Bring back progress bar for saving AI files
Can we please go back to having a progress bar when saving an AI file? The saving in the background is nice, but the saving percentage text just doesn't do it for me, plus, the pop-up dialog box that comes up while saving is very annoying.
In order to get previous behavior, please disable ‘Save in Background’ checkbox (Preferences > File Handling & Clipboard > Save in Background).
@J Bassell: There are two places where we show the progress of save (see attcahed image). You may read more about background save at: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/illustrator/using/saving-artwork.html#background_save

Yes, this is very disruptive to the workflow. I am not seeing any indication on my end (using the latest version) anywhere of progress, and saving files is slower than it has been is a long time. We need to be able to see where Illustrator is at with progress. Making it evident is a must have, not an annoyance.
Hi, you can turn off background saving in preferences on the file handling tab - save in background
