  3. Properties panel showing wrong properties and text attributes all the time

    Properties panel don't reflect correct properties and font kerning and size were not reflecting in the the properties box. Changing a text box affects another text and not the selected text. An yes, I have the latest version and have replaced preferences many times.

  5. Object size change?

    Now, the transformation panel reflects the size of a shape plus the thickness of the outline if there is one.
    For example, a rectangle of 100x100 with an outline (in the middle) of 1 displays a size of 101x101, 102x102 if the outline is external and 100x100 if the outline is internal.
    It's a very confusing change! The previous behavior was much more talkative.
    I understand that this reflects the actual size, including the outline thickness, but this should be an option. I did not see myself 3 decimal digits when I want a rectangle of 100x100! :)

  6. Properties Panel and Transform Panel measurements should be exactly the same not rounded in the Properties Panel

    Properties Panel and Transform Panel measurements should be exactly the same not rounded in the Properties Panel.

    Properties Panel rounds measurements to .000 decimal places but the transform panel allows .0000 four decimal places. This is inconsistent and is confusing to my team trying to double check our files for accuracy.

  8. Illustrator CC 2019 v23.0 Divide tool not working

    I'm running on a iMac Pro (2017) Mojave OS 10.14 and using Illustrator CC 2019 v23.0. I've tried using the divide tool via the Pathfinder panel as well as the new Properties Panel and neither will work. Typically it would divide the two patterns top and bottom and now it just leaves the patterns as is without dividing. I also have used the guides to divide a pattern and that is not working either.

  9. layer

    The layers panel does not work. You cannot turn layer visibility on or off. Even enable / disable the panel itself. It is necessary to correct this error!

  11. Maintain width and Height Proportions bug

    This has been a bug for at least a version or two: draw a shape, go to transform it in the Properties panel, and even though the "Maintain width and Height Properties" icon indicates "not constrained", adjusting one of the dimensions adjusts the other proportionally. This seems to happen only in a fresh file (perhaps fresh launch of Illustrator), and once I click and unclick the Constrain button once, it doesn't recur in that session.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/u0gqadn2lezzq7n/Constraint%20bug.mov?dl=0

    So in the screen grab above, I draw a box freehand, then in the Properties panel, begin adjusting the height with my arrow keys.…

  12. "Apply value and keep text box active" using key command Shift + Return does not work on Mac OS

    when you change something in the Character panel... for example the tracking... and you want to keep trying new values without selecting the field every time you used to be able to hit Shift + Return and it would automatically highlight the field while applying the current value... this made it easy to continue to try new amounts. PLEASE FIX THIS!!! Thanks

  13. panel stuck under menubar

    When Ai is displayed on a secondary monitor, if that second monitor is off and than on again, all properties panel moved back to the primary display, some of them being stuck under the Mac OS menubar--where it becomes impossible to move the panels again. Fixes include choosing a fresh unused workspace, but repeating the sequence damages that workspace. Also workspaces saved while using a second monitor don't honor that layout when selected again.
    Please fix! Thank you.

  14. Line thickness changes automatically?

    When i want to choose the thickness for a line for example 0.25 mm / 0,25 mm AI automatically turns it into 25 mm.
    In Denmark we use " , " and in USA they use " . " for decimals. I'm pretty sure.
    I have Windows 10 whit english UI but danish system settings and Danish keyboard. And all my Adobe products in English or US. I'm not sure.

  15. transform panel units differerent than property panel transform

    Transform panel reads in inches as it should but in the properties panel the transform panel shows points. Latest version of Illustrator CC2018, Windows 7. Also if the values are unlinked to resize only 1 dimension both still change.

  16. Shape panel measurements vs. Transform panel measurements

    The measurements (width and height) on the Shape panel are inverted compared to the measurements on the Transform panel. The transform panel shows the correct measurements, but no the Space panel. Please fix so that both panels have the same measurement.

  17. Transform Panel – Nudge using arrow keys problem

    In investigating my own question from in the user forum (https://forums.adobe.com/message/10238447#) I discovered that there is a disconnect between the Transform panel that is embedded in the properties panel and the Transform panel that you access via the Window dropdown.

    The free floating TRANSFORM panel you access from the Window dropdown works just like it always did... when I put my cursor in the X, Y, W or H and click an up or down arrow key it first rounds to the nearest .125" then increases or decreases .125" at a time (assuming the units are set to

  18. Palettes/Panels are broken all over!

    This is not just in AI. It's in PS, and ID as well. Can't make selections in pull down menus. It keeps reverting back to the default. Can't enter values in fields and use tab to move to the next field. Awfully annoying! What I want to know is what was the QC department doing before releasing this terrible package?

  19. Illustrator has bugs to support variable font with 3 attributes

    This is a sample font which to demo the variable font has 3 attributes (weight/height/Optical Size).

    If use Illustrator's Character panel to adjust the height attributes, the weight attributes would no work.
