  3. Top Bar Menu Items Stop Responding

    Platform: macOS Sonoma 14.2.1 Illustrator: 28.1
    While operating and working on a drawing portions of the Title Bar Menu no longer respond to clicks (File, Edit, Object, Type, Select, Effect, View Window) however the Illustrator and Help still respond.

    It was necessary to use keyboard shortcuts to save work and was necessary to quit and reload Illustrator and then load the file I was working on and the menu items now respond.

    Has happened numerous times while working on recent drawings.

    It seems like this problem happens only for Mac Sonoma users...

    Downgrading to a previous version of MacOS seems to be a viable workaround at the moment.

    This is not a proposed solution though.

    If this happens for you at earlier versions — please comment.

  4. Missing Files Dialogue keeps re-appearing

    The missing files dialogue keeps re-appearing after exactly 10 seconds, despite me selecting "No" for the following message;

    "Some files are missing or modified in the Links panel. Would you like to update them now?"

    Using Illustrator 26.0 64-bit on Windows 10.

  5. Illustrator gets minimized when toolbars get touched at Mac Sonoma 14.1, with application frame disabled

    By updating to MacOS 14.1, In Illustrator 2024 28.00, as soon as you touch the toolbars, they disappear. Keeping the "Application Pane" active does not give the error. Can it be solved. A thousand thanks!

  6. ヒストリー項目が正しく表示されない

    問題の説明:
    MacOS10.15.7 IllustratorCC ver.26.4.1

    オブジェクトは複製されますが、ヒストリーパネル上では「取り消し」となります。

    再現手順:
    1. ダイレクト選択ツールを選び、アートボード上のオブジェクトを選択
    2. キーボードのリターンキーを押し移動ダイアログを開く
    3. コピーボタンをクリックする
    4. ヒストリーパネル上では「取り消し」と表示されるがオブジェクトは正常にコピーされる

    実際の結果:
    ヒストリーパネル上で「取り消し」と表示

    期待された結果:
    「コピー」と表示される

    回避方法:
    ありません。

    その他…
    ・編集→カラーを編集
    ・リピートオブジェクトの編集処理
    ・グラデーションツールによる処理
    ・ブレンドツールをダブルクリックしてブレンドオプションダイアログを開き変更を適用する

    これらも「取り消し」と表示されます。

    ツールバー下部、塗と線に下にある塗り、グラーデーション、塗りなしのパッチをドロップして「塗」「線」を設定しようとするとヒストリーパネルでは「取り消し」になります。

    段落パネルの多くの機能(インデント・段落前後あき以外)とOpenTypeパネルは項目が二重に追加されたりします。
    全般的にヒストリーパネルの表示はおかしいです。

  7. Full Arabic support not available with multiple languages installed

    macOS 10.13.6, Illustrator 2019

    When any language version of Illustrator installed other than Arabic, the full Arabic support is not available. Digits Type and Diacritic Positions are missing from the Character palette, and RTL/LTR and Kashidas are missing from the Paragraph palette, and corresponding tools are missing from the toolbar.

    Also, Arabic must be be installed from nothing - no previous language can be installed.

    AI does have the Middle Eastern composer options in the Paragraph menu, and correctly ligatures Arabic when one is set, but RTL is needed for correct punctuation and number display.

    Non-Arabic versions of AI do…

  8. Blue learn box won't go away

    I cannot see part of my workspace because the blue learn box covers up the panels and I cannot get it to go away. How am I supposed to use your program when your supposedly helpful box covers up what I need to see in order to create projects? This is unbelievably frustrating, and I am probably going to have to use some other program to create my logo since I cannot use the work space because of this idiotic blue learn bubble that won't go away and can't be moved, apparently.

  9. Alt + Scroll wheel doesn't zoom

    Just updated to 23.05 (64 bit windows 10) and the alt+mouse wheel no longer zooms. It just scrolls left and right same as CTRL+mouse wheel. If I use ALT+Shift+Mouse wheel it does scroll.

