  1. Clipping group in symbol

    If you convert a clipping group to a symbol, the bounding box for it will be calculated according to clipped art and not the clipping path, resulting in a larger box.
    The same exact behaviour we had for rasterized clipping groups (now fixed).
    Please fix this one too.

  2. Lost stroke when copying dynamic symbol

    Hi,

    We use a lot of dynamic symbols in the fashion industry to make colorways and keep the link with the original sketch which is in black and white.
    In Illustrator CC 2019 (23.1.1) and CC2020 (24.3) version on Mac and Windows, I noticed several bugs with the dynamic symbols:

    When I copy a dynamic symbol (CTRL + C / CTRL+V), the outline of the copy disappears.
    When I copy a dynamic symbol (ALT + Drag & Drop), the outline of the copy disappears.
    When I copy a dynamic symbol using CTRL + C / CTRL + F, the outline…

  3. Applying Recolor to selected instances of a symbol recolors the original symbol

    If I want to change colors for selected dynamic symbols, using Recolor will affect not local colors, but the original symbol.
    This makes little sense. If I wanted to change the original symbol, I'd edited it and made the changes directly to it. If I have a selection, I mean to change symbols in it only.

    To workaround it I can isolate my selection by locking/hiding objects I don't want to affect and use Select Same commands to recolor parts of symbols one at a time.

  4. Duplicated symbols reverts to originals / or not!!

    Illustrator 25.3.1 on MacOS Big Sur 11.4

    Let's say I have 3 symbols, A, B and C.

    A is the original symbol in my external Symbol Library file (blue in the attached video)
    B is that symbol, imported into my current file and modified (I changed it to green in the video)
    C is a duplicate of B, in my current file, also modified (red in the video)

    When I copy C, I expect C to be pasted. But it's actually B.
    (in the video, red is copied but green is pasted)

    Moreover, when I try to "reimport" the original…

  5. Symbol transformation "Reset" button sometimes greyed out

    Illustrator 25.3.1 on MacOS Big Sur 11.4

    I have several instances of a Symbol on my Artboard, and each has been transformed.

    Some of these instances displays the "Reset" button when I select them, some others don't, and I have no choice but to use the Symbol panel. Why??!?

  6. stabilité

    Illustrator est moins stable que la version précédente alors que des bugs sont censés être corrigés !
    Et le "conseil" pour éviter le plantage est complétement inadapté puisque nous n'utilisons pas le logiciel cité.
    Il plante de façon aléatoire lors d'une opération sur les symboles

  7. Symbols and fill & strokes

    In Illustrator 26 (Mac, Big Sur 11.6.1), Symbols (static) now accept fill and stroke properties with the symbol selected (not editing the symbol). Traditionally, they have not been accepting any fill or stroke properties as those are defined within the symbol. These are not dynamic symbols.

  8. Creating new symbol

    As I was making a new symbol, I had another tab open of a house I was creating and in the midst of making such my laptop went blank showing some weird neon pink image of straight horizontal lines, and then it went blank and then after that my laptop restarted. It was only after I reported the bug to apple I realized looking back at my other tab on illustrator that the original image I was using for practice on illustrator got really messed up and can't use now.

  9. Copying text inside a symbol group copies all text in that symbol to the clipboard

    When I copy selected text inside a symbol it copies ALL the text in that symbol. It doesn't matter if the text is in the same instance or in a completely different one. If it is text and inside the symbol it will get copied. When I then paste the text that I think I copied it pastes everything.
