  1. Illustrator CC 22.1 destroyed my file

    22.1 (released today March 15, 2018) destroyed a complex drawing, exhibiting very odd drawing mistakes leading me to quit. Upon reopening the file was corrupted and a single object remained. I suggest NOT updating until this is solved.

      Tried to erase the preferences etc. but it reappears not immediately, but after two or three steps for sure... What can I do?

  3. Placing/updating AI file links in INDD after update takes a very very very long time.

    After updating AI and INDD, placing AI files into INDD is taking a very long time. I made an update to an AI file that was placed into an existing INDD files that contains 13 placed AI files. I only updated a few of the linked AI files. Prior to the AI and INDD update, updating these placed links took a few seconds each max. Now, just to update the two links takes about 2 minutes.

    This MAY be an AI bug, but I don't know how make that determination as I updated bothat the same time.

  5. Vector shapes show as black

    When opening an .ai file on one particular PC in our workplace (a file that was created on a different PC) most of the vector shapes show as black-filled shapes.

    We have multiple copies of Illustrator (all version 22.0.1 (64-bit) in our workplace and on every other PC the artwork displays properly (with no black shapes).
    Turning on 'Overprint Preview' on the troublesome PC fixed the issue.
    On every other PC turning this option on or off has no effect.
    If we create a new file in Illustrator on this troublesome PC then we don't experience any problems?
    I have…

  7. Vector shapes distorted

    If I am working on a graphic made up of many different shapes, the individual shapes will start to appear as distorted in shape and color, especially if I start altering the pattern or moving shapes around, then the whole graphic just starts to randomly distort certain shapes. Making it really difficult to focus on creating a pattern or image.

  8. Illustrator CC 2018 - CEP on Windows, unable to debug

    Currently I am unable to take more than 1-2 steps in CC extension code when debugging with the Chrome browser attached remotely. When I do so the CC Extension panel clears itself, and the browser does a refresh. I do not see this problem on MacOS.

    Are you by any chance saving it a network share over macOS 10.13?

    Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . 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.

    Warm Regards,

  11. Send to back

    I am busy working on a big logo project on illustrator, using only one layer. I started filling up the art-boards and space available. However, after only using about a third of the available space the send to back feature wouldn't work. It would register the object as infront of the other object but it wouldn't show the object I placed infront.

    I am a 14 year old student at the International School Eindhoven.

  13. Frozen

    I am using Illustrator CC 2018
    Whenever I am working with type, if I want to change the kerning, the software gives the message in the attached file & completely freezes. I can't exit or do anything. I have to force quit the application in order to get it to work again, which makes me lose a majority of my work and then have to redo.

  19. Multiple Bugs

    Alrighty, there are a few different things going wrong here. The version of Illustrator I'm using is CS3 on Windows. One of my issues is that when I'm using the selection tool, it won't select an object if I simply click; if I want to move an object or simply select it to re-scale it, I have to click and drag my mouse over it. This makes my life difficult, as it's a serious pain to select objects, and it's extremely annoying.
    Another issue I'm experiencing is difficulty duplicating objects. Alt-Drag isn't working on objects; if I want to duplicate…
