  1. Make Desktop and iPad versions look the same

    It would be a lot easier if both versions of Illustrator (desktop and iPad) looked the same, especially for new learners.

  2. Make ESC Key = CMD + Return

    There is not a physical Escape (ESC) key on the iPad Pro Magic Keyboard.
    On PC, I’m used to hitting CTRL+Enter to exit an active text object.

    Could we please make CMD+Return on the iPad exit an active text field?
    Currently that Keyboard Shortcut is ESC. Which doesn’t exist. And the Apple version CMD+. Doesn’t work either. CMD+Return would be the most familiar and fluid option.

  3. Morph iPad Cursor

    We need the cursor on iPad to morph into a more fine shape in some instances, like over anchor points, curve points, and even transform boxes. It’s currently difficult to precisely manipulate some objects with the oversized circle cursor. This would improve trackpad or mouse input greatly.

  4. Save Confirmation

    I have problem when i accidentally touch the back button, the canvas is automatically saved at the current progress, when we access the canvas again, changed progress we did before cannot be undo. My suggestion please make save confirmation, so we can cancel the back action when we accidentally press it, just like desktop version of AI. Thank you

  5. Illustrator for iPad - allow me to move common actions bar.

    I’m going through one of the tutorials and I can’t rotate an object because the common actions bar is blocking the rotation node and there is no way for me to move it out of the way.

  6. 'remember last stroke' and 'new art has basic appearance'

    Adobe you really should and need to bring some of the finer settings across from the desktop if you are serious about these being PRODUCTIVE tools and not just permanent pre-release beta tests rented under the subscription narrative.

    No-one wants to move BACKWARDS either feature OR PRODUCTIVE-wise.

    Desktop Illustrator has a SIMPLE setting to either REMEMBER the last selected stroke setting OR allows for 'new art has basic appearance' which could easily be implemented on the ipad version with a check-box in a preference setting.

    Without this simple setting my productivity is completely broken and now far more convoluted requiring…

  7. The app settings button is a button within a button. Fix it.

    So theres an issue with the app settings button in the navigation bar. Its the gear icon button. It is a button within a button. This is called bad design and we need to fix it. Its bad design because I have to click a button to get to the app settings and then I have to click another button to get to the app settings when the first button should have gotten me to the app settings but it didn’t.

    If I click on the gear icon, which is my app settings button, I am given a pop up…

  8. Move the undo button from near split screen button

    Move the undo and redo buttons when holding the iPad in portrait mode. Currently on the iPad mini (2021) the split screen 3 dots are overlapping the undo button. Which means I either have to turn my iPad to landscape or use the Apple Pencil and be very precise to click the left most part of the undo button in order for it to undo

  9. Hiding Properties Panel

    When I’m working with text with the Properties panel open, and then make the text live to edit - the Properties panel hides automatically. So, if I’m trying to select letters or words specifically to edit, I have to reopen the Properties panel. It of course reappears after closing the live text edit. I think I’d like the panel to stay up, or perhaps reappear after making a single letter or word selection.

  10. Turn Off Undo/Redo Buttons

    I need a setting in the app settings that will allow users to turn off the undo and redo buttons at the top of the UI where the navigation bar is located. I dont need to see them. Theyre distracting. I use my 2 fingers and 3 finger gesture to undo/redo, so I have no use in seeing them up there. Im not going to use them. Im using my gestures instead. Please allow users to turn them off in the app settings. This is an easy fix. This should be in the next update.

  11. The Zoom Indicator should not be in decimals

    I dont know whats going on but the zoom indicator at the top of the UI that displays the zoom percentage should not be in decimals. I dont know why its like that. Nobody works that way. Nobody says, " Oh, i need to be zoomed in at 156.73%." Nobody says that. Just make it 156% or 157%. Dont add decimals. Remove them. This is an easy fix. This is not a feature request. This is a design issue. Please fix it.

  12. Linguagem em Português

    Vocês poderiam adicionar no aplicativo para o iPad a linguagem em português, para facilitar para os brasileiros também a utilizar, amo todas plataforma de vocês, mas isso é algo fundamental, ter opção de linguagem não só em português mas em outras línguas para o aplicativo do iPad.

  13. Processor usage indicator

    I often struggle with not knowing if nothing is happening because what I am trying to do is not supported, or if nothing is happening because the M 1 processor is just busy doing the calculations needed to execute my command.
    As illustrator is rather processor consuming, it is often the latter, but I never know for sure until waiting time is over, or until I have given up hope and jumped to some other function. Some kind of “the iPad processor is busy calculating your request, please hold”-indicator would be extremely helpful thank you.

  14. フレスコのようにタッチショートカットを固定(長押ししなくてもいい)できるようにしてほしい

    フレスコのようにタッチショートカットがタッチごとに切り替わって固定できるようにしてほしい。
    片腕しか使えないから、ペンを持ってると長押ししながらペンで描画とか不可能だから、ほぼ使えない機能なのが悲しい。
    切実に追加してほしい。

  15. Add a quick show/hide button to reveal tool tip labels

    Unlike desktop/Wacom styluses, the apple pencil has no hover state which makes it hard to know what tool does what. Would be very useful to have a quick show/hide button to quickly see hovering tool tips for each tool option in lieu of having a hover capability. Example UI attached.

  18. “Jump to…”

    Tap (finger or pencil) UNDO or REDO banner/notification to jump to the undo/redo area. I.e. I want to see what I undo/redo when I have accidentally jumped art boards.

    Without the screen real estate of a desktop or laptop, it can be easy to get lost in a smaller and easily rescalable (i.e. “quick pinch gesture” to jump to art board) workspace.
