  1. Update 25.2.2 closes all the tabs instead of one tab at a time

    Just after downloading the latest update, instead of closing one tab/page at a time, Illustrator started to automatically close every single opened page. It's happening with both Command + W and via the close button at the top of the page.

    Please advise.

  2. Ver 23.3, When character unit is Q, spin button does not work properly with font size of character panel and control

    Version : 24.3
    OS : Windows and macOS

    1. Set the unit character to series (Q) in the environment settings
    2. Create point text and area text
    3. Change the font size of the character panel or control with the spin button.

    In this operation, the spin button does not work properly, and the size can be changed only within a specific range based on the character size at the time of selection.
    In the property panel, it works normally.
    Even if you enter it directly, a value with decimal will be entered instead of the entered value.
    Other units are normal.

  3. (Applescript) do javascript command no longer works in Illustrator 2021(25.1)

    Bug report:
    When using AppleScript's do javascript in Illustrator 2021(25.1), nothing happens regardless of whether it is a file or text. The result will return a missing value. In 25.0.1, it works fine.

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/applescript-do-javascript-command-no-longer-works-in-25-1/m-p/11737799?page=1&profile.language=en

    In the case of jsx files, it can be avoided by writing the following code. If the file extension is jsxbin, it cannot be executed. And arguments cannot be passed.

    -- solution 1
    tell application "Adobe Illustrator"
    open ("Macintosh HD:Users:username:Desktop:sample.jsx" as alias)
    end tell

    -- solution 2
    tell application "Finder"
    open ("Macintosh HD:Users:username:Desktop:sample.jsx" as alias) using ("Macintosh HD:Applications:Adobe Illustrator 2021:Adobe Illustrator. app:" as alias)
    end tell

  8. TIFF形式で書き出す時に日本語でファイル名をつけるとTIFFファイルのレイヤー名が文字化けする

    Illustrator ver25.3.1 ja_JP/Macintosh
    macOS10.15.6

    再現手順
    1.アートボード上にアートワークを用意する。
    2.ファイルメニュより「書き出し>書き出し形式」を選択しオプションのTIFFファイルを選択する。
    3.書き出されたTIFFファイルをPhotoshopで開くとレイヤー名が文字化けしている。

    結果
    TIFFファイルのレイヤー名が文字化けしている。

    期待する結果
    TIFFファイルのレイヤー名がver.25.2.3での結果のように正常に出力される。

    これは大勢に影響のない問題ですが、一連のUnicodeテキストの取り扱いに関する不具合だと考えられます。
    書き出されたTIFFファイルのイメージリソースブロック中の8BIMシグネチャ(TIFFファイルはリトルエンディアンですからファイル内のバイト順序は逆転してMIB8で保持されています)の関連する識別子が2つあります。このうちnormがシフトJISコードでビッグエンディアンにて記述されます。もうひとつのluniはUnicodeでリトルエンディアンで記述されるのが本来の状態です。このluniの方が文字化けを起こす要因です。しかし、どの様な変換エラーなのかまでは把握できませんでした。以下は不具合が生じている部分の抜粋です。いずれもファイル名は「テスト-1.tif」としています。

    ver.25.2.3による出力
    C630 B930 C830 2D00 3100

    ver.25.3.1での出力
    C900 6500 C900 5800 C900 6700 2D00 3100

    ※各文字コードはリトルエンディアンですからUnicodeLTとなります。
    ※最新版のPhotoshopはmormの方を正しく出力出来ないバグが存在します。

  9. Windows

    1 Windows 10 Pro バージョン20H2/プロセッサ Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-10875H CPU @ 2.30GHz/実装RAM 32.0 GB (31.8 GB 使用可能)/64 ビット オペレーティング システム、x64 ベース プロセッサ

