I really need to get the distracting, blue "share" button removed from the top of UI in Illustrator 2022. Any way to do that?

Maybe if you use the button once, it become gray.

I tried that, clicking the blue button and Illustrator crashed after clicking cancel.

The second attempt worked, I could click cancel an the blue button has disappeared.

Now in version 27, if you go to Preferences>User Interface>Share Button and select "Match Brightness" rather than "Blue," it makes the button much less distracting.

Hi. Have you updated to the last version? I have the 26.0.1 version and I have a smaller monochromatic button.

I have the newest (26.0.1) version as well. No matter what my UI brightness is, that button is bold and blue.

You guys are great. Such a simple thing. I clicked on the button, then canceled, and it went away. That didn't work when I had 26.0. Does now. Thank you!

Good to hear that helped (I found it distracting too).

Please remove 'share' button, or allow it to be disabled.

 

It's hideous and distracting and has no place in my workflow.

Hi @nanodust,

 

Thanks for reaching out. We have tried to change the color of the "Share" button to match the theme color.
Go to AI Preferences > User Interface > Share Button" and select "Match Brightness" - it will no longer appear blue.

However, if you still want a disable option under preferences. I would suggest adding a comment on this UserVoice (https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/443...).

 

This is the best way of communicating with the Engineering and Product teams regarding issues and suggestions so they can be implemented in future releases.

 

Thanks,

Anshul Saini
