    WOW!!! THAT IS SUCH A GREAT FEATURE!!!

    When I use Windows "remote desktop" to access my office computer from home, my widescreen HDTV (that I use for a monitor with my laptop at home) ends up screwing with all my pallettes in Illustrator and Photoshop... I just checked out Window>Workspace>[default] , and saw "save workspace"... so now I got my proper workspace saved... that will save me time almost everyday!! THANKS!

    After 15 years of using Illustrator, it's sick how much stuff I don't know. Of course a lot of stuff like that wasn't there before, but even using version 9 I know I could learn a trick a day all year if I just asked people here about all the things that drive me nuts with the program.

    I'll ask one, since there may be a few more Illustrator pros checking in:

    I have my accumulation of fonts forming into 2 different alphabetical sequences based on all the uninstalling & reinstalling of fonts that's been going on, and whatever other nonsensical illogical mind-of-their-own forces are at play... is there some way to correct them back into one alphebetical arrangement?

    ..and along the same lines... I used to just delete the AIprefs file, but now I can no longer find such a file?

    isign; you have all your fonts in windows/fonts right?

    why not copy them to a different directory, delete them, then reinstall all of them?

    hmm... sort of an interesting idea. There are 62 fonts that need to never be deleted though, so that makes your idea more complicated. I think I may try posting this question in an Adobe forum first, but your idea has some merit... but it would also lead to my problem recurring because I will always have to add & subtract fonts.

    You mean the standard windows fonts? I do believe they will delete. I have done this before for some reason, can't remember and I know it doesn't screw anything up. How many fonts do you have? On most of the machines I'm working on I have around 3000.
