  4. Illustrator CC 2018 - CEP 8 HTML Extension Resize Issue

    We are experiencing resizing issue in the latest CEP version. Our extension allows user to resize extension's window, however whenever any navigation occur, window size resets. Problem exists in Illustrator CC 2018 (22.0.1), everything is working fine in previous version (CC 2017).
    We already tried different geometry settings and extension UI types, but problem persists and seems to be related to engine itself.

  5. Media size setting of print dialog returns to default settings on changing color via swatches (or apply arrowhead via strokes)

    Any operating system (happens on both Windows and Mac)
    Illustrator Version 22.x or 21.x

    Change "media size" in print setting from "Defined by Driver" to any paper.
    Finish the print dialog ("Done" click).
    Select from the color book with Swatches panel, or set the arrow with the Stroke panel.
    When returning to the print setting again, the media size returns to "Defined by Driver".

    Does not occur before Version 20 (CC 2015.5).

    Possibility to occur when using settings that refer to another Illustrator file.

    Problems reported in the Japan Forum.

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 23.0.6 which is available worldwide now.

    Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

  6. Select > Same > (Fill, Stroke, etc.) no longer working in charts

    Adobe CC2018
    When using the direct selection tool to select a single element of a chart or graph, Illustrator no longer responds to the Select > Same > ... commands. This is a feature we rely upon for everyday capabilities when styling charts. When I try the command, it does not select anything within the chart. If I ungroup the chart, or use the Select > Same > (options) with other Illustrator shapes, it works as normal. The problem surfaced immediately after I upgraded from CC2017 to CC2018.

  9. Editing tabs in Paragraph Styles crashes Illustrator.

    Open attached tab_bug.ai file. Open the Paragraph Styles window. Edit the "Windfall back cover" style. Select the Tabs section. Move the tab to the right. Hit OK. Illustrator crashes.

    I've already reported this at https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-bugs/suggestions/31228633-demo-version-of-illustrator-crashes-constantly-de?tracking_code=a5435faf1626b3287df8c29b149793c7, but this is stripped down to the minimum possible case.

  11. update link to illustrator 2017 sdk on https://www.adobe.com/devnet/illustrator/sdk.html

    The move from https://www.adobe.com/devnet/illustrator/sdk.html
    to https://console.adobe.io/downloads/ai left behind a broken link to the 2017 sdk.
    Easiest thing to do would be to update the 2017 sdk link on the old devnet page.

    We are moving away from devnet to the Adobe io site. Moving forward that will the place to get all of Adobe SDK.
    We also have an early access program for our plugin partners. You may join our prerelease site you will get SDK builds way before we release it on public facing pages.
    Here is the link to join Illustrator prerelease http://adobe.ly/1Q3rCPI

  13. Export Artboards "Name" Error

    I exported first one Artboard of 2 or 3 in the beginnning of a design process, the changed the names in the end of all 3 artboards to the projectname. The first artboard still kept the original name ("artboard 01" or else) so i had to rename by hand this file. Pretty weird.

  16. Artboard list drops off when saving

    With multiple artboards setup. "Save a copy" to EPS and select "Use Artboards" Select "all".

    EPS's export fine, artboards still in there, but artboard listing drops all but top artboard. If you click around a bit, they re-appear.

  17. Cannot open file with Bridge

    I am using the latest version of Illustrator, CC2017.
    Often, an Illustrator file will not open with Bridge. Bridge is also the latest version. CC2017. Initially, files will open normally.

    No other application has this problem.
