  1. ライブペイントオブジェクトにオーバープリントブラックを適用した際の問題

    ライブペイントを適用したオブジェクトに対してオーバープリントブラックを適用するとライブペイント設定が消える。

    macOS11.6
    Illustrator CC2022以降

    再現手順
    1. 線や麺の組み合わせでライブペイントを作成し着色する。
    2. ライブペイントオブジェクトを選択し「編集→カラーを編集→オーバープリントブラック」を適用する。
    3. ライブペイントに対して指定した処理が消え、閉図形外で保持されていた線も幅0.5pt、K100の黒に変化する。

    期待する結果
    ライブペイントオブジェクトに対してオーバープリントした際、閉図形外のK100の線等以外にオーバープリント属性を適用せず、ライブペイントオブジェクトの状態を保持する。

    実際の結果
    ライブペイントオブジェクトに指定した塗りなどの情報が消え、元から持っている線幅等の情報も一定値に変化する。

    代替処理
    ライブペイントに対する「ブラックオーバープリント」は行わない。必要なオーバープリント指定は手動で指定するか、ライブペイントオブジェクト自体を拡張してから「ブラックオーバープリント」を適用する。

  2. Measurement labels cannot be deactivated

    In "preferences" the option to disable "Measurement labels" does not work: they always remain active. It needs to be fixed because it is very annoying when drawing. Thank you.

  3. インストール時に同梱されるStartup Scriptのファイル名称が更新されていない

    OS macOS10.15.7
    バージョン Illustrator ver.26.0

    Illustratorをインストールした際にバンドルされるStartup Scriptである「/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Startup Scripts CC/Illustrator 2022/illustrator-20.0.jsx」ですが、このファイル名が数バージョン前から更新されていません。
    これはAdobe Bridge CCにおけるStarup Scriptの読み込みに影響を与えます。直近の2021と2020に関して書きますが、この2つはBridge起動の際にコンフリクトを起こし読み込まれません。

    対処方法
    1.ファイル名の是正
    Startup Script内の各ファイル名を変更します。Illustrator 2021内には「illustrator-20.0」フォルダと「illustrator-20.0.jsx」ファイルが存在しますが、これらをそれぞれ
    illustrator-21.0
    illustrator-21.0.jsx
    とします。
    同様に、Illustrator 2022内「illustrator-20.0」フォルダと「illustrator-20.0.jsx」を
    illustrator-22.0
    illustrator-22.0.jsx
    とします。
    また、ファイル内のXML部分もIllustratorでは全て同一の文面となっています。これはBridgeに読み込まれた場合に全て同じ表示となり、バージョンの特定が不可能になります。
    これは、以下のように「dc:title」部分を以下のようにすべきでしょう。

    <ScriptInfo xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xml:lang="ja_JP">
    <dc:title>Adobe Illustrator CC 2022/dc:title
    <dc:description>このスクリプトを使用して、他のアプリケーションと Adobe Illustrator CC 2022 を通信させることができます。/dc:description
    </ScriptInfo>

    以上の処理でBridgeがStartup Scriptを正常に読み込むようになります。

    Illustrator 製品版フィードバックへのご協力ありがとうございます。

    ご報告いただきました「../Startup Scripts CC/Illustrator 2022/」 内の「illustrator-20.0」フォルダ名と「illustrator-20.0.jsx」ファイル名についての問題を macOS と Windows にて確認いたしました。

    「illustrator-20.0.jsx」ファイル冒頭のビルド情報には、「@@@BUILDINFO@@@ “illustrator-26.0.jsx”」と記述されていますので、正しいファイル名は「illustrator-26.0.jsx」と思われます。
    従いまして、フォルダ名も「illustrator-26.0」になると思われます。

    また、ファイル内部の XML部分の「dc:title」、「dc:description」のバージョン記述ですが、製品名から「CC」は削除されておりますので、「Adobe Illustrator 2022」になると思われます。

    担当エンジニアにフィードバックし、どのように修正されるか確認できましたら、こちらでご報告いたします。

    今後ともよろしくお願いいたします。

  4. automatic quitting when clicking the red close button

    When clicking on the RED "Close" button, Illustrator prompts me to either (Save what's on the clipboard" or "Discard". Then automatically quits. EVERY SINGLE TIME. This is NOT right no matter what your tech support peons were told to say.

  5. Rotate tool dialogue box won't appear

    After selecting the rotate tool, rotate dialogue box won't appear.

    a dialogue box will appear only if I double click on the rotate tool but then I am not able to move the anchor point to the center of the object.

  6. Selection tool Lagging and moving objects on click- High Sierra (macOS 10.13)

    I have been an illustrator user since 2000.

    After this most recent update I noticed that when I use the Selection Tool (V) . The item, image, line, vector group, no matter what I click, begins to lag and then automatically jumps to the location of my mouse, Thought I simply clicked the item to select it and then moved my mouse, not clicked and dragged. The object reacts as though I clicked and dragged, so I am forced to select an object, let the bug run it's course, and then hit cmd +Z to undo the unintentional move.

    I…

  7. Illustrator Crashing when opening files

    When I'm working in Illustrator and I have another file I want to open, I'll double-click open a file and Illustrator will stop responding. I'll need to quit using the task manager and open the files again.

    I had a work-around of opening a file from File > Open, but now that just crashed my illustrator file as well.

    I'm working on Windows 10. Unfortunately I can't share my files, but it's been happening across several projects. Can't pin-point a specific issue.

  8. Crashes when closing Illustrator

    After saving the file I am working on and selecting to clear the data on the clipboard (or even if I select not to clear the data), Illustrator will freeze and the bring up the Adobe Crash report dialogue box.

    I have tried to provide feedback in this box, but if I change any of the settings on the Crash report box or type any comments, this too crashes. Windows registers the programme as not responding and tries to find a solution (and doesn't find any) and then closes Illustrator.

    In some cases, when I next open Illustrator it will…

  9. Sudden problem with embedded bitmaps

    I use embedded bitmaps for additional texture in my illustration. Since recently updating to the newest version of Adobe Illustrator CC, suddenly I am encountering a lot of problems with these-- they print irregularly, and create glitches when saving to some formats, like pngs. I have never encountered problems like this before.

  10. Error using picas

    This error has existed in Illustrator since at least version 10, in 2001.

    1. Switch units to Picas in Preferences > Units… or by right-clicking in the ruler and selecting Picas.

    2. Select any object.

    3. Go to Object > Transform > Move…

    4. Enter a negative value higher than -1p0. e.g. -0p9.

    5. Watch as the value is converted to a positive and the object moves to the right, or don, not to the left or up.

    In earlier versions of Illustrator this bug exited across the application in any dialogue that excepted a distance, including Offset Path, Effect > Convert to Shape (using…

  11. バウンディングボックスでのオブジェクト調整時にプレビュー境界が利用されない。

    macOS 13.6.3 iMac27inch(Intel/32GB mem/1TB Storage)/MacMini(M1/16GB mem/512GB Storage)
    Illustrator ver.28.3

    問題が発生したときに実行していた手順
    1.環境設定で「プレビュー境界」のチェックボックスをオンにする。
    2.「表示→バウンディングボックを表示」でバウンディングボックスの表示を有効にする。
    3.100pt×100ptの矩形を描画し10ptの線幅を付ける。この状態では変形パネルのwとhはそれぞれ110ptと表示されている。
    4.3の矩形の任意のコーナーをドラッグするためにマウスポインタを近づけプレスした瞬間にバウンディングボックスがプレビュー境界基準から線幅を参照しない状態となり線幅の分拡大された状態からの調整となる。

    想定していた結果
    プレビュー境界が有効な状態でバウンディングボックスを操作できる。

    実際の結果
    バウンディングボックスでの調整を行おうとしている間はプレビュー境界が無効になった状態での操作になる。

    2020(ver24)以降「プレビュー境界を使用」をチェックしている場合バウンディングボックスは線幅を含めた状態で表示されますが、そのバウンディングボックスを利用して拡大・縮小を行おうとした場合、ver23までのバージョンと同様にプレビュー境界を使わない状態での調整となります。そのため、バウンディングボックスの任意のコーナーをプレスした瞬間にオブジェクトが自動的に拡大された状態からのスタートとなります。この状態では微調整は難しく、運用上はプレビュー境界をオフにしないとバウンディングボックスによる調整はできないと考えます。

  12. Unmatching sizes for identical circles with Preview Bounds

    When Use Preview Bounds option is enabled, Illustrator lies about the sizes of some of the identical circles on artboards.
    See the GIF and the .ai document attached.

