Custom Tools panels in Illustrator CC

Have you ever wanted just the tools you need for a specific task right at hand in Illustrator?

The new Custom Tools panel feature in Illustrator CC lets you do just that, whether it’s tools for drawing and editing paths, working with type, or just having your everyday tools a convenient click away:  no digging into hidden tools required.

You can add, delete and rearrange the tools in your custom panel with simple drag and drop actions, and they can be saved with workspaces, too.

We’re kicking off a series of posts on the Illustrator team, to share a bit about who they are and how new features are developed.

Tell us about yourself and your role on the Illustrator team.

My name is Yogesh Sharma, one of the product owners on the Illustrator team. I joined Adobe and the Illustrator team as a quality engineer in November, 2006. I have a degree in engineering but no background in art or design. During my stint with the Illustrator team, I have learned to draw — and am no longer scared of a blank artboard.

Away from work, I am an avid motorcyclist and have done some incredible tours, such as riding one of world’s highest roads in the Himalayas.

Do you have a favorite illustration/graphic design style?

I like almost all types of design, but I am particularly intrigued by the more psychedelic artwork styles.
