Do you guys have any plan for supporting .ai files in the future?

Support for AI files, specifically, is not on our roadmap but we're thinking about adding more vector file formats to Pixelmator Pro in the future.

Requesting this feature as well. I assumed this Pixelmator Pro Mac app store version would at least support Illustrator since it's vector like .SVG. Please consider.

Adding the support for the AI file format would certainly expand the possible workflows and it's possibly something we'll reconsider at some point down the line but now isn't exactly that time just yet. AI files, in general, are different from the standalone SVG or EPS vector formats. They are native to Adobe Illustrator and support Illustrator-specific features that Pixelmator Pro may not be able to read that easily. To implement AI, we'd need to add support for those features or at least find a way to make them readable in Pixelmator Pro. That's not to say the support can't be added but it would be quite tricky to do so.
