  1. Style Menu in Warp Options panel not opening.

    CC2018 in OSX.11

    When I click on OBJECT/ENVELOPE DISTORT/MAKE WITH WARP when an object is selected I cannot open the STYLE menu in the WARP OPTIONS box. I click on the menu and only ARC is available, menu does not open.

  2. Multiple Bugs

    Alrighty, there are a few different things going wrong here. The version of Illustrator I'm using is CS3 on Windows. One of my issues is that when I'm using the selection tool, it won't select an object if I simply click; if I want to move an object or simply select it to re-scale it, I have to click and drag my mouse over it. This makes my life difficult, as it's a serious pain to select objects, and it's extremely annoying.
    Another issue I'm experiencing is difficulty duplicating objects. Alt-Drag isn't working on objects; if I want to duplicate…

  3. path view

    Version: Illustrator CC 2018 22.0 (Standard)
    Illustrator does not show a path view. When I select Path View, the object is no longer selectable and no path view is displayed.
    It's the same with every file, both simple and brand new.
    It didn't work in the previous version either.
    In older versions it worked without any problems.

  4. Custom color library have varied and inconsistent behaviors

    When creating a custom color library, for example, using PANTONE colors with custom CMYK values, Illustrator imports them in to the swatches pallet inconsistently. Double clicking adds colors one way, clicking on "add to swatches" adds color another way. And, some PANTONE colors are added differently than how they were imported in to the custom color library. For example: I created a custom CMYK build for PANTONE 115 C. I imported to my custom color library then double click to add to swatches. It adds the color but somehow converts the color to what looks like a Lab to CMYK…

  7. Font Filter Scroll

    You guys are amazing. I can set my mouse over the font selection box, and without opening the drop down menu, I can scroll through fonts.

    The bug is that after setting my font filter, I continue to scroll through an unfiltered list of fonts, unless I open the drop down menu.

  8. Anchor Point Tool can create shape so huge, not enough memory to Undo

    I was using the Anchor Point Tool to add handles to an anchor point (using mouse pointer to click and drag handles into existence), and suddenly, the shape stroke line shot off the artboard into virtual oblivion (apparently a gigantic loop causing a massively huge shape). When I tried to Undo (Ctrl-Z) a message box popped up saying "The operation cannot complete because there isn't enough memory (RAM) available."

    I f'ing lost several hours of work because I had to close Illustrator and not save ('cuz I was afraid it would reload into the same condition, thus destroying many [MANY]…

  9. Colors Display As Black and Blue

    An AI file opens on all our computers except one, with 5 different colors, blue, green, and orange. The one exception opens the file but it renders as black and blue. In all the color settings areas it shows the correct colors but the rendering still doesn't render correctly no matter what you change.

  10. Illustrator crashes when using the appearance panel or styles and effects.

    Illustrator CC 2018 crashes with the blue screen of death especially when I am working on the appearance panel or effects drop down menu. Illustrator simply freezes, promoting that is not responding and in 5-10 seconds the system crashes. Please help! Need to meet deadlines.

  11. When maximizing Illustrator it extends beyond the screen borders.

    I have a vertical dual monitor setup. At one time it was a horizontal setup, but that was in prior versions before version 22.0.1 64 Bit. Anytime I try to maximize on my 3840x2160 laptop monitor it will expand beyond the screen border. I have attached a screenshot. Only started happening since the last update. I have tried changing settings for my screens and within illustrator but it still doesn't seem to fix the issue. Can anyone help?

    Thanks,
    Aydia

  12. type/color changes having difficulty taking

    v.22.0.1 64-bit on win 10
    never had these issues before today, but basically some changes are selectively not taking, are reverting back to previous. 2 examples:


    1. changed type font from Clyburn to Hummingbird (from Tk), change takes, saved work, then went to move type and reverts to Clyburn. so copied layer with Hummingbird, locked it, hid it, then made change, still switched back. closed/rebooted Illustrator, was back in Clyburn. however, made change and it finally took, however could not change between Hummingbird Regular and Bold.


    2. working with ellipses in a logo in CMYK. placed ellipse with gradient stroke. copied layer,…

  13. When I try to save a file, I am told my file is a "read only" copy

    I use Illustrator version 20.0.0 (2015.3)

    I have not experienced this problem until very recently.

    After I have saved a file, when I make changes to it that I want to save, I am told I cannot, as it is a read-only copy.

    I have already checked the properties of my file, and it is NOT "read-only."

  14. CS 3 begins launching, but never posts menu bar in High Sierra

    Having gone through the download process on the assumption that the license was the problem, I find that the newly installed AI CS3 still has the symptom it had before. That is it seems to start, but never displays the menu bar. I can also start it by double-clicking a .ai file. The graphic displays, but no menu bar or other windows.

  18. x y coordinates

    when making a file exact art size. Trying to snap to my
    X=0
    Y=0

    the Transform pallet says i'm at 0 & 0 but clearly i am not and once i click off everything then re-select everything again i can make it 0&0. I am in a pre-press production setting and this slows down my whole process. Also the Align to Artboard selection is a huge problem.

  19. Eyedropper wants to convert everything to text color?

    I have several elements that need to be colored the same way. After coloring the first one, I'm trying to color pick it to color the others... only as soon as I hover over the previously colored object a T appears next to the eyedropper and it colors the object black, regardless of the color I click on with the tool.

    There is NO text on the page!

    I cannot find anything that addresses this problem, and I'm wasting a lot of time trying to figure it out.

  20. Creative Cloud has potential ports leak (Activity Monitor)

    When starting Creative Cloud, and Viewing Activity Monitor in macOS the ports show an normal average number around 600. Yet the Creative Cloud ports don't stop there every 15 seconds they increase by 1-3 on avg. I have had them reach 10,000 and that when it starts causing problems with my MacBook performance. if I let it would just keep climbing endlessly. this need to be addressed asap.
