  1. RGB colors keep changing on their own

    RGB colors keep changing on their own. File is open and after a while the rgb colours have changed. They become duller and keep needing to be reset. I have set the file up in rgb web mode. Have checked the color profile to rgb also. This makes illustrator almost unusable. Can't send file to client without having to go through every color to make sure it hasn't shifted. Serious bug issue that has been reported on before in 2022

  2. 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。

    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.

  4. 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.

  6. Files have a swatch that cannot be deleted

    Please help me understand why this swatch cannot be deleted. In this case it is a Pantone swatch, but in other files it's just a global color. I have deleted all objects and links in this file to be sure it's not connected to some hidden element.

    Thank you for looking. It is becoming an issue in file cleanup for clients. They all have this one odd, unremovable swatch from another project.

  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

  11. 「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。

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Illustrator Apple Silicon Bug (Eyedropper issue)

    It is a weird bug that appear on "some file" which trasfered between M chip & Intel chip.
    (It caused lots bug when a file transferred between these 2 chips)

    You can see when I pick a color, it gives me a wrong color (red) which was never used in this file!

    The only way to figured out is ... pick more times ! D:

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
