New Customizable Toolbar need a way to Lock
Customizable toolbar absolutely needs to have a way of locking it!
We have the fix available in the latest release. Please update Illustrator using Adobe Creative Cloud application to the latest build for version Illustrator CC 23.0.2
1. You will have to reset your toolbar once if it is already disturbed. refer to this knowledge base to see how you can reset – https://illustrator.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1900963
2. What we have fixed is the tool bar is no longer editable as long as it is not in the toolbar edit mode

Adobe. Make It an Experience.
For the french version, there is no more than 23.0 (64 bit).
Your fixing announce was feb 12, we are mar 18.
So, what Adobe will do ?
Thank you !
Why the **** have you done this..? There was no need. Tools move every ten minutes!!!!! This is joke Adobe.
It took 2 updates to fix this? Really? Here's a tip to improve Illustrator. Stop screwing with standardized processes that have been used for decades. We don't need to retrain every time an update comes out.
Thank you Adobe for fixing this, but unfortunately, I have problems installing the update. See https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-bugs/suggestions/32283790-illustrator-cc-2018-error-code-145-during-update
It's not completely clear, but as the Adobe Engineer points out, you must upgrade to Illustrator CC 23.0.2. There are no steps after that (the upgrade itself is the fix). What is not clear is if we should reset the toolbar FIRST, then upgrade to 23.0.2 or if you can reset after upgrading. I would reset first then do the upgrade.
NOTE: Check your version of Illustrator. I was stuck in Illustrator CC 23.0.1 and figured Creative Cloud had upgraded. Turns out there was a totally separate issue with Creative Cloud not upgrading. A call to Adobe fixed that. As soon as I went from Illustrator CC 23.0.1 to 20.0.2 no more spastic toolbar.
How do I take toolbar out of edit mode please anyone???
Yup same. Really annoying and time consuming ... ANY FIXES??
Lately, every time I use illustrator, even though I'm not closing it out every day, it keeps rearranging my tools in my toolbar, lumping them in with random tools that are not related to them and putting them in different orders. This has become extremely frustrating and is making my work inefficient. Half the time, I can't find my tools because they're hidden in a group with other random tools and not where they were the previous day.
How do you lock the tool bar?? No where do you explain how to fix this very stupid issue.
having to reset my toolbar every 15 minutes is not a fix.. how do you lock the toolbar?

Thank you for fixing this issue. I realize this is a very slight change, but clearly related to all the changes made to the toolbar, I noticed between CC 2018 & 2019, the delay for clicking + holding a tool in the toolbar has at least doubled in the amount of time it takes for all the available options to load. I've included a basic comp of the time differences between the two. Mouse-clicks happen at the same time in this video: https://vimeo.com/318794696
The idea of a fix to this "feature" is wonderful. Too bad Adobe has already taught me to fear updates. Sure, might fix this issue- but another huge and destructive bug or poorly planned addition will almost certainly de-rail all progress and ability to use the program until we all spend hours searching for solutions and submitting complaints and a fix finally arrives weeks later. I'm sick of this pattern and I don't trust Adobe at all anymore.
This is driving me NUTS - tools are hiding all over the place - ARRGGGGHH
I have a ratherlarge display and had pulled my needed tools out of the flyout to have their own spot. Now they are pushed back into each other. Can we not edit the tool bar anymore?
Here is a bright idea, how about you tell us how to take the toolbar out of edit mode? I don't see that anywhere.... Thats the fix right? Congrats on still having a job. Your are AMAZING.
Adobe near thought of this stupid tool bar editing decision became a disaster like this, hope they will learn from this lesson, try to think and work as a user point of view.
Love this new Adobe game - Find my ******* square tool again. **** your deadline mate, Im hunting for a circle.
I do not have this update available. I have forced it to check and it says no updates.
