  1. Blend Modes Hotkeys are broken

    Illustrator allows users to set custom hotkeys for blend modes, in Keyboard Shortcuts > Tools, right in the very bottom.
    Aside from direct commands for each available blend mode, there are two contextual keys: Next Mode and Previous Mode.

    They don’t work as expected. Let’s make a simple test.
    1. Assign Shift+9 (displayed as 'Shift+(' — which is not correct, actually) for Previous and Shift+0 ('Shift+(') for Next blend mode.
    2. Put two colored shapes in a stack, to see what’s happening when you change modes
    3. Open Transparency panel, to see which mode is chosen (for some reason Properties…

  2. Canvas Rotation Feature is obstructing regular pinching in or out gesture for zooming, when using the trackpad

    When using the pinching in or out gesture on the trackpad, to zoom in or out.
    The artboard gets rotated very easily if there is even a slight rotation in the gesture while.

    And then part 2 of problem. Its impossible to set it back to 0degrees. It keeps snapping between some low degrees

  3. Select all in an isolated group selects and allows to move locked and hidden objects

    Imagine a group. Let's isolate it and hide one object, lock another, and leave the third one as it is. Ctrl+A to select all and then move the selection. Illustrator then moves all the objects, despite it does not behave like this on canvas.

    If you check layers, you’ll see that Illustrator targets all children (double circle markers) but not a parent (the recent fix), and selects all objects including the parent (big square markers).

    If you try to move the selection, all objects get moved.

    This is not what happens if we try to select objects on canvas, locked…

  10. Black Boxes appear and Unable to zoom past 1600% when GPU performance is turned off in Illustrator 25.3.1

    Well, I updated illustrator today and have major viewing issues.

    Black Boxes appear when selecting outlined text with the direct selection tool, when moving a shape, and in the upper left corner when viewing artboard. Everything disappears when zooming in more than 2400% in Preview mode and has a pixelated outline.

  13. Jagged artefacts on edges of objects with gradient fills or transparency

    Revisiting a Logo Artwork that I did last year (created using V.24x), the artwork has now changed ... there are jagged lines around the edges of shapes that were filled with transparency gradients. (see pic 1) This is not due to any extra nodes; the underlying geometry is the same (see pic 2).
    If I use 'Flatten Transparency' it solves the jagged lines, but adds extra 'blocks' in the corners (see pic 3). This is not something that used to happen.
    This is not multiple objects stacked, so can't Ungroup and it isn't a compound path so I can't Release.

  14. Saving to Creative Cloud is Changing My Patterns

    This has to do with repeating patterns. I'm using Adobe Illustrator 2021, desktop.
    Attached is a picture of 2 circles on a background (shield your eyes, it isn't pretty :-)). When I make the pattern - in this case, the circles were drawn with the blob brush - the inside of the 2 circles is empty and we can all see the background. It's a ring. When I pull that pattern out of swatches, however, it will color in that background. In this one, it's black. It changes depending on the pattern and the colors I'm using. And it is…

  16. Blue learn box won't go away

    I cannot see part of my workspace because the blue learn box covers up the panels and I cannot get it to go away. How am I supposed to use your program when your supposedly helpful box covers up what I need to see in order to create projects? This is unbelievably frustrating, and I am probably going to have to use some other program to create my logo since I cannot use the work space because of this idiotic blue learn bubble that won't go away and can't be moved, apparently.

  17. 透明部分を含むグレースケールモードのPSDファイルを配置するとGPUプレビューできない。

    オペレーティングシステム macOS 10.15.6(imac20,1 32GBmem/1TBSSD/AMD Radeon Pro 5300_4GB)
    Illustrator CC ver.25.2.3

    問題が発生したときに実行していた手順
    1. CMYKドキュメントをGPU表示で編集中に透明部分を含むグレースケールモードのPSDファイルを配置する。
    2. GPUプレビューからCPUプレビューに切り替わり、以降、Illustratorを再起動するまでそのドキュメントでは先程の配置画像を除去してもGPUプレビュー表示に戻せない。

    想定していた結果
    GPU表示が正しく機能する。

    実際の結果
    CPU表示に強制的に切り替わってしまい、GPUプレビュー表示に出来ない。

    RGBモードのドキュメントではこの症状は発生しません。透明部分を含む画像形式であっても他の形式ではこの問題は発生しません。また、Windowsでは起きないとの報告を受けています。

  19. M1 Apple McBook - Crashing

    I just got a new MacBook Pro with the M1 Apple chip. Illustrator keeps freezing and crashing. It also causes my whole computer to crash! I heard many other people are having the same problem. It is unusable by this point!

    This issue (entire M1 McBook system freezes) is fixed for AI 25.0.1 and 25.1

    This fix takes effect in a day’s time, if you still face this entire system freeze then please follow the steps to update

    1). Backup your preferences and launch Illustrator with fresh preferences
    2). Quit and re-launch Illustrator once again
    3). Use Illustrator in your workflow

    If you see AI crash and entire system is not freezing then please create a new issue.

  20. reading XMP data in scripts broken by 25.4 update.

    Illustrator 25.4 update broke scripts that try to read XMP data that worked in previous versions of Illustrator. This is the Mac version (have not tried in Windows).

    It appears to be getting the error on this line:

    ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript = new ExternalObject('lib:AdobeXMPScript');

    Comparing the frameworks in the package contents for 25.3.1 vs 25.4, the AdobeXMPScript framework appears to be missing in 25.4.

    Below is an example script to read font data that worked in 25.3, but errors loading the library in 25.4

    // load XMP Library

    function loadXMPLibrary() {

    if (!ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript) {  
    
       try {  
    
           ExternalObject.AdobeXMPScript = new ExternalObject('lib:AdobeXMPScript');  
    
       } catch
