  1. Opacity Doesn't Live Update when using Properties Panel + Keyboard

    AI Version: 25.2
    OS: MacOS 11.2.1
    Using CPU & GPU Preview

    Problem:


    • With an object selected, open the Properties Panel.

    • Click in the Opacity field and use the keyboard to increment the opacity up or down.

    • Note that the object's opacity doesn't change unless the change is accepted either by pressing the Return key, or clicking into the artwork.

    Expected Behaviour:


    • As the opacity is adjusted using the keyboard, the artwork should demonstrate the changed opacity.

    Notes:
    - If you use the Transparency Panel, and adjust the Opacity there, the keyboard commands are recognized as usual.

  2. A máscara de opacidade não é redesenhada em tempo real / Opacity mask does not redraw in real time

    Amigos, bom dia.

    Após algumas atualizações, tenho notado que o uso do recurso "Opacity mask" em meu Illustrator não consegue apresentar o resultado visual (redesenho) em tempo real. Se eu não forçar a visualização com "View / Outline (Command + Y)" o efeito não pode ser visto.

  3. Scaling incorrect when opening DXF files

    I have used Illustrator for years and am bringing DXF files into Illustrator scaled daily. Ive never had an issue til the 2021 upgrade. now no matter what the unit settings are in preferences, it will only bring in one scale.... tiny....
    I can no longer bring in full scale or even scale it other than tiny....
    Also Ill 21 files with PDF links embedded into them, no longer keep swatch attributes when they are layered onto the same object with another fill. The swatch falls away. I've also noticed the embedded PDF file with transparency attributes on an object…

  4. Improper transperancy handling

    when creating an object with a simple transparency, it renders different siting above a white background vs a white object. I've had someone else recreate to verify it's not just my install. See attached screen shot.

  6. Radial Repeat Shift angle constraint

    When resizing a radial repeat object, holding Shift does nothing.
    It is expected to constraint the rotation angle to 45°, but it does not.

    Holding Alt is expected to create copies, I guess, as well.

  8. Kalligraphiepinsel

    Hallo, ich habe einen ovalen Kalligraphiepinsel angelegt und einem Pfad zugewiesen und die Pfad-Form erhält einen kalligraphischen Kontrast. Soweit so gut. Klicke ich allerdings erneut auf die kalligrafische Linie, um sie erneut dem Pfad zuzuweisen (zum Beispiel, weil ich diesen verändert/verlängert habe), so ändert sich mit jedem Klick der Winkel im des Ovals. Ein Bug oder eine Voreinstellung, die ich noch nicht kenne? Vielen Dank für jede Hilfe.

  9. 3D - Extrude - Isometric Top is skewed so edge does not run parallel with Isometric - Right

    I made a square out of vertical rectangles of alternating colour and wanted to make it into each face of a cube.

    However, 3D - Extrude - Isometric Top (with no bevel or shading) effect is slightly skewed.

    Therefore, I cannot connect each anchor point to make a cube. See screenshot to see how the top's edge veers away from the right side.

  11. Illustrator 2021 - Effects causing app to crash

    I usually use the drop shadow effect on objects (effects > stylize > drop shadow) and have had no issues using it. However recently, Illustrator instantly crashes the moment I attempt to delete the effect. I've also had issues scaling an object with an inner glow effect. Illustrator would tell me that I have no RAM space available (even though I have 32 GB of it...) I usually have google chrome open but I doubt it's taking up THAT much space.

  13. The Operation Cannot be Completed due to an Unknown Error (CANT) 3D effect

    I am encountering an issue anytime I attempt to edit the Bevel and Extrude effect on my design. It keeps providing me with a vague error "The Operation Cannot Be Completed Due to an Unknown Error (CANT)" and it will not apply the effect or allow edits.

  14. Outer Glow producing odd glowing corners around objects

    When applying an outer glow, I get rectangular glowing corners around the objects with applied effects. Deleting a reapplying using a different setting solves the issue about 50% of the time. Something that has only happened since the last AI update.

  15. Crash after trying to delete crop marks fx

    Whenever I try to delete the crop marks effect on a document Illustrator just crashes. At first I thought it was because the document was made on a previews version of AI but it's also happening with new documents whenever I apply crop marks fx and then try to delete those crop marks later.
    I'm using latest version of Illustrator updated about 3 days ago.

    OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise
    Version 10.0.18363 Build 18363
    Other OS Description Not Available
    OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation
    System Manufacturer Dell Inc.

    System Type x64-based PC
    Processor Intel(R)…

  17. Reflect Across Vertical Axis does not account for Variable Stroke

    I was making a vector in Adobe Illustrator using Variable Stroke. I wanted to make a mirrored copy of my original left-facing drawing to have a right-facing character. But when I mirrored it, the Variable Stroke did not match the original.
    Attached is what I was working on, also labeling the three areas where the issue is most obvious. Note how the stroke thickness is not identical.

  18. Opacity mask not behaving as expected for object that crosses over itself.

    When I make a gradient opacity mask for a line object as shown, the opacity mask behaves as expected when the object overlaps another object (cyan rectangle; i.e. you can see the bottom object through the top object), but does not when it overlaps itself (magenta rectangle; i.e. the part of the object on the bottom is clipped by the shape of the object, rather than visible through the opacity mask like the separate object).
