  1. CC Library Character Styles Set Leading to .01pt

    Character Style works fine in Character styles panel, but using Character Styles saved in a CC Library, results in leading being set to .01pt.

    This is with a style saved from document to library, or created directly in CC library.

  2. Creative Cloud Automatic Shut Down

    This might not be a libraries issue.

    My office is working off of Illustrator 24.1.3 and Photoshop 21.2.1. Recently Several of us has encountered an issue where all open CC programs will spontaneously decide to shut down. This isn't a catastrophic issue thanks to the fact that all files that have unsaved changes will ask if the user wants to save, similar to if they had used the short cut to quit. The difference here is there isn't a cancel option on the save prompt, and this happens to both Illustrator and Photoshop simultaneously, as though both programs have been…

  3. Library panel crashes and becomes black after selecting Next Object Above / Below

    If you select an assets from the library window (e.g. click a colour to apply to your working artboard) and then use the keyboard shortcut for Next Object Above / Below, it causes the Libraries panel to go black and it won't re-appear until Illustrator is rebooted.

  4. Creative Cloud item linked to "old" item when moving to another CC Library

    I have several Library on AI Creative Cloud (shared with a colleague). There is a "Final" Library where we store the design that will be used to print on final products, and there is a WIP (work in progress) library that we use for the yet to be released.

    In Final Library there might be an item call "1234a" and we would be working on "1234b" in the WIP library (1234b usually would be made as a duplicate from 1234a and then renamed and edited)

    Then we would place the 1234b on our artboard arrange several other items etc.

  5. Creative Cloud library assets make Illustrator Crash

    MACO 0S MOJAVE
    version 10.14.6
    Illlustrator CC 2019 and Illustrator CC2020

    I'm using a lot the creative cloud Libraries in Illustrator.
    Many times, when I create an asset in the library by dragging and dropping it into a group, the asset crashes Illustrator when I try to open it to modify it.

  6. CC Library Legacy Warning

    Operating System: Windows 10
    Illustrator Version: 24.1.1

    I am trying to add a CMYK graphic to CC Library. When I do, I receive the warning:

    "Saving to a legacy format may cause some changes to your text layout and disable some editing features when the document is read back in."

    Resetting my preferences did not help. I checked for Adobe updates, but Creative Cloud doesn't indicate there are any available. If I add it as an RGB graphic, I do not get the error. But I need the CMYK version.

  10. Illustrator loses links to artwork that is renamed in library

    When I rename a graphic I am reusing throughout my file, all links to that graphic are lost and when I try to copy layers containing those linked graphics, Illustrator reports the following errors:
    - "the document contains pdf objects that have been reinterpreted"
    - "an unknown imaging construct"
    - "an unknown shading type"

    If I have many instances of that artwork in multiple layers, it takes a lot of time to have to find every single instance, delete it, drag the renamed graphic in, move it to the correct layer, resize and rotate, and reapply the styles I had…

  12. "Not Compatible"

    I have a MacBook Pro, El Capitan 2015. The Adobe Suite is now saying all of my apps are "Not Compatible". I tried restarting my computer and the Adobe system multiple times. I was on the phone for over 3 hours with Adobe, no help, just said my computer is too old.

  13. Text fields not immediately active when renaming library items

    Renaming library items takes several steps to ensure you are in the text field and any keyboard commands will not trigger tools/menu items.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Click on an object,
    2. Drag to Library panel—often takes several times as noted in the video
    (the libraries panel and new documents from libraries is flawed and not as efficient as Adobe Max presentations allude to, but that's another post)
    3. After item successfully copied to Libraries, right click it in the libraries panel and click Rename
    4. CLICK AGAIN ON THE TEXT FIELD OF THE LIBRARY ITEM
    If you do not…

  15. Scroll on hover over unselected tools or library panels not working in 2020 release.

    Prior to the 2020 release of Illustrator, when I was working in a document (with my various tools panels and CC Library panel docked to the side of the page) I could have my artboard/artwork selected and hover my mouse over a tools pane or library and scroll to see my options (without clicking to select that pane.) Now it doesn't seem to work anymore. I have to click on whichever tools pane or the library pane to activate it before I can begin scrolling through the options. It may not seem like much of a bug, but it actually…

  17. Libraries Panel Disappears and cannot be accessed once reopened when you use Ctrl + [ after selecting a swatch or asset from it.

    When editing objects colors using swatches, or pulling in an item from the library, if you immediately use Ctrl+[ to change the layer your selection is on, it closes the library panel. When reopened, none of the items in the library appear in the panel, and you cannot save changes to any assets you have currently open

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 25.1 which is available worldwide now.

    Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

  18. CC Libraries import yields progress indicator for thumbnail

    With the most recent release of Illustrator (23.1.1) on a Mac running Catalina 10.15 Beta, any time I drag an item into the Libraries panel, a thumbnail fails to appear (instead I get a persistent animated progress indicator). I'm able to see the correct thumbnail of the imported item in other Adobe apps (Photoshop and InDesign), as well as online (Libraries --> View on Website). Only after I restart Illustrator do they appear.

  19. Fix Adobe Illustrator CC 2020 Type Library Reference - VB scripts return error

    We need to always keep the version of Adobe Illustrator CC up to date.
    Recently, the CC version used by the company has been upgraded from 2019 to 2020.

    We use the attached .NET Illustrator library module.

    As with other similar cases, I believe Adobe will solve it.

    Older versions work fine.
