  1. 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…

  2. 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:

  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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  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!

  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. Drag CC Library colors to Gradient panel

    Right now, users can drag Swatches to the Gradient panel to build gradients quickly. It would be really handy if we could drag colors from the CC Library panel to the Gradient panel in the same way.

  10. Libraries - Add Ability to Drag-and-Drop Swatches from Library Panel to Swatches Panel

    Add ability to drag-and-drop a color swatch from the Library Panel to the Swatches Panel.

    The functionality exists in the Library Panel Menu, but can't be executed by drag-and-drop. Drag-and-drop swatches is a age-old UI convention in Illustrator and it feels broken that a user can't currently do this.

  11. Tool's Properties Panel

    Properties Panel
    It does not make me the faster because Shortkeys for years I use is the better way, many options are available in those particular panels for each or individual usage according to work and in the control bar quickly those could be used well, that is much better.
    yeah, another good suggestion which is for Control panel, few useable options in property panel could be attached in Control Bar and then this panel would be better than it should be converted into Tools' Properties because many users do not know that many tools can be modified…

  12. Custom Tool Panel and Horizontal Tool Panels

    Allow Tool Panel to be customized, or to create several custom Tool Panel and save them with Workspaces.
    Also it will be great if one could position the Tool Panel Horizontally.

  13. The Color panel pops up when you click on stroke/fill selector

    The Color panel pops up every time you click on the stroke or fill selectors. There is no way to disable this panel from popping up, even if you close it, it will open and come to the forefront. Many of us don't need or use the color panel; we use the swatches or other panel. Why is this panel being forced on those of us who don't use/want it?

  14. Find Font window panel - expandable/resizable and searchable

    Please simply allow the Find Font window panel to be expandable/resizable. Difficult to tell between the different weights on long font names such as:
    Helvetica Neue LT Extended Heavy
    vs
    Helvetica Neue LT Extended Black

    The panel needs more horizontal space or even a tooltip to pop-out the full font name.

  15. Allow Customization of The Features In Properties Panel (2018)

    I would like to be able to rearrange (customize) the features in the new 2018 properties panel. I want to be able to add, remove and rearrange the features in the panel. This way the panel will only shows what I want it to show and get ride for the stuff I don't use. I would like to at least be able to collapse what I don't use.

  16. Multi panels for "Layer Panel"

    in case of more than 50 layers it difficult to move top layer under button layers. as we need to do scrolling

    Ability to open multi panel can enhance that work flow and make easy to move layer under other layers by moving one layer from first panel into second layer panel.

  17. OpenType features can be set in the Character panel

    Currently, OpenType features settings can only be set in the OpenType panel. As a result, the user experience is poor. Being able to set OpenType features in the Character panel will improve the user experience.

  18. Add a calculator panel!

    A simple calculator panel to basic math. This would be great in ALL Adobe products, in fact.

  20. Blend Tool > Blend Options Panel stinks, nothing personal.

    I use the Blend tool. A lot. When I start a blend, the Properties Panel helpfully tells me that I have a Blend. Thanks for that. But I still have to go to Object>Blend>Blend Options to get any options for the Blend tool. What if the Blend tool options would magically appear in the Properties panel while I'm using that tool?

    Also, the Blend Options panel will not let me make any changes to the blend other than Spacing or Orientation. How about putting the other Blend Options (Expand, Release, Reverse Spline, etc.) in the Blend Options panel so that…
