  1. Blend Tool Default Settings

    I use the blend tool primarily to create specified steps between objects. The tool always defaults to smooth color spacing. It would be great to be able to set a default spacing mode. In fact, it would be even better if the properties panel showed blend tool options.

  2. Different Stroke Caps for open paths

    For illustration / icons it would be handy to have a round cap on only one site of a Stroked Path, and a Butt Cap or Projecting Cap on the other end.

  3. Align to object on ANOTHER artboard! yeah yeah!

    Aligning to an object on another arboard would be really great + needed, for AI users.

    In addition to functions like, align to key object and select/edit similar shapes,
    It would be so so great to be abled to align an object, to another object, on another artboard!

    In short:
    Aligning objects to the position of other objects on other artboards.
    Without having to move objects to the same artboard 1st, or copy their x/y values, just for alignment.

    Some thoughts/notes:

    Implementation,
    With artboard rules activated, of course. This seems to be a similar function to the ones that exist:…

  4. Divide Paths into equal parts

    It would be useful being able to split a path into a specific amount of equal parts. Tools like including the possibility to include a gutter like the tools we find in the "Split into Grid" option would be superb too.

    There are ways around to get it. but in makes the whole process tedious and not what someone would expect from software like Adobe Illustrator in 2020.

    PS: It also doesn't make sense that we can not sing in with our Adobe Account into this specific UserVoice forum. But I guess that paying our membership doesn't makes our opinion…

  6. Intuitive drawing: "Pencil tool" in mode adding "Blob brush tool"

    Hi,
    I would like to be able to draw, draw and model using the Pencil Tool in edit mode like the "Blob brush tool".
    Eg.
    1 • Pencil Tool. I draw any shape.
    2 • I mark this shape and draw another one
    3 • The effect is the automatic joining of these shapes into one summary.

    Such a simple, fast and intuitive way to draw ketor shapes for the cartoonist.

    Attention.
    • Drawing with the "Blob brush tool" is a different shape effect without sharp lines. Eg saw. E.g. lasts or coat or hair cartoons.
    • drawing many objects…

  7. Option for drag select to ignore text paths

    Whenever I am working on an artboard for brand identity, I have a lot of text paths on objects. Whenever I try to click and drag over an element, it ALSO grabs the path of the text, which I do not want. Is there a way to only click and drag over the elements you want to touch without having to lock the text paths?

  8. Make Direct Selection's "subtools" shortcuttable

    It would be great if Direct Selection's "Convert/Remove/Connect and Cut Anchor points" functions could be assigned a shortcut, since with tools dedicated for exactly that ("Convert Anchor Point" or "Remove Anchor Point") you can't affect multiple selected anchor points AT ONCE as you can with those in the Direct Selection Tool.
    I think it would streamline the drawing workflow quite a bit.

  9. Align to Artboard is set as default

    Align to Artboard is automatically set to default, even after changing the toggle to Align to Selection.

    It used to work that whichever you selected, that selection would remain. But now, it always switches back to Align to Artboard. Very frustrating.

  10. Split blends

    It would be nice if Ai could allow to split a blend in a step defined, effectively creating two merged blends — something that CorelDraw was able to do for years.

  12. paste into selected object.

    Very easy to paste easily from the clipboard to the selected object.
    ⌘ + alt + shift = paste into selected object.

    Currently, the option is complicated and not intuitive. A lot of time.
    Best Regards

  13. Object > Blend should include Blend Options, Preview, and Make all in one dialog box.

    Previews exist for much more complex operations (like 3D renders, beveling, extruding, etc). Previewing and making blends directly from the blend options box is long overdue.

  14. リフレクトツール使用時のダイアログで「リフレクトの軸」の設定が前回と同じにならず、毎回変わってしまう

    今までのリフレクトツールは前回使用した「リフレクトの軸」が記憶されており、使うたびに決めなおす必要がありませんでした。しかし、アップデート後に使おうとすると、使用時のダイアログで設定が一定ではなく、毎回変わってしまい困っています。水平・垂直が変わるだけでなく、角度の任意の数値まで毎回異なる状態です。リフレクト軸を前回と同じ設定で使うなら、ダイアログが出てもいちいち確認せずreturnキーを押すだけで素早く反転できていたので、ちゃんと前の設定のまま使える様に戻してもらいたいです。

  15. Select All Objects beneath a Target Object.

    In the attached image, I wanted to select and delete all of the boxes that sat beneath the red stroke. In order to do it, I had to duplicate the red stroke, convert it to an outline, select all of the boxes, Unite them with the outlined red stroke and then delete the boxes that were fused with the stroke. Doing this results in the other boxes losing their original color.

    Could there be a variation on the selection tool that detects all of the objects that are underneath a target object (in this case the red stroke)?

  16. Perspective Tool and Strokes.

    I've recently gotten into the Perspective Tool in a big way. My only problem is that STROKES' don't conform to Perspective. I've worked around this by converting the stroke into a fill using OBJECT > PATH > OUTLINE STROKE. It gets the job done, but I lose all that "strokey" goodness. Can a button be added somewhere to "Allow Strokes To Be Effected By Perspective?"

  18. Precise pickup with selection tool

    For years the selection tool has been the most frustrating tool to use in illustrator. The amount of time wasted having to zoom in to make a selection. No matter what setting is in preferences for selection it still isn't precise enough. It's great if you want to pickup points or set a pickup auto distance etc. But the sheer lack of accuracy of the pointer/object relationship is awful. When 2 small objects are next to each other and you make a selection, when the very end of the pointer is over the object you want and it goes and…

  19. correct measurements

    In the attached screen shot you can see that the height of each of these objects, when looking at the blue illustrator guidelines, is measured the same but in reality, as is clearly obvious from the stroke attached to one of them, they are not the same size. One of them is clearly bigger in size due to the stroke. This discrepancy is very and constantly confusing when trying to work in precision measurements. Please could you fix so the stoked object calculates the stroke outer edge as additional width, as that is what it is. Thanks James
