  1. Artboard orientation changes from vertical to horizontal by itself

    After update to 28.3, some artboards are switching orientation by themselves. It's not specific to content or number of artboards, apparently. Sometimes I just open a document with some artboards and hover my cursor over them (not even clicking anything) and the artboard just flips orientation from vertical to horizontal. Most of my work consists on social media posts (1080x1920px or 1080x1350px) witch now Illustrator insists in automatically switching to Landscape for no apparent reason.
    By the way, the content is not flipped, just the artboard. And not all of them, usually just one out of the 10 or 20…

    The team has been investigating this problem in-house, and so far fails to find the exact steps required to make this happen. Seems to be either file- or machine-specific.

    Please provide your full specs and try to come up with exact steps that lead to this.

    A test file and a test video will surely help!

  2. Contextual Task Bar cannot be turned off

    When you hide the Contextual Task Bar in Illustrator 28.4 it will always reappear after relaunching Illustrator. Even after resetting the preferences.

  3. Adobe Illustrator 27.8.1 creates a pdf where the colour space of the custom profile is incorrect

    Hello,
    I came back from holiday today and a colleague at work told me that she can't create PDF files from Adobe Illustrator with the output intent that it saves but reports a colour space error when opened in Adobe Acrobat. First I deleted all the presets but the error remained. I also tried creating a PDF file with other profiles (created by us) and the error was there for all of them. But if I used the default profiles from Adobe (e.g. Iso Coated v2), the PDF file can be opened correctly. Finally I downgraded Illustrator to version 27.7…

  4. Filled area text boxes do not export to SVG (v. 28.4.1)

    In the current 28.4.1 version, our files do not export to SVG correctly. You can easily reproduce this by creating any area text box and apply a fill to the box. The text will export, but not the filled box. We use this for all our our org charts and other graphics where we want the text to be easily centered in the boxes as the boxes get resized and moved.

  6. Click-drag fails... snaps back

    Click-drag, click-opt (copy) drag, click-shift (constrained) drag fails... snaps back.

    Click on object to drag it either with or without option and/or shift and sometimes it will fail and snap back to its original position.

    Mac mini M1
    MacOS 12.2.1 Monterey
    Apple Magic Mouse (no Wacom or other third party drivers)

    Same behavior on two identical machines.

    Works fine with v26.0.3.

  7. Optical kerning issue in some Japanese fonts

    1. macOS Monterey(version 12.3.1)/Illustrator 26.3.1

    In optical kerning for many Japanese fonts,
    the space between characters is too narrow and some characters overlap.

  8. Copying tables from InDesign and only the text pastes in Illustrator

    Hello, I used to be able to copy a table I created in InDesign and copy and paste it into Illustrator with all of the formatting being the same. Now when I go to paste a table, all of the table formatting is missing and it's just a big block of text. Please fix this soon as my company does this on a day-to-day basis for our images. I attached an image of what it looks like when I paste the table in Illustrator.

    Illustrator team is working on a fix for this issue. Meanwhile you can use the below workaround to paste the table as it was before.


    Before you copy the table in InDesign, create a path object along with table and then copy from InDesign and Paste in Illustrator. This forces the PDF route for copy/paste between ID and AI

    リピート機能(ミラー、ラジアル、グリッドのいずれも)を適用すると再配色で色を変更するできなくなります。
    ダブルクリックなどして編集モードにすればできますが、他のオブジェクトと同時にできなければあまり意味がありません。

    通常の状態で再配色でカラーが管理できるようにしてください。

  11. Color values of existing objects change when images are placed by drag & drop

    A bug report was received on the Japan Forum stating that when an image with a color profile embedded that differs from Illustrator's color settings is placed by drag-and-drop, the color values of existing objects are changed.

    Here are the steps to reproduce the problem.
    Save the image with Adobe RGB (1998) embedded as an example.
    Specify sRGB in Illustrator's color settings and set a color management policy other than "None".

    Under the above conditions, when an image file is dragged and dropped onto a document, the color values of the existing objects are changed.
    This behavior may be a…

  12. ドロップシャドウの一部だけが解像度が低い

    macOS Catalina (Ver. 10.15.7)
    Illustrator 2021
    ラスタライズ効果設定の解像度が「350ppi」に設定されている状態で、複数箇所でドロップシャドウを使用しているファイルがあり、作業前はすべてのドロップシャドウが正しい350ppiの状態(表示)だったが、編集作業終了時に1箇所だけドロップシャドウの表示が、72ppi程度の解像度に変わっていた。
    色々と動作検証をしてみましたが同様の状態にできず、原因不明です。
    低解像度のドロップシャドウ部分は表示のみではなく出力した際も低解像度のままとなっており、ドロップシャドウ部分に変更を加えたり、コピペしたりすると正しい表示に戻るようです。

