Align to Artboard

All version of Illustrator before CC 2018 the Align to.. command would stick to Align to Artboard unless you clicked on another object to define a Key Object.

This upgrade keeps jumping back to align selections.

    "Downloading separate builds for certain artists..." I'll be very hesitant to ever install a Beta again, because my settings are not restored whenever something get's messed up.

    After updating to illustrator cc 2018 I have notice a bug that has been driving crazy. the "ALIGN TO:" button option switches to your current selected mode to another.
    When I have "ALIGN TO ARTWORK" selected, every time I open or click on the "ARTBOARD" option, it will switch to "SELECTION" and lock. When I click done and return the option doesn't return to my correct option of "ALIGN TO ARTWORK"

    When will this be fixed in the General Release? Downloading separate builds for certain artists is going to create a nightmare of versions floating around our company.

    The fix works for me. When entering "Edit artboards" menu, the icon indeed changes to "Align to selection" but it is grayed out. And after exiting "Edit artboards" menu, everything is back to normal "Align to artboard". So thank you very much indeed! :)

    Finally! This fix seems to be working completely for me. I hope the same for the rest of you.

    I was hoping this would fix the other artboard align issue. When you copy/drag an item to a new artboard and try to center align it on that artboard, it still references the OLD artboard and just center aligns it on top of the original.

    Now that this as been fixed, please fix the bugs with the Character panel too. And GPU performance issues with Nvidia. I'm still frustrated on those.

    Aren't you guys ashamed of this? Remember when you used to sell a complete product?

    Is the pressure off now that you can just fix it in the next years CC release and break something else in the process? Why do I need to have 10 **** versions of illustrator installed, constantly switching between the ones with bugs that effect me just to do my job?!

    According to the "About Illustrator->credits" , we have to write your complains to Adobe in Hindi. Hope it will help.

    This is a deal breaker. Got to be fixed or I have to rollback, in which case, where is the value proposition in CC?

  • Mike commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please fix!!! I use Illustrator nearly every day for the past 6 years and have used the 'Align to Section' feature only a handful of times. I use the 'Align to Artboard' feature every single day.

    All I want for Christmas is my Align to Artboard default fixed, If I don't get all my presents delivered to all the good little boys and girls this Christmas because I have to keep switching back, I swear by all that is Holy I will deliver only COAL to all the coders at Adobe. Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night.

    Come on Adobe. You are charging us now a lot more and you cannot fix a simple align tool for over a month.
