    Hi Everyone,

    Apologies for partial implementation of the original request, and marking it as completed.

    We have started work on this request again, and it will make it to Beta build soon. I will update this thread when it makes to Beta.

    Thanks,

    Varun

    Hey all.

    Adobe goofed up, they marked this as "Complete" so my guess is, as far as they're concerned, it's done and they won't be revisiting it, soooo...

    I started a new request that can't possibly be misinterpreted, even if English is their 2nd or 3rd language.

    Go here: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-feature-requests/suggestions/39818080-rulers-on-by-default and vote it up.

    They were so close... so close...

    You recently closed this request as ""Completed" it is most certainly NOT complete. It's close, so close we can taste it, but it isn't finished yet.

    Right now, we have the new, and almost glorious, option to "show/hide rulers across all documents". It works nearly wonderfully well as every new document I open (after enabling the new preference and hitting Ctrl + R) has rulers.

    I open a new file, hey, rulers!
    I open an old file, yesssss, rulers!
    I close AI and open it the next day and <sad trombone> NO RULERS?!?!?
    Ctrl + R and there they are again, in every document I open...

    AI needs to remember that I hit Ctrl + R yesterday, or last Tuesday, or January 2016 to get the rulers to display and then display them whenever I open the program, until such a time in which I turn them off, which quite frankly, will be never, but hey, other people might like not having rulers, so make it remember that they're off when they're turned off and on when they're turned on...

    This isn't rocket surgery.

    I like Rulers on. Bob likes them off. The setting in preferences should read as "Show/Hide Rulers by Default". If it's checked, AI shows me the rulers, every document, every time. When it's not checked, AI shows no rulers for Bob, every document, every time.
