  2. Properties panel bug

    When you edit word in properties panel and you want to change first few letters in word from normal to bold. It will show you change but when you deselect type tools it will change entire word to bold. But if you go trough type panel everything is fine.

    And if you change stroke size in properties panel to 0,5 pt it will apply 5 pt, for 0,25 pt 25 pt and for 0,75pt 75pt stroke.

  4. Layer panel not working with document multiple windows

    Hi, I have the AI latest release (21.1.0) and I'm facing an issue with multiple windows on two different screens of the same project.
    The layers panel is not responding when I want to open a layer tree, block and hide/show.

    I read there are some problems with the GPU preview so I tried to disabled it but the problem is still there.

    I try to explain what I'm doing:
    1. Open an empty New Document
    2. Add two new layers
    3. Draw something on every layer
    4. Duplicate the window going to Window > New Window (I want to…

  6. Off-center FIT TO SCREEN when copy/pasting object

    Hello - I'm about as expert an illustrator user can get - for years I've used FIT ARTBOARD (option-0) as a way to cut/paste pixel perfectly centered artwork. The latest AI version 2017 is off - I realize align to artboard is the intended feature to attain this effect, however that way somewhat stinks because you can't make into a shortkey. Why doesn't (command-0) no longer perfectly center my artboard? (NOTE: the off-centered-ness varies from .1 to .01 inches - so very small -- but significant if you're doing engineering grade designs) -- thank you.

  7. SVG Export ignores layer id <g> tag for some artboards and layers, but not all of them

    When exporting to SVG, some tags are ignored and some are not for the same document and export event.
    I tried reproducing the problem and were successful.
    Also, I tried fixing the problem and were, in a sense, successful.

    Fixed it using the assets option on the export panel: it creates 2 layers <g> tags. One of them has the correct naming (stroke) and the other is just generic (Layer2). The compiler put stroke inside layer2. Not good for my automation process and where did layer_2 come from? I did not create it.

    Another fix is to save…

  9. "Place copy" of RGB CC library item in CMYK doc changes document color setting to RGB

    Illustrator 21.1.0
    1. Created text or other items in an RGB AI doc.
    2. Add to CC library via drag and drop.

    3. Open CMYK AI doc
    4. Right click the RGB item and select "Place Copy" (looks like that's cut off on the GIF — probably recorded with too few frames).

    Expected result: RGB items converted to CMYK

    Actual result: CMYK doc converted to RGB

  10. Can't see anchor point and handles of paths after breaking link to symbol.

    1. Version 21.1.0
    2. Draw the circle or any other simple shape, convert it to symbol then break link to symbol. Choose Direct selection tool and click on any anchor point. As result you will not see the handles of any point. The handles are shown only in isolation mode or outline mode but not in basic prewiew mode.

  11. CC 2018: Objects on top of textframes are no longer selectable

    I made a clear video to illustrate this (annoying) bug.
    My colleague has not yet updated Illustrator and is using the latest 2017 version.
    I have updated to 2018.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1bUmXCcssg

    In the video you see:
    - On notebook 1: I created a textfield with rectangle on top. I can select the textframe and the rectangle on top easily. They are on the same layer.
    - On notebook 2: I did the exact same, but it has become impossible to select the rectangle.

    I cannot imagine this is done on purpose.
    I understand that I would not be able to select…

  12. Spelling mistake in the touchbar Arrange option

    On the newer MacBook Pros with touchbar, there's a spelling mistake if you go to the arrange option on the touchbar. It says "Bring Froward" instead of the usual: "Bring Forward"

  13. Properties panel causing inconsistent tab group behaviour

    The new Properties panel has a fixed width. When it's in a tab group with panels that don't have a fixed width (eg. the Layers panel), the tab group exhibits different behaviours depending on whether the tab group is docked or free-floating.

    When the tab group is free floating, switching between the tabs causes the panel to change width according to each tab's setting, which is what you would expect. Eg. Go to the Layers tab and make the panel very wide. Switch to the Properties tab and the panel auto-shrinks. Switch back to the Layers panel and the width…

  14. Deleting Successive Artboards

    If you have a list of artboards and try and delete several of them in a row, deleting one will deselect the list. This is not a major issue in most cases, but it is a nuisance when having to quickly delete 40 or more artboards; it doubles the number of commands that need to be inputted before reaching the same result.

  15. Empty artboard name which changes itself when artboard is resized

    I have a simple template for business card, made long ago, with a single artboard inside.
    Today I created new document based on this template and AI22 has shown this single artboard with no name (which was never touched in template and always was default 'Artboard 1'). It displays as 'Artboard 1' in Artboards paleette, but tag is missing.
    Next, when I add height to this artboard in Control panel, it got renamed to 'Artboard 2', both in tag and palette.
    If I undo this and make change again, it got 'Artboard 3' and so on.
    I expect this artboard…

  17. 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.

  20. Crashes on "Cancel" in Keyboard Shortcuts Window

    1. Illustrator CC 2017 (21.1.0)
    2. Pressed "Cancel" in the Keyboard Shortcuts window.
    3. Expected Keyboard Shortcuts window to close without saving changes.
    4. Illustrator crashes

    No plugins installed.

    Removing preferences resolves the bug, but something in the process of re-setting my preferences makes the bug return.
