The New Toolbar is Awful!
Even if I add stuff to the "custom" toolbar it changed the regular advanced toolbar. This is creating so much wasted time. I am almost in tears. As suggested below the "advanced" toolbar does not revert to the original. It is continually effected by whether or not I change things in the "custom" toolbar. Please help!
I assume this refers to an already fixed bug, when customizing a panel was way to easy, and users dragged tool occasionally instead of clicking...
Does it still happen for you?
I'm looking into other options. Sketch I guess? I already have it but never thought I'd consider switching. Obviously Adobe developers and the folks making decisions about UI and the toolbar are not interested in the customers who actually use the software. This is so sad and frustrating.
Adobe- If it ain't broke don't fix it. It was fine. You messed with. Now it is a mess. Just change it back the way it was before you messed it up.
I use Adobe Illustrator a minimum of 40 hours a week and I am typically able to adapt to any update provided by adobe fairly quickly. However, I have been using the latest tool bar update for months now and there is no getting used to it. I have to reset my tool bar every hour or so due to the tools moving positions on there own. I find my self searching for tools more often than not and have yet to find pattern in which I am able to understand it. Pure frustration.
I have been using this software for years and have yet to have this much trouble with it until the recent update. Please revert back to the prior toolbar settings.
