    First up, apologies for not sharing an update on this. We will try to do a better job of keeping you update on the progress/decisions going forward.

    We have started working on it and will be rolling it out in one for our upcoming releases. This is how this central control/handle would look like.

    Ah yes, the workarounds we must employ to achieve the functions that were once so simple. I guess this will be the new normal since Adobe has done nothing but ignore its users. None of the engineers seem to actually use the deteriorating products that they force us to use. Frustrating, problematic garbage...

    Raghuveer Singh, do you have anything to add after 8 months? Any progress?

    I'll take your silence as an official "F*ck off" from Adobe. Just keep taking our money and ignoring your customer base. Great business model...

    Im calling bullsh*t on the whole User Voice platform. Adobe created a system to placate their customers by letting them feel like they have some kind of say/feedback. Then, they do nothing about the problems. Illustrator has become a cluster*ck. The precision and selection tools that used to work so well are now problematic garbage that actually hinder productivity. I'll often try to perform a simple action a dozen times before I get the outcome I need...I'm talking simple things like trying to rotate a shape, round a corner or place objects precisely. This is just the tip of the iceberg, too. I could go on for hours.

    Adobe doesn't give a f*ck about you or me. That just want our money. There's no real competition and they literally don't have to do anything. They have become beholden to their shareholders and forsaken their customers. I used to love my Adobe programs. Now, I HATE them. Using Adobe products is a frustrating and aggravating user experience.

    I anxiously await your downfall. Thanks for nothing, Adobe...

    Still under review. Ha!

    How do we get legitimate issues addressed, Adobe?

    Ever thought about employing consultants who actually use your programs?

    The b*llshit way you are running things isn't working.

    I would welcome someone at Adobe to contact me.

    Update, but no fixes that I can tell....

    I wonder what perfectly good features you've f'd up now??

    brian stokes commented  · 

    It's getting worse, not better.
    When you're a monopoly, I guess you don't have to give a **** about your customers. Just force them to take whatever garbage you throw at them.

    I used to love Illustrator, now, I HATE it. Since the switch to CC, it's been problematic and buggy and nothing ever seems to get fixed. In fact, the entire program has gotten worse over time and it's obvious that Adobe doesn't give a **** about its customers.

    The overall lack of precision and the issues with the selection tools are driving me insane. I have to repeat movements numerous times and/or have to zoom in hundreds or thousands of percent to do complete the simplest of tasks...like scaling or adjusting width/height. Illustrator wants to rotate the shape instead, or randomly switches the selection tool to the direct selection tool when attempting to manipulate the object.

    And what happened to all 9 of the selection points on objects??? Say I have a skinny, horizontal rectangle and I want to adjust the width. The middle selection point has vanished and I have to zoom in, interrupting my work flow, to do the simple task. I've been using this program since the 90s. This has been this way the past few versions of Illustrator.

    I hate using this program now. It literally makes me angry because it has become such a frustrating cluster*ck. And these few issues are just the tip of the frustration iceberg.

    I'm paying a premium for an inferior product/service because Adobe has a virtual monopoly. As soon as any real competitor comes along, I'm out.

    Please do something about this piece of ****. Stop adding bells and whistles and fix the issues that have been plaguing the program for years. The type tool, for one glaring example, has been terrible for a decade.

    Thanks for nothing,

    Brian Stokes

    Please, feel free to contact me.

    Hello,

    Please accept my sincere apology for the inconvenience the issue has caused. We do test our products thoroughly including running it through multiple beta testers and we really regret that this issue slipped past our quality checks.
    We have a fix and is available in the pre-release build. Please visit https://adobe.ly/1o2SDsg and get the latest build for version 23.0.5 (Build 3). While the build is prerelease this build is still of production quality. Please feel free to use/recommend it for your day to day activity.
    We would appreciate if you can give us the feedback on the correctness of the fix by pressing the Thumbs up button on the UserVoice page.

    Regards,
    Ankit Goyal
    Illustrator Team

    Exactly, Doug Millhoff.

    Illustrator is devolving instead of improving. I've just spent an hour making adjustments to a file that literally should have (and previously WOULD have) taken 10-15 minutes. Thanks, Adobe.

    brian stokes commented  · 

    Great. Glad to hear that your listening and addressing the issues. Now, how do we get the much bigger problems and ongoing issues addressed? Like the major issues with the precision and selection that have plagued illustrator since (around) the introduction of CC?

    I'd still love to speak to someone directly!

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 23.0.6 which is available worldwide now.

    Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

    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. Keep it coming!

    Adobe says, "F*ck you. You're going to keep paying us and you'll take whatever garbage we want to give you."
