  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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%).

  12. v24.2 swatches / pattern issues - either one or the other - different from fill drop down

    in the latest version v24.2 (june2020) my swatches dissapeared and if i go to defaults RGB and click on the first (white) and last and then the last pattern in the block then click ADD TO SWATCHES and nothing happens or it only adds the last pattern.

  14. RGB black from Indesign translates to CMYK black in Illustrator upon Copy + Paste

    This is a bug and not an idea:

    What I copy RGB black (0,0,0) vector artwork from Indesign to paste into Illustrator, the artwork always pastes in with a value equivalent to CMYK black (0,0,0,100). The copy/pasting is happening from one RGB document to another ("Web" document in Indesign / "RGB" document setup in Illustrator).

    Please fix!

  15. White

    In. my company we can print the color White as a spot color. Our printer reacts on the name of the color "White".

    Until a while ago it was no problem to add a White color swatch to Illustrator.
    Now I get an error (see image).

    I don't know why it worked before and doesn't anymore.
    May be it's possible to make Illustrator work like Indesign and change the name of the original white-swatch to Paper?
    My problem would be solved :)

  16. Color Shifting

    In Illustrator CS5.5 I was able to adjust color swatches by increments (IE: Cyan: 0 to Cyan: .025). Now, the color picker will round the color to the nearest whole number or push the color to a different number. I've tried using the recoloring feature and I get the same situation. It will work sometimes, but will more often not work and just round the color up or down and not retain the value I have entered to CMYK. I always check if my file is set to CMYK because I am in the printing industry. Now, I can't hit…

  17. Impossible to apply graphic style to text background by moment

    I use lot of graphic style in my work, and I've to use it on text bloc (to create map mind per example)

    But sometimes, the style (or the color directly) doesn't work on the background (selected with the white arrow). The color appears in the properties but nothing happen… I have to create a new bloc and It works normally (or not sometimes)… I really think it's a bug it will be very nice to correct it because I often use this trick in my work!

    I use 24.0.2 on mac OSX Mojave

    Thx

  19. Fill & Stroke colors & gradients selective but only previous fill visible on object

    Latest Windows PC Version 10 64-bit. Adobe 2020 (24.0.2).
    Everything was normal until I began drawing a regular 5-point star with green fill & black stroke (fill color doesn't really matter). Layer shows correct colors of star in layers panel but the layer folder and what's visible on screen show no change in red fill result (which was set previously). In other words, choosing different fill colors made no difference. However, stroke color can be changed. Tried other shapes with same results. (Even restarted Illustrator.)
    Putting another shape on top of a previous shape caused the stroke of 2nd shape…
