  1. Arabic Language Options Not Showing

    After activating Indic Script support and changing my text to be Middle Eastern & South Asian Every-Line (or Single Line), I still am missing options for my character and paragraph menus, such as text direction (RTL vs LTR) and adding kashidas automatically.

  2. Cannot select type baseline with text tool when snap to grid is active.

    Is there an option I'm missing here with the newer versions of Illustrator? I have to key command the grid on and off constantly just to highlight small captions or type.

  3. The list of available fonts is not displaying correctly, typekit not visible as well

    This is what I'm getting when opening the search for fonts. I don't see any usable list of fonts nor the typekit options .

    What could be the reason for such illustrator behavior?

  4. Type on Path Brackets Not Appearing

    When using type on path tool (and then direct selection for realignment), the brackets to realign often don't appear regardless of how long you tediously go over the path trying to get the cursor to change. In the off chance we can get them to appear, often it isn't possible to drag the text fully to where it needs to be to go in place before the cursor jumps. This isn't happening in Photoshop, only Illustrator, which leads me to believe it is a bug.

  6. Font Activation Not working in Illustrator 2020

    I have repeatedly tried to activate fonts from Adobe Type with no success. It keeps showing as Activating. When I go to fonts.adobe.com it shows that the font is activated (Good Times Ultra Light) in the browser but in Illustrator it never shows the cloud with the checkmark. I have rebooted but still the same issue.

  7. Illustrator PDF created with 24.3 sets letter I to overprint

    We process PDF files daily and have noticed that files saved as PDF from Illustrator 24.3 will set overprint on for the letter I

    There are several different examples if you cannot reproduce.

  8. Can't see the fint size in the type panel

    Hi, I work in publishing so I need to see the font size in the top bar but all I can see in illustrator 2020 is the stroke size when I choose the T tool. When I watch tutorials I can see they have the type bar across the top but all I have is the character window which is very cumbersome when I need to constantly change the font size. Can you tell me how I can see that type bar? Is it something simple because I just can't figure out how?

  9. Issues

    My text is not showing up from even previous projects. Plus if I copy text from other programs, Illustrator just spools and quits.

  10. full screen

    When clicking on the full-screen button (the big green plus) it should maximise the window on its own virtual desktop.

    Currently on MacOS it uses the non-standard behaviour of maximising itself on the home desktop and putting itself to the front.

    This causes problems because uses think it is on its own virtual desktop and so keep swiping to try and find the home desktop, or they worry that they cannot see another of their other windows or apps on the home desktop.

  11. text automatically changed to unreadable when using some cloud fonts

    Since version 2020, some time text automatically changed to unreadable when using some cloud fonts (as I only found this issue with cloud font for now)
    Need to restart program and the problem gone for a while, then came back!

    I use latest Mac OS and latest Adobe creative cloud version.

  12. Fonts dropdown is not showing any fonts

    My font dropdown is no longer displaying any fonts, I updated to the most recent version. While researching it looked like this was an issue a few years ago...did this issue come back again or is mine broken?

  13. Arabic / Hindi Diacritical Marks Editing Problem/Bug in Illustrator

    HINDI / ARABIC SPEAKERS PLEASE HELP! Theres a huge problem or bug in illustrator i think...

  20. Myriad Pro Condensed text disappears

    I opened up an Illustrator file that I update yearly. The text is all in Myriad Pro, in a variety of styles. The section of text that was in Myriad Pro Condensed completely disappeared. The text line was still there, but when I typed nothing appeared. Changed the style to any other style (regular, bold, bold condensed and I can type it in, but if I change it back to condensed it disappears again.
