  1. Curved Lines Unclear

    Any sort of curve that is drawn, imported, or even text is unclear? I have uninstalled and reinstalled and have no idea what is going on? See image below. Its not a fill or stroke setting. Anybody have any idea what the hell is going on? HELP

  3. "Apply gradient across stroke" shows terrible banding compared to a standard linear gradient

    When applying a gradient to a stroke with the "apply gradient across stroke" option selected, the resulting gradient is very poor quality, with lots of visible banding.

    In the attached image the top gradient is formed by feathering a rectangle with corner radius of 31.235 px by 20px. The quality is fine, although feathering makes specifying specific colours a hassle.

    The middle object is the same rectangle with a 40pt stroke, with a white-to-black gradient applied with "apply gradient across stroke" selected. The gradient is very uneven, showing clear banding.

    The bottom is a the same linear gradient applied as…

  4. Return feature constraint proportion while holding shift;

    I often wish Adobe employes used Illustrator themselves. I'd like them to experience having their preferences reset to default with even minor upgrades, spending an hour adjusting the shortcut keys to work like a mac, and now that I've had a chance to vent a little, the latest offense:

    The ability to proportionally scale objects by holding shift while dragging is ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL to my workflow mixing photos and raster art into an illustration to the point I'm using Sketch more and more while wondering how this bug got out and I hope a fix is on the way soon.

  6. Inconsistent line thickness with Surface pen + touch zoom

  10. Minus Front - Incomplete Shapes

    This is an odd issue that is kind of hard to explain. Whenever I am using the minus front tool on some objects, the appearance doesn't end up quite right. For example, I subtracted these outlined text characters from a black background. The blue outlines show that they were subtracted correctly, but the white background showing through is cut off in the wrong spots?

  11. Undoing Warp Tool Transforms


    1. Software Details:
      Windows 10 / Ver. 1809 / OS Build 17763.316 / Illustrator Ver. 23.0.2


    2. Steps Taken:
      a. Selecting Warp tool (or any other from the warp tools palette)
      b. Selecting an object
      c. Warping the object either once or repeatedly
      d. Undoing all warps to restore original shape.


    3. Expected Result
      The undo command would undo my actions

    4. Actual Result
      Although the outline that appears when hovering over the object had returned to the anticipated state after the necessary number of undos, the object itself remained unaltered - sometimes disappearing. Subsequent undos would only affect prior actions on other objects.…

  16. Free transform not scaling correctly

    When scaling a stroke with Free Transform it jumps to a ~30º angle (pics attached). this happens without holding Shift etc. All I want to do is extend the stroke.

    Smart Guides is turned on, I've tried turning off/on Bounding Box (no luck) and turned off "Enable Content Aware Defaults" in prefs.

    I'm on MacOS HIgh Sierra with CC 2019. I've never experienced this before

  17. Dégradé de forme libre / Freeform Lines / bug

    Bonjour, j'utilise le nouvelle outil dégradé de forme libre avec plaisir. Cependant, je rencontre un problème récurrent : lorsque je sélectionne un objet contenant un dégradé de forme libre contenant 4 points et 2 couleurs, l'un des points disparait systématiquement. J'ai vérifié si l'un des points étaient en dehors de l'objet, ce n'est pas le cas. Je rencontre ce problème sur plusieurs objet, dans des documents différents. Est-ce un bug ? Avez-vous une solution à ce problème ? Merci

  18. Pen tool located in type tools

    Took me a while to find but found the pen tool hanging out with the type tools. Please stop fixing things that are not broken. I remember before CC things works pretty well. Now every time there's an update, some other bugs pop up that weren't there before. Is this just a way for engineer job security? Well whatever it is, its becoming a major pain.

    Hi,

    There was an issue in 23.0 causing tools to shift between groups. This has been fixed in latest update (23.0.2). After update, please reset the Basic and Advanced toolbars by opening the tool drawer (3 dots at bottom of the tool bar), then using ‘Reset’ from the fly-out menu (on top right).

    Apologies for the inconvenience caused by this issue.

    With Best Regards,
    Raghuveer Singh

  19. Illustrator loses focus after editing in group

    When a group is double clicked to edit inside (isolation mode), on leaving isolation mode the Illustrator application loses focus and clicking on any tool has no effect. To regain focus the icon in the Windows Taskbar has to be clicked.

  20. path guides centre edges disappear when dragging a guide from the ruler

    Path guides centre edges disappear when dragging a guide from the ruler in CC, in previous versions you could quickly line up a guide to the centre of a box now you have to zoom out to see the centre. Another feature that worked great in previous versions now lost.
