So this "feature" was added a few years ago and it seems that even with the latest update it is still broken.

 

Here's what happens:

 

> Open Illustrator

> Tool Bar appears as double column

> set it to single column using the little arrows at the top

> save new workspace (the tool bar is part of the workspace right?)

> Close Illustrator

> Open llustrator

>Tool Bar is back to double column.

 

I've seen this answered as "your screen isn't big enough for the single column stack" that is 100% not the case for me. Attached is a screen shot of my single column with plenty of space below on my 4k screen to

show many more tools than I have in my set up.

Hi Nick,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. I'll pass this on to the product team and will let you know once I have an update about it.
Would you mind sharing the version of the OS & Illustrator? Also, please share if you see similar behavior in any other Adobe application.

Looking forward to your response.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

Hi Ashutosh

 

Thanks for getting back to me.

-Windows 10 Home

-Latest version of Illustrator (but this has been happening since the update in 2018)

 

Does not happen in any other apps with a similar tool bar set up, that I use regualrly. (photshop, after effects, xd, inDesign)

 

cheers
