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.2 votes
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 illustrator6 votes

We were able to ship support for Art and Calligraphic Brushes in our 2.0 release. But there is more to be done for Import / Export of (atleast) these Brush types. We’re keeping this thread open for your feedback. Thank you!
Import Video to layers

I use brush tool and pencil tool A LOT. Swap between them is a pain since they are both subtools under the same button. Having the ability to split them will make my life SO MUCH EASIER.2 votes
Pick color not working.
Color picker does not detect any color all of a sudden and it makes my shapes strokes transparent black or white.1 vote
Expand (convert to paths) mirrored artwork
Please add convert to path for mirrored drawings. After making sure the drawin is perfectly mirrored we don’t need the invisible part. For creators lile me that need to create a cutting outline for stickers it‘s really time consuming to outline mirrored drawings1 vote0 comments · Repeats · Admin →
Multiple lines/text wrap with text on path
At this point it seems like if you want to type something longer with type on path, you have to keep it to one line, or create a second type on path to continue. This makes it very cumbersome, and impossible to use if you want to type a larger section of text. I think there should be a way to wrap text so it automatically creates a new line of text.
The current solution is also frustrating because you often have to manually re-shape the path to make things fit evenly/correctly.2 votes
smaller brush size
Brush size has a limitation 1 point. It would be nice if it could get smaller into decimals.3 votes0 comments · Brushes · Admin →
Rotate bounding box only
The bounding box is forever fixed now, and we can’t reset it, the way it is possible in the desktop (and there is a separate request for that: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/931888-illustrator-ipad-feature-requests/suggestions/42167054-reset-bounding-box).
But it would be better to make it better— by giving a mode to freely rotate the bounding box the way we need, to zero or another angle.
One more button in the context panel, or a toggle we can get when hold the rotation handle (to display the rotation center) — either way will do.1 vote

Constrain proportions during resizing
The user shouldn't need to use "the bubble" in order to keep proportions of an object during resizing.
If I want to resize a circle, I shouldn't need to take additional step while resizing it in order for it not to turn into an oval.

EYEDROPPER SHORTCUT PLEASSEEEE (i) *just like desktop
Please please please give us a shortcut for eye dropper. I can’t fathom how this was overlooked. AI for iPad is virtually useless for me, and doubtless others, without it. Its nice to not be chained to my desktop for work.88 votes
We released a new version today - 3.0.1 and we are now supporting eyedropper shortcut.
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.2 votes
Select all color swatches to delete at once.
Since I almost always want to delete the standard color swatches in a new document, it would be nice to be able to select all at once to delete, or at least multiples, instead of having to delete one at a time, very inefficient.4 votes
Videos explaining all the features
It would be extremely appreciated if y’all had an advanced user create a video that showed what each button does posted on a ‘Adobe’s learning’ webpage or app1 vote
