  1. Expanding an Inside / Outside stroke creates barely open paths

    1. Create a rectangle
    2. Apply a thick stroke to it and change its alignment to Inside or Outside
    3. Expand Appearance for the shape
    4. Deselect the shape
    5. Grab Direct selection and carefully move the corner points at the top right, for both paths

    It turns out Illustrator doesn’t keep these tidy! One is cut open, another has a doubled point! It leads to a problems later, when we try, e.g. to make corners rounded, or apply effects.

    A current workaround is to apply Add (as Pathfinder operation or an effect) to the stroke, separately form the fill... and it’s taxing for memory,…

  2. 「オーバープリントブラック...」の不具合

    OS/macOS11.6.8
    Illustrator.ver.27.7(以前のバージョンから同様の挙動と考えられます)

    スタイルの当たったテキストをCMYKの黒100でオーバーライドしたものに対して「編集→カラーを編集→オーバープリントブラック」を適用するとCMYK黒100の部分がスタイルのカラーにフォールバックする。

    再現方法
    1.テキストフレームを用意し塗りに対して明るい色を設定した段落スタイルを適用する。
    2.任意のテキストの塗りに対してCMY各0、K100のCMYKブラックを適用する。
    3.このテキストフレームを選択し「編集→カラーを編集→オーバープリントブラック」を適用する。
    4.CMYK黒で指定した部分は塗りに対してオーバープリントが設定されるが塗りがスタイルカラーに戻る。

    期待する結果
    「編集→カラーを編集→オーバープリントブラック」を適用してもスタイルを適用したあとでCMYKブラックをオーバーライドした部分の色が変わらずオーバープリント属性が設定される。

    実際の結果
    「編集→カラーを編集→オーバープリントブラック」を適用するとスタイルを適用したあとでCMYKブラックをオーバーライドした部分の色が変スタイルカラーに変わってしまう。

    回避方法
    スタイルを適用した部分を黒でオーバーライドする際はCMYKブラックではなくグレースケールのブラックを利用すると回避可能。

    また、スタイルが適用されたあとCMYKブラックをオーバーライドされた部分のあるテキストフレームをスクリプトにてoverprint属性を適用しようとした場合も同様にスタイルカラーに戻ってしまいます。

    回避方法がありますが、CMYKブラックとグレースケールブラックで挙動が異なるのは問題です。オーバープリントブラック処理は最終的に処理を行う場合が多い処理です。意図しない色変化が生じるリスクはできるだけ避けたほうが良いです。早急に改善いただきたいと思います。

  5. Global Edit not working correctly

    I use Global Edit to count objects. It often says "Global Edit is currently not supported for more than 1000 highlighted objects." I know that there are a lot less than 1000 objects that I am trying to highlight.

  6. 警告無しに文字詰めが変化する

    ver.27において、マイナーバージョンリリース又はマイクロバージョンリリースにおいてオプティカルカーニングの仕様が度々変更されています。これ自体は改善の意味合いの強い対応で仕様変更と考えます。
    しかし、仕様変更以前のバージョンの文字組み仕様が異なるにもかかわらず、なんの警告も無しに文字組みが変化します。こういったケースではユーザーに注意を促す警告を表示するべきでしょう。

    再現手順
    1. Illustrator ver.26.5にてエリア内文字を作成し文字間のカーニングを「オプティカル」に設定し、均等配置を指定する。
    2.Illustrator2020形式で保存する。
    3.Illustrator ver.27.9で開いてTツールを用いてエリア内文字にカーソルを入れるか、テキスト自体を移動する。
    4.カーニングの状態が変化する。

    期待する結果
    カーニングが変化する際は警告を表示する。

    実際の結果
    なんの警告もなくカーニングが変化する。

    理想を言えば、既存のファイルに対して新しいカーニング値を自動的に適用せずに以前と全く同じ表示にするのが良いですが、仕様の変更自体は改善の意味合いが強く、仕方ない面もあるかと思います。しかし、編集しているユーザーが、この変化に気が付かない事によりデータトラブルを誘発する可能性もあります。
    これは2022の最終バージョンが書き出す2020形式のファイルでも起こる挙動です。影響を受けるファイルは相当数存在するはずですから、せめて警告が表示されるようにしていただきたいと思います。

  7. Mixed stroke colors become white when changing fills using CMYK spectrum in an RGB document

    There is a way to make objects loose their stroke colors in specific conditions.
    1. Create an RGB document
    2. Create two shapes
    3. Make them have same fill color, but different stroke colors
    4. Select both
    5. In Control panel Shift+click the arrow button next to the fill chip, to call the alternate UI with sliders and spectrum instead of Swatches view
    6. In this dropdown panel’s menu pick CMYK

    Strokes become white.

