  1. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  9. I hope to add the drawing mode to the iPadAI.

    这里少了可以在图形里面绘图的功能,还有实时上色的功能也很需要,希望开发者能够仔细看看,非常重要,感谢
    The function of drawing in graphics is missing, and the function of real-time coloring is also very needed. I hope the developer can take a closer look. It is very important. Thank you.

  10. Rotate bounding box only

    The bounding box is forever fixed now, and we can’t reset it, the way it is possible in the desktop (and there is a separate request for that: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/931888-illustrator-ipad-feature-requests/suggestions/42167054-reset-bounding-box).
    But it would be better to make it better— by giving a mode to freely rotate the bounding box the way we need, to zero or another angle.
    One more button in the context panel, or a toggle we can get when hold the rotation handle (to display the rotation center) — either way will do.

  12. 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. Pencil Doppeltippen „Rückgängig“

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

  15. Rotate tool

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

  17. 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.

  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

  20. Greater control over direction handles

    There doesn’t seem to be a functionality for using direction handles to modify sharp angles on a line. This would be very helpful for limiting how many points it takes to draw certain shapes!
