  1. 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.

    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.

  2. Text Formatting Bug

    Adobe Illustrator 22.1 (64-bit)

    Typing text within a single text box that requires different font styles formatting.

    While editing the text within the text box, in the last version (Illustrator 21), I could change up the font style of a font family and continue typing.

    But, in the updated version, if I change the font style (i.e. roman, bold, italic) I have to click back into the text box to continue typing. In addition, the change in formatting does not apply once clicked back into said text box. This requires me to type out whatever needs to be typed out…

  3. Artboard Tool button crashes Illustrator

    I'm trying to put this in the "Illustrator Bugs" category, but the button I have to click says "Post idea". Apologies if this is in the wrong area.

    Every time I click the artboard button Illustrator crashes.

    I'm using a 2017 iMac
    Illustrator version 22.0.1

    I've been having the same problem since the last time I updated Illustrator (several months). Doing research in the trouble shooting forum leads me to believe this has been a problem since October 2017.

    No one had posted a solution in the forum.

    I spent a while on Adobe's website searching for the appropriate phone…

  4. Illustrator CC 22.1 destroyed my file

    22.1 (released today March 15, 2018) destroyed a complex drawing, exhibiting very odd drawing mistakes leading me to quit. Upon reopening the file was corrupted and a single object remained. I suggest NOT updating until this is solved.

  5. Mysterious Points moving

    I have the latest version of Adobe Illustrator. I've lately been creating a character and I was putting the layer on hidden and a thing appeared. It was like I used the direct selection tool and dragged a point across my screen. It happens about every 6-7 times I hit the button and it also happens on a different layer on a different part of the body.

    Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, I am closing the ticket.
    Please get in touch with us at sharewithai@adobe.com or any of the other support channels if you encounter any issues.

  6. Special characters and Data merge

    New data merge feature does not import special characters like trademark or inch marks. Followed steps provided on https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/data-driven-graphics-templates-variables.html

    Attached is an example package artwork and a csv for data merge. I need the inch marks and TM to pull in as part of the text.

    I have used scripts in the past to generate artwork from data which has worked to pull in any character found here http://hypertransitory.com/blog/2015/04/26/illustrator-variable-data/

    Windows 10 64-bit

    Will also enter a separate suggestion, but there needs to be an option to name each data set based on data file used so that file…

  10. Placing/updating AI file links in INDD after update takes a very very very long time.

    After updating AI and INDD, placing AI files into INDD is taking a very long time. I made an update to an AI file that was placed into an existing INDD files that contains 13 placed AI files. I only updated a few of the linked AI files. Prior to the AI and INDD update, updating these placed links took a few seconds each max. Now, just to update the two links takes about 2 minutes.

    This MAY be an AI bug, but I don't know how make that determination as I updated bothat the same time.

  11. Mac is frozen when moving objects around

    Hi, I'm using Illustrator CC on a Macbook (High Sierra). It very often freezes completely and nothing helps, but hard reset. It's very annoying, as this happens 10-15 times when making a Figure for a publication. It happens when moving simple objects around. I tried to reinstall and to purge the preferences, nothing really helps. Can someone help?
    THanks

  14. Using tab to advance to next dialog box field only works occasionally

    Editing text in latest Illustrator (immediately after update)... can't tab between font-size and leading fields - I can get it to work momentarily by closing the box and trying again, but the big returns the next time I try to edit text.

  15. resaving bug

    When Illustrator was updated to CC2018, I began having a recurring (and very annoying) issue: whenever I try to resave an open file, Illustrator crashes. Sometimes it will also crash if I do too many other actions in a row, though I can't say for sure what triggers that (if it is something consistent). I'm running it on a 2017 iMac with High Sierra. I report this every time it happens.

  16. Illustrator can't read it's own files properly

    Looses bitmap figure embedded in .ai file, reports the bitmap is missing when opening. While other software opens the file just right. Including Adobe Acrobat, Gmail preview, apple finder preview and Affinity Designer.

    I made a file using Adobe illustrator, this file contains two jpg images. When I save the file and open it using illustrator on two different computers, a dialoge appears complaining the jpgs are missing and offer to replace them.
    Oddly other software packages read the same file just fine, INCLUDING the allegedly missing jpg images, and in good quality.

    I can provide the file if you…

  19. Installation Failure

    When I downloaded Adobe on my Asus Computer, it will load Illustrator and then after a small time period. I will receive the message saying that there was an installation failure. It will also say something such as "Error Code P204".
