  1. Being able to import Fresco iPad brushes to iPad illustrator and save them permanently to the illustrator brush library.

    Fresco has a great set of brushes. It would improve Illustrator on the iPad immensely if they were interchangeable and could be added to the illustrator iPad brush menu permanently.

    Please add a feature for illustrator that is a pattern preview, such as in photoshop or affinity designer. Since illustrator is literally for patterns and illustrations, this feature should be in AI

  6. Use different units of measure when transforming object

    When creating an object, I often need to resize it according to specification. In an AI project, I use different units of measure. Say, for instance, that the project has a default unit setting of ‘centimeters’. If I need to create a 7.5x3 inch object, I’d like to be able to type the unit in the width and height fields on the Properties-Transform panel. For example, I want to type height = 7.5 in. The “in” would replace the “cm” which automatically appears in the field.

    This feature is has been available in Illustrator for Desktop app for quite a…

  7. Add a simple "In progress" indicator to the editing window.

    Can you add a simple "In progress" indicator to the editing window?

    A simple blinking object or something to show Illustrator-iPad is busy performing the last Instruction? I do realize doing running Illustrator on an iPad is quite a challenge to resource management, and every bit of processing power has to be managed well.

    When working with complex objects, and Illustrator stops responding to instructions because the last instruction was very a big one, I sometimes wonder if Illustrator is just busy, or has frozen up. To find out I tried taping some other instruction … bad idea.

    Illustrator usually…

  9. Feature to to disable/hide unused fonts

    This is definitely not the first time this has been suggested, but at this point in 2023, it’s crazy that there’s not a way to hide unused or rarely used fonts from the main font menu. If I want to find a font, I have to wade through hundreds of system fonts, including things like Noto Linear A, which is an undeciphered script, to get to the font I want.

    Ideally, this would be a toggle button, similar to favorites, where you can click a toggle to hide the font, and have them in a separate “Hidden” category where they…

  11. Please increase the limit for Keyboard Increment

    The Keyboard Increment (aka Cursor Key Distance) is limited to 1296 px.
    But artboards can be much bigger. So please set this limit to eg the half of the maximum artboard size.

  13. 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.

    Import/place does not allow access to existing Illustrator (ipad) files. Argh.

  15. Highlight selected layer’s object

    When select a path on the canvas, it doesn’t highlights the layer it is contained on the layers palette. It’s impossible find it in the context when you work with hundreds of paths. Also, please, make it in a bold color… not a slightly hue. It’s not about minimalistic UI, but about usability and efficiency.

  18. Eraser tool on the iPad should work with Shift and Option/Alt shortcuts (like desktop)

    On the desktop, Shift constrains the eraser to 45º and Option/Alt erases as a marquee.
    Can we please have the same functionality for the iPad? The touch shortcuts don't work with the eraser tool, and neither do the keyboard shortcuts. Thanks!

  20. Cropping Layers

    I know that cropping images is not yet a feature either. However, I have been having a horrible time trying to crop a layer so that I can continue designs throughout.
    The only option right now is Transform, which makes the design look very novice.
