  1. ドロップシャドウの一部だけが解像度が低い

    macOS Catalina (Ver. 10.15.7)
    Illustrator 2021
    ラスタライズ効果設定の解像度が「350ppi」に設定されている状態で、複数箇所でドロップシャドウを使用しているファイルがあり、作業前はすべてのドロップシャドウが正しい350ppiの状態(表示)だったが、編集作業終了時に1箇所だけドロップシャドウの表示が、72ppi程度の解像度に変わっていた。
    色々と動作検証をしてみましたが同様の状態にできず、原因不明です。
    低解像度のドロップシャドウ部分は表示のみではなく出力した際も低解像度のままとなっており、ドロップシャドウ部分に変更を加えたり、コピペしたりすると正しい表示に戻るようです。

  2. Custom Colors convert to CMYK automatically, when we set "Effect->Blur->Gaussian Blur".

    When we apply Effect->Blur->Gaussian blur an object with a custom color, it will be converted to CMYK color in overprint preview mode.
    Also, when we export PDF, it will convert to CMYK.

    Illustrator ver.24.2
    OSX 10.13.6

    The steps you were taking when you experienced the issues
    1. To make pathItems that colored Custom color.
    2. Select it and apply Effect->Blur->Gaussian Blur.
    3. Open Separation preview panel and check Overprint preview.

  5. 3d-Kreisel Darstellung und Renderfehler | 3d rotate render error

    3d renderings are perse buggy (see PDF) create invisible geometries (although switched off), render errors on the assembly line.

    The preview is miserable. I can't explain this to any customer, nor can I expect them to! In part, AI files were invited to be transparent in places where they shouldn't be.

    I have been using Illustator since 1990 and there is no other program that is as buggy and impractical as Illustrator. Fast is different.

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  12. Graphic Styles lost, duplicated and hard to manage in general.

    I have painstakingly applied graphic styles to hundreds of icons (the final icon library is for a large CAD application and comprises nearly 2600 icons) but all of a sudden, the styles are not recognised any more. Objects are still graphically the same but when I select an object, the styles panel does not light up where it should.
    I have been having trouble getting graphic styles to work properly with styles getting duplicated and the very clunky way of saving and reapplying graphic styles to objects. This issue just makes me think I shouldn't bother. What are Graphic Styles…

  14. Gradient along a stroke blend

    When blending 2 gradient strokes (gradient along stroke) the blend orientation does not stay consistent with the 2 original strokes. I know I can get the required results with gradient within a stroke or converting outline path etc but I need to get it to work using 'gradient along stoke' for my purposes.

  16. Gaussian Blur Bug Changes Appearance Between Different Versions

    This is a major flaw!

    We have an Illustrator file created in CC 2019 (23.0.6), it contains a PSD element that has a gaussian blur effect applied to it in Illustrator, set to a radius of 9 pixels, this produced a subtle blurred appearance. The file was then sent to a printer for test printing where they are using Illustrator CC 2021 (version unknown) and when they open the file the object becomes very blurred, completely changing its appearance.

    I've managed to replicate the bug using Illustrator CC 2020, the object's radius blur effect changes to 9.021 pixels and the…

  17. Weird Facets in Gradient Fill

    Issue, rather than "Idea". Using a simple, gradient fill, in Illustrator CC 25.2.1, I'm getting these weird facets, rather than just a smooth transition. Anyone else have the same issue?

  18. ドロップシャドウを適用したオブジェクトをグレースケールに変換するとシャドウ部分がマスクされてしまう

    macOS10.15.6 Illustrator ver.25.2.3

    再現手順:
    1.長方形を作成し塗りを設定し、「効果→スタイライズ→ドロップシャドウ」を適用する。
    2.1のオブジェクトを選択した状態で「編集→カラーの編集→グレースケールに変換」を適用する。
    3.オブジェクトの下に適用されているドロップシャドウ部分がオリジナルの長方形をドロップシャドウパネルの「X軸オフセット・Y軸オフセット」分移動した状態の図形にてマスクされる。
    4.「分割・拡張」を適用してアピアランスを分割するとマスクされた状態でビットマップに落とされる。

    期待する結果:
    シャドウをクリッピングせずにカラーの変更のみ行う。

    実際の結果:
    シャドウがクリッピングされてしまう。

  19. Mirroring elements takes line thickness or pasted inside elements into account which makes little sense

    When mirroring lines via the effect tool at their outmost left or right side (see last screenshot), the effects takes the line thickness into account. I cannot think of any cases where this is of any use. I would expect a behaviour as shown in the second screenshot.

    Same thing with elements that are pasted inside. The effect mirrors from the pasted inside object instead of the box into which the object is passted. Why? Is there one single case where this makes sense? I could not hink of any. Again the diesired behaviour is shwon in the second screenshot.
