    Hi Everyone,

    This has been completed, and has available since June 2020 release (version 24.2)

    Please go to Illustrator preferences > General > and select “Show/Hide Rulers” (refer attached screenshot). After checking this, if you hit ‘Show Rulers (Ctrl/Cmd + R)’, then the rulers will appear in every document (new and old), even after relaunching Illustrator.

    Please update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App:

    Thank you for all the feedback.

    I had the Illustrator 10 coming out of college nearly 20 years ago. I remember setting up the preferences to always show rulers, defaults on all other standard options... and which tools on the side I wanted at start-up. I "upgraded" to CS5 a few years ago, and I am frustrated that I have to either learn computer programing to have it upload my palettes, show rulers, etc., or I have to manually do it every time. I use illustrator mainly for personal use, and a little graphic design for my businesses, so it doesn't make sense to subscribe. I don't know what happened between Illustrator 10 and CS5, but someone forgot that there are a few simple options that should be available for the non-computer programmer types out there to just set your general workspace once...and never need to do it again. You can continue with all the great other features, but please help out the casual users like me. Thanks!
