  1. 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…

  2. Perspective assistance grid from Adobe Draw

    In previous app Adobe Draw had most unique feature of perspective grid which also allowed us to draw circles in perspective view with super ease, it was helpful for more complex geometric design and we were able to faster draw with free hand, I request to Adobe Team please re-introduce this feature in Illustrator.

  3. Morph iPad Cursor

    We need the cursor on iPad to morph into a more fine shape in some instances, like over anchor points, curve points, and even transform boxes. It’s currently difficult to precisely manipulate some objects with the oversized circle cursor. This would improve trackpad or mouse input greatly.

  5. Ad option to auto hide iconic panels in settings

    It would be nice to be able to toggle the option ‘auto hide iconic panels’ in settings, similar to the desktop version of Illustrator.

  8. Ability to Open Multiple Documents to Copy & Paste Between Them

    I have various assets I've created and I often want to copy part of one over to something new I'm creating, and yet I can't open multiple documents to be able to copy and paste between them. For example, I want to use a portion of a graphic in another new graphic I'm creating, and I want to open the existing one, ungroup the items, select the part I want and copy and paste it over into the new document. I can paste the original item, but it pulls in grouped together as one image so I can't grab just…

  10. Save Colour Swatches Permanently

    Every time I open a new document my colour swatches that I had saved previously are gone.
    Let us keep and have a way to save and organise our colour palettes (like procreate) please. Thank you!

  12. Need to add the Area Type Tool

    I’d love to have the area type tool and other type functions from the desktop version added to the iPads version. I do a lot of work with a placed photo and type that flows around it. On the iPad I have to make multiple text containers instead of a vector shape for the text to flow within.

  13. Deselect on iPad

    I looked around and didn't find a shortcut/gesture to deselect anything, especially after using the pencil tool, In the pencil tool on the desktop version, there is an option to choose whether you want to keep last drawn line selected, or to keep it unselected.

  15. Shape tool that allows multipoint star tool and multi side polygons

    It would be helpful to have the ability to change the number of points on a star or a polygon like we can on the desktop version.

  16. Could you make the option to set it as a past version?

    I use illustrator (desktop) to make a file for laser engraving machine or cnc.
    And that machines only read illustrator version 8.
    I usually use desktop to do this but sometimes I can’t access to desktop so I wish I can use that function with my ipad.

  17. 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.

  19. Allow printing from the iPad

    Please allow for users to print directly from the iPad. Right now we have to save the file and then go to a desktop version to print the files out. This is highly inconvenient and most people design directly on the iPad due to the versatility of using tools like an Apple Pencil. So, please add in a printing option directly from the iPad.
