  1. windows 7 illustator v24 failed to save with new terms pop up box closing despite accepting.

    I had a pop up today saying must accept new terms and conditions for people under business accounts/ team plans - which I am not but I clicked accept anyway. It said you couldnt keep using it if not.

    The warning illustrator would close if closing the window I assumed meant if not accepting but nope - it closed - it gave me save dialog box cool i thought. except that the save out failed ive just got the part save .tmp file and my last lot of work all missing,

  5. ショートカットキーが反応しなくなる

    Adobe XDと同時に起動し、アプリケーションの切り替えを行っているとillustratorのショートカットキーがすべて反応しなくなることがあります。
    illustratorの再起動でショートカットキーは使用可能になりますが、再度XDとの切り替えを行うと同様の症状が発生します。

  7. Can't ungroup a selection, when there's a blend within it

    If you have several groups and a blend, try to select them all and then ungroup. What AI does it throw an error at you, instead of ungroupping groups and leaving the blend as is.

  9. artboard blinkins when open multiple files

    I've noticed that when you select few / many files (.svg) and drag & drop to illustrator icon on doc (mac) - I mean you open it, Illustrator starts to open the files and artboard starts blinking very fast (black / white).
    It is very dangerous for people with epilepsy

  10. White pixel line around shapes

    Ever since Appearance was introduced, my artwork on screen suffers from a white pixel line around shapes. Seems a rendering problem: the line is not actually existing - zooming in does not make it thicker, it's always one pixel. Tried switching GPU off and on. No difference.
    The appearance of the black shape: Fill is black, Stroke is None.

  11. BUG: SVG export problem

    When I create a shape that is between a circle and a square, it is rendered as a circle in an SVG export, while a PNG export (via save for web) makes a good shape.

  13. round corners worked better before

    THe rounds corner options when selecting a shape worked a lot better before the latest update (24.1.1). Before when you had hard edges in a shape you pretty much could make round edges on every corner. Now it only appears a few places.

  14. Key anchor align mode gets activated when not actually needed

    Imagine I have an art I I want to move side points to be on the artboard's edge. There's a background underneath my piece and it's not locked (and I'm not in Outline mode) — so I can't marquee my 2 side points. What I do in this GIF is I click one point and then Shift+click another one. AI switches the mode to 'Key anchor', thinking that... I don't know what it's thinking :) and obviously pressing proper Align button does nothing.

    know what Key Anchor does :) But it's not what I want now. And it would be…

  15. missing instances

    I've been working with a png logo and have been copy-pasting it in numerous layers and artboards of my work.

    My AI crashed, so I closed it via task manager. When I restarted AI, my png logo is gone from all the artboards. I can see that there's an "instance" of it (a black square", but the logo isnt registering. Tried to export, and it came out with an artwork without the logo.

    File 08 are the blanks after the crash
    File 10 has the logo that went missing.

  16. CC 2020 AI and InDesign Crashing and Freezing

    Having major issues with both Illustrator and InDesign 2020.

    For Illustrator, if I double click an AI file in a finder window it crashes 100% of the time on launch, which in turn deletes all recent docs from AI's start up menu. Things are a bit more stable when launching the app and then opening a file, but still seems to easily crash when doing a simple task such as electing the font dropdown menu (not even selecting a font).

    InDesign is more troublesome. The program will frequently freeze even after opening a document that has a link that has…

  17. embedded images cause longs delays in opening file illustrator 24.0.2

    When opening some files with embedded images, there are very long delays before the file finally opens.

    I have had success when I flatten the embedded image, it then opens fine.

  19. Illustrator 2020 gradient bug

    I am using Mac Os Catalina 10.15.2 with Illustrator 2020. When I close a file that contains an element with a circular gradient fill applied and re-open the file, the colour gradient disappears and appears black. I have tried saving as ai, eps and pdf. all 3 files still produce a black element on reopening.

  20. "Double Click To Isolate" preference does not work

    Using the direct selection tool to try and double-click your way to grabbing a grouped object within another group of grouped objects fails. It simply doesn't select any of the other elements. This is a paralysing bug that may well see me dumping my CC subscription and going back to Illustrator CS5 or 6. From what I read, this bug is old so why hasn't Adobe fixed it?
    Attached is the file with the bug. Try double-clicking the green nodes on the chart with the direct selection tool. It should grab all the dots. Then expand out and grab the…
