Add a button to save presets like Photoshop has.
Photoshop has a button to save presets when you create a new document. I love that feature makes my job easier, I wish Illustrator had that same button instead of having to save the files as templates. So much simpler and faster with the button right there.

I think it would greatly increase workflow to give the user the ability to set up custom blank document preset tabs on the New Document screen and then allowing the user to save their template/s of choice under their new tab.
As an example, I am constantly using the same templates in my company, so having the ability to create a preset tab where I could see only the presets/templates I use for that would be awesome. And then I could have another tab devoted to just my personal presets/templates, without having to navigate to the templates folder.
Is it possible to let us create personalized tabs in the new document window (beside recent, saved, mobile, web, print, film&video, art&illustratio) and let us create custom templates that we can save under those tabs. Also those templates to be saved on creative cloud so we can access them from multiple PC trough our account?
It will speed up our workflow and save a lot of time. Less file management and more focusing on our work

I work at a state university in the US. I don't have control over my permissions on my machine. I don't have admin privileges. I can't access the folder necessary to do the workaround. InDesign and Photoshop both have a button next to the document title field you can click to make a preset instantly. I don't understand how this doesn't have more votes either. It's so simple and useful.
Yes definitely. It seems like such a simple and essential feature I don't understand why it isn't already part of Illustrator.
Need a way to save custom user presets in illustrator.
It's baffling that Illustrator has no way to let us save our own presets in its "fancy" and "new" New Document interface. I, as a designer, know far better than anyone else what settings I regularly need for new documents..
As it is, I either have to re-enter the dimensions, color settings, etc. every time I want a specific layout, OR I have to go digging through my files for my custom templates.
Just let me save my **** presets, Adobe. Why is this so hard?
Would love this as well. The ui is very similar so I was surprised to see Photoshop have this and yet illustrator has this simple functionality missing.
