  2. Chart inaccuracies

  3. Japanese version: Sidebar properties get clipped

    The values get clipped out and it's difficult to insert values....

    I think this is possibly because of poor localisation for Japanese UI as the Japanese text is larger and thus causes the clipping....

    This has happened on many occasions but as a sample I included an image of the settings of corner roundness of an object.

    I'm not sure if this happens on any other language UI's as I've only been using the Japanese version.

  6. Blob tool won't change size

    When I use the blob tool it won't change size from 1 pt. No matter if I change the size. It is very frustrating to use so I can do college homework.

    This issue is on both my Acer laptop with my Huion tablet and on my Surface Pro 3. I reinstalled the app on my laptop and didn't fix the issue.

  9. linear gradients switching to radial gradients unexpectedly

    Illustrator CC 2019 (both Mac and Win platforms) I teach at the college level. Numerous students have reported that they will create a linear gradient on a shape. When they continue editing other areas and return to that shape, the gradient has changed to radial. The linear gradient shape was not selected and they were not editing a gradient swatch. I cannot replicate this error. Any thoughts?

  10. Automatically Overprint ON in Gradient

    We have disabled Overprint in Gradient stroke for the particular eps. But once we save the eps file and again open the same eps in illustrator, automatically overprint enabled.

    Due to this we have received quality issue in Printer. So please let me know how to disable overprint for Gradient Stroke.

  11. Adobe Color Themes pop up is unnecessary and obstructive.

    When using the Adobe Color Themes panel, there's a pop up that says "Click to set active color" when you hover over color swatches. You can't click on the color beneath the pop up without first moving the mouse off of the pop up. It makes using the color themes panel slow and obnoxious. Please either move the location of the pop up off of the swatches one is trying to access, or remove it altogether (or give us an option to disable it)

    Turning off "Show Tool Tips" in preferences doesn't fix the issue.

    It is also an issue…

  12. Cursor disapears when against text frame

    Cursor can not be seen when at the beginning of a sentence as it blends in with text box. Please make text cursor larger/wider.

  14. mouse scroll zoom is broken when in pixel preview mode (PC)

    I just updated to Illustrator 2019 on a windows 10 PC

    Given I have any size project open
    And my "zoom to selection" preferences are on or off
    When I turn on pixel preview view mode
    And I have alt selected
    And I use my mouse to zoom in and out
    Then zoom chooses a random center point to anchor it's zoom

    I have no issues when in "over print preview" mode, or when using my keyboard in "pixel preview" mode.

  15. Color blend control panel

    Trying to change a fill in a preexisting color blend. Control panel only allows shifting the current blend, not adding or changing color. Any time the color pallet is selected, the blend control box disappears. Adobe is adding more features is cool, but taking away the basic features we've had for years is uncool.

  16. Template files (.ait) use/show the Adobe Swach Exchange (.ase) icon in Windows Explorer

    It's pretty much what the title says, .ait files show up in Explorer with the .ase icon. Everything works as expected though, double clicking it will open a new file in Illustrator, so this is purely a cosmetic issue.

    does a reinstall help? for some error it seems your registry entries have gone corrupt.
    Please accept my sincere apology for the inconvenience. 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.

  17. Print Area doesn't adjust according to Print Driver

    Once you print and click on setup, then proceed to set your printer up for custom sizes the print area in the print dialog box doesn't change. In order to get it to match the artboard and what you have inputted into the printers driver, you have to click on setup again and print. This adjusts the print area but this extra step is a bug.

  20. CC library window blanks out after trying to edit files.

    Adobe Illustrator CC 23.0.2, WIndows 10 Enterprise version 17032.

    Tried right clicking onto a file in a CC library file to 'edit', CC library window closes immediately. Tried to open again from the Windows tab, CC library window is void of any files and folders. It appears blank.
    This only happens if I tried to 'edit'. If I place any files directly from CC library it's fine.