    ご報告いただいた「合成フォントが使用されているパス上文字をアウトライン化した際に、一部の文字が正しくアウトライン化されない現象」の再現を確認いたしました。

    こちらの問題は曲線パス上の文字の角度によって、再現の有無があるようです。

    また、ノーマルフォントの場合は再現しませんが、単一フォントのみで作成された合成フォントでは再現することが確認できました。


    今後ともよろしくお願いいたします。

  15. ファイル→書き出しにてJPEGを書き出す際、圧縮方式が選択したものと異なる場合がある

    Windows10/21H1 Adobe IllustratorCC 26.0.3

    問題が発生したときに実行していた手順
    1.アートワークをアートボード上に作成する。
    2.ファイル→書き出し→書き出し形式を選択しJPGを選択する。
    3.ダイアログ上で圧縮方式を「ベースライン(最適化)」を指定しJPEGファイルを書き出す。
    4.書き出されたJPEGファイルは圧縮方式がプログレッシブになっている。

    想定していた結果
    指定したベースライン(最適化)でJPEGファイルが作成される。

    実際の結果
    圧縮方式がプログレッシブにて書き出される。

    この症状はWindows版のみで起こるようです。また、書き出し状態が異なるケースも見られるようなので他のパラメータによる影響を受けている可能性も残ります。
    わたしが検証したファイル3種類を添付します。それぞれがファイル名に付けた圧縮形式で書き出しを行っていますが、バイナリデータを見てもベースライン最適化とプログレッシブのマーカーが入れ替わっている状態です。
    この問題については以下のスレッドをご参照下さい。

  16. Performance is extremely slow when using show grids in outline preview

    macOS Big Sur 11.4, Illustrator 25.3.1

    When switching to outline mode when using show grids, it is almost impossible to keep on working as everything is in slow motion, as if the graphic card is unable to cope. This occurs with a 500 kb file that was trouble free before the last updates.

    It turns out the problem is fixed only partially in 26.3.1, only for some users, and the performance remains slow when grid is rendered with lines or dots in Outline mode. This applies to zooming, panning and ghosting of objects being moved.

    Please help the team by providing your specs and answers to these questions:

    1. Does it work fine with grid as dots in Preivew / Outline mode?

    2. Does it differ from grid as lines in these modes?

    3. What is slow for you exactly? How severe?

    4. Is there a difference if you disable 'Grids In Back' option?

    5. What are you lines/subdivisions settings?

    And any other related feedback is appreciated. Let's track it down and get this really fixed.

  17. View Using GPU Gets Greyed Out Permanently with Outline Mode

    Hello, with fresh preferences, 'View using GPU' and scrubby zoom are enabled in Illustrator. if I turn on Outline Mode, Illustrator loses connection with my GPU. The 'View using GPU' option becomes greyed out and never restores. In order to get it back I have to delete my preferences. Here is my system info:

    Illustrator 25.1
    OS: Windows 10
    GPU: 2 x NVIDIA Titan Black
    RAM: 64 GB Memory
    GPU Driver: Driver 460.89

  18. Illustrator 25.4.1 Generating constant 105MB log files into com.adobe.dunamis folder and filling up hard drive

    When I am working in Illustrator, my fan starts to run and Illustrator generates multiple log files per minute in the com.adobe.dunamis folder. Each log file is roughly 105MB and before I was able to pinpoint what was going on, it filled my hard drive with 750GB of log files. If I close Illustrator and reopen it, it stops for awhile but I haven't been able to pinpoint what triggers the start of the log file generation – it isn't consistently doing it, but it does occur multiple times per day.

  19. カラーコード入力で色を変えると戻れない

    windows10 21h1

    カラーモードRGBでカラーパネルもRGBでの作業で、カラーコード(#と6桁)を打ち込んで色を変え、前の色に戻したいなとctrl+z(取り消し)を押すと挙動がおかしいです。
    まったく戻らなかったり、カラーコードを打ち込む前の操作に戻ったりします。

    コミュニティに投稿し、再現されている方がいるのでバグだと思います。

  20. テキストフレームでグローバルスウォッチの変更が適用されない。

    OS/macOS10.13〜、Windows10 (20H2)
    ver/25.4.4、26.0.3

    エリアテキストオブジェクトのパスにグローバールスウォッチを適用し、そのオブジェクトを複製した場合、描画がグローバルスウォッチの編集に追随しなくなる。

    再現手順
    1.エリアテキストを作成しテキストパスのみを選択して塗りにグローバルスウォッチを適用した上Command(ctrl)+option(ALT)を押しながらドラッグし複製する。
    2.選択を外した状態にし、適用したグローバルスウォッチをダブルクリックし編集に入る。
    3.プレビューにチェックを入れた上でカラーを編集する。
    4.コントロールバーやカラーパネルでの表示は変化するがテキストパスの塗りは変化しない。OKをクリックし編集を終了する。
    5.スウォッチパネルなどの表示は正しく更新されるが1.のテキストバスの塗りは表示が変わらない。

    期待する結果
    グローバルスウォッチを適用したテキストエリアオブジェクトのパスでも他のオブジェクトと同様にグローバルスウォッチの変更に表示を追随させる。

    現状の挙動
    エリアテキストのパスに適用した塗りがグローバルスウォッチの変更に追随しない。

    対応策
    一旦アウトライン表示に切り替えてからプレビュー表示を行うとグローバルスウォッチの値にて再描画される。

    この挙動を細かく見てみると複製したエリアテキストのパスに対する処理に問題がありそうです。1点だけだと再現しません。また、オブジェクト的にはカラー値は更新されていますので単純に再描画が行われていないように思われます。
    以下のコミュニティスレッドをご確認下さい。
