  1. Pixel Preview is broken on different zoom levels

    In 24.4, on web-based profile, Pixel Preview mode would blur the result for a pixel-perfect image, when Zoom In or Zoom Out commands are used.
    When you disable and enable the mode back, the rasterization gets restored.
    Please see the attached image.
    Also notice how a canvas shifts when you switch modes.

  2. Select > Object > All Text Objects incorrectly selects hidden/locked grouped text

    Windows 10
    Illustrator 24.2.3 (64-bit)

    Select > Object > All Text Objects incorrectly selects hidden/locked grouped text.

    This causes two issues:
    1. hidden/locked groups of text shouldn't be selected at all by this command. (It won't actually select a hidden group of text if the TextFrame(s) inside the group are also explicitly hidden individually).
    2. In a case where everything is unhidden/unlocked, this command selects the GROUP of TextFrames, not the TextFrames directly. This command will actually correctly select TextFrames in a group directly if there is another type of object sharing the group, like a pathItem, for some strange…

  3. Lines form while moving canvas

    Every time I move the canvas down using the hand tool or scrolling up, these weird horizontal lines of color like 1 pixel high drop like some delay previewing or something. It's not easy to explain.

    I don't experience this in any other Adobe program.

  4. Copy/Paste not working. Only pasting text

    I'm having an issue of pasting items not just within the same doc but also in other docs.

    I wanted to past a vector with writing in it onto another artboard, but only the text copies over and it doesn't keep the font settings, it goes to default settings. It also doesn't paste in place as requested it pastes off the artboard in a random place.

    What I wanted was to paste in place on another artboard or another doc, retaining all the information of the copied item. It worked perfectly before but I'm not sure why it's changed.

    I'm…

  5. Place - wedge in image appears and moving images is clunky

    When I place an image, a wedge appears, and it only goes away when I lock, and then unlock the layer. If I start moving the image around again, the wedge appears again.

  6. Scaling Issue in large canvas Illustrator 24.2.1

    When designing in the large canvas mode (anything larger than 227.5416 inches) the scaling does not work properly in the transform panel. For instance, if I start a document off making the canvas 240" x 240" and I draw a rectangle that is 12" x 12" and open the transform panel and enter 200% in the width or height field, it does not scale it up to 200%. It scales it down. However, if I am in the normal canvas mode (227" x 227") the scaling works correctly. This is an issue in Illustrator 24.2.1 using macbook pro with macOS…

  7. Rotate tool

    in Illustrator 24.2 the rotate tool often seems to default back to random numbers now instead of to the last used or something that might make sense (eg 90). eg 93.24

  8. Odd black appearance when selecting two paths in succession

    Mac OS 10.14.6; Illustrator 24.2
    When I select two paths/strokes with the direct selection tool in succession, using the shift key to add the next path, the first path displays as a solid black path and obscures the anchor points. I often need to see those anchor points.

  9. Scaling freeform gradient objects with real-time drawing/editing on.

    When I have real-time drawing turned on, I can't select multiple objects that contain freeform gradients and scale them without losing the appearance of the objects. A single object works, more than one at a time will not. If I turn off real-time in preferences, this resolves the issue.

    Mac os 10.14, Illustrator c 24.2

    Please see videos for demo:

  11. Allow to isolate a compound path when only a part of it is selected

    Since we can't isolate components of compound path and shapes it is strange that Ai won't isolate a whole compound path/shape when you select only a part of it.
    Try this:
    1. Create compounds path/shape — like a torus
    2. Use Direct/Group Selection tool to select only the inner circle if your torus
    3. The 'Isolate Selected Object' button won't appear on the Control panel and the assigned hotkey won't do anything.

    This should be fixed. Ai should allow to isolate a compound path/shape when you select a part of it.
    Also, I think that Ai should be able to…

  13. Ghost element sneaks in my groups

    Hi!!

    I encounter a bug in Illustrator. You will find the description below but also a video that explains a lot better what I am trying to say.
    1) OS: Windows
    Version: 10.0
    System Architecture: x64
    Illustrator version: 24.1.2

    2) When I just try to select a group from the active window.
    3) I expect to only select element from this group
    4) Somehow there is a ghost element that I can see alone when I unselect my group. This ghost stays there and mess up my resizing then..

  15. Can't Select behind objects

    The following instructions do not work. I need this function...

    Select behind objects

    In Illustrator, you can select objects that lie underneath other objects using Ctrl+click (Windows) or Command+click (Mac OS). The pointer changes to Select Behind on the first Ctrl+click (Windows) or Command+click (Mac OS). On subsequent usage of Ctrl+click (Windows) or Command+click (Mac OS), the selection iterates through the objects directly underneath the pointer position.

  16. Random bug of unselected object frame, from locked layer, visible even though not selected

    Only way to remove the frame is to shut the file down and then reopen. Unable to take a screen shot as the frame disappears when taking it.

  18. The document "annoyingbug.ai" is currently getting saved. Try again after the process is complete.

    "The document "annoyingbug.ai" is currently getting saved. Try again after the process is complete." This pops up when you use save as while there is a save currently going on.

    This dialog box was removed when closing the document in 24.1.1. Can we also get it removed when using save as?

    Would be nice if the save as started once the current save is done like in previous versions.

    Thanks,
    Josh

  19. Illustrator Window Disappears When Changing Screen Focus

    When I switch focus from my center screen where illustrator 2020 is, on my mac mini running Catalina 10.15.3 on three LG monitors, to the screen to my left, Illustrator vanishes.

    It's not minimized, it's just gone, I have to click on the icon in the taskbar to pull it back up. It looks like it's there in Mission Control, but if I click on it, it just goes back to being invisible/unclickable.

    This is a pain when I'm cross referencing. If I click the icon to get it back, it'll stay there if I don't click into it, and…

  20. embedded images cause longs delays in opening file illustrator 24.0.2

    When opening some files with embedded images, there are very long delays before the file finally opens.

    I have had success when I flatten the embedded image, it then opens fine.
