  1. Ver 23.3, When character unit is Q, spin button does not work properly with font size of character panel and control

    Version : 24.3
    OS : Windows and macOS


    1. Set the unit character to series (Q) in the environment settings

    2. Create point text and area text

    3. Change the font size of the character panel or control with the spin button.

    In this operation, the spin button does not work properly, and the size can be changed only within a specific range based on the character size at the time of selection.
    In the property panel, it works normally.
    Even if you enter it directly, a value with decimal will be entered instead of the entered value.
    Other units are normal.

  2. ð (eth) and Ð (Eth) glyphs not recognised as the same character

    The glyphs ð (eth) and Ð (Eth) are lower and upper case of the Icelandic character eth. Illustrator has no problems working with them, except when you need to change the case, whether you do that by Type->Change Case or by changing the character attribute to All caps (or small caps for that matter).

    This is a recurring bug in Illustrator, which has been fixed at least twice before, but somehow creeps in a few versions later. I suspect some legacy code in the internal text engine, which does not reflect the relationship between the two characters.

    I’m including a…

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 24.0.2 which is available worldwide now.

    Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

  4. Font Preview Size

    In Illustrator 24.2.3,
    We are not able to change the Font Preview Size in the preference Dialogue in/under the Type Tab, and you also do not have the same feature in the Type Menu, which is the right place to set the Font Previews size default,
    we are also not able to see the Font names in the written text as a preview in the Font/Character Menu.

  5. Text cursor too thin to see

    Editing text in Adobe Illustrator CC2020 has become harder than the previous version I was on, CS5.5. I produce infographics. Text is a vital component. It's harder now than ever before because Adobe has made the text cursor bar so thin, it's barely visible.
    I'm using the latest CC2020 on the latest Catalina macOS on a 2019 27-in 5K iMac. Is it the 5K screen that is affecting the cursor? Please, Adobe, just thicken it up by a pixel or two. Currently it's so thin, it's hard to find it when editing text.

    Hey Ninian, Thanks for reporting this. Could you please go to Preferences→User Interface→UI Scaling slider. It will scale the entire Illustrator UI proportionately. Let us know if increasing the value on that slider helps. Thanks.

  6. Text height is wrong

    When you select a specific text height, it is not correct. Say for instance you select 1 inch for text height but in reality the cap height is .68 inches. We work at a sign shop and a lot of jobs require a specific text height. This is misleading when I pick 1 inch for text height and it is no where near 1 inch in height. Can you please make it where the text height corelates to the actual cap height of the text, otherwise this feature is useless.

  7. Text path vanishes when moving it with selection tools (black or white arrows)

    Since updating to version 24.1.2 from Adobe Illustrator 2019, whenever I move text objects using any of the selection arrows, the highlighted path disappears during moving and only reappears when I stop moving the text object. This is frustrating as I can't see the baseline or centre point of the text object while trying to align it to something else. This never happened before I updated Illustrator. My OS is macOS Mojave 10.14.6, Illustrator version 24.1.2.

  8. Cannot stop Auto Resize on Area Type box for large text areas

    I do not want my text box to auto-resize. The "Auto-Resize" option fails on large text box areas. Auto-Resize is turned off in my preferences. I have large text box areas filled with type and whenever I need to make an adjustment to the type box it always automatically resizes. I have tried selecting the "fixed" options and those fail too. In the video attached you can see that large areas of text will automatically resize. However, on a smaller scale the Area Type box does not.

  9. Variable Font bug: "wiggling" top of "U"


    1. Download and unzip https://www.dropbox.com/s/3b6k0izkm5ma3dy/200719-AdobeVFBug.zip?dl=1


    2. Install the font from font/DaikonVF-mini.ttf


    3. Run Illustrator 24.2.1


    4. Type "AU" and choose the Daikon VF font


    5. In the property bar, click the Variable Font button and move the weight slider between the extreme locations. Observe how the top of "U" "wiggles" (jumps up and down). This is shown in videos/DaikonVF-Illustrator-24.2.1,.mp4


    6. The same problem occurs in InDesign 15.1.1


    7. The same problem occurs in DTL OTmaster 7.9 and in FontView 2019 (an open source app built from https://github.com/googlefonts/fontview ) — both apps use older versions of the FreeType library.


    8. The problem no longer occurs in FontView 2020 (which I’ve…

  11. In large curved text the anchors shrink after use.

    In large curved text the anchors shrink after use.
    In large curved text, every time you move any anchor they become very small. If you move the text everything goes back to normal until you touch the anchors again.

  12. Fonts are not refreshed when right sided metrics are changed

    This issue happens in the context of editing the metrics of a font file multiple times (in order to view new metrics changes in realtime).

    Fonts will not always be refreshed to the latest version when overwriting a font file in the Adobe Fonts folder with a new updated version:


    • When a right sidebearing of a glyph is changed and the font regenerated, the font is NOT updated in Illustrator.


    • Whereas editing a left side bearing and regenerating the font will show the updated font with all edited metrics (both the new left & right sidebearings).


    Issue happens in all…

  13. Enable Missing Clyph Protection

    ■English
    Normally, if a font is not found, the text background is highlighted.
    Text is not highlighted when I apply appearance.

    setting -> type -> Enable Missing Clyph Protection
    This is enabled.

    ■Japanese
    通常、フォントが見つからない場合、テキストの背景が強調表示されますが
    アピアランスを適用している場合、テキストが強調表示されません。

    設定 -> テキスト -> 代替フォントを強調表示
    は有効にしています。

  14. Text on path gets selected when you marquee over empty space

    When I need to select something under the arc, like it’s shown in the GIF attached, I can use marquee and the the type object gets selected.
    Why?
    Did I click the path? No.
    Did I click the text? No.
    That’s just the 'Illustrator’s way'. Can you make an option to disable this nonsense?

  15. Align Text box with Object

    Using Windows 7 or High Sierra and Illustrator 24.2

    Align text with any object is not aligned properly. Presently it takes text box and actual height/width of text and aligns object width/height.

    I understand this is way Illustrator text work, but can changed/update so can properly aligns. Hoping to get it resolved in near coming versions.

    The alignment should work like Indesign or any vector program. Check attachment.

  19. Text in connected Area Type Text boxes becomes very unstable when scaling


    1. MacOs Mojave 10.14.6


    2. What did:


    3. Made area type square object

    4. Copied it 13 times, connected it

    5. put this structure under mask (tried also to put every object under it's own mask- same result).

    6. added shape objects

    7. Scaled everything - everything fine.

    8. selected all the text in the structure and write new one with the same font/

    9. Scaled it


    10. Usually if you select this structure of connected area type boxes in company with some shape or object and scale all this, size of text in this boxes changes accordingly.


    11. Result differs every time. Sometimes it's fine, sometimes all the letters have…

  20. Can't move text along path - vertical line handles missing

    The vertical lines that usually show up when pushing text along the path is missing. Even when using Direct Selection Tool, there are no handles to control the direction and placement of text along a path which is very frustrating.

    Macbook Pro (retina, mid 2015)
    macOS Mojave V10.14.5
    Processor 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7
    Illustrator v24.1.2
