  1. Polygonal Lasso/Rubber Band effect for standard lasso

    Polygonal Lasso/Rubber Band effect for standard lasso. Should work just like PS lasso. You don't get a break now. Once you start a lasso selection it's on until you've completed your selection.

  2. Free transform reference point should affect resize too not just rotation (as PS)

    When I change the reference point I use it mostly for resize, not rotation. But in Illustrator this has no effect. I believe it should happen while using Alt+resize as that wouldn't change the default. Alt would only change the position of the resized object if the reference point is moved from the middle.
    I feel this would be natural to have and I'm really surprised this is not part of the free transform implementation. Photoshop and even Animate works like this! (Animate is erroneous with Alt+drag, but you don't need to hold that there)

  5. Bring back the rounded corners in the rectangle dialog

    Please place the rounded corners back into the rectangle dialog window. The new experience for this feature is undiscoverable and not intuitive at all. The usage pattern is inconsistent with the rest of the drawing tools e.g. polygon, stars... Have you consider testing it on users before launching the new 2019 version? Please do not redesign for the sake of redesign. Your users are not being efficient in their workflows because they have to spend time to figure it out where those features have gone. I am very sorry but this is a frustrating experience.

  6. More precision with the Knife Tool

    I'd like to see more adjustment options for the knife tool. Something like the pencil tools option of Tolerances: Fidelity and Smoothness. It sure would help with more precision when I cut and ink my manga characters. Rather than go in after I make a cut and have to move a lot of anchor points and handles around by hand to get the precision I was after in the first place.

    I hope you can understand what I'm texting about here and I hope you take this issue up and include it in a future feature update. Oh yea, and…

  7. Extended guides only in the drawing board

    is it possible to make the ruler guides be limited only to the drawing board? (as already happens in indesign).
    When working with several artboards, having the guides extending horizontally and vertically across the illustrator work area, it often happens that the guides of table 1 also end up on the table 2, 3, 4, 5 , 6 ... the thing is highly uncomfortable, I do not understand the meaning of this thing. I hope it is a useful and unhampered reflection for a future implementation.

  8. Blob brush in touch mode

    I work with a Wacom mobilestudiopro and I really like the touch mode but the blob brush is not accessible in this mode. It will be really helpful if you can add this brush. Thanks a lot

  9. Paint Brush Fidelity

    Old illustrator use to let you change the paint brush fidelity with decimal increments. Now there are just 5 options. Can adobe please just change the slider so we can have more options to choose from? The jumps in fidelity options are just too big and it makes drawing a pain.

  10. Consider End handles

    In illustrator we can to adjust start and end point handles in open path, but it have not much sense. What about to consider this handles to adjust shape of the object fill. Not on strait line like usual, but in way like we want. By the way, if we decide to close the path, Ai should make it in that way too.
    So, we doesn't need two objects with stroke and shape separately, it will be one object with adjustable end handles.

  11. Live integration with Adobe Draw

    I have an Apple iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. I would love to be able to open Adobe Draw and either via a physical cable or wifi connect Draw to Illustrator on my desktop machine and to be able to use the iPad for live sketching in Illustrator.

  12. Use Key Object to allow precise control for in-back and in-front level changes

    Allow Key Object to define which object is moved and which object is used to define movement. If I select two objects and then highlight one as a key object, it would be nice to use the same hotkeys for "send to back" and "send to front" and have it only work in relation to the two selected objects, putting the keyed object either directly in front of or behind in the layer order of the other object.

    As it is now, the hotkeys either work too much by sending objects all they way to the back or front, or…

  13. Anchor points in Illustrator Draw (mobile app)

    The Mobile Adobe Illustrator Draw needs more vector functionality. It'd be great if anchor points could be created and edited within the app.

    I'd also like to see like to see the functionality of the pencil tool in Illustrator, how one can re-trace over the line to edit the path.

    If this functionality was available, I could use a tablet to replace my wacom.

  14. Free transform should function the same as photoshop free transform

    Free transform function in Illustrator is good, but to have another function that acts the same way as Free Transform in Photoshop would be really helpful.

  15. Make it possible to select locked objects?

    I wish it was possible to prevent an object from moving, but still have the ability to select it. A preference setting to "allow selection of locked objects" or "lock position only" or something?

  16. Easier way to do charts and graphs

    PLEASE come up with an EASY and SEAMLESS way to export excel charts into Adobe Illustrator! Please! I have over 153 bar and pie charts I have to create from a pivot table in excel, which is arduous and time consuming. The chart feature in Illustrator is awful and confusing to use as well. I’ve been doing charts the same way for years by copy/pasting from excel into illustrator and having to remove about 10,000 clipping paths. Surely there is something you can that will make it easier to do charts. An extension? Maybe play nice with the @micsrosoft developers?…

  17. Allow users to change default setting for miter limit.

    I frequently use the Object - Path - Offset path tool, and I always have to change the miter limit. I would like to be able to define my own default value so I would not have to change it every time I use the function.

  18. Correct direction of the object rotate function

    When rotating objects in a positive angle direction, objects SHOULD rotate CLOCKWISE
    When rotating objects in a negative angle direction, they SHOULD rotate COUNTER CLOCKWISE

    Illustrator seems to be BACKWARDS from all other programs I have ever used...

  20. flip horizontal and flip vertical from contextual menu

    Please add "flip vertical" and "flip horizontal" to the "Transform..." contextual menu pop-up in Illustrator. We have this function in Animate already. It would improve workflow and is something that should be relatively easy to program. Thank you for all your hard work improving Illustrator.
