  1. CC 2020 AI and InDesign Crashing and Freezing

    Having major issues with both Illustrator and InDesign 2020.

    For Illustrator, if I double click an AI file in a finder window it crashes 100% of the time on launch, which in turn deletes all recent docs from AI's start up menu. Things are a bit more stable when launching the app and then opening a file, but still seems to easily crash when doing a simple task such as electing the font dropdown menu (not even selecting a font).

    InDesign is more troublesome. The program will frequently freeze even after opening a document that has a link that has…

  2. Variable printing - ignoring a blank cell in the data library

    Variable printing – an amazing utility within Illustrator which is probably often underutilized!

    Unfortunately, if the .csv file containing your data contains a blank cell you'll run into issues. Fixing this or creating a workaround so that we can import those blank cells as just a space would be HUGE!

    Printing mailing labels and being able to ignore a second line for an address would no longer be out of the realm of possibilities! And that's just the tip of the iceberg!

    Let's get behind this – Help me vote this to the top!

  3. In Adobe Illustrator Constrain Width and Height proportions doesnt work

    I don't know why but 'Constrain Width and Height proportions doesn't work
    in 'Transform' or 'Properties' panel

    Whenever I constrain and move the number up, it creates a weird number
    for example, if the shape is 60,60 and when I write down 70 on the height the width becomes 69.256 something like this

    so frustrating!!!!!!!!!

  4. Activating fonts in Illustrator takes to long

    The process of activating fonts in illustrator is taking way too long. Is there a way to make the process faster?

  5. Illustrator crashes when using Image Trace

    Illustrator has been continually crashing when I use the Image Trace tool. I have been using it on the "Sketched Art" setting with an image file that is 20in x 13in @ 300dpi. Also, I have noticed that when I start to manipulate the advanced options, this is when it crashes most often.

    I am using Illustrator CC on Mojave OS.

  6. Place Tiff with layer comps doesn't retain selected comps on save and reopen

    Placing layered Tiffs with Layer Comps into Illustrator doesn't maintain the reference to those layer comps when reopening the file.

    Steps:
    1. Make PSD with layer comps and save as layered Tiff.
    2. Place layered Tiff into Illustrator with "Show Layer Options" selected.
    3. From "Tiff options" dialogue select "Layer Comps <dropdown select layer comp A>"
    4. Also, select "When updating link: <dropdown select 'Keep layer visibility overrides'>"
    4. Repeat steps 2, 3 and 4 selecting a different layer comp
    5. Save and close file
    6. Reopen file. Layer comps on our (multiple) systems revert to all showing the "Last…

  7. Trim view not persistent when leaving isolation mode

    When viewing a document in Trim View, and then isolating an object/group, leaving the Isolation Mode resets the view mode to the default, instead of returning or remaining in Trim View.

  8. How about not releasing Illustrator chock full of bugs?

    I'd like to choose a category, but it's multiple at this point. The main ones...


    • Bounding box randomly disappears. I turn it on. It randomly turns off.

    • I select text and go to change factors and the changes affect other text that's not even selected.

    • Photoshop completely changed the sizing to no longer require shift to preserve aspect ratio, which is unnecessary and fixing the things not broken, but if you're gonna do it in one app, do it in all. Kinda ridiculous to jump between programs and not have same functionality.

    • If I go from dual monitors to single,…

  9. No more center handles to free transform lines!

    I have Illustrator CC v20.
    When clicking objects with the selection tool, normally the transform handles do appear to free transform the object.
    Now, when clicking lines the center handles does not appear (only handles at the corners), so it's impossible to horizontally or vertically scale (extend) the line!

  10. Illustriator does not always open files (Windows 10)

    Problem:
    Illustriator does not always open files (Windows 10)

    Don't works:
    Illustrator is not open > Windows Explorer > right click on file > open file with > Illustrator opens first file, each further file is opened only with: "Drag and Drop", with open menu from Illustrator or when closing Illustrator

    Always works:
    Open Illustrator (empty) > Windows Explorer > right click on File > Open File with > Illustrator opens first file and each subsequent file

    Is this a bug or what do I have to do to make "Open file with" always work in Windows Explorer?

  11. Fix the Dice Symbol please

    You have included a symbol in the 3-d Symbols library of two dice. These dice are incorrect in that any opposite sides of a die need to add to seven. In you symbol you can clearly see a 3 and a 4 on the top die (On a real die these would HAVE to be on opposite sides of the cube) and on the lower die you can see a 6 and a 1, again these would have to be on the opposite sides.

  12. Rotate tool dialogue box won't appear

    After selecting the rotate tool, rotate dialogue box won't appear.

    a dialogue box will appear only if I double click on the rotate tool but then I am not able to move the anchor point to the center of the object.

  13. Can't open files from Windows File Explorer

    Files will no longer open from Windows File Explorer. Double clicking on file names does not work, dragging them into Illustrator does not work. Only the menu FILE > OPEN works. Please fix this.

  14. Default Template Folder

    Version 23.0 no longer opens template files from the default "Cool Extras" folder. Instead it navigates to the last folder saved. Please revert this back as it is a huge waste of time creating new documents now.

    This also occurs for scripts, but I use less frequently and have dealt with it. Unacceptable for template files however.

  15. paste remembers layers doesn't work if original layer is hidden

    Steps:
    create object on layer.
    Copy object.
    Hide layer
    create new layer
    paste object with new layer selected.

    It will warn you that the layer you're attempting to paste onto is hidden. But....no it's not. I have the "paste remembers layers" checkbox turned off.

    This is either a bug, or someone should stick close to someone who actually understands user expectations.

  16. Illustrator 22.1 crashes on quit. (Mac OS X 10.11.6 on MacBook Pro i7 Late 2011)

    The latest Update to Version 22.1 won't work properly on my computer. Everytime I finish work and quit Illustrator, the programm crashes and freezes on exit screen, endlessly showing the rotating, colored ball (mouse pointer).
    I have to force quit, no other way to get around.
    So I switched back to Version 22.01 - everything working fine and smooth again.

  17. Rasterizing artwork Overprints being discarded

    When you rasterize art that has overprints the overprints are being discarded.
    Illustrator CC2018 22.1
    See screenshots attached. The picture showing dragon scales are displayed as Vector art still and Overprint preview on. Once rasterized the scales disappear.

    I am closing the ticket due to lack of response.
    Please get in touch on any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html .
    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.

    Warm Regards,

  20. Shortcuts not working, update cc 2018

    I was using CC fine the other day, and now I've updated to the latest version (2018) none of my shortcuts are working, only the space bar works for moving around - very frustrating since it takes away my whole workflow and adds loads of time to creating something very simple!
