The Eydropper tool is showing up under the Charts and Graphs menu in the Tools panel. The hotkey still functions and I use that instead. I've never had this issue, so I don't know if there's a way to customize or move it back to where it should be.
I also feel like the Selection tool should still be in the top left corner, since it is really the go-to selection tool. Not sure if this is a bug or not. I really don't understand what the Group Selection tool does, seems to do the same thing as Selection.
Free Transform tool seems out of place under the Puppet Warp tool. I think Free Transform should be on top.
@neha Jha: When the tool pallet has been reset, for example, I'll select the Selection Tool, work on my doc, and when I return to the tool pallet it'll be in a new location, then as I work on the doc the tools jostle around, sometimes hiding under type tools. Its extremely annoying to have to guess where the tools will be next. Suggested update: adding a lock to freeze the tool pallet.

Having the same problem but only on one of our Macs. It's the same Mac that's also having the out of memory preview problem that a LOT of people seem to be having so may be related.

Could you please tell us what are the actions that you are taking while working on illustrator? Have you dragged any tool in toolbar? The tools in the toolbar panel are now movable.

Please include an option to lock the bar, serious PITA.
Happened to me with the same thing, I need to re-arrange my toolbar every time when it shifting randomly. I've also updated the new MacOS Mojave.
I am having this exact problem too, soo annoying to have to keep resetting it. After moving from CS5.5 now to CC2019 and paying a premium for this software, I expect Adobe to have their software in top working order, not go backwards with these kinds of bugs when it worked perfect in CS5.5.
Please fix, I never thought this would be an issue. It negates the great idea,

I've just downloaded the new Illustrator 2019 (v. 23.0) with new macOS Mojave. I've faced a new bug i believe in the new illustrator which the left toolbar icons will randomly shifted here into other icon or out from other icon occasionally while i am using the program. Are you able to solve the issue?
I fully agree with that opinion.
Yes please. This is really slowing down my work flow.
I agree too! I moved tool icons unintentionally during the operation. Tool icons should be able to move only during tool bar customization.

Agreed! Lock the tools in place... I don't need any more grey hairs.
Same thing is happening to me
This is also happening to me and very annoying. My tools are moving around everywhere, everyday since 2019 Update. Randomly seemingly.

I sure hope Adobe fixes this as it is SUPER annoying to have to reset the standard toolbar every time I use a tool. Icons seem to move on their own after they are selected, often winding up in strange places.
have to reset every 5 minutes!!!!!!!!!
