  1. Font scrolling

    When scrolling through fonts and selecting, it starts over from the beginning instead of where I left off, causing frustration and time.

  2. Fonts you use disappearing

    First, I have done everything the Adobe support team told me and it didn't fix the problem. I have also reset Illustrator multiple times and re-install it and it didn't fix the problem. I also have no control an any Issues that I'm having so I can't tell you what I do that causes the problem it happens randomly like all Issues that I have shared and haven't shared yet.

    I have attached a screenshot of the Issue that makes it clear whats happen with random fonts (typekit included).

  3. Paragraph styles not properly justifying

    I'm using the latest updated version of CC on mac High Sierra 10.13.6

    When I just use the justify option in the paragraph window, the type will justify properly, but when I've tried to create a paragraph style, the type hangs outside of the text box, no matter what I do.

    Is there something I'm doing wrong, or is this a bug issue? And if so, any workarounds? I'm working on a file that needs a lot of type, and Illustrator is preferred over InDesign (which I've never had a problem with).

    Thanks.

  4. Type resizing issue in Illustrator CC 2019 v23.0.1

    If I try to change the point size of a typeface on type that is indeed selected (any typeface - not specific to any one in particular), while I can select or type in a specific size in the type "window" (cmd T to open, or I just open it from my docked windows) it has no effect on the actual size. I can change the size using the panel across the top (see attached screen cap) just fine.

    This just started happening today. I've done no updates related to my OS (latest version for Mac of Mojave) or Illustrator.

  6. text edit

    Editing text in Illustrator 2019 is so difficult -- there's a heavy lag, and it is incredibly frustrating. This is size 12 font, small file -- there is no reason why editing this text should be lagging, and I've noticed others having the same problem. Please fix this ASAP!

  7. Leading bug (Character panel)

    There seems to be a leading bug in the latest version. The leading automatically created is usually too spaced vertically, or creating a text area creates pseudo-Latin lines of text that are on top of each other.

  8. typing in Hebrew

    Whenever I try typing in Hebrew the letters go in the wrong direction, and I have no option in the paragraph pannel to change it as I know there is supposed to be. What should I do?

  9. Using scale tool on justified text results in changing line breaks


    1. Illustrator CC 22.0.0 on Windows 10 x64 Pro


    2. Have a column of Area Text, justified, with carefully defined line breaks so that words are hyphenated at particular places, or not hypenated at all.


    3. When using either the scale tool (shift+click to scale proportionally) or the transform tool, all of the content should scale proportionally and the line breaks should not be changed.


    4. The resulting rescaled text column has very slight changes to the line breaks. While shift+dragging, the text looks correct (just scaled proportionally, without any reflow or stretching), but when releasing the mouse, there is suddenly some text reflow…

  12. text block cursor not indicating actual cursor location

    TEXT BLOCK CURSOR NOT INDICATING ACTUAL CURSOR LOCATION
    This has happened a few times to me, but is not consistent.

    When editing text in a type block I use the pointer to hi light the area where changes are required but the changes occur at a different point in the text.
    I have attached an image to clarify this - the black editing block is hi lighting the additional space I intend to delete but the actual character deleted is a few characters away (in this case the letter 'f' which shows with a blue edit line in this image…

  13. Making a button - Changing stroke on text to shape adds extra point [BUG]


    1. Illustrator CC 2018

    2. I was trying to make a scalable button with the text tool:

    Used text tool to write "Label", then in the appearance panel I added a stroke under Characters and then turned it into a rounded rectangle and adjusted the size to the desired shape. This did what I want, except it added an extra point it seems that causes an artifact in the shape. Is there any way you could fix this to close the shape properly/ also be able to adjust the stroke alignment for this.


    1. Expected a nice smooth pill shaped button

    2. The shape…

  14. Random text passages appearing after creating a text box


    1. Adobe Illustrator off of Adobe CC

    2. Selected the Text Tool, drew a text box, random text passage appeared immediately with no reason.

    3. I expected just a text box to appear

    4. I received a passage of Latin with no clue as to how that could happen

    5. I've attached a snapshot

    Please help as I don't fully know if this is a bug or a feature that I have to edit.

  15. Missing Font On Documents That Were Just Open

    I have been having issues with fonts dropping out of coworkers documents since I updated to CC2018 but this is the first time I have reopened one of my own files and had font claim to be missing that I was just using.

    I had assumed previously that my coworkers had just had a different named version of the fonts but today I saved and closed one of my own files to restart my pc because AI was running slowly (separate issue, i know) but when i reopened my file 10 minutes later I have 6 fonts missing.

    When I…

  17. zoom

    When snap to grid is on, it will only create new text. It won't select existing text for editing - probably because it isn't on the grid. This never used to happen before the latest update.

  18. character panel

    Please allow this shortcut to work again - No longer able to drag mouse left or right over the text tools (font size, leading, tracking, etc.) to quickly adjust the value lower or higher. This is helpful when designing quickly vs. typing in the exact value or using the arrows to increase/decrease.

    This is still possible in the Photoshop update - however, it is buggy and does not work correctly anymore.

    Thanks!

  19. delay of text cursor


    1. Illustrator 22.0.0 (64-bit).

    2. There is a delay in the text cursor showing up when it's moved with arrows or a text path is newly clicked, requiring one to wait for it before being able to continue working.

    3. The text cursor should be immediately visible.

    4. There is a delay instead of a couple seconds. (That's a long time when making many moves in a row.)

    I am closing the ticket due to lack of response.

  20. Fonts Slow EVERYTHING Down

    Fonts are the slowest feature in programs from MS Office to Adobe. This problem just caused me to lose work because AI shut down while trying to figure out how to manage a standard font with which I was working. Thanks for nothing AI and your simpleton font generators. You're fired.
