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

    ご報告いただいた「選択ツールで高さを変更できない」という現象ですが、最新バージョン「Illustrator 2021 (ver.25.4.1)」の Mac & Win OS ともに正しく動作しています。

    選択ツールでバウンディングボックスの上辺、または下辺のハンドルをドラッグしての高さ変更の操作でよろしいでしょうか?

    アプリの再起動、またマシンの再起動をしても再現するようでしたら、お手数をおかけいたしますが、カスタマーサポートにお問い合わせください。

    以上、よろしくお願いいたします。

  2. Too small to use?

    When scaling down a complex drawing especially one created by image trace it often says cannot complete the operation because it would make some objects too small to use. So how can i scale my group? Can you just disappear those objects? If they are too small to use they must be too small to see so make them go away. Or it could automatically select them so you have the option to delete them. It seems silly that i can't make something the size i need because a part of it is too small to use. I'm on mac…

  3. Illustrator CC 23.0.2 Align Distribute not working correctly MacOS Mojave 10.14.3

    Align Distribute. If I do not have the window open and I select the objects & the key object then open the Align window, the distribute input field does not allow for input. I have to deselect the key object then reselect the key object then it will allow me to enter the input field. Also occasionally if I enter a distribute measurement of 1" or an integer it does not read it as 1", instead it reads it as 0.1 but shows up as 1 until I do a save as not a save. If I do a save…

  4. Selection tool acting like Direct selection tool and vice versa

    Selection tool does not select all points and will not move a group of objects correctly, (it acts like the Direct Selection tool, not selecting all points). And the Direct Selection tool selects ALL points of a group and moves them, which is what the Selection tool is supposed to do. They are working exactly opposite as they should. "Show Bounding box" does not resolve this issue. The Selection tool has also instantly changed format of text simply upon selection (indent & tracking). Using MacOS Sierra 10.12.6, Illustrator CC 2019. This is a bad bug, please help.

    Please accept my sincere apology for the inconvenience. Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

  5. Scaling object(s) is causing the associated bounding box to become a shape ('expanded object' appears on the screen after scaling).

    Seems to be occurring repeatedly - updated/reinstalled Illustrator 2019, which had received it for a short period, but now it has re-emerged. Driving me mad! Seems to occur more with smart guides and holding the shift key.

    See attached for examples.

  6. the Align Objects and Distribute objects tools changed behavior.

    Windows 10, Illustrator CC 22.1

    Align to right and align to top are the only alignment tools functioning correctly in all three alignment modes (artboard, key object, selection). None of the distribution tools are working in any mode.


    In the 22.1 update, the Align Objects and Distribute objects tools changed behavior. Before, if I selected say, 5 objects and clicked the Align Horizontal Center tool, they would align on a mutual horizontal center. Now, they align to the center of the artboard, apparently, which is often completely offscreen when I’m zoomed in. This is a very confusing and almost totally…

  7. Disappearing an outline size diameter of a brush tool

    When you just launch the Adobe Illustrator, you can see the outline size diameter of the cursor of brush/blob brush tools, but when you have drawn something the outline disappears , you can see only an icon of the brush and no clue what size is currently on.

  10. Minus Front - Incomplete Shapes

    This is an odd issue that is kind of hard to explain. Whenever I am using the minus front tool on some objects, the appearance doesn't end up quite right. For example, I subtracted these outlined text characters from a black background. The blue outlines show that they were subtracted correctly, but the white background showing through is cut off in the wrong spots?

  12. Lock/unlock width and height while scaling

    If I have a rectangle for example and I unlock the width and height so that I can change the values separately, If I change the width or height (size) the object transforms proportionally.

    Example:

    Object 500 H x 500 W px (locked):
    If I change H -50px I get 450 H x 450 W px.

    Problem

    Object 500 H x 500 W px (Unlocked):
    If I change H -50px I expected to get 450 H x 500 W px.
    But what I get is 450 H x 450 W px.

  13. Can't put objects exactly in the middle of another object

    At first I thouht it was an alignment problem, then i looked up to help videos but none of them solves my problem. I want to put a figure for example a square, then I want to put another square to have the exact triangle of that square but it won't let me make another figure exactly in the middle, it always goes left or right but not center. Help please!!

  14. Selecting pen lines (vectors) & anchor points is really hard after updating to newest version of CC 2019.

    I recently updated my OS to Sierra & with that my CC updated to 2019 23.0.2. Ever since, it takes several tries to select a line or an anchor point using the direct select or group select tool & to remove points using the Add/delete anchor tools. The scissors tool also can't seem to find the line to create a point either. It is extremely frustrating & slows down drawing a lot! It seems like the lines/points that we are looking at, are not in the same place code-wise maybe? Something is not lining up. PLEASE fix quickly!

  17. "Envelope distort > Make with top object" is warping/distorting text.

    I've seen this issue in a lot of online forums, but found no answer. I'm using the CC trial version, fairly new to Illustrator.

    Online tutorials show users creating a shape > typing text > converting text to outline > move shape to front > selecting shape and text > Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Top Object. It shapes the text perfectly to shape, without distorting the font or curving the letters.

    But when I follow these steps, but my text always comes out wavy and distorted within the shape. I've tried Envelope Options and deselecting "Distort Appearance"…

  19. Smart Guides - Center point not usable

    When Smart Guides are enabled, the Center point of an object is shown, when hovered over the edges of the object, but it dissappears (and doesn't snap) when trying to hover over the Center point itself.

  20. Brush won't change to basic

    When drawing in cc 2018 on macOS High Sierra version 10.13.4. Program will not allow me to select basic brush. it defaults to 3pt round or a bristle brush. If I delete that brush it won't allow to draw anything. Need to restart and still won't allow me to select basic brush.
