Envelope and mesh distort tools.
Same as on the full version, something that’s definitely missing from the iPad version.

A much needed feature is warping, distorting skewing any object or text. I want to be able to conform or stretch vector text any shape i want like a fish, or star, and anything. I believe this feature is called envelope on a desktop app. I dont like that I have to go to Procreate to achieve this affect.

Slanted or skew text or objects is needed.

The ability to skew an object Is desperately needed !! I don’t understand how that feature could be overlooked
Hey, guys. Would love to se Envelope distort come to the app, and I would love if you guys had the smart guid system also have the ability to light up for the space between objects. Would also like to see the guides system built in similar to the desktop version. Would also like to see the canvas have the ability to have two finger pan. Another big one would be EPS export ability, and a some more advanced ability when it comes to swatches, like being able to create a spot color swatch for large scale print and cut. The app is really starting to take shape. I think all of us who have been using illustrator for 20 plus years, who also use iPad would love to see as many of the desktop features come as possible. The foundation is very solid.

Envelop distort to allow to manipulate text to a shape.
That would be great
The ability to visually warp vector shapes was one of the most attractive features found in Macromedia Freehand (yes, I remember). It was the reason I began using (transitioned to) Illustrator at all. When the iPad Pro Revolution occurred, Envelope Distort in illustrator on my laptop was actually my only reason for maintaining an Adobe CC subscription at all. As workarounds for the effect were discovered, I dropped Adobe CC altogether in favor of iPad-based solutions.
There are times when Envelope Distort on the desktop version can be used in a way to bog things down or even crash the application, especially when users don’t ‘expand’ or ‘bake’ the results. So even if ED were implemented in such a way that the user is taken to a sort of temporary Isolation Mode that creates a point of no return for the operation, sort of like the way the Shapebuilder Tool currently does on the iPad version, that would be okay. Currently, Envelope Distort is the one tool that a lot of less expensive and very powerful iPad apps do not offer. Without it, there is not a lot of reason for those of us who have become very comfortable/work exclusively using our iPads to go back to Adobe.
As available on the desktop app, the ability to distort objects and outlined text would be a very welcome feature.
