  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.

  2. Morph iPad Cursor

    We need the cursor on iPad to morph into a more fine shape in some instances, like over anchor points, curve points, and even transform boxes. It’s currently difficult to precisely manipulate some objects with the oversized circle cursor. This would improve trackpad or mouse input greatly.

  3. Illustrator for iPad - allow me to move common actions bar.

    I’m going through one of the tutorials and I can’t rotate an object because the common actions bar is blocking the rotation node and there is no way for me to move it out of the way.

  4. 'remember last stroke' and 'new art has basic appearance'

    Adobe you really should and need to bring some of the finer settings across from the desktop if you are serious about these being PRODUCTIVE tools and not just permanent pre-release beta tests rented under the subscription narrative.

    No-one wants to move BACKWARDS either feature OR PRODUCTIVE-wise.

    Desktop Illustrator has a SIMPLE setting to either REMEMBER the last selected stroke setting OR allows for 'new art has basic appearance' which could easily be implemented on the ipad version with a check-box in a preference setting.

    Without this simple setting my productivity is completely broken and now far more convoluted requiring…

  5. Make ESC Key = CMD + Return

    There is not a physical Escape (ESC) key on the iPad Pro Magic Keyboard.
    On PC, I’m used to hitting CTRL+Enter to exit an active text object.

    Could we please make CMD+Return on the iPad exit an active text field?
    Currently that Keyboard Shortcut is ESC. Which doesn’t exist. And the Apple version CMD+. Doesn’t work either. CMD+Return would be the most familiar and fluid option.

  6. Save Confirmation

    I have problem when i accidentally touch the back button, the canvas is automatically saved at the current progress, when we access the canvas again, changed progress we did before cannot be undo. My suggestion please make save confirmation, so we can cancel the back action when we accidentally press it, just like desktop version of AI. Thank you

  7. Move the undo button from near split screen button

    Move the undo and redo buttons when holding the iPad in portrait mode. Currently on the iPad mini (2021) the split screen 3 dots are overlapping the undo button. Which means I either have to turn my iPad to landscape or use the Apple Pencil and be very precise to click the left most part of the undo button in order for it to undo

  9. Hiding Properties Panel

    When I’m working with text with the Properties panel open, and then make the text live to edit - the Properties panel hides automatically. So, if I’m trying to select letters or words specifically to edit, I have to reopen the Properties panel. It of course reappears after closing the live text edit. I think I’d like the panel to stay up, or perhaps reappear after making a single letter or word selection.

  11. “Jump to…”

    Tap (finger or pencil) UNDO or REDO banner/notification to jump to the undo/redo area. I.e. I want to see what I undo/redo when I have accidentally jumped art boards.

    Without the screen real estate of a desktop or laptop, it can be easy to get lost in a smaller and easily rescalable (i.e. “quick pinch gesture” to jump to art board) workspace.
