  1. When I select file>new the pop-up comes up blank.

    This happens in all adobe CC apps, the basic start menu is blank. This is with the newest version of adboe CC. When I scroll the cursor over the blank screen it generates a pointer that would enable me to select the image which is not present. Again, this issue is in illustrator and premier pro. I have unistalled and installed CC twice to fix any install errors. this has not fixed the problems. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

  2. Transformaton Pallet Y issue (bug?)

    When I tab through the transformation pallet to input the X and Y vallues. The Y always changes to something that seems random, always need to fill Y in a second time.

  3. Some files (not all) print in a mirror image

    Random files will print in a mirror image. I have checked settings in my printer and it is not there. This started happening when I updated Illustrator 2 days ago

  4. Send to back

    I am busy working on a big logo project on illustrator, using only one layer. I started filling up the art-boards and space available. However, after only using about a third of the available space the send to back feature wouldn't work. It would register the object as infront of the other object but it wouldn't show the object I placed infront.

    I am a 14 year old student at the International School Eindhoven.

  6. 4k scaling glitch

    When opening Ai on my pc with 4k resolution, a lot of the content on the menu page i off, and I can't resize them to see the rest.
    This is also current in the "new document" setup.
    Very irritating.

  8. Saves pdf as ai, and a lousy update.

    Today as I was trying to save out a pdf Ai would remove the name when changing folders, everytime. Then it saved a pdf with an Ai extension, but will only open as a pdf. Screwing all of my work because it saved the file as an Ai, instead of overwriting my changes. This entire update has been a **** big buggy dis-appointment and appears to have no added value.
    When will software mfg realize that people are tired of updates?

  9. Frozen

    I am using Illustrator CC 2018
    Whenever I am working with type, if I want to change the kerning, the software gives the message in the attached file & completely freezes. I can't exit or do anything. I have to force quit the application in order to get it to work again, which makes me lose a majority of my work and then have to redo.

  12. Random path shown at 315° angle on closed object

    Illustrator CC 22.0.1 This has happened occasionally in the past few versions.
    I'll create an object with the pen tool, and close the object. When I zoom to make modifications on the path I sometimes see a path shoot off to the right at ~315° from one of the anchor points and it looks like the path connecting two anchor points isn't there. As I move it around or zoom out it'll disappear, but if I move back it comes back. Editing the object isn't affected, but it is highly visually distracting. Attached video file illustrates.

  13. Switching between color libraries

    When I am trying to switch between my different color libraries, it will not allow me to switch.

    I click and drag down to the library I want to switch to and nothing happens.

  14. Bizarre Issues with Fonts and Rendering; Creative Cloud

    Subject: Bizarre Issues with Fonts and Rendering; Creative Cloud

    Illustrator 2018 CC 22.0.1
    Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6
    Suitcase Fusion 19.0.4 (6333)

    iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
    3.2 Ghz Intel Core i5
    24GB DDR3

    I’m not sure when this started - possibly when the recent update for Creative Cloud occurred. One day I was unable to take a screenshot without it looking distorted and something strange happened with my screen in the top navigation bar - again all distorted. I had to restart.

    Recently I couldn’t sign into Creative Cloud as it was greyed out. Had to restart.

    Now…

  15. Tools aren't working from toolbox. All of them are now erasers or disabled.

    Version: Adobe Illustrator 22.0.1

    Opened a new project. I only just manage to open my rulers and set up some guides before the line tool refuses to work. Has the icon denoting that it will not work on that layer next to the cursor. Try a different tool and it's the same thing. Try opening a new layer, and it's still the same. So I open a project I was working on yesterday. I'm on the direct selection tool here, but instead of the pointer, I have a circle for a cursor. Curious, I drag it across work. It's in…

  16. Stylize shows only one effect

    Why can't I access all of the effect options? Only "Glowing Edges" is in the drop down.

  17. Sizes and coordinates get distorted in SVG export

    Adobe Illustrator CC on Mac OS
    I composed a graphic in Illustrator to use as a SVG Sprite in CSS. To make sure all my sprites render sharply I aligned my vectors to full pixel coordinates and sizes. Unfortunately those same coordinates end up on some slightly odd positions in the source of the exported SVG.
    I used the "Export as..." function with Decimals set to 2.

  19. No fill no stroke rectangle in Illustrator CC 2018 on a PC has an appearance on it and it shouldn't

    When you try to make and use a no fill no stroke rectangle (in Illustrator CC 2018 on a PC) and attempt to use it to define a pattern piece or a brush (so you can create an overlap) the rectangle doesn't work! If you select it and, from the Appearance panel flyout menu, Reduce to basic appearance then it works. So, clearly some appearance is on the shape which isn't visible but which is causing it to fail. This happens on both my PCs and one of my student's PCs (they originally drew my attention to this). I can't…

  20. Mac Illustrator CC2018 cannot key in % of Cyan as the tint % of the Swatch

    When create a swatch e.g. 20C 80M 0Y 0K,

    I cannot key in 20 (%) as the tint of that swatch.

    Even use my magic mouse scroll one digit to one digit, next to 19 is 21.

    No digit 20.
