  1. Drag and Drop Artboard Copy

    In desktop, I can Alt and Drag a copy of an Artboard. Currently, it seems in iPad I can only use the Duplicate button. This gets annoying. I want to be able to drag a copy of an Artboard to whatever location I want. Auto placement is nice, but it creates more steps in the workflow. I.e. Duplicate - Locate - Move. Whereas if I could drag a copy of an Artboard, I can move it up, down, left, right, diagonal, I always know where it is, and once it’s placed I don’t have to do anything else.

  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. Create a share link with a locally saved file

    Currently you have to save your file to the cloud to share a link. Just like XD I would like to save my files locally and use the feature to share a link for reviews.

  4. 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

  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. Initial View : File Organization Sucks.

    I want to have folders to tidy up my documents. I created the folders but I have to laboriously go through each document, press down on it, careful not to open it, then drag drag drag it up to the appropriate folder and drop it in. I did this a bunch of times only to find it had somehow moved everything into a nested folder I had, further messing up my document organization structure, yay.

    Suggestions: provide basic file organization tools like in any app: a Select tool where I can choose a random selection of thumbnails via checkboxes, and…

  11. Manual sync with CC

    Syncing saved files over from Illustrator Desktop to Illustrator for iPad takes forever (hours, or sometimes even days) while the app says no sync errors. It'd be great to be able to manually sync with CC!

  12. Change or leave dpi/ppi the same as document.

    Created the document with 300 dpi but exports as 72dpi. This doesn’t even make since. At minimum, you should be able to select your ppi/dpi when you export your file. You would think it would export the same as your original document

  13. Print-ready pdf export with bleeds

    Please add the ability to export print-ready PDFs with trim marks and bleeds in Illustrator for iPad. That would be perfect for my workflow!

  14. 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.

  15. Allow to import and export EPS files into Illustrator on iPad

    Allow to import .eps files into illustrator as editable vectors, similar like the desktop version. Would make editing ready / bought .eps files on the app possible and get so much done in a shorter amount of time. Please have this feature.

  16. Pan and Rotate with trackpad

    Need Zoom, Plus Pan & Rotate with trackpad and Magic Keyboard like how it works on Mac/PC. This would make things even more awesome. It would be even better if you guys do a custom cursor icon like on the desktop as well or like how Vectornator does it with the tool icon as the cursor when using the trackpad and keyboard.

  19. Align dashes to corners and fit length

    On desktop, there is an option to adjust the dash/gap corners so that it fits the stroke/shape. There is no option for this on the iPad, and I would really like to see this asap so I can make dotted boxes.

  20. Locate and find selected paths in layers panel

    When the artwork becomes more complex, it’s almost impossible to locate selected object in layers panel, except doing it manually. You should mark the layer, group, clip group, that contains the selected object. Just like you did with a little square on the right side of the layers panel on desktop version.
    Keep on with such a great work!
