  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Swatches panel / fill color

    Easier way to select color and fill in color is needed! Having to select on the color tool every time and then from there select the eye dropper tool every time you need to change a color is way to much work. Make the swatch panel always visible on screen. There should be a shortcut or something where you can hold down to fill with selected color or a live paint bucket tool. Also, making a color palette in swatches and being able to save it so you can use it in other files.

  4. 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.

  6. 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

  7. “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.

  8. Customize my own workspace

    I would like to edit my workspace. I would rather have the columns with symbols both on one side, instead of on each side.

  9. 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.

  10. Grey system layout

    The grey system layout is much easier on the eyes than the old style white cs3 look.

    Please give us the option to change this
