  1. Incorrect file sizes

    Importing work into After Effects adds 6 pixels to the file size — very generous. This software keeps on giving.

  2. "Control Click to Select Objects Behind" not working

    I've contacted Adobe about this in the past. It is still not working. I have selected "Control Click to Select Objects Behind" in Preferences...and yet this does not work. Please get it to work. It's a pretty important function.

  3. Artboard names/numbers not showing up in the upper-left corner

    I just upgraded to Sierra OS and the artboard numbers/names are now missing from the upper left hand corner. This is very inconvenient for multi-page documents to be managed and printed. Im using Illustrator CC 2014 and work for a design company so we have a corporate license. Any solution for this known problem yet? As everyone gets upgraded to the new OS we will all be experiencing the same issue.

  4. Artboard name - Export for screens bug

    Latest version of CC.
    If you name an artboard with a "/" in the name - when you go to export for srceens and choose artboards - it'll report an error.

    For example an Artboard called Sign In / Registration will produce an error when trying to save the artboard using "Export for Screens".

    This is working as designed.
    Windows has some limitation that is cannot have “/” and several other characters in the name of a file. So we restricted them from being added from Export for Screens dialog( for consistency purpose on both Windows and Macintosh ). Though we can have them from artboards panel but when you will export the artboard (through older route) those will be replaced by a “-”.

    Thanks & Regards

  5. 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.

  6. Freezing when selecting multiple artboards

    Windows 10 Ver.2004 (build 19041.421)
    Illustrator Ver 24.2.1


    1. Make multiple artboards

    2. Select two artboards

    This operation freezes the operation of Illustrator.

    This problem does not occur in Ver.23.1 and 22.1.

  7. Smart Guides buggy at artboard corners

    When resizing snapping shapes or objects, Illustrator smart guides alert user that object is being snapped to corner or intersect, however it isn't actually, and it's not until you zoom right in that you realise it hasn't.

    Snap to Pixel is turned off. Smart Guides are turned on.
    There is no 'anchor' at that location other than the Artboard Edge.

  8. 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!

  11. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

    Mac OS Catalina and latest version of Adobe

  15. 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.

  16. Snap to grid doesn't work in new documents

    Snap to grid doesn't work at all in new documents. It works with no issues whatsoever in old files, but whenever I create a new one, nothing snaps to grid. I tried restarting, didn't work, and the software is up to date. Any help would be appreciated.

  17. artboard/canvas will not center; confined to top left corner

    Artboard snapping to top left corner of window- zoomed at 67%;
    snapped to right of window at 100%

    Following your post instructions ....


    1. On Windows 10 latest; Adobe Illustrator latest (on cloud) -

    2. Believe I was scrolling the canvas - may have zoomed out

    3. Expect canvas to reduce and stay centered

    4. Canvas snapped to top left and when I zoomed back to 100 % it snapped initially to top right

    Please fix (it has happened a few times) - thank you

  19. Rulers disappear at restart.

    Even If I have checked "Show/Hide Rulers Across All Documents" every time I restart Illustrator, I have to activate rulers AGAIN. Come on guys, you always need a wheel to drive a car, we always need rulers ON. Help us with this bug.
