  1. Pinch to Zoom not working

    Seems this issue has been beaten to death with no resolution...Pinch to zoom and two finger panning does not work for me. I am using a Dell XPS 15" 9570 with everything updated. Macbook does this feature flawlessly however not on windows. I know I am not the only one. PLEASE fix this issue.

  2. Save dialog box not showing on 24.1

    At Saving a document for a first time, it only appear the window box with nothing on it. Until I change of Desktop, everything appear in the dialog box, then I can go back to the Illustrator desktop, put a name to the file and save without more issues. I've downgraded to previous release (24.0.3) and everything works fine again.
    I use Mac 10.15.3, Multiple Desktops (One for Photoshop, one for InDesign, one for Illustrator), iMac 5K 24 GB RAM - 2 GB VRAM. The Illustrator version failing: 24.1

  3. Selections are automatically deselected after a few seconds

    Lately, Illustrator will deselect anything I select with either the selection or direct selection tool (doesn't matter which one) and it makes for a very frustrating experience. Anyone have an idea to fix?

    I am running Dell (windows) latest AI version
    Core i9 2.9 ghz
    32GB RAM
    Windows 10 Enterprise ("1903)
    have a eGPU hooked up external 4k monitor with Radeon card.

  4. Artboard Size in Properties Panel Arrow Key Enlarge/Reduce Increments Incorrect After 24.1.1 Update

    As of the latest patch (24.1.1), when using the up and down arrow keys to change the size of an artboard in the Properties panel, the increments are now full inches instead of 0.1 inch increments as they were in the previous version (24.1). Is there a way to revert this behavior back? This glitch also occurred a few years ago and was fixed in a subsequent update, so I'm hopeful it can be fixed again.

    On a related note, holding control (on Windows) and using the up and down arrow keys adjust the size by 0.6 inches which I…

  5. Cannot maximize, minimize, resize, or close the program because the top bar is MISSING

    "Application Frame" doesn't exist in the Window drop down and that is the ONLY advice you give to fix this bug. I can't even use the program until this issue is fixed so it's useless paying for CC

  6. Home page + document bug

    [BUG] When I return to the "Home" window, the GUI shows in a smaller area on the screen. If I proceed to open any document or create a new one, the window is inoperable and no UI shows up. I then have to restart AI to restore functionality.

  8. Shapes are not drawn at the same postions like ruler lines on some zoom levels

    When placing a shape, a retancle for example and snap one side to a ruler, shape side position relative to the ruler is different on different zoom levels.

    Sometimes it is exactly on the same position, like always expected. Sometimes its overflowing the ruler, sometimes its to far away.

    Very annoying. It feels like working Corel Draw in the 90th. :-(

  9. My flyout menus in AI no longer work unless I am holding down the control key

    My flyout menus in AI no longer work by clicking them, unless I am holding down the control key. This started while I was working in Illustrator and has persisted, in spite of reloading AI and restarting CC and my computer.

  13. BRING BACK FUNCTIONALITY OF ACTIONS

    As we all know all too well, the "engineering team" adds to and removes features from AI, apparently completely without considering its effective use or convenience.

    Their latest trick: many operations won't record automatically anymore in Actions going from v23 to v24. Please bring that back.

    Functions not recorded anymore so far:

    – Create text frame
    – Cmd/ctrl-0 Fit Artboard in Window
    – Save As (including location, file type eg PDF and its settings)
    – Close

    I you find more please add them to the list.

    I'm getting so tired of this ignorant behaviour!

  15. Scrollbars missing - Windows 10 - build 23.1 (64 bit)

    The scrollbars are missing when I open a file with multiple artboards. I see the zoom percent and artboard navigation inputs but they are floating almost 150px above where they should be. I've attached a screenshot of what I'm seeing.
    This issue only goes away for the current session when I fiddle with the UI settings, but comes back when I next start Illustrator.

  16. ⌘ + = Zooming Won't Work After Recent Update

    Since the most recent update 24.0.3 a couple days ago, the keyboard command to zoom in ⌘ + =, no longer works on MacBook Pro 2017 running Catalina 10.15.3 (both internal keyboard and bluetooth). Seems to be an Adobe issue as colleagues in my office are also experiencing the same problem which requires us to now use the Zoom tool. Note: the ⌘ + - combo to zoom out still functions for some reason.

  17. escape button missing text box

    The escape button does not work (is not there at all) on the touch bar on 24.0.3. When you are in tool-free mode, you cannot escape out of a text box any longer because the esc button is missing completely now.
