  1. Saved swatches from previous version doesn't look the same

    I've made a custom palette in an earlier version of Illustrator. Now importing these swatches into new documents the swatches and codes are vastly different - both cmyk and rgb swatches has been altered.

    On reference picture - left side colors are original swatch colors, right side is the imported swatches. Also attaching the correct color codes.

    What happened? How do I fix this?

  2. COLOURS CHANGING IN PATTENS/ BRUSHES AND SYMBOLS WHEN COPY AND PASTING WITHIN AND BETWEEN DOCUMENTS

    I am copying cads with certain fills, brushes or symbols. When pasted back into the same document or into another document the colours are changing completely.

  3. "Proof Setup" and "Proof Colors" Greyed Out

    The "Proof Setup" and "Proof Colors" options in the View drop down menu have been greyed out and no matter how many times I restart my computer or the application, nothing changes. My version of Illustrator is fully up to date, v. 25.2.3

  4. Grayscale Swatches interpreted as CMYK

    In an RGB color mode, a created Grayscale Swatch does not survive. When copying and pasting an object colored with such a swatch results in a warning. I think this is because the swatch is seen as a CMYK-swatch ny the clipboard and not recognized as created in an RGB situation.

  5. Inconsistent color

    With the new CC update, I can't calibrate colour across apps using Color Settings in Bridge. This started happening often on the previous release, but I was able to fix it by resetting this in Bridge. Now, it doesn't work. See attached – same Pantone colour (50% of Pantone Bridge 7500) in InDesign and Illustrator. The InDesign is accurate; Illustrator is not. Nothing I do seems to help. I may revert to older Bridge and Photoshop until you sort this out.

  6. Color BUG with Black 100K

    there is a problem with the color black, but only in this special workflow as follows:

    open a new document in RGB > convert it or change the color mode to CMYK > define a new color with 0,0,0,100 > draw a form > reselect the form and check the color ... the 100K black has changed to a 4-channel black.

    if you start right away with a new CMYK-document, everything is fine and you will always get you 0,0,0,100-black-color, but whenever you start with a RGB-document the whole black-color-thing is bugged forever! even if you save the "from rgb…

    Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

  8. Swatch filtering

    Hello,
    In previous versions of Illustrator, entering a Pantone number would highlight the swatch. Now in Illustrator 2021, it filters out every other swatch so I can't "browse" for adjacent colors.

    I don't even know what setting to look for.

    What's up with that?

    Thank you,

    Lynda

  9. RGB colors appear differently in identical file setup

    I have created color codes in one document and brought them into another (with the exact same RGB setup) and the color breakdowns change to look the same. This is a problem because if I am sharing the RGB breakdowns with others, some of the colors appear much duller. I have noticed that something changes when an image is brought in from an external source sometimes. This is becoming a big issue across our team.

  10. STRUMENTO CONTAGOCCE E TESTI DI COLORE DIVERSO NELLO STESSO BOX

    Ho un box di testo con alcuni caratteri rossi ed alcuni caratteri neri.
    Voglio copiare tutte le specifiche di testo (font, ecc.) da un altro blocco di testo con lo strumento contagocce senza modificare i colori del box di destinazione.
    Vedo che dallo strumento contagocce ci sarebbe la possibilità di escludere/includere il rilevamento del colore, ma quando si applica al box di destinazione tutto il testo contenuto diventa di un unico colore....
    PREGO RISOLVETE, GRAZIE !!

  11. Color Theme Picker works with problems

    After the Adobe Illustrator update (don't know if it was the last one in April 2021 or the previous one) Color Theme Picker in a new version of the Recolor Artwork tool stops working. Not only in my app but in the apps of at least 3 people - different OS, different computers. It just doesn't activate then you click the icon.

    The solution was found but it was very strange - you need to open Adobe Illustrator not directly on your computer but through the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop app. Then Color Theme Picker starts working. And continues to…

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Colors Being Displayed Differently than in Color Picker

    I just decided to update to AI 2021, bad idea... I was working on a file and I realized that the color had changed from the original dark blue to a purple color. I do not know what happened, but I know it must have to do with the update because it happened right after this.
