  1. Recent change to transform function is anti-intuitive.

    I have used Illustrator since version 1.11 and the shift key has always been used to constrain angles and proportion in drawing and transforming. suddenly without notice in the latest upgrade the shift key has to be used to FREE transform and the default in the transform function is to maintain proportion or constrain movement to 45 or 90 degrees. This is against the habits of 30 years use. I have also noticed that in the Option>scale function the highlight which used to default to the angle value no longer does so requiring addition keystroking. Not helpful.

  3. Make Adobe Illustrator app available in Thai

    Please make Adobe Illustrator app available in Thai. I think it will be better for Thai users to be able to use Adobe Illustrator app in Thai language.

  4. WHY ARE YOUR COLOR MODE SETTINGS SEPARATE BUT CALLED THE SAME?

    SO YEAH, THERE IS A SEPARATE COLOR MODE IN THE DOCUMENT COLOR MODE.....SEPARATE AND DIFFERENT FROM THE COLOR MODE IN THE COLOR WINDOW.

    WHAT PURPOSE THIS DESIGN CHOICE WOULD SERVE, IS BEYOND ME.

    WHAT DOES THAT ACTUALLY DO? WHY WHY WHY WOULD ADOBE MAKE IT SO CHANGING YOUR DOCUMENT COLOR MODE IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FUNCTION THEN CHANGING THE COLOR MODE IN THE "COLOR," WINDOW? WHAT PURPOSE DOES THAT SERVE? WHY DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? IT JUST MAKES ME WANT TO TEAR MY EARS OFF AND POKE MY OWN EYES OUT.

    CAN SOMEONE PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.....FOR THE…

    I've been in contact with your support team and he told me it is currently impossible.

    Thanks,

  6. Table creation tools similar to what's available in inDesign

    Both InDesign and Powerpoint have simple table builders that are very easy to use and modify. In Illustrator any text table you create has to be made and modified manually, which is very time-consuming and difficult to maintain look and feel over several different documents.

  7. automatic update of chart data

    Update charts as source data changes or is amended. In the case of Excel the link would replicate how InDesign does it, but additionally allow the import of a range that is too big - empty cells are ignored. This would allow for appended data, in the case of a time series.

  9. Please, please renew the diagram tool in illustrator

    Please, update and renew the diagram toll in illustrator. The tool isn't state of the art and needs renewing (preview function, better handling with numbers, more options, less bugs). I make infographics for many years and also teach infographic design, but the possibilities in Illustrator are unfortunately insufficient.
    Many users are waiting and waiting for an update. It would be a great help to designers if the diagram tool could be renewed. Illustrator is a great application, but the diagram functions are not good.
    Thank you very much
    Daniel Röttele

  11. シンボル編集モードでのレイヤーオプションの保存がされない

    シンボルを作成後、配置されたシンボルをダブルクリックしてシンボル編集モードにし、レイヤーオプションのカラー(パスを選択したときに表示される色)を変更する。
    シンボル編集モードを一旦終了し、再度編集モードに入ると、変更状態が保存されていない。
    シンボル編集時にパスの選択時のカラーが見にくい場合、編集モードに入るたびにカラーを編集しなければいけない。

  14. Collapse unfolded actions/windows

    Shortcut for "collapse option" on the floating windows.
    Normally you have to close/collapse by hand, and when you are working and you need to clear your working are you have to collapse by hand each window.

    Would be great having a quick access to collapse/open the actions/tools windows.

    Maybe using keyboard arrows?

  18. It would be helpful if you had the option to cancel a quit.

    It would be helpful to have a cancel button for when you quit the program. I constantly hit Command Q instead of Command W and I have no option to save my work before it quits. All I can do is clear the clipboard.

  19. Let an application be associated with its files

    Let an Application take control of its files at button press. After latest update Acrobat took over for AI files and it'd be nice to just press a button and fix it in Windows 10.

    Currently manually trying to and Acrobat is fighting it.

  20. Transparent PNG linked into AI drawing

    I've exported transparent PNG's from Photoshop, and I'm trying to work on an Illustrator drawing with them, so I can eventually put them into my InDesign doc. So, I link in a PNG to Illustrator and it decides to read it as though it has a white background. So, naturally, I don't realize this because I'm working on a white artboard until I get into InDesign and the art is blocking the master, leaving me to go back into all my illustrator files to replace a linked file with imbedded artwork. What's the point of linking a file if it…
