  1. Make it usable on ipad - Draw is extremely inferior

    Adobe Draw is an inferior product to Illustrator. The promise of creating vector art and moving it to Illustrator only works about half the time and you do not have the ability to interact (select manipulate etc) individual objects. I am sure that it is complicated to make a desktop software work on an ipad but honestly, I am a bit confused as to why this does not exist. My computer has way less space than my ipad pro. It also allows me to plug a tablet in and use a stylus throughout illustrator to do whatever I want. I…

  2. Please bring the basic brush back.

    Please can you bring back basic brush where I can draw from the scratch without using the rounded paint brush? I used to to be able to do that.

  10. Selection tool and undo

    Selection tool does not work properly. It selects the total anchor points of an object, however it does not behave as the Direct Selection Tool, it only allows to move the object. It does not allow to resize. a single or multiple objects selected.

    Doing undo (cmd + z) Illustrator often deletes more than one step and resets the document close to its original/previously saved version.

    Illustrator version: 23.0.3
    OS: Mac OS Mojave 10.14.4

  12. fill not aligned with path

    Paths not aligned to fill or actual graphic on Illustrator 23.0.3 (CC 2019).

    Not sure when it happens or how but it will randomly not move the fill with the path lines. Changing the colour or selecting some edges of the path will make it bounce to the correct position.

    The file will print with the fill moved.

    Once it is corrected it you can't undo problem without reopening the file that is saved like this.

    My best guess and only thing I have noticed different about this paths that are wrong is it has a overprint fill turned on.…

  13. Selection tool automatically nudging object when clicked.

    When (v) or (a) are used and a vector line or object are clicked on with the mouse, the object automatically jumps/nudges right. Multiple clicks produces multiple jumps/nudges.
    The problem will stop for a period of time after reboot but begins again.

  15. Draw inside Tool (Shift + D)

    I was trying to use the Draw Inside Tool with the curvature Pen. If I use First the curvature pen to draw inside, it just draws behind the object not inside. if I use first the Pen tool and draw inside and afterwards I use the curvature pen tool it works. This was tested multiple times and the issue is the exact same every single time.

  18. "Apply gradient across stroke" shows terrible banding compared to a standard linear gradient

    When applying a gradient to a stroke with the "apply gradient across stroke" option selected, the resulting gradient is very poor quality, with lots of visible banding.

    In the attached image the top gradient is formed by feathering a rectangle with corner radius of 31.235 px by 20px. The quality is fine, although feathering makes specifying specific colours a hassle.

    The middle object is the same rectangle with a 40pt stroke, with a white-to-black gradient applied with "apply gradient across stroke" selected. The gradient is very uneven, showing clear banding.

    The bottom is a the same linear gradient applied as…

  19. Return feature constraint proportion while holding shift;

    I often wish Adobe employes used Illustrator themselves. I'd like them to experience having their preferences reset to default with even minor upgrades, spending an hour adjusting the shortcut keys to work like a mac, and now that I've had a chance to vent a little, the latest offense:

    The ability to proportionally scale objects by holding shift while dragging is ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL to my workflow mixing photos and raster art into an illustration to the point I'm using Sketch more and more while wondering how this bug got out and I hope a fix is on the way soon.
