  1. Shifting decimal

    Not sure really where this lies. And it doesn't seem to have any other affect that I am aware of, but this just started with the latest upgrade - 24.3.

    I typically select an outlined piece of text and copy it then create a new document that is a couple of inched bigger and paste it in. I do this when I am creating production files for large-format kiss cut vinyl production.

    What I have been doing is selecting the text then referring to the dimensions when I create the new file for output. However, today I noticed that when…

  2. Guides and Alignment

    While guides have been placed in artboard objects will no longer align to artboard rather they extend far beyond the current artboard.

    At the moment the only solution I've found to work is clearing the guides.

    Thanks!

  4. "Command W" quits application.

    "Command W" Keyboard short cut now quits the application rather than just closing the current window.

  5. Snap To Grid not aligns with grid

    AI version 24.2.1

    OS Catalina 10.15.5

    When Snap to Grid is selected, the points that the pen and shape tools snap to are not on the grid. They are slightly off. It is impossible to get points exactly on the grid. I've attached a file that shows where points snap to. These shapes were drawn with Snap to Grid on.

  6. New display issue with v 24.2

    Illustrator doesn't display the proper/selected file. For example, if I have file A open, and I open file B, it will either show as blank or will display file A. When I detach file B from the tab bar, file B displays correctly. When I reattach file B to the tab bar it is either blank or displays file A again, even though file B (0r C or D, etc.) is selected.

    These files all displayed and functioned properly before upgrading.

    Attached are my basic computer specs.

  7. Artboard Missing

    When I open the saved file, I find my artboards missing. The weird part is it saves my work. So every time I open the file I have to create new artboards for the layout I had done.
    Attached Adobe Files consists of 2 layouts:
    Page 1: Original Layout
    Page 2: When I re-open the file. I find all the artboards missing except for a default artboard.

    Very frustrating to recreate the artboards every time.

    Thanks
    Regards

    Mahesh Sutar

  8. WHEN CREATING NEW DOCUMENT IN 24.2, TWO ARTBOARDS ARE CREATED

    Creating new document. Two artboards appear, even though I only requested one. I also now have "video safe areas" showing in default and can't get them to not show upon setting up new document.

  9. Cmd+drag does not copy artboard

    Cmd+drag only moves selected artboard. No copy possible. No layers or content are protected. Option to copy artwork with dartboard is selected.

  10. Blank pop-up window appears after opening an .ai file

    Currently running:
    macOS Catalina v. 10.15.6
    iMac 27"
    3.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
    32 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Memory
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M 1GB Graphics card

    Everytime I open an .ai file a blank dialog box appears with nothing on it except for the close/minimize buttons on the top left. I'm able to close the box out and view my work but this happens every time I open a file. Also attached a screen shot as well as spindump of Adobe Illustrator.

  11. Window not showing

    From the Finder (MacOS X 10.15.4), I open a n illustrator Document. The app comes forward and I see a black screen. The "Window" menu tells me that the document is open BUT where? I don't see it (nope, I don't have a second monitor). Clowe the invisible window and the Window menu shows nothing open. Try again, from the finder and again, no windows look opened. Try from Illustrator, File/Open: same thing, another fail. Quit app, relaunch app by launching doc from the Finder. now the file opens as it should. Close file, try again. Back to the black…

  12. Values of artboard differes from the values on control panel in artboard mode


    1. Create big artboard 5 meter in Normal Mode

    2. Activate Increase Cavas Mode

    3. Activate artboard mode

    4. Enlarge artboard up to maximal size 57 meter with dragging handels

    5. The values in control panel are in METERS while in properties panel they are in INCH

    Expected result: The must be in the same measuraments value. In METRS as I have choose METERS

    It happens when I create artbord after first run.

  14. OS10.13.6 — Illustrator 24.1.2: Paste does NOT remember layers. Oddly, the same thing happened with another upgrade about 1-2 years ago.

  15. cannot duplicate or move artboards

    Cannot duplicate or move artboards with artwork in Illustrator 2020. Artboard will merely move with the artwork contained when hitting opt+click. Can only duplicate artboards without artwork.

  17. Can't create artboard from rectangle - Illustrator 24.2

    That's all. It says that it can't create artoboards from rotated rectangles or masks. It's a freshly created rectangle.

    This version of AI seems to be very buggy.

  20. Bleed settings are not saving with document

    Since I updated Illustrator, all of my print documents are not saving the bleed settings. Here is how to replicate the problem:

    1) I open an existing print document (.ai format) in Illustrator
    2) Go to File --> Document Setup. I have always had the bleed set to 0.125" (or 3.175 mm) for all borders (top, bottom, left, right), but now they all show zero (0).
    3) I change the bleed to 0.125" on all edges again, then click OK.
    4) I save the document, close the document, then re-open the document
    5) I go to File --> Document Setup,…
