  1. 'Send to current layer' command is disabled when art across several layers is selected

    I don't understand why it's limited, I can't see logic behind that, so I put it in Bugs, rather then Ideas.

    See, I have some stuff in different layers. I select it, choose a layer, press a hotkey, I intend to collect it all in the selected layer, but nothing happens. WHY?

    I have 'Collect in new layer' in Palette menu, but I have no hotkey for it (you guys do everything with mouse? really?) and i don't need a NEW layer, I need existing and selected one, and I have a command for it — ''Send to current layer'…

  2. Layer Arrow Disappears

    When collapsing sub-layers of a layer, the arrow to expand the sub-layers is no longer visible. Clicking the eye would restore the arrow, but this is a bug that should be fixed.

  3. marquee selects empty layers

    We are using a document template with nested layers (i.e. all layers are in correct order and properly named before drawing starts)
    Marqueeing objects unfortunately selects some empty layers besides those that lead to the artwork. The document info displays the selection correctly, and the attribute panel reports differing notes

  5. Toggling Layer Visibility Causes Hang

    Toggling layer visibility seems to be increasingly difficult for my latest release of the standard Illustrator build. I just tried a complete uninstall/reinstall, and the problem persists. Once I toggle layers on/off without any other active layer visible I get the Mac beach ball/spinning wheel. If I add a blank placeholder layer I have no issues toggling as shown below. This is the current release of Illustrator. I can share one of these files to see if it is setting related or cannot be reproduced, but I had this same issue on a much higher spec’d out PC than my…

  6. Phantom/stuck bounding box

    Bounding box appears in unusual places when I'm grouping/ungrouping. Then it gets stuck. I cant deselect it, delete, move, un/group, etc. It stays put and I can't get rid of it. Even when undoing my previous actions.

  7. fix 'sticky' text boxes within sublayers

    Fire up Illustrator 22.0 or 22.1 and create a new document.

    Select the Text tool and draw a rectangular area. Fill it with placeholder text. Select the Rectangle tool and draw a filled rectangle (non-overlapping, though it doesn't matter).

    Double click some word in the text box and start typing. Then in the Layers panel, click the 'select art' square corresponding to the filled rectangle. The rectangle becomes selected and the text box is deselected and all is good and well.

    Deselect everything, hilight the rectangle and textbox objects in the Layers panel, and "Collect in New Layer". This puts…

  8. Layer's options display 'Dim Images' turned on when it's off

    1. Go to Layer Options
    2. Enable 'Template' option
    3. Uncheck 'Dim Images to' option
    4. Hit OK
    5. Go to Layer Options again
    6. 'Dim Images' is on by itself, despite I turned it off in step 3

  9. Quitte inopinément

    Avec le système monterey sur un iMac neuf et récent ainsi que sur iPad M1 neuf, l’appli quitte à la moindre action dès lors qu il y a plusieurs calques. Impossible de travailler professionnellement comme avant. Il s’agit peut-être d’une incompatibilité système et nécessite une mise à jour d’urgence.

  10. Paste Remembers Layers

    Updated Illustrator to version 26.0 a day or two ago.

    Continued working in a document created before this. The option "Paste Remembers Layers" is checked but when pasting the artwork it isn't pasted in the sublayers I copied them from.

    Instead all the artwork elements I've copied pastes in the main layer of said sublayers when I try to paste to a different artboard. (all within the same document). When I paste on the same artboard I've copied from it will paste into the top sublayer.

  11. Ctrl+](前面へ移動)を入力すると、稀に選択したオブジェクトが右方向に移動する

    OS:Windows10
    Illustrator v25.4.1とv26.0.1 両方で確認

    JISキーボードにおいて、初期設定では「前面に移動」で登録されているCtrl+]キーを入力すると、稀に選択中のオブジェクトが前面に移動すると同時に右方向へずれる(→キーを入力した時と同じ)挙動をする現象を確認しました。

    キーボード操作だとCtrlキーと]キーを同時に連打すると稀に起き、サードパーティ製のキー入力デバイスで"Ctrl+]"と同時入力するよう設定し機械的に入力すると、より確実に同様の現象が起きます。

    Need More Info  ·  PCM Maro responded

    Illustrator 製品版フィードバックへのご協力ありがとうございます。

    ご報告いただきました現象につきまして検証した結果、以下のような結果が得られました。

    ・「Ctrl」キーと「]」キーを同時ではなく、交互に何度も押し続けると選択されたオブジェクトが右方向へ移動する。

    ・1 秒間に 3 回程度の速度で、交互にキーを押し続けると再現しやすい。

    ・「Ctrl」キーと「[」キーの場合に左へ移動などの現象は発生しない。

    ・macOS では再現しない。

    以上の再現方法でお試しいただき、同様の結果が得られたかどうかをお知らせください。

    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。

  12. moving a path to an invisible group still enables me to edit

    Hi, I was painting a path with the blob brush, then i decided to paint a new path on top of the other one and i didnt want to join with the original, so I moved the original to an invisible group and proceeded to paint the new path, for my surprise the original in the invisible group joined with the new path, I don't see this like a feature.

  14. Collapsing layers

    LAYER BUGS

    1) when Alt + click on layer, only the TOPMOST sublayer is collapsed. The rest of the sublayers remain expanded

    2) The REAL bug is that when I collapse all layers, save, close, and reopen, ALL LAYERS AND SUBLAYERS ARE AUTOMATICALLY EXPANDED!!! It should remember the state of ALL layers, without regard to whether it is a sublayer or not. The USER COMMUNITY have been asking for a fix to this for at least 10 years!
