  1. PARM error with embedded image

    iMac OS Catalina 10.15.7
    Adobe Illustrator 25.4.1

    I get an PARM error when selecting an embedded image and clicking the "Edición" menu (Edit in spanish).
    After clicking the OK button I can then access all the "Edit" menu options as usual.

    Please fix this annoying behaviour.

    Thanks,
    Guille

  2. Placed images vanish

    When system (Windows) crashes with Illustrator open, any placed or linked images are missing in the recovery file, thus rendering it unusable.
    Warning appears, asking me to relink " " file (even if the linked file has a name), which I can't do due to missing information. Link palette is not displaying any information on what file it was either.
    I have never seen this bug before, but it has happened the last two times for me, and is very unfortunate.

    Windows 10 Enterprise
    Illustrator CC 25.2.1

  4. Illustrator v 25.3.1 on Mac Big Sur 11.4 Drag n drop multiple photos not dropping

    Adobe support support recommended I post here. When dragging multiple images from Photos, it grabs all images, but only drops 1 image. Copy and paste doesn't work either.

  5. Placed image was resized automatically

    I had encounter the issue where the aspect ratio (heights and width) of the placed images .psd was changed when the same file was reopen.

    As attached, 1.png was the originally placed image size.
    After the file was closed and reopen, the aspect ration of the image changed as shown in 2.png

    Please note that the original image was not edited in any way.

  7. Illustrator links are broken upon document recovery

    After suffering through terrible support through the chat in Adobe Admin Console (basically just telling me that I'm wrong), I've been redirected here.

    Here's the bug:

    In Illustrator 24.1.X, all links will be broken when you try to open a recovered document. This does not happen in 24.0.X

    How to reproduce:

    Create an AI File

    Link a png from the 'Links' folder next to it

    Save it

    Make an edit and let it Auto Save

    Force Close AI

    Open the 'recovered' file when it asks me

    You are met with this:

    'Could not find a plug-in to read the linked…

  8. Raster images should always honor the layer order and transparency values when scaling/moving/rotating

    When moving/rotating/scaling Raster images should always honor the layer order and transparency values.

    With "show images in outline mode" selected, I often drop in low res raster images on the bottom layer and outline them with the pen tool in higher level layers.. problem is the way illustrator handles raster images. If i draw a line on top of a raster image, then attempt to scale that raster image, my line is temporarily hidden while scaling, moving or rotating the raster image, making it nearly impossible to re-align my raster image to match newly drawn vector lines. Also, raster images…

  9. The operation cannot complete because of an unknown error. CANT

    Since the last update.. Every time I try to trace & make something. I get this error message "The operation cannot complete because of an unknown error. CANT" then the placed image I tried to trace disappears and only an empty selection box remains. If i do "undo" the image will return. How come I cannot trace anymore? What can I do to fix it?
