  2. Issues with changing tint by typing in % value and hitting Return key

    Illustrator 2018 CC 22.0.1
    Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6

    As per video, after typing in a numerical value for a tint on a global colour in the Color Panel and hitting Return, the value defaults back to original value. In my video, it shows that it’s having issues with values of 50% and 100% but this occurs randomly and can happen with different tint values.

  3. CMYK values changes

    On opening existing file and embedded profile mismatch, selecting "Convert doument's colors to the working space". will change K=100% to black defined in all CMYK values.
    However opening the file keeping embeeded profile and hereafter assign the profile keeps the values intact

  4. Touch Bar Color Controls are Broken

    Touch bar controls do not change the color of objects when using sliders, and swatches save to touch bar but not to actual swatches panel. Cannot delete swatches from Touch Bar.

  5. Creating a new swatch group from selection adds swatches that aren't used anywhere.

    At the end of a project, I like to select everything on an artboard and create a swatch group with "Convert Process to Global" checked in order to clean up my swatches and make final global tweaks to color.

    Often a handful of swatches will be added that aren't apparently used anywhere. I can verify this by selecting the swatch as a fill or stroke, then choosing Select > Same Fill (or Stroke) color. Nothing will be selected for either option. So is this a glitch, or how else can I find and delete the source of the swatch?

  6. Fehlendes abspeicher neuer farbfelder

    Kann keine neuen Farbfelder abspeichern, geschweige denn sie in der Bibliothek unterzubringen, noch die Standardfarben zu löschen… Wäre schön wenn man das über ein plussymbol hinbekommen könnte… plus neuen Farbenamen als Kategorie in die man die neuen Farbfelder speichern kann und beim antippen der Kategorie die Möglichkeit in Bibliothek zu speichern…

  7. The name "Black" is automatically blocked when creating global swatches

    If you create a new global color swatch, regardless of the breakdown, the name "Black" is automatically blocked. The name "White" is not.

    It seems silly to call this issue out, but I've prepared logo libraries for eight and a half years now, and this has been an ongoing consideration. When I create a black swatch, there is always an extra step. Sometimes I intentionally misspell the name to create the swatch, or I create a non-global swatch with the correct name, but in both scenarios I have to adjust the swatch AFTER it is created to produce a black…

  8. 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

  9. 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?

  10. 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.

  11. 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 !!

    After checking the Apply to all checkbox when I get a swatch conflict, the box keeps popping up with more conflicts. Esc key doesn't end it. Haven't seen this before v25.

  13. 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.

  15. Eyedropper making everything white

    When I select a shape and try to use the eyedropper tool to make it the same color as another shape it turns white. All of my layers are unlocked and visible so I am not sure what it going on.

  16. Color Profile Keeps Changing

    Hi,

    My RGB colour settings keep changing back to display. I have the original file set up as sRGB IEC61966-2.1 and when I copy and past anything in I get a warning if there are any colour mismatch issues. If there are any issues I click assign working profile. When I close and reopen that file it has now changed to Display.

    I'm using
    macOS Catalina Version 10.15.17
    Illustrator Version 25

    I'm work on branding projects so it's important that colors are consistent. How do I get illustrator to stop changing my color profiles?

  17. 25.0.1 Colour still wrong

    NOT AN IDEA—A BUG!

    The colour settings are still incorrect in the newest update.
    Totally unusable software, so back to version 24 again.

    The image on the right is correct from version 24. How that file displays in 25.0.1 is in the middle and the image on the left is the same jpeg as on the right imported into 25.0.1…!!!!

    3 totally different interpretations of the same colour. Insane.

  18. Eyedropper STILL not wroking on grouped objects in Illustrator 24.2.3

    When using the eyedropper on grouped objects, it'll show correctly in the color panel, but it'll only apply the stoke color to the group. Please fix this! The eye dropper has not worked for grouped objects for way too long now.

  19. Gradient Window Color Slider buggy, Selection area too small, adding color instead of selecting the color

    After updating to 24.2. Gradient Window Color Slider buggy, Selection area too small, adding color instead of selecting the color. Then it doesn't allow the selection of the color because it wants to add a new color. When I keep trying to select the color it is showing a plus sign and will not allow me to select the color that is there.

  20. Gradient stroke cannot be cut and pasted.

    Reproduction:

    1. Draw a path with a gradient stroke and no fill.
    2. Select and cut or copy the path.
    3. Paste. Normally, In Front, Behind, or In Place.
    4. The expected result is, of course, a new copy of this gradient-stroked path.
    5. Actual results range from a copy of the path with the stroke expanded, an image that was cut and paste sometime last week, or an error popup that says "This operation cannot complete because of an unknown error [PDF!]"

    Seen on OSX 10.14.6 with AI 24.1 and AI 24.1.2.
