  1. Can we get a tiny tick or indicator when our idea/wishlist has been read by an official Adobe representative?

    A bit outside these forums but...

    THe thing I struggle with regarding large software companies is the sheer facelessness and uncaring of the companies.

    I separate the companies from the people working from them. I expect that many of the people working for these companies care to some level.

    But the effect of large companies is a monolithic uncaringness, and Adobe is right at the top of those companies.

    IN this particular forum, it would help GREATLY our sense of someone caring even a little if our comments showed a little tick or something when they have been read by…

  2. Web Page Listing Current Log Ins

    Improve account.adobe.com to provide a list of computers that your account is currently being used to license, and the ability to deactivate those licenses. This is currently not possible without trying to log into the Creative Cloud application on a third computer. This functionality is available with other similar SAAS such as Microsoft Office.

  3. Please just get rid of the bot assistant on the Adobe help pages?

    I realise this is rather outside the point of this area.

    But in my experience the Automatic Support Assistant AI thing is worse than useless. It's of no help in anyway. It NEVER has suggested anything useful. IT just creates more aggravation and frustration.

    JUst replace it with a couple of slightly targeted pages about what we are looking for. WE're going to have to get to a person anyway, so at least give the poor support techs a leg up with a bit of information, and a client who is not already annoyed ay having to get past a…

  4. UBUNTU/GNU/LINUX

    You could make Creative Cloud compatible with UBUNTU/LINUX and another one free operating system.

  5. Make XD useful in production workflow

    Are there any plans to integrate XD into a real production workflow? I thought that would be the goal when XD was released, but it continues to simply be a "closed loop" system.

    We've been using Photoshop/Illustrator/Dreamweaver/InDesign (less so)/Muse (ugh!) to make websites and apps for quite a while now, but this is inefficient to say the least. Photoshop isn't well suited to variable width (non-pixel-perfect) design, Illustrator is not great at interactivity, InDesign is simply not designed for digital publishing (imo), and Muse....oh Muse (ugh, again).

    I feel like XD could be used to build an interface and export…

  6. DOUBLE CLICK TO RESET THE SLIDERS

    Premiere Pro has an option to reset the sliders of Lumetri Color when you hit twice on them.

    Your developing team could add this functionality to all the sliders of all the effects of all the Adobe video & audio apps.

    It could be awesome ;)

    TKS, Adobe

  7. MORE VFX FUNCTIONALITIES

    After Effects is really fantastic to create motion graphics, but maybe it should be better for creating cinematography visual effects as Nuke or Fusion.

    Maybe this could be possible if your team developes tools for VFX, like #ProjectFastMask, #ProjectCloak, a remarkable improvement of the CINEWARE effect or accelerates the Cycore effects of After Effects.

    TKS ;)

  8. Add OFX support for true cross-platform/cross-software workflows

    Cross-application/cross-software support should not be limited to Adobe products but include third-party software, too, such as DaVinci, etc. As such, what would be great is if all these tools could start conforming to a common standard when it comes to effects so that effects can be properly accessed across software and only require one set of binaries per effect that are then shared. This would also ensure that an effect wasn't translated into another vendor's effect that then may have a different implementation and may cause visual and/or audible differences.

    One such possibility would be to finally start including OFX…

  9. Node-based editing

    Layers provide a very inflexible two-dimensional editing paradigm and isn't very conducive to sharing data within a project. Instead of simply allowing node-based editing, Adobe appear to invite their own hacks such as Smart Objects for Photoshop, for example, but these still feel clunky to work with and still don't offer the flexibility that nodes do.

    What is needed is an alternative view that is node-based an allows data to flow any way a user wants and without data duplication. This should be optional workflow within all Adobe tools, but at least in Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere Pro, and even…

  10. FINER ZOOM

    You could add a finer zoom in the viewport, such as in Photoshop or Illustrator.

  11. IMPROVE MASTER PROPERTIES (GENERAL NON DESTRUCTIVE WORKFLOW)

    After Effects has great options for realizing a non destructive workflow, but when you have many layers, it is difficult for you to maintain a certain order. The new master properties are great for resolving that and for having a even more non destructive workflow.

    On the other hand master properties should improve a lot if they want to be as useful as node based workflow.

    ADOBE, you could use both layer based and node based workflows. Cinema 4D has this kind of combination. I think the best workflow is use the bests of both two worlds....

    Or maybe not,…

  12. After Effects Project window in Premiere

    Would love to open an optional dockable window in Premiere that reflected the selected After Effects project.

    Instead of opening the After Effects project, or dragging items over this would be docked in Prmiere for quick access.

    You could select what you needed and brought it into the source monitor.

    You would be able to drag and drop into the timeline.

    Lock folder structure in the After Effects Projects window.

    Also, would potentially help clear RAM if After Effects didn't have to be open in the BG.

  14. BACKSPACE BUTTON NEXT TO THE PLAY BUTTON

    Premiere Pro, After Effects, Character Animator and Audition should have this button, as Cinema 4D has. It's a great tool to do an inverted reproduction.

  18. MORE TABLET FRIENDLY

    You could (and you should) be more tablet friendly. Please, improve the compatibility of your softwares (Photoshop, Audition, Premiere, After Effects, Illustrator...etc.) with the different graphic tablet companies (WACOM, HUION...etc.).

    For example I CAN'T drag a layer into another composition using my HUION graphic tablet in After Effects.

    Thank You. You can be the best multimedia software developer in the world.

  20. PROCEDURAL WORKFLOW

    Creative Cloud apps need to have a more procedural workflow, for example, improve the master properties are a great way.
