This bug has been reported for 2 weeks ... everyone is waiting for the fix !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Need a visual cue that the layer is set to not print.
Please bring back Italic for Non-Printing Layers.
As below. The italics make it easy to spot non-print layers at a glance.

I am on the very latest version of Illustrator and have just noticed that on layer options the 'visible' layers that are set 'not to print' are no longer marked in italic. Having those 'non-print' layers set as italic text was very useful. Now I can not be 100% sure what layers are actually print active.
Suggest going back to previous setup.

Please fix this ASAP... VERY important visual clue when proofing files!

Please bring back the italic text for non-printing elements in the Layers window. This was an important visual cue that everyone in the compositing departments at our company used to mark dielines and other non-printing guides. Please bring back this feature, at least as an option.

This really needs to be fixed. Dies on packaging must be easily spotted in files. I do not have the time or the money for the AAs that will be caused by double clicking on each layer
When I had a layer set to not print on previous versions it would list that layer in italic. It was very nice feature we used to double check our files before printing. We would love to see that feature resinstalled on 2018.
Whats the ETA on this fix please.
Please fix ASAP. This will for sure create problems with our workflow.
This needs to be fixed as will course problems within our workflow
When will it be fixed?
Layers used to be marked in italics when not a printable layer. Now there is no markings or indications of which layers print.

I just noticed this as well. Irritating!
Since we hae updated to 2018 version, non printable layers description is not oblique any more, which really is a huge problem for us. Sending wrong data to the printing company will be the result as you need to double click the layer to see if it is set to print or not.
Hopefully this is a fail of the current version and will be fixed soon...
