  1. 単位の自動切り替え機能

    カラー形式によって文字や線の単位を自動で切り替えてくれる、もしくは予めいくつか設定を保存しているものに切り替えるという機能が欲しいです。
    DTPとWebデザイン両方をIllustratorで行う場合、DTPはミリメートル、Webはピクセルと単位が異なるため、その都度環境設定から単位を変更するのが若干手間だと感じています。

    例えばアートボードのカラー形式によって単位を変更する機能があるととても便利です
    (CMYKに設定すればミリメートル、RGBならピクセルになるという風に)
    ご検討のほどよろしくお願い致します。

  2. Opening Multi-Page PDFs should have a larger preview or scalable preview

    The Open PDF window box that comes up when you try to open a Multi-Page PDF should have a larger preview. In the Open PDF window much of the text can be garbled, which doesn't help if you are not sure which page of a 49 page document you need to open.

  3. Unoutline Text

    When creating a user interface at my job in illustrator, aligning text and iconography is very important. It would be awesome if I were able to create a bunch of live text, create outlines of this text, and move and align text all over the art board then somehow, UN-OUTLINE all the text and make all the text that you aligned to be re-editable and live text.

    This would be phenomenally useful.

  4. The ability to increase the text size of any menu, pallete or dock item. Some of us are going blind.

    Give users more flexibility with the program interface please. This will help alot of people with eye strain.

  5. 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.

    Need More Info  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    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

  6. Introduce reset option for shear/rotation/scaling

    Currently, having used the Shear or Scaling tool on an object cannot be undone - except by undoing ANY previous changes to a document, plus the document may not have been closed and reopened, thereby losing the undo stack.

    I'd like to suggest to add a Reset Object option to AI, allowing to reset an object's shear, rotation and scaling attributes to their original values at the time that object was created.

    The suggested Reset Object option should open a confirmation dialog containing three checkboxes for the user to check:


    Reset the following object attributes:

    □ rotation
    □ scaling
    □…

  7. Bleed View - a view mode that shows just the artwork

    Add a view mode that shows only artwork on the artboards, like in InDesign. Where I don't see the bleed and the artwork on it.

  8. Set default font for all languages

    There should be a way to set default fonts for all language inputs. I use traditional chinese in a lot of my work but the default font uses japanese Kanji, which doesn't hold all the traditional chinese characters, making it difficult for me to change every time.

  9. 最近使用したものの一覧にファイルパスを表示する

    最近使用したもの一覧はインターフェースとして便利ですが、同一ファイル名を使用したりするケースでは判別がつかず、ファイル管理上、危険が伴うので、ファイルパスを表示するなど、どこかにユニーク情報を入れてほしい。

  10. Pg Up & Pg Down

    Hi guys! I have a feature request. Usually the rule of thumb is if you can hotkey it or select it from a menu then you can build it into an action. There's one exception I've found.

    Illustrator will respond to using the Page Up and Page Down keys on your keyboard to navigate your artboards. BUT it ignores these commands if you're recording an action.

    We could make some really robust and powerful actions if we could program actions to navigate through the artboards. Please please please add this?

    PS it would also be amazing if variables could navigate…

  11. Introduce Undo History panel

    Please introduce Undo panel to Adobe Illustrator, listing all the steps that have been performed on a document during the current session, so one can quickly switch between any previous state and current state after testing a number of changes by clicking any item in the displayed Undo stack.

    See this Adobe Forums thread for details:

  12. Make Toggle Between Color Picker/Swatches Universal As In Gradient Color Tabs

    I would also like there to be a way to make color model selection more universal - such as mentioned, if you have chosen HSB in the color picker that then becomes the default for new colors and color menus that appear. Also would love to see the ability to toggle between color picker and color swatches everywhere - the only place I believe it currently is found implemented that way is in the gradient color stops. Most of the time I'll work with HSB, and would love it not to have to select HSB each time or place the…

  13. Prevent "Align paragraph" from moving the text from its position

    It's by far the thing that annoys me the most about Illustrator;
    when you have your point text already positioned you need it to be aligned to a side and when you press the "align" button in the paragraph options the text moves and aligns to its previous center.
    It's a complete time-waster!

  14. Pathfinder

    The Pathfinder window contains the ever useful 'Unite' - the menu option of Pathfinder does not (I would like to be able to create a custom keyboard command for the Unite feature).

    Thanks! and I just want to say that I've been using Illustrator since 1990. Love ya!

  15. Turn Off Always on Top

    This really goes for any Adobe program but the programs always pop to the top of all of my windows which drives me crazy. I hate when I'm trying to multi-task only to have the Progress window pop up in the middle of my view. Or worse when the program Window itself jumps to the front. I use this software in a professional setting so I'm always working on something else when my files are loading. Please stop forcing the program and progress bars to the front of all open windows.

  16. Increase Bleed Limit!

    1 inch bleed limit may seem extreme for offset (usually 1/8") or packaging (1/4"), but people use Illustrator for all kinds of projects! Textile vendors want much more. The limit makes proofing annoying because we need to get approvals without bleed.

  17. NUMERATE!

    As a function of the transform tool, or perhaps a tool in it's own right, a feature to numerate copies in sequence and/or apply fully scanning bar or QR codes. E.g. raffle tickets, concert tickets, coupons, vouchers, etc.

    This would be invaluable as a time-saving measure, and allow an artist/designer to keep something like tickets completely in-house. I've been working with Illustrator for 15 years, and to my knowledge there's no feature that does anything like this. When I design concert or raffle tickets I have to use a 3rd party vendor, pretty much just for the bar code and…

  18. Artboard-specific Layers

    When working with multiple artboards, it would be very helpful to have artboard-specific layers displayed on the Layers panel as opposed to one long blob of all layers from all artboards.
