  1. ALIGN not working correctly in Illustrator 23.0.3

    Ever since the latest update for Illustrator (23.0.3) Align does not work correctly. I've got 3 items selected; I click on the Align tab; use the "Align to" dropdown box and select "Align to Selection"; then click the "Horizontal Distribute Space" icon - but it distributes it across the page instead of just the THREE ITEMS I've selected.
    I've noticed other align issues over the last week or so but cannot give details like I did above because today I stopped my work so I can come out here an list my problem.
    There are so many bugs and issue…

  3. If I have an illustrator file open, and then open a second, I can't view the 2nd file even if it's the one selected

    I am having a consistent issue that any time I open a second file in illustrator, the view is always on the first file, even if I have the 2nd file selected. I have not found a way to resolve this so I can't copy and paste between files!

  4. 23.0.3 keyboard shortcuts stop working

    after roughly 15 minutes of designing, my illustrator keyboard shortcuts no long work. When I select a shortcut (eg command z, or command s), I simply get a system error sound, but no action. This is true for ALL shortcuts

    i am then forced to use the menu items, or restart illustrator to keep working normally.

  6. AI smartobject doesn't open from Photoshop

    This is an old bug THAT IS BACK!!! Double clicking an AI smart object in photoshop opens Illuistrator but it doesn't open the object. You have to close Illustrator completely and do it over again until it works.

  7. Illustrator problem

    This is not ethical. I know that. But I want to publish this video. Just explain to me why these problems are caused. I've never seen any logical explanations until this time. And that makes me sad.
    Illustrator is very clumsy, slow, has bad performance, interface bad and exhausting.
    Example, I can't easily apply effects on an object or text. Restricts me with everything. These are very simple and the features that should be. I'm sure a lot of people think that.

    Affinity is small size, more practical and user-friendly, faster and cheaper.
    Many of your competitors come up with…

  9. No display of document when opened in ADOBE.

    Document does not display when I scan to computer and then open it. However, when I've attached to an email, I can open and view it. I have a Lenovo, so its not just a MAC issue

  12. Eyedropper, bounding box, shortcuts don't work, Text tool messed up...

    Illustrator CC 23.0.2 - Mac Mojave

    1) The eyedropper tool is pretty much useless, because it doesn'tw ork on groups. I need to ungroup everything or make a compound path. This is very annoying.
    2) the bounding box sometimes disappears and I cannot bringt it back with the usual shortcut, i have to do it manually, sometimes even that doesn't work and I have to restart Illustrator. Also, the bounding box cannot be reset on objects like a perfect square when it's rotated 45 degrees. That means I cannot scale it properly. And also the bounding box always gets stuck…

  13. copy and paste only works sporadically with Wacom tablet. All AI versions up to CC 23.0.2

    From at least version CS6 to CC 23.0.2 copy/paste when using a Wacom tablet only functions some of the time and I can't figure out a pattern to the behaviour. Using a mouse on the same system had no such problems. This is either using shortcut keys or the Edit menu commands. Problem on Win 7 Pro, although I've heard reports of it occurring on other O/S. This may be a partner to the "sticky rotate centre" issue reported elsewhere and which also occurs on my system.

  14. Artboard Navigation control at bottom of screen v 23.0.2 (newest update)

    Artboard Navigation control at bottom of screen shows up in the middle of the the screen when I use my larger screen. When I drag the window to my small screen and then back to the large screen, the artboard navigation control is back at the bottom. If I open a new file, the navigation control is back in the middle of the screen. This is version 23.0.2 (dowloaded and installed 3/6/19)

  15. Copy & Paste not always working - randomly

    Hi all,

    This is a very frustrating bug - around 50% of the times copy & paste won't work. I select an object, press ctrl+C, and then pressing ctrl+V produces nothing as if the clipboard is empty.

    I cannot reproduce it as it seems random, sometimes it will copy & paste, sometimes it won't.
    This makes working with Illustrator extremely hard.

    Might be worth mentioning that copy-pasting from Illustrator into Photoshop resembles the same buggy behavior - it will randomly work or not.

    Please advise on how to resolve this.

    Cheers

  17. Paste to Center [not working]

    Illustrator 23.0.2 does not paste into the center of the art board, despite having already centered the art board in the window.

  18. Illustrator cc2019(v23.0)

    環境設定でテキストオブジェクトの選択範囲をパスに制限にチェックを入れると、選択範囲がシビアすぎて全く選択できません。
    これまでのバージョンはパスの近くをクリックすると選択できました。
    選択できる範囲をこれまでのように戻してください。

  19. start up screen flashing black and white

    when i open adobe illustrator the screen flashes black and white continuously and the menus close instantly when i click on them. i can open a new document by pressing ctrl n but cannot click on any of the menus.
    this only happens when i am signed in, which i need. i can sign out by quickly clicking the sign out button in the help menu before it closes again, but this is not ideal.
    this only happens in illustrator CC 2015, not photoshop.

  20. paste in place

    So I'm having problems with the Paste in Place command, sometimes it works great when I Copy or Cut something and paste it on other artboards but most of the times it is not working properly, either what I copied o cut get outside the drawing area or it goes to a random place, and at first I thought I wasn't selecting the artboard but even with the artboard selected it falls anywhere. I'm running Illustrator CC 2019, on windows 10.
