    Yeah... although it's not really a problem of having too many handles. The real problem is behind the archaic user interface. Every new option added in Illustrator must pass through the user interface pipeline, so now is almost impossible to manage the number of handles or nodes without missing the shot, and moving the entire shape, rounding corners or selecting background elements. Simply as example… the infamous “free transform” tool… even with update, is hidden and difficult to understand.

    At last, in complex illustrations, I waste more time moving to View menu and Configuration to constantly change visualizations and color guides. Even worst, for those that use foreign keyboards, shortcuts don’t work... needing to tediously change manually each one of them, getting sometimes conflicts with other short keys… frustrating.

    The only solution should be to build up the entire desktop app right from zero, as Adobe has done with Illustrator for iPad. Free of recursive and hidden options in remote menus. And doubt it will happen.

    Ok... so how I can find this "hidden or locked" element? I have thousands of objects... can't waste my time looking one by one between layers... nor run scripts.

    Thank you in advance...

    Move “import” button to a common sense place. All design app has the Open/import at the top.

    Decades working on multiple language, new computers, Mac/Win, dual monitor configurations, plugin custom palettes, etc, etc, etc... and I've still to loose hours looking for hidden system folders, each one in different files.

    After taken almost a day configuring Illustrator, everything is lost when there is any OS update, AI update, or simply because I'm human and can't manage such nightmare of files, folders, hidden menus, config options and whatever the evil remains from Illustrator jurassic architecture.

    Don't waste time asking Illustrator for common sense in XXI Century usability standards. It's a 90's thing bloated with dozens of insane and absurd tools that only adds frustration.

    Just today I've been working with this 3D grid thing over a simple logo, because I've activated inadvertently, and I've been unable to close it, even clicking compulsively the "close" minibutton.

    Illustrator will die slowly, and maybe, Adobe will surprise us in the future with a new design tool, build from zero, thinking in the nowadays designers.

    Hi Everyone,

    We have improved the working experience of Free Distort tool. Now the bounding box will not reset! 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

    Corel Draw already had it in 90's... even the "transform each" as it should to be!: interactive with handles, right in the canvas, with just pressing a short key.

    I think 30 years has been enough to copy and improve it. Anyway... don't worry, I'm afraid is too late. Nowadays, almost any of the cheaper design tools out there has it as standard (Affinity is clear example... no dialog boxes or panels) .

    Hey Dirk Schulze!... thanks a lot for your answer :-)

    Just I didn't remember I wrote my comment about it. In fact, I've been all this past months fighting against Illustrator, trying to find solutions to each of the increasing number of discouraging issues and aging of its nowadays unintuitive and prehistoric tools, compared with modern and cheaper design apps.

    Sadly, the only answer I've found for it and all the other questions is move to the 21st century and leave behind 1990's. It means, learn new and more efficient software that could save my life and career (as didn't made Illustrator in last months)

    I know illustrator is a big dinosaur, and change even the smallest tool functionality almost impossible. That's why I think it should be sent to de Elephant Graveyard and give him a splendorous retirement.

    For Adobe, to really compete against the myriad of new 21st century design tools, should to start from the ground up with a new and light design tool... without all these ton of useless complex and unintuitive functions no one uses.

    Good luck Adobe!... I've been a loyal user for decades, my job as a free lancer needs cheaper and faster tools to improve productivity and creativity, not frustration and years of "feature request" writing and voting. It's fun to see how nowadays, there are still people asking for a decent "isometric" grid option... when isometric design is something of the remote past.

    Absolutely agree... SVG design and animation is an increasing demand today. Adobe Animate is not the right tool, as it is good for banner animations, but not optimised to manage HTML5/CSS/Javascript separate files (as usual with large web projects). Even worst... no intellisense/code completion for SVG/Javascript, so writing code is a pain.

    I've been trying for years to find a decent procedure to export Illustrator graphics to reuse in HTML projects, but I've only been successful to use SVG as static images. So following I’ll describe some issues and proposals to help us simplify the process.

    1 - "CSS Properties" panel incoherent: After carefully name each element and create all the CSS class styles, the SVG is exported using object names as Id. So I’ve to rewrite the SVG or the CSS to replace the Id with Class names or vice versa.
    2 – After exported SVG, the new style classes generated are named in a numerical way (for example “st27”), so I’ve to manually rewrite each class in a meaningful way.
    3 – Classes multiplied by each element in the SVG: If for example, I have 100 elements sharing the same colour, I get a CSS sheet with 100 different named classes to “paint” exactly the same colour, so just one class should be enough. Again, for efficient design and coding, I’ve to manually rename all 100 classes with a unique meaning one.
    4 – Proposal 1: A more powerful “CSS Palette” tool… having options to export CSS as attached file, not embedded inside the SVG file, and ability to edit/rename ID and Classes.
    5 – Proposal 2: Some document “outline view” tool to quick see the hierarchy and attributes of the SVG/AI content. “Layers” panel could do the trick, but thumbnail images makes it too large and difficult to navigate, so a simple and basic semantic tree view could be enough.

    Thank you! Hope you could find my ideas useful.

    hehehe... sorry, now I remembered all those improvements asked by loyal users for years on grids, to make easier to create Isometric Illustrations. All the design programs that appeared in the last years, all had it as an alternative grid... easy to customize and fast to use..

    Now Isometric Illustration has vanished in the memories of old trends... no one more uses it, and Illustrator is still giving only as option the completely complex and time waster 3D Grid... something that after such years I've been absolutely incapable to use with success

    Even it hasn't any way to lock both Horizontal and Vertical values... you have to do a so "creative" and "intuitive" thing like type manually the numbers two times... or slide unaccurately the sliders two times. Its exactly like the infamous "Free Transform Tool"... it can't do nothing similar to a "free transform".

    I remember in late 90's Corel Draw was able to do deformations, distortions and "transform each" complex operations just right over the objects, visually and dragging their bounding anchors in real time.

    That's why I'm afraid that we will never see these improvements... to solve all this, Adobe should need to rebuild Illustrator from zero again

    I had the same problem when working in Windows. Now I'm working on Mac and there is no "Home" icon... instead there is an "Illustrator" text. Not a good usability solution for "agnostic" designers that are jumping from Mac to PC...

    anyway, I wish all Illustrator usability fails were as easy than these!
