  2. Legacy blur lost when pasting into a new document.

    An object with a legacy blur loses it's setting when copying and pasting into a new document. The blur is still listed in appearance, but there is no value and effectively no blur.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Blending Modes BUG in Ai


    1. Version of Adobe Illustrator - 22.1
      Machine: iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
      Graphics: AMD Radeon R9 M380 2048 MB

    2. The issues -
      Using Blending Modes (specifically Screen/Color Burn).
      Worked both in on-screen preview mode & saved as a jpg, Thursday, April 12th, 2018.
      Today, Monday April 16th, they are not displaying properly on-screen, in print, or in saved file preview. (if color mode is switched to RGB, blending mode displays more properly, but not in Overprint Preview)
      Screen blending mode disappears/Color Burn retains only some parts of the graphic in black.
      Does not translate between cc programs either.

    Please get in touch with us at sharewithai@adobe.com . Please give a reference to this post so that we can identify you.
    Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.
    We may also need your help with file to get this internally reproduced and then subsequently attempt to resolve it.

    Warm Regards,
    Ashutosh Chaturvedi | Sr. Quality Engineering Manager – Illustrator

  9. Convert to shape tool

    When using the convert to shape tool / ellipse:

    Select circle imported from PDF that has 100's of points around perimeter. Use convert to shape, ellipse option. If I set the tool to "relative", and the value to zero "0", then the converted shape should match the original. Instead, the shape is larger, because it is using the size of the box inscribed in the circle instead of the diameter (or width and height). Please fix this.

  10. Illustrator 24.3 on Windows(10): Warp effect not showing preview even though preview selected

    Even though I have checked the box to show previews for the Warp effect, changing styles does not show a preview of the styles. The only preview that is shown is the very first style that was chosen.

  12. Spot color gaussian blur does not print out when printing separations to film

    This must be a bug because it worked in previous versions. Spot color gaussian blur does not print out when doing separations.

    Illustrator 24.2.3

  13. Free Distort effect ignores Drop Shadow effect within

    I have an art with a drop shadow applied to it. The art is grouped with another object, with no shadow. The top-level group has a Free Distort effect applied. While the vector is distorted, the raster shadow stays undeformed.

    I tried to test it with other raster-based effects and Ai (released one) just crashed on me (report sent).

  14. 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

  15. 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‹.

    EVERY TIME I try to use the Unite function on the pathfinder, I end up with the spinning wheel of death.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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!!!
