  1. Blob Brush changes size after undo operation


    1. Illustrator CC 2017.1.0


    2. -I Select blob brush on 2pt.
      -draw a bit with it
      -Hit undo and the blob brush suddenly changes to a much larger size even though it says 2pt in the menu
      -The only way to get it back is to go to Blob brush menu, select 1pt hit ok, then go back to blob brush menu and select 2pt again.


    3. I expect that when I hit undo the blob brush will stay the correct size


    4. It changes size every time I hit undo

  2. Direct Selection tool does not work on text anchors....

    For some reason I can no longer select text by anchor using the direct selection tool. If I use the Regular selection tool it acts as it did before the update but the direct selection tool does not.

  4. Pressure option for brush is greyed out in AI while using Wacom Tablet

    Adobe Illustrator CC 22.0.0

    Ever since the new update, every time I'm trying to change my paintbrush to pressure sensitive option from the drop down list box, the 'pressure ' option is greyed out and can't be selected. 'Fixed' and 'random' are the only ones that aren't greyed out.

    How can I set the pressure senstivity option on?

    Please help.

  5. Blob Brush leaves temporary marks

    When I'm moving around the cursor, without pressing any buttons, and have the Blob Brush tool selected I get these marks. They disappear if I switch to the selection tool.

  9. 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…

  10. Illustrator plays a <ding> sound when trying to move objects

    I am attempting to move a vector object from one side to the next using my mouse. While selected, I attempt to move the object with my mouse and I am hearing a "ding" (as if there is a message pop up) and nothing. The object will not move (The layer is not locked), and there is no error message. The object will only move with the keyboard keys. Please help! I recently upgraded to CC2018.

  11. Keyboard commands for zoom and hand tool don't work.

    Illustrator CC 2018 running on High Sierra. The keyboard command for the zoom and hand tools doesn't always work. Quitting and restarting the application does't resolve the issue. I have to restart my machine to restore functionality. It's seems to be be an entirely random issue.

    Please accept my sincere apology for the inconvenience. Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

    Can you also please try after turning Off the OS app “Enable Ask Siri” ? One of the users has got it working after turning that off.

  12. Gradient Annotator tool bug

    Gradient Annotator tool is not visible for some objects but it is for others. See screen shot: visible on the rectangle, but when I edit the gradient of the compound shape, the annotator is not visible.

  13. Stroke size goes nuts under 1pt sizes

    When drawing a regular line with pen tool and changing the size of the stroke to less than 1pt, it automatically switches to sizes higher than 1pt.
    For example, if I want my stroke to be 0.5 pt, and if I select it in a dropdown menu, it will automatically turn into 5pt stroke and that will also be applied on the line. Same thing when entering the value manually with the keyboard - entering 0.5 will automatically convert into 5 and change the stroke to be thicker instead of making it thinner. This only started happening in the newest…

  14. Free Transform Tool hidden under Puppet Warp in toolbar

    Illustrator CC 2018 22.1.0

    The Free Transform Tool is no hidden under the Puppet Wrap Tool. The Free Transform Tool should be the default tool. The Puppet Transform Tool should be the one which is hidden.

    In a typical day we use the Free Transform Tool quite frequently, while we almost never use the Puppet Wrap Tool. I do not speak for everyone, but only for our design studio and in my personal experience.

    Before someone posts something about keeping the bounding box visible, please be aware that to remove as much useless clutter from our drawings while editing an…

  15. Image Trace has a problem keeping the artwork in the same location from the original.

    Illustrator version 22.0.1

    Image trace seems to have a problem keeping artwork in the same location from the original. Screen Shot 1 shows some text that I have rasterized to be image traced. I work at a die making facility so rasterized images need to be made into vectors for our CNC machines to "read them."

    As it stands, if I image trace this text it is going to be transposed to the right and below the original. The image traced result in Screen Shot 2 is the magenta color. My original rasterized image is in black. When this specific…

  19. no resize handles

    My Selection tool does not show the resize handles anymore- this is making it nearly impossible to design easily- I have to measure and assign all aspects if it isnt sized right the first go. I have tried everything to fix it and I need it for school

    I am closing the ticket due to lack of response.
    Please get in touch with us at sharewithai@adobe.com or any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Please give a reference to this post so that we can identify you.

  20. Illustrator v24.0 on macOS 10.15.1: rotate-panel has changed to the bad side

    The rotate-tool had the numeric angle-input activated till v23. now in v24, this field has to be selected manually, which costs me a lot of time. Please change this back. To me this bad for efficiency.

    My workflow before:
    - select path
    - press command-R
    - enter angle
    - press enter
    I can do this blind and very fast.

    My workflow now means to manually select the field for entering the rotating angle, which is very annoying ! It takes much more time to do this now.
