  1. New File and Help Tabs Not Working

    This is not an idea, it's a bug in the system. The 'File -> New' command does not work. If I click 'File -> New', it brings up a new window that remains black and does nothing. I found a work around. If I check the use 'legacy "File New" interface' box In the 'Edit -> Preferences -> General' dialog, only then will it allow me to create a new document.

    I can, however, upon initially opening illustrator, create a new document. But say i'm working on a project and I want to create a new document with the 'File…

  2. Pressing Tab to Show All Palettes focuses a random third-party extension’s input on Windows

    Reported by Enisio:

    I use the Tab key a lot to hide/show panels, to instantly clear the panel clutter on the screen.
    Pressing Tab activates RANDOM extension.

    This is bad, because I work with shortcut keys: T is for writingS for Scale, R for rotation, etc.
    When an extension gets focused, I can’t call the tool I need and type something in the extension panel instead.

    Same thing with all the extensions below. I think all extensions behave this way. Has anyone ever paid attention?

  3. Swatches panel does not remember the size of chips when toggling List / Thumbnails view

    When I choose to display Large Thumbnail View in Swatches panel’s flyout menu, I expect Ai to respect my size choice and remember it, when I use the two buttons in the panel itself to switch List / Thumbnails modes.

    Instead, Illustrator forces it to Small (which can be OK, since I never chose the List to be large) and does not even remember my previous choice when I switch back (which is totally not OK).

    See the GIF, please.

  4. プロパティパネル等のテキストボックス内のテキストが切れる

    macOS11.6.8・Windows10Pro 21H2
    ver.27.5

    プロパティパネル等のテキストボックスに入力の際、テキストがボックス内に収まらず数値を確認しずらい。環境設定でUIスケールを小さくすると表示はましになるが、一部がテキストボックスのエッジにかかってしまう。UIスケールを大きくするとベースラインが大きくシフトし上部が3割程度隠れてしまう。

    再現手順
    1.ドキュメントを開く
    2.プロパティパネルを開き、ドキュメント上のオブジェクトを選択する。
    3.パネル内のテキストボックスの数値の上部または下部が切れて表示される。

    期待する結果
    各テキストボックス内の数値が切れずに表示される。

    現状
    テキストボックス内の数値が切れて表示される。

    これは、以前からの不具合でUIの設計が元々欧文フォントで行われ、ローカライズの際に日本語フォントに置き換えた際に日本語フォントに最適化されない事が原因ではないかと考えます。以下のコミュニティーページに参考になる情報があります。

  5. BUG: View Grid (Dots 1px) Freezes Illustrator

    Using a document grid using dots in small intervals (10px or 1 px intervals) makes Illustrator super slow or even stops working.

    Bug appeared in 25.3.1 and is still present in 25.4.1. Tested on multiple Macs (Catalina + Big Sur).

  8. Pixel preview is not aligned with non-pixel preview

    I make icons sometimes. I need to check them for pixel-perfection using cmd opt y (pixel preview). When I do that, I expect (and I believe Illustrator used to work this way) that the preview remains in the same place at the same scale so that I can meaningful toggle in and out of pixel preview to compare the vector shape with the pixel result. But when I do this using the keyboard shortcut noted above, the artwork jumps up and down both in scale and location on the screen. The repro steps are simple:
    1. Create a shape that…

  9. Panels don't open with Application Frame turned off

    On MacOS, when Application Frame is turned off, and Window panels (ex: Layers, Artboards, Swatches, etc.) are condensed, the Window panels will not appear when clicked on. They only work if Application Frame is on.

  10. All toolbars gone - Illustrator CC 2019

    As soon as I open the Illustrator today, every toolbar was lost. Even if I click the workspace presets, it doesn't do anything. I already returned all the lost tool bars manually but when I opened Ai, they're gone again. Please fix this. Thank you.

  11. Workspace Bug

    Have a strange bug. Have Dual Cinema displays with all of my palettes on one monitor. Saved workspace for this configuration. If I click to toggle between fill/stroke it resets my workspace and moves all of my palettes over to my first monitor but only in the bottom right 1/4 of the screen. If i hit "x' to toggle between fill/stroke this doesn't happen.

  13. Precision touchpad scroll jittering

    On my XPS 13 9360, I am having issues when scrolling horizontally or vertically. The scrolling is not fluid; when scrolling at low speeds, the canvas actually scrolls the incorrect direction. This is present in dropdown menus as well. It seems like there are two scrolling actions that are fighting each other, but I am not sure.

  14. Zooming malfunction when switching between windows.

    This occurs when I have multiple documents open in tabs. When I switch between tabs and scroll to zoom, it zooms in the previously opened tab, but not the current one. If I click within the document, then I can start zooming normally again.

  15. Right Click does not work

    This is not an idea, it is a bug complaint! My right click does not work on Illustrator on anything. I just downloaded the latest version of Adobe Illustrator Version 2017 21.1.0 in hopes to correct the "right clicking" issue that was in my older version (version prior to 21.1.0). I've uninstalled and reinstalled the program and the same problem still persist. My right click does not work! This is slowing down my work and it's definitely not time efficient. Help me fix this now!

  16. Drop down menus stop working

    Drop down menus will stop working at random. For example, the weight menu under the character panel will not drop down. However, if for example I have my font set to "Black", although I cannot use the drop down menu, I can select the word "Black" and type "Bold" and it will switch the font to bold.

    This happens with various menus throughout the software. I have not been able to fix it. Even after quitting the program and restarting my computer the issues persists.

  17. Transform Pattern Tiles Checkbox in Settings resets after applying Transofm Effect in Appearance Panel

    Hi there!
    When you check "Transform Pattern Tiles" in Settings, and after that - edit or apply the Transform effect in the Appearance panel without checking "Transform Patterns" in the Transform Effect window (even if you are not editing a pattern fill), the "Transform Pattern Tiles" checkbox in Settings resets.

    You don't think about Patterns when you are editing not a pattern fill. So it's insanely inconvenient.

  20. Dialog windows move / float to the left

    Bug Report: Floating windows drift offscreen (see attached video).
    Adobe Illustrator 26.4

    I tried reverting to older versions of Adobe Illustrator, but the issue exists for them as well; To me, that suggests the problem is related to the beta macOS. I am raising this bug now because the issue could present itself as users upgrade to macOS Ventura this fall.

    System Info:
    I am running MacOS, Ventura, Version 13.0 Beta (22A5311f) on iMac M1 (2021) with 8MB RAM.
