3 Things I'm hoping to see in Illustrator CS6

1. Better Circle Algorithm

See Marc Edwards' article at


2. Gradient Dithering

Photoshop is finally able to dither gradient layer styles so it can't be that far fetched. Again, Marc outlines this in his article.


3. Inner Shadows

Although I have fine tuned my workarounds to the Nth degree, it's still not as simple as photoshop. 1a would be to have the drop shadow setting produce the same result as Photoshop when using pixel measurements.


These 3 features plus the new pattern editor would (in my opinion) make Illustrator the best UI design tool currently available.

    CS6 is done. Not sure why we need yet another thread about it... Anything not listed on the product pages just isn't there. That's the long and short of it.

    No. None of these are part of CS6.
