  1. 'Export as' SVG No Longer Includes Width/Height on Embedded Images

    When exporting an AI file with an embedded PNG screenshot (added via File > Place) as an SVG, the <image> tag in the exported SVG file is no longer being created with "width" and "height" attributes.

    This creates an error when trying to use the exported SVG in XMLmind (which states that there is no width attribute on the <image> tag), and I imagine in other contexts as well.

    We're on an enterprise cloud subscription of Illustrator, so at any given time we're working with the most up-to-date version. In a similar file I exported to SVG back in January…

  2. Unembeding image to .PSD change resolution

    I noticed recently that on my new MacBookPro 16 - M1 Max on macOS 12.1 Monterey, with AI 26.0.2 when I unembed an image to .PSD format, the extracted image is resampled and the résolution is changed. Only PSD format does that. Choosing TIF is working as expected.

    This is not happening on my old MacBook running the same AI version but on macOS Catalina.

    So I don’t know where the bug is: On Monterey or in the M1Max Chip.

  3. Relink no longer works in most recent Illustrator

    When I update links outside Illustrator, Illustrator no longer shows the links with the recycle icon. The relink button in the links panel is greyed out. The only way is to manually relink the files rather than the nice refresh there used to be! This is very time consuming!

    Need More Info  ·  PCM Maro responded

    Illustrator 製品版フィードバックにご協力いただきありがとうございます。

    ご報告いただいた「PhotoshopEPS 画像を配置するとサイズが大きくなる」という現象ですが、再現できませんでした。

    Photoshop の画像解像度ダイアログで「幅、高さ、解像度」が同じデータを各種画像形式で保存し、Illustrator 2022 に配置した場合は、同じサイズで読み込まれています。

    いくつか質問させていただきます。

    1. Illustrator 2022 では、全ての Photoshop EPS 画像ファイルで同じ現象が再現しますか? (リンク、埋め込み)

    2. Illustrator 2021 で新規ドキュメントを作成し、同じデータを配置しても問題ありませんか?

    3. 各画像データを Photoshop で開いて画像解像度ダイアログで確認しても、同じサイズ設定ですか?

    4. 確認しても「幅、高さ、解像度」が同じ画像データにも関わらず、やはり Illustrator への配置サイズが変わってしまうようでしたら、問題のデータを検証用にご提供いただけますか?

    以上、お手数をおかけいたしますがよろしくお願いいたします。

  5. Windows

    1 Windows 10 Pro バージョン20H2/プロセッサ Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-10875H CPU @ 2.30GHz/実装RAM 32.0 GB (31.8 GB 使用可能)/64 ビット オペレーティング システム、x64 ベース プロセッサ

    2 Illustrator2021で作成したデータを2022(最新版)で開き、デザインのバリエーションの作成を行おうとした。配置されている画像は2つ。うち1点の差し替えを行った。(Photoshopデータのリンクを変更)。差し替えた画像の大きさを変更するため、リサイズを行ったところ、アプリケーションがクラッシュ。復元データにより、1つ前の手順まではデータが残っており、作業の続行ができた。が、再び同じ作業(配置画像のリサイズ)でクラッシュ。
    3 続行したデータを開き直し、もう一度作業のやり直しをしようと思った。
    4 2つのリンク画像が消失した。『「」というリンクファイルが見つかりません』というアラートが繰り返し出る(「」というファイル名をつけたことはない)。エラーの起きていなかった配置画像も消失し、リンク情報そのものが消えてしまった。
    5 エラーの起きたデータを添付します。確認のため、開き直しているので日付がエラーの起きた当時のものではなく、本日のものに書き換わっているようですが、保存はせずに閉じています。

    日本語担当の PCM Maro です。
    すでに再編集で問題が解決されているとのことですが、いくつか補足説明させていただきます。

    『「」というリンクファイルが見つかりません』というアラートの「」ですが、本来ならばカッコ内にリンクファイル名が表示されるのですが、クラッシュにより、ファイル情報が欠落してしまったと思われます。(通常はリンク切れでもファイル情報は保存されています)

    今後、クラッシュが発生するような場合は、クラッシュ後に表示されるクラッシュレポートの送信機能をご利用ください。
    また、クラッシュの再現手順が明確であるような場合は、こちらの UserVoice にご登録ください。

    こちらのレポートは対応終了とさせていただきますが、コメントはオープンしておきますので、追加情報があるような場合は、コメントをお寄せください。

    今後ともよろしくお願いいたします。

  6. 配置画像のリンク切れ

    macOS Big Sur ver.11.5.2 Illustrator ver.25.3.1 M1Universal

    intele MacでパッケージをしたデータをIllustrator ver.25.3.1 M1Universalで開くと画像のリンクが全て外れます。
    またリンクフォルダから1つ配置し直すと本来は全て自動的に読み込み再リンクされますが、これもされず全画像リンク処理をしなければなりません。
    改善策をおしえてください。

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Cannot place a bitmap TIFF into Illustrator (24.3 or 25.2)

    MacOS Catalina 10.15.4
    AI 24.3, 25.2

    I am unable to place any bitmap TIFF into the two latest versions of Illustrator. I tried two different versions of the file at two different dimensions and file-sizes.

    I get the dialogue: "Illustrator could not read the file [Filename]. Try replacing this with another valid link.

    I have never had this issue before. I tried a workaround wherein I open the TIFF directly in AI, and then copy/paste to my target file. However, the file is embedded and for large format work, this is not an acceptable workflow.

    Please help. TIA

  11. 1 bit TIFF files still importing inverted after all these years

    It's been a while since I needed to import a 1 bit tiff file into Illustrator (maybe two years?) And I was so surprised to see this problem still occurs even in version 24.0.3

    Does anyone know a fix bedside inverting it in Photoshop before importing it?
    This is a no go, because when people open the file who aren't experiencing the the problem, it's wrong again.

  15. Color profiles are silently discarded for the placed screenshot thumbnails on Mac

    Can we fix the strange discarding of the color profile when dragging a screenshot thumbnail into an open Illustrator document (Mas OS — Command+shift+4, or Command+shift+3, or Command+shift+5). The thumbnail appears in the corner of the screen prior to the screenshot being saved to the Desktop.

    Using File>Place, or copying/pasting from any other program, or even dragging and dropping a screenshot from the desktop or other folder all cue a warning if there is a profile mismatch. And to my experience, placing in any of those ways does not change the document profile, regardless of what I choose when the…

  16. Replacing or updating an image often results in crashes

    Mac mini
    Apple M2 Pro
    32 GB

    Replacing or updating an image often results in crashes.
    Before crashing, it loses the preview and can't be restored until closing and reopening the file. But even so, the crash is coming.

  17. Can't Link PDF

    Cannot link PDF into an AI file. When opening the file an Unknown error is detected. Help us investigate further....
    However opening Illustrator in a Intel based version on the M1 mac it will open without issue. However as this feature apparently is going to be removed it will cause major issues for me.
    This needs to be fixed.

  19. Using blending modes with embedded images now gives darker colors

    In version 28 transparency in embedded images doesn't work the same way it worked in version 27, thus making impossible to use older files with the new version.
    Transparency (as in soft light, overlay...) gives a different result, usually darker, flatter.
    Looks like the issue is with embedded images, not linked, but since I need to use images in patterns I need to embed them.
