  4. Illustrator scales down pasted snagit captures

    Adobe Illustrator CC (2017.1.0.) always scales down pasted snagit captures, which is really annoying. No problems with the same action in PS.

  5. Disappearing Content

    After zooming in or isolating objects, other objects disappear upon zooming out. I have to select and isolate invisible objects in order for them to reappear.

  6. Illustrator Freezes + This Website Broken

    So I open an .ai in the latest version of Illustrator, everything works. I open another .ai file, everything freezes / stops working. I need to use Task Manager to close Illustrator. I reinstalled it, same issue.

    Regarding the website, when I click in Illustrator to submit a bug, it sends me to https://illustrator.uservoice.com/ where the 'Bug' button does not do anything. Are you for real, Adobe?!?!

    I managed to do a video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rTNATEzgjk - but of course, this time the program did not freeze.

  7. ps import

    ps files do not import correctly into AI. Transparent portions will render as gray. Some portions of the image fail to render at all. For example, this PDF ( from a ps file) will display differently in AI than any PDF viewer with the transparent background as gray.

  8. Ctrl key moves canvas in Illustrator rendering Ctrl-Z unusable

    Everytime I press the Ctrl key in Illustrator is moves the canvas right, making me unable to use ctrl-z or any other ctrl command because it defaults to moving the canvas, I'm pretty sure I have the latest version of Illustrator and the problem just started happening when I opened a psd file in it today. Didn't have this issue while using illustrator a few days ago.

  9. Bounding box is incorrectly displayed on multiple highdpi displays

    When using multiple monitors with different Hi-DPI settings on Windows OS, the bounding box for the selected item is sometimes displayed incorrectly.
    I work on a dual display setup: my primary monitor is a 15.6inch 4K display @ 200% DPI scaling settings, and my second monitor is 24inch 2560*1440 display @ 125% DPI scaling.
    When working on a larger second monitor, the bounding box for a selected item is displayed at an incorrect position, which makes the work very difficult.

  10. CSS Extraction tool code formatting issues

    Is there any way to alter the code formatting for this panel? It drives me nuts that the open bracket starts on a new line, all lines are indented with two spaces (seriously, who does two spaces? It's either four spaces or 1 tab), that there's a space before and after every colon, gives me both hex and rgba colors with no option to select just one, not to mention multi-word font family names aren't in quotes.

    This is almost a useful tool, if it didn't require so much cleanup after copying/pasting, and I shouldn't have to run it through…

  11. Illustrator does not change the colour profile of Swathes between open files of different color profiles

    See Case 0189293847.
    "Basic RGB" Colour Swatch does not change colour when switching files (tabs) of open files with different Embedded profiles.
    If you close down then open illustrator, it will take and then keep the swatch with that profile.

    Replication of error.

    1. Create .ai file that has the "ProPhoto RGB" assigned profile and save ensuring the ICC profile is embedded
    2. Create .ai file that has the "sRGB" assigned profile and save ensuring the ICC profile is embedded
    3. Edit>"Colour Settings", and set the Working Space RGB to "ProPhoto RGB"
      Tick on:

      • Profile Mismatches
      • Missing Profiles Press OK
    4. Close down Illustrator

  13. Get rid of the search pane in Illustrator

    If Adobe cannot figure out how to prevent the search pane from being selected by default, they should just eliminate it. I frequently paste complex elements from other files into the pane causing illustrator to crash, as the pane is selected with an active insertion point by default. Also it prevent certain (but not all) interaction with Illustrator until the window is clicked on. It is endlessly frustrating to the point of a breakdown. I have lost one monitor already to this problem. Please please fix this so the pane cannot ever be activated until directly clicked on

  15. 100% black will not output to film as 100%

    Came across this same issue now using CC 2017 but was able to isolate it. Customer file in CMYK color space, black at 100% nothing in the document except a 100% black rectangle. Illustrator reports 100% black but when output to film black is approximately 80%. Copying the entire content to a new document the output is at 100%. Using the original document and changing the color panel to grey scale black is 100%. Changing back to CMYK black is also 100% black. Placing the file into another dicument also produces 100% black. The latest file was created in CS6…

  16. Illustrator shows paths with extremely many points incorrect, without showing a warning to user

    Sometimes EPS files I want to open in Illustrator contain paths with many many points. When opening in Illustrator no warning is shown, but polygons are not shown correctly as the fill color is disappeared (and the polygon path seems to be broken/not closed anymore). Is the limit 32.000 points? If so: please enlarge this amount OR show a warning when opening a file: now users cannot trust your Illustrator here.
    Example file:

  17. Demo version of Illustrator crashes constantly, destroying files.

    Illustrator CC 21.1.0 (trial), MacBook Pro13,3 (15" with touch bar), macOS Sierra 10.12.3. It seems to happen mostly when editing colors or character/paragraph styles, but honestly it's hard to say, because it's seemingly random. I'd be happy to attach a copy of the file I was working on, but every version is gone now, even ones that were saved between crashes with different file names. You should have several crash reports via Apple, I hope. I can also upload console logs if needed, but I didn't find a folder for Illustrator.

  18. Copying hires 1-bit tiff takes to much time

    I have a document where I copy a hires 1-bit tiff.
    Then Illustrator just beachballs.
    This happens in the latest version of Illustrator CC 2017.
    I am on macOS 10.12.6 and have attached the file in question.

  19. Bounding box does not rotate correctly with certain elements

    If you take two lines and make an X shape and group it, when rotating this shape (say 30%), the bounding box resets to straight up and down (as opposed to rotating with the X shape) so any further scaling of this shape will be off. In this case, the X will become asymmetrical with any further scaling. This is a new bug as previously versions of Illustrator kept the bounding box oriented as it was originally.

    This is on a Mac with the latest Illustrator CC.
