  1. Scaling proportionally not working with Use Preview Bounds enabled

    Hello :)

    Very weird issue happening at the moment. I was working on a file and realised some things which were supposed to be proportionate were not. I double checked and actually Illustrator was not scaling things proportionally!
    Video to show what happens.

    So far I've uninstalled Illustrator and re-installed it. Seems like keeping Preview Bounds off is the only thing that works. If you got any ideas please let me know :)

    Thank you <3

  4. Expanding an Inside / Outside stroke creates barely open paths

    1. Create a rectangle
    2. Apply a thick stroke to it and change its alignment to Inside or Outside
    3. Expand Appearance for the shape
    4. Deselect the shape
    5. Grab Direct selection and carefully move the corner points at the top right, for both paths

    It turns out Illustrator doesn’t keep these tidy! One is cut open, another has a doubled point! It leads to a problems later, when we try, e.g. to make corners rounded, or apply effects.

    A current workaround is to apply Add (as Pathfinder operation or an effect) to the stroke, separately form the fill... and it’s taxing for memory,…

  5. 「オーバープリントブラック...」の不具合

    OS/macOS11.6.8
    Illustrator.ver.27.7(以前のバージョンから同様の挙動と考えられます)

    スタイルの当たったテキストをCMYKの黒100でオーバーライドしたものに対して「編集→カラーを編集→オーバープリントブラック」を適用するとCMYK黒100の部分がスタイルのカラーにフォールバックする。

    再現方法
    1.テキストフレームを用意し塗りに対して明るい色を設定した段落スタイルを適用する。
    2.任意のテキストの塗りに対してCMY各0、K100のCMYKブラックを適用する。
    3.このテキストフレームを選択し「編集→カラーを編集→オーバープリントブラック」を適用する。
    4.CMYK黒で指定した部分は塗りに対してオーバープリントが設定されるが塗りがスタイルカラーに戻る。

    期待する結果
    「編集→カラーを編集→オーバープリントブラック」を適用してもスタイルを適用したあとでCMYKブラックをオーバーライドした部分の色が変わらずオーバープリント属性が設定される。

    実際の結果
    「編集→カラーを編集→オーバープリントブラック」を適用するとスタイルを適用したあとでCMYKブラックをオーバーライドした部分の色が変スタイルカラーに変わってしまう。

    回避方法
    スタイルを適用した部分を黒でオーバーライドする際はCMYKブラックではなくグレースケールのブラックを利用すると回避可能。

    また、スタイルが適用されたあとCMYKブラックをオーバーライドされた部分のあるテキストフレームをスクリプトにてoverprint属性を適用しようとした場合も同様にスタイルカラーに戻ってしまいます。

    回避方法がありますが、CMYKブラックとグレースケールブラックで挙動が異なるのは問題です。オーバープリントブラック処理は最終的に処理を行う場合が多い処理です。意図しない色変化が生じるリスクはできるだけ避けたほうが良いです。早急に改善いただきたいと思います。

  7. Global Edit not working correctly

    I use Global Edit to count objects. It often says "Global Edit is currently not supported for more than 1000 highlighted objects." I know that there are a lot less than 1000 objects that I am trying to highlight.

  8. 警告無しに文字詰めが変化する

    ver.27において、マイナーバージョンリリース又はマイクロバージョンリリースにおいてオプティカルカーニングの仕様が度々変更されています。これ自体は改善の意味合いの強い対応で仕様変更と考えます。
    しかし、仕様変更以前のバージョンの文字組み仕様が異なるにもかかわらず、なんの警告も無しに文字組みが変化します。こういったケースではユーザーに注意を促す警告を表示するべきでしょう。

    再現手順
    1. Illustrator ver.26.5にてエリア内文字を作成し文字間のカーニングを「オプティカル」に設定し、均等配置を指定する。
    2.Illustrator2020形式で保存する。
    3.Illustrator ver.27.9で開いてTツールを用いてエリア内文字にカーソルを入れるか、テキスト自体を移動する。
    4.カーニングの状態が変化する。

