  3. Paint Brush and Blob Brush Sizing Issues

    There is annoying sizing issues with Paint Brush and Blob Brush.

    1- Whenever i resize the paint brush tool, and then use the blob brush tool, ( which takes the same size as the paint brush ), then switch back to paint brush, the size of the paint brush reset to the default, although New art has basic appearance option is not active in the appearance panel.

    here is a video for better understanding.

  5. Missing functionality when using external displays

    When using multiple external displays, Illustrator New Document screen and Helpful Hints popups not displaying properly resulting in inability to see and select options necessary to create a new document or see all of the information in the popups and close the popups.

    I've called support twice without a resolution. Attempts to resolve have included updating both primary and secondary display drivers.

    Work around for creating new is to change Preferences to "Use legacy 'File New' interface", but this doesn't resolve the Helpful Hints popups which can't be closed as a result of this bug.

    My specific system configuration file…

  6. ungroup

    'Ungroup' keystroke (CTRL+SHIFT+G) does not work. I even went into the keyboard shortcuts and tried to reassign that keystroke to the command, and it won't let me. 'Group' (CTRL+G) works great. Clicking ungroup in the properties panel is the only thing that works.

  8. Artboard tooltip cannot be dismissed

    When I double click on an Artboard to open its properties, I receive a blue tooltip "Shift-click to select multiple artboards. Alternatively, Shift-drag to draw a marquee...". However, I am unable to dismiss this tooltip because the Artboard Options dialog is open, and that is at the highest z-index, and I cannot interact with any other interface unless I dismiss this dialog.

  9. GetPresetSettings function doesn't work correctly in CC 2017 and later

    In Illustrator CC 2017 (22.x) and CC 2018 (23.x) the AIDocumentList::GetPresetSettings function is broken. It still returns an error if the preset doesn't exist, but if the preset does exist, it returns 0, but doesn't fill in the AINewDocumentPreset structure.

  10. Illustrator and taskbar auto-hide

    I use the auto-hide feature for my taskbar on my dual-monitor Windows machine (specs below), but for some reason in Illustrator ONLY, I have to click out of Illustrator to access my taskbar. This does not happen in Ps, Ae or Pr
    So, if I'm working in Illustrator I have my main panel on my left monitor and my panes on the right. I have to click on my desktop below my panes to access my taskbar. (see screen shot)

  11. Illustrator not recognizing Arial font after setting up new computer

    HI All, Sorry if this is posted in the wrong spot, but this is my first post. I recently set up a new work computer (MacBook pro, High Sierra 10.13.6 ) to replace my older computer. I have typically made PDF's in illustrator using Arial font, but now when I open these older PDF's the text id highlighted as when the font is not recognized . as well if I import Arial text from excel it pastes it as symbols.

    It is possible there is a font conflict and you have multiple version of Ariel on your machine. e.g. a TTF and another OTF
    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.

  14. Menus are too large

    This is only an Illustrator problem where the drop down menus and dialog pop ups are way too large compared to the rest of the user interface. I've tried every solution. Running this on Windows 10 Pro on a 2K screen.

  16. Problem merging dates from CSV into graph

    When merging data into an Illustrator file to create a batch of bar graphs based on a group of CSV files, numerical dates merge into the graph data as numbers with decimals instead of dates. A 6/30/16 date merges into Illustrator as 6.00 and 12/31/16 becomes 12.00, so every date with the same month appears the same. This also messes up the graph, leaving the chart with two categories instead of one of the data columns being assigned to the x-axis.

    This includes when dates are formatted (in Excel) as text, and when the dates include hyphens or periods instead…

    Unless we get specefic actionable items it will not be possible for us to correct. Performance can be due to variety of reason a file type , a particular type of object on the file (e.g. a large raster), some interference with software that interfere with our event etc… Please help us to help you.

    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.

  18. Slow Saving of PDF to Network Share

    Whne trying to save PDF's to a network share the save time varies from instant to nearly 30 seconds. The size of the file does not matter, something small can hang with nearly the same chance of something large. The network share is gig e and the server and SAN are brand new and quite powerful. This issue only happens in Illustrator, no other program both Adobe and other vendor has this issue.

  19. Not responsonding

    Every time I am working in Illustrator & switch to a different app, Illustrator will hang when I return causing me to wait prior to returning to my work. So, for example if I am working on an illustration then go to google chrome to look at something online then return to my work in Illustrator it will hang & become unresponsive for a little bit of time (1 - 2 minutes) after waiting I can continue to work . I have already followed the steps outline by Adobe (found here: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/kb/optimize-illustrator-performance-windows.html) to increase performance within the app &…

    Microsoft 10, Illustrator CC 2018, will not print after recent upgrade.
