    Hi Everyone,

    This has been completed, and has available since June 2020 release (version 24.2)

    Please go to Illustrator preferences > General > and select “Show/Hide Rulers” (refer attached screenshot). After checking this, if you hit ‘Show Rulers (Ctrl/Cmd + R)’, then the rulers will appear in every document (new and old), even after relaunching Illustrator.

    Please update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback.

    As others stated. That's not the "feature" that's being requested (I put "feature" in quotation marks, because it's a such a basic simple thing that can't be considered a feature really). We want NEW DOCUMENTS TO HAVE RULERS ON BY DEFAULT. Everyone is tired of pressing ctrl-R every single time we start a new document.

    In over 20 years of using Illustrator, there has never, ever been a single time where not having rulers around the perimeter of the work area is preferable to having them. We are all SICK AND TIRED of having to press a command key with every single time we start a new document!

    It's so frustrating that we have to turn on the rulers with every new Illustrator project, when there is never a situation where it's preferable to have them off. Please vote this to the top of page one to make the continued ignoring of this feature impossible.

    Hi Everyone,

    All the effect checkboxes have now been set to ON by default, and are sticky (meaning that if you disable preview, on next launch of Illustrator preview will remain disabled). This functionality now is available in our latest release build – 24.1.1 for Win and 24.1 for Mac which is available worldwide now.

    What’s new in 24.1: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/whats-new.html

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback.

    .... not to mention they can easily make it work for everyone by having a preference that can be set for on or off on the preview (which 99.9% of users would set for the opposite of the current unchangeable defualt.) Illustrator and Adobe don't give a sh!t though. Sigh.

    There doesn't even need to be a non-preview option, let alone that be the unchangeable default setting. There is literally NO situation where not seeing the preview of an affect before you exit the dialog box is the preferred setting. I've been using Illustrator for decades and I've never applied an affect without first clicking the preview button, since that's what Illustrator makes us all do, each and every time.

    THANK YOU!!!! This, along with the rulers not being the default setting when starting a new document, are easily the most annoying and baffling non-features about Illustrator, with it's 30+ year history of product development.
