  1. Cannot press TAB to select character weight

    On the Properties panel, pressing the TAB key when you are in the fonts dropdown jumps directly to the font size, NOT the font weight as it should.

    In the Character panel the behaviour is correct.

  2. Properties panel auto select field contents

    Illustrator v24.0
    Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6

    Since the Properties panel was introduced in Illustrator, it won't allow selecting an item, then click once on a field name, such as W for the width field, and automatically select the contents of the field so you can then just enter a new value or use the arrow keys to change the value.

    It works fine in the Control bar and other panels, just not in Properties.
    It works in the Properties panels of InDesign and Photoshop, as well.
    Was hoping it would be fixed in Illustrator 2020, but still not.

  3. Properties Panel won't stay open

    When I have the navigator and the properties panel on the right side on top of each other, the properties panel will close if I expand the navigator and vice versa. This has not been a problem in other versions.

  4. X and Y in values in the transform don’t reflect the position of 2x identical boxes, -they are in obviously different position on alert boar

    X and Y in values in the transform don’t reflect the position of 2x identical boxes, -they are in obviously different position on the art board...the reading is incorrect. It’s up to me to manually manage the alignment. I tried using ALIGN, The align option is useless. I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR AGES. I always trusted the the NUMBERS, BUT NOT LATELY. The X and Y readings in transform are NOT TO BE TRUSTED. Hence great stress. Please FIX the BUG. LOST MY FAITH ..., I wish I could go Back to OLD BUT STABE CS6...CS6, CS6*. …

  6. Renaming Character Styles Does Not Trigger Content Change

    Renaming a character style does not trigger content change.

    Thus, the asterisk does not appear above the file name (indicating content change), File/Save or CMD/CTRL-S are ineffective, and if one closes and re-opens the file the old names are still there.

    Have not checked Paragraph styles, or styles in other Adobe apps, but assume this bug would present there as well.

  7. Extended properties panel inconsistent with InDesign

    Not so much a bug, perhaps a feature request but yet more evidence of the various dev teams going off in their own directions - like the Photoshop's inexplicable rationale for switch the default behaviour of proportional scaling ... ahem, I digress.

    Please would you consider implementing the properties panel behaviour from InDesign? By this I am specifically referring to the extension of the properties panel behaviour when selecting the 'more options/fewer options' ellipses.

    The InDesign implementation expands the existing sub-panel to include the additional options which are not normally visible.

    The Illustrator implementation is less elegant by simply repeating…

  9. Opacity Issues when Selecting Whole Layer

    In the Layers panel, when you click the Select All circle to the side of the layer, all of the objects on that layer become selected. If you then go to the Properties panel and adjust the opacity of those objects, they appear to become more transparent yet you cannot see through them. ALSO, once you go back to selecting individual objects, or even manually selecting multiple objects, the opacity changes are not indicated in the Properties panel. Rather, they say 100%, even if you've adjusted the opacity by selecting all in the layers panel. I've attached a video for…

  10. Cannot update links from links panel

    Cannot update links by clicking "update" icon in links panel or by going to panel menu > Update Links. They do nothing. I have to wait until AI shows the "Some links need updating..." alert and then confirm to update or I have to close/open the file.

    What the heck happened in the latest update(s)? Feels like all of the panels are super busted.

  12. Object size change?

    Now, the transformation panel reflects the size of a shape plus the thickness of the outline if there is one.
    For example, a rectangle of 100x100 with an outline (in the middle) of 1 displays a size of 101x101, 102x102 if the outline is external and 100x100 if the outline is internal.
    It's a very confusing change! The previous behavior was much more talkative.
    I understand that this reflects the actual size, including the outline thickness, but this should be an option. I did not see myself 3 decimal digits when I want a rectangle of 100x100! :)

  13. Illustrator CC 2019 v23.0 Divide tool not working

    I'm running on a iMac Pro (2017) Mojave OS 10.14 and using Illustrator CC 2019 v23.0. I've tried using the divide tool via the Pathfinder panel as well as the new Properties Panel and neither will work. Typically it would divide the two patterns top and bottom and now it just leaves the patterns as is without dividing. I also have used the guides to divide a pattern and that is not working either.

  14. panel stuck under menubar

    When Ai is displayed on a secondary monitor, if that second monitor is off and than on again, all properties panel moved back to the primary display, some of them being stuck under the Mac OS menubar--where it becomes impossible to move the panels again. Fixes include choosing a fresh unused workspace, but repeating the sequence damages that workspace. Also workspaces saved while using a second monitor don't honor that layout when selected again.
    Please fix! Thank you.

  15. Line thickness changes automatically?

    When i want to choose the thickness for a line for example 0.25 mm / 0,25 mm AI automatically turns it into 25 mm.
    In Denmark we use " , " and in USA they use " . " for decimals. I'm pretty sure.
    I have Windows 10 whit english UI but danish system settings and Danish keyboard. And all my Adobe products in English or US. I'm not sure.

  16. Palettes/Panels are broken all over!

    This is not just in AI. It's in PS, and ID as well. Can't make selections in pull down menus. It keeps reverting back to the default. Can't enter values in fields and use tab to move to the next field. Awfully annoying! What I want to know is what was the QC department doing before releasing this terrible package?

  17. Illustrator has bugs to support variable font with 3 attributes

    This is a sample font which to demo the variable font has 3 attributes (weight/height/Optical Size).

    If use Illustrator's Character panel to adjust the height attributes, the weight attributes would no work.
