  1. Can you add a button that ‘Zooms to True Scale’?

    I do a lot of design work where I need to see how big something is in real life. It would be nice if I could tell it to set the view to match the real world. So 1” = 1”, or 1mm = 1mm.

    Ideally it would have a little icon in the bottom right that always shows what the scale factor is compared to the real world (like .25/1 if smaller, or 1.25/1 if zoomed in), then you could click the button and it would snap the zoom to 1/1.

    I currently hold a ruler or calipers up…

  2. Illustrator on iPad seems to be dead

    It’s been ages since the last update which like the few recent ones was only minor bug fixes. No new features are added and the feature parity in non-existent. I’m afraid Illustrator on iPad is on maintenance mode…

  3. Use different units of measure when transforming object

    When creating an object, I often need to resize it according to specification. In an AI project, I use different units of measure. Say, for instance, that the project has a default unit setting of ‘centimeters’. If I need to create a 7.5x3 inch object, I’d like to be able to type the unit in the width and height fields on the Properties-Transform panel. For example, I want to type height = 7.5 in. The “in” would replace the “cm” which automatically appears in the field.

    This feature is has been available in Illustrator for Desktop app for quite a…

  4. Highlight selected layer’s object

    When select a path on the canvas, it doesn’t highlights the layer it is contained on the layers palette. It’s impossible find it in the context when you work with hundreds of paths. Also, please, make it in a bold color… not a slightly hue. It’s not about minimalistic UI, but about usability and efficiency.

  5. zoom out with 2 fingers optional please

    understandable that some users like the zoom out gesture with 2 fingers

    for all other users - perhaps many - who find it very frustrating and unnecessary, can we please have this gesture as an option?

    on average working 3h with iPad illustrator, even though I very much carefully avoid this gesture, at least 10-20 times in 3h, by total mistake I end up undoing the accidental zoom out, meaning having to zoom in and zoom in and zoom in then pan and pan and pan until I am again where I was before the accidental zoom out

  6. Clear Recent Files

  7. Make image trace logo source b&w by default

    currently, Logo source automatically scans as color by default, even when source is black only. Please make default b&w instead.

  9. still show the layers as white being blank when using dark theme interface

    When using the light theme, if you look at the layer, blank space for the thumbnail of that layer is seen as white. However, if you use the dark theme interface, it somehow makes the blank space of the thumbnail layer block, which makes it very difficult to see what’s on that layer.

    So, I’d really appreciate it if you could make it so that when I’m using the dark theme for the user interface, the blank space of a layer thumbnail is still white.

  10. 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.

  11. Customise toolbar

    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.

  12. The app settings button is a button within a button. Fix it.

    So theres an issue with the app settings button in the navigation bar. Its the gear icon button. It is a button within a button. This is called bad design and we need to fix it. Its bad design because I have to click a button to get to the app settings and then I have to click another button to get to the app settings when the first button should have gotten me to the app settings but it didn’t.

    If I click on the gear icon, which is my app settings button, I am given a pop up…

  13. Turn Off Undo/Redo Buttons

    I need a setting in the app settings that will allow users to turn off the undo and redo buttons at the top of the UI where the navigation bar is located. I dont need to see them. Theyre distracting. I use my 2 fingers and 3 finger gesture to undo/redo, so I have no use in seeing them up there. Im not going to use them. Im using my gestures instead. Please allow users to turn them off in the app settings. This is an easy fix. This should be in the next update.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. フレスコのようにタッチショートカットを固定(長押ししなくてもいい)できるようにしてほしい

    フレスコのようにタッチショートカットがタッチごとに切り替わって固定できるようにしてほしい。
    片腕しか使えないから、ペンを持ってると長押ししながらペンで描画とか不可能だから、ほぼ使えない機能なのが悲しい。
    切実に追加してほしい。

  18. Add a quick show/hide button to reveal tool tip labels

    Unlike desktop/Wacom styluses, the apple pencil has no hover state which makes it hard to know what tool does what. Would be very useful to have a quick show/hide button to quickly see hovering tool tips for each tool option in lieu of having a hover capability. Example UI attached.

  19. 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

  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…
