  1. Can't create 4th artboard

    Everytime i try to add artboards, somewhat AI skip 4th artboards, and just straight to 5th artboard, so when i add artboards again, there would be 2 5th artboard, and only the second one exported (if it exported)

  4. New document size - selection problem

    When creating a new document, you cannot click into width or height box and select as one and overwrite - previously you could do this.

    You have to use backspace - incredibly irritating. Please fix.

  11. Art Brushes offset in Large Canvas documents

    Reproducible in Illustrator 25.0.1 and 24.3, Windows 10.

    In Large Canvas documents, art brushes appear offset from the path they are applied to. The effect is more pronounced with larger stroke sizes and larger brush objects.

    1. Create a large canvas document (an artboard with at least one dimension larger than 16383 points)
    2. Create an art brush, or use one from a library.
    3. Draw a path and apply the art brush.
    4. The art brush is offset from the path by an amount that increases as stroke size is increased.

    Expected result: in normal (sub-16383 pt) documents, the art brush is centred…

  12. Can no longer create new file from scratch

    Illustrator v 25.0 desktop on PC won't let me create new files from scratch or with preset details. It's forcing me to download templates to work from.

    Illustrator v 25.0 desktop on iMac works fine.

  14. Graphics do not show when document is opened, only in preview

    When I open a document with several artboards that was created in the 2019 edition of Illustrator I can see all images in the preview - but when I open the document there are only empty artboards. How can I avoid recreating all my artwork?
    My Illustrator is updated to the latest edition and the technicians have deleted all previous versions. My computer has 16 GB RAM, x-64 and runs the Windows 10 pro.

  15. spostare un qualsiasi oggetto

    Ho appena aggiornato la versione ad Illustrator 25.0, ho aperto un file pdf e risalvato in formato illustrator, peccato che quando voglio spostare un blocco di oggetti o anche uno solo mi dice che non posso perché è IMPOSSIBILE la modifica potrebbe rendere alcuni degli oggetti troppo grandi. Come la risolvo?

  16. Items cannot be centered in artboard

    I am selecting an artboard. Then selecting my item. When I try to center them using Horizontal/Vertical Align Center, my item completely ignores my artboard (and any other artboard for that matter) and positions itself randomly.

    Version 25.0

    This feature is essential for us since we need to center dozens of icons for export.

  17. Quick Preview on Mac is not Working

    On Mac with the new Big Sur update, my Illustrator files show up as just the Illustrator logo and it does not preview any artboards.

    Also, when pressing the spacebar, a wheel starts turning, then just the logo pops up. There is no file preview it seems after the Big Sur update.

  19. Lineal nach Zeichenflächenänderung von Hoch- zu Querformat nicht angepasst

    Windows 10,
    Illustrator 25.0 (64bit).

    Ich habe ein neues Dokument erstellt in A3. Danach habe ich die Zeichenfläche von Hochformat auf Querformat gestellt, indem ich doppelt auf die Zeichenfläche im Zeichenflächenwerkzeug klicke und das Symbol für Querformat anklicke, danach okay. Die Zeichenfläche wurde gedreht.
    Nun wollte ich Hilfslinien als Rahmen einfügen und habe dazu das Lineal eingeblendet. Ich erwartete, dass das Lineal anzeigt, dass links oben meiner Zeichenfläche sowohl x als auch y 0 ist. Das Lineal hat sich jedoch nicht mitgedreht und die 0 liegt außerhalb meiner Zeichenfläche, nämlich genau dort, wo es länge, wenn die Zeichenfläche im Hochformat…
