  1. Object position should be able to be locked.

    When aligning multiple objects to each other, all of them translates. There's no option to make one fixed (position locked) and then align all the other object to that fixed one. E.g. a content to a box object.

  3. Bring back the previous Illustrator CC toolbar

    Bring back the previous Illustrator CC toolbar. After years of having the AI tools in a particular spots, now they're all over the place and hard to find and the Edit Toolbar is a cluster#$%& of madness. Bring it back!

    We have not removed the previous toolbar, it is just that it is not the default. Please use the Window menu > toolbar to get back to the advanced toolbar

  4. Documented PDF User Guide for Illustrator

    I would love a documented user guide in a PDF printable format that offers step by step procedures on how to use Illustrator functions.

    Can you please send me the link for a PDF Illustrator User Guide, (documented).
    This would be greatly appreciated!

    Kind Regards

    Cate

  5. Copy/move artboards with the content

    Why have you deleted the function "copy/move artboards with the content" in the last update? It was really gorgeous! Now I have to unlock and make visible all the layers again to create several version of my graphic design, and it is really annoying! I would like the possibility to copy/move one or more artboards with the content, even if it is on locked or hidden layers, and without the content when it is on locked or hidden layers.

    Please, consider both functions, the copy/move with content was one of the best updates that you have ever made!!!

    Users have an option in Illustrator CC (22.1).
    Preferences>Selection & Anchor Display>"Move Locked and Hidden Artwork with Artboard"
    Please email us on sharewithai@adobe.com if it still does not solve your problem.

  6. Please update to allow newer Pantone swatches to be usable.

    For years Pantone's new colors have been released, yet I can't upload those books into Illustrator. So for years I've been able to see colors I can't use. Super frustrating. I use the Coated Color Bridge book in spot and cmyk. If I'm doing something wrong, PLEASE enlighten me!

  7. Width Tool Numeric Control

    When using the Width Tool to manipulate the width of a stroke, it would be helpful to have the option to alt+click and enter the desired width in a dialog box, in a similar fashion to the Rotate Tool.

  8. Warp Effect Not Working

    I've noticed that ever since upgrading to Illustrator CC 2018 (22.0.1) that the Warp Effect doesn't seem to work properly. The Arc and Arch effects will work, but applying any of the Flag, Wave, Fish or Rise effects won't change the object at all.

    Thank you to all who shared their files. We do not support flag, fish effects on a straight line with just two anchor points. The feature is implemented to work on the line segment which is not straight.
    Please refer to the attachment for supported and non supported scenarios. Should you have further query please email us on sharewithai@adobe.com

  9. Remove F1 key as help key

    I use the F-keys frequently for Actions. However, F1 is defaulted to launching Illustrator's help screen and I'm regularly hitting the key by mistake. Could we please have a different way to launch the help screen and free up the F1 key for other, customisable, uses?

    Thank you Ryan for your help.
    Here is the way to customise the keys – please thank Ryan if you found it useful.

    “You can go to edit/keyboard shortcuts, then choose menu commands. Find help, and clear the F1 key from it or pick it as another one. Save it as your own custom keyboard preset and you’re good to go.”
