  2. Converting CAD into Illustrator

    Where I work, we often have to open CAD files into the Illustrator program. We would like to be able to use the existing lines that are presented in a CAD drawing, but when we open them, they are always in little "line segments," rather than full, complete Illustrator lines.

    The issue with this is that it slows down the computer, and we are ultimately unable to use the CAD file. Nothing converts into actual "shapes" that we can use, so we end up flattening the image and having to draw over it from scratch to get the image we…

  3. add point in simplify panel -click art with panel open

    with the object / path / simplify feature, it seems like the ability to quickly add a point to the outline by clicking on the artwork, while the panel is open for refinement. the feature in there 'show original outline' combined with this new recommendation would be a very intuitive way to refine a shape.

  4. I hope CS5.6 sale

    私はCS3使用時の機能要望をいくつか取り入れて戴いたCS5.5ユーザーです。
    CCは経済的負担が大きいので使っていません。
    Win10にCS5.5を入れましたが、特に問題なく使えています。
    CCになってからデザイン業界を除く個人ユーザーが更新しなくなり、
    古いバージョンのまま使っているユーザーが多いのは認識されているはずです。
    画面デザイン的に繫がりがあるのがCS5.5までで、
    CS6からは大きく変更になりました。
    OSが実質Win10だけになり、動作環境の面でバージョンアップを迫られているユーザーが多いはずですが、
    それでもCCは無理と考える人が大多数です。
    バージョンアップしたいユーザーが受け入れやすいCS5.5をベースに、
    パッケージ(売り切り)版を再販して貰えば、需要がある事は明らかです。
    ここで、最低2つの機能改善を行い、CS5.6としてリリースしてはどうでしょう。
    機能改善は、
    1.描画編集中などにナビゲーター画面が逐一全画面更新され、データが重いとスマートガイドやコピー&ペーストなどのキー動作が不安定になる。長い文字の入力編集中は特に酷い。これを極端な話、ナビゲータ画面に付けた「更新」ボタンを押すまで画面更新しなくていいようにする。
    2.現状、文字の縁取りが文字の塗りの上になっているが、文字の塗りの下に設定できるようにする。これで一々「文字を全てコピー」「背面ペースト」「縁取り設定」をやらずに済む事になり、データが軽くなり、修正も楽になる。なぜ今までこれが出来ないのか不思議と思える基本的な機能です。

  5. Implement adaptively-sampled distance field (ADF) technology for 2D drawing

    Please incorporate adaptively-sampled distance field (ADF) technology into illustrator's drawing tools. Adobe already licenses this technology for use in fonts, and Mischief the only 2D drawing software that incorporated the technology has been discontinued.

  6. Smart Object like in Photoshop

    Smart object for illustrator will be a nice feature. Also it will be awesome if both photoshop and illustrator can work with smart object. Currently, photoshop can handle (automatically convert files to smart object when placed, imported, copied in photoshop) vector/raster objects copied from illustrator document. But for some reason, illustrator doesn't have that feature. Would love to see smart objects/group in illustrator.

    Thank you Adobe.

  8. Fit art/object to selected art/object

    Just like you're able to fit the artboard to selected art. Is there a way to fit/scale an object/art to another object? Just scaling the first object to the second one, rather having to do it manually through transform or scale.

  10. Layer name suffix when pasting in XD (behaviour changed in 2020)


    1. Description:

    When I copy and paste vectors from Illustrator 2020 to Adobe XD, suffix "1" is being added to each later.

    This doesn't happen when I copy from Illustrator 2019 so I assume this have benn changed in Illustrator 2020, not XD.


    1. Why is this valuable to you?

    I create all my icons in Illustrator but keep them in huge XD file so that devs can easily get them as SVGs.

    With this additional suffix, my workflow is slower as I have to remove them each time I add new icon to XD file.

  14. make one layer from more layers like in photoshop

    Hello, I would really like it if different layers could be used to create one layer, just like in photoshop.
    (so if you work with a lot of layers, and you repeat the design on the same page, or want to create a pattern, this doesn't work)
    I very much hope that this will be possible in the future

  17. File Management

    Hi, it would be a great feature in Illustrator if you could see at a glance where the illustrator file is linked eg Indesign or Framemaker.

    This would help massively and save considerable time when updating files that use the same linked Illustrator file.

    Thank you

  19. Fix Image Trace, Please

    Why is "Limited" Color Palette restricted to 30 colors? I often need a few hundred but not as many as Automatic gives. And Automatic would be great if the Color Slider actually worked proportionally but it randomly goes from over 1000 colors to less than 30 or some unsatisfying number, not the smooth curve one would expect. Therefore I have to use the superior Live Trace feature on my old Mac with CS on it. Either lift the restriction on Limited or make Automatic perform according to the slider.

  20. Draw selection

    I work with pixel art. When I select I need to click on every single pixel to change color, if it's not simple shapes like a rectangle that I can marquee and select. If I draw, I just drag the pixels around accidentally. I would like to draw a selection with a brush (any brush I like), and that whatever is covered beneath what I draw by the brush gets selected. And it shall be in a mode that no pixels or objects or anything is dragged around.

    Why it's valuable? It would be a huge timesaver, and keep me…
