  2. Certain colors generate #000000 HEX values in Color Picker dialog

    Bug in 2023 (v 27.1.1) Illustrator. Certain colors, when examined with the Color Picker, shows HSB rightness of 0, RGB all 0, and Hex code of #000000. See GIF.

    This is a pretty severe bug with other downstream consequence. Dragging these "broken" colors into swatches, for example, generates pattern swatches instead of process color swatches.

    1. MacOS Ventura 13.0.1 (M1 pro)
    2. 2023 (v 27.1.1)
    3. examining colors by double-clicking the Fill color square
    4. expected: always have valid HSB/RGB/hex returned. Bug: some colors give incorrect values.
    5. See screenshot & video at https://vimeo.com/786775139

  3. 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.

  4. 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。

  5. Color values of existing objects change when images are placed by drag & drop

    A bug report was received on the Japan Forum stating that when an image with a color profile embedded that differs from Illustrator's color settings is placed by drag-and-drop, the color values of existing objects are changed.

    Here are the steps to reproduce the problem.
    Save the image with Adobe RGB (1998) embedded as an example.
    Specify sRGB in Illustrator's color settings and set a color management policy other than "None".

    Under the above conditions, when an image file is dragged and dropped onto a document, the color values of the existing objects are changed.
    This behavior may be a…

  6. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. Bug: duplicate color names

    MacOS 12.6.2
    Illustrator 27.1.1
    The issue: one can create multiple swatches with the same name.
    Create a few non-global swatches or use existing ones. Go inside the swatches and edit the names to the same value for all swatches — no error is triggered.

  11. Color Mismatch when copy/pasting within Ai

    In 27.2, copy/paste, while staying in Ai gives a color profile mismatch warning.

    This is weird and should never happen. It also asks to Merge color swatches.

  13. Loading an external swatch library file freezes the app every time.

    Loading a external swatch library freeze the app every time. Loading swatches from a file does not.
    The freeze replicated by different swatch library files. Both my swatch library files .ase and files are offline. My frozen work file is in Creative Cloud.

    (meta feedback: This feedback system is slow and inefficient. I just wanna leave my bug report and leave. I'm working on clock paid by my client so I have no time flipping through pages of others' writing to find a similar feedback and vote. By imposing this inefficient feedback system, Adobe is missing a lot of other…

  16. PROBLEM Mixing and changing swatches colours in the file...

    We are currently designing on about 250 designs witch we have in the same file as different art boards. In the swatches panel we have created two different groups of colours (each group has 8 swatches). We design in each art board (for example Art 1) with one of the group colours (lets name it A). When we finish colouring Art1 we copy the design in the next art board Art2 and now we colour it using the other group (lets name it B). We save the file and the next day when we open it we find that the…

  17. Color UI won't stop auto filling in shapes with a last used color

    I don't know if this is a bug or not, but ever since updating to Illustrator 27.2, the color picker in the color UI (after holding shift + click) won't stop auto filling in selected shapes with the last applied color used to fill in a previous shape. This is very frustrating and significantly bogging down workflows.

  19. Can't recolour a shape or object

    I can't seem to recolour shapes or objects in the latest version of Illustrator. Normally, I would be able to insert a hex code, press enter and it'll be done.

    However, now, I have to insert the hex code and click on one of the other boxes for the colour to load before pressing enter. In this case, sometimes the wrong colour appears and I'd have to adjust the RGB/CMYK/HSB numbers to get the right colour. This happened when I was trying to insert a thistle colour and ended up with beige.

    Even worse, I sometimes enter the hex code…

  20. Colors in newly created files get neon-like saturated

    I have created some new files while being connected to a projector (NEC).
    When opening the same files later without being connected to the projector, the colors are extremely saturated.

    File saved without an embedded color profile as I always do.

    The screenshot doesn't capture it well
