  2. Edit Artboards/Convert a box to artboards Illustrator 18

    Why cant Illustrator 18 snap to a box when converting to artboards? Also if you create a box copy it into your library.... then bring it back into illustrator and try to create artboards from it, you get a weird error stating its got a clipping mask or a rotation?

  3. Extrude and bevel

    Trying to use 3d/extrude and bevel on a mbp 15 and the computer freezes until I cancel. Is it possible the window is showing beyond my screen? (had it connected to a monitor earlier, but restarted 3 times!)

  5. Illustrator crashing after latest update

    After updating Ai in the desktop app the program crashed on me several times during an afternoon. I worked with the pattern maker tool in one file and manualy in another file. After restarting both Ai and my iMac there is no way to open the files. I get a sign that says "Unable to open drawing". That happens only to the files created after updating. I tried saving as pdf and open the pdf, not working. I tried to open the files on another computer, the same happens. I then placed the pdf in Indesign, saved as a new…

  6. Illustrator 22.1 doesn't store version information in the metadata

    In previous versions of Illustrator I could view which version of Illustrator a file was saved as, and the version that created it, in 'Get info' in the Mac finder. For example: 'Version: Saved As v.15 Created by v.22.0.1'. This info now isn't saved with the file as shown on the attached screenshots. For us this was a very useful for checking what version a file had been saved for.

  7. Opening Files Problem

    Not sure what this message means. It started last week.
    I would try to open a file, this warning box would pop up, I would press ok and half of my job is missing. Then i would restart illustrator and try it again. Sometimes it takes me 5 times restarting illustrator to get the files to open correctly.

  9. jittery mouse in illustrator glitch when photoshop is also open

    When photoshop is not the active application, but is open in the background, tell it to sleep )or whatever the correct jargon is), so that the selection tool or direct selection tool is not annoyingly jumpy/jittery in illustrator.

    Mac OS 10.13.3 AI 22.1 PS 19.1.2

  17. Snap to Grid functionality reversed

    Running AI 22.1 on OSX 10.12.6

    When drawing or moving objects, they behave as if 'Snap to Grid' is checked. It isn't. If I check 'Snap to Grid', the snapping behaviour stops.

  19. Illustrator documents open up as skewed black and gray triangles

    When I open a file in illustrator, all that shows up are black and gray skewed lines and triangles. I have uninstalled and re-installed illustrator but has not fixed the problem. The image cannot be seen whatsoever. Attached file shows what SHOULD be the silhouette of the state of Illinois. This is what I get instead:

  20. Illustrator Crashes when editing graphs

    Illustrator CC 2018 v22.1 - I've created a number of different bar graphs. When I click on one to edit the graph "Type...", it crashes each and every time. What's going on? I can still edit and update the data without it crashing. I tried clearing/deleting my preferences but that didn't change anything.

    Declined  ·  Raghuveer responded

    Update from Tamiko:

    Anyways I kind of remedied the situation myself by re-drawing the graph that was causing the crashing from scratch. It seems to have stopped the crashing from happening and I’m now able to edit they graph type without problem.

    Thanks for the update Tamiko.
