  1. CC2018 Illustrator Multiply with CMYK colors and Windows 10 Fall Creators update (solid color)

    The latest Windows 10 update (Fall Creators) bugs out the Illustrators Multiply option when in CMYK setting. The Multiply option becomes a solid color instead of transparant and reacting with bottom color. When converting to RGB it works as intended and photoshop for example shows correct multiply in CMYK.

    current solution: revert back to older version of windows 10.
    ideal would be: adobe fixing issue

  2. long anchor point curve when zoomed in

    Windows 10
    25.3.1

    I used the Object > Expand on a stroke path I created
    When I zoom in to like 12750% or more, I see this long pen line that doesn't connect to the next anchor point, but when I zoom out it disappears like it was never there.
    It's nothing much, but it is annoying to keep seeing when I work.

  3. Color settings Reversing to default

    AI is constantly reverting back to a default color setting "Emulate Adobe Illustrator 6.0". Even after im made changes, saved the settings and pressed okay. When I quit the app and relaunch it, i lose my setting.

    This started after I updated Illustrator on March 9, 2021. Im running version: 25.2.1

  4. Lost stroke when copying dynamic symbol

    Hi,

    We use a lot of dynamic symbols in the fashion industry to make colorways and keep the link with the original sketch which is in black and white.
    In Illustrator CC 2019 (23.1.1) and CC2020 (24.3) version on Mac and Windows, I noticed several bugs with the dynamic symbols:

    When I copy a dynamic symbol (CTRL + C / CTRL+V), the outline of the copy disappears.
    When I copy a dynamic symbol (ALT + Drag & Drop), the outline of the copy disappears.
    When I copy a dynamic symbol using CTRL + C / CTRL + F, the outline…

  7. Hide edges not working

    When choosing to hide edges of selected objects, 1 or more objects still have edges visible. I have resorted to back saving my documents as this feature is crucial for layouts.

  9. Zero-height marquee

    Please study the GIF attached.

    1. I want to select an edge of the yellow-beige path
    2. I grab Direct selection tool and drag a frame over the edge — OK
    3. I make it faster — still OK
    4. I make it with my usual speed and get the marquee that has 0 height. It happens with me all the time! I don't fake it, I just automatically try to drag the less tall frame as possible, because sometimes I need to select quite a tiny segment. And when it happens — Illustrator selects nothing.

    Well, this is wrong.
    If you draw a…

  10. "Don't show again" check box

    "Don't show again" apparently means show every d*mn time.

    Checking the box never works. Why?

    And why does the pop-up that wants to give you the Adobe Illustrator tour show up every time I restart the program? I've used this program 20 years. I don't want to take the freakin' tour. Ever.

    Fix your sh*tty program and make it as good as it was before CC.

  11. In-app tutorials not opening

    I am using Adobe Illustrator 2020 24.1.2 that I downloaded from Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop.

    I am operating on a Microsoft Windows 10 Home version 10.0.18363.

    I opened the app and clicked on the in-app tutorials available in the Learn section. The tutorials that opens in browsers open just fine, it is only the in-app tutorials that do not respond in any way when clicked on.

    I expected the in-app tutorial to open and show a step-by-step tutorial by opening a new project, similar to the in-app tutorials in other Adobe apps (Premiere Pro, Photoshop, etc.).

    The actual result was…

  13. Changing units doesn't change anything

    Changing units doesn't change anything.

    Working in pixels but values show millimetres.

    This BUG (not an idea) comes and goes with each iteration.

    This is meant to be professional software—why are basic things like measurement and colour consistency so useless?!

  16. Grouped Objects Resizing Errors & Inconsistency

    macOS Mojave 10.14.5
    Illustrator 23.0.6 - ( issue has existed through many versions / upgrades )

    I thought that I had successfully reported this particular issue in the recent past, but cannot find it in a search, so am re-reporting. My apologizes if I'm doubling up.

    The Process :

    Let's say I have multiple objects of various width and height sizes — e.g. to keep things simple, let's say one object is 4in w x 4in h, and another is 6in w x 4in h.

    I then position/possibly-resize the multiple objects precisely and group them together so that their…

  18. Pathfinder precision needs to be addressed

    Why is the pathfinder tool imprecise in the latest version of illustrator? It leaves trash behind, creates extra nodes, distorts what were precise shapes, and just doesn't work like it once did? What gives Adobe?

    Here is one example....of what happened when I used the unite function. Why can it not create a perfect circle? How did you break the tool. Stop adding **** to your programs and fix the problems, PLEASE.

    Feel free to contact me directly. Please do. Do something...

  19. Paste remembers layers bug with isolation mode

    If you choose the option Paste Remembers Layers and copy elements when in Isolation Mode and paste these after exiting Isolation Mode, they appear on a new layer named "Isolation Mode". They should appear on their parent layer instead.
