファイルを
    pdf保存またはPsから直接開いた場合のみに限ってのことです。

    ※「書き出し」からpsd形式にした場合はジャギが発生しませんが、
     アンチエイリアスのかかり方が気に入らないためできればAiで
     完成させたデータをそのままPsで開きたいです。
    ※以前のバージョンでも縮小したリンクファイルのあるAiデータを
     pdf化するとファイルの境界にジャギが発生していましたが、
     pdfだけだったため作業に支障はありませんでした。

    psdファイルを原寸で作成して原寸でリンクすれば良いのですが、
    レイアウト段階では大きいサイズでリンクして最終的に使用するサイズに
    縮小することが多いので可能であれば以前のバージョンのように
    直接Psから開いてもジャギが発生しないプログラムにできないでしょうか。
    文章での説明だとわかりにくいため、サンプルを作成して添付しました。

    古いバージョンのようにpsdファイルにパスを作って透明部分をカットし、
    epsファイルに変換してリンクすればジャギは発生しませんでしたが、
    それだと操作性・効率が悪く非常に作業がしにくいです。

    今のところリンクファイルにPs側で少し光彩をかけて境界をぼかすと
    ジャギが発生しないことがわかったためそれで対応していますが、
    光彩をかけられないデザインの場合もあるため対処に困っています。

    自分で解決策が見つけられればと思い色々と検証してみましたが、
    効果的な方法を見つけることが出来なかったので、
    次回以降のアップデートで改善して頂けると大変ありがたいです。
    もしOS側の問題(Wondows8や10なら発生しない)のようでしたら
    その旨をアップデートの際ユーザーに送られるメールなどに
    記載して頂けると助かります。

    Ps:Photoshop CC 2017

  4. New crop feature

    Would much prefer this feature to be similar to InDesign. Don't see me likely to use as is since it throws away unused data and embeds. Ability to NOT crop like that is one of the most useful features in InDesign. Masking although clumsy as a crop tool seems it will remain more flexible and useful.

  5. Efect menu

    I would like to provide a suggestion, to the "Effect" menu of Illustrator, they will take the same aesthetics from the rest of the menus. "Effect" looks very Windows 95.

  6. More advanced 'Add Anchor Points' function

    'Add Anchor Points' is quite archaic at the moment. My requests:
    1 Apply it to selected parts of paths, in stead of the complete path.
    2 Add a dialog to set the number of subdivisions
    3 Add a keyboard shortcut

  7. Select same fill colour selects text with same fill colour too. Tricky I know

    When I hit select same colour and there is any live text box with multiple colours in it it does not select the text. Would be really handy if it did.

  8. Perspective anchored objects - Advanced perspective manipulation

    I've been wanting something to solve the following use-case for a while:

    When adjusting a 2D illustration drawn in perspective, to a new position within that perspective (think cereal box rotating on a surface), I find myself spending a lot of time adjusting anchors and curves. The new shape tools have been a huge help, but they can go further!

    It would be AMAZING to anchor 2D drawings to a perspective plane and update them with a simple rotation within that plane (like you would in 3D)

    How would this work? Illustrator would assume outer lines would move more slowly…

  11. Variable Concept and Legacy Typefaces

    The new version of Minion and Myriad are EXCELLENT, and I am very excited by the possibilities that this opens up. But I work in Art production, and for consistency, I need access to the legacy version of these typefaces. May we have access to both?

  12. Pressure Sensitivity added to Pencil Tool

    Variable width strokes are great! What would be even better would be to have variable strokes simply by drawing them in with a pressure sensitive device.

  13. Remove units from input boxes

    When editing a value in an input box, e.g. the width of an artboard, the unit (px) is still included in the box. This makes it harder to hit the right spot in the text with your mouse, and makes it more prone to error. It's especially annoying when performing arithmetic!

    Trying to avoid this situation: "306 p+34x"

  14. Selection tool Problem when trying to click and move something.

    Cannot drag or move the shapes and lines that i have been drawn when using the selection too and giving an irritating sound.

  15. A back button on the Save & Export windows

    Often when saving/exporting a file from illustrator i'll move through the various steps; naming the file, choosing a location, adjusting the settings etc, then just as i go to hit 'ok' on the final window i'll realise i forgot to adjust a setting in an earlier window and so am forced to hit the cancel button and start the saving process again.
    Obviously its not a huge issue but it would save a little time and frustration if you could just click a back button rather than having to start over.

  16. Help tool used to have a tool search bar

    At my school we have an older version of Adobe softwares ( CS5 I believe) and there is a search bar when you click on the Help button at the top of the window where you could search for a specific tool. It would be great to re add this feature for times when I or any other users forget where a certain tool is located but remember the name of the tool.

  17. Contextual menu Strip Module

    creating a contextual "shortcut" menu overlapping layer to access quickly Tools. This is a kind of Radiant Menu developed by Wacom on their tablet for example or Alias marking menu. This should really improve workflow ergonomics.

  18. New version change over

    New versions, NOT new name. Drop the year add-on. Just ask to overwrite existing app version. I use overflow to start up my apps, not the Adobe menu. By adding a new app name AND deleting the old one you BREAK ALL my links to ***** up my workflow.

    Also, import to the new version ALL MY TEMPLATES. You created significant work for me to go an find the old templates and then get them into 2018

    Most importantly: Send some of your engineers out to see people use your products in the real world that is NOT web design…

  19. Simulate Artboard color individually

    Color an artboard without needing to simulate colors in the document setup and toggling the "Show transparency grid".
    It would be cool to for example have a white version of a logo for example without having to put something behind to create contrast and maybe going farther down the road setting the preview to display the background.

  20. Search window in all Adobe programs

    Add a window where I can search a feature, window, or command that exists in the program.
    It's hard to remember where everything is located.
