  1. Alert to update files in Links Panel keeps coming up - bug

    Every time I move or scale a linked file in my document, the alert comes up that says "Some files are missing or modified in the Links panel. Would you like to update them now?". I have the files in a specific folder and it happens with every file, every time I do anything with the layer in Illustrator v24.01 MacOS Cataline 10.15.1

  3. Objects sliding when switching between outline and preview

    Most of the times I'm working with quite simple graphics (preparing already existing logos and graphics for printing).

    Sometimes when switching from preview to outline view, and back, I notice that some objects aren't where they are supposed to be. In outline view they are at their supposed position, but in preview they are somewhere else. It isn't a big problem when I notice it happening - the problem is when I don't and print it like that. When I notice it, moving the object, pressing unite, or several other actions will make the object pop back to their right…

  4. Rotate Tool causing objects to slightly change size and or slightly shift

    I am using the rotate tool under Object > Transform > Rotate.

    Within the Rotate dialogue box I type in a 60 degree rotation and I click the copy button.

    I then use key command "Command - D" to continue copying the lines around a circle. See screen shots.

    When I zoom in super close to the line to see if it is touching the outside of the circle the copy and pasted lines are either slightly inside or outside the circle.

    Usually I would not care about a minimal inaccuracy like this but I am currently creating parts for…

  5. Illustrator bug -Paste in Place

    i have windows 10, adobe illustrator 2019 23.1
    every time i copy something and try to paste in place, i get a long amount of random actions all by itself, and it ends with the perspective thing in the corner.

  8. Randomly Freezes Ai 24.0.1 - Windows 10 Pro

    I'm using Illustrator 24.0.1 - Randomly freezes, have to shut down using Task Manager. Also sometimes clicking on a shortcut, say to my symbols library, for example, doesn't open illustrator, struggles on some previews. The freezing issue was on the prev release too.

  9. Display not being refreshed, scrolling through Artwork while zoomed in and dragging an object

    When I have zoomed into my artwork and drag an object - for example draw a rectangle or line that reaches the end of the window while dragging, the artboard scrolls, but the image is not refreshed. Only the ruler shows me, that I am scrolling... Even when I stop dragging and release the mousebutton, the image is not fully refreshed. Otherwise: when I drag the Marquee-Tool to the end of the window, scrolling starts and the image gets constantly refreshed while dragging. This is the way I would normally expect it to be, regardless of the the Tool I…

  11. Opening WMF through Windows Command Line creates distortion

    When opening a WMF in the latest 2020 AI via the Windows command line, e.g.

    "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 2020\Support Files\Contents\Windows\Illustrator.exe" 745-2969563.wmf

    It opens the WMF, but it is distorted as in the attached wmf_distorted.png.

    However, if you open a blank document and import it with File->Place, it renders it correctly

    I appreciate any and all help.

  14. Visual bug

    A small visual bug that seemed to pop up in Illustrator 2020 after using the brush tool. There will be a circle that will appear on the artboard at random places depending on where you are zooming or panning around with the spacebar. You can quickly get rid of it by hitting "Ctrl"

  15. Extra Drop down Item

    Win10 Pro 64-bit | AI 2020cc

    Just pointing out the extra "Object" item on the Select drop-down (see attached). It does nothing and does not seem to be causing an issue.

    Also, I've noticed that when saving a file, it takes much longer than the previous version.

    Thanks

  18. Japanese fonts not syncing.

    Japanese fonts don't sync to Illustrator. But they do work fine in other applications like Photoshop.

  19. Zooming

    When in the preset zoom menu, some of the options have commas where they should have decimals. When I click on the 66,67% zoom option it actually zooms in 6667% when it should zoom in 66.67%. Also, in the title of the document, it shows the zoom percentage with a comma instead of a decimal point.
