  1. 3D Revolve Clipping

    3D Revolve is clipping the front faces. I can get the faces to appear when the object is in a different rotation, when it object is parallel with the view. I've tried this with both a normal path and a compound path.

    I think the plane the 3D object is being rendered to is too far forward.

  2. Arc Warp Effect with Unexpected Results (Combined with Masks)

    When applying an arc effect shouldn't the mask dictate how the arc effect works and not the larger contents of the mask?

    The results I am getting now appear to be possibly impacted by the larger/complex contents of the mask.

    I have used a larger arc amount of 15% in the images below to exaggerate the difference I am seeing between the simplified design/mask and the second design with a larger pattern inside the mask.

    Is this working as intended or is this an issue?

    Computer Specs:
    macOS 10.15.4
    iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
    Processor: 4GHz Quad-Core Intel Core…

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Issues while in 3D Revolve. In the Ai 24.0.1 - MAC OS 10.13.6

    While in 3D Revolve, I am trying to apply a created Symbol onto a half circle with a gradient. Within the dialog box, there is a message that says "the gradient will be rastorized", which changes my gradient from "red to black gradient" to a "balck and white gradient". That changes my whole effect.

  9. Effects Preview Checkbox Has No Effect After First Check

    Version 24.0 (64-bit)

    When applying an effect to a path in Illustrator, checking the "Preview" checkbox will preview that effect, but unchecking the box does not return the path back to its original shape. To test:

    Use the pen tool to draw a multi-segment shape.
    Select the shape
    Click Effect->Distort & Transform->Roughen
    Click the Preview checkbox (the effect should be applied)
    Click the Preview checkbox again (the effect will not be removed)

    I've tested this with most of the previewable effects in the Effects menu and they all behave the same.

  10. Free Distort doesn't apply to certain gradient strokes

    I was working on a type effect when I realized the Free Distort filter (found under Effect > Distort & Transform > Free Distort) doesn't apply when the selected object uses a stroke with a gradient that is applied along or across the stroke. Is this intentional? I hope it isn't since it doesn't seem intentional.

    Here's how I did it.
    Create a rectangle. Make sure it has a fill color. Then add a stroke and pick a gradient. Change the stroke style to be either the second or third option. Then apply the Free Distort filter to the object…

  11. Stop selecting objects when I click on their effect

    Stop selecting objects when I click on an effect.

    I have a rectangle with a long, soft drop shadow. I now can no longer select anything that is technically 'under' the drop shadow, because clicking on the drop shadow selects the object casting it. This is really really bad and extremely counterintuitive.

    I'm smart enough to know which object is casting the shadow because I put it there. If I wanted to select the object casting the shadow, I would have clicked on it. Now I can't click on the thing I really want to click on — all the…

  12. Symbols | Mapping stroke to 3D-Model will distort stroke

    Hi together,

    recently I came accross a mapping bug with a stroke ( width 0.2 Pt ) applied to a waving flag shape used in a symbol that was mapped to a 3D model.

    All details can be found at Adobe Illustrator User Forum here:
    Symbols | Mapping stroke to 3D-Model will distort stroke
    Laubender Mar 21, 2019
    https://forums.adobe.com/message/10989571#10989571

    Workarounds like expanding the stroke and working with an extra path element stacked behind the flag shape did not help.

    The only workaround that will help is rendering the elements to an image and implement the placed and not linked image…

  13. Twist effect does not act on a group as a whole...

    When applying [Effects -> Distort and Transform -> Twist] to a group, the effect is applied on an individual object level and not on the group as a whole.

  16. Text with effects becomes a group of text and rendered raster image. Effect is no longer 'live'

    Text with effects becomes a group of text and rendered raster image. Effect is no longer 'live'
    Text block is now a group with a raster image for the drop shadow. I have to reapply the drop shadow in order to correctly edit the text block.

  19. Artistic effects converting artwork to black

    Attempting to apply any Effects>Effect Gallery will render the vector artwork into black and white. Thinking it was a Pantone conflict, I've tried conversion to CMYK with same results.

  20. Stroke weight reverts to previous scale when embedding after rotating a graphic.

    AI CC 22.1

    I had an linked .pdf at 10% scale, which I rotated 90 degrees, then scaled up by 1000%, then I embedded the file. The strokes in the artwork reverted back to 10% size. If I repeat the procedure, but do not rotate the file first, then the stoke retains the enlarged size.
