  3. ability to set repeat distance to specific value

    It would be very helpful to be able to set the repeat distance (space between repeated objects) to a specific value or have the distance snap to the grid when snap to grid is active.

  4. Expand (convert to paths) mirrored artwork

    Please add convert to path for mirrored drawings. After making sure the drawin is perfectly mirrored we don’t need the invisible part. For creators lile me that need to create a cutting outline for stickers it‘s really time consuming to outline mirrored drawings

  8. More hotkeys for Patterns and Repeats

    I am a fashion designer and being able to use and make print and fabric swatches from images are essential features I use everyday. Other than that, we do need more shortcuts. I am still 100x quicker on Illustrator pc, as I know all my shortcuts which I can’t leave without. Ai on IPad still doesn’t live up to a standard which I can see myself using daily. Which is a shame, I would love to sketch while sitting on my sofa...

  10. Convert repeated patterns into paths

    I want to take a repeated pattern and use the shape builder on the result. There does not seem to be a way to finalise a pattern so that it can be converted to curves.

    As per the comment (quoted):

    Select your pattern. In the task bar (on the right), tap object (square with dots in the corner and shapes inside of it) and choose Expand. This will create a grouped object inside a clipping path. The pattern can no longer be edited with the repeat task. If you want to delete the clipping path, double tap it and delete (you might want to change to Outline view to see the clipping path easier). Ungroup the objects or just double tap the object you want to edit.

  11. Repeat pattern/Radial Repeat focus mode + Copy and paste

    In an early build of the beta/alpha there was the ability to see what objects were in the repeat patterns and it made it easy to drag and drop new things into the pattern without having to use the selection workaround.

    I would like to be able to open up the pattern in a focus mode of sorts where you could create new objects in the pattern and copy and paste other things into that group.
