    According to the team, there was an issue because of live color preview, and it had to be disabled in 27.6.1. The team is working on fixing the issue at the earliest, and then the live color feature would be in the release with the fix.

  2. Ink value changes to 0 while adjusting color

    When selecting multiple items with a different color mix, values changes to 0 when adjusting a single ink while it shouldn't change. In older versions this doesn't occur.

    In the screencap, the Cyan value changes to 0 so the colormix changes completely.

  3. CMYKのパラメータで触ったもの以外が勝手に0%になる。

    Win10 pro
    Ver. 27.1.1
    CMYKの異なるオブジェクトを選択後、CMYKのいずれかを同じ数値にしようとすると、選択したもの以外のパラメーターが全て0%に変更されてしまう。
    以前はそのようなことはなく、選択したもの以外のパラメーターはキープされていた。
    例えば、C:10,M:20,Y:30:K40とC50:M:60,Y:70,K:80の2つのオブジェクトを選択し、両方のYの値を90に同時に変更しようとした場合、CMKの3つの数値はキープされず勝手に0に変わってしまう。

  6. 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?

  7. 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…

  9. 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.)

  10. 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

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Illustrator automatically changing colors

    When you place image (RGB) into Illustrator it would preserve the color profile. Now it changes it automatically and this seems to be a common problem if you search the internet. Fix it as it makes this program far less useful.

  17. Pattern Seam issues with Adobe Capture patterns

    when using adobe capture patterns there is a transparent seam in the pattern, I am able to remove the seam by change the width of the pattern but its only a temporary fix as soon as I change the pattern the seam comes back. This issue only seams to happen in illustrator, because when I use the same patterns in photoshop there is no gap between patterns

    Steps to replicate:

    1. use adobe capture to create a pattern.
    2. create a shape in illustrator
    3. open the libraries tab and insert the pattern
      where lines/ spaces appear in-between the pattern

    4. go to pattern…

  18. 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.

  19. Appearance: Empty Stroke blocks Fill

    When applying a colour to a selection, sometimes this has no effect. While both the Color and the Appearance panel reflect the chosen colour, the object doesn't.

    Most of the time the (unlogical) cause seems to be a Stroke without colour.
    When changing the order in Appearance to having the Fill on top, the colour appears.

    Please make an uncoloured stroke of no influence on underlying fills.

  20. Recolor artwork modal panel stays in place

    The new recolor art modal panel doesn’t remember it’s previous position and always appears in the center of my window. Is this expected ?

    If it could be non modal and docked in my custom
    UI I would appreciate too.
