  1. Saving operation get cancelled when Save in background is checked.

    When Save in the background checkbox is checked, saving the document using the script, gives an error operation was cancelled and the automation process stop. But if uncheck this setting everything works fine. This happens when we show our custom progress bar dialog. So I think progress bar dialog is interfering with the process of saving the document in the background. Could you please look into this issue and see what can be done for this at your end?

  2. SVG: RTL text is shifted

    We have tried to import correct SVG with RTL text. The SVG looks ok in browsers(Chrome, FireFox). If we just open the SVG file in Adobe Illustrator the RTL text will be shifted to the right. As we see Adobe Illustrator pre-processes SVG but the result looks incorrectly. Are there some specifics of RTL processing that we can take into account? We aspect to see the same SVG rendering as in browsers. (see attached file : as SVG files can not be attached, I've replaced .svg with .txt)

  3. svg text

    Exporting SVG on Illustrator CC 2019 23.0.2 on MacOS 10.14.3 is giving inconsistent results in regards to text. I am trying to export a file as an SVG with Font option set to SVG. However, the SVG file exported has some texts converted to paths or outlines and some texts are preserved as texts, which is what is desired. We have also tried this under Illustrator CC 2019 23.0.1 on Windows 10 Home with same results. We have included a sample file for you to test.

    Hi Akshay,

    We were able to confirm the issue that you see. The issue indeed does not happen with Illustrator 2018 (22.1).

    We identified hyphenation as the potential culprit. To workaround the issue, either disable hyphenation in the Paragraph panel or make sure text does not get hyphenated.

    We are sorry that you experience the issue and are working on fixing the issue.

    The Adobe Illustrator Team

    We have added this issue to our backlog. Meanwhile Please use the UI scaling preferences to scale down UI to low value and resolve the issue.

  5. Circle size change when rotating

    When I rotate a perfect circle, the size changes up to .004”. A 15”x15” circle, when rotated 17.184° becomes a 15.004”x15.004” circle. I know it may sound trivial, but I’m creating technical drawings that have to be accurate to the ten thousandths of an inch.

  6. Chart inaccuracies

    The chart tool often creates inaccurately sized shapes. This is especially noticeable in pie charts.

  7. svg export for screens distorted

    Vectors getting quite distorted creating svgs of logos even with 5 decimal places and no minify. I've had to copy and paste into Sketch then export svgs from there, not ideal at all.

  8. Image resolution wrong when rotated

    When you place an image into a document the resolution is shown correctly, but if you rotate it, Illustrator continue to consider original pixel width and height as if image was not rotated.
    Example:
    - Import new 800x400px @72dpi image.
    - Illustrator shows correctly 72ppi.
    - Rotate it 90°.
    - Illustrator now shows 144x36ppi, as if image size was 800w x 400h but it was stretched to 400w x 800h (so 800/400 = 2x -> 144 and 400/800 = 0.5x -> 36).

  9. In a Group (Isolation mode) , cannot set a sub-Group as key-object for alignment

    Illustrator CC 2018
    Windows 10

    I have a Group, containing other sub-Groups.
    I enter Isolation mode by double-clicking on the Group.
    Once inside, I select all sub-Groups and want to set one of them as key-object for alignment. I can't.
    It works with single objects but not with sub-Groups. It's very handicapping.

  10. Error using picas

    This error has existed in Illustrator since at least version 10, in 2001.


    1. Switch units to Picas in Preferences > Units… or by right-clicking in the ruler and selecting Picas.


    2. Select any object.


    3. Go to Object > Transform > Move…


    4. Enter a negative value higher than -1p0. e.g. -0p9.


    5. Watch as the value is converted to a positive and the object moves to the right, or don, not to the left or up.


    In earlier versions of Illustrator this bug exited across the application in any dialogue that excepted a distance, including Offset Path, Effect > Convert to Shape (using…

  11. Rotate tool Alt click and Wacom tablet

    Hey :)
    I use illustrator CC 2017.

    I use my Wacom intuos for almost everything since it is easier and I am comfortable to it than using mouse.

    I use Rotate tool to copy objects in circle with a center point.( Select Rotate tool, Hold Alt and click to choose the center of the object) .

    When I use wacom tablet to achieve this, the Center point keeps floating with the mouse pointer. I have to use my mouse to click to set a center point.
    I have used it in multiple computers and with other wacom devices too. I…

  12. Decimal point massive problems (AI CC 2017.1.0 macOS 10.12.6)

    I’ve documented the issue here:

    this problem has been discussed ad nauseam on the forum, but it still persists: AI 2017.1.0 on macOS 10.12.6 still has massive problems with handling of the decimal comma vs. point. On my system (macOS 10.12.6), all dialog boxes within Illustrator display numbers with decimal commas, but any operation (such as moving an item with cursor keys or using the cursor Up or Down keys within text boxes) makes the values multiply by 100 and then "explode".

    When I start a new document, the Width textbox of the page says "210,00 mm". If I click…
