Just got done watching the excellent tutorial of Illustrator on MAX with Jason Hoppe. Even though I have been using AI my entire career, I learned some new things today!

 

https://www.adobe.com/max/2020/sessions/beginner-illustrator-part-1-basics-on-any-device-l6141a.html...

 

I was very excited to see there is a Repeat tool now which he shows at 22:30. But my Adobe Illustrator 2021 MacOS is completely up to date as of this morning and there is no Repeat option under my Object menu, or anywhere else for that matter. I looked everywhere and even searched under the Help menu.

 

What am I missing? Would love to use that new tool!

 

Thanks!

It was in a beta he is using, but removed from the shipping version.

I was so excited to see the new repeat tool (Object | Repeat)

I verified I updated on my Windows 10 program and the repeat is not there.  I do have Version 25.0 on a Windows 10.  It is missing under Object

Thank you Ton, at least I can stop trying to find it. I wish he had indicated that. Looking forward to it in a future update!

Yes, it was included in the beta to make it compatible with the iPad version of Illustrator.

You can still open files from the iPad version with repeat objects, but not edit them now.
