  1. 縦組みテキストの行末にある、縦中横の括弧類のアキが不均衡

    縦組みテキストの中で、行末に縦中横の括弧類を配置することがあります。例えば「100gの水にとける物質の質量〔g〕」のような文です。

    その場合〔g〕の"〔"は50%アキ、"〕"は0%アキになり、文がセンターに揃わなくなります。縦組みの縦中横で括弧類が両端にあるとき、両方のアキが0%になるとありがたいです。

    環境

    • macOS 12.7.3(Apple Silicon)
    • Illustrator 2024(28.5.0) この仕様がいつからあるのかわかりませんが、少なくともCS6では再現します。

    再現手順

    1. 縦組みポイント文字に「100gの水にとける物質の質量〔g〕」と打つ
    2. 〔g〕に縦中横をかける

    期待する結果

    括弧はそれぞれアキ0%になり、文はセンターに揃います。

    実際の結果

    "〔"は50%アキ、"〕"は0%アキになり、文がセンターに揃わなくなります。

    回避策

    • 文字組アキ量設定をなしにすると各アキは50%になり、ひとまずセンターには揃う
    • 行末に縦中横でない文字を追加すると各アキは50%になり、ひとまずセンターには揃う
    • 行末にカーニング500を追加すると各アキは50%になり、ひとまずセンターには揃う

  3. Objects from CC library placed in document, then embedded, do not respond logically to alignment commands.

    I've encountered this on three different apple machines over 2 years. Currently:
    1. macOS Monterey 12.7.5
    2. Illustrator 28.5
    3. Create graphic (ex. a logo) and add it to a CC Library. Place the Object in a new document. Embed it. Use direct select tool to select bounding box and delete it (so logo can be selected to change fill color, for example). Try to align object to either key object or artboard. It's likely the logo will move errantly left or right.
    4. I expect align to work as with a normal (non library) object.
    5. Video attached.

  7. The small Generative AI marketing window won't close.

    When starting work this morning, a small marketing window popped up inviting me to try Generative AI. I click on the little X in the upper corner but it wouldn't close without restarting Illustrator. These marketing windows are interfering with production and are useless, please stop using them.

  8. Incomplete Bug Fix on Legacy Text Disappearing in v28

    Illustrator CC 2018.(No problem before 2017)
    Updated text disappears when opening a file of old data such as version 10 or lower by a specific operation and updating the text portion.

    ・Prepare and open files of version 10 or lower
    ・To confirm whether to update the legacy text on the warning screen, click [OK] to not update
    ・Save immediately
    ・Open the saved file
    ・Click on the legacy text part with the mouse
    ・On the warning screen, click [Update]
    → The text that should have been updated disappears

  9. Aligning doesn’t work for groups with strange empty unselectable objects inside, imported from SVGs (originally made with Illustrator)

    Several objects were made in Illustrator and exported to SVGs.
    Later they were imported back into Illustrator.
    Please take a look at both the GIF and the file atached.

    When one tries to select all the top-level groups and align them to left — it doesn’t work.
    Aligning to center and to right works, but once these get aligned to right — aligning to center stops working too.

    When exploring layers, it’s clear that these groups have something else inside besides rectangles — but only in Layers, not on canvas. These can’t be selected or changed, only rearranged, renamed, deleted.

  10. Drop shadows appear lighter in v28.1

    Drop shadows appear lighter in version 28.1 compared to previous versions.

    Applying a drop shadow and opening the same file side-by-side in two versions makes this clear. Both shadows have the same settings, files have the same colour settings and profile, and are displayed on the same monitor.

    The example images show version 28.1 and 27.9, but the change is evident between 28.0 and 28.1.

  13. Illustrator Crashes if any raster image fill color assigned as spot

    I have a illustrator file that contains linked PSDs. I used Grayscale PSD linked images as Spot color. But illustrator 28.5 (macOS M3 Max) crashes when playing with the PSD linked images. I am thinking about it related with rendering.

    I can not work with grayscale linked images as spot color.

    I reported crash handles to Adobe and Apple.

    Is this bug logged before? If anyone need the report file then I can send it.

  14. Align / Distribute ignores Constrain Angle

    The Align and Distribute options do not take into account the Constrain Angle setting when the Constrain Angle is not equal to zero. In simpler terms, the Constrain Angle for Align and Distribute is always set to zero.

  15. Variation in exported image size based on coordinate position when using Asset Export

    I think I'm seeing a bug in the size of an exported image when using Asset Export for Illustrator v27.5 on Windows 10 22H2 19045.3803. Here's what I've done and the result I'm seeing:

    • Create a new empty document, I used an artboard size of 60" x 36" with coordinates (0", 0")
    • Add a square to Layer 1 sized to 5" x 5" with a position of (10", 10")
    • Create a new layer, Layer 2

