  1. Load and use scripts

    Scripts can be amazing tools to improve workflow in a way actions cannot. It would be amazing to be able to load and use the ones I can use in the Desktop version.

  3. Add panning and zooming with keyboard and mouse

    I’m trying to use illustrator for ipad with a keyboard and mouse but only being able to pan and zoom with my hands really is disruptive to my workflow (coming from a desktop user). It definitely requires a big habit change on my part to lift my hand up to the screen everytime I want to move the canvas around, but I would LOVE to have the pan and zoom by holding spacebar and moving around as well as cmd + scrolling respectively. This is the only thing making me not want to switch to using illustrator for ipad full…

  8. Enable transform tool to move elements by a specific measurement

    I am a pattern designer and it would be so helpful if the Properties panel, you could type in a measurement into the transform tool, to make your elements move a specific amount that you designate. For example if I have an element on the left of my screen and I want to duplicate it and move it to the right to make a repeating pattern — let’s say I’m using an 8” screen size — it would be wonderful to add to the x or y numbers +8” or +4”, etc.

    This would be a great feature for surface…

  10. 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.

  12. Swatches panel / fill color

    Easier way to select color and fill in color is needed! Having to select on the color tool every time and then from there select the eye dropper tool every time you need to change a color is way to much work. Make the swatch panel always visible on screen. There should be a shortcut or something where you can hold down to fill with selected color or a live paint bucket tool. Also, making a color palette in swatches and being able to save it so you can use it in other files.

  13. Need the ability to make strokes smaller than 1pt.

    I bought my iPad Pro with the intention to use it for architecture and doing the line weights on them after exporting from rhino 6. The issue is I often make the line weights well below 1 pt when doing smaller scaled drawings. With out this ability, adobe is useless on my IPad.

  14. Export Single Artboard

    Right now it seems we have to export all artboards at once every time. It would be great if you could select one and only export that (great for when you need to update small changes to designs)

  15. Font search

    Let me search for fonts by typing, rather than scrolling through a long list. In the future it would also be great if I could have some filtering features (serif, sans, script etc…)

  16. Double click on Apple Pencil switches between existing and previous tool

    I’m using Good notes 4 quite a lot with some handy feature to switch between tools, speeds up the workflow a lot, just by double clicking on the Apple Pencil.

  17. Add Stroke Profiles for Illustrator on iPad

    This is something that's very useful in the desktop version and, in my opinion, cannot be replaced by brush strokes with the blob brush tool.
    The different stroke profiles can give a clean look while keeping the strokes editable. see atached image to see what I mean.

  18. iPad copy/paste Mac

    I can’t copy/paste stuff between Illustrator on my iPad and on my Mac and it’s a bit annoying… I also can’t really paste stuff in Illustrator on the iPad from the internet
    Is it possible to change that?

  19. Support for keyboards

    If you had the ability to utilize an attached keyboard on the iPad it would enable there to be a cohesion in learning shortcuts and there would be less of a learning curve between the two versions of the software, as well as enhancing the iPad software itself.

  20. Pan with mouse on ipad

    I would like to see the ability to pan with the spacebar and mouse on iPad version. And also with double finger on trackpad. I feel its a bit annoying to touch the screen since im using the ipad as a laptop replacement.
