  1. why did you just add 3 steps to a simple process

    changing line weight in illustrator was simple: you have a 1 point line, you click the down of the up and down arrows on the left. It changes to .75, then .5 etc. Easy.

    Now you click the down arrow on the left and it goes blank! So I click the only arrow on the right for the list of sizes (which is a down arrow for no apparent reason) and the list starts at 1 point so I have to scroll up to see the smaller sizes. then click the one I want. why? Why would the programmers of…

  2. Select strokes by clicking anywhere on their stroke, no just the 'path' central part.

    It gets tedious really quick having to always be accurate and select the invisible central 'path' of a stroke - why not allow us to select a stoke by clicking on any part of it, of it's pixels rendered on the screen. Like Freehand by macromedia used to allow. Just add it as an option in preferences.

    So if you have a Red 20px thick stroke, you can select it by clicking on any of the red stroke as rendered on screen, rather than having to slow down time and space to be super accurate and guess where that central…

  3. Blending paths with Width profiles works wrong

    Create two lines.
    Apply width profiles to both of them.
    Blend them.
    Ai will generate steps that have uniform profiles instead of intermediate.

  4. Path+stroke profile weirdness

    Plz examine the file. Two paths with different width profiles when reflected. Bottom one behaviour is good, top path behaves badly. Why would this be ?

  5. New update, stroke profile bug

    Just got the latest update and now my Width profile 3 on stroke settings is adding these little rounded bumps to the corners that were (prior to update) sharp. The end points are also slightly curved. Right side does not have bumps but has same curve when points on this profile used to be sharp. All of my settings and prefs have stayed the same. I use this stroke profile alot so I noticed this issue right away. Please fix. Photo attached.

    Thanks

  6. Illustrator not recognizing strokes from imported document using Blend Tool with specified steps

    I've imported a document into build 24.3 that was previously created in the latest version of Illustrator, and strokes used in a blend of two lines using a width profile are not present. Instead, they are seen as fills, with no ability to edit the stroke.

    Using mid-2012 Mac Book Pro and 10.14.6 Mojave OS

  7. Bug with stroke

    Hello! I got a bug. When you copy a shape to a new artboard, a stroke appears that cannot be deleted. It is superimposed over the usual stroke. And when you remove the fill and stroke, it remains. The same when reinstalling the program, this problem remains in this file.
    P.S. I worked in the latest version of illustrator

  8. Glitch in outlining a dotted stroke

    macOS Catalina 10.15.1 Illustrator 2020

    I made a line, applied dashed line, adjusted gap(2,4) and dash(0,01) to make it look like dots and outlined. Random dots have been cut in half after outlining.
    It never happened to me before.

  9. Nothing happens when I double click my width tool

    When I double click my width tool to try and access my wrinkle tool nothing happens, I am currently trying to design a logo for a company in town, and would very much like the effect the wrinkle tool gives.

  10. 'Use Preview Bounds' works wrong with 'Stroke Inside' for Compound Path

    If you set set stroke's alignment to inside and check 'Use Preview Bounds' (image 1), AI will draw bounding box (and calculate dimensions) where the stroke would be visible with no alignment (image 2). This is not how it's expected to behave. The box should wrap the shape.

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 24.1 which is available worldwide now.

    Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

  11. Width tool messes up the width points when a path is extended / shortened / cut

    Maybe this feature exists already but I haven't been able to find it.

    When using the width tool, it would be nice if you could "freeze" the width nodes in their position, so you could extend or shorten the path. Today the nodes adjust to the new length of the path, messing up all your previous work.

  12. bug: [PARM] error after changing stroke alignment

    I clicked the 'align outside' button in the stroke panel and got this error.
    I would keep popping op so I had to close AI.

  13. Round caps for a stroke turn into butt caps when expanded or outlined

    New bugs for Illustrator CC 22.0.1.

    1. make Path Line(pen tool), set Stroke Weight, set Round Cap
    2. use "Outline Stroke" in "Path" menu in "Object" menu" (or "Expand" in "Object" menu")
    3. confirm result

    The state of the start point or the end point changes from before processing.
    Attach screenshot of Japanese version.

    It does not happen in CC 2017.

  15. Expanded Objects have missing Corner Widgets

    1. Problem occurs in all versions of Illustrator 21.x.x and 22.x.x

    2. When an Object with a non-simple Appearance is Expanded the resulting shapes have Corner Widgets created for some of the corners but not for others.

    3. All corners should have Corner Widgets.

    4. When an Object with a non-simple Appearance is Expanded the resulting shapes have Corner Widgets created for some of the corners but not for others. I don't understand why when I expand a rectangle I get a new rectangle with 3 corners that have Corner Widgets but the 4th corner doesn't have a Corner Widget - how can it…

  16. Expanding stroke on small objects seem to omit points in result

    A very small ellipse, after its stroke is expanded, looses its lower inner point and the curviness changes visually. Please see the test file and the animation attached.

  18. Stroke alignment out of bounds

    When drawing objects on top of each other stroke points tend to go out of bounds and are not aligned with other objects in line. I don't know if this is bug or my settings messed but its annoying and would like to get it fixed or solution.