    期待する結果
    カーニングが変化する際は警告を表示する。

    実際の結果
    なんの警告もなくカーニングが変化する。

    理想を言えば、既存のファイルに対して新しいカーニング値を自動的に適用せずに以前と全く同じ表示にするのが良いですが、仕様の変更自体は改善の意味合いが強く、仕方ない面もあるかと思います。しかし、編集しているユーザーが、この変化に気が付かない事によりデータトラブルを誘発する可能性もあります。
    これは2022の最終バージョンが書き出す2020形式のファイルでも起こる挙動です。影響を受けるファイルは相当数存在するはずですから、せめて警告が表示されるようにしていただきたいと思います。

  9. Mixed stroke colors become white when changing fills using CMYK spectrum in an RGB document

    There is a way to make objects loose their stroke colors in specific conditions.
    1. Create an RGB document
    2. Create two shapes
    3. Make them have same fill color, but different stroke colors
    4. Select both
    5. In Control panel Shift+click the arrow button next to the fill chip, to call the alternate UI with sliders and spectrum instead of Swatches view
    6. In this dropdown panel’s menu pick CMYK

    Strokes become white.

    This does not happen if the color mode in this panel is left RGB or HSB.
    Also, strokes become white if you pick a color in…

  10. Drag and Drop from Photoshop Not Working

    Illustrator Version 28.3, Photoshop Version 25.5.1

    Attempting to drag and drop a layer from photoshop into illustrator and the object is not appearing in illustrator. I can usually do this with no issues. I've tried rasterizing and making the image a smart object but nothing seems to fix the bug. This has just been an issue within the past 2 days.

  12. カラーウィンドウの改善

    以前からカラーの数値入力はTabキーを使用して移動していました。
    2024年版は#が追加され、そこから更にTabキーを押すと上に移動せず全てのタブが閉じてしまいます。
    タブを閉じずに上の入力に戻るよう改善をお願いいたします。

  13. Dimension tool prefers to snap to or edit an existing dimension instead of starting or completing a new one

    Take a look at the GIF.
    I need to measure the width of one square, and then measure the overall width of both squares.

    I create the first dimension with no problem.
    However, when I try to create the second one, Ai plays dumb.

    When I click the leftmost point, the tool thinks that I am to EDIT the existing dimension (although I am clicking and not click-and-dragging, and I am clicking an endpoint of it, and not in the middle!)

    Well... I can lock the first dimension (which would require me to abort, select the first one, lock, and…

  15. Width tool started work weird after update 27.9

    After this update, width tool on closed shapes instead of acting like they are shapes with continuous edges, it cuts the width at a point.

    I use width tool a lot and this is problematic.

    Oh and in some cases width point not showing.

  16. Mockup (Beta) in Illustrator not working due to PARM error

    I am trying to use the Mockup (Beta) tool, and every time i get the "the operation cannot complete because of an unknown error [PARM]" message and the action cancels.

    I'm attempting to mockup using a compound path and a png. I've updated and reinstalled both the app and the mockup installer. I've also tried using the newest and previous versions of Illustrator. I've also removed my preferences and still no luck.

    Any ideas? I've used Mockup on this computer multiple times without error.

  17. Export As SVG - incorrect size

    I compared the results of the "Save As SVG" and "Export As SVG" commands.
    I found that the "Export" option often produces incorrect sizes, especially with patterns containing a lot of fine details.

    The decimal point settings are the same in both cases.

  18. Incorrect object size when exported to SVG - Illustrator v 28.4.1

    The latest Illustrator v28.4.1 generates slightly different SVG code compared to its precursors.
    Attached is the code generated by 28.3 and 28.4.1 of the same design.
    Then the latest version of the SVG file is loaded to my laser software (Glowforge) the design ends up being much smaller than it is supposed to be, for comparison a 12 cm square will only end up being 9 cm square. The issue disappeared once Illustrator was reversed to version 28.3 and files were re-opened and re-saved.

  20. Bug: exporting SVG's via exportFile(fileObjSingle, ExportType.SVG, svgOptions). has completely changed since 28.4

    (macOS & Windows, latest versions) Beginning with Illustrator 28.4, SVG files exported via Javascript are in a very different format.

    The following examples are exported with:

    doc.exportFile(fileObjSingle, ExportType.SVG, svgOptions);

    The SVG option for the format of the SVG is STYLEELEMENTS.

    See attached captures for the differences.

    There are many many changes:

    • the style definitions are handled differently
    • ID's now strip out characters like / or < instead of replacing them with entities
    • the original names are included via data-name tags
    • the comment from the 2nd line is now gone
    • clipping paths are handled differently

    I have built a complex program…
