  1. Illustrator v23.0.1 will not open files from the desktop action. Must open via Open Menu.

    I'm having a minor problem opening AI files from the desktop with this new version. It won't show the document, and only shows the launch screen, and there I see the icon for my document, but even when clicking on that it won't load. I have to quit AI, relaunch and from there open my document via Illustrator's Open menu.

  2. PDF export no longer represents brushes used correctly

    I have used some vector brushes in illustrato (see highlights). When file saved as a pdf the brushes no longer correctly represent what's in the file, they seem to lose a lot of their transparency. I sell the mentioned brushes on exchange (HighlightsandShadows Brushes) as well so I would like this fixed. Both viewing the pdf file and opening in ai show the wrong results.
    This problem has occurred since upgrading both mac os and illustrator to latest

    However if i open the ai file in shop it looks as it should.

  3. SVG text export inconsistent failure 23.0.1

    On SVG export, one text node receives ID as expected, the other is wrapped in a <g> and given the id that should be on the text node (which has no id).

    I don't know how to produce this result—it's happening intermittently in a large existing file. I was only able to whittle it down to an example, but this system won't let me attach an illustrator file (lol)

  4. Batch exporting ai>psd does not work in latest Illustrator update.

    Batch exporting does not work in latest update. The images appear to process, and as each image is processed, there is a message that a photoshop file is being created. However, the end result files are the same ai files that I began with. Using Mac OS 10.14.

  7. Illustrator won't export SVGs - V. 23.0.1

    When trying to export (for screens) artboards and/or assets, it does create subfolders but won't export any SVGs.

    It does export PNGs etc but not SVGs.

  9. Save for Web

    Hi,

    This problem has persisted for a long time. On the image I have attached you can see that there is a vertical white line to left of the red square. When exporting the white line is still there – the only way to avoid it is to have the graphics stretched beyond the artboard before exporting.

    Why has this never been fixed??

  10. the letter "i" is sometimes not exported to SVG

    the letter "i" is sometimes not exported to SVG..
    For example: i tried to export the following paragraph to SVG:
    "Synchronization job is designed to perform file transfer between multiple agents back and forth, or perform one-way file transfer. Files in the shares can be modified, new file added and some deleted, and these changes synced to other agents in real time."

    the word "file" always gets exported as "fle"

  12. Use of Asset Export panel modifies existing SVG when closing without saving changes

    When using the Asset Export panel in Illustrator, if an SVG is exported with the same name as the currently open file, when that file is closed without saving changes, the existing file is modified.

    Specifically, a <metadata> element is added to the SVG, which results in unexpected behaviour when trying to use the SVG in an HTML document for example.

    This is part of my current workflow because Illustrator creates better SVG exports than XD. Therefore I am exporting an SVG from XD, then opening it in, and re-exporting it from, Illustrator. Every time I repeat that process, I…

  13. Not Responding every time PDF saved

    Every time I save my work as a PDF file my Illustrator freezes for up to 10 minutes at a time. This makes productivity EXTREMELY slow and frustrating!

  14. Saving as PDF includes Illustrator layers when "Create Acrobat Layers from Top-Level Layers" is turned off

    I often iterate ideas on multiple layers, then use the "Save as PDF" option to export a clean version with inactive/hidden layers omitted using "Create Acrobat Layers from Top-Level Layers" de-activated.

    However, I have noticed recently that when I re-open PDF files saved in this manner, the hidden Illustrator layers are still present, when the hidden data should have been omitted from the PDF.

    Please correct this, as it's causing Illustrator to generate PDF files that are larger than they need to be, with the inclusion of hidden layers, which may also include reference images and templates not needed in…

  17. Hitting "enter" key when specifying page range of 'Save to PDF' on mac broken

    Running AI on Mac 10.13.6 with AI 22.1.
    On all programs, when a dialog box is 'highlighted' you can hit 'enter' which will do that action. There is a new bug on save to PDF on Mac at least. Should be very easy to fix guys!

    When you Save as PDF, and you have a multi-artboard file - if you want to save out a couple of the pages to PDF, you click 'Range' and type the page range, ie. 2-3. Usually I would always do this and then hit enter, as there is no point picking up the mouse.

    2.The steps you were taking when you experienced the issues:

    4.Your actual result:
    A DXF file in imperial (inch) units. All my files are laser-cut 25,4 times too big.
