  1. Pucker bug

    The pucker creates white triangles at the bottom of the artwork. It seems to export to jpg as it is supposed to, but the vector artwork displays incorrectly.

  3. Drop Shadow modal will not load, for new or existing shadows, crashes Illustrator CC 23.0.2

    Drop Shadow menu will not load upon trying to apply a new drop shadow, or edit existing drop shadows. Software drops to 0% CPU, and software will not respond to any inputs. requiring me to close Illustrator via Task Manager.

  4. "Twist" effect doesn't work on horizontal or vertical lines

    I'm trying to to "twist" a single line () using the Effects panel, but the line only shows twisting when the effect is applied and then rotated diagonally.

  5. Symbols | Mapping stroke to 3D-Model will distort stroke

    Hi together,

    recently I came accross a mapping bug with a stroke ( width 0.2 Pt ) applied to a waving flag shape used in a symbol that was mapped to a 3D model.

    All details can be found at Adobe Illustrator User Forum here:
    Symbols | Mapping stroke to 3D-Model will distort stroke

    https://forums.adobe.com/message/10989571#10989571

    Workarounds like expanding the stroke and working with an extra path element stacked behind the flag shape did not help.

    The only workaround that will help is rendering the elements to an image and implement the placed and not linked image…

  6. Pathfinder Merge actually Dividing, leaving cut out objects behind

    This might be easier to read on the forums where the images are inline with the explanation, but I copy pasted everything here anyway. Here's the thread.

    https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2601397

    This has been a thorn in my side for so long I can no longer ignore it. I don't know when it happened but at some point Illustrator's Merge tool started dividing objects instead of merging them, and leaves behind cut up versions of objects that are behind the visible objects.

  8. Legacy blur lost when pasting into a new document.

    An object with a legacy blur loses it's setting when copying and pasting into a new document. The blur is still listed in appearance, but there is no value and effectively no blur.

  9. Alignment Tool is Off

    I'm using the alignment tool to center a logo onto it's artboard. Both the logo and the artboard are 500px by 500px, but when I use the align tool the logo is off by a couple px. It's barely noticeable until I export to png, then I can see that the circle is cut off slightly.

    Any help?

  11. 3D Extrude and Bevel - Rough color transitions

    The 3D extrude and bevel doesn't seem to handle transitions between curved surfaces and straight surfaces well. There's a very rough color transition in the resulting 3D render where one would expect a smooth transition. See attached for an example.

  16. Extrude and bevel

    Trying to use 3d/extrude and bevel on a mbp 15 and the computer freezes until I cancel. Is it possible the window is showing beyond my screen? (had it connected to a monitor earlier, but restarted 3 times!)

  19. No fill no stroke rectangle in Illustrator CC 2018 on a PC has an appearance on it and it shouldn't

    When you try to make and use a no fill no stroke rectangle (in Illustrator CC 2018 on a PC) and attempt to use it to define a pattern piece or a brush (so you can create an overlap) the rectangle doesn't work! If you select it and, from the Appearance panel flyout menu, Reduce to basic appearance then it works. So, clearly some appearance is on the shape which isn't visible but which is causing it to fail. This happens on both my PCs and one of my student's PCs (they originally drew my attention to this). I can't…

  20. Illustrator crashes when using the appearance panel or styles and effects.

    Illustrator CC 2018 crashes with the blue screen of death especially when I am working on the appearance panel or effects drop down menu. Illustrator simply freezes, promoting that is not responding and in 5-10 seconds the system crashes. Please help! Need to meet deadlines.
