  5. import png from Photoshop or Capto results in an invisible link

    Illustrator CC 22.1, OSX 10.13.6

    When importing a .png or .jpeg from photoshop or as a screen capture from Capto, the link appears in the links panel, but is invisible on the art board or the paste board. If you click go to link in the links panel, it takes you an extremity on the pasteboard, but the link is not visible and cannot be selected.

    Expected result, to see the .png on the art board. When searching for link on pasteboard, that it would be visible.

    Actual result, link is not visible anywhere, but appears in link palette.

  6. Artboard

    When copying one art board and saving PDF. The PDF will sometimes save a extra page automatically. Can easily be fixed in adobe acrobat by deleting the extra copied pages but wish I didn't have to do that in first place.

  8. PDF file with Opacity Mask using a 1-Bit tiff when Exporting PNG with Anti-Aliasing TURNED OFF does not render correctly.

    BUG: When exporting a PDF file as a PNG containing an Opacity Mask made with a 1-Bit tif file AND Anti-Alias turned off in the PNG Export options does not render correctly. The opacity mask is not WYSIWYG in the exported PNG file. The PNG file contains part of the mask information (from left to right).

    The same issue occurs when opening the same PDF file in Adobe Photoshop. If the Anti-aliasing is turned off the resulting PNG is incorrect (although the thumbnail in the PDF import screen IS correct.

    If Anti-aliasing is turned ON in either scenario the resulting…

  10. Legacy "save as" from CC2018 does not work

    "Save as" to legacy CS6 , CS5, etc. from CC2018 does not work - although it looks like it does. Trying to open the file in CS6 will get an error that the file was created in a newer version. To confirm the file has not been converted to CS6 (or other legacy version), check the file window. It will display no version number and right-clicking on the file and choosing "get info" will also show no version number.

    To work around the bug, launch CS2017 and "save as" to the desired legacy version. You will now see a version…

  12. Devanagari scripts

    The use of devanagari scripts in most Creative Suite is really laborious. It took me a long time before finding the way to have a correct display of simple copy/paste from Word or any other source of hindi or sanskrit texts by adjusting, in TWO différents dialog boxes the appropriate settings. I finally found the way to do it but, as I wanted to use a composition in a webpage, I exported my composition as SVG, and the result was just terrible: no word was correctly spelled and I had to retype all of them in Dreamweaver (which has a…

  13. create new

    "Create new..." does not work on Win 10 latest CC 2018 update, new subscription, first time using Illustrator. I've seen Illy used by many people up close, it's not me - it's the Create New feature, it's broken from the File > menu, the full screen app convenience tile menu, and also CTRL+N. None of it progresses past the initial "what new file setup do you want". And yes, I pressed "Create" not cancel.

    Very disappointed, I just paid for a year of this, greeeaaat.

  14. Adobe Illustrator did not save and included my link files. Those files were not embedded.

    Usually, to prevents lost files, I will save and checked the "include link files". However, now this feature isnt working. I tried several times but the files in my Ai hasnt been embedded. It is very annoying because I will need to embed all the files manually. Please FIX this

  16. "Save for Web (Legacy)" defaults to some arbitrary folder (on Win10)

    Whenever I do a "Save for Web (Legacy)" the first time in an Illustrator session, it defaults to some arbitrary location that has nothing to do with... well, anything. I think it might have been the location I used the first time I issued the command under Illustrator 22.0, but that was months ago, so I can't say for sure.

    If I choose a different directory and save my images/slices there, that's becomes the new default directory for the remainder of that Illustrator session. But if I exit and restart Illustrator, it's back to defaulting to a location that makes…

  17. SVG href property exports incorrectly

    When illustrator exports SVGs, it sometimes will use the href property to reference something like an embedded image or gradient from the <defs>, which is reasonable. Docs for the href property here:

    https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Attribute/href

    However, safari does not support href yet, and will completely drop the reference, making SVGs widely render incorrectly in safari, up to the latest version. In order to make them work properly, the deprecated xlink:href property must also be used, docs below:

    https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Attribute/xlink:href

    All bases can be covered by including both the href and xlink:href properties, until all modern browsers have fully adopted the SVG2 spec.

  18. Text not read when opening EMF file

    I am running Adobe Illustrator CC version 22.1 on Windows. When I open the attached .emf file, the text elements in the file are omitted. You can see what the file should look like by opening it in MS Paint. The expected behavior is for Illustrator to import all elements, including the text.

  20. excel

    Trying to copy/paste a graph from Excel to Illustrator (or open a PDF from excel). Sometimes it pastes fine as vector shapes, but other times a complex graph paste as pixelated images(the lines still paste as vector lines though). For example instead of pasting a cluster of circles, it pastes a cluster of pixelated circle shapes with a mask....Why doesn't it just paste as vector circle shapes as usual? Is the graph too complex? What are my options?