    This does not happen if the color mode in this panel is left RGB or HSB.
    Also, strokes become white if you pick a color in…

  8. The menu does not respond well right after Illustrator launches

    en_US

    Immediately after starting Illustrator, the menu does not respond to clicks and only works once every two times. Also, the phenomenon occurs that opening a new document does not show up the first time. Focusing on another application and refocusing on Illustrator fixes the problem.

    While investigating the cause, it seems to be triggered by the presence of an invalid plugin or its warning screen. Without it, it worked fine.

    Steps to reproduce

    1. Put the invalid plugin into Illustrator's plugin folder
    2. Start Illustrator
    3. Click the File menu

    Expected result

    The File menu will open.

    Actual result

    Nothing happens. A…

  9. 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.

  10. Distribute Spacing options not available in keyboard shortcut list

    When the Distribute Spacing options were added to the Align panel, they were not added to the Keyboard Shortcuts panel. They remain unavailable in v28.0.x. This is an oversight, obviously, that should not be hard to remedy but will make life much easier for those of us who rely on kbscs and/or auxiliary devices like Stream Deck, Logitech G-keys, or Xencelabs' Quick Keys, etc.

  11. カラーウィンドウの改善

    以前からカラーの数値入力はTabキーを使用して移動していました。
    2024年版は#が追加され、そこから更にTabキーを押すと上に移動せず全てのタブが閉じてしまいます。
    タブを閉じずに上の入力に戻るよう改善をお願いいたします。

  12. Dimension tool prefers to snap to or edit an existing dimension instead of starting or completing a new one

    Take a look at the GIF.
    I need to measure the width of one square, and then measure the overall width of both squares.

    I create the first dimension with no problem.
    However, when I try to create the second one, Ai plays dumb.

    When I click the leftmost point, the tool thinks that I am to EDIT the existing dimension (although I am clicking and not click-and-dragging, and I am clicking an endpoint of it, and not in the middle!)

    Well... I can lock the first dimension (which would require me to abort, select the first one, lock, and…

  13. Width tool started work weird after update 27.9

    After this update, width tool on closed shapes instead of acting like they are shapes with continuous edges, it cuts the width at a point.

    I use width tool a lot and this is problematic.

    Oh and in some cases width point not showing.

  14. 均等配置したエリア内文字をポイント文字に切り換えると開始位置がずれる

    エリア内文字が均等配置で設定されている場合、ポイント文字に切り換えるとエリア内文字のエリアの半分開始位置がシフトする。

    mac0S 11.6.8 (Intel/imac27inch)
    Illustrator ver.27.9.0
    1. Tツールをドラッグしてエリア内文字を作成・入力する。
    2. 段落パネルにて1のエリア内文字に均等配置(どれでも良い)を設定
    3. 「書式→ポイント文字に切り換え」を実行。
    4. ポイント文字に変更されるが、開始位置がシフトする。

    期待する結果
    切り換えを行っても開始位置はずれない。

    実際の結果
    ポイントテキストの開始位置が大きくずれる。

  15. Making adjustments to a value within a panel's field, either through a scroll wheel or a swipe up/down gesture, operates inversely.

    1) Click on a field with a certain value in a panel (e.g., "Keyboard Increment" value in the "Properties" panel).
    2) Scroll up or down to adjust its value.
    3) Scrolling up will result in decreasing the value.
    4) Scrolling down will now result in increasing the value.

    This is counter intuitive. It should work vice versa. Scrolling UP should INCREASE the value, and scrolling DOWN should DECREASE it.
    Please, fix it.

  16. accent change fonts

    When we use Variable Concepr Fonts if I write text that contain letters with accents, the style of the typography changes. It's quite annoying.

  17. Dimensions get expanded when moved, with or without related objects

    I can somewhat understand dimension object get expanded when they are moved away from the measured object... although this should not happen.

    But why the dimension objects get expanded when they are moved WITH the measured object? What, Ai can’t distinguish moving form other transformation? What if need to move my artwork to just insert something else — what, this makes all of my dimensions instantly dead?

    Don’t expand dimensions until a user has an clear intention to do it!

  19. Zoom with Alt+wheel is way too sensitive in new v27.3 to the point of being unusable

    This has just started with the new update to v27.3 using the Alt and the scroll wheel now causes intermittent massive jumps in zoom. Updated all my Logitech software. Running latest everything so reverting to 27.2 as this makes Illustrator unusable. How on earth did this get through any sort of testing?

  20. Pie chart problem with small values

    When I create a pie chart that contains small values along large ones, Illustrator will just delete the small ones.

    These numbers are the original (and the smallest value just disappears):

    25
    12
    5
    4
    3
    2
    58
    17
    1832

    If I change the two smallest values to 5 and 4 it will render these slices.

    25
    12
    5
    4
    5
    4
    58
    17
    1832

    I know it's very small but I do need them to be present.

    When needed I can provide screenshots.
