  1. Layers are messed up, live text broken up

    File was last edited on Dec 23, 2019 - saved in illustrator 2020 .ai and .pdf formats. There were grouped layers, and live text layers.

    When I opened it today, my layer groups are all gone, and my live text has been broken up into separate layers (some mid-word).

  2. Space After Paragraph is Missing

    I'm using Illustrator 2020, v24.0.1 on a MacBook Pro using OS Mojave v10.14.6

    Not sure where it went, but in the Paragraph tool, the "Space After Paragraph" feature is simply gone. I've rebooted the program and its still missing. Need this basic standard feature back ASAP.

  3. Illustrator's fonts are not displaying

    When I type something, the character panel does not show any fonts as an option. I have tried the dropdown menu to no avail. I found a work around a couple days ago but cannot remember what it was!

  4. Increase font shortcut: Command + Shift + . no longer works

    Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6, 3.2 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4, Radeon Pro 560X 4 GB

    Illustrator 23.1.1

    Increase font shortcut: Command + Shift + . no longer works.

    Decrease font shortcut DOES still work. Super annoying.

    EDIT: I just realised if you press the decimal point on the number pad it works. The wrong "." seems to have been assigned the shortcut.

  6. Unable to skew individual words/letters in type

    In previous versions of illustrator, you were able to skew individual words/letters from the character menu. That option has been replaced by an option to rotate.

    Distorting highlighted text distorts the whole box of type. The font I'm working with does not have and italics and I need this option to italicize specific words.

    I am using 23.0.6 on a mac with OS Mojave 10.14.6.

    I'm attaching screenshots of this feature in InDesign so you can see what this used to look like in illustrator, as well as a screenshot of the new character panel in illustrator where it's missing.…

  8. Type objects duplicated on top and converted to outlines

    Sometimes when opening up a file, type objects are copied and placed exactly above the original type object, and converted to outlines. There are sometimes anywhere from 1 to 3 duplicated objects. It usually affects every type object in the document. The same issue has been affecting my colleagues' computers, and we often work off of the same documents and share them with each other.

    We all have 15" MacBook Pros, using either Illustrator version 2018 or 2019, on Mojave.

  9. Character/paragraph style incompleteness


    1. Creation of Character/paragraph style is not undoable.
      You can undo any operation before and after but creation of Character/paragraph style does not get into "undo" list. You have to delete it manually from styles list.


    2. Select text\paragraph, make Character/paragraph style. Selected text/paragraph is not set instantly to this newly created style but it should.

  10. Installed Fonts Not Being Updated

    I've tried the forums but this issue is still not solved & I've not been able to find a solution anywhere. Allow me to clarify.

    Thi issueeffects both the font menus and fonts in the entire document & actually across unlimited documents after unlimited numbers of app restarts and system restarts. I assume this can be fixed because I have proper behavior on one machine & improper behavior on another.

    I build fonts. I use Illustrator as one of many apps in which I test the fonts as part of my workflow. The problem I am having is that fonts…

  11. Copying text inside a symbol group copies all text in that symbol to the clipboard

    When I copy selected text inside a symbol it copies ALL the text in that symbol. It doesn't matter if the text is in the same instance or in a completely different one. If it is text and inside the symbol it will get copied. When I then paste the text that I think I copied it pastes everything.

  12. "Clear Overrides" in Paragraph Styles menu is needlessly picky

    I can clear overrides only if the selected text is all in a single paragraph style. If I select multiple lines in different styles (which happens all the time in lists of text, calendar items, etc), the thing is always dimmed out.

    This makes it needlessly tedious to get all the text back into a known set of styles, so that the styles themselves can be redefined and the text will update accordingly. (Example: taking formatted text to a new and differently-sized layout.)

  13. Acumin Font ampersands not printing or appearing in PDFs correctly.

    Ampersands in Adobe's Acumin font are not printing correctly. Sections are being "cut out". When you outline the font, it doesn't appear to be making a compound shape

  15. Variable Font Rendering Distorts Master

    I'm getting some weird things happening with a 4-axis font I'm working on.

    Illustrator seems to mangle the outlines for some of the masters. I realize this font is doing some weird stuff, but hoping for some clarification if it's a bug in Illustrator or my font. It appears correctly on the web though, on Axis Praxis(Chrome).

    I'm attaching the ttf. It only has an 'H' glyph present. If it's helpful, there's more information about the typeface and intentions at the link below. This issue is related to an upcoming version which isn't available yet. https://www.futurefonts.xyz/scribble-tone/whoa

  16. Issues changing type character properties

    I have been having issues for a few weeks with illustrator not showing correct font or size. It used to be sporadic, but now it is happening the majority of the time! I even updated my Illustrator CC version & that didn't help.

    For example, I will click on some text that is Gotham 15 pt, but the character panel says it is Myriad 12 pt. When I try changing the font or the font size, nothing happens.

    It is getting to the point where I am not able to edit text size or font in my own files. Help!

  17. Extreme performance issues (AKA the dreaded color wheel) when trying to type in AI 23.0.2.

    I get the color wheel with anything text-related. From basic typing to simply deleting a letter or space. Haven't found any way around the issue. I design a ton of infographics and this is seriously adding unnecessary time to my projects.

    Here's my system info

  18. Create Outline shortcut is not working

    I'm not sure when this started happening but CTRL + SHIFT + O isn't working as a command for create outlines.

    Notes:

    All other key commands work fine

    My O key isn't broken

    The command is still correct in preferences

    Doing "Create Outlines" from the menu works just fine.

    I've tried reselecting, restarting, multiple documents. It's simply not working, It's very weird.. anyone?

  20. Type on Path Issue

    After I apply type on a path (circle) the circle isn't a circle anymore.

    Circle without type on a path: Same height, Same width.
    Circle with type on a path: Different height, Different width.

    I never had that issue before, after i apply text on a path (circle) the circle has still the same height & width values, why not now?

    Please update adobe illustrator in January 2019
