type tool is fundamentally broken.
Why did you f up the type tool?? It, like almost everything else in Illustrator, doesn't work as good as it did a few versions back. I don't mind you making changes, but when it starts to impede productivity, it's a problem. I hate this program now. HATE. It's a buggy, aggravating, and just does not work seamlessly as it once did.
With the type tool, I have issues placing the cursor in the type. if I use the hand tool in conjunction with the type tool, it overrides the hand tool and starts adding spaces. Neve been a problem until a couple of months ago.Those are my main complaints at the moment, but the entire way illustrator handles type...with the type menu and how its organized, with how the program handles outside (non-adobe...or even older adobe fonts) type, with the atrocious ux and organization of the adobe type site. How it doesn't automatically activate type... Its blatantly obvious that the people making decisions about Illustrator do not use it. Please start focusing on your user's experience and talking to, and working with, designers. How are ya'll missing so badly with this once amazing program????? Please, please make this better
