  2. Picking a colour from the Library, randomly opens the colour picker

    I've got a shared library with assets and colours to use in the work we're doing. When I have an object selected and I pick the colour from the library, it's 50/50 if the colour picker dialog box is going to open or not. I don't want it to open, I've clicked the colour I want to use, so why does it pop up and get in the way? Really annoying!!

  4. Editing size of library element is broken: modifying canevas size in CC library object changes the object's scale in existing documents

    To replicate this, create a square with a fill and no stroke in a new document. Drag the square into the library panel to create a library element. Drag an instance of the library element you just created back into the document. You will have two identical squares, one which is just a plain square, the other which is a library element.

    Edit the library element and make it a different height. Save the changes and go back to the document. The library element is now not the same width as the original square, although you didn't edit that. If…

  6. Tools not working.

    Some tools not working. When I click on the text tool I get something that looks like a pencil with a circle with a slash through it underneath the pencil-brush-pen-line tools. I deleted preferences and nothing helps. This is very aggravating.

  9. the font style file has not been installed

    Just recently purchased CC 2018. Although I have been using Illustrator since 1998, this is the first time I have worked with CC. And I'm having issues with the Type in Illustrator - it seems the font style file has not been installed [???] - for example with the Font Myriad Pro - there should be an option of regular, regular italic, bold, bold italic, etc - I can only get regular.

    This issue HAS to be resolved or there is no point in continuing to use CC 2018. Please let me know what I need to do - does…

  12. Place Jumbling Points on Artwork

    MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6 Illustrator 22.1

    I was working on an ad and placed the logo of the company and part of the logo looked strange. Turns out it is jumbling random points on random outlines of the logo.

    Regular place.

    Jumbled partial logo.

  14. Windows 10: Libraries panel - item naming bug

    On Windows, Ctrl + Left/Right Arrow allows you to navigate text by jumping between words. If you use Ctrl + Shift + Left/Right Arrow, it will also select as you jump between words.

    The bug: In Illustrator, when typing a name for an item in the Libraries panel, if you try to use either of these shortcuts, it will also move the selected graphic on the artboard.

    Solution: stop sending any keyboard input to the main Illustrator window when typing a name in the Libraries panel.

    Sorry we could not understand the issue. We do not support shifting between words using shortcuts but it should not be placing art on your file if you are in rename mode on the library panel
    Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

  15. Devanagari scripts

    The use of devanagari scripts in most Creative Suite is really laborious. It took me a long time before finding the way to have a correct display of simple copy/paste from Word or any other source of hindi or sanskrit texts by adjusting, in TWO différents dialog boxes the appropriate settings. I finally found the way to do it but, as I wanted to use a composition in a webpage, I exported my composition as SVG, and the result was just terrible: no word was correctly spelled and I had to retype all of them in Dreamweaver (which has a…

  16. Legacy "save as" from CC2018 does not work

    "Save as" to legacy CS6 , CS5, etc. from CC2018 does not work - although it looks like it does. Trying to open the file in CS6 will get an error that the file was created in a newer version. To confirm the file has not been converted to CS6 (or other legacy version), check the file window. It will display no version number and right-clicking on the file and choosing "get info" will also show no version number.

    To work around the bug, launch CS2017 and "save as" to the desired legacy version. You will now see a version…
