  2. colour themes/swatches/window never work

    colour themes/swatches/window never work. Every time I try to do anything within the colour theme window I'm either asked to sign in when already signed in, or I try to create a theme and it 'saves' but doesn't actually do so, and afterward the theme window goes blank and I have to restart illustrator.

    And now instead of doing work I'm here writing this and researching alternatives to adobe products. The sign in thing is driving me nuts.

  3. Picking a colour from the Library, randomly opens the colour picker

    I've got a shared library with assets and colours to use in the work we're doing. When I have an object selected and I pick the colour from the library, it's 50/50 if the colour picker dialog box is going to open or not. I don't want it to open, I've clicked the colour I want to use, so why does it pop up and get in the way? Really annoying!!

  4. Colour code 000000 (CMYK)

    I select 000000 for a colour (in CMYK mode) to create a nice black. This is C91 M79 Y62 K97. However, when I go back, it will still be 000000 but C00 M00 Y00 K100 - which isn't the same? It seems to change at random?

    This is on a PC using Windows.

  5. CMYK sliders don't work when decimals appear

    Mac OSX High Sierra Version 10.13.5 Adobe Illustrator 22.1
    I am new this month to Adobe Illustrator.
    I have been able to use my app for only 3 days in the last 3 weeks. I have a 2 second wheel of death whenever decimals appear instead of the normal number percentages. A few things happen when the decimals appear, either trying to use the sliders freezes the screen as it fades, or I can move the sliders and the decimals disappear, (3 days only), or I have just the decimals and cannot change the colors. Note the shade of yellow…

  6. Eyedropping in Isolation Mode is Broken

    In isolation mode, I'd like to eyedrop a non-isolated ("grayed-out") object to select its actual color rather than the dimmed color that's displayed.

    Don't you think it's far less likely that I'd want to eyedrop the grayed-out color?

  7. Eye dropper picks up the wrong color

    As seen in the clip attached, the eyedropper does not always pick up the correct color. After speaking with a few Adobe support members, they were unable to come up with a solution.

  8. global color slider occasionally stuck

    We work from a preset set of colors that I have set up as global colors so that we can easily use percentages of each color in the projects we work on. I have found that not infrequently the global color slider will get "stuck" on the initial percentage it is set to. Trying to change the percentage by typing in a new percentage will get set back to the percentage that it was originally set to (I was just working on a project where I set it to 30% initially. That looked too faint so I typed in "40"…

  9. Problem rasterising unicode-named spot colors

    If you make a spot color named not in English, assign it to a path and then try to rasterize it with "keep spot colors" option checked, the rasterized image will miss that spot color. It will be converted to process colors instead.

    Renaming it to English name immediately fixes the problem. Adding a single non-English letter (I tried Russian) returns it back.

    This can be easily tested with separation preview panel that hides unused spot colors. Tested on Mac with the latest Illustrator, also tried on older Illustrator CC - behaviour is the same.

  10. Changing colour by pasting code doesn't register as a change / can't save.

    I've got a pallette file (yes I should make a swatch), but that's not the issue.

    If I copy the code from one colour, then select an object in a different file and paste the code into the box… The program doesn't register a change has happened.
    So when I "cmd+s" it doesn't register and my assets don't update in AE.

  11. Radial gradient generates broken CSS

    Illustrator CC 22.1. To reproduce, create a rectangle with fill set to any radial gradient. Name the rectangle, open CSS Properties window. Observe the generated CSS:

    .GradientBox
    {
    background : -moz-radial-gradient(50% 50%, circle farthest-corner, rgba(255, 255, 255, 1) 0%, rgba(0, 0, 0, 1) 100%);
    background : -webkit-radial-gradient(50% 50%, circle farthest-corner, rgba(255, 255, 255, 1) 0%, rgba(0, 0, 0, 1) 100%);
    background : -webkit-gradient(radial,50% 50% ,0 , 50% 50%, 272.12 ,color-stop(0,rgba(255, 255, 255, 1) ),color-stop(1,rgba(0, 0, 0, 1) ));
    background : -o-radial-gradient(50% 50%, circle farthest-corner, rgba(255, 255, 255, 1) 0%, rgba(0, 0, 0, 1) 100%);
    background : -ms-radial-gradient(50% 50%, circle farthest-corner,…

  13. Mac Illustrator CC2018 cannot key in % of Cyan as the tint % of the Swatch

    When create a swatch e.g. 20C 80M 0Y 0K,

    I cannot key in 20 (%) as the tint of that swatch.

    Even use my magic mouse scroll one digit to one digit, next to 19 is 21.

    No digit 20.

  14. Custom color library have varied and inconsistent behaviors

    When creating a custom color library, for example, using PANTONE colors with custom CMYK values, Illustrator imports them in to the swatches pallet inconsistently. Double clicking adds colors one way, clicking on "add to swatches" adds color another way. And, some PANTONE colors are added differently than how they were imported in to the custom color library. For example: I created a custom CMYK build for PANTONE 115 C. I imported to my custom color library then double click to add to swatches. It adds the color but somehow converts the color to what looks like a Lab to CMYK…

  15. Colors Display As Black and Blue

    An AI file opens on all our computers except one, with 5 different colors, blue, green, and orange. The one exception opens the file but it renders as black and blue. In all the color settings areas it shows the correct colors but the rendering still doesn't render correctly no matter what you change.

  17. Eyedropper wants to convert everything to text color?

    I have several elements that need to be colored the same way. After coloring the first one, I'm trying to color pick it to color the others... only as soon as I hover over the previously colored object a T appears next to the eyedropper and it colors the object black, regardless of the color I click on with the tool.

    There is NO text on the page!

    I cannot find anything that addresses this problem, and I'm wasting a lot of time trying to figure it out.

  18. Transparent lines at beginning and end of Gradient Slider

    Changing the Opacity of any Gradient Stop in the Gradient Slider to less than 100% appears to add 1px transparency grid lines to the left and right of the Gradient Slider preview.

    In my screenshots, 100% Opacity displays correctly. 99% shows the transparency grid display bug on the left an right of the slider.

    The lines do not scale with the palette.

  19. Cannot set tint percentage to C (cyan) value except by sliding cursor

    Illustrator CC 2018
    Windows 10

    If I want to set the tint value of a CMYK colour to the same percentage as the Cyan number (66 in the example below), my only option is to slide the cursor, because typing the value or raching the value with the keyboard arrows don't work.

    This was already an issue with CS6, on both Mac and PC.

  20. Colour changes on Multiple Objects in Color Panel issues

    Illustrator 2018 CC 22.0.1
    Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6

    As per video, when trying to change colour of multiple objects in the Color Panel when colours aren’t set to Global, under CMYK settings I enter 0,0,0,0, hit Enter/Return on my keyboard, and nothing changes.

    When the multiple objects all have colours that are set to Global, the Color Panel has other odd issues. Selecting CMYK, greyscale brings up no settings, but RGB, HSB does, though odd settings show up.
