  5. Close, Save and Quit File Menu options are invisible

    After upgrading Illustrator to version 23.0 (Windows 7 Pro), the Close, Save and Quit options under the File Menu are invisible. This is constant.

    Please accept my sincere apology for the inconvenience. It can be issue with Graphic card drivers. Please goto this link for more info:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/kb/illustrator-gpu-performance-driver-update.html

    If this doesn’t resolve the issue, please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . 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.

  6. Guides not snappable when locked or on a locked layer

    For some reason, after updating to CC 2019 from CC 2018 today, I noticed that the smart guides won't snap to guides when you hover over them (i.e. with the pen tool) if guides are locked (which is usually the case for me since it's annoying having them unlocked and accidentally selecting them all the time) or on a locked layer. They were always recognized by the smart guides regardless of being locked or not as far as I remember in every past version of Ai. Any way to fix this back to how it was? It's super annoying to…

  7. Spell Check doesn't understand what "Uncapitalized Start of Sentence" means.

    While running spell check, Illustrator doesn't seem to understand that a comma is not the end of a sentence, or that the word following the comma is the start of a new sentence. See attached screen shots.

    (running the version of Illustrator on Mac running OS 10.13.6)

  8. Right click on layers + Layer group shortcut don't work

    Both me and my colleagues have that Illustrator is NON-RESPONSIVE every few days when it comes to shortcut keys and other UI related controls, like right clicking layers. Try and group a few layers when you can't use shortcuts or right click 'm.

    Today I've spent the better part of the day trying to fix this, since it makes work near impossible.

    I've restarted app, restarted PC, restarted app without prefs, updated app, restarted app and PC again, deleted prefs file (rename to OLD) and what not.

    I expected it wouldn't last the entire day.
    Well ... I expected this…

  9. Stop showing the "billing error" screen on launch

    Every time I launch Adobe I get a "billing error" screen that tells me to "please update [my] billing information to avoid losing access to Illustrator CC."

    My account is paid for until June 22. That's 247 days from now. I shouldn't be harassed like this until MAYBE the last couple weeks of my membership.

    Please fix this.

  10. The position of the right-click menu doesn't match the 4K screen (200% scale)

    Illustrator version: 22.1 (64-bit)

    When right click in the document, the position where the menu appears is incorrect.
    If the mouse cursor is closer to the top-left corner of the screen, the menu position is closer to the cursor.
    If the mouse cursor is farther from the top-left corner of the screen, the offset between the cursor and the menu position and is greater.

    Please see my screen record for details: https://youtu.be/KY9ySuCCk

  11. Some shortcuts not working in 22.1

    For example Transform each Ctrl+Shift+Alt+D not working at all.
    CC2017 seems to be still better option than CC2018, many bugs.

    Illustrator version 22 is not supported on macOS 10.14 (Mojave).
    Please upgrade to version 23 to resolve the issue.

  13. Missing functionality when using external displays

    When using multiple external displays, Illustrator New Document screen and Helpful Hints popups not displaying properly resulting in inability to see and select options necessary to create a new document or see all of the information in the popups and close the popups.

    I've called support twice without a resolution. Attempts to resolve have included updating both primary and secondary display drivers.

    Work around for creating new is to change Preferences to "Use legacy 'File New' interface", but this doesn't resolve the Helpful Hints popups which can't be closed as a result of this bug.

    My specific system configuration file…

  14. Cannot view 150% zoom level


    1. Illustrator CC 20.1 (64-bit); Windows 10-64

    2. Trying to zoom to 150% by selecting the preset option from the zoom drop-down menu, or using Ctrl++

    3. Expected result: document is shown at 150% zoom (actual size due to DPI scaling issues)

    4. Actual result: zoom preset goes to 200% and document is shown at 200%. This only happens with this document and not others; it contains both vector and raster data. For some reason I can zoom at every other preset except 150% (true actual size)

  15. Menus are too large

    This is only an Illustrator problem where the drop down menus and dialog pop ups are way too large compared to the rest of the user interface. I've tried every solution. Running this on Windows 10 Pro on a 2K screen.

  16. Illustrator uses UI scaling for menus from main display in dual display setup

    Windows 10, version 1803
    Illustrator CC (22.1)

    I have a dual display setup. Display 1 is 109ppi (27", 2560x1440) set to 100% UI scale in Windows settings. Display 2 is 282ppi (15.6", 3840x2160) set to 225% UI scale in Windows settings.

    Illustrator is set to 'scale to higher supported scale factor'

    If Illustrator is placed on display 2, with display 1 set as the 'main' or primary display in windows settings, Most UI items within Illustrator display as expected but menus and some other items become unreadable, because Illustrator appears to take its UI scaling setting from the display set…

  18. Selecting options in panel dropdown menus always activates the item below the menu

    This bug has been affecting me for many months through multiple updates. It happens consistently. When I click an item in a dropdown menu within a tool panel, no matter how careful I am I end up activating whatever option is BELOW the menu at that location.

    EXAMPL (see attached video): In the gradient panel I select the Location option, which opens a dropdown menu with 10 options (0% to 100%). When the Location menu opens, it hangs down over the tool panel below. In this case, Swatches. I select 80%: the physical location of that option in the menu…
