  1. Alignement après dessins à la plume

    Tout les versions d'Illustrator que j'ai eu l'occasion de tester ont le même souci, y compris Illustrator 2021.
    Lorsque l'on crée un tracé à la plume, et que l'on souhaite ensuite l'aligner avec un autre objet clé du dessin, l'ensemble des points se déplace au même endroit alors que normalement deux objets devraient s'aligner normalement...

  2. Simplify tool (24.2.3) still doesn't work as expected

    According to the answer from Adobe in this post ( https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/38726365-please-revise-the-new-tool-to-simplify-paths-once ) the new simplify tool is supposed to be updated and work better but it is unfortunately still unusable for us who simplify lines which originates from GIS softwares etc.

    I can't understand how the new tool could simplify so strange and unusable.

    Also as a bonus, when having more complex files, Illustrator 24 freezes when trying to simplify a line. Illustrator 2019 with old tool doesn't.

    See attached image.

  4. Trying to apply an opacity mask on an object with a gradient makes it dissapear

    I have an object with a points gradient and I'm trying to clip that with some text(which has been converted to a shape). Although it seems to work initially, after switching back form mask to the object layer, the object dissapears completely.

  5. Smart Guides Not Working - Mac

    Illustrator 24.3, Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7

    Smart guides have stopped working.
    I.e Smart Guides do not appear when drawing using the Line segment tool, or rectangle tool for example.
    Smart Guides do not appear when aligning object with other objects.

    I'm running the same release (24.3) on a PC, Win10 64-bit, and do not have the same problem on that machine.

    Smart Guides are enabled - were have they gone?!

  6. Impossible to create a very simple compound object of a shape and a word of multiple characters

    It's been an ongoing issue for me for years. Until recently I used to be able to work around it by breaking the word into individual characters and substrating them from the shape one by one but now even this annoying method stopped working. I have literally no idea how to do this very simple thing any more!

  7. Bug when Alt/Option-dragging multiple points with Direct Select

    In Illustrator version 24.3, I'm getting a bug with Alt/Option-dragging multiple points using the Direct Selection tool. See screen recording attached.

    Opt+dragging one point gives expected results.

    Opt+dragging 2 or more points copies the entire object.

  10. Distribute Spacing is missing from the control bar when multiple objects are selected.

    Distribute by centers is in the control bar when more than one object is selected, but distribute by spacing is missing.

  11. In accurate shapes for extremely small complex shapes

    Windows 10 V24.3
    Open file (new or existing), Specs 10000x5000 px.
    Zoom in to 64000%.
    Select Pencil Tool. Double click settings (ensure color fill).
    No stroke. Any color fill.
    Draw complex, but small shape.
    Problem: Shape is not held. Not enough anchors are added to keep original draw accurate. Add anchor should not be needed for quick workflow.

    In my example. Drawing small lakes on a large world map. This changes the shape of my lakes, or I must make them bigger, but that will change the accuracy of my map.

    This bug seems sporadic as sometimes I can create…

  12. Inaccuracies with pathfinder and shape builder tool

    I'm using v24.3, the most recent Illustrator version. When zooming in on a shape, the selection outline does not appear to correspond to the actual fill area of the shape. When doing any cutting or merging with the pathfinder or shape builder tool, this discrepancy starts to create inaccurate results, as the tools seem to favor the selection outline as a guide when cutting.
    As an example, I have a circular background. I want to "mask" a square onto it, so one of the corners of the square is outside of the circle. This corner I intend to cut off…

  13. artboards disappear

    Mac OSX 10.13.6 Illustrator 24.0 Creative Cloud
    Opened a file
    strokes with arrowheads to be strokes and artboards that were present when the file was closed to still be there.
    Strokes were dropped to shapes and grouped and the artboards were gone.

    I've seen this before and I can't figure out why it's happening. I have a file that I just worked in a few days ago and now when I open it, all the strokes I had with arrowheads are broken down into a shape for the line and a shape for each arrowhead and then the whole thing…

  14. Anchor points are invisible on certain paths

    Illustrator 22.1 on Mac OS 10.13.6.

    The anchor points are generally visible for all paths, except for two of them (unless I isolate each path).

    I don't understand why. They are all single shapes, not groups. They seem to have exactly the same properties too.

  17. BUG - perspective grid - ground plane widgets disappear

    The Left and Right ground level widgets DISAPPEAR when the vanishing points are adjusted moderately far apart. There seems to be no way to make them visible again, which makes it hard to move the entire perspective grid to another location.

  18. BUG - perspective grid planes disappear permanently

    If the grid cell size is adjusted -- while some planes are turned off (with temporary SHIFT-hide function) -- the hidden planes cannot be made to reappear.


    1. Select Left plane. Hover grid tool over an intersection in Left plane.


    2. Press SHIFT. The right and ground planes disappear.


    3. Adjust cell size with diamond widget.


    4. Now try to make right plane or ground plane visible again -- gone forever.


    This bug seriously interferes with using the Perspective Grid tools.
