  1. BUG - Kann Umlaute ü und ö nicht per Tastatur eingeben

    Seit dem Update auf Illustrator 25.4 kann ich die Umlaute "ü" und "ä" nicht auf der Tastatur eingeben. Es wird einfach nichts eingetippt.

  3. テキストの半角スペースに点が現れる

    Ver 25.3.1 windows

    25.3.1にバージョンアップすると突然テキストの半角スペースにピリオドが現れました。

    1. テキストに半角スペースを打つ
    2. テキストに線幅を入れて縁取りにする
    3. その線の線端を丸型線端にする

    するとスペース部分に点が現れます。テキストをアウトライン化すると消えますが、そのままPDF書き出しすると残ります。

  4. When using optical type feature, since the update it displays the type as if it has no spaces?

    Running version 25.3 on illustrator.

    16.21 indesign.

    Since updating me and a few people i know who also use the software across indesign and illustrator have seen when using the optical type feature, it displays the type as if it has no spaces? Type treatment is thrown off to what is traditionally correct. Please fix this! This will have a massive knock on affect with branding agencies if rules are changing regarding such simple things.

  5. Ver 23.3, When character unit is Q, spin button does not work properly with font size of character panel and control

    Version : 24.3
    OS : Windows and macOS

    1. Set the unit character to series (Q) in the environment settings
    2. Create point text and area text
    3. Change the font size of the character panel or control with the spin button.

    In this operation, the spin button does not work properly, and the size can be changed only within a specific range based on the character size at the time of selection.
    In the property panel, it works normally.
    Even if you enter it directly, a value with decimal will be entered instead of the entered value.
    Other units are normal.

  9. オブジェクト(主にテキスト)が選択できない

    打ち込みをしたテキストが選択できないことが多々発生しております。
    その部分は印刷もできないので文字が抜けたまま出力し現場に回ってしまうという業務に支障が出ています。
    保存をして落とし再び立ち上げると問題は解決するのですが毎回その動作をするわけにもいかず、必ず不具合が起こっているわけでもないので困っています。これはPCの問題でしょうか?ご回答お願いします。(著作権等の問題で一部しか画像がのせれません)

  10. ð (eth) and Ð (Eth) glyphs not recognised as the same character

    The glyphs ð (eth) and Ð (Eth) are lower and upper case of the Icelandic character eth. Illustrator has no problems working with them, except when you need to change the case, whether you do that by Type->Change Case or by changing the character attribute to All caps (or small caps for that matter).

    This is a recurring bug in Illustrator, which has been fixed at least twice before, but somehow creeps in a few versions later. I suspect some legacy code in the internal text engine, which does not reflect the relationship between the two characters.

    I’m including a…

  11. 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.

    Latest Illustrator releases have Font Height Options you can access form Character panel’s menu — they allow you to set font height as a capital / x-height specifically.

    The functionality has some minor issues (regarding rounded stems for some fonts, keeping the chosen option between launches), but otherwise it is very good. Please try it!

  12. When a document using Japanese TrueType font is opened in different OS environment, font warning is given

    When Japanese TrueType font is used in a document and opened in different OS environment,
    Even though you have installed the same font, you will get a font warning when you open it.
    Screenshots are created on Windows and open on macOS. But the opposite is also true.

    1. Create a file in Windows environment and save it using related fonts
    2. When 1 is opened in macOS environment, the corresponding font is displayed as a font problem.
    3. Open Font Search after opening has not caused any problems

    There are three types of fonts used, but problems occur with Japanese fonts or…

    The space character is not rendered consistently when it includes an SVG glyph:

    • The glyph is invisible by default
    • But - as expected - it is visible in full color when moving the text object, and in greyscale version when switching to Outline mode

  15. On applying tracking via Properties panel, Illustrator issues like Tracking of complete paragraph changes , Bounding Box gets invisible

    MacOS, multiple versions, multiple hardware configs
    Illustrator CC2018 & 2019

    This has been reported on a number of other posts, but seems to keep being reposted as new entries, rather than upvoted.

    Since CC2018 the ability to adjust tracking in Illustrator has been broken. This appeared to begin with the introduction of the Properties Panel in CC2018, but the issues extend to the 'normal/traditional' Character Panel as well.

    When adjusting tracking on a single letter or group of letters, the program will glitch and the adjustment value shown in the panel will not reflect the value being incremented. Moreover, deselecting…

  17. Fonts - scrolling through list

    What did you do to the font list??????

    I don't even know how to describe the issue. I just know it's wrong. And messed up. And needs to be fixed!

    Let me see if I can describe my complaint:

    1) In the CHARACTER pallet: if you highlight the font name and begin typing another font name, I used to be able to put the first few characters (or even just the first letter), then click on the down arrow and it would bring me to that place in my list of fonts.

    For example, I could type “HEL” and it…

  18. text handling still a mess in 22.1

    Text handling in the 22.1 build - meaning the interactions between the Paragraph, Character, Paragraph Styles, and Character Styles panels - is still fraught with bugs and/or undesired oddity compared to previous versions. (2015.3 being the last completely -- or mostly -- working version.)


    Open Illustrator 22.1 (Windows) and create a new blank document.

    Draw a text box and fill it with placeholder text.

    Create a new paragraph style (‘body text’) and set the font, size, and leading to something different from the default. (e.g. font: 10pt Avenir LT Std Book, 16pt leading).

    PROBLEM 1: Select a word or words…

  20. Font drop down menu disappears

    Whenever I select the font drop down menu, and I'm going through the fonts I have, it just randomly disappears as I'm looking through the fonts to find the one I want to use, although I can still use my arrow keys to go through the list even though the drop down menu isn't on my screen.
