  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.

  5. 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

  7. 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

  8. Knife / Slice & Scissor tools

    Available under the “erase” tool just as they are on the desktop. Or make a shortcut key to erase in straight lines, currently there isn’t an easy way to break paths.

  10. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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

  14. Restore anchor point long hold to delete anchor points.

    Previously, when performing a long press with the direct select tool on an anchor point, it would delete that anchor point. Using the "delete anchor point" button on the floating menu is now the only option, but the long press method is just simpler and saves a lot of effort. A nice way to restore this option is to have it as a feature that you can turn on/off in prefrences.

  15. 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.

  16. Width tool and Free Transform Tool

    It's super painful to jump on the desktop version every single time, just for small corrections.

  17. Measure length of paths

    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!

  20. 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?
