Illustrator (iPad) Feature Requests

  1. 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

  2. Free transform tool

    Include a free transform tool that can actually transform selected shapes, groups etc. Similar to the free transform distort option in photoshop. The bounding box should not revert back to a rectangular box though it should remain distorted. This will make it much easier to distort artwork etc. to map to a specific plane.

  4. Snap to Point

    Absolutely need the option to toggle on/off Snap to Point to enable the ability to drag an anchor point close to another and have it snap to that point.

  5. Please let us load .ai brushes

    I've purchased several .ai brushes over the years and would love to be able to use them on my iPad. I tried loading them but it seems that's not a feature that's available. I'd rather not have to repurchase a whole new set of brushes for the iPad version of Illustrator.

  8. Needs a join/trim tool

    When two endpoints are selected, a join/trim feature would be ideal to make the corners meet.

  12. Gradient Mesh

    Once after you add the necessary basic tools I would like to see that included,because it will be a big difference maker with your competitor affinity + it’s the reason why I want to use illustrator on my iPad and not buy a new PC

  13. DWG/DXF Export

    Being able to export these file types to local storage etc. would allow more opportunity for an iPad based workflow, rather than needing to jump back to the desktop version just for exporting

  16. 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? ;)

  18. 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.

  19. 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)
