    I do want to say this because in my haste to answer a question and respond to a user struggling with Ai I do want to make something clear. In no way should Adobe merely copy another companies IP functionality. But they could certainly address this type of building in their own intuitive way and implement it to make the whole process of creating vector art easier natively. I should have clarified that better, I didn't so I apologize for any confusion.

    Like most tools in Adobe Illustrator many are released and never touched again or improved upon. The ellipse tool would be great with this functionality and the line segment tool which I almost never use would become very useful with this feature. Come on engineers, you know this because I showed you both methods in New Delhi.

    This once again proves the flaw of Adobe beta testing methodology. Meaning they need real-world beta testing because the would have been caught almost immediately before public release. Reading the comments by engineers is not very encouraging. This is basic work flow 101 for Ai. Losing it doesn't seem huge until you lose it and it immediately becomes a pain. This also seems to be happening in Photoshop too so the problem is systemic in that regard. Originally posted in 2017 yet still happening in 2019 only shows how lethargic their attention to detail is regarding development. I won't hold my breath.

    An app shouldn't second guess the user and that is what Ai does too often. If the Ai team wants to have the app by default round to cater to noobs fine. But give pro users a pref setting we can check to turn it off and take what ever number we input. Digital is suppose to be exact, precise. If a vendor asks for a file to be 3.6785 than that is what I want to input and I don't need Ai being a design nanny and acting as if it knows better. It's highly Ainnoying. Who ever made this decision obviously did not keep a pro user in mind.

    Adobe Ai team has already ripped of features from Astute Graphics because they implement functions better than Adobes own engineers do.

    But even their rip offs fall short like the corner widget, it sucks and the can easily be triggered accidentally when trying to select an anchor point. Astutes dynamic corners tool never gets in the way and is more intuitive.

    Overall ease of base vector building, editing, and selection has deteriorated a lot since CC kicked in.

    Smart guides are not very smart and you have to constantly toggle them on/off in order to select things at times. Other times you have to zoom in to select otherwise it becomes impossible.

    The main problem with Ai development is no one on their team creates with the software they develop.

    Their agenda is driven by another team called ‘The Monetary Marketing Team’ that insists on more features that tie into creative cloud and or Adobe Stock. It’s all about migrating people off stand alone apps and onto their subscription model to get that monthly pound of flesh.

    Adobe said at MAX 2016 that Ai user base for the first time in 25 years is larger than Photoshop yet their team for Ai is the the keystone cops of development. Sloppy development means you wait years for a bug fix and they love to release a feature half-baked then never return to it and improve it. Brushes in Ai fall into this category.
