Re-draw line in the pencil tool, like in desktop
In the desktop when you draw with the pencil over existing line it allow you to re-draw fro. That section on. I was really surprised this ability isn’t available in the first version- seems like a must for the iPad, and a big differentiator from procreate and raster tools

Please implement this feature, even if it’s a toggle in the settings. It’s absolutely necessary for use in the ipad version and is the game changer that we have been waiting for.

The absence of this pretty much renders the iPad version of Illustrator useless for me. I trace hand-drawn sketches when drafting maps, and need to "adjust"/correct my traces frequently. :-/

Bonjour, je souhaiterai avoir la possibilité sur iPad de remodeler un tracé actif en repassant dessus avec le crayon ou le pinceau, comme c'est le cas sur la version desktop. Cette fonction est très utile pour les dessinateurs, lorsqu'on veut affiner ses tracés de manière plus spontanée que la sélection par point et le travail des tangentes. Pour moi c'est une fonction essentielle de la version bureau que je souhaiterai vraiment retrouver sur la version iPad.
Merci à vous,

I keep forgetting the ipad app doesn't support this, and it's very frustrating. I would greatly appreciate this feature and other features that have been added seem to me to be considerably lower priority for work flow.
Thank you adobe for getting this feature in the app!

Please make it possible to redraw paths with the pencil tool like in the desktop app. It seems like an essential function for the iPad app to make this possible using your Apple Pencil. It was the first thing I wanted to do with the iPad App was import my Illustrator document and redraw the paths with the Apple Pencil but I was shocked to find it can’t do that and people have been asking for that function since 2020. Otherwise it’s completely useless to me as an illustrator

Wow it’s 2022 and this function still isn’t available, I’m really disappointed and annoyed because I completely agree with you how can they not have the ability to redraw paths with the pencil tool with the iPad in Illustrator. Adobe is simply a case of can’t live with them and can’t live without them, very frustrating.

It is useless without this function ((((
once a vectorial line is drawn it is not possible anymore to redraw it. only by pulling on the circles or squares
in the pc version of illustrator, you can redraw the line by drawing over it
this is a major difference with other drawing programs and should be included in the ipad app

This is a most important thing in AI
One cannot work with Illustrator on iPad!
What are you doing Adobe ….

Absolute necessity for us designers. Also, have options for KEEP SELECTED or Not
The Pencil tool should be able to redraw a selected path. Instead, the iPad version simply draws a new path even when the object is selected.
Andrew Matthews commented
Seconded. SO important. Please add asap!
Totally agree. Illustrator for iPad is practically worthless without this.
Jaime Bernal commented
100% this is a must
Please. Illustrator for iPad is almost useless TO ME until this gets added. My apologies :(
Yes this is a feature I regularly use too, it would save a lot of time to be able to do this on the iPad version.
Totally agree with you !
Without this option, the pencil tool is unusable for me.

Yes! Totally agree. This is one of the only reasons I want to use Illustrator on my iPad.
One of the best features of the pencil tool on desktop is the ability to redraw a portion of a shape by drawing over the existing line and then ending on the edge of the shape. I would really love to see this feature included on mobile.
