  1. brush tool

    When drawing a complex shape with the brush tool it just stops working after a certain amount of time. Im not sure if it is because it has used too many points to make the shape or what, but its very frustrating. FIX YOUR PROGRAM PLEASE.

  2. Merge and tile collection of images

    Collections of images should be able to be merged into one image and tiled. That would make it a lot easier to make patterns.

  3. Sometimes when I use the Shift (m) tool, I get duplicate layers. Is there a tool to only select the top layers and delete bottom layers?

    Sometimes when using the shift (m) tool, I delete out centers of objects, and then it creates multiple layers as duplicates. I must put a stroke on the top layer so that It can be cut out by my plotter. Well if there are duplicate layers, then all the layers get the same stroke, and then my plotter cuts multiple cut lines. Is there a tool to only highlight the top showing layers, and delete any duplicate layers underneath?

  4. block no selecteced objects

    Hi there,

    I would like to ask adobe for:

    Some kind of hotkey which block/freeze "no selected objects" so when you are working you don't worry about select/move/delete other objects by mistake.

    Also very helpful when you are selecting those tiny anchor points.

    For 2017 christmas please ;-)

    Thanks,
    Marco B.

  6. dashed line gap size

    please allow the gap size to be completely variable. right now max gap is 13.88". This feature would be useful for putting grommet marks on banners, normally 24" spacing but can be many different spacings ( but not on the same banner). Thanks Bob

  7. Tracing with machine learning or something similar

    My question is: Is there is any program or chance that the illustrator trace will use less points and be more accurate?
    I love using the illustrator and I love tracing pictures with hand, but sometimes I just don't have the time or the energy to do it manually and the available trace solution is just not 10/10 for die cut lines and sometimes logo recreations (when the customer can send only a 100x100 pixel file, because of reasons).
    If there was a chance you made something that would check, analyse, and learn from my (and other volunteers') manual tracings…

  8. pen tool curved strokes

    Not sure if this is a bug, a setting, a or a feature. But the stroke will not fill properly. This atrocity only occurs when attempting to make a curved line. Please help.

  9. A 'Remove Duplicate/Wholly Obscured Objects' feature

    A 'Remove Duplicate/Wholly Obscured Objects' feature

    I can pay for a plugin that removes duplicate objects that are immediately above/below a copy. I need something more sophisticated; an option to clean up a drawing by removing all duplicate objects and all wholly obscured objects.

  10. Transform by Reference Line Numerically

    I would love to see a "Transform by Reference Line Numerically" feature where user draws a line across an object in any direction, then is able to specify the size they want. This is helpful for raster images where there is no actual vector line to accurately resize to. I use embroidery digitizing software and this is a cool feature. Wilcom Software Transform by Reference Line Numerically.

    I've included a screen shot of the Wilcom Manual to hopefully explain better than i can articulate.

  11. Rotate multiple shapes one time but each ones around its anchor point

    Dear Adobe
    Can we please have the possibility to select many shapes and rotate them all one time but each one be rotated around its anchor point?
    I think it will help us to make great designs quickly.
    Thanks and I hope you take my proposal in consideration

    Need More Info  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    Hi Nacer,

    Does the menu item Object > Transform > Transform Each… not work for you? You can also choose the reference point on the 9-point reference widget in the dialog.

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

  13. I have a tablet that is not a Wacom. Wish I could have pressure sensitivity with it. It seems you only support Wacom tablets. : (

  14. Make Object-Path menu a part of Right-Click menu

    Or at least a full part of the Properties palette. It would be a much faster workflow when adding/removing anchor points. Most of those menu items are used often enough to warrant an R-Click placement.

  15. Start drawing (onPenDown) Event option like Photoshop.

    Having an option of drawing with the brush, pencil or blob tool on a (PenDown) Event, like in photoshop. Currently a dot or line, only appears on a penUp or penMove. thus it seems like there is a delay when drawing small shading or detailing lines quickly.
    Any delay for artists can be annoying.

    It would great if Ai had that normal event of traditional drawing on paper. mouseUp and mouseMove is ok for a mouse, but a penDown is needed - i think.

    If there is such an option, let me know. I cant seem to find it, or…

  16. stop Live corners assumptions

    When drawing with the curvature, I haven't tested with regular pen, if you draw a mix of corners and somewhat curved surfaces, then you go back to add some nice radiused corners, you will likely be annoyed by illustrator Thinking that you intended to draw a giant chamfer.

    No, I didn't draw a large chamfer. Do not assume I drew a large chamfer. Assuming a radius when illustrator sees a tangent arc connecting two lines is Great. But with chamfer there's nothing to be tangent to. So just because I drew two sharp corners in a row, before two curved…

    This should not be happening. Seems like a bug. The corner should not become a chamfer unless you do an Option-click on the live corner widget. Could you please share more details on when this happens?

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

  17. From hand writing to font and design

    Urgent help needed. I need to upload my hand writing and create a regular foont from it. I also need to upload two words manually designed and to create a regular writing for a tattoo.

  18. Perspective anchored objects - Advanced perspective manipulation

    I've been wanting something to solve the following use-case for a while:

    When adjusting a 2D illustration drawn in perspective, to a new position within that perspective (think cereal box rotating on a surface), I find myself spending a lot of time adjusting anchors and curves. The new shape tools have been a huge help, but they can go further!

    It would be AMAZING to anchor 2D drawings to a perspective plane and update them with a simple rotation within that plane (like you would in 3D)

    How would this work? Illustrator would assume outer lines would move more slowly…

  19. pencil tool selection behaviour adjusmtent

    A detail that im missing from the legacy pencil tool.

    Its a missing detail in the option keep to path selected or deselected after being drawn.

    When this option is unchecked the object is deselected.
    If the path is selected again to be drawn upon to adjust the shape. It deselects it again.
    Now thats all logical and according to what the option says its supposed to do.

    BUT

    The legacy pencil tool before its rewrite it worked almost like that but not quite the same, and it was great.

    So you had the option to have the path deseletced after…
