  1. Dynamic symbols automatically expands (2)

    When placing a dynamic symbol on an artboard, then re-opening the document it becomes "expanded" - Link to symbol breaked. This only occurs with dynamic symbols. Now with video attached. …Could it be that that the symbol has another symbol within it?

  3. Stock Single Action Download?

    There's no forum for Stock Photos so I decided to post here - Why is downloading an Adobe Stock image not at least a double-action before downloading? I went to see more of a photo, miss-clicked and before I could stop it, the image started downloading and I was minus one image credit for an image I can't use. Tech support told me they would issue a "one-time" image credit, but this reeks of opportunism. If the system had simply asked me if I was sure I wanted to download I would have declined, but it started automatically on an…

    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.

  7. Cannot check ppi of an image in cc2018

    In cc2017 when you were resizing an image you could check its ppi, in cc2018 this is not possible. I checked in info panel with the image selected but this information is not even there.

  10. Zoom to mouse location

    Prevously when you zoom with the Mouse (magic Mouse 2) it would zoom to the location of the pointer. Now it seems to just zoom to a random point. I move the mouse pointer and it still zooms to the random point. I want to hover my mouse somewhere and then zoom to that position like previous.

  11. recent screen: thumbnail vs list view

    Since this last CC update, the LIST button does not work on the recent screen when the application first opens. It is stuck in thumbnail view. This affects ALL the adobe software that I use, illustrator, photoshop, indesign, premier.
    Please advise if a fix is in the works.
    thanks.

  13. Align Stroke isn't allowing me to place stroke on outside or inside of line on certain items.. Both options are greyed out.

    Since latest update, Align Stroke isn't allowing me to place stroke on outside or inside of the line on certain items. I'm noticing this on both text and vector objects with "holes".

  14. Clipping path in psd file does't work in Illustrator.

    On macOS Sierra (Illustrator CC 2018).

    Clipping path of psd file does't work in Illustrator CC 2018.
    The full of the psd image was shown in Illustrator, ignoring its clipping path.
    Same problem has occured in older versions of Illustrator (probably CC or later).

    There are two conditions for this problem to occur.
    One is that the name of the clipping path has Japanese characters.
    And the other is that a Mac's system language is set to English.

    As a test, I tried to change my Mac's system language to Japanese from English, this problem was solved.
    Or changing the…

  15. Embeded image in symbol

    I am using Adobe Illustrator CC 2018.

    I am using a symbol that has an embedded image in it. When I re-link the image and embed the new image it does not stay when the symbol is exited. The symbol will also not allow me to delete the embedded image.

    In previous versions of Illustrator once the image is embedded and the symbol exited, the image remains and is placed across all the symbols.

  17. There are so many bugs my brain is too fried to write them in. I can't do anything. Every two minutes something goes wrong.

    Description says all.

    I have an image with a bounding box that's extremely large (no, there's nothing else in the layers panel).

    I have tried to export an object and was given the option for two different ones, even though there is only one (nope, no hidden duplicates).

    Handles were missing when using direct select tool. Came back randomly for no reason.

    And on and on and on.

    You need to beta these 'updated' products before you encourage those of us who have paying clients and no time for this **** to download a new version.

    I'm always excited for…

  18. Error using picas

    This error has existed in Illustrator since at least version 10, in 2001.


    1. Switch units to Picas in Preferences > Units… or by right-clicking in the ruler and selecting Picas.


    2. Select any object.


    3. Go to Object > Transform > Move…


    4. Enter a negative value higher than -1p0. e.g. -0p9.


    5. Watch as the value is converted to a positive and the object moves to the right, or don, not to the left or up.


    In earlier versions of Illustrator this bug exited across the application in any dialogue that excepted a distance, including Offset Path, Effect > Convert to Shape (using…

  19. Image Trace only creates a white box

    The "Image Trace" function only creates a solid white box, regardless of what image trace option I select.

    Using the new Illustrator CC 2018.
