  2. Text becomes impossible to edit after several minutes of having the program open

    Working on macOS Mojave 10.14.5 and Illustrator 23.0.4.

    After working in the program for a few minutes, transform controls no longer appear around text boxes when selected (show transform controls does not fix the issue). Text attributes are then buggy when applied (tracking will not apply to selected word, can't change font). Shortly after, I can no longer select text boxes at all.

    I'm a graphic designer and this issue is hurting my productivity greatly. Please provide a solution!

  3. The typing I-beam pointer is missing sometimes.

    The cursor is missing on my student's PC even though they have installed the latest version of Illustrator CC. What is happening?

  4. Weird font rendering problem

    I have a client-provided font (IND-Hoboken Sans) that is rendering W (capital w) strangely. The apex should be square/flat, but Adobe apps (I used Illustrator as my test, but I've seen the same problem in Photoshop as well) render the 1st & 3rd apex on an angle (even more bizarrely, different angles). Other applications (Font Book, TextEdit, MS Word, Keynote) render the character square as expected.

    Most bizarrely, Acrobat does NOT have this problem & renders the character as the system does (ie. as expected). As a test, I created an Illustrator file with the same word as both live…

  5. Reverse punctuation in Hebrew

    You have raised the text-orientation option in the Illustrator. The punctuation marks are always reversed and there is no way to fix it

  6. Type tool broken - insists on being anything but normal type

    Unable to select the regular type tool. I get type on a path. This is a deal breaking flaw.

  7. Type on a Path Preview

    When trying to type on a path around a circle, the preview shows the letters rotating abnormally, but when converting the text to outlines or printing the type, it corrects itself. Would be fine, but I can't design what I need without the preview first.

  8. Cant see entire font list in gyphs tab?

    When I open a New Document and want to view glyphs font list with Entire Fonts selected the lower drop-down doesn't change?! The only way I can get it working is by selecting one of the Adobe templates then go to Gylphs tab and then the font drop-down menu works. Odd, then after that all of my new documents work in the Gylphs tab that didn't work previously?! Once I close Illustrator I'm back to square one again. I have exactly the same set up as 2 colleagues I work with and theirs work from the off.
    Is it a…

  11. type editing

    When editing type, I will attempt to change its pt size or leading and no changes are made. When I attempt to undo those changes it jumps back about 10 steps. This happens at least once a day. I run the most recent macOS and CC.

  12. Clicking Area-type tool adds forced line breaks

    When I click the right-side handle to switch from Area-type tool to Point-type tool, illustrator adds forced line breaks to the end of each line. Annoying because when I go back to area-type tool to reflow the text, none of the text reflows.

  14. Ver 23.03 Adding text deletes new layer

    When I create a new layer, and select the Type tool and create a new character or type element, AI automatically deletes my new layer and adds the text to a locked layer that I previously created.

  15. Type size not working after scaling text with transform/scale

    After selecting a line of type with the selection tool, and then scaling it with right click, transform / scale / 'percentage' , I can then no longer assign different type sizes in pixels or points to the text using the text tool.

  19. Cannot paste text from Chrome to Illustrator

    I use Wrike within Google Chrome for workflow and am given copy to use in various graphics. Since updating to 23.0.3 Illustrator does not paste from Wrike/Chrome. When I restart illustrator it sometimes goes back to normal but then randomly it will stop working later on
