  1. Envelope, Warp, and mesh distort tools

    Same as on the full version, something that’s definitely missing from the iPad version.

  2. Pencil tool options - like on desktop illustrator

    Would be lovely to have more control of the pencil tool. I simply tried doing my signature and it was getting all distorted because the points were connecting wherever they pleased... impossible getting line right when working on smaller details. Pencil Tool would be extremely helpful to have for future work. Thank you kindly.

  3. control for number of points on a star

    The star tool doesn't have the ability to change the number of points like the polygon tool does. if you could add your star and then add multiple points and adjust the "pointyness" like the desktop app that would be good

  6. Gradient Mesh

    Once after you add the necessary basic tools I would like to see that included,because it will be a big difference maker with your competitor affinity + it’s the reason why I want to use illustrator on my iPad and not buy a new PC

  7. Enable transform tool to move elements by a specific measurement

    I am a pattern designer and it would be so helpful if the Properties panel, you could type in a measurement into the transform tool, to make your elements move a specific amount that you designate. For example if I have an element on the left of my screen and I want to duplicate it and move it to the right to make a repeating pattern — let’s say I’m using an 8” screen size — it would be wonderful to add to the x or y numbers +8” or +4”, etc.

    This would be a great feature for surface…

  8. Shape builder tool on illustrator for iPad

    I really miss the shape builder tool on my illustrator for iPad. That is the most used tool on my desktop version of illustrator. Please bring it into iPad version too.

  9. Skew/transform effects (iPad)

    Distort effects such as skew, warp, blend

    I needed to use a warp/skew function on type on iPad but didn’t have a pc handy in time to do it however it would be a great feature to have on iPad and I wouldn’t imagine it would be incredibly hard to add.

  10. Smooth tool like the desktop version

    On the desktop version they have a smooth tool where you can target specific lines and shapes. I use this tool constantly and was disappointed to not find it on the app version. It’s the major missing feature keeping me from using the app more often

  11. Allow pencil to retrace a shape instead of creating a new one

    Right now when I want to edit a shape I've drawn w/ the pencil tool I have to use the anchor edit tool. Can you make it so I can just retrace the shape in a certain area by drawing over an anchor point similar to how it is in the desktop application?

  12. Adobe illustrator for iPad Pro Vector Line editing

    The Ipad version off illustrator, really needs a way to edit vector lines after they have been drawn. I mean I don't think it's only me that sees line editing as one of the main reasons why I draw with vectors.

    Ipad should just as Vectornator be able to edit drawn vector lines and to smooth drawn vector lines, otherwise I may just draw with procreate..

    Same thing with adobe fresco vector lines.

    If those features would be added the program would be off great use.

  13. iOS Illustrator has no Apple Pencil specific features

    I find the Creative Cloud apps on my Apple iPad Pro do not proper take advantage of the Apple Pencil. Other apps can distinguish between Pencil input and finger inputs to provide better and more intuitive drawing. There are finger-Pencil combinations, finger vs Pencil input choices, and so on. For example, one of the more useful options I have seen in other drawing apps are the Pencil as the normal brush while the single finger is used for smudging or erasing. Adobe should adopt something like this. Optimally, a separate selection for each Pencil and finger inputs. Additional actions could…

  15. Need to add the Area Type Tool

    I’d love to have the area type tool and other type functions from the desktop version added to the iPads version. I do a lot of work with a placed photo and type that flows around it. On the iPad I have to make multiple text containers instead of a vector shape for the text to flow within.

  17. Colour Picker Gesture like in Procreate

    Please make a Colour Picker Finger Gesture like in Procreate! At the moment its way too hard and fiddly to pick colours from the artboard.

    1. Press and hold down with your finger where you want to pull the color from.
    2. You'll see a circle take on your color.
    3. Wait for the color to appear in the color selection tool in the top-right corner of the screen.
    4. You now have access to the selected color.

  18. Spiral Tool Preview Checkbox

    Outside of using the default values for the Spiral tool, it's always been difficult to get real precision with respect to altering the decay while dragging and holding CMD / CNTRL. It would be super flexible if the tool had a Preview check box. Turning it on would generate a wireframe of the shape with the default values. Then we could try different settings to get the shape we want and then click Ok to produce the shape.

  19. Measure length of lines

    I use Illustrator for landscape design. Using IPad for real-time designing in the field would really be an improvement. It would really be helpful to have a measurement tool or to see the length in the properties tab. The properties tab now only shows W, H, X, Y. Showing the length of a line would help!
