Disable Layer Search in Layers Window

Illustrator v 27.7

Mac Studio 2022

Mac OS 13.5.1 (22G90)

 

Please allow for disabling the layer search function. The Layers window search field randomly activates, especially when opening new files from a template and when opening exitisting files to make revisions. This is incredibly frustrating. For example; when I open a file and try to select the type tool by hitting the T key, I just end up typing a line of T's in the layer search bar. When the search function is active it appears as if there is only one layer in the file, making it difficult to find layers and objects. It is making too much extra work just clicking around and double-checking to navigate my own files. Please remedy this with the option to remove/disable this feature from the Layers window. Thank, Adobe.

Or maybe there already is a request for that. I couldn't find it, but there should be.

Thanks for bringing this up! I was just issued my new Mac yesterday, furnished with only the last 2 versions of Illustrator, and I come to find that there is this new (but completely useless to me!) “search” field atop my Layers palette. My first thought was, “What would I possibly search my layers for, Adobe?!?”, and then, “How can I disable this, immediately?!”

Adobe, can you please add a little check box to the bottom of the “Layers” “Panel Options...” so each user can make their own choice about this extraneous (in my opinion) addition to Illustrator?
