  1. EVERYTHING Vanished

    I was simply working on a design today, then all of the sudden, a small popup flashed at the top of the screen and then went away immediately. BOOM, Every single file that has anything to do with that piece of work vanished completely off my computer. The original picture (.jpg) and my recent saves (.pdf and .ai) are nowhere on my computer.

    Why?

  4. Illustrator won't open .AI or Jpg files

    Hi,

    I'm currently using Intel Core i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz on Windows 10 with version 24.1.2 of Illustrator.

    I only started using software today (so i'm very much a beginner) and I have gone to open .ai and .jpeg but a tab pops up stating 'the file "abc" is an unknown format and cannot be opened'.

    Can you help me fix this please.

    I can't find any answers anywhere.

    Thankyou,

    Harry

  8. Locked Layers won't allow file to save

    If layers are locked, AI file won't save and close. It will continue to prompt you to save multiple times but won't allow you to close the file due to the asterisk. The asterisk will only leave if you save the file with the layers unlocked.

  9. Illustrator 2020 (24.1.1, windows 10) cannot open file

    Cannot open one of my illustrator files.
    Every time I try to open it illustrator freezes and doesn't unfreeze until closed. I have uninstalled and reinstalled illustrator, restarted my laptop, tried turning off the firewall. I tried attaching it to this comment but it wouldn't load.
    thanks

  10. Brush strokes disappearing when exported

    Hello!

    I am completely new to illustrator and thought i would use this spare time to see if i could create my own new logo!

    I am trying to use a 'watercolour' brush stroke behind my text in two different colours which i have done successfully, however when i go to export my image, the brush strokes are appearing on the small preview image, but when the image is opened the strokes disappear. Is there something i need to do to be able to view these in large when exported?

    Thanks,

    Amy

    Illustrator unexpectedly quit which created some recovered files upon the reopening of the application. When trying to save this file, Illustrator quit again. This keeps happening and I am unable to continue with my work.

    I tried updating Illustrator however the same issue is happening.

    Operating system: mac catalina 10.15.3
    Adobe Illustrator version 24.1.2

  12. Nothing works under the file tab

    When I click on any of the options under the file tab absolutely nothing happens. Cant save, place, export, create new, etc. It seems like everything else is working perfectly. I can hear my computer whirl when I click on things like it’s working and registering, but when I click on anything under file I hear nothing, like it’s not registering that I’m trying to save. I really need to export these files for a project by next week so this is urgent!!

  13. update deleted new versions of files

    I updated Illustrator to version 24.1.1 3 days ago. I've opened some files to discover that the most recent changes I made to them have been deleted and the version of the files are about a week old. I know I saved these files with new changes but those changes are no longer there. Is it possible to fix this bug and restore the previous files from before the update? I don't know what in the update triggered deleting these new changes.

  14. Illustrator to Photoshop broken

    I am trying to bring my Illustrator drawing into Photoshop. Exporting from Illustrator to PSD format is giving me errors so I am trying to copy from Illustrator and paste into Photoshop as Smart Objects. This was one big object that I pasted into Photoshop. In Photoshop it displays just that one object. When I open the Smart Object in Illustrator I get the full drawing. I'm not sure which program is at fault but starting with Illustrator since the export function is failing.

  15. I'm being auto signed out every night

    I'm being auto signed out every night. In the morning it shows a message to save open files but it only gives me the option to save, not save as so I have to overwrite important files or lose all the work I did the night before.

  16. dimensions change when changing rgb to cmyk

    When I set a new artboard with specific pixel dimensions and ppi, I go to save the artwork as a JPEG and it completely changes my dimensions. I've played around with this for hours with no success. I've noticed that if I change the format from rgb to cmyk, this affects the size. This is a bug that needs to be fixed. Thanks

  18. DRAW Projects can't be shared to Illustrator

    I am posting this as a BUG because I can't believe that this was intentional design--it must be a complete BUG.

    We can share individual drawings from Adobe DRAW to Illustrator, but when you have an entire PROJECT of drawings, the share option is limited to very LOW-resolution images on a web link or sending them to Behance as a portfolio piece.

    You don't want us to share a VERY BAD LOW RESOLUTION drawing to people do you? That can't be intentional.

    And why on earth can't we just send an entire project to our computer for Illustrator? I could…