    Enable the option, open Transform or Properties panel and select each circle. Three at the top right will display the proper size, with the stroke weight included — 8.5 + 3.5px.
    Three at the left bottom will be only 8.5 id diameter, without the stroke accounted for.

  13. Illustrator crashes when you change document color mode from RGB to CMYK and from CMYK to RGB

    Illustrator crashes when you change a document color mode from RGB to CMYK, if the file was created in RGB and contains vector objects. If the file was created as CMYK and you try to change it to RGB, Illustrator crashes too.

    1. MacOS Ventura 13.1
    2. Illustrator 27.2
    3. Explained in the problem description
    4. Expected result - change color mode of the document. Actual result - application crashes.

  14. Cannot copy from one layer and. paste to another....

    After the latest update, copy and paste between layers is wonky. If I copy an item from one layer, it will only paste back into that layer. If I make the source layer hidden and try to paste, I get the "attempting to paste to locked/hidden layer" warning. I can select an object, then drag the small box that shows up in the layers panel to a new layer, but this is a bit awkward....

    This behavior is most probably cause by Paste Remembers Layers option, accessible in the Layers panel’s flyout menu.

    When it’s enabled, Illustrator tries to paste copied objects into their original layers.

    If the option it disabled, but it still does not work as you want it to, please reply back.

  15. While shift-dragging objects green plus appears and picture clipping file is created.

    This issue is intermittent, but when shift-dragging an object in order to maintain vertical or horizontal position during movement, a green plus will appear next to the cursor and upon release, the object will snap back to its original position and refuse to be moved until you use the Cmd+Shft+B shortcut, which seems to clear it temporarily. However, if after that green plus appears you drag your cursor off-window to the desktop, a macOS picture clipping file is created. I have been unable to locate any settings for adjusting the behavior of mac's legacy clipping feature, so I'm hoping this…

  17. Transform > Mirror does not work properly

    Illustrator Version 25.0.1 german (Funktion SPIEGELN)

    Sometimes if i use many time the mirroring function this mistake comes

    An object is mirrored, (Funktion SPIEGELN in german) axis VERTICAL.

    The object is copied, mirrored again and he remembers the last setting and is mirrored again on the VERTICAL axis.

    Then suddenly in between he suggests the ANGLE axis.

    This problem happens after using many times this function mirror, and not evray time very strange.

    I never saw anything like this in the old versions.

    I work with Illustrator all day and something like that is for me noticeable.

  18. Sizing bug of objects with corner radius

    Create a rectangle 25mm x 25mm.
    Change corner radius to 1mm.
    Rotate the rectangle 45 degrees.
    Try to change the with or height to 25mm in the transform palette.
    You will get weird 24,7714mm, 25,0076mm, 24,9997 sizes.
    Illustrator 24.3 MacOS verion.
    It's a shame that such an expensive graphic program can't handle the basic task of sizing objects.

  19. Decimal points added to values - Precision issues

    I am operating on Windows 10 and just updated to Ilustrator 24.3.

    I am having all kinds of massive issues with precision when working in files created between Illustrator 24.1 and the most recent update at 24.3. When I create text and set the point size, I'll come back later to find that it is "48.002 pts" and that the horizontal scale is at "99.9987%" and it is no longer aligned at x: 1 in., y: 1 in., but has moved to "x: 1.005 in" and "y: .9998 in." This happens will all kinds of objects, not just text. The…

    As I type this, I'm reinstalling AI for the second time this month. This time without saved prefs. Please, Adobe, make this storied and remarkable piece of software STABLE before you talk about giving us new features.
