    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…

    Really you guys have been tinkering on this. Many people here don't seem to understand the difference between rotation in Photoshop Vs illustrator. As you said I think rotating the canvas is a better and "easier" way. It would have much less issues figuring out what is on a canvas and what not.

    The caveAt is perhaps the origin of rotation. I would presume it's either center of active artboard or manual set origin.

    Downside to this is probably document with ram hungry setup like extended use of filters. They tend to redraw on each interaction when moved. So perhaps some setting that will go in some kind of low-res preview mode to make this workflow smoother.

    Looking forward to this implementation.

    Please test it thoroughly before launching. Quite some tools have been broken and taken years to be fixed.

    Seems devs dont care about its users nor do they listen to feedback. THey should start look at useful feedback instead of adding new features which make illustrator wack!

    I find illustrator quite broken last couple years. I can hardly snap something properly without the need to zoom in to X100 procent before i get snapping to work properly.

    Then there is SUPER annoying issue with the selection marque handles. You want to scale or more it and it starts to rotate. This is seriously the most annoying issue for years. Its said it was fixed many times and has been returning from 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and i think i already saw 2020 having the same issue

    still wonder why this thing only has 150 votes?!?!

    This trick actually does work on gradients as well. You do need to make sure you set your gradient up with global spot color. See attached, i hereby drag on color on a color i used as a stop.

    It does update the gradient without the need to select everything, edit its color, save a new gradient and then apply it.

    Much faster!!! Still learning stuff after 20 years hahaha

    Alt + drag changes that gradient and basically makes a new one. This will only update globally if you select the gradient, then choose "select same fill". Check if everything is correctly selected, then do the update on that gradient and save a new one. Delete the old one.

    As far as i know and everything i tried. You can edit a saved gradient. You can edit the colors, but its basically a new gradient which is not saved yet.

    Its kind of weird that working with gradients is still very messy and not convenient

    I also see this with simple click operations. There this very minimal lagg. I also see the CPU peak a bit than when i check Activity Monitor and check the cores using CMD + 3. Im not sure this is a wacom thing because in other version i did not have this issue. Its annoying AH this lack, complete ruins a smooth design process. Perhaps its time to shift to Afinity designer now... :(

    Its not a GPU issue because its still there with GPU OFF. Its not there when using the trackpad.

    The Tollorance is still broken, example set it to 1px and try to select something. It selects it even while its 50-100px aside of it.

    Another super annoying issue, it constantly goes into rotation mode. Im riding a rolleer coast here because i need to none stop zoomin and out.

    They really broke this part and has been like this for quite ome versions. I think somewhere around 2015/2016 it started to act like this.
