  2. warp linked

    Please add the ability to warp linked files without having to embed them first. Basically, turn them into the equivalent of smart objects in photoshop.

  3. 3d extrude and bevel problem

    Ilustrator says it does not have enough Ram for Extrude and bevel when there is enough ram. Can you stop illustrator from doing this

  5. Ability to create object clones

    This idea is inspired in mograph features of Cinema4D.
    It would be great to have an instance (or clone) of an object so that when you alter the shape of the source object, the clone alters automatically.

    This would also be a powerful simmetry tool as well but much more flexible since you can position the clone wherever you want.
    You would be able to clone it several times in a grid and alter all clones by fixing one single object (similar to what can today be achieved with Transform menu, but with much much more flexibility and control).

    It…

  6. Transforming 3D effects

    For 3D effects such as 'Extrude and Bevel', 'Revolve' and 'Rotate', transformation behaviour is incomplete. For instance:

    Scale Strokes and Effects doesn't cause the extrude depth to scale.

    Flipping the object only flips the path and not the 3D effect.

    Both these things should transform as expected...

  7. Unable to Make sunbeams in Illustrator.

    In Pixelmator for Mac, in generators, I can create a sun beam. I need this for a project I am working on for a client for there business logo but do to its design I can make it into vector. so I need to be able to create it from scratch in illustrator but it lacks the ability to, see recording attached or link. I need "exactly" what you see as vector no lame alternatives, unless you can do better.

  8. Opacity and tint/shade options for Transform effect

    In EFFECT < DISTORT & TRANSFORM < TRANSFORM, it would be really great if you could have a way to fade out the shape's opacity when making copies. Other options, such as fading it to specified tint or shade, would be really great as well. You can approximate this in the blend function, but it cannot generate the fractal-like structures that the transform effect can, so it would be nice to further the artist's capacity to manipulate a single shape.

  10. 3D effects should include "back to 2D"

    Roaming around the interface I fell on the 3D effects window and was wowed by all the possibilities. Then when I wanted to get back to work on my 2D object, I couldn't find how to do it. I expect something like the "no stroke" button in the stroke selection, in the top left position of the list of 3D effects. I clicked Ctrl-Z multiple times to get back, but it was really slow.

    Declined  ·  Yogesh Sharma responded

    Hi Francis,

    You can remove the 3D effect from your art from Appearance Panel. Just select the row for the effect in Appearance panel, hit the delete button at the bottom bar of the panel.

  11. Blur Below Transparent Object

    Having the ability to create a frosted glass effect by being able to blur below a transparent object dynamically. Therefore if we move the transparent object, it will blur anything below itself automatically.