    2 Illustrator2021で作成したデータを2022(最新版)で開き、デザインのバリエーションの作成を行おうとした。配置されている画像は2つ。うち1点の差し替えを行った。(Photoshopデータのリンクを変更)。差し替えた画像の大きさを変更するため、リサイズを行ったところ、アプリケーションがクラッシュ。復元データにより、1つ前の手順まではデータが残っており、作業の続行ができた。が、再び同じ作業(配置画像のリサイズ)でクラッシュ。
    3 続行したデータを開き直し、もう一度作業のやり直しをしようと思った。
    4 2つのリンク画像が消失した。『「」というリンクファイルが見つかりません』というアラートが繰り返し出る(「」というファイル名をつけたことはない)。エラーの起きていなかった配置画像も消失し、リンク情報そのものが消えてしまった。
    5 エラーの起きたデータを添付します。確認のため、開き直しているので日付がエラーの起きた当時のものではなく、本日のものに書き換わっているようですが、保存はせずに閉じています。

    Illustrator 製品版フィードバックにご協力いただきありがとうございます。

    日本語担当の PCM Maro です。
    すでに再編集で問題が解決されているとのことですが、いくつか補足説明させていただきます。

    『「」というリンクファイルが見つかりません』というアラートの「」ですが、本来ならばカッコ内にリンクファイル名が表示されるのですが、クラッシュにより、ファイル情報が欠落してしまったと思われます。(通常はリンク切れでもファイル情報は保存されています)

    今後、クラッシュが発生するような場合は、クラッシュ後に表示されるクラッシュレポートの送信機能をご利用ください。
    また、クラッシュの再現手順が明確であるような場合は、こちらの UserVoice にご登録ください。

    こちらのレポートは対応終了とさせていただきますが、コメントはオープンしておきますので、追加情報があるような場合は、コメントをお寄せください。

  13. Custom Colors convert to CMYK automatically, when we set "Effect->Blur->Gaussian Blur".

    When we apply Effect->Blur->Gaussian blur an object with a custom color, it will be converted to CMYK color in overprint preview mode.
    Also, when we export PDF, it will convert to CMYK.

    OSX 10.13.6

    The steps you were taking when you experienced the issues
    1. To make pathItems that colored Custom color.
    2. Select it and apply Effect->Blur->Gaussian Blur.
    3. Open Separation preview panel and check Overprint preview.
    4. Custom color objects seem to convert to CMYK.
    5. To export it to PDF, the custom color will discard and convert to CMYK.

  15. Drag to select Text in fields broken with update

    In the properties panel we are no longer able to drag to select the text in text fields. Very frustrating. This doesn't seem to be an issue in other text fields throughout the UI, mainly the properties panel.

  16. Dragging Objects with Shift key hold down broken

    After updating to Version 24.2 dragging objects with the Shift Key hold down does not work anymore. Instead of aligning the Object it forces it to stay in place. The same bug appears while doing "Alt-Drag" together with the Shift Key. This is a essential function in Illustrator an I think a lot of people use it every day. I will step back to the last version until this is fixed... Surprisingly this occurs only on one of our two Macs...

  17. Illustrator 2021 (Version 25.0.0) crashing when running Variable Importer script

    Ever since the update, the program crashes when you either "test" the files before importing the variables or even if you skip this step and directly choose importing the variables, it completely crashes the application. I require this script for my job and have a project due this Friday, October 30th 2020. Please address immediately.

  19. ExportOptionsPNG24.artBoardClipping broken in 2020

    ExportOptionsPNG24.artBoardClipping (set to false)

    In 2019 (23.1), PNGs exported by javascript are trimmed to the visible bounds of the object as expected when false. When true, they're the size of the artboard.

    In 2020 (24.3), the same script always produces PNGs the size of the artboard whatever artBoardClipping is set to.

    Illustrator 24.3 vs Illustrator 23.1
    Windows 10
    Script run via Illustrator (File/Scripts) as well as testing in ETSK 4.0.0.1

    It's a dealbreaker for version 24. We can't upgrade as a team unless this is fixed.
