  3. layer

    The layers panel does not work. You cannot turn layer visibility on or off. Even enable / disable the panel itself. It is necessary to correct this error!

  5. "Apply value and keep text box active" using key command Shift + Return does not work on Mac OS

    when you change something in the Character panel... for example the tracking... and you want to keep trying new values without selecting the field every time you used to be able to hit Shift + Return and it would automatically highlight the field while applying the current value... this made it easy to continue to try new amounts. PLEASE FIX THIS!!! Thanks

  6. dot instead of comma

    Illustrator cc 2018. In the new property panel. At least in the spanish version, the line width of 0,5 mm appears as 0.5 and when selected it creates a line of 5 mm.

  7. Opacity in Properties Panel

    If there is a blending effect applied in the opacity settings the properties panel does not reflect the blending mode. You have to click on the appearance panel or opacity to see if one is applied. Took me a few minutes to trouble shoot why an element was not visible. It would be nice if buried settings would show up if selected in the properties panel since it was designed to make the interface more simple.

  8. Properties Panel Transform section uniform scaling UI bug [ Ai CC 2018 ]

    Hi,

    The Ai I'm running has this strange bug where upon making a new document the Transform section under the Properties Panel will have the 'Maintain W & H' lock activated; however the icon does not indicate as such. It will show the function as in active.

    So every time I were to scale an item with no intention of keeping it's initial proportions, the function will scale it proportionately.

    Another thing I've noticed is that if I enter a new value for either W or H then it will take that new value and add it to the initial…

  9. constraint not working properly

    Im using adobe illustrator cc 24.1.2 on Windows 10 v 1903, The constraint function in the properties tab is not working properly for me. When i press the constraint button, the height and width proportion should stay the same when i change one number, but it changes them to be slightly off. If i make a circle 500 x 500, constrain the dimensions, and change the height to 250, it changes the width to 249.499. It doesnt matter what numbers i use, it will always change the other dimension to be slightly off what it should be

  12. Properties Resizing

    Resizing artwork using PROPERTIES does not do it unless you hit tab or click on page. It acts fine resizing art from TRANSFORM dialog box. Please adjust PROPERTIES to work like TRANSFORM. Thanks. I'm using change width holding Command and hitting enter.

  13. Bug: Properties Window - Transform Width & Height Increments Changed

    When adjusting W: or H: values using arrow keys or middle mouse button scroll I expect to be able to increment by .125 inch values which has been the default for my time using AI. Now I increment by 1 inch by default, CTRL allows increments by .5 inches, and Shift increments by 8 inches! All of these are off by 8X from previous defaults.

    I noticed this with the previous update.

    Currently configuration:
    AI 24.1.1 (64 bit),
    WIndows 10 Home V 1909 OS Build 18363.720

  14. Adobe Illustrator point location does not move when changing Y coordinates value by a hundredth.

    Adobe Illustrator 2020 24.0.1 on Windows 10 x64 Version 10.0.18362

    After giving an object a stroke of 5 and attempting to move a point in the bottom left corner, I discovered that it was not being consistent when being changed in the hundredths. When changing it, it appears to be the same as whatever position it was before. I expected the Y value 483.61 to put the location of the point somewhere in between the coordinates 483.6 and 483.611, but this is not the case.

  15. Character Information in Properties Panel not appearing

    When I click on any text the Character information in the properties panel immediately disappears. The character information is only visible before I click with the Text tool. This is making it REALLY difficult to work with text.

  18. Improper Dimension with Stroke (width and Height) - Illustrator 2019

    Everytime I apply stroke to the object, I adds it to the overall height and width. Which makes my workflow worst. It shouldn't add the stroke not until I expand the apperance/object. Or maybe if you guys could add an option/button/switch to weather we want Ai to add the stroke to the overall dimension or not.Would really appreciate your immediate response.

    Thanks.

  19. Illustrator 24.0.1 ignoring me when I enter a new dimension for my closed path with stroke

    Hi all, I'm cross-posting here from the Adobe Community forums as suggested by someone who was able to reproduce this issue. I'm running Illustrator 24.0.1 on my 2015 Macbook Pro with MacOS Catalina 10.15.1. I actually just updated to Illustrator 24.0.1 to see if this problem would go away, but it still persists.

    I'm currently trying to increase the height dimension of my closed path in the Transform panel by +0.0001 inch, or .03 points (trying to transform the height from 23.157 pt to 23.16 pt, to match two other closed paths). However, whenever I click the object, input the…

  20. scrollbar in the wrong place within panel

    The scrollbar should always hug the right edge of panel independent of panel width. However it does not. Looks messy. Please fix!
