    Hi friends!

    I have some great news for your today. Rotate View (Canvas) feature is available in Illustrator 25.3 (Desktop) now. Thank you all for your feedback which helped us shape up this feature.

    Please note: This update is currently only available in the following countries (India, Australia, Netherlands, Hong Kong, France, Germany, Canada, South Korea, UK, Italy) and will rollout globally over the next few weeks.

    When I rotate the view and use the arrow keys to move something around, it moves around according to original view and not rotated view. It would be helpful for the arrow keys to move objects in the correct direction according to the rotated view. Thank you!

    1. It would be nice to have it like the zoom tool and pivot from where you click. That's what I prefer, but it would be great to have both options. Maybe double click on the tool to pick or have it as an option in the preference panel.
    2. Presets would be great in the status bar! It would be great if we could somehow assign shortcut keys to those presets. I guess there would need to be a rotation menu under view to be able to assign shortcut keys. That way I can do a quick flip.

    Thanks for all of this hard work and thought put into this tool!

    BUG: Not sure if this is after adding the Rotate View feature or a bug for the current beta version, however if I try to use the Blob Brush at all, Illustrator crashes. I restart and it still does the same thing. Anyone else have the same issue? Thanks!

    BUG/OR FEATURE REQUEST: When you rotate view, and select an object, line, etc, the bounding box doesn't rotate with rotate view. The bounding box remains relative to the normal view. It would help to be able to rotate view and then resize and object with the bounding box in the new rotated view. Thank you!

    BUG: When you rotate view, then use the zoom tool performing a click and drag, it seems to zoom in on random spots. I think it's zooming in on the relative location of the screen prior to rotating the view. I switched back to a non-rotated view to double check and it zoomed normal again to the spot where I placed the zoom tool and clicked and dragged to zoom in.

    BUG: When you rotate view, and select lines, sometimes it selects all lines but only shows some of the lines selected. I attached a screenshot of how it looks. The two red lines on the left are selected, even though they don't appear to be. You can see they disappear when I delete them in the other screenshot. There appears to be an anchor point selected though where those two lines are on the left.

    BUG: When you rotate view, and use the Selection tool and drag a box around some line strokes, it doesn't grab all of the lines every time, even if you give it a wide birth going past the line.
