  1. Pantone swatches being deleted even after adding them to the correct folder

    Our graphic users need to use additional Pantones in Adobe illustrator. In order to do that, they copy some Pantone files to the AI's Pantones folder on the local machine. When they open AI, they can see and use the Pantone. The problem is, that after they close the AI application, it the Pantone files being deleted automatically from the AI's pantone folder. Therefore, they copy the Pantones to the AI's folder each time they need to use it, which is very discouraging.

  3. Saving to Creative Cloud is Changing My Patterns

    This has to do with repeating patterns. I'm using Adobe Illustrator 2021, desktop.
    Attached is a picture of 2 circles on a background (shield your eyes, it isn't pretty :-)). When I make the pattern - in this case, the circles were drawn with the blob brush - the inside of the 2 circles is empty and we can all see the background. It's a ring. When I pull that pattern out of swatches, however, it will color in that background. In this one, it's black. It changes depending on the pattern and the colors I'm using. And it is…

  5. Spot Colors in Linked or Embedded Images can be Renamed in Swatches Palette, breaking functionality

    Double clicking a spot swatch in the Swatches Palette allows you to rename the swatch. In past versions, Illustrator would not allow you to rename the spot swatch if it was used in a linked or embedded image. Now the spot swatch can be renamed whether or not it is used in an image. There is no warning that the spot being renamed is in use. After renaming the spot swatch, the Swatches Palette does not show the spot actually used in the image. Changing the color values of the spot swatch before renaming changes the appearance of the image,…

  7. Color resets in Color Picker window, when cursor moves out of the window from an edge/corner

    In Photoshop, when we open the Color Picker window and are dragging the cursor over the color brightness area (the square which shows the different shades of the current color of the color wheel) and then while dragging, if we move out the cursor from any of the edges or corners of that square area, the color on the edge gets selected. That's the ideal behaviour.

    In Illustrator, when we drag out the cursor from a corner (For example, to select black color, I'd quickly drag out the cursor from the bottom left corner) Illustrator resets the color to the…

  8. Attribution NUMÉRIQUE des couleurs

    I type it : " C 18 / M 98 / J 97 / N22 "

    I save.

    Then i open the color's details.

    I get : C 22,68 / M 97,9 / J 99,65 / N 17,56

    If i type EXACTLY a number, i want to get EXACTLY THIS NUMBER. And if i go to RGB and then come back to CMJN, I WANT EXACTLY THE NUMBER I TYPED. Why i typed this value ???? Cause i want THIS value. Not another.

  12. copy and paste random color change

    1.macbook pro 2021, big sur 11.4
    2. version 25.3.1

    within the same file, when I copy and paste an element, the fill is changing. the same issue does not occur when option dragging the drawing. it happens repeatedly. The fill that is changing is a colored pattern fill. It has happened with all "original" colorations (ie it does not only happen when using the light blue fill like in the movie. but they all change to the same yellow fill like in the movie.)

  13. Color blindness - Deuteranopia-type proof uses the incorrect Deuteranope confusion point.

    The Deuteranope confusion point was published as xy = (1.08, -0.08) in color vision texts circa 1970.

    However, the currently accepted Deuteranope confusion point is xy = (1.40, -0.40).

    Unfortunately, Adobe Illustrator appears to use the OLD confusion point in the Color blindness - Deuteranopia-type proof mode. As a result, the simulation is inaccurate and inconsistent with current vision science understanding.

    This may affect other Adobe products as well but I have not checked those. A comprehensive check should be performed to ensure the Deuteranopic confusion point is updated to the modern standard, xy = (1.40, -0.40) everywhere.

    The attached…

  14. Dragging a gradient slider stop changes the opacity of other stops on the slider

    Hi all.
    Since I was asked by one of the Adobe employees, here's my post.
    Windows 10.

    I am getting seriously miffed. After using Illustrator ever since the nineties I can no longer do what I need so, so often: duplicating a color stop in a gradient while keeping the other stops as they are.

    Say I have the following:

    Stop 1 - position 0 - Opacity 0
    Stop 2 - position 25 - Opacity 100
    Stop 3 - position 75 - Opacity 100
    Stop 5 - position 100 - Opacity 0

    I need a zero opacity stop on position…

  15. The colors in the closed file are persistently and almost forcibly trying to enter the palette.

    Let's say a spot color was used in a previous work and somehow copied. Later, when the file job is finished and I start another new job even though I have closed it, the copied color in the closed file persistently and almost forcibly tries to enter the palette. I tried to describe it simply in the video.

  17. Applying stroke for a non-grouped marqueed set of shapes removes fill from those objects (v25.3.1)

    Just as the title says, selecting a set of non-grouped objects and applying a stroke that selection causes all of the fills in those shapes to be removed.

  18. Colour code changing Illustrator 25.4 BUG!

    When I put in a number on R G B example R88 G122 B27, it changes but then when I select another object and go back to double check the other object the colour has changed back to something else. See screen shot. I saved the colour in the pallete. The colour should have the same values as the name I want R88, G122, B27 but its value is different, its giving me a different colour value.

    My colour setting are see screen shot

  19. Imported objects loosing color from brush and swatch

    objects imported into another illustrator file loose their colors in both preview and swatches. We build items we produce by bring in standard objects that represent items we use over and over. Since the upgrade to 25.3.1, when we import those objects, the color is removed, does not happen in 25.2.3.

    macOS 11.4
    Illustrator 25.3.1 problem app
    Illustrator 25.2.3 no issue

    copy a lace object from sample to another file and it will loose its color
