  2. Library text asset can't save style

    v22.1, Windows, 64bit

    When I try to add text with a modified appearance to the library I get;

    "Only basic appearances are supported for Text in Libraries. Advanced appearances have been dropped to add text to the current Library."

    Or; "Couldn't save text asset having style. Remove the styles and try again”.

    Seriously – no text styles in the library now? face palm

    Ok, so 'Text library asset' is a thing now… whatever it’s supposed to be for, it’s braking basic library functionality.

    If I want to add text with an advanced appearance to a library (ie. the ONLY sort…

  3. Notepad like text editor for better rewrites

    Until Outline to text is added could you please add an inbuilt text editor which can make retyping text a much less hassle.
    I want it to be able to help me match my newly rewritten type best match the outline converted text.

  4. Right-click or Icon Shortcut for Refine Paragraph Styles

    Editing type styles on the text element and then applying the style back to the master style is a familiar workflow to many of us especially coming from InDesign. I advocate Adobe add either a right-click option or icon for easy access to this ability.

    Thanks

  6. Bring Back the Glyphs Panel

    I just updated to the latest and greatest Illustrator tonight. I'm in Typography Workspace and for the life of me, I can't find the Glyphs Panel. It appears to be gone. I can see all the other type tools I expect. But, not Glyphs. Is there a different way to access the OT alternate letter forms? The Glyphs Panel used to by under the Windows menu. Not today. :-( I've highlighted individual letters and right clicked on 'em, tried different Workspaces,. etc. No luck. If there is another way to access alternate letter forms, I'd love to know what it…

  7. Emoji Support

    I tried to type the emoji on my Windows keyboard and it comes up as boxes. I can type them in Excel-- it seems like I should be able to in illustrator too!

  8. Since the recent update, some fonts randomly deactivate in both Illustrator and Indesign. Also when typing a font name in the search box of

    Since the recent update (Dec2017), some fonts randomly deactivate approx every half an hour, in both Illustrator and Indesign. Also when typing a font name in the search area of the type window, the letters jumble around making it impossible to search and jump directly to the font I want - it's incredibly frustrating and time wasting.
    Can you please tell me how to fix this bug

  9. Anyone know the difference between a Paragraph Return ^p vs Forced Line Break ^n

    Adobe says they made a purposeful change to Illustrator's Text Selection features. What do you think? Feature change or a unintended bug/change?

    I suspect most users never use a forced line break, or know much about it.
    So this illogical change in text selection to skip over selection just a line and jumps to a whole paragraph will never be seen. Doubt there was a user Feature request to change this also.

    Illustrator 2018 changed how text is selected with triple clicks and using UP/Down Arrows.

    A simple return/enter is a ^p, paragraph return.

    A Shift-Return is a ^n, forced…

  12. Variable Fonts in Paragraph/Character Styles

    This may well be planned already, but I would love to be able to edit variable font axes inside the paragraph style dialogue. This would be very valuable in keeping things consistent.

  14. Type / Character

    Left alignment for all fonts and Characters. As we all know when you type in Illustrator the alignment is not curate with the alignment tool or even justified tools. It would be really nice if the AI team could fix this issue.

    See the attachment as an example. The only way to fix this is create outlines and then align.

  15. InCopy Assignments

    Just as InDesign lets designers can assign InCopy assignments to text blocks, can the same functionality be done for Illustrator?

  16. An option in type preferences to make fonts sized the same as the entered value.

    When I enter Helvetica and size it to 6 inches, the font produced is only 4 inches. When I type in a letter size, I want that size, Adobe seems to add part of the base line to the font size.

  17. Variable Concept and Legacy Typefaces

    The new version of Minion and Myriad are EXCELLENT, and I am very excited by the possibilities that this opens up. But I work in Art production, and for consistency, I need access to the legacy version of these typefaces. May we have access to both?

  19. Text Alignment

    The Text font reflects the actual physical font size. We're doing sign, size of the font is very important to us.
