  2. Illustrator Gradient looses blending when copied and pasted.

    Trying to copy and paste a design with a gradient on it, And the gradient apears chunkier and sharper when copied into a new canvas. If i copy on the original canvas its fine, but not on a new one. Ive checked the grain values and opacity and they are all the same. Wondering if any one has a sultion to fix this bug?

  4. Recolor Artwork stops working if more than one document is open

    If I have two documents open, I am unable to use Recolor Artwork under Color Guide. It just stops working. Nothing happens when I pull the sliders, click to randomly change the color order or click on color groups. It's broken.

    Everything turns back to normal when I close the other document.

  5. Pasting a hexadecimal color code into the Fill or Stroke under properties > appearance occasionally causes Illustrator to freeze up

    1. MacOS 10.14.5 (18F132)
    2. Select an object (for example, a rectangle), in the properties panel, under the appearance heading, select either fill or stroke, and paste a hex code into the textbox at the bottom of the popup panel. Occasionally, this results in Illustrator freezing, and can only be fixed by force-quitting.
    3. It not to freeze
    4. It freezes
    5. Video attached showing the behaviour once it is frozen

  7. Eye dropper not applying proper color/hex from Adobe Color Themes panel

    I'm using the latest Illustrator v23.03. When selecting colors from the Adobe Color Themes panel, it does not copy the correct color hex to the selected item in my document. In the attached file, which I've scaled up for easier viewing, the square tiles represent the proper color within the Adobe Color Themes panel, with each overlaying the incorrect color Illustrator is copying over when selected. As you can see, there is a major discrepancy. This does not happen with all themes...some copy over perfectly, but many (in my case) do not. I've tried adjusting color profiles to see if…

  8. Recolor not working on items within a clipping mask

    Items inside of clipping masks do not get recolored like they used to using the Recolor tool. You have to directly select them now and manually recolor.

  9. can not operate the slider of the gradation panel

    I use google translation

    1. Max OS Mojave 10.14.4, Illustrator CC 2019 23.0.2
    2. Select a gradient from the tool panel
    3. I want to operate the gradation slider
    4. I have a problem with the graphic panel and I can not click the slider. The bug disappears when dragging out of the panel group by dragging the gradient panel, but returning it to the panel group and selecting the gradient again from the tool panel causes the problem again.

    The same phenomenon as the attached image occurs. The opacity and position boxes overlap the gradient box, and the gradient slider can not be…

  10. Adjusting gradient on ONE selection adjusts ALL other objects with the same gradient

    When I select ONE object with an existing gradient and then try to adjust it, it will change ALL objects that have that same gradient. Extremely frustrating.

  11. saving colors to adobe is disabled please contact your IT administrator

    Illustrator 23.0.2 (64bit) and Windows 10 Versions 1809 OS Build 17763.379

    This has happened numerous times over the past few months.

    I try to create a new custom Adobe Color Theme in Illustrator. I am not able to do so and am given the error message:

    "saving colors to adobe is disabled please contact your IT administrator"

    I have tried restarting the program and signing out and signing back into my Adobe Creative Cloud but the problem remains.

    Hope that helps - looking forward to a fix.

  12. Colours Suddenly change and go lighter

    Running latest Creative Cloud on El Capitan, 10.11.5.

    When working on a file, all of my colors suddenly get lighter, almost like I'm working within a group. When I look at the swatch color values they have the same hex as a previous doc, but don't display the same.

    As a quick test, I exported the corrupt version as a jpeg and rectified the colour in photoshop by altering the levels.

    At the time of the switch I was working with the rotate and extrude tool.

  15. Adobe Color Themes pop up is unnecessary and obstructive.

    When using the Adobe Color Themes panel, there's a pop up that says "Click to set active color" when you hover over color swatches. You can't click on the color beneath the pop up without first moving the mouse off of the pop up. It makes using the color themes panel slow and obnoxious. Please either move the location of the pop up off of the swatches one is trying to access, or remove it altogether (or give us an option to disable it)

    Turning off "Show Tool Tips" in preferences doesn't fix the issue.

    It is also an issue…

  16. Allow a custom swatch palette to be the AI default without using "Legacy File>New"

    Unless I've missed something, it is not possible to use a custom swatch palette as the AI default for all new documents without using the "Use Legacy File>New" feature. No matter what I tried, I couldn't get my custom palette to be the default. Using the standard (non-Legacy) new document feature, I always have to navigate down through the menu to choose my custom swatches, and then it only applies to that one new document. About 99% of what I do is spot color artwork for silkscreen printing, so the AI default CMYK swatch palette is useless to me.

  17. Libraries now converts all my saved Spot CMYK swatches to RGB.

    I can no longer bring in my previously made Spot CMYK swatches as CMYK. All my spot color swatches are converted to RGB. I can create new spot CMYK swatches that come in properly in a newly created library but anything created in the past or in a previously made library is now all RGB.

  18. Adjustments in gradient slider not applying to grouped objects

    When adjusting the gradient slider for a group of objects, only some of the objects are affected by the slider. The rest of the objects don't change. Applies to both linear and radial gradients, but problem more frequent for radial.
    (In screenshot, the lower-right corner shows how some of the objects follow the gradient slider adjustment, but the rest of the objects in the group don't change. Using macOS High Sierra and Illustrator CC v23.0.1.)

  19. Freeform gradient lighter at edges

    Windows 10 running Illustrator 23.0.1.

    Created 2 colour swatches - light blue and dark blue.
    Applied a freeform gradient using the 2 swatch colours.
    Created a solid fill object underneath with the light blue swatch.
    The freeform gradient's light blue doesn't match the solid light blue; the gradient is lighter.

  20. Freeform gradients color stops were altered after crash

    Running Mac OS High Sierra and Illustrator CC2019.
    While editing one shape with a freeform gradient, Illustrator crashed. Document had been saved prior to the edits. When opening the recovered file, all objects using that freeform gradient had all their color stops altered. Instead of dark brown, med brown and yellow, color stops were changed to use Registration, an unnamed brown and an unnamed pale color. None of those colors matched what had been used prior to the crash. Had to manually go back and redo the freeform gradient.
    This feature is going to be really useful but you have…
