Dear Adobe...

    I think the root of the problem is just the huge legacy these apps carry. Photoshop is 26 years old! Probably older than a lot of people here…

    There's a lot of code in there that remains from previous version, and I remember hearing that one reason why the UI is inconsistent is that a lot of the early UI was hard-coded.

    Add to that the fact that some people spend their whole workday inside Photoshop or Illustrator, and would get pretty mad if their beloved app's UI suddenly changed "for consistency's sake".

    So I too wish Adobe would fix these things, but I also know it's far from simple…
