  2. Deleting segment of path for 'Type on path' and than undoing it gives wrong result

    I have type on path.
    I delete one segment of the path, and text is now overflowing.
    I undo deletion, path got restored, but text does not — it is still trimmed, and I have to NOTICE this and drag end marker back.
    'Undo' must restore previous state fully.

  3. SVG text export failure

    Illustrator 22.0.1 cannot export text layer names to SVG, which seriously impairs our SVG processing pipeline. Tested on both Mac and PC.
    To reproduce:
    • Create a blank document
    • Create a new text object with the Type tool
    • Give the text object a name in the Layers control panel
    • Export to SVG, setting Object IDs to "Layer Names"

    The resulting SVG code will contain a <text> entity, but without its "id" attribute!

    Document recovery is now built inside Illustrator to recover incomplete/corrupt documents. Illustrator first tries to fix and open the native Illustrator document, if that fails then the PDF part of the document is recovered if it is available. Illustrator shows message to the user if any of the above attempts fails to recover the document.

  5. Actions based on Scripts not saving after restart?

    From: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2191151

    I located another thread from December where the consensus seems to be that this is a long standing and known bug with Illustrator.
    Permanently saving scripts in Action Set doesn't work / Scripts werden nicht dauerhaft in den Aktionseinstellungen gespeichert.

    I have spent a good deal of time working with people here on the Adobe forums to develop a script to automate a very large function of my job, and now that it is completed it should be ready to pass on to members of my team so they can utilize it as well. The problem is that…

  7. 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.

  8. Font point size change

    In the new CC 2018 release, when changing font point sizes, the program registers every keystroke entered in the font size field of the character box. For example, if piece of text is set to size 10, and you want to change it to size 15, entering "15" into the character panel changes the font briefly to size 1, until the 5 is entered and then it changes to 15. When undoing this change using command-z, the it requires two keystrokes to return from 15 to 10, because the first undo returns it to size 1, and the second then…

  12. Select artboard behind

    With the latest update if I draw an artboard over an existing one I can only select the larger board. It didn't use to be like this. We used to be able to click each artboard name to select it.

  13. Artboard size not working

    Hi,
    Having issues with artboards, including some listed earlier. Today's new issue:

    Created an artboard 490px x 490px. Instead the artboard size is 490px x 489.6px.

    Try to resize artboard, but the action doesn't take. See video.

  14. Artboard units do not update when I change ruler units

    Hi all,

    Video of the bug: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5yhDUw2YTY

    Also posted this to the Community Forums.
    The units of the artboard do not update in the properties panel when I change the Rulers Units.

    I have to de-select, and re-select the artboard to make this happen.

  15. Can't Delete Empty Artboards

    I can no longer "delete empty artboards." The feature is there and not grayed out, but when I try to use it, it simply does nothing. My empty artboards remain. This is very inconvenient as I sometimes need to alter documents with several artboards and I have found it to be extremely helpful in the past.

  16. Properties panel does not scale in width

    In Illustrator CC 2018 (Windows), the Properties panel does not scale in width, so it can not be grouped with other panels (when switching, all panels become equal to the Properties panel in width).

    In the transformation section of the object in the Properties panel, you can not change the size proportionally using the Ctrl + Enter shortcut. In the Transformation panel, you can do this.

  17. Units in AI 2018 not functioning properly

    The new update to Illustrator, 2018, seems to be having issues with files made in previous versions of Illustrator, as of 10/19/17. I'm having trouble setting the Units. When I try to set my rulers to inches, they seem to remain at points - even the properties pallet.

    Although, I just reinstalled 2017 (on 10/20/17) because of these bugs and when I launched the AI app from the CC app, it launched the 2018 version (since I had not yet uninstalled it). When I checked again, this issue seems to have been resolved since yesterday. I kept double checking and…
