Illustraitor - Artboard Free Rotation
It would be great to be able to FREELY (not via manualy punching in numbers) rotate the Canvas in the same way you can do it in Photoshop. When you select the Rotation tool you can just freely rotate the whole work area/canvas/art-board along with all the content on it. This way drawing some lines that are in a difficult angle will be much easier. After you are done just like in Photoshop when the Rotation tool is selected pressing the ESC button will re-rotate everything to the original position

And to reply at the previous comment, yes Clip Studio Paint is great. Cool vector brushes
and OBVIOUSLY the possibility to freely rotate artboard. Personnaly I use it to compense the lacks of Illustrator, but the problem is that one can NOT export work in a vector mode (ai, svg, eps...) No way. Vector drawing in CSP will stay vector mode only in CSP. Let's hope Adobe guys will provide to illustrators the tool they need (and that they pay for) before the world ends...

Adobe does not have the honesty to admit frankly that their Illustrator software is so badly designed at the base, that today they do NOT have the technical possibility to implement this rotate artboard function, however essential to illustrators... They still prefer to appear for people contemptuous of the needs of their customers...
OK Adobe... But in that event, provide at least your customers with another tool, even basic, which can allow us to draw freely in vector mode with a drawing tablet ... A mini software with just the functions necessary for drawing AND THEREFORE the possibility to rotate the artboard.
I would use Illustrator more if it had this. I like to do my hand-drawn inking on my Wacom Cintiq. Our wrists are made to arc one direction. It is incredibly important to be able to rotate and quickly reset the screen. This has been requested for years. I can't understand why it has not bee implemented. If you can't wait for Illustrator to incorporate the functionality, I recommend using Clip Studio Paint. They have vector brushes and screen rotation. But the user interface isn't as nice as Adobe's.

Still, having numerical control over artboard rotation would be nice.
