  1. symmetry

    This is more of a feature request for Project Gemini rather than Illustrator but I made the mistake of assuming that "Photoshop for the iPad" would obviously come equipped with the symmetry tool available in Project Gemini but I understand now the consequences of assuming. I tend to use Adobe Draw for most the majority of my work for those nice hard illustrator friendly vector lines. I often try and just draw half of a character and then duplicate flip and merge together but this never really works quite the way I'd like it to. So, basically what I'm trying…

  2. Bring back the "+ Shift" command for scaling objects

    Please, bring back the "Shift" command that allows you to scale objects with the regular Selection Tool (V), and give the new tool as an option, not a default.

  4. view Anchor Points

    View Anchor Points selection under the view tab. I'd like to see Anchor Points anytime I click on an object if I have this view selected, not just a barely there blue line that is hard to tell what is clicked as it currently is when you select Show Edges under the view tab.

  6. Smooth(er) tool

    I’d love it while using the blob brush tool if the smoothing worked nicely for crossing paths.

    Actually, cleaning is a tedious process I would avoid.

  8. After Effects Style Point Manipulation in Illustrator

    In After Effects you can select points within a path, double click, then transform just those points (around a movable centre of axis).

    Very quick and useful tool.

    I don't understand why Illustrator can't do this.

  9. More Image tracing options

    It's better if you increase or make a custom image trace more than 16 you have.

  10. aligning points

    aligning points always goes to left point of selected not right (aligning 2 points of a shape e.g triangle)

  11. centerline of shapes

    Need a feature to easily create the centerline of a shape.
    There is not great way to do this currently and work around methods are half baked at best.

  12. Rotate objects around an anchor point but each object stays in it's original orientation

    See attached image to help make sense of my ramblings.

    This may already be an option that I'm not aware of but I'd love the ability to rotate objects around a point but those objects NOT to be rotated but just repositioned. In the example I attached, I want to be able to rotate the outer orange circles around the centre point of the blue circle. When I do this, the circles and text rotate. This is a simple example but I think it's got potential on more complex things.

    A buddy told me Adobe was considering purchasing or licensing tools/features from Astute Graphics, UK? Any validity to this?

  14. Draw with paintbrushes as if you were really drawing!

    For example, some of the brushes when drawing appear as a purple pathway first before turning into a line from the brush you have chosen. This can ve very frustration if you are using for example the water colour brushes. You should also have a circle radius around the pointer before drawing that enables us to see the size of the brush as you can on some features in photoshop. This would be very helpful to artists to see the size of the brush they are using and the brush lines you have chosen to appear instantly as if it…

  16. Snap!

    Can someone please explain to me why you can turn off "snap to grid", "snap to pixel", and "snap to point" off, but you can't turn "snap to path" off. It used to be you could just easily turn off "snap", which would turn all forms of snap off. Now, when I'm trying to adjust points on a path, the anchor handles still snap to path. The only way to get it to not snap to path is to zoom very close in. This is problematic when you can't see your entire curve, because you're zoomed in, and you can't…

  19. Option for drag select to ignore center points of objects

    When selecting multiple shapes on top of a large shape, it's difficult to avoid the center point of the background shape. The current workaround is to constantly lock and unlock shapes, or shift click on different objects several times. Drag selection would be easy if it only detected the edges of shapes.
