  1. Transparency not working once saved to pdf or opened in photoshop

    I have open a file previously worked on, and when I save to pdf the effects created with transparency are not working at all, as if they are not there.

  2. Editing 3d Extrude In Existing File Loses Some Values

    MacOS 10.15.7
    Adobe Illustrator 25.2.3

    The shading/lighting and depth options are sometimes saved, but the style is always lost upon accessing the 3D Extrude filter options on an existing file. Problematic for teams that may not be aware of a particular style/value since this effect is finicky to begin with.

  3. 3D wire frame is really strange

    Can somebody check it, would be nice if someone did it professionally. The lines around the globe are not as they should be.

  7. Stop rasterizing the gradient on an object when expanding its appearance

    When you expand the appearance of an object with a gradient, the gradient is rasterized, which I believe, defeats the purpose of using it considering the results. The resulting image has a lot of erroneous White specs. If there is a stroke aligned to the center, it creates two layers with the same gradient, which means you have to unite them with pathfinder. A layer that's shaped the same as the rasterized object with the gradient is the color gray.

    The workaround is to apply a solid color, then expand, then reapply the gradient, but it took me some time…

  8. "Preview" button does not turn off effect in non-destructive effects like "tweak"

    Select outline
    Select Effect > Distort and Transform > Pucker & Bloat (or any of them except Twist)
    Check off or on "preview" in dialog.

    Preview does not turn off.

  9. Envelope Distort isn't working properly.

    When I try to use envelope distort it makes all of the type look crazy. I have used it successfully in the past, I unchecked the distort button in options. Not sure how to solve, I restarted and reinstalled illustrator - still not working. The attached image shows the 2 elemtents I am trying to distort and the bottom shows the result I get.

  10. envelope distort is not working

    When I use envelope distort I get all of the type going crazy. I have used this in the past, not sure why it is not working now. top image shows the 2 things I am using with envelope distort and the bottom shows what happens. It happens even if I just use one word.

  12. Opacity Doesn't Live Update when using Properties Panel + Keyboard

    AI Version: 25.2
    OS: MacOS 11.2.1
    Using CPU & GPU Preview

    Problem:

    • With an object selected, open the Properties Panel.
    • Click in the Opacity field and use the keyboard to increment the opacity up or down.
    • Note that the object's opacity doesn't change unless the change is accepted either by pressing the Return key, or clicking into the artwork.

    Expected Behaviour:

    • As the opacity is adjusted using the keyboard, the artwork should demonstrate the changed opacity.

    Notes:
    - If you use the Transparency Panel, and adjust the Opacity there, the keyboard commands are recognized as usual.

  13. warp Effect not working

    I used to be able to take a straight line and make it wavy with the Effect > Warp > Wave effect - I see that there was a previous 'resolved' ticket on this - it is NOT resolved. I have been using Illustrator for over 25 years and have never seen this app in such a bad state. I am spending more time here today flagging bugs than working on my projects today. I hope you understand how frustrating ALL these bugs are when you are trying to get a project out the door and a client is screaming…

  14. A máscara de opacidade não é redesenhada em tempo real / Opacity mask does not redraw in real time

    Amigos, bom dia.

    Após algumas atualizações, tenho notado que o uso do recurso "Opacity mask" em meu Illustrator não consegue apresentar o resultado visual (redesenho) em tempo real. Se eu não forçar a visualização com "View / Outline (Command + Y)" o efeito não pode ser visto.

  15. Improper transperancy handling

    when creating an object with a simple transparency, it renders different siting above a white background vs a white object. I've had someone else recreate to verify it's not just my install. See attached screen shot.

  18. Kalligraphiepinsel

    Hallo, ich habe einen ovalen Kalligraphiepinsel angelegt und einem Pfad zugewiesen und die Pfad-Form erhält einen kalligraphischen Kontrast. Soweit so gut. Klicke ich allerdings erneut auf die kalligrafische Linie, um sie erneut dem Pfad zuzuweisen (zum Beispiel, weil ich diesen verändert/verlängert habe), so ändert sich mit jedem Klick der Winkel im des Ovals. Ein Bug oder eine Voreinstellung, die ich noch nicht kenne? Vielen Dank für jede Hilfe.

  19. 3D - Extrude - Isometric Top is skewed so edge does not run parallel with Isometric - Right

    I made a square out of vertical rectangles of alternating colour and wanted to make it into each face of a cube.

    However, 3D - Extrude - Isometric Top (with no bevel or shading) effect is slightly skewed.

    Therefore, I cannot connect each anchor point to make a cube. See screenshot to see how the top's edge veers away from the right side.
