Properties Panel
It does not make me the faster because Shortkeys for years I use is the better way, many options are available in those particular panels for each or individual usage according to work and in the control bar quickly those could be used well, that is much better.
yeah another good suggestion which is for Control panel, few useable options in property panel could be attached in Control Bar and then this panel would be better than it should be converted into Tools' Properties because many users do not know that many tools can be modified by double-clicking on it, and most people who know there is setting are not going to tool's preference when they work quickly


Tool's Properties Panel
is required to set the desired settings and modification of the selected/working tool
it's properties like properties panel in Adobe Illustrator.

 

Free Transform Tool
It has it's own Properties or Kinds or Maybe other ways to transform which show through the icons (Perspective Distor, Free Distort, Constrain) which can be used in Tools Properties Panel

 

Simplify option found in the Object Menu inside the Path
that has much improved in CC 2020 by adding new Auto and other features in the Menu, and it works Illogically, now it should become the Tool instead of Option in the Menu as it has its own properties. (Auto Simplify could be the Tool Icon)

 

Corners, Show/Hide Handles for Multiple Selection of Anchor Points and Convert: Selected Anchor Point to Smooth and Corner must be added in the Menu because if someone does not use the Control Bar then that option could be available in the Menu.


Note: A Feature that can be used by any Tool or Panel which is most common (like Fill & Stroke), that should not be active in the Control and in Properties Panels,


Blend Options
When I wrote Illustrator features in the forumAdobe.com I mentioned that Blend Options and other features of Blend Menu should be added in the Control Bar when a blended object is selected.

 

Live Paint

Live Paint Merge Feature and other Option for Live Paint, are must be attached in the Control Bar instead of Properties Panel when working with Live Paint Objects because it does not work logically.

 

Start Global Edit
Start Global Editing feature can be adjusted in the Majic Want tool's Menu and in the Control Bar if Properties Panel would be converted into Tool's Properties Panel

 

Anchor Point conversion to corner/smooth, cut path/remove selected anchor point, corner and width Profiles are the required for Designers daily work, those things are mostly used from the Control bar which is the fastest way, and a designer always needs to use Control Bar which can not be provided with all those options by the properties Panel.


Keyboard increment settings must be added in the selection, Direct Selection, Group Selection Tool (Arrows) and should be removed from Preferences in General tab,

 

Constrain Angle settings should be inside of the Basic Shapes like rectangle set etc. dialogues.

 

Alignment options/icons in the Control Bar
Alignment options/icons in the control bar are working in a stupid way because when you select few objects and then you choose the key object by clicking again on from selected objects to align others according to the key object, and then you do not have other options like Horizontal & Vertical Distribution space and the text box where you dial the specific measurements of Space between objects to align according to the key object, instead, you see other redundant features/options in the control bar
which you do not use (Like Fill, Stroke and its Width Profiles Opacity and Graphic Style, etc.) after selecting the key object.


Adobe illustrator should be able to change the above features in the Control Bar.
every time for those options every designer uses/opens the alignment panel when he selects the key object which is really annoying.
Unfortunately, this feature must have been added before/earlier versions of Illustrator, and still in CC 2020 we have these useless features in the control bar.

 

Layers Panel
Holding or pressing the Control key and clicking on a new layer icon in Photoshop to creates a new layer below all the layers if no layer is selected, if a layer is selected then you do the same action will create a new layer below the selected layer which really makes sense.
The same thing would be very comfortable in Illustrator if that feature would be added in the Layers and Appearance Panel.

 

Right-Click Menu on Objects Options
There should be an existence of Global Edit and Copy and Paste are the basic features, common and essential which are missing since beginning...!

 

When Text Object is selected by Arrows.

You select the Text by using Arrows/Selection Tools you have good options in the Right Click's menu like spell checking which is logical according to selection.
that would be better if it will be added in Control Bar by replacing redundant Features Like Fill and Stroke which can be used by Panels and Tool Bar.

Hi there,

 

Thank you so much for sharing these suggestions. I have passed on this list to our Product team and they're looking into it. It would be really great if you could post this on our UserVoice page (link shared by Monika) and paste the UserVoice link here. This way other like minded users can also upvote on it. 

 

Regards,

Srishti
