    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 26.0.1 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!

  2. 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.

  3. Canvas Rotation Feature is obstructing regular pinching in or out gesture for zooming, when using the trackpad

    When using the pinching in or out gesture on the trackpad, to zoom in or out.
    The artboard gets rotated very easily if there is even a slight rotation in the gesture while.

    And then part 2 of problem. Its impossible to set it back to 0degrees. It keeps snapping between some low degrees

  5. SVG text exportation creates a fragmented code

    All texts I wrote in a drawing, when exported to SVG files, were not anymore consistent: fragments of texts were overlapping each others.
    I opened SVG file using a text reader and I discovered that my texts were unnecessarily fragmented in many parts that finally were badly rebuild in the code.

  6. "Align dash to corners and path ends" is broken in 2022.

    See title.

    Here's two screengrabs of 2021 and 2022 with the following done in them:

    1. Draw an 800x800 pt circle in the middle of the canvas.
    2. Set the stroke to 800px wide, black, dashed line on, 12pt in the first dash box, no other gaps/dashes, turn on "align dash to corners and path ends".

    2021 renders evenly, as expected, 2022 has the dashes at weird off-kilter angles.

    2022 will render evenly if I switch to "preserve exact dash and gap lengths".

    Observed on 26.0.2, both with my usual plugins and with them removed, maybe i'll try updating later today to…

  14. Square brackets hotkeys used for Increase/Decrease Diameter don’t work when input language is Russian

    If you have default [ and ] keys set for Increase/Decrease Diameter, you have to have English input language set to make these work (at least on Windows).

    In Russian these keys on a keyboard occupied with 'х' (Russian 'ha') and 'ъ' (Russian hard sign). Pressing them does not change the diameter.

    But these do work in Photoshop, and basically elsewhere... except for Illustrator.

  15. Align to Center fails on imported .AI file, continuously moves right

    Mac OS Monterey 12.4
    Intel Core i5
    Adobe Illustrator (desktop) 26.3.1

    When I use the align panel or the toolbar to align the Great Seal of California, an imported .AI file, to the center of the artboard, it instead moves a number of pixels to the right. After multiple attempts, it moves to the edge of the artboard. This error does not affect other assets in the document. The error persists when switching from "align to artboard" to "align to selection".

    See attached file.

  16. Please Fix: Function "create outline" unpredictably results in pixel error

    Converting a path by the "create outline" function unpredictably results in pixel errors. See pictures:
    Pic1.: Path object in pixel preview. Position is correct.
    Pic2.: Result after applying "create outline" function.
    Position of outline path is wrong in fourth place after comma leading to a grey fragment. The only solution is to repair every outline in a very time consuming process. In my view is a critical error when trying to work pixel perfect. Please solve this issue!

  18. color picker - thin grey line between comparison swatches

    Today I noticed a thin grey line between the comparison color swatches on my color picker window. It puts a border between the swatches, meaning I can't directly compare their color. It's driving me nuts!

    I checked with coworkers, I'm the only one having this issue. It happens regardless of what document I'm working on. All my coworkers and myself are using the latest version of illustrator CC and are using up-to-date windows 10.

  19. カラーコード入力で色を変えると戻れない

    Illustrator 26.2.1
    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。

    ご対応のほどよろしくお願い致します。
