    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…

    Like photoshop would be my preference.

    Sounds like you're on the wrong thread Marco. This is for us users who would benefit from art board rotation implemented for daily work flow.

    Happy birthday Rotate Canvas Story! You're getting so big!

    Absolutely. Nothing less than a full free rotation of the art board at any angle should be accepted.... Hence the name ILLUSTRATOR. Draw on paper and only rotate 90 degrees. Let us know how helpful that is.

    Haha good one! Who's pretending to be Adobe?? I'll believe this when I see it.

    Hey Adobe, I felt like wasting some time to comment on this thread you've ignored for almost 3 years. I'm working on an illustration. I cannot rotate the artboard.

    At this point I'll try anything. Affinity Designer here I come. Adobe wants us to rent their software and act like slum lords as they neglect some of the most sought after and NECESSARY feature requests. Unacceptable.

    Absolutely. I actually have called to inquire about this and the customer service rep said "we'll be updating that feature request thread as soon as possible." Very similar to "We'll be picking it up shortly." Got it. Thanks Adobe.

    This should be a default feature considering it's the "industry standard" illustration application. Affinity Designer has this currently implemented. Thanks Adobe, for keeping us updated on the status of this feature request. Your customer service SUCKS.

    Yes, I've also called to ask about this feature. If you have time to kill I highly recommend reaching out.

    Hahahahaha any updates! That's a good one. Adobe has ignored this thread since Nov 2017. Thanks Adobe!

    Absolutely agree. They have no sense of urgency to implement art board rotation anytime soon. Affinity Designer already has this feature and at a much more competitive price point. Also running really good deals right now. https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/designer/

    We have to believe they are incapable of implementing this feature based on lack of updates or acknowledgment. Which is very concerning being that they are "industry standard". It goes to show exactly how they feel about their loyal customers who pay overpriced monthly subscriptions. Actions speak louder than words.

    "PICKING IT UP SHORTLY". Either you or I don't know how to define "shortly"....

    You heard right. Affinity Designer has this feature. I recently made the switch. Wish I would have done it a lot sooner!

    "Picking it up shortly" should be Adobe's tagline. Just like "free beer tomorrow". We get it Adobe.

    Affinity Designer already has this feature. Pathetic.

    That's weird, they have this feature currently in photoshop. Affinity designer is capable. Figure it out Adobe.

    Seriously who cares about a mobile version of illustrator. It certainly shouldn't take priority over your desktop application! IMPLEMENT ROTATE ART BOARD

    Hey Adobe I don't design on any mobile apps along with thousands of other designers. How are we forgetting the original client base that only uses desktop applications? And, if the desktop applications are going to be secondary focus how about decreasing the monthly rate vs raising it?

    Simple question. Affinity Designer has this feature. Adobe Illustrator, considered to be "the industry standard" does not. WHY?

    However, I will be cancelling creative cloud at the end of the month and switching to Affinity Designer. https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/

    WOW they have time to censor comments but no updates on app features. This is Adobes customer service in a nutshell... Adobe your customer service SUCKS!!

    It's fun not being able to rotate the art board. Not having this feature ads lots of unnecessary time while illustrating. Thanks Adobe.

    "Industry standard" illustration app doesn't let you rotate the artboard. Mind-boggling. When you illustrate on paper you ROTATE to accommodate stroke angle & workflow. Please, everyone, share this thread.

    Seriously! Your customer service SUCKS! Just purchased Affinity Designer. I will be cancelling my creative cloud subscription ASAP. The lack of follow up is ridiculous.

    You might not want to thank them in advance.. That's under the assumption they are working toward a solution. Pretty sure this got added to the "backlog" aka forget about it log.

    Great question. Can we get a status update Ashutosh Chaturvedi? You have nearly 400 monthly paying customers asking for this. Try customer service for a change?

    Aye Yogestein! You ever try out that illustration on static paper?? I'll bet you're soooooooooooooooooo busy cracking this artboard rotation case you don't have time to respond. I noticed the latest update DOES NOT include artboard rotation. I'm SURE you didn't forget about us high paying customers AYE BROTHERR?!?

    Hey Yogster, I got one for you. Try illustrating on good old fashioned paper. One catch. You're not allowed to rotate the paper... Let us know what you think.

    Hey Yogmeister any updates bud? We rent your software by paying a monthly fee. So, consider me your tenant. I'll be sure to follow up regularly like I would a landlord.

    Wassup Yogi? You get around to picking it up shortly yet bud?? For anyone else tired of Adobe's lack of customer service check out this alternative software. https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/ It has some really nice features and much more cost effective than Adobe's monthly subscription gauge.

    Haha okay Ben. You must be friends with Yogesh. 8 years for the 2nd highest requested feature is laughable. It's called abode "illustrator". When you illustrate on paper you rotate when necessary. Should have been implemented about 8 years ago IMO.

    Hey, Yogesh. How's that "picking it up shortly" coming along? You guys use that line around the office similar to the signs you see at local bars "free beer tomorrow"?

    Would absolutely be a great feature. Lets just hope they implement it within our lifetime.
