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 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.
