  1. Artboard Rename Doesn't Work

    When you rename the artboard, especially several at one time, the name will go back to the old one, even if you hit enter and save it. I usually notice this after I've exported artboards as PNGs and I get names with "copy" still in it or as the default artboard names.

  2. Alignement of neighboring objects

    Hi, when I used to move my objects on artboard, there used to be lanes and alignments automatically showing me when two objects on the artboard are in alignment with a green line. However, I can't see that feature anymore, it just happened since yesterday. very frustrating. Is this a bug, or is this due to some settings issue?

  7. V24.3 issue with artboard numbering + export

    In version 24.3 there is an issue with duplicate artboard numbers when creating a copy of an existing artboard (ie: it will skip from 3 to 5, and repeat 5 twice) and on export will only export one of the duplicate artboards. So, I had a file with 8 artboards, but two of the numbers were being doubled when I created them as copies so it only exported 6 of the 8. I wasn't able to find a work-around to export these duplicated artboards so I ended up downgrading to V 24.2.3 and it fixed the issue.

  8. Select all artboards

    With the Artboard tool selected, choosing Select > All selects not only the artboards, but all of the artwork—even artwork outside of the artboards.

  9. Preferences > Units : change not updated when re-launching Illustrator

    Preferences > Units : change from millimetres to pixels is not updated when re-launching Illustrator
    This occurs more precisely with the 'General' item.

  10. A giant artboard shows up behind the 1920x1080 every time I create a new document using the HDV/HDTV option

    Every time I create a HDV/HDTV or FILM & VIDEO new document, a giant artboad sizing 14400 x 14400 px shows up behind the 1920 x 1080 px artboard, even if I request the new document to open with just ONE artboard. I always need to delete the background artboad and then start working.

    This bug is present on both 2020 and 2019 versions.

    I have a MBookPro 2.4/32GB running the Catalina 10.15.3.

    Note.: I have found another person with the same issue

  12. Guides not scaling correctly on copy/paste into large canvas

    If I copy a 5"x5" rectangle from a regular document and paste it to a large canvas document, it remains 5"x5", as expected.

    However, if I convert the same shape to a guide and then copy it from a regular document to a large canvas document, the guide becomes 50"x50". This really makes things difficult when copying guides and artwork together into a large canvas.

  13. Shifting decimal

    Not sure really where this lies. And it doesn't seem to have any other affect that I am aware of, but this just started with the latest upgrade - 24.3.

    I typically select an outlined piece of text and copy it then create a new document that is a couple of inched bigger and paste it in. I do this when I am creating production files for large-format kiss cut vinyl production.

    What I have been doing is selecting the text then referring to the dimensions when I create the new file for output. However, today I noticed that when…

  15. ARTBOARD RESIZE ISSUE

    If you create a new document and make the artboard smaller than the old max of 227" and then try to resize it larger than 227" once it has opened, you cannot. It gives you an error message that says "Artboard cannot be created outside the canvas bounds". You are able to create a file larger than 227" x 227" from the very beginning however.

  17. Align/Distribute issue (v.24.2.3)

    Hello,
    I've seen that this is claimed that it is fixed on a previous update, but I have the latest (24..2.3) and still have issues.

    Situation:
    4 text layers in a 2nd level subgroup
    Selection of three out of four layers and the Align/Distribute is working as expected (align to Selection selected)
    Selection of all four layers (or group layer) and the Tool isn't working on 'Align to Selection' basis. It's working correctly as 'Align to Artboard'

    How am I supposed to align all layers in a Group? The only workaround is to align all layers but one and then…

  19. shift does not create square artboard, but uses previous proportions

    illustrator 2020 - 24.2.3
    mac os catalina 10.15.6

    in the newest version of illustrator, creating a new artboard while pressing shift just creates an artboard at the same dimensions as the previous one, rather than as a square. having to take the extra steps to manually type in exact square dimensions is a real time suck when i have to create many different sizes on one document. there should be a way to get that old setting back!

  20. WHEN CREATING NEW DOCUMENT IN 24.2, TWO ARTBOARDS ARE CREATED

    Creating new document. Two artboards appear, even though I only requested one. I also now have "video safe areas" showing in default and can't get them to not show upon setting up new document.
