  1. "Place copy" of RGB CC library item in CMYK doc changes document color setting to RGB

    Illustrator 21.1.0
    1. Created text or other items in an RGB AI doc.
    2. Add to CC library via drag and drop.
    3. Open CMYK AI doc
    4. Right click the RGB item and select "Place Copy" (looks like that's cut off on the GIF — probably recorded with too few frames).

    Expected result: RGB items converted to CMYK

    Actual result: CMYK doc converted to RGB

  3. Right click on libraries

    Right clicking on libraries and panel disappears. I am trying to add a color swatch and the right click menu is gone, and panel disappears.

  4. Libraries Panel Disappears and cannot be accessed once reopened when you use Ctrl + [ after selecting a swatch or asset from it.

    When editing objects colors using swatches, or pulling in an item from the library, if you immediately use Ctrl+[ to change the layer your selection is on, it closes the library panel. When reopened, none of the items in the library appear in the panel, and you cannot save changes to any assets you have currently open

  5. Library Drop Down Fails (Creative Cloud not specific to Illustrator)

    Drop down fails using Illustrator (or PS) and Creative Cloud Libraries.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhPEVZpS0k4

    Fix is to open Library window wider, or right-click.

    I am closing the ticket due to lack of response.
    Please get in touch with us at sharewithai@adobe.com or any of the other support channels – helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Please give a reference to this post so that we can identify you.
    Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

  6. Editing Library-Item Name prompts "Move Object" pop up.

    After the most recent update to Adobe Illustrator (v. 23.0) on Windows 64-bit system. Every time I name/rename an object added to my Library panel, on hitting 'Enter/Return' to save the change and leave the edit state, the 'Move Object' pop-up appears (and I have to close it to return to what I was doing.

    As I've been adding a series of icons to my Adobe CC Library, this is a very tedious process to close this pop-up every. single. time.

    Please fix. Thank you :)

  7. Editing a small CC Library object breaks the thumbnail

    Editing small CC Library items leads to imminent damage to it's thumbnail.

    1 Create an object in Illustrator (for testing purpose make it 4pt x 4pt)
    2 Add it to cc library (noth that thumbnail is generated properly)
    3 Edit the cc lib. object in illustrator (anything will do just add a rectangle anywhere on the canvas)
    4 Save/close the CC lib object

    Expected: the thumbnail is updated and represents the content of the CC item
    Observed: the thumbnail is ridiculously small/not readable

    Check the screenshots and video attached.

  8. Place Options in CC Libraries

    I'm having an issue with Illustrator 2018 (22.0.1) in regards to place a copy of a CC Library item in a document. This release has ruined my workflow!

    I use the Paste Remembers Layers option in the Layers panel options a lot. In all other Illustrator CC releases, If Paste Remembers Layers was checked on, the pasted CC Library item would adhere to the Paste Remembers Layers option. Furthermore, while it's nice sometimes to have a loaded cursor of multiple library items, it can be cumbersome more often than not.

    I don't know if these are bugs or intentional changes,…

  10. Libraries stuck in "Add Multiple Assets"

    macOS Mojave 10.14.3

    This happens to me daily. My entire CC library will grey out and is stuck with the "add multiple assets" icon. I can kind of see what's underneath, but in order to get rid of this, I have to completely quit illustrator and reopen.

  11. Text entry error when naming Adobe CC library items

    First of all, great to see CC libraries getting some love with the addition of groups. I'd love to see further refinements, as I use CC libraries for all projects.

    One issue I'm having with V23.01 on a Mac (Mojave V10.14.3) is with naming CC library items I've just dragged into the Libraries panel. The behavior I'd expect to see would be for the new item's name field to get keyboard focus, allowing me to immediately type in the name of the item I'd just added.

    Currently, the item gets a default name (e.g. "Artwork 1," "Artwork 2," etc.). If…

  12. Illustrator Library Place Copy a Vector Broken

    Illustrator 23.0.0.1 (64 bit) - Windows.

    I have created some custom icons. Saved them as SVG.
    Opened up these SVGs and then added to a Library.
    On click place copy on a new art board. The vector is totally corrupt. (see attachment.)
    The icons are correctly designed and all lines expanded.
    If I place link they appear fine. (obviously I then cannot edit)
    If I click edit they appear fine. (Using edit to open then cut and paste at the moment)

  13. Cannot scale item directly after placing...

    When I place either a file or library item by dragging onto the artboard, I cannot scale that item (via double-click on scale tool). It does not apply the transformation. I have to repeat the transformation in order to get it to apply. This does not happen however if I place an item through the file menu. See attached video.

  14. Pixels out of alignment when copied from library

    I'm currently rebuilding over 1,500 icons which need to be pixel-perfect and have certain badges that we're using a library for.

    The icons are being made as symbols so we can edit the symbol and then on artboards, it's resized to the required icons we need.

    Illustrator won't allow a linked graphic from the library, so I have to place a copy. As per image, when placing a link, the pixels line up as per design. When placing a copy, it moves the design around and ***** things up, making it not perfect. When I either place a copy or…

  16. Linked assets in CC Libraries render "file not readable"

    Having assets linked in CC Libraries renders the master AI file unreadable on another machine, despite being signed in on the same account. If I open the file on the original computer and collect it to a local folder, the file opens. This defeats the purpose of the Library.

  17. Symbols and CC Libraries

    So there is a bug with symbols being used in CC Libraries that I came across. If you place a symbol on something and apply a type of appearance effect, like a warp, you are unable to place or open up that file again in the CC Library. You will get an error that says "Can't open the illustration".

  18. initializing Creative Cloud Libraries

    Something went wrong. Libraries frequently states "Something went wrong initializing Creative Cloud Libraries".

    I have to frequently restart creative cloud (CRTL+ALT+R).

    I will be working on a PDF(with cloud working), save exit PDF, open PDF only to find i cannot access my cloud files. Super annoying!

    ADOBE STOCK LIBRARY WINDOW IS CRASHING WHEN TRYING TO GROUP ELEMENTS TOGETHER. I HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS ON MANY OCCASIONS AND ON DIFFERENT COMPUTERS AND WAS HOPING THIS WOULD BE SOLVED IN THE LATEST RELEASE.
