  1. Eyedropper making everything white

    When I select a shape and try to use the eyedropper tool to make it the same color as another shape it turns white. All of my layers are unlocked and visible so I am not sure what it going on.

  4. Colour conversion values have changed?

    Our company logo uses 3 colours. 100% cyan, 100% magenta and 100% yellow.
    Had rgb values for these for years, but have done a conversion of the logo today and the rgb values are different to previously. Why would this be? In illustrator.

  5. カラー設定が勝手に変更される

    カラー設定が勝手に変更されます。オリジナルに設定したカラープロファイルを常に使用しているのですが、こちらが何もしていないのに「Adobe Illustration 5.5をエミュレート」に勝手に変更されます。以前のヴァージョンではこのようなことはなかったので、改善していただきたいです。

    こちらのカラー設定の不具合は、Photoshop を最新バージョン「ver.22.3.1」にアップデートすることで修正されます。
    お手数ですが、Photoshop を「ver.22.3.1」にアップデートをお願いします。
    それでも問題が解決しない場合は、Bridge の設定をリセットしてください。

    よろしくお願いいたします。

  6. Color Theme Window Cropped

    Hello, for whatever reason my color theme window is being cropped, I am able to scale vertical but not horizontal. I tried going back a version, changing user interface and nothing will correct it.

  7. Configuração de Cores ficou horrivel

    Depois a última atualização do illustrator, as configurações de cores ficou toda bgunçada, o programa força a opção "EMULAR ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR 6.0", e quando acesso arquivos que ja tem as cores com seus valores definidos o programa muda as cores por conta própria. Não encontrei uma maneira de desabilitar essa função.

  8. My colors keep getting dull randomly without changing settings

    This has happened repeatedly on different documents. When I select a color, I find that when I look back at the file (without closing the file) in 15-20 minutes, the colors become dull. My settings are in RGB.

  9. Freeform gradient doesn't export to svg

    When using a freeform gradient in Adobe Illustrator (desktop) it does not export to svg. Instead it takes out the gradient and leaves the fill empty.

  10. Mudança no perfil de cores toda vez que o illustrator é aberto ou muda de janela

    Meu illustrator está apresentando constantes bugs no perfil de cores. Toda vez que alterno as janelas de trabalho, ou abro algum arquivo novo, ou inicio ele do zero ele muda a configuração de gerenciamento de cores para uma opção "emular adobe illustrator 6.0" já tentei salvar as configurações de gerenciamento, já tentei utilizar o Bridge pra sincronizar as cores entre os apps e nada funciona.

    Poderiam me ajudar com isso?

  13. Apply gradient across stroke

    I have applied a gradient to my brush tool. I want to change the stroke so that the gradient is across the stroke. I click on that option, but the appearance of my stroke does not change.

  14. Image Washed Out When Uploaded to Illustrator

    Whenever I upload an image, the color gets washed out and is completely different than the original image. Color Settings doesn't change anything, nor does changing the image type before uploading the image.

  15. Colors used in Symbols

    The problem is:
    If you "Select Unused Colors" and delete them, color swatches that are used inside of Symbols are deleted if they're not used elsewhere in the artwork outside of the Symbol. Behind the scenes, those colors are apparently assigned names numerically like “Deleted Global Color 5”. These names are revealed if you choose to Add Selected Colors to the Swatch palette, or Add Used Colors.

    This is bad enough because an element’s official Pantone colors are lost when one tries to tidy up the swatch palette associated with a document. Visually nothing changes in the document, but when…

  16. Illustrator 25.0 color not right

    This is NOT an IDEA it's a bug.
    Colours in the newest version of illustrator are wrong.
    Attached is a screen grab of the file in 25.0 and work uploaded from the same file (previous version) on a web site. We've been through all this before with previous updates… why such shocking inconsistency with a professional product?!

  17. Overprint fill

    Overprint fill, if all layer is chosen sometimes it shows like not all elements are chosen like overprint fill or oposite. It is serios mistkake as can cost a lot of money and lost reputation companies by this bug. This kind of error should be corrected immediately by Adobe. If not all elements are overprint filled maybe it can be a good idea to show like mid terms used? Dear Adobe Team, please answer the bug solution.

  18. Will not change stroke color

    I am trying to trace an object on illustrator but it will not let me change the color of the stroke, it will not even bring up the color swatches in the normal stroke panel for me to click on. I have tried resetting essentials classic, resetting preferences, and changing the view.

  19. Spot colours in gradients are not exported to PDF

    If I have a gradient that includes a spot colour, and then export that file as a PDF, the spot colour is removed from the gradient. This happens no matter what PDF export setting I use.

    See example images attached.

  20. Illustrator automatically changing colors

    When you place image (RGB) into Illustrator it would preserve the color profile. Now it changes it automatically and this seems to be a common problem if you search the internet. Fix it as it makes this program far less useful.
