  1. appearance fill shape options rectangle - set percentage also (instead of points)

    Hi! In Appearance fill "shape options" where one can set background rectangle. It would be good if you could set percentage values and not only points. Because it limits the use. Then the look depend on how big your artwork is. It is a difference to have 10 point margin to a square 100 point rectangle compared to 1000 point rectangle. So please add that possibility. Thanks!

  3. Angle of control handles and selected anchor points in Info panel?

    For creating smooth transitions from a bezier curve to a straight line, it would be very useful to get information on the angle of the tangents.
    In general - it would be nice when the Info box displays the angle of the line between two selected points.

  4. User folder for custom brushes and graphic styles

    It would be great if there were a way to quickly save a selected custom brush and/or graphic style to a single user folder. This would make access easier, and enable better organization.

  5. Copy and Paste mesh points into a mesh replacing selected points

    I have to make changes to a series or envelope meshes the top section is the same and the bit I need to change so it would be nice to copy the points from one mesh into another by just overlaying the meshes and transferring the points from one to the other

  6. Opening Last opened/recent documents

    Problems opening Last opened/recent documents in Adobe Illustrator

    I teach Adobe Illustrator to around 60 16 year olds.
    When they first open the program & either double click on the image of their last document it often won't open. In fact it often opens another recent file, but not the one they actually have clicked on. The only way round I have found to get up their work is to >window & turn Application Frame off? This is far from ideal & I don't understand why it's suddenly started happening......
    As you can imagine the 16 year olds find this…

  8. Illustrator CC 2019 (oct) NOT as default program for file extension .doc

    Just upgraded to Creative Cloud 4.7.0.400, from 24.09.2018 on Windows 8.

    Weirdly my E-Mail client suddenly opens .doc-files in Illustrator CC. I checked Windows 8's default program setting for file extension .doc ... it's still set to "Word". The E-Mail client (Opera Mail) is pretty slim and itself has no way of setting file extension behaviours - it's depending on the systems settings.

    The Bridge's file extension dialog in Bridge settings does not list .DOC files, so it's not set to illustrator there either.

    However if i go into windows file extension settings again, highlight .doc and click "edit program"…

  9. Background when making pattern

    When I make a pattern and choose "size tile to art" and have a negative spacing, then it's not possible to have a background in the pattern, because then it clips the artwork. I haven't found a way to get passed this so it would be great if background was somehow in it's own layer beneath, so that it didn't clip the artwork.

  10. 2018 Illustrator CC is crazy slow / extreme lag on fast touchbar mac

    AI is extraordinarily slow to do anytlhing, even select tools, or draw or duplicate objects. I have a very fast computer:
    2016 MBP 2.9ghz intel core i7
    16gb ram
    radeon pro 460
    running OS 10.13.6
    I have 60gbb free of space on my SSD.

    I haven't worked in AI for several years, but I'm deeply familiar with PS, and I'm following a tutorial on how to draw a geometric shape. So thats what I'm doing in the project. Very simple stuff.

    ADOBE!! I have a request. Would you consider creating a T-shirt making app for Illustrator? It would be great to be able to design your layout, take a look at your sample, then send to a printer to print! It's a thought 😀

  15. Instrument to to make objects equal size

    For example I have 20 logos and I want to select them all and set width to 30 px. Hight schould be scaled proportional. The "Transform each" command does not allow to specify a size. So I have to type 20 times the required values for each object.

  17. Illustrator CC Desktop App need the Photoshop CC Desktop App feature that 3D Workspace, sketch and painting with 3D Layers in 3D Mode.

    I think that the 3D Workspace, sketch and drawing (in Illustrator CC Desktop App) with 3D Layers in 3D Mode is the modern 2D creative design App must-have feature today. The Photoshop CC Desktop App feature is being used by more and more designers in 2D creative design, look! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZydZ72iUKDQ

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
