  2. Make Adobe Fresco a plug in or extension for Illustrator.

    I want to use fresco but can't because i dont have a compatible machine, but it also makes no sense that drawing and painting on illustrator is difficult.

    either allow fresco on more things or make a plugin that allows illustrator to function like fresco.

  3. Button to reveal a Layer on "Layer window"

    Is there a possibility to create a right-clic option to "reveal on Layer window" from any object? Sometimes when I receive some .ai files, everything is un-organized and must travel over layers and layers... This option is in After Effects and is very helpful.
    Thanks for reading!

  4. Align to...BUTTON

    In a past version of AI, the "align to artboard or selection" was a button rather than a menu. Please bring back the button! I switch between these two options hundreds of times a week and the menu wastes time that adds up.

    Thanks so much always!

  5. Export file format order

    Is there a way to change the order of formats in the dropdown? It would be great to have the default choice be the format I use 99% of the time?

  6. New Crop Tool: Crop Placed Image to Mask Shape

    Images (jpg, png or photoshop formats) placed in illustrator (with "link” box checked) and then masked to fit within the document or a special shape often have more image then is needed. This adds to the saved .ai file size. So users need to edit the original in photoshop and crop approx. to the size of the mask in illustrator to trim down the photo and its data size.

    The “Crop Image” function will allow users to trim the dimensions of the image, but requires embedding after cropping, which actually adds file size to .ai file.

    It would really help…

  7. Problem with NEW LAYERS Colors - Expanded

    It has been posted but it seems it has been ignored. I suspect that it is due to the fact that majority of the ILLUSTRATOR TEAM are NOT real users and/or designers. If that offends you, face the truth of it or provide some reasoning.
    Bottom line is that making new layers assigns different colors for the selected objects AND most of these colors are just useless! I have created a visual reference for the first 8 colors for comparison.
    So, please with sugar and honey on top and a sweet chai on the side… I am NOT suggesting that…

  8. Use of Adobe Fresco with external drawing devices like Kamvas Pro 22!!!

    Hi there, I am currently using Kamvas Pro 22 as a drawing device. This external drawing screen is connected to my laptop. It is very frustrating Adobe Fresco seems to have been developed to work with a very limited selection of devices only. Please adapt it accordingly.

  9. Checkbox to saving process for different file formats

    When we save for clients different file formats, it takes a lot of time to choose PNG and save, AI and save, EPS and save, PDF then save. Maybe a checkbox when we export what kind of file formats we want to export, and it also rewrites the earlier files.

  10. Action History Panel

    Create a history panel or a way to see and choose the actions done, like in Photoshop, instead of having to press ctrl-z fifty times!

  12. Filter "Recent Files" to include only AI documents

    RECENT FILES SHOULD IDEALLY BE ONLY AI DOCUMENTS.

    If I have exported say 10 jpgs in my previous session, on start-up my RECENT FILES is over-run with those JPG file names. They all have the same thumbnail too. That's outrageous!

  13. 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…

  15. Home screen customisation

    Home screen needs more customisation, such as being able to add 'Create a new file' shortcuts for sizes/templates I often use, currently I only use Illustrator for creating and modifying print files so web, iPhone, HDV etc shortcuts are completely useless to me, as is the A4 and postcard shortcuts as I work in many different sizes. Also being able to make the thumbnails for recently used files smaller to be able to have more files showing would be a huge help.

  16. Support for older versions of Illustrator

    Support for older versions of Illustrator. I often need to open ancient files, and I have clients running Adobe CS and earlier.

    This planned-obsolescence scheme is out of control.

  18. Add a virtual laser pointer option in presentation view mode

    We are an academic science lab that uses Illustrator to make slides for our data presentations. With the COVID crisis, all of our meetings and conferences became virtual. In presentation mode, the cursor is an arrow pointer, but I think it will be incredibly useful to have the option to make cursor a laser pointer (like in Microsoft powerpoint). Going forward, I think more and more meetings will be held virtually, and having a virtual laser pointer will be very useful in illustrator.

  19. Actually Fix Adobe Illustrator

    It sucks how I'll be able to use Adobe Illustrator for a bit on my laptop (MacBook Air 13 inch Retina) then it crashes my entire laptop, it will freeze and my tabs would flicker really bad and at times part of my screen would go black while the other half is glitching, I downloaded the entire Creative Cloud to use for work not to sit around and get frustrated while trouble-shooting all of the problems with this application.
