  1. Make Illustrator for iPad and Adobe Library more pattern-friendly

    Editing and scaling patterns on the iPad is nearly impossible. Ist would be great if the options would be similar as in the desktop version, where scaling, editing, changing the colour of patterns etc. is with the swatches easily done.
    Also if patterns could be saved to the adobe library it would simplify the working process immensely.

  2. Pen line options

    It appears that the blob brush for Illustrator on the iPad has different stroke options (chisel, flat, round, etc.), whereas the pen tool only has a uniform line option at this time.
    Please add the different pen stroke types for the iPad! It was such a useful tool and allowed for great line variation!

  4. Measure length of paths

    I use Illustrator for landscape design. Using IPad for real-time designing in the field would really be an improvement. It would really be helpful to have a measurement tool or to see the length in the properties tab. The properties tab now only shows W, H, X, Y. Showing the length of a line would help!

  7. Swipe to select

    Being able to let touch-input (swipes) automatically switch it over to the selection tool, and have the use of the Apple Pencil always change it back to the previous tool.

Therefore, i hope adobe will help us to bring this feature to the iPad version as soon as possible. Many thanks

  9. Photoshop Effects

    When I add Photoshop Effects on Mac and then open the file on iPad I can't edit them or add them. If I move an object with an effect on it the effect goes away and won't come back even if you hit undo. I have accidentally moved an object and it lost the effect so I have to wait till I can go on my Mac to fix it.

  10. Incremental nudge

    The ability to nudge objects in any direction incrementally would be helpful to adjust the spacing accurately between objects, similar to using the cursor keys in the desktop version

  11. Please continue adding mouse/keyboard commands from the desktop version

    I’m loving where this is going... However, as a long-time illustrator user, I’m hoping more can be added to match the desktop version’s drawing speed.

    I’m missing these keyboard shortcuts:

    • Zoom in/zoom out keyboard command with the mouse click.
    • The ‘Bring to front/Send to back” keyboard command.
    • The “join points/average points” key command (cmnd-j)

    And while I love the ‘move point along line’ feature, by using the option key to enact it, we can’t change a corner-pull point as we can with the desktop version.

  13. Import AI files directly from desktop version to IpadOS version

    I want to work on the same AI file that I made on the desktop Adobe Illustrator on my IPAD. Currently, there is no cross-compatibility and I cannot import my .AI files. If there is, the compatibilty needs to be more noticable and import needs to be easier.

  14. We need good export options

    Not just more options, but the final size of the document, the quality, the color setting. I can’t count on a computer all the time, and when I export a pdf from Ipad Illustrator it’s way bigger than I need it, something that can have 250kb ends up exporting at 15MB. I literally have to export my document in AI format and then go to AFFINITY DESIGNER FOR IPAD if I want to have PROFESSIONAL exportation settings.

  19. Save to local storage/other options

    Ability to save files on the iPad´s local storage as well as other cloud services. Full integration with the Files app might be the way to go about this.

    In short, I don’t want Creative Cloud to be my only choice to save files.
