I guess this essential option could be very very useful when create symmetry/clone based art. The idea is pretty simple - apply Cloner Adjustment Layer Filter to any Layer or Group, choose clone mode, choose amount of copies and other parameters.
Here is video Example how cloner tool works in Cinema 4D. Love to see some similar tool in PhotoLine in 2D space: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NmyqkZBDkg
I asked for this exact same feature (and referred to C4D as well, I believe) many years ago. :D

When i noticed that there is a Page Curl effect in PhotoLine i was really happy. But in reality it appears totally useless and produce low quality and very limited results. In designer's work there are a lot of situations when quick nice looking "classic" Page Curl effect required. This may save a lot of manual work.
As i know there are not too many external plug-ins exists for this effect. The most popular is AV Bros. Page Curl Pro http://www.avbros.com/english/pagecurlpro/index.html But it is very outdated, formally Windows only (only support legacy 32 bit version on macOS) And also UI is very confused:

I guess PhotoLine have all required sources for this effect (Distort, 3D lighting, nondestructive editing), so maybe it is possible somehow in future to improve or redesign Page Curl effect to make final result look more friendly? Like this:

Currently it is only possible to create objects like these with applied outside outline with round joins, next use Vector->Vector Outline and next delete internal points. Not too convenient way to go.
you can create such forms with the Vector Star Tool

Request/Idea: "Apply in Linear gamma" toggle in Scale/Rotate dialog.
Currently it is possible to process Scale/Rotate in Linear gamma, but only in non-automated way:
- Convert original sRGB image to sRGB color space with Linear gamma.
- Scale/Rotate
- Convert back to original sRGB color space with sRGB TRC.

Linear gamma is perfect for image downscaling. Some advantages described in 'Gamma error in picture scaling" http://www.ericbrasseur.org/gamma.html and many other similar articles.
Here are some tests with images taken from https://sourceforge.net/projects/testimages/files/

scaled from 1200x1200 to 300x300 with Bicubic in Linear gamma:

Request/Idea: Convert with Color Profile tool specially for Color Swatches samples.
This little menu tool will help to preserve the appearance of saved color swatches samples when image converted from one ICC profile to another.

Here is step by step concept:

- Right click on color in Color Editor or multiple selected color samples in Color List.
- Click on menu item "Convert with Color Profile"
- "Convert with Color Profile" pop-up window appears.
- Select ICC profile "From"
- Select ICC profile "To"
- Click OK

- Color coordinates now changed, but visual appearance of the color sample remains the same.

Example sketch:

Request for Squircle (also named as Superellipse) vector shape tool. Guess this could be an optional "Superellipse" slider (or checkbox?) in current Rounded Rectangle tool.
This sort of shape used in iOS icons. Also may be useful when need to draw something like vintage CRT TV screen shape. Some info and formula here:

Request/Idea for new type of gradient that can follow vector object path and look the same as Layer Style Shadow Outside/Inside. Formally it could be named as "Vector Shadow Inside/Outside"
Here is explanation of pros and cons of current existing tools:
