  3. Bug: Illustrator 22.1 Not Usable Since Mojave Update

    1. Mojave update on latest Illustrator CC version 22.1

    2. Basic usage of Illustrator

    3. Use Illustrator normally

    4. Random mouse clicks, movements etc making illustrator unusable. It's as if the interface and cursor just has a mind of its own sometimes. Even happening with Illustrator CS6 - Photoshop and InDesign CC have no issues at all.

  6. Recolor artwork window stops working shortly after opening (Illustrator CC2018)

    Im using Adobe Illustrator CC 2018 on macOS High Sierra (10.13.2).
    I'm trying to recolor my artwork but the window accessed via Edit colors > recolor Artwork freezes shortly after using it.

    Everything remains responsive except that when I click any part of the window there is no response from Illustrator. I can still move the window around but cannot exit it. The OS doesn't recognize it as a crash (no "not responding" message).

    I've been working on the same document in Illustrator CC 2017, recoloring worked fine in then.

    Any idea how to fix this?

    Thanks for the help…

  8. Moving objects - error message "can't move the object"

    I'm working with vectors and type. Since the update to CC2018, at random moments and in multiple files, I'll select a vector object and select some text, then try to move them, and I'll receive the error message "Can't move the objects. The requested transformation would make some objects too large". The problem is going to force me to revert back to the 2017 version of Illustrator - please make sure this is fixed ASAP. See attached screen grab.

  10. Select > Same > (Fill, Stroke, etc.) no longer working in charts

    Adobe CC2018
    When using the direct selection tool to select a single element of a chart or graph, Illustrator no longer responds to the Select > Same > ... commands. This is a feature we rely upon for everyday capabilities when styling charts. When I try the command, it does not select anything within the chart. If I ungroup the chart, or use the Select > Same > (options) with other Illustrator shapes, it works as normal. The problem surfaced immediately after I upgraded from CC2017 to CC2018.

  11. Copy and paste object values error

    9 times out of ten when I copy and paste a simple object like the one on this art board, it pastes as the objects text values. It is really annoying.

  12. Crashes on "Cancel" in Keyboard Shortcuts Window

    1. Illustrator CC 2017 (21.1.0)
    2. Pressed "Cancel" in the Keyboard Shortcuts window.
    3. Expected Keyboard Shortcuts window to close without saving changes.
    4. Illustrator crashes

    No plugins installed.

    Removing preferences resolves the bug, but something in the process of re-setting my preferences makes the bug return.

    Please let me know if you require further information.

  13. User Guide Correction - Broken Links

    The section of the user guide called Painting > Gradients is full of nothing but broken links. https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/gradients.html
    Your links all just forward to http://create.adobe.com/ and http://tv.adobe.com/vi+f1586v1019
    which isn't helpful at all if you're trying to read the user guide in any meaningful way. Of course I can google ways to use the gradient tools but I came to you for the definitive "adobe prescribed" version of information as a way to prepare for your ACE exams. I know I'm not the only one who does this to bone up so if someone could help fix broken links it would…
