  1. Off the object

    When I want to move an object, I usually put the Apple pencil on it and move it. I wish Adobe could make it that i can put the pencil or finger on any area on the artboard and move it. That will help me see and control objects much easier and better..

  3. Export to .jpg

    I couldn’t find an export to jpg option, It’s a very common format I was surprised it wasn’t included.

    In addition to that a slices option would be great.

  6. .AIC compatibility with InDesign

    I don’t see a way to place .aic files which I’ve manipulated on iPad into an InDesign document. Is the format not supported or is this an issue of file handling? As a separate note, the file organization isn’t very intuitive for Illustrator cloud documents and the slow refresh can often hide files completely.

  8. Make it possible to delete layers

    Make it possible to delete layers via sliding and clicking on a trashcan. And just like in the desktop version ask ‘are you sure’.

  10. How to change ppi?

    When creating a new document I can’t figure out how to change ppi. Once in a document I can see in “info” that my ppi is 72, but again, can’t see a way to change it

  11. 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.

  13. Processor usage indicator

    I often struggle with not knowing if nothing is happening because what I am trying to do is not supported, or if nothing is happening because the M 1 processor is just busy doing the calculations needed to execute my command.
    As illustrator is rather processor consuming, it is often the latter, but I never know for sure until waiting time is over, or until I have given up hope and jumped to some other function. Some kind of “the iPad processor is busy calculating your request, please hold”-indicator would be extremely helpful thank you.

  14. Pencil Doppeltippen „Rückgängig“

    Es wäre toll, wenn ich auf dem iPad durch Doppeltippen des Apple Pen 2 den zuletzt gesetzten Strich rückgängig machen könnte.

  15. Move the undo button from near split screen button

    Move the undo and redo buttons when holding the iPad in portrait mode. Currently on the iPad mini (2021) the split screen 3 dots are overlapping the undo button. Which means I either have to turn my iPad to landscape or use the Apple Pencil and be very precise to click the left most part of the undo button in order for it to undo

  17. Drag layer on to another to create clipping mask

    Having used Affinity designer for a while I am blown away by the whole UI. It makes using illustrator a chore in comparison but I need to have After effects compatibility. A stand out feature is being able to drag a layer on top of another to create a clipping mask. It also doesn’t delete the mask layer so no need to duplicate it first if you want to keep the mask source. It is a much better solution than Adobe and should be added to desktop and iPad!

  18. 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.

  19. Apply brushes to strokes

    We should be able to apply brushes to strokes of all kinds. The added brush tool is useless without this feature.

  20. 'remember last stroke' and 'new art has basic appearance'

    Adobe you really should and need to bring some of the finer settings across from the desktop if you are serious about these being PRODUCTIVE tools and not just permanent pre-release beta tests rented under the subscription narrative.

    No-one wants to move BACKWARDS either feature OR PRODUCTIVE-wise.

    Desktop Illustrator has a SIMPLE setting to either REMEMBER the last selected stroke setting OR allows for 'new art has basic appearance' which could easily be implemented on the ipad version with a check-box in a preference setting.

    Without this simple setting my productivity is completely broken and now far more convoluted requiring…
