  1. Fonts Syncing

    I just upgraded my computer to the Macbook Pro 2021 M1. I downloaded the latest versions of Adobe and noticed none of my fonts will sync. I've tried posted troubleshooting methods and none have worked (closing and restarting apps, reinstalled apps, multiple computer resets, unsyncing and resyncing manually, etc). Any time I open an Illustrator project with previously used fonts that aren't native to the app, it prompts me to sync but the load wheel just keeps spinning and will never finish.

    I'm at a loss. Any ideas?

  3. 禁則処理が反映されない、トラッキングの数値が変わる

    macOS Mojave バージョン10.14.6
    CC2020 バージョン24.1で起きたバグです。

    ・テキストボックスを使用して文字組みの作業をしていました。
    ・保存後に再度開くと文字送り位置が勝手に変わっている現象が発生。
     」←閉じ括弧が行頭に来ていたました。
    ・禁則処理は「強い禁則」に設定していた&行頭禁則文字に同記号を設定していたのに適用されませんでした。
    ・トラッキングを-5→0に設定して文字送りを調整して保存しましたが、再度開くとまたトラッキングは-5に戻り」←閉じ括弧が行頭にある状態に。
    ・トラッキングを今度は5〜10にして文字送りを調整し保存。再度開いたら正しい状態で保存されていました。

    以上ご報告になります。
    よろしくお願い致します。

  5. Variable Font not working properly

    Hello, I am a type designer and am working on a variable script font. The variable font file work fine everywhere else except in Adobe products.

    It appears the sidebearings aren't adjusting with the changes in width. Very odd. You can see whats happening in the first file. The second is on the Axis Praxis website.

    I've spoken with Glyphs App developers and they said it's a glitch with Illustrator, so I wanted to bring it to your attention.

  8. Asks me to login to Creative Cloud when I try to "Find Fonts"

    When I try to search for non-native fonts that I've downloaded after opening a file from a non-Adobe cloud program, it says I need to go to "Help" and log in to Creative CLoud. When I go to "Help", it says I'm already signed in. Restarting the program and trying again does not fix the problem.

  9. missing fonts logged in error

    When I open a document with missing fonts, the 'resolve missing fonts' screen keeps telling me I'm currently logged out of Creative Cloud, and to go to "help/log in". This despite the fact I'm logged in, and going to "help" shows my account name and logged in status..

  11. Text content differs from "path" preview to print preview

    Text content differs from "path" preview (Cmd Y) to print preview (or GPU). In my example, the word "Optipro" appears at the GPU Preview and disappears when I use the Cmd Y preview.

  12. Visible Text unable to be edited.

    While trying to edit a line of text in illustrator, i couldn't select it. While i could see the text in preview mode, in outline mode it does not show.

  15. can't copy text of typeface name from character panel

    selecting a typeface's name in the character panel and copying it gives you "Myriad Pro" when pasting.

    This is not a consistent bug. Sometimes when trying to re-create it actually pastes the test of the right typeface you are trying to copy.

  16. Character Panel doesn´t change fonts name

    AI version: last one, 22.0.1
    I typed the same words in 10 different fonts (all Google fonts), and they all look different of course, but when selecting them a second time, the font shown in the Character panel was always the same. I closed Illustrator and then it worked for few minutes, then the same issue appeared again.

  17. Major Font problem in Ai CC 2018

    Adobe Illustrator 22.0 64-bit
    Windows 10 1703 (build 15063.632) 64-bit

    Characters refuses to render, be it in an area frame or a single line. Can't work like that, returning to CC 2017 right now.
    I had a full page of text yesterday and now I have just the backgrounds. The text frame can be selected but the characters panel doesn't show any information regarding type weight or anything. Also, the Find Font dialog is broken.

  19. Selection of multiple text objects - changing font not working

    We can no longer change the font of multiple text objects at once.
    When multiple text objects are selected, Ai thinks this is a 'mixed selection' and does not come up with the typeface selector. Slowing down my work incredibly.

  20. Delay of text cursor

    1. Illustrator 22.0.0 (64-bit).
    2. There is a delay in the text cursor showing up when it's moved with arrows or a text path is newly clicked, requiring one to wait for it before being able to continue working.
    3. The text cursor should be immediately visible.
    4. There is a delay instead of a couple seconds. (That's a long time when making many moves in a row.)
