  1. CSS Properties: Generated CSS selectors are wrong sometimes

    Hi.
    OS: Windows 10 x64
    Illustrator: 24.1.2 and older versions

    Steps:
    I have drawn two paths (shapes) on the same layer.
    I have given these names:
    abc1 and abc11 to each path

    When I select one of them, the generated css in CSS properties panel is ok, the selector's name is right. The issue happens just when I select both paths at the same time and try to generate the CSS.

    The selector name for abc11, is changed wrongly to abc111 (an extra 1 at the end).

    Expected result:
    .abc1
    {
    position : absolute ;
    left : 120px;
    top :…

  4. Cannot activate new fonts

    I'm using Illustrator 24.1.2 with a creative cloud student subscription on Mac OS Catalina. When I try to activate any font not installed locally, the activation process will go on for five minutes, then terminate itself. No font would be installed. I Googled around for similar problems, and many suggested looking at the "Font" tab of the creative cloud app. I don't have that tab. The only tab in my creative cloud app is "Apps".

    When I open illustrator, the outlines of the different visual templates are overlapping the text below... Looks pretty sloppy, Adobe.

  6. Symbol disappears when edited in place

    when you have a symbol on the artboard, double click it to go into isolation mode, make some changes, exit isolation mode - the symbol disappears from the artboard.

  8. "Save as" Illustrator bug

    Hi. I have the latest 2020 version of Illustrator 24.1.2.
    When I press "Command" + "S" it starts to save. Once it is finished saving it used to have an asterisk in the file name that disappears to indicate that it has been saved. The asterisk no longer disappears. It remains.
    Then when I close after saving it gives me the attached "save" box, and says that "if I don't save my changes will be lost", but if I click "Command" + "S" and then close without saving it does save.
    It makes things very slow. I can't work like…

  9. Guides will disappear while dragging with "draw in real time" option feature activated!

    Thhis is NO idea. It's a BUG!

    Illustrator CC 24.1.2

    Guide line will disappear with "drawing in real time" option in preferences activated while one will drag it. Deactivating this great , new "feature" will make it work again.

    So the new SUPER DUPER feature is just as buggy as the whole software, still.

  10. Adobe Illustrator 2020 (24.1.2)-The latest updated version KEEPS CRASHING on MacOS Mojave

    Hi
    I'm having crashing issues with the simplest movements like dragging, changing the type sizes, accidentally double-clicking etc.
    First the screen freezes.
    Later everything goes blank/my screen sometimes goes full black and forced shutdown follows.
    I'm using Macbook Air - MacOs Mojave version 10.14.6. (1.6 GHz Intel Core i5/ 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3).
    This is happening every time I open up AI without exception.
    Note: When I started my computer in safe mode-AI is working normally.
    What should we do?
    Thanks in advance.

  11. Locked Layers won't allow file to save

    If layers are locked, AI file won't save and close. It will continue to prompt you to save multiple times but won't allow you to close the file due to the asterisk. The asterisk will only leave if you save the file with the layers unlocked.

  12. Illustrator suddenly changed from RGB to CMYK

    Windows 10, Illustrator 2020


    1. Working on a digital comic and suddenly colour has been changed
      from RGB to CMYK, which means I cannot copy and paste the colours
      I was repeatedly using anymore.


    2. Black colour has been automatically replaced by a dark greenish black;
      upon further inspection, it can be seen that it is not completely black. It feels odd at plain sight. I have manually selected each line which has changed colour, but it keeps going back to that dark greenish black.

  13. Measuring/positioning elements improperly includes shadow/effects

    It used to be that when you selected an object/element with a drop-shadow (or other effect), the measurements did NOT include the drop-shadow. HOWEVER, now they do and it's causing me lose-my-mind!!! To measure and or position ANYTHING correctly, you have to first turn-off the shadow (in the Appearance panel) then position/measure and THEN turn-on the drop-shadow!!! Seriously, this is an enormous time-waster. PLEASE, allow us to turn off the function where everything is measured-and-positioned by it's drop-shadow. PLEASE

  14. Illustrator 2020 (24.1.1, windows 10) cannot open file

    Cannot open one of my illustrator files.
    Every time I try to open it illustrator freezes and doesn't unfreeze until closed. I have uninstalled and reinstalled illustrator, restarted my laptop, tried turning off the firewall. I tried attaching it to this comment but it wouldn't load.
    thanks

  16. Incompatibility with the App 'RightZoom'

    I was investigating a phenomena of very slow selection of objects and an unintentional motion of object to the cursor position although mouse is not pressed (object not dragged).

    I found, after a lot of test and eliminations that the problem was conflict with the app 'RightZoom' that allows Window Zoom while keeping menu visible, something that Mac normally does not do (menu line disappears, appearing only when mouse is pushed to the upper border). Once the app is shutdown or removed, selection goes back to normal - fast and stable.

  18. 3D Extrude and Bevel

    When I apply 3D Extrude and Bevel with cap set to 0 and surface set to no shading my image now has a background. Now I tried a few things to correct the image in 3D Extrude and bevel and the entire image is gone. The image frame is still there.

    This occurred after the latest update to Adobe Illustrator 2020 24.1.2
