  1. Envelope, Warp, and mesh distort tools

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

  2. Linguagem em Português

    Vocês poderiam adicionar no aplicativo para o iPad a linguagem em português, para facilitar para os brasileiros também a utilizar, amo todas plataforma de vocês, mas isso é algo fundamental, ter opção de linguagem não só em português mas em outras línguas para o aplicativo do iPad.

  3. 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.)

  5. Export from the menu

    On iPad illustrator version I would like to be able to export my file from the main menu, without having to open the file itself, wich rearranges the order of my recents which can be inconvenient.

  6. Make illustrator for iPad recognize Khmer Unicode font like Photoshop for iPad

    I'm from Cambodia and Khmer is my language. I am a graphic designer and most of the works I am working on is Khmer. We are using Khmer Unicode as our keyboard layout. I was so excited to use Khmer on illustrator for iPad but I am so disappointed to see that the illustrator for iPad doesn't support Khmer Unicode but surprisingly Photoshop for iPad does. Why doesn't both support the same features as they come from the same company. I have used Affinity photo and designer too but they also don't support Khmer Unicode on both desktop apps and…

  7. Path smoothing and path pushing

    The ability to smooth sections of a path after it’s drawn is a key feature. Also the ability to use a ‘variable size brush’ beside a path to push sections of a path. The app ‘concept’ is still more valuable to me as a vector tool as far as features go.

    I am a senior art director with over 20 years experience working with Adobe products

  9. Width Tool (found in the desktop version)

    Please please please, introduce this tool for the iPad.

    This one of my favorite features in Illustrator.

    Thank you.

  10. Deal with markup directly

    Add a feature which enables the user to directly input SVG markup into the application, instead of having to import an SVG file all the time. Will save a lot of time for those who make SVGs by hand like me.
    Also, I would like it if I can just switch from graphical editing to markup editing seamlessly within the app. It would help with developing SVGs a lot.

  11. Show current active layer

    It would be great to always be aware of the layer you are working on. Dockable submenus could keep the layers in open view to be sure that is the layer pen strokes will be collected on the appropriate layer if you accidentally touch another part of the project

  12. 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

  13. Ability to rotate objects exactly

    I need to be able to rotate an image by very small increments. It’s possible to do this past 1.8 and 358.2 degrees, but the object always automatically snaps to 0 after/before that. I often need to rotate something by just a few points of a degree to the left or right. Please allow more nuanced rotation, by either adding the ability to rotate by a corner, or pressing a button to rotate something by smaller increments than 10 degrees, or by adding a way to numerically enter an amount, or by getting rid of the ability to snap around…

  14. 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.

  15. Stroke opacity on shapes

    Would love to have Stroke opacity setting on shapes, as on desktop Ai. Now, for example, I must create a filled shape and then add another shape only with stroke, if I want to tweak the stroke’s opacity.

    Also width tool should be a must on iPad!

  16. Scale with percentage

    Make it possible to scale an object via a percentage input box.
    For example:
    Scale: xx % (manually input), and/or with a slider

  18. Allow to add multiple swatches at once, similar to Color Groups in Desktop

    If one wants to add a color swatch, they can tap Plus button in Swatches section.
    However there is no wat to add all colors from selected objects, you have to do it one by one, which is tedious.
    Please make a way to adding selected colors into a color group or at least as an ungrouped set, just like Ai on desktop can do.

  19. Create seemless interoperability between .ai and .aic

    Currently .ai files opened on the ipad have their layer structure and object structure modified much like when you open files with older versions of a software. The objects are defined by bounding boxes and clipping masks.
