How to Display Toolbar, Tools and Palette in Adobe Illustrator…
So this keeps happening and maddening. I am by no means any kind of an expert with AI but I do dabble. MANY times I have lost the toolbar and palette when working in Adobe Illustrator.. and everytime I have to search internet for a fix.
Here is the easy way- You have most likely hit the TAB key and lost it.
You can retrieve and get back toolbar and palette in Ai by either re- hitting the TAB key. OR go to WORKSPACE menu and click Basic or whatever workspace you use.
You wil instantly get your AI toolbar and palette back. Hope this helps!
