  1. With multiple projects open, can only view one tab

    In new AI2019, if I have multiple tabs open, only the tab originally opened is usable unless I open the other tabs in a new window.

    Need More Info  ·  Anish Kumar responded

    Hi Joel,

    Thanks for reporting the issue. I tried reproducing this on my computer but couldn’t reach to your conclusion. Can you please share the steps and a screen shot if possible with us. Is this happening every time or in some specific scenario. Also please let me know on which OS are you working.

  2. Drag-n-drop across documents to locked layer warning

    Please see the animation.

    I have two documents, one with current layer is locked.
    When I try to drag my artwork from other document (in this locked layer, about which I very often don't remember), AI should have said something about 'You are attempting to paste or drag into one or more layers that are locked or hidden. Do you want to unlock and show all approriate layers?'...

    But in my case it does not.
    I remember seeing it from time to time, but often it stops appearing.
    I have nothing as result, no warning, no message, nothing.
    And it's…

  3. 楕円シェイプを含む選択範囲に対して回転をかけると変形パネルの高さの数値がおかしくなる

    楕円シェイプとその他の図形が同時に選択されている状態で回転をかけると変形パネルのHが異常な数値となる。

    環境
    macOS10.15.6 Illustrator ver.25.2.3

    再現手順:
    1. 楕円シェイプとその他の図形を描き全てを選択する。
    2. 回転ツール又は変形パネル等を利用して選択範囲を任意の角度に回転する。
    3. 変形パネル上のHの数値が選択範囲の正常な高さを示さない。

    期待する結果
    変形パネルの高さの項目が選択範囲の高さを正常に表示する。

    実際の結果
    変形パネルの高さの項目が選択範囲の高さを正常に拾わない。

    とりあえずの対処法ですが、シェイプを拡張することにより通常のpathItemとすると意図した数値が得られるようになります。

  4. can't highlight dimensions

    Since update today, cannot click and drag across the numbers in the dimension boxes (properties). Can only double click to highlight. It's bugged at best.

  5. New version of Illustrator Smart Guides do not work

    Ever since the last update, and now also with the brand new version (as of 6/17/20), the Smart Guides have stopped working properly, almost non-existent.

  6. App unresponsive due to tour window

    MacOS Mojave, Late 2013 iMac

    This is probably a rare event, but it should never happen and if this "feature" behaved consistently with MacOS, it wouldn't ever happen:

    The other day I launched Illustrator, and immediately pushed the window down and out of the way so I could access multiple files on the desktop. I didn't realize this was the first time I'd launched Illustrator since an update, so a tour window had popped up, but since I had shoved the entire workspace window down right away, I couldn't see the tour window.

    What happened was that I attempted to…

  7. Change Scale tool behavior - revert back to scaling proportionately, shift & drag

    macOs Sierra 10.12.6

    Illustrator 23.0.1 - Scale tool doesn't work the same as it's been for years!! Ugh!

    Please revert to the legacy behavior of scaling shapes, images and text proportionately by using the scale tool + holding shift key and drag to enlarge or reduce size of shape proportionately. This way has been burned in my brain for many, many, many years. My fingers move faster than I can think, and now my logos turn out wonky unless I scale it the long way, by opening up the scale tool and typing in percentages!! No thanks.

    For now, how…

  8. Illustrator 2019 - anchors are now invisible unless selected?

    I installed the newest AI update (v23) and started testing some of the new features when I noticed that the anchor points that I rely on for my work have vanished. I've attached screen snips to show the difference between AI 2018 and 2019.

    That little magenta X shows up in earlier versions but now it's invisible. It's still present and can be selected if I know where it is but that defeats the purpose, in my opinion. There must be some way to turn these back on, right?

    I've tried toggling many settings in the menu and the closest…

  9. Ctrl+arrows in Package dialogue

    Ctrl+arrows stop at underscores in Save-Export-other 'system' dialogues, but don't in native dialogues. We heavy rely on underscores in our naming convention, so please make it work as it should be.

  10. Mesh objects don't get selected when only edge is marqueed

    All paths in AI get selected when you draw a marque over their edge (with no points inside selection). Segment got selected. It is fine.

    But mesh objects are immune to edge marqueing, because there is no 'segment' thing for a mesh. WHY? Why don't you make the same thing as it's done for paths? Just select seam between mesh points and allow to move both points adjacent when seam is 'selected'.

    I put this into Bugs, because I consider this a bug rather than request. Like 'Selecting segments in mesh is broken all these years since introduction and everybody…

  11. Can't drag layers in layers palette

  13. Dropdown for stroke width in Appearance says 'mm' when units are 'px'

    AI 22.0.2
    All units are set to 'px'.

  15. Create New Sublayer button

    I have a group that I want to make a sublayer instead.

    I click it in the Layers panel and try to click Create New Sublayer button.
    It’s grayed out.

    OK, think I, I must target it then, right? I do it.
    The button is still grayed out.

    I select other objects, in Layers or on canvas.
    Still grayed out.

    Then I click a layer name.
    Surprise! Now and ONLY now the button is active... what?
    What else can I mean when having selected anything else inside of a layer?

    Fine, I target my group, select a layer without targeting…

  16. Canvas goes white and blue when selecting object.

    Whenever I select anything on the canvas, the entire canvas goes full white, and alternates between blue and white. Clicking anywhere on the canvas returns to the previous view, but it makes it impossible to make adjustments. I'm using Illustrator 25.0.1, on a 2019 16" MacBook Pro running macOS Big Sur. I tied reverting to 25.0.0 but the same problem occurred.

  17. Export for screens: in sRGB, embedding colorsync profile, compression for PNG

    I see a difference in options between photoshop and illustrator. For Illustrator, it would make sense to export for screens and force a conversion to sRGB –even when your drawing is still in CMYK. I notice that Illustrator doesn't change colormode, while Photoshop does (when exporting, PS converts to the working RGB or sRGB if you make that choice).
    Besides that, I think it is very important to add compression to PNG files. And why not embed colorsyncprofiles in PNG files? It's a benefit when profiles are embedded because webbrowsers will show the image as similar.

  19. All toolbars gone - Illustrator CC 2019

    As soon as I open the Illustrator today, every toolbar was lost. Even if I click the workspace presets, it doesn't do anything. I already returned all the lost tool bars manually but when I opened Ai, they're gone again. Please fix this. Thank you.

  20. Window resize handle broken

    Whenever I try to resize a document window now by clicking the lower right corner, it snaps to a larger size that fills the width of my screen and goes off the bottom beyond what my cursor can reach. I have to click the resize button at the top to undo. The only way I can now resize any window correctly is by dragging out from the sides and bottom individually. This is very time consumiing. Just fix it to how it used to work in every other previous version. It shouldn't take extra time with every new 'feature' you…
