  1. High Sierra 10.13.6, AI 22.1 Scrolling bar and File bar not showing. Also all files will close without warning

    Picture of missing scroll and file bar below. Makes it almost impossible to work on projects.

    All files will close without warning, while I am working on them.

  3. Illustrator and taskbar auto-hide

    I use the auto-hide feature for my taskbar on my dual-monitor Windows machine (specs below), but for some reason in Illustrator ONLY, I have to click out of Illustrator to access my taskbar. This does not happen in Ps, Ae or Pr
    So, if I'm working in Illustrator I have my main panel on my left monitor and my panes on the right. I have to click on my desktop below my panes to access my taskbar. (see screen shot)

  4. Problem merging dates from CSV into graph

    When merging data into an Illustrator file to create a batch of bar graphs based on a group of CSV files, numerical dates merge into the graph data as numbers with decimals instead of dates. A 6/30/16 date merges into Illustrator as 6.00 and 12/31/16 becomes 12.00, so every date with the same month appears the same. This also messes up the graph, leaving the chart with two categories instead of one of the data columns being assigned to the x-axis.

    This includes when dates are formatted (in Excel) as text, and when the dates include hyphens or periods instead…

  12. New from Template...

    In version 22.1 ”New from Template...” command works just like ”Open...” command. Earlier version ”New from Template” opens always template files from Cool Extras folder.

  15. Option key does not work at all.

    My option key(s) suddenly doesn't function AT ALL, not in CC2018, nor CS5.1. Tried multiple keyboards, and two different iMacs, one running Sierra and the other High Sierra. Tried all updates to no avail. Works fine on my Mac at work running CC2017. Please help with this problem. It's crazy frustrating.

  16. Opening CC 2015 files that have missing links causes the program to hang/crash

    Old 2015 save files which have a missing linked file cause CC 2018 to hang when opening the file. Opening the file in 2015 bring up the dialogue box 'missing file, do you want to continue to open'. It seems 2018 cant show the dialogue box or some strange bug so it hangs.

    Your bug reporting experience stinks! Tiny window to compose my message in, having to do a huge amount of scrolling. Your company culture is going south with probably Marketing managers driving these bad decisions...

  19. Illustrator 22.1 crashes on quit. (Mac OS X 10.11.6 on MacBook Pro i7 Late 2011)

    The latest Update to Version 22.1 won't work properly on my computer. Everytime I finish work and quit Illustrator, the programm crashes and freezes on exit screen, endlessly showing the rotating, colored ball (mouse pointer).
    I have to force quit, no other way to get around.
    So I switched back to Version 22.01 - everything working fine and smooth again.
