  1. 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.

  2. Pencil tool redraw paths

    Please make it possible to redraw paths with the pencil tool like in the desktop app. It seems like an essential function for the iPad app to make this possible using your Apple Pencil. It was the first thing I wanted to do with the iPad App was import my Illustrator document and redraw the paths with the Apple Pencil but I was shocked to find it can’t do that and people have been asking for that function since 2020. Otherwise it’s completely useless to me as an illustrator

  3. 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. 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.)

  7. Envelope, Warp, and mesh distort tools

    Same as on the full version, something that’s definitely missing from the iPad version.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Scale with percentage

    Make it possible to scale an object via a percentage input box.
    For example:

  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

  15. Pencil Doppeltippen „Rückgängig“

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

  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. 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. 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…
