  1. Transform by Reference Line Numerically

    I would love to see a "Transform by Reference Line Numerically" feature where user draws a line across an object in any direction, then is able to specify the size they want. This is helpful for raster images where there is no actual vector line to accurately resize to. I use embroidery digitizing software and this is a cool feature. Wilcom Software Transform by Reference Line Numerically.

    I've included a screen shot of the Wilcom Manual to hopefully explain better than i can articulate.

  2. Rotate multiple shapes one time but each ones around its anchor point

    Dear Adobe
    Can we please have the possibility to select many shapes and rotate them all one time but each one be rotated around its anchor point?
    I think it will help us to make great designs quickly.
    Thanks and I hope you take my proposal in consideration

    Hi Nacer,

    Does the menu item Object > Transform > Transform Each… not work for you? You can also choose the reference point on the 9-point reference widget in the dialog.

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

  3. Missing a Modal Pop up

    Dear Adobe...
    If I spend time organizing my art and putting it onto multiple layers and contains HUNDREDS of pieces, when I make a masking layer you take my artwork and smash it all into one layer WITHOUT popping a modal saying this will smash it all into one layer and waste a day of your life having to re-organize it into layers again because a stakeholder requested edits...You failed me. Bad Adobe BAD.

    Please fix this, it's really not cool. When I think of all the hours of my life that you have wasted on things like this over…

  4. Shape properties panel - can't see a way to open it permanently

    When you have a primitive shape selected in the properties panel there are three dots which allow you to edit the shape attributes eg pie angle if it's a circle. I can see no way to have that panel open automatically why is it always hidden behind the three dots button? I'm constantly having to click to open that panel.

  5. Stroke/Fill Color Selections

    I miss being able to just drag a fill color to the stroke box or vice versa. It is tedious to have the extra clicks to get the same results

  9. I have a tablet that is not a Wacom. Wish I could have pressure sensitivity with it. It seems you only support Wacom tablets. : (

  10. Colours in Diagramms adjust to numbers

    It would be cool that if I create a pie chart that I can name a "master colour" and Illustrator autmoatically adjust the colour transperancy in percent. Or if I could say these are my colours, combine them in a smart way so that a bar chart gets a smart gradient
    Thanks guys,
    Fran

  11. Packaging doesn't save library items

    I use my Adobe Library function to save time in placing common graphics into files. However, I notice when I go to package the file to prepare it for the press, it doesn't collect all of the library items, and then turns into an endless loop where the it keeps prompting me to update items in the library. The only workaround for this currently is to grant more people access to my library, which is not best practice, or to go through every link that's on the cloud and resave it into a links folder manually.

  12. Make Object-Path menu a part of Right-Click menu

    Or at least a full part of the Properties palette. It would be a much faster workflow when adding/removing anchor points. Most of those menu items are used often enough to warrant an R-Click placement.

  13. Export Panel and exportting for artboard dont work

    I drag my icon to export panel and select svg. then hit export. A pop up appears only for half a sec and the export is not there. Same thing for exporting for screens; I select the artboard - export as svg and I select that it would make subfolders for me and show it after export. It opens the folder but its empty. This bug appeared after the latest update.I urgently need it to be fixed.

  14. Start drawing (onPenDown) Event option like Photoshop.

    Having an option of drawing with the brush, pencil or blob tool on a (PenDown) Event, like in photoshop. Currently a dot or line, only appears on a penUp or penMove. thus it seems like there is a delay when drawing small shading or detailing lines quickly.
    Any delay for artists can be annoying.

    It would great if Ai had that normal event of traditional drawing on paper. mouseUp and mouseMove is ok for a mouse, but a penDown is needed - i think.

    If there is such an option, let me know. I cant seem to find it, or…

  15. "Effects" in menu when right clicking a selected object similar to InDesign.

    In InDesign I can select an object and then right click on a PC and the menu that appears shows shows "effects." Illustrator should do that as well.

  16. calque non imprimable

    Dans la version cc 2018, un calque non imprimable n'est plus différencié des autres par son non en italique, c'est très gênant et source d'erreur !
    IL serait bien de revenir sur ce petit détail, de grande importance dans les métiers du print. Par avance merci

  17. Change font of a selected text to "Arial" instead of "ArialMT"

    Unless the command for this is hidden from me, I cannot seem to find a solution to this age-old problem.

    Where I work, I need the three following things to be true:
    1) Create an SVG that preserves editing capabilities thereby eliminating the need for more than one file. So, only one SVG file, and not an AI + SVG file.
    2) The fonts within that SVG must not break when displayed in a browser. The infamous "ArialMT" problem.
    3) Must not require a find-and-replace action to correct the font after the export. All actions must be done in Illustrator.

  18. libCC remain path aspect vs PDF like

    When incorporating an object from a library, (but the same behavior occurs if the file is placed) the Object lose all the appeareance and is imported as expanded wth some "clipping path added"

    however, the Appearance information is still in the file because if you ask to edit the original all is fine.

    Could it be possible to add a preference in the "embed" menu to ask if you embed as "Pdf" or as "AICB" the same dialog you can have in Saving Clipboard Prefs ?

    This could be really valuable.

    Thanks

    Hi Jean-Michel,

    Press the Option key while dropping graphics from CC Library to artboard in Illustrator to bring the ‘original’ AI content. This will directly embed the graphic. Without the Option key it places the graphic, and all AI files get placed as PDF, hence the issues.

    Does the Option key work for you?

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

  19. stop Live corners assumptions

    When drawing with the curvature, I haven't tested with regular pen, if you draw a mix of corners and somewhat curved surfaces, then you go back to add some nice radiused corners, you will likely be annoyed by illustrator Thinking that you intended to draw a giant chamfer.

    No, I didn't draw a large chamfer. Do not assume I drew a large chamfer. Assuming a radius when illustrator sees a tangent arc connecting two lines is Great. But with chamfer there's nothing to be tangent to. So just because I drew two sharp corners in a row, before two curved…

    This should not be happening. Seems like a bug. The corner should not become a chamfer unless you do an Option-click on the live corner widget. Could you please share more details on when this happens?

    Thanks,
    Yogesh
