  1. CC Libraries import yields progress indicator for thumbnail

    With the most recent release of Illustrator (23.1.1) on a Mac running Catalina 10.15 Beta, any time I drag an item into the Libraries panel, a thumbnail fails to appear (instead I get a persistent animated progress indicator). I'm able to see the correct thumbnail of the imported item in other Adobe apps (Photoshop and InDesign), as well as online (Libraries --> View on Website). Only after I restart Illustrator do they appear.

  2. TIFF images as assets in CC Libraries are always placed as PNG images on the artboard


    1. Affected: Illustrator CC all versions that are working with CC Libraries.
      Tested with Illustrator CC 2019 version 23.0.3 on Windows 10. Illustrator versions on Mac OS X are also reported.


    2. Steps to reproduce the issue:
      Do a new CC Library.
      Add TIFF images saved from PhotoShop CC 2019 to the new library.
      Two options how you can do this that I know of:
      A. Drag the files from your file system to the open and empty library.
      B. Use Adobe Bridge CC 2019 to drag files to the open library.


    3. Expected result:
      If I want to use an image TIFF…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Illustrator graphics from the Library are distorting when I "Option Click and Drag"

    First off this is only happening to me in Illustrator 2018. I just did an update over the weekend, and have been facing a number of bugs ever since. But the one I still havent figured out is this one. In my CC libraries, my team and I utilize it for vector icons. When I drag an icon into my file, it looks correct, but I cannot edit the colors. So when I "Option click and drag", it gives me the option to edit the icon, but it is distorting it by squishing it vertically. Has anyone else encountered this…

  7. 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.

  8. 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".

  9. Libraries Panel broken

    Although the Libraries panel is open, I cannot select another library, it's stuck on the same one. When I pull up the menu to choose another and click on it, nothing changes. Been like this for a few weeks now.

  10. Flickering Cursor

    The cursor constantly flickers after I opened Illustrator 3 months ago, and I cannot type anything anywhere in my laptop. Before that, I could use this software normally. Really annoying, please fix it.

  11. Creative Cloud library assets make Illustrator Crash

    MACO 0S MOJAVE
    version 10.14.6
    Illlustrator CC 2019 and Illustrator CC2020

    I'm using a lot the creative cloud Libraries in Illustrator.
    Many times, when I create an asset in the library by dragging and dropping it into a group, the asset crashes Illustrator when I try to open it to modify it.

  13. CC Library Character Styles Set Leading to .01pt

    Character Style works fine in Character styles panel, but using Character Styles saved in a CC Library, results in leading being set to .01pt.

    This is with a style saved from document to library, or created directly in CC library.

  14. "Not Compatible"

    I have a MacBook Pro, El Capitan 2015. The Adobe Suite is now saying all of my apps are "Not Compatible". I tried restarting my computer and the Adobe system multiple times. I was on the phone for over 3 hours with Adobe, no help, just said my computer is too old.

  15. Text fields not immediately active when renaming library items

    Renaming library items takes several steps to ensure you are in the text field and any keyboard commands will not trigger tools/menu items.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Click on an object,
    2. Drag to Library panel—often takes several times as noted in the video
    (the libraries panel and new documents from libraries is flawed and not as efficient as Adobe Max presentations allude to, but that's another post)
    3. After item successfully copied to Libraries, right click it in the libraries panel and click Rename
    4. CLICK AGAIN ON THE TEXT FIELD OF THE LIBRARY ITEM
    If you do not…

  19. Can't preview new graphic assets in Libraries within Illustrator

    When I add a new graphic asset to an existing Library, I cannot get a preview of it until I restart the program. Instead, I get the animated square indicating that the preview is being generated, but it never refreshes. I often have multiple CC programs open, and the graphic is always immediately reviewable in Photoshop and InDesign, so this is limited to Illustrator in my experience.

    I am running Mac OS 10.15.1
    Illustrator 23.1.1
