  3. "File --> New" or "Ctrl+N" fails to create new file in Illustrator 22.0.1 (64-bit)

    After opening Illustrator, I'm only able to open existing files. Trying to create a new file by clicking "File --> New" in the menu, or clicking "Ctrl+N" results in a brief pause, but no new artboard or new file appears.

  4. Changing the default unit setting revert back to point to inch.

    I can't change the default units. When I change the unit in General from inc to Point. Illustrator reverts it back to the inc again when I restart the illustrator. This is super annoying. Please don't need to upgrade the feature of illustrator just fix the existing ones and give us a bug-free application.

  5. No align on Artboart option for Forms

    No align on Artboart option for Forms.
    In the new properties Panel if you select some custom form you get the alignment stuff, including the option to switch between "align on artboard and align on selection".
    If you select an Standard Form e.g. a circle you get no option alignment tools in the properties panel and you also have no option in the alignment window to select if you want to align on artboard or selection.

    The properties Panel should have the possibility to align all elements, forms and so on.
    Also as a backup you should include the possibility…

  6. Can only open 1 Ai file at a time

    Can only open one Ai file at a time. If current Ai file open is open in Illustrator and you try to open another file concurrently through all means, it will not open. The only way around this is to open each file in a different version of Illustrator, or completely close Ai to open the new file.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. bug: Artboard name doesn't stick when pasted in directly in the artboard list

    The artboard name does not always stick when entering it in the following manner:
    - in the artboards panel create a new artboard via the [+] icon
    - double-click the title to be able to edit the name
    - paste in the name
    - hit enter

    The name shows in the panel, but when clicking the artboard icon at the right of the name the artboard settings panel opens with the old name still showing. If not editing the name here also the name will revert back to the old name after opening and closing another file.

    The video shows…

  16. SVG arc path without whitespace standard syntax broken

    When an arc is described using a missing whitespace, which is perfectly valid SVG syntax, it will not be rendered correctly in Illustrator. This was discovered with SVG files compressed by SVGO 1.3+ and later which has the arc path optimisation by default.

    This syntax should work as it is a standard part of the SVG specification and is rendered correctly by all major web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari.

    In the attached example an arc is written as:

    a.65.65 0 011.109-.459

    The string 011.109 contains 3 values:

    0
    1 (a boolean is required here, it cannot be 11.109) …

  17. Duplicating an Artboard with art on it and then Undoing it, causes crash

    if you drag and artboard with art on it while holding option to duplicate, it duplicates fine, but if you Undo, the duplicated artboard remains and you can't delete. sometimes if you try and select the artboard illustrator will crash. the only way to update is to reopen the affected file.

  18. Artboard > Fit to Artwork Bounds with clipping mask and raster effects

    Resizing an artboard with Artboard Options -> Preset -> Fit to Artwork Bounds doesn't honor clipping masks or raster effects. The new artboard size includes artwork hidden by clipping mask, and excludes raster effects such as drop shadows.

  20. 'Preview' instantly applies effect or operation

    If I go to any dialogue box that has a 'preview' option, the effect is applied as soon as the box is checked. If I then click 'cancel' the effect is still applied. Altering the parameters applies the new value to the previously applied value.

    For example, I draw and box and open the Scale options. With 'preview' selected, I change the value from 100% to 200% and then to 150%. The box is scaled to 350% in total.

    Also, the Recolour Artwork box will only allow me to change a colour once. Again, applying the change instantly even if…
