  1. Locked background objects unlocking/moving when using lasso selection tool

    When I select using the LASSO tool, on screen shows the correct points have been selected, but when I then try to move just these selected points, Illustrator also moves the LOCKED background objects underneath. This error does not happen when I select using other tools. This is clearly a bug!

  2. 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...

  4. grid snapping don't works on internal point

    it's not really Smart Guides, take a path drawn freely. after activating the grid, if you want to align an internal point of the path to a point grid you can't. the magnetisme apply only on the bounding box of the path not on the point you show.

  5. Smart guides not working on Text Area boxes

    Mac OS 10.11.6 El Capitan (and also Windows 10)
    Illustrator CC 2018

    Hi!
    I have a problem with the latest version of Illustrator (I just upgraded from CS6):
    Smart Guides do not appear on Text Area boxes (corners or sides), for example when I want to draw a line with the pen from one corner of a box to a corner of another box).
    They do appear normally on other objects.

    Snap to Grid and Snap to Pixel are off. Snap to Point is on, but the problem is the same when off.

    Is anyone experiencing the same? Is there…

  6. Sharp Corner Edge Displaying Wrong

    I've noticed on this newer version of Illustrator that some corners are showing an odd line overlap. Noticeable when zoomed in. I've attached pictures.

    It is also applying this to shapes made in older versions.

  7. blend line "profile" interpolation not working

    I was trying out the new quick tip that was posted on youtube for "linocut" blend lines https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCyE91-D-KI

    I was trying to blend between a variety of line types and follow along with the demo and noticed that my up-to-date copy of illustrator is not doing any tip interpolation.

    I downloaded the demo file from the video page and the tip blending works, but in the photo I provide shows my attempt to blend on the right and the tips are square.

    Following is the result of investigation:
    This issue happens with blends created when stroke with flat edge is applied to one path then later variable width profile is changed.

    Workaround: Select the blend object, Release the blend, change path’s Variable width profile to Uniform, and then apply desired Variable width profile again, Now try apply Blend.

  8. Macmini ベータ版 ガイドラインのバグ

    パスをガイドライン化するとガイドライン化したツールが一定方向に移動してしまう。ルーラーからガイドラインをアートボード上に引き出しても同様。一定方向に移動してしまう。ガイドラインも異常な太さで、ロックしていない状態で移動ツールを使っての移動ができない。

  9. Visual fragments showing on shape containing concave curve

    MacOs 10.14.6 / Illustrator 25.2.2 + 25.2.1 (Doing it on 2 separate macs.)

    Drawing a simple shape (without a stroke, just fill) containing a concave curve (punching a circle out of a square) results in visual fragments being present. If we drop the .ai into indesign or photoshop it's not present, it also doesn't print out, so it looks like it's just a visual rendering thing.

    If you give the shape an opacity you see further fragments - it looks as if it can't render the curve.

    The glitch does scale at the same rate as the shape. It gets…

  10. Transform Again (Crtl D)

    "Transform Again" often doesn’t work on more complex objects.
