  1. Unexpected fills when editing a pattern swatch

    I manually created a pattern swatch and discovered I had an error. When I pull the pattern tile onto the artboard to edit I have fills where there were none. The motifs and lettering were created in Illustrator on iPad with the blob brush tool and then arranged into a repeating tile on the desktop -- most current CC release. I suspect the path orientation is reversed as when I try to remove the fill I still have a filled shape.

    macOS Catalina 10.15.7, Illustrator Beta 25.0 78@21978

    Wält man mehrere Objekten mit unterschiedlichen Farben im Illustrator und will die ändern mit Option "Neu färben".

  3. Gradient colour not following path of curved line

    When I go to colour the gradient after applying it to a thicker curved line a new shape is made and takes the colour and gradient that I chose. This shape appears to be connected by the same anchors as the curve but is just a straight line.

  5. Overlapping panels select multiple options with a single click

    Describing my program layout:
    With my panels locked to the right hand side of the program, I have two columns of panels, Stroke/Brush/Color/etc. on the far right (minimized to select individual panels to expand when needed), and "Swatches" as a standalone column locked to the left of my other panles and constantly expanded.

    Describing the error:
    With the Swatches Panel column expanded, and my other panels stacked and minimized, if I were to select the Stroke Panel from the right, and expand that single Panel from the column it would overlap the swatches panel. Making Arrowhead selections from the dropdowns…

  6. Display profile is hijacked when drag & drop screenshotswith P3 display (AI 24.3) on mac

    Take a screenshot (command-shift-4) and select the area. Drag in the image from its preview into an AI open document with color settings: North American web with the monitor profile preset to sRGB. Upon dropping the file into the canvas, the monitor profile becomes "Monitor" automatically. All the colors change visually with no warning presented.

  8. Changing color on gradient object freezes illustrator

    I noticed a similar issue someone was having in 2019, but it doesn't seem precisely the same. I am running Illustrator 24.3 on Windows 10. I recently pulled up an Illustrator file from last year to pull items for a new, related project. One of the vectors is a gradient - I'm trying to change it to solid fill. The only way I can do this right now is to change it to whatever solid is my default in my Tools panel, then change it to the actual color I want in my color palette. The Color palette automatically selects…

  9. Pantone Color Changes to CMYK

    When I have an object that has a pantone color associated with it but then the pantone swatch is deleted from the swatch panel, the object color changes to cmyk instead of keeping its pantone color. This is causing issues with printing, as it will print a different color than it is supposed to.

  10. Colour Hex Cut / Copy Error

    I'm switching between AE and Illustrator. Copying Hex codes from Illustrator and pasting them into AE.

    If I accidentally press Ctrl+X it starts misbehaving.

    It stops copying any codes and the clipboard has some SVG export code. I can't copy anything else unless I close and reopen Illustrator.

  11. 'Edit Color Group' does not respect global or spot color swatches.

    The 'edit color group' tool is a neat little palette explorer, but in practice I never use it because my workflow is centered around global swatches, and it completely ignores that.

    Try this:

    1. Make a few global color swatches. Draw some shapes using them.
    2. Double-click on one of those swatches, play with the sliders, notice that everything drawn in it changes to match.
    3. Make those swatches into a color group.
    4. Select the color group and hit the 'Edit Color Group' button in the Swatches palette.
    5. Change some colors, hit OK, yes you do want to save your changes to the…

  13. Links panel shows wrong colour space

    In a CMYK document the Links panel shows RGB images as CMYK. In the example image a PNG, which can never be CMYK, is incorrectly reported as being CMYK.

    This is in a CMYK Illustrator file. In an RGB file the image is correctly reported as being RGB. Placed CMYK images are correctly reported as CMYK.

  14. Although the color is selected, when I quickly select the area I select on my page, the color is not applied to the selected area.

    When I quickly select the area I select on my page from the swatches, although the color is selected, it does not apply the color to the selected area.
    Sometimes he never chooses. But it is necessary to choose very slowly.
    It slows down my working speed and drags it to error.
    We have 5 users here, we all ask for this problem to be corrected. This problem has not been before for the last 1 year, this event is driving us crazy.ediyoruz. Daha önce bu problem yoktu son 1 senedir bu olay bizi çıldırtıyor.

  16. Freeform gradient locking spot color

    If you use a spot color in a freeform gradient the swatch becomes locked, so you can't change the name or merge/delete the swatch.

    Additionally, If you use global color swatches in the freeform gradient and copy to a new document, the global color doesn't get added to the swatches palette - you have to save and reopen the file for the swatch to appear.

  18. Select same fill color does not take into account tints

    When I select "same fill color" or "same appearance" it selects all items using that particular pantone regardless of whether I am using that pantone at 100% or a tint (ex 40%, 50%, 60%).

  19. File opens with one color value & the values change when placed in a new document

    Hi There, I am working in the latest release of AI on a MacBook Pro OS 10.15.4 (Catalina) and I am reporting a bug I've encountered.

    To preface, I don't know the age of the original logo file. The artwork is a PMS chip value, saved in an RGB document.

    To get the RGB value of the logo I opened the file and inspect the color. Since it was a PMS, I go to the RGB view either in the color panel or the selector in the tool bar & I see a specific value. (0/53/98) when I paste the…
