  2. double tap the apple pencil to go back one step

    For example, if you have made a mistake in what you are doing. That will be ideal if it can also be done with the pencil. (instead of tapping the screen with two fingers to go back one step.)

  3. 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.

  7. Pencil Doppeltippen „Rückgängig“

    Es wäre toll, wenn ich auf dem iPad durch Doppeltippen des Apple Pen 2 den zuletzt gesetzten Strich rückgängig machen könnte.

  8. Move the undo button in split screen

    During landscape split screen session the undo button lines up directly with the 3 dots for split screen options making it difficult to use the functions.

  9. Rotate tool

    Being able to rotate a shape or object on a specified area would be very useful. Because the radial has its limits.

  10. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Selection marquee should be able to be displayed orthogonally when a view is rotated

    When dragging out a selection marquee on a rotated canvas with either of the Selection tools, the marquee is drawn aligned to the canvas instead of the screen.

    The actual selection seems to be done in screen space - see the two attached screenshots, where my marquee was dragged from the lower left point of the marquee to the upper right, resulting in a displayed marquee that would select the sketch of hair above the eye, and an actual selection that only contains parts of the paths in the eye.

    The expected behavior would be that the marquee was drawn…

  16. Enable transform tool to move elements by a specific measurement (Move Dialog)

    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…

  17. 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

  18. Shape tool that allows multipoint star tool and multi side polygons

    It would be helpful to have the ability to change the number of points on a star or a polygon like we can on the desktop version.

  19. To be able to create a new path off another path when using the pen tool like you can on pc

    I normally link paths up while doing my art, expand and then use live paint mode on my Mac but can’t on the iPad. Would be awesome to be able to do this ! Example below to hopefully help this make sense
