  2. Symbols, Symbol sprayer, sizer, and other symbol tools

    Symbols in general are very useful, but especially the symbol tools could benefit from the Apple Pencil greatly, helping in making things such as starry skies or simple textures quickly, easily, and with the precise paths and shapes one may want for those textures or stars. It would also make the iPad illustration process a bit more procedural while remaining intuitive.

  4. Better guides for pen tool. Make 90º lines easier

    Make 90º lines easier. Only straight lines option like in affinity designer. This is fundamental for any work that is symetric basically!

  5. Trackpad / Mouse Panning Function

    The current panning function is only possible for touch with 2 fingers.
    Would be really nice to have a panning function or tools like the desktop version when used on desktop mode (using ipad with external keyboard & mouse/trackpad)

  7. I’d love image trace and the ability to warp text

    I don’t use a desktop only my iPad so I can create on the go. In my opinion there’s no reason to pay for illustrator on my iPad when it doesn’t have key features like the ability to warp text and image trace.

  9. Turn off rotate canvas

    Turn off rotate canvas... as in, I want to be able to turn my iPad upside down and not have the canvas move. (is there a way to lock it and I've missed it?)

  14. Restore anchor point long hold to delete anchor points.

    Previously, when performing a long press with the direct select tool on an anchor point, it would delete that anchor point. Using the "delete anchor point" button on the floating menu is now the only option, but the long press method is just simpler and saves a lot of effort. A nice way to restore this option is to have it as a feature that you can turn on/off in prefrences.

  15. Touch Modifier to Constrain Handles to 90º or 45º

    It’d shave off a lot of time and make my workflow smoother to be able to use a touch modifier (like what’s currently in the bottom left hand corner) to constrain the handles to perfectly horizontal, vertical, or diagonal angles, much like holding shift would do on the desktop version.

  16. Shape builder tool on illustrator for iPad

    I really miss the shape builder tool on my illustrator for iPad. That is the most used tool on my desktop version of illustrator. Please bring it into iPad version too.

  18. Hello, there is a problem in writing in Arabic. Please support the correct writing of the Arabic language in the next update. Thanks

    The letters are written separately from each other, and it is correct in the Arabic language that the letters are written connected to each other

  20. Ability to Open Multiple Documents to Copy & Paste Between Them

    I have various assets I've created and I often want to copy part of one over to something new I'm creating, and yet I can't open multiple documents to be able to copy and paste between them. For example, I want to use a portion of a graphic in another new graphic I'm creating, and I want to open the existing one, ungroup the items, select the part I want and copy and paste it over into the new document. I can paste the original item, but it pulls in grouped together as one image so I can't grab just…
