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

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.30 votes
Addition of 3D Effects
I would really benefit from the ability to revolve, extrude and bevel objects on the iPad. That is one of the last things keeping me from switching to Illustrator on the iPad full time.29 votes

Export just one artboard
Can’t export just one artboard. Have to export all of them.26 votes
In the latest update, more controls have been added to the export formats. It is possible to export selections, artboards, and the entire document.
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? ;)26 votes
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.25 votes4 comments · Tools · Admin →

Double click on Apple Pencil switches between existing and previous tool
I’m using Good notes 4 quite a lot with some handy feature to switch between tools, speeds up the workflow a lot, just by double clicking on the Apple Pencil.23 votes
I use my Bluetooth mouse for almost everything on my iPad and not to mention it’s also plays a key role in creating graphics on my desktop illustrator as well. So it would be very very nice to see an option where I can move my anchor points or draw a line with my mouse on the iPad as well.
Please do consider this option it would mean a lot to us!23 votes
Support for keyboards
If you had the ability to utilize an attached keyboard on the iPad it would enable there to be a cohesion in learning shortcuts and there would be less of a learning curve between the two versions of the software, as well as enhancing the iPad software itself.23 votes
Almost all features in Ai on iPad now have keyboard support.
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.21 votes

Would be great if you could get inspired by Procreate functions and workflow
I love Illustrator on the PC and Procreate on the iPad. Procreate has lots of nice features that I would like to be seen in Illustrator for iPad, like how you use one or two fingers on the screen to control different things, selection tools etc...21 votes
