    Years ago there was a company called quarkxpress. They had a huge Monopoly on desktop publishing. Everyone used Cork Express for graphic design. Everyone. It was really expensive and they had ****** customer service because they had a Monopoly. Their program had one major flaw. It couldn't handle transparency. You had to do all of your compositing in Photoshop, just for simple transparency needs. Years went by and they ignored request after request from tons of people. A company called Adobe decided to make competing product called indesign. One of their key features was transparency! Within a year or two the giant that used to be quarkxpress basically disappeared. Within a year they came back and had added transparency to their program, but it was too late.

    What we are seeing here is a monopoly. The architecture of Adobe Illustrator must be such that the program probably needs to be Rewritten to accomplish a larger canvas size. It is probably an extremely complex issue that requires a ton of programming and Adobe probably isn't willing to invest in such an expensive change. They are taking their user base for granted because they have a monopoly. Older programs such as acrobat and probably Adobe Illustrator have been abandoned and sent over to India, while the American programmers are probably playing with things that are useless like Adobe stock and all the useless apps for iPads. They're probably bored working on it Adobe illustrator. My guess is that they will never fix this. Because it's such a complex issue. If you think it through, they would have to re-do acrobat, all of their tools, and all sorts of other things to fix this problem. It would be major surgery.

    What is really interesting, is that Adobe Illustrator has no problem going extremely small. I just finished a signage project where we did a window wrap that was as long as a football field. I simply designed it at 1/100 scale and everything worked out perfectly.

    If I had to choose a larger canvas size or being able to rotate the canvas, I would choose rotating the canvas. But that might even be a larger project for Adobe that we will never see. Let's face it Adobe Illustrator is a legacy application that was probably program 20 years ago and it's probably a mess of millions of lines of code. I hope they will fix these problems, but as long as they are on Monopoly they're going to ignore us.

    PS: Please add Feet/inches. I hate working on something that os 456 inches. It means nothing to me.

    I'm guessing it's because the architecture of Illustrator is fundamentally limited to 64 bit or something like that. I suspect they have programmed themselves into an expensive corner.

    In the meantime, I realized that if I work at 10% size, things are super easy. I just move the decimal over one spot in the measurements. It is actually great, and I don't care so much about needing this feature now. Did you know that in the dimensions field you can do calculations? You can enter [ 256.25 /10 ] and it calculates for you. Its awesome.

    I bet for really large projects you could even do 1% scale and work on really large stuff.

    The cool thing about this approach is that you can still see measurements as they are. 280.5" at 10% scale is 28.5". Notice the decimal is just moved over one place, but the measurement is still easily read.

    So here is how Adobe and users could be happy:

    Cant the measurement fields for the user simply display differently by moving the decimal over for them if they set up the document at 1/10 or 1/100 scale? Maybe at the beginning of the document setup the user just picks "large format" (1/10), or "extra large format" (1/100) scale, or ludicrous scale (1/1000). Then everyone is happy. All adobe has to do is move the decimal over for humans and they don't have to rewrite hardly any code.

    I always have to work at 1/4 size for large printed projects. Also, when designing multiple artboards in 1920x1080px, there isnt room for as many artboards as I need.

    Hello Everyone!

    First up, let me apologize for not giving an update for such a long time. We will try to do a better job of providing frequent updates on our top requests going forward. This is not an excuse for lack of communication from our side, but we have been discussing this request for a long time internally. Without getting into too many technical details, let me share that there is a fair amount of complexity involved in making it work within Illustrator. The number of tools, effects, plugins, etc. makes it even more challenging. However, given the fact that it continues to be one of the top requests, the team has been exploring different approaches to implement it. I am happy to share that we have finally :) started to work on it. There would be some challenges in making everything work in the first release. I will…

    yay! Also make it more like sketch where objects that are dragged into an artboard don't interfere with other artboards. Basically copy how Sketch does it
