  1. Show length of path

    Need to know the exact length of paths, Paths at angles, can't tell length when need to change all, no way to adjust by length. Seems like a basic thing but can't find it anywhere.

  2. Variator, from Scriptographer

    A lot of the Scriptographers were artistic coding, but some of them were crazy UI improvement.

    The variator is a "transform each" with random. It should be a basic tool. Adding some randomness to any bunch of items is a a really tedious process at the moment. You should figure out a tool.

    Ho wait ! It already exists, you should just copy it : https://scriptographer.org/scripts/general-scripts/variator/

    Thank you in advance, even if i don't hope too much about this feature request ****, since you still didn't add keyboard shortcut to rename the layers...

  3. Make Smart Guides work consistently with Symbols

    Precise work with Symbols is difficult/impossible because it's treated differently by Smart Guides than normal artwork.

    -Anchor/Path Labels are not displayed on Symbol-ized artwork
    - It's not possible to grab Symbol-ized artwork by a path segment (only anchors) making precise alignment impossible

  4. Grouping objects without merging into same layer

    I would like to manage to align a drawing that is composed of objects that are spread in several layers. The only way I can do this is by grouping these objects and aligning the composed drawing of several objects. The problem with this is that all object get merged into the same layer.
    Using the selection is not an alternative because it will align all the object withing the composition, changing my drawing.
    I end up creating guidelines and alining my drawing manually which takes me a lot of time.
    Thanks

  5. Make my own brush

    When I use AI with my Wacom I ALWAYS make my own brush. It would be REALLY great if you could make your own brush on the iPad. Making my own brush allows me to get the precision I need from every stroke without having to go back and alter anything. I’ve been searching the iPad app for this feature but I couldn’t find it. If it’s something already available on the iPad app could you please let me know😊

  8. Set exact dimensions to one object in a group that affects the entire group.

    Example: I have 3 squares. 2 large ones and one small one overlapping the two. (see picture)
    The task is to set the small red square to exactly 140 x 140 mm without losing the proportions in size or position to the blue or green box.

    I want an exact scale up where the end result is that the red square is 140 mm x 140 mm.
    I can use rulers, but the small square doesn't snap since it isn't touching the bounding box. Using this I can eyeball it and get a result like 140.062 x 140.062 mm. I…

  9. improve Blob Brush

    Hi, I use very often the Blob Brush tool, I think it could be a real plus to make more with it. First, to add constraint between 2 points of click . Two, make more steps between precise and rounded in the option panel. and Three make the same thing for the eraser too, because it seems to be the same as the blob brush but in negative. Is it technically possible?

  14. Please change constrain on Ai as you did on PS

    PS now does not need to hold shift to constrain in proportion. Please do same for Ai

  16. Allow Symbol Instances to update during master symbol editing

    When making patterns or complex design based on instanced symbols it's vital to see how the seams between repeated symbols update. It would be good to see all instances (in view) update as you're editing a "master", and for the alignment tools to take the other instances into account so you can make pieces align with each other across a grid. Today the instances will only update AFTER you're done editing and it makes for a lot of going back and forth.

  17. Better fine tuning blob brush

    Hello,
    I would like to have a better setting option for the accuracy of the blob brush. The middle setting is actually too straight for me. Lines are straightened mercilessly. If you move the slider one point to the left, they are not straightened enough. That's why it would be great to have four additional options (see screenshot, red lines).

    Thanks a lot
    Gabi

  18. les outils sélection sont inversés !

    les outils de sélection et sélection directe sont inversés !
    Si on sélectionne l'outil de sélection directe (icône flèche pleine) il apparait évidé sur le plan de travail et inversement....C'est énervant !!

  19. Hello, Many users have been asking for this feature for a long time: draw a line between two points with the eraser freely, without it being

    Hello, Many users have been asking for this feature for a long time: draw a line between two points with the eraser freely, without it being at 45°. Why is that not possible? Like drawing with solid lines, without having to convert the contour line thickness (like the spot shape brush). Or constrain the brush as a spot between two precise places, which would amount to the same.

  20. Configurar tu barra de acciones rápidas

    Poder configurar tu propia barra de acciones rápidas al seleccionar uno o varios objetos, de manera que puedas tener las herramientas que más uses en función a tu trabajo.
    En concreto uso con mucha frecuencia la opción “shape builder” y cada vez que tengo que realizar esa acción tengo que pulsar dos ó tres veces una vez selecciono, si estuviera en la barra de acciones flotante que aparece al seleccionar ahorraría mucho tiempo.

    Gracias!
