Consistency in between Adobe Graphics Applications anyone?
This is a JDI and a MUST change in Illustrator: Unified Workspaces, Tools, Palettes, etc. and consistency in UI and UX Design across all Graphic Applications from Adobe. It is inacceptable to cross completely different approaches in every Applicaton. At least there must be accordance in basic and rudimentary use of Tools, Palettes and Commands. Otherwise get a life Illustrator Team, you suck since two decades. Nuff said.
KS I agree with your suggestion, a consistent experience makes great sense, and with that in mind perhaps you should have a look at the Affinity Suite.
However I disagree with your tone, surely if a customer spoke to you in this way you'd put their suggestion at the bottom of the pile.
