  2. x y coordinates

    when making a file exact art size. Trying to snap to my
    X=0
    Y=0

    the Transform pallet says i'm at 0 & 0 but clearly i am not and once i click off everything then re-select everything again i can make it 0&0. I am in a pre-press production setting and this slows down my whole process. Also the Align to Artboard selection is a huge problem.

  3. Realign Canvas function blurs artwork

    When using the function to realign/sort canvases — including the embedded artwork — the artwork is placed on subpixels, although it was pixel perfect before. This bug appears in the pixel-preview mode, no matter when on CPU or GPU mode.

  4. "File --> New" or "Ctrl+N" fails to create new file in Illustrator 22.0.1 (64-bit)

    After opening Illustrator, I'm only able to open existing files. Trying to create a new file by clicking "File --> New" in the menu, or clicking "Ctrl+N" results in a brief pause, but no new artboard or new file appears.

    Need More Info  ·  Anish Kumar responded

    Hi,

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    I am not able to reproduce the issue on my side. Are you still able to reproduce this consistently on latest version of Illustrator?

    If yes please share a small video of the same at sharewithai@adobe.com so I can further investigate it.

    Please do mention the link of this thread so we can identify you. Govind from our team will help you on this.

  6. Changing the default unit setting revert back to point to inch.

    I can't change the default units. When I change the unit in General from inc to Point. Illustrator reverts it back to the inc again when I restart the illustrator. This is super annoying. Please don't need to upgrade the feature of illustrator just fix the existing ones and give us a bug-free application.

  7. Cmd-Shift-A selects all artboards

    Cmd-Shift-A usually deselects all. But while the Artboard tool is selected, the same shortcut selects all… the same as pressing Cmd-A.

  8. Move dialogue is broken when Y-axis is flipped

    Problem Description:
    Since AI team had Y-axis flipped, users who want to keep it the old way have to manually set flags in prefs file to undo these changes:
    /isRulerIn4thQuad 0
    /isRulerOriginTopLeft 0

    It works fine except it breaks setting negative distance in Move dialogue.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Change said flags to 1
    2. Relaunch AI
    3. Create and select an object
    4. Press Enter to invoke Move dialogue
    5. Set vertical position to any positive number and apply
    6. Invoke dialogue again
    7. Set same vertical value, but negative (you can also select any other object before that)…

  9. New Artboard Decimal Rounding

    Illustrator 2015.3.1

    Created a new document, set artboard to 3.375 x 2.125 with .125 inch bleed. Dialog box rounds to 2 decimal places as usual, but I expect that it honors the 3 decimal input. Save document as PDF, place into InDesign using Bleed box, am surprised to discover that document places at dimensions of 3.63 x 2.38.

    Further testing shows that if I enter the proper dimensions with the artboard tool after creating the document, then it honors the 3 decimal places. So it is only the new document dialog that is actually rounding the dimensions.

  10. Artboard edge shows behind an object of the same size as the artboard

    1. CC 22.0.1 (32-bit)
    2. I'm creating a favicon, I started out at 164 px by 164 px and used Shift + Alt to resize it to 50 px by 50 px. Then I changed the size of the Artboard to 50 px by 50 px.
    3. I expected everything to line up and look right.
    4. A small white edge of the Artboard is visible on the right side of the drawing

  11. Empty artboard name which changes itself when artboard is resized

    I have a simple template for business card, made long ago, with a single artboard inside.
    Today I created new document based on this template and AI22 has shown this single artboard with no name (which was never touched in template and always was default 'Artboard 1'). It displays as 'Artboard 1' in Artboards paleette, but tag is missing.
    Next, when I add height to this artboard in Control panel, it got renamed to 'Artboard 2', both in tag and palette.
    If I undo this and make change again, it got 'Artboard 3' and so on.
    I expect this artboard…

  12. Align to Artboard: X and Y position not established within the active artboard

    Illustrator CC 22.0.1

    Align to Artboard: X and Y position not established within the active artboard but retains the global X and Y position.

    When selecting and copying the X position of vertex (A) on active artboard (A), then activating another artboard (B) and selecting vertex (B). When pasting the X position for vertex (A) from artboard (A) to vertex (B) on artboard (B) it pastes the global X position. The previous version retained the local artboard X position when align to artboard was activated. Which is very helpful in maintaining consistency between artboards.

  13. Artboard size not working

    Hi,
    Having issues with artboards, including some listed earlier. Today's new issue:

    Created an artboard 490px x 490px. Instead the artboard size is 490px x 489.6px.

    Try to resize artboard, but the action doesn't take. See video.

    Illustrator CC 2018 20.0.1

    Thanks,
    Carla

  14. Incorrect file sizes

    Importing work into After Effects adds 6 pixels to the file size — very generous. This software keeps on giving.

  16. Fit to window (apple-0) doesn't take into rulers into account

    Using 'fit artboard to window' on mac Illustrator 2018 doesn't work properly if rulers are shown.
    Expected: whole artwork to be shown, fit to window.
    Result: top of artwork is 'cropped off' by rulers if they are shown. If rulers are hidden, 'fit to window' works as expected.

  19. Artboart Size arrow key increment not working for the width

    when resizing the artboard using the 'Artboard options' panel it is possible to increment the size using the arrow keys, one MM at a time for example. This feature now only works intermittently for the width field. It is still possible to change the number and the artboard will adjust.

  20. Minor Bug (Smart Guides on/off)

    When opening/creating a new document,

    the View > Smart Guides will be checked on. But they are not actually on. You have to turn them on/off a couple times to actually get them working. At first I thought that they were altered or removed from the last update. Fortunately I figured it out!
