    Since @sjc mentioned industry standards, I'd imagine this is part of the reason why this hasn't been resolved yet. As far as professional and educational workspaces go, Macs are still the industry standard for graphic design (despite the fact that this hasn't been necessary for a few decades now). And I have yet to see a primary Mac display set up in portrait mode. Maybe if mainstream desktop workflows change, this issue might get resolved. But in the meantime this seems to remain a niche issue (hence only 36 votes in 2 years) and there are plenty of other players in the field that can fill that niche. @sjc presented some good alternatives. It's a shame because I really wanted Illustrator to be a one-stop solution for desktop and tablet vector design, but I found the tablet mode to be clunky even in landscape, so I'm not sure I'd even use Illustrator in portrait mode on my tablet if they offered it (other than in a tablet/multi-monitor desktop setup, and I grew impatient waiting for that functionality). This is all to say, if you're part of the niche, don't expect niche solutions from the industry standard, find another service that caters to your niche.

    This basically makes Illustrator unusable when I'm working on a multi-monitor setup with my Surface in portrait next to my monitor. Please fix this!
