  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  5. Guías inteligentes Illustrator

    (Español)Hola! Me gustaría que incluyeran en las próximas actualizaciones una manera que se puedan imprimir las guías inteligentes cuando creas un archivo Illustrator (ai.) y guardas como en (pdf.) Sin la necesidad de ir tirando lineas en el mismo documento que estás trabajando sobre las guías inteligentes. Con el fin de que se vean las guías inteligentes en el documento pdf. Espero que la incluyan, sería una gran mejora.
    (English) Hi, I would like to include in future updates a way that you can print out the Smart Guides when you create an Illustrator file (ai.) and save it as…

    Please let us define separate increment values for each arrow key, or at least up/down and left/right.

  7. Hiperlinks

    Right now you must use Acrobat or Indesign to integrate hiperlinks in the file. You can do the 0% opacity trick (putting a hiperlink in 0% opacity on top of the text you want to link) but it's not usable or efficient.
    I have so many files that are 90% illustracions, so it's the best for me to use Illustrator, but I would love to include the links in the file, not having to edit it in other softwares afterwards...

  8. Streamline the Fresco To Illustrator Export Process

    Like many I use Illustrator for its Vector properties in order to animate within After Effects, with the agility to scale up assets infinitely when clients change their minds about shots & movements.

    iPads Adobe Draw, meant my assets could become so much more detailed. Which was great! While the push to desktop feature was glitchy for me at best it still mostly resulted with having a neat AI file version of the Draw one. That I could Import into AE with ease. Update with ease. etc.

    It's also useful that I can bring in AI assets to PS as…

  9. Have the Align Tool, align to Canvas when only one shape is selected, like in XD.

    Would it possible to make the align tool Center an object to Canvas if only one shape is selected? Adobe XD does this and it feels intuitive and saves a lot of time. Also it would be nice if the "align to selection", "align to key object", and "align to canvas" options could be either all three visible in the panel or a toggle button. Clicking on the drop down and then moving the mouse down to switch them is killing my wrist. I often go back and forth between aligning selections and aligning to canvas.

    Thank you,
    Patrick

  10. The new button layout

    I have found that the new button layout is not intuitive. I understand from talking with support that this is supposed to help new users. I don't think the extra steps to use certain functions is helpful, especially if you are coming from applications where all the buttons are readily available in the sidebar. Perhaps using a search bar mixed with the old layout style would be helpful. New users could search for their tool, while old users could access the tool they need more quickly. Perhaps also merging the top tool bar style and functionality in photoshop into illustrator.…

  11. Add ability to hyperlink text

    Make text linkable to a url or email when exported to a PDF, like you can already do in InDesign.

    Only being able to do this in a PDF means that if you make an update in Illustrator and export as a PDF again, you have to re-do all your hyperlinks.

  12. Document Color Mode - add option of Grayscale

    I need to make a lot of documents that must print in one color. I truly wish Illustrator offered a Document Color Mode of Grayscale - that mode would prevent use of color in any object created in ai, and would convert anything Placed, imported, or otherwise part of the document as Grayscale. It would also be good to have an "Open As" Grayscale option...

  13. Bring back right-click Opacity Mask

    Remember when you could right click and select 'Opacity Mask'?

    Yeah, those were the days. The process is twice as long now unless you have the 'transparency' window as a permanent fixture in your workspace.

  14. Split- screen on all on adobe software

    Can you please consider adding the split-screen view to your softwares, predominantly Ai, Ps & Id. It is pretty hard to follow up with online classes/tutorials from Udemy, YouTube, Domestika if I have to keep switching windows back and forth and it is really frustrating. Help us Designers tackle tasks easier and more effective during this pandemic and busy workload

  15. Provide an option for making artboard names visible on the artboard (like when editing artboards). This would be so helpful!

    Provide an option in Adobe Illustrator to show artboard names on the artboard/on top of the artboard (like when editing artboards). This visible naming would greatly help to keep artboards organized in large, multiple artboard files.

  18. spark icons in illustrator

    With the icons in Adobe Spark being free to use, and especially now that we have the ability to save files from Spark as a PDF, I've found myself utilizing the iconset from Spark in Illustrator (across Adobe CC really) by creating a blank document, inserting icons, saving as PDF, opening in Illustrator.

    It would be awesome if this process could be streamlined with the icons from Spark possibly being added to Illustrator, Photoshop, etc. Possibly from an addon, or by adding a new live and constantly updated set of symbols similar to how Adobe Fonts has been incorporated into…
