Easier (rotating the canvas currently requires tapping the Gear icon then Rotate Canvas 90°) canvas rotation is requested quite often by people who use our drawing apps. So often, in fact, that I believe the team is currently discussing the possibility of incorporating a gesture to make it easier. Unfortunately, I don't know when it might happen... I just know it's on the "list."
About a full version of Illustrator CC for iPad... It's not that it's not our problem, it's really just that I have no idea what the plan is for that. Or even whether there is one.
I do share all feedback with the product team(s), so if there are more features you'd like to see in the app, definitely send them to us (either here or through the in-app feedback).
Thanks for taking the time to post.
Good to hear that the team may be considering incorporating gestures to allow for rotating the canvas/artboard.
Please forgive my crude comment about iPad and full Illustrator - just a frustrated wish from someone who can't afford a Cintiq and would rather not switch to a Windows tablet. Of course, I understand no one could comment on that question. This is Apple's issue, and I believe they know that a lot of professional designers would like to be running Illustrator on a tablet if they could.
That said, the Draw team has done an excellent job conceiving of and creating a feature set that is perfectly suited for quick sketching in the field, and then brought into Illustrator for further work. It's great!
Thanks for answering the post.
I too am interested in a pinch to rotate feature for AP Sketch and Draw. Really glad to hear it is being considered in a future version. Hoping it will be sooner rather than later.
It's requested a lot. For both apps. And I know it's coming. I just don't have a date yet.
Hang in there.
