Choose where to place new artboard
Choose where to place new artboard, like how Illustrator used to act:
Please bring back the ability of a user to control where new artboards appear, rather than Illustrator always putting it next to whatever artboard might be selected or last one made. In earlier versions of Illustrator, users could make a new artboard in any particular location by simply clicking the artboard tool in the paste board.
It is SO frustrating to make a new artboard in some odd location and then have to move it to where you wanted it to be in the first place.

I've been trying to find anyone talking about this online. I used to be able to just click once with the artboard tool and a new artboard with identical dimensions would be created in that spot. Very convent and much faster. Now I am forced to click the new artboard button in the properties panel with no control over placement, or I can drag and release but that lacks size consistency.
