  1. 3D Extrude and Bevel

    When I apply 3D Extrude and Bevel with cap set to 0 and surface set to no shading my image now has a background. Now I tried a few things to correct the image in 3D Extrude and bevel and the entire image is gone. The image frame is still there.

    This occurred after the latest update to Adobe Illustrator 2020 24.1.2

  3. Ofset path bug in 24.1 version - horrible metric precision...

    Problem with dimensions after using offset path. Just look - if you have square 100 x 100 mm, and want to make -4 mm offset path - new square is not 92 x 92mm, but... 92.0001 x 92.0001. This is nightmare. See attached. Adobe, I hope this bug will be fixed?

  4. BUG: Envelope Distort (with Anti Alias option on) changes colour values of embedded images.

    When trying to use Envelope Distort (eg Mesh) and the 'Anti Alias' option to maintain clarity, if the artwork features embedded images (eg a multichannel PSD that must be embedded for Envelope Distort action) it is clearly seen the results with and with AA active are different. Only without use of AA will the colour values remain faithful to the original pre-distorted image.

    Whilst I would expect some changes along edges, etc. that would benefit the most from using AA, it is seen across the entire image. This is not correct and renders the Envelope Distort function unusable for these…

  5. Problem with Flatten Transparency

    Hello,
    I found a but in Illustrator CC 2019 and 2020 MacOS 10.14.6 and Windows 10 v1903. I will report this to Adobe.

    A. I create a glas effect on a non circle object with blending dark to light red and a black and white gradient mixed with ›screen‹ to it.
    B. I flatten the transparency with the highest or other option. Always is a clip group (1), that shound be automatical removed. For better seeing, I put it on top of the group ›after flatten tranparency‹.

  7. Transform effect vanished from Appearance Panel. Multiple times

    After using Distort & Transform/Transform from the Appearance Panel, I noticed that this effect was missing from the list of effects that I'd used. As you can see in the attached image, Transform is not in the list. The long shadow on this text is created using that effect and it is still live, but there's no way to edit it since it is not showing up in the Appearance Panel. I started over and created it once more and once again, it wasn't in the panel. I tried a 3rd time and it worked as expected.

  9. Free distort effect with Freeform gradient

    In 23.1 Free distort effect applied to a path filled with freeform gradient, distorts only path, but not a fill, making it appear clipped with distorted contour.

  10. Blurring is said to be possible but is not

    There is no tool for blurring detail despite the fact that three ways of doing this are on the menu.

  11. Editing text with warp doesn't update

    Editing text that has a Warp effect applied does not update on screen or even in a saved PDF until the warp effect is turned off then on again in the Appearance panel. See the attachments where I have changed the bolded word 'egg' to a roman type weight. In the second warped screenshot it is still bold. This bug has only started since the very latest general release of Illustrator: v24.1. Occurs in MacOS 10.15.3 and in MacOS 10.14.6

  12. 3D Extrude & Bevel Not Recognizing holes

    Updated Ai CC today (6Mar'20) and getting some weird holes closing when trying to render. My frustration has led me to uncover that the holes (created using shape maker, but also tried pathfinder and used compound paths) only break once the outermost edges are altered. Find attached screen recording.
    Please fix!!!

  13. Opacity issues with white

    Opacities are not working correctly. When I have a shape with with a normal opacity set to a level below 100 and above another shape that is white. The white appears as a color underneath and it should not. it should be invisible. Also multiply effect is producing incorrect color values. Please see attached image.

  15. Feather does not gradient to transparent

    When 'feather' is applied to (in my instance) a black box overlaying a colored background, the black appears as a conspicuous grey.

  16. Rasterize not working well on spot colors

  17. Offset path small values results in skewed lines

    Offset path small values (in my example it's 0.02 mm) results in skewed lines, compared to original text it's applied to.

  18. Random bugs with extensive use of Transform Effect

    I happen to have linked files (typically PNG files) inside a group of objects.

    A Transform Effect duplicates the group.
    Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform
    Here, I typically set a certain number of horizontal and/or vertical move and a number of copies for the whole group including a linked PNG.

    (Actually, this is a way to bypass the issue of library symbols that cannot include linked files.)

    Every time I open the AI document, the original group is visible, the duplicate groups can be seen, but not the linked PNG inside the group, both in the original group…

  19. Gradient, colouring and effect-error

    The operations weren't particularly complex, a shape won't change fill between gradient, colour or even empty. The appearance panel is empty, and still there's no possible to change or remove the fill. I tried adding a gaussian blur, after which the entire figure disappeared. I thought it might be a preview issue so I exported it, but it was gone there as well. I attach a screenshot. Right before it happened I tried adding a complex clipping mask (but undid it).

  20. Drop Shadow, Outer Glow, Etc. renders incorrectly on large polygons angled lines only.

    When I make a drop shadow, outer glow etc. there are places on the shadow that end abruptly in intervals. I make a triangle or any polygon (even a rectangle that is rotated). Go to Effect>Illustrtator Effect>Stylize>Drop Shadow. Multiply:75%:0":0":0.5". Color Black. I've tried other colors and other settings for Blur and Mode. This does the exact same thing using Outer Glow. I have a 66" x 36" artboard on the examples below.
