  1. Dropdown menu cut off

    When trying to interact with the drop down menus those that are particularly long (and by that I mean it takes up the whole length of the screen) I can't access any features below the cut off. The most problematic instance of this phenomenon is in Windows drop-down because it cuts off at Pathfinder. The list goes in alphabetical order which means I can no longer access my swatch panel. I can't add it to me workspace. This is the same for all work panels after pathfinder; symbols, stroke, transparency, and so on.

    I'm working with Adobe Illustrator CC 2017…

  4. HEX Value can't overwrite spot colors in color palette

    I set a global color (Spot or process doesn't matter) but if I try to enter any code in the HEX value field, I'm not allowed to type anything. I must first convert the color to CMYK or RGB with the appropriate button and only at this point I'm allowed to type the code in the HEX field
    It would be much more practical to be able to insert the HEX code even without having to necessarily convert the color to CMYK or RGB first

  5. 線と塗りが黒のテキスト選択時にカラーパネルを変更するとパネルの挙動がおかしくなる


    PC:Mac Studio M1 MAX / OS Ventura 13.4と13.5
    Illustrator:26.5.3と27.7で同じ現象を確認

    ②線と塗りにC0Y0M0K100が適応されているテキストを選択した状態で、カラーパネルをCMYKからグレースケールに変える。

    ③C0Y0M0K100からK100になる。
    ④見た目は黒だがカラーパネルはK=0になってしまっている。
     修正しようとするとオブジェクトが白になってしまう。

    補足:グレースケールからCMYKパネルに変更した時も黒から白になります。ちなみにアピアランス設定で塗りと色を黒にして同じ操作をすると問題なく黒のままでした。

    既出でしたら申し訳ございません、ご検証宜しくお願いいたします。

  6. Changing color doesn't work sometimes

    This bug goes long way back, as far as I remember using illustrator, both on PCs and Macs.

    Sometimes (usually in text objects, but not only), when I pick a different swatch to change an object's color, the color in the swatch palette changes, but the object's color remains the same.
    To resolve this, I have to choose "None" as the color, and then choose the color I want.

  7. Newly redundant options in tranform menu

    With the AI ver 27.5 update the "transform pattern only" option does not work anymore in the Transform palette options menu. It used to be that the pattern would move interactively within its container if it was dragged or rotated. Now the whole object moves. My small business works exclusively on pattern design and this happens on both our machines. (Win 10 and Win 11. Both i7 with 32gb) RAM).

  8. Can't delete swatch

    I have a random color swatch that appears in my Swatches palette every time I create a new document. It cannot be deleted. As far as I can tell, it is not being used anywhere. I can change it to a different color, but then if I try to delete it, it not only does not delete, but it changes back to the original color. Right now, it's some random shade of blue, but at other times it is a different color that persists. Here is a video: https://youtu.be/MVJKo4i0xfw

  9. 「レビュー用に共有」で塗りがネガポジ反転する。

    「レビュー用に共有」をしたときリンク先で表示されるドキュメントの塗りや線の色がネガポジ反転してしまいました。
    色々と試してみたところ、カラー絵文字フォントが原因のようで、アウトライン化したら正しく表示されるようになりました。
    アウトライン化前とアウトライン化後のファイルを共有しておきます。
    (正しい塗りの色は青です)

    こちらはリリース版(27.4.1)、プレリリース版(27.6)どちらも再現しました(Mac OS、Ventura)。
    Windows11のリリース版も同様です。
    いずれもブラウザはChrome。MacはSafariでも試しました。

  10. Colors don't match

    The color picker rounds the CMYK to the nearest whole number but the color window does not. They should be made consistent.

  11. Numeric keypad not functioning properly in AI v27

    When trying to type in numeric values in the swatches, it will change as you type the default back to "zero". I've gone back and forth between v26 and v27 and it appears to be working fine in 26. It is pretty much anywhere you have to type in numeric values.

  12. When I import a Color Library it changes to a swatch spot color and is a magenta spot color while folder is empty

    When I add a color library, downloaded from Adobe to my library and I tried to import into swatches it changes to a magenta color. The folder also comes up, but has no colors added to it. It's been doing this for multiple versions for a while now.

  13. Bug: dragging global swatch to the “plus” button doesn’t work as expected

    MacOS 12.6.2
    Illustrator 27.1.1

    To replicate the issue:
    Create a group of swatches and put a global swatch inside the group.
    Drag this swatch to the [+] button to create a duplicate.
    The actual result: A new global swatch is created outside the group with “Original Name copy” name while the original swatch is also renamed to the same name. Changing one of those swatches also changes the other, they act as one swatch.
    Expected result: the same as when you alt-click the [+] button to duplicate a swatch. A new global swatch is created in the same group, it’s…

  15. Editing pattern or symbol changes selected layer

    Upon exiting edit mode for symbols or patterns the selected layer will change to the top-most layer. It should remember the selected layer prior to entering edit mode and maintain that.

  16. Illustrator changing color values every time I reopen program v 26.0.2

    I'm on a brand new MacBook Pro and I'm using illustrator from the cloud version 26.0.2 on Mac Monterey v 12.1. Every time I close out a file and reopen it the hex colors are changed. I have never touched the setting on my colors. I've attached an example below. You can see that when I was previously working in the file I listed the hex code, but now when I open it it is different. Please help. This is making my branding impossible and I'm turning in projects incorrectly as a result.

  18. Illustrator keeps oversaturating the color space even though modes/swatches are set correctly.

    When opening a file (usually with photography), illustrator will oversaturate all the colors regardless of color settings. Everything will be set to consistent CMYK settings but the colors show up so saturated and it's impossible to work in that space.

  19. Pantone swatches being deleted even after adding them to the correct folder

    Our graphic users need to use additional Pantones in Adobe illustrator. In order to do that, they copy some Pantone files to the AI's Pantones folder on the local machine. When they open AI, they can see and use the Pantone. The problem is, that after they close the AI application, it the Pantone files being deleted automatically from the AI's pantone folder. Therefore, they copy the Pantones to the AI's folder each time they need to use it, which is very discouraging.
