  1. CC2019 Offset Path stuck in Inches

    Offset Path seems to be stuck in Inches in 23.0. I have the preferences all set to "points", yet when I try to use Offset Path, it's still displaying the offset amount in inches. This didn't happen until the upgrade to 23.0.

  2. Find and Change Font

    I'm getting an error that I can't find/change font because there is text on a locked layer. Well here's a bunch of screen shots that show not a single layer is locked. So why doesn't Adobe Fix this?

  4. Fonts problem

    After upgraded from version 2018 to 2019, the Chinese fonts won't preview properly. Now all I see are squares. It was fine in AI 2018.

  5. Crash Reporter has UX issues

    Crash Repoert text field does not allow cursor movement by arrow keys or pos1, end,...
    Email format validation is wrong, as it does not allow hyphens.
    Check email format on exiting the field, not on submit.

    Just build a good way to report bugs with a good UX.

  7. Custom scripts from CC2108 not working in CC2019

    The big power of Illustrator is its ability to run scripts. I built my workflow around some important scripts. Upgrading to 2019 made them non-functional.

    It would be great, if there was a way to update scripts as well.

  8. Image Trace over a white square on color mode with 2 colors crashes Illustrator

    This is a bug that happens on all versions of Illustrator, even CC 2019, and regardless of OS.
    It's very specific, but here are the steps:
    Create a new document. Color Mode doesn't matter.
    Draw a square with only a white fill.
    Rasterize it. Resolution and color mode doesn't matter.
    Run Image Trace on it
    In the Image Trace settings, set the Mode to Color and the number of colors set to 2.
    Illustrator will crash.
    Try it out! The expected result is probably just the same as if the number of colors was set to 3 or anything else…

  9. QTWebEngine Page on MAC

    Hi,

    I have a plugin created for Adobe Illustrator CC 2017/2018.
    In the plugin I have a panel which acts as a container for a QTWebEngine page.
    The page consist of several text boxes where I can enter text.
    I can perform basic operations like cut/copy/paste/selection on windows but I am unable to perform these actions on Mac (Os El Capitan).
    What I observed is that on windows clipboard will allow saving text on pressing Ctrl+C/X/V but on MAC whenever I press Command+C/X/V on Illustrator, it is trying to invoke Edit menu for Cut Copy Paste and the control goes…

  11. Panels load on different screens

    Hello!

    My operating System is 64 bit Windows 10 and I have the latest 2018 CC version of Illustrator.

    The setup: I am working on 2 4K Monitors. 1 is a 32" LG and the other is the 24" Wacom Cintiq Pro. (However, this happens regardless of what type of monitor you have). I don't spread my workflow between monitors like some people do,. I prefer to have browsing on one and my Illustrator workspace on the other. However, since I do work with a Ciintiq I very often swap my workspace from my Cintiq back to my monitor. Here…

  12. High Sierra 10.13.6, AI 22.1 Scrolling bar and File bar not showing. Also all files will close without warning

    Picture of missing scroll and file bar below. Makes it almost impossible to work on projects.

    All files will close without warning, while I am working on them.

  13. Scale Strokes only seems possible, but is greyed out.

    Scale dialog: Make it possible to scale Strokes only (Deactivate Transform Objects - which should be possible, but is always greyed out)

  14. Illustrator and taskbar auto-hide

    I use the auto-hide feature for my taskbar on my dual-monitor Windows machine (specs below), but for some reason in Illustrator ONLY, I have to click out of Illustrator to access my taskbar. This does not happen in Ps, Ae or Pr
    So, if I'm working in Illustrator I have my main panel on my left monitor and my panes on the right. I have to click on my desktop below my panes to access my taskbar. (see screen shot)

  15. Problem merging dates from CSV into graph

    When merging data into an Illustrator file to create a batch of bar graphs based on a group of CSV files, numerical dates merge into the graph data as numbers with decimals instead of dates. A 6/30/16 date merges into Illustrator as 6.00 and 12/31/16 becomes 12.00, so every date with the same month appears the same. This also messes up the graph, leaving the chart with two categories instead of one of the data columns being assigned to the x-axis.

    This includes when dates are formatted (in Excel) as text, and when the dates include hyphens or periods instead…

  17. Keyboard Increments in preferences doesn't work.

    I set my Keyboard Increment to .0139 and anchor points move correctly. Then I change it to .00139, which has alway worked in the past, it now jumps about 10X the correct distance. I restarted. No change. I uninstalled, then reinstalled. No change. I restarted my computer. No change. I can't work with it like this. How do I get this fixed?
