  1. Smooth tool like the desktop version

    On the desktop version they have a smooth tool where you can target specific lines and shapes. I use this tool constantly and was disappointed to not find it on the app version. It’s the major missing feature keeping me from using the app more often

  2. Stroke opacity on shapes

    Would love to have Stroke opacity setting on shapes, as on desktop Ai. Now, for example, I must create a filled shape and then add another shape only with stroke, if I want to tweak the stroke’s opacity.

    Also width tool should be a must on iPad!

  6. Hiding Layers

    Like in Excel: should be able to hide all layers then unhide just the layer you want to work on.

  9. Character and Paragraph styles needed!

    We need the ability to create, edit and apply character and paragraph styles.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. To be able to create a new path off another path when using the pen tool like you can on pc

    I normally link paths up while doing my art, expand and then use live paint mode on my Mac but can’t on the iPad. Would be awesome to be able to do this ! Example below to hopefully help this make sense

  15. Make Recent Color section as in Photoshop

    It would be nice to have a thing similar to Photoshop strip of recently used colors, with an ability to quickly convert one or several into proper swatches.
    Probably a function that just add all used color into swatches automatically can be useful also, with a clear signaling it is active, to prevent accidental swatches bloating.

  16. Allow to add multiple swatches at once, similar to Color Groups in Desktop

    If one wants to add a color swatch, they can tap Plus button in Swatches section.
    However there is no wat to add all colors from selected objects, you have to do it one by one, which is tedious.
    Please make a way to adding selected colors into a color group or at least as an ungrouped set, just like Ai on desktop can do.

  18. .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.

  19. Anchor point on steroids

    The anchor point is one of the top killer additions to the transformation tool in Illustrator. Currently as of 28 Jan 2021, we can only change the anchor point when rotating a shape.

    However this functionality is very limited considering the potential of the anchor point nd that the anchor point is reset to centre, whether we need this behaviour or not.

    For example, why can’t why adjust the anchor point for scaling or ny other transformation (skew, distort, warp, perspective, etc) as well?

    Could we also snap the anchor point to every corner of the marquee?

    How about leaving…
