  1. Opacity mask editing mode is broken, changes made are not visible unless Clip / Invert option is selected

    I am experiencing a very new issue with Illustrator: when I draw something upon an opacity mask, the effect is not shown in real time.

    Never happened something similar before.

    I'm trying different settings with CPU preview, and also the relevant flag in the preferences (Draw and modify in real time, under "Performance" tab, hte last line) but does not seem to affect.

    This has been happening since the latest update.

  2. Export for Screens via ExtendScript is slow and appears to have stopped

    Description:
    When I run Export for Screens via ExtendScript, it slows down and looks frozen. The rainbow cursor will appear.

    It actually works, and will finish if I wait long enough. It seems to take about 10 times longer than running it manually from the GUI.

    This is especially noticeable when exporting JPEGs. If the image to be exported is large to some extent, it will hardly progress after the progress bar reaches about 99%. CPU usage will be around 100%.
    Example: When exporting 8 1700x1000px artboards at 300ppi, it takes 157.636 seconds (the weight of each JPEG is 2.9MB).

  3. 字形パネルメニュー「標準字形に戻す」の仕様が間違っている

    日本語版Illustratorの字形パネルメニューには、メニュー項目「標準字形に戻す」があります。

    期待する「標準字形に戻す」の仕様:
    選択文字からGSUBフィーチャーが取り除かれ、そのフォントのデフォルトグリフが表示される。ただしccmpのようなデフォルトで有効なフィーチャーは除く。InDesignはこの仕様。

    現在の日本語版Illustratorの「標準字形に戻す」の仕様:
    選択文字にGSUBフィーチャー「fwid」(等幅全角字形)が付与され、等幅全角字形のグリフが表示されてしまう。

    標準字形の意味は、デフォルトグリフ(フォント内のcmapテーブルでマッピングされているグリフ)です。標準字形が「fwid」を意味することは決してありません。InDesignの仕様が正しく、Illustratorの仕様は間違っています。

    おそらく字形パネルが実装された当初から間違っており、現在でも間違ったままです。ユーザーはこの間違った仕様にいつも苦しめられています。

  4. 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?

    I am closing the ticket due to lack of response.
    Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Please give a reference to this post so that we can identify you.
    Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

  5. Playing Save for Web operation from action produces different result than a direct operation

    1. Rename the .txt file to .aia
    2. Load this file as a set into Actions panel
    3. Open the .ai document (make sure that linked .tif file is loaded)
    4. Export the file using Save For Web command. Set size to 200% and save the result as 1.jpg
    5. Run the 'Test' action form the loaded set. Save the image as 2.jpg

    Compare both files. 2.jpg is looking more red than 1.jpg
    No profiles attached to JPGs.

    1. Run the action again
    2. While the S4W dialog is open, go to Optimize menu (hamburger button in top right corner) and disable 'Convert to sRGB' option

  6. Blue learn box won't go away

    I cannot see part of my workspace because the blue learn box covers up the panels and I cannot get it to go away. How am I supposed to use your program when your supposedly helpful box covers up what I need to see in order to create projects? This is unbelievably frustrating, and I am probably going to have to use some other program to create my logo since I cannot use the work space because of this idiotic blue learn bubble that won't go away and can't be moved, apparently.

  8. Saving to Creative Cloud is Changing My Patterns

    This has to do with repeating patterns. I'm using Adobe Illustrator 2021, desktop.
    Attached is a picture of 2 circles on a background (shield your eyes, it isn't pretty :-)). When I make the pattern - in this case, the circles were drawn with the blob brush - the inside of the 2 circles is empty and we can all see the background. It's a ring. When I pull that pattern out of swatches, however, it will color in that background. In this one, it's black. It changes depending on the pattern and the colors I'm using. And it is…

  10. Black Boxes appear and Unable to zoom past 1600% when GPU performance is turned off in Illustrator 25.3.1

    Well, I updated illustrator today and have major viewing issues.

    Black Boxes appear when selecting outlined text with the direct selection tool, when moving a shape, and in the upper left corner when viewing artboard. Everything disappears when zooming in more than 2400% in Preview mode and has a pixelated outline.

