Can you please make available the option to customize the MacBook Pro Touch Bar in Adobe Illustrator. The new MacBook Pro Touch Bar is very useful and handy. The shortcuts that I can use with the Touch Bar save me a lot of time.
Why on earth Illustrator still doesn't allow for Mac users to customize or use the TouchBar is mind boggling. It works on Photoshop, so why not Illustrator?
It's as if the people at Adobe don't even use their own products. If they did they'd realize long ago that this doesn't work and needs addressing. The same could be said about a dozen of other bugs and oversights that I've been told were being looked into, yet months and years go by and the problems remain. Adobe has become a joke of a company. They don't care about their customers.

Absolutely agreed. Photoshop has this functionality. Illustrator needs it ASAP to justify the monthly costs.
Apple Sidecar + Touch Bar
Working with illustrator, using Apple SideCar on an iPad screen is a nice idea.
However, the basic bar is missing from the Touch Bar
e.g. When working with Pen, Curvature, Pencil
Why does Adobe not use these instruments?
Months after informing an Adobe rep of the touchbar issue (not being visible in Illustrator), yet still no update. You can see my original comment below as proof. Doesn't surprise me considering there were over a dozen of other bugs I shared that haven't been addressed. Adobe's customer support has become a complete joke.
Discussed the same bugs a couple of weeks ago with another rep. Still waiting for a reply and ultimate fix. Not holding my breath. Adobe. How many people need to complain before something gets addressed? How can I experience so many issues with your software, yet dozens of your employees can't? I've experienced issues on more than one computer, brand new out of the box computers, through various Adobe updates, clean installations, etc. So it's not something on my end.
Not sure why Photoshop allows TouchBar customization yet not Illustrator. Please allow this functionality. I am currently speaking with an Adobe rep who mentioned he'd be forwarding this feature request. Hopefully it will be implemented.

Major +1 from me. It should be possible to pin any menu item, or tool, or action to the Touch Bar.
This is something I hope they can add in the near future, Photoshop has a flip horizontal / vertical feature + layerstyles tab that I could efficiently use as well in Illustrator

I look forward to this.
