    Dear Users,

    Hope you are well and safe during these uncertain times. We at Adobe wish you well.

    I am glad to announce that we have completed this feature in Beta and are actively seeking your feedback to help us understand if this feature meets your workflow needs.

    All the users who subscribed to our pre release program would have received an email from me to welcome you to our new Beta program. The new Beta program gives you access to the Large Canvas feature and also seeks your feedback through the survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7ZDMD5L

    This survey link can also be accessed within the app.

    For everybody else, I would ask you to join our pre release program (https://www.adobeprerelease.com/beta/85A6F544-2705-49BD-8314-DD549C6A1713#) and we will give you access to the new beta program. We hope each one of you is able to try the new build and give us feedback.

    Look…

    Why do architects keep commenting on this and comparing their work to our work? Of course you, as architects, work to scale, because the thing you are producing on Illustrator isn't the final product, it's a plan of the final product, by it's very nature it is designed to be at scale. It might be printed out or displayed on a screen at A2 or A1 size and so that's the largest size you need to be able to work at in Illustrator.

    But how would you feel, when you came to actually building your final product (a house or whatever) and found that none of your construction equipment could move or reach further than 5 metres? Or that the units on your tape measures and laser guides were all limited to 5 metres? How would you feel if the manufacturers of your construction equipment said "Well, just pretend it's 50 metres instead of 5 metres and you should be able to work around it then!"

    That's a closer analogy to what we're experiencing. For those of us who are producing graphics as the final product (and not just a plan of a final product) and that need to be output at full size, that need to communicate directly from Illustrator to a printer or plotter at full-size, that need to see how raster elements included into a vector design will appear at full-size, we are being restricted and hamstrung by the limitations artifically imposed in Illustrator, they need removing or fixing!
