  1. Why doesn't Redo command work on transform operations?

    I did a shear operation on an object and wanted to repeat it on another. Redo doesn't work on this type of operation. It took me some searching to find out that Transform operations had their special Redo, called Repeat transform. Why can't it use Redo like any other command on any other software? You can maintain the Repeat transform command for people who are accustomed to it, but why impose special redo's for each different command?

  2. Reflect in Transform window

    In the Transform window (Window > Transform), you can resize, rotate, move, shear, but not reflect. How come ? Why not systematically give the user the choice between window commands and menu commands? After all these years?

  3. Combine blend make and options in one dialogue box

    Combining blend 'make' and 'options' in one dialogue box would be a big time saver.

  4. 右クリック メニュー

    オブジェクトを選択してすぐに、右クリックでメニューを出したくてもでません。数秒空けるか、カーソルを少しズラすか、control+左クリックであればメニューが出るのですが、CS時代の操作方法に慣れているので、オブジェクトを選択して即座に右クリックができる方が断然使いやすいので、改善してください。

  5. Tool nesting groups

    I'm on a laptop. With the nested tools off to my right you can organize them to be in little clusters when you use them. Its great. When you have the three window options for color / gradient / swatches it would be nice to be able to click and drag a swatch onto the tab of one of the nested sets for a second and have it switch to the underlying window. For example, you drag a swatch square onto the gradient tab and then you could drop the swatch color right into the gradient slider. Now, you have…

  6. Making all functions recordable

    Corel has had this feature for ever. Need to increase productivity by recording actions and applying quick keys to it. But we need to record extensions, and scripts that we run.

  7. Disable default shortcuts

    Illustrator has an insane number of available shortcuts all enabled by default. As a casual user of Illustrator, I end up accidentally pressing a random configuration of keys simultaneously, only to then have to spend half an hour figuring out what happened and which keys I need to press to undo my mistake.

    Some of the default shortcuts are simply too advanced for casual users and should be disabled by when starting on a new account.

  8. Custom Layer Colours - new layers always the same colour

    Can you create a preference that makes every new layer use the same colour? The first thing I have to do when creating a new layer is to change the colour back to light blue (my preferred colour). I understand why a user might want different colours but I cannot see many of them with my colour vision deficiency. Thank you very much.

  9. Scrubby Sliders

    I am so used to scrubby sliders in Ps, just click on the name of the value and slide to adjust the value. In Illustrator it is still necessary to drop down a slider to adjust the value. This would speed things up and be consistent with your other applications.

  10. Please make the units setting bound to the files, or at least change with workspaces!

    Adding to this idea:
    https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-feature-requests/suggestions/32403850-make-units-and-grid-settings-to-be-bound-to-file#comments

    I work with both printed and digital formats, on top of that much of my work is multilingual, involving English, Japanese, Portuguese and other languages (at least we don't deal with LTR type... for the time!).

    As such, I'm constantly changing units from mm to pixels and points, type from points to mm to Q, it's a mess! And I do that several times a day.

    I guess the easier path would be to bind the units settings to the workspaces, as binding to the files would require changing the .ai format. But what do…

  11. Add a default option that lets you choose whether or not edges are shown.

    I print labels and we require proof approval from customers. This means the files I end up using ultimately get opened by at least 3 people. Any number of these people can save the files so that edges are hidden, however, on my end, I always want edges shown so I can better see where they are in relation to the white cut box (FXCUT) that's against the white background. I also maintain our proof templates, which, similarly, ends up being opened by multiple people.

    The idea I propose is that there be a global default setting for each iteration…

  12. Make "Transform" in top toolbar show measurments without a click

    I wish Illustrator would show the dimensions of a selected object in the toolbar, like InDesign. Currently, I need to click on "toolbar" to make changes. It would be great if this didn't require an extra click. InDesign's toolbar is far more accessible.

  13. Add a floating info box for Color Picker and Guides

    When dragging a guide from the ruler, a floating info box with the coordinates would be very helpful.

    Same for the color picker - a floating color value box, in addition the Info panel that can be hidden when the tool is active.

  14. Adjust handle colors on the fly

    Adobe doesn't take colorblindness into account when coloring the handles in Illustrator. I'm not talking about layer colors -- I don't care one whit about layer colors. I'm talking about the associated colors of the handles for the layer, which is the same color as the layer. You can keep layers colors multivariant if you wish, but when working within a document, I simply cannot see the handles when the layer color is against a color in the document that I cannot distinguish between. I've tried resizing the handles, but that does not always make a difference. My only workaround…

  15. Allow more complex calculations in numerical fields...

    Right now, we can perform simple calculations inside numerical fields. For example, if I want to set the width of an object to 48% of 12", I can enter in: "12 * 0.48" in the field and it will evaluate the statement before applying the result to the width. This functionality saves us a ton of time since we can calculate values that we would normally be doing on a physical or digital calculator.

    I would like the ability to perform more complex calculations in this way, such as: "17.5 * (2/3) + 0.25"

  16. Access to sub-layers has disappeared.

    Not sure if this is happening to everyone, but the arrows to access my sublayers have gone missing... and the ability to GET to my sublayers went with.

    I have updated, uninstalled, reinstalled, restarted... and it persists.

    Thoughts?

  17. Customizing any toolbar by right click on any empty space on it

    customizing any toolbar by right-clicking in an empty space as well as the three dots underneath any toolbar.
    Illustrator becomes popular for developers around the world and every day there is a new plugin to enhance working in Illustrator. but in some small resolution PC / Laptops when some plugins add new tools the toolbar becomes very tall and could not reach the (customize this toolbar) the three dots that arrange and customizing my tools.
    this feature will allow managing any numbers of tools as well as managing the toolbars itself. and it will improve the user experience related to…

  18. Allow adjustment of settings by sliding laterally on setting titles like in Photoshop

    I like how direct the method of adjustment is in Photoshop, it is very convenient and controllable. Most importantly it would allow reflexes to carryover from one app to the other. IMO this is an ethos that should pervade your apps - to make similar functions behave the same where possible.

  19. artboard name (top left corner on pasteboard) like XD

    Can we have the artboard name at the top left corner like Adobe XD and double-clicking the name will allow you to change the artboard name? Even handle to change the size of the artboard.

  20. gestures

    Make it so Windows version of Adobe programs are capable of all gestures such as zoom and pan/scroll. This works perfectly fine on my MacBook, but on Windows I'm only able to chose if I can scroll/pan or zoom, but cannot zoom and pan. This makes working with the program extremely difficult and infuriating when it's such a simple feature that works in every other basic program.

    I don't understand how this is still an issue when this has been posted on every Adobe forum for several years now. Especially now that you can't just purchase and own the programs,…
