    The most recent version finally has the Object > Distribute menu added.

    Now both Align and Distribute commands can be accessed via menu and have assigned keyboards shortcuts to them.


    The order of the commands though seemingly matches the one the panel has: horizontal first for Align and vertical first for Distribute. If you find this odd and want to change it — vote here: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/45855823-sync-the-order-of-align-and-distribute-menu-comman


    Also, Align To and Distribute Spacing commands are still missing in top menus, so please keep voting here to make them added too.

    It is not as straightforward as it may sound :) We have been working to take advantage of threads and other hardware such as GPU/Video RAM in places where it can make a higher impact. We are prioritizing areas that are slow instead of making a generic change and destabilizing the product. Product stability is the top priority for us and we have been consistently trying to improve it. We want to move with caution and make changes without compromising on the quality. Hope this helps.

    @Egor, Thanks for the insightful and helpful view behind the scenes and so delighted that this is getting some attention. If there's a plan then I'm all good with that too. I expect most of us here really love Illustrator as a tool and want it to get the coding love and attention it deserves.

    I now hate gambling with updating illustrator. If it's currently working in a relatively stable fashion and I know how to work around all the myriad stupid things that don't work properly (like editing gradients from the gradients window or unreliable copying of text - 2 of the most annoying at the moment) then I don't bother. It's such a massive pain in the neck and loss of productivity to have to reset keyboard shortcuts, profiles, workspace layout and settings when you roll back a version. It's like admitting defeat if they make it easy to do. A recognition that updates don't necessarily improve user experience, or heaven forbid introduce a new problem like the recent super zoom in and out effect that made it utterly unusable.

    I feel for the volunteer testers who flag these things as the guy who reported that issue during beta didn't get his feedback responded to and we get a know about broken 'update'.

    Shame as it's juts another slow drip of annoyance for the faithful monthly funders. Grr!

    I'd love to hear from someone who has made the switch from Illustrator to Affinity Designer. I'm too invested in the Adobe infrastructure for other software in their suite to save myself any money by switching but I'm at the point I'm considering switching just to make my creative experience quicker and smoother and more reliable. I'm so gutted as I love illustrator and have years of experience but they clearly have no intention of taking advantage of multi-core performance.

    I was initially under the impression that the Mac SoC version of Illustrator had been designed to take advantage of the architecture and therefore would make a better effort to use multiple cores.

    I was excited to try but, my M1 Mac Mini from last year with 8GB memory was a big let down. It starts up faster but made no noticeable improvement for me (Dell XPS 17 9700 with 64GB and GTX 1650Ti for comparison) and if anything seemed a little slower panning and zooming large files.

    Since the M1 never seems to take advantage of multi cores in Illustrator (my daily workhorse) or even make full use of the cores or GPU when creating video in Premier Pro it gets no love from me. In fact all my daily tasks take longer on a MAC mini. What was all the fuss about?

    Maybe the new Mac Studio will be better but I'm guessing that'll only be because of the faster single core performance. I so wanted to find a Mac that was better than my now fairly average laptop, but for the stuff I use it for there's no significant gain. Illustrator being the main culprit along with PowerPoint for creating slide show video . Both of these have a subscription model and both seem incapable of taking advantage of multi core processing while taking advantage of my regular subscription stream. Software development today leaves a lot to be desired!

    At the moment everytime I want to use this it is less than helpful as I can't colour it and have limited options for the actual bullet.
    It's a step in the right direction but just not actually as good as it could be.

    Likewise. Workspace, keyboard shortcuts, preferences all need restoring despite Adobe saying they'd remain. I usually don't upgrade versions for a good while as the new one is always buggy in some way lately. That'll teach me. At least a month in the wild before considering it now.
