  1. Illustrator suddenly switching to CPU preview, GPU preview greyed out

    My little research has shown that the preview mode changes when zooming if the cmyk document contains cmyk images. In a cmyk document with rgb images or an rgb document with rgb/cmyk images, there is no gpu to cpu preview switching when zooming. To reproduce the bug, the document must include multiple images in order to impact performance during scaling. My system: i5 8400, 32 Gb, GTX1650 with latest Studio Driver installed, Asus PA329C, windows 11 Build 22621.1265, Illustrator 27.3.1 Here's what it looks like on my system.

  2. Enter key does not commit a change in a panel / dialog / field

    Transparency panel in Appearance window does not react on Enter in Illustrator 27.0

    After the latest update, this bug is spotted. In Appearance window -> Opacity panel (either stroke or fill) -> enter desired opacity -> hit Enter/CR -> no reaction (expected: apply value and close the Opacity panel). The TAB button however still works (the value applies). Other panels work as they should and react Enter correctly.

    OS: Mac OS 13.

  3. Illustrator fails to export all text into final pngs or jpegs

    I have been exporting images with text layers and I've noticed Illustrator seems to indiscriminately not export certain lines of text (not layer groups to be clear, but random lines of text). I don't know how to replicate this issue because it appears random, but I did include pngs of the file that I had this issue with most recently.

  4. Blank screen on start up and missed new features on new v. 27.6 (English language on Windows 10)

    Just updated to the new version 27.6 in English language on Windows 10 pro, at the start up the home screen is totally blank (only the layout color instead of open, new file etc. buttons). Anyway I'm able to open files o new files from the menu. There is no trace of the new Ai features or of the other improvements coming with this new release. I tried both update from the previous version and install from scratch after cancelled the previous one but with no results.

  5. Windows版27.3.1で現行版MS-IME利用時にCtrl+ホイール移動でフリーズ

    Windows版27.3.1+MS-IMEが現行版(旧バージョンにしていない)の場合、Ctrl+マウスホイールによる横スクロールを実行するとフリーズします

    1. Windowsの設定で、日本語IMEの全般設定で「以前のバージョンのMicrosoft IMEを使う」をOFFの状態(デフォルト状態)
    2. 27.3.1で新規ファイルを作成する
    3. Ctrl+マウスホイールで横スクロールを繰り返す

    この操作のみでフリーズし、一切の操作がきかなくなります。

    「以前のバージョンのMicrosoft IMEを使う」をONにすることで回避はできますが、従来の27.2ではこの問題は起きていませんでした。

  8. Color Picker lets objects disappear in Outline Mode and in Exports!

    When you use the Color Picker to change the color of texts, then this will lead to the problem, that every object of the same layer disappears in the Outline Mode AND much more worse: in the export.
    I made a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBYTfLfOpRU

    1. Create a new file.
    2. Create one ore more text objects. And some other path objects too, if you like.
    3. Use the Color Picker (!! not any other color tool) to change the color of a text.
    4. Go to the Outline Mode (ctrl+y) and see that every object seems to be invisible.
    5. Try to export the file (Export…

  9. Application name in dialogue box contains strange character

    Illustrator version 27.6 shows strange characters in dialogue box.
    The app name is $$$/GeneralStr/196=Adobe Illustrator.
    It feels not good, to use an app with a strange behavior like this.

  10. Alt/Opt clicking into the spectrum bar in Color panel now changes both fill and stroke on release

    When I hold Alt/Opt and drag the cursor over the spectrum bar, I am able to change the color of the inactive attribute — in this case stroke, since fill is activated. However, as soon as the mouse button is released, the fill gets changed to the picked color too! This was not the case in the the previous version.

  12. Illustrator turning all PNGs into negatives (with or without yellow background) after saving and reopening document

    I'm on Windows 10 pro, version 21H1. The version of illustrator I have is 26.3.1.
    When working on a document, CMYK or RGB, in illustrator with my Adobe color settings synced across all programs, all PNGs whether 16 bit or 8 bit turn negative. I've attached before and after screenshots.

    I've never had this happen before and I work with PNGs everyday, I spoke to and adobe support rep yesterday and gave them an AI filer where I tested PNGs vs JPEGs out. JPEGs are totally fine, only issue is with placing PNGs and I rather place a PNG than…

  13. ヒストリー項目が正しく表示されない

    問題の説明:
    MacOS10.15.7 IllustratorCC ver.26.4.1

    オブジェクトは複製されますが、ヒストリーパネル上では「取り消し」となります。

    再現手順:
    1. ダイレクト選択ツールを選び、アートボード上のオブジェクトを選択
    2. キーボードのリターンキーを押し移動ダイアログを開く
    3. コピーボタンをクリックする
    4. ヒストリーパネル上では「取り消し」と表示されるがオブジェクトは正常にコピーされる

    実際の結果:
    ヒストリーパネル上で「取り消し」と表示

    期待された結果:
    「コピー」と表示される

    回避方法:
    ありません。

    その他…
    ・編集→カラーを編集
    ・リピートオブジェクトの編集処理
    ・グラデーションツールによる処理
    ・ブレンドツールをダブルクリックしてブレンドオプションダイアログを開き変更を適用する

    これらも「取り消し」と表示されます。

    ツールバー下部、塗と線に下にある塗り、グラーデーション、塗りなしのパッチをドロップして「塗」「線」を設定しようとするとヒストリーパネルでは「取り消し」になります。

    段落パネルの多くの機能(インデント・段落前後あき以外)とOpenTypeパネルは項目が二重に追加されたりします。
    全般的にヒストリーパネルの表示はおかしいです。

  14. Version History Panel not displaying any content (previous versions, bookmarked, etc.)

    Problem:
    Version history panel is not displaying any content for my cloud documents (.aic), such as previous saved states, bookmarked, or even a prompt that it cannot save or no states exist. This is happening for all my existing AND new files. This only started happening on the latest illustrator update.

    My setup:
    Macbook Pro M1, OS Ventura 13.3.1
    Adobe Illustrator 27.4.1

    What I've tried to do:
    - Restart Creative Cloud and Macbook
    - Create and save a new .aic file

  15. Crashing repeatedly 26.4.1

    Since the update to Illustrator v 26.4.1 there have been repeated crashes.
    Crashes creating new document from template
    Crashing when copying and pasting objects into Illustrator and crashing when working in the document. Only using basic shapes, although some shapes do have legacy 3D effects on them.

  17. Unable to save

    This is not an idea, it is a serious bug.
    Apple OS Mojave - latest version, Illustrator 2022 - latest version.

    Saving doesn't happen. Clicking File>Save As and nothing happens, no dialogue pops up, nothing. Trying shortcuts on the keyboard. Same. Trying to quit the program, shows File not saved/ I click Save FIle and it does nothing. So, unless I force quit, there is no way to close the program. Illustrator seems to not initiate any action on my attempts to perform a SAVE. It is a HUGE problem for my work!

  20. Problem with Type on a Path after ver. 26.1 update

    Prior to updating Adobe Illustrator to ver. 26.1, a drawing with Type on a Path appears as it should. After the update, the text is positioned in a different place along the path. This is confirmed on a second computer. The same file opened on the second computer prior to the update appears normal, and after the update, the text is shifted.
