  1. Why can't you make snap work again?

    I work with die cuts and i need precision. Don't remember from which version but illutrator sucks at snapping now. I mean all shapes i make get 20.001 or 19.999 and try using compound, it doesn't work! You can't draw with precision anymore.

  3. 24.0.1 NEW: Missing center handles for rectangles (objects)!

    What are you doing Adobe???

    In 24.0.1 the center handles for thin rectangles are gone? What are you doing? After you "fixed" the missing center handles for lines somehow, you thought it would be a good idea to create the same mess with rectangles, now? Is there anybody watching the programmers what they do?

    It is impossible to scale a thin rectangle, as center handle is gone, now, and there is NO center stretch option showing up while hovering between the edge handles but the absolutely unnecessary rotation option.

    PLEASE FIX THIS!

  4. Illustrator Brush/Blob brush Lag Issue

    Windows 10 Pro
    After latest Illustrator update, all brush tools are lagging - blob brush & brush. (using either mouse and tablet) Before an update everything works fine.
    Restart and making more disk space didn't help.

  5. Blend tool not working properly

    Blend tool not working with shapes that contain gradients. (preview box is greyed out as well)
    It won't work from the start with shapes that already contain gradients and only produces black shapes and an error message when the color is applied after making the blend.

  7. Illustrator CC 23.0.2 Align Distribute not working correctly MacOS Mojave 10.14.3

    Align Distribute. If I do not have the window open and I select the objects & the key object then open the Align window, the distribute input field does not allow for input. I have to deselect the key object then reselect the key object then it will allow me to enter the input field. Also occasionally if I enter a distribute measurement of 1" or an integer it does not read it as 1", instead it reads it as 0.1 but shows up as 1 until I do a save as not a save. If I do a save…

  8. Stylus pen

    Illustrator Cc2019 crashes when using Lenovo Yoga Surface pen in a Touch mode.
    The surface pen is drawing in both Pen and Pencil tools but Illustrator crushes after a minute or two without an option of reporting.
    It takes 7/8 file openings to finish a tracing illustration.

  9. freeform gradient colours change

    If you have an object with a normal gradient, you can switch between linear and radial with no issue. If you then change to freeform, your colours change to a preset range of colours and thus have to input the original colours.
    The existing colours should remain a part of the freeform similar to switching from linear and radial.

  12. gradient tool won't work on multiple selected items

    Multiple selected items will not respond to the gradient tool anymore. I have to adjust the gradient in one item at a time. Selecting multiple gradient items and trying to use the gradient tool with lock all of them in solid color, and the only way I have found to correct this is to delete the fill from all items, and reselect your gradient.

    also, the "gaussian blur" delay when using the gradient tool is a total nightmare.

  13. Win 10. Mouse scaling creates rectangles

    Whenever I try to scale an object (could be anything, vector, type, raster) using the mouse Illustrator creates some weird snaps and in the point of the snap it creates a rectangle.

    Scaling continues, I can keep scaling the original object but it has created a new rectangle where it snapped. Snapping position is random, it happens even after disabling snapping in the View>Snap to... menu.

    The new object behaves slightly differently in that it has a slower preview as far as I can tell. When moving it it just shows up in the new location when dragging, does not…

  17. Blend Tool doesn't create/show a spine when blending between two open paths

    Normally when creating a blend between two objects with the Blend tool (or Object > Blend > Make), Illustrator creates and shows a spine that can be manipulated with the Pen, Direct Selection and other tools. This spine makes it easy to edit the path of the blend with the Pen and Direct Selection tools.

    When creating a blend between two open paths, however, Illustrator does not create or show this spine.

  18. brush pressure lag

    the new update makes the brush with a calligraphic pressure sensitivity lag on the beginning of the stroke. it makes it next to impossible to get a clean start to the line.

  19. Cannot select objects with selection tool

    If I have a layer set to preview mode and it is above another layer that is not in preview mode, I cannot select objects in the preview mode layer when the objects are above an object in the lower layer. I have tried zooming in as close as I can and the selection tool will still not select an item in the preview mode layer. I can get around this by hiding the non-preview mode layer or selecting the object in the layers panel.

  20. Selection Tolerance for text or drawing is off and very annoying

    Using Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.4 with Retina 5k display
    Illustrator CC 2018 version 22.1

    Please reference the attached image.
    Selecting a line. The curser is clearly on the line but the dot is highlighted instead.
    Selecting text with the text tool: the curser is clearly over the text, but the it is highlighting the circle around the text instead.
    Selecting dimension text: the curser is clearly over the text, but the tool shows text on a path.

    This is even more annoying when selecting a point. Click 20 times then give up and zoom in.

    And it is…
