  1. 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.

  2. History Panel

    I'm a handicapped person with the ability of using my right hand only. So, I don't have the access on keyboards that much. I use screen keyboards or other tools for typing also to gain full controls on various application and software. I also managed to make the Photoshop my own. I figured out and arranged the interface of Photoshop to make it better for my usability where the History Panel was the essential tool for me. And when it comes to Illustrator, I got disappointed as it doesn't includes the History Panel. It's difficult going to edit then…

  3. 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!

  5. Bring back the History Panel

    It would be really nice to have the history panel back. Having the history panel back would make it so you don't have to hit ctrl-z so many times.

  6. history panel for Illustrator and all Adobe applications

    Like in photoshop and other programmes introduce a History panel to make things easier.
    if you don't like the idea, you can make it an optional click in the preferences or something but for some people this is a must!

  7. Create an Action from History Panel

    Ok... I've hit on an idea.. I think. Have you ever been experimenting and hit on a great idea, or manually created an effect to lettering, and would like to apply the same treatment to other objects?

    This could be an option in the Actions panel to create an Action from history. This would involve a couple new tools. A History panel like Photoshop, and an option to create an Action from already performed steps.

  8. Cluster nudges as one "move" for undoing

    In Photoshop, when a user nudges an object by holding down an arrow key for an interval of time, PS clusters that series of nudges as one "move". Then the user can undo all of the nudges at once with one "Undo move" command in the History panel. Since Illy doesn't have a History panel (and why is there no History panel? Don't like it, don't use it.), it's impossible to undo all of the nudges with one "Undo". Please make Illy treat nudges like PS does.

  9. Version History - 2 requests

    I sorta like the new version history option. It's at least kinda a step towards the history panel so many people want. There are a couple of features that I think would improve it. (If these already exist and I'm missing them can you teach me where they are?)

    My first request is adding an option to save a version at anytime you choose. Currently it only saves every 5 minutes. Say I make a bunch of changes in only 3 minutes. I'd then have to wait another 2 minutes for it to create a save point before I could…

  11. Each item in the document to have its own persistent history

    Linear document history seems very dated considering how much ram computers have these days, a hierarchical multi-dimensional object oriented history seems like a good idea. It would be amazing if I could choose to access the history of each item in the layers panel. it might work similar to file versioning solutions like GIT.

    This history could be optionally saved into the file or cloud library so it can be accessed across sessions.
