  1. Bug deletou todo o arquivo que estava salvo no pc anteriormente

    Eu estava trabalhando no arquivo há 6 horas, salvando tranquilamente, quando transformei em traçado uma imagem tudo ficou branco como se tivesse deletado tudo. Fechei e abri de novo sem salvar, quando o arquivo abriu veio todo em branco.

  2. "The file is not readable" Can't paste image into Illustrator without saving it to computer

    When I try to paste an image I copied from pinterest/google etc, it always shows "the file is not readable". Now I have to save every image I want and then drag and drop/place it in illustrator. Which is an additional step I don't need and is very frustrating.

    I've never had this problem before. Can anyone help?

  3. Schwarze Rechtecke statt eingefügter Bilder / Placed images turn black

    AI 2.7
    Mac OS Monterey

    Die meissten der eingebetteten Bilder (tifs und pngs) werden plötzlich nur noch als schwarze Rechtecke dargestellt.
    Keine Problemlösung nach Neustart.
    Da es sich um mehr als 50 Bilder handelt wäre ein neu einrichten aller Bilddateien eine Mammut-Aufgabe.
    Was kann ich tun?

  4. Bitmap images change color

    I'm using Illustrator 27.4.1 on Mac OS Ventura 13.2, but I've had this problem for several years.

    I link to 1-bit BMPs and color them with a swatch.

    When I have multiple BMPs using multiple colors, the preview will often change to one of the other swatches. It does not export this way, but makes it a challenge to design.

    The fill color is still displayed in the toolbar correctly, but previews incorrectly until I swap the fill and stroke color twice. When i click somewhere else it will change again. In the screen recording, the bottom bmps should be…

  5. Illustrator turning PNG images yellow/purple / inverted

    Running Illustrator 27.4.1 on Mac OS Ventura 13.2.1.

    Having this issue with clear PNGs on Illustrator. The PNGs look okay when placed on the file. Upon re-opening of the file, all of the clear PNGs have turned negative, having a purple filter/yellow background.

  6. EPS color bug

    Adobe illustrator keeps changing the colors of .eps images that I link. Both profiles are set to RGB so that should not be a problem.

  7. File adding images unnecassarily in file

    When i reopen a file, illustrator has duplicated and randomly placed (and sized) images from within the file or even doubled the link that was in place. It adds an additional image for each link in the file and also asks them to be relinked! Very frustrating having to look through and clean up the file.

  8. rotating and croping causing jagged banding

    Rotating and croping an image leads to an odd banding pattern appearing through the image. This does not occur when clipping using a clipping mask or when only cropped or only rotated.

  11. 画像を置き換えで配置すると、操作がおかしくなる

    私だけですか?例えば、WEB製作中、スライダーの画像をいくつか選ぼうとします。1つマスクをかけて、作成します。
    それをコピーして、一つは候補として置いておき、1つの画像を選択し、候補の画像を入れ替えます。ほぼ、1回、前回は2回でそれ以降、イラレがスムーズに機能しなくなります。
    WEB制作で仕事で使っているので非常に困惑しています。
    本日バージョンアップしたのに、治ってなくてがっかり。

  12. place individual PSD layers into ILLUSTRATOR as LINKED files like Indesign

    Placing individual psd layers in Illustrator is a joke compared to Indesign.

    When trying to place a linked and layered psd file in Illustrator you get NO 'options' (even when 'options' is selected in the dialogue box when placing/importing.)

    You have to have 'link' turned off in the dialogue box in order to see the 'options' and even then the psd layers just come in as embedded shapes WHICH AREN'T linked but embedded instead. When you then unembed/link them, NEW .psd files are then created instead of linking back to the original .psd files.

    The Adobe online instructions mention that…

  14. Linked Files Crop changing when reopening a file

    I linked .ai files placed with a "bounding box" crop from the import options. When this file with the linked file is closed and reopened, the links already placed automatically switch to a "media" crop. This causes the linked file to appear much smaller.

  16. Image trace limited palette no longer works in AI 27.1

    Image trace does not use a limited palette when this option is specified in the tracing options.

    Steps:

    1. Place photographic or other image with many colours
    2. Choose any of the limited colour presets (16 in this example) and trace

    Expected result: Trace uses the specified number of colours
    Actual result: Trace acts as if 'Automatic' was selected (or otherwise disregards limited palette)

  18. Object being selected without mouse even being over said object

    I really don't know how to best describe this issue, but an object placed in my file is being selected when I click within a radius around the object, but not actually on it. It's a very strange issue and makes it difficult for me to select things around the object.

    See video for clarification (logo blurred because this is a clients project).

  20. preview for tif images does not change after embedding

    I use Illustrator 2023 27.0 on Mac book pro with macOS Monterey Version 12.5. When placing tif images the preview shows a low resolution image (individual pixels are blurry). This should normally be corrected once the image is embedded. But in the case of tif images this does not work it stays in the preview stage even after embedding. However, when printed it shows the correct image. Therefore there seems to be a bug which does not show the correct state of tif images after embedding. This bug is specific for tif images since it does not show the same…
