Have Illustrator Toolbar set to stacked when opening files

Community Beginner ,

The toolbar is laid horizontally when I open Illustrator, like in the current example photo below.

I want to have the toolbar set to stacked (see image below) every time I open Illustrator instead of changing it manually from the previous example. Is there a setting or workspace trick I can use to accomplish this?

You can set it up as 1 column and then save that as a workspace.

I've tried that option, but it doesn't work. I would start from scratch for a new workspace but keep running into the same issue.

Hi @Luke5CE5,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I achieved this by opening a new document and clicking on the inward arrow, then closing the document and quitting Illustrator. The next time I opened Illustrator, the toolbar was stacked. I had to do this twice with Essential & essential classic workspace, which stayed the same even with other workspaces. Please try this and let me know if that helps!

 

Thanks,

Anshul Saini

Hi @Luke5CE5,

 

Thanks for trying. I am attaching a screen recording demonstrating how it looks on my end. If you are not able to replicate the same.

 

Then I'd recommend you to connect with our technical support team (https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?rghtup=autoOpen). The team here would be able to perform remote troubleshooting and assist you accordingly.

 

Best,

Anshul Saini
