- 1. INNER SHADOW is necessary.
- 2. FREE DISTORT : It should have center point like path so that we can select center point to select complete object & can move it point by point with ARROW keys, & also could be select able any point/corner/angle & can move that point/corner/angle with Arrow Keys
- 3. FEATHER BRUSH TOOL : If we have applied FEATHER EFFECT on any path or object after applying FEATHER EFFECT, use the FEATHER BRUSH TOOL to lessen the softness of object's/path's any side by pressing ALT KEY and without ALT KEY it should intensify the softness of the object's/path's any side & also center, Feather Brush Tool's pressure setting should be included in brush preferences.
- 4. ILLUSTRATOR is incomplete without BAR CODE tool/Panel for press/print able graphics.
5.LIVE MESH GROUP, Mesh tool should work like live paint group ( I mean create all lines with Pen/brush/pencil tools then convert those lines into Live mesh group that option will be new in CS6 in Object menu under the live paint group so that people can understand & use mesh easily & fast for saving time ).
- 6 . PANEL ICONS Should be Attached under or above the tool Bar but not on Right or Left Side only ( like Indeign CS2 ).
- 7. EFFECT, GRAPHICS STYLE, BRUSH style/type, Object's/Path's width & Height percent % & SYMBOL option should be included in MAGIC WAND PANEL under the blending mode & also under the select menu in same's sub menu.
- 9. Angled Gradient should be included Gradient Panel. & also global Gradient swatch should be made.
- 10. Appearance Panel ( Add New Text & Add New Symbol options should be included in sub menu under the Add New Fill & Add New Stroke ), Text ( fonts ) should be Changeable & effects can be used on text & symbols.
- 11. Animals, Fruit, Plants & Flowers Clipart in symbols Library should be included in CS6,
& Pockets Dies' Templates also in template folder.
- 12. SAVE PRESET should be included in new document dialog box.
- 13. FONT MENU view should be Large with Slider like Photoshop so that we can save our time more for selection of fonts up & down fast,
also this facility should be in the control bar like photoshop.
- 14. 5 last Effects should be placed in the recent list of applied last effects.
- 15. Dashed Line stroke should be converted into dashed guide line.
- 16. Transparency Mask should be apply able to every fill or stroke of single path's appearance in appearence panel.
- 17. Update the 3d Effects for Illustrator CS6, Here are my recommendations or new Ideas. When we apply 3d Extrude on text/compound path it gives good result but not perfect, for example when we use globe light on the top 90 degree of O (letter) (O is also compound path) on the top of O light reflects but its Top's shadow should be on its own bottom's top inside of O's which is donut or hole's bottom's top or inside of O's cut of circle inside which is transparent. perspective shadow is also necessary its additional option for shadow of Object's. there must be check box included for applying shadow & also shadow setting (preferences) should be Linked with the 3D Object's own shadow, we could change only its perspective setting so that we could scale/skew the shadow & also we could apply blur & transparency from one side to an other side like gradient to its shadow & also we could give transparency any side of shadow like gradient, these are the preferences for perspective shadow, Shadow depends the direction of light, therefore I already wrote shadow setting (preferences) should be Linked with the 3D Object's own shadow, Reflection option is not necessary it will make it too much heavy reflection can be made by using FREE DISTORT, also we could open symbol libarary in the map art dilouge & any symbol we could apply.
- Example of 3D's Shadow.
for big preview open this pic in new tab OR
- 18.Illustrator should not show other programs' font, Those fonts can't be usable in illustrator. just like Inpage professional & Kelk2000/2010 etc, or this option should be in preferences under type, select those fonts & turn on the check box for don't show these fonts again in fonts menu list. & if you can include find font menu like Indesign this will be the best.
- 19. Eye Dropper Tool:- This tool sucks only gradients applied on the object but doesn’t suck the angle/direction of gradients applied on the object. If we have converted a text/single character in to the outline, then we have applied the gradient in different direction/angle, but now we want to apply same direction/angle and same gradient for other outlined texts, it applies only gradient of previous outlined text but not its direction/angle. I hope in the future version it will suck also the angle/direction.
to perserve the angle of gradient with Eyedropper Tool in future version of InDesign & Illustrator, there must be the check box provided for fill proportional ( on any path/object/outlined text ) which should be turn on as default.
- 20. And the direction/angle of the gradient in swatches panel must remain same.
- 21. In the Print Dialog in [ General ] options Do not Scale/Fit to page/Custom Scale, if you chose any option you will apply that option for all art boards, but what about those art board on which you don't want to apply/chose another option, you should create check box for ( All Art Boards ) & for also Marks & Bleed section etc. If any person want to change the setting of any Art board that person will be able,
- 22. If we create more Art bords in canvas it shows this messege
Can not create Artboad out side of the canvase. Please rearrange & try again. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ???????????
Why it shows this messege????
Arrange by row/colum, Gird by row/colum,
It should arrange by it self, in Future version.
- 23. When I grab Artboard Tool, in Artbord mode, we could be able to use Align panel for to align the artbords
& Rulers must be starts ( O ) zero from canvase upper left corner in artboard mode, (a). Align to selection (b). Align to Key Object ( for selected Artbord ) & there must be other option (c). Align (artbord) to canvas, & Vertical/Horizontal Distribute option must work, we could be able to make the group of artboards so that we could align select artboards at the center of canvas.
- 24. Placing Image
If we place Image in to Illustrator & that image has created by Illustrator, during the place it shows the Dialog ( Place PDF ) in this dialog there is option Crop to Art/Crop/Trim/Bleed/Media, you can choose any option but you will get only artbord size image, if we choose Art, it must place whole Art. From the Right side is Original Image with Art borad, & from Left side same Image is placed, & I have choosen crop to Art option during place. in future must Illustrator be able to crop the Art/Crop/Trim/Bleed/Media with their ( crop to options ) different sizes.
- 25. Width Tool should be able to work with Live Paint in future Version, it is the part of liquify section & its name is width Tool !!!!!!!!!!!
& it works with only stroke/applied brushes on strokes !!!!!!!!!!
Its name should be stroke width Tool.
- 26. Live paint bucket & shape builder should show Swatches' preview not from left & right only but also from Top & Bottom,
when press up or down arrows it jumps on groups, it shoud jump on the row by row.
- 27. Keyboard Shortcuts . I have started to work with illustrator in 2008, am using these shortcuts since CS3
for opacity 9 = 90% to 1 = 10%
For next Blend Mode ` ( Tilde ) & for previous Blend Mode ~ ( Shift Tilde )
these keys should be default in future version b/c these are really unuseful, make them useful.!
- 28. Groups & Groups : if we selects the group of objects in Ai it should shows group in controle bar & in apperiance pannel, but when we select groups ungrouped it sould show groups but not group in the control bar & in apperience pannel!!!
- 29. when Tranparency mask/path is selected its sholud show in control bar also transparency mask/path.
- 30. also with clipping mask selected, it should show in control bar & apperiance pannel clipping mask, may be this is group!!!! but we are selecting clipping mask mask.
- 31. perspective selection tool shuld be able to rotate the object.
- 32. paste in place is not working proper some times????? & some times key board shorcuts are not working it happens always since older versions, I suggets you to improve this problem.
- 33. Artboard mode = if you have selected artboard Tool in artboard mode & also u have many artboards in same documents, now you want to fit artboard to your art work in same artboard's art work if you choose that option from controle bar you will never get that that result that you want to get, you will get your artboard fit on the whole art work on your document, & even that artwork is in other artboards. Ai should not do that, in future version......
