  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Background removal Tool

    One Reason I keep my Canva subscription is because they offer a background removal tool for photos. Sometimes when I am designing on my iPad I need to perform a background removal. Canva has an amazing tool for this. If Adobe offered an equally effective background removal tool for photos in illustrator for iPad it would make my life easier and would render Canva unnessisary.

  6. Rotate and scale selected anchor points

    I miss the opportunity to rotate and scale a bunch of selected anchor points in a Vector path like I can do in the Desktop Version.

  8. Long press delay to delete point is too short

    When using the direct selection or pen tool to move points the point is deleted too soon if the apple pencil is used to select it. Long press is supposed to delete the point but this happens if you hold the pencil on the point for a very short time. Please add a longer delay or even better allow the user to set the delay in preferences.

  9. 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…

  10. Erase up to intersection (Paths)

    Illustrator on Ipad and the normal one really needs a tool to erase to intersection, like for example Clip studio has. It has a few workarounds, but this should just be a feature, not something to work around.

    Erase up to intersection should be a simple tool/or a feature you can activate on the normal eraser, so you can just touch the lines you want to cut and they will be erased up to the closest path it connects too.

  11. Reference Points for transformations.

    Please can we have Reference Points in the Transform tool section like in desktop illustrator?

    They offer much greater control and repeatability in comparison to black box tools like “Distribute”.

    Thanks

  13. 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.)

  14. Hand tool and scrolling with the mouse, horizontal scrolling as well (like a computer)

    The shortcut H does not work on the ipad pro to access the hand tool, while this is the case on a computer. Scrolling up and sideways is also very important for my workflow. This is important for me to be able to pan around as I am using my iPad Pro as a laptop replacement.

  17. Pencil Doppeltippen „Rückgängig“

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

  18. Rotate tool

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

  20. 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.
