  1. Make Desktop and iPad versions look the same

    It would be a lot easier if both versions of Illustrator (desktop and iPad) looked the same, especially for new learners.

  4. Allow iPad to work as drawing tablet (screen pairing)

    I bought a iPad Pro recently and would like it if i could use my iPad as a wireless drawing tablet. It would be great if i could work in the same document on my Windows PC and iPad at the same time, maybe through the cloud. I was hoping that Duet Pro would help but sadly it has a lot of latency.

  6. Pencil tool option to not automatically close paths

    Would be great to have the flexibility of having a tool that can accurately capture handwriting - automatic path closing prevents this

    It is now possible to open Pencil Tool Options and untick 'Close paths when ends are within a set tolerance' option completely (or change the value).


    This will effectively stop Pencil from auto-joining.


    If you want this option to be toggleable on the fly — please vote here: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/45913831-hold-cmd-ctrl-key-while-drawing-with-pencil-to-tem

  11. Allow to import and export EPS files into Illustrator on iPad

    Allow to import .eps files into illustrator as editable vectors, similar like the desktop version. Would make editing ready / bought .eps files on the app possible and get so much done in a shorter amount of time. Please have this feature.

  13. Knife / Slice & Scissor tools

    Available under the “erase” tool just as they are on the desktop. Or make a shortcut key to erase in straight lines, currently there isn’t an easy way to break paths.

  15. If not already suggested, arrows and other line end options

    As per I think the desktop version of AI, and for def, other Mac and iPad drawing apps, be nice to be able to add arrows and other end points to lines. And even better, include a dimensioning option. I know AI is not for CAD or related purposes, but it is in fact, almost good enough for such application, so why not? ;)

  19. Make iPad AI more compatible with external keyboard

    I have noticed when using a Magic Keyboard with AI on the iPad, that the arrow keys do not function in relation to typing blocks of text. How about the ability to move the curser with the arrow keys? It is fiddly using your finger on the touch screen to place the curser accurately.
