    I predict like the snapping bug you'll all have to wait another 5 years until this issue is addressed. Whether it's fully fixed is another matter all together though. Just saying.

    Remember Ai is a vector program so there shouldn't be ANY snapping issues with anchor or paths EVER. But there is, it's OVER six years old now and you know exactly what the problem is since I showed you it in person. That needs to be fixed. A so-called pro application that can't do simple elementary snapping at times is not PRO behavior. Neither is releasing asset export half-baked and not responding to users in this thread. You know what would help, having an actual pro user working with your team on a daily basis to isolate and help you fix all these issues instead of focusing merely on more feature bloat. Improve and fix the many tools and features you've released that are not refined. Another example: Free-Form Gradient tool, won't work on compound shapes? Who was the brilliant one to let that get through?

    The whole concept of a clipping mask it prevent content from showing visually. That is why we masked it out. So why is your code saying "Eh, forget your mask we're going to include the stuff you can't see." Of course if they had real-world beta testing this bug would have been caught before they released another half-baked feature.

    Every MAX they tout the power of Adobe Sensei and the so-called magical machine learning abilities. Look at how it can smart remove this stuff in a video at real-time. Yet none of that can solve this?

    Nope. When I asked an engineer about this several months back in person they acted like it was really hard? Like I was requesting them to program a worm hole to a parallel universe kind of hard? Than again they can't figure out canvas rotate yet either, they've tried and failed three times. Something about not being able to get raster effects to rotate or something.

    I remember when masked items screwed up alignment because it would consider the unseen masked content. They seemed to have solved that which seems like a similar problem to this?

    Don't hold your breath though. They still have a basic fundamental snapping bug in Ai that they never fully fixed. How about this as an Ai Team strategy. Forego any new features until all major bugs are completely resolved and killed off. If that takes two years so be it. This includes stability too, Ai still crashes way too much.

    It's only been two years. Took them 4+ years to address the snapping bug and they still haven't fully fixed that one either because it still happens where even if smart guides is turned on it won't detect anchors or paths and act like nothing is there. Happens a lot of converted type to paths too. So in that respect the creative process has been held ******* now for 6 years because of sloppy development. So 2 years is nothing.

    I do want to say this because in my haste to answer a question and respond to a user struggling with Ai I do want to make something clear. In no way should Adobe merely copy another companies IP functionality. But they could certainly address this type of building in their own intuitive way and implement it to make the whole process of creating vector art easier natively. I should have clarified that better, I didn't so I apologize for any confusion.

    Like most tools in Adobe Illustrator many are released and never touched again or improved upon. The ellipse tool would be great with this functionality and the line segment tool which I almost never use would become very useful with this feature. Come on engineers, you know this because I showed you both methods in New Delhi.

    This once again proves the flaw of Adobe beta testing methodology. Meaning they need real-world beta testing because the would have been caught almost immediately before public release. Reading the comments by engineers is not very encouraging. This is basic work flow 101 for Ai. Losing it doesn't seem huge until you lose it and it immediately becomes a pain. This also seems to be happening in Photoshop too so the problem is systemic in that regard. Originally posted in 2017 yet still happening in 2019 only shows how lethargic their attention to detail is regarding development. I won't hold my breath.

    An app shouldn't second guess the user and that is what Ai does too often. If the Ai team wants to have the app by default round to cater to noobs fine. But give pro users a pref setting we can check to turn it off and take what ever number we input. Digital is suppose to be exact, precise. If a vendor asks for a file to be 3.6785 than that is what I want to input and I don't need Ai being a design nanny and acting as if it knows better. It's highly Ainnoying. Who ever made this decision obviously did not keep a pro user in mind.

    Adobe Ai team has already ripped of features from Astute Graphics because they implement functions better than Adobes own engineers do.

    But even their rip offs fall short like the corner widget, it sucks and the can easily be triggered accidentally when trying to select an anchor point. Astutes dynamic corners tool never gets in the way and is more intuitive.

    Overall ease of base vector building, editing, and selection has deteriorated a lot since CC kicked in.

    Smart guides are not very smart and you have to constantly toggle them on/off in order to select things at times. Other times you have to zoom in to select otherwise it becomes impossible.

    The main problem with Ai development is no one on their team creates with the software they develop.

    Their agenda is driven by another team called ‘The Monetary Marketing Team’ that insists on more features that tie into creative cloud and or Adobe Stock. It’s all about migrating people off stand alone apps and onto their subscription model to get that monthly pound of flesh.

    Adobe said at MAX 2016 that Ai user base for the first time in 25 years is larger than Photoshop yet their team for Ai is the the keystone cops of development. Sloppy development means you wait years for a bug fix and they love to release a feature half-baked then never return to it and improve it. Brushes in Ai fall into this category.
