  1. Text height is wrong

    When you select a specific text height, it is not correct. Say for instance you select 1 inch for text height but in reality the cap height is .68 inches. We work at a sign shop and a lot of jobs require a specific text height. This is misleading when I pick 1 inch for text height and it is no where near 1 inch in height. Can you please make it where the text height corelates to the actual cap height of the text, otherwise this feature is useless.

  2. Illustrator PDF created with 24.3 sets letter I to overprint

    We process PDF files daily and have noticed that files saved as PDF from Illustrator 24.3 will set overprint on for the letter I

    There are several different examples if you cannot reproduce.

  3. Illustrator not outlining type correctly

    I've only started to encounter this recently and it doesn't happen with all fonts. When I outline certain typefaces - such as your Source Sans - it outlines parts of some letters individually, such as the bar in the letter 'A' in the attached example, or does some bizarre detour as seen in both the comma and the apostrophe (the two most typical examples I could think of).

    All I am doing is outlining type with no stroke.

    I'm running Illustrator 24.3 and Catalina 10.15.6

  5. Text cursor too thin to see

    Editing text in Adobe Illustrator CC2020 has become harder than the previous version I was on, CS5.5. I produce infographics. Text is a vital component. It's harder now than ever before because Adobe has made the text cursor bar so thin, it's barely visible.
    I'm using the latest CC2020 on the latest Catalina macOS on a 2019 27-in 5K iMac. Is it the 5K screen that is affecting the cursor? Please, Adobe, just thicken it up by a pixel or two. Currently it's so thin, it's hard to find it when editing text.

    Hey Ninian, Thanks for reporting this. Could you please go to Preferences→User Interface→UI Scaling slider. It will scale the entire Illustrator UI proportionately. Let us know if increasing the value on that slider helps. Thanks.

  6. Can't see the fint size in the type panel

    Hi, I work in publishing so I need to see the font size in the top bar but all I can see in illustrator 2020 is the stroke size when I choose the T tool. When I watch tutorials I can see they have the type bar across the top but all I have is the character window which is very cumbersome when I need to constantly change the font size. Can you tell me how I can see that type bar? Is it something simple because I just can't figure out how?

  7. Font Preview Size

    In Illustrator 24.2.3,
    We are not able to change the Font Preview Size in the preference Dialogue in/under the Type Tab, and you also do not have the same feature in the Type Menu, which is the right place to set the Font Previews size default,
    we are also not able to see the Font names in the written text as a preview in the Font/Character Menu.

  10. Cap Height setting not using Font Cap Height

    Hello, the option for setting a size of a font by the font's specified cap height appears to be using a metric other than the cap height in at least one instance.

  11. Arabic Language Options Not Showing

    After activating Indic Script support and changing my text to be Middle Eastern & South Asian Every-Line (or Single Line), I still am missing options for my character and paragraph menus, such as text direction (RTL vs LTR) and adding kashidas automatically.

  12. Cannot select type baseline with text tool when snap to grid is active.

    Is there an option I'm missing here with the newer versions of Illustrator? I have to key command the grid on and off constantly just to highlight small captions or type.

  13. The list of available fonts is not displaying correctly, typekit not visible as well

    This is what I'm getting when opening the search for fonts. I don't see any usable list of fonts nor the typekit options .

    What could be the reason for such illustrator behavior?

  14. Just updated to Illustrator 24.3 and now installed font only has a few letters

    I updated to the latest version of Illustrator (24.3) and opened a document I had created in a previous version. Most of my text was missing. I checked and the font was still available and activated. I deactivated and reactivated and that didn't help. When I click the text, it gives me the message that "This text was created in a different version of Illustrator. Editing the text may cause some changes to your text layout. Basic formatting will not be affected. Do you want to continue?" The font is PeachyKeenJF. Only a few letters/numbers actually show up. I'm on…

  15. Text path vanishes when moving it with selection tools (black or white arrows)

    Since updating to version 24.1.2 from Adobe Illustrator 2019, whenever I move text objects using any of the selection arrows, the highlighted path disappears during moving and only reappears when I stop moving the text object. This is frustrating as I can't see the baseline or centre point of the text object while trying to align it to something else. This never happened before I updated Illustrator. My OS is macOS Mojave 10.14.6, Illustrator version 24.1.2.

  16. Type on Path Brackets Not Appearing

    When using type on path tool (and then direct selection for realignment), the brackets to realign often don't appear regardless of how long you tediously go over the path trying to get the cursor to change. In the off chance we can get them to appear, often it isn't possible to drag the text fully to where it needs to be to go in place before the cursor jumps. This isn't happening in Photoshop, only Illustrator, which leads me to believe it is a bug.

  17. Cannot stop Auto Resize on Area Type box for large text areas

    I do not want my text box to auto-resize. The "Auto-Resize" option fails on large text box areas. Auto-Resize is turned off in my preferences. I have large text box areas filled with type and whenever I need to make an adjustment to the type box it always automatically resizes. I have tried selecting the "fixed" options and those fail too. In the video attached you can see that large areas of text will automatically resize. However, on a smaller scale the Area Type box does not.

  19. Font Activation Not working in Illustrator 2020

    I have repeatedly tried to activate fonts from Adobe Type with no success. It keeps showing as Activating. When I go to fonts.adobe.com it shows that the font is activated (Good Times Ultra Light) in the browser but in Illustrator it never shows the cloud with the checkmark. I have rebooted but still the same issue.

  20. Issues

    My text is not showing up from even previous projects. Plus if I copy text from other programs, Illustrator just spools and quits.
