  1. transform rotate not working as it should

    Draw a vertical line.

    Choose Object > Rotate

    Change the degrees and click Copy.

    The original has now rotated the chosen amount and made a copy at the same time.

    The original vertical line should still be there, and a new one (the copy) should be at an angle. Not both rotated.

  3. Simplify preview problem

    When I choose Path > Simplify… and have the preview button checked, the simplification happens as many times as I adjust the percentage. ie it will simply to 99% and the 97% of 99%.
    Whether I click OK or Cancel, all of the actions have been performed and I have to press undo until it is back to normal.
    This problem arrived at the same time as the scale/rotate/reflect etc preview issue (which have now been fixed thank god).

  4. Change to dimension in properties panel applies to wrong object in certain situation...

    Minor bug. To reproduce:

    Have at least two objects on screen.
    Select one.
    In the properties panel, change the width or height but do not press enter or tab.
    Select the other object.

    Result: The change in dimension is applied to the second object, not the first.

  5. Guides with an angle won't move when zoomed in 300% or more (Illustrator CC 23.0.3)

    I hope I chose the right category.
    Illustrator will not allow me to move smart guides that have any angle to them when Im zoomed in to 300% or more. This is extremely "I about to break my keyboard" frustrating. This seems to be an on going issue that is "patched" but re-emerges with every other update!

  6. Negative Offset not functioning using Pica

    When units are set to Pica

    Create a shape, choose Object Menu > Path > Offset Path. Input a negative number and move to Miter Limit. Number changes to a positive.

    Select the input field again and use arrow keys to create a negative number. Number changes to a positive.

    Use a negative number from with circumstance and click okay. Object obtains an offset path equal to the positive number (not negative).

    This behavior is preventing me from doing my work!

  8. 'Divide Objects Below' divides hidden layers

    'Divide Objects Below' command also divides hidden layers. Illustrator then crashes.

  10. Color Fill Bug

    Hello! Yesterday, I finished drawing a comic. I was supposed to color it in, but the color fill was not working on anything on the drawing. I tested using the fill color on a separate drawing and it worked. It’s only this one drawing that can’t be colored using fill at all.

    I do the press and hold technique to color. My iPad Pro is version 12.3.1 and is up to date.

    Update: It’s gotten a little better. I can only color small objects but that’s it.

    I tried to reboot iIlustrator, reinitialize the preferences etc..., with no effect and I have no clue how to solve this irritating issue

  12. Gardient tool preview useless render

    Gradient tool prompts a render dialog every time it is used since the CC2019 versions. Latest Vers did not bring any improvement. Any time I drag on a gradient or apply one, I get up to 25 sec of render preview dialog box but for WHAT please. Anyone else?

  13. Make it usable on ipad - Draw is extremely inferior

    Adobe Draw is an inferior product to Illustrator. The promise of creating vector art and moving it to Illustrator only works about half the time and you do not have the ability to interact (select manipulate etc) individual objects. I am sure that it is complicated to make a desktop software work on an ipad but honestly, I am a bit confused as to why this does not exist. My computer has way less space than my ipad pro. It also allows me to plug a tablet in and use a stylus throughout illustrator to do whatever I want. I…

  14. Please bring the basic brush back.

    Please can you bring back basic brush where I can draw from the scratch without using the rounded paint brush? I used to to be able to do that.
