Customize Transparency Grid Size and Color...
It would be nice to customize the transparency grid's color and relative size.
It is possible to do in Illustrator as well — not in Preferences, but in File > Document Setup dialog (Cmd/Ctrl + Alt +P) — because these settings are local for a document and not global. Same exact controls.
As someone with a sight divergence, the standard grid is very difficult to look at. My eyes have a difficult time reconciling such a small repeating pattern.
Photoshop (also created by Adobe) does it very well. Why is this option is not also the norm for Illustrator?
I don't think it would be just nice. It's about f'in time for an option like that! That's another feature where Adobe just loses hard to competitors - whom they still are not afraid of, I suppose. Otherwise nobody would need to post a request like that.
For every artist the grid in the background is totally useless and in the front it's just a big annoying distraction when you just want to see the edge of your shapes. Not even the default shortcut works in german Ai so you have to make a new one to be able to switch it on and off constantly!
Please give us a transparency control for the grid, yesterday.
