  1. Touch Modifier to Constrain Handles to 90º or 45º

    It’d shave off a lot of time and make my workflow smoother to be able to use a touch modifier (like what’s currently in the bottom left hand corner) to constrain the handles to perfectly horizontal, vertical, or diagonal angles, much like holding shift would do on the desktop version.

  2. Ability to show individual layers in outline view

    Maybe using the option 'button' whilst clicking on the visibility icon could put an individual layer into outline mode?

  3. Faster shape building

    The shape builder function is great, but the workflow is quite slow to having to go into the combine shape tab then and selecting the shape builder. Could there be some way of quickly accessing the shape builder option directly at all?

  4. Include the ability to resize and manipulate selected points

    There should be an option to be able to resize and manipulate selected points in artwork. Maybe once the points have been selected there could be a scale tool modifier? Or a specific scale tool in the toolbar...

  5. Free transform tool

    Include a free transform tool that can actually transform selected shapes, groups etc. Similar to the free transform distort option in photoshop. The bounding box should not revert back to a rectangular box though it should remain distorted. This will make it much easier to distort artwork etc. to map to a specific plane.

  6. Would be great if you could get inspired by Procreate functions and workflow

    I love Illustrator on the PC and Procreate on the iPad. Procreate has lots of nice features that I would like to be seen in Illustrator for iPad, like how you use one or two fingers on the screen to control different things, selection tools etc...

  7. 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.

  8. CC Libraries character/paragraph styles

    It was great if also character and paragraph styles of cc libraries were supported. This is the only thing at the moment preventing me from working on the iPad only.

  9. Direct selection tool

    Would be awesome if you could use the touch ring already before selecting objects in a group to pick individual objects..Now I just move the objects a tiny bit every time when I double click.. Annoying.

  12. Path smoothing and path pushing

    The ability to smooth sections of a path after it’s drawn is a key feature. Also the ability to use a ‘variable size brush’ beside a path to push sections of a path. The app ‘concept’ is still more valuable to me as a vector tool as far as features go.

  13. Import image? Surprised this isn’t already a feature.

    Trying to import images of boat plans to digitize into 3D models... but there isn’t an ‘import image’ option. There is only work arounds that say to import image into Adobe illustrator Draw, and that should upload it to Adobe Cloud and it should work. Well, it doesn’t. Adobe Cloud cannot sync “at this time. Try again later”
    Very disappointed and let down. I’ve been waiting years for this to arrive on the iPad, and it’s just as useless as whatever Illustrator Draw was supposed to accomplish.

  18. Open a .ai file located on the creative cloud.

    The import and open option within the app places my .ai as an image within a new document instead of opening the .ai file.
