  1. Fix NO handles on shapes

    Shapes created with shape tools do NOT have corner rotate options available anymore.

    I'm really starting to look into Corel Draw or really any other program just so I don't loose more work DAYS trying to figure out the latest friggin bug release - not seeing a lot of improvements just bugs.

    How about you just leave things alone for a while and focus on quality and reliability.
    That'd be nice.

    Adobe is making itself pointless and overly expensive with lost productivity.

  2. freeform Gradient and Blend Make

    I make an object and fill it using Freeform Gradient. Then I duplicate it, move it and select both objects. When I go to menu Object > Blend then the "Make" option is greyed. The same steps work fine with linear or radial gradients.

    Note : Using Object >Expand Appearance shows "Non-Native Art" in the layers panel.

  4. Constrain (shift key) doesn't work with Smart Guides turned on

    When smart guides are on none of the constrain features (holding down shift) work properly, whether it's rotating, reflecting, etc. It just sort of jumps back to one position, often the original position, and won't move. The little magenta text that lets you know the angle etc. also goes a little crazy and looks like it's trying to display a few different words on top of each other.

  5. Bounding box handles on lines disappeared - can't easily extend line without using Scale 'E'.

    Hi Adobe!

    Adobe Illustrator V23.0.1 running.on Mac OS 10.14

    Centre handles on bounding boxes for straight (Horizontal / vertical) lines have disappeared.

    It only seems to be on straight lines (Horizontal / vertical).

    As an illustrator, losing this basic functionality is a huge loss. Having to select a different tool (Scale 'E'), then unselect to select a different object, then back to 'E', all just to extend a few lines, is a baffling workflow and slowing me down a huge amount.

    Why have straight lines been treated any differently to shape objects or even diagonal lines? If anything it's more…

  6. Scaling object(s) is causing the associated bounding box to become a shape ('expanded object' appears on the screen after scaling).

    Seems to be occurring repeatedly - updated/reinstalled Illustrator 2019, which had received it for a short period, but now it has re-emerged. Driving me mad! Seems to occur more with smart guides and holding the shift key.

    See attached for examples.

  8. bug: [PARM] error after changing stroke alignment

    I clicked the 'align outside' button in the stroke panel and got this error.
    I would keep popping op so I had to close AI.

  9. Selecting Anchor Points is WAY TOO HARD

    Why is it necessary to click 30 or more times just to delete an anchor point? I have the tolerance set to the maximum, but it makes no difference. When one zooms in, it should make it easier, but nothing changes. Very time consuming and frustrating. Please fix. Illustrator CC 2017 v21.02

  10. Ellipse Tool not working

    Circle/Ellipse tool has some sort of preset effect making it look jagged. This should not be the default.

    This is a basic feature which should be working properly -please fix this or we cannot continue using this product.

  11. Dashed strokes in actions do not reproduce correctly.

    Using Illustrator CC 2018, attempted to create an action that created a 0.35 pt line with a dashed stroke with the following settings: 40 pt, 5 pt, 10 pt, 5 pt, 10 pt, 5 pt.
    Expected result: action sets the weight of any line to 0.35 pt with dashed settings matching the above.
    Actual result: action sets the weight to 0.35, but with dashed settings of 5 pt, 0 pt, 10 pt, 5 pt, 10 pt, 5 pt. Even with different dashed settings, the first two values (first dash value and first gap value) are reproduced incorrectly.

  12. center Resize handles disappear when setting guides from the rulers

    When setting a guide by dragging from the ruler, the center resize handles of a selected object (the handle it is directly in the middle of a selected object) disappear. A short cut i used to use often is if i wanted to find a centerline of something, i would create a temporary square between two points, then drop a guide at the center where the resize handle is because i know that is the center of the two points.

  13. Rotate tool Glitch

    My rotate tool when used for copying with or without my wacom, starts sticking, and the object just keeps moving with my cursor. My only fix is restarting and hoping the app saved my recent changes. This is hindering me from doing BASIC and Simple things like copying a custom shape and maintaining the circular composition. I was trying to make a unique cycle like shape. I put the rotate point in the center and i was attempting to duplicate that shape inside the circle but instead of copying or doing anything, it just kept rotating even after i let…

  14. Line tool is immune to the Constrain Angle

    When you set up Constraint Angle to 30 or whatever is different form 0 or 90, pick up Line tool and hold Shift, it still snaps to 0, 45, 90, 135... instead of 30, 75, 120, 165...

  15. Objects rotating when trying to transform or move

    When manipulating shapes, the cursor will try and rotate the object. I will try and grab a handle to transform the shape and the object rotates. I have to zoom into the object in order to stop it from rotating despite the cursor showing the correct tool. For example if I want to make a simple box longer, I'll put my cursor over the middle handle on the left side of the box. My cursor will change from an arrow to the one with arrows facing away from each other. The moment I press my mouse the object will immediately…

  17. SNAP TO POINT

    Illustrator 2020, Snap to point doesn't respond anymore.
    Even if it's clearly turned on in the "view" menu.
    It's getting pretty upsetting.

  19. Selection tool keeps defaulting to Hand tool

    Selection tool will default to Hand tool after sitting idle, and I cannot choose another tool. This will apply to all open files. After 5-10 minutes, it will switch back on its own.

  20. freeform gradient broken

    I have had this problem with the freeform gradient tool since it was introduced and it has not been fixed. Adding more than one color point results in other color points disappearing.
