  4. The align tools don't work on rectangle in perspective plane

    In particular, the center align button in the align menu doesn't work correctly on a rectangle in a perspective plane. I notice that the bounding box does appear to be correct, but the shape is no longer align with its bounding box. Again, this problem only occurs with objects in a perspective plane. And yes, I am using the perspective selection tool to select the object.

  5. Align to key object isn't working

    Align to key object not working. When I click to align the non-key object moves to a random but specific place on the file, it is not aligning to the art board but to a random half-way straddling the edge of the art board. Please fix this asap, I can't really use Illustrator without being able to align objects on the page. We pay a lot for this program!

  6. Text center alignment off

    I'm on the most up-to-date version of Illustrator (26.5). Whenever I try to center text within a box, the x and y coordinates are slightly off for the text. For example, say my box is at 100.5 px on the x-axis and 100.5 px on the y-axis. When I center the text over the box (using Align Objects tool), the text box coordinates are 100.6904 px, 101.2729 px. Before I updated Illustrator, the text coordinates would always match the box coordinates. Even though the numbers are only off slightly, it is visibly noticeable that the text isn't perfectly aligned.

  7. Align to artboard when starting up

    When you first start illustrator up in the newest version 25.4.1 the align to artboard tool will switch to align to selection if multiple objects are selected. If you select align to selection and then align to artbaord the issue will not happen and only happens when the program is first launched. Once you have gone to selection and then back to artbaord the issue will not happen again.

  8. (Align to) broken more than not

    Illustrator version 25.4.1
    Mac 10.15.7

    (Align to) works SOMETIMES, and other times not so much. Doesn't matter if it's set to align to artboard, objects, or selected. Currently can only get it to work properly by shutting down & restarting every time I need to center something after successfully working ONCE. Here's what happens;

    1. Layer 1, align to center, worked.
    2. Layer 2, align to center, art moved 4 inches to right.
    3. Layer 2, align to center, art moved 4 more inches to right.
    4. Layer 2, align to left, art does nothing.
    5. Layer 2, align to center, art moves another 4…

  9. Aligning a group of objects to an artboard

    A bug in Align to Artboard. If I align a group of objects to Horizontal Align Center (to artboard), it's okay. But if the next click is Vertical Align Center (to artboard), all the objects of the group are aligned, not the group, but the seperate objects.

    A workaround is to click somewhere else, and then click the Vertical Align Center. But it looks like a bug to me.

  10. The latest update is now causing 'align to top' to behave like 'align to bottom', and 'align to left' to behave like 'align to right'

    The alignment tools never had this problem until the latest update. Wish I hadn't updated since it's now slowing my workflow. Please consider fixing this issue on the next update.

  13. Snap to point

    Why not have snap to point regardless of what magnification you're at. I'm sick of having to waste my precious time zooming right in to make sure object lines and points are snapped together and aligned properly.

    This issue has been going on for a long time, and never gets fixed. I know others on forums have this issue as well...it's universal, not just me!

    I do hope someone reads this and actually does something about this issue, but I'm not expecting anything to be honest, because you haven't bothered to fix it for a long time now.

  14. Align to artboard can't change to Align selected objects

    The default Align Artboard button cannot be changed to Align selected objects.
    The version I am using is 28.0, mac system. I can't perform the point alignment operation, it will automatically perform the 'Align Artboard' function. 'Align' is a frequently used feature, so please fix it as soon as possible. Thanks

  15. Align on a selection not working - Illustrator 27.3.1

    When selecting the 2 points of a line, the "align to a selection" is not available.
    However, it worked yesterday, before upgrading to 27.3.1.
    What I want to do is select the first point of the line, then the second, and when I click "align horizontally to center", the first point should align with the second.
    Instead of that, the entire line is centered on the artboard.

  19. Guides are invisible

    The update made my guides disappear unless I click on the objet or art-board. It would be ok, but when I use the arrows to move the guides they disappear and I can't see how far I have moved them. May I change this update back to how it was.

  20. Non-proper alignments

    This has been an ongoing issue since CS first began. Never had a problem with the old 10 or lower. If you grab a node from an object and move it say, to latch on to nearest node or object, it almost always picks some random and sometimes distant node or object, including itself (shown here). Should it not latch to nearest node? In order to properly latch, you have to pull out a guideline and place it where you want it to go, in order for it to recognize where to latch.
