  2. Better Opacity Shortcuts

    As far as I can tell, the only opacity shortcuts are

    10%
    20%
    30%
    40%
    50%
    60%
    70%
    80%
    90%
    100%

    That means the following opacities are missing:

  3. 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.

  5. Points I would like to add to the Smart Guide

    Points I would like to add to the Smart Guide
    1. Point touching a regular circle from a fixed point
    2. Points intersecting the perpendicular from the fixed point to the straight line
    Benefits increase the possibility of plotting and increase workability

  6. wacom

    Have been unable to transform using my Wacom intuos pro in illustrator for the last few versions. The selection tool constantly defaults to rotate the object unless I zoomed right in. It is incredibly frustrating for workflow.
    I have contacted wacom who advised the issue is with Illustrator and not the tablet.

  7. Drawing custom perspective grids

    Most projects don't start in Illustrator or need at least some kind of reference to draw around - for example a product picture or rough sketch. So in most cases Adobe's perspective tool in Ai is absolutely useless. There is simply no way to always find the right perspective in your reference with that tool!
    Many professionals draw custom grids with the help of an odd star with very long and thin end points. They draw one, two or three stars depending on how many vanishing points they have. This is a super old and powerful technique of illustrators and…

  8. Artistic Corner Options

    I had to make a customized corner style for a project that needed to match its existing vintage look and realized how limited the options were. I had to paste the shape into indesign and even then I still needed to modify them after I converted it back to Ai in order to match the desired look.
    I know with nowadays minimalism we rarely make complicated borders and corners anymore but I still don't get it why we have millions of fancy brushes for stroke but non for corner....

    I hope there'll be an update with better options for this…

  9. Forcing us to use Preview Bounds to get cap handles in CC 2019 is a no

    For years we've had cap handles on strokes. Now we have to turn on Preview Bounds to get them. Unacceptable.

  10. Gradient tool

    Can we change the gradient tool so we can spread the gradient along a stroke with the gradient tool and not be limited to the 3 symbols on the gradient panel?

  11. The ability to design in ONLY whole number

    The ability to design in ONLY whole number, giving us a checkbox to disallow decimal values for size & transform.

    I spend much time correcting the decimal values that pop up randomly while designing and it is rather frustrating. It would be great to have a way to allow ONLY whole number values in location & size. See attached. this happens with .5 values as well as things like .812 which make it really tough trying to align!

  12. Can you please make a tool to make it possible to add measure to the drawing!

    I make some illustrations of furnitures. It is only outline drawings, but I really need to be able to add measure to the drawing so people easily can se the measure of the furniture.

  13. Adjust the length of the extremitys to avoid outline vectorization

    Avoid contour crossing without vectorizing the paths and losing my paths (if I ever want to reshape my shape)

  15. Direct selection tool

    Can you please put the selection tool back next to the direct selection tool instead of making it a hidden tool. It's very annoying having to pull it out to have both tools.

  16. Update corner widget so it is not constrained by other points...

    Currently, other anchors on a path will constrain the corner widget. Attached is a very simple example. I would like for the tool to be a bit more intelligent in how it handles corners in these situations.

  17. Freeze width nodes in their position when extending or shortening a path

    Maybe this feature exists already but I haven't been able to find it.

    When using the width tool, it would be nice if you could "freeze" the width nodes in their position, so you could extend or shorten the path. Today the nodes adjust to the new length of the path, messing up all your previous work.

  19. Add option for sketch-style relative positioning for grouped objects

    Ex: I create a button that consists of a rectangle with the text "submit" centered in it. No matter how wide or tall I make the rectangle, I want "submit" to remain centered horizontally and vertically within it.

    Sketch allows this via "pinning". I can set a parent object-- in this case, the rectangle-- and tell a child object---in this case, the text-- to maintain a certain distance from the top, left, right, and/or bottom of the parent object, or to remain centered to the object at all times, regardless of how the parent is scaled.

    In addition, multiple objects…
