  1. Hue

    Setting a hue to 90 degrees while in sRGB will convert the hue to 88 degrees after you click OK. This same behavior does not occur in Photoshop.

  4. Color blend control panel

    Trying to change a fill in a preexisting color blend. Control panel only allows shifting the current blend, not adding or changing color. Any time the color pallet is selected, the blend control box disappears. Adobe is adding more features is cool, but taking away the basic features we've had for years is uncool.

  8. GPU performance color

    Illustrator CC 2019
    Mojave 10.14.1

    Bright RGB red/pink appearing correctly in swatch, but washed out when filling a shape with same colour on artboard.

    Only way I've found to fix this is to turn off GPU performance and the colour then appears bright and correct, but with GPU off live drawing is very laggy.

    Any fix for this??

  9. Freeform gradients color stops were altered after crash

    Running Mac OS High Sierra and Illustrator CC2019.
    While editing one shape with a freeform gradient, Illustrator crashed. Document had been saved prior to the edits. When opening the recovered file, all objects using that freeform gradient had all their color stops altered. Instead of dark brown, med brown and yellow, color stops were changed to use Registration, an unnamed brown and an unnamed pale color. None of those colors matched what had been used prior to the crash. Had to manually go back and redo the freeform gradient.
    This feature is going to be really useful but you have…

  10. Default Black

    My default black (000000) is registering as a dark grey (1A1818). I have updated the software and tried CMD+drag the "black" and white style in Graphic Styles to the default location in an effort to reset. Nothing is working; every time I need black (which is often) I have to go in and manually change the color to 000000.

  12. CMYK Spectrum on color tab looks broken

    On the latest Illustrator update the CMYK Spectrum looks broken on the color tab. At first I thought it was a display problem however comparing other Adobe apps and even in illustrator color picker there is nothing wrong.

  15. Can not open a saved .ase color book

    With the update to Illustrator CC 2019, I now can not open the .ase color book that we've been using for 3 years.

    Please fix this as it is an incredibly inconvenient bug to encounter

  18. colour themes/swatches/window never work

    colour themes/swatches/window never work. Every time I try to do anything within the colour theme window I'm either asked to sign in when already signed in, or I try to create a theme and it 'saves' but doesn't actually do so, and afterward the theme window goes blank and I have to restart illustrator.

    And now instead of doing work I'm here writing this and researching alternatives to adobe products. The sign in thing is driving me nuts.

  19. Picking a colour from the Library, randomly opens the colour picker

    I've got a shared library with assets and colours to use in the work we're doing. When I have an object selected and I pick the colour from the library, it's 50/50 if the colour picker dialog box is going to open or not. I don't want it to open, I've clicked the colour I want to use, so why does it pop up and get in the way? Really annoying!!

  20. Colour code 000000 (CMYK)

    I select 000000 for a colour (in CMYK mode) to create a nice black. This is C91 M79 Y62 K97. However, when I go back, it will still be 000000 but C00 M00 Y00 K100 - which isn't the same? It seems to change at random?

    This is on a PC using Windows.