  10. Can't select or hide layers, AI instantly changes it back

    All was fine, until I discovered I can't change layers' visibility or lock them.
    Restart won't help. Please see animation attached and document shown.

    I remember I had this bug before but it somehow went away.

    Need More Info  ·  Anish Kumar responded

    Hi All,

    I am not able to reproduce this issue at my end. Would it be possible for you to share the file with me if it is happening in some file consistently? you can share it on sharewithai@adobe.com and tag me in the mail

    Thanks
    Anish

  11. Alt-Drag to Duplicate (and Shift to align) Only Works Intermittently

    Duplicating objects in Illustrator CC 2017 only works on occasion, it is not consistent as it was in previous versions. Holding Shift to align while dragging and duplicating also doesn't work. These were both key features of Illustrator and if there is a way to fix this problem I would be very interested to know how!

  12. When changing UI scale, dropdownlist is shown inverted and the bottom item is not shown.

    macOS 10.14.6
    Illustrator 2019, 2020

    Dropdown list is shown inverted when changing UI scale.
    It seems to display correctly when I mouse over it, but the bottom item is not actually displayed.

    These defects can be resolved by making the UI scale the smallest.
    This is a very troublesome problem as a script developer.
    I expect an immediate fix.

  13. Distribute spacing value field doesn't show units anymore

    The field used to show units (like '50 mm') in version 23.
    In 24 it says just '50' with no 'mm' after.
    If you type in your own unit, it won't recalculate in current units, as every other field in AI can do.

  14. The small Generative AI marketing window won't close.

    When starting work this morning, a small marketing window popped up inviting me to try Generative AI. I click on the little X in the upper corner but it wouldn't close without restarting Illustrator. These marketing windows are interfering with production and are useless, please stop using them.

  16. Enter key does not commit a change in a panel / dialog / field

    Transparency panel in Appearance window does not react on Enter in Illustrator 27.0

    After the latest update, this bug is spotted. In Appearance window -> Opacity panel (either stroke or fill) -> enter desired opacity -> hit Enter/CR -> no reaction (expected: apply value and close the Opacity panel). The TAB button however still works (the value applies). Other panels work as they should and react Enter correctly.

    OS: Mac OS 13.

  17. When a crash happens, the Recent Files lists get reset to the state they had on launch

    File > Open Recent Files list and a Recent files at home screen don’t get recorded somewhere safe as soon as a document gets opened.

    So each time Illustrator crashes (and sadly it’s a ordinary way and the only reason for Illustrator to get relaunched), both lists get lost — Illustrator shows them in the state they had when the program was closed successfully.

    Illustrator should update and store these lists as soon as they change and don’t loose them on crash.

  18. Closing while saving dialogue box has a grammatical error.

    The close-while-saving dialogue box says "Close anyways" as an option which bugs me because it should read as "anyway" not "anyways." The latter is grammatically incorrect. Not to mention that "getting saved" is also wrong and should be "being saved"

  19. Illustrator 2019 won't quit (thinks a window is open) & all the menus are in disabled state.

    Hello,

    I updated to Illustrator 2019 today, and I have gone to close it down but the option is greyed out in the file menu.
    If I click anywhere it makes the error noise as if I have got an open window.
    This seems to be a glitch with the latest software release.

    Thanks

  20. Tab forces viewport to jump when panels are docked

    When you have a complex document and panels docked, it takes a lot of time to hide them with Tab because the position of the viewport is moved. It does not happen when all panels are floating.

    1. Load Essentials Classic workspace
    2. Open any document with art in it (the more complex the better)
    3. Press Tab — viewport moves (and it is slow!)
    4. Press Tab again to show all panels
    5. Undock every panel and toolbars to make them float (including Control panel)
    6. Press Tab — viewports stays in place (and it is almost instant!)

    So the position of viewport should not…
