  1. Have a panel that shows info and keyboard modifiers for the current tool

    All Adobe applications are quite complex beasts, and what all the tools do and particularly what holding different modifiers or keys do can be quite arcane.

    I imagine a panel you can have open on the side, and it will show information and the modifier options for the currently active tool.

    For instance for the Star tool, it can say what Shift, Option and Command keys do, and that you can press Arrow Up and Arrow Down to increase the number of points as you drag.

    Pro users can keep the panel closed, but it can really help new users…

  2. Please add grammar and spelling checker and correction option

    Please add grammar and spelling checker and correction options. I have lost a lot of money on printing just due to spelling minor mistake which made my all printing expenses to garbage.

  3. INTERACTIVE, HANDS-ON TUTORIALS IN ALL ADOBE APPLICATIONS

    Please create hands-on tutorials INSIDE the application. There used to be FUN AND INTERACTIVE Tutorials in ALL the Adobe application (such as make an icon).

    It really helped me learn illustrator quickly and effectively as I did the work. I was able to follow the instructions and actually remember them. It was a fantastic idea. what happened?
    Now I have to watch boring videos on the Adobe website that teach me nothing as they are not interactive and listening to the guy is so boring I hate it. Also switching from the website to the Adobe application to try the…

  5. Better Customer Care

    How about better customer follow up?

    I've had4 on-line tech support "episodes" over MANY, MANY hours, only to have the tech tell me nothing is wrong with Illustrator. I've asked to escalate the case with a follow up call from Senior Support TWICE (See attachments). We agreed on a call back time/day/number and I have not had any follow up from Adobe.

    Please get your act together! From what I've been reading on line, people's patience is running thin.

    Adobe! Are you listening?

  6. What has happened to the white selection tool?? I can no longer select or manipulate objects with it?

    How do you use the white selection tool now? It is not working like it used to and I can not do anything with it?

  9. Have a clear path to turn off tool tips/ rich tool tips and tours

    I appreciate you want to make your software more accessible but these features ruin the pro-user experience add better control over libraries while your at it I should be able to disable libraries once and globally.

  10. Please create hands-on tutorials inside application same as in AfterEffects

    AfterEffects has hands-on tutorials inside the application where user can learn and practice side-by-side simultaneously. Very useful and effective to have. Please create the same resources for Illustrator.

  11. Escape trying out a new feature

    Let me escape trying out a new feature you want me to try, because I don't want to try it. Give me an X. Give me a "close."

  12. This feedback/bug reporting systems is super confusing.

    This feedback/bug reporting systems is super confusing. I have given up on reporting bugs or providing feedback so many times, cause I land here and I can't manage.
    I want to report a bug, it tells me to "post my idea". But I want to report a bug, not give an idea! I change sections to make sure I'm on the Bugs, still get "ideas" everywhere. If I try to give feedback I get "request feature", again, not what I want to do... That search box that changes to a form and back to a search box... If I want…

  13. Let's add Vasily Hall's name to the Ai credits?

    Copied from : https://forums.adobeprerelease.com/illustratorpr/discussion/1507/lets-add-vasily-halls-name-to-the-ai-credits

    As you may be aware, Illustrator has a natively build CSV-import feature for variables now. This wouldn't have come if Vasily didn't undertake the effort to create this feature as a script, 3 years prior. https://github.com/Silly-V/Adobe-Illustrator/blob/master/Variable Importer/VariableImporter.jsx

    His contribution was:
    1. User research, connecting with users from all over the world to get a sense of whether anyone even wants to import CSV files and use graph variables.
    2. Naming convention syntax for visibility and graph variables.
    3. Logical mechanism for adding individual graph states within CSV record cells.
    4. A multitude of LinkedIn articles (…

  14. Welcome page doesn't seem to work

    Clicking on the 'see what you can create' or 'swap colours' panels does nothing on my windows 10 machine in Illustrator and InDesign. I like the idea of this though!

  15. Stop with the survey

    Please stop making the **** survey strip popup. I think I’ve had to close it at least 20 times over the past three months. It really irks me and makes me a little upset every time - it is really distracting.

  16. Automated "Helper-> search" for Windows users.

    C'mon. The iOS CC "help->search" tool will freaking show you where the button is.

    THAT IS 'POTENTIALLY' THEEEEE COOOLEST INTERFACE-FEATURE EVER.

    Windows CC "Help->Search" sends users to the internet.

    That's just plain mean. That's Racist! That's a hate crime!

    IF Hardware has that level of influence on the performance of your software, that should be BLATANTLY labeled "Batteries not included for Windows users"

    The users of your software are not always the ones who choose the hardware. Often, that is beyond control. If apple starts making true 3D animation machines, then the ground would be level.

    Until then, please do…

  17. List of fixes

    I use CC2018 behind a firewall, and don't have access to "Check for updates" menu option. Adobe used to post a list of fixes that were in a new version or patch (for most Adobe apps).
    I cannot find such a list anywhere, but I need to know what patches are available, and what is fixed, so I can request updates from IT department as appropriate.

  18. Take that light bulb icon that accesses tutorials and push it further...

    Take your tutorial access feature and push it further, make it a customizable recipe resource, not unlike a cookbook.

    • Enable users to save (links to) tutorials relevant to their specific interests AND allow them to bookmark.
    • This idea fits well with all your apps.
    • Explore some ways to encourage users to post accessible tutorials on Adobe Cloud, formatted for this function. That would stimulate your apps community greatly. Example: Zbrush
    Ps. The new properties feature is awesome. Thank you!

  19. 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.