  16. 生成されるグラデーションはグラデーションではない

    2024年前半頃に作成したデータについて解説します。
    グラデーションツールで単色(特色濃度100%)から透明(特色濃度0%)になるグラデーションです。(A参照)黒の矢印で指し示している部分までは均等に濃度100%が入るはずなのですが、データ上でもよく見ると黒の矢印で指し示している位置の前後が濃い色になっているのがわかるでしょうか。このデータを最終、印刷(印刷業者に依頼)まで進めて商品をお客様に納品したところ、納品先の顧客からクレームが入りました。納品された商品を見るとAの写真で示したように黒の矢印周辺が一番色味が濃く出ており(筋が入ったような状態)本来矢印より下の部分も全く同じ色(濃度100%)で出るべきところが薄くなっているんです。(参照B)
    しかも濃度100%より上の部分がすごく汚いムラのあるグラデーションになっています。
    私自身、DTP業界で20年以上仕事をしていますが、年々イラレの品質低下が著しいことを恐らく長年愛用されている方ほどお気づきかと思います。
    20年程前もグラデーションツールで作成したグラデーションをフィルム印刷するとグラデーションの段階がまるで階段のように縞々にでたことを思い出しますが、その解決方法として使用していたのがブレンドツールという強い味方。ステップ数を細かすぎるというくらいに細かい設定にすることでスムースなグラデーションを再現できます。
    が、しかし。
    今回の件で次回の印刷に向けて解決策を講じようとブレンドツールで同じグラデーションを作成したものの、いくらステップ数を増やそうとも、なめらかなグラデーションにならないのです。(C参照)
    そしてcの画像を見て観察眼の鋭い方ならお気づきかと思いますが、
    テップ数50のところを見て気づきませんか。一段一段のステップがグラデーション表現されており、そのグラデーションがまさに上に向かってゆくにつれて濃く表現されていることを。
    本来であればもちろん一段一段のステップが同じ均一の色味になるので絶対にこういう表現になるはずがないですよね。
    グラデーション表現の不具合と同じことが、このブレンドツールに於いても起こっています。

    今回実際に商品としてお客様に納品しており、このグラデーションの不具合が原因で金銭的損失を被りました。
    グラデーションツールに問題があった時の回避策としてブレンドツールを使っていたのに、それも使い物にならないとなったら、この手のデザインは使えなくなります。
    深刻に受け止めていただきたいですし、細部にまで注意を払って改善していただきたいです。

  18. 「クロスと重なり」を含むシンボルの書き出し結果が正しくない - Exporting symbols containing Intertwine results wrong.

    「クロスと重なり」を含むシンボルを画像に書き出すと、正しい体裁になりません。

    • psd、pdf、Webpでは正しい体裁になるが、それ以外の保存形式では欠けたような状態で書き出される

    • 「スクリーン用に書き出し」、「書き出し形式」、「Web用に保存(従来)」、どのメニューコマンドでも同様

    • 「アセットの書き出し」では「書き出し」ボタンをクリックしても書き出しが実行されない

    • Illustrator 2023、2024で確認

    再現手順:
    1. 「クロスと重なり」を含むアートワークでシンボルを作成し、インスタンスを配置する
    2. 「スクリーン用に書き出し」などを使って画像に書き出す(psd、pdf、Webp以外の保存形式を選ぶ)

    実際の結果:
    「クロスと重なり」の部分が欠けたような状態で書き出される

    期待された結果:
    画面どおりの体裁で画像が書き出される

    回避方法:
    「クロスと重なり」を「分割・拡張」などで拡張してからシンボルに登録する

    ---- English *Use translation tool ----

    Exporting symbols containing "Intertwine" does not give correct results.

    • As psd, pdf, and webp, the result is correct. But in other formats, they are exported as missing.

    • Same result with "Exports for screens", "Export as", "Save for Web (Legacy)" or any menu command.

    • "Asset Export" does not export even if the "Export" button is clicked.

    • Check with Illustrator 2023 and 2024

    How to reproduce:
    1. Create a symbol with artwork containing "Intertwine" and place an instance.
    2.…

  19. ドキュメントのラスタライズ効果設定が300ppiの場合でもApple Color Emojiが低い解像度でラスタライズされる

    macOS Ventura / iMac27inch i5/32GB/1TB
    Illustrator ver.28.3(カラーフォントに対応したバージョン全てで同様の挙動だと思われます。)

    問題が発生したときに実行していた手順
    1. テキストツールを使いアートボード上をクリックしテキスト入力モードに
    2. 字形パレット上で任意の絵文字をダブルクリック
    3. アートボード上のポイントテキストに絵文字が入力されるので、サイズを15pt程度に設定する。
    4. メニューより「書式→アウトラインを作成」を実行する。
    5. ビットマップ系のカラーグリフのフォントなのでビットマップに変換されるが、アウトライン前の表示に対して著しい解像度低下が起きる。

    想定していた結果
    アウトライン化後もアウトライン前と同程度の品質のビットマップとしてラスタライズされる。

    実際の結果
    72ppiでラスタライズした状態になる為、ドキュメントのラスタライズ効果設定にて300ppi等の高解像度設定を行っている場合、想定した品質のものにならない。

    AppleColorEmojiフォントは各グリフをpng形式で持つカラーグリフフォントです。Illustratorはこのフォントを表示するために、当フォントが数種類内包するサイズ違いのStrikeの内のもっともピクセル数の多いStrike8を利用してレンダリングします。これは各グリフが160px×160pxのサイズで、上記の手順での表示品質を充分担保できるサイズと言えます。
    しかし、アウトライン化の際、Illustratorはこのフォントが持つpngデータを利用せず、一律で「RGB/72ppi/アンチエイリアス無し」の設定でラスタライズします。そのせいで本来フォントが持つディテイルが失われます。「ドキュメントのラスタライズ効果設定」が300ppiの場合15piのグリフは60px×60px程度のサイズでラスタライズされることが期待されるのですが、72ppiで処理される為に半分程度のサイズとなります。
    アウトライン化という意味では埋め込み画像を生成する際にフォントが持つpngを読み出して配置するのが理想であると考えます。しかし、ドキュメント解像度にあわせたラスタライズ処理を行うという処理も合理的ではあります。
    いずれにせよ、データの品質を担保する意味でもドキュメントのラスタライズ効果設定に応じた処理をお願いします。

  20. Menu selection of window stuck after clicking on "Font" without selecting further option

    After selecting the menu item "window" → "Font" (without the sub-menu) the menu freezes. No further access to the program possible. After ending the program (OS - option, not program option) the window with the document disappeared (without asking for saving), the menu remained on screen (see screenshot). Only forced ending worked.
