  1. Rotate multiple shapes one time but each ones around its anchor point

    Dear Adobe
    Can we please have the possibility to select many shapes and rotate them all one time but each one be rotated around its anchor point?
    I think it will help us to make great designs quickly.
    Thanks and I hope you take my proposal in consideration

    Hi Nacer,

    Does the menu item Object > Transform > Transform Each… not work for you? You can also choose the reference point on the 9-point reference widget in the dialog.

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

  2. stop Live corners assumptions

    When drawing with the curvature, I haven't tested with regular pen, if you draw a mix of corners and somewhat curved surfaces, then you go back to add some nice radiused corners, you will likely be annoyed by illustrator Thinking that you intended to draw a giant chamfer.

    No, I didn't draw a large chamfer. Do not assume I drew a large chamfer. Assuming a radius when illustrator sees a tangent arc connecting two lines is Great. But with chamfer there's nothing to be tangent to. So just because I drew two sharp corners in a row, before two curved…

    This should not be happening. Seems like a bug. The corner should not become a chamfer unless you do an Option-click on the live corner widget. Could you please share more details on when this happens?

    Thanks,

  3. Brushes: anomalous effects

    Illustrator 2018 22.0.1

    Steps taken: Applying a pattern brush to a stroke, and adding an extra stroke around that in the appearance panel.

    Expected result: The stroke should only apply to the visible outline of the brush (see image), and no weird visual anomalies.

    Actual result: The stroke applies to both the brush as expected, but also to the original path (which should be invisible). There are also some anomalous gaps between the component parts of the brush, which should not be there.

    Furthermore, if you expand the brush you get a group containing the brush sub-paths (totally fine), but…

  4. Automatic dimension/measuring tool please

    A tool to automatically dimension signs would be an advantage to those of us working in the sign industry who create visuals for clients. It would also assist in maintaining accuracy of the artwork created and automatic checking device. This with the removal of the artboard size limitation would create a full working drawing platform for the manufacture of large signs for the retail industry.

    A couple of questions on this:

    1. Would it be okay to have a separate spec creation service much like the upcoming Adobe XD service? On this service, anyone with a link, can select any objects, and view its dimensions (W/H), colors, fonts etc. Or should it be inside Illustrator.

    2. Are you only going to create horizontal, and vertical dimensions? Or would you also like to have angular dimensions as well?

    Please share more details about your workflow.

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

  5. Cursor change when hovering over the endpoint of a handle with the direct selection tool

    When I hover over an anchor point with the direct selection tool, the cursor gives a visual clue that I am actually over it. When I click on the end of handle (successfully) it does as well. But if I click and drag but miss the handle end (which does not get bigger when I zoom,) it goes into selection mode and the handle goes away. This is annoying. I would like the cursor to change before I click on the handle end (while hovering - like it does on an anchor.) That way, I can tell when I'm actually…

  6. Illustrator 88's pen tool worked better than this one

    Please, please... does anyone at Adobe actually draw with the current pen tool? This is the main tool in your toolbox and it hasn't had a good flow since Illustrator 10. You should be able to draw and use modifier keys to change to the +, - and ^ with ease. Instead, the cursor flashes and gives you one teensy moment when any of those are available resulting in additional points being placed when you might, for instance, be trying to remove a point. The direction handles get in the way of reaching points. Segments are selected too easily when…

    We would like to understand more about this request. Please me us know if you can talk to us on a call to demonstrate the issues in detail.

    Thanks,

  7. Improve Graph / Chart tool

    Current graph tool in Illustrator has many limitations that need fixing. Following are some of the problems in Graph tool:

    No value labels

    Data window that requires you to remove characters such as commas

    Resetting of chart upon making changes

    Resizing issues (e.g. with bounding box)

    Missing basic chart types like *****

    No support for templates

    Also the tool doesn't support making new chart types, such as attaching data to any attribute of the artwork.

    Please share your thoughts on the following:

    1. Would it make sense to have a separate desktop app, just to create charts, and bring them inside Illustrator or InDesign? It may not be on cloud.

    2. Or would you rather have us work on building it within Illustrator?

    Thanks
    Yogesh