    MacOS Catalina version 10.15.6

  11. reading XMP data in scripts broken by 25.4 update.

    Illustrator 25.4 update broke scripts that try to read XMP data that worked in previous versions of Illustrator. This is the Mac version (have not tried in Windows).

    It appears to be getting the error on this line:

    ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript = new ExternalObject('lib:AdobeXMPScript');

    Comparing the frameworks in the package contents for 25.3.1 vs 25.4, the AdobeXMPScript framework appears to be missing in 25.4.

    Below is an example script to read font data that worked in 25.3, but errors loading the library in 25.4

    // load XMP Library

    function loadXMPLibrary() {

    if (!ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript) {  
    
       try {  
    
           ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript = new ExternalObject('lib:AdobeXMPScript');  
    
       } catch

  12. 色違いで作ったパターンがコピペされない

    MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 Illustrator 2021(25.3.1)

    同じ模様のパターンの色違い3つ作成(ABCとする)→
    ABCに塗ったオブジェクトをコピー→
    別ファイルにペースト→
    オブジェクトすべてがAの塗りになり、BCのパターンはペーストされない

    コピペされないBCを別のオブジェクトに塗り
    再度コピペしても、勝手にAの塗りに変換されます。
    同ファイル内でコピペしても同じ現象がおきます。

  14. Missing Files Dialogue keeps re-appearing

  15. pixel preview doesn't refresh correctly until reapplied.

    Steps to reproduce:
    - New document with units set to pixels
    - view: 'snap to pixel' and 'pixel preview' turned on.
    - Use the rectangle tool to make a new shape, eg. 20 pixels square.
    - Set the fill colour to a high contrast colour (eg. dark grey) and turn off the stroke
    - zoom the view, move around.

    Expected result:
    - the rectangle should appear pixel-perfect (sharp) against the pixel grid, with no anti-aliased bluring
    - the view should acurately update when I zoom and move around to display pixel perfect artwork

    Actual result:
    - the rectangle is bordered…

  16. テキストの半角スペースに点が現れる

    Ver 25.3.1 windows

    25.3.1にバージョンアップすると突然テキストの半角スペースにピリオドが現れました。

    1. テキストに半角スペースを打つ
    2. テキストに線幅を入れて縁取りにする
    3. その線の線端を丸型線端にする

    するとスペース部分に点が現れます。テキストをアウトライン化すると消えますが、そのままPDF書き出しすると残ります。

  17. Dashed line not working

    I have the latest build of Illustrator 2021 for macOS Big Sur. When I try to apply the dashed line feature to lines or shapes, the effect does not show up. It’s as if I never clicked it. What’s going on here? I’ve never experienced this in past versions of Illustrator. I even tried deleting my preferences. Still nothing. This is so frustrating!

  18. 行頭禁則文字に関わる和欧文間隔をカスタマイズ可能に!

    Illustratorの日本語組版で、たとえばプリセットの文字組アキ量設定「行末約物半角」を元に、和欧文間隔を「0%」にカスタマイズしても、そのカスタマイズの結果は、何故か「行頭禁則文字」に分類される文字種には効果がありません。
    ※添付ファイルをご参照くださいませ(macOS Catalina上のCC2021にて作成)。

    日本語組版の中では、デフォルトの「25%」アキを「12.5%」あるいは「0%」としたいという作業は少なからず発生しますが、上記のような挙動では、作業者の負担になるばかりです。

    可能であれば、「文字組アキ量設定和欧文間隔のカスタマイズが、行頭禁則文字にも効くように」改善することを希望します。
    挙動を変更していただければ、作業者の負担も軽減され、喜んで受け入れられるに違いありません。

    なお、このような挙動の変更は、「文字組みアキ量設定に頼らずなんらかの方法で和欧文間隔を変更した既存ファイル」にはあまり影響がないものと考えますが、変更していただくならば、【その変更を周知】していただくことは大切なことだと申し添えておきます。

    よろしくお願いします。

  19. 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.
