Hi friends! I have some great news for your today. Rotate View (Canvas) feature is available in Illustrator 25.3 (Desktop) now. Thank you all for your feedback which helped us shape up this feature.

hey, wacom cintiq & intuous user here, please stop telling me I don't need to rotate the canvas because it makes drawing so much easier - there's a reason old-skool animation desks have a rotating disk in them, not to mention photoshop, toon boom harmony, tvpaint, opentoonz, affinity designer and sketchbook pro which ALL let you rotate the canvas so you can, you know, actually "illustrate stuff", which, you would have thought "illustrator" would actually have but hey :-P Come on Adobe, please sort this out, we put up with some of the ridiculous ui (dropdown menu for transparency % wtf?) but this is a pretty fundamental feature for freehand drawing....Anonymous supported this idea ·
hey bob, I'm not sure I fully understand what you're suggesting, but it sounds quite complicated. All I want is the ability to rotate the canvas so I can draw freehand curves properly - like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eq0H0K3e7_E , or like a traditional animation desk (they all have a rotating disk in the middle for a reason!). Like in photoshop! It doesn't do anything apart from 'rotate the paper' so you can draw at a different angle.
