  1. variables (data set) batch action

    I have an action that:

    1. selects "Next Data Set"
    2. Runs a recolour script to colour the artwork based on data set values
    3. Then "save as copy"

    When it is run once it works as expected and saves the current data set as a copy PDF and advances to the next data set. When the action is run as a Batch Action the action goes nuts! It advances multiple data sets values and saves as a completely different data set name. This wouldn't really be an issue if I had 10 or 20 data sets, but I have over 1000 -…

  2. Drawing with percentage opacity fills: Percentage will not stay selected for each new element.

    AI CC 2020 (Apple Mac): I have noticed a bug - a serious one that stops me from working. If I make a shape with a fill of (for example) 30% I would expect the next shape to retain that percentage of fill - which it always has done (I'm a very experienced user of Illustrator and use this feature all the time). Now I find that each new shape reverts to 100% fill which is totally unworkable as I draw by building up layer upon layer of opacity fills. The advisor online checked with his versions of AI CC…

  3. expanding pie chart

    I found that you can expand a pie chart by making the chart, then taking the scissors tool and clicking on the points, then you can edit each slice!

  5. Flashing screen

    Since downloading the new 2020 Illustrator, even after the updates i get the same problem. While working on any document the screen flashes in and out very rapidly when moving the mouse in illustrator. It doesn't slow the software down but is very annoying when trying to set up a job and the screen is constantly flashing. All other adobe products like indesign, photoshop and acrobat work fine. Just illustrator i'm having the issue.

  6. command Z, Blocks Reediting an object

    If I edit an object or shape like adding or deleting a point and do not like it, I usually undo it with command Z. Once I use command Z the shape I was editing is blocked from being re-edited.
    I sometimes have to copy the shape and paste in order for me to add the points in different location again on the shape.
    Is there any reason why this is happening?

  8. Measurements given as points

    I have been working with Units set to General: Centimeters, Stroke: Centimeters, Type: Points and Grid: every 1 cm, 5 subdivisions. Suddenly this morning all measurements are in Points. I cannot work with this. The ruler is in points: useless. I have reset preferences and restarted several times.

  9. text selection bug still happening with 24.03

    When you click on text to move it around on the artboard it always selects what is BEHIND the text box only, unless you click 1 pixel below text baseline exactly. I click on the text inside of the box to move it and it keeps moving my background. I have to zoom in 150% to see baseline and move text. This has REALLY slowed down my process.
    I'm on a MacOS 10.14.6

  10. Illustrator 2020 gradient bug

    I am using Mac Os Catalina 10.15.2 with Illustrator 2020. When I close a file that contains an element with a circular gradient fill applied and re-open the file, the colour gradient disappears and appears black. I have tried saving as ai, eps and pdf. all 3 files still produce a black element on reopening.

  11. overprint preview not working properly

    This is new to me as of today. This is a process I have done hundreds of times in the past with no issue. I have not received or updated anything over the past week other than any Adobe updates I receive via the Creative Cloud.

    What I do is create a separate layer in a file to set up a kiss cut for cutting vinyl. I use a spot colour for this - same spot colour I have been using since day one.

    I apply the spot colour to the text or object - in this case a box…

  13. Help > Illustrator Help goes to marketing page

    Selecting Illustrator Help from the Help menu no longer links to Illustrator information and search links, but goes to a generic CC marketing page. From there, there is no clear path, and it requires at least two more clicks, in addition to having to figure out which are the appropriate links to follow. This is not helpful, and takes time away from productive work.

  14. Linked images are broken when open a AI file on a different computer

    I work with a AI file and some placed image as links.
    If I try to open that file on a different computer i shows all the images links as broken. I need to fix each path evrytime.

  15. Unwanted emails from Adobe

    Why am I getting spammed twice a day with 20-60 illustrator bug messages.? My company quarantines these unwanted messages. I get nothing out of them and I cannot turn them off.

  18. ***** / skew / tilt angle disappear

    when I transform an object the rotation angle remains visible in the transformation panel while that the inclination angle disappears ... why? it's very frustrating ...
    In InDesign this is possible and correct .... not in illustrator.

    It is not possible to reset or reproduce the angle of inclination on another object.

  19. Duel Screen Issue

    Both Ps and Ai malfunction when using a second monitor. Problem: when either application is open and I shuts off, unplugs 2nd monitor or closed laptop with 2nd monitor still plugged in, the next time I am in either app the files I have open are frozen. Or when I open a new file there is no art board shown. The only resolve is to restart the program.

  20. selection bug

    As the title describes, this is a bug with the selection tool. I've had this bug several times today, everytime it does I have to restart Illustrator which is madness.

    feel free to check the files that I've provided, and please FIX THE BUGS BEFORE ADDING MORE FEATURE TO ILLUSTRATOR. the features are useless unless Illustrator improve the reliability to the users.
