  2. Drag, alt, and resizing are all working incorrectly & create new non-existent objects

    Items I select and resize seem to adjust from arbitrary points that appear, unrelated to the shape of the geometry. Attached, is a screenshot where I changed the scale of the blue diamond. The other green selected box doesn't actually exist, but is now included in the geometry of the original. If you group an object which has one of these phantoms, it will stay in the group indefinitely. Additionally, the alt-drag feature creates many duplicates. If you're scaling using the alt-command, it will work for a second and then start duplicating.

    I am on Illustrator 22.1,
    Mac OSX High…

  3. Illustrator CC (multiple versions) stroke alignment error when rectangle is set to a certain size

    I have tried this across multiple computers that have Illustrator CC at different updates (mine is 21.1.0) & get the same result every time.

    If you create a rectangle that is at least 48" w x 120" h, set the stroke to 0.25pt, no fill, align the stroke to the inside and the review the bottom left corner an error appears. The bottom part of the path tapers from the correct thickness to no thickness from right to left. It seems to go away if you make the stroke slightly thicker or if you make the rectangle smaller. Not sure…

  5. Can't move an object less than 1 pt

    When I drag an object to move it, it will move in increments of 1pt (e.g. I cannot move it 0.5pt).

  6. compound path

    Hi. When i make compound path and give it a gradient and rotate it manually by 180 degrees everything is ok. When this object i rotate back by 180 degrees also everything is ok (gradient back to original 0 degrees). This how it should works. But when i save file and open it again this rotated object is "damaged" when i try to rotate it by 180 degrees this gradient dont rotate but it should. This happens only when i save file and open it again. All guys in my team have same problem with gradients in compound path.

  8. Illustrator Crashes when editing graphs

    Illustrator CC 2018 v22.1 - I've created a number of different bar graphs. When I click on one to edit the graph "Type...", it crashes each and every time. What's going on? I can still edit and update the data without it crashing. I tried clearing/deleting my preferences but that didn't change anything.

    Update from Tamiko:

    Anyways I kind of remedied the situation myself by re-drawing the graph that was causing the crashing from scratch. It seems to have stopped the crashing from happening and I’m now able to edit they graph type without problem.

    Thanks for the update Tamiko.

  9. Artboard Tool button crashes Illustrator

    I'm trying to put this in the "Illustrator Bugs" category, but the button I have to click says "Post idea". Apologies if this is in the wrong area.

    Every time I click the artboard button Illustrator crashes.

    I'm using a 2017 iMac
    Illustrator version 22.0.1

    I've been having the same problem since the last time I updated Illustrator (several months). Doing research in the trouble shooting forum leads me to believe this has been a problem since October 2017.

    No one had posted a solution in the forum.

    I spent a while on Adobe's website searching for the appropriate phone…

  11. Tools aren't working from toolbox. All of them are now erasers or disabled.

    Version: Adobe Illustrator 22.0.1

    Opened a new project. I only just manage to open my rulers and set up some guides before the line tool refuses to work. Has the icon denoting that it will not work on that layer next to the cursor. Try a different tool and it's the same thing. Try opening a new layer, and it's still the same. So I open a project I was working on yesterday. I'm on the direct selection tool here, but instead of the pointer, I have a circle for a cursor. Curious, I drag it across work. It's in…

  17. Anchor Point Tool can create shape so huge, not enough memory to Undo

    I was using the Anchor Point Tool to add handles to an anchor point (using mouse pointer to click and drag handles into existence), and suddenly, the shape stroke line shot off the artboard into virtual oblivion (apparently a gigantic loop causing a massively huge shape). When I tried to Undo (Ctrl-Z) a message box popped up saying "The operation cannot complete because there isn't enough memory (RAM) available."

    I f'ing lost several hours of work because I had to close Illustrator and not save ('cuz I was afraid it would reload into the same condition, thus destroying many [MANY]…

  19. No touch workspace

    In Illustrator CC 2015 (and 2017 & 2018) the Touch Workspace is missing.
    The graphic tablet works correctly (pressure, dynamics) but the Touch Workspace is missing.
    All the relevant tips I've found in Internet was followed, with no result.
    There's a manual way to enable the touch workspace.

    Ironically, the touch workspace was present in Illustrator BEFORE I bought the graphic tablet.

    System:
    Mac Mini late 2012, using Boot Camp, Windows 10 (latest), 16GB RAM, Samsung SSD Evo850
    Graphic tablet: Huion DWH69 (latest drivers)

    Please refer to our system requirement for a supported configuration. We do not support/test touch workspace on boot camp and an external tablet.
