EYEDROPPER SHORTCUT PLEASSEEEE (i) *just like desktop
Please please please give us a shortcut for eye dropper. I can’t fathom how this was overlooked. AI for iPad is virtually useless for me, and doubtless others, without it. Its nice to not be chained to my desktop for work.88 votes

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 this33 votes
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

Support for keyboards

Almost all features in Ai on iPad now have keyboard support.
Export Single Artboard
Right now it seems we have to export all artboards at once every time. It would be great if you could select one and only export that (great for when you need to update small changes to designs)19 votes

Line tool is now available in the 2.0 version. Let us know if this is working per your expectations. Thanks!
