  1. lines aren't smooth with pencil tool

    Back in version 25.0 the paths drawn with the second setting were smooth. Since version 25.1 the paths aren't smooth. it creates unnecessary misplaced points.

  2. Macmini ベータ版 ガイドラインのバグ

    パスをガイドライン化するとガイドライン化したツールが一定方向に移動してしまう。ルーラーからガイドラインをアートボード上に引き出しても同様。一定方向に移動してしまう。ガイドラインも異常な太さで、ロックしていない状態で移動ツールを使っての移動ができない。

  4. After redo is different from before undo

    The reproduction procedure is as follows.
    1. Create a point text containing two or more paragraphs
    2. Change the transformation reference point to a position other than the default position
    3. Transform it with the scaling tool

    At this point, remember the state of the artboard.

    Undo (command + Z) once.
    Then redo (command + shift + Z).
    It should be different from before undo.

    I feel very threatened because I often do this by hand.

    in Japanese
    再現手順は以下の通りです。
    1. 段落を2つ以上含むポイントテキストを作成
    2. 変形の基準点をデフォルトの位置以外に変更
    3. それを拡大・縮小ツールで変形

    ここまで進めたら、アートボードの状態をよく覚えてください。

    一回取り消し(command+Z)します。
    そしてやり直し(command+shift+Z)します。
    取り消し前と様子が違っているはずです。

    私はこれを手癖でよくやるのでとてもこわいです。

  5. Illustrator v24.0 on macOS 10.15.1: rotate-panel has changed to the bad side

    The rotate-tool had the numeric angle-input activated till v23. now in v24, this field has to be selected manually, which costs me a lot of time. Please change this back. To me this bad for efficiency.

    My workflow before:
    - select path
    - press command-R
    - enter angle
    - press enter
    I can do this blind and very fast.

    My workflow now means to manually select the field for entering the rotating angle, which is very annoying ! It takes much more time to do this now.

  6. Missing center handles for extending lines

    Missing the center handles for all lines, unable to extend lines properly (without scaling them) unless I switch to direct selection tool, which is a pain.

  7. Direct Selection tool does not work on text anchors....

    For some reason I can no longer select text by anchor using the direct selection tool. If I use the Regular selection tool it acts as it did before the update but the direct selection tool does not.

    When I shift hold a gradient now it doesn't snap (constrain angle) in Illustrator. I've checked my general settings and constrain angle is set to 0°... have I missed something? Version 23.0

  9. BUG - Offset path preview remains in artwork even after cancel or tick off preview

    Hi. Since Illustrator 23 I have a very strange bug in the preview of offset path. When I select a shape and select offset path I get the dialog. In the dialog I can set the variables. if I then click ok all is well. But if I check preview I can see what the values I entered will do. So far so good. But then something strange happens. If I change a value I see the result in a preview, but I also see the first preview. The result is even added to the last preview path. And i…

  11. AI 23.0 crashes when drag-copying simple objects when yo have HotDoor's CADtools installed

    Since I installed version 23.0 it frequently and repeatably crashes when drag-copying even the simplest objects. In the latest example it was a line segment -- two connected vertices. After recovering, I rebuilt the objects and tried again -- same result. This is such a basic operation that I do it without thinking -- having it cause an instant crash is very debilitating to my workflow.

    Hi,

    This bug has been fixed with AI version 23.0.2 & fix has been verified from Brendon (Hotdoor).

    Please update AI to latest version 23.0.4 (MAC) & 23.0.3 (WIN).

    Please do let us know if it is still reproducible at email id:
    sharewithaaiATTHERATEadobeDOTcom

    For the crash during image crop you need to start a new thread as it is different from the crash described in this thread.

    Thanks & Regards,

  12. '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. Th box should wrap the shape.

  13. Increase size of anchor points / handles

    Anchor points and handles are hard to grab.

  14. Illustrator plays a <ding> sound when trying to move objects

    I am attempting to move a vector object from one side to the next using my mouse. While selected, I attempt to move the object with my mouse and I am hearing a "ding" (as if there is a message pop up) and nothing. The object will not move (The layer is not locked), and there is no error message. The object will only move with the keyboard keys. Please help! I recently upgraded to CC2018.

  15. Pen tool located in type tools

    Took me a while to find but found the pen tool hanging out with the type tools. Please stop fixing things that are not broken. I remember before CC things works pretty well. Now every time there's an update, some other bugs pop up that weren't there before. Is this just a way for engineer job security? Well whatever it is, its becoming a major pain.

    Hi,

    There was an issue in 23.0 causing tools to shift between groups. This has been fixed in latest update (23.0.2). After update, please reset the Basic and Advanced toolbars by opening the tool drawer (3 dots at bottom of the tool bar), then using ‘Reset’ from the fly-out menu (on top right).

    Apologies for the inconvenience caused by this issue.

    With Best Regards,
    Raghuveer Singh

  16. Blob Brush changes size after undo operation

    1. Illustrator CC 2017.1.0

    2. -I Select blob brush on 2pt.
      -draw a bit with it
      -Hit undo and the blob brush suddenly changes to a much larger size even though it says 2pt in the menu
      -The only way to get it back is to go to Blob brush menu, select 1pt hit ok, then go back to blob brush menu and select 2pt again.

    3. I expect that when I hit undo the blob brush will stay the correct size

    4. It changes size every time I hit undo

  17. Free Transform Tool hidden under Puppet Warp in toolbar

    Illustrator CC 2018 22.1.0

    The Free Transform Tool is no hidden under the Puppet Wrap Tool. The Free Transform Tool should be the default tool. The Puppet Transform Tool should be the one which is hidden.

    In a typical day we use the Free Transform Tool quite frequently, while we almost never use the Puppet Wrap Tool. I do not speak for everyone, but only for our design studio and in my personal experience.

    Before someone posts something about keeping the bounding box visible, please be aware that to remove as much useless clutter from our drawings while editing an…

  20. Brush Pressure exceeds set size/variation

    When drawing with the brush in CC 2018, the brush size of the stroke can exceed the set size and variation. For instance, If I have a brush size of 3 and variation 3, when drawing pressing very hard, the stroke size will go above 3 pts. in CC 2017 the brush stroke was limited to brush size.
