  1. Type on a path tool resizing causes crash

    I have the latest version of Illustrator CC 2020 v. 24.0.3. Unfortunately, everytime I try to resize a type on path, Illustrator crashes. I have restarted the app and system and that didn't help.

  2. Dashed Line not working

    Using Illustrator CC 2020 V. 24.0.3 on MacOS Mojave 10.14

    The dashed line effect cannot be applied. As soon as I make use of the gap field, I can see a preview but then when I click anywhere the effect just disappears. And when I try to create outlines it just turns into a normal non-dashed line.

    Hi Dana,

    I tried the same at my end but not able to reproduce the same. Can you please provide some more info regarding this issue:
    1. Are you facing this problem with some specific content or all the path types?
    2. Are you applying stroke properties from stroke panel or control panel?
    3. Will it be possible for you to share the test file?

    Thanks
    Anish

  3. Duplicating an Artboard with art on it and then Undoing it, causes crash

    if you drag and artboard with art on it while holding option to duplicate, it duplicates fine, but if you Undo, the duplicated artboard remains and you can't delete. sometimes if you try and select the artboard illustrator will crash. the only way to update is to reopen the affected file.

  5. Illustrator Not Holding Clipping Masks

    Hello. I'm not sure if this is just an "operator error" or if this is a bug in the new Illustrator 2020, but every time I reopen my AI file the clipping masks have been removed. Is there a fix for this? It started happening when I updated to 2020.

    Thanks in advance!

  9. Create new file dialog box lags

    When I'm working with multiple files, opening and closing, there are times where I copy an object to a new file. I use Command-N, but the dialog box lags and takes several seconds to show up. Is it trying to connect to something online? Why is there lag?

  10. text wrap image link

    AI 23.0.3 (64-bit) on Windows 10

    Automatic image update (if you change an image outside of AI it will ask if you want to update the image in you AI file) does not work when text wrap is on.
    The image has been masked to a shape then text wrap on this new shape.

    Hopefully this is a simple fix because I don't want to keep turning text wrapping off when I want to refresh the image.

  11. Eyedropper tool not showing correct colors sampled outside of Illustrator

    When I click and drag the eyedropper tool outside of Illustrator to sample a color from something else (a website, pdf document, etc.), the color isn't correctly picked up.
    For example, if I move the eyedropper over something orange, it shows in Illustrator as blue or black; even if I sample a large white space, it shows in Illustrator as a different color. It seems to only be showing sampled colors as white, neutral, black/gray, and shades of blue.
    The program is up-to-date.
    I tried it in two browsers, Chrome and Safari, and the results were the same in both. …

    We have seen this issue specific to macOS 10.15. Enabling “Screen Recording” access right to Illustrator resolved this issue.

    You can change this setting by going to Apple > System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Screen Recording and add Illustrator Application.

    Please try this and reply in comment if the above suggestion worked for you.

  12. Illustrator could only partially read this file

    When I load the first attached file in 24.0.1 (with Windows 10) it loads OK and I can edit it. When I save it and try to reload it in 24.0.1 it says Illustrator could only partially read this file. That's awful when Illustrator cannot read a file it has just saved.

    The layers (and sublayers) under ALL > WATERWAYS > A-B beginning with A have all gone missing when it reads in what it can. Other parts may be missing too.

    It works fine in 23.1. and I have had to revert to using that.

    I have lost a…

  15. Version 24.0.1 becomes unresponsive

    I'm using Illustrator 24.0.1 with Windows 10 Pro

    Since updating Illustrator keeps becoming entirely unresponsive midway through working with no warning and no way to save or quit.

    Sometimes I can move the mouse over menu items, the drop down menu will be completely black and items 'appear' as I hover over them but I cannot click them. Other times I can not even access the menus and it is entirely unresponsive.

    Since updating it has happened daily even when working on relatively simple artworks.

  16. Gradient issue on import

    When exporting PDFs from indesign that contain a gradient, then opening the PDF into illustrator, the gradient completely vanishes. Tried placing the PDF into illustrator and it previews but if embedded or flattened, it disappears. Tried straight copy and paste form indesign into illustrator and nothing. This has never been an issue before and is required when printing as clients often supply indesign files and the print RIP requires illustrator etc. etc.

  17. Opening WMF through Windows Command Line creates distortion

    When opening a WMF in the latest 2020 AI via the Windows command line, e.g.

    "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 2020\Support Files\Contents\Windows\Illustrator.exe" 745-2969563.wmf

    It opens the WMF, but it is distorted as in the attached wmf_distorted.png.

    However, if you open a blank document and import it with File->Place, it renders it correctly

    I appreciate any and all help.

  19. Illustrator v 24 asset export bug with sizing incorrectly

    asset export bug, it does not export assets at the size selected but instead makes them super tiny and unusable. I have had to download the last version before that so that I can use asset export correctly with what I have selected.
